I’ve been waiting for political satirist Bill Maher to comment on Global Warming since the Climate-Gate scandal broke a few weeks before the Copenhagen Summit. For those of you who missed this story, thousands of emails from the leading scientists whose research provides the foundation for the Global Warming theory – also referred to as “Climate Change” – were retrieved by a hacker and subsequently posted to the internet. The emails revealed, among other game changing developments, that global temperature data had been manipulated, or outright fabricated, in order to fit the anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming theory most commonly associated with the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit.

AP - Lawrence O'donnell, frequent contributer on MSNBC

 

The August 7, 2009 episode of MSNBC’s the ED show, in which Lawrence O’Donnell guest hosts and interviews Euro Pacific Capital CEO and free market economist Peter Schiff, is as shameless a display of a program host perpetually interrupting a guest as I have seen since…Chris Matthews interviewing ANYONE who disagrees with increased government involvement in the health insurance industry.

clinton-with-kim-jong-il

I get annoyed every time I hear a network news anchor refer to N. Korea as a “rogue nation.” It makes me wonder, “do they have any idea where they live?” You would think that people who make a living reporting the news might actually read it every now and again.

Kim Jong-il, the dictator of this so-called rogue nation, granted amnesty to the American journalists convicted of illegally entering into N. Korea while investigating human trafficking. They were detained by the N. Korean government for a total of 40 days.

Whether network news anchors sided with or against Prof. Henry Louis Gates regarding the controversial events which led to the renowned Harvard Professor’s arrest at his home on July 16, 2009, a majority neglected to discuss in any depth the legality of this arrest.

Network news programming chose instead to focus on whether the incident was racially motivated, tapping into the inherent tribalism which pervades American culture.

My Advice To The Networks

Posted by: J. Edward Nelson | Comments (3)

revolutionary-guard-attack-iranian-protesters-ncr-iran-org 

There is strong evidence to support a claim that mainstream American media turns a blind eye to human rights violations committed by U.S. Allies. The civil unrest and subsequent violence in Iran, a country that has long had strained relations with our government, has received extensive network coverage here in the U.S. I find it puzzling that similar incidents in the Middle East, in places like Gaza and the West Bank, do not garner similar exposure on network television.
