Punk Max Blumenthal Gets Punk’d At CPAC


A few hours before Glenn Beck brought the house down Saturday at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)*, conservative Internet entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart gave the clownish left-wing performance artist Max Blumenthal a much deserved dressing down in public.
Adding to David Swindle’s insightful observations, I witnessed the verbal sparring in person in the lobby of Washington, D.C.’s Marriott [...]

The Fate of Roger Ebert’s Legacy


“I’m so relieved to be an elite” –tweet from Roger Ebert
Most public figures have done or said something they wish they could take back. When it comes to public intellectuals and film critics specifically, they generally pride themselves on their ability to analyze what they see. Therefore, their responses to culture should be very measured [...]

A Post About Comments: Thanks to Ron Paul Fans, I Have An Answer for Swindle and Rushkoff


Last month, Editor David Swindle introduced NRB guests to the sagacious Douglas Rushkoff and his latest work, Digital Nation. Joining the author in his musings about the mental dribble and dung that accounts for much of what is consumed by the “Digital Nation,” Swindle posed the question:
“Is the Internet Destroying Our Lives or Enriching Them?”
Before [...]

Enjoying the Howard Zinn Blowback


Apparently the comment sections were not enough to contain the neo-communist Left’s rage that David Horowitz and NRB would dare to tell the truth about the disgusting positions Howard Zinn dedicated his life to promoting.
Two readers (so far) contacted NRB to express their disgust. Their names will be changed to protect both the ignorant and [...]

The Internet and Us: Who’s in Charge Anyway?


Earlier today, our very own David Swindle alerted me to this documentary Douglas Rushkoff directed for PBS’s “Frontline.” The subject: how the Internet is changing us.
We used to do one thing at a time, drink a cup of coffee with our friends in our favorite bar and read a book at night. These days, we’re [...]

Point/CounterPoint: Should We Be Concerned About Sarah Palin’s Endorsement of Rand Paul?


From Louisville Mojo:
As Republican US Senate candidate Dr. Rand Paul approaches his biggest campaign event yet—a Saturday rally at the Fairgrounds that will feature Paul onstage with his dad, former Presidential candidate and US Congressman Dr. Ron Paul—the big news is an upcoming endorsement from 2008 Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
David Adams, Paul’s campaign manager, [...]

Bernie Goldberg Thinks I’m a “Kool Aid Drinker” Since I Was Unimpressed by His Toothless Criticisms of the “Hard Right” on O’Reilly


Am I a Kool Aid drinker? Well, this morning I’m actually a coffee drinker. The Kool Aid pitcher in the Swindle-Bey household fridge is just about empty right now.
I bring it up because apparently Fox News commentator Bernie Goldberg seems to think he knows what I’m drinking these days.
Last night I did a few live-blogging [...]

A Wicked Man? No, a Fool with Wicked Ideas


I’ve been uncomfortable with one characterization in my blog on Howard Zinn, and have decided I want to correct and will ask our editor David Swindle to do so in the original text. This brief blog is by way of explanation. I’m uncomfortable with calling Zinn a “wicked man” and thereby putting him in the [...]

Ebert Gives Limbaugh Health Scare Two Thumbs Up


When I first read that Rush Limbaugh was in the hospital, I did a quick look at “tweets” with his name as keywords. What I found was a disgusting collection of death wishes. Of course, anytime a major figure might be staring death in the face there will always be a soulless group who wish [...]
