A discussion of contemporary issues in media ethics, with olives and a twist. Made with only the freshest ingredients, shaken, stirred and poured over ice. I should also mention that I do like the odd, occasional martini. Bombay Sapphire gin and Lillet, dry and plenty of salty olives. Welcome to this cocktail of journalism and alcohol. A fine combination!

Another American media boondoggle?

Media Matters - Savage on the "progressive movement": "the brownshirts of today ... the same rabble that brought Hitler to power"

American shock-jocks never cease to amaze and astound. They get paid fat salaries to p*ss from a great height on anyone and everyone. This particular savage, Michael Savage, is apparently famous for aligning Hillary Rodham Clinton with the Nazis and now he's labelled the "progressive" movement in America as the "new brownshirts". He claims to be a student of history, but it's not history as we know it.

This link - to the Media Matters for America website - documents the savage history of Mr Savage. Not suitable for impressionable young minds!
