    The top section of the antenna from the North Tower of the World Trade Center which had been on display at a Washington D.C. museum is being put in storage—instead of going to National 9/11 Memorial and Museum in Manhattan. The 360-foot antenna carried the signal of most of New York City’s television broadcasters and a few radio stations, including WNYC. Since 2008, a section of it has been part of the Newseum's September 11th exhibit, which also includes newspaper headlines and videos. But the Newseum, whose mission was to "increase public understanding of the importance of a free press...

    Two of the best known hosts on WNYC, Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz, have been placed on what the station called an "indefinite leave." "Effective immediately, Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz are no longer on the air," news anchor Shumita Basu said on the station's noon newscast. The station's parent organization, New York Public Radio, said the two men have been sidelined "pending an investigation into accusations of inappropriate conduct." The station would not comment on the nature of the accusations.
  • CNN Editorial: The real 'anchor babies' are conservatives, not Asians

    There are few uglier phrases in the modern conservative lexicon than "anchor baby," not least because of the literal imagery the term brings to mind of a human infant, wrapped in chains and flung overboard to secure a vessel in place. But even as a figure of speech, it's a despicable concept. It refers to the notion that undocumented immigrants exploit the quintessentially American policy of birthright citizenship, which confers the status of citizen to anyone born on U.S. territory, by sneaking across the border to give birth to their children. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush recently stumbled into the...

    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...

    Law enforcement officials revealed Thursday that a janitor at a New York City public radio station was arrested earlier this month for stealing credit card and personal check information from the station’s donor rolls, then selling the data to a major identity-theft ring. The New York Post reports Friday that 198 donor records from WNYC – a National Public Radio affiliate based in the city - were found in possession of an identity-fraud ring. The probe into the multi-state ring began last July. The maintenance worker was arrested on July 15, and is now facing grand larceny and conspiracy charges....
