CNN calls up reinforcements for the next war

with 5 comments

Why let Fox News have all the fun and glory of screwing the minds of the myopic public right into the next triumphant snow-job of annihilation for more uninvolved civilians in another country that has done nothing, and has no potential to do anything to pose a real threat to the national security of the united states? That’s easy enough to fix, just go out and hire yourself a former white house press secretary that happens to be the most blatant war criminal apologist since the Truman administration and you’re good to go.

They smile in your face, all the time they wanna take your place, the back-stabbers

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former White House press secretary Tony Snow will join CNN as a conservative commentator beginning Monday.

Snow most recently served as press secretary to President Bush. For 10 years, beginning in 1996, he appeared on Fox News Channel as the host of Fox News Sunday, Weekend Live with Tony Snow and other programs. Before joining Fox, Snow served as a substitute “From the Right” co-host for CNN’s Crossfire.

Increased Fragmentation Of TV News Audiences Along Party Lines

“Ideology and partisanship used to be completely unrelated to the television news people consumed,” said study author Barry Hollander, associate professor of journalism in the UGA Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. “But they’ve become significant factors in the last five years.”

Hollander analyzed five national telephone surveys conducted from 1998 to 2006 by the Pew Center for the People and the Press, and his results are scheduled to appear in the spring edition of the journal Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly.

I guess that’s one way of getting the warmonger viewers back in your camp, eh?

The Mike Wallace Interview: Aldous Huxley

with 5 comments

The University of Texas at Austin, Harry Ransom Center, has taken on the task of putting many hours of film, from the mid to late fifties, of the early career of reporter/journalist Mike Wallace and the program, The Mike Wallace Interview. I found the one with Huxley to be exceptionally reflective from todays vantage point.
