Film takes on right angle of Fox News Channel By Mark Jurkowitz, Globe Staff | July 14, 2004 Among media watchers, a debate has long raged about whether Rupert Murdoch's Fox News Channel is the "fair and balanced" antidote to pervasive liberal media bias that it claims to be in its promotion or a megaphone for spreading conservative dogma.

Relying on former Fox employees and contri

Weight loss product manufacturer Slim-Fast announced Wednesday it had dropped Whoopi Goldberg as its spokeswoman, following a controversy over sexually explicit comments she made last week at a fund-raiser in New York for presumptive Democratic nominee Sen.

BROAD THE NEW YORK TIMES The collapse of the Earth's magnetic field, which both guards the planet and guides many of its creatures, appears to have started in earnest about 150 years ago. The field's strength has waned 10 percent to 15 percent so far and this deterioration has accelerated lately, increasing debate over whether it portends a reversal of the lines of magnetic force that normally envelop the Earth. During a reversal, the main fie

Norah, Keith Toast Gram Musicians flock to California to remember rock's ultimate cult figure Pictures of Joshua trees and desert highways, and fans adorning cowboy hats, glittery suits and what must have been the largest collection of hipster western shirts in the state of California.

Powell was respected and was already chief of staff, he had the credentials, just switched to the republican party and was considering running for president, that was a political appointment, rice supposedly had the credentials but lately I'm not s
