Weak Knees

Paul Hodes

I'm sick and tired of Democrats getting weak knees every time the right-wing media flexes their muscles. The firing of Shirley Sherrod is the latest example.

It Seems Fitting that as Palin Lies Again, ABC News Cuts a Quarter of Its Staff

Mitchell Bard | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

This weekend's Palin and ABC News stories -- lies and layoffs, respectively -- remind us that the sources of our shared facts are all but gone. And who wins as a result? Those who would seek to create lies to further political goals.

Today is the 15 year anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. As we reflect back upon the horror of that day, we should simultaneously reflect upon the current threats of domestic terrorism facing our nation.

Americans Simply Don't Do Sacrifice Anymore

Instead of prayer, the president could have asked us all in his address to make sacrifices towards the goal of weaning ourselves off of fossil fuels. It wouldn't have hurt. But it would have been mostly ignored.

Exposing Glenn Beck as a Dangerous Fraud, Part 2

Bob Cesca | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

Beck owes it to his audience to "step out of character" and admit, on his show, that he's staging an elaborate hoax. His hero Orson Welles did it, and so can he.

So where are the Christian leaders tonight? Are they doing anything to rein in their extremists? No. They can be found where they always are: bashing gays and telling everyone else how to live a moral life.

The Monsters They Created

Agree with his politics or not, he is still the president of our country and this effort to destabilize him and the Democratic majority through lies and violence is crazy.

Windows and Mirrors

Any house we want to inhabit should have numerous windows and mirrors. The windows are needed so we can see what is going on outside the house and mirrors so we can reflect for self-improvement.

Ed Gurowitz, Ph.D.

This is a new kind of enemy, but like the enemy outside, they will not be defeated until people of good will for whom they claim to speak and act stop quietly acquiescing and speak out against them.

The People Speak is more than just must-see-TV. It is nothing less than the life's work of Howard Zinn brought to life by some of the most talented actors, musicians, and poets in the country.

Media Battles in Latin America Not About "Free Speech"

Mark Weisbrot

International organizations who take an absolutist position with regard to free speech in countries such as Ecuador should apply the same standards to the United States.

Imagine if the Today's Right-Wing Were Around for Nuremberg

Cenk Uygur | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Cenk Uygur

The right-wing radicals, unanimous in their agreement that KSM should not be tried in the U.S. courts, aren't just crazy, they're un-American. We don't take people out and shoot them without trials.

Why is Fox News Leaving Geithner Alone?

Cenk Uygur | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Cenk Uygur

The right-wing media in this country have no interest in attacking big money, big corporations or big banks. So, while they'll call for Napolitano to be fired just for misspeaking, Geithner is bullet-proof.

Larry Gellman

This Yom Kippur there is reason for concern. The politics of rumor, innuendo, and lies -- sinat chinam -- is on the rise in our community and it hurts us all.

Time's cover is the beginning of a rehab job for Glenn Beck. The magazine is trying once again to make it okay for people to sponsor this "person".

Conservatives have an advantage because they only attack; they don't propose solutions to real problems or alternatives to Democratic initiatives.

My Letter to Rupert Murdoch

Dear Mr. Murdoch: I have been sickened and saddened by the choices your news organizations have made to show, over and over, on TV, horrible, hate inspired images against President Obama.

No paranoid fantasy seems too bizarre, too implausible, or too disconnected from consensual reality to find a credulous audience among right wing true believers.
