Our Unfree Press – -UPDATED

I have written often and often about the dangers a nation faces when its press is not free:It’s so tiring, you almost don’t want to bother saying it. But we have to keep pointing it out, this mad descent of the press, and not grow weary or complacent. The only way to keep the press honest is to keep it accountable; that is our responsibility - yours and mine - a free press is an unencumbered, detached, open and honest press. And we must have it; we must insist that our press be free - una … [Read more...]

The stupidest girl in the world

Had a doctor's appointment so I missed this when it broke.I'm so glad I followed my gut and didn't buy into this story:How stupid and/or needy is this kid?Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter "B" in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.Ashley Todd, 20, of Texas, initially told police that she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and that the suspect became enraged and started … [Read more...]

Joe the Plumber conquers the press?

Big family doings through Sunday and part of Monday will have things quiet around here. Be well!Hey, do you think Obama and Ayers ran into each other, once in a while?Meanwhile, the press cannot be happy with the reality (and the anger) they have helped to create:From Iowahawk, who is pulling no punches:Politicians -- Sarah Palin, Bill Clinton, et al. -- obviously have to put up with some rude, nasty shit, but it's right there in the jobs description. Joe the Plumber is different. He … [Read more...]

Live-blogging the final Debate?

No, not me. I haven't the stamina to watch-and-blog because I get too anal about trying to get "everything." Not worth making myself nuts over. While you're waiting though, take a look at what the Ohio Secretary of State thinks is Democracy in Action, and get a load of Gay Patriot's state-by-state electoral fraud post. It ain't pretty.I see the press already has their talking points from Lord Obama.If you're looking for liveblogging, it's usually fun times for that over at Althouse's … [Read more...]

Yes, an obvious exaggeration, but this Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, needs to lose her job, yesterday.Almost as if she anticipated a court ruling a few hours later, Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner promised yesterday to give county elections workers access to a list of possibly problematic voter registrations.She'd been sitting on them, you see. Something like 200,000 of them.She's been told to provide by Friday; says can't do it until Monday at least. Gotta buy … [Read more...]

Vote fraud: The ACORN Breakdown

A few weeks ago, I emailed Jim at Gateway Pundit, who I recall having what seemed like hundreds of links to past ACORN bad-behavior, in terms of voter registration fraud, voter intimidation, vote supression (tire slashing on election day) and more, and I said, "you should put together one large post that has ALL of your ACORN links."He wrote back that it sounded like a good idea, and now he has an approximation of that up at Pajamas Media. I think he has even more links but had no more room … [Read more...]

ACORN, Media & the Angry Right

We're watching the press out-and-out lie in its reportage. We're watching YouTube censor what may negatively impact their man. Networks will sell 1/2 chunks of airtime to the Obama campaign, but will not run an ad by his critics. Ann Althouse notes that basic accurate transcription appears to be beyond the press' capability.No wonder the GOP rank-and-file are edgy, and angry. They know what "free speech" is. They've been gritting their teeth and respecting the first amendment for the last … [Read more...]
