“I wish there was someone who could watch over the news media, to keep them honest and report facts, instead of slanting the news articles and reporting opinions as ‘facts.’”
Oh no, not Nancy Grace again. She makes “Elvira”, the wicked witch of the West look like Mary Poppins. Isn’t it bad enough that CNN has Wolf Blitzer’s and Anderson Cooper’s faces in constant close up showing their feigned concern and angst while reporting on the Malaysian Airlines crash?

Now we are to climb in bed with Neo-Nazi’s in Ukraine (Svoboda, Patriots of Ukraine, Spilna Sprava, Afgantsy and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army to name just a few).
The last gasp of the Religious Right.

What the heck is our U.S. Sen. John McCain doing in Davos, Switzerland at some World Economic Conference.

If you were a comics fan in the early nineties, or even if you were just a comic book speculator that was grabbing up first editions while dreaming of an early retirement and putting your kids through college, then you’re probably already aware of the impact that Image Comics had on the comic industry – some of it very good, some of it really bad.
