Eric Alterman, Moron


For those of you who haven’t heard of Eric Alterman of The Nation magazine (and unless you’re a shut-in with a crush on Michael Moore and a strange love of unicorns and lotion, why should you have?), he is a far-left columnist who makes it his mission to say silly things.  That is not unexpected, since [...]

Wait: ABC News had 400 employees…?


“The process of cutting up to 25% of the jobs at ABC News is all but complete,” reports MediaBistro.
