    Now that we know that Presidential spokesman Jay Carney and his wife, ABC correspondent Claire Shipman decorate their house with Soviet art, it is time to take a look at exactly which messages the DC power couple choose to surround themselves and their children with. First, take a look at the photograph provided by the Washingtonian Magazine, and annotated by The Week: Now, let’s focus on the poster on the right...

    “Most voters still get their news from television,” a Rasmussen survey sadly reported before dropping the big bomb. “[They] consider the news reported by the media generally trustworthy.” Any serious student of media and propaganda rapidly comes to the conclusion that if one strives to be misinformed, they must watch the evening news. This is nothing new (and hence not news). Long ago a wag opined “Trying to be a first-rate reporter on the average American newspaper is like trying to play Bach's St. Matthew's Passion on a ukulele.” Little changed when news quit being produced with ink and started...

    A video at CNN with reporting by Sara Sidner from Gaza tells us "how a small child became a symbol of civilian casualties." Some of her narrative: A scene no parent should ever have to endure" "Four year-old Mahmoud Sadallah lies dead in the arms of a neighbor, a child of Gaza, another victim of an airstrike" "we saw no evidence here of military activity." There's even a scene where Ms. Sidner reports having to flee where she is currently reporting because "there are airstrikes" and "rockets" Since Hamas doesn't have an air force, we're supposed to assume that Israel's...
  • Children blame ‘Mom and Dad’ for electing Mitt, sing about Romney letting sick people ‘just die’

    A new video from the founders of a celebrated advertising agency features children “of the future” singing about the aftermath of a Mitt Romney presidency: A world where sick people are required to “just die,” the atmosphere is “frying,” gays can be “fixed” and “oil fills the sea.” The children, who stare blankly at the camera throughout the video, even take pains to explicitly mention that they blame “mom and dad” for all those horrors. The video — produced by the founders of the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners, which came up with the famous tagline “Got milk?” and...

    Newsweek has been catching a lot of flak today for its latest cover, in which Michele Bachmann is shown with an expression you might see on the face of a serial killer who has just spotted a new victim. Newsweek editor Tina Brown disagreed in a tweet today, contending that "Bachmann’s intensity is galvanizing voters in Iowa right now and Newsweek’s cover captures that." Really? It looks like it conveys, "This woman needs an exorcist."

    The American Thinker ^ | 4/22/2011 | Mark Musser
    Robert von Dassanowsky, the director of Film Studies at the University of Colorado, acutely noticed back in 2001 that James Cameron's epic movie Titanic is based on the German mountain films that Riefenstahl starred in. Although largely ignoring Riefenstahl's compromised relationship with the Nazis, von Dassanowsky makes a compelling case that Cameron's Titanic is a German mountain film set upon the sea ice of the North Atlantic. Von Dassanowsky even went so far to strongly suggest that the heroine in the Titanic, Rose, is actually based on Riefenstahl's personal character. He then intimates that Cameron may have indeed directed the...

    THE Taliban have found a way to beat American airpower. And they have managed this remarkable feat with American help. The consequences of this development are front and center in the current offensive in Marja, Afghanistan, where air support to American and Afghan forces has been all but grounded by concerns about civilian casualties. American and NATO military leaders — worried by Taliban propaganda claiming that air strikes have killed an inordinate number of civilians, and persuaded by “hearts and minds” enthusiasts that the key to winning the war is the Afghan population’s goodwill — have largely relinquished the strategic...

    An American newspaper has revealed a new scandal committed by Blackwater (actually it was Armor Group - foreign 3rd world personnel) security guards protecting the American Embassy in the Afghan capital city of Kabul. The newspaper published a report titled ‘This is what our children are doing abroad’. The report said, “They are drinking vodka and peeing on themselves like animals. They intentionally run outside naked and then pour vodka over each other’s asses.” The newspaper wondered, “What makes the Pentagon deal with these ‘special companies’ that cause harm and kill in a criminal way?” The newspaper noted, “Their ‘gay...

    Middle East news giant Al Jazeera has gained its first big foothold in the U.S. TV market. Now it has to overcome perceptions of bias. At the headquarters of the Al Jazeera news network in Doha, Qatar, staffers were getting ready for the big news event of the day: Barack Obama's speech in Cairo. "Watch, he's about to announce he's converted to Islam," joked one of them. More Arabs watched Obama's speech on Al Jazeera (the name means "the island") than on any other news network. The Arabic language channel boasts 53 million viewers--CNN has 70 million in the U.S.--while...

    Yeah, could be. None of them have guns, and as far as I know, not a single Basij or cop has been shot by a protester despite a full week of brutal beatings and killings. But aside from that, the theory’s airtight. "And now, the Iranian government is apparently claiming that rioters were responsible for Ms. Agha-Soltan’s death. The government-run Islamic Republic of Iran News Network (IRINN) reported that a “reliable source” confirmed after examining the bullet and the way Ms. Agha-Soltan was shot that rioters were responsible for her death, and that a number of people had been arrested...

Anchor Contessa Brewer introduced the piece by asserting, "The White House is warning that a bad economy, combined with the election of the nation's first black President, could draw new extremist right-wing members, especially war veterans, to a dangerous cause." An onscreen graphic behind her featured a red and blue Republican elephant and fretted, "New Right-Wing Threat?"

    How gullible is Rachel Maddow? Plenty, apparently. The MSNBC host has bought into North Korean propaganda on Gitmo. On last night’s show [MSNBC video here], Maddow told the story of two American reporters being held by the North Koreans. In response to inquiries on how they are being treated, the North Koreans reportedly said: “we are not Guantanamo.” That plunged Maddow into a bad bout of Bush-Cheney Derangement Syndrome. According to her, until we expunge the supposed stain of Gitmo and Bush admin policies on dealing with suspected terrorists, we will never have the moral authority to condemn the abuse...

Turns out the celebrated artist stole it from an Associated Press freelance photographer and never bothered to acknowledge where he got it in the first place. I guess the word “ethics” didn’t fit as easily on that iconic Fairey poster, eh? At least one Old Media photographer was curious about the source photo that the poster was based on.

    The U.S. military said on Saturday it had hampered al Qaeda's ability to recruit new members in Iraq by capturing or killing many of the people who make slick videos used to attract disaffected young Muslims. U.S. military spokesman Rear Admiral Greg Smith said that in the past year, 39 al Qaeda members in Iraq responsible for producing and disseminating videos and other material to thousands of Internet Web sites had been captured or killed. "The power of this information is obvious. These guys are using material that is used on Web sites to recruit and raise money," Smith told...

    Al Jazeera Aims to Influence American Politics by Humberto Fontova 03/18/2008 Al Jazeera, eager for greater international coverage and cachet, recently launched an International Division. Aiming to influence the US audience, they recruited heavily from CNN and The BBC. CNN's former Havana Bureau chief Lucia Newman is noteworthy among these job-jumpers. "In Cuba we will be given total freedom to do what we want and to work without any censorship," (italics mine) she stressed upon accepting the CNN assignment in 1997. Among her "scoops" from Havana: "No dubious campaign spending here. No mud slinging -- a system President (italics mine)...

    Peshawar: Producing propaganda videos for Al Sahab is a three-step process, says Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence Group, a US terrorism research centre. The first is to shoot the video. The second step - the most time-consuming - is to edit and produce the material, a process which requires skilled technicians but can be done in a simple mud hut anywhere in Afghanistan or the rugged border area of Pakistan. Once the material is ready, step three is transmitting through an internet cafe. "The Al Sahab man doesn't have to lug his computer on his back into the cafe,"...

    The folks at General Electric must be so proud of their cable news network MSNBC. Not only does one of its top stars regularly debase the President of the United States, but also his most recent tirade actually garnered the attention of an Iranian television network. Coincidentally, the good folks at Press TV are just as enamored with Keith Olbermann as his fans at Daily Kos [cannot find Kos link for this. I used this link to try to rectify newsbuster's duplication}) (h/t JWF: In a scathing commentary against President George W. Bush, MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann declared Bush guilty...

    WASHINGTON - A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks. The study concluded that the statements "were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses." The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence in Journalism. White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said he could...

    The Taliban has The Associated Press and Reuters on speed dial. Elias Wahdat, a stringer for Reuters and BBC news services in Khost province, said that every time the Taliban launch an attack or American troops call in an air strike, he gets a text message. The Taliban will give its version of what happened, often claiming that American bombs killed civilians. It may take officials with the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan hours to put together a news release for the press. In the meantime, the Taliban version is already circulating. Lt. Col. David A. Accetta, the 82nd Airborne Division...
