They don’t call me Mr. Freedom of the Press

I would normally respond to this in the comments, but I think this is a probably a good opportunity to lay out where I stand on freedom of the press vs. national security. First, John’s comment: Thank you Mr. Freedom of the Press. Can we also shut down the NYT website? Not many people are […]

Wikileaks roundup

A couple of points on the latest round of Wikileaks disclosures: PFC Bradley Manning is apparently the source of most, if not all, of the material Wikileaks has published – including documents on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars that has endangered the lives of civilians who’ve helped U.S. and NATO troops in those countries. Manning […]

Not in my lifetime

Max Boot comments on the latest Wikileaks document dump over at Commentary Magazine’s “Contentions” blog and questions the American media’s patriotism – specifically The New York Times – when it comes to aiding and abetting serious damage to U.S. national security. There was a time when editors and reporters thought of themselves as citizens first […]

Power corrupts

Holding those in power accountable is no longer the exclusive domain of the media, whistleblowers or inspectors general. Via The Atlantic magazine’s saner blogger, comes this surveillance video of a woman apparently getting some passive-aggressive harassment at the hands of some TSA officials in Phoenix. If the video is what it purports to be, there […]

While updating the site, I ended up testing the link to Hoystory’s Kindle page and discovered that Fred Coulter had uploaded some screenshots he took 9 months ago from his kindle. That’s right. Hoystory at #3. Followed by The New York Times at #7.

Changes coming

I’ve been using the current Redoable theme for several years – starting shortly after I moved this site from the Blogger platform to WordPress. In that time, the developer of the theme has moved on to other things, and the underlying coding can’t take advantage of many newer plug-ins and features. For example, I’m using […]

Hypocrisy and re-writing history

Right-wing hatchet man turned left-wing hatchet man David Brock is defending for his own organization that which he has condemned other organizations for. Today's New York Times reports that part of the new effort David Brock is setting up to counter the right's massive spending in advance of 2012 will depend on...undisclosed donors. Media Matters, […]

Mental vs. physical

I just got done watching “Fox News Sunday” and the consensus on the panel seemed to be that the new TSA scanners and pat-down procedures are much ado about nothing. Tell that to Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer of Lansing, Mich. For the parade of horribles, check out the voluminous links at the bottom of this […]

I continue to be annoyed by online media companies skimping on the copy editors.

If you disagree, we may feud over the issue.

Is it true that Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist?

#PolitiFactThis #FactCheckThis @GlennKesslerWP @ddale8 @asharock @YLindaQiu @factcheckdotorg @ReutersFacts

Sounds dangerous, right @Acosta?

Sen. Marsha Blackburn @MarshaBlackburn

Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist and the top Republican on his committee.

Then he released the records to intimidate his opponents.
