The Washington Post's "Worthless and Whiny" Attack on Genuine Journalistic Hero Gary Webb Since the release of the film "Kill the Messenger," there has been renewed focus on Gary Webb's story, which documented how CIA-linked drug traffickers were supplying US drug dealers with cheap cocaine that helped fuel the crack epidemic in the 1980s. For the Post, this means it's time to argue once again that Webb got the story wrong.

The Media's New Climate Denial Sensible people know there's no more arguing about climate change: The planet is warming due to human activity. The only important question now is whether we plan to do anything about it. It will require, among other things, a massive shift away from burning oil, gas, and coal.

Washington Post Editorial Page, Meet Noam Chomsky Chomsky's point is that Western elites carve out an obvious exception for themselves -- they deem their own countries "to be uniquely exempt from the principle of universality." The crimes of enemies take place; our own do not, by virtue of our exemption from the most elementary of moral truisms."

NYT Rewrites Gaza Headline: Was It Too Accurate? There's a television equivalent to a headline -- the information an anchor provides to introduce a piece. The NBC Nightly News last night (7/16/14) led with Gaza, and the segment by Richard Engel was vivid and powerful. But anchor Brian Williams' introduction included this comment: "When Hamas launches rockets from Gaza, Israel hits back."

Debating Iraq in 2014: Wrong All Over Again The crisis in Iraq has brought war back to the US airwaves. But if you were expecting a more robust discussion about US military action this time around, think again. The rule seems to be that if you were wrong in 2003, you're still an expert in 2014. One wouldn't keep trusting a meteorologist who got the weather forecast horribly wrong. Why do news shows treat matters of war any differently?

Brian Williams Frantically Tries to Prove He's No Glenn Greenwald NBC News was able to snag an exclusive interview with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. They turned it into a one-hour primetime special. But before it aired, NBC Nightly News delivered a lengthy segment making the case against Snowden -- almost as if the network needed to establish that it certainly wasn't taking his side.

FBI chief hits China for spying Thursday, May 22, 2014      Share on Google Plus Submit to Twitter Add this Page to Facebook! Share on LinkedIn Pin It! Add this Page to Fark! Submit to Reddit Submit to Stumble Upon
American TV to Chinese Spies: Do as US Says, Not as US Does Early this week, the FBI announced that five Chinese hackers had been indicted for spying on American companies. That's right, economic espionage. The newscasts spent so much time loading up on hyperbole and jingoism that there was evidently no way to note that the US government is accusing China of doing something that closely resembles US actions.

When the State Attacks Journalism The stories described here, taken together, represent a direct attack on news gathering. This should outrage every single journalist, and anyone who believes in freedom of expression.

Was George W. Bush Aiding Al-Qaeda? If the killing of civilians might rally people behind the cause of Al-Qaeda -- then shouldn't someone be talking to George W. Bush about ordering the invasion that caused all the killing? Of course not -- the only person facing punishment is the person who thought the rest of the world should know about it.

Hugo Chavez: Why Does He Hate Us? f there's one thing media want you to know about Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, it's that he doesn't like the United States. While it's hard to say Chavez has made a "career" out of U.S.-bashing--he does have, after all, a full-time job as president of Venezuela--you, too, might be excused for harboring some hard feelings towards a government that helped to try to overthrow your own.
