Oops! MSNBC screws-up screen scrolls

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow Goofs and gaffes are bound to happen to any TV news crew. But those news networks that scroll words across the bottom one-third of the screen – sometimes referred to as “chyrons,” after a leading company that makes digital broadcast graphics – are just asking for trouble. Take, for example, MSNBC’s coverage of France’s 2012 presidential election. The video feed revealed former French President Nicolas Sarkozy campaigning against a blue background emblazoned with the s ...

Labour Attacks Cameron on EU Budget, but Forgets Its Own Support for Huge Waste

Oct 25 2014 6:53am CDT | Source: Big Government

Whilst the Prime Minister was defiantly telling European Leaders that Britain would not be paying an extra £1.7bn on top of our huge contribution to the EU budget, all Labour could come up with was mealy mouthed attacks on the Strasbourg Parliament. Arch-Europhile Richard Corbett MEP, who was reelected to the European Parliament after losing to the BNP in 2009, chose to cover Labour’s tracks over its voting record on the European budget ...

Britain's Pubs are Dying, Only Radical Measures Can Save Them

Oct 24 2014 10:06am CDT | Source: Big Government

I have been banging the drum for a long time now about how successive governments have let down the leisure and hospitality industry by refusing to ‘think outside the box.’ By ‘thinking outside the box’, I am referring primarily to Value Added Tax – or VAT as we all know it. Certain sectors of the hospitality and leisure industry, such as pubs, have been in the doldrums for over a decade. Indeed, a massive 10,000 have closed since 2002. This is particularly sad be ...

The crisis, alibi of the weak, energy of the strong

Sep 23 2014 7:51am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

When I hear a former President of the French Republic dare say, and have his lieutenants explain away, that only a major economic crisis made it impossible for him to achieve the reforms he was planning, I cannot help but to be very angry. First, because the rare reform measures he has led were undertaken precisely because he was forced, by the crisis, to act, in a wholly inadequate way, on pensions; and manage, with a high degree of efficiency, the rescue of the European banking sys ...

When president Obama repeated what has become a ritual for every president since George Bush the Elder and from the White House announced a new war on Iraq, the question that should have come to everyone's mind is, "exactly what Middle East success story gives the US both the credentials and credibility to intervene there?" Decent people around the world are revolted by the cruelty shown by ISIL -- not just the sophisticated video productions of the brutal beheadings of una ...

Libya has been labelled a “nest of terrorists”, as France warns that the country is becoming a hub for terrorism on Europe’s doorstep, and has called on the international community to once again intervene, The Local has reported. “The south is a sort of hub for terrorist groups where they come to re-supply – including with weapons – and re-organise.

Obama: Mr. "We Don't Have A Strategy Yet" Does the Troubled NATO Summit

Sep 5 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The UK's Cardiff, Wales is the place where Doctor Who is produced. Which makes it a fine location for the NATO summit. Largely an exercise in fantasy, like the longest-running science fiction show on the planet, NATO, since the end of the Soviet superpower erased the Cold War fear of a Red Army surge through the heart of Western Europe to the Bay of Biscay, has been an institution in search of a new mission and an accident waiting to happen. Which brings us to Libya, and the Ukrai ...
