While we respect the sincerity of your writings, just wondering: since you're studying to be a political science professor, do you think your bias will influence your teaching?

"Americans should not have to wonder whether the news they are viewing is disguised government PR."

Nor should Americans have to wonder whether the news they are viewing is disguised Democrat Party talking points. CBS used faked memos from a Democrat, Bush-hating zealot to try to affect the outcome of a Presidential election. And your priority is Armstrong Williams? Hell, I believe it was Howard Kurtz who called the MSM a political party.

The fact is today, Americans have to take all media with a grain of salt. Get news from different sources and make up their own minds.

I'd like to see all government PR outlawed, not only that from Republican Administrations.

Kurtz was only partly right. The MSM is the propaganda wing of the Leftist religion.


Why not have a federal law that requires that pundits and journalists indicate how much political spin they were paid by which parties to present.

Then have some sort of Federal Minimum Daily Spin standards.

The irony of course is that your assertion

Get news from different sources and make up their own minds.

remains the constant problem of how to know how many sources one needs to track to keep abreast of which is the actual story in occurrance. Whether we are talking "the Government" or any of the other 'popular' topics.

If the reporting of the story in america conflicts with how radio free europe, reports the story, should one take the american indigenous spin? Or the overseas american spin?
