    Date posted online: Tuesday, June 29, 2004New Iraqi prime minister seen as puppet, outsider BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Iyad Allawi, the prime minister who took power in Iraq on Monday, is dismissed by militant Shiites and Sunnis as a puppet of the Americans. To many Iraqis, he is an out-of-touch "outsider" who has no popular base. One thing is certain though: the CIA-linked opposition leader-turned-politician seems determined to do everything he can to restore security, including use of some tactics that hark back to Saddam Hussein's days. The challenge facing Allawi, 58, is twofold: to win the acceptance and...

Peter King, R-NY, delivered a stark message on Tuesday from an unnamed U.S. military officer now stationed in Baghdad who believes negative press coverage of the U.S. war effort has cost American soldiers their lives. While flying back to the U.S. aboard a military transport, King told nationally syndicated radio host Sean Hannity via satellite phone, "I promised an American colonel yesterday, an Army colonel, that [I'd relay his message]: 'There's blood on the hands of the American media.'"...

    Damn, I hate it when I've been had and I've been had big time. In 1982, while I was working for Congressman Manuel Lujan of New Mexico, a man came up to a me during a gathering in Albuquerque and introduced himself as Terrance J. Wilkinson. He said he was a security consultant and gave me a business card with his name and just a Los Angeles phone number. A few weeks later, he called my Washington office and asked to meet for lunch. He seemed to know a lot about the nuclear labs in New Mexico and said he...

Here is what he actually wrote: "Let me be clear that I have nothing against homosexuals, or any other group, promoting their agenda through normal democratic means."

Why does he keep doing this? A. Quagmireology is not an exact science. Perhaps he was using outdated tea leaves or defunct chicken bones. Maybe he got the brutal Afghan winter confused with the brutal Iraqi summer.

    Propaganda Pete03/31/2003 Poetic justice played out today when foreign correspondent Peter Arnett, recently of NBC and National Geographic, managed to hang himself with his own noose - metaphorically speaking. Working from Baghdad, on Sunday, 03/30/03, he gave an interview to Iraqi TV that amounted to a heaping helping of propaganda. Here are some snippets. Judge for yourself: "The first war plan has failed because of Iraqi resistance. Now they are trying to write another war plan. Clearly, the American war planners misjudged the determination of the Iraqi forces." The above statement is especially egregious because it could only serve to...

They reviewed 234 stories from January 1 through March 7. Their findings offer disturbing evidence of an anti-American undercurrent that pervades their news broadcasts. As the MRC states in their report, ABC News "failed its promise to serve the American people as an independent and objective observer, offering straight facts and letting the people decide. Instead, ABC employed a dangerous double standard - harshly criticizing the Bush administration and its policies, but failing to...

These women, now living in the United States, told horrifying tales of Saddam Hussein's cruelty. Walters finished the interview with agreement by all the women that Iraqi citizens will be "rejoicing when the Americans arrive." Following the taped interview,...

It was a symbol of our unified grief and our unified resolve. It symbolized our love of freedom - a love that binds together a diverse nation. How odd, then, that Bill Moyers feels the need now to 'take' the flag 'back'. Here are his words as he ended his February 28 show, Now, on PBS: "I decided to put on my flag pin tonight. First time.

    Then and Now: A Study in Hypocrisy at ABC News01/20/2003 The left wing propagandists at ABC News are promoting a "public service" advertisement that implies that President Bush is taking an extremely dangerous path in his approach to disarming Saddam Hussein.

Peter Jennings: "An anti-war group called 'MoveOn.org' that's organized primarily over the Internet, today started airing a television commercial opposing war against Saddam Hussein. The ad remakes one of the most notorious political attack ads ever, and it is supposedly airing in 12 cities, though...

Living in the Pacific Time zone, it was incredible to watch the Republican onslaught roll westward. In the aftermath, political junkies have spent a lot of time examining the message voters sent to Washington. As a media bias activist, I began to ponder if there was a message hidden within the vote for the mainstream media. It is well known that a majority of reporters and TV anchors are of the Democratic persuasion. The fact that...

The idea that Clinton's former spinmeister could morph from liberal propagandist to balanced journalist seemed both laughable and sinister. Last weekend, Stephanopoulos put on such a vivid display of his true colors as to leave no doubt even to the "give-the-lad-a-chance" protagonists. The September 29 edition of This Week opened with Stephanopoulos' pre-taped interview with Congressmen Bonior (D-MI) and McDermott (D-WA) in Baghdad. After they had ranted about...

The views of pundits who are excessively partisan cannot be taken seriously, because their ulterior motives or uncontrolled biases are certain to frequently contaminate their judgements.

Certainly, the question of timing is legitimate, but such a huge reorganization of government raises multiple important issues. Prior to the speech, during the CBS Evening News, Rather charged: "President Bush moved to take the spotlight away from the hearing and capture the headlines by suddenly asking for national television time tonight." Later, as he began his networks coverage of the 8pm speech, he again focused on possible...
