Leaked Emails And Journalism

March 16, 2012
By

Some disccussion on the Buzzfeed, Caller, DNC leaked email kerfluffle from yesterday.

Wemple does a good job of weighing the considerations, but his use of the word "should" seems to confuse ethics and tactics. Of course press staffers shouldn't leak reporters' emails if they want reporters' trust. But reporters, partisan or not,...

Despite the law being on their side and at least some of them having risked their lives for their country, Nancy Hurlbert, Chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party basically called a group of Amercan veterans racists.

Hey, Mom! I’m In Playboy Magazine!!

March 15, 2012

They wanted a pic, but they wouldn't promise me they'd airbrush it. So I declined. See, I'm modest like that

PLAYBOY: Conservatives are as hard on you as liberals. Right-wing blogger Dan Riehl sniped that “this self-indulgent set of mega-breasts doesn’t belong anywhere near a TV studio commenting on anything.”

You can read the entire 1990 article at Ironic Surrealism. h/t this post as Gateway Pundit. The "mean-spirited" quote is in the portion I screencapped below.

Who’s The Rush Rat At Premier Networks?

March 14, 2012
By

First, John Avlon broke an alleged story on a Saturday about a massive number of advertisers who supposedly were backing off programs which would have included Rush Limbaugh's. That turned out to be bogus. I believe the source was a Premier Networks memo.

I also believe communications from Premier would flow throughout...

I Backed Newt But The Honorable Thing For Him To Do Is Drop Out

March 14, 2012
By

Via Reuters, yes, I'd say Newt's campaign is very much in doubt, alright. Now, he'll only hurt his reputation with many in the base if he remains in the race. 

"This really was his last chance to show whether he had the ability to win," said Natalie Davis, professor of political...

Political Arrogance: The Enterprise Vs. The USS John P. Murtha

March 13, 2012
By

Via the Rabid Republican blog.

When I first heard this I was at a TEA Party in Lowell. I couldn’t believe it. The US Navy – OUR US Navy – has decided to name a still-to-be-built amphibious transport after career scumbag Penn Congressman John Murtha – who served briefly in...

“Game Change” And Sandra Fluke Share Obama-Connected PR Firm

March 13, 2012
By

Fishbowl DC reported it on March 9th but didn't point out the Fluke connection. Not their thing, I guess. Jeff Poor at The Daily Caller puts the pieces together.

Last week Fox News host Bill O’Reilly revealed that Georgetown Law student and contraception advocate Sandra Fluke, perhaps known for her ill-advised...

Is Dem-linked Catalist Tied To Illegal Anti-Limbaugh Robo-Calls?

March 12, 2012
By

Toby Harnden broke the original story at the MailOnline. So far, American media have been mum on it. I'm hearing that may change, as formal complaints may soon be filed.

EXCLUSIVE: Voters targeted with illegal robocalls linking Republican politicians to Rush Limbaugh's 'slut' gaffe

An update at Gateway Pundit names Catalist as the...

Barack Obama’s Ongoing War On Women

March 12, 2012
By

Quick, someone call Hanoi Jane Fonda. Hopefully, she'll visit the oppressed women in the White House to bring aid and comfort during the third year of their, hopefully, only one term siege. I don't seem to recall reports such as this getting much major attention, despite Obama's poor history with women.

Friction...

Jane Fonda, CNN Smear Limbaugh With Out Of Context Quote

March 11, 2012
By

CNN doesn't seem to be having a very good week. First, they were embarrassed by Soledad O'Brien, now, between Jane Fonda and CNN's own site editor, they look more like a clown show, than a serious news organization. As a fan of CNN a long time ago, it breaks my...

Don Surber Doesn’t Get it, But Then, He Is The Media

March 11, 2012
By

FWIW Don Surber is a journalist and I believe his newspaper pays him and supports his blog. h/t Instapundit for this. Some people think I'm a hard ass; however, I rarely see anything from Surber unless he's being contrarian, or complaining. 

“This video will not bring down President Obama. His sorry...

"There is hope for our Nation again / Maybe for the First time Since we Had Ronald Reagan," home-schooled Tulsa, Oklahoma sisters Camille and Haley Harris of First Love Band (above) sing their hearts out in a foot-tapping, All-American video that's gone viral: "Yes I believe Rick Santorum is our man! /...

Progressives Should Stop Whining About Derrick Bell, Turnabout Is Fair Play

March 10, 2012
By

There are many lessons to be learned in giving exposure to the thinking of Derrick Bell. Some of them involve Obama but most involve the media.

A key one is how media constructs narratives in a manner damaging to conservatism. Putting aside his connection to Obama, Derrick Bell was a radical progressive....

Sarah Palin Does It Again With Civil War Reference

March 10, 2012
By

This is classic Sarah Palin. I'd wager people would be surprised to learn that progressive Obama czarist Cass Suntein agrees with her on this growing flap because Palin had the audacity to invoke the Civil War in reference to Derrick Bell. I reached the same conclusion myself studying Bell. Cass...

Paul Waldman At The American Prospect Shouldn’t Misrepresent My Work

March 9, 2012
By

It's unfortunate that all the left has to fall back on is deception, dishonesty and false accusations of racisim.

Over at Breitbart's web site, I count eight separate pieces on Derrick Bell (who died last year), trying to make the case that he was some kind of insane radical pushing radical...

Cass Sunstein: Derrick Bell Wanted To End America’s White Supremacy

March 9, 2012
By

Cass Sunstein is the Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama administration. Hopefully, now that someone in the Obama administration supports Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollack's position, over that of CNN's Soledad O'Brien on Critical Race Theory, she'll issue the correction and apology this...

#RallyforRush Why The Dem Attack On Rush Was Always Doomed To Fail

March 9, 2012
By

Michelle Malkin's Twitchy is joining Rush Limbaugh's list of advertisers

Cool!

As pointed out last night, other new advertisers are showing up on Rush's show and one that wanted back was shined on by the host. Perhaps the Democrat left can't comprehend this, as so many are not free market capitalists.

Advertising dollars will...
