I Have “strong ties to Koch brothers” – Who Knew?
The Associated Press reporter Ryan J. Foley wrote an intriguing article called ‘Cain has strong ties to Koch brothers.’ Ever since The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer wrote a flimsy piece of nonsensical rubbish attempting to link the Koch brothers to the Tea Party, everyone who pretends to be a journalist has been tying up the facts into knots in an attempt to brand all conservatives as employees | Read More »
We Need Geraldo on the Case!
Rush Limbaugh jokingly calls Geraldo Rivera the ‘Angel of Death’ due to his frequent proximity to the air waves when someone significant has died. In this case, Geraldo should be on hand to report the death of journalistic standards in this country. But Geraldo has another attribute that suggests he should be at the New York Times or Washington Post covering the Palin Email Scandal. He was | Read More »
The Media’s Paradigm Shifts
And just like that, the world changes. Until now, conservative media was the red-headed stepchild. The lame-brained media didn’t really take it seriously. The alternative media pooh-poohed us. Average Americans really never gave conservative media a thought. Drudge, Redstate, Hotair, Biggovernment, and Townhall were ‘just’ blogging sites. They weren’t ‘real’ journalists or ‘real’ activists. They were just run-of-the-mill yak-meisters that could be easily marginalized. Conservative | Read More »
Gross Journalistic Malpractice
After reading the Vanity Fair hit piece on Sarah Palin, I decided to write a letter to the editor of the magazine. I’m not a regular reader of that collectivist rag, but I think from time to time they need to be reminded that if you are calling yourself a journalistic enterprise, you may want to act that way once in a while. I was | Read More »
A Query for Couric
On January 14th, 2010, the Columbia School of Broadcasting, along with the Alfred I DuPont Foundation, awarded the Silver Baton award, an award the university compares to the Pulitzer, to Katie Couric for her 2008 interviews with Sarah Palin. The awards committee reported that Couric was selected because,”In a political season full of interviews with the leading candidates, Katie Couric’s apt and determined questioning of | Read More »
Journolist?, What Journolist?
The Journolist controversy sparked by The Daily Caller’s publication of ‘private’ emails of the members had quite a splash in the new media. However, in the lame-brained media outlets there has been a suspicious silence regarding the political machinations of a group of so-called journalists. Why all the furor in the new media but barely a whimper from the Big Three, NBC, CBS, and ABC? This silence | Read More »

How Many Fingers Does Michelle Antoinette Have?
I delight in reading the absurd assertions being printed daily in the lame-brained media. They are so divorced from reality as to become the punchline of jokes. We are being told that we are rightwing extremists hellbent on lying about our Dear Leader. Athe same time, they whitewash the behavior of The Regime. I find myself chuckling at the ridiculous reporting that pretends to reflect a | Read More »
