A Tale of Two Vettings
In response to Stanley Kurtz’s detailed story on Barack Obama’s role in working with unrepentant terrorist and left-wing radical Bill Ayers to arrange the financing for a project that “poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists” under Ayers’ dubious theory of treating left-wing political activism as “education” (a story I discussed at length here), Marc Aimbinder wants | Read More »
In Defense of Redstate…..
In today’s New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an op-ed about how Republicans are trying to “otherize” Barack Obama by playing up rumors of him being a secret Muslim or even the anti-Christ. In his column today, Kristof listed Redstate (along with Jerome Corsi) as one of the Republican institutions that was attempting to “otherize” Obama with the secret Muslim/anti-Christ rumors. Kristof even placed | Read More »
AP: We’re above the law.
If media elites wonder many of us “common folk” take much of what we read, watch or hear with skepticism one might look no further than the actions taken by the Associated Press after the hacking of Sarah Palin’s personal email account.
Help me out, here.
I’m not familiar with John Friedman, so I don’t know if this little bit from CBS News online is intended seriously or tongue-in-cheek: Gibson, as dignified a newsperson as America has now, treated Palin fairly and didn’t resort to hectoring her with “gotcha” questions, either. Palin’s supporters may be chagrined that their candidate didn’t sound more self-assured or expert when she discussed Alaska’s relationship to | Read More »
The Twilight of Decency
Conservatives are used to dealing with the drive by media, as Rush Limbaugh likes to refer to them. We are used to having our policies, ideas, philosophies, and leaders under the meat cleaver of the rabid rhetoric of Rolling Stone Magazine, CNN, NBC, the Washington Post and the New York Times. The last two weeks, however, have confirmed our worst fears as objective, educated Americans: | Read More »
Charlie Gibson interviews our Presidential and VP candidates seriatim [Humor]
…challenging, in order, Barack Obama (Lancelot), John McCain (Sir Robin), Joe Biden (Galahad), Sarah Palin (Arthur) What would we do without Monty Python to put everything into proper perspective?
“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 »
Palin’s Clear and Unambiguous Language and World View Refreshing
A term like the “Bush Doctrine” will only achieve some sort of lasting meaning with the passage of time. Currently, the term is NOT in the popular lexicon. Ask your friends and coworkers or the clerk at WalMart. Knowledge of the term, “Bush Doctrine”, contrary to pundits and so-called journalists, is not a prerequisite to understanding US foreign policy. In fact, harping on this term | Read More »
Is Accuracy An Option Now?
In a piece via UPI, Martin Sieff explores some of the more egregious examples of the media bias this year. But for me he kind of ruined the whole effort with this paragraph: In the long sweep of U.S. political history, the worst dirt that has been thrown at either of the presidential candidates pales compared with……..the false claims by Republicans in the 1944 campaign | Read More »
What Palin Really Said About Russia

ABC is scum – the Palin hack job
Martin Knight wrote a diary here just before the now-infamous ABC News crucifixion interview of Sarah Palin. He opined that Palin should bring her own cameraman to record what was said so the REAL interview could be documented. Indeed. Mr. Knight was quite correct. The web site Newsbusters.org now shows us why this is the case. They point to several egregious examples of hacks of | Read More »
Should Andrew S., Matt D., Keith O., Chris M., Don & Carol Fowler be Committed?
The recently diagnosed Palin Derangement Syndrome is reaching the peak of the epidemic. So many in the media and the democrat elites are falling victim that soon all those susceptible will succumb. The only treatment for PDS is the truth, which so far seems to be winning out, despite the near monopoly of the MSM. Being immune to PDS, it is quite a delight to | Read More »
Charlie Gibson Got The Bush Doctrine Wrong! Major MSM Gaffe!
We need to hold Gibson and ABC to account for this, and get the word our before the MSM spreads more lies! According to Wikipedia, Charles Krauthammer was the first to use the term, The Bush Doctrine, in 2001. He explains in the Washington Post todaythat there are four successive meanings to the term, Bush Doctrine. Thus it was quite appropriate for Sarah Palin to | Read More »
Washington Post Climbs Back In the Tank for Obama
One would have thought after five years of war reporterette Anne E. Kornbut would be somewhat clear on who exactly the combatants are in Iraq but then one would be working under the assumption that basic honesty and integrity are useful traits when you are in the tank for Barack Obama and writing a tawdry hit piece in his support. In a front page story | Read More »
Just another minor but telling example of deliberate media bias
Glanced over at CNN, and their lead story on their home page, complete with photo of Barack Obama, was as follows: Obama: Being American is blessing, responsibility America became a great country because of its people, Sen. Barack Obama said Thursday night at a Time-sponsored forum on national service. “It is a great blessing that we’ve received,” he said. “It is also a responsibility … | Read More »
