Dodd lying to Left over online lender lobbyist ties?
Credit where credit is due: this is a nice piece of reporting on Dodd by the Huffington Post. The title (“Dodd Dinner With Online Payday Lenders Transforms Into Fundraiser“) explains a bit already, but the background is this: there’s a lobbying group called the Online Lenders Alliance. Fair enough. They’re throwing a conference this week. So far, so good. There’s a bunch of people from | Read More »
More HuffPo Horse Hockey
It’s a Sarah Palin Twofer for Huffington Post today. We have already debunked a distortion made by one of that website’s diarists today. Now another diarist, Shannyn Moore, who uses her personal blog and a two-hour weekly talk show on an Anchorage radio station mostly to kick Sarah Palin around, has shown that she never lets facts get in the way of a good Palin-bashing. | Read More »
HuffPo distortion contortion
Susan Crile proves that Huffington Post willfully distorts any fact that can be found about Sarah Palin. In a HuffPo post about the attempted hijacking of a State of Alaska web page (See Web Page Hijack FAIL), Crile says: “Sarah Palin’s lawyers — already busy handling the dozen legal complaints that are pending against the Alaska governor — are now doing legal battle with a | Read More »
Science bloggers challenge credibility of Huffington Post “wellness” editor
Should the news site label its columnists and editors as “doctors” when they don’t have medical degrees? Peter Lipson, an internist who specializes in the prevention and treatment of illness, doesn’t remember exactly when he first began criticizing health-related articles at the Huffington Post, but his agitation has reached its apogee over the past few weeks. During that time the health section — placed within | Read More »
Is The Mainstream Media America’s Version Of Suicide Bombers?
So I’m reading the 9,324th story on the absolutely ridiculous “ethics complaint”against Sarah Palin, filed by operatives of the DNC, namely Sondra Tomkins, who is aided by Shannyn Moore, Jeanne Devon, and Linda Biegel. Standard boilerplate left wing lunacy. This time written by so-called “professor” Amanda Coyne, who runs the Alaska Dispatch, a small internet newser, that’s main purpose seems to be printing attacks against | Read More »

HuffPo Offended By Tea Parties
SCROLL DOWN FOR LEFT-WING PROTEST PHOTOS/VIDEO PROTESTING BUSH 2008 The Huffington Post, amid their thousands of column inches, hundreds of stories, and thousands of photos dedicated to discussing why the tea parties are stupid and unworthy of attention, recently and snarkily compiled their list of the Top Ten Most Offensive Tea Party Signs, the purpose of which, like that CNN hack what’s her name, is | Read More »
An Open Letter To Frank Schaeffer’s Open Letters
Dear Frank Schaeffer‘s Open Letters: Hi, I’m Caleb Howe’s blog entries (hereafter referred to as “a blog”). Thanks for listening. I used to be an open letter (hereafter referred to as “the hacky crutch”) much like you. Eventually I had to change. Too many bad things happened over the years, and the hacky crutch was increasingly used for purposes I didn’t want to be a | Read More »
Keith Olbermann – Go Back To ESPN
Conservative-hating MSNBC host Keith Olbermann is known for attacking Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh (i.e. guys who crush Olbermann in the ratings) on a daily basis for a slip up or error these hosts may make from time to time. Last night, Olbermann and Howard Dean were attacking five governors (there are actually six) who are considering rejecting stimulus money on Countdown with Keith Olbermann when | Read More »
The Huffington Post Gleefully Falls for a Hoax. [UPDATE] They almost sound sorry for this one.
[UPDATE]: HuffPo now regrets the error. Full points for retracting it in the story itself; 75% off the total for blaming it on a third party and not their own shoddy fact-checking. They’re playing the same behavior pattern of slovenly reporting. In this case, failing to confirm before they screamed and leaped. Via Hot Air Headlines, johnny dollar has the details: to summarize, a video | Read More »
HuffPo’s Frank Schaeffer to Obama: Purge The Heretics
Much was made, during storied campaign 2008, of the notion that we are all one people, needlessly divided. That from the many would come the one. There is not a liberal America, and a conservative America, there is the United States of America, after all. Heal this nation, we heard. Make us one, they pleaded. A lovely sentimentality, that. And an utterly false affectation, of | Read More »
Any Redsate Writers Stab Their Gay Lover 220 Times Lately
I thought it was repressed christian conservatives who are suppose to be twisted and full of rage. Not enlightened liberals who blog for the Huffington Post. Nice people you got over there Arianna.
Obama Wants “Major Redistributive Change”
Conservative blogs are abuzz over an interview Barack Obama did in 2001 on the subject of Earl Warren’s Supreme Court and the public school financing system. It provides further ammunition for those who argue that Barack Obama is outside the mainstream on issues of wealth distribution. A partial transcript: MODERATOR: Good morning and welcome to Odyssey on WBEZ Chicago 91.5 FM and we’re joined by | Read More »
HuffPo: What’s Wrong With Socialism, Anyway?
Barack Obama may not welcome defenses like this one, but they represent the views of many of his acolytes, nonetheless. It’s no secret that the liberal elites who’ll hold the levers of power in an Obama administration really are eager to give socialism its first real test in America. And while this essay comes from someone at Hufington Post, it would just as easily come | Read More »
The Obama Nation Inevitability
The Conservative Policy Arena The mainstream media template is clear; Obama will win the 2008 presidential election. It’s inevitable according to them and everything is falling into place – so goes the conventional wisdom. The polls are showing a large lead for Barack Obama. The economy or at least the markets are in chaos which only fuels the Obama ascendency. ACORN is registering thousands of | Read More »
Paging the New York Times: A **GREAT** Way to Save Money
The Huffington Post, blowing all pretense of being anything other than what it actually is, has taken to directly posting the daily DNC talking points. No reporting of them, no additional commentary, just cutting and pasting them as news items, which I guess will get the DNC talking points into Google News pretty directly. You guys ought to consider the same. Given your stock price | Read More »
