Can We Make Networks Give Us News, Not Infotainment?

The Big 5 Sunday “News” shows feature bloviating (white) men in suits on the hosting and guesting side, telling us what we should value and where the next ‘crisis’ is coming from – perhaps this is the media equivalent of “Look over there, squirrel!” Radio host and Epic Times’ founder Jerry Doyle states, “They’re just working you to keep you clicking on the next circus.”...

Who Is More Dangerous: Trump or the Media?

Acknowledging that unlikely Republican front-runner Donald Trump has hit a nerve with a notable segment of his Party, there is little doubt that his xenophobic comments are, among other things, a cynical headline grab that gets him tons of free air time. But who is the bad guy here? The man making these statements or a corporate owned media, so starved for ratings, it will...

Media Complicity in Donald Trump, Demagogue-in-Chief

Mainstream media helped create, feed, and cynically fed on, the creature that is Donald Trump, but have now decided he has gone too far with his latest xenophobic statement that there be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” Their complaints are as cynical as his candidacy. Leaving aside that his comment is a likely ISIS recruiting tool, Donald Trump is...

Is Starbucks Really the Company We Should Be Boycotting?

The brouhaha surrounding Starbucks stark red and allegedly non Christmas-y coffee cup has caused such an uproar that even Republican front runner Donald Trump jumped into the fray. He calling for a Starbucks boycott even though one such venue resides in Trump Tower. “We’re sure gonna be saying “Merry Christmas” all the time if I’m elected” puffed the publicity hungry candidate. But Starbucks’ veteran friendly...

Hillary Surges in the Polls, Shining Past Media Bias and Politicized Attacks

In the days since House Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy bragged to FOX’s Sean Hannity the real reason for the Republican driven Benghazi investigative committee – to drive down Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers – McCarthy has unsuccessfully attempted to walk back his “inartful” statements. His irrational Hillary-hate coupled with Republicans’ abject terror of running against the accomplished Clinton compelled his boast in the first...

Big Media Ignores Concerns of Average Americans to Obsess about Hillary’s Emails

A new article from Tom Watson and Peter Daou shares the poignant struggles of average Americans who care much less about the manufactured media stink over Hillary Clinton’s emails than they care what she and other presidential candidates will do to lead this country. Here’s a quote: “My wife lost her job with a non-profit last month when their grant funding dried up. I bust...

The Truth of Hillary’s Email Non-Scandal

Hillary Clinton is running an intelligent presidential campaign focused on voters’ pressing concerns. Her plans for reining in Wall Street, reducing cost of college education and child care, criminal justice and immigration reform, gun control, and equal pay for women deserve close examination. Yet we are distracted from the issues Clinton and other candidates raise by a corporate owned media that, just as in 2008,...

Can Any Candidate Compete with Trump’s Pwning of a Desperate News Media?

There is speculation that billionaire Donald Trump is running a campaign for reasons other than attaining the Presidency; that he would never let his empire deteriorate while constrained by the demands of the Oval Office. Whatever his motives, Trump’s shocking frontrunner status means a desperate media will chase him for all the outrageous or grotesque sound bites he can spew. At the moment, the press...

The New York Times Owes a Front Page Apology to Hillary Clinton

Yesterday, The New York Times’ public editor offered a harsh “note” on her paper’s botched, false story about two Inspectors General pursuing a criminal investigation against Hillary Clinton for “mishandling sensitive information in her emails.” Though Ms. Sullivan referred to the incident as a “mess” that “rippled through the entire news system”, her note was not unlike scientists making observations of Petri dish specimens to...

What’s The New York Times’ Gripe with Hillary Clinton?

Talking with Ed Berliner on Newsmax’s The Hard Line, I suggested one might want to learn the identity of The New York Times’ major shareholder. “There is definitely an agenda when it comes to Hillary,” I said.  I cannot tell you what is in the hearts and minds of the owners or editorial staff, but as my recent article, The New York Times’ Vendetta Against...
