  • The Boston Globe Claims the Solar Eclipse Is ‘Throwing Shade’ At Clinton Supporters

    The Boston Globe has managed to politicize the literal sun and moon. An article by reporter Matt Rocheleau published Tuesday asks if the upcoming solar eclipse is “throwing shade at Clinton supporters,” as he claims the “ideal viewing spots” for the upcoming eclipse happen to be in places that supported President Trump in the 2016 election: There are about 240 counties roughly along the central path of the eclipse, a 70-mile-wide trail extending across the country where people will be able to see a total eclipse, meaning the sun will appear completely obscured by the moon. And about 92 percent of those...
  • Hillary Clinton deserves Democratic nomination (BARF!)

    01/25/2016 1:08:47 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 33 replies
    America looks different in 2016 than it did the last time Hillary Clinton ran for president: The economy has come out of free fall, the military has left the quagmire of the Iraq war, barriers to equality have toppled, and universal access to health care has become a reality. Tumultuous as they’ve been, the Barack Obama years have proved transformative — and the priority for Democratic voters should be to protect, consolidate, and extend those gains.
  • Joining the military doesn’t make you a hero (Triple Bagger)

    Boston Globe ^ | 7 Dec 14 | Stephen Kinzer
    Who is a hero? In today’s America, it is someone who chooses a military career, puts on a uniform, and prepares for war. Placing soldiers and veterans on this kind of pedestal is a relatively new phenomenon. Past generations of Americans saw soldiers as ordinary human beings. They were like the rest of us: big and small, smart and dumb, capable of good and bad choices. Now we pretend they are demi-gods. One reason Americans have come to view soldiers as our only protectors is that we have accepted the idea that our country is under permanent threat from fanatics...
  • Rolling Stone’s UVA story a disaster for all ("Whatever the truth")

    Well, this is awful.The Web blew up Friday afternoon with the news that Rolling Stone magazine no longer stands behind last month’s horrific, explosive story of a gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity. A report in The Washington Post cast central elements of her story into serious doubt. Her friends and supporters now say they’re dubious, too.It’s disastrous for everybody involved. At this writing, the victim, Jackie, insists she was telling the truth about being raped by seven students. Whatever the truth, she must be in a world of pain right now, particularly if she tried to extricate...

    ....Two weeks ago, on April 10, in a manner reminiscent of King’s carefully controlled original unveiling of the fragment, the Harvard Divinity School issued a press release declaring that a “wide range of scientific testing indicates that a papyrus fragment containing the words ‘Jesus said to them my wife’ is an ancient document” and that “its contents may have been composed as early as the second to fourth centuries.” Harvard had given an advance viewing of the test results and an interview with King to reporters for just three newspapers—the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the Harvard student...

    BOSTON -- The New York Times Co. says it has agreed to sell The Boston Globe to the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox for $70 million, a massive drop from the record $1.1 billion it paid for it. Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy confirms the sale of the Globe and other media properties to businessman John Henry. The Times bought the Globe in 1993. Newspapers have faced difficulties in recent years as advertisers have moved more ads online. The Times announced in February it was putting the Globe up for sale. The company's CEO said at the time selling...

    The Boston Globe ran a massive 3,000 word lead article this morning trying to excuse away Elizabeth Warren's claim during her professional career to be minority and a woman of color based on supposed Native American ancestry.The story, which had the cooperation of the Warren campaign, comes just days before the first debate in Massachusetts' Senate race. Clearly, the Warren campaign is worried after even Native Americans who are Democrats criticized Warren at the DNC in Charlotte, and is attempting to put its story out there through a friendly source.The article is a masterpiece of distraction, weaving stories from...

    Really. Boston.com dug it up, and Mediaite spells it out: Romney took English 3, Elementary Algebra, Biology, French 1, and Art 3. He is credited in his art class for having a “real ability in painting,” but admitted that Romney is “not as industrious or as responsible as he might be.” The rest of the report card contains similar comments about Romney’s potential to do better in class, and under additional comments, the following is written about Romney’s overall performance. “Mitt is doing well. He is a more responsible citizen this year.” Wow. Just devastating. So while he was allegedly...

    You might think the British press holds a monopoly on media controversy this month, with the shuttering of a 168-year-old tabloid over a phone-hacking scandal. Still, at least one Yank media concern has won recent unwelcome notoriety--fittingly enough, for airing misleading video footage on the national holiday commemorating American independence from the British crown. CBS has been caught doctoring Fourth of July footage after Bostonians realized Thursday that the network's images of fireworks over various city landmarks were not only breathtaking, but also fake. An area research scientist appears to have been among the first to point out the discrepancy...

    Officer left names of lawyers off note By Matt Apuzzo Associated Press / July 26, 2010, Monday WASHINGTON — When the CIA sent word in 2005 to destroy scores of videos showing waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics, there was an unusual omission in the carefully worded memo: the names of two agency lawyers. [...] But when the CIA’s top clandestine officer, Jose Rodriguez, told a colleague at the agency’s secret prison in Thailand to destroy interrogation videos, he left the lawyers off the note.

    Jeanine Pirro provided a textbook demonstration of media bias against the Catholic Church during her stint as a substitute host for CNN Headline News's "The Joy Behar Show on March 29. Pirro never gave her guest a chance to defend the church and interrupted him six times within 1 minute, 59 seconds. Pirro is a former Westchester County, N.Y., district attorney and judge who now hosts the TV program, "Judge Jeanine Pirro." She also appears on network and cable news programs as a legal analyst. First, she stacked the deck. Pirro hosted a panel discussion about the recent allegations that...

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - When the request arrived in an e-mail last fall, Scott Fujita replied immediately and without reservation. A friend had asked him his opinion. He answered. That was how Fujita looked at it. The swiftness and certitude of Fujita’s reply stunned Dave Zirin, the friend who sent the e-mail. Zirin had not made a typical request, not for an NFL linebacker. He was looking for a professional athlete to lend his name to the National Equality March, a rally in Washington for gay rights.

    OF ALL the Big Lies told by the pooh-bahs of talk radio - that our biracial president hates white people, that global warming is a hoax, that a public health care plan to compete with private insurers equals socialism - the most desperate and deluded is this: that the so-called Fairness Doctrine would squash free speech. Nonsense. The Fairness Doctrine would not stop talk radio hosts from spewing the invective that has made them so fabulously wealthy. All it would do is subject their invective to a real-time reality check. If you don’t believe me, consult the historical evidence. The...

    A “Larger Truth” brought to you by the same nutroots liars who now insist that eight years of Bush = Hitler rhetoric was fringe stuff that shouldn’t be used to tar the entire left. I suppose if you can believe that quoting the Boston Globe amounts to “stalking,” you can believe that fears of socialized medicine are really all about resegregating buses. Funny thing about this: The whole thing happens so fast, and the perpetrator’s angle of view is so acute, that it looks like he never even saw what was on the poster. As McCaskill herself — to her...

    HEY, Sarah P., big congratulations on the memoir deal! I am so excited that you're joining our booky-wooky club! I know this is new for you, this book-writing thing, so do you mind some suggestions - just a few pointers? First, the story thing. You might not like that word "story," what with how it sounds like news story and might make you think about nasty interviews and so on, but I know you can get all creative about it. Important to remember: Your story is just what you want to tell - no more. You get to control every...

    Recently a 'Community activist' (AKA Pain in the A**) in the city of Boston named Sadiki Cambone, brought a set of pictures purporting to be of our service men raping Iraqi women to the Boston City Council. Much like John Kerry this Sadiki Cambone throws aroundhis service in the militaryto prove his alleged patriotism, all the while undermining our troops at every opportunity. The Boston Glob(e) published these pictures as being genuine without bothering to verify them.As it turns out the pictures actually come from a fetish porn site of men in camouflage having sex with porn actress.

    The Boston Globe today tried to distance itself from its admitted error in publishing pornographic photos fraudulently depicting the rape of Iraqi women by American GIs by blaming the city councilor who distributed the pictures at a press conference. In an editorial, the paper admitted for the first time the photos were "bogus" and "appeared" to be taken from a porn site, but in a separate article, the Globe's ombudsman claims she still has failed to discover the source of the photos and still has not confirmed or denied their veracity to readers. The photographs – uncovered by WorldNetDaily as...

    <p>THE RECENT actions of Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner were reckless and inflammatory. With no regard for truth or consequences, Turner unveiled graphic photographs at a Tuesday press conference, suggesting that the images portrayed the rape of Iraqi women by US soldiers. The display was an all-time low for a member of the City Council. Turner, now in his third term, used twisted logic to justify the photo array. While stopping short of claiming authenticity, Turner argued that "the American people have a right and responsibility to see the pictures" in light of recent revelations regarding abuse of Iraqi prisoners.</p>
