MSM Embargo of Biden's Gaffe-Fest Reaches Five Days

MSM Embargo of Biden's Gaffe-Fest Reaches Five Days

| October 7, 2008 | Reply

Ace has made an observation. Almost five days have passed since Joe Biden gaffed his way through the VP Debate and there hasn’t been a single MSM story about any of them. Oh, there have been several stories praising him, as Jonah Goldberg points out, but not one taking him to task for his made-up […]

Steyn on the Debate: Joe Biden is a Terrible Fantasist, But He Gets Great Press

Steyn on the Debate: Joe Biden is a Terrible Fantasist, But He Gets Great Press

| October 5, 2008 | Reply

Mark Steyn has wandered back from the wilderness with a blisteringly arch column on the Vice Presidential debate. He is, as he always is, a must-read. By contrast, Senator Biden was glib and fluent and in command of the facts — if by “in command of the facts” you mean “talks complete blithering balderdash and […]

Oh my dear Lord! I was watching Sean Hannity and Alan Colmes on Fox and Dick Morris absolutely destroyed Colmes. After Morris and Hannity talked a bit about the debate and Morris unabashedly called it for Palin, by a mile, Colmes started his part of the questioning. He got about five seconds into what sounded […]

I’m set to begin the live-blogging, and I’m looking forward to seeing what each candidate brings to the table for us tonight. Check here for my pre-debate comments. This may not be the Thrilla in Manila, but I’m guessing that someone’s campaign is going to take a chin shot tonight. And here’s a nice bit […]

Tonight's Veep Debate – Pregame Strategy

With one hour to go until Sarah Palin and Joe Biden face off in front of ethically-challenged moderator Gwen Ifill, each candidate is walking a tightrope and if they slip, they lose. Joe Biden’s course is pretty easy, were he a normal human being. He has to avoid saying something colossally stupid and he can’t […]

If you haven’t caught this story, which set the right-side blogosphere aflame yesterday, here it is in a nutshell. Ifill is an alleged journalist who is scheduled to moderate tonight’s VP debate. She has a book coming out touting an “Age of Obama”, which gives her a decided financial interest in the outcome of the […]

I was cleaning out a couple folders on the computer at my office, mostly getting rid of old files I didn’t need to keep around, and this dialogue box popped up: If only, friend computer, if only…

How quickly would the MSM have jumped on this statement had Sarah Palin made it? “Catholic social doctrine as I was taught it is, you take care of people who need the help the most,” he said. “Now it’d be different if you could make the case to me that by giving this tax cut […]

Fascist? Yeah, I think Barack Obama might be passingly familiar with that word. Seriously, what sort of MSM coverage do you think we might be seeing if, not once but twice, the McCain campaign’s official web page called for supporters to disrupt a popular radio show because of who the guest was? Say what you […]

The blogosphere is a bit abuzz about Joe Biden’s appearance yesterday on Meet the Press where he said that, according to his faith, life begins at conception. Pro-life folks are pointing and yelling “A-ha!” and pro-choice folks are in a bit of a pout and looking for Biden to revise his remarks. The problem wasn’t […]
