Skip to comments.Audit Notes: DíSouza and Forbes Edition (We've hit a nerve!! FReep mention)
Posted on 09/13/2010 5:34:23 PM PDT by milwguy
But because it was in Forbes, an MSM publication, this piece of garbage will be seized on and pointed to as fact for years to come by cynical folks who know better, like Newt Gingrich, and by those who dont, like Free Republic commenters or your relatives (you know the ones) who pass on those slap-me-stupid email forwards.
(Excerpt) Read more at cjr.org ...
'Piece of Garbage' and insinuating we at Free Republic 'don't know better', and who have been distributing D'Souza's article far and wide. ABC, CNN, Politico, Morning Joe, etc have all come out today to protect their messiah. The 'sheeple' be damned, those of us in flyover country are just dumb, bitter clingers. Come Nov. 2, I pray those of us in flyover country send these ivory tower libs a loud and clear message.
You could pick 5 random freepers to debate the entire Columbia Journalism school on politics past or present, and it wouldn’t even be a contest.
‘This will happen no matter how much we (left, right, and center) criticize it, debunk it, and generally obliterate it with facts and reality.’
I forgot to post the last line, which is what really got me. The White House using the same Alinsky tactics they used in the birther crisis to discredit anyone who questions them. The sycophants (left, center, and right) in the MSM are the useful idiots the White House relies on to protect the usurper in chief
The article is totally insighful and incisive (as well as true). Brilliant! It is a “tar baby” they will never get unstuck from. That’s why they hate it so much.
I haven’t read the article yet, but man, that clip you posted could be a dictionary-entry example of a “snit”!
Someone should post the article again.
NICE work milwguy! *BUMP* !!!!
Some folks over there on the left seem to be a bit ummmm uncomfortable with Mr. D’Souza’a piece.
I read a number of the comments on the piece. It would appear the WH press corps was chiming in to defend the POTUS.
D’Souza nailed 0bama.
So read the article.
I'm trying to think of what kind of person would write and send such a post.
I'd let you know, but don't wanna get banned.
Since the putz at the Columbia Journalism Review gave us a shout out, I thought it only fair to return the favor and expose my fellow FReepers to what passes for ‘Journalism Review’ at Columbia. The fact the author is so pissed off is a sign it touched a nerve. The fact Morning Joe led with it in their second hour and never mentioned D’Souza wrote the article while they trashed Newt for being what they are now calling this a new form of ‘birtherism’.
Had to invest in a Popstir stovetop popcorn popper! Much better than microwave or hot air. What volume!
It’s become a staple food in our household; we have prime ringside seats for watching liberalism implode.
Plus, popcorn’s cheap.
This will happen no matter how much we (left, right, and center) criticize it, debunk it, and generally obliterate it with facts and reality.
It's like they're trying to talk over any opposition by TELLING people what their opinion should be--pre-digesting the article for them.
How else to explain Obummer’s first act as president was to return a bust of Churchill that Britain had loaned the White House. . . not to mention a string of fumblings with the UK?
jour·nal·ism /ˈdʒɜrnlˌɪzəm/ Show Spelled[jur-nl-iz-uhm] noun
1. the profession or practice of reporting about, photographing, or editing news stories for one of the mass media
2. newspapers and magazines collectively; the press
3. the material published in a newspaper, magazine, etc: this is badly written journalism
4. news reports presented factually without analysis
Amen to that.
‘facts and reality’ to left wingers are opinions to most of the rest of us. These guys are getting more hysterical by the moment which means we are making em sweat at the White House. There are not enough sycophants in the entire media universe to keep the people from thinking on their own. The only thing we need to do is get the stories out. Forbes is taking a brave stand by putting D’Souza’s article as their COVER story in the Sept 27th issue. Once the hard copy hits the stands, I am buying a copy in hopes of seeing D’Souza one day so he can autograph it for me.
D’Souza could wipe the floor with this guy...thanks for spreading the word milwguy!
Good roughage too.
More like a string of contemptuous (and contemptible) gestures.
I read that when it came out last year, amazing that it took the rightwing media (D’Souza) so long to come to their own solution.
American Thinker is a national treasure.
I’m going to actually buy the paper edition. We should reward this type of article.
I’m a regular guy!
If you ever saw a hunting beagle in action, but did not know the dog was in the hunt, you would swear that the dog is simultaneously bizarre and possessed. Cutting and braying and dodging in arbritrary directions. You have to know what he is doing- chasing the rabbit.
D’Souza has apparently found Obama’s rabbit. It is anti-(neo)colonialism. Who knew?
I would love to sell tickets to that fight !
Did the Economist mention which of Obama’s policies are NOT explained by an “Anti-colonialist” mentality?
D’Souza NAILS IT!
The Regime Media goes ballistic.
Don't pick me - I cuss too much. :-)
BTW, I copied and saved the D’Souza article for future reference. Given the ways of the left, it could come in handy some day down the road.
“...cynical folks who know better, like Newt Gingrich, and by those who dont, like Free Republic commenters ...”
Nice slander, from a third rate hack at the hyper-corrupt Cradle of Regime Media Professional Propaganda: The Columbia Journalism Review.
Seriously, I am honored!
Wait till D’Souza’s book comes out-—it is going to climb to the top immediately. Oh, and how the howling will start then.
Columbia teaches 'groupthink' not journalism - so any five freepers would - in essence - be debating one person... Face it, if these guys were so smart, would their profession be dying?
ryan chittum is a nobody
We are on to you, JournoLists.
Like totally cool dude.
Is that like how they teach you to write at Journalism school.
And 4 of us could go out for a beer in the middle of it.
We can go to the local watering hole and watch the unlucky freeper destroy the scoundrels on TV
Put me on the "out for a beer" list also, please.
Sorry, but if this is Columbia J school work, it’s pathetically infantile. Reads more like high school. So much for the “Ivy League.”
Oddly enough, all the points D’Souza brings out in his article only make the hard-core left love Obama more. It seems that the author’s only real problem with the original article is that it was said outside of the CJR lounge area.
DSouza's theory is plausible for Obama but it does account for the support of Obama policies among others. There is no way he could shut down oil drilling without broad support from the bipartisan elite.
Did you read the linked Economist piece? Amazing slashing attack on author Dinesh. And to think; the Economist is what is considered a “conservative” mag in Europe...Eurotrash
I did not read the D’Sousa article, but, I am going to take exception to it. I don’t think you can attribute a logical explanation to someone who is just incompetent, lazy, arrogant, narcissistic and evil. If any logical sense can be applied, it is no more than the evil Hitler brought to the Nazis or Stalin to the Soviets.
I just read the article. I like this guy D’Souza. I will have to familiarize myself with his body of work. He’s so logical and straightforward. Great analysis of the Kenyan Pretender and HOW HE THINKS.
“Obama’s foreign policy is no less strange. He supports a $100 million mosque scheduled to be built near the site where terrorists in the name of Islam brought down the World Trade Center. Obama’s rationale, that “our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable,” seems utterly irrelevant to the issue of why the proposed Cordoba House should be constructed at Ground Zero.”
