    Like all charming and physically imposing persons, Ben Bradlee had an enormous head. There. I said it: the last original observation not already to be found in the three billion words of tribute that poured forth after the death last week of Bradlee, the great editor of the Washington Post and an essential figure in the late-20th-century American establishment. And itÂ’s true, when you met Bradlee and spoke to him, the thing that really overwhelmed you, more than the face-famous good looks and the booming voice inflected with Beacon Hill lockjaw, was the sheer scale of that melon rising up...

    Setting the Record Straight by: Heather Latham, April 07, 2009 There is a lot of truth in the world—“but you have to do a lot of digging to get it… [T]his is the point that” author M. Stanton Evans wanted “to stress most of all to…the younger folk” at the Accuracy in Media (AIM) Reed Irvine Awards during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February. Evans, who won this year’s lifetime achievement award, applied this advice to more than just aspiring journalists. After listing a few careers, he said, “[A] huge amount of work needs to be done on...

    Doing the kind of investigative reporting we should expect from the major media, a financial research and consulting firm has released a major analysis of the “credit crisis” that concludes that the claims made by Treasury Department Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke to justify a socialist takeover of the financial industry were demonstrably false. The analysis, Flawed Assumptions about the Credit Crisis: A Critical Examination of US Policymakers,concludes that the result of the unjustified massive federal intervention in the economy could be similar to the economic crisis in the Weimar Republic of 1922, where disastrous hyperinflation...

    Defining Bias Downward Holding Political Power to Account Is Not Some Liberal Plot Reed Irvine, the energetic liberal-bias hunter who died November 16 at eighty-two, wasn’t always wrong. Irvine founded Accuracy in Media, the conservative press watchdog group, thirty-five years ago. He was stone blind to his own prejudices, and he could be scurrilous and unfair in his attacks, but he knew something about our major media, most of them based in the urban capitals of what we now call blue states and influenced, naturally, by their context. Irvine must have been amazed in the end by all the company...

    Two things took place recently that were, in a strange way, interconnected. The good thing was that Dan Rather announced his resignation; the bad thing was that Reed Irvine died. The odd thing is that I was saddened by the news of Mr. Irvine’s passing even though, until I’d read his obituary, I had never even heard of the man. It seems that until he was 47 years old, Reed Irvine had been an economist with the Federal Reserve. Then, at an age when so many men are content to work on their slice, perfect their fly-casting skills or start...

    My friend Reed Irvine died this week. Although we disagreed on some matters, I always admired Reed as one of the toughest warriors I knew. I gave one of my first speeches at one of his events almost 20 years ago. I was so nervous speaking to a conservative audience that I wrote out my entire speech and read it. Afterward several people came up to me and complimented me on what I had said. But Reed came up to me and said, "You know, people get bored when you read a speech; you should make your speeches extemporaneous." Reed...

    Reed Irvine, the founder of Accuracy in Media, a watchdog group dedicated to exposing, challenging and at times bullying those he accused of slanting news coverage from a liberal perspective, died on Tuesday at a hospice in Rockville, Md. He was 82. A longtime resident of Silver Spring, Md., Mr. Irvine had recently moved to Gaithersburg, Md. The cause was complications of a stroke, said his son, Donald, AIM's current chairman. Founded in 1969, Accuracy in Media is a group that, as Mr. Irvine described it, was intended to be "representative of the consumers of the journalistic product and not...

    Reed Irvine, the founder and chairman emeritus of Accuracy in Media and a tireless warrior in the battle to keep the press honest, died yesterday. Irvine, considered a giant in the media-watchdog arena, founded AIM in 1969 and has been diligently working to combat distortion and bias in the media ever since. WorldNetDaily founder and Editor Joseph Farah praised Irvine's vision and tenacity. "Without the extraordinary work of Reed Irvine dating back 35 years, even people like me – media insiders – would never have grasped the extent of institutional problems within the industry," Farah said.

    Reed Irvine, the indefatigable founder of Accuracy in Media and one of the very first people to question the received wisdom of the news media, passed away last night. He was 82. As a media critic, Reed Irvine was a trailblazer. While much of America was still blinded to the still fairly new notion that journalists could rise above their human nature and deliver the news without even a scintilla of bias, Irvine knew better. Decades before the internet and talk radio, Reed Irvine set out to change that. Little did he know that his shoestring group Accuracy in Media...

    A true-life hero passed on yesterday, November 16, 2004. In physical stature, Accuracy in Media founder Reed Irvine was just a little guy. With a slim figure that busted all over Washington D.C. corridors of power, his lifelong mission was one that always kept the little guy in mind. With stamina to spare, even at age 80, Reed Irvine was still going to the office. There was something almost childlike about Reed’s unflagging belief and confidence that a wayward mainline media could be held to account. He critiqued their errors and omissions better than any journalism teacher, and kept at...

    On Feb. 1, a Baltimore jury gave radio talk-show host G. Gordon Liddy a victory over Maxie Wells -- regarded by some as a surrogate for former White House counsel John Dean -- who was expected to testify but did not show. Seven of the nine jurors agreed that Liddy had not libeled Wells. Judge J. Frederick Motz declared a mistrial even though the jurors had deliberated for only eight hours. After two hours of arguments, he dismissed the case, saying, "Having carefully considered all of the evidence, I do not believe a reasonable jury could find Mr. Liddy was...

In a March 11 house editorial, "Mayor Bloomberg's Commitment Issue," the newspaper in so many words demanded that Bloomberg embrace same-sex marriage, and begin personally officiating at same-sex weddings in the mayoral residence of Grace Mansion, forthwith. Or else. "He doesn't officiate at weddings at Gracie Mansion, a previously time-honored tradition for mayors of New York. And it seems that he has a problem committing on the issue of gay marriage.

    From the Right: John Kerry vs Oliver North John Kerry Senator and democratic presidential candidate John Kerry has received some media scrutiny for his claim that when he voted for the war in Iraq, he only approved the threat of force. That waffling has made some question whether he can be trusted to protect the national security interests of the United States. But the media have failed to challenge some of his other foreign policy claims. One of the ironies in Senator John Kerry's campaign for president is that he's a Vietnam veteran who has made another Vietnam veteran, Oliver...

    SOVIET TERROR LINKS FOUND IN LEBANON Our major media have long ignored or downplayed evidence linking the Soviet Union and its satellites to international terrorism. When Robert Moss, co- author of The Spike, told an international conference on terrorism held in Jerusalem in 1981 that the PLO had become a Soviet surrogate in the Middle East, the reaction of the representatives of the press was one of cynicism mixed with hostility. Wall Street Journal correspondent Susan Weaver explained the negative reaction to Moss's statement, saying that linking the KGB with world terrorism through the PLO "cast a dark shadow on...

Today’s pampered, pc journalists engage instead in radical misrepresentation, act as mouthpieces for their revolutionary allies, and silence their opponents. And so it is, with radical homosexuals’ attempt to destroy, or as they would say, “transform,” civilization through its most fundamental institution, marriage.

The news media came in last with 54 percent of those polled saying they had "a great deal" or a "fair amount" of confidence that the media are reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly. Thirty-five percent said they had little confidence in the reporting and eleven percent said they had none at all. The government got more...

    CATASTROPHIC INTELLIGENCE FAILURE In 1995, the CIA and the FBI learned that Osama bin Laden was planning to hijack U.S. airliners and use them as bombs to attack important targets in the U.S. This scheme was called Project Bojinka. It was discovered in the Philippines, where authorities arrested two of bin Laden's agents, Ramzi Yousef and Abdul Hakim Murad. They were involved in planting a bomb on a Philippine airliner. Project Bojinka, which Philip-pine authorities found outlined on Abdul Murad's laptop, called for planting bombs on eleven U.S. airliners and hijacking others and crashing them into targets like the CIA ...

    CBS Promotes Same-Sex Marriage By Reed Irvine The legalization of same-sex marriage by two Canadian courts has put new life into the homosexual campaign for its legalization in this country. In 1996 a Circuit Court judge overturned the law in Hawaii that barred same-sex marriages. This resulted in the prompt passage of a federal law defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. In 1998, 69% of the voters in Hawaii disappointed the homosexuals by approving an amendment to the state constitution that defined marriage the same way.

Howard Kurtz, the media critic for both The Washington Post and CNN, predicts that he will probably replace Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts by this fall. He says this has sparked criticism from conservatives concerned about Stephanopoulos’s past services to Bill Clinton, but Paul Friedman, the executive vice president of ABC News, says they have had no complaints about his fairness in covering the news.

The attention now being given to them by the media is forcing the church hierarchy to take action to see that the offenders are rooted out and appropriately punished. But the media have paid no attention to a book-length report by an organization called Human Rights Watch titled No Escape on a study of inmates in American prisons raping other male prisoners. This report says that...
