    In a strongly worded editorial on Thursday, The Des Moines Register called on the Iowa Democratic Party to move quickly to prove that Monday's results are correct. The piece titled "Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party," starts out: "Once again the world is laughing at Iowa." It gets sharper from there.

    The Des Moines Register says Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has denied press credentials to its reporters after the newspaper published an editorial calling on the billionaire businessman to end his campaign. The Register says its reporters were denied credentials to a Trump campaign event in Oskaloosa, Iowa, on Saturday. The newspaper says Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told its reporters they were being excluded because of the editorial. In the editorial, published Tuesday, the newspaper called Trump a “feckless blowhard” who is “unfit to hold office.” Register editor Amalie Nash emphasized Friday that the paper’s editorial board is independent...

    Trump told supporters: “I only like polls that treat me well.” DES MOINES, Iowa, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- As the Des Moines Register prepares to release its key poll in the Iowa primary, Donald Trump slammed the paper calling it "dishonest." The paper previously found itself on Trump's bad side after it published an editorial in July calling for the real estate mogul to end his presidential campaign. He responded by refusing press credentials to Register reporters at his events. Trump knocked the paper at an event Friday in Des Moines: "You have one of the most dishonest right here...

    Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press, but no immediate action is expected to come from the first call, sources familiar with the call told POLITICO. Another call is scheduled for this afternoon. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...

    Donald Kaul retired earlier this year. Now he has decided to return to writing occasional opinion columns for OtherWords.org. The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. brought out all his ugliness. In a column that appeared after the shooting with the headline "Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns," he proposed a new liberal agenda: repeal the Second Amendment, declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal, and well, make violent threats to Republican leaders and NRA members. The Des Moines Register published this junk on December 29.
  • Romney wins surprise endorsement from Iowa’s Des Moines Register

    Iowa’s Des Moines Register newspaper endorsed Mitt Romney on Saturday, marking the first time the paper has endorsed a Republican for president in 40 years. “Both President Barack Obama and Governor Romney are superbly qualified … [but] Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate,” the paper announced. An Iowa victory would give Romney seven electoral votes. Recent polls show a close race in the state.

    The Des Moines Register shocked many political observers Saturday by endorsing Mitt Romney for president. Clearly not accepting such a thing, Michael Tomasky, the Obama-loving correspondent for the Daily Beast, came out Sunday claiming the Register's endorsement "is little more than a practical joke": This Romney endorsement editorial, if you actually bother to read it, is little more than a practical joke. First of all, it has all the hallmarks of having been ordered by the publisher over the objections of the editorial board. Normally, a sentence like "the RegisterÂ’s editorial board, as it should, had a vigorous debate over...

    The Obama campaign has finally released the transcript of his endorsement interview with the Des Moines Register--and it is clear why they were reluctant to do so: the President says he has "absolutely" no regrets about ignoring the economy during the first two years of his term, when Democrats controlled Congress. Here is the key part of the exchange: Q: Yes, that begs a question from us, Mr. President. Some say you had a super majority in your first two years and had this incredible opportunity, but because of what you were talking about, as you were running, you had...

    Is it safe? Is it safe? No, that wasn't Laurence Olivier as a Nazi dentist drilling holes into Dustin Hoffman's teeth in Marathon Man as he kept repeating that question. In this case it was the Des Moines Register wondering if it was "safe" to mention that a former Obama campaign staffer, Zachary Edwards (see mug shot), who was arrested on Friday for attempted identity theft of the Iowa Republican Secretary of State, Matt Schultz, was a prominent member of a well known Democrat campaign consulting firm, LINK Strategies. On Friday, the day the Des Moines Register first briefly reported...

  • Sarcasm From McCain to Iowa Paper

    For another candidate, it might have been characterized as a “passionate defense.” But for Senator John McCain, who has long battled accusations that he has a short temper, an interview today with The Des Moines Register could be more damaging. Some of Mr. McCain’s responses to questions about issues that have been prominent in the press for the past few weeks came across as sarcastic – sometimes testy. Furthermore, the Iowa newspaper put his interview with the editorial board online, leaving him vulnerable to unflattering mash-ups. “Really?” he responded to a question about possible concern from voters about Gov. Sarah...

    David Yepsen has a horrifically bad column in the Sunday Des Moines Register. In it, he distills each candidate down to the usual cliches of the leftist/"centrist" newspaper agenda: Mike Huckabee The former Arkansas governor and Baptist minister has soared in the GOP race following his second-place finish in the Iowa Republican straw poll in August. He has rallied party social and religious conservatives as well as supporters of a big national sales tax to replace the income tax. He's a witty speaker and an affable politician whose criticisms of the nation's economic policies sound a lot like the populist...

    Those who watched the Republican presidential "debate" in Iowa Wednesday now understand why The Des Moines Register is such a lousy newspaper. "That was not just the worst debate of 2007, that was the worst debate in Western history, and that includes the ancient Greeks," said columnist Charles Krauthammer. "There is no record in any major European record of a debate this transcendingly and crushingly dull." Mr. Krauthammer arguably wasn't engaging in hyperbole. Imagine a boxing match in which the boxers aren't allowed to lay a glove on each other, and you have an idea of what this "debate" was...

"That ought to be who you elect president." Then, in an attempt to put his foot down on debate silliness, he refused to play along on the raise-your-hand-if line of questioning on global warming. "I’m not doing handshows today," Thompson said to applause. Not offered a full minute to respond, Thompson said, "Well, then I'm not going to answer it."...

Can anyone here reassure me that we'll be able to see firsthand whether Ambassador Keyes critically injures the Giuliani campaign with a single well-placed blow?

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - It's crunch time in the presidential race. Nine Republican and six Democratic candidates will meet this week in their final debates before the lead off Iowa caucuses, and lively exchanges are expected. The back-to-back debates -- Republicans on Wednesday, Democrats on Thursday -- come as both races in Iowa are toss-ups with just three weeks left before the voting begins. On the GOP side, Mike Huckabee, has vaulted to the front, overtaking longtime leader Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor. Among Democrats, Hillary Rodham Clinton is locked in a three way race in Iowa with...

    Justice Department investigating Harkin Why isn’t the Des Moines Register reporting it? Editorial by: Roger Wm. Hughes On Dec. 2, the Associated Press reported that Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) was under investigation for corruption connected to the Jack Abramoff scandal. However, The Des Moines Register has not printed a word about it. The Register failed to report for more than two weeks about the fact that Harkin finally admitted to breaking ethics laws by not reimbursing Jack Abramoff for the use of his skybox at the Washington D.C. MCI Center. As it turned out, a client of Abramoff's --...
