Liberals in love - Interview with Bernie Goldberg - Bill Steigerwald

Award-winning network TV reporter Bernard Goldberg first hit pay dirt in the book world with "Bias," his 2001 best-seller exposing how the news we saw was distorted by the liberal bias of the journalists he worked with during his long career with CBS News. Several media books later, Goldberg is back with "A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media." The book, which went on sale Jan. 26, indicts mainstream print and electronic journalists not for having liberal biases, but for becoming open and unapologetic activists for Obama.

Pets of the Week - Feb. 5, 2009

These sweet little girls are black and white domestic shorthairs, and they were born in October, 2008. Their mom was a stray who wandered under the porch of the home of CCHS supporters to deliver here babies. Once the babies were discovered, they were moved into the house until they could be weaned from their mom and turned over to CCHS. As tiny babies, these girls were handled a great deal and became very loving, friendly girls as a result of their early days with such very attentive people. Unfortunately, black and white cats are frequently overlooked by potential adopters, and Lucy and Ethel are at risk to grow up at the shelter, never again experiencing a loving home and family, such as the one they had as babies. If you would like to make a real difference in the lives of these two very sweet cats, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. It is NOT required that Lucy and Ethel be adopted together, however, they are very attached to each other and a "double adoption" would be the ideal happy ending. There is a special adoption rate in place for anyone who adopts the two of them together. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
