Could it be that much of the talk we've heard about diversity of viewpoints was just an excuse to make it easier to take over the institutions of society? And now that long-held values have been largely discarded, it is often no longer convenient to even mention the subject. Political correctness has taken the place of diversity. But one Indiana University still values academic freedom enough to hire an astronomer well-known for his creationist views.Spider Man Actor Suggests Exploring the Hero's Gay Side

October 06, 2012 02:23 PM PDTMovie Review: The Way
October 06, 2012 01:57 PM PDT
I was news director of a radio station for almost 10 years, trained by a future anchor of National Public Radio. During that time I won 16 awards from Associated Press and the Radio/TV News Directors Association. I've also hosted talk radio and cable television programs and worked as assignment editor for a network TV affiliate. I currently concentrate most of my journalistic energies on videos and podcasts. I want to tell the stories we need to hear that are conveniently ignored by the mainstream media. I feel that the way you deliver a message can be almost as important as the content, because it reflects on its credibility. In our society too much effort goes into promoting consumerism and not enough into championing the really important things.
