  • Confusion at Colorado College: Hugh Hewitt whacks Democratic Party hack embracing 9-11 blunder

    Confusion at Colorado College Posted: September 4, 20021:00 a.m. Eastern © 2002 On Sept. 12, the second day of the second year of America's war on terror, Colorado College will host a symposium titled: "September 11: One Year Later." The symposium may not yield much insight into the war, but it tells us all a great deal about the moral confusion that dominates this campus and, I suspect, hundreds of others. As the first speaker on the first day of the conference – the "keynote speaker" according to the college – Colorado College has selected Hanan Ashrawi, a longtime spokeswoman for...
  • Another stunner behind Obama's Libya doctrine (R2P- Holocaust denier helped devise policy)

    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...

Obama went to a soup kitchen, 9/11, a day of service, as though we've got something to apologize for, for what happened on 9/11. A friend of mine observes Obama and Bloomberg both acted like it was a natural disaster. Bush, George W. Bush, who, by the way, stands tall in retrospect. Ten years, not one attack. Great statesmanship. If somebody told me today they wanted to put Bush's face on Mount Rushmore, I'd be in there supporting it. I saw...

    ABC News has learned that Richard Holbrooke, the US Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan, has died. On Friday, Holbrooke was rushed to the hospital with a torn aorta. He went through more than 20 hours of surgery. Earlier this evening, speaking at the US State Department, President Obama sang Holbrooke's praises and called him "a tough son of a gun." Holbrooke, 69, was a former ambassador to the United Nations and served as chief negotiator at the Dayton Peace Accords, which ended the war in Bosnia. The New Yorker's George Packer wrote a nice story about Holbrooke last year,...

    Boston Globe - CONCORD, N.H.: A former national pollster argues in his new book that Al Gore really won the 2000 presidential election, but premature calls by the media for George Bush took Gore's victory away. David Moore's book, "How to Steal an Election," argues Al Gore rightfully won the presidency. Moore, a former University of New Hampshire professor, said he knows his premise is a "hard sell" and insists the book is not partisan. His former bosses -- the Gallup Poll -- disagreed and fired him after he told them about the book last spring, he said. Gallup General...

Iraqi-born Tarik A. Hamdi was the ``American contact'' for one of bin Laden's front organizations and gave a satellite telephone battery to a bin Laden aide in Afghanistan for a phone used by the terrorist leader, according to an affidavit from Customs Agent David Kane.The affidavit was unsealed this week in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., along with a federal indictment charging Hamdi with lying...

    Marking the one-year anniversary of longtime smoker Peter Jennings’ death from lung cancer, ABC’s Dr. Timothy Johnson wrote up a prescription as outdated and ineffective as bleeding a patient: growing government. “At the government level there are three proven techniques. One is to raise prices by increasing taxes, the second is to limit access by minors, and the third is to conduct mass media campaigns,” Johnson said on the August 7 “World News with Charles Gibson.” Although ABC's medical editor went on to slam government for having “dropped the ball” on his prescription, anchor Charles Gibson didn’t include anyone with...

    Simple Bush hatred? Certainly it is an element. An East Coast, effete liberalism that considers legal governmental oversight as dangerous, and maybe more so than al Qaeda? Absolutely. Latent, reflexive anti-Americanism? Yes.

    The word went out on August 8th that Peter Jennings, an icon of American mainstream media, had died at the age of 67. In this day and age, 67 is well below the average life span in America, and it is unfortunate that the ABC News anchor died prematurely due to lung cancer. Often when someone dies, the initial commentary is rather flattering, as people with the smallest amount of good taste will not speak ill of the dead, especially before they’ve been put in the ground. There was plenty of news coverage of Jennings death, and there were a...

West 66th between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue will be Peter Jennings Way as of next Tuesday. Jennings, 67, died in August, just four months after disclosing that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer. He anchored "World News Tonight" for 22 years and, with Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather, was considered one of the Big Three evening-news anchors. Brokaw retired from "NBC Nightly News" in 2004 and Rather from...

    On September 5, 1983, Peter Jennings took the helm of ABC’s World News Tonight as its sole anchor. While his bias during the recent Iraq war was obvious, it is only the latest example of the ABC anchor’s bias. As Jennings framed it, communism was more a phantom menace than a serious threat, and he’s similarly whitewashed the despicable record of terrorist groups such as Hizbullah. On the home front, he resented covering the Clinton scandals, portraying them as tedious sideshows, and billed Republicans as destructive and mean-spirited. Castigating Republicans – and the voters who dare to elect them. The...

    When news of Peter Jennings death reached the masses yesterday morning, most were surprised and shocked, even though Jennings hadn't been on the air for four months, and was fighting incurable lung cancer. With Jenning's death, U.S. viewers are faced with the prospect of having neither Jennings, nor Tom Brokaw, nor Dan Rather sitting in a evening news anchor desk, for the first time since 1981. Why the fuss? Culturally, Jennings death is big news, no matter what one thought of the anchor's opinions or approach. Likely a liberal, Jennings was 'there' for us nonetheless covering the news that affected...

    Peter Jennings was one of 170,000 Americans diagnosed with lung cancer each year. It is the most common form of cancer, responsible for 28 percent of all cancer deaths.

    The recent Dan Rather and Newsweek controversies hardly seem connected. But on closer examination, both incidents symbolize what has gone wrong with traditional news organizations. The old assumption was that opinion media — such as the National Review, The Nation and The New Republic — offer a slant on current events, but that major news outlets, outside of their designated opinion sections, do not. This commitment to disinterested reporting — and along with it the public's trust in mainstream media — has been shattered in recent years. It's easy to see why people no longer feel they can rely on...

Shortly thereafter, he headed to Afghanistan, where he spent the next two months conducting a series of raids with his team, which he called Task Force Saber 7.

    April 6, 2005 -- Peter Jennings will immediately receive chemotherapy for his battle with lung cancer which could indicate the possibility that the ABC anchor has an aggressive type of cancer or one that has already spread. There are two types of lung cancer: small cell and non-small cell and they are treated differently, said Dr. Avi Barbasch, who sits on the board of directors of the American Cancer Society's Eastern Division. "If it's localized and small-cell type, the primary treatment is chemotherapy and it potentially can cure it," Barbasch said.

    ABC seemed ahead of the other networks in looking at Pope John Paul II's legacy through the prism of American liberals who see him as too conservative by U.S. political standards. Before he even passed away, ABC's Peter Jennings insisted that the Pope "was, of course, controversial here. Some American Catholics have chaffed at his insistence that they follow the Church's traditional social doctrines." Dean Reynolds cited "abortion, birth control, women priests" as issues which have "all driven a wedge between the Vatican and America." Less than two hours after ABC News reported the Pope's death on Saturday afternoon, anchor...

For the fist time in more than ten days, the newscast had no Schiavo story and didn't utter a syllable about Jackson, but Peter Jennings found time to pick up on a liberal cause celebre, abuse of...

    Almost 50 percent of Americans, according to recent polls, and millions of people elsewhere in the world believe that UFOs are real. For many it is a deeply held belief. For decades there have been sightings of UFOs by millions and millions of people. It is a mystery that only science can solve, and yet the phenomenon remains largely unexamined. Most of the reporting on this subject by the mainstream media holds those who claim to have seen UFOs up to ridicule. On Feb. 24, "Peter Jennings Reporting: UFOs — Seeing Is Believing" takes a fresh look at the UFO...

    WHY would a serious journalist like Peter Jennings tackle a silly subject like UFOs? Maybe it's because 40 million Americans can't be wrong. It turns out that 40 million of us have claimed to have seen UFOs, while half — yes, half — of all Americans believe in their existence… < snip > So, why, if millions of people have seen UFOs, are the eyewitnesses immediately reduced to the level of raving loonies (from "lunar")? Interestingly enough, that is the legacy of another successful government PR campaign…< snip > The feds thought they could keep a lid on UFO sightings...

    Flying saucers and strange beings who have visited Earth aren't the typical topics reported by Peter Jennings, anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight." Jennings, whose new two-hour special tackles the subject of UFOs, admits he and his production team began the project with doubts and a dose of curiosity. "We have a lot of skeptics -- I am very skeptical -- but we seriously investigated something a lot of people are serious about," he said. "And when we come to the end, this is wonderfully interesting. "More than 80 million Americans believe intelligent beings from somewhere else have come here,"...

    In the span of more than 40 years with ABC News, Peter Jennings has built one of the most respected reputations in television journalism. Recently, Jennings anchored "World News Tonight" from Iraq. He returned to the States, only to hit the road again. Tomorrow and Thursday "World News Tonight" reports from Seattle, where Jennings and his team will examine our region's industries. "One of the great frustrations common to people like me ... is not getting out enough," he said in a phone interview, calling his Iraq tour some of the happiest days he's had in his life. Having spent...
  • Death Throes of the Mainstream Media

    "Denial" – that popular psychobabble term – gained immense credibility in the last century as a result of "experts" who tried to convince the public that people who looked at a blue sky and called it pink were somehow not responsible for their perceptions. If one really believed that, they said, he or she must be "in denial" and therefore more worthy of "treatment" (or pity) than scorn. The idea had widespread implications. Simply excise the notion of accountability from the public imagination and anything was possible! Women who chose to destroy their in-utero infants could deny their acts by...

    I couldn't find this posted before... if so, mea culpa Anchors Dan Rather and Peter Jennings, NPR Reporter Cokie Roberts, along with a U.S. Marine assigned to protect them were hiking through the Iraq desert one day when they were captured by Iraqis. They were tied up, led to a village, and brought before the leader. The leader said, "I am familiar with your western custom of granting the condemned a last wish; so, before we kill and dismember you, do you have any last requests?" Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan; so I'd like one last bowlful of...

    Reporting from Iraq on Monday night where he traveled on a patrol with the 1st Calvary, ABC's Peter Jennings noted that "the U.S. is spending millions of dollars here on sewer pipes, sewage treatment, landfills for garbage, available clean water." Jennings asked: "How does the U.S. get credit for this?" Well not from the news media, as Jennings acknowledged that "every U.S. officer encountered today said the media has missed or under- reported this part of the U.S. mission." On the January 24 World News Tonight, over video of himself wearing a helmet as he walked alongside soldiers, Jennings recounted...
