Mainstream media

The first night of broadcasting from the Republican National Convention provided an unexpected bounty of outrageous media bias. About a year ago, I filled out all the forms to be put in Cal Poly’s part time teaching pool. One of the classes I thought that I could teach was “Media Ethics.” (How can you teach […]

Taking Politifraud to the woodshed

National Review in an unsigned editorial posted today lays out yet more reasons why the self-appointed watchdogs at Politifact can’t be trusted. I encourage you to read the whole thing, but there’s one part I want to highlight and then elaborate on. PolitiFact’s other arguments are that Medicare spending will continue to rise and that […]

Media Mash

Sadly, the longer I’ve been out of journalism, the more my respect for journalists wanes. When I was sitting in a newsroom 5 days a week, I saw the work they produced was not always fair; it was not always complete; it was not always accurate. But at the same time, I interacted with those […]

God's economics

Reading this bit of stupidity today made my blood boil. Americans often tell pollsters they yearn for a return to the Christian principles on which the U.S. was founded.

Lies Obama told me

The left-wing Tax Policy Center and Obama’s sycophantic media (and Politifraud which rates it “Mostly True”) have joined up to look at the broad outlines and principles of Mitt Romney’s tax plan and decided that Republicans plan to raise taxes on the middle class while cutting them for the wealthy. The Wall Street journal has […]

Olympic-sized taxes

Politifraud did it again this week. Americans for Tax Reform came out with a press release linked to the Olympic fever pointing out that for those athletes that find themselves in to top tax bracket this year, each gold medal will cost them up to $9,000 in taxes. Note the “up to” and “top tax […]

Can’t stop the stupid

Given the opportunity to look like an honest man, Harry Reid has decided to go for broke on his big lie. On Wednesday, Reid stuck to his story, and broadened it. "I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination," Reid said in a telephone call with Nevada reporters. "I have had a […]
