Tigergate

Dec 15, 2009

By now everyone in the Western world – and then some – has heard about golf superstar Tiger Woods’ indiscretions. His harem is already past the dirty dozen, and shows no signs of leveling off. Each day brings a new

Scaring Our Kids to Death (To Save the Planet)

Dec 9, 2009

The four-minute opening video at the Copenhagen Summit was a propaganda piece which would have made Goebbels proud. Entitled “Please Help the World,” it has all the hallmarks of a Hollywood end-of-the-world blockbuster. Loaded with emotional hysteria, moving imagery, and

Climategate and Mediagate

Dec 1, 2009

Thank God for the alternative media. And a pox on the mainstream media. The former has done wonders in running with the Climategate story while the latter has shown its true colours as a censorious, bigoted and biased bunch of

Rogue Science and Biased Media

Nov 25, 2009

This has not been a good week for the climate alarmists. Nor has it been a good week for the mainstream media. The MSM has proven once again that much of the media is no longer interested in objectivity, fact,

More Abortion Killings

Sep 13, 2009

Yet another abortion-related murder. The controversial issue of abortion has resulted in more killing. And as usual the media is having a feeding frenzy on this story. All over the world the news of this latest shooting is being reported.

Crucified For Speaking the Truth

Aug 2, 2009

There is one thing that can be counted on with absolute certainly in this relativistic world: there is a protected species which no one even dares to cross, certainly not in the mainstream media. This group can now get away

Discrimination and the Media

Jul 22, 2009

For all the hoopla about discrimination, the simple truth is everyone discriminates all the time. And that is just as true of the mainstream media, which so often crusades against what it considers to be the evils of discrimination. Every

More Jaundiced Journalism

Jun 22, 2009

To get a job in the mainstream media today is not all that difficult. Let’s say you want to write for one of the major newspapers, such as the Age or Sydney Morning Herald. You do not necessarily have

More Secular-Left Double Standards

Jun 13, 2009

I know it seems like ages ago, but try to think back to the days when George W. Bush was in the White House. You knew he was there because almost on a daily basis the mainstream media was warning

Ida, Media Hype, and Science

May 21, 2009

Charles Darwin once made this remark about his theory: “The number of intermediate varieties, which have formerly existed on the earth, [must] be truly enormous. Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links?

More Global Cooling

Apr 20, 2009

The mainstream media, parts of the scientific community, and various special interest groups want to convince us that the planet is warming. And if the scientific case for that seems iffy, then they at least want to convince us that

More Atheist Arrogance

Apr 15, 2009

Another day, another outburst from God-hater Catherine Deveny. The Age atheist is at it again, with yet another juvenile attack on God. Her arrogance and poisonous posturing are really becoming quite tedious and offensive. Consider her opening paragraph:

“Good Friday

The ABC’s War on Christianity

Mar 30, 2009

The acronym ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) could as easily stand for the Atheist Broadcasting Corporation. Or perhaps Anti-Biblical Christianity. It is an incredibly secular, leftist and trendy network, pushing almost all the wrong ideologies. A good case in point is

On Israel’s Right to Self-Defence

Jan 3, 2009

The mainstream media is up to its usual tricks: for three years now some 3,500 missiles have been fired by Hamas into Israeli territory. I don’t seem to recall much of this reported by the MSM. Yet now that Israel

Mumbai and Islamic Terrorism

Dec 2, 2008

Even though it is not politically correct to say so, there is a lot of terrorism taking place, and quite a bit of it is coming from Muslims. Indeed, there is actually far more terrorism going on than most people

Media Bias

Nov 15, 2008

The reason this website exists – and many like it – is because of media bias. If the mainstream media (MSM) were doing its job properly, there may not be a need for sites such as this. But because the

Some Scientific Sense on Climate Change

Aug 20, 2008

Normally it is hard to get a word in edgewise on the climate change debate. The mainstream media mostly features true believers, and seldom gives the doubters a run. But miracles do happen on occasion. On Sunday night 60 Minutes
