    Does watching Fox News rot your brain? According to a report released last month by at the University of Maryland, "Misinformation and the 2010 Election," the more people watch Fox News, the more they are "misinformed." The allegation rapidly became a favorite topic for leading mainstream news outlets including The New York Times, U.S. News and World Report, CBS News, Slate, The Atlantic. Even major newspapers in Canada and the U.K. covered the report. Of course, left-wing websites -- the Talking Point Memo, Media Matters, and the Daily Kos -- reveled in the findings. The report asserted that Fox...

    With CBS chief executive wife Julie Chen safely ensconced in CBS's new daytime gabfest "The Talk," CBS News got the all-clear to announce, just in time for the holiday season, that it was giving other members of "The Early Show" on-air team the old heave ho-ho-ho. Gone, as of Jan. 3, will be anchors Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez and weatherman Dave Price. The network wants you to know, however, that they will continue to be employed on air by CBS News - just elsewhere.
  • CBS and AP Photoshop Racist Picture of Obama

    CreativeMinority Report ^ | November 04, 2010
    How can CBS News explain this photoshopped picture? What possible explanation could they have? Accompanying their election coverage on their website, CBS published this photoshopped picture of a half black/half white President Obama with Republicans and Democrats on either side of him as if to say he is split between the two. Needless to say Obama's white side is on the side of the GOP's John Boehner and Eric Cantor. His black half is on the side of Harry Reid and Charles Schumer. Are they saying that Obama will have to act white with Republicans? How could anyone think that...
  • (Video) CBS News on Sarah Palin: Shrewdest Political Figure Most Electric In Country

    11/03/2010 8:41:38 AM PDT · by MaxCUA · 8 replies
    Most of the candidates Sarah Palin endorsed chalked up victories Tuesday. And that scorecard leaves pundits wondering whether she'll now train her sights directly on the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. As CBS News Correspondent Jeff Glor reports, .the former GOP vice presidential nominee backed 43 candidates for the House. Thirty of them won, with races involving nine others still undecided. Her record in Senate races was closer: She endorsed 12 candidates. Seven won. Though it's been 15 months since Palin stepped down as Alaska governor, she was very much in this election, stumping for candidates across the country, skewering...

The reporters are also overheard hoping for violence against Miller so they can "send out a tweet" and Facebook alert that "Miller got punched" at a rally he held four days ago. The apparent accidental...

    Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell has backed out of an appearance tomorrow on CBS's "Face the Nation" with no explanation to the network. "They just emailed us and said she needed to cancel," said Mary Hager, "Face the Nation's," senior producer. O'Donnell's abrupt cancellation comes after scores of stories have emerged about extreme comments she has made in the past about issues ranging from condom usage to human brains being inserted into mice. The Republican has appeared on TV since her victory in Tuesday's primary, but she now may be heeding the advice bestowed earlier this week by Sarah...

    With a new round of layoffs expected this fall, CBS News is being trimmed to the bone. Rebecca Dana on the dramatic drop in ratings, strange BlackBerry blackouts, and eager suitors for anchor Katie Couric. On Monday, Katie Couric begins her fifth, and quite possibly final, year of hard labor as anchor of the CBS Evening News. However she chooses to mark the occasion, it will no doubt be more subdued than the tears, dancing, and $10 million promotional campaign that attended her debut on Sept. 5, 2006.

  • Raw Video Discovered Showing Katie Couric Mocking Name of Sarah Palin’s Son “Track” – Video

    08/04/2010 12:40:47 PM PDT · by Justaham · 33 replies
    Here is video of CBS News Anchor Katie Couric during the 2008 Presidential Campaign being caught on video mocking Sarah Palin and her family during a practice session just days before the Republican National Convention. Couric is seen mocking the name of Palin’s son “Track” after reading his name, and later doing the same with the name of Palin’s hometown – Wasilla, Alaska. The video is instructive in that it shows the behind-the-scenes bias against Palin that was actually quite obvious during broadcasts as well.

    Another round of layoffs is said to be coming to CBS News, according to two veteran producers at the network. "My understanding is that the cuts are coming this month. I've heard this from the highest level," says one producer. If the cuts are made, it will be the third major round of layoffs at the network since 2008. In February, 75 staffers lost their jobs. This time, though, it could be the business side's turn under the axe. "I can't imagine there's another 75 people to whack on the news side," the producer said. A spokesperson for CBS declined...

    Is there anything a journalist cannot or will not twist to bring the topic back to how life would be so much better if only not for that awful George W. Bush? On Tuesday's CBS Evening News, with the help of the Washington Post's Sally Quinn, Sharyl Attkisson managed to blame news, that Al and Tipper Gore are separating, on how they never got over being denied the presidency despite winning the popular vote in 2000. If only Bush hadn't taken it from them. Attkisson recalled “it's been ten years since that oddly public passionate kiss at the Democratic convention....

    Conservative Examiner ^ | 5/31/2010 | Anthony G. Martin
    In less than 3 minutes last night on CBS's 60 Minutes, commentator Andy Rooney essentially negated the enormous personal sacrifice of countless men and women who gave their lives for their country. Rooney's Memorial Day commentary was nothing more than a hit-piece that minimized the nature of the sacrifice of Patriots--the notion that freedom is not free, and that freedom is worth dying for if necessary. While giving a nod to those who died in war, Rooney stated that, 'They did not give their lives. Life was taken from them.' In a sense, of course, he is right. Soldiers do...
