Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/26/2012 8:54:37 AM

The Chicago Tribune has announced that starting in January, the Chicago-based paper and several other Tribune-owned papers will be dropping the Associated Press as its chief wire service. Along with the Chicago paper, six other Tribune-owned papers will also be dropping the AP. Those papers are the Baltimore Sun; the Orlando Sentinel; the South Florida Sun-Sentinel; the Hartford Courant; the Morning Call of Allentown, Pennsylvania; and the Daily Press of Newport News, Virginia. Reports from Tribune insiders were confirmed Sunday by Paul Colford, director of media relations for AP.

No problem. I usually look to see if it´s an AP story. If it is I just skip it as liberal blather.

You nailed it #2 - do not read "news" stories with AP or New York Times tag.

The Chicago Tribune is already full of reports of local gang shootings. There´s no room for AP stories.

Good to see. Since I got rid of another worthless lib newspaper, the Denver Post, a long time ago, haven´t had the problem of skipping past the ars-press stories. While the Trib did the right thing, newspapers definitely disappearing slow but sure.

These rags are probably upset that AP actually ran a conservative columnist or a story favorable to anyone other than their lord and savior, barack hussein obama, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.

They can get all the leftist slant they need from in house or maybe sign up for Al Jazerra.

Unfortunately, most small town newspapers use the Associated Press as their main source of news reports. When I recently cancelled my local rag, the lady asked me why I was doing so. When I explained I was tired of so much leftist slanting of what´s going on in the world, she replied that she got quite as many complaints that the paper was too conservative. I was too polite to tell her I thought she was lying, but, on reflection, given the voting results of November 6, maybe she was being honest.

I stopped watching network news in 1992 after they elected Bill Clinton.I dropped my local newspaper after the 2008 election for the same reasons stated above. They could not have cared less. They were recently sold off.

I think the news media may be committing suicide faster than the rest of the country.

Does columnist John Kass, the only column worth reading in the Trib, get the extra money the Trib charges with "Digital Plus" just to read his columns? I guess it is a "pay-to-play" Chicago solution to a problem. Newspapers and the AP with their regurgitations of liberal agenda crap for Obama worshipers have done themselves in by not reporting actual news and shining a light in the dark places of the political world? Who cares if Obama is playing golf? That is not news!

Hard to believe the Chicago Trib wouldn´t be willing to pay the extra $5 million for the AP´s virulently leftist output. But then, Reuters is nearly as hardcore Stalinist in its viewpoint, so I suppose the Trib sees it as no great loss.

The bitter clingers are letting go of orgs like AP but it´s too late. Not only is AP heading for the dust bin but so is the Trib and all the others.

I put my last copy of the Dallas Morning Lies Distortions and Half-Truths in the dust bin in 1993. Many have followed suit. Today, the only people buying that rag are people who want to have something to put in their recycle bin.

The pendulum swings.

This Babylon among the MSM may be the actual plan:

1. MSM reduced to irrelevence [by their own perfidy];

2. A vacuum occurs in national, credible news information;

3. The ZeroNews Foundation steps up to become the defacto information source, and eventually, the only one.

The First Ammendment is thus gently dispatched.

You have to acknowledge the problem the Ass. Press finds itself with. The left side of the "Journalism" ship, AKA Titanic is crowded far beyond capacity causing the ship to circle left continuously, hitting one iceberg after another. With everyone singing the same song and peddling the same distortions and lies it is difficult to stand out from the herd.

When Ass. Press disappears no one will even miss them. One less voice in the choir.

That´s fine.

Sensible people learned long ago that nothing reported by the Associated Press can be trusted.

Of course, the same could be said of Reuters, or NBC "News", or ABC, CBS, CNN, PMSNBC, NPR, PBS, the New York Slimes, the WhiteWash Post, etc., etc., etc.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party. Last week, in a story that appeared the day before Aaron was honored

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
