    ABC News reporter Terry Moran caused quite a commotion tonight on Twitter following after writing: "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a "jackass" for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential." Although it wasn't long before Moran removed it, with over a million followers, the tweet quickly bounced around Twitter through various users. Now, an ABC spokesperson explains to POLITICO what happened:
  • Olbermann WPITW: Talks Ratings, Rips LA Times (Listed show "Jackass" in place of "Countdown...)

    In Friday's WPITW, Keith Olbermann slammed the LA Times and writer Andrew Malcolm. We noted on Friday that the LA Times had issued a correction for its TV schedule which had listed the show "Jackass" in place of "Countdown." Pretty funny mistake. But not so hilarious -- for Olbermann at least -- was a one-line zinger "Top of the Ticket" blogger Malcolm had delivered in his summary of the little incident: But without this kind of correction, online too, a few thousand people might have tuned into MSNBC, the Obama administration's favorite cable channel, expecting to see a "Jackass" show,...

    LA Times Accidentally Lists 'Jackass' in Olbermann's Time Slot By Noel Sheppard Created 2009-08-21 10:27 The Los Angeles Times Calendar section on Thursday accidentally listed MTV's hit series "Jackass" as airing on MSNBC at 7 and 10PM. 7 and 10PM just so happen to be when "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" replays on the West Coast. Innocent mistake or Freudian slip? You decide as you read what Andrew Malcolm deliciously reported [1] Friday: Here is an actual correction from Page A4 of today's print edition: FOR THE RECORD: TV listings: The Prime-Time TV grid in Thursday's Calendar section mistakenly listed MTV's...

    The Canadian Press Updated: Mon. Jun. 29 2009 4:55 PM ET MONTREAL — A man is in critical condition in Montreal after falling off the roof of a moving SUV while performing what may have been a dangerous stunt known as car surfing. The man's head struck the pavement when he lost his balance. Police say they are attempting to identify the man, who is believed to be in his 20s. Car surfing is a daredevil-style of acrobatics during which passengers perform stunts while riding on top of a moving vehicle.

    Anyone just see Comrade Sheila Jackasson Lee on Fox Business News? This loony communist was stating how the well to do people in the United States need to give back to the dropouts and deadbeats because of all the freedoms this country gives those that have made it-basically that someone is owed a living. Forced collectivism and social engineering is what it's called. And it's never worked, ANYWHERE you liberal dope.
  • McCain: There's plenty of blame in AIG mess

    Despite contrary news reports, sources in the Obama administration insist they did not know until just last week that AIG was paying employees big bonuses. But it doesn't matter when they figured it out, said Arizona Senator John McCain. The Republican senator told the Fox News Channel the real screw-up is that the bonuses were allowed. "What's this, the fourth package that they've gotten of tens of billions of dollars and there was a provision, I'm told, that was an attempt to limit executive compensation and that was killed."

    By now, it's clear to everyone that we have inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the days of the Great Depression. Millions of jobs that Americans relied on just a year ago are gone; millions more of the nest eggs families worked so hard to build have vanished. People everywhere are worried about what tomorrow will bring. What Americans expect from Washington is action that matches the urgency they feel in their daily lives -- action that's swift, bold and wise enough for us to climb out of this crisis. Because each day we wait...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Barack Obama's cherished Blackberry slipped through his fingers Friday — but it was only a butterfingers moment. Obama, who has been reluctant to relinquish the device when he becomes president, dropped his Blackberry and its hard plastic case onto an airport tarmac as he emerged from his fortified vehicle. A Secret Service agent hustled to pick it up.

    Chalk up one possible win for Obama: He might be able to keep his BlackBerry after all. He's been resisting the advice of lawyers and others to give up the e-mail device upon taking office because he views it as his connection to the outside world. “I think we're going to be able to beat this back,” Obama said in a CNN interview of the pressure on him to give it up. “I think we're going to be able to hang onto one of these. Now, my working assumption, and this is not new, is that everything I write on...

    The Concord Monitor, Concord NH ^ | 2008-12-22 | Richard L. Fortin
    I have closely researched the constitution and bylaws of the Republican State Committee, and nowhere do I find a provision for designating registered Republicans as RINOs (Republicans in name only). So who is it that has the authority to make such a designation? The RINO designation is being bandied about by certain self-appointed Reagan Republicans as though they have the sole claim to be real Republicans. Was it not Ronald Reagan who popularized the phrase "the big tent," under which all Republicans to the left or right were welcome? Now we have this shrinking minority of so-called Reagan Republicans claiming...

    Americans For fair Taxation ^ | November 5, 2008 | Ken Hoagland
    There is much to say in these, the days after the election so I'll be brief as I share a few thoughts about the FairTax in the days ahead.FairTax.org is non-partisan, but I know the same cannot be said for many of our supporters. And, as such, I suspect yesterday's results came as a disappointment for some. For me, I look at things through many lenses--as a father, as a taxpayer, as an American, as National Communications Director for FairTax.org. For my FairTax.org role in particular, I see both challenges and incredible opportunities in the days ahead for our great...

    (SPRINGFIELD, MO.) - While Joe Biden talks about the “big issues” the country is facing - the worsening economic crisis, the need for energy independence, the disappearing pensions for American workers – it’s also worth noting that he has changed his tone on Sarah Palin to one that borders on condescension and mockery. Prior to the debate, Biden said he “respected” Palin and limited his comments to saying “I don’t know much about her” when he spoke publicly. In Green Bay last month, Biden said, “Sarah Palin has made a couple really good political speeches, and she makes a very...

    Barney Frank: Sarah Palin’s family life is fair game Tuesday, September 2, 2008 - Updated 5m ago WASHINGTON - Rep. Barney Frank is among the first Democrats to publicly say Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s family background, including the pregnancy of her unwed teenage daughter, should be fair game for campaign discussion. Republicans have stressed Palin’s conservative family values in announcing her selection as John McCain’s running mate. Frank says the disclosure about her daughter undercuts conservative claims that liberalism harms family life. Frank said Palin’s family is "in great turmoil." Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has said he considers family...

    Sean "Diddy" Combs is a multi-millionaire mogul who leads a life most can only dream of. So why is he pissed off at a rinky-dink website that sells cufflinks? We're told Diddy unleashed his big-time lawyers on a website called Cuff-Daddy.com, a small, family-owned cufflink seller. They fired off a letter telling them that the business' name was way too similar to his. Wait -- didn't he change his name to Diddy years ago? We hear the business gets its name from the owner of the company -- he's just a proud dad who sells cufflinks. The owner of the...

    Today’s Jackass of the Day Award is given to one very deserving jackass, indeed. Mr. Dick Cavett, you should be proud. You, sir, are the biggest jackass I think I have awarded this to. I don’t know. It’s such a hard call, and “jackassishness” is such a hard thing to measure. I think we’ll have a vote at the end of the year to elect our top five over all jackasses of the year. You are sure to be elected in that poll.
