The MSM is Not Doing Its Job on the Bailout Story

The MSM is Not Doing Its Job on the Bailout Story

Yes, this sentiment certainly seems appropriate to me (via Instapundit). If it seems like I’m waffling on the merits of bailing out Wall Street, it’s because the facts keep changing. And the President certainly didn’t help matters last night. If I had to decide on this bailout, or whatever we’re calling it, based just on […]

Yet More on the Mortgage Mess, Including What Must Happen

The more I read about this financial crisis and the potential bailout plan, the more I realize that almost no one knows what the hell they’re talking about. And I’m including pretty much every member of the MSM in that, too. Fortunately, there have been some pretty smart people writing clear explanations of what they’ve […]

Barack Obama is one of a hundred US Senators. He’s drawing a salary, paid for by you and me, to be a US Senator. Right now, the US Senate is debating whether or not to dump over 700 billion of our dollars into a financial bailout plan. Obama’s campaign counterpart, John McCain is already heading […]

Wait…what? Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.” “If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever […]

Well, you can certainly throw that whole John McCain, Media Darling thing right out the window. After his campaign accused the MSM of being little more than tools of the Obama campaign, the New York Times promptly threw a temper tantrum in the form of this article accusing his campaign manager of being a tool […]

I hope this story that just popped up in my RSS reader is a hallucination brought on by the cold medicine I just took. If it’s real, then I’m afraid that the Secretary of the Treasury has lost his ever-loving mind. In the dark of night over the weekend when most people were snoozing, the […]

Finally, an MSM outlet that has decided to do some reporting on this financial mess. Thank you, Fox News. Ace has a fine, and I mean fine, rant about Chris Dodd and Barney Frank and the rest of the Democratic Party who keep showing up on my television telling me how they’re going to fix […]

Again, blog output is slight. Right now I’m fighting off what feels like your basic fall flu bug. I am not a happy camper (lots of coughing equals very sore stomach muscles and a four-hour rolling headache) and I’m definitely not of sound enough mind to do any blogging that you’d want to read. I’m […]

I admit, after a few days of doing some pretty heavy (for me, at least) reading, I have only about a quarter of the knowledge I think I’d need to really understand how bad our financial market mess has gotten. Which, by the way, is a really, really bad thing. It’s bad because Congress is […]

Ace is promoting a news story that should be coming out later this evening about Barack Obama’s top campaign honcho David Axelrod. The story apparently will carry some substantiated allegations tht Axelrod has been violating electioneering laws thanks to a thing called “astroturfing”. Essentially, the story seems to be that Alexrod has a history, not […]
