Still ahead of the news cycle?

White House adviser Karl Rove's lawyer says that special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has told him that Rove will not be indicted in the CIA leak case. "In deference to the pending case, we will not make any further public statements about the subject matter of the investigation," Luskin said in a written statement Tuesday. "We […]

Another dumb move

A couple of weeks back Sen. John Kerry did a softball interview in the New York Times about his efforts to resuscitate his hopes for running for president again in 2008. Kerry has decided that a year and a half after he lost the November 2004 election is the time to stand up to charges […]

Predictable

San Francisco's ban on the sale of handguns has been overturned by the courts. What's hilarious is the spokesman for the city attorney's response to the ruling. “We're disappointed that the court has denied the right of voters to enact a reasonable, narrowly tailored restriction on handgun possession,” Dorsey said. “San Francisco voters spoke loud […]

Terrorists are like liberal Democrats

At least, that's what you'd have to believe if you read Monday's New York Times editorial on the three suicides at the terrorist prison camp at Guantanamo Bay. OpinionJournal.com's James Taranto takes a whack at a portion of the Times editorial. The Times editorial page bemoans the plight of these poor innocent terrorists: [Their suicides […]

About that Federal Marriage Amendment

Yes, the Republicans trot out the constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage out ever couple of years in order to rally their base. And if the Democrats had control of either house, you can bet your knickers that there would've been some vote on raising the minimum wage. In other words, it's politics and […]

The methamphetamine menace

I'm sick as a dog and I made a run out to the drug store to get my favorite cold-medicine drug: Aleve Cold & Sinus. Problem. It contains pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine is used to make methamphetamines. Apparently there's a relatively new federal law which turns these over-the-counter drugs into pharmacy-technician-has-to-hand-them-to-you drugs. The first drugstore I hit […]

I know I shouldn't be doing this

Last week I said that the media would be better off just ignoring Michael Berg, the father of Nicholas Berg who was decapitated by deceased terrrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Unfortunately, Berg is running for Congress from Delaware on the Green Party ticket, so the press is going to have to pay attention to him until […]

Maybe it should've gotten an "R" rating

An upcoming film apparently has not enough sex, vulgarity and violence. A church-produced film about a school whose losing football team is turned around after the coach turns to God has been slapped with a "PG" rating -- for being too religious. The Reverend Alex Kendrick, who directed and stars in "Facing the Giants," says […]

No jumping on the bed

You know you did it as a kid, and your parents were none too happy when they caught you. Well, an article in today's Wall Street Journal [subscription only] reveal a new danger facing the earth. Imagine the surface of Earth as a giant trampoline that accumulated a slab of ice over the winter, and […]

Zarqawi reax

I shouldn't be surprised, but the couple of conversations I overheard Thursday in the newsroom regarding the assassination of the head of al Qaeda in Iraq were along the lines those going int the more conspiratorial and insane parts of the left-wing Internet. I heard one comment that Bush had known where Zarqawi was for […]

🧵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.
