    I have a question for you. What happens when you decide to run with a story cooked up by DailyKos bloggers and then don't do any original reporting or, you know, fact-checking? I'll tell you who could answer it for you: Keith Olbermann. And by answer it, I mean totally not answer it since, when you call, they pretend nobody is around and dodge your questions. "Oh, Producer X isn't here after all, my bad. I must have been seeing a mirage earlier when I said he had stepped away from his desk."

During last year's presidential campaign, the media worked overtime to portray John and Cindy McCain as wealthy private jet junkies with more homes than they can remember, while showcasing Barack and Michelle Obama as just another middle class family with two working parents, one car and freshly paid off student loans. In 2008, a media frenzy whirled around Mrs. McCain's income and the $170,000 she paid household staff in 2006. On the other hand, Mrs. Obama was defined as an average mom who juggled...

Charges of political meddling erupted last week because of misunderstandings between investigators working on the case and senior state public safety officials, Cox said.

The CCSP, which coordinates the efforts of 13 different federal climate agencies, has released updated figures estimating combined ice loss from Antarctica and Greenland at 48 cubic miles per year, a figure the Washington Post dolefully reports as "accelerated" ice loss. But is it? In 2006, a widely-reported study estimated ice loss from Greenland alone to be over 57 cubic miles per year. Another the same year reported Antarctic ice loss of 36 cubic miles -- a combined annual total...

But in his reckless choice of running mate he has ensured that attempts to rebuild the Republican party in the event of defeat will be hampered by the soaring ambitions and dead weight of Sarah Palin. Palin is making it clear that she is not going to go away if McCain loses and it is clear she will try to run in 2012 for the nomination. That is a calamity for...

    The Corner @ National Review ^ | 10/5/08 | Stanley Kurtz
    A CNN article on Sarah Palin’s criticism of Barack Obama’s relationship to unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers actually cites National Review as one of the publications supposedly debunking Palin’s point. How CNN can cite National Review this way is a mystery to me. Maybe we’ll have to set up an NR "truth squad." I was very briefly on CNN immediately after the McCain campaign called for me to be given access to UIC library. A CNN reporter interviewed me, and almost every question was an attempt to challenge the significance of the Obama-Ayers link. I answered every query in detail. When...

    The Statement: Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin said Saturday, October 4, that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is "someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country." Get the facts! The Facts: In making the charge at a fund-raising event in Englewood, Colorado, and a rally in Carson, California, Palin was referring at least in part to William Ayers, a 1960s radical. In both appearances, Palin cited a front-page article in Saturday's New York Times detailing the working relationship between Obama and Ayers.SNIPCNN's review of...
  • The Big Lie: That Ayers Is Just Obama's Neighbor

    CNN made a special late night call to Paul Schneider at home and asked if the Ayers controversey is a legitimate issue. Schneider kept saying it was "nothing new" (not answering the question) and then quickly mentioned that Ayers does "live in Barack Obama's neighborhood". After that it was all about political charges becoming more severe closer to an election. They thanked Schneider for taking their call. I swear you could hear the fear in Schneider's voice. Of course he knew he wasn't answering the question, and that the controversy over Ayers has nothing to do with just living in...
  • Boston Globe Leads With a Lie — Debunked Palin Rape Kit Story Again

    I would urge someone close to members of the editorial board of the Boston Globe to let them know that the world is not flat, the moon is not made of green cheese, and Elvis is, indeed, dead. I say this because obviously the Boston Globe is way behind the times in discovering facts that debunk rumors and it’s clear they have no capacity to do any research. I mean, they must not be paying attention to reality because in today’s editorial, the Globe again raises the thoroughly debunked claim that Sarah Palin charged rape victims for their rape kits...
  • Apple Denies Steve Jobs Heart Attack Report: "It Is Not True" (CNN lied Stock died)

    "Citizen journalism" apparently just failed its first significant test. A CNN iReport poster reported this morning that Steve Jobs had been rushed to the ER after a severe heart attack. Fortunately, it appears the story was false. We contacted an Apple spokeswoman, who categorically denied it. CNN's iReport kept the report up until at least 10:15 AM, about 20 minutes after we published Apple's denial. The story has since been removed. CNN's iReport, Original Story Steve Jobs was rushed to the ER just a few hours ago after suffering a major heart attack. I have an insider who tells me...

    "I like being able to answer these tough questions without the filter, even, of the mainstream media kind of telling viewers what they've just heard."Gov. Sarah Palin at last night's vice presidential debate.Who can blame her? The mainstream media, liberal pop culture and weak-kneed Republicans have been ripping her to shreds over her interviews with ABC News' Charles Gibson and CBS News' Katie Couric--two heavily edited interviews--while ignoring her other interviews.CNN's Jonathan Mann kicks off the Palin-bashing this morning with an article entitled, Has Sarah Palin Become a Problem?.In the article Mann writes: By CNN's count, Biden has done nearly...

    I did a Google search and this link reaffirms my tought after seeing this last night. The split in a hand vote posed by O'Brien was nearly identical at quick glance. If anything, it may have favored one candidate or the other by no more than two hands. O'Brien said something like, "Well, it's certainly clear by the show of hands in this room that Joe Biden won tonight's debate."

    UPDATED CBS News and Knowledge Networks have conducted a nationally representative poll of 473 uncommitted voters to get their immediate reaction to tonight's vice presidential debate. After the first presidential debate, a similar survey showed that more uncommitted voters identified Barack Obama as the winner Final numbers from tonight's poll have yet to come in, but we do have some early results. (These numbers may change as more respondents complete the survey.) They suggest that once again more voters have responded favorably to the Democratic candidate. Forty-six percent of the uncommitted voters surveyed say Democrat Joe Biden won the debate,...

    The headline on the Boston Globe-Democrat’s editorial page, “Wasilla Made Rape Victims Pay,” says it all. All wrong. The Globe-Democrat yesterday asserted as fact that “during her tenure as mayor of Wasilla, the town started charging rape victims or their insurers for rape kits.” But the truth is that there is no record of a rape victim ever being charged for a rape kit by Wasilla; there’s no evidence Mayor Palin knew about the policy or took any action on it either way; and no record of a victim’s insurance company being charged by the town. How does an alleged...

    "Rush Limbaugh opened his show today by piling on top of House Republican leadership for claiming that a crucial number of their members voted against the bailout package because of a partisan speech that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave before the roll call. “C’mon guys. Can ya grow up?” he said. “There were a whole lot of reasons for House Republicans to vote against this thing yesterday.” [See update II below.]"
