Noonan Sees It: Obama Past Caring. Happy Independence Day!

burning bush mosaic

Peggy Noonan has written an excellent, some might say worrisome piece re Barack Obama's historically rather perverse presidency. You'll want to read it.I have for a while, now, wondered if the president's disengaged "check-out", and the "so, sue me" smugness -- the absolute lack of concern for anything, including his own legacy or the "future of the party" -- has less to do with a conceit that he possesses the ethereal, above-merely-human-detachment of a godling, and more to do with an … [Read more...]

Hillary, Stop Being Coy! Fight Sexism; It’s YOUR TIME!

Mother Jones Martinez

While traveling yesterday I had a chance to catch up on my reading and discovered that Hillary Clinton is "thinking about" running for President.We love her when she is coy, don't we? I can't wait to see her new presidential posters. Remember this one, from 2008?2008 was a big year for Democrat candidates drawn with just a hint of totalitarian flavor. Hillary's rising sun was reminiscent of Chairman Mao, Obama's posters often ran more toward soviet propaganda.That was then, and … [Read more...]

A Sidelined Sharyl Attkisson Leaves CBS News – UPDATED

attkisson

It's not really a surprise. Back when CBS News confirmed that the reporter's computer had been hacked, one sensed a tension when reading between the lines. Sharyl Attkisson had this habit of putting aside dictation in order to do actual investigative reporting -- a tendency that got her labeled (this is rich) "biased."Now, after over twenty years at what used to be the most respected network news division in mainstream media, Attkisson is gone: CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl … [Read more...]

Now that one-or-two members of the mainstream press are bothering to notice the FCC preparing to question their editorial processes, Ed Morrissey is helping us all get a better take on what it will look like, with this analysis at Hot Air:It’s difficult to determine any other reason for the FCC to take an interest in editorial decisions unless it wants to intervene in that process. It’s not all that outrageous to believe that the only reason a federal agency wants to conduct a study of an are … [Read more...]

Over FCC Plans, MSM Finally a Bit Curious re Obama Admin – UPDATED

Image courtesy of shutterstock.com

It's only taken seven years, but a member of the mainstream media is finally asking "what are they thinking?"That would be the formerly "respectable" Howard Kurtz, the Columbia J-school grad who wrote for the Washington Post and worked for CNN and the Daily Beast, before he fell from grace and landed at Fox News, where he writes: What on earth is the FCC thinking?The last thing we need is the government mucking around with news content.The title of this Big Brother-ish effort by the … [Read more...]

Surprise! GOP Fights FCC on Behalf of MSM Freedoms – UPDATED

pravda truth

It's true: if I only got my news from the Mainstream Media, and did not stop in at Instapundit's place every single day, I'd never know what was going on. My day is just too busy to read everything, even though I subscribe to many news sites. Glenn Reynold's editorial eye and pithy -- often hilarious -- commentary are invaluable to me.Take this story, for instance. I had no idea that the Obama Administration was going all "Let's Create Pravda" on news outlets. Somehow, the major networks … [Read more...]

Christie and Bridgegate; He Has the Wrong Pass

ezpassD

The "Bridge-gate" story currently haunting Chris Christie is not funny. Bridge tie-ups, aside from being inconvenient and schedule-mauling, are dangerous and sometimes life-threatening. It is possible that one elderly woman died because of the traffic snarls that apparently originated with administration staffers. It is absolutely fair and appropriate that the mainstream press inquire and investigate into what NJ Governor Christie know, and when he knew it, re the whole affair.If Christie … [Read more...]
