Media Bias, What Media Bias?

Andrew Malcolm comes out with a hilariously sarcastic reaction to the new Gallup Poll that shows that Americans, other than those who are ideologically aligned with the media itself, believe the media is biased and fundamentally dishonest because of its bias. Even if you disagree with my take on it, read it anyway for a masterpiece of sarcasm.

According to that fringe polling outfit named Gallup, a record 57% of Americans profess little or no trust in this country’s mass media to report the news fairly and accurately.Democrat president Barack Obama stuffing his face with a cheesesteak

What a crock!

They could have put it another way: An amazing more than four out of 10 Americans (43%) may perhaps believe most everything they read in the news or see on television.

As if there’s any difference between the two, Gallup reports, “Democrats and liberals remain far more likely than other political and ideological groups to trust the media and to perceive no bias.”

Interestingly, the same belief in the media’s credibility holds true for lower-income Americans and those with less education, the poll finds.

While the more affluent and better-educated citizens tend to perceive more bias in the media, as if being well-educated counted for anything in perspicacity.

5 Escaped Adult Prisoners, one Escaped 16 year old, Caught in New Orleans

Congratulations are in order to the police who rounded up these escaped prisoners with a minimum of fuss and mayhem.

It makes you wonder why they decided they had to run off to New Orleans. Maybe it’s the natural home of crooks, but I doubt it. Maybe it’s the cafe au lait and beignets at Cafe DuMond. Or maybe it’s Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club. Something drew them to New Orleans to be caught like moths in the flame.

But what I think is tragic is how a 16 year old who was in jail for burglarizing a car decided to escape from jail. He is now going to be in jail for much of his life, if not most of it, because of trying to escape. He’s also a good looking kid with long hair, which suggests why he was taken with the others. In any case, it’s a sad story for him.

Six inmates who escaped from the Lincoln County Jail late Monday
night were captured Wednesday morning in New Orleans after spending
just more than 30 hours on the run.

Lincoln County Sheriff Steve Rushing said his deputies, assisted
by the U.S. Marshals Service, apprehended the entire group in a
pair of raids at separate hotels in the Big Easy around 5 a.m. and
9:05 a.m. All six escapees are being held in the Jefferson Parish
Jail and could be extradited back to Lincoln County by Thursday, he
said.

The apprehended escapees include Ahmad R. Butler, 22, of 920
Chippewa St.; James R. Durr, 33, of 1620 East Nola Road; Austin R.
Hart, 16, of 338 Bogue Chitto Road; Bobby J. Hudson, 26, of 306
Brister St.; Justin S. Leake, 31, of 2883 Grandview Lane; and Chad
M. Wallace, 29, of 148 Wakefield Lane.

Butler is facing murder charges in the June 17 killing of
21-year-old Anthony Nichols of McComb, who was shot dead near a
convenience store on South First Street in Brookhaven.

Durr is charged with grand larceny of personal property, while
Hart is facing charges of burglary of a motor vehicle. Rushing said
Hart was being held with adult inmates because he was tried as an
adult in court, adding the Lincoln County Jail doesn’t hold
juveniles unless directed by the court.

The remaining three inmates face various drug charges. All were
awaiting trial.

Alexa Shrugged: Front-Alley Abortions

Nothing much has changed since the days of dangerous back alley abortions other than the doors by which pregnant mothers entered abortionists’ offices to have their babies killed and thrown away. They used to have to walk in the back door. Now it’s the front. But it’s still dangerous to the aborting mothers.

In Remembrance of Xhristo Planev, aka Kuko

This is a beautiful remembrance of a poor man that testifies to the unexpected effects that can emanate from the smallest, least celebrated of lives.

His real name was Xhristo Planev. He and one other man were my very best friends in Bulgaria for over 15 years. They died within three weeks of one another earlier this year. I attended the latter’s funeral but never got to visit with Xristo, or  even knew he was ill. While the other fellow, Dmitar, was a classic-rags-to-riches tale of never giving into “imperial communists”, also deserving of a story here, Xhristo was that crazy live-alone uncle no one ever wanted to show up for Thanksgiving dinner…except me.

Everyone called him Kuko, but I never did. He was always Xristo to me, and I think he appreciated it, as Kuko was more than just a diminutive nickname. It also carried a little stigma, I learned. (I’ll use it here only because it’s easier to spell.)

My first visit to Bulgaria, in 1995 was as a gun runner. Legal of course, but I was representing a US company hoping to buy various product at their national factory in the Balkan mountains. I had connections. So I was running back and forth for about four days. Across the street from my hotel was the Parliament, then behind it a magnificent cathedral named St Alexander Nevsky, and around it a great plaza which contained many interesting sites, along with a flea market that abutted on the parks. With a couple of hours to kill waiting for a car to pick us up, my arms specialist and I decided to visit this place. It is still there.
