It’s Not Easy Being Green
Note: This was originally going to cover both conventions, to really get a picture of the energy use. Unfortunately, the setup is different here and I can’t really get a late night walkaround. So I’m going to post the coverage from last week. If there was one message heard loud and clear at the Democratic National Convention this year, it was "Be Green!" Everywhere you | Read More »
Memo to the New York Times: You Don’t Understand Conservatives, Republicans, or Independents.
(Click for full image) Apparently, the New York Times has decided to take a day off from the exhausting work of alerting our terrorist enemies to our secret plans to stop them from attacking us, and has decided to focus instead on the vital issue of Bristol Palin’s pregnancy. Currently, on the front page of the New York Times there are three (THREE!) front page | Read More »
I Did It!!!!
Finally after all these years, I’ve cracked the bitter, grey, rotten chestnut that is the New York Times editorial staff and I have had my views, or at least a fascimile of my imaginary views, published by the Newspaper of Record as a Letter to the Editor. I can also tell anyone who asks that I will never publicly recapitulate the contents of the letter, | Read More »
NYT Complaint: Not Enough Photos Of Mutilated American Soldiers in This War
** Now With Update… A Soldier Speaks ** The New York Times is miffed. They aren’t happy that there has been a dearth of news photos showing dead American soldiers in the war in Iraq. The Times is lamenting that there have been “4,000 U.S. Combat Deaths, and Just a Handful of Images,” so more carnage and death is their druthers. Well, more American dead, | Read More »
John Edwards has a child with his mistress*
On February 21, 2008, the New York Times ran a 3,000 word article with no sources on the record and a lot of innuendo about John McCain having an affair with a lobbyist. The first paragraph was one sentence. Here is the second paragraph: A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, visiting his offices and accompanying him on a client’s corporate | Read More »
The New York Times 2Q Profit: 82 Percent Drop
Wow. Now that’s some serious collapsing. But it’s hardly newsworthy…except for this excellent quote from a NYT executive. Chief Executive Janet Robinson says business was hurt by the “U.S. economic slowdown and **secular forces** playing out across the media industry.” Emphasis added. Hee hee.
So, What Should we Call The Media, Anyway?
Many of us have taken to calling the media establishment the “MSM,” or “Mainstream Media.” But is that a fair and properly descriptive monicker to bestow upon them? A New York Times Blogger pondered that very question on July 21 in a “The Caucus” blog entry — one that was a barely disguised effort to highlight and advertise the opinion of one Markos Moulitsas of | Read More »
The New York Times has trouble
Earlier, I wrote a bit about the New York Times and opinion editor David Shipley’s rejection of John McCain’s reply to a fatuous and facetious Obama editorial of last week. Someone was kind enough to send me the paper’s stock charts. Check it out. I wonder how much of this could have been prevented if they were not losing subscribers at a rapid rate, and | Read More »
New York Times Shocker: Only 31% of Whites Have Favorable Opinion of Obama
As a rough estimate, if you believe the country is split 50/50, that means all of the white Republicans and 40% of the white Democrats do not have a favorable opinion of the Democrat nominee. Can you win a presidential election with those numbers? McCain has a 35% favorability rating. The real kicker for Hillary supporters is that their candidate has a favorability of 40% | Read More »

President Bush and Abdication
President Bush has not directed the EPA to issue regulations limiting greenhouse gas emissions, and EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson has indicated the agency would seek further public comment before making a determination on the matter. The New York Times Editorial Board is all in a tizzy. The Bush administration made clear on Friday that it will do virtually nothing to regulate the greenhouse gases that | Read More »
