  • The Tide, The Virginian Pilot and Stuck On Stupid

    The Virginian Pilot (slogan: “Dear reader, we hate your f***ing guts”) helped sell Norfolk on the “Tide.” The Tide (slogan: “if we have not run into you yet, give us time, we will.”) is a light rail system that just captured the title of “by far the biggest loser per passenger in the country.” Determined not to let go of its record of supporting every money losing public project it can find, the Virginian Pilot (favorite prediction: Norfolk will be under water by next Tuesday because of Global Warming) is doubling down on stupid. Admitting that the Tide has captured...

    The religious bigots at the Virginian Pilot have run editorials, news stories and carefully selected letters to the editors to smear E.W. Jackson, a Black minister who won the Republican nomination for Lieutenant governor of Virginia. Why so much hatred for a Black man? The answer is simple religious bigotry combined with the political bęte noir of the Left: a Black conservative. Black conservatives are vilified as a matter of course because they represent the runaway slave to the slave masters of the Democrat Party. In the 21st Century they don’t send the dogs out after them anymore; instead they...

    The rambling incoherence of the people who write editorials for the Virginian Pilot has broken through the bounds of time and space to finally arrive in a completely new universe. A universe where the $430 million government subsidy to PBS is actually nothing, nada, zero. A universe where NOT SPENDING $430 million that we don’t have will have NO EFFECT on the federal deficit! Don’t believe me? Allow me to quote two lines from this editorial that is so mind-blowingly stupid that reading it will make destroy your brain cells: "Public broadcasting has nothing to do with the federal deficit....

    The Obama administration has done what many people would have thought impossible; it has united the Arab world and Israel … in despising us. Having made the editorial decision to support Obama at all cost the Virginian Pilot has relegated the destruction of America’s position in the Middle East to the back pages. It has made the editorial decision that the real news about the riots and murders engulfing the Arab world is a comment by Romney. Naked people are often a shocking, and repellent sight. Naked partisanship displayed by the Virginian Pilot is stomach churning. Using epithets like “vile”...

    The Virginian Pilot, my local paper has receives national attention recently. Its editor decided that a black mob attacking a pair of his reporters was not news. When the story finally surfaced, the Pilot’s editorial judgment was … questioned … exposed … revealed for the sorry mix of bad judgment mixed with political correctness for which the paper is notorious. As you may have heard, the Mid-Atlantic area has been hit by some pretty strong wind and thunderstorms recently which left millions without power and dozens dead. Meanwhile summer temperatures between 90 and 100 degrees are forcing people from their...

    There’s outrage in Norfolk, Va., today after a white couple was attacked by a group of 100 black teenagers, and the local newspaper did not report on the incident for two weeks, despite the victims being employees of the paper. Even today, the Virginian-Pilot did not cover the crime as news, but rather as an opinion piece by columnist Michelle Washington. “Wave after wave of young men surged forward to take turns punching and kicking their victim,” Washington wrote, describing the onslaught that began when Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami stopped at a red light while driving home from a...

    Tea Party envy was running rampant in today’s Virginian Pilot as editorial page editor Donny Luzatto tried to equate the Tea Party with the Occupy Wall Street movement and it’s bastard offspring. According to Donny, they are both saying there’s something wrong with “the system.” Wrong, big government breath. The Tea Party’s focus is on big government, big taxes, big regulation, and big national debt. The Tea Party is a middle-class uprising. It took its energy to change, and in many cases take over, the Republican Party. They entered politics and helped win elections. They are in the process of...

    I have been blogging about the hateful way the Virginian Pilot and it's editorial page editor Donald Luzatto has depicted conservatives. Richard Fernandez analyzes this phenomenon and explains why dehumanization of your opponent is primarily an occupation of the Left. Who makes monsters? Mostly the Left: because of its huge presence in the media and the arts, the Left has traditionally manufactured the most hate-objects. They’ve done it for so long that it has become almost a birthright. The photographer Zombie has documented dozens of calls from the left, from demonstrators to celebrities, for the assassination and murder of President...

    By now it’s an axiom that the Tea Party people are racists, bigots and homophobes. That they shout racial slurs, spit on blacks and call Barney Frank a fag. This is done in the old fashioned way, the same way that in times past black men were accused of raping white women and then strung up. All that was needed was an accusation, it was passed around in gossip, amplified via the press megaphone and … we have another lynching. We don’t lynch blacks any more; we go in for a more high tech lynching in this wired world. We...

    Donald Luzatto directs the Virginian Pilot’s editorial page. Today he flipped from bigotry to insanity. His op-ed rant entitled “Setting the stage for bloodshed” was a full throated cry for murder. Blaming the elevated partisan animosity on a mix of racism, paranoia, the economy and the “electronic media.” The latter, of course, means Fox News, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, the villains of the piece who he calls out by name. "Something horrible is coming. We know it. We can feel it.” So says Donny Luzatto. And he calls Beck paranoid? “The national shouting match has become so crazed, so...

    Should legislators be forced to attend Muslim prayers? The Virginian Pilot editors this morning came out with an editorial condemning 10 members of the Virginia legislature for avoiding a prayer by a Muslim cleric whose mosque was one that the 9/11 Jihadists highjackers attended. That seems to be a strange position to take for a member of the MSM that has in the past voiced opposition to prayer in public venues on the theory that a prayer said on public grounds is a slippery slope to the establishment of theocracy in America. The Virginian Pilot’s editorial board has always been...

    There is something reliable about things that are consistent. I have often said the something that is reliably wrong is as useful as something that is reliably right. Just as the public mania for stocks almost always signals a market top, the Virginian Pilot is a reliable guide. If you do the exact opposite of what they advocate in their opinion found in either their editorial (or “news”) pages the odds are heavily in your favor that you are doing the right thing. By endorsing Creigh Deeds by telling us that he will raise Virginian’s taxes I believe that the...

    The Virginian Pilot propaganda machine for ObamaCare sputtered into high gear, reminding me of one of those ObamaClunkers headed for the dealer to be replaced by a nice shiny Toyota. Under the guise of providing facts vs. fiction the half-assed editors apparently rewrote a press release from Team Obama using data gathered by WHO (The World Health Organization). Unfortunately, the remaining employees of the much-shrunken Virginian Pilot are not very bright, they are no longer believed and their evidence is simply belied by people’s experience. In fact, the editors, in an attempt to paint the worst possible picture of US...

    The incandescent stupidity of Virginian Pilot editor Donny Luzzatto has to be seen to be believed. In today’s paper, complaining about the fact that the US has not built any grand monuments, highway systems or gone back to the moon, he attributes this lack to …. (wait for it) money! Having spent the public’s money like drunken editors (sailors spend their own money) during the Bush years and quintupling down during the Obama years, I am persuaded that this pile of towering ignorance is willful. It can’t be an accident; otherwise Donny would be right – like a stopped clock...

    “Reason” illustrates the way the MSM – and my local paper, the Virginian Pilot – treats the subject of budget shortfalls on the part of state and local governments. I don’t attribute it to the fact that the spouses of people in the news business typically work for the government, which would be crass. No, I attribute it to the bias in the MSM to government as the answer … to any question. Workaday Media Bias and State Budget Crises, Example #1 shows the typical manner in which pretty much any newspaper views government spending. The only bit in the...

    When you find a beautiful woman who you hate, you can generally make someone believe she’s a slut. Go back to you high school days. Remember the prom queen dating the quarterback? Whether they remained chaste as Romeo and Juliet, you can be sure that rumors had them engaging in monkey sex. It’s called projection; and in High School, it’s engaged in by teen aged adolescents. Some people, like the Virginian Pilot’s editorial page editor- Donny Luzzatto - never grew beyond that stage. Neither did Dave Letterman … and most of the members of the mainstream media. It’s evident in...

    The Virginian Pilot today devoted much of its (dead tree) editorial pages to stoking hatred for Conservatives. The despicable Paul Krugman who uses his NY Times column to smear conservatives on a regular basis is a Pilot fave. Today in his column “The Big Hate” he uses a blood libel against conservatives by tying the notorious anti-Semite von Brunn to the conservative side of the political spectrum. A more accurate characterization of von Brunn is found in my headline: Atheist Left Wing Journalism Major Kills Guard at Holocaust Museum Von Brunn hated Jews, Christians, capitalism, Bush, McCain and Rupert Murdoch....

    UPDATE 5: It helps to talk to the boss. The Virginian Pilot editorial staff has decided it had to condemn the killing of Private Long. Somewhat overdue, it’s still welcome. Terrorism comes to Little Rock The killing of abortion doctor Tiller was immediately followed by denunciations of violence by pro-life groups, even those who had protested Dr. Tiller. The letters to the editor following that editorial included quite a number of people who denounced what Dr. Tiller had been doing. It will be interesting and instructive to see the reaction in what President Obama has termed this Islamic country.

    I have asked the publisher of the Virginian Pilot to give the Pilot's response to the murder of the Army recruits in Arkansas. I'm asking because they devoted a full front page story to the killing of the abortion doctor. Is it a question of narrative or another question? I'll publish the response. UPDATE: The response from the publisher (in full) via e-mail: We condemn the violence in both cases. My reply: "No you don't." To this moment, there has been not one word of condemnation in the Virginian Pilot over the murder of Private Long. It should be noted...
