Accuracy in Media You know the standards of the media have hit rock bottom when a liberal commentator makes news for telling the truth. Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post and MSNBC has become a media star for his belated recognition of the “Hands up, don’t shoot” lie out of Ferguson, Missouri.

poperehabilitates

Accuracy in Media Armando Valladares, Castro’s political prisoner for 22 years, said his Catholic faith was strengthened behind bars by hearing young Catholics shouting “Viva Cristo Rey,” for “Long Live Christ the King,” and “down with communism!” as they faced the firing squad.

Congress Fiddles While the World Burns

Will Saudi Prince Thwart Terror Probes?

saudiprince

Accuracy in Media CNN has a problem: one of its hosts, Michael Smerconish, is uncovering evidence about the Saudi role in 9/11. But a CNN analyst, Frances Townsend, has been rubbing elbows with one of the alleged Saudi financiers of al-Qaeda. Perhaps they ought to get together and compare notes. The strange story begins with Smerconish on his CNN show last Saturday interviewing attorney Sean Carter, who … [Read more...]

Say Her Name: Vaccine Victim Hannah Poling

SharylAttkissonA

Accuracy in Media Brian Williams’ “chopper whoppers” about his exploits as a correspondent flying into Iraq are making him look foolish. It’s not clear whether he can survive in the anchor chair.

We are being told they are completely … [Read more...]

Climate Change, the Pope, and World Government

deliberatecorruption

America's Survival     Propaganda over “climate change” is designed to usher in more socialism and an anti-human agenda. So what can we do about it? That’s the topic as Dr. Timothy Ball discusses his new book, "The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science." This is critical because the Pope has joined Obama on the climate change bandwagon. Dr. Ball has written: “The Pope apparently did … [Read more...]

The Media, Hollywood and the Pro-life Cause

Accuracy in Media Ronald Reagan said, “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” In that context, one fascinating banner at the recent March for Life referred to the “survivors” of the abortion on demand mentality.

A No-Go Zone for Truth

Accuracy in Media I recently asked John A. Stormer, author of the 1964 bestseller, None Dare Call It Treason, if he thought President Barack Obama was a Marxist. “He’s two things,” Stormer told me. “Is he a Marxist or is he a Muslim?
