Subject: Appalling Journalism by "Bidisha" on Monday 22nd Sept 2008
Date: Fri, 26 Sep 2008 11:42:38 +0100
Hi - an article published in your comment is free section called "Hard Wired
Harrassment" by "Bidisha" is an example of some of the worst journalism that
I have ever read. The whole piece was clearly hate speech against men in
general and I'm sure the Guardian wouldn't have unleashed such an appalling
piece of journalism had the negative target of the article been women. The
part that really took the biscuit though was Bidisha's claim that (and I
quote directly from the article) " We live in a country in which domestic
violence is the single biggest killer of women,.."
That is a patently absurd claim and even the link which she embedded in the
original article does not back that outrageous claim up. Breast cancer alone
kills 10's of thousands of women a year whilst deaths from domestic violence
are estimated between 80 odd to around 120 depending on your source!!!
The other issue I have is that in the comment section one regular
commentator who has an excellent reputation for fairness, reasoned argument
and respect for those opposing him had around 7 or 8 of his responses
deleted (I honestly couldn't see anything in those posts that could be in
any way described as offensive because I had read them before they were
suddenly deletd) on the other hand there were other posters who supported
and repeated the blatant LIE about DV deaths (as claimed by Bidisha) whose
posts were left intact. I'm sorry but in the past I have kept an open mind
about comment deletions but this time it was almost impossible to conclude
that the deletions were anything other than partisan bias.
The Guardian's reputation as a quality newspaper is not helped by such
trashy journalism nor is it helped by such blatantly partisan moderating. I
hope you will take these criticisms on board and make an effort to vet
contributions from authors more carefully in future as well as carry out a
review of your moderating process.
Separated husbands and wives who block their former partners from seeing their children could be forced to do community service under new laws coming into force in the autumn.
The move is likely to be welcomed by fathers' rights groups, which in recent years have led high-profile campaigns to highlight the problems fathers have maintaining contact with their children once relationships break down.
Mr Cameron also voted for keeping the "father" requirement, while Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg were against.
The former Europe minister Denis MacShane, who has campaigned for a crackdown on trafficking, said: 'It's time for honest language. When a man has sex with a frightened, beaten and intimidated woman there is only word to describe it and that is rape. I am pleased that the Home Office now recognises that. We need to see charges against men who have sex with women who are living in fear after being trafficked.'
Decent fathers are left powerless to see their estranged children if vengeful mothers are determined to prevent access, a senior judge has admitted.
Lord Justice Ward attacked child access law after presiding over a case that saw a "vicious" mother falsely accuse her ex-husband of sexually abusing their child.
He spoke out after telling the father that there was nothing he could do to help him re-establish contact with his daughter after his ex-wife turned her against him.
The man's 14-year-old daughter, who cannot been identified, had been influenced by a "drip, drip, drip of venom" from his ex-wife, who wanted to deny him his paternal rights.
TORRANCE, Calif.--Police say a man fatally shot his 5-year-old son and mother-in-law before turning the gun on himself in what is believed to be a murder-suicide near Los Angeles.
The Monday night shootings came some eight hours after Torrance police had served the man with a restraining order taken out by his wife.
Officer Dave Crespin says the man returned to the home after being served, then shot his son, his wife and mother-in-law, and himself. His son died at the scene and the older woman later died at a hospital.
Police have not released the names of the gunman or the victims.
he has been served with court papers in the U.S. this week that prove beyond doubt that the "amicable" divorce he had claimed he was going through with his third wife is anything but.
Indeed, the full court documents obtained by the Mail this week, reveal the true level of bitterness to which things have descended - and the full extent to which his psychotherapist wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger plans to take the multi-millionaire Cleese to the cleaners.
It would be the understatement of the decade to say they do not make for pleasant reading for the star.
Among her demands in the 64 pages of her divorce petition are her claims to share half of his nine worldwide properties, worth an estimated £16 million, including four in California, one in New York, three in London and a holiday villa in Jamaica.
The 63-year-old Miss Eichelberger, who married the star in December 1992, is also demanding half of his earnings since their wedding.
And in the meantime, her lawyers have submitted court documents that specify she needs an astonishing £71,250 a month to live on, this includes £2,000 for clothes, £5,000 on gifts, entertaining and holidays, and £1,000 for eating out.
The gender-related problems for ambitious working women of child-bearing age are unshruggable: glass ceilings, difficulties with childcare provision, annoyances about taking maternity leave ("again ?") and, here in Britain, Sir Alan Sugar's sweet old-fashioned ways with women.
According to the arrest warrant, Rebecca Bargy placed duct tape over James Bargy's mouth and eyes, put a ball gag in his mouth and then tied a bandage around his head, leaving only his nostrils showing.
She also tied his hands and legs behind his back. She then left him for 20 hours.
..."The proof will show that James consented to this being done to him and that he was an active participant," Patterson said.
But detectives told Nashville television station WTVF Rebecca Bargy was having an affair with another man.
Too Many Women Doctors Too many women doctors working fewer hours than men will ultimately result in a major shortage of GPs, a leading specialist warns today.
(Also see AH's old piece entitled Is the Training of Women Doctors A Waste of Money? - to which the answer is a big, resounding, Yes.)
Indeed, it is a huge waste of money, and it also deprives the most vulnerable people in our society - the sick, the poor, the old and the weak - of services which they need.
Furthermore, every single one of us will need to use the health services throughout our lives, and so every one us will have to suffer a significantly impoverished service as a result of the policies promoted by political correctness and feminists.
But nothing must stand in the way of a few thousand women doing what they want to do, eh?
"So I suggest the general collapse of ordinary family life, because of the breakdown of families, in this country is on a scale, depth and breadth which few of us could have imagined even a decade ago."
"What is certain is that almost all of society's social ills can be traced directly to the collapse of the family life."
A spokeswoman for the Department for Children, Families and Schools said: "Most children and young people in England today are safe, healthy, and achieve well."
