CBS News reports, "One of al Qaeda's top chemical and biological weapons experts was killed in an air strike by a CIA pilotless drone in a remote Pakistani border region."

Unfortunately two years ago ABC also reported Abu Khabab al-Masri was killed in Pakistan.

Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich announced that his impeachment resolution against President George W. Bush will be heard before the House Judiciary Committee on Friday.

He's asking that everyone petition the mainstream media to COVER THIS HISTORICAL EVENT - we need your help! - contact names, numbers and e-mail addresses are here.

"I want to thank you for the support which you have given to my efforts to hold this administration accountable for taking us into a war based on lies, and for the destruction of the rule of law and the destruction of cherished Constitutional principles," Kucinich said.

He will make the case, he continued, that the President has violated his oath of office, violated U.S. and international law, has separated our nation from our Constitution, and has threatened the democratic core of our nation.

April 25: National Helen Thomas (True Journalist) Day!

Posted by Pile (6100 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[News Media]
In the wake of the latest exhibit of true journalism by what appears to be the only real journalist left in the Washington Press Corps, we proclaim April 25 HELEN THOMAS (True Journalist) DAY!

While other networks talk about steroids in sports or dogs who can ride a skateboard or American Idol, Helen Thomas is the only real news reporter left in the White House Press Corps.

More than a week after the revelation that President Bush knew and endorsed specific plans of torturing detainees, the media has been largely silent over it other than cursory mentions at best. But Helen Thomas isn’t about to go silently into that good night and becomes the first White House reporter to ask White House spokesliar Dana Perino about how the president could have lied multiple times that we do not torture only to turn around and admit that not only do we, but he approved of it.

Continuing with their business strategy and focusing their marketing efforts, FOX has now acquired Beliefnet, the Internet's largest religious web site. It makes perfect sense. If you're likely to believe in God, you're probably an ideal Fox News consumer.

It's ironic that talk show host Montel Williams is the one to bring actual "news" to a show about news. Let's watch as he turns the Fox hosts' conversation from another hollywood actor who OD'd to more important social and political matters like soldiers dying in Iraq.

UPDATE: Montel Williams has lost his job because of this!!

Olbermann On Fox News' Attack On Decency

[News Media]
On Monday's episode of Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Keith was joined by Brave New Films' Robert Greenwald to discuss the phenomenal success of their "Fox Attacks: Decency" video. Fox News repeatedly uses gratuitous footage of T & A even in stories which are totally unrelated. Get a look at the report about a serial killer in Daytona which Fox inexplicably juxtaposes with what appears to be some kind of wet t-shirt contest.

In reaction to Dennis Kucinich's bill to pursue impeachment proceedings for Vice President Cheney, CBS's Harry Smith called the effort a "bluff," that only a "handful of people" are in favor of impeachment and merely a political tactic to get a failing presidential candidate some attention... Watch this embarrassing hit-piece on a politician who is actually trying to do something about the administration's impending rhetoric for invading Iran....

What is Concision? This is the notion that the American media has adopted that demands that details they provide in the mass media, and guests they invite to talk, must be able to make their points quickly and concisely.

What does this mean for you and the search for truth? Noam Chomsky has some wickedly brilliant insight...

Fox News Caught Hacking Wikipedia Entries, "Conservatizing" Them

It's amusing that media like Fox News routinely make fun of Wiki as being an unreliable source of information. Now we know why: People at Fox have been systematically hacking entries in Wiki and removing/distorting facts.

This time they've been caught red-handed, with their pants down, thanks to Wikipedia's "liberally-biased" system that tracks all changes to the system and where they came from.

Harvard Student Sells Out Classmate's Privacy For Publicity

Who's Lucy Morrow Caldwell? She's the Harvard student who broke the story about Rudy Giuliani's 17 year-old daughter having the audacity to be a member of an Obama fan club on Facebook. Never mind that Giuliani might be Hitler in a dress, his daughter went out of her way to keep her life private, even changing her name online and refusing to talk to the press. This didn't deter Caldwell from virtually stalking the poor girl, exposing non-public information, and using it as a way of launching her wannabe yellow-journalistic career.

As a result, the online community is up in arms over whether or not turnabout is fair play, but at least one blogger has gone out of his way to "out" the lisping blonde from Harvard for her unethical activities.

It's been three years since Michael Moore appeared on CNN, and he took full advantage of appearing LIVE in front of Wolf Blitzer to respond to the network's hit piece on his movie "Sicko" and call out CNN for their irresponsible journalism on the Iraq war and more. This is one clip you must see.
