    CNBC at it again today. Now defending Kerry for his slanderous comments. CNBC playing it out as a "botched joke" or at worst a "poor statement"! Again, nothing to do with business or the markets. The are relentless in these past few days. Anything they can do to support the democrats.

    Anybody watching cnbcBS today? All day democratic telethon. Anti Bush- Anti-economy news all day. This coming from a business channel whose target audience are financial professionals and successful people with investments to manage. Nice work, NBC... they could be doing a program on the Miami Heat and they would find a way to bash Bush.

    AP Boo-boo? News group works quickly to cover its tracks on Bush speech Viewers around the world tuning into BBC World Report on Friday night learned that when President Bush told a Milwaukee crowd earlier that day that former President Clinton was in the hospital that the crowd booed the mention of Clinton’s name. For that matter, the same report appeared for hours on the famed "Drudge Report" Web site. Ditto for the Boston Globe Web site. TV stations around the country picked up the report that also aired on countless radio stations. If you’d like a clear indication of...

    Since its beginning in the 1988 U.S. Presidential election, the IEM has established a reputation for forecasting election results with great accuracy, with an average prediction error of 1.37 percent. The latest quotes are looking ominous for Republicans. The markets are pricing a 23-25% chance that the Republicans win both the House and the Senate versus a 27-28% chance that the Dems will win both! The most likely outcome seems to be Republicans taking the house and Dems taking the Senate--- the market is .45 bid .49 offer (45-49% chance) I have been watching the Iowa Electronic Markets for about...

    Has anyone seen the obnoxious "Stop the Hate" commercial on Bloomberg television? It stars several liberal Hollywood actors. Here is a letter I wrote in response to the slanderous ad. I hope other freepers who are annoyed with seeing this commercial over and over all day long will drop Bloomberg a little love note. Dear Bloomberg TV, You have been running a commercial repetitively everyday that tells America how we should all stop hating. It cites as fact that there is multiple hate crimes since Sept 11th. Independent studies and polls have shown this not to be a fact. If...

    Freedom fighters by Kate MacDonald, Staff Writer May 09, 2002 One of the most influential and monumental First Amendment battles of this new millennium is being fought in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The unhappy marriage of print media and the Internet has finally reached an impasse. Free Republic bills itself as a "loosely organized group of grassroots Americans who support the constitution and look for honesty, integrity and honor from those in government." Nice PR. Really, this staunchly conservative activist group's popularity and fondness for a good battle have turned quite a few heads on Capitol Hill. Active...

    ALEC BALDWIN FOR PRESIDENT? By Bess Rattray Alec Baldwin does not want to be Senator, Governor, or President...Yet. He has Kennedy's charisma, Reagan's hair and the wonky passion of Ralph Nader, but he swears he's not a politician. Bess Rattray surveys the role he was born to play. Stories about movie stars are supposed to open with a meal, over which the actor discloses his or her hard-won sense of satisfaction with the world: Cameron Diaz and a plate of steak frites reach new levels of personal awareness; Brad Pitt, contemplating a mesclun salad with ciabatta croutons, posits that a ...
