Mainstream Media's Reality Check By: Brian from London
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, November 13, 2006


Every week Shire Network News presents a thirty minute audio show podcast. The show takes a slightly satirical look at the news breaking in the conservative and right wing blogosphere, a disparaging look at whatever nonsense the mainstream media is printing and a very suspicious reality check on what the world of the Islamic Jihad has been up to.

From his secret location on the underside of the world, Tom Paine conducts probing interviews. Tom interviews leading authors and luminaries such as Robert "Jihadwatch" Spencer, Richard Pallywood Landes and other bloggers who come to prominence. On the show, we have interviewed Israeli soldiers who've just returned from Lebanon and students fighting campus bias and anti-Semitism.

The show also has regular commentaries from some leading bloggers who get to rant about anything that takes their fancy.
 
All of this is pulled together with a large dose of satirical British humour. You won't find a BBC party line here: just good common sense that tries to raise a laugh out of even the most troubled news.
 
If you are an iPod and iTunes user you can subscribe to receive each new show every week via this iTunes link. If you don't use iTunes but have another type of MP3 player, I can recommend Podcastready.
 
Recent highlights include:
 
Robert Spencer discusses his new book, The Truth about Muhammad, in a two part interview in these shows: Part One and Part Two.
 
Richard Landes discusses the recent trial in Paris that amazingly found no problem with very dubious footage of the alleged shooting of Mohammad Al Durah. We had previously interviewed Richard just after he gave evidence at the trial, which is available here.
 
We also spoke recently to two students fighting campus bias and anti-Semitism. We spoke to Orit Sklar from Georgia Tech after she wrote in FrontpageWe also spoke to Reut Cohen who is fighting anti-Semitism at UC Irvine.
 
Brian of London is the presenter and producer of Shire Network News and writes occasionally for www.friendsofmicronesia.com.
