    NY Post ^ | 04/10/2023 | By Steven Nelson
    White House spokesman John Kirby urged reporters Monday to play down leaks of classified records pertaining to Ukraine, Israel, South Korea and other countries... Kirby said at the White House briefing that some of the documents, which indicate US surveillance of close allies, are “doctored” — without specifying which ones. He also claimed others might contain real but sensitive information unsuitable for publication on the “front pages of newspapers or on television.” The documents also mention Zelensky’s interest in launching military attacks inside Russia, which the documents said could be used by China as a pretext to arm Moscow. In...
  • Feds to make a ruling over politicking on the Web

    A political action committee is looking to figure out whether it can safely use the Internet to support national political candidates, or whether the Federal Election Commission might seize the opportunity to impose the kind of regulations Democrats have been striving to attain. The request for an advisory opinion, filed on behalf of Citizen Super PAC, asks the FEC whether it would be permissible to email supporters of a candidate's campaign, or whether that would cross a line prohibiting coordination with candidates.

    Junk Science: Senate Democrats want TV networks to promote climate-change hysteria and follow the lead of Britain's state broadcasting company, which sent its top executives to a green propaganda training seminar. The mainstream media, long a house organ for Democrats, are about to come under pressure by Senate Democrats led by Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, who are gathering signatures from colleagues on a letter to the networks telling them they're ignoring global warming, according to a report in the National Journal. They are seeking to impose sort of a climate change "fairness doctrine" designed to ignore...

    Free Press: The president of Columbia University, home of the nation's most prestigious journalism school, has an idea to counter the decline of the mainstream press: more state-controlled media. We aren't making this up. In a 3,811-word screed published in this month's Columbia Journalism Review, Lee Bollinger proposes that the U.S. fund an "American World Service." This would ostensibly be modeled on news agencies such as the BBC World Service and, we kid you not, Xinhua News Service and Al-Jazeera. Why? Because they're all state-controlled media with a global reach, which he sees as the wave of the future. "Global...

    Sarah Palin's new book "Going Rogue" is set for release on Nov. 17 and with that will likely come a media blitz of epic proportions.

The wizards of smart at Newsweek took an image from a shoot of Palin that originally appeared in Runner's World magazine for the cover and splashed the headlines, "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Sarah?" and "She's Bad News for the GOP - and For Everybody Else, Too." ...more (with bare-legged Palin cover)...
