  • Newsweek’s Evan Thomas rips Obama speech: ‘He was being a God [expletive] Democrat!’

    07/03/2011 9:55:04 AM PDT · by markomalley · 45 replies
    A Mark Halperin misstep this is not, but Newsweek magazine columnist Evan Thomas had some pretty strong words for President Barack Obama Friday. On “Inside Washington,” host Gordon Peterson asked his panel to suggest a way to overcome the current impasse and get Congress and the White House moving on a budget deal. Thomas offered up a solution, but also expressed his frustration with Obama. “Yeah, because it’s happened before – Obama has got to be President of the United States,” Thomas said. “He has to be two things. He has to make a public case of how bad is...

    Rarely does a story hit with the impact of former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas’s revelation in the New York Times magazine Wednesday that he is an undocumented immigrant. Within minutes of it appearing on the Times’ website, it burned across Twitter like wildfire, pushed along each time with passionate endorsements from influential journalists. Meanwhile, ABC News blasted excerpts from its exclusive interview with Vargas, which will air on “World News” and “Nightline” tomorrow and “Good Morning America” on Friday.... The Post, the paper that hired Vargas as an intern, put him on a team that won a Pulitzer...

    An unusual example of media efficiency. There’s a huge new supply available of her e-mails as governor and an eternally huge demand among Palin-hating liberals for new dirt on her. If you’re a cash-strapped editor, why not match one to the other and let the market do your work for you? Palin derangement is like the wind, or the sun: All the media has to do is harness it to provide a limitless supply of productivity.Just think, if she runs for president, they might be able to outsource whole stories to their liberal readership instead of just document analysis. Then...

    President Obama spent last week talking about the success of the auto bailout, but his conclusions about its success may be a bit misleading, according to the Washington Post's Glenn Kessler. The title of the piece is: President Obama’s phony accounting on the auto industry bailout. Kessler spells out four examples of things President Obama has said since June 4 on the topic of the auto bailout that aren't completely correct. * Chrysler has repaid every dime to the government: The U.S. government only got 90% back of their combined loans to Chrysler, made during both the Bush and Obama...

    From WashPost: Freedom of Information Act not for skeptics’ useby Steve Milloy In a bizarre Memorial Day editorial, the Washington Post criticized climate skeptics for using the Freedom of Information Act to pry documents concerning Climategater Michael Mann from the University of Virginia. The Post labeled the skeptics’ FOIA efforts as “harrassing” and “nuisance tactics.”The Post, however, has been entirely silent on Greenpeace’s efforts to FOIA documents from the University of Virginia concerning Pat Michaels, University of Delaware concerning David Legates and from Harvard University concerning Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas — efforts that are truly “harrassing” and “nuisance” in...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The Washington Post Co. said Friday that revenue was flat in its newspaper publishing division in the first quarter but net profit fell by two-thirds on lower enrollment in its education business. The Post Co., which owns the Kaplan chain of schools and television outlets in addition to its flagship newspaper The Washington Post, said net profit was down 67 percent in the quarter at $15.2 million. Revenue was down seven percent in the quarter that ended on April 3 to $1.06 billion while earnings per share fell to $1.87 from $4.91 per share a year ago....

    Washington Post “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler awards Rep. Paul Ryan two Pinocchios for statements like this: There’s a lot of misinformation about what we are proposing and what we are not proposing. We’re saying: Save Medicare by reforming it for people who are 54 and below by working like a system just like members of Congress and federal employees have. To claim that Ryan is misleading people about his plan, Kessler takes a page from the Politifact playbook, converting differences of opinion into factual disputes.What’s Kessler’s beef? Under a 1997 law, the government pays a set rate of 75 percent of...

    Here’s a concession from a Democrat Party partisan in the Washington Post: The truth is that Palin remains the only real first-tier presidential candidate the Republicans have — the only candidate who has been on a national ticket. Should she decide to run an active campaign, she would likely recover a good bit of the ground she has lost…It’s still not too late for her to give a series of serious policy speeches; not too late for her to put together a real campaign staff; not too late for her to crisscross Iowa and New Hampshire; and not too late,...

    Two mainstream news organizations are receiving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from Obamacare’s Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) — a $5 billion grant program that’s doling out cash to companies, states and labor unions in what the Obama administration considers an effort to pay for health insurance for early retirees. The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans’ money. “It is fine with me if they continue covering the ObamaCare debate,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, in an e-mail to The Daily Caller. “When NBC used to...

    The Washington Post apologized Wednesday for publishing two articles in March that "contained substantial material that was borrowed and duplicated, without attribution, from The Arizona Republic newspaper." "This is the most serious kind of matter for a news organization," executive editor Marcus Brauchli said in a statement to The Cutline. "Taking information without attribution is unethical and not in keeping with The Post's standards of journalism. There are no mitigating circumstances for plagiarism." The Post, in the apology, doesn't name the reporter or link to the articles in question. But from the paper's own description of the articles, published shortly...

    Our 911 protest was "defensible opposition" against the Ground Zero Mosquestrosity. Our June 6th protest was "defensible opposition" against the Ground Zero mosquestrosity. So the Islamic overlord imam Rauf, who hopes to institute sharia in America and extols the work of the anti-American vile Jew hater Qaradawi, is once again revealing his supremacism and contempt for 70% of America's people.

    In order to force the absence of a “quorum,” and thus delay an inevitable Republican victory, senate Democrats have fled Wisconsin, holding their votes hostage “Dog Day Afternoon” style in motels across Illinois. In the mean-time union members, government employees, and teachers—some with students in tow—have been playing hooky to mau-mau the remaining members of the state senate. Enter Monday's lead editorial in the Washington Post. Choosing the side of moderate reform rather than rabid collectivism, the Post cautioned that “abolishing contract negotiations between unions and management is not necessarily a panacea for state and local governments - or a...

    Last year I wrote a column about how President Obama totally disrespected Black America (during Black History Month of all times) and there was no outcry from within our community. Now, you have the same thing happening again, of course during Black History Month. This time the offender is the illustrious Washington Post (WP) newspaper. They are supposed to be one of the top newspapers in the country, so this makes their offense even more egregious. Next Wednesday, the WP will be hosting a town hall meeting in Prince George’s County, Md. For those who live outside of this area,...
