Michael Halperin Wants To Have Obama’s Baby
Our old friend Mark Halperin is at it again. After spending much of the 2004 campaign with his eyes locked on Democrat talking points as firmly as his lips were bonded to John Kerry’s posterior, Halp-less has released his ‘analysis’ of last night’s debate. (see http://www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,1845106,00.html) There are echoes throughout of the infamous October 2004 memo, where young Mark directed the ABC news organization to | Read More »
Palin v. Biden: Who’s the real ticket-killer?
“Mainstream media” (MSM) never was an accurate representation of what this country’s major print and broadcast news sources are and what they do. “Mainstream” is defined, when used as an adjective, as “representing the prevailing attitudes, values and practices of a society or group.” The media, as a group, certainly has a set of prevailing attitudes, values and practices, but they are not those of | Read More »

Dems Bailout Proposal Redirects ‘Paulson’s Profits’ To Left-Wing Groups
Bush told the country that we are in an economic crisis and his Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, came up with an idea that would, it is claimed, end up actually making money for the U.S. Treasury in the long run. That’s all well and good, but the Democrats already have a plan to siphon off any repayment of the people’s money back to the treasury | Read More »
Latest example of the AP in the tank for Obama
Here is a story from the AP today about the meetings yesterday. Dems, some in GOP question McCain’s intervention By CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer Fri Sep 26, 2:09 AM ET WASHINGTON – Sen. John McCain’s self-portrait as a bold leader willing to set politics aside to save an endangered financial bailout plan took a pounding Thursday from top Democrats and even some fellow Republicans. | Read More »
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]

“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 »
