  • Dems on FEC move to regulate internet campaigns, blogs, Drudge

    10/24/2014 5:13:16 PM PDT · by knak · 64 replies
    In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that the left wants to regulate conservative political sites and even news outlets like the Drudge Report. Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said. The powerplay followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote...

    The Hill ^ | September 23, 2014 | Tim Devaney
    Pharmaceutical companies say the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) new social media rules would have a "chilling" effect on the industry and leave consumers in the dark.The FDA in June released draft guidelines for how drug firms should use social networks like Facebook and Twitter. But pharmaceutical companies are concerned the FDA would hold them responsible for misinformation about their products posted online by third parties that the companies have little to no control over. They say the rules would discourage them from interacting on social networks, leaving consumers without useful information about their products."Given the extraordinary growth of the...

  • Dear Leader bolsters Russian Economy, recommends stocks

    06/27/2014 8:37:21 PM PDT · by wetphoenix · 5 replies
    Obama and Russia: the World Laughs Dear Leader (PBUH) has provided his contrarian investment dog whistles that have boosted the Russian economy. Specific stocks he targeted for "sanctions" have performed magnificently. White House sock puppet press secretary Jay Carney warned that it was not a good time to invest in the Russian stock market because Obama was planning to impose devastating economic sanctions that would send the market into a tailspin. What actually happened, the FT says, is that the Russian market rose from 1,250 on the RTS Exchange to 1,450 -- a gain of over 15%. In fact, if...

    Whether it's attached to a small business, a large corporation or maybe as a business in itself, a blog is a reflection of its owner. But you're not the only one blogging. There are an estimated 68,124,670 WordPress sites, and for good reason; an active blog is necessary for a successful SEO initiative. Add to the mix the sites that run LiveJournal, Blogger, TypePad or one of the other blogging platforms, and there are easily over 150 million blogs on the Internet; so how do you get yours to stand out from the pack? Many say that if you write...

    "We have no right to be boring or irrelevant,” Tucker Carlson says. “The Washington Post already has that covered.” Beneath the bluster, Carlson, the conservative pundit and former Crossfire co-host, has reason to brag: The Daily Caller, the news site he founded in 2010, has defied insider snickering to become a major news source for the right. “What I despise most about the legacy media isn’t just that they’re mindlessly liberal, though they are,” Carlson says, “but that they’re conventional and boring and unwilling to report unfashionable truths. That’s death.” The Caller will never be called boring. Carlson and his...

    Is there a more dishonest person in America than the vile lie peddler Karoli Kuns? Certainly, we cannot rule this out, considering that 66 million people voted to re-elect President Obama. One might write an entire book about the perverse mind of Karoli Kuns, whose attitude toward Republicans can best be understood by studying Pol Pot’s attitude toward opponents of the Khmer Rouge. There is no standard of decency Karoli Kuns recognizes as limiting the falsehoods she writes about anyone who doesn’t vote Democrat. For her, the destruction of Republicans is an end that justifies any means. Karoli Kuns wakes...

At first glance it would appear that way … Graham, a frequent target of this website’s criticism (due to his frequent awfulness), suggested this week that bloggers don’t deserve one of the most basic freedoms guaranteed to all Americans under the U.S. Bill of Rights. “Who is a journalist is a question we need to ask ourselves,” Graham said earlier this week. “Is any blogger out there saying anything – do they deserve First Amendment protection?...

    An explosive, feature-length documentary hitting an expanded roster of theaters nationwide on May 17 offers a captivating look at the larger-than-life personality of the late Andrew Breitbart – a controversial new media pioneer whom the left vilified and the right hailed as an American hero. Coming more than a year after the sudden and mysterious death of the crusading 43-year-old journalist, the film Hating Breitbart was initially screened in a few theaters in October shortly before the presidential election, but is expanding to 10 markets nationwide on Wednesday, along with the film’s simultaneous release on DVD and video-on-demand.

    (Associated Posers) – Richport, Maine – Although far outside of any danger zone from hurricane Sandy the incumbent mayor of Richport, Rodney Johnstone, is calling for elections to be post-poned for several weeks. “We will be getting heavy rains, possibly hail, for days. Roads will be flooded, trees will be down. People will not be able to reach polling locations”. The mayor is polling several points behind challenger Henry Morgan who is already confident of a victory. He says the mayor's call for delaying the election is “a ridiculous attempt to buy time”. Sandy, which is barely a hurricane won't...

Challenge opponents to cite factual sources, not feelings. Most local papers have an online edition, and most online editions have a blog or a forum. Pick one, get in, and dominate. The Truth is on your side. I'm having the time of my life. Remember, a lot more people view the forum than actually post. You are trying to sway the votes of the viewers.

If you’re a regular reader here, you’ll know I trot out “the Death Star obliterating Alderaan” analogy quite frequently — because the scene resonates with me in especially trying times, as it’s one of the earliest memories I have of seeing something up on a movie screen (having most likely seen it for the first time during one of...

    After years in the shadows of major media sites, blogs have come into their own. They now compete directly with the most well-funded online content sites, many of which are owned by the largest media companies. With the rise of several blogs, which are extremely successful both financially and editorially, the mainstream content corporations have tried to either flank or buy them. Many mainstream companies like The New York Times have started dozens of blogs of their own. Those who want evidence of the financial value of blogs need look no further than the buyout of The Huffington Post by...

    Some observers have noted that history doesn't always repeat itself, but that it does tend to rhyme. This was first alleged about geopolitics, but it appears to be true in many areas of life: the cycle of economic boom and bust, climactic cycles, from La Nina and El Nino to glaciations, and even management fads ("Empty what's full; fill what's empty; and scratch where it itches.") In particular, one can see such occurrences play out over time in the retail sector. When I was young, there were comparatively few chain stores, and most of those were regional, not national.

    The value of many of the most significant blogs have increased in the past year as the economy continued to improve and advertisers were willing to pay more to reach audiences online. Readership at most of the 25 blogs on the list has increased. Some of them have been around for five years or longer and their competition has either fallen by the wayside or been unable to gain significant market share.

While there's the occasional really detailed and good comment that does add to the thread, the good ones are far and few between. Heck, there’ve been...
