Leftys Now Arresting Journos Who Question Them

    Breitbart News is reporting on a journalist who was videotaped being arrested by USC officers for asking why Katie Couric was being given an award there.  It appears that such questions are an “unlawful” violation of the leftist establishment’s unwritten code, which apparently trumps the US Constitution, the State Constitution, and over 200 years of court precedents. The arresting officers seem to be confused about | Read More »

    Read All About It.

    I hear that the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, like many other once-proud newspapers, is up for sale. Even worse, if it’s not sold inside of 60 days, it will cease to exist in print (but might continue in a greatly scaled-back online form). Sad. Very sad. I was thinking the other day about how the newspaper biz has changed since I was a kid, throwing a paper | Read More »

    Journalistic Malpractice.

    Yesterday, I heard a report of an on-air chat between reporters (read: “talking heads”) Charlie Rose and Tom Brokaw, where they sat around (basking in the post-election afterglow) and opined that nobody really knows anything about our President-Elect. They were somewhat mystified that anyone could get elected to the Presidency, without knowing what they think about the important issues of the day. (Keep in mind, | Read More »

    Journalism is still dead

    A while back, I wrote Journalism’s obituary. Now one of my favorite authors, Victor Davis Hanson, has penned this excellent piece on its demise. Unlike my meager effort, VDH’s essay is eloquent and comprehensive. Highly recommended. JP

    Harlem minister on media hypocrisy

    Harlem minister Rev. James D. Manning speaks out on the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) hypocrisy about chastising Sarah / Bristol Palin regarding out of wedlock pregnancy when Obama himself was born out of wedlock. http://www.atlah.org/broadcast/ndnr09-03-08.html

    On Media Bias

    Media’s Presidential Bias and DeclineColumnist Michael Malone Looks at Slanted Election Coverage and the Reasons WhyColumn By MICHAEL S. MALONEOct. 24, 2008 — The traditional media are playing a very, very dangerous game — with their readers, with the Constitution and with their own fates.

    Time For A Rudimentary History Lesson

    Ruth Marcus, Reporter for The Washington Post, is a fairly accurate barometer by which we can estimate how much our elite intelligentsia really understands the nation it condescends to and calls stupid. Cry the beloved country. Her latest reading shows us the presence of an intellectual low pressure system. Ramesh Ponnuru stands appropriately gobsmacked. Ruth Marcus writes, “McCain’s angry denunciation of socialist wealth-spreading ignores the | Read More »

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I Present To You: The Insanity of the American Left

    Over at Facebook, a liberal friend of mine posted a link to a NYT article regarding Sarah Palin and the Wasilla rape kit issue. I responded that the article was a smear because it purported allegations as if they were facts, and I linked to Jim Geraghty’s Campaign Spot article that mentions how, at a minimum, there is no evidence proving that Palin made or | Read More »

    Journalism

    After living a long and remarkable life, Journalism has passed away following a prolonged battle with illness. Doctors attribute the cause of death to abuse. No one really knows the precise age of Journalism, but it is believed to have descended from oral traditions that existed in the ages prior to the written word. The coroner has not been able to determine the time of | Read More »

    A Call To Arms

    I think it goes without saying that Senator McCain took Barack Obama to school last week in the first Presidential debate. I don’t know how anyone who watched the debate could say otherwise. Obama spent more time stammering, interrupting, and turning red than he did actually providing any useful information to the voters. Senator McCain was very articulate and amazingly prepared for someone who was | Read More »

    “Liberal bias [in journalism] is not a bad thing”

    For the longest time, we’ve lived with the notion that journalists should be unbiased-that the reporter should practice his or her craft with an unfiltered lens so as to allow people to make their own choices. Thank goodness we can let go of that stupid principle: So the so-called “liberal bias” is not a myth, after all. No news there. The news is that this | Read More »

    Whitey need not apply

    Whitey Need Not Apply By Patrick J. Buchanan “Will race be an issue in this campaign?” Hearing the cable talk-show host solemnly pose the question, Icould not suppress a belly laugh. For the anchor was fearful that some white folks might reject Obamabecause he is African-American — even as a Rasmussen poll wasreporting that Barack is beating McCain among black voters 94 to 1.
