Media Monitor (Feb. 5)

A radio story that was too good to check, networks playing ratings tricks and the Muppets take on Fox News.

    Why is the podcast gone? For a while only the first segment was made available, then the full program came back and now it is just gone. What gives? I have CNN Intl on able here in Germany but the show is unfortunately not shown on CNN Intl.
    Thank you

      I was also at the Crunchup to announce our own new Twitter aivertdsing model called Adtweets – which is a new ad-platform that allows established ad-networks to leverage the power of the retweet (something we feel we have extensive knowledge within.) by allowing current display adverts to gain a retweetable element. If you want to read the full details we have a separate post.

      In the US over half of the program was pre-empted on CNN by the live coverage of a speech by President Obama. CNN might be holding much of this week's program for re-broadcast next week and thus changed the podcast too.

    The result of all this is that from now on Breast Cancer charities will have to be either pro-abortion or anti-abortion, and 50% of the population will refuse to participate in one or the other's events

    Why was the podcast for this week only 15 minutes long?

    I liked how you had a woman in between 2 men (you and Matt Lewis) to discuss the Komen politically motivated decision to leave 170,000 POOR women without cancer screenings. You claimed that the liberal media caused the outrage. No, Mr. Kurtz. Women and the men who love them, see them mutilated, suffer and sometimes die were not manipulated. Women (right, left and center, pro-life (conception, death and all the stages in between) were outraged that this decision was motived by Right-wing extremeists who seem to think they have the right (and only they) to an opinion that informs public and private policy.
