You wouldn't know it from all the political oxygen in the media taken
up with the fiscal cliff and the kerfuffle over the House not voting for
a Hurricane Sandy relief package, but the Obama administration
yesterday announced a regulatory change that will make it incredibly

Washington Post gave the development six paragraphs of coverage which it
placed at the bottom of page A15 in the January 3 edition of the paper. Nowhere in that brief story were any critics of the new policy approached for comment.

Are you tired of having to go to YouTube to watch video of terrorists killing U.S. soldiers?

statements in crystal-clear HD?
Well, great news, kids! Al “no controlling legal authority” Gore is
selling his far-left vanity network, Current TV, to Al Jazeera – the
anti-western terror mouthpiece bank-rolled by the emir of Qatar
As NewsBusters reported Wednesday, Al Jazeera entered into an agreement to buy Al Gore's failing network Current TV.
Hours later, as a result of the purchase, Time Warner Cable dropped the
station with a message reading to viewers "This channel is no longer
available on Time Warner Cable."
