Ideas For Reporters Struggling To Cover Planned Parenthood

By Mollie Hemingway - Posted at The Federalist: "Compare, for instance, what happened in the last month with coverage of Confederate flags. The controversy over the flag arose after the man charged in the Charleston church shooting was pictured with a Confederate flag. Coverage was media-led and media-stoked..." Many years ago I interviewed for a reporting job covering government waste, fraud and mismanagement. The interview went well and my future employers mentioned that they’d had trouble keeping the position filled as many reporters had trouble coming up with story ideas. They wondered if that would be a problem. I thought they were joking, so I chuckled. But they were entirely serious. I thought of that when looking at media coverage of the Planned Parenthood scandal . The media seem to be really struggling to come up with any story ideas for how to cover this story. A few reporters wrote an initial story on the undercover video that caught the senior director

From the Liberal Left To the Loony Left They All Hate Confederate Flags And Symbols

By Al Benson Jr. - Posted at RevisedHistory: "Folks, it should be starting to be apparent, and we have got to get it though our heads–the religious and political left is at war with us, our faith, and our culture, and if we keep going on the way we have been, we will hand them the victory by sheer default. ..."

Most Southern folks don’t begin to grasp this. They need to.

Is “Being Offended” Over Confederate Symbols the New National Pastime?

By Al Benson Jr. - Posted at RevisedHistory: As my wife and I pulled into the parking lot of the grocery store where we do our shopping this morning I noticed a pickup truck parked in the lot with a Confederate Naval Jack on a pole, stuck in the back of the truck. The flag had a yellow smiley face on it, and around the smiley face was written: “If this flag offends you then you have made my day.” While I probably would not have said it quite that way, I can understand the sentiment of the flag owner. I might have said “If this flag offends you then you need a history lesson” or something to that effect, which would have been a true statement. As a Christian, I don’t intentionally set out to “offend” anyone, but I will, to the best of my ability, seek to tell the truth and if that offends someone, then that’s just the way it is. Speaking the truth in love still offends those who don’t want the truth or who don’t want others to have it. I have watched this past couple weeks (no
