"Chicken Hawks," the sequel

Tuesday's New York Times op-ed page has a piece by Congressman Charles Rangel advocating a return of the draft. If you remember a few months back, some anti-war protesters were attacking "chicken hawks," identified as pro-war-on-Iraq Republicans (mainly) who had never served in the military in a combat situation (i.e. you must have been shot […]

Time magazine's big mistake

Time's whistleblower trio contains an odd duck. It's the old "Mini Page" puzzle -- one of these things is not like the other. The odd woman out is Enron's Sherron Watkins. Why? Well, OpinionJournal.com's Dan Ackman lays out the reason why, with an apt analogy. A whistleblower is someone who spots a criminal inside a […]

The latest talking points and the truth

On Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor," last night, with Cal Thomas sitting in for Bill, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) outlined the Democratic strategy for attacking the Bush administration's handling of the War on Terror: They got the Patriot Act. I voted for it. It's going to lapse in 18 months. And some say: "Have we […]

A concession, and proof that it really is the dismal science

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman's latest offering is a pessimistic assessment of the economy. Of note in Krugman's analysis are two things: First, Krugman, possibly for the first time (it would be nice to have access to Lexis-Nexis), acknowledges that the Bush Tax Cut has benefited the economy -- if only "marginally." Second, Krugman […]

Islamofacism and poverty

A "conversation on the beach" is an example of some first-person reporting that is sometimes some of the most insightful and informative available. In the article, which was first written as a letter to a friend, an Israeli holocaust survivor describes a conversation he had with a Palestinian who is apparently a college student at […]

Maybe he should stick to economics

According to Donald Luskin, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman's grasp of history is iffy at best.

Some "freedom fighter" tossed a grenade into a church in Pakistan, killing three girls. As of the latest report, no one has claimed responsibility for the cowardly attack -- but (*sarcasm on*) I'm betting it was the Hindus. They do it all the time. (*sarcasm off*)

Religion in China

Today's Washington Post has an interesting article on the growth of Protestantism in China and how the government is responding. One thing I noticed in the story, however, is what I would consider a lack of elementary religious knowledge. Or, at least, an unwillingness to call a spade a spade. Some Chinese churches push the […]

A new assault on the environment

In the past, when the Bush administration has been poised to destroy the environment, be it his "Clear Skies" initiative or arsenic in drinking water, the New York Times editorial page and its writers have written to the rescue. The Times has spared no amount of vitriol when it comes to protecting the environment from […]

"The decision will give a blueprint for the government to pry open safe deposit boxes, storage lockers, and other private spaces—and to take the contents with civil forfeiture."

This is why no one trusts you or your network, Andrew. It took 5 paragraphs to get to the part where it explains that this "interview" was by a random guy accosting Kent on the street and asking him questions. It's almost as if you want an even smaller audience than you have now. https://twitter.com/KFILE/status/1575930899635511296

GOP congressional candidate Joe Kent's ties to white nationalists include interview with Nazi sympathizer https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/30/politics/kfile-joe-kent-ties-to-white-nationalists-nazi-sympathizer/index.html

It's become a losing battle, but I'm glad @jessesingal stands with the dwindling camp of journalists who don't believe every sentence they publish must be laced with propaganda. If only there were some journalism professors still in that camp.
