    The Same Washington Post That Got Marco Rubio’s Story Wrong, Attacks Him Again

    Last week, the Washington Post attacked Marco Rubio for “misrepresenting” his family’s story. The Post got called out by other newspapers for the Post’s egregious truth stretching to make its story fit. In the quotes the Washington Post cited, the reporter misrepresented the context of Marco Rubio’s remarks. It was true that Rubio had gotten some details wrong. But it was also very clear that | Read More »

    The Horserace for October 27, 2011

The CEO of the illinois Policy Institute has encountered a few of the occupiers and shares some concerns with them.Here is what I learned: First, they don’t like crony capitalism in which politicians and government pick the winners and losers.

    “An Incredible Moment in Politics.” Mitt Romney Won’t Go There.

    Hey Rick Perry, if you weren’t trying to have fun with birtherism, this would probably be a much bigger media story today. Peter Hamby over at CNN referred to it as “an incredible moment in politics.”Mitt Romney refused to endorse John Kasich’s reforms in Ohio. This is a huge freaking deal. Playing it too safe is finally biting Romney in the rear end. He’s refused | Read More »
