  • Texas Rep. Tells Muslims at Austin Rally to Take Loyalty Oath

    As hundreds of Muslim Texans faced a barrage of protesters during a rally, a state lawmaker sparked a storm by demanding that the Islamic community "publicly announce allegiance to America." Thursday's gathering in Austin, called the Texas Muslim Capital Day, was organized by the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to encourage Muslims to speak with their state representatives about their issues, according to USA Today. But two dozen sign-wielding demonstrators disrupted the meeting, while freshman state Rep. Molly White ignited a furor by calling for Muslim attendees to declare their allegiance to the U.S. "and our...

    The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel found itself a friend in major American newspaper USA Today recently, when a press release about its efforts to have Alicia Keys cancel her upcoming show in Israel appeared almost verbatim in an article on the newspaper’s website. The American Journalist Jeffrey Goldberg first tweeted about the disturbing similarities Thursday, a day after the article appeared. “@USATODAY ran a BDS press release as a story. Here’s the newspaper piece Here’s the release” he wrote.

  • Anyone Read the Palin Segment in USA Today Magazine in Yesterday's Sunday Paper (June 13)? (Vanity)

    06/14/2010 8:02:38 AM PDT · by AUJenn · 27 replies · 701+ views
    We get USA Today Magazine insert in our Sunday paper. The cover yesterday has (in small print) "Sarah Palin Touches a Nerve with Our Readers." Out of curiosity I flipped through to find the article. What a joke! It was a one-page group of 'letters to the editor' (about 10 letters) regarding Palin's recent Mother's Day cover. All but one letter was hateful, dishonest, and downright nasty. Accusing her of having a "dysfunctional family" (huh?) and furious with USA Today Magazine for featuring her, calling it "inappropriate." Where do they find these people? What's the deal with such vicious attacks...

    Unpaid furloughs at Gannett Co. Inc. in McLean will now include nearly 1,500 employees at its flagship USA Today. USA Today employees will be required to take one week of unpaid leave between now and July. In a memo to employees Thursday, USA Today publisher David Hunke also said an existing pay freeze, first implemented in February 2009, will be extended by at least 90 days. A USA Today spokesperson confirms the furloughs and pay freeze extension affect all 1,495 of USA Today’s employees.

  • Impressive Media Malpractice at March For Life

    American Thinker ^ | January 23, 2010 | Jack Cashill
    In January 2009 we brought a six-man camera crew to Washington to create a documentary on the subject of the annual March for Life called Thine Eyes. What motivated Steve Sanborn, the organizer of the project and a March veteran, was the media's historic failure to capture the numbers, the demographics or the spirit of the marchers. With the advantage of rooftop cameras, we estimated there were about 350,000 participants, about 75 percent of whom were under 25, with more females than males among the young people. I also assigned our six cameramen to find as many pro-abortion protestors as...

    NEW YORK — The Wall Street Journal has surpassed USA Today as the top-selling daily newspaper in the United States. The Audit Bureau of Circulations won't be releasing its latest figures until Oct. 26, but the Journal said Wednesday that it gained about 12,000 subscribers in the April-September period, compared with a year earlier. That puts its average Monday-Friday circulation at 2.02 million. The Journal claimed the top spot last week after USA Today released its circulation figures early, but had not given out specifics until Wednesday. USA Today, which has long been No. 1, said last week that it...

    Is this what Time magazine meant with their July 6th cover, What Barack Obama Can Learn From FDR? Not one to let "a serious crisis to go to waste," Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the onset of the Great Depression as an excuse to immediately begin delivering New Deal dollars in unprecedented amounts - with laser-like political precision to electorally important parts of the country. He sailed to landslide reelection in 1936 on a federally-funded tailwind. The New Deal is now an old one - as direct mail guru Richard Viguerie describes it, "We've got money, you've got votes, let's talk."...

    I thought that by now President Obama had fixed the Immigration problem. After all he has done for the economy, you would think that most illegal immigrants had left the country to go look for a job, but apparently not. The Center for Immigration Studies believes that up to 15% of the new federally funded construction Jobs called for in the massive stimulus signed by President Obama, will be filled by people who are in the country illegally. $104 billion for construction projects [in the bill] should create construction-related jobs for about 2.04 million workers over several years. The Center...

    In the debate about Hollywood pay scales, Hollywood actors argue they are being squeezed out of pay and health benefits. "Middle-class film and TV actors -- defined by SAG as those who earn enough to qualify for the union's health insurance but less than $100,000 a year -- are hardly representative: They account for less than 5% of the guild's 122,000 members. "Nonetheless, this sliver plays an outsize role within the union because the vast majority of members don't...earn a livelihood from acting. 'If we can't reverse the trends for working-class actors, we'll cease to exist,' said SAG President Alan...
  • Which Americans are famous for high school students?

    A USA Today story "High schoolers name women, black Americans 'most famous'" by Greg Toppo (no link for copyright reasons) lists the 10 most famous Americans (excluding presidents and first ladies) according to high school students. I think 8 of the 10 figures ought to be covered in history classes (excluding Oprah Winfrey and Marilyn Monroe), but it does appear that who gets taught is being determined by race and sex quotas.

    The Gallup News Service ^ | 12/26/07 | Jeffrey M. Jones
    For the sixth year in a row, President George W. Bush is the most admired man and Sen. Hillary Clinton the most admired woman in Gallup's annual survey. But neither winner had a very decisive win this year, with former President Bill Clinton nearly tying Bush and Hillary Clinton barely topping talk-show host Oprah Winfrey. This is the seventh time Bush has been most admired man and the 12th time Clinton has been most admired woman. These results are based on the Dec. 14-16 USA Today/Gallup poll, which asked Americans, without prompting, to say what man and woman "living today...
