    The scandal grows… It looks like the New York Times is not the only news organization to ignore the greatest scandal in modern science. BBC joins in to “Hide the Decline”– The face in the video belongs to Dr. Michael Mann, the father of the bogus global warming hockey stick graph. The BBC was sent the Climategate files a month ago but refused to cover the story. The Daily Mail reported, via Ace: The controversy surrounding the global warming scandal today deepened after a BBC correspondent admitted he was sent the leaked emails more than a month before they were...

    The London Telegraph has the bombshell report on Ft. Hood jihadist Nidal Hassan’s ties to the September 11 terrorists. Question: Why is it that we have to read British papers to get the unvarnished truths about the Ft. Hood Muslim mass murderer?

    I just surfed through the websites of the local TV stations and the two main newspapers here, The Tennessean and the Trashville City Paper and not a single one of the TV stations or newspaper websites has one article or story on anything to do with unemployment, let alone the fact that the numbers are now at 10.2%. Its disgusting!

    Big Anti-Abortion Rally In Spain Tens of thousands of people have joined a protest march in the Spanish capital Madrid to oppose government plans to liberalise the country's abortion law. Organisers said they hoped more than one million people would attend the rally, from all over the country. Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero wants to introduce abortion on demand. At present, a pregnancy can only be terminated in mainly Catholic Spain under specific circumstances. It is the latest in a series of ethical issues which have pitted the Catholic right against the Socialist government, which has legalised gay...
  • ABC World News Boss on Ignoring ACORN: 'We're Not in the Business of Noise'

    Backing up his anchorman, Charles Gibson, who suggested on the radio that maybe the ACORN story "is just one you leave to the cables," World News executive Jon Banner extended the liberal snobbery on Politico: While Banner admits that some stories may get more attention on cable, blogs or talk radio, it doesn’t mean they’re suited for the "World News" audience. "There’s a tremendous amount of – for lack of a better word – ‘noise’ out there. We’re not in the business of noise."

    Employees at no fewer than four ACORN offices have been caught on videotape advising a man and a woman on how to skirt federal law to obtain housing and operate a brothel — but you'd hardly know it if all you watch and read are the mainstream media, conservative media critics say. "A major national scandal and none of the broadcast networks is covering it," said Dan Gainor, vice president for business and culture at the Media Research Center. "This is the news media in the era of Van Jones and President Obama. The major outlets cover what they want...

    Don: Okay, here’s my news question. A Senate bill yesterday passes, cutting off funds to this group called ACORN. Now, we got that bill passed and we have the embarrassing video of ACORN staffers giving tax advice on how to set up a brothel with 13-year-old hookers. It has everything you could want – corruption and sleazy action at tax-funded organizations and it’s got government ties. But nobody’s covering that story. Why? Gibson: HAHAHAHAHA. HEHEHE. I didn’t even know about it. Um. So, you’ve got me at a loss. I don’t know. Uh. Uh. But my goodness, if it’s got...

    Without ever having been reviewed by either the New York Times or the Washington Post, Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto has now sold one million copies, according to its publisher, Threshold Editions. Levin is a nationally syndicated radio host, president of the Landmark Legal Foundation, and served as chief of staff to Atty. Gen. Ed Meese in the Reagan Justice Department. Liberty and Tyranny has been riding high on non-fiction bestseller lists ever since it was released in late March. It debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times best seller list and has remained in...

    I just listened to abc NEWS which is on TV in another room. There was no mention of happenings in WASHINGTON DC on 9-12-2009. Did I miss the report or did I fall asleap for a few minutes. How could they miss between 100,000 and 1,500,000 people in DC and not report it! Ruy

    This story has everything you could ever want – corruption, sleazy actions at tax-funded organizations, firings, government ties, sex, hookers. It is a network news director’s dream. Imagine the ratings. But almost no one is covering it. Bruce Springsteen once wrote: “From Small Things (Big Things One Day Come).” I doubt he expected that story of love gone wrong would become ideal political commentary for the group known as ACORN. The small scandal showing an embarrassing video of Baltimore ACORN staffers looking like they were giving tax advice on how to set up a brothel, is now national news. --...

    There was a huge protest against Obama's big-government plans at the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, but one was hard-pressed to find evidence of it on the New York Times home page Sunday morning: A small headline tucked under the Political subhead. The print edition wasn't much more forthcoming. Although the Washington D.C. Fire Dept. estimated 60,000 to 70,000 people attended the 9/12 protest, and many estimates are higher, the Times made do with one medium-sized story buried on page A37 of the Sunday paper, "Thousands Attend Broad Protest of Government," teasing it on the front page in a below-the-fold photo...

    Sitting here in my DC hotel room this morning and received the Hotel's USA Today newspaper and took a look through the front page section. Guess What! The USA Today didn't even have any story on the Washington Tea Party. Can you imagine that! No story. The Newspaper media is wondering why their readership is declining its obivious that they are the Obama Media department and they work for the Democratic party. Can you imagine that 1,500,000 people attended a rally in DC to wake up the politicians and they USA Today doesn't cover it. I guess we have the...
  • CNBC's Santelli Rips Media for Ignoring 9/12 DC March (Video)

    Not everyone at the NBC Universal umbrella of networks got the gag order memo about the Sept. 12 march on Washington, D.C. Rick Santelli, who has been a target of the Obama White House and is credited with being the inspiration for the 2009 tea party movement, spoke out about how the media ignored the march. But, a year after the fall of Lehman Brothers, he was making the larger point that the government's intervention to thwart a financial crisis had been an ineffectual and potentially dangerous maneuver at the expense of taxpayers. ...more (w/video)...

    It is pretty freakin' unbelievable that zero doing a mulligan for his wednesday night speech gets more media attention than half a million taxpayers vociferously protesting out of control spending. I'd like to know who is making these decisions, editors, producers, or whoever signs their paychecks. It's a sad state of affairs when our best political reporting comes to us from a Canadian newspaper. There used to be, and probably still are, some pretty good minds in the forth estate, and I wonder where their curiosity got off to. I know that most newspeople are lazy, spoiled, overindulged, opinionated teenagers...

    Just finished watching the NBC News here in the Chicago Market. Guess what? Not a single mention of the rally in Washington DC today. Not one single second. Oh sure, they covered some small ethnic rally in a near south side neighborhood and Obama's speech in Minnesota today for nearly 30 seconds, but for the D.C. Rally? Silence. I just fired off an email to them expressing my disgust and letting them know I was switching to another station for my local news. I've watched Channel 5's news for as long as I can remember, but no more. Enough is...

    Please post any and all coverage or lack of same on the amazing protest today on the mall. At this time C-SPAN is running back "Book Notes", stangely all of a leftist variety. CNN has an endless show on America's terrorism alertness and is showing the story about the boat in the Potamac. C-SPAN2 is also showing pre-recorded stuff. Headline News has a personal finance show on. MS-NBC is showing infomericals. Fox has at least done some coverage but it is minimal, competing with H1N1 vacine stories, and a tabloid murder of a Yale coed.

    The mainstream media has long asserted that there is no such thing as a “liberal bias” when it comes to their coverage. This is an absurd statement. It is every bit as absurd as the Fox News Channel’s “Fair and Balanced” slogan. Let’s get real. All media is biased. Front page news for today is another example of this bias.
