    From Breitbart article: The granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, of the multi-national media empire Hearst Corporation, and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) are launching a campaign that demands Cosmopolitan Magazine be displayed behind blinders or in an opaque wrapper and not sold to minors. Victoria Hearst, who is also the founder and president of Praise Him Ministries in Montrose, Colorado, and Dawn Hawkins, executive director of NCOSE, will be joined by child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist and author Dr. Miriam Grossman on Wednesday, April 22 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. to launch their new campaign...

    "Death to the Fascist Insect" Proclaimed the Revolutionary Cohorts of the Symbionese Liberation Army as they Bravely Murdered the Humble Christian Woman, Myrna Lee Opsahl This Day Forty Years Ago.  A photographic exhibition once featured the resolute face of a late 1930s murder suspect as he was marched into a paddy wagon. I ve often searched for that image as an example of dedicated unrepentance. No more. We have the face of Emily Harris and her colleagues in domestic terrorism, waiting in court. We can see arrogant unrepentance, and yet hidden fear in the faces of Myrna's murderers.  Dr. Trygve Opsahl received news of...

  • 39 Years Ago Today, Patty Hearst Was Convicted Of Armed Robbery

    How does one celebrate the 39th anniversary of the day one was convicted of armed robbery and use of a firearm to commit a felony? Long walk with your prize-winning dog? A cake? A shot and a beer? I'm sure that whatever Patty Hearst does today, it'll be done in style, for it's her conviction about which I'm talking. Yup, it was this day in 1976 when a jury of her peers (as much as anyone can be the peer of a wealthy socialite) came back from 12 hours of deliberation and delivered that verdict. You know her story, of...

    Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974.

    Helen Thomas, whose career covering the White House dated back to the Kennedy administration, died on Saturday at the age of 92, the Gridiron Club announced in an email to members on Saturday. Thomas was the the first woman to join the White House Correspondents' Association, and the first woman to serve as its president. She was also the first female member of the Gridiron Club, Washington's historic press group. Present at the press briefings of ten consecutive presidential administrations, Thomas's career in journalism ended in 2010 after controversial remarks she made about Israeli Jews were caught on camera. "Former...

    Hearst TV local blackouts On July 9, 2012 Hearst Television chose to black out their signals from Time Warner Cable customers rather than continue negotiations, and despite their CEO saying just two weeks earlier that broadcaster blackouts are unfair to consumers. Time Warner Cable has reached hundreds of agreements with other broadcasters without broadcaster blackouts, but Hearst’s demand for a nearly 300% increase is way out of line. That kind of outrageous increase is unfair to our customers and unsustainable for our business. We believe broadcaster blackouts are wrong. Despite Hearst’s blackout, we stand ready to continue negotiations and are...
  • George R. Hearst Jr., Media Titan's Grandson, Dies

    Hearst Corp. board chairman George Randolph Hearst Jr., the oldest grandson of the media titan William Randolph Hearst, died Monday, the company said. Hearst was 84. The company said in a statement that Hearst died at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, Calif., due to complications from a stroke. Hearst was the chairman of a privately held media conglomerate that traces its roots back more than 125 years, when his grandfather took over the San Francisco Examiner. Hearst was a director of the company for more than 50 years, the company said. He succeeded his uncle, Randolph A. Hearst,...
  • The Left, Not the Right, Owns Political Violence

    American Thinker ^ | January 10, 2011 | Michael Filozof
    It took less than 24 hours for the political Left to seize upon the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people on Saturday to blame the political Right for the shooting. Perhaps the most egregious example came from Paul Krugman of the New York Times, who wrote "We don't have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was." (The newspaper that published plagiarized and fabricated accounts of the "D.C. sniper" by affirmative-action hire Jayson Blair in 2003 is still publishing unsubstantiated suppositions without "proof," eh?) "[Giffords'] father says that ‘the...

    We are told by careful pollsters that half of the American people believe that American troops should be brought home from Iraq immediately. This news discourages supporters of our efforts there. Not me, though: I am relieved. Given press coverage of our efforts in Iraq, I am surprised that 90 percent of the public do not want us out right now. Between January 1 and September 30, 2005, nearly 1,400 stories appeared on the ABC, CBS, and NBC evening news. More than half focused on the costs and problems of the war, four times as many as those that discussed...

    As of today this morning, White House news reporter Helen Thomas, whose remarks in recent days telling “Jews to leave Palestine and go back to Germany and Poland”, has made it offical she is retiring from the Hearst Coporation as of today. She will be 90 in August. Ms. Thomas’s remarks are a reminder of the intolerence often expressed by liberals. Ms. Thomas’s retirement cannot come soon enough.

    Your damn right Helen Thomas should be fired for making this kind of remark: [VIDEOS AT SITE] Telling the Jews to get the hell out of palestine? Any other reporter would have been let go 5 minutes after the news hit but not this worthless lady. Ari Fleischer said she should be fired: But even as she was trying to walk back the remarks, calls for her firing mounted. Among the more vocal was former Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, who claimed to have a close relationship with Thomas when he was manning the daily briefings. “She should lose her...

    Three 16th century oil paintings that have been hanging in William Randolph Hearst's famous castle at San Simeon belonged to a Jewish couple who were forced to give them up during the Nazi reign in Germany, authorities said Tuesday. Two of the three paintings, visible to guests and millions of tourists at Hearst Castle since 1935, will be returned Friday to the heirs of the rightful owners, both of whom died during the war, one in the death camp at Auschwitz.

    Hearst's Seattle Post-Intelligencer Announces End to Print Edition By SHIRA OVIDE The Seattle Post-Intelligencer announced it will stop publishing its print edition on Tuesday and convert to an online-only news operation. The move had been anticipated since early January, when Hearst Corp., owner of the Seattle P-I and 15 other newspapers, announced it would shift the Seattle paper to a Web-news outlet or shutter the operation entirely, if a buyer wasn't found in 60 days. Hearst said it couldn't continue to absorb the P-I's losses, which the company says reached $14 million last year.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco Chronicle joined the lengthening list of imperiled newspapers Tuesday as its owner set out to purge the payroll and slash other expenses in a last-ditch effort to reverse years of heavy losses. If it can't reduce expenses dramatically within the next few weeks, the Hearst Corp. said it will close or sell the Chronicle, northern California's largest newspaper with a paid weekday circulation of 339,430. Hearst didn't specify a savings target nor a deadline for wringing out the expenses. A Hearst spokesman didn't immediately respond to messages Tuesday. But management made it clear...

    Hearst Corp. said it may close its San Francisco Chronicle newspaper unless it can quickly slash costs at the money-losing daily. Hearst said it will seek "critical cost-saving measures," including a steep reduction in the Chronicle work force. If it can't reach its cost-saving target "within weeks," it will seek a buyer for the newspaper, Hearst said. And if it can't find a buyer -- at a time when few investors are shelling out money for big newspapers -- it will close the paper. The possible closure of the Chronicle, the 12th-largest daily in the country and Northern California's largest...
