So, the Pulitzer awards based on lies about Katrina are okay according to this putz because of the discontent with President Bush.

So the covers have been pulled back re those who select the Pulizter prizes.

If the maggots lie about President Bush in the Wire Tapping/NSA story or the Katrina fiasco, that becomes Pulitzer Prize material.

Now this maggot is defending that bias as great reporting.

The Pulitzers should be renamed the Politically Awards.

Example:
How many Pulitzers do Maureen Dowd and Thomas Friedman have?
How many Pulitzers does Mark Steyn have?
QED!

The illuminati showing "discontent" is just further evidence that Bush is doing the right things.

We now know that the press was lying - flat-out, bald-faced lying - when they expressed concerns that the "outing" of Valerie Plame had compromised national security and that leaks which compromise national security are unconscionable. I repeat, they were lying, day in and day out. The Pulitzer prizes for the wiretapping story and the secret prison story prove without a doubt that the news media care not a whit for national security, about illegal leaks, or anything other than their own political agendas.

He also believes the press has the right to print stories (lies?) compromising national security and the safety of our troops at war. My contempt for these cretins is beyond description.

Steve, thanks for the short summary of the massive lies and spins put out by the NY Slimes to bash President Bush since 2000.

Anything goes when it comes Bush Bashing. If the writers are creative enough in their Bush Bashing, they might win a Bush Bashing Pulitzer!

There were two given out yesterday that were very special, to a reporter and photographer from the Rocky Mountain News who with dignity and grace followed a Marine Major as he had the task of notifying wives and relatives of the loss of a loved one in Iraq. I will not be cynical and say it is a anti-war feature as it is not. It was very well done and deserves viewing by all here, as much as the Flight 93 movie does.

" . . . accurately reflected the nation's growing discontent with President Bush."

Circular reasoning. The nation's "growing discontent with President Bush" is largely based on lies and distortions fostered by the media. So the author should say that "the nation's growing discontent with President Bush reflects the news media's relentless and unfair criticisms of Bush." Such as the "Katrina fiasco," a "fiasco" in which the actual deaths (1,400 - 2,000) constituted about 3% of what had been predicted by computer models (60,000+). And even though everyone goes about their business as always, save for slightly longer waits at airports, the media has everyone convinced that our civil liberties have been utterly destroyed, or are about to be.

E.D. Hill did a good mini-editorial on the Slime's awards on Fox & Friends this morning. She stated that the prize should not be given to reporters who write articles with a built in bias just to make a president look bad and use revelations of national security secrets to do so.

Actually, we and others have hitting the NY Slimes where it hurts re circulation drops and ad $ drops. That has ended up in massive drops in their Stock Value over the past two years. Below is the comparison of the NYT stock versus SPY, the S&P 500 in the past 2 years.

NY Slime stock owners should award the Putz Prize to the NY Slimes publisher, editors and hostile maggots pretending to be newspaper people.

People who work at journalism full time ought to be able to do a better job of it than people for whom it is a hobby. But that's not going to happen as long as we "professional" journalists ignore stories we don't like and try to hide our mistakes. We think of ourselves as "gatekeepers." But there is not much future in being a gatekeeper when the walls are down.

Good idea. Both keyword=msm and abb seem to return at least a partial superset of those stories. Probably too many stories. Careful readers may notice an overarching story to my linked headlines.

Coupled with seemingly accelerating bad news we also see a most intriguing coda:

Perhaps your kind wake-up call to me for less detail indicates a need for an executive summary that tells the overarching story using embedded keywords on each bullet point. :)

How about MSMWOES a keyword.

If we restricted it to financial woes, circulation woes and stock market woes, it would be a great key word.

I wasn't sending a wake up call, I never fully wake up until 10 am Pacific Time.

Ernest at the Beach, when I first started posting on FR taught me the importance of key words to indexing important stories.

You have done a great job of indexing these threads/stories. I just don't have skills nor patience to do that job. So I like the to find key words to use.

So what do you think of MSM Woes as a short key word?

PS: ABB has done a great job finding and posting these stories of MSM Woes. When I wake up in California and stumble into my office to start my computer, ABB has been working at least 3 hours posting these great articles of MSM Woes.

The last real Pulitzer (by marriage) sold the St. Louis Post Dispatch with one of the condition being that it would remain a liberal rag.

I don't know if Mz Emily has any say-so in the naming of the award recipients, but if she did it's going to be a Bush Basher, leading more to the left than the Tower of Pisa.

Point taken. (Unless I misunderstand your point. :) ) Perhaps my passion to return journalism to its freewheeling days of the 1700s makes me appear envious. LOL. OTOH my gate/gatekeeper metaphor makes me feel like a genuine Central Valley Christian Zionist while capturing the change of biblical proportions now taking place in the centuries old newsprint business IMHO.
