What Media Bias? Nothing to See Hear, Just Rioting Youths…

Here is a famous example of confusing an immigration policy with a suicide pact. 

The BBC title is quaint enough, “Swedish city hit by youth riots.”  A bit down the article we learn that “the trouble was linked to the closure of an Islamic centre” and that this is an “immigrant neighbourhood.”  

Of course the city is Malmo and the riots are occuring specifically in Rosengard.  Mark Steyn of National Review points out that this is the most Muslim city in Sweeden.  Ah ha!  Now we are getting somewhere.  

This part of town is so dangerous that emergency services do not respond to calls without a police escort.

The Pew Research survey was released on July 18.  Despite Obama’s push for evangelical votes and the support he has gained evangelicals like Tony Campolo, he is polling in line with Sen. John Kerry and below Vice President Al Gore.  Any theories on why?  For the full report, click here.

I’ve found a lot of arguments over the years actually boil down to economics.  Unfortunately, people are willing to say so much about it when they understand so little.  Dr. Walter Williams offers a great primer via his weekly column.  Learn and enjoy…  Actually, you can print these all out, staple them together, read them and get a better economics education than 95% of the living world. 

Rasmussen reports that 49% of voters believe reporters will try to help Barack Obama win the presidency.  Odd, who would have ever guessed?
