The now-famous “Burning Down the House” video has been pulled from YouTube after a copyright complaint from the Warner Music Group. Warner Music, which is owned by the same company that owns YouTube, complained that the four songs in the video were used without its consent. They did have a point and the original maker […]

Now here’s a heck of a question (via Instapundit): For all the chest-pounding by Washington politicians, especially Democrats, about CEOs of failed banks and financial institutions receiving “golden parachutes,” why is it these guys all tend to be big bucks Democrat contributors? Speaking of big bucks contributors, here’s David Hasanyi in today’s Denver Post: Republicans […]

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 […]

The Washington Post has weighed in, in its “Fact Checker” column, on a John McCain ad and manages to make a hash of the whole thing. Whoever wrote this didn’t pay much attention to McCain’s ad and seems completely oblivious to the fact that they effectively proved the reporter who wrote the original Raines article […]

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 […]

Remember the days when the national press hired fairly dignified journalists instead of the current pack of whiny toddlers? Yeah, who knew that I’d be wishing for Chet Huntley or Robert McNeill to rise from the dead and anchor an evening news broadcast?

Oh my dear, merciful Heaven! What sort of maniac would do this? Sarah Palin brought one unusual accessory to the Alaska Governor’s mansion after moving in last year: A tanning bed. Umm…okay. And? Did I suddenly have a stroke and wake up in a world where owning a tanning bed is a mortal political sin? […]

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 […]
