The Times Raises the Zombies.

The Times Raises the Zombies.

| June 29, 2005

Well, the President sure seems to have riled the board over at the New York Times. In fact, it’s riled them so much that they’ve gotten out the chicken blood and reanimated the old liberal corpses to stumble about the argument and menace the weak-hearted. What zombies have the Times invoked to combat a pretty […]

Ever wonder why Senator Byrd’s membership in the KKK hasn’t been a bigger issue in the past? Byron York shows us that a good part of that reason might just be due to the Washington Post who, it appears, has steadfastly refused to make an issue of it.

Here’s the text of the President’s speech, delivered tonight. It’s worth reading. Remember, when you do, that we have a lot of work left to do, but that we’re getting it all done. Here’s a part that spoke very strongly to me. We have more work to do, and there will be tough moments that […]

Robbie, the Devil’s Advocate has declared an open commenting season on a thought he had last week. Actually, he’s not quite done that. He’s asked that bloggers who are inclined to comment on his thread instead turn their comments into a blog post. And so I shall. Writing on the released autopsy report, Robbie said […]

Why would they bother? NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) – Three of the four broadcast networks had yet to decide late Monday whether they would carry President Bush’s speech on Iraq Tuesday in front of soldiers in Fort Bragg, N.C. By then, only ABC had said it would carry the address. The White House formally requested […]

You are being lied to. Ever day, you’re being told how bad things are in Iraq, that we’re in a developing quagmire, a junior toddler quagmire, or a mature adult quagmire looking forward to retirement. You’re told that there’s no good reason for us to be in Iraq, that we’re doing no good there, and […]

God save us from actors with a political agenda. The Washington Post this morning has a profile of Tim Robbins, who appears in the soon-to-be-released “War of the Worlds”. Get your blood sugar monitoring machines, folks, we’re in for a saccharine-sweet ride through puffpieceland. But “War of the Worlds” isn’t your usual blockbuster sci-fi, action-hero […]

Ever since Karl Rove made his statements that have ignited Demcorats into little bonfires of righteous anger, the most common complaint we’ve heard is that Rove’s comments weren’t accurate. We’re told that this is a lie and that liberals are fine upstanding people who love America and want us to win the war we’re in. […]

This seems interesting. In a lengthy memo published on the newspaper’s Web site, Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times, announced several new policies in response to a recent report by the paper’s Credibility Committee. Among them is a fresh attempt to diversify the Times’ staff and viewpoints, and not in the usual […]

SCOTUS Says, the Ten Commandments are Sort of Constitutional.

Maybe the Supreme Court actually wants Congress to step in and limit its power. That may be the only thing that can explain its recent decisions, including the most recent pair of decisions on the public display of the Ten Commandments. Essentially, the Court decided that you could display the Commandments in a public place, […]
