Andrea Mitchell's April Fools Joke

Watching the evening news I caught a report by Andrea Mitchell on the Nuclear Security Conference that is now being held, appropriately enough, on April Fools Day. It is obviously part of a PR effort to build international support for our shiny new war on ISIS. Read more about Andrea Mitchell's April Fools Joke

Why would anyone quote Steve Israel on the subject of electability

Clinton’s lead is evaporating, and anxious Democrats see 2008 all over again

“There’s definitely an elevated concern expressed in the cloakroom and members-only elevators, and other places, about the impact of a Sanders nomination on congressional candidates,” Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) said.

I blame the media

Green Day - American Idiot

The kind of rank corruption, violence, and hysteria of contemporary American society would not be possible if we had an honest news media, or even just a mediocre media. They are enablers, all of them. Read more about I blame the media

2016 will NOT be like 1972

quick note about Yglesias; Vox is funded by Comcast, which recieves $1000/per month/per wiretap of their internet customers. Indescrminate wiretaps have been very profitable for Comcast, and we can expect continued attacks on Sanders by both Vox and NBC/CNBC/MSNBC. Similarly Amazon holds the cloud computing contract for the CIA, so we can expect the Washington Post to be very negative about Sanders.

The media hates Hillary Clinton

New poll showing Clinton beating everyone is reported as bad news for Hillary

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Hillary Clinton coasting to a crushing victory in a three-way race against Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, winning 45 percent of the vote, compared with 22 for Sanders and 18 for Biden.

And the good news for Clinton doesn't stop there.

Bernie and the press

Enjoy the cute curmudgeonly socialist from Vermont who can't possibly win phase while it lasts. Directly Bernie gets within 10 points of Hillary there will be a dramatic change. Remember the attacks on Howard Dean? It will be all that and more. We will learn every negative thing about Bernie and his family, true and otherwise, relevant and otherwise. I hope that Bernie's team have a plan for that. Read more about Bernie and the press

Robert Allbritton's and John Harris racist screed


Well technically it is Rich Lowry's racist screed. It is yet another blacks only care if police kill blacks, not when blacks kill blacks. It is yet another attempt to deflect public attention from police brutality. Shame on Albritton and Harris for publishing it. Harris could have politely said this really isn't right for a Politico audience. But no, Albritton and Harris hate poor people and they especially hate poor black people.

Maureen Dowd and Media Matters for America

If you want to know why Maureen Dowd hates David Brock (nope, not linking to that column, you can find it if you like) you have only to look at the work Media Matters for America has done exposing her editorial malpractice.

Brian Williams’ War Porn & the Bigger, More Pathetic Picture

FLASH: In 2003 NBC newsman Brian Williams was NOT in a helicopter that was fired upon by an Iraqi Rocket-Propelled Grenade (RPG)!!!!

A lie that Mr. Williams has shared publicly and periodically over the last decade has been exposed.

Finally, the veteran who was on the ACTUAL attacked aircraft “had had enough” of what Christian Christensen labels “WAR PORN” in “The Shame of US Journalism Is the Destruction of Iraq, Not Fake Helicopter Stories”. The veteran called out Williams on FACEBOOK! Read more about Brian Williams’ War Porn & the Bigger, More Pathetic Picture

How Kool Aid is manufactured

Ryan Lizza's write up of Jim Webb is so bad it is embarrassing.

In his senatorial race, Webb did well not only in northern Virginia, which is filled with Washington commuters and college-educated liberals, but also with rural, working-class white voters in Appalachia.
