- LED TV Reviews (TopTenReviews.com)
"Buying an LED is no small purchase. It is important to know what to look for when shopping for a new TV. Your TV says a lot about who you are. It is the most visible piece of your home theater system, and the only part that you actually see during your movie. While it is turned off it is very much a piece of your room’s décor. It is wise to consider these and other factors when selecting a new LED TV." 06-10

From this, the High Definition Multi-media Interconnect or HDMI standards were developed." 06-10

- LED TV Power Consumption (CNET.com)

In the last couple of years, plasma TV makers have made some progress--Panasonic claims improvements of 30 percent yearly, for example--but they still can't compete with LCD for energy efficiency." 06-10

- War and Internet News (EditorandPublisher.com - Outing)
"While TV anchors started repeating themselves and filling air time with their own theories when there was a temporarily lull of new information, the Web with its hundreds of available news channels offered a respite when TV news started to flounder."
"Indeed, I found myself annoyed with the seemingly singular perspective of the major U.S. television network newscasts. I hungered for some alternative perspectives that TV failed to provide. If I was forced to choose between my TV or my PC for the duration of this war, I'd keep the computer. " 4-03
- War and Internet News - An Alternative (EditorandPublisher.com - Bowen)
"Long ago, print journalism found its place in the new order of things by providing a cooler, more deliberate perspective on the events that our readers may have seen for themselves on TV. Now in the Iraqi conflict, online journalism may have found its niche too, by blending the depth of print and the immediacy of broadcast with the global instincts of the Internet." 4-03
- Democracy, Media, and Deregulation (ReclaimtheMedia.org - Lawson)
"The most likely result of dropping our cross-ownership ban would not be the creation of small, geographically-focused media firms sharing resources to create high-quality, regionally accountable content. Rather, such deregulation, combined with loosened broadcast ownership caps, would throw open the door to the expansion of already-huge national networks with the market power to choke out or absorb small competitors, with programming decisions emitted from centralized headquarters. (Imagine a faintly localized version of USA Today being the only newspaper and CNN the only TV or radio broadcast news source available to a community)." 4-03
- Democracy, Media, and Deregulation (Alternet.org - Schmelzer)
"Indeed, the issue of centralized news will be exacerbated after the FCC's June 2 vote on ownership. On the chopping block are six regulations that attempt to preserve a diversity of voices and local control of media – from the ban on owning both a TV station and newspaper in the same market to limits on how many radio stations one group can own in a given area."
"Should the FCC vote to weaken these protections – as expected – more of our airwaves will be concentrated in the hands of a few corporations."
Nichols says, " ' We still have a highly regulated media. The only thing that is changing is that it's now being regulated in the interests not of democracy or the people, but larger corporations.' " 4-03
- Nelson, Ricky (RockHall.com)
"As a rock-and-rolling teenager on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, he practically grew up in the nation's living rooms. In the recording studio, having landed a contract based on his TV stardom, he more than made the grade. No mere rock and roll pretender, Nelson was the real thing: a gentle-voiced singer-guitarist with an instinctive feel for the country-rooted side of rockabilly. And he had exquisite taste in musicians, utilizing guitarist James Burton (formerly a Dale Hawkins sideman, later an Elvis Presley accompanist) as his secret weapon in the studio." 9-03
- 02-06-04 Medicare Ads Opposed (CBS News)
"Several Congressional Democrats have asked the General Accounting Office to investigate the use of taxpayer money on ads publicizing recent changes to Medicare."
"The Department Health and Human Services, which oversees Medicare, announced the $12.6 million ad campaign this week and unveiled a 30-second television commercial that anchors the effort. The ad proclaims: 'Same Medicare. More benefits.' "
"Charles Rangel of New York — complains that the ad misleads when it says "It's the same Medicare."
Democrats contend Medicare is not the same. The new law includes restrictions on Medigap prescription insurance, introduces means-testing of premiums for supplemental or Part B Medicare and indexes deductibles for Part B to inflation. Neither the TV nor print ad mentions any of those changes." 2-04
- 03-03-04 Record U.S. Trade Deficit (CBS News)
"The United States registered a record $489.4 billion trade deficit for 2003 as a rebounding U.S. economy strengthened Americans' appetites for a wide range of foreign-made goods, including cars, clothing and TVs."
"Critics point to the deficits as evidence that the president's free-trade policies aren't working and are a factor in the loss of U.S. jobs."
"The latest snapshot of trade activity comes amid rising tensions over global trade and concerns about the flight, or outsourcing, of U.S. jobs to other countries. President Bush's chief economist, Gregory Mankiw, struck a political nerve earlier this week when he described the loss of U.S. jobs to overseas companies as 'just a new way of doing international trade.' "
"Painfully slow job growth in the United States is a political sore spot for the president and an issue that Democrats, seeking to capture the White House, like to point out to voters in an election year." 3-04
- 07-25-04 Democratic Convention - Its Importance (MSNBC News)
