New Year's Madness NEWSFLASH!!! Breaking? Study Finds Fox News Viewers Are The Most Misinformed from TPM Live Wire, to wit: The study found that daily Fox News viewers, regardless of political party, were "significantly" more likely than non-viewers to erroneously believe that:

  • Most economists estimate the stimulus caused job losses (12 points more likely)
  • Most economists have estimated the health care law will worsen the deficit (31 points)
  • The economy is getting worse (26 points)
  • Most scientists do not agree that climate change is occurring (30 points)
  • The stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts (14 points)
  • Their own income taxes have gone up (14 points)
  • The auto bailout only occurred under Obama (13 points)
  • When TARP came up for a vote most Republicans opposed it (12 points)
  • And that it is not clear that Obama was born in the United States (31 points)
The study also found that as exposure to Fox News increased, so did the misinformation. Once again, another poll that measures the effectiveness of propaganda! Haha! Thanks for stopping by for some REAL NEWS! Just ask the Brick TeeVee Crew for help if you're a recovering foxaholic. We're here because you're there. Remember last summer's WaPo "Top Secret America"? The latest installment is out! Monitoring America by Dana Priest & William M. Arkin @ WaPo. EIGHT BIG PAGES! Watch out Memphis! Search YOUR STATE to see which locales took in "antiterrierism" money at the "Top Secret" WaPo Map. Don't miss Cenk's interview with Julian Assange on MSNBC's Ratigan Show and news about PFC Bradley Manning at Speaking of WL says WikiLeaks: US Ambassador Planned "Retaliation" Against France Over Ban on Monsanto Corn Meanwhile the 111th Congress stuck around long enough for the Senate approves New START treaty and help for 9/11 first responders (LAT), Net NON Neutrality Keep Fighting for Real Net Neutrality at and a new Food safety overhaul faces obstacles (WaPo) while NPR tells us what happens to all those electronic gizmos you got yesterday in After Dump, What Happens To Electronic Waste? Other than that not much happened last week! Oh and we hope you saw the Lunar Eclipse on the 2010 Winter Solstice! If you missed it you'll have to wait until 2094! Experts are saying the haul by retailers on Friday may have been the biggest this year! Heck we think Sunday will beat that, when everything gets marked down 50-80% before it goes back to the warehouse or the Big Lots and TJ MAXX's of the country! Happy Scavenging! The Brick TeeVee Crew hopes you had a safe Holiday Season so far but it's not quite over yet as we'll be ringing in 2011 with cheap bubbly and college bowl games! We'll see you next year!

  • This Week (ABC) with Christiane Amanpour
    Fact Checking ABC's "This Week" at NPR "On the Media" - Jake Tapper, interim host of ABC's "This Week," liked the idea of fact-checking his guests' comments, so he set up a partnership with Politifact, a non-partisan fact-checking organization.

    This Week on The Best of Ring of Fire! December 25th, 2010
    • Joining us for the BEST of Ring of Fire this week: Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, who will discuss the growing problem of home foreclosures in America, and he’ll tell us what he is doing to help solve this epidemic.
    • The brilliant and controversial author, Sam Harris, surveys the topography of right and wrong in his provocative new book, “The Moral Landscape,” – and you’ll be amazed at what he’s discovered.
    • Author Frank Schaeffer will give us the inside story on how the corporatist wing of the GOP managed to convince evangelical voters that major corporations are actually living the words of Jesus Christ better than political candidates.
    • And author Ari Berman will be here to talk about how the Democratic Party has abandoned the great organizing campaigns that Howard Dean crafted over the last few years, and why we won’t be able to win elections if we don’t reconstruct it.
    A special note: As David Bender announced he has decided to leave Ring of Fire at the end of the year in order to work on several new projects, including a book and a documentary film. This week we’ll be announcing our newest torch-bearer in the Ring of Fire – and you won’t want to miss the big news! (HINT: His name begins with Sam Seder!

    • VIDEO! Big Business Dupes Evangelicals Into Voting Republican Millions of American voters were duped during the midterm elections this year – most obviously the Religious Right voters. They had been told that they were voting for Republican candidates who wanted to take America back from the liberal class who were trying to turn America away from the fictitious religious roots that they believe America was founded on. Little did they know that the people behind this effort were billionaire industrialists and CEOs, who have no intention of bringing religion back to America – their only goal is to increase their profits. Mike Papantonio discusses how this all happened with Frank Schaeffer, author of the best-seller, “Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back.”

    Listen at Antiwar Radio
    Glenn Greenwald Dec 20, 2010: Glenn Greenwald, blogger and former constitutional lawyer, discusses the inhumane detention conditions of accused WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning; eyewitness accounts of Manning’s deteriorating mental and physical condition; studies that show severe isolation has long term psychological consequences and is akin to torture; the government’s domestic “shock and awe” campaign of fear and intimidation against dissidents and whistleblowers; why Manning’s draconian imprisonment may be a negotiating tactic to coerce testimony against Julian Assange; and why the government is now considering conspiracy charges against Assange instead of using the problematic Espionage Act of 1917. LISTEN HERE (mp3) 21:16
    Gareth Porter Dec 23, 2010: Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses the increasingly brutal US tactics in the Kandahar offensive in Afghanistan including the razing of entire villages; how the US breaks self-imposed counterinsurgency rules when the going gets tough; the realization of mid-level officers and Petraeus himself that a tough new COIN strategy is as likely to fail as previous versions; and how the National Intelligence Estimates on Afghanistan and Pakistan reveal that US success in Afghanistan is wholly dependent on Pakistan’s rejection of the Taliban – which is exceedingly unlikely.
