  • Zakaria: Journalists Are ‘Better Educated’, ‘More Comfortable With Diversity’ Than Ordinary People

    Breitbart ^ | June 27, 2016 | by BREITBART LONDON
    From Mediaite: CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too “elite” was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly. Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be “better-educated,’ “comfortable with diversity,” more liberal, and “probably less sensitive to the concerns” of average Britons who supported the Brexit. However, he said, the pro-Brexit campaign was “entirely using emotion, conjuring horror stories” about immigrants and the like, aided on by the British tabloids––which Zakaria referred to as “basically their Fox News.” Zakaria argued that “the media does have a bias...

The vehicle was driven by an illegal immigrant who has been in Minnesota for ten years without ever having a driver’s license. He was known to local authorities, having been convicted of drunk driving in 2001 and driving without a license just a few months ago. But the immigration laws are...

    The Obama administration and its media handmaidens are doing their best to move the Gulf oil spill in the directions of Orwell's memory hole as rapidly as possible. All of a sudden, they seem pretty optimistic over at BP. Sounds like they may finally be getting a handle on the Gulf oil spill. Engineers are installing a new containment cap which is expected be a big improvement over the current cap. That first device, lowered into place on June 3, has managed to capture only about one-third of the estimated 60,000-80,000 barrels of crude gushing from the bottom of the...

The story of Edwards's affair with a former campaign aide became so widely known -- what a Slate blogger called "undernews" -- that by last week there seemed little point in the mainstream media gatekeepers' keeping it isolated outside their moat. And yet, even as some national news organizations tried halfheartedly to confirm the tawdry tale, they ignored it in public -- wary of the National...

So sure he wrote a paean to how great the media is... and he missed the target by a wide margin on every point he made. Unfortunately, he took a good point and made a mockery of the truth of the matter with his wrongheaded reasoning. In "You'll miss us when we're gone" Kay asserts that the media exists for "a genuine, altruistic desire for an educated citizenry" and hopes that predictions of its "imminent extinction" are wrong.

    19,000 insurgents killed in Iraq since '03 By Jim Michaels - September 2007 ? More than 19,000 militants have been killed in fighting with coalition forces since the insurgency began more than four years ago, according to military statistics released for the first time. The statistics show that 4,882 militants were killed in clashes with coalition forces this year, a 25% increase over all of last year. The increase in enemy deaths this year reflects more aggressive tactics adopted by American forces and an additional 30,000 U.S. troops ordered by the White House this year. U.S. and Iraqi forces launched...

Jurors found Phillip Grant guilty of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon. Grant, who is black, had admitted killing Concetta Russo-Carriero, 56, last June in a mall parking garage. "As long as she had blond hair and blue eyes, she had to die," Grant said on a videotaped statement to police, which was shown at the trial. "I have no remorse whatsoever because she was white."

    The National Broadcasting Company is continuing its anti-Catholic ways. And not even being subtle about it. Blasphemy is "the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God." Sacrilege is "gross irreverence toward a hallowed person, place, or thing." On February 22, NBC broadcast an egregiously insulting episode of the sitcom "Committed,” using consecrated Communion wafers as comic fodder. In the name of humor, two of the show's characters flushed a Communion wafer down a toilet! For "good" measure, the show portrayed a priest as a vulgar ignoramus.

    Forgive me if I’m stereotyping but I’ve found some liberals to be some of the most dishonest of people. Armed with their inherent ''superiority complex,'' they feel quite confident they’ll not be exposed as the liars they are because everyone else is just too stupid. So you can imagine the surprise I felt when I read comments from liberals who genuinely hate Former-President Ronald Reagan. Now it can be debated whether Mr. Reagan would have been comfortable with the nonstop lionizing that he received, and whether the media’s comments of tribute were entirely genuine. There are people out there with...

    An Open Letter to American Media: Enough Is Enough Posted by Cinnamon StillwellTuesday, May 25, 2004     The following ''Open Letter to American Media'' was written by Dr. Ted Miller, a professor of military studies at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado.  In it, he expresses the frustration many of us feel about our mainstream media's seeming bias against their own country.      I have long perceived a bias in the mainstream media and have for years been frustrated with its implications for our society and nation.  The political slant inherent in modern journalism is no longer unexpected and is even tolerable when social...

    "Why is Fox News banned from Canada, yet CNN isn't?" Peter Worthington of the Toronto Sun poses this question in his latest article. He isn't sure if it's because Canada is more accepting of the liberal-leaning CNN, or if it's just because CNN was there first and is sort of 'grandfathered in,' so to speak. Either way, Fox News has blown away the competition here in the U.S., and Worthington says he feels "withdrawal pangs" after returning to a Fox-free Canada. "I find Fox News an invaluable balance to CNN programming," he says. When he called up his cable company...

    Was it just me, or has Hardball's Chris Matthews just buried the lead story of today, the employment figures which showed a gain of 308,000 jobs in March and a revision upwards of 72,000 jobs for January/February. Not a single mention of this fact in all his segments, but he did manage to cover higher gas prices at the pump. This is a pattern of Mr. Matthews, I just had to watch tonight because I bet someone Matthews would not mention this fact today in anyway. Looks like I won the bet... dvwjr

His suit claims he was fired after 21 years when the Lancasters began to question his faith in God and loyalty to the company. Mr Backus also claims he was summoned to corporate headquarters in Gadsden after he and his wife began experiencing marital problems. He...

    Readers are invited to send in the most strained and mealy-mouthed statements from the devastated press and anti-war politicians and activists following the capture of Saddam. First up: Saddam's paid-up British anti-war activist, George Galloway: "This will not stop the Iraqi resistance. if anything, it may set the resistance free, if you like, from the cloud of Saddam Hussein, and transform it into a purely national resistance movement without the charge that it's being controlled from behind by the deposed president." Galloway must be worried sick about what Saddam might tell the coalition. So must Chirac. - 4:23:59 PM

    The Miami Herald ^ | 03 December 2003 | Alvin W. Forbing
    Double standard? Pat Buchanan, in his Nov. 29 Other Views column, It's time to revolt against judges, on gay marriage, states: • ''It is time for elected representatives to take back powers that were never constitutionally granted to any court.'' • ''The Massachusetts court has just usurped the power of the elected branches, and they should slap the court down.'' • ''Time to go to the root of America's social crisis: the power usurped by judges and imposed against the will of the people and their chosen representatives.'' Why didn't Buchanan apply those same ideas after the 2000 presidential election?

    Iraqis challenge US account of battle Michael Howard in Baghdad and Julian Borger in WashingtonTuesday December 2, 2003The Guardian Iraqi officials in Samarra yesterday challenged US military accounts of a bloody battle on Sunday, accusing American soldiers of spraying fire at random on the city streets, killing several civilians. US army spokesmen claimed that up to 54 Iraqi guerrillas had been killed when they tried to ambush two armoured convoys bringing new banknotes to two Samarra banks, triggering the biggest pitched battle in Iraq since May 1, when President George Bush declared "major combat operations" over. There were no reported...
