WHERE TO HANG OUT TONIGHT

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2004 08:25 PM

Just a reminder that The Command Post will be opening its chat room tonight at 8:45pm. I will try to stop by, but my 4-year-old is wired and I may be away from the TV and computer, ensconced in a princess castle loft bed reading Junie B. Jones, during much of the debate. CNET has […]

NBC’S DRAFT-MONGERING DISHONESTY

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2004 02:21 PM

CBS News isn’t the only one failing to disclose the political activism of purportedly ordinary Americans fearful of the return of a draft. NBC News has its own Beverly Cocco. His name is Jeremy Tor. Here’s the full transcript of the draft-mongering segment that ran on NBC Nightly News last night: TOM BROKAW, anchor: One […]

CAMERON DIAZ: COMIC GENIUS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2004 01:22 PM

I always wondered what people were talking about when they praised Cameron Diaz’s comedic skills. Now, I get it. The goofy actress was hysterical on Oprah yesterday! Laura Ingraham read Cam’s comments on her radio show this morning and Drudge posted a transcript excerpt this afternoon: Ms. DIAZ: We have a voice now, and we’re […]

WHO IS BEVERLY COCCO?

Bill at INDC Journal, pit-bull blogger extraordinaire who nabbed interviews with CBS News staffers over their scare-mongering draft story, is all over this. Check his blog for frequent updates if you haven’t already. Jeff at Protein Wisdom adds more here. Like this:Like Loading…

THE MOTHER OF ALL STADIUM BOONDOGGLES

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 30, 2004 11:10 AM

The media cheerleading here in the D.C. area over the Expos deal is nauseating. I have nothing against baseball. I have everything against taxpayer-funded sports statism. (A commendable exception to the media slavering over this government rip-off is the Washington Times, whose scathing editorial today is dead-on.) Way back before I knew what a blog […]

MR. PERFECT FOR PRESIDENT

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2004 05:04 PM

My pre-debate column is here. Snippet: This isn’t a race for prom king or “Jeopardy!” champion. It’s a race for leader of the free world. For other perspectives before tomorrow’s big event, see Keith Burgess-Jackson on style/substance. He also has interesting thoughts on liberal frustration. David Limbaugh dissects Kerry’s unlikeability and examines Al Gore’s advice […]

NEW YORK POST/NEW YORK TIMES SMACKDOWN

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2004 02:14 AM

The Post wins hands down. Update: Ace of Spades, one of my must-reads every day, has much more on the Times’s reporter Philip Shenon. Unbelievable. Like this:Like Loading…

STOP VOTER FRAUD: REQUIRE ID

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2004 01:48 AM

John Fund’s new book, Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, just arrived in the mail from Encounter Books. (Here‘s the intro.) And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Voter fraud is breaking out all over: In Tennessee, a temporary employee of the left-wing group Tennessee Citizen Action is being investigated for […]

LASER-INJURED PILOT ON DELTA FLIGHT?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2004 11:05 PM

Just heard Washington Times reporter Bill Gertz tease a disturbing story on FOX News a few minutes ago. He said he’ll have a piece in the paper tomorrow about a Delta flight to Salt Lake City, Utah, that was diverted last week when a laser penetrated the cockpit. He reported that the pilot was injured […]

THE HEAD-CHOPPERS MEET THE HAND-CHOPPERS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2004 09:45 PM

The Washington Times reports on an alleged meeting between suspected al Qaeda operative Adnan Shukrijumah and the savage El Salvador-based gang, Mara Salvatrucha: A top al Qaeda lieutenant has met with leaders of a violent Salvadoran criminal gang with roots in Mexico and the United States — including a stronghold in the Washington area — […]

THE CAUSES OF CHILDHOOD OBESITY

By thisistwitchy  •  September 28, 2004 11:14 AM

Mike Fumento has a new article about the link between childhood obesity and television. He cites a number of scientific studies, one of which estimates that almost a third of childhood obesity could be eliminated if TV viewing were reduced to an hour or less per week. For a different angle, see Mary Eberstadt’s new […]

Do you have better health care today than you did five years ago?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2004 06:26 AM

Daily Kos discusses a Families USA report asking whether families have better health care today than they did four years ago. The report cites all kinds of grim statistics, such as rising health insurance premiums and an increase in the number of Americans without insurance. My health insurance is much less generous than it was […]

HOW MUCH MOBILITY IS THERE IN THE BLOGOSPHERIC ECOSYSTEM?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2004 06:03 AM

In the LA Times, former blogger Billmon writes that bloggers have sold out. His thesis is that “[a]s blogs commercialize, they are tied ever closer to the mainstream media and its increasingly frivolous news agenda.” I was particularly interested in his argument that “a charmed circle of bloggers” is gaining “larger audiences and greater influence,” […]

HEADLINE OF THE DAY

Washington Times: Mexican official seeks open border Which prompted one poster on Free Republic to respond: How come he can’t find it? Everybody else in his country can. Here, courtesy of the Eggle family, are some photos in case the government official, the Mexican Foreign Ministry’s institutional liaison for northern border affairs, needed some direction: […]

JOHN KERRY’S GUN SMOKE

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 27, 2004 02:10 AM

Oh, my Gawd. The story in the New York Times about John Kerry’s Chinese assault rifle fraud is so pathetically funny that I have to quote it in full (my comments added): No Assault Rifle for Kerry, After All By JODI WILGOREN Published: September 27, 2004 Senator John Kerry’s campaign said yesterday that Mr. Kerry […]

STEVE SAILER VINDICATED

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2004 07:01 AM

For three years, Steve Sailer has been pointing out that the much-ballyhooed Hispanic vote isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For a long time, he was pretty much the only one making this argument. Now, as he points out on VDARE’s new blog, a demographer at the Brookings Institution agrees with him. According to […]

THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS STILL IN DENIAL

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 26, 2004 05:56 AM

David Broder, the elite of the liberal media elite, shows in the Washington Post that MSM journalists still don’t get it: We don’t yet know who will win the 2004 election, but we know who has lost it. The American news media have been clobbered. So far so good, but keep reading. In a year […]

SHOWDOWN: PAJAMAS MEDIA VS. BLOGADS

By thisistwitchy  •  September 25, 2004 11:14 AM

A few weeks ago, Roger Simon said his new blogger consortium, Pajamas Media, does “not wish to go into competition with Henry Copeland’s BlogAds, which we fully support.” But in an interview with John Hawkins, Simon’s colleague Marc Danziger seems to suggest a change of heart: John Hawkins: The advertising deal you’re going to be […]

SCARING UP THE GOP VOTE

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2004 11:59 AM

A few days ago, I blogged about stupid Democratic scare tactics. Now, here’s a not-so-bright one from the RNC that has been making the rounds on liberal blogs and an AP report titled GOP Mailing Warns Liberals Will Ban Bibles. Steve Clemons has a photo of the front and back of the flyer. Clemons notes: […]
