The Crazy World of UH Leftist TV I
This cartoon only illustrates WINs taking it to the next level, and is meant to be funny.
As soon as they are able to transplant humor into liberals I'll let you know.
Screw the libs!
p.s. check your mail mister hater. There is something good in it that you will love. It would be great for the Blog if you can manage it.
Jessica, thanks for being a good sport about the stuff we've done about you. I know that it can be hurtful at times. Most of us on this blog are ex-military, I'm a combat vet, combat wounded, and I've seen and "did" a lot of shit, and can get carried away in maintaining my sanity.
I know you are a beautiful person, hell, you are "hot," beer or no beer, and from now on I will concentrate on your journalism and make comments when warranted.
In your pre-production practices I would hope that WIN emulates major network productions with appropriate graphics and presentation.
And Jessica, make-up or no make-up, hair down or waved, there are guys out there that are watching, and I would love to see you shine come production time.
Elly, I am flattered about your offer for me to write for WIN, but with my time schedule it is just not possible. I would hope that your offer extends to other UH Conservatives out their who want to contribute. I would hope that WIN and the DC be receptive to the other point of view, and welcome them with open arms in the arena of sharing ideas. I lauded a Daily Cougar Conservative writer recently, and I come to find out that he was not welcomed at the DC so the story goes. I know we share different ideologies on campus, and there is no ballot box to shut us up. So we are stuck together.
Elly, I would hope that a Conservative News source or two would grace the bottom of the WIN website. That would be a small gesture to show UH Conservatives that WIN is willing to share both ideologies in their endeavor.
Melissa, I'm glad I could make you so "controversial," and thanks for being a sport. I knew that you were probably Catholic and not gay, but we just don't see to many Conservatives have what has become to be known as a "Brokeback Moment" like President Bush recently had. Your column just oozed fun that day.
We are a news organization committed to telling the whole truth in context. Ours is a convergent newsroom, publishing online, on air and through cable. Our stories focus on issues, not just events.
We begin with the fundamental fact that the commercial news media routinely ignore or under-cover a wide range of issues, sources and points of view. Low income households, working people, ethnic minorities, union members, women, gays, the young, the disabled and foreign nationals are usually marginalized by corporate news values. Executives, officials, businessmen, politicians and experts are the typical sources and subjects of mainsrteam news -- as if they represented the public in an unbiased and objective way.
Our idea, then, is to create a non-profit news outlet that is better balanced. By being free from advertising and corporate sponsorship, we don't have to maintain a buying mood nor go soft on the rich and the powerful. Our idea is to produce the "other" side of the news that is not being done by commercial news outlets and publications. At the same time, we are committed to the highest standards of journalistic excellent. Quality journalism means being accurate, fair and balanced. It means showing compassion and telling the truth to the full extent that we know it.
Students and faculty from the School of Communication at the University of Houston did the stories and media critiques that are published here. Many of our pieces were broadcast on 30-minute "Not-For-Profit" News shows, produced for our non-profit radio and cable channel partners. We are working with KPFT 90.1-FM, which is a 100,000-watt, listener-sponsored Pacifica Network radio station, and with Houston Media Source, which operates WTP-TV Cable Channel 17.
We have additional goals. We seek to put news issues in historical and comparative context. In effect, we are trying to unify the two dominant knowledge-producing institutions of our times: the media and the universities -- by supplementing investigative reports with the expertise of social scientists and historians.
While the Internet holds great promise as an instrument for human betterment and universal enlightenment, it is quickly becoming commercialized and dominated by increasingly concentrated corporate interests. We seek to counterbalance this trend by producing content for the free side of the Internet and by creating a unique environment for the youth, self-educated adults and working intellectuals of the world to come together to report news and share ideas.
We want to focus on the unanswered structural questions of our times. We are convinced that the mega-cities around the world have similar issues and problems. Mega-cities like Houston, Buenos Aires and Chongqing act as industrial power centers in each nation-state and as intellectual poles of development in their regions. We seek to ascertain what their problems are and to look for social experiments where some successes have been found. We've taken the name, World Internet News, to reflect our intent to focus on the common issues and problems in the mega-cities of the world.
Starting in Houston, we are creating an online news network produced by reporters and editors from leading public universities around the globe. We seek to become a 24/7 non-profit news service and public forum that delivers text, audio, video and graphics for free over the Internet. We want to recruit investigative teams to consist of five to 10 students working under a faculty editor-publisher. We want a cooperative arrangement where reporters and editors continue to own what they produce and keep the copyrights to their work.
Potentially with 200 universities and 1,000 to 2,000 reporters spread out to every country on earth, the World Internet News group could expand news coverage well beyond the scope of commercial news services, which concentrate their super-bureaus in the industrialized G-8 countries. WiN will be closer to its sources and thicker on the ground than existing news agencies. By representing ordinary people in each country and region on the planet, WiN aims to establish its niche among online news services.
Which brings up a point. If the liberals on this board are so upset about potential invasions of their privacy by the NSA that is tapping people to get the terrorists, why are the libs so concerned with learning the identities of the Conservatives who post on this board like me? Isn't that really inconsistent? You can hardly make the case that there is any national security interests in your attempts to draw us out. You should stick to your principles if that is what they are. You guys are either privacy advocates or you are not. You don't get to cherry pick when you will and will not be for privacy.
As a libertarian I am a strong privacy advocate, it is just that I realize that in some cases national security must trump some of our most cherished liberties because without our great nation and our lives, we will not be able to enjoy them.
So think about what I have written here. If you want some good stuff from me, do a positive, and quality story about one of our proud veterans organizations that I have mentioned, going on a berry picking mission for some member who has something awful to say about the president or the war will not be considered a positive story.
The Bell has rung and the truth has been tolled!
As to identities, my questioning your identities was solely based on your attempt to try and attribute comments on this link to members of WiN without knowing for sure. You're the one throwing around names in the public. I just think it is the people who's names your throwing around right to know who their accusser is. No hypocritical actions here. Just want a level playing field.
As to a story about veterans, I'll try and get someone to do one. No promises. The reporters are all working on other stories currently.
As to your NSA idea, it's been done. We could talk about Hoover and McCarthey's activities all day.
Got to run.
The Bell has rung and the truth has been tolled!
As to your NSA piece, I don't want another one-sided Democrat bashing piece. I think we can agree that any spying by the government, no matter who is in power, is good for the American people. If you are going to cite Democratic administrations, I expect fair time given to the Republican administrations.
The whole point would be to give people a comparison and let them make up their own minds and also if they want to get the source and read more themselves they can.
As for your piece it should mention things like it was Ronald Reagan who made the department of Veterans Affairs a cabinet level department to begin with in 1988. I think costs of the current war should be covered as well since that is being given for a reason for cuts everywhere in the government. I'm for smaller government anyway so most cuts are fine with me or don't even go far enough, even some cuts to healthcare for veterans who did not serve in wartime and have no service connected disabilities.
Even though some veterans benefits are being cut, or deductibles for healthcare are going up, realize that healthcare costs are skyrocketing for all Americans and that of course winning any current war is going to have to take precedence over benefits for veterans in some categories, especially those who did not serve in wartime and do not have service connected disabilities. The VA puts veterans in different categories for good reasons.
The Bell rings true and the truth has been tolled!
The Bell has rung and the truth has been tolled! Fuck the terrorists and their front companies who want to spy on the American ports!
As to the ports, just another example of Bush cronyism. It's pathetic. I've been reading his comments regarding it and I can't believe he thinks people actually believe him.
I hope John McCain is our next pres. I think he will be much better than the last several we've had. He should have been elected in 2000. Shit, I think Kinky Friedman would probably would do a better job.
