Will Joe Biden Be a Rerun of 2016 Tragedy? Either Warren or Sanders would fare better against Trump than a candidate like Biden, who is easily tied to moneyed elites and a blatantly unfair status quo. We've seen that movie before and it ended in the 2016 disaster.

Let's Not Restore or Mythologize Obama With former Vice President Joe Biden seemingly ready to join the presidential race, a Washington Post reporter wrote: "Biden and his allies picture an election that poses a choice between four more years of Trump disruption and a chance to restore the Obama administration." Ah, the hope of an Obama restoration!

This Jew Tells Speaker Pelosi: "You May Well Prove Ilhan Omar correct." Speaker Nancy Pelosi's symbolic "show vote" in Congress on an anti-Semitism and "hate" resolution which offers all the authenticity and honesty of a Soviet show trial proves Rep. Ilhan Omar's point about the inordinate influence wielded over Congress by the "Israel-right or-wrong"/AIPAC lobby and its power to stifle criticism of Israel.

Mainstream Media Bias on 2020 Democratic Race Already in High Gear Although the Democratic race for president has barely launched, mainstream media bias is already in orbit.

Few Democrats Offer Alternatives to War-Weary Voters While Trump's 2016 victories in swing states may well have been aided by his posing as a foe of protracted war, his administration's Mideast policies have largely exposed that masquerade. Unfortunately, the weak and confused positions of Democratic leaders on endless war and bloated military spending offer little alternative to war-weary voters.

Democrats Gather in Chicago: Elite Party or Party of the People? Despite being led by one of the most erratic & least popular presidents in modern history, the Republican Party dominates U.S. politics. One of the main reasons for this awful state of affairs is that the opposition party -- which calls itself "Democratic" -- is led by vacillating, corporate-oriented politicians who seem to have one firm principle: that the party's progressive base must be repeatedly insulted, repressed...

Where Are All the U.S. Oligarchs With Links to Washington? As Comcast's CEO, Roberts is the ultimate boss of those allegedly progressive hosts on MSNBC. Which may help to explain their silence about U.S. oligarchs, since it would be difficult to bring up the topic without mentioning their boss.

A Steady Diet of War Hawks, Spies and Liars When the "War on Terror" was launched in 2001, mainstream media -- especially cable TV news -- started a parade. It was a narrow parade of hawkish retired military and intelligence brass promoting war as the response to the crime of 9/11, predicting success and identifying foreign enemies to attack.

Same Old Media Parade: Why Are Liberals Cheering? Not all foes of Trump are allies of progressives -- especially the hawks, spooks and perjurers who parade across CNN and MSNBC every day, Jeff Cohen reminds us.

TV Networks Should Open Up the Presidential Debates If 10 TV networks got together and decided to nationally televise a presidential debate restricted to Donald Trump and Gary Johnson, while barring other candidates including Democrat Hillary Clinton, it would be recognized as an act of media bias or exclusion. But what if the televised debates this fall are restricted to just Trump and Clinton? That, too, needs to be recognizeds as an intentional act of media exclusion

Memo to Media: Ask Trump If He's a 'Serial Racist' It's easy to laugh off Donald Trump's fact-free comments about Mexican immigrants being rapists. And easy to poke fun, as Jon Stewart did, at Trump's grudging admission that some Mexican immigrants might be "good people." But there is a serious issue here, and mainstream media interviewers have neglected to ask Trump about it -- and that's Trump's history of pointing the finger of rape at innocent men of color.

The Resurrection of Gary Webb: Will Hollywood Give Journalist Last Word Against CIA's Media Apologists? The assault by the Washington Post, New York Times and Los Angeles Times drove Webb out of the newspaper business, and ultimately to his death. Beginning this Friday, the ghost of Gary Webb will haunt his tormenters from movie screens across the country, with the opening of the dramatic film "Kill the Messenger" -- based partly on Webb's 1998 "Dark Alliance" book.

Hillary's Candid Motto for Democratic Party: "Represent Banks" In 1992, a 44-year-old attorney made the following assertion: "For goodness' sake, you can't be a lawyer if you don't represent banks." The attorney was Hillary Clinton. She made the statement to journalists during her husband's first campaign for president. Her legal representation of a shady savings and loan bank while working at a top corporate law firm in Arkansas had erupted briefly into a campaign controversy

Noam Chomsky Continues to Inspire An odd aspect of modern American life is that even with 24-hour news and its roster of blathering pundits, many creative thinkers with valuable insights are blacklisted from mainstream media, perhaps most notably Noam Chomsky who turned 85 on Dec. 7.

How Do You Know When President Obama is Lying? MSNBC Won't Tell You With Obama in power, MSNBC talking heads reacted to the Snowden disclosures like Fox News hosts did when they were in hysterical damage control mode for Bush--with ridiculously fact-free claims and national chauvinism that we've come to expect from the "fair and balanced" channel. We need strong, independent media not enmeshed with the corporate/political power structure and not allied with one of the two corporate parties.

Snowden Coverage: If U.S. Mass Media Were State-Controlled, Would They Look Any Different? The Edward Snowden leaks have revealed a U.S. corporate media system at war with independent journalism. Many of the same outlets -- especially TV news -- that missed the Wall Street meltdown and cheer-led the Iraq invasion have come to resemble state-controlled media outlets in their near-total identification with the government as it pursues the now 30-year-old whistleblower.

Trust me: Political Spying + Computers = Big Brother I know the issue of political spying -- and not just because my lawful, nonviolent activism got me spied on by local, state and federal "intelligence" agencies (whose spy files on me were unearthed through successful lawsuits and partly successful Freedom of Information requests). I also spent a dozen years as a journalist, researcher and ACLU lawyer investigating the spies.
