When Rick Perry says, “I’ll be really honest with ya,” there’s a pretty good chance he’s about to lie.#iowadebate— Paul Begala (@PaulBegala) December 16, 2011

What might be next for Herman Cain? Because I have no doubt that there is a TV-radio future if you wanted one.Sean Hannity • Discussing what Herman Cain should do next, now that he’s suspended his presidential campaign. Hannity had Cain on his show Thursday night, his first TV appearance since he suspended his campaign amidst allegations of a long-term sexual affair about a week ago. He has since endorsed Newt Gingrich. source (via • follow)

”the media has played a key role in creating a justification for regime change” // “the media tends to march in lock step with the govt, to showcase what the govt says is true, even if its later proven to be untrue.”
america is pure ratchetness if you ask me. she steals, she lies, she dont give a fuck.
Just watched this, but before you jump too quick: This report does the very same thing it accuses CNN and Fox News of doing. (By the way: Give us more evidence than a random sign that the average viewer can barely read in a fuzzy, low resolution video! And the CNN thing happened a year ago and is unrelated to the current protests.) “RT” stands for Russia Today, and its media coverage is clearly slanted towards Russian interests. Out of all the countries in the world to make their point with, they pick Ukraine and Georgia? This clip has a guy who says “the media tends to march in lockstep with the government,” on a network which is state-owned. Let’s be honest with ourselves before sharing videos like these. Every form of media has its own biases. Including the critics of other media outlets. Don’t pick one over the other. Watch both and make up your own mind. EDIT: The Atlantic Wire confirmed the issues with the Fox video.
People who watch Fox News, the most popular of the 24-hour cable news networks, are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government than those who watch no news at all (after controlling for other news sources, partisanship, education and other demographic factors).A new study from Fairleigh-Dickinson University, assessing which news outlets are the most informative. The most informative sources were, on the whole, NPR, The Daily Show, and Sunday morning shows as a whole. The least informative were Fox News, MSNBC, and “a local TV news broadcast.” (Unanswered: What about people who watch Fox News Sunday?) People who watched MSNBC were the most likely to mistakenly believe that Occupy Wall Street is a predominantly-Republican movement.
Not a banner day for Geraldo Rivera: In a crowd with fresh memories of Jesse LaGreca’s epic takedown of Griff Jenkins, Geraldo’s not-so-warm welcome is a tad heartwarming. Now, granted, his coverage of the protests — complete with Tavis Smiley and Cornel West talking from a studio — was pretty balanced, and not in that “Fair and Balanced” way, either. But his network affiliation led to some chants over his news broadcast — not fun — and eventually led to this rough exit, captured by Russia Today. source
