Chip Diller: Remain Calm all is well. Animal House 1978 Yesterday the latest cards in the White House Obamacare propaganda war for election 2014 were played.

Chris Cillizza Channels Jesse Myerson (or Journo-list)

I was looking at Chris Cillizza's piece in the post concerning Rand Paul and Bill Clinton some posts around it I was instantly reminded me of Robert Stacy McCain's exchanges with Jesse Myerson. The Success of Jesse Myerson's attempt to rationalize communism success is dependent on reaching a group of Salon readers who are not … Continue reading Chris Cillizza Channels Jesse Myerson (or Journo-list)

Incompetent Journo-lists

The Center of Economic and Policy Research decided certain questions are signs on incompetence namely: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" While the source is not clear, someone developed a simple way to identify incompetent news reporters. If you hear a reporter ask people in President Obama's administration, ideally in a … Continue reading Incompetent Journo-lists

Talking Points Memo to Soledad O’Brien to you Via CNN

I'm constantly shocked when I try to follow Stacy's Rule three by checking Memeorandum how Talking Points Memo is constantly represented at the top-level of the site. A day does not pass when TPM doesn't have a Top level story on the Memeorandum page, the question is how do they manage it? Yesterday CNN's Soledad … Continue reading Talking Points Memo to Soledad O’Brien to you Via CNN

Romney vs “Journolist” advantage Romney

There is a lot of hand wringing in the MSM over David Axelrod's disrupted appearance in Boston yesterday. Morning Joe has spent almost their entire show going after Romney tactics, particularly the fact that Romney directly addressed the idea of "you heckle us, we'll heckle you" business. While Morning Joe was upset Conservatives gleefully reported … Continue reading Romney vs “Journolist” advantage Romney

Jake Tapper throws a wrench in the tax Narrative

If you want to know why Jake Tapper will never get invited for coffee like Ezra (journo-list) Klein and company by the white house operation. It's because of stories like this: Officials from the policy-neutral National Payroll Reporting Consortium, Inc. have expressed concern to members of Congress that the two-month payroll tax holiday passed by … Continue reading Jake Tapper throws a wrench in the tax Narrative

MSNBC Journalism No questions for Bill Clinton on Herman Cain

One of the things we constantly hear about the MSM is their willingness to ask the questions we can't. Consider this clip of Chuck Todd: "It's my responsibility to ask the tough questions...I have unique access... I'd better use that access for a greater good" Today there is a big press conference with Herman Cain … Continue reading MSNBC Journalism No questions for Bill Clinton on Herman Cain

More CBS/NYT poll spin

Apparently some people hope the public can be easily fooled, particularly if they didn't look closely at the CBS/NYT poll: The new CBS News/New York Times poll finds voters souring on the Tea Party and John Boehner after Debt Hot American Summer* -- a pyhrric victory for Democrats, but I'd bet they'll take it. John … Continue reading More CBS/NYT poll spin

Exhibit A in the Stop Palin Campaign, Dave Journolist Weigel

I've commented a few times on how the media has, for the most part ignored Herman Cain and his early success. Yesterday Dave Weigel wrote quite a few excellent posts but the most interesting was concerning a Gallup poll and Herman Cain: Cain has come out of the gate making knowledge blunders (not knowing what … Continue reading Exhibit A in the Stop Palin Campaign, Dave Journolist Weigel

Morning Joe “Knowing your Value” special: Ed who?

Today Mika's much touted special on women Knowing their Value and the empowerment of women was broadcast (ok it still has 13 minutes left to it. This is all about women knowing their worth and what should be done to advance it. Ironically this comes 24 hours after Ed Schultz of MSNBC and an occasional … Continue reading Morning Joe “Knowing your Value” special: Ed who?

What move to the center? When did Obama move to the center? Did I miss something?

Can someone tell me where this move to the center is? Since the election every network (except Fox of course) has one word for the president: "centrist", "centrist" "centrist". Son of Journolist lives! Correct me if I'm wrong, but the President made one deal to avoid an embarrassing defeat concerning taxes. That's it. If the … Continue reading What move to the center? When did Obama move to the center? Did I miss something?

Ezra still has that Journolist perspective

Stacy Teases him but I think the headline is really revealing. Do the pollsemphasis mine back up the attacks on the Chamber of Commerce? Not do the facts, not does the evidence, do the polls! Remember in the days of Journolist (you know that scandal that the Morning Joe crew never asked Ezra about during … Continue reading Ezra still has that Journolist perspective

Jay Nordlinger: Journolist; Picked over by whom?

Jay Nordlinger's new column starts with this phrase: I know that “Journolist” has been mightily picked over — and picked on ... Ah Jay it all depends on the audiance.

Trig Trutherism hits Andrew Sullivan with a cluebat

Who knew that Sullivan's Syndrome might have a positive side effect: If you want to know why the allegedly liberal media didn't touch - and still won't touch - this story, look no further. It has nothing to do with the facts, and everything to do with their politics. Notice the core modus operandi of … Continue reading Trig Trutherism hits Andrew Sullivan with a cluebat
