HUFF POST BLOGGER DEFENDS ME?

I must confess that I don’t read the Huffington Post, in any of its iterations, very much. But the other day, my email contained a Google alert indicating that someone at that outfit had linked to my American Spectator column titled “The Wheels Come Off Obamacare.” Ruh-roh, I thought, I guess I’ve been hammered. But [...]

GOP AT FAULT FOR OCARE TRAIN WRECK?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the attempt by members of the media to blame Obamacare’s implementation ills on the GOP. The Dems won all the legislative battles and most of the court battles over this thing. Yet, somehow, it is the GOP’s fault that the wheels are coming off: Conspicuous among the blame-the-GOP crowd [...]

VIDEO: NPR AN “ALL WHITE OPERATION” PER JUAN WILLIAMS

This characteristic, along with their anti-semitism and general condescension toward people of color, is something they have in common with most progressives. Williams phrases it thus: I think the fact that I was a journalist who was not … just a black journalist, but something larger and sometimes even conservative in a point of view [...]

YES, OBAMACARE IS A JOB KILLER

In my latest effusion for the American Spectator, I refute the latest MSM whoppers about ObamaCare’s effect on unemployment: Commenting on the mainstream media of his day, Thomas Jefferson famously observed that ‘The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.’ And it is evident that [...]

VIDEO: WAPO BLOGGER EZRA KLEIN SAYS THE CONSTITUTION IS CONFUSING BECAUSE IT’S, LIKE, REALLY OLD

I have pointed out before that the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein is not the brightest bulb in the circuit. Indeed, his clueless reform posts have provided fodder for HCBS since he was a blogger at TAP. I must confess, however, that even I didn’t realize how bad it really was until I watched the following video and heard him smugly make the following [...]

GALLUP: 75% OF AMERICANS MISTRUST MSM

This shouldn’t be a surprise, considering how often the “news” media have lied to us about Obamacare (and every other important issue), but it’s still amazing that only a quarter of Americans trust the information provided by an industry whose primary role is to provide information: Americans continue to express near-record-low confidence in newspapers and television news — [...]

DUMBEST REFORM POST OF THE WEEK (XIV)

The past week produced a lot of tough competition for this coveted prize.  For sheer cluelessness, however, this post by JournoList founder Ezra Klein takes the bisquit. He manages to say something stupid in almost every line. He begins by repeating the following idiotic canard: I’m really not sure why conservatives are so excited that an electorate primarily [...]

MAGGIE MAHAR, JOURNOLIST & TRIG PALIN

Maggie Mahar is a good example of what passes these days for a progressive health care expert. She doesn’t understand  how our medical delivery system works, nor does she grasp statistical analysis, but she’s good at networking. This is presumably how she snagged an invitation to join Ezra Klein’s now-infamous JournoList, where we find Ms. Mahar discussing such esoteric and arcane health care issues as [...]

JOURNOLIST: THE MOVIE

In addition to exposing the disgraceful collusion of MSM ”reporters” and bloggers on a variety of important stories, the  JournoList revelations provide a useful glimpse of progressive hypocrisy. This video (from the Daily Caller) cleverly contrasts their phony aversion to violence with their sick fantasies about Rush Limbaugh having an MI (Sarah Spitz), Matt Drudge on fire (David [...]

VIDEO: JOURNOLIST FOUNDER EXPLAINS THE NEED TO BE “SNEAKY” ABOUT HEALTH REFORM

We have read about the deliberate and coordinated effort by JournoList members to misinform the public about Jeremiah Wright and Sarah Palin. And, as I pointed out yesterday, the listserv’s founder has been focused on health reform since he first hit big time blogging in 2007.  So, it would be pretty odd if Klein and his accomplices [...]
