The moderator for Thursday night’s Palin-Biden debate: Fair and balanced?

Posted by: ST on September 30, 2008 at 10:46 pm » 12 Comments

No way, no how, not Gwen Ifill. Thursday AM Update – 10:22 AM: Here’s a good suggestion, via a reader of NRO’s Campaign Spot blog: Campaign Spot reader Bill offers a good idea: Maybe Governor Palin could compliment Ms Ifill on her book. Palin (to Ifill): I understand you’ve been writing a book about black political […]

 

Media double standards on Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden

Posted by: ST on September 30, 2008 at 8:52 pm » 8 Comments

Last week, I wrote about Joe Biden’s “Tuzla Moment,” where he falsely claimed that while in Afghanistan back in February his helicopter was “forced down,” implying the ‘copter came under enemy fire. As I pointed out, Jake Tapper did some digging and found out that Biden’s claim wasn’t true. Come to find out, that’s not […]

 

Tuesday/Wednesday open thread

I’d like to take a moment to express my disappointment over the fact that the delivery of the Dell Mini that I ordered two weeks ago has been delayed a week, presumably due to popular demand As a pick-me-up, for your listening/viewing entertainment … a blast from the past: LOL. I remember my older sister […]

Reminder: PDS is alive and well

Posted by: ST on September 30, 2008 at 6:53 pm » 8 Comments

While most Americans have been absorbed by varying degrees in the mega-billion dollar bailout drama playing out in Washington, DC, the far left has not let a little thing like “the issues” stand in the way of dribbling out a little PDS in the midst of the crisis. Item 1: Is it true that Gov. […]

 

More on CNN’s “fact checking” efforts

Posted by: ST on September 30, 2008 at 2:53 pm » 1 Comment

Last night I wrote about a very misleading CNN “fact check” report on Barack Obama’s claims about John McCain’s record on deregulation as it relates to Wall Street, and noted how CNN left some important facts out of the article that would have changed the “true” ruling they gave to Obama’s comments. NRO Campaign Spot’s […]

 

Still more on how Democrats helped enable the current economic crisis

Posted by: ST on September 30, 2008 at 12:14 pm » 3 Comments

I’ve written extensively on how Congressional Democrats played a significant role in the economic crisis unfolding before our eyes. The media and (mostly) lefty pundits want to paint this as either a “Republican Congress/Bush administration” failure or at the very least a “bipartisan” failure where everyone shares the blame, but while I know Republicans probably […]

 

More on Barack Obama, ACORN, and “community organizing”

Posted by: ST on September 30, 2008 at 9:50 am » 3 Comments

The evil Stanley Kurtz broke the news yesterday of just how deep Obama’s ties were to not only ACORN but the subprime lending mess brought upon by “community organizers” like ACORN, among others. Mona Charen picks up the ball and runs with it today, writing more extensively about the issue (via Memeo). It’s amazing, isn’t […]

 

Media bias and Barack Obama

Posted by: ST on September 29, 2008 at 10:30 pm » 11 Comments

Glenn Reynolds posts an email he rec’d from someone who works in a major network’s newsroom: “Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into […]

 

“Fact checkers” aren’t always reliable

Posted by: ST on September 29, 2008 at 7:14 pm » 4 Comments

Last week, Patterico comprehensively smacked down FactCheck.org for a piece they put out claiming that the NRA ad run against Obama was “false.” They were also wrong about the McCain ad targeting Obama for supporting sex education for children. The Washington Post fact check team were wrong as well about the NRA ad, and if […]
