    Joining CAMERA's letter-writing campaigns is an active way to fight media anti-Israel and anti-Semitic bias. CAMERA is the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America. Below is their 2013 list of the worst instances of anti-Israel media bias. 1.

    CNBC ^ | 6-25-13 | Mark Koba
    Manufacturing jobs in the U.S. appear to be coming back—if ever so slightly. Several American firms, including Caterpillar, GE and Ford, have announced they're shifting some manufacturing operations back to the United States, mainly because of increasing production and energy costs overseas. And since January of 2010, the United States has added 520,000 manufacturing jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are currently 12 million manufacturing jobs on record in the United States. But the U.S. is clearly in catch-up mode.

    (Newser) – The new Nielsen/E-Poll survey of the most disliked athletes in America has the not-so-surprising name of Lance Armstrong at the top of the list, reports Forbes. More surprising is that Notre Dame star and soon-to-be-NFL'er Manti Te'o tied Armstrong with a measly 15% approval rating. Even if he was a hoax victim, Teo's fake girlfriend saga has taken a toll on his image. Worst three: After Armstrong and Te'o comes Tiger Woods, with a 19% appeal rating.

    The Huffington Post, ever eager to curry favor with anti-American pundits and racists posing as free-thinkers, has published a screed by Marc Lamont Hill, who is a black professor at Georgetown University, titled “The 15 Most Overrated White People.” Keep in mind that this is a man who not only praised convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, but published Jamal’s writings, and also was accused of supporting Fidel Castro and Khalid Muhammed.

These scores are based on 20 separate votes that were taken by the U.S. Senate in 2011. A score of 0.00 indicates that the senator voted against the conservative position in each of these 20 votes (in a few instances, the senator did not cast a vote).

    Chick-fil-A took a stand on gay marriage this week—a trend that may be due to pressure from gay right's advocates. Pressure from gay right’s advocates may have led the top official fast-food chain Chick-fil-A—which has a location in Murrieta—to take a public position on same-sex marriage. This week Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said his privately-owned company is against gay unions. Chad Griffin, president of the gay right’s non-profit Human Rights Campaign, said in a released statement Thursday that Chick-fil-A "has finally come clean" after hiding in the closet. “Chick-fil-A is headed by a man who is proud of his company’s...

    http://internet-haganah.com/harchives/007413.html "Whither the jihadi forums?" SNIPPET: "There are currently only three jihadi forums that are sufficiently active and well-connected to be of any interest whatsoever. Why we claim to be on the verge of defeating al-Qaida while simultaneously watching passively as they use these forums to regroup and regenerate is beyond me. These are the forums three: • al-Fidaa, a forum created by al-Qaida core. That it is directly linked to al-Qaida by definition moves it to the top of the list. Current membership: 2,462, all of whom can be considered "active" if only because they just joined the forum....

Here’s the story, in short: It’s a Toyota Corolla with a different nameplate, and everyone knows Corollas last forever. 8)Subaru Wagons(All of Them) 1990-Present If all of these failed to start tomorrow, thousands of college professors in the Northeast and Pacific Northwest would have to walk to class. 7)Volvos (Rear-Wheel-Drive Ones)Dawn of Man-1996 To some extent, these are the Subaru wagons’ spiritual and actual predecessors. Volvo's secret? It basically built one car for 25 years under a variety of nameplates. 6)Ford Crown Victoria/Mercury Marquis 1992 - 2011 If these can...

    Excerpt only site: Cities like New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles may be some of the most popular and exciting cities in the U.S., but they also happen to be the dirtiest. A list of the most filthiest cities in America has been compiled by Travel and Leisure magazine. Most of the places that made the top ten were some of the most popular in all of the country, perhaps something to do with the number of tourists who frequent there or the street parties and events that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

    The profane and hysterical "The Book of Mormon" took home nine Tony Awards on Sunday including the prize for best musical, a considerable achievement for a pair of first-time Broadway playwrights known more for their raunchy cartoons featuring potty-mouthed kids. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the Emmy Award-winning "South Park," found a kindred soul in Robert Lopez, who co-wrote the Tony-winning "Avenue Q," and all three found themselves with plenty of awards when they collaborated to gently mock Mormons and send-up Broadway itself. Collecting the best musical prize, a subdued Parker, who tied Josh Logan of "South Pacific"...

    The latest ComScore results from the last quarter are in, and the US mobile device wars were hotter than ever as 13% more people reported owning a smartphone. Google conquered most users' territory with Android climbing just over five percent (now totaling 36.4%) and still claiming first for mobile software platforms. Apple's iOS destroyer took second place (at 26%) partially due to RIM's S.S. BlackBerry OS sinking about five percent (now 25.7%) to claim third, while Microsoft and HP / Palm rounded out the bunch struggling to stay in the fight with even lower single-digit scores. In the OEM region...

    SNIPPET: "Note: PWP stands for PassWord-Protected, meaning that a login is required to view - let alone participate in - discussions. Since some in the audience don't understand the significance of this, allow me to spell it out: if only members can read the forum, then anyone observed reading the forum is a member. They have zero deniability (they couldn't have accidentally "wandered into" the site), and they had to make the effort to join (an expression of intent). While the goal here is to present a range of sites, the fact is that the jihadis themselves have largely coalesced...
