    Edward Wyatt / New York Times: A CBS Reality Show Draws a Claim of Possible Child Abuse — The ads promoting "Kid Nation," a new reality show coming to CBS next month, extol the incredible experience of a group of 40 children, ages 8 to 15, who built a sort of idealistic society in a New Mexico ghost town, free of adults.


    But its amazing how many stories Ive read that Imus' Ranch takes advantage of cancer kids by "forced labor"[which it isnt]
    At least with other "reality" shows the people who are risking their lives for our entertainment are willing adults... not sure I like this idea much. And ya.. I heard the Imus rumblings from the MSM also... idiots.

    CAIR in trouble? New York Times to the Rescue [Andy McCarthy]

    The Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial in Texas is piling up evidence showing CAIR's ties to Hamas and the Palestinian Committee of the Muslim Brotherhood. Alas, the New York Times, though doing virtually no reporting about that, is, as usual, running interference for CAIR. The Gray Lady's stories, Steve Emerson aptly observes, may as well be CAIR press releases. Steve's latest post can be found at the Counterterrorism Blog.

    ^^^ Yup... the NYT shilling for CAIR as usual. Like minded people with similar agendas. Who could be surprised?

    Wonder if the "editors" from Kos and the DU moonlight at the BBC..

    More Hate Speech at BBC Message Boards

    The BBC is in trouble today for once again allowing ugly antisemitic and anti-Christian slurs to remain posted at the BBC 5 message boards, while instantly deleting any criticism of Islam: BBC forced to removed ‘bastard’ slur about Jesus from its website.

    The BBC has been forced to remove statements from its website referring to Jesus as a ‘bastard’.

    It is the latest in a string of offensive comments that BBC editors have allowed members of the public to post. The remarks have been allowed to remain for weeks, despite complaints from religious groups.

    It has led to claims that the BBC is allowing its output to be hijacked by extremists while censoring anti-Muslim sentiment.

    The remarks about Jesus were left as part of a discussion of the death of the Archbishop of Paris. The debate had descended into an argument about the merits of Christians, Jews and Muslims when a writer, known as ‘colonelartist’, posted: “Are you a christian? You do know that jesus had to hide all his short life he lived in those promised land because his tribesmen used to call him fatherless, ridiculed him for being a B-A-S-T-A-R-D...’

    He added: ”Jesus...was also persecuted because the jews would never accept as their Messiah a person whose father was missing...’

    The comments were allowed to remain for a week despite complaints. But after The Mail on Sunday contacted senior BBC officials, they were deleted.

    Colonelartist is a regular contributor to the BBC site. He has also written: “The jews in much remembered concentration camps had even better qualitity of freedom that these palestinians have...”

    One website user wanted to see if BBC editors were allowing these offensive remarks to remain while blocking others. He wrote: “No one can surpass the Muslims for denial of their role in Terrorism and Suicide bombing.” The remarks were almost immediately deleted
    .
    For more on this and many other examples of the outrageously open bias and tacit support for hate speech at the BBC 5 board, see TheyMadeItUp.

    Re: No MSM bias to see here... move along..

    Spot on.

    The Media Mob

    When Karl Rove resigned from his White House job last week, to a chorus of yowling cat-calls from furious news writers around the country, some scribblers were particularly offended by a word Mr. Rove used for his good friends in the media: The word "mob." Rove was quoted in the Wall Street Journal as saying,

    "I'm not going to stay or leave based on whether it pleases the mob."

    Touché, Karl.

    Not just one, but two separate Washington Post staffers split the peaceful summer night with howls of outrage. Eugene Robinson and Monica Hesse tore at Mr. Rove's flesh in two WaPo columns, just for using that little word, "mob."

    Their united outrage proved his point: They are a mob. Funny, because the Media Mob commonly describes itself in just those terms: as "sharks" looking for "blood in the water" to start a "feeding frenzy." "What bleeds, leads." Sounds like a classic lynch mob, doesn't it? But the victims aren't supposed to answer back. They must hemorrhage silently, while the drooling newshounds bay at the moon to celebrate yet another kill. Well, Mr. Rove didn't play along this time.

    In 1991, Supreme Court Justice-to-be Clarence Thomas struck back with the words "high-tech lynching" to describe the smears hurled at him by the liberal media to kill his chances at the Senate Judiciary Committee. For a few days the white Media Mob froze in its tracks. Perhaps at that magic moment it recognized itself as a mob in a Black man's eyes. Because Justice Thomas was born in the Jim Crow South, and he knew exactly what he was talking about when it came to lynch mobs. Clarence Thomas' nomination passed the Committee within days of his verbal counter-attack. Then the Media Mob just fell back into its old ways.

    The Big Media are a mob. That should be Politics 101. They are a tiny, unchecked power elite, locked into life-long careers in the remnant of a crumbling monopoly over America's national conversation. Like other unaccountable elites, they are monumentally fickle, self-indulgent, snobbish, vain, vulgar, entitled, incestuous, arrogant, ignorant, unprincipled, hysterical, and demagogic. They sound like a unified chorus for the same reasons that street mobs run as a group -- because by and large, they don't dare to stand alone. Media snobs are always looking over their shoulders to see if they are still singing from the same hymnal as The New York Times. The US media have been one-sidedly Leftist, while piously proclaiming their devotion to impartiality. Thus, they are also institutionally mendacious. Telling the truth is hardly their job. They're just not qualified.


    During the Stalin era the New York Times sent Soviet boot-licker Walter Duranty to be its correspondent in Moscow, and after careful reconsideration of his genocide cover-up stories for the Times, for which he received a Pulitzer Prize, the Pinch Sulzberger mob decided that the NYT deserved to keep Duranty's Pulitzer. (As indeed it does; nothing is more revealing than the prizes these frauds keep awarding themselves.)

    But we don't have to look all the way back to the 1930s. On any given day, any similarity between the headlines and the most important events of the day is purely coincidental; it's all a matter of "editorial judgment." My local liberal rag just had a page-one color cover of the earthquake tragedy in Peru, taking an estimated 500 lives. That is entirely appropriate. On the same day they blacked out the Al-Qaeda truck bombing of Iraqi Yazidi Kurds, which also took some 500 innocent lives. A natural tragedy receives page one treatment with color photos; a simultaneous mass murder by America's most threatening and savage enemies is stashed away in a dark corner. Our entire national thought process has been twisted as a result.

    Who would you say has made the greatest contribution to human welfare in the world in the last half century? Was it Hillary Clinton? Rachel Carson? Bill Gates? A stronger case can be made for Professor Norman Borlaug, the scientist who started and spread the Green Revolution across the world: food plants that are well-adapted to Third World conditions. Professor Borlaug won a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts, but sweeter than that must be the hundreds of millions of lives he has saved. Children in India whose parents suffered from repeated famines are growing up today with plenty of protein and vitamins in their diets. They are healthier, taller, and better able to learn, and therefore to educate themselves. India's take-off as an economic power is in important measure due to the Green Revolution. All because of some comparatively unknown guy at Texas A&M.

    Mass killers make up the most famous names in history: Attila the Hun, Caligula, Hitler, Napoleon. But few of the famous can claim to have saved lives. Perhaps Louis Pasteur, and of course many unknown scientists and inventors in medicine, agriculture and engineering. But who is celebrated by the Media Mob? Paris Hilton. Dan Rather. Hillary Clinton. The next Democrat for president. None of them have real achievements to their credit. None of them come within miles of Norman Borlaug.

    The Big Media just aren't interested in stories of profound human significance. Life-saving scientists are boring, and besides, don't we have too many people walking on the planet already? That's the vaunted "editorial judgment." It reflects the snobbish values of the vulgar Media Mob, and it's utterly subjective and selfish. Mobs don't think. They just hyperventilate at pseudo-scientific superstitions, like Global Warming.

    Our country used to have an intellectually varied media. The differences between Alexander Hamilton and Tom Paine are as basic as the difference between Rolling Stone and the Wall Street Journal, and those views were argued out in articulate, printed articles. The US was founded by the most extraordinary intellectual elite we have seen -- Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, Washington, Paine, Franklin. They were largely self-taught, and delighted in vigorous political debate. Even when Jacksonian Democracy took over fifty years later, a rich tradition of political debate continued, in good part because thousands of small-town newspapers populated the United States. And many Americans seriously read the great works of Western civilization: Gibbon, Shakespeare, the Bible, the Federalist papers, novels, literate journalism.

    There was no centralized intellectual monopoly. Political arguments were often heated, with news sheets flaming each other like the best of the blogs. The newspapers produced geniuses like Mark Twain and H.L. Mencken, both self-taught news writers. Twain may be the foremost American novelist of the 19th century, and Mencken is one of the greatest essayists in the English language. That was before anybody had a degree in journalism.

    Things have not improved. The decline of quality media in America can be traced to two things, (1) professionalization of the news business, and (2) a former technological monopoly in electronic and print media. With industrialized technology it became possible for a single ideology to exercise control. Colleges were accredited by bureaucracies, which enforced liberal uniformity where diversity used to flourish. Journalists became careerists, like teachers and other bureaucrats.

    Intellectual monopolies can be justified in medicine or sanitary engineering. You can really prove that doctors should wash their hands before touching the patient. Plumbers need to separate the water supply from human wastes. People end up dying if you don't to that; it's a point of fact.

    But journalism doesn't thrive on a forced consensus. News conformity is always artificial, a matter of ideological indoctrination, not fact. Indeed, the average newswriter today is a shallow and gullible BA in English, with no knowledge of (or interest in) science, technology, history, economics, international affairs, or politics, nor any practical experience of real human nature. That is why we now have just one single national story line, repeated hundreds of times a day in all the major dailies. It is mental Coca Cola --without the nourishment sugar provides.

    It's all very effective; with a more truthful media the Democrats wouldn't stand a chance in electoral politics. The entire American Left owes its existence and power to the Media Mob. And our national dialogue would be saner, better-informed, and more rational. We would have a much healthier world. Until then, a vigorous New Media provide our best hope.

    Great.... more MSM censorship. ROP must not be offended..

    Opus The Infidel Penguin

    The unofficial state religion may not be offended or mocked. Berke Breathed, creator of Bloom County and Opus, dared to take on Islam and lost.

    Note to Opus readers: The Opus strips for August 26 and September 2 have been withheld from publication by a large number of client newspapers across the country, including Opus' host paper The Washington Post.
    You can see the heresy here.

    Remember…the MSM are the deciders of what’s fair and what’s not.

    Hat Tip: Milblogs

    Apparently Breathed's site is getting slammed. You can see the cartoon panel here.

    A New Low: MSM Gets All Dhimmi-toonish

    Sad doesn't come close to being the appropriate word to characterize the behavior of our allegedly freedom loving media this time out. It seems it doesn't need a Muslim government, or sharia law to cause it to cower in the face of any potential threat from radical Islamists.
    Note to Opus readers: The Opus strips for August 26 and September 2 have been withheld from publication by a large number of client newspapers across the country, including Opus' host paper The Washington Post. The strips may be viewed in a large format on their respective dates at Salon.com.
    The strip can be viewed here. Mainstream media journalism today is a pathetic caricature of what it was once considered to be. This latest disgusting and cowardly move simply pulls back the slimy cover from the corporations and ultimately the editors behind the scenes that make it so.
    Dhimmitude
    Dhimmi (also zimmi, Arabic ذمي, often translated as "protected") is a legal status of a non-Muslim subject of a state governed in accordance with sharia — Islamic law.

    Iraqis Reach Accomodation - US Press Misses Story

    Iraqis Reach Accomodation - US Press Misses Story
    By Richard Newcomb | August 27, 2007 - 12:04 ET

    Has the US media turned a completely deaf ear to actual events in favor of a warped view on what they wish to occur in Iraq? It would seem so. Ever since it became apparent that the miltiary 'surge' strategy was succeeding in Iraq, both the media and the Democratic Party have been complaining that the poltiical benchmarks in Iraq were not being met. in particular, they castigated the Iraq civilian leadership for failing to make strides in rteaching out to the minority Sunnis and releasing political prisoners.

    However, it was announced over the weekend that Iraqi leaders had reached agreement on releasing thousands of political prisoners. They also agreed to reform the law keeping many ex-Baathists out of government jobs. Since this agreement was one of the main points that the media and the Democrats in Congress have been complaining about, one would think that this news justified inclusion on the front page of American news outlets, wouldn't one? And one would be wrong.

    The Washington Post chose to put the news on Page A9. However, they did better than the New York Times, which as of this morning had no mention of the event at all. As reported by Captain Ed Morrissey over at Captain's Quarters, even the United Kingdom's BBC and the Guardian managed to report the event, and neither of these media outlets is any friend either to the United States nor to the campaign in Iraq.

    The United States media should be ashamed of themselves, both for failing to report on (or trying to bury) an event that they have long been calling for and for their stubborn refusal to report anything that might make the Democrats' desire to drag the United States to defeat in the war against Islamic terror more difficult. that the anti-war, anti-American BBC and Guardian managed to report on it should make the American media even more embarrassed. This raises the question- does the US media care more for helping the United States win in Iraq, no matter who is President, or are they more interested in a Democratic victory in November 2008? based on thier performance so far, one would be justified in suspecting the latter.

    Hat tip to Captain's Quarters.

    Re: No MSM bias to see here... move along..

    Only in the BDS infected world of the MSM can 3% unemployment be considered a "problem".

    Help Wanted Ads Go Unanswered in West

    The region hit an all-time low of 3.4 percent in May. The effects are everywhere. Logging equipment in Idaho sits idle as companies have a tough time finding workers. A shortage of lifeguards has forced Helena to shorten hours at children-only pools. A local paper in Jackson, Wyo., has page after page of help wanted ads....

    The problem has created longer hours and tougher working conditions for current employees....

    The problem could get worse as more baby boomers retire....

    But questions remain about how long the West can weather the problems that come with low unemployment.
    Could get worse... unemployment could dip into the 2%... the horror..
