Bias? CNN Headline, Story Call Those Opposed to Raising the Debt Ceiling…‘Wingnuts’ One news outlet that has been frequently criticized for liberal bias is going to have a hard time slithering its way out of this one.

Press Accuracy Rating Hits Two Decade Low Public Evaluations of the News Media: 1985-2009 Overview The public’s assessment of the accuracy of news stories is now at its lowest level in more than two decades of Pew Research surveys, and Americans’ views of media bias and independence now match previous lows. Just 29% of Americans say that news organizations generally get the facts straight, while 63% say that news stories are often inaccurate. In the initial survey in this series about the news media’s performance in 1985, 55% said news stories were accurate while 34% said they were inaccurate.

All too often, academics produce work that is either too abstract for a generally informed public, or they separate their scholarship from the myriad of issues and contemporary problems that shape everyday life in the United States and abroad.

Climate Alarmists Try To Redefine What A Hurricane Is So We’ll Have More Of Them Hurricane Joaquin as a category 4 storm in October 2015 This op-ed from IBD points out what we have been saying for years, that even though there is no trend in hurricane frequency of intensity, alarmists like Mashable’s Andrew Freedman are trying to get the definition of a hurricane redefined, so that the trend will become a positive one. Recall that hateful science blogger Greg Laden asked Should There be a Category 6 for Hurricanes? after super typhoon Haiyan hit in 2013, something that ABC news opined had “already happened” without one shred of evidence to back up that opinion for a Category 6 storm. They also note: Globalization and Trade Initiatives Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other.
