Deacon Greg Kandra…

…used to work for CBS. He brings an interesting perspective because he knows enough about the news biz to intelligently comment on when there’s actual bias and when the Mark Twain Principle (Never attribute to malice what can be sufficiently explained by stupidity) applies. And even he throws his hands in the air and despairs [Read More...]

New Stupid Media Trick

Step 1: Arrange a debate between Richard Dawkins and Leading Catholic Prelate.
