Fight the smears.
Read this, please.
Watching the watchdogs.
How can I put this politely? Get a clue. Here. Here. And here, from an honest liberal: ABC should release the entire, unedited interview, so that Americans can judge her more fairly. The biggest concern is that she appeared to not know what the Bush Doctrine is. There are, in fact, different definitions of it... Read More
Several readers sent me this Howard Kurtz column in the WaPo today, which mentions that some bitter left-wing blogger , who refers to me as the "slime of the blogosphere," got a hold of a series of e-mails between The New Yorker and me. The e-mail exchange seemed vaguely familiar. Hmmmm. Where have I seen... Read More
The techblogging elite, liberal femme bloggers, and their friends in the MSM are still yammering amongst themselves about the Kathy Sierra incident. Bloggers' code of conduct. Civility badges. Blah blah blah. Big props to Mary Katharine Ham for calling out the one-eyed, left-wing women bloggers (who still won't admit their blind spot) and for demonstrating... Read More
Charles Johnson takes on Howard Kurtz: See also here. And remember: It's an phenomenon and a Digg phenomenon, too. *** Related: Assassination chic, Cheney edition Comments, trolls, and the left's whore fixation Comment commentary
Photoshop by David Lunde On Fox and Friends this morning, Chris Wallace had some interesting comments about his interview with the Finger-Jabber: His reaction to Clinton accusing him of having a "smirk:" "What it was was sheer wonder at what I was witnessing." Heh. On what happened after the interview: "There was no making up... Read More
Howard Kurtz's piece on the MSM's differential treatment of Rep. Patrick Kennedy vs. Rush Limbaugh got a lot of buzz today, but Mark Levin nails it best: Early on, prosecutors claimed they had evidence of over ten felonies. They demanded that Rush plead guilty to some felony—any felony. He refused, always insisting on his innocence.... Read More

Good morning read: Howard Kurtz's very fair, very thorough profile of Fox News Channel's Brit Hume. Last line: *** Speaking of the NYTimes, a reader e-mails: All the better for Special Report! And from The Street, investors continue to be unhappy with NYT management: Morgan Stanley Investment Management said Tuesday it withheld votes for the... Read More
***scroll for updates...statement from NRO...Domenech speaks to Human Events Online...Ben's statement up at Red State (there is no explanation of the apparent cribbing in the NRO piece)*** I just got home from Pittsburgh and am late heading out the door for the Abdul Rahman event in D.C., but I can't let this blog sit silent...

Let's take a closer look at a rose-colored Wall Street Journal editorial on the port deal that is garnering favorable reviews from some of my friends on the right. Sayeth the WSJ: Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is the latest Republican to broadcast his "independence" from President Bush on homeland security, yesterday joining Senator Lindsey... Read More
I'm home. And the me-me-media's circus continues. Growing weary of hearing themselves bray about the Cheney accidental shooting incident and having exhausted their bag full of clown wardrobe tricks, the MSM is now turning on FOX News Channel and Brit Hume, who landed last night's exclusive interview with the veep. Oh. See. How. They. Whine.... Read More
***updated*** The letter from the Joint Chiefs in response to Tom Toles' cartoon, blogged here yesterday, appears in today's Washington Post. No response from Toles or the editors. Maybe the ombudsman will have something to say. Or more likely, given the rabid reaction she provokes on the Left, maybe not. Update: Responses from Toles and... Read More
So, President Bush is now begging newspaper editors to stop publishing classified information obtained via illegal leaks. Howard Kurtz reports: Here's an idea. Instead of going hat in hand to the liberal media elite to prevent these security-compromising disclosures, the White House should try this: 1. Strengthen collective spine. 2. Subpoena reporters. 3. Find the... Read More
Two newspapers, the Modesto Bee and the Sacramento Bee, did the right thing this weekend and published lengthy explanations of how and why they came to publish the unverified claims of former Marine Staff Sgt. Jimmy Massey, the anti-war Left's favorite slanderer of American troops. David Holwerk, Sacramento Bee editorial pages editor, wrote: We should... Read More
WaPo's Howard Kurtz reports that liberal radio network Air America says its audience is "running ahead of projections." Kurtz neglects to mention that the network's pathetic ratings tell a different story. Update, 8:51 pm: Although Kurtz does not challenge the ridiculous "running ahead of projections" assertion, in fairness I should note his comment that Air... Read More
Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz seems to tell Glenn Reynolds that the MSM is paying too little attention to newly disclosed FBI documents that contained the latest Koran-in-the-toilet allegation: Of course, you probably don't know what FBI papers Kurtz is talking about, because, you know, hardly anyone paid attention to them. Kurtz's employer, The... Read More
They just won't give up. When Bush-bashers have no substantive criticisms to make, they resort to Michael Moore's "My Pet Goat" strategy. "My Pet Goat," you'll recall, was the book the president read to Florida schoolchildren for several minutes after he was informed of the terrorist attacks on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. (Correction:... Read More
377 tons... 3 tons... What's the difference? CYA Update: WaPo's Howard Kurtz writes, Elsewhere in the interview, Keller blames his paper's overly hasty reporting on--guess who?--bloggers. Update: Elsewhere in the Times, Tom Brokaw curses those damned bloggers again over Rathergate. When "60 Minutes" reported on documents purporting to show Mr. Bush received preferential treatment in... Read More
