Does anyone have any good examples of media bias? Link me, or post them here, or whatever. Go ahead and give your opinions if you want, too.

I need them for a Government assignment, and I figured some of you might have examples.

President’s nominees:  Priscilla Owen, who has advanced her personal anti-choice views from her seat on the Texas Supreme Court; William Pryor, who has questioned the entire concept of the church/state separation; and Janice Rogers Brown, who has been continually hostile to civil rights.

this was in an e-mail i recieved today from rabbi saperstein, at the RAC (religious action center) and it really scares me...that these people are so closed minded and truly selfish. i guess because all three of these people oppose rights i believe are extremely neccessary. it's also interesting to know that people believe their religion is above another, where does that mind frame come from? how is it taught, and that one person is below another, i realize this has been around for thousands of years...its still just mind boggling....thoughts?

xoxox,

p.s. although this is old news and there was a fillibuster to stop them from being able to get elected...

jewish but not just for jews

hey you guys, i've really been feeling like a minority latelly because i wear one of those shalom bracelets, and a rubber one that says "stand strong for israel" and then one of the metal cuffs of someone killed by terrorists in israel, and people just tell me "G-D! your so jewish!" it gets kind of annoying...anyway the reason im posting is to show you guys a site that is set up by jews but its really great because they have a whole archive where they let you know whats going on in congress and the senate and what to e-mail/write letters to your congressman/senator about. its really influential and a great resource to stay in touch with whats happening over in that big house. the website is:  http://capwiz.com/rac/home/

 

hope ya'll are doing great,

Is this thing on?

I usually lurk over at negroclash, so I might as well lurk over here. howdy. minority. The way I speak and the way I look have never matched. I get grief from black people for refusing to put chemicals in my hair and love chingy and I get grief from white people for not living up to the stereotype du jour.

I'm a cultural loser baby, so why don't ya kill me. And for the record I don't give two shits. If loving indie rock is wrong, I don't wanna be right.


*resumes lurking*

P.S. I'm roobysoho because some evil squatter bitchmonsters took rubysoho and ruby_soho. I hate name squatters. they should be flogged. neither of the fuckers has posted in like YEARS.

"Urge Your Members of Congress to Pass the Darfur Accountability Act of 2005
Violence continues in the western region of Darfur. Government-supported Arab militias—collectively known as “Janjaweed”—continue to attack the civilian populations of the Fur, Masaalit, and Zaghawa communities in the Darfur region. Villages and towns are being bombed and scorched, water sources and food stores are being destroyed, and civilians are being systematically targeted for mass killings, rape, and ethnic cleansing. The countryside is now emptied of its original Masaalit and Fur inhabitants. Livestock, food stores, wells and pumps, blankets and clothing have been looted or destroyed. 350,000 civilians have lost their lives in the camps alone; over 2 million civilians have been internally displaced; and over 200,000 have fled to neighboring Chad. 35,000 civilians continue to die each month.

There is new legislation in the House and the Senate to address this crisis – The Darfur Accountability Act of 2005 (S.495 and H.R.1424). These two bills would impose targeted sanctions, seek international justice for perpetrators of the genocide, and support more troops (African Union, UN, or NATO) on the ground in Darfur to protect civilians. We are also pleased to learn of the passage of two new UN Security Council Resolutions – one imposing limited sanctions and another resolution referring war criminals from Sudan to the International Criminal Court. Realizing that this is only the beginning of what needs to be done, the Reform Movement continues to push the President, State Department, and the United Nations Security Council to follow through on their commitments to Sudan.


***Action Needed***

In emails, phone calls, and faxes, please urge your Members of Congress to address the needs of the Sudanese people by voting for the Darfur Accountability Act of 2005. To reach your Members of Congress, call the Capitol Switchboard at 202.224.3121. To send email using our Legislative Action Center, click here. "
