‘Kraut-hammer.’ Very droll, Newsweek.
Newsweek’s Jonathan Alter, in the process of telling the Democrats that they need to da*n the torpedoes and go full speed ahead, drops this gem: Charles Kraut-hammer doesn’t represent any swing voters. Not having the print edition of Newsweek handy – like pretty much the rest of America – I don’t know if this is reproduced there. But I’m curious: is the ethnic sneer there | Read More »

Here is a link to the Newsweek article entitled The Five Biggest Lies in the Health Care Debate, followed by the response I posted: http://www.newsweek.com/id/214254 My God Newsweek. Where can I get my ‘Do It For Teddy’ t-shirt. You should be called ‘Spinweek’ How about doing a counter article called ‘The Five Biggest Truths in the Health Care Debate’. It would probably look a little | Read More »

Additionally, they will continue to monetize debt by purchasing $300 billion in Treasuries to finance record Federal deficits.

News flash: Newsweek learns that the press is biased toward Obama
Robert Samuelson writes for Newsweek and the Washington Post. In my mind, Newsweek and MSNBC were the two news outlets that were the most in Obama’s pocket during the campaign and for the most part since the election. I couldn’t tell you off the top of my head where Mr. Samuelson falls on the scale, but he’s always worked for liberal news organizations so I’d | Read More »
Dueling Quotes of the Day.
We have two prime contenders for this one. Jim Geraghty, on the Virginia Democratic Primaries: One of my readers* summarized the Democratic field this morning as “the corrupt brother of a corrupt anti-Semite, an upstate New Yorker who failed as DNC Chair and who has no real ties to the state, and some Virginian who keeps hitting people with his car.” Allahpundit, on the… business… | Read More »
Revisiting the New ‘Stuff Just Blows Up’ Star Trek.
Dan Collins and David Thompson have more about that eye-rolling bad review of Star Trek that I… well, rolled my eyes over. David went on to mention “In the Pale Moonlight” of Star Trek: DS9; the clip that he’s thinking of is good enough that I’m reproducing it below. It’s no accident that this is one of the most memorable events from the series. Or | Read More »
Newsweek: Celebrating America as a New, Socialist France
Newsweek’s Jon Meacham and Evan Thomas are tired of all this talk of socialism. We need to stop talking about yesterday’s news, they say, and embrace the great new fact that America is already a socialist country. They chortle that America is just like France. Meacham and Thomas chide Sean Hannity for using socialism as a dirty word because it “seems strangely beside the point.” | Read More »
A Traitor Painted a Hero
In today’s world of moral relativism, the media frequently reverses labels and agendas. Good men are made the villain. Villains are made good men. Heros are made traitors and traitors are made heros. After spending thousands of words to claim God is a proponent of gay marriage, Newsweek works hard to paint a traitor as a hero. Meet Thomas Tamm. Mr. Tamm is the man | Read More »
Jon Meacham’s Profound Cowardice and Jackassery
I should leave the Newsweek hit job as I left it, but I think more needs to be said about Jon Meacham’s column. Meacham is the Editor of Newsweek and his column shows a profound disrespect for people of faith and a great amount of cowardice. Let’s deal with it. Meacham writes No matter what one thinks about gay rights—for, against or somewhere in between | Read More »
Newsweek Joins the Gay Reich Movement. Declares War on the Bible
Geez, now I’m embarrassed to have ever been profiled in the magazine. If you thought they were maintaining a notion of fair, independent journalism when they turned into an opinion rag advocating global warming, get a load of their new issue. It tries to use the Bible as justification for gay marriage. And in doing so, Newsweek’s editor opens with this wonderfully humorous editorial note: | Read More »
Not to sound all PBS . . .
But RedState could not do it without readers/users like you. On newsstands Monday is a profile of RedState in Newsweek. You can check it out here complete with a misspelling of my last name in the first line. Heh. After suffering demoralizing losses in the Nov. 4 election, the GOP is searching for new voices to spur a comeback. But the party’s right wing tends | Read More »

Score Another One For The Palin Critics
Apparently, according to Newsweek, Gov. Palin refused to appear onstage with a New Hampshire Senator and a New Hampshire Senate candidate because they are pro-choice. (H/T). Except that the Senator in question, John Sununu, is pro-life. And except that the other candidate wasn’t running for the Senate (Newsweek may have missed this, but Sununu was up for re-election, so there were not two Republicans running | Read More »
How Obama treats us and how we treat Obama
By now it’s become a Known Fact™ that supporters of Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin shout nasty things about Senator Barack Obama at rallies, and have gone so far as to call for the Democratic nominee’s death. Obama has even attacked McCain for it. This of course means it’s not true. The Secret Service is as non-partisan a group as you will find, | Read More »
Obama on Abortion, the Simple Facts
This is a direct quote from Newsweek, a mainstream liberal newsmagazine, on the consequences for the Pro-Life position of the election of Obama. Keep in mind he will have sizable Democratic majorities in the Congress and Senate. Obama’s election would, in one fell-swoop, reverse every single gain made by pro-lifers in the last 30 years and even remove the right of Doctors to refuse to | Read More »
