The Government Takeover of the Media
The Government is using “Rather-Gate” to pummel CBS and other media into toting the party line. Right-wingers cheer as each independent source of news and information is snuffed out. It’s more than Armstrong Williams: what Stalin, Saddam Hussein, and other dictators did in the past, Bush and his appointed Iraqi puppet Allawi continue to do in the present: all of these leaders used or continue to use Government funds to pay the media to air their propaganda, and none of these rulers saw or see anything wrong with it. Having conquered the Presidency and the Supreme Court and both Houses of Congress, the neo-cons are proceeding apace in their takeover of the Fourth Estate: the Press.
The Tsunami Disaster: A Great Opportunity to Convert Muslims to Christianity?
Have you heard about “WorldHelp,” the missionary organization supported by Falwell’s Liberty University that is willing to help Indonesian orphans on the condition that they be raised Christian? Does anyone support this? Doesn’t anyone see how this harms America in the Muslim world?
Klansman Indicted for 1964 Civil Rights Murders
It’s about time! I don’t believe it’s ever too late to try Edgar Ray Killen. I don’t care that he’s 79 years old. Do you agree?
Washington State Governor Takes Office Despite Republican Demands for a Re-Vote
Ain’t that a switch?
Bush Limiting Access to Inaugural Parade to Supporters
Is anyone surprised here? I guess Dubya doesn’t want a repeat of what happened in 2000, when protestors outnumbered supporters. I’ll give THE INSIDE SCOOP on the pending lawsuit.
Israeli Prime Minister Sharon Cuts Off Negotiations with New Palestinian President Abbas Following Terrorist Attack Carried out by Palestinian Security Forces
Do you blame Sharon? I don’t. Abbas needs to show he’s serious about stopping terrorism. He can start with his own forces.
Texas Companies Cooperate in Tom Delay Investigation
This is making the most powerful evil genius in Congress — one of my Four Horseman of the Apocalypse — very nervous.
Check out the ALL-NEW Sunday Weekly Review, beginning at 1:06 pm Eastern Time (12:06 Central, 11:06 am Mountain, 10:06 am Pacific), following 6 minutes of CNN news.
Only on Mark Levine’s INSIDE SCOOP on Washington.
[Note on Sunday Weekly Review to INSIDE SCOOP fans: Too often, small INSIDE SCOOPs fall through the cracks because there’s not enough information on them to describe in a full hour-long show. To remedy the situation — and provide you the information both large and small you need at the work water cooler and the family dinner table — we are beginning this week a new feature at THE INSIDE SCOOP: the Sunday Weekly Review.
Just as Tuesday is devoted to Debate Tuesday, the Sunday Weekly Review will devote every Sunday at 1:06 pm Eastern to the story behind tidbits of information you may not have heard discussed in detail in the mainstream press.
As with every show, you are encouraged to call in, question and/or challenge Mark. In fact, your calls will help determine which of the mini-SCOOPs Mark spends the most time discussing. Feel free to comment in the Weblog below on these topics or on the entire idea of the Sunday Weekly Review. Statistics from web listeners show that Debate Tuesdays are some of the most popular shows of the week. Mark’s hope is that in time, the Sunday Weekly Review will also grow in popularity.]
