  • Indianapolis Star lays off 62 in cost-saving purge

    06/21/2011 6:54:29 PM PDT · by digger48 · 17 replies ^ | June 21, 2011 | CorySchouten
    The Indianapolis Star on Tuesday laid off 62 employees including more than 15 percent of its newsroom staff in the latest round of cost-cutting by Gannett Co. Inc., the newspaper's parent company. Among those laid off in Indianapolis were 26 newsroom employees including 12 copy editors and eight reporters, mostly those covering suburban news. The Star also eliminated 19 open positions, said Robert King, the newspaper's religion and philanthropy reporter and president of the Indianapolis Newspaper Guild. "The Indianapolis Star, I’ve been told repeatedly, continues to make money," King wrote in an e-mail. "Yet Gannett, and its corporate bosses in...
  • Sarah Palin: Not being a candidate 'liberating'

    Coming off her week-long One Nation bus tour that was widely seen as a test-run for a presidential campaign, Sarah Palin says she’s starting to see that running for president might not be the best fit for her. “Not only do I love my freedom of not having a title and being a declared candidate — that is liberating — I know you can make a difference as an individual,” she said. “Hopefully, I can inspire others to know that you don’t need a title. You don’t need to be in office to effect positive change.”

    RUSH: I want to move on to Sarah Palin now. You know the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour? You know the...? That was actually, ladies and gentlemen, an experimental movie that the Beatles made about a bus tour, and nobody could figure out what the Beatles were up to, either. By the same token nobody knows what Palin's up to. They're all trying to figure it out. The Drive-Bys are trying to figure out what Palin is up to. Now, the interesting thing is that whatever it is she's doing, she is doing it bypassing the media. She's doing an end-around...

    Palin is rubbing the media mob’s sense of entitlement right back in its face. In the 1970s, The Boys on the Bus exposed how a clubby pack of male political reporters ruled the road to the White House and shaped the news. Four decades later, an outsider gal from Alaska has commandeered the 2012 media bus — and left Beltway journalism insiders eating her dust. We’ve come a long way, baby. Amid frenzied speculation over her potential presidential-campaign plans, former GOP Alaska governor Sarah Palin launched an all-American road trip with her family this Memorial Day weekend. Establishment media types...

  • Corporate Media Tunes Out Progressive Radio (Barf Bag Alert)

    We all know the radio talk shows overwhelmingly are dominated by Attila the Hun types—the kind that think the war in Iraq is going just dandy. A new report released today by the Center for American Progress and Free Press puts hard data to the extremist right tilt on the nation’s radio waves. According to the report, The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio, 76 percent of the news/talk programming in the nation’s top 10 radio markets is “conservative” (read: far-right), while 24 percent is progressive. In four of those top 10 markets—Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas and Houston—the domination of conservative...

    The ‘Left-Wing’ Media? by Robert W. McChesney and John Bellamy Foster This article is a version of material that will appear in the authors' The Big Picture: Understanding Media through Political Economy, to be published by Monthly Review Press in December 2003. Citations for this piece will be available there. If we learn nothing else from the war on Iraq and its subsequent occupation, it is that the U.S. ruling class has learned to make ideological warfare as important to its operations as military and economic warfare. A crucial component of this ideological war has been the campaign against “left-wing...

    Fiedor Report On the News #281 ^ | 8-4-02 | Doug Fiedor
    For some reason, most in today's liberal corporate media like to refer to liberal politicians as "moderate" or "centrists." That's the media's way, evidently, of softening the blow of their discussions of unconstitutional proposals. It is also usually an obvious lie. For instance, during his first presidential campaign, the media informed Americans that Bill Clinton was a moderate Democrat. Even after the Clinton administration tried to socialize the whole of the American medical delivery system, the media still referred to him as a moderate, rather than the socialist he is. My unanswered question to a media honcho was simple: "Moderate...
