  • Taboo Topics in Journalism Today - (says liberal media bias gave Kerry 5 to 20 million votes!)

    The old media, with their documented and demonstrable liberal bias, have lost much of their clout. But through the networks, the major papers, and the White House press corps, they continue to set the national agenda. And that means there are some things you just don't write about if you want to remain "in" with the liberal media. Newsweek senior writer Charles Gasparino, appearing on Tina Brown's now-defunct CNBC show, made the following admission. "We sow the seeds of our own demise. Journalists have been advocates of the liberal attitude for way too long, and now we're paying the price....

    Congress is once again debating the budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which partially funds the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR). Public broadcasting doesn’t require fine-tuning. Like most other remnants of the Great Society, it needs to be killed. Much of the discussion centers on the question of public broadcasting’s bias. That question was settled long ago. PBS’ and NPR’s programming has had an obvious leftist tilt since their inception. In 1969, PBS carried a documentary on the ongoing struggle in Vietnam. The program was produced in - surprise, surprise - Communist North Vietnam. A...

    Toronto-- Tomorrow is D-Day for the Republic of China gaining a toehold in the American business world. Thursday is the day when the battle between Chevron corp. and CNOOC over Unocal Corp. is set to come to a head with the U.S. company’s board due to decide whether to back the Chinese group’s US$18.5-billion bid and withdraw support for Chevron’s US$16.6-billion cash-and-share offer, says the Financial Times. "The Unocal board’s decision is crucial to the outcome of CNOOC’s attempt to challenge Chevron–a move that has sparked a barrage of opposition from U.S. politicians." CNOOC’s offer will be the subject of...

The classes will be part of Poynter's NewsU and may include information to help bloggers understand liability issues.

    Over half of voters think Congress (search) is out of touch with the country, and fewer than one-in-five believe Congress has passed legislation this year that would improve the quality of life for Americans. Clear majorities think the Patriot Act (search) is good for the country and support extending the legislation, which is set to expire at the end of the year. In addition, more than twice as many voters oppose closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay as support closure. These are just some of the findings from the latest FOX News nationwide poll of voters. The poll shows...

    Howard Dean is doing such a bang-up job as Chairman of the Democratic Party that many are convinced he is an operative of Karl Rove. Not since the days of the Carter Administration has any single Democrat made Republicans look so impressive. But when he isn’t claiming that George W. Bush had beforehand knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, or attacking members of the military as brutal thugs, or stating that some 61 million moronic Bush voters “haven’t worked an honest day in their life,” Dean is trying to convince America that he and his liberal elitist friends represent Mainstream America....

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Arguably Iraq's most popular Shiite group, followers of radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr have packed away their guns and now speak of "political resistance" rather than martyrdom in battle. Once dismissed as an upstart, the portly al-Sadr has been transformed into a respectable political figure, commanding the loyalty of key lawmakers and several Cabinet ministers. "We are growing stronger and our appeal is becoming wider," Ibrahim al-Jaberi, a senior official at al-Sadr's office in Sadr City, said Saturday. Sadr City is a sprawling Baghdad neighborhood that is home to some 2.5 million Shiites and the largest bastion of...

    Did I say niche? Sorry, I meant ditch. On almost any issue, on almost any measure, study after study shows major differences in political and social leanings between mainstream journalists and the public. Similarly, repeated surveys demonstrate a far higher skepticism among the public of journalistic product than journalists have of themselves. Readership of newspapers and viewership of the three formerly leading networks continues to drop by major percentages, up to half or more from the 1960s. The most common response from leading news media figures is that the public is ignorant or misguided, and just doesn't understand the reality...

Judges whose views Democrats have regarded as merely conservative are now seen as right-wing extremists — or, to use the phrase that keeps coming up in the current Senate debate, "out of the mainstream." But what does the phrase mean? From Democrats' public statements, it seems to mean the following: Judges who would uphold a state's ban on gay marriage are out of the mainstream; judges who would rule that parents should be notified before their underage daughter has an abortion are out of...

    In his most informative speech to date, President Bush took it to a new level in the first press conference of his second term. Having been one who has complained about Bush's lack of specificity on Social Security reform I was really impressed with everything about his presentation. He is definitely improving his facial expressions, his gesticulation to go along with setting up the Democrats with another nail in their coffin. He literally did a tour de force on privatization. He definitely was opening the second act of his play. Now if he can only stop walking without flapping his...

It is a generation for whom 900 numbers and scrambled scraps of flesh on the Spice channel have given way, in a few short years, to bulk e-mail ads for the Paris Hilton sex tapes and porn subplots on "The O.C."

There’s the death-is-beautiful, right-to-die activist Michael Schiavo attorney George Felos.

The formula was simple: provide a carefully selected mix of data, hammer away on themes making the conservatives look mean, extreme, stupid, corrupt or narrow-minded; take polls with questions designed to elicit majorities favoring the liberal solution, and then wield the polls as irrefutable evidence of the need...

    It happened again. Last week, during an interview in Beijing, Washington Post Managing Editor Philip Bennett voiced his contention that the United States should not be the “leader of the world.” Along with this abhorrent declaration, Bennett launched into various other statements, mostly displaying a distinctly anti-American sentiment. Such words were particularly vile, in light of the fact that he was offering them to a regime that aspires to eventual supremacy on the world scene, and is relentlessly building towards that goal. Though it is by no means certain that Bennett’s anti-American diatribe will cost him his position as chief...

OPINION - Subscribers to the Los Angeles Times, and their parent company the Chicago Tribune, should reconsider their subscriptions. The Tribune Company's willingness to actively promote the party line of Kim Jong Il on its front pages speaks loudly to the lack of trust that can be placed in their credibility as news-reporting outlets. Such a betrayal should be cause for a horrific blog-swarm and truly objective broadcast outlets should be equally attentive. The question of whether...

    <p>Fox News Network has become a favorite target of leftists these days, who, in all their impotent rage, like to ascribe various sinister motives to what they see as a staunchly conservative news channel. An entire documentary, Outfoxed, has been devoted to the idea that Fox News is part of a right-wing cabal to control the country. The left is particularly fond of mocking Fox’s claim to be "fair and balanced." Of course, when you’re dealing with a crowd that considers the New York Times to be conservative, your frame of reference is going to be just a tad bit skewed. But for those who once had hopes that Fox News would actually fulfill such paranoid fantasies, the channel has been a major disappointment. Fox is certainly a cut above the competition, but as far as providing a real alternative to the liberal agenda of the mainstream media (MSM), many viewers are still waiting.</p>

I'm talking about the "mainstream media," which is being destroyed by the opposition (or worse, the casual disdain) of George Bush's Republican Party; by competition from other news outlets (led by the internet and Fox's canny Roger Ailes); and by its own fraying journalistic standards. At the height of its power, the AMMP (the American Mainstream Media Party) helped validate the civil rights movement, end a war and oust a power-mad president. But all that is ancient history.

    Look Inside Kerry's Mind and You Find a "False Personality" Written by Joan Swirsky Wednesday, October 20, 2004 There's a term to explain why the clearly haughty and self-important John Kerry repeatedly calls George Bush "arrogant." In psychology, it’s called projection: attributing to others what, in fact, perfectly describes the person hurling the insult. Similarly, there’s a term to explain why Kerry, a lifelong pacifist after his four-month foray in Vietnam, is now trying to convince the public that he would fight the war against terrorism more effectively than President Bush. It’s called self-delusion. Another term explains why Kerry has...

    Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Equal Rules for the Press? Posted October 11, 2004 By Paul M. Rodriguez Catching up on the weekend news post the second presidential debate was a bit disturbing - and just reaffirms what so many readers of Insight have complained about concerning bias in the press. Specifically: Where are the stories analyzing the campaign issues raised by John F. Kerry compared to his political stump rhetoric compared to the senator's 20 years worth of votes, speeches and legislative history? Sure, sure - I know, that would mean that news organizations actually are looking for fair...

    How Biased is CBS and the Mainstream Press? Written by JB Williams ©2004-09-23 CBS has committed five years of effort and resources by senior producer (Mary Mapes) and her staff, to digging through 30 year old service records of George W. Bush in search of any evidence that would help them remove him from the oval office. When CBS failed to unearth any damning evidence concerning Bush’s Guard service after five years of in depth research, they became party to disseminating forged evidence needed to pursue their agenda. CBS claims that it was a BIG story worthy of pursuit, having...

    Why the Mainstream Media Has it Wrong On Negative CampaigningAnd -- how reporters and investigative journalists create the problemIt's always important to have information that exposes negative traits and poor voting records of  politicians. When a politician has a sever negative or accumulated negatives it may expose him or her as unqualified for the office they seek. It's especially important to expose politicians that have used deception or fraud.When people that work in the mainstream media report, comment on or complain about negative campaigning they acknowledge implicitly that they are without integrity and honesty in their work.. When reporters and investigative journalists...

    The Soros-Kerry Connection Written by Doc Farmer Tuesday, August 24, 2004 Politics is an ugly business. Politics also makes for rather bizarre bedfellows. In terms of vitriol, spite, chutzpah, and sheer hit-for-way-too-long-with-an-ugly-stick repulsiveness, 2004 has plumbed new depths. It started in 2003, before the lib/dem/soc/commie candidate had even been selected from the gang of nine, with well-financed hatred focused on one man. Dubya. For a year, we’ve heard the same refrain. ABB – Anybody But Bush. Anybody could include Saddam, Hitler, bin Laden, Mao, Stalin, etc., but for the lib/dem/soc/commies, Hey, that’d be just fine. Besides, they’re all closer to...

    Have you noticed the typical mainstream media and their handling of the Swift Boat affair? Chris Matthews has Max Cleland on his show. Now what the heck does Max know about the SwiftVets? NOTHING! Then he has Willie Brown and Michelle Maulkin on together. Matthews slimes Maulkin and doesn't let her talk at all, but a stop watch to it if you don't believe me. He let's Willie run his mouth uninterrupted. Willie doesn't know anything about the SwiftVets or Kerry's lies, neither does Michell at this point in time, however, this woman is a tremendous researcher and she will...

    I was out working with the plants in the rain. Just wondering how the always fair and unbiased mainstream media treated Teraaaaaaaaayza's comments ("SHOVE IT"- speaking of civility in politics). Would Laura have ever said something like that? How would she be treated if she had? For that matter, what if SandyPants Berger had been Condi? Is the liberal/socialist/Democrat/commie mainstream media SICK enough? Is there any way to get some truth to the average uninspired, uninformed, disinterested voter?

In a submission to the Lambeth Commission, the Church of England Evangelical Council has challenged the authority of the Bishop of St Albans, the Rt Rev Christopher Herbert, to manage his diocese....
