Not-So-Liberal Media

I have been insisting for quite some time now that the so-called “liberal media” is nothing of the sort – the media’s corporate ownership has resulted in a consistently pro-Republican bias in both stories and narrative. Even worse, this bias has begun to spread into entertainment programming, such as Fox’s popular series “24″, which has legitimized both torture and the use of the word “nukular.” I just looked at this fall’s lineup of new shows, and the trend is clearly accelerating. See for yourself:

CBS:
Everybody Loves Lee Raymond
CSI: Taxachusetts
Survivor: DC,
hosted by Steve King
Big Brother

NBC:
Triumph Of The Will & Grace
The (Oval) Office
Shrubs
Fear Factor

ABC:
Extreme Makeover: Iraqi Hospital Edition
According To George
NSA’s Funniest Home Videos
Hope & Faith

Fox:
Family Values Guy
So You Think You Can Preznit
Malcolm In The Middle East
King Of The Hill

UPN/WB:
Afghanistan’s Next Top Model
Kill More Girls
Veronica Mars, Bitches!

Mostly B&W Convention Center Photoblogging

Time for me to see what my new 10-20mm ultra-wide zoom lens can do. Here are some already-taken photos in the meantime – see if you can spot the theme.


Inside the bowels of the Convention Center.


Looking out from the bowels of the Convention Center.


Sort of, um, off to the side of the bowels of the Convention Center.
