Plus: Geppetto gets cancellation notice
WaPo fact check on Obama’s denial of drawing a ‘red line’: Yeah, he drew it, but wishes he hadn’t, so it’s not a lie
**Written by Doug Powers Image credit: FreakingNews.com This is one of the more comical “fact checks” in recent memory. At question is whether President Obama drew a “red line” on Syria’s movement and use of chemical weapons even though recently Obama claimed that he didn’t draw that line, but rather “the world” did. The shorter […]
Here’s to fact checking
Washington Post pays 2013 dividends now so investors can avoid tax increases championed by president the paper endorsed
**Written by Doug Powers In October, the Washington Post backed President Obama for re-election, praising his proposed “balance of entitlement reform and revenue [tax] increases” that could take effect in January of 2013. Obama may well get his way and taxes could soon go up on $250k and up earners (and maybe everybody). With that […]
“Extreme Ryan Makeover” not working
Three Pinocchios and Geppetto doubled over in laughter
Indecipherable to the most brilliant liberal scholars
Dhimmitude of comic proportions
Oh, the incivility!
“…sour, angry, even dangerous.”
Looks like shark-jumping season at the Washington Post. The PR team has just launched a contest for “America’s Next Great Pundit.” Really. Just arrived in my e-mailbox: Aspiring pundits across the country have the chance to be “America’s Next Great Pundit” by entering The Washington Post’s political columnist competition. Starting today The Washington Post opinions […]
Ouch, my sides hurt from laughing. The Washington Post says its newsroom didn’t know about the pimp deal its business/marketing side was making. The flyer advertising pay-per-view meetings with Washington Post reporters and editors and Obama officials wasn’t properly “vetted,” the paper tells Politico. Uh-huh: Post spokesperson Kris Coratti has now sent the following statement […]
Pimps and things.
In the tank.
Look in the mirror, MSM.
Awaiting fairness and balance.
Hey, WaPo: Your bias is showing.
What if tens of thousands of protesters poured into Washington, D.C., exercising their free speech and joining peacefully to participate in public debate? How would the MSM cover them? If it’s tens of thousands of pro-illegal alien marchers, they get front-page, banner headline-plus-multimedia bonanza, panoramic coverage gushing over their ability to “flood the Mall” with […]
***scroll for updates*** Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank turned up on an MSNBC show to talk about the Cheney accidental hunting trip shooting wearing this costume: Download and watch the video (Windows Media .wmv file). Hat tip: Tom Elia at The New Editor, who rightly raises his eyebrow at Milbank’s display of less-than-objective journalism. What […]
Time and again, Washington Post Style reporter Robin Givhan hides behind fashion snarking and culture reporting to savage conservatives. She did it with Katherine Harris and Dick Cheney and John Bolton–and I’m sure you can remember many more examples of partisan mockery. Well, today’s conservative-bashing Style commentary sinks to the lowest low. The piece, “An […]
Washington Post editorial: WHO LEADS the world in jailing reporters? That’s an easy one: China has been the champion for the past six years, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. The Washington Post’s managing editor, Philip Bennett, apparently has a more upbeat view about China. He was quoted by People’s Daily Online three months […]
The Washington Post laid into the Air Force Academy this weekend over claims of religious intolerance by chaplains, instructors, and a coach. For a more informed perspective, read analysis from The Claremont Institute’s Ken Masugi, who taught at USAFA, here and here.
A former Marine corps reservist takes on the Washington Post’s Rajiv Chandrasekaran and the rest of the newspaper’s Baghdad bureau. A sample: Iraq veterans often say they are confused by American news coverage, because their experience differs so greatly from what journalists report. Soldiers and Marines point to the slow, steady progress in almost all […]
