More on suveillance

This I really love. ABC News finally finds a "Constitutional scholar" who believes that the NSA's surveillance of international communications between al Qaeda agents overseas and people in the United States are illegal. The guy's name is David Cole. (Nope, I'd never heard of him either.) He's certainly no Lawrence Tribe or Cass Sunstein. What's […]

Haul 'em off

It looks like New York Times reporters Eric Lichtblau and James Risen are going to be spending some time in the inside of a jail cell. Risen and Lichtblau are the two reporters whose bylines were atop the article revealing a code-word National Security Agency surveillance of al Qaeda. Now, Lichtblau and Risen can't be […]

All cultures are not created equal

Actually, this one is a combination of culture and religion. Nazir Ahmed appears calm and unrepentant as he recounts how he slit the throats of his three young daughters and their 25-year old stepsister to salvage his family's "honor" -- a crime that shocked Pakistan. The 40-year old laborer, speaking to The Associated Press in […]

This just in

Videogames are not the same as real life. Follow the link for an amusing video of an older gamer discovering that just because you can do a lap a Laguna Seca in an Acura NSX in 1:41 in a video game doesn't mean that you can do the same thing in real life.

Morons everywhere

Last week over at OpinionJournal.com's "Best of the Web Today," James Taranto took note of an unfortunate choice of words on the Carl Zeiss Web site. Advertising Slogans German Companies Should Avoid "The final solution will be revealed on 01/18/06."--Carl Zeiss AG Web site On a photography message board I frequent, there was a post […]

Why Barbara Boxer should shut her trap

Ever since the New York Times decided that they wouldn't get scooped by their own reporter and that in their enlightened judgement revealing a classified surveillance program wouldn't hurt U.S. national security, Sen. Barbara Boxer (Dumb-Calif.) has been crying "impeachment" to anyone who will listen. Well, I predicted it and now we've got a poll […]

An explanation, but not an excuse

A couple of weeks ago, the New Bedford (Mass.) Standard Times published a story about Homeland Security agents visiting a 22-year-old UMass-Dartmouth student after he checked out Mao Zedong's "Little Red Book". All of the horror of Big Brother reared its head and the news briefly sobered up the senior senator from Massachusetts enough that […]

🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)

More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.

The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
