    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    Architect of Mission to Save Allied Airmen Trapped Behind Enemy Lines Awarded Bronze StarA New York City man was honored Sunday for his role in a little-known chapter of World War II. The U.S. government awarded George Vujnovich the bronze star for orchestrating the daring rescue of hundreds of trapped American airmen. "I feel we should have helped those men," says Vujnovich. For a half-century he lived a humble life as salesman in blue collar Queens, New York. During World War II he was a 29-year-old officer for the Office of Strategic Services - the CIA of its day -...

    The roughly 5000 unspeakable acts of murder and mayhem committed by Islamofascist terrorists on innocent people just since 9/11 have got me wondering – did we come in on the wrong side in the conflict between the Serbians (Christians) and the Bosnians (Muslims) in the former Yugoslavia, and have we and the western world gone after the wrong group of war criminals? I am well aware of the horrendous barbarities committed by the Serbians against the Bosnians and others, but do we really know what transpired to drive them to these acts before the conflict aroused our interest? I admit...

    To judge from the way the weekend's box office is breathlessly reported in the news bulletins on Monday morning, more people seem to be interested in movie grosses than in the movies. Evidently, Hollywood's now recovered from this summer's all-time record "box office slump." Or at any rate news stories about the box office slump have themselves slumped. In a breathless dispatch on the opening weekend of ''Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,'' the Associated Press reported that ''the latest Potter movie led a lineup that helped reverse the Hollywood box-office slump." I wouldn't say the boy wizard and...

    There is a bloc of voters that may easily decide the forthcoming election. A little over a million Serbian-Americans—their exact number is uncertain but this is a conservative estimate—are likely to vote this year in greater numbers than ever before. The significance of this group becomes obvious if we look at its geographic distribution. After Chicago, the main Serbian-American centers are Pittsburgh, PA; Cleveland, OH; and Milwaukee, WI. There are thousands of retirees in Florida and sizeable pockets in St. Louis (MO) and suburban New Jersey. In each of those states the size of the community exceeds the likely margin...

    <p>An outgoing deputy prime minister, Nebojsa Covic, said voters had punished the reformist government for failing to raise living standards.</p> <p>"Living standards." There’s always an excuse for hatred, it seems: "We supported Hitler because the economy was bad," or "We didn’t oppose Stalin because he kept order." The behavior of many Serbians over the last decade sickens me. Remember the TV images of Serbian youth holding rock concerts in support of their soldiers’ genocidal activities in Kosovo? Just to set the record straight, I’ll once again remind people of the blood that some (not all) Serbians have on their hands.</p>

    A court in Bonn has rejected a claim by a group of Serbians seeking damages stemming from an incident in the 1999 Kosovo war. Ten civilians were killed and 17 others seriously wounded in the attack on a bridge in the southern-Serbian town of Varvarin. The 35 Serbians who brought the case were either injured or lost loved ones in the attack. They were seeking one million euros in damages from the German government, representing all NATO-members. They argued that the German government was directly or indirectly responsible for the air strike, because it took part in the NATO military...
