  • Media squander public trust by playing politics

    Even before we knew who won the election, we knew who lost it: the media. And the race wasn't close. News organizations of every stripe and type took a beating in the campaign of 2004. Mostly, they earned it, with the result being the clock has been turned back on decades of progress in standards and fairness. Trust in the media is at an all-time low. Screwups were a big part of the story, the lowlight being CBS News' September "scoop" on favored treatment given to George W. Bush 30 years ago in the National Guard. Shockingly, CBS still has...
  • NBC edits Kerry's words

    Did you see the edit I believe NBC did on the Kerry interview? It was with Tom Brokaw and everything I read about the interview said that when questioned about the IQ comparison recently made public, Kerry said " How would they know? I have not released my record." I thought everything concerning Kerry's record was out as stated numerous times by Kerry . But when watching the interview, that portion was edited out. You could tell it was cut out mid senctence. If true, that stinks. What happened to honest journalism. I think this is important. It was so...

    What a treat on "Fox & Friends" this morning: William Kristol hammered the pro-Democrat New York Times and pro-Democrat CBS for "colluding" and "conspiring" with Sen. John Kerry to topple President Bush. Even Kerry's own handlers now admit they have no proof to back up the issue the Democrats concocted with their media allies. Kristol notes in his new column for Weekly Standard: "Pressed on Tuesday afternoon about the accuracy of the allegations on Fox's Big Story with John Gibson, Richard Holbrooke, a senior adviser to the Kerry campaign, said: 'You don't know the truth and I don't know the...

    Why are the New York Times, CBS and John Kerry hyping a fraudulent story on the missing explosives? Why did CBS state the story would not hold until 48 hours before the election? My opinion is they knew John Kerry’s presidential run was over when the following documents broke on October 26, 2004 if press and public where not all distracted elsewhere. Documentary evidence was reveled on October 26, 2004 establishing that John Kerry worked with the Vietnamese communists while Vietnam War was still ongoing. The documents clearly state: “The spontaneous antiwar movements in the US have received assistance and...

    A new study of campaign reporting concludes that Senator John F. Kerry, buoyed by his performances in the presidential debates, was covered by the media far more favorably than President Bush in recent weeks. The survey released yesterday by the Washington-based Project for Excellence in Journalism found that 59 percent of the stories that were primarily about Bush from Oct. 1-14 were negative in tone, compared to only 25 percent of the stories about Kerry. And while 34 percent of the Kerry coverage was favorable, a mere 14 percent of the president's coverage put him in a positive light. The...

    A study of the major media by the Project for Excellence in Journalism finds that news stories are favoring John Kerry by a ratio of almost 2 to 1. As the president campaign has turned to the final stretch, news reports have become increasingly biased.

    The GOP's Shameful Vote Strategy With Election Day almost upon us, it's not clear whether President Bush is running a campaign or plotting a coup d'etat. By all accounts, Republicans are spending these last precious days devoting nearly as much energy to suppressing the Democratic vote as they are to mobilizing their own. Time was when Republicans were at least embarrassed by their efforts to keep African Americans from the polls. Republican consultant Ed Rollins was all but drummed out of the profession after his efforts to pay black ministers to keep their congregants from voting in a 1993 New...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Despite being highly criticized last month for running a story using forged memos regarding President George W. Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard, CBS's "60 Minutes," along with the New York Times, is again at the center of an election year scandal regarding missing explosives in Iraq. At the heart of the controversy are reports that both CBS and the New York Times were working on news stories which would focus on the missing explosives in the context that the explosives disappeared due to inadequate security provided by coalition forces following the fall of...

    Opinion Editorials ^ | October 27, 2004 | George C. Landrith
    On Monday, The New York Times reported that 380 tons of conventional explosives were missing from an Iraqi weapons facility. The Times blamed President George W. Bush for not securing the dangerous explosives immediately after U.S. forces toppled Saddam Hussein’s regime. It was an explosive story timed for maximum political effect. Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry welcomed the news and made it the centerpiece of his campaign speeches, citing the missing explosives as an example of Bush’s failure of leadership. There is only one problem – the story was false. The truth is the explosives were removed before American troops...

    Looking at the "RealClear Politics" plot of the presidential polls, I see two long term trendlines, punctuated by a hell of a lot of what I would refer to as "experimental error": I don't believe that public opinion has been changing as much as these polls seem to suggest. The variation we see up through July looks like what engineers call "sample aliasing" or "jitter". Note that it falls well within the oft-claimed ±4 points of error. This is typical for data taken in noisy sampling environments; I've seen this kind of thing many times. August and September are different....

  • Kerry Looks the Part; Should He Get It? (FOURNIER ap BIAS ALERT)

    PHOENIX - Democratic Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) passed a major test in the three debates with President Bush (news - web sites), standing toe-to-toe with the incumbent and looking at least as presidential. Now the hard part: persuading voters to let him take Bush's place in the Oval Office. Some Republicans openly fretted about the campaign Thursday while the Democrats rushed to polish Kerry's presidential credentials. He planned a series of speeches designed to cast himself as the champion of the middle class and Bush as the toady of the elite. "We're calling this next week an...

    Bob Schieffer did not even try to hide his bias for John Kerry, on CNN's Larry King Live, tonight, Monday, 10-04-04. Bob Schieffer began his talk with King by taking up for Dan Rather and by saying when asked what he thought about Rather's situation, that he thought it was terrible, that people were going to these lengths. Terrible that, the bloggers on the Internet were waging a Jhad -- Holy War -- on Dan Rather. Bob Schieffer said that he was pleased that John Kerry is up in the polls. Schieffer said that he believed it was due to...

    One day after the Supreme Court sealed the 2000 election for George W. Bush, his running mate, Dick Cheney, went to the Capitol for a private lunch with five moderate Republican senators. The agenda he laid out that day in December 2000 stunned Senator Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, sending Mr. Chafee on a painful journey of political conscience that, he said in an interview last week, has culminated with his decision not to vote for Mr. Bush in November. "I literally was close to falling off my chair," Mr. Chafee said, recounting the vice president's proposals for steep tax...

    [...] Shortly before the debate began, Newsweek national editor Jon Meacham suggested on MSNBC that journalists are tired of Bush being in the lead, and so will try to narrow the race. Meacham foresaw "the possibility that President Bush has peaked about a month too early. Because we all need a narrative to change." Chris Matthews asked: "Is that your prediction?" Meacham replied: "I think it's possible that we're gonna be sitting around saying, 'Well you know Kerry really surprised us.' Because in a way the imperative is to change the story."

    Texas Guard beat President Bush's tenure as a Texas Air National Guard pilot has become a cottage industry in Texas. A group of former guardsmen, led by Bill Burkett, offers up all sorts of sordid Bush stories to any reporter willing to fly into Texas and root around for a while. Former Bush colleagues in the guard have been interviewed scores of times. They tell some interesting stories about their press contacts. One retired officer quotes a reporter for a major East Coast daily as telling him she wants off the Bush guard beat, but her editors tell her to...
