    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 10-22-2014 | MOTUS
    Boy, it’s getting interesting out there. Take the Republicans’ War on Women (WOW) for example; it’s probably the Stockholm Syndrome, butt apparently women are beginning to identify with their oppressors:Why? Well, I’ll let Tina Brown (yes, that Tina Brown) explain why women feel “unsafe” with Obama: “Economically, they’re feeling unsafe. With regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe. They feel unsafe about Ebola. What they’re feeling unsafe about is the government response to different crises.” “I said, handle it!” “And I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, who’s too...
  • Tina Brown Treats Republicans Like Dogs: 'They Had Their Rabies Shots'

    Tart-tongued Tina Brown is at it again. On today's Morning Joe, seeking to explain why Republicans are doing surprisingly well with women voters this year, Brown said: "they had their rabies shots." Brown was responding to a Politico article reporting that President Obama is under water with women voters, and that this is spilling over into Senate races. In Colorado, for example, a poll shows Republican Cory Gardner leading Dem Mark Udall by nine points among women. And even Alison Lundergan Grimes [who may or may not have voted for Barack Obama], only leads among women by two. Brown's ugly...

    Monica Lewinsky’s ‘Vanity Fair’ article reluctantly plunges us straight back into the frothing world of ‘90s gossip. It may be painful but it answers so many questions about today’s media. The Monica Lewinsky confessional in Vanity Fair brings back a torrent of unfond memories of the appalling cast of tabloid gargoyles who drove the scandal. Remember them? Treacherous thatched-roof-haired drag-queen Linda Tripp, with those dress-for-success shoulder pads? Cackling, fact-lacking hack Lucianne Goldberg, mealy-mouthed Pharisee Kenneth Starr—the whole buzzing swarm of legal, congressional and gossip industry flesh flies, feasting on the entrails. And, of course, hitting “send” on each new...

    rom the living room of Barry Diller’s Manhattan apartment in the Carlyle Hotel, it is possible, on a clear day, to see the Midtown skyline, where the Condé Nast building rises like a ziggurat from the Gilded Age of magazine journalism. The view was an appropriate one for a man who in the autumn of 2010 was about to pour millions of dollars into the dead tree business. Diller runs IAC, a portfolio of Internet companies that includes Match.com, OkCupid and Vimeo.

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 3, 2014 | Andrew Stiles
    Liberals don’t like Ted Cruz. Many hate him. But why? Is it his conservative politics? That might have something do with it. The most plausible explanation is that liberals fear any politician who dares to be non-white, non-conformist, and non-complacent, and who challenges their 1940s Rooseveltian worldview. Whenever someone like Ted Cruz comes along, liberals cling to their outdated values, and immediately set out to neutralize this threat via a process known as “othering.” According to Yahoo! Answers: Othering is a way of defining and securing one’s own positive identity through the stigmatization of an “other.” Whatever the markers of...

When Tina Brown surveys the wreckage, the best—the best!—thing she sees, the thing she believes will be Barack Obama's shining legacy, is his handling of Iran and Syria, which she declares to be "smart," and of course, "nuanced." The Obamacare catastrophe? Not to worry. On today's Morning Joe, Brown assured us that those problems are "transient." No, look over here, at President Obama's masterful handling of foreign policy! Yes, years from now, when the minor hiccups of the Obamacare rollout will be long forgotten, people will still be marvelling at...

    When the Obama scandals pile up and Obama's image of integrity starts to enter the shredder, what do the most partisan reporters do to fend off the bad publicity? Try to portray the conservatives as "nutso" impeachers. At The Daily Beast, there was this headline Monday: "The Coming Attempt to Impeach Obama: The idea of impeaching Obama is industrial-strength insane. Republicans will probably try anyway, predicts Michael Tomasky." Tomasky portrays conservatives as "crazy" and Obama as the most clueless of presidents: he knew absolutely nothing about the Benghazi talking points? Then who elected him expecting a competent executive? Tomasky leads...

    A big publishing story of 2010 was when stereo equipment magnate Sidney Harman bought financially troubled Newsweek Magazine for $1 in the hopes of revitalizing the venerable old publication into the "thought leader" it once was. Now, since Mr. Harman's death, his family seems poised to bail on the old man's publishing charity case along with the left-leaning Daily Beast website. Since Sydney Harman bought Newsweek and took controlling interests in the Daily Beast, neither has become a profitable venture. This has caused the Harman family to re-think their position.

    Tina Brown is the very avatar of elite MSM opinion. So when the Daily Beast creator, late of the New Yorker and Vanity Fair, derides Sarah Palin as ignorant, it's safe to assume she's expressing a view harbored in many a liberal media breast. On today's Morning Joe, while admitting a grudging regard for her appeal, Brown claimed Palin's confidence is based on "total ignorance." Hosts Joe Scarborough [who last week took his own shot at Sarah's smarts] and Mika Brzezinski, if not precisely leaping to Palin's defense, did respond with some skepticism. View video here.

    What's interesting is the androgynous quality of the Obama appeal. There are no “jumpers” at his rallies like the girls who jumped up and down at Kennedy rallies in the sixties. It’s significant that the Obama girl who lipsynched about "having a crush on Obama" in the YouTube clip during the primaries was immediately assumed to be a viral Internet plant. Obama is too contained to have the kind of sex appeal we are used to in public men whose drive to seduce sometimes becomes literal when it comes to the opposite sex.

    <p>NEW YORK, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- "Much has been written about how boomer women have rallied to Hillary's cause (she won an impressive 67 percent of the white women voting in Ohio; they were 44 percent of the total). It's fashionable to write off this core element of her base as rabid paleofeminists fighting the tired old gender wars of the past. But Hillary's appeal to the boomer gals is wider and deeper than that," author Tina Brown writes in the current issue of Newsweek.</p>

    Look for NOW to be setting up picket lines outside Rush's Southern Command, protesting the way Limbaugh has demeaned mature women, writing them off as the "hot-flash cohort." What an outrageous slur! You know, these right-wing men just don't -- What? It wasn't Rush? It was that avatar of elite liberal thought Tina Brown, writing in Newsweek? Never mind. Here's how Brown put it in Hillary and the Invisible Women [emphasis added]:

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - British celebrity journalist Tina Brown is writing a book about Bill and Hillary Clinton, aiming to repeat the success of her best-selling biography of Princess Diana, her publisher Doubleday said. "The Clintons have a political and emotional partnership that continues to defy all expectations," Brown said in a statement by the publisher sent to Reuters on Friday. The book about the former president and his wife, who is running for president herself this year, is due to be published in 2010, the statement said. "As I did with 'The Diana Chronicles,' I plan to explore not...

    I'd be curious to see how Tina Brown describes someone she dislikes. Because after painting what seemed for all the world an unflattering portrait of Hillary Clinton, Brown proclaimed that she think's Hillary's great. Brown, the former editor of Vanity Fair, the New Yorker and Talk appeared on today's "Morning Joe" largely to discuss British royal doings as dished in her "Diana Chronicles"and otherwise.

    Singer-turned-crackhead Whitney Houston has allegedly engaged in lesbian sex escapades after getting high on crack-cocaine, according to a published report. Tina Brown, Whitney's sister-in-law who claimed recently that the star is addicted to drugs and living in filth, has made new claims describing how Whitney has had several raunchy lesbian sex affairs. The National Enquirer magazine quotes her as saying, "It's no secret. I've seen her with a woman a couple of times. They were walking around without shirts on when I came in the house." And if that's not interesting enough, Whitney's husband Bobby Brown reportedly knew about the...

    Last night, even while suffering the ravages of the virus that has overtaken my body, even though I am still here in the process of fighting these ravages, I was diligently preparing for this program. And I ran across what I think is the first written lap dance I have ever encountered. It is a Tina Brown column in the Washington Post. The biggest lap dance ever written is about Bill Clinton. I know lap dances used to be free in the Oval Office, but the guy's gotta get some money somewhere, he's giving away his food and booze,...

    Hillary biographer Ed Klein is returning fire against his Vanity Fair old boss, Tina Brown, who trashed the author and his book, "The Truth About Hillary" in her Washington Post column last week. Calling Klein "Ed Slime," Brown lamented the writer's alleged political metamorphosis: "Klein used to be a workmanlike scribe with glamour aspirations when he was flat-footing around in the Jackie O crypto-sphere," the literary doyenne recalled, dismayed that he's now become a "sniper in the Republican stage army." "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that misogyny is a sure boomerang," Brown warned. The one-time editor...

    CNBC Pulls Tina Brown Show By John M. Higgins -- Broadcasting & Cable, 5/6/2005 4:25:00 PM The subterranean ratings of Topic A with Tina Brown have finally prompted CNBC to pull the weekly interview show. A memo sent to CNBC employees late Friday said that Brown was leaving the show to work on a book on the legacy of Princess Diana. But Brown's ratings tell a more compelling story. Last Sunday, Topic A's prime time airing managed to draw just 4,000 souls in the key news demo, adults 25-54. Total viewership reached just 26,000. The weekly show debuted in February...
