Study: U.S. Newspapers Are More Than Twice As Likely to Cite Israeli Sources in Headlines Than Palestinian Ones
At the height of the 2014 war between the Israeli military and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip, the New York Times ran an article headlined, “Israel Says That Hamas Uses Civilian Shields, Reviving Debate.” It was an apparent reference to the hundreds of Palestinian civilians who had been killed in Israeli attacks by that point in the war. There was no question about who had killed them, yet the language shifted the subject to a “debate” about who was really responsible. A few weeks earlier, after an Israeli airstrike killed several Palestinian soccer fans, the Times ran the absurd title, “Missile at Beachside Gaza Cafe Finds Patrons Poised for World Cup,” later amending the headline in the face of widespread disgust expressed on social media.

Headlines matter. As studies have repeatedly shown, when it comes to reaching the general public, the words at the top of the page might be as important, if not more, than the text of articles themselves — to the chagrin of many writers. In the case of the Israel-Palestine conflict, inappropriate, misleading, and biased headlines like those that appeared in the New York Times during 2014 Gaza War have been all too common. (...)

The 10 Most Appalling Articles in the Weekly Standard’s Short and Dreadful Life
The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine founded in 1995 by William Kristol and Fred Barnes with Rupert Murdoch’s money, has expired. Its final issue will be published on Monday.

Most famous for making the case for the catastrophic invasion of Iraq, the magazine was born just one year before Murdoch created Fox News. Both outlets were extremely effective at achieving the same goals via different tactics. Fox was chum for the rubes; the Weekly Standard was chum for Ivy League rubes. Fox pushed mindless belligerence, conspiracism and a deep hatred for reality; the Weekly Standard did the same thing, but with less cleavage and more quotes from Cicero. (In 2009 Murdoch sold it to Philip Anschutz, a fellow billionaire who if anything is more conservative than Murdoch.)

Put another way, Fox was the conservative movement’s amygdala, while the Weekly Standard was its cerebrum, both driving it forward until Trump’s election proved it no longer needed any higher brain functions. But together they played a powerful role in pushing the GOP to where it stands today. (...)

Zuckerberg, in his testimony, made some comment about how he admitted that Silicon Valley was left-leaning.

We need to stop that shit right now. We need to start using the term "not right wing conservative" instead, so we acknowledge that the people running the media, the internet, a lot of the businesses in our nation, and just the folks living in America have a varied nature: moderate, liberal, and even middle of the road Republican. By framing the majority of the nation as "not you" we get to redirect the conversation away from a far-left, far-right fiction, and towards a "most of the country, and then there's you guys" sort of scenario.

Do U.S. Oligarchs Exist? Not in Mainstream Media
Word choice is revealing when one considers an indisputable fact: U.S. oligarchs have done far more to undermine U.S. democracy than any Russian ever could

I think it's fantastic. Because our society in general is getting bogged down in nit picky things and missing the big picture issues (truth, fairness, interpersonal relationships).

So, leaving behind the "little" issue of Russia and worrying instead - and agreeing on the idea - of honesty and fairness... that's a level of discussion that's absolutely worth it.

Agreed.  Intellectual libertarians have consistently opposed US military meddling and signalled the threat of blowback.

Funny though, lots of folks in both Canada and the USA like to think of themselves as "libertarians" but continue to promote pro-war, pro 'kill and take' policies.  

If there were more honest-to-god libertarians, classic liberals and Quakers in North America, perhaps this cycle of endless wealth-destroying war would slow down a bit?  

 




Yea, but I wouldn't hold my breath the duopoly has us by a chokehold. :-(

Eating babies?  No, you love aerial-bombing babies.  Apparently it is a classy, socially acceptable way of killing grandchildren and grandparents.  And of course, because all these civilian, non-terrorist deaths are righteous, there is no threat of blowback.
