The media calls it ‘negative campaigning’ when the GOP does the job they won’t do
As the holder of a BA in Journalism, I’m always amused when the big market media start hyper-ventilating about Republicans going negative.It’s funny because the big media usually cover for the Democrat candidate (or cover-up, as in the case of John Edwards) and leave the GOP no choice but to ask the hard questions and do the investigative work that big media reporters are supposed | Read More »
For the media so loved John Edwards that they will disparage the other woman.
The media since Edwards’s admission have been nothing if not on the STORY….but the story they are peddling is how a great man like Edwards could be taken in by a tramp like his mistress. Now I am not taking this woman’s side because she knew this letch was married and chose to lay down with him anyway. I could have told her “when you | Read More »

Just exactly what about them and their coverage of the world says they are like us.The so called Mainstream Media have lost enough viewership, and readership over the past 25 years to populate a small country. | Read More »

“Black in America”: The war against fascism in 2008
Much has been made recently of liberal network CNN’s decision to showcase a program called “Black in America”. In this age of constant political correctness as well as extreme liberal bias, this was a documentary that posed as factual news while merely serving as intellectual masturbation for the Political Left. In arguments that have been rebutted time and time again by Black intellectuals from Thomas | Read More »
Acceptance of Arrogant Obama Critique Says a Lot About the Media
After months of adulatory press (minus a few weeks of Jeremiah Wright), have the national media finally begun responding to a large-scale critique of Barack Obama?

Barack Obama–the Master of Illusion….
Call Barack Obama Houdini, because his campaign is one big magic act. He has created illusion after illusion, and the mainstream media have either, let him get away with it, or in some cases, actively aided and abetted him. Please, allow me to explain.
