Update: Media Bias

See what the Wall Street Journal headline was:    http://www.morningstar.com/news/dow-jones/TDJNDN_201801261459/caterpillar-breaks-losing-streak-wsj.htm   By:  Diane Benjamin The Pantagraph claims to pay big bucks for Associated Press stories.  Below is why they need to knock it off!

Pantagraph and Associated Press

by:  Diane Benjamin I rarely write about national issues, but when the Pantagraph publishes an Associated Press article on the front page titled:  Budget deficit at lowest level under Obama somebody has to provide facts.  The title is campaign propaganda for the uniformed. Wow, the deficit is down to $483 Billion.  Everybody celebrate – as we rapidly […]

Fly on the Wall: Pantagraph

Maybe Associated Press can’t make up enough stories to fill the Pantagraph pages anymore. Today they have the same story on pages A10 and C2 – Social Security closing offices.  Budget cuts are blamed.

Associated Press thinks you are stupid!

by:  Diane Benjamin Today’s story:  Stats show U.S. not that into driving anymore by Joan Lowy. It’s a long story, complete with history, demographics, life styles, social networking, and only a passing mention of “economic factors”.

This Australian knows more about USA than citizens

Most notably, it owes its remarkable exceptionalism and the durability of its experiment to the men who founded it. With a penetrating prescience, these men grasped better than any before them the true nature of man, […]

Media LIES vrs the TRUTH

by Diane Benjamin I’ve said for quite awhile:  If your newspaper gets news from Associated Press – Don’t get your news from the newspaper! Wonder what really happened in Benghazi Libya when our ambassador and 3 others were murdered? Associated Press – via the Pantagraph: http://www.pantagraph.com/news/world/middle-east/video-shows-libyans-trying-to-rescue-us-ambassador/image_cec82c3a-dd95-5178-8fb6-9bad3bc9ee0a.html Basically – the stupid video got people upset – […]
