So far this election, the media are aiming for Texas-sized attacks on that state's Gov. Rick Perry.</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/commentary/media-mess-texas-gov-rick-perry" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Commentary MRC Business almost Comment perrys Wed, 14 Sep 2011 22:15:00 +0000 admin 29961 at http://www.mrc.org Focusing on Cindy McCain's "Dig" at Michelle Obama, Not Obama's Lack of U.S. Pride http://www.mrc.org/articles/focusing-cindy-mccains-dig-michelle-obama-not-obamas-lack-us-pride <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The Times barely focused on Michelle Obama&#039;s statement showing a lack of pride in her country: &quot;...for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.&quot; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/clay-waters">Clay Waters</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Michelle Obama announced at a Wisconsin rally for her husband that"for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country."</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/articles/focusing-cindy-mccains-dig-michelle-obama-not-obamas-lack-us-pride" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Articles TimesWatch BarackObama Campaign2008 CindyMcCain Comment JohnMcCain MichaelCooper MichelleObama NewYorkTimes NYTimes TimesWatch TimesWatch.org Wisconsin Wed, 20 Feb 2008 16:28:00 +0000 admin 6012 at http://www.mrc.org Trade Secrets http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/trade-secrets <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/charles-simpson">Charles Simpson</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bmi/reports/2005/Trade_Secrets_Executive_Summary.html">See Executive Summary </a></p> <br /> <p>CNN promotes “Lou Dobbs Tonight” as “news, debate and opinion.” But it doesn’t explain that Dobbs defines those words his own unique way. “News” is often economic distortions presented as fact. “Debate” doesn’t always mean that both sides get to comment.
