I don’t like the title I just came up with, and I don’t feel all that comfortable being critical of bloggers who I also consider friends. But Bruce… Dan… The name of your blog is “Gay Patriot“. It’s been 4 days since the election, and you’ve written nothing about the success of the four pro […]

As if their were any doubt. But I’m not saying it… Chris Mathews is! “Well, this, um… wasn’t an MSNBC debate, was it. It just wasn’t. It had none of the things you mentioned. It didn’t mention all the key fighting points of this campaign…” Fighting points???? Fighting against whom????? There is a hot debate […]

Barry Diller launched The Daily Beast under the auspices of former New Yorker and Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown in October 2008. The presence of Brown, coupled with an emphasis on political coverage that dovetailed with the election of U.S. President […]

More Journalism FAIL – Taking Quotes WAY Out Of Context.

Share Button

This is stunning! If you follow my blog, you will know that I can’t stand it when an interview of a news-maker or candidate is edited to make the person look dumb or out of touch. Conservative radio talk hosts do it all the time. I called foul when Breitbart did it with Sherry Sharrod. […]

Dishonoring A Death

This popped up on Facebook today, and I have to say, I’m a bit appalled. A Facebook friend provides the narrative: “Struggles with his faith” may have been “an indirect cause, at least,” says one activist. This wasn’t some youngster that had been bullied. This was a 38 year old man. The Mormon Church has […]
