Question of the Day
Pronounced and persistent liberal bias still flourishes in the press, and now citizen critics can weigh in on the phenomenon. The Media Research Center is asking concerned readers and viewers of such fare to vote on the “Worst Media Bias of 2010,” in 15 unsavory categories. The public online ballot is open until 3 p.m. EST on Thursday; find it at www.mrc.org. The choices will be announced Monday.
SIGN OF THE TIMES
The U.S. Postal Service has compiled “Let It Snow,” its own CD collection of Christmas tunes that includes Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme and eight other crooning holiday heavies. Yes, it is for sale for $9.74, along with stamps and a special-edition priority mail box emblazoned with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Hermey the Elf. The DVD of the same 1964 animated TV classic is also for sale.
“People don’t usually think about going to the post office to buy stocking-stuffers or last-minute gifts,” said Tim Healy, vice president of retail products, who deems the prices “great.”
