A new telephone survey by Rasmussen Reports found that voters believe that reporters are more liberal than they are and will hide damaging information to protect a candidate they personally favor.

Some of the findings:

48 percent believe that most reporters would hide any damaging information they learned to help the candidate they wanted to win, 29% disagree and 23% aren’t sure.

46% of likely voters believe feel that the average reporter is more liberal than they are, while 18% think reporters are more conservative. Twenty-two percent think their views are about the same and 14% are undecided.

L.A. Station That Dumped PBS Now Broadcasting Al Jazeera English
Conservatives who cheered the decision by a Los Angeles-based PBS affiliate to quit the system last year had their hopes for conservative programming dashed by the station’s decision in February to devote much of its airtime to the Qatar-owned Al Jazeera English.

KCET-TV, which had been a PBS affiliate for more than 40 years, cut its ties at the end of 2010 due to declining ratings and increased dues that were set to eat up 25% of the station’s budget in 2011.

To fill the programing gap left by their departure from the PBS system, the station started to carry programs from Al Jazeera English just as the political situation in Tunisia and Egypt started to erupt.

Say Goodbye to Los Angeles

Why is a soccer match in Pasadena, California a home game for Mexico?
By Patrick J. Buchanan
According to Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times, when the U.S. team took the field it was “smothered in boos. … Its goalkeeper was bathed in a chanted obscenity. Even its national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach balls.”

How did U.S. coach Bob Bradley respond to the reception his team received in America’s largest county? “Obviously … the support that Mexico has on a night like this makes it a home game for them.”

“A home game” for Mexico — in Pasadena?

“It’s part of something we had to deal with,” said the coach.

“I have never heard more consistent loud cheering for one team here,” wrote Plaschke, “from the air horns to the ‘Ole’ chant with each Mexico pass, all set to the soundtrack of low throbbing that began in the parking lot six hours before the game and continued long into the night.”

After the 4-2 win by Mexico, for the first time, the trophy award ceremony was held in the Rose Bowl. When the losing U.S. team was introduced, the stadium rocked again with boos.

Olson and Boies Say Same-Sex 'Marriage' Is a Civil Right, The Justice Department Disagrees
For the better part of a decade, the arguments made by proponents of same-sex “marriage” have relied on linguistic twists borrowed liberally from the terminology of the Civil Rights Movement. Usually, this is seen via the attempt to equate the fight to fabricate same-sex marriage with the struggles black citizens faced in receiving the constitutional privileges and protections rightly extended to all citizens of the United States. This includes shameful but increasing attempts to equate most Americans’ fidelity to marriage as akin to historic opposition to interracial marriage.

SHOCKING: Young Black, Hispanic Men Likely To Be Jobless, Imprisoned Or Dead
NORTH CAROLINA — According a new study by the College Board’s Advocacy & Policy Center, young Black and Hispanic men are heading down a socially downward spiral.

The study found that 51 percent of Hispanic males and 45 percent of African American males ages 15-24 will end up unemployed, incarcerated or dead.

ABC News Channel 3 in North Carolina Reports:

The College Board report on educational experience observed, “…Men, especially minority men, lag behind their female counterparts in college access, educational attainment and employment. Minority men outpace their female counterparts only in negative post-secondary outcomes: unemployment, incarceration and death.”


In order to accomplish President Obama’s goal of the United States retaking its position as the world’s best educated nation, improvements must be made in the rate men of color enroll in and graduate from college, the report stated.

Look who's launching anti-tea-party group

And you thought you were through with Van Jones ...

A new movement led by communist revolutionary group founder Van Jones seeks to counter the tea party while petitioning for a progressive agenda that includes "making Wall Street and the super-rich pay their fair share."

The organization, dubbed "The American Dream Movement," is partnered with a slew of radical groups funded by billionaire George Soros.

The movement was introduced using subversive tactics, particularly a hoax Youtube video in which it appeared the ticker outside News Corporation's Manhattan headquarters had been hacked and reprogrammed with an anti-Fox News script calling for revolution.

The Soros-funded MoveOn.org admitted it set up fake identities for the alleged hackers and even released a misleading video in which a man, with his face disguised, purported to confess he was behind the Fox News hacking.

Last Thursday, Jones officially launched his "American Dream Movement," at a New York City event co-sponsored by MoveOn.
