  • Ebola: Politics, Failure, And Opportunism

    The Ebola outbreak has been a disaster in politics, but a boom for capitalism. Weird how that works, but it is how many things work. President Obama’s handling of the Ebola outbreak has been an unmitigated disaster. At first, he dismissed it. Then, he panicked and started canceling campaign and fundraising events to engage in the “optics” of being in charge. It was too late. With his indifference toward beheadings and terrorists attacks that killed ambassadors in the past, the president altering his heretofore unalterable schedule signaled a panic message to the American people. If there’s nothing to worry about,...

    I cannot help but wonder what kind of headlines we'd be seeing if, say, Bush was President, rather than Obama. I like the question format - the headline is question, which allows it to be both biased and have the ability to deny it's biased (i.e., we're only asking a question...we never said you killed your wife, we just asked if you did kill your wife). A very effective technique the media uses against Republicans. Here are few that come to mind, maybe others have ideas too: "Ebola, is the President Doing Enough?" "Ebola Starts its Spread in the United...

    White House journalists are creating an alternative system for distributing their media “pool” reports in response to the Obama administration’s involvement in approving and disapproving certain content in official reports. A small group of reporters initiated an online forum this month in which they shared “pool” information among themselves, without White House involvement. The forum was set up by the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), which negotiates with the White House’s press staff over access for journalists. Pool reports — those summaries of the president’s public appearances that go to the news media at large and are used in countless...

    Though the Separation of Church and State is a relatively new concept, it has been declared settled law by the Media. That is much like the "settled science" of the extinct polar bears and the rapidly rising oceans flooding the coastal areas in the comfortably distant future of 2014. Or at least it seemed that way in 1994. Or at least it was reported that way in 1994, as fact, by the media. Disagreement was ridiculed. It isn't popular among certain conservatives, but the clause about "no laws respecting an establishment of religion" was actually well designed by the founders....

During his speech, the president said this about Fox and its audience: A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out their agenda. Hopefully also grounded in facts. There’s a reason fewer Republicans...

    In order to secure an interview with George Zimmerman, CNN reportedly offered to put up Zimmerman and his brother, Robert, at the Ritz-Carlton for three nights and pay for “everything” else they needed. At the end of their stay, CNN was given a $3,600 tab that included a large room service bill, spa treatments and “swag” from the gift shop, according to GQ.

Join me in telling the lamestream media that we wear your scorn with pride." Palin,...

No, present common...

TV Spy reports: Yesterday morning at around 8:25 a.m., News 12 The Bronx anchors Amy Yensi and Matt Pieper were caught in an open-mic moment. The pair were about to report on the need for school crossing guards in certain areas, when they made the following off-the-cuff comments on air.
