From the MSM, the Washington Post no less;
Babies, Bigotry and 9/11
The ugly wave of anti-Arab feelings immediately after Sept. 11, 2001, may have been responsible for a sharp increase in the incidence of premature and low-birth-weight babies born to women of Arab descent in the United States in the months that followed the terrorist attacks
And they wonder why they are becoming increasingly irrelevant?
And this lefty wing counter intuituve jewel from Larry Elder here;
In February, our economy created 243,000 new jobs.
Yet one of our major newspapers tells us almost half of Americans consider the economy in a recession. American Research Group's latest monthly survey found 59 percent of Americans rate the economy as bad, very bad, or terrible. Why are Americans so negative?
Because the Mainstream media is clubbing the American people to death with that lie for years now.
Compare the first few paragraphs of this particular story by Investors Business Daily to the way the New York Times [shocka!- Atlas] reported the story.
Investors Business Daily, paragraph 1: "U.S. companies in nearly every sector increased hiring last month, lifting job growth to better than forecast levels and enticing more people into the labor market."
New York Times, paragraph 1: "American employers added 243,000 jobs in February and workers posted their highest salary gains in more than four years, the government reported yesterday, igniting concerns among many Wall Street economists that higher wages could fuel inflation and increase expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates further." [Emphasis added.]
Note the New York Times felt compelled to add a "but" or a "cautionary note" to the economic expansion. Someone made a decision to add a cautionary note, not that the proviso is wrong, or necessarily inappropriate, but it absolutely changes the tone of the story. But couldn't one also accuse Investors Business Daily of failing to provide balance by omitting this cautionary note?
No, for America's economy, by virtually any standard, remains an incredible economic powerhouse. Read it all Hat tip Paul T
As Canadians under the Liberals didn't accept to go to war, we have to count on other countries to free our own hostages today.
In case you missed it, the Lefist-Media is distorting the truth again. The hostages were not released, nor freed.
They were rescued. Big difference. The media refuses to report any good the US military does. The US captured an insurgent and forced him to say where the captives were. US and Brits raided the place. The insurgents did not have guards at the time, so the Allies rescued the prisoners without a shot being fired.
One of the ironies the media won't report is that these anti-war Leftists were freed by the very people who they were protesting against.
