The socialist free-marketer

Oh the irony of ironies.  While News Corp is off calling Obama a socialist he is quietly pushing reforms Republicans have wanted for decades: Introducing competition to public schools via charters.

We demand disclosure

January 24, 2009

The WSJ has now been fully integrated into the right-wing echo-chamber.

Recently I briefly caught Bill O’Reilly discussing the Minnesota recount.  He cited a WSJ article that “suggested” there was “cheating” in the recount, but presented it in a way that implied it was proof.  As if to say that the journal says it, therefore it’s true.

To make matters worse, he didn’t bother to mention that the Journal and Fox News are both properties of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation.

While we can’t stop Mr. Murdoch from destroying an American institution’s journalistic integrity, or Mr. O’Reilly from spouting utter nonsense, we can demand that they inform their viewers about this grave conflict of interest.

Not doing so each and every time is to grossly mislead viewers.

More details.
