Readers generally assume Abby can be trusted to provide traditional advice on all topics.</p> <br /> <p>However, a Culture and Media Institute analysis finds that Abby's advice on sexual issues frequently veers far away from traditional moral standards. Traditional morality teaches that sex should be limited to married, heterosexual couples, but Abby doesn't see it that way.</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/special-reports/down-dark-abby" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Special Reports Culture and Media Institute 2003 2007 abby abbys Abortion activity addressed adult adults advice advise ago asked baby behavior benefits Column Columns concerns culture daughter dear dressing education fact families family friend friends gay Gays girl giving health Homosexuality husband Infidelity information issues lesbians Letter letters life lover make Marriage married men moral morality mother organization organizations parenthood parents people pflag phillips planned Pregnancy pregnant premarital Prostitution protect reader readers received referred relationship response sex sexual sexually site stated stop support teen teens told traditional transmitted unmarried web wife woman Women wrong wrote year years young Mon, 10 Nov 2008 02:00:00 +0000 admin 31536 at http://mrc.org Media Mum on Barney Frank's Fannie Mae Love Connection http://mrc.org/media-myths/media-mum-barney-franks-fannie-mae-love-connection <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/jeff-poor">Jeff Poor</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Are journalists playing favorites with some of the key political figures involved with regulatory oversight of U.S. financial markets?</p> <br /> <p><br /><br /><br /></p> <br /> <p>     MSNBC’s Chris Matthews launched several vitriolic attacks on the Republican Party <a href="http://old.businessandmedia.org/articles/2008/20080918120353.aspx" target="_blank">on his Sept. 17, 2008, show</a>, suggesting blame for Wall Street problems should be focused in a partisan way.

An enormous company reveals its 'accounting problems.' The problems are found to be far worse than anyone realized. The CEO is forced to resign. Other high-ranking executives follow. The stock price begins to drop. Billions of dollars might be lost. The politically savvy CEO even has direct connections to a presidential administration.</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/special-reports/government-sponsored-enron" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Special Reports Business and Media Institute 2002 2003 2004 2005 202 567 abc abcs absentee absorb accounting administration advantages african american analysis analysts appears article asked attention attorney bail bankrupt banks beating began big billion board bonuses broadcast Brokaw Budget bush business buy calamity call called campaign capital carlson cbs CEO chairman charter chief citizens clinton close CNN collapse committee company companys congress congressional connections contributors corporate correct corrupt coverage created Credit criticized cushion day deal debacle dec Decline didnt director dollar dollars dream drop dropped earnings economic efforts employees energy enjoys enormous Enron enrons enterprise errors evening exchange executive executives experts explained explaining faced failure familiar fannie fannies fastow feb federal fiasco figures financial firms focus franklin freddie front future Gasparino gave generous Giant gorelick government greenspan gregory GSE GSEs guaranteed hasnt havens high Hispanic hits home homebuyer homebuyers homes House housing huge implicit implied including incredible inherently inquiries investigation jamie jan journal Journalists Kerry key landlords larger largest lay lexisnexis Loans lobbying lose loss losses mac made mae maes manage management March market medias million months mortgage mortgages national NBC network networks news nightly numbers obrien oct offered office officer options oversight overstated paid people percent perception period perspective peter pinkston policy political politically portfolio post president print private problems produced public put question raines rainess received regulator report reported reporter response resulted revealed rightly risky Scandal search secondary secretary sector share Shareholders show similar situation spent sponsored stock story street strong subsidy tax taxpayers term things ties Today tom tonight top treasury vacation ventures vice victims volatility wall washington waste week werent white wondered words work workers world worse year years york Sat, 02 Apr 2005 00:54:00 +0000 admin 30552 at http://mrc.org SUPERSIZED BIAS http://mrc.org/special-reports/supersized-bias <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/dan-gainor">Dan Gainor</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bmi/reports/2004/SUPERSIZED_BIAS_Executive_Summary.html">See Executive Summary </a></p> <br /> <p>It’s hard to turn on a television set and not be bombarded with news about fat — a new warning about the dangers of obesity, a new diet that lets you eat more while the pounds melt away, or the unveiling of a new drug that just might make you thin again.
