How tough is it to prove malice?

Washington lobbyist Vicki Iseman filed suit today against The New York Times over the February 21 hit piece that alleged she was carrying on an extramarital affair with GOP presidential candidate John McCain. The 36-page complaint charges that the story implies an “unprofessional relationship” between Iseman and McCain. Both Iseman and McCain denied any improper […]

This week's sign of the apocalypse

The New York Times has come in for a lot of criticism over the years here at Hoystory and the paper has earned every pixel. But that doesn't mean that all criticism of the Gray Lady is valid, so here's the post where I defend the Times. The Times attacker is Charles Kaiser over at […]

President-elect Barack Obama has announced that he has asked Fred Phelps to give the invocation at the presidential inauguration Jan. 20. The left side of the blogosphere -- the Obamaniacs who got him elected -- are apoplectic. Wait a second. It appears I got the name wrong. No, Obama invited Rick Warren, author of the […]

Reality beckons

Buried on page A32 of today's New York Times (according to Tom Maguire) is word that the generals President Bush put in charge of winning the war in Iraq won't be taking Barack Obama's 16-month withdrawal timetable as gospel -- and Obama's apparently OK with that.
