    The long-running news show formerly helmed by Jim Lehrer will make its first major layoffs in nearly 20 years, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The company will close its offices in San Francisco and Denver, and eliminate some of its production positions at its Washington, D.C. headquarters. "The PBS Newshour's" executive producer said that the program hoped to "build new relationships with a variety of locally based freelance video journalists around the country." "A steady drop in corporate revenue" contributed to the program's decision to cut back.
  • PBS NewsHour Fails To Press Left-Wing Activist on Entitlement Inaccuracies

    The PBS NewsHour has yet to invite a strong conservative on the program to talk about the fiscal cliff. Tuesday night they had New York Times columnist, left-wing economist, and Obama cheerleader Paul Krugman to detail his view. Wednesday night they had moderately-conservative Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn), but last night was the most interesting. PBS invited the Norquist of the left, Max Richtman, of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, who insisted we shouldn’t be in a rush to reform our entitlement spending. After all, when the unfunded liability of both programs is around $100 trillion, what’s...

  • NewsHour Stands By Its Balance (PBS too conservative?!)

    PBS NewsHour stands by its political balance in the wake of a study by Fairness and Accuracy in Media (FAIR) that accused it of a lack of balance and diversity and with not providing "a true public-minded alternative to its corporate competition. FAIR, which endeavors to track media bias, says it pored over the show's guest list from October 2005 to November 2006 and found that Republicans outnumbered Democrats two to one, people of color only represented 15% of "U.S. sources," male sources outnumbered women four to one, and "stay the course" war sources outnumbered pro-withdrawl from Iraq sources by...

    I just watched a babbling idiot! I can't believe I'm posting a vanity statement but this guy Sen. Chuck Hagel Republican from Nebraska is incredibly stupid. He sat there with Sen. iden Democrat from Delaware and agreed with every slam at the Bush policy in Iraq whether from the Lehrer moderator or Biden himself. I firmly the liberal media have found their obliging "Republican" to attack the Bush administration and their decisions on Iraq.I had heard this imbecile a few days ago and thought he was totally "off the wall" ...It was impossible to tell what the hell he was...
  • Sacramento Rally for America on PBS

    Rally for America on PBS and a hometown hero. Click to play On the Homefront:  Spencer Michels reports from Sacramento on how the Iraq war is affecting veterans. The best we can do here is the audio.It would have been nice to see former Lt. John Kane representing our veterans and police officers so well, and Stephanie Brown with vets at the VA Hospital here.  We found it a balanced report with our side getting the first and last word for a change. We're sure those members of our Armed Services and their families, who may have viewed it tonight, appreciate the brief scenes from our Rally for...
  • Lehrer's Newshour Uses Our KIAs (vanity)

    The PBS show NEWSHOUR with Tom Lehrer inaugurated a new, subtle, anti-war tactic tonight. They are showing the names and faces of our KIAs from the Iraq war in what they claim is a memorial to our war dead. Apparently they plan to repeat the litany each day with pictures of the accumulated war dead. Imagine the corrosive effect on US morale of showing these personal pictures each day as the battle toll rises. The media CAN defeat our noble purpose in Iraq. Remember VietNam. We won the battles of Tet in the field, but lost the war in the...

    (OMED: Certain references to national socialism in the text below were taken directly from signs carried by pseudo-feminists in public demonstrations between 1960 and 2003.) Femi-Nazi Martha Burke, National Charwoman of the National Council of Women’s Organizations said during a mid-February PBS Lehrer News Hour interview, “Television is still a media run by men.” The interview itself was about the idiotic attack on the men’s golf club that hosts the Masters tournament (April 7-13), one of the most important competitions in the sport. The female fascists of the extreme left have already frightened half of America’s males into giving up...

    Q: Now, Ambassador Richardson with the U.N., and others in the administration have said the military option -- just to pick up, just to continue your sentence -- the military option remains on the table. The Ambassador from Iraq to the U.N. was on our program recently and he pretty much acknowledged that Iraq is banking on that not being real, that the U.S. alone is not going to go in there and take out some suspected anthrax facility, particularly if it's in the palace where Saddam Hussein lives, et cetera, et cetera. CLINTON: The United States does not relish...

    The moron, Margaret Warner of PBS' News Hour is a good example. During her early October segment about the Torricelli campaign dropout disaster, talking to a fellow named Batz from the Washington Post, and a narrow-faced liberal from some other location, something important didn't come up.
