    Omerta - A rule or code that prohibits speaking or divulging information about certain activities, especially the activities of a criminal organization. That old mafia term certainly applies to the general media blackout of all things that could possibly affect the public aura of Obama, The One, Hisself. I haven’t bothered to determine when the House of Representatives last announced the formation of a special committee to investigate the executive branch, but it is without question a newsworthy event, unless one is part of the outer ring of Obama’s defense, part of the hometown political cabal that will defend him...

    Some True Believer, a rat congressman named Doyle, was just on C-Span. Incredibly, I got through on the first try. My question to him was going to be: "Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously said the nation would have to wait until congress voted for Obamacare before we'd find out what was in it. Congressman, do you think it is proper in a representative republic for congressmen to vote for legislation they haven't read?" Halfway through a democrat caller's diatribe, my line went dead.

    The New York Times ^ | 10/6/2013 | Brian Setzer
    Given the meager approval ratings the public has consistently given Congress, it might seem surprising that anyone watches the unblinking live shots of the Senate and House on television. But government crises apparently have a way of ratcheting up interest in Washington procedural drama. When Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, started a marathon speech to protest President Obama’s health care law on Sept. 24, the average daily rating for C-Span2, the cable channel devoted to Senate proceedings, increased more than fivefold from the day before, according to data provided to The New York Times by Rentrak. As Mr. Cruz...

    Roughly 100 students, alumni and government officials gathered in Linsly-Chittenden Hall Friday to commemorate the 60th anniversary of “Witness,” an anti-communist manifesto written by conservative columnist Whittaker Chambers. The event, hosted by the William F. Buckley Program, aimed to examine “Witness” from both historical and present-day perspectives through three panels and a dinner with Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels. Panelists such as John Gaddis, a history professor, and Elliott Abrams, former assistant secretary of state for human rights and humanitarian affairs, discussed the book’s controversial history in sparking the beginning of the conservative movement. Daniels said he agreed with the book’s...

    If there is such a thing as a "tipping point" for proposals in the public policy arena, opening the "fiscal cliff" talks to C-SPAN cameras may have passed it. Two days after the election, I wrote in this space that putting the cameras in the room with President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner was the only way for the public to know who is serious and who is still playing politics. Shining the light would also be more likely to force a genuine compromise. That column got a tepid response. So I fired off another missive repeating the suggestion...

Mortgenson is finally interviewed by Brian Lamb on this week's C-Span Q&A, and gets to tell a bit of the story of how government mismanagement and outright corruption in the early 90's set the stage for the wrecked economy in the late 00's. Lamb, for some reason, tries his best to turn a lot of the blame to Republicans, and Morgenson does the obligatory "both sides of the aisle" routine, but the names you'll hear...

    In February of 2008, NewsBusters first highlighted MSNBC’s Chris Matthews oozing “I felt this thrill going up my leg” while listening to a speech by Barack Obama. Conservatives reminding him of it has certainly annoyed Chris Matthews ever since, so much so that he lashed out at C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, sinking to including the non-profit cable network’s senior executive producer as amongst the “jackasses” who dare to ask him about his infamous Obamagasm moment. The confirmation of Matthews’ incredibly thin skin came Tuesday at a panel session during the National Cable and Telecommunications Association’s convention in Boston. “I hope you...

    We hear stories often about the media crying because access is denied. In the courtroom, in the back room, in the smoke-filled room. If the media is banned, it will complain, and most often it is justified. What about when the media itself denies access to one of its own? The annual White House Corespondents Dinner is coming up in April, and the media has banned C-SPAN from broadcasting the event. No reason given, just C-SPAN cannot do what it has done in the past by providing full video of the event. Some journalists have complained about the lack of...

    Ah, 1995. Bill Clinton was president, Newt Gingrich was the House's feisty new speaker, and Chris Farley was still alive. At this April 5 meeting of the House Republican Conference, John Boehner introduced Gingrich, only to have Farley appear from the wings and present a last-minute agenda to round out the new Republican Congress's first 100 days in power. Saturday Night Live currently has Bobby Moynihan playing Gingrich in its debate spoofs, but there's something about Farley that oddly befits the former speaker. Gingrich fancies himself such a serious intellectual that there's almost no way to parody his persona, only...

Georgia’s two Republican candidates for president, friends who have watched each other’s back during much of the early campaign, will go toe to toe Saturday evening in a two-man debate in the backyard of a third contender, Texas Gov.
