**Posted by Phineas A few weeks ago, I mentioned CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s strong suspicions that her home and work computers had been accessed by unknown persons. Coming in the wake of revelations about the government’s seizure of phone records for journalists and editors at the Associated Press and a secret warrant for phone records and email belonging to Fox reporter […]

Media Bias Quote of the Week – Politico Edition

Posted by: ST on May 31, 2013 at 7:21 pm » 6 Comments

A great catch, courtesy of Paul Bremmer at Newsbusters (bolded emphasis added by me) : Politico co-founder Jim VandeHei showed up on PBS’s Charlie Rose Wednesday night, and from the comfort of Rose’s pitch-black studio he tossed aside his journalistic objectivity and aired out his own political opinions – particularly his disdain for Republicans. Rose had asked his […]

DOJ targeted Fox News’ James Rosen as a “co-conspirator” in another leak case

Posted by: ST on May 21, 2013 at 10:12 am » 4 Comments

Turns out, it wasn’t just the Associated Press the DOJ went after, but the administration’s least favorite network Fox News – specifically, James Rosen - for a different “leak” case (bolded emphasis added by me): A Fox News correspondent was accused in a Justice Department affidavit of being a possible criminal “co-conspirator” for his alleged role […]


Where is the national media on the horrific Kermit Gosnell case?

Posted by: ST on April 11, 2013 at 10:22 am » 4 Comments

The under-reporting of this story by the national mainstream media is cause for both alarm and outrage.  You’d think the sheer volume of accusations and candid, shocking testimony was just too big to ignore – but they’ve managed to largely do just that.  Connor Adams Sheets writes in the IB Times: Dr. Kermit Gosnell faces […]
