    Showing they have no sense of morality, no grasp of corruption and no understanding of what defines a criminal, CNN gives us another one of those ubiquitous year in review stories, this one titled "Politicians who fell from grace in 2008." In this one, CNN has decided to reveal for us their top eight politicians that found 2008 to be a "career-buster" because of their "crimes and misdemeanors" or their outrageous controversies. CNN features corruption mired Rod Blagojevich, the sex crazed Elliot Spitzer and John Edwards, and the criminal bribe taker Ted Stevens among four others. Each of these men...

    It's final. I've talked to some Freepers and we have decided to boycott CNN. You may ask why them and not MSNBC (which is more liberal) or someone else. Well, CNN is more standard and it seems like everyone in this nation takes this giant news outlet at face value. It's time we attack and attack now. Read on...

    What do you do when you are a journalist and you let your guard down with a blog posting claiming that Hurricane Dean was God's Wrath For President Bush? Why you later claim, heh-heh, that you were really joking all along and only meant to satirize Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell for statements made almost 6 years ago. Such was the lame excuse of former CNN reporter in response to my exposure here on NewsBusters of his Bush Derangement Syndrome in Former CNN Reporter Suggests Hurricane Dean God's Wrath Against Bush that I posted yesterday. My point, of course, wasn't that Feldman really...

    One can get an idea of just how far severe Bush Derangement Syndrome has spread in the MSM by reading this blog posted by Charles Feldman, a CNN correspondent from 1983 to 2004. Now freed from the constraints of pretending to be unbiased in public, Feldman lets his BDS hang out for all to see in The Feldman Blog edition of August 17, Hurricane Dean: God’s Wrath For President Bush? Hurricane Dean, soon to be up graded to a full blown Category 5 hurricane, is taking aim at Texas…the state that gave us George W. Bush. In fact,this could be a...

    CERSKA, Bosnia (Reuters) -- The 18-year-old gunman who shot five people to death in a Salt Lake City, Utah, shopping mall was a survivor of the siege that ended in the Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslims in Bosnia's 1992-95 war, a cousin said on Wednesday. Sulejman Talovic, who was killed by police after Monday's shooting spree in which he also wounded four people, fled his village with his family during the Bosnia war to Srebrenica, a U.N.-protected enclave, Redzo Talovic said. They spent two years in the town, during which Bosnian Serb forces besieged the enclave and Talovic's grandfather was...

    SAN DIEGO The chair of the House Armed Services Committee asked the Pentagon today to remove C-N-N reporters embedded with U-S combat units. The network televised portions of a video on Wednesday showing insurgent snipers targeting U-S military personnel. Executives said the tape came to the network unexpectedly through contact with an insurgent leader. Representative Duncan Hunter wrote in his letter that, quote, "C-N-N has now served as the publicist for an enemy propaganda film featuring the killing of an American soldier." San Diego-area Republicans Darrell Issa and Brian Bilbray also signed the letter. C-N-N executives defended their decision to...

    Saturday after Thanksgiving is the traditional day to purchase stamps for my annual Christmas card mailing... [snip] So, shortly before noon on that most recent post-turkey day, I sauntered into a neighborhood "U.S. Postal Store," [snip] and headed for the stamps-only section. I quickly found a packed wall of display racks offering a panoply of first-class postage devoted to the various elements of the year-end holiday season, specifically: 1) Christmas, featuring colorful, contemporary designs of Santa Claus with an array of inanimate, secular Yule symbols; 2) Kwanzaa, with not just one but two stamps promoting a totally fabricated "harvest holiday"...

    Just in time for Christmas, America's two largest news magazines devote this week's cover stories to debunking the story of Jesus' birth. Among the conclusions in Time and Newsweek: Jesus was born in Nazareth, not Bethlehem; there is little evidence of three kings following a star, and the story of the virgin birth may have been borrowed. "The Nativity saga is neither fully fanciful nor fully factual but a layered narrative of early tradition and enduring theology," Newsweek writes in examining the Sunday-school version of the birth of Christ. This may be unwelcome "news" to most Americans. A Newsweek poll...

    In a not-so-surprising move on the part of CNN employees, they placed an image of President Bush and his wife Laura on their homepage, and named the photo image '!@#hole.jpg.' The photo has since been renamed and by 9:30AM, !@#hole.jpg was removed from their server. This story first posted by Paul at WizBangBlog.com.

    During a commencement address at the U.S. Air Force Academy, President Bush compared the War on Terror to World War II and cast the Middle East as a critical front akin to wartime Europe. Define the term "rhetoric," and discuss how words can be used as "weapons" and to sway political opinion. Then, examine the choice of words used by President Bush in his speeches pertaining to Iraq and the War on Terror. Inform students that Bush's address at the U.S. Air Force Academy was the second of six speeches before the June 30 handover of power in Iraq. Yesterday's...

    Wednesday, April 23, 2003Hollywood Appeasers Cash In on Anti-U.S. RantsDon't believe the whining of Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon and other Tinseltown leftists who claim they're paying a price for opposing Operation Iraqi Freedom. They're getting rich from their anti-U.S. activism, according to the liberal Washington Post. Consider this boast from Janeane Garofalo, who still refuses to make the apology she so publicly promised after Iraqi citizens welcomed their U.S.-led liberators. "I knew when I started speaking out that it was going to be unpleasant, and I’ve taken my punches. But the positives have far outweighed the negatives,” she...

"Withholding information that would get innocent people killed was the right thing to do, not a journalistic sin," Jordan insisted in the memo reported in Tuesday's Washington Post by Lisa de Moraes.     Jordan wrote: "Some critics say if I had told my Iraq horror stories sooner,...

But not when it interferes with the bottom line apparently. After all CNN...
