    After weeks of widespread speculation about her future, Katie Couric is finally ready to go on the record. "I have decided to step down from the CBS Evening News," Couric tells PEOPLE exclusively.

    Last weekend, Tea Parties throughout the country held Tax Day rallies to protest bloated government budgets, ever increasing debt, and the ballooning entitlement state. Some among the Left were not content to let the Tea Party own Tax Day. In Arkansas, an anti-Tea Party rally dubbed "Make Them Pay" took place on the steps of the state capitol. Jim Lendall, a former state representative and 2010 Green Party Gubernatorial nominee, was applauded when he took the podium to call for the beheading of businessmen and conservatives. The French, inspired by our American Revolution, knew how to deal with the wealthy...

    Multibillionaire Donald Trump took the opportunity to promote his NBC-TV show on the NBC program, "Today," to revive the "birther" tale about President Barack Obama's birthplace. The former half-term governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, jumped in immediately to praise Trump's search for "birther truth." Here are her very own words on the subject: "I appreciate that the Donald wants to spend his resources in getting to the bottom of something that so interests him and many Americans ... He's not just throwing stones from the sidelines, he's digging in. He's paying for researchers to find out why President Obama would...
  • Birther Czar Joseph Farah: I've Been Talking To Donald Trump 'Quite A Bit'

    Talking Points Memo ^ | April 14, 2011 | Jillian Rayfield
    Looks like Donald Trump is taking his birtherism to the next level -- by soliciting advice from birther czar Joseph Farah. Kendra Marr of Politico reports that Farah says he and Trump talked every day this week, and he has been advising Trump on the basics of birtherism. "We've have been speaking quite a bit," Farah said. Since he started maybe-running for president, Trump has repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of President Obama's U.S. birth. Conspiracy theories about Obama's birth certificate have been repeatedly debunked, but that hasn't stopped Trump from speculating that the President's grandparents planted a birth announcement in...

    A week after calling former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a "dumb t***" vulgar insult for women, comedian Bill Maher went all the way and called Palin the c-word, adding, "There's just no other word for her."The Dallas Voice (The Premier Media Source for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual) Texas) reporting on Maher's appearance Sunday night at the Winnspear Opera House Sunday night, cheered Maher using the crude sexist slur against the 2008 Republican party vice presidential nominee as an act of "fearlessness":It’s that fearlessness — he acknowledged that some people would probably be uncomfortable with some of his remarks about...

    My job deprives me of the luxury of partisanship, as I have to reach out to both sides on the issue of free trade--a disastrous policy one can give impeccably liberal or conservative reasons to be against. So I can't offer any opinion of the Tea Party movement per se. But I can tell you that the way they're handling the issue of free trade reveals a lot about them. Over the last year, I've interacted with the Tea Party about the issue at both the local level and with some of their leadership. And I've observed a few things....

    Conservative activist James O'Keefe, whose deceptively edited hidden camera videos have made him a star on the right, is out with a new video targeting National Public Radio executive Ron Schiller - and by extension NPR itself. The video purports to show Schiller speaking to a pair of men posing as representatives of a phony Muslim group called seeking to give $5 million to NPR. The men tell Schiller they are affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist political movement. It shows Schiller stating that the Republican Party and the Tea Party is "fanatically involved in people's personal lives and...

    No Hair Dye For President Obama February 09, 2011 10:39 AM ABC New's Sunlen Miller reports: Mrs. Obama put an internet rumor to rest this morning, confirming that her husband does not dye his hair. “It's lighting,” she said in an interview with The Today Show, when she was showed two pictures of her husband just weeks apart, one showing her husband with much more gray. The president has often remarked about his gray hair, which he says has gotten worse in the two years since he’s been president. But internet rumors were rampant when at times the amount of...

    DEAR MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORTER WHO WASTED MY TIME ...February 9, 2011I've been finishing my next book and only able to catch bits and pieces of the news this month, but, based on what I've heard from the mainstream media, I'm pretty sure the conservative movement is now being led either by Jared Loughner or GOProud's president, Chris Barron. In honor of the gays who have come out of the closet as Republicans to be one of the 140 sponsors of CPAC 2011, I thought I'd run one of the interviews I gave before speaking to GOProud last September, which...
  • NBC Reporter Brands Lee Atwater 'The Notorious'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Another young product of Columbia J-school, another typical MSMer . . . Appearing on MSNBC's Daily Rundown today, NBC reporter Domenico Montanaro spoke of "the egregious Lee Atwater." What made the insult particularly . . . notorious is that it was entirely gratuitous, utterly unrelated to the subject at hand. Montanaro was reporting on the fact that Reince Priebus is the youngest RNC Chairman since Atwater. Montanaro first refers simply to "Lee Atwater," but then pauses and rephrases as "the notorious Lee Atwater." So Montanaro went out of his way to swipe at the late Atwater, who at the end...

    It's called "an admission against interest" in legal circles. Example: When the New York Times says something good about George W. Bush. It was George W. Bush's fault, the NYT just confessed, that the Stuxnet computer worm ended up destroying 984 Iranian uranium centrifuges over the last year or so. Bush got the Stuxnet program started in cooperation with Israel and other countries in the last years of his presidency. Of course the Times buries the truth half-way down its long story on Stuxnet computer worm, instantly saying that when Obama found out about it he made the program speed...

    In a mostly serious, spot on analysis of New York Times reporting on the Tucson shootings, P.J. O'Rourke wonders if the kind of liberalism promoted by the Times and others hasn't outlived its usefulness in our political debates. Writing in The Weekly Standard, O'Rourke excoriates several Times writers for their obvious biases before getting to the meat of his critique: A reaction so disproportionate and immaterial to a news story by a news organization is indicative of trouble in the body politic​-​trouble almost as severe as that which the Times claims the Giffords shooting indicates. I worry that in the...

    EXCERPT- Knowing very well most Americans objected to the "end of life" measure in the new health care legislation due to fears it could eventually give doctors a government financial incentive or even mandate to encourage severely ill patients to make life ending decisions too prematurely, Congressman Blumenauer thumbed his nose to the masses. It must be painfully obvious to Mr. Blumenauer that Americans did not want his end-of-life measure, so the Oregon Congressman decided to run around the will of the people by bureaucratic fiat. Instead, he and his fellow Democrats eventually omitted the measure from the bill only...

The president and his family are on a snorkeling trip in Haunama Bay State Park, and traveling press are under “explicit instructions that there will be no long lenses or other sneaky attempts to take pictures,” according to a pool report. Photos of a shirtless president on a Hawaii vacation after his win in the 2008 presidential election caused a stir two Christmases ago. Washingtonian magazine even ran a...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. – Alvin Greene, the unemployed Army veteran who suggested during his failed U.S. Senate bid that making action figures of himself would help create jobs, is running for office again. Greene paid the $165 filing fee on Christmas Eve to run in a special election for a South Carolina House seat made vacant by the death this month of Rep. Cathy Harvin. Cal Land, the chairman of the Clarendon County Democratic Party, said Greene entered the race five minutes after the filing period opened. A primary will be held Feb. 15 with the special election set for April...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Kennedys have held congressional seats, the presidency and the public's imagination for more than 60 years. That era ends when Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island vacates his U.S. House seat next month, leaving a City Council post in California as Camelot's sole remaining political holding.
