    Coloring the News ^ | William McGowan
    This is from the "Preface" of William McGowan's highly acclaimed book, "Coloring the News," in which he shows how affirmative action can result in death. It's the story of one Patrick Chavis, an unqualified black who was granted admission to the University of California at Davis Medical School under a special minority preference program. He "bumped out" a qualified white student, Allan Bakke. Bakke was admitted to another medical school and became a successful physician. But Chavis had a notorious practice and his incompetence disfigured and actually killed patients. Above all, it's the story of how the MSM served as...

    Since Watergate, establishment American journalists have taken as their first commandment, Marx’ eleventh and last thesis on Feuerbach: “Philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways, but the point is to change it.”Marx was calling for revolutionary action. Today’s pampered, pc journalists engage instead in radical misrepresentation, act as mouthpieces for their revolutionary allies, and silence their opponents. And so it is, with radical homosexuals’ attempt to destroy, or as they would say, “transform,” civilization through its most fundamental institution, marriage. And the mainstream media have signed on to the program.On Thursday, February 26, WNBC-TV’s 11 p.m. news devoted...

    Enter Stage Right ^ | 9 February 2004 | Nicholas Stix
    During 2003 the seemingly constant journalistic scandals at the New York Times caused reporters and editors who were busy corrupting the news at less notorious outlets to be overlooked. In addition to the Jayson Blair scandal, there were the newspaper of record's l'affaires Rick Bragg, Lynette Holloway and Maureen Dowd; the resuscitation of the Sally Hemings Hoax; the matter of the non-existent terrorist attack in Iraq reported by "Pfc. Jose Belen"; the newspaper's postmortem castration of photographer Marvin Smith; its premature burial of dancer Katharine Sergava; and editorialist and Jefferson-hoaxer Brent Staples' baseless smear, claiming that Strom Thurmond had raped...
  • All Books Not Fit To Review (more NY Times bias)

    <p>The New York Times Book Review (search) is considered the industry bible of what’s hot and what’s not in books. But the publication is coming under increasing fire for what some authors are calling a liberal bias.</p> <p>“I think a paper that says ‘All the News That’s Fit to Print’ has a responsibility of covering most things,” said Doug Dutton, manager of Dutton’s bookstore in Los Angeles. “But I think it would be disingenuous to say that the New York Times doesn’t have a leftist slant.”</p>
  • The Media's Gay Mafia "Queers" the News

    Middle American News/A Different Drummer ^ | July, 2003 | Nicholas Stix
    In their quest to "queer" America, radical homosexual activists in the media destroy lives, as they manipulate the principle of privacy, and make war on traditional masculinity, sports, and even the truth. In late April, Sen. Rick Santorum (R, Pa.) got a taste of what awaits anyone who opposes the gay agenda. After explaining to Associated Press reporter Lara Jakes Jordan (who is married to Sen. John Kerry’s (D, Ma.) campaign manager, Jim Jordan) his opposition to any pro-gay laws or court rulings that might weaken the family, gay activists demanded that Santorum resign. But the Santorum case was only...

    Send In The Clowns The Jayson Blair story is over. As New York cops might say to crime-scene spectators, ‘Move along, there’s nothing to see.’ I know this, because Times columnist Frank Rich told me so. On June 15 (six-and-a-half weeks after Blair’s resignation), in an essay entitled “15 Minutes Became 5 Weeks,” Rich described the Blair scandal as a “mediathon,” not unlike the coverage of Martha Stewart, for whom Rich suddenly had great sympathy. Rich defined a mediathon as "a relentless hybrid of media circus, soap opera and tabloid journalism we have come to think of as All...

    We tend to give more credibility to groups on the liberal side of the spectrum than on the conservative side. . . . We [journalists] have to guard against falling into groupthink. —Tom Fiedler, executive editor, The Miami Herald If I were still teaching journalism, as I used to at New York University and the New School, we'd spend time on George Seldes, I.F. Stone, Murray Kempton, Jimmy Breslin, Dorothy Rabinowitz, and Bob Herbert. Of the assigned books, one would be mandatory: Coloring the News by William McGowan (Encounter Books). McGowan's reporting and commentary have been in The New York...
