The Twilight of Objectivity – Kinsley On News Media

March 31, 2006
By

Slate founding editor Michael Kinsley offers up a thought provoking piece on objectivity in media today.

Objectivity—the faith professed by American journalism and by its critics—is less an ideal than a conceit. It’s not that all journalists are secretly biased, or even that perfect objectivity is an admirable but unachievable goal. In...

A site uploaded screen captures from Fox News which showed portions alleged to be the FBI transcripts of the interrogations of two girls – Katherine Madison Whatley and Lee Broughton. Using magnification, I’ve tried to translate as much of the documents as possible.

Bush Update

March 30, 2006
By

I just wanted to clarify something on my previous post. I wasn’t suggesting Mexicans couldn’t still immigrate, only it would be in controlled numbers according to need. Secondly, regarding Cheney – I wasn’t suggesting he run in 08. But if Bush were to be impeached, Cheney would move to President....

Bailing On Bush

March 30, 2006

Anyone who reads here knows I have been as strong a supporter of President Bush as nearly anyone else. And I’m certainly not going to stop supporting the Iraq War, the GWOT, or stop defending the sitting Republican administration against undeserved attacks from the Left.

Grow, or go?

On an emotional level it is difficult not to sympathize with the President’s understanding of the largely Hispanic population who are keen to embrace a better life, and earn $50 rather than 50c. However, whatever the bigger picture, one core problem for the US economy is of course the...

It appears a radical islamist has figured out a new way to try and silence a free press.

Earlier this month, the Western Standard was sued in human rights court for publishing the Danish cartoons. It’s been ten years since I’ve graduated from law school, and I’ve never seen a more frivolous,...
