Media Control Doctrine

Listen to self-described liberal democrat, Camille Paglia blast her fellow Democrats for trying to bring back the Fairness Doctrine.

"They totally betrayed the soul of the party."

speaking of media - anyone see Alexandra Pelosi's documentary? Any opinions?

I found it interesting and offensive all at once. There were a lot of good points in there (Talking about the media, the issues, the experience, the shift from John McCain - America's sweetheart to John McCain = George Bush) but there was a good chunk focused on 'rednecks' in Mississippi and at NASCAR events where you were guaranteed to get a response that would include the 'n' word along the way. Classy.

I think I saw two quick scenes with Media's rally, including a scene where they interviewed a personality from Fox News.

I have to agree with Paglia. As I've pointed out on this blog in the past, long before Paglia made this statement, the liberals have NPR. It's much more reasonable and balanced than anything I've ever heard on conservative talk radio, and I believe that it shows the liberal media to be much more responsible than the conservative talk shows. Another thing this points out, is that liberal talking heads have the ability to criticize, analyze, and disagree with those in our own fold. Chalk one up for Swarthmores Paglia.

funny, I find NPR offensive. Guess it's in the opinion of the listener.

There a radio station I put on when I'm driving through Michigan - talk station who's schedule shifts from far right personalities to far left personalities. I listened one day and heard righty-Rush followed by leftist Ed Schultz. The format of the station was so bad I was dying to find anything sports related - even if it meant listening to callers whine about the Lions!

bob, look it up on when you get a chance, I think the title started with "Feeling Wronged" or something like that. Portions were fair, I did identify with a number of things said - but the comments from some of the southern gentlemen felt more like a stereotype - they didn't represent my thoughts or opinions. Race wasn't anywhere on my mind when I made my decision as to who I was supporting last year - You can go back in the spencerblog archives and you'll see that any of my comments on race were either in response to something by randal or in making a light joke out of a post. I don't appreciate the notion that people with conservative values are white and racist.

Steve - Right America: Feeling Wronged. Unfortunatly I dont have HBO, but Ill find someone who does and watch it. It just came out on the 16th. What do you find offensive about NPR?

Hey, is there footage of Randal getting frisked by a jack booted security guard?
