Shakespeare’s Henry V had Warmongering Pundits Just Like USA Presidents Do Today!

The Columbia County Georgia public library allows me to download audio books to my Android devices. I’ve been listening to Shakespeare’s Henry V. In Act I, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bishop of Ely, Westmoreland, and Exeter encourage and advise the English King Henry V to claim the throne of France while maintaining control of Scotland. The full text is available online.

After reading the text, think about the pundits writing in the New York Times & Washington Post and speaking on NPR & CNN & NBC and try to remember when the last time you read or heard anybody speaking against militarismContinue reading

Support Tavis Smiley & PBS Against Zionist Attacks

I sent the following comment to the PBS Ombudsman Michael Getler. I encourage you to submit a comment supporting Tavis Smiley and PBS.

I only learned about the February 2, 2017 interview with Miko Peled on Tavis Smiley’s show this morning. I watched the episode. What Mr. Peled said is only shocking and extreme because many media outlets never allow critiques of Zionism. The tag “Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” at FAIR Media Watch is endless, yet worth reading.

I appreciated your response to the criticism of Mr. Smiley. I guess I just wanted to let you know that at least this viewer thought the segment was excellent.

 

Finally, it’s worth noting that the United States Department of State definition of anti-Semitism which CAMERA uses is designed to suppress criticism of Zionism and Israel. South Carolina is now attempting to force universities to apply it to on-campus activities. The inevitable result will be suppression of speech critical of Zionism and Israel. Continue reading

Listener Complaints Re: America Abroad “Global Energy and Innovations” Not Fully Addressed

Jeffrey Dvorkin
Ombudsman
America Abroad Media

Dear Mr. Dvorkin,

I have followed the issue raised by FAIR Media Watch regarding PRI‘s distribution of America Abroad‘s Global Energy and Innovations in April 2013. I appreciate your response, but as FAIR Media Watch points out, you failed to address the issue of disclosure of the show’s sponsors and you did not explain the editorial and production decisions which led to the sidelining of anti-fracking viewpoints.

Please update or add to your response to include these critical issues.

Sincerely,

Ayman Fadel
