  • Reporter Goes Berserk While Covering Event Where Press Criticized

    A little thin-skinned, aren't we? One thing the press can't stand is criticism. And sometimes the reaction of members of the press to criticism goes so over the top that the results are absolutely hilarious. Such was the case of Marci Shatzman, a reporter for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel Forum Publishing Group who was covering a routine meeting of the West Boca Community Council in Florida. What set Marci off to act completely unprofessional at the 43 second mark of this video was guest speaker Andre Fladell daring to criticize  members of the press for acting...unprofessional.

    If you've been following the news this week, you'd get the impression that America is a scandal-plagued nation. Scandals to the right of us, scandals to the left of us. Take your pick. There’s the media assault on GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, the deadly "Fast and Furious" federal gun-running case, the Solyndra solar loan fiasco, the collapse of MF Global, led by former Democratic N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine and, of course, the deeply disturbing allegations of child sexual abuse at Penn State. But the real scandal isn’t any one of those. It’s how journalists pick and choose which controversies...

    Drugged, Raped, and Pregnant? Too bad -- Republicans are Pushing to Limit Rape and Incest Cases Eligible for Government Abortion Funding Rape is only really rape if it involves force, according to the new House Republican majority as it now moves to change abortion law. For years, federal laws restricting the use of government funds to pay for abortions have included exemptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, with another exemption covering pregnancies that could endanger the life of the mother. But the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," contains a provision that would rewrite the rules to drastically...
  • View From The Left

    05/15/2010 7:03:33 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies · 633+ views ^ | May 14, 2010 | Rich Tucker
    Journalists frequently claim they’re impartial arbiters. They purport to “speak truth to power,” “afflict the comfortable” and a whole series of similar tired clichés. But the reality is that what you see depends on where you stand. And in journalism, that’s all too often on the left. Consider stories culled from just two day’s worth of The Washington Post. “Poll finds gains for same-sex marriage,” announces the headline over the lead story in the Metro section on May 11. “Maryland residents are shifting toward a more positive opinion of same-sex marriage, with registered voters now narrowly supporting a law to...

I’m going from one local weekly paper to another, the Wallowa County Chieftain in Enterprise, in the far northeastern corner of the state. Wallowa County, where cattle outnumber humans and Republicans outnumber Democrats, is a little different from our twin valleys. But the game called community journalism is the same. Wallowa County depends on the Chieftain, the county’s only newspaper other than a daily published in a neighboring...

    The painter who created the controversial "Obama as Christ" painting is back. Artist Michael D'Antuono, who apologized for offending people and withdrew his original painting, titled "The Truth," from a scheduled NYC showing on President Obama's 100th day in office, has just unveiled a new Obama painting (larger version below the fold). However, D'Antuono was a bit disingenuous in the explanation of his surprise that people were offended by his first Obama painting as you can see in this press release: Artist Michael D'Antuono Responds To 'Truth' Critics With Second Obama PaintingNEW YORK, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael D'Antuono, the...

    Google "shoe-thrower" and "Pulitzer" this morning, and you will get a surprising number of hits. From the streets of Baghdad to the blogs of North America, some are hailing reporter Muntadar al-Zeidi as a hero for having the spine to do what journalists should have done years ago. They are wrong. "This is a farewell kiss, you dog," al-Zeidi yelled as he flung his shoes toward President Bush Sunday, in the most entertaining presidential news conference moment since Dan Rather confronted Richard Nixon 35 years ago. As someone who has attended hundreds of news conferences, including dozens at the White...

    Folks, The Democrat Machine (which includes the press) is scared. If Obama continues to slide in the polls, they will turn into a frightened, enraged bull, trampling and goring anything and everything in its path. So brace yourself now for the Mother of all October Surprises. It's going to be an invented scandal a day, drip, drip, drip, turning into a torrent in the final week before election day. What do I recommend?This: No matter what you see or hear that is negative about McCain-Palin, do not believe it. I don't care how egregious the charge may be: McCain is...

    But Mom! Everybody does it!Remember using that tactic as a kid when you're parents criticized your participation in the latest craze or fad? Pretty immature, wasn't it?Well, the press is employing that same tactic to defend their candidate's multiple "present" votes in the Illinois Senate. Check this out from the Leftist Press: "We don't have a 'present' button as governor - we are expected to lead..." said Palin, who is in her first term as Alaska's governor. Palin was referring to Obama's days in the Illinois Senate, when he voted "present" dozens of times among the thousands of votes he...

    Reuters went to bat for its candidate, hoping to give him a boost after the shellacking Mac gave him at Saddle Back last weekend. It probably felt more like Brokeback to the Senator from Chicago.Anyway, Reuters published a subtle little piece on patriotism and the presidential candidates. In it, they call white America racist and questions its patriotism.Here's the first excerpt:The U.S. presidential election presents a sharp contrast between two types of patriotism: John McCain stands as a war hero. His rival Barack Obama calls Americans back to the can-do spirit of the nation's founders.When in the heck has Obama...

    The worst economy since the great depression… Remember the constant bleating from the press and the anti-Bush crowd about how the Bush administration “cherry picked” intelligence? They allege that the president chose only those bits of information that fit his plans and ignored everything else. Well, the press has been cherry picking economic news for years. How many news items have you seen featuring some town, family, or business that’s doing ok, despite everything? How often do you hear or read something that puts the housing “crisis” in perspective (it’s not a crisis). Falling prices mean those who previously could...

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 29 Sept 2007 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    The Constitution is simple, short and easy to read. There is no excuse for any reporter to write about it, without reading it. The latest example is an article about anchor babies in the Orlando Sentinel today (29 September) by Jim Stratton. The article concerns a comment about anchor babies by Fred Thompson, Republican candidate for President. If you haven’t followed the illegal immigration debate, anchor babies are children born on US soil of illegal immigrant parents. The babies get citizenship. Then, the provisions for “reuniting families” kick in, and the baby assists the parents in becoming legal. It is...

    A notable decline in the core business of the New York Times Company has been underway, and yet is not reported in a straightforward way in the company’s official filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC requires companies to file Form 10-K every year, to provide “a comprehensive overview of the company’s business and financial condition and… audited financial statements.” The SEC’s 10-K official rules require companies to “Provide any discussion of risk factors in plain English….” At the beginning of its 2005 10-K annual report to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York Times Company proudly...
