Am I actually seeing Morning Joe reporting on the media difference?

The difference in Wisconsin coverage that is, why yes, Politico wrote about the double standard concerning "signs": “The mainstream media’s professed concern with uncivil engages only when it is practiced by conservatives,” asserted the Washington Post’s conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin. And conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, who has made her blog something of a clearinghouse of … Continue reading Am I actually seeing Morning Joe reporting on the media difference?

Sit Down Pam Geller Light might be dawning on Marblehead MSNBC

As a person who follows the war on terror and radical Islam, I have read many stories like this: In the weeks before the New Year's Day suicide bombing of an Egyptian church, al-Qaida-linked websites carried a how-to manual on "destroying the cross," complete with videos on how to build a bomb and the locations … Continue reading Sit Down Pam Geller Light might be dawning on Marblehead MSNBC

This is a good thing

Will it make a difference? Who knows, but if the Hollywood types want to protest something is a nice change for them to protest an actual tyranny: Academy Award winners Paul Haggis and Sean Penn, along with film producer and movie studio chairman Harvey Weinstein, have joined forces with British-Iranian actress and Amnesty International USA … Continue reading This is a good thing

Liu Xiaobo wins peace prize, dictators shocked!

to the shock of Jay Nordlinger and dictators everywhere, the Nobel prize committee has decided to do its job! In a statement, the Nobel Committee said Liu, 54, deserved the prize "for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China." Analysts said the honor was aimed at pressuring China to ease its … Continue reading Liu Xiaobo wins peace prize, dictators shocked!

It’s so rare when the Obama administration does something right…

...so lets give them a cheer for this: Yesterday, President Obama spoke with Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta to inform him that he will be awarded the Medal of Honor for acts of gallantry at the risk of his life that went above and beyond the call of duty. Sergeant Giunta will be the first living … Continue reading It’s so rare when the Obama administration does something right…

Credit where credit is due:

A few days ago I noted that Andrew Sullivan was making Charles Johnson look like his old self, but now Johnson has managed to grab a little bit of his old mojo back: The British-based Reuters news agency has been stung for the second time by charges that it edited politically sensitive photos in a … Continue reading Credit where credit is due:

Answer: So tone deaf that they have me and John Cole on the same page

Question: How tone deaf are the democrats on their new immigration bill? Imagine my surprise when after writing this post in the morning to see John Cole who I've hit in the past saying this: Apparently they think the outcry over the Arizona “SHOW YOUR PAPERS” bill is that it will only be applied to … Continue reading Answer: So tone deaf that they have me and John Cole on the same page

Misty pixel colored memories of the Way we were….

I haven't had much time for fun lately, I've missed game night more than I've made it. I haven't played Civ IV in I don't remember how long, I've got 5 different books I have to finish and review. So tweaking Charles Johnson is about as far down my list of things to do as … Continue reading Misty pixel colored memories of the Way we were….

I see the NYT has written the closest thing…

...to a fair story on the pope that they will likely ever produce: This isn’t an isolated case. In the 1990s, it was Ratzinger who pushed for a full investigation of Hans Hermann Groer, the Vienna cardinal accused of pedophilia, only to have his efforts blocked in the Vatican. It was Ratzinger who persuaded John … Continue reading I see the NYT has written the closest thing…

Say Thanks for Palin and the Tea Partiers for this one…

don't think for one minute that the president would be defying his leftist friends if he didn't need to recover from their pushback. In a move that could help win Republican support for other energy initiatives, President Obama will announce plans Wednesday to open large sections of the eastern Gulf of Mexico and an area … Continue reading Say Thanks for Palin and the Tea Partiers for this one…

It’s pretty sad where Lawrence O’Donnell is the voice of reason…

...but today (and yesterday) on Morning Joe he is. "I don't understand about Wall Street and I don't pretend to." but when it comes to how bills get passed how things work on the finance committee he knows it. He compared it to turning a triple play yesterday. "The rules committee is a total scam". … Continue reading It’s pretty sad where Lawrence O’Donnell is the voice of reason…

Hey suddenly the Patriot act doesn’t looks so bad…

Let's take the way back machine to December of 2008 in the first few weeks of this blog... You can take this to the bank: Any successful attack on American soil during an Obama administration is going to be wholly owned by not only that administration but the Democratic party. It won’t matter how diligent … Continue reading Hey suddenly the Patriot act doesn’t looks so bad…

Andrew Sullivan’s Mea Culpa…

is worth a read. It is something that a lot of mainstream journalists owe us. Although he does indulge in his normal Palin derangement/Sullivan's syndrome behavior he still deserves credit for it.. I can't help but tweak him however over one statement that is so funny that you had better not be drinking when you … Continue reading Andrew Sullivan’s Mea Culpa…

I guess the NYT has a long memory…

...thus even Charles Johnson's (peace be upon him) sudden reverse of direction was not enough for them to give him the type of undying love that those who leave the right normally get. In fact when you have Robert Stacy McCain & Patterico on the same side concerning this you know it must be bad … Continue reading I guess the NYT has a long memory…

A Palin cult is just as bad as an Obama one

...to paraphrase my favorite president Grover Cleveland. Camp of the Saints rightly points out that if we treat Sarah the way the media treated President Obama during the last election, we will not only be wrong but we will be doing ourselves and her no favors: Friendly advice should be taken as such. And conservatives … Continue reading A Palin cult is just as bad as an Obama one
