Jim Sharpe and Jayme West
PHOENIX — Arizona’s Morning News will soon have two new voices: Longtime news personality Jim Sharpe and award-winning anchor Jayme West are taking over KTAR News’ popular program next month.
The duo will replace Arizona Hall of Fame broadcaster Ned Foster, who is retiring after nearly 27 years, and Connie Weber, who recently left her post as Arizona’s Morning News co-anchor following a successful decade-long run.
Jim and Jayme begin their new roles on Nov. 30. (more…)
I created a chart to ensure that budding journalists understand how to properly frame a story involving any type of shooting, terror attack, or other violent crime. Remember that the job of the Objective Journalist™ is not to tell the audience what happened, but to expand the event into an indictment of Western culture.

The President’s impassioned Oregon speech, moving as it was, missed a key point that could lead to real progress on this terrible issue of mass murder.
The 16 black Americans shot and murdered in ghettos that same day, and the day before, tragically got no news coverage.
This is stunning, unmentioned — and those lives matter.
That black-lives gunfire atrocity is repeated, daily. And will remain true tomorrow when another 16 are murdered, but get no “coverage” — 6,000 per year.
The “Graph of Death” Mr. Obama asked for is already available here:
(with gut-wrenching explanation)
By focusing on an isolated “newsworthy” tragedy in one place, Mr. Obama unknowingly obscures the real issue, and does indeed politicize it — as he forthrightly admitted.
NOTE: Every action of this Oregon murderer is already 100% illegal — legal scholars know the call for new laws is superfluous and disingenuous. It is a political agenda that weakens support and the true effort to solve the problem.
The President made a repeated and critical mistake: New laws affecting all Americans will not affect the lone psychotics who commit these atrocities —
The medical community stands as the greatest obstacle in getting to the psychotics.
And the biggest ignored issue of all is: The existing background checks have stopped two million people from buying guns because they are known criminals or mentally unfit — and they are simply turned loose on the streets.
We have their names and addresses — and our government just sets them free, right after they try to buy guns.*
Mr. President, do something about that if you’re really serious.
Don’t try to pass something else, that you know and admit Congress and the public will resist. Act now.
President Obama delivered an angry statement on the Thursday shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, OR. “Each time we see one of these mass shootings,” he said from the White House briefing room podium, “our thoughts and prayers are not enough.
In a 15-minute statement, Obama stressed that the US is “the only advanced country on Earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every couple of months.” He praised the gun control efforts in Australia, a nation that conducted a mass confiscation of firearms from its citizenry.
The President repeatedly complained about the Republican-led Congress and gun rights advocates. “There is a gun for roughly every man, woman, and child in America,” he said, “so how can you with a straight face say more guns will make us safer?”
