Could the Worldwide Media Help Stop Terrorists?

Here's an idea.  How about if ALL the world's largest media entities simply stopped publishing any pictures or video of terrorists.  No YouTube, no Facebook, no Twitter, NO PICTURES OF ANY KIND.  They would still publish stories, but no pictures would show Islamic Butchers beheading journalists, blowing up mosques, or shooting their machine guns from …

How About Some Facts About the Ferguson Situation

It seems to me that the majority of media and bloggers have been operating from a position of immediately jumping to conclusions, based on inaccurate and biased information.  The standard narrative has been "a white cop shot and killed an unarmed black teenager".  Unspoken are the assumptions: That the cop shot the teenager without provocation …

Let’s Talk Anti-Semitism

Always and everywhere, Liberals and groups like Acorn, claim that they support and work for the little guys, the downtrodden, the discriminated-against, the oppressed, the have-nots of society.  But when it comes right down to it, in the crunch, they favor themselves, and their white liberal cronies in big labor unions and politics, and their …
