  • Yeah, I Wrote the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Memo

    I stand by every word of it. And its even worse today. Of the thousands of Clinton presidential records released to the public last week, one among them has received of the bulk of attention: a 332-page memo from 1995. The memo, which offers an in-depth analysis of the right-wing media, describes how conservative conspiracy theories about the Clintons passed from the fringes to the mainstream. (...) Lets go all the way back to the summer of 1995. At the time, my then colleague (and current business partner) Mark Fabiani and I were working at the White House as lawyers...

    Revival of right-wing conspiracy charges are all the rage in the age of Obama, but liberals are just playing the same old shell game. The real action is on the left, with lockstep collusion by the President with Soros-funded Media Matters. While the President sends his surrogates onto national network programs to decry Fox News, Media Matters is behind the scenes working its Fight Fox campaign. Media Matters' president, Eric Burns, sent out the Fight Fox campaign announcement to supporters on September 17 and explained why Fox had to be driven out of the national political

    I was interviewed by several journalists last week about Rick Santellis Rant my exact quote was it had a Faux feel to it. (I havent seen it in print yet) What was so odd about this was that Santelli is usually on the ball; we usually agree more often than we disagree. Hes been responsible for some of the best moments on Squawk Box. But his rant somehow felt wrong. After weve pissed through over $7 trillion dollars in Federal bailouts to banks, brokers, automakers, insurers, etc., this was a pittance, the least offensive of all the vast sums...

    Randi Rhodes is the Victim of a Violent Attack Randi Rhodes was mugged on Sunday night on 39th Street and Park Ave, nearby her Manhattan apartment, while she was walking her dog Simon. According to Air America Radio late night host Jon Elliott, Rhodes was beaten up pretty badly, losing several teeth and will probably be off the air for at least the rest of the week. At of late Monday night we have not able to locate any press accounts of the attack and nothing has been posted on the AAR website. Several liberal blogs, including the Randi Rhodes...

    In an interview from her Capitol office, Pelosi characterized Tuesday's vote as a referendum on the war, shrugged off President Bush's efforts to make her liberalism a national issue, described the current GOP leadership as a "freak show," and expressed confidence about her party's prospects to pick up the 15 seats it needs for a majority. "We're going to take back the country for the American people -- Democrats and Republicans alike -- because it has been held hostage by the radical right wing of the Republican Party," Pelosi said. "This is a freak show, and it has to come...

    THE heckler at Barbra Streisand's MSG concert Monday night may have been a right-wing plant who's taunted her before, her publicist says. "There's something a little weird about it," said Ken Sunshine, noting there was a similar-sounding shouter at the diva's Philadelphia show last week. At the Garden, the heckler taunted, "What is this, a fund-raiser?" when she made fun of President Bush. Meanwhile, Audience Extras, a firm that provides members with free tickets to undersold shows, was giving out ducats to Babs' show tonight. "They did a last-minute release of some scattered seats in the upper levels," said tour...

    Less than 72 hours before ABC's "The Path to 9/11" is scheduled to air, the network is suddenly under siege. On Tuesday, ABC was forced to concede that "The Path to 9/11" is "a dramatization, not a documentary." The film deceptively invents scenes to depict former President Bill Clinton's handling of the Al Qaeda threat. Now, ABC claims to be is editing those false sequences to satisfy critics so the show can go on -- even if it still remains a gross distortion of history. And as it does so, ABC advances the illusion that the deceptive nature of "The...

    Chances that Toga the baby jackass penguin will ever be found alive dimmed Friday, nearly a week after he was apparently stolen from a zoo in the south of England, prompting national publicity. Amazon World, the Isle of Wight theme park where Toga was last seen on Saturday, has upped its reward for the flightless bird's safe return to 10,000 pounds (14,500 euros, 17,300 dollars) thanks to an influx of donations. "We have had an incredible number of calls from the public," zoo official Dany Thearle told AFP, as pictures of the three-month-old penguin, which stands only 30 centimetres (12...

    AP ^ | 12/15/5
    It's wintertime and the king penguins at a zoo in northern Japan are putting on weight. But the keepers there have a solution: exercise. Authorities at Asahiyama Zoo are taking the penguins on 500-yard walks on the snowy grounds twice a day, said zoo spokesman Tetsuo Yamazaki. "Just like in humans ... the fat accumulates during the winter months, and the blood-sugar level rises," Yamazaki explained from the zoo, 570 miles northwest of Tokyo. The zoo's 15 king penguins aren't exactly obese. Penguin winter weight varies from 33 pounds to 40 pounds, said zoo official Kazunobu Maru. So far, only...

    The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate yesterday blamed "the right wing" and elements of the press "in service to it" for repeating Howard Dean's remarks about Republicans and inflating them out of proportion. "I think we all understand what's happening with you all," said Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin, in remarks echoing Hillary Rodham Clinton's blaming a "vast right-wing conspiracy" for her husband's legal-ethical woes. "The right wing has got the agenda moving. Fox [News Channel] and everybody's got the agenda. It's all about Howard Dean. You've bought into it," Mr. Durbin said.

    Mr. Rather said that the focus on questions over the veracity of the memos was a smoke screen perpetrated by right-wing allies of the Bush administration. "I think the public, even decent people who may be well-disposed toward President Bush, understand that powerful and extremely well-financed forces are concentrating on questions about the documents because they cant deny the fundamental truth of the story," he said.

    So. What is the most absolutely desperate move CBS could make in an attempt to defend its now widely-discredited memos? How about accusing the forensic document examiners that doubt the veracity of the memos of being agents of the Republican Party? Just heard from a very reliable source that CBS is looking into the political donations of document examiner Sandra Ramsey Lines, fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, who assessed the memos for CNN and for the Associated Press. Did some digging myself, and found in a database maintained by the Center for Public Integrity, a campaign finance...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - More than a thousand people turned out Tuesday night for the world premiere of "The Hunting of the President," a film claiming to expose "the 10-year campaign to destroy Bill Clinton." The 90-minute documentary re-creates interviews conducted for the best-selling book of the same name by Joe Conason and Gene Lyons. Rough versions have already played at four film festivals. The first public showing, at $50 a ticket with the proceeds going to a couple of Arkansas-based charities drew a large crowd to a ballroom at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, a...

He had mentioned how much he liked hillary's response to criticisms of what she said in Iraq (which personally I wasn't all that excited about - she is what she is) because she pinned it on a "Right wing apparatus" and responded just by saying "I am not going to lie to American troops" (nope - no subtle reference THERE!) Ok - so this was my response, which is followed by his. I know what my gut reaction to this was,...

Hillary Rodham Clinton, in Texas for a book signing and to raise money for her campaign war chest, said Friday that President Bush won her husband's old job by running a campaign that masked his true leanings. "We've made a hard right turn to pursue an extremist agenda that was certainly not advertised by the campaign President Bush ran," the former first lady said in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman before her book-signing. "There's very little compassion," she said of...

    Among the Bush hatersRich Lowry August 19, 2003In the 1990s, a few lunatics accused President Clinton of murder and other crimes, leading to the coinage of the phrase "Clinton-hating." Thereafter, anyone who said a discouraging word about Clinton's sex-and-lies scandal, his slipperiness with the truth or his poor performance was tarred as a "Clinton-hater" and considered somehow illegitimate. The charge of Clinton-hating, constantly retailed by the media, became one of the most useful tools of the president's defenders. It is curious, then, that the press, which lately was so sensitive to any "hatred" directed toward a sitting president, has shown...

A proliferating band of independent writers known as bloggers (short for web loggers) is pumping out personal takes on the news, and one of the most persistent themes of their websites has been that Howell Raines, executive editor of The New York Times, would have to resign or be sacked.

    When, five years ago, Hillary Clinton announced the existence of a "vast, right-wing conspiracy," conservatives responded with hoots of derision and laughter. The very idea was preposterous. Or was it? Recent developments suggest she may have been prescient. Once a week a couple of dozen leaders of conservative groups gather at the offices of Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform. Every few weeks the National Republican Congressional Committee convenes a group of senior Republican consultants and operatives, most of them veterans of many campaigns. Why else would these groups meet regularly unless it is to plot the nation's...

    In an updated critique of what Hillary Clinton once called the vast, right-wing conspiracy, Democrats are complaining bitterly about the power of a loose-knit network of conservative media voices. Outgoing Senate Majority leader Tom Daschle blasts radio host Rush Limbaugh and "Limbaugh wannabees" for what he considers a shrill and dangerous tone. Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois, one of a new group of senators trying to reposition the Democrats in the wake of the Nov. 5 elections, tells National Public Radio that his party is struggling to overcome "station after station" of "right-wing screamers." The complaints, which conservatives attribute to...
