Times Puts Pot Pies on Front Page, Pelosi On A20
FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/15/2009 6:10:18 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

The sitting Speaker of the House of Representatives has accused the CIA of lying to Congress. She is ensnared in a web of conflicting accounts. Her very hold on power could be under a cloud. Meh. Guess we can find some room on A20. But pot pies need to be heated to 165 degrees to be safe? Hold the presses: put it on the front page!

Such is the news judgment of the New York Times. The Morning Joe crowd had a field day with Gray Lady and Pelosi’s travails during the show’s opening half-hour today, Joe Scarborough having great fun pretending to assume that Pelosi’s pathetic presser would be on the Times’ front page one. Willie Geist eventually discovered the story on A20.

I need to cook pot pies before I eat them? Wow. That’s the kind of cutting edge info that makes the times indispensable.

“Times Puts Pot Pies on Front Page, Pelosi On A20”

At the very least, they could have put her story on page 10.....to at least give the image of being unbiased.

If I don't see her each day I miss her
'Cause it's so much fun to sit and hiss her
Believe me, I've got a case
On Nancy with the smiling face

Do you hear how bad she's lyin'?
She's not all that good a pro
When she speaks it's terrifyin'
She fibs when she says hello

Each charge she makes is quite a twister
Thank gawd she ain't got no twin sister
Time for resignation in disgrace
For Nancy with the smiling face

Leni

well, maybe they did that so you could take a spit-take of your pot pie when you see how buried Pelosi’s story is

It is impossible not to enjoy seeing Pelosi squirm, she is such a phony, nasty, hateful person who lies all the time.

But it is also very serious and discomfiting to think that this horrible woman is 3rd in line for the presidency and extremely powerful.

I wonder what Hillary is thinking this morning. Pelosi did not support her candidacy, if I recall correctly. Heh!

I see the Times has the story up on their website, as a related story and in FINE PRINT. The story link has been highlighted on the partial screen capture.

This is just another in the long list of Democrat foibles that conservative forums obsess about (rightfully so) which the DBM media basically ignores and 95% of the nation either doesn’t know or doesn’t care.

Unless someone can grab hold of this like a pit bull and refuse to let it go, by next week it will be gone. We need someone to emulate the ferocity of Newt when he took on Fort Worthless Jim Wright, didn’t let go, and brought him down.

Since they’re going to start selling it for $6.00 a pop, it doesn’t even make a good bird cage liner anymore.

If the NYTimes won’t seriously cover the Nancy Pelosi story, it will never make it to my local paper. It’s no wonder that so many people I talk to are clueless and still like this administration.

Start asking people that you know casually, and they probably don’t even know who Nancy Pelosi is. A lot of people don’t follow the news, and that’s why they like Obama.

The front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer has a picture in the center of the astronauts space walking, which takes up most of the area above the fold. To the left,the article is that Chrysler “ends ties to 11 local dealers” and the right-side article is “obama to alter,restart tribunals”. Only the headline for the Pelosi accusation makes it above the fold; the 4 paragraph beginning of the article is below the fold,the width of the astronaut picture (and continued on page A10). I was taught in high school journalism classes that items intended to grab the audience’s attention go above the fold so the placement of the headline and article increases the likelihood it will be skipped over by most folks. Oh, and the headline? “Pelosi: CIA mislead me”

The Abu Ghraib scandal was on the front page of the Old Grey ‘ore for a solid month in 2004 (an election year).

So, the Speaker of the House is third in the presidential line of succession, the current Speaker accuses the CIA of systematically lying to Congress, and the NY Times thinks Pot Pies is a more newsworthy item on Page 1.

The Times should be sued for journalistic fraud.

I really hate this president who poses shirtless in a magazine. This is appalling. This undignified schmuck is such as a$$. What an absolute jerk. This whole administration is really making me sick and distressing me. I can’t believe the times would run this on the front page.

Lets just make up a locker room nick name for him like you would at the gym such as; presidents pecs, or how about commander-in-beef?

You would think that someone on our side, would want to rise above the pack by hammering this and making a name for themselves.

Then again, perhaps they have been warned off.

Newt had an interview ( ABC News I think.).. and REALLY takes on Nancy and the whole question of what should be done to protect the nation,...calls for a national debate on what is legitimate in acquiring information from those who aim to harm America and Americans....:

CBS Radio got new talking points from the DNC overnight. Their major story is Karl Rove and the “Fired Attorneys” investigation...

You shouldn’t have given those poor birds the editorial page. I give my parrot the sports section of our local paper when he’s a good boy.

I can see Pelosi in her kitchen while her kids where young... Mommy mommy make me a sandwich......... the hag's reply.... you are a sandwich, as the kid turns into a sandwich.
Then she goes flying off on her broom as she cackles away.
On a serious note. It sure looks like the witch is not going to get away with her gross lies this time around.
