I read this week’s Enemy of the Week. It referenced last week’s EOW, which I promptly found archived and went on to read (sorry!). That reference was to ABC, Terry Moran, and Sir Peter Jennings, of “World News” fame. Our community, Portland, Oregon, was graced by a full day of Sir Peter, as in 24+ hours’ worth! He was gracious to co-chair our local town hall live TV show on the ABC affiliate as well as anchor his “World News Tonight” from our beautiful area.
Mr. Jennings was glad to explain his role in the news media as well as his desired outcome in that role. He sounded decidedly French when speaking of the media’s role and his role as the editor-in-chief of ABC’s “World News Tonight.” He went on to say that their (his) job was to act as a counter-balance to the stated U.S. policy (read: President Bush’s), and to provide another view. Not one time did he mention the primary role of news shows, the one remembered in the past, in reporting the news. The “editing” came in deciding subjects of “national importance,” or which live events to cover, or what general topics would be of interest to viewers. Now we have the pleasure of hearing vaunted opinions of such luminaries as Sir Peter, or the ever valiant Prince Terry. Any question as to their opinions and slanting is cast aside by reviewing the question asked by his royalness, the Crown Prince, referenced in the EOW of March 7th.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
