Your tax dollars at ‘work’: NPR producer on Journolist mocks Limbaugh’s heart attack


This morning, the Daily Caller rolled out additional damning details from the archives of Journolist, the “missing link” that finally proves the existence of that once mythical creature, Liberalis Medius Biasus.
I remember when everyone from “media guru” Jeff Jarvis to Glenn Beck (as he recalled on the air yesterday) assured us (often with an indulgent [...]

Susan Sarandon’s ex-boyfriend bemoans life as a ’slave’


No, not that kind of “slave” — although I don’t claim any insider knowledge into the intimate lives of actors Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, who split earlier this year after 23 years (and two children) together.
Here’s Robbins talking to the UK Telegraph about his “mid-life crisis” and other matters:
Robbins, an outspoken political activist, [...]

“Filed Off Faces” vs Chopped off Heads


Is the West trying to lose the war against Islamic supremacy? As the ten year anniversary of 9/11 grows nearer, I’m less optimistic with each passing day. Time and again, we are treated to tales of appeasement and just plain stupidity on the part of those in authority to whom we’ve entrusted the task.
Here’s the [...]

Ed Schultz: Harry Reid is “Ball-Less”


I listen to conservative talk radio because I’m a fan, and also because I write the Talk Radio Watch column for WND. Luckily, blogger Brian Maloney (the “Radio Equalizer”) listens to the noise on the left side of the dial, so I don’t have to.
This week, he manfully chronicled what seems to be a secret [...]

“Michael Moore is an Artistic and Intellectual Thief”


Jack Lail is News Director of Innovation for the Knoxville News Sentinel. At his blog Random Musings, Lail accuses serial liar and “documentarian” Michael Moore with violating federal copyright laws. Lail explains:
On July 5, while most Americans were enjoying a Fourth of July day off, Knoxville News Sentinel reporter Frank Munger and photographer Michael Patrick [...]

Geraldo Rivera: even a broken nose is right twice a day


My late mother enjoyed passing judgment on certain celebrities whenever they flashed on the TV:
“She hasn’t aged well;” “That’s a wig he’s got on;” “He always played the gangster;” and — whenever Geraldo Rivera popped up with another “undercover investigation” for ABC — “He’s gonna get himself killed one day.”

It was the “Serpico/Watergate” era, and [...]

New Black Panther Party to Glenn Beck: “We’ll Be Seeing You”


I’d originally typed “The New Black Panther Party has been in the news lately,” when I realized that wasn’t actually the case. Only FOX News, talk radio and conservative bloggers have been pushing the story about Obama’s Justice Department dropping charges against Party members caught on tape blatantly intimidating voters at a polling station back [...]

Journalists: Your Moral and Intellectual Superiors!


A keen-eyed Bill Kristol draws our attention to a sentence in today’s USA Today that, arguably, contradicts itself, depending upon how you define the word “scattering”:
[Tea Partiers] are overwhelmingly white and Anglo, although a scattering of Hispanics, Asian Americans and African Americans combine to make up almost one-fourth of their ranks.
As Kristol notes (and someone [...]

Sobering Thoughts for Canada Day


Canadians are obsessed with the topic of “Canadian identity.” Me? I have a Canadian birth certificate and passport and so on, but I have Israeli and U.S. flags on my desk, not a Canadian one. I was never very patriotic, except in the usual “Canadian” sense of loving SCTV and getting chills from Gordon Lightfoot’s [...]

Ann Coulter ‘could not be reached immediately for comment’


Yeah, I don’t think that’ll be a problem for long…
Regular readers may recall my coverage of the Ann Coulter Riot in Ottawa a few months back. (I know: we’re having so many riots up here lately, Canada’s poised to lose its Most Boring Nation Triple-A status.) In case you’ve forgotten what happened when Ann Coulter [...]
