1) For the illiterate who cannot read, I will simply quote the first sentence of that article I linked:

"Top journalists from The New York Times, NBC News and CNN acknowledged Wednesday that, generally speaking, the national media have a liberal bias."

And the source of that graph is from Pew Research. And you consider Pew Research conservative? Unbelievable.

2) A person who judges anything based on its source, instead of the content, simply lacks the ability to think for him/herself, whether s/he is a liberal, a conservative, or an independent. In the case of a liberal there is a two-word term for this which starts with "useful".

3) Now I remember where I read about media's liberal bias:

http://freakonomics.com/2011/08/08/ti ... n-answers-your-questions/

Now don't tell me Freakonomics is right wing conservative nuts.

I remember reading somewhere that Republicans are far less likely to pursue journalist careers than Democrats so it's harder for the media to hire Republicans: they have to pay more because of lack of supply, therefore they end up hiring more Democrats.

Fox News (which I don't watch) is good at telling its audience what they want to hear. Sadly media on the left side have been following this route. Now I use Economist as my primary news source. It's much better to have a weekly update than a noisy daily update.

Me neither. I have found Bill O'reilly ok. I watched his debate with Jon Stewart (whom I dislike), but I don't watch Fox News at all because it's so successful at telling people (its audience) what they want to hear than any other media (though they are catching up, e.g., NYT).

I highly recommend The Economist. It's the only thing I read (actually, listen to) regularly for news and analysis. And being weekly it doesn't have the daily noise.

He didn't say they go to Republicans now. They may well become independents.

From reading various sources, it seems that money is being wasted on items not directed at improving education. Smaller class sizes doesn't seem to corrrelate to education improvements. The US has an extremely high spending on non-education items like Sports. The US does invest in early childhood education, but that program doesn't seem to reaped dividends as it has in other countries.

I think some of the things that are broken are:
- Little fiscal accountability. The billions of dollars of spend is managed by locally elected moms and pops. Local government isn't the right way to run a multi-billion dollar industry.
- No competition for teaching jobs. It seems there is little initial and ongoing standardized teacher training and assessment, performance incentives, career development, etc. The teaching industry seems geared to attract and retain the worst. Paying teachers more, but removing obstacles such as tenure might be the way to go.
- Misdirected parental participation - according to authors such as Amanda Ripley, parents in the US engage as much other countries in ed-related activities, but it's not directed to helping the kids learn. Cheering the school team at the weekend doesn't help the kid count.
- Bar is set too low. Lessons, homework, tests don't challenge the students to think critically, and are more designed to "learn-by-rote".

The focus should be on education and the educators, and not the excuses. Standardized student testing and more competition and choice provided by charter schools are steps in the right direction.



Great post. It's amazing a lot of people in this country whine about healthcare (which is valid) while at the same time deny that US education is in bad shape overall and find all kinds of excuses, like xenophobias blaming everything on immigrants.


If you're taking a poor shot at me-I'm just trying to figure out how we can improve our own inner city kids education. Most of the countries that send millions of their citizens to be educated, fed, housed, and have their medical problems fixed on our tax dollars are much less likely to do the same with illegals who visit THEIR country.

Suggesting that our own children get a better education is a bad thing AND xenophobic? Why don't you support the children of the USA; black, brown, white, red, and yellow?


No, not to you at all, nor to anybody else specific. Just a general impression on comments from all over the space these days since the 2012 PISA test results came out.

John Burke
New York

NYT Pick

DeBlasio cynically used his children as campaign props to get elected, creating a happy picture -- in 30-second TV spots -- of a well-adjusted family. (For those who say, all politicians use their families, quick, how many children does Andrew Cuomo have?) Now, in order to get out in front of this story, as they say in the PR business, no doubt because some journalist was tracking it down, he deploys his daughter in a preemptive media strike -- in a professionally produced video infomercial, no less. And puts it out on Christmas eve, the better to limit its exposure in news coverage, while having the video with its editorially unfiltered "confession" available to go viral through social media, garnering Big Bill sympathy instead of new or added scrutiny.

It would be hard to find an example of a major political figure more cynically -- or skillfully -- using his own children. Sarah Palin, perhaps, who sought to turn potential criticism of her as a parent to advantage with all sorts of psychobabble hooey that was, in fact, embraced by her most devoted fans. I expect something similar to happen here, with DeBlasio supporters fawning over the whole family as "brave" and "strong" in the face of adversity.

But he for sure wasn't going to give Sweeney the ability to fund free tuition money in the form of grants either for the illegal aliens.

Same thing on tenure reform. Christie didn't get everything he wanted, but the deal got done.

I wish our nation's chief executive would take a page from Christie's book in this regard.


There have been plenty of articles from the liberal's favorite newspaper, the New York Times, on how Obama not willing to do the things ordinary people do. Why is he so presumptuous? Is this the CHANGE people who voted for him had HOPED for?

I do NOT think this started with Obama. However it's his JOB to work with the Republicans which he failed. Clinton reached out to the other side and he succeeded. In his impeachment, a number of Republican congressmen voted no. If it were Obama who got impeached, how many votes from the Republicans you think he would get? Zero. If you don't reach out, you don't get your job done. It's that simple. It is politics.

If anyone wants to attack my understanding of anything without first understanding what I said, I don't think it's worth my timing arguing with this person. Right now I don't think you are doing that, just to let you know.
