Journalistic malpractice

The New York Times has a serious, deeply rooted, institutional problem: It's filled to the brim with left-liberal journalists, editors and executives who too often abandon basic journalistic principals when they conflict with their political orthodoxy. Sunday's column by public editor Byron Calame addressed the April 9 New York Times Magazine story by Jack Hitt, […]

Now that that's done

Now that Saddam Hussein is officially and ex-dictator, there's a couple of quick issues I want to touch on. First, I found the attempt to stop the execution of the mass murdering tyrant by the Iraqi justice system by filing an appeal to a U.S. court based upon Saddam's "rights" in a U.S. civil trial […]

Iranian military officers in Iraq

Author/columnist Richard Miniter asks why the news of the capture of Iranian military officers in Iraq (who weren't there training the Iraq Army or police) isn't plastered across the front pages of American newspapers and the lead story on the network newscasts. But this is far more than a cross-border spat. Evidence of Iran’s involvement […]

A case in point is the treatment of the still-dead terrorist Yasser Arafat. Scott Johnson […]

Good for the goose

I condemned Florida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson earlier this month for undertaking some freelance diplomacy with Syria. To assure Hoystory readers that I can be bipartisan in my criticism, today I condemn Republican Sen. Arlen Specter for doing the same thing.

I'm sure mine is in the mail

Microsoft and Acer collaborated to send review PCs loaded with Windows Vista to certain bloggers which they can keep, gift to readers (yeah, right) or return to Microsoft (yeah, right, right). Just a note to the Microsoft marketing team: I can be bought. Cheap.

What he said

ESPN's Bill Simmons lists some presents that should be given out for Christmas and I would like to echo #5: 5. Five HDTV trucks and accompanying camera equipment Note: That's just for CBS. (Seriously, CBS, you're a major television network. Move into the 21st century and show all of your football games in HDTV. It's […]

The tolerant left

Jon Henke over at QandO went slogging through the sewers over at conspiracy nut (how's that natural gas pipeline in Afghanistan going?) and hater/cartoonist Ted Rall's site and came up with this gem. [You might have to scroll down, the permalinks don't appear to be working.] A reader responding to my column "When is a […]

Constancy

Just to make sure the Earth was still spinning properly on its axis I poked my head in over at DailyKos to see what the nutjob left take on the death of President Gerald R. Ford was. There are a few thoughtful posts. There are a few serious, well-crafted analyses of Ford's pardon of Nixon […]
