FBI's Newest 'Most Wanted' Terrorist is a Liberal

Here's something the mainstream media isn't highlighting about the newest addition to the list of "Most Wanted" terror suspects: Daniel Andreas San Diego, a 31-year-old computer specialist from Berkeley, Calif., is an animal rights activist and strict vegan who turned to bomb attacks.

Undocumented Professor of Journalism: Frank Sesno of CNN

In an effort to expose those working in the field without documentation, I will identify whether or not a journalist holds a degree in journalism or communications.

Why is this important?

It is important on two levels.

First, a formal education in journalism or communications lays the foundation for all work performed in the field. Lack of preparatory education in the field calls into question the validity of all work in the field, no matter how expansive and lauded that work may be.

Second, documented journalists have been taught in college to not only cover the who, what, where, when, why, and how of news, but they have also learned the reason why the Framers of the Constitution protected the press from the government in the First Amendment, and the role the press plays as the Fourth Estate by providing final checks and balances over the political process in the United States.

Journalist malpractice can thus be exposed through training or lack thereof.

Simply put, it is not the job of the press to hold one political party more accountable than another; it is not the role of the press to become part of the news it covers. It is the job of the press to objectively report the truth.
Frank Sesno is a professor of public policy and communication at The George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs and is a special contributor to CNN.

Sesno graduated cum laude from Middlebury College with an honors degree in American History 1977. He is the recipient of an honorary doctorate from the Monterrey Institute of International Studies.

Sesno does not hold a degree in journalism or communications. It is also very troubling that, as an individual who has not received an education in journalism, he is also responsible for the education of future reporters.

After Obama Endures Slaps by Ortega, Chavez, AP Incredibly Says Summit Ends on 'Hopeful' Note

Associated Press writer Mark R. Smith notes this morning that the Summit of the Americas is wrapping up Sunday with President Barack Obama hopeful he'd boosted the image of the U.S. among its friends in the region and perhaps even made some new ones.

AP reported that among those seemingly charmed by the president's promise of a new, more equal partnership was Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the fiery leftist who famously likened former President George W. Bush to the devil.

However, ABC News said Chavez gave Obama the anti-American book, "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent" by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano.

Obama politely posed for a photograph with Chavez, shook his hand, and accepted the gift.

Financial news service Bloomberg.com noted that Latin American leaders summarily railed against the U.S. during the summit, turning a trip Obama intended to mark a new direction in relations into a history lesson that chastised “Yankee troop” interventions and U.S.-dictated economic policies.

Major Garret, of Fox News, noted that Obama endured a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of what he called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America and included a rambling denunciation of the U.S.-imposed isolation of Cuba's Communist government.

Obama sat quietly during the speech but at times jotted notes. The speech was part of the opening ceremonies at the summit.

I've always suspected that a healthy dose of self-loathing was part of the change Obama had in mind for America....
