“Whose Side Are They On” Example #4: The Los Angeles Times

| November 30, 2005 | Comments (4)

If it’s good news, it’s propaganda. If it’s bad news, its “fair”. Really, that’s what the Los Angeles Times is asserting in the article highlighted by Jeff Goldstein today. Yes, it may certainly appear that the real rub is that the US is paying Iraqi newspapers to run “good news” articles, but that’s not what [...]

“All Right You Primitive Screwheads, Listen Up!”

| November 30, 2005 | Comments (1)

I suppose it would have been bad politics for the President to call his speech today on Iraq and our strategy there: “Okay, for You Knuckleheads who Haven’t Been Listening to Me for the Past Two Years, Here’s the Plan AGAIN“.

I honestly don’t know what to do about this latest creation from the giant cloud of flatus that calls itself Ted Rall. Now I realize that “giant cloud of flatus” seems like a harsh phrase, but I assure you it’s not. It replaces about three paragraphs of cursing so intense that it nearly warped the [...]

Jeff Goldstein points us to what may be the article of the week. Hang with me, folks, as I quote liberally and try not to spew tea all over my keyboard in laughter. You aren’t going to believe this.
