Fight the smears.
Watching the watchdogs.
The techblogging elite, liberal femme bloggers, and their friends in the MSM are still yammering amongst themselves about the Kathy Sierra incident. Bloggers’ code of conduct. Civility badges. Blah blah blah. Big props to Mary Katharine Ham for calling out the one-eyed, left-wing women bloggers (who still won’t admit their blind spot) and for demonstrating […]
Charles Johnson takes on Howard Kurtz: There’s no comparison between the levels of profanity and hateful venom you’ll find at left-wing sites such as Huffington Post and the comments posted at Little Green Footballs. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at Howard Kurtz’s lame attempt at moral equivalence though; it’s what mainstream media does, whether […]
Photoshop by David Lunde On Fox and Friends this morning, Chris Wallace had some interesting comments about his interview with the Finger-Jabber: His reaction to Clinton accusing him of having a “smirk:” “What it was was sheer wonder at what I was witnessing.” Heh. On what happened after the interview: “There was no making up […]
Howard Kurtz’s piece on the MSM’s differential treatment of Rep. Patrick Kennedy vs. Rush Limbaugh got a lot of buzz today, but Mark Levin nails it best: Early on, prosecutors claimed they had evidence of over ten felonies. They demanded that Rush plead guilty to some felony—any felony. He refused, always insisting on his innocence. […]
***Video of announcement over at Hot Air***…transcript…AP…USA Today round-up*** ***update: Fox News confirms announcement coming Wednesday morning…more…Lucianne G.: “Tony’s courage in the face of the horror he has endured for the last couple of years sets an example for us all. Take heart from it. I will miss doing his show every Monday. I will […]
Good morning read: Howard Kurtz’s very fair, very thorough profile of Fox News Channel’s Brit Hume. Last line: “Am I going to be able to get devoted readers of the New York Times to watch Fox News? Maybe, but it would be heavy lifting,” he says. “We are in some respects the antidote.” *** Speaking […]
Howard Kurtz says something seems amiss. This is a courageous young woman. I must say, though, that I found her first interview yesterday rather odd. Carroll seemed bent on giving her captors a positive review, going on about how well they treated her, how they gave her food and let her go to the bathroom. […]
***scroll for updates…statement from NRO…Domenech speaks to Human Events Online…Ben’s statement up at Red State (there is no explanation of the apparent cribbing in the NRO piece)*** I just got home from Pittsburgh and am late heading out the door for the Abdul Rahman event in D.C., but I can’t let this blog sit silent […]
Let’s take a closer look at a rose-colored Wall Street Journal editorial on the port deal that is garnering favorable reviews from some of my friends on the right. Sayeth the WSJ: Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is the latest Republican to broadcast his “independence” from President Bush on homeland security, yesterday joining Senator Lindsey […]
I’m home. And the me-me-media’s circus continues. Growing weary of hearing themselves bray about the Cheney accidental shooting incident and having exhausted their bag full of clown wardrobe tricks, the MSM is now turning on FOX News Channel and Brit Hume, who landed last night’s exclusive interview with the veep. Oh. See. How. They. Whine. […]
***updated*** The letter from the Joint Chiefs in response to Tom Toles’ cartoon, blogged here yesterday, appears in today’s Washington Post. No response from Toles or the editors. Maybe the ombudsman will have something to say. Or more likely, given the rabid reaction she provokes on the Left, maybe not. Update: Responses from Toles and […]
So, President Bush is now begging newspaper editors to stop publishing classified information obtained via illegal leaks. Howard Kurtz reports: President Bush has been summoning newspaper editors lately in an effort to prevent publication of stories he considers damaging to national security. The efforts have failed, but the rare White House sessions with the executive […]
Two newspapers, the Modesto Bee and the Sacramento Bee, did the right thing this weekend and published lengthy explanations of how and why they came to publish the unverified claims of former Marine Staff Sgt. Jimmy Massey, the anti-war Left’s favorite slanderer of American troops. David Holwerk, Sacramento Bee editorial pages editor, wrote: We should […]
WaPo’s Howard Kurtz reports that liberal radio network Air America says its audience is “running ahead of projections.” Kurtz neglects to mention that the network’s pathetic ratings tell a different story. Update, 8:51 pm: Although Kurtz does not challenge the ridiculous “running ahead of projections” assertion, in fairness I should note his comment that Air […]
Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz seems to tell Glenn Reynolds that the MSM is paying too little attention to newly disclosed FBI documents that contained the latest Koran-in-the-toilet allegation: I don’t contend that these FBI papers, unearthed in an ACLU lawsuit, get Newsweek off the hook. But you’d think they would be getting more […]
They just won’t give up. When Bush-bashers have no substantive criticisms to make, they resort to Michael Moore’s “My Pet Goat” strategy. “My Pet Goat,” you’ll recall, was the book the president read to Florida schoolchildren for several minutes after he was informed of the terrorist attacks on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. (Correction: […]
377 tons… 3 tons… What’s the difference? CYA Update: WaPo’s Howard Kurtz writes, The principal uncertainty about the story involves the timing of the ammunition’s disappearance. The White House says the explosives may have gone missing while Saddam Hussein still controlled Iraq. “Sure there’s a possibility” that happened, [New York Times Executive Editor Bill] Keller […]
