Two sentences from a recent New York Times article on Jared Loughner, the Arizona shooter, that you might find interesting:
[Mr. Loughner’s] anger would well up at the sight of President George W. Bush — a standard reaction among left-wing extremist groups.
Mr. Loughner said that he had paid for his courses illegally because, “I did not […]
Why not? They fact-checked a Saturday Night Live Skit. But I’m not holding my breath.
On my way to work this morning, I heard a few seconds of a guy with a foreign accent awarding what sounded like a Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama. My reaction was: I was almost certain I was listening to […]
During the Bush administration, the Times and other media outlets routinely disparaged job creation as somehow beneath the dignity of the workers, even as wages rose and unemployment fell. The work was demeaning and mundane, and the pay inadequate. Every chance they had to use anecdotal complaints about supposed burger-flipping or paper-shifting wound […]
Last month, Newsbusters pointed out the bias in a McClatchy headline impugning Alaska governor Sarah Palin for the conduct of her extended family, “Those crazy Palins: Todd’s half sister indicted in break-ins.”
Has McClatchy ever had any headlines like this: “Those Crazy Kennedys”? After all, there is a wealth of craziness with that demented […]
Arizona State University says it will not bestow an honorary degree on President Barack Obama – the esteemed Harvard University Law professor, former U.S. Senator, best-selling author, Grammy Award-winner, and undeniable leader of the free world – saying it is not clear that his body of work justifies such an honor.

They show that people are beginning to realize how unprepared and perhaps unqualified Barack Obama is to be president at this critical time. They show that people are wondering why no one is leading in this […]
The incompetence that led to Keith Olbermann naming Twitter the “Worst Person in the World” is staggering. He smeared the popular service, Fox News, and a fellow liberal Democrat enemy of Fox News, all because he got an email he didn’t understand, about a technology he didn’t understand, and neither he nor his staff did […]
Like night and day:
Barack Obama, in 2004, practically got all three male PBS anchors to announce, right there on national TV, that they were gay for him:
Sarah Palin, in 2008, could hardly give a speech without making Gwen Ifill feel like vomiting:
Ifill’s loftiest (only) praise of Palin: “She delivered her speech word for word.”
I will pay good money to see someone with some video editing skills (Ryan?) put Charles Gibson’s Sarah Palin interview(s) up against his interviews of Barack Obama and John Edwards. Particularly, I am interested in seeing all three interviews mashed together, so that we can compare every question Gibson posed to the candidates.
Some have already […]
