…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 »

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 »
Campbell Brown: CNNs Rachel Maddow with a Pretty Face
Campbell Brown just finished another edition of CNN’s new “No Bias, No Bull” campaign ’08 reportage. The first half she spent reviewing every historical incident where the term “lipstick on a pig” was used, arguing that Barack Obama is being persecuted by the Mccain campaign. The second half she turned to her “reporter on the ground” in Anchorage, who gushed a whole pile of bias | Read More »

One more example of why Google is in the tank for Obama
I did a Google news search for the term “National Enquirer” and this gem came up at the top of the search. Now, I’ll bet money if you contact Google they will tell you that their search is pristine and can’t be manipulated. I remember when I did a Google search on Bush lied. That is when I knew Google was a whore for the | Read More »
AP: We will get Palin, oh yes, even if we have to make stuff up
AP ( Jennifer Loven): FAIRFAX, Va. – Republican presidential nominee John McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, equated lawmakers’ requests for funding for special projects with corruption on Wednesday even though Palin herself has requested nearly $200 million in so-called “earmarks” this year. Palin has sought $197 million worth of earmarks for 2009, down about 25 percent from the $256 million she | Read More »
Obama Unhinged and Unmasked
Barack Hussein Obama has lost it. The past few days he is clearly off-balance, he misspeaks, he hems and haws and hesitates (much more than usual), he is getting more outrageous and extreme. Axelrod is not smiling. He looks strained and angry. Biden the pompous windbag is angry. They are all ranting and raving. The DNC and Obama have resorted to sending 30 lawyers and | Read More »
Campbell Brown: CNN Equal Opportunity Smearer-in-chief
Noone can say that CNN’s new effort to be the ‘fair and balanced’ news source of record isn’t succeeding. Campbell Brown just spent the first half of her show ‘exposing’ all the lobbyists surrounding John McCain (in order to ‘prove’ that Obama’s claim was in fact correct. (She calls this segment “No Bias, No Bull”, after CNN’s new slogan). While she could have spent the | Read More »
