The Joel Osteen Hoax

Another Reason To Teach Your Family Media Wisdom By Natalie Fertig, Public Relations Editor In the age of Twitter, Facebook, and mobile devices, news can spread quicker than it can be substantiated. In most cases, news outlets are quick to substantiate or discredit rumors and random tweets, but sometimes things slip through the cracks. Such was the case with Monday’s Joel Osteen Hoax.

Imagine a film which looks like it is aimed at kindergarten children (MCA-Universal has even placed articles in national kindergarten school magazines), yet is full of sex, violence and foul language, some coming out of the mouths of little children.

Framed by the ’81 and ’84 riots in Casablanca (when people demonstrated their opposition to the war in the Western Sahara, especially to the existence and treatment of political prisoners), its aim is to make people aware of the much ignored political situation i… Continue reading

This relentless attempt to expose these evils almost captures the essence of man’s sinfulness, but more often seems like sitting in a dentist office getting a root canal without any Novocain. Matt Damon does an incredibly good job of playing Mark Whitacre, a Ph.D. biologist and rising busines… Continue reading
