  • Dallas Morning News Headed For Bankruptcy for Attacking Trump

    09/24/2016 3:37:31 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 85 replies ^ | Sep 22, 2016 | Brenda Corpian
    Due to the one of the most asinine endorsements of the century, revenue has hit rock bottom for the Dallas Morning News as thousands of the Dallas newspaper subscribers are cancelling their subscriptions. The moronic endorsement broke a 75-year streak in the paper’s history of endorsing Republicans, and generated a lot of reader pushback in the form of angry comments and vows to unsubscribe from the paper. Although Dallas is relatively liberal, the state hasn’t gone Democrat in a presidential election in 40 years. On September 6th the Morning News foolishly announced that they were refusing to endorse Donald J....
  • Dallas Morning Snooze : We recommend Hillary Clinton for president (barf alert)

    Dallas Morning Snooze ^ | 09/07/2016 | Staff
    There is only one serious candidate on the presidential ballot in November. We recommend Hillary Clinton. We don't come to this decision easily. This newspaper has not recommended a Democrat for the nation's highest office since before World War II — if you're counting, that's more than 75 years and nearly 20 elections. The party's over-reliance on government and regulation to remedy the country's ills is at odds with our belief in private-sector ingenuity and innovation. Our values are more about individual liberty, free markets and a strong national defense.
  • Down the Memory Hole: In 2008 Obama campaign booted 3 newspapers off his campaign plane

    American Thinker ^ | 19 June 2016 | Thomas Lifson
    The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trump’s revocation of the Washington Post’s campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them. Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances: The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls...

    Full title: Despite All Empirical Evidence to the Contrary, Dallas Morning News Opines that Voter ID Suppresses Votes The Dallas Morning News is against voter ID laws. It makes that plain in this editorial, and then relies on a “study” to make its faulty case. The new research asserts that the tougher laws are part of a GOP strategy aimed at keeping minority and low-income voters away from the polls, despite the fact that widespread voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent. Research from University of Massachusetts at Boston sociologist Keith Bentele and political scientist Erin O’Brien shows a correlation between restrictive...
  • Your action needed: Muslim Brotherhood-linked thugs of ISNA warring against free speech

    02/13/2010 9:58:00 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 3 replies · 205+ views
    The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a premier stealth jihad group in the United States today. Federal prosecutors in 2008 rejected claims that ISNA was unfairly named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case. ISNA has admitted ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. The Muslim Brotherhood is waging, in its own words, “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over...

    Dallas Morning News’s Wayne Slater become one of the first pundits after the shootings at the Holocaust Museum on Wednesday to hint that there was a connection to mainstream conservative activists. On CNN Newsroom, about two hours after the story broke, Slater linked this incident and the murder of abortionist George Tiller with “anti-tax secessionists in Texas,” his label for Tea Party protesters. Anchor Rick Sanchez moderated a panel discussion on the Holocaust Museum shootings after the bottom of the 3 pm Eastern hour of the CNN program....Sanchez asked the Dallas Morning News political writer if criminals like this suspect...

    A.H. Belo Corp., the newspaper pure play spun off from Dallas-based Belo Corp., reported its first quarterly result was a loss of $8.7 million, or 43 cents a share, on revenues that tumbled 8.8% to $160.2 million. Advertising revenue, including print and Internet revenue, fell 12% in the quarter compared to a year ago. The chain was particularly hard hit at its major California property, where ad revenue for The Press-Enterprise in Riverside plummeted 26%. A.H. Belo said its newspaper margin -- measured by EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) -- fell by 5 percentage points to 9%....

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | April 17, 2008 | Rick Casey
    Some Republicans groaned at Gov. Rick Perry's announcement that he plans to seek another term in 2010, but Mayor Bill White's camp reacted with glee. White has made no effort to hide the fact that he is looking to run for governor after being term-limited out of the mayor's office next year. And Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, the biggest vote-getter in Texas history, has been more than hinting that she plans to "come home" to run for the same office. She outlined to Texas Monthly last November a plan to resign the Senate in 2009 to make the race, while...

    The circulation of the nation’s daily newspapers plunged during the latest reporting period in one of the sharpest declines in recent history, according to data released yesterday. The slide continues a decades-long trend and adds to the woes of a mature industry already struggling with layoffs and facing the potential sale of some of its flagships. Over all, average daily circulation dropped by 2.8 percent during the six-month period ended Sept. 30, compared with the period last year, according to an industry analysis of data released by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. Circulation for Sunday papers fell by 3.4 percent....

    Cafeteria is Closed ^ | October 12, 2006 | Gerald Augustinus
    Roman Sacristan tells me that Rod Dreher, a right-wing writer (Dallas Morning News, National Review) who used to be Catholic (convert) has jumped ship and joined an Orthodox church (personal take: for me it'd be absurd to join, say, the Russian Orthodox church without being Russian). On Beliefnet, Mr. Dreher explains himself in quite a pitiful manner, citing the sex scandals and dissent in the Church - only to offer up dissent himself. Back in 2001, when I first started writing about the child sex-abuse scandal in the Church, Father Tom Doyle, the heroic priest who ruined his own...

    Boo-hoo, the Washington Post is struggling. They're having trouble making ends meet, their circulation is in the dumps, and they're being squeezed by their competition. Not only is the Washington Post in trouble, but other newspapers are having deep difficulties as well. According to Media Life: Circulation has tumbled, falling by 137,695 for the weekday paper in the past decade, from 816,474 for the year ended Sept. 30, 1995 to 678,779 for the six-month period ended Oct. 2, 2005. That's a decline of 17 percent. That's according to numbers from the Audit Bureau of Circulations, the latter of which has...

    Dan Rather still doesn't get it. Rather spoke Monday at Fordham University School of Law in Manhatten and, with lips-a-quivering and eyes-a-watering, said that "there is a climate of fear running through newsrooms stronger than he has ever seen in his more than four-decade career." Spare us the phony tears, Dan. The fear in the newsroom is that you guys no longer have a stranglehold on what gets out to the American people. Remember those forged documents, Dan? I played an early role of proving that your unimpeachable source, Bill Burkett, was as loony as Cindy Sheehan after 3 fingers...

    The Dallas Morning News has once again resorted to publishing partisan opinion pieces under the guise of journalism with the story "'Mark of Rove':  Attack, leave no trail." I'll show not only that the article is based on conjecture, but that the writer, Wayne Slater, is co-author of a smear book and movie on Karl Rove and played a big role in pushing to prominence the man behind the phony Dan Rather memos, the loony former Texas Army National Guard Lt. Col. Bill Burkett.Take this paragraph for starters: It's not the first time that President Bush's most-trusted political adviser has been...

Belo Corp., owner of The News, said Thursday that it received a subpoena this week from the Dallas County district attorney's office. The subpoena seeks "documents related to the previously announced circulation overstatement" at the newspaper, Belo said in a statement announcing its first-quarter earnings.
  • Don't Fear the Blogger: Will somebody please help the Los Angeles Times' David Shaw get a grip?

    In yesterday's (March 27) Los Angeles Times, media reporter and critic David Shaw demonstrates Oscar Wilde's maxim that modern journalism is important—if only because it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. Giving every indication that he's read a lot of stories about bloggers but not that many actual blogs, Shaw disparages the form as the error-filled rants of amateurs in his piece, "Do Bloggers Deserve Basic Journalistic Protections?" It's a "solipsistic, self-aggrandizing journalist-wannabe genre," Shaw writes. Without naming a specific offender—except Matt Drudge, who he acknowledges really isn't a blogger—Shaw generalizes about bloggers for 1,300 gassy...
  • John O'Neill: He had last word in Vietnam debate (nominated for Texan of the Year)

    12/17/2004 9:38:15 PM PST · by freespirited · 33 replies · 899+ views
    The Houston telephone book lists more than 16,000 lawyers, some clearly more famous than others. Very few – perhaps only one – can credibly claim to have helped pull the hand brake on a presidential campaign. John O'Neill had his day on the national stage 33 years ago, but this year he emerged from the weeds of his comfortable anonymity because of a burning belief that John Kerry would make an awful commander in chief – and had to be stopped. In February, Mr. O'Neill rallied more than 200 fellow Vietnam vets to form Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, one...

    Samoa moves to deport fugitive priest 03:05 PM CDT on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 By REESE DUNKLIN / The Dallas Morning News The Samoan government, prompted by a Dallas Morning News investigation, is moving to deport a fugitive Catholic priest because he failed to disclose his conviction in a previous child molestation case when entering the country. The priest&#8217;s superiors in the Salesians of Don Bosco religious order also face an immigration inquiry because they, too, failed to make the same disclosures, said Auseuga Poloma Komiti, the senior adviser to Samoa&#8217;s prime minister and Cabinet. Samoan authorities will serve...
