January 08, 2009

Media Bias Was Top Cultural Event in 2008, Group Asserts Movieguide®, a family guide to movies, entertainment and culture named media bias as the top cultural event in 2008, spokesman and founder Dr. Ted Baehr said today. “Independent researchers (such as the Pew Research Center) have confirmed that the national news media was biased two to one for Obama and against McCain in the presidential elections,” Dr. Baehr said. “Even liberals like Geraldine Ferraro, a Hillary Clinton supporter, and the comics at Saturday Night Live recognized the media’s fawning support for Obama’s candidacy. “What people may not realize, however,” Dr. Baehr added, “is that the media in 2008 was also biased against faithful Christians, espe...

How To Protect Yourself From Cyber Attacks by Dr. Ted Baehr
January 06, 2009

Recently, we suffered a major criminal cyber-attack on MOVIEGUIDE(r) and the Christian Film & Television Commission. A close friend and donor alerted us to the distribution of a number of blog postings that were supposedly from our organization but, in fact, were links to pornography, including sadomasochistic homosexual content. When we tracked the bogus links, they directed users not to our site on YouTube but to an intentionally deceptive imitation site. While we do have a MOVIEGUIDE(r) site on YouTube, in addition to Movieguide.org, the phony site included a picture of Dr. Ted Baehr alongside some very salacious and occult material, material on scientology, and hardcore S&M homosexual pornography. As soon as we discovered ...
 

 
How To Cut the Federal Deficit by $75 Billion
December 17, 2008

Editor’s Note: Michael McManus is the author of "Ethics & Religion," a syndicated opinion column that appears in many US publications. Mike is also the founder and president of "Marriage Savers," a non-profit organization that prepares couples for marriage. This article is reprinted by permission. Though the federal deficit approaches $500 billion and Congress authorized a $700 billion bailout package, both John McCain and Barack Obama have only proposed tax cuts and spending programs that will vastly widen the deficit. How about a strategy that could cut the deficit by $75 billion? More importantly, it could prevent a half million children from seeing their parents divorce each year – five million fewer in a decade. Divorce is...
 

 
The Key to Real Media Wisdom
December 17, 2008

The key to media wisdom is intelligence. Intelligence, as I’ve noted in the past, is not your IQ. Rather, it is the ability to learn from other sources so that you can grow into a discerning, thoughtful, Godly person. In the parlance of the CIA, intelligence is knowing where the weapons of mass destruction are or are not. It is not your bright idea of where they may or may not be. Sadly, however, multiculturalism, pluralism and political correctness have undermined intelligence and sold us the bill of goods of experiential learning. Experiential learning was a dismal failure when it was tried in the 1960s. It means that you have to try things yourself to find out if they’re good or bad. The ultimate conclusion of experiential learnin...
 

 
New Documentary Offers What May Be the Real Reasons Behind the World’s Current Economic Collapse
December 17, 2008

Many people in America, especially people active in the upper echelons of Wall Street and the power centers in Washington, D.C., are in panic mode concerning the recent economic meltdown this fall. Apparently, they are so panicked that America elected the most radical liberal ever to run for president. A new video documentary just may tell the real reasons behind the current economic crisis. And, it doesn’t point the finger at greedy investors and bankers on Wall Street. DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER: THE DECLINE OF THE HUMAN FAMILY is a well-produced, powerful warning about the dying population groups throughout much of the world and the dire consequences of that terrible trend. In the movie, scientists and social scientists from Harvard, the Un...
 

 
The Mass Media President
December 17, 2008

The mass media creates the culture, and the mass media definitely created the Barack Hussein Obama who was elected on Nov. 4, 2008. As Newsweek’s Tammy Haddad reported on Nov. 4, Chevy Chase explained that, when he was on “Saturday Night Live” in the 1970s, he went after then President Gerald Ford, portraying him as a bumbling, inept man who couldn’t chew gum while walking down the stairs (See: http://blog.newsweek.com /blogs/tamcam/archive/2008/11/04/chevy-chase-and-his-presidential-memories.aspx). The image stuck. This time, they went after Gov. Sarah Palin, portraying her as a know-nothing airhead from Alaska, even though she has much more experience than Barack Obama. In contrast, Obama was portrayed as a decisive, charismat...
 

 
Redeeming Academia
December 17, 2008

There are several critical spheres of influence that need to be redeemed by Christians in order to set the culture on a more civilized path. One is the area where MOVIEGUIDE® is working, the mass media. Another is government. And, another is academia. There are several groups working in the academic world to evangelize, to disciple and to influence the institutions shaping the minds of our youth. One of these is the Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies: An International Journal of Interdisciplinary and Interfaith Dialogue. JIS publishes academic papers that explore the human condition in light of Christian understanding. It has published several articles about our work and articles by us. It goes deeper to look into the global economy, I...
