The Media’s Pitching Deck of Conflicting Standards

120002 01/14/2012

It’s time to revisit the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process or respect for habeas corpus. This is a provision that must be repealed as soon as possible or simply declared unconstitutional. Jim Babka from www.downsizedc.org joins us.

Mid-show John reports a number of significant news stories unfolding this week.

Then we’re on to issues of free speech with a look at the growing effort to penalize criticism of Islam by preventing a definition of the relationship between Islam and terrorism. Former CIA officer Claire Lopez at the Center for Security Policy (www.csp.org) guests on the program.

John’s boralogue frames the show for today with a breakdown of how the media’s constant double standard woks, including rule changes when circumstances don’t suit them.
