Journalists Being Journ-O-Listy: "Operation: ZOMG! Get Palin!" Has Begun

This is a thing that is really happening right now. If your idea of an engrossing tour through American history is reading 24,199 pages of emails from Sarah Palin’s first two years as governor of Alaska, then set aside some time this weekend. A free, searchable, online archive of the former governor’s public records is […]

So, Howard Kurtz, is there anything you’d like to say to us this evening? [blackbirdpie url="http://twitter.com/HowardKurtz/status/75195588559372289"] Well, anything besides, “Not only are they disappointed. I think they’re hysterical”. Image thanks to the peerless Slublog.

Why #WeinerGate Ticks Me Off

I admit, when the #WeinerGate story (see Stacy McCain or Big Government for full *ahem* coverage) first broke over the Memorial Day weekend, it amused the heck out of me. It had all the elements of funny: an arrogant, self-important politician, hubris, an underwear-clad crotch. What’s not to laugh about there? However, the more the […]

Now that SMP Mike has released Episode 95 into the wild, The Delivery is five weeks from its 100th episode and a bit under two months from its second birthday. I mention that because being a successful broadcaster has been a dream of mine since I was young. Now, you might not think that a […]

I know we conservatives yack on about media bias, often to the point where we sound like a shelf full of “Tickle Me NewsBusters” dolls whose squawk buttons have all been pushed at the same time. But the bias really does exist and it’s not very often overt. Most times, even seasoned news hounds don’t […]

The New MSM Meme: Jon Huntsman, The Man Who Scares Democrats

| May 18, 2011 | 3 Replies

There’s an old saying that goes “Once is happenstance; twice is coincidence; the third time is enemy action.” It’s a useful phrase to remember during a Presidential election season as you can use it to identify interesting new memes coming out of the MSM. Take, for instance, the story reported last week by Jake Tapper […]

The theme of Episode 91 is the narrative the media are building in anticipation of the 2012 election. I did take a brief second-half detour down memory lane prompted by the Easter Holiday and my yearly Jesus Christ Superstar tradition. My post at the Sundries Shack that prompted the first half of the show is […]

I endorse every word of Moe Lane’s blog post to ABC News. It is April of 2011.  We do not actually need to have everybody and his/her brother/sister declaring for the freaking Republican nomination, simply because Barack Obama needed to declare as early as possible that he was running so that he can get a head […]

| April 12, 2011 | 5 Replies

I can not imagine a blogger that does less with more than the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein. All he has to do is occasionally put up a random chart with nice pretty lines that end right about where he wants them to end and write a few paragraphs that sound like serious policy proposals and, […]
