    Tuesday afternoon, a local elementary school student, Peter Collins, was arrested for bringing a “tornado in a bottle” to school for the annual Denysin Elementary science fair. Authorities were alerted after it was reported that a student had what appeared to be an “atmospheric weapon of destruction” on school grounds. The school was quickly evacuated, as the Denver bomb squad was called in to deal with collecting and neutralizing Collins’ second grade science fair project. Teachers close to Collins noted that Collins was a, “stellar student’ and they were, “shocked to learn someone like that could be capable of doing...

    (CNSNews.com) - Another former ABC News correspondent has stepped forward to accuse long-time World News Tonight anchor Peter Jennings of inserting a liberal editorial bias in the news copy of reporters in the field.

Zelnick, now the chairman of the journalism department at Boston University, left ABC News in 1998 after executives refused to renew his contract because they feared Zelnick's...

    More and more reporters are stepping out to disclose bias in the press.First was CBS News reporter Bernard Goldberg, a 28-year veteran of the network until being forced off the air, charging that bias at the big-three network is so obvious and comes so naturally to media luminaries such as Dan Rather that "it's hardly worth discussing anymore."Oh, yes, it is worth discussing, says Peter Collins, for nine years ABC News' correspondent in Central America, reporting for "World News Tonight" and "Nightline." Recently retired from journalism and feeling "liberated," Mr. Collins charges that ABC anchorman Peter Jennings manipulated news scripts...
