And now some fresh pickings from the political grapevine.
The coverage of two controversial videos tells us a lot about media inconsistency.
First the ads from the National Rifle Association.
And the Center for Reproductive Rights.
-- the president's Q it's more important.
-- -- he's skeptical about putting an armed security news when these kids are protected by armed guards at your school.
And local favorite.
The bigger programs and hearted tribute -- ever forget our anniversary.
It turns out that the coverage of these two videos was quite skewed.
The NRA ad mentioning president Obama's children.
Was referenced 188.
Times in major newspapers and 162.
Times on TV shows.
While the CRR baby video appeared.
On just four shows all of them on this network.
The Media Research Center tells fox quote the Center for Reproductive Rights may consider abortion -- -- laughing joke.
But Americans aren't laughing either of the 55 million babies who have been murdered the lack of media coverage of this despicable ad.
Here's a case where it's worth taking a second look at the numbers before you -- another report.
Al-Jazeera noted an Oxfam study that said that -- 240.
Billion dollar net income of the 100 richest billionaires of 2012.
Would end poverty four times over.
They did so uncritically without noting the numbers don't add up.
Global issues dot org says that nearly half the world three billion people lives on less than two and a half dollars per day.
So if you took Oxfam at its war.
Like Al-Jazeera did it would take a quarter of the 240 billion or sixty billion dollars to end world poverty.
That works out to only twenty dollars per person the trouble list.
That represents just eight days of living at the current two and a half dollars a day rate.
Finally the number of federal employees today is nearly equal to the entire population of the US in 1776.
White House dossier dot com notes the currents and civilian federal workforce.
Excluding civil federal federal workforce excluding postal workers.
The Census Bureau.
Estimates the population of 1776.
Was about two and a half million George Washington had only a thousand federal workers total.
Well President Obama has added 200004.
Years -- a lot of numbers and scrape on.
