    If this was an ISIS propaganda video, the American government would be exploiting it to the hilt in every mainstream media outlet across the country .. but when a Western ally kills an American journalist for uncovering ties between that ally and ISIS .. crickets. it has been a year and we still do not know what happened to journalist for Press TV Serena Shim, apparently murdered for exposing the Turkish government's assistance of ISIS. The US government, hilariously, has stood silent and done nothing, actually pretending it does not investigate the murder of American citizens abroad ... Interesting how...

The scandal erupted from a 60 Minutes Wednesday segment rushed to air on the evening of September 8, 2004, in time to influence the approaching presidential election pitting George W. Bush against John Kerry, as it was clearly intended to do. The segment consisted of two parts that didnt quite fit together except in their antipathy to Bush. In the first part, based on an interview with the vice chairman of Kerrys national finance committee, Dan Rather essentially claimed that political influence had been brought...

The hard-working employees and patient owners of The Washington Times have waited for this day for a long time, President and CEO Larry Beasley said after surprising his staff Wednesday afternoon with an impromptu champagne celebration in the company ballroom.

Mercer reportedly singled out Christians for death by asking the religion of potential victims before firing on them. Mercer was then shot and killed by law enforcement. In a series of tweets on October 2, Woods argued that because the victims were Christian, both resident Obama and the media would lose interest in the story.

Yet we still havent seen the full document. ABC hasnt made it available. Why? John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagans crimes very differently from Dylann Roofs. Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated. But youd never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial...

Pew said the companies spun off the money-losing properties "in large part to protect their still-robust broadcast or digital divisions."

    Many historians call the Armenian Holocaust the first holocaust of the 20th Century, a dress rehearsal for the Nazi nightmare that followed. This April 24 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of roughly 1.5 million Armenian Christians at the hands of Turkish Muslims. That mass slaughter has gone virtually unreported by the broadcast networks. It was a genocide so awful that candidate Barack Obama promised in 2008 he would acknowledge it as such. As president, I will recognize the Armenian genocide, he vowed. Obama has violated that promise every year since. This will be the seventh anniversary that Obama...

Republicans handled it for four years while Democrats failed to perform the basic function of legislating, but somehow that didnt get seen as cataclysmic for them at Politico.

    How many nine-year-old Antonio's need to die in Chicago before the national media will park its satellite trucks in front of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's City Hall and demand answers and action. How many black people, including black children, need to die in Chicago before the national media stops counting civilian casualties in Gaza as a political weapon against Israel and starts counting them in one of our own cities. Overnight in Chicago 10 people were shot. One night. One. How many more until the national media cares enough to look into the root causes of the violence, poverty, despair, terrible...

    And why reporters wont talk about it. The idea that one of Hamas main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war. So why arent reporters in Gaza ferreting it out? The precise location of a large underground bunker equipped with sophisticated communications equipment and housing some part of the leadership of a major terrorist organization beneath a major hospital would seem to qualify as a world-class scoopthe kind that might merit a Pulitzer, or at least a Polk. So why isnt the fact that Hamas uses Shifa...

    A newspaper editor was fired after comparing gays to Nazis. Now he claims his First Amendment rights to write stupid things were violated.In April, the goateed editor of the Jasper County, Iowa Newton Daily News, Bob Eschliman, took to his personal blog to talk about Jesus and compare homosexuals to the Gestapo, as one does. When he was then fired, he felt as though he was under attack for his personal choice to live as he pleases according to his interpretation of the Bible and presumably saw no irony in that whatsoever. His incendiary post was promptly deleted...

    On Thursday, with PJ Media's J. Christian Adams as her guest, Fox News's Megyn Kelly recited a list of assertions (under oath, she reminded us) made by Internal Revenue Service officials which have later been shown to be lies or cause for agency flip-flops after "new" facts have been revealed. It's a significant list. By implication, it's an indictment of the vast majority of the establishment press, which has refused to give the IRS scandal the attention it deserves. Video and a transcript follow the jump. ... The establishment press has been almost completely uninterested in telling their readers, listeners,...

    Both ABC World News with Diane Sawyer and NBC Nightly News failed to mention a new, troubling report from the Census Bureau on Thursday night that sales of new homes decreased by 8.1% in June and that Mays originally reported double-digit increase was revised lower, from almost 19% to only 8%. The CBS Evening News did cover this story, but it only was in the form of a 12-second news brief from anchor Scott Pelley. Pelley grimly reported that: Today's report on the housing market is raising concerns about the economic recovery. Sales of new homes dropped sharply last month,...

    In what appears to be an act of leftist self-defense, an unbylined story at the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, describes certain Colorado Democratic politicians' crticisms of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg over recent "off-base remarks about two of its cities," but noted no reactions from Republicans who are genuinely outraged, as opposed to arguably trying to cover their political tracks. ... Bloomberg told Simon Vozick-Levinson that in recent recall elections in the Centennial State, "The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don't think there's roads. It's...

    Various statements and events defy the claim of a universal consensus on harmful climate change. Have you noticed that the nature of the crisis du jour may change, but the solutions always involve higher taxes and more power for the political class? ... Theres a reason some global warming enthusiasts demand that the media refuse to print or broadcast skeptical views. Polls show Americans continually rank climate change near the bottom of lists of important issues. Apparently, global warming is harmful because shut up is the only argument many activists have left. And theres a reason the Environmental Protection Agency...
