No Irish Need Invent Urban Legends About ‘No Irish Need Apply’ Signs


My NewsReal colleague Michelle Horstman has penned a fine post espousing an even finer sentiment: that the Irish should serve as a great example to other ethnic newcomers; despite breathtaking, backbreaking hardship, they eventually embraced the American melting-pot model and assimilated into the broader culture, without losing their distinctive cultural and religious traditions.

Journalists: your moral and intellectual superiors


It’s one thing for my aged, cataract’d mother-in-law to mistake Vice President Joe Biden for Gorbachev yesterday.
But here’s a UK broadcast demi-journalist, illustrating once again why “normal” people hate Big Media:

Candace de Russy: Hate-America Sociology – Minding The Campus


Recently, a colleague forwarded to me a copy of an exam from an introductory sociology class found lying in a room at a public college in the east. It was graded 100%. The exam deserves to be quoted at length, as parts of it are virtually indistinguishable from the old Soviet agitprop of the Fifties: […]

Rebuttal: My, what Overwhelming Faith you Have in Your Government…

Radical Analysis for a Radical Religion, Part 1: Did Al Qaeda “Distort” Islam?


As the President gave his long-awaited speech on his Afghanistan strategy a few weeks ago I sat live-tweeting responses and trying to anticipate how NewsReal’s bloggers might respond to it.
