    The New York Times ^ | October 23, 2014 | Ross Douthat
    Some years ago now, when the conservative media group Newsmax put in a bid to buy the limping, failing Newsweek, I wrote a post arguing that trying to reinvent one of the newsweeklies as a (moderately) right-of-center publication was as good a bet as any. Here was the nub of my argument: If [Jon Meacham, the previous editor] had wanted to play to what seems like Newsweek’s business strength — its large audience outside the Acela corridor — he would have tried to tilt the magazine toward the center-right rather than the center-left, in the hopes of becoming the go-to...

    Canada has experienced two murderous jihad terror attacks in the last three days, not long after the Islamic State called for such attacks – but the denial and obfuscation are as thick as ever. [SNIP] In reality, what motivated him was blazingly obvious, but it was the one thing most Western government officials and all of the mainstream media have determined to ignore, and so the search was one for some other remotely plausible motive that could be sold to a public that is increasingly suspicious of what the government and media elites are telling them.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin. "Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize," Costello said in a statement to POLITICO. On Wednesday, before playing a tape in which Bristol Palin describes an alleged altercation at a party in Wasilla, Alaska, Costello said, “This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.” In the...

    Today's Morning Joe offered an especially ugly example of the MSM circling the wagons around its political favorites. The topic was the way that Hillary orchestrated the trashing of Bill's many women. Joe Scarborough argued forcefully that this should be remembered when as a presidential candidate she rails against the "war on women." But there was HuffPo's Sam Stein, dismissing Hillary's calculated campaign against Monica Lewinsky as merely a "personal family matter." Then it was the turn of MSNBC's own Thomas Roberts to cover for Hillary. Roberts argued that despite her powerful status as First Lady of Arkansas and later...

    Monday evening in Ferguson, Mo., protestors shouted down a CNN camera crew’s live shot reporting on developments in the story involving Officer Darren Wilson killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown earlier this year. During the 11 p.m. hour, host Don Lemon attempted to throw to CNN reporter Sarah Sidner for an update, but the broadcast was overwhelmed by shouting and interruptions from protestors surrounding the crew. Sidner attempted to talk through the shouting, but her audio was clearly problematic. Lemon cut her off and ended the satellite broadcast due to technical issues.

    Greatest, latest parlor game: watching liberals pretzel-ize logic in arguing against a travel ban on people from Ebola-affected countries. We've noted a few examples here, here and here. But as wacky as those assertions were, they might all have to take a back seat to the absolutely absurd argument offered up by Chris Matthews on this evening's Hardball. Matthews suggested that a travel ban wouldn't work since Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who infected two people before dying of Ebola, lied to get into the US. Can't Chris see that his argument runs headlong against logic? That it is precisely...

    Ebola is causing such anxiety that even alarm over an outbreak of enterovirus D-68 — far more prevalent and linked to the deaths of at least four children — has been crowded out. Ditto news of the Islamic State’s rampage, a stock-price rollercoaster, and the impending midterm elections. Understandably, two concerns dominate the public discussion. One is incompetence. Lulled into ever more dependence on government by the metastasis of regulation in what used to be the realm of private action, Americans are shaken by Washington’s inability to function. It is bungling elementary tasks. There is a sense of unraveling, a...

    Fox News may be demolishing its more liberal cable news rivals in the ratings but to Democrats it’s still the bogeyman. That’s why President Obama took the opportunity to criticize the network during a speech defending his economic record at Northwestern University today. But in doing so, the president not only demonstrated the weakness of his position but also why he doesn’t understand Fox’s appeal. During his speech, the president said this about Fox and its audience: A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out their agenda. Hopefully also grounded in facts. There’s a reason fewer Republicans...

    Barack Obama is taking the nation to war on his own terms yet again. It is not the first time he has done so, but so many in the press are determined to believe that the war in Iraq and Syria has transformed Obama into war president. The new fight will be a complex campaign which, while necessary, is being waged in a fashion that often appears to elevate domestic political considerations over operational necessities. That is a terrible way to fight a war, and it merits criticism. It is that legitimate criticism Obama’s defenders would prefer to avoid addressing....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Brace yourselves. It looks as though it's going to be 2008 and 2012 all over again -- where a 50 year-old GOP haircut and a 35 year-old GOP rock are big news but Hillary will get a sweet mainstream media pass when it comes to vetting her past and formative years. Worse, any attempt by New Media to do the vetting the MSM won't will be met with equal parts wrist-flicking and mockery. Oh, and once again, Politico will lead the Democratic defense. The tweets below are written by high-level Politico staffers. Politico presents itself as an objective news outlet...
  • Atlantic Reporter Compares Palin to Burqa-Wearing Taliban Supporter

    Unfortunately I don't possess the intellectual nuance required to grasp why an elite leftwing journalist would think it was okay to compare a female governor and mother of five to a burqa-wearing Taliban supporter brandishing a pistol. Apparently, Jeffrey Goldberg's intellectual superiority is so superior only dogs can hear it:Goldberg deleted the tweet. He didn't apologize. Because that would be an admission that comparing a conservative woman to a terrorist supporter is wrong. Instead... Goldberg chose to assume the one role the elite media enjoy more than demeaning conservative women - that of The Victim....
  • CNN Poll: 110% of Scottish Population Have Decided on Independence; 58% Say Yes, 52% No

    In a new report from CNN, televised live today, 110% of Scots have made their decision on independence, with 58% saying "yes," and 52% voting "no." This picture actually made it to the air: In case you can do math better than CNN's copy editor, that adds up to more than 100% of Scotland's populace. And as you also probably know, 110% of an electorate cannot vote on a referendum (unless there is massive voter fraud). The flub occurred during Brooke Baldwin's three o'clock show this afternoon, the 18th of September. When the mistake was made, nothing was said, and...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Nicolle Wallace told her new co-hosts on “The View” Monday that her relationship with Sarah Palin was “irreparably damaged” following the infamous Katie Couric interviews during the 2008 presidential campaign. Wallace, a senior advisers and representatives of Sen. John McCain and the former Alaska governor’s campaign, revealed Monday that her relationship with Palin “erupted and exploded” in the aftermath of the interview, in which Palin claims she was set up “for failure.” “Our relationship really erupted and exploded, and was irreparably damaged after the Katie Couric interview, in which she had thought I had set her up for failure,” said...

    On Friday, all three network morning shows seized on reports that Sarah Palin and her family were "caught in a massive brawl" during a house party in Anchorage, Alaska. ABC's Good Morning America opened with substitute co-host Lara Spencer declaring: "One witness saying it was like an episode of Jerry Springer, her kids throwing punches. What sparked this rumble in the tundra?" The song Eye of the Tiger was heard playing in the background. In the full report that followed on GMA, correspondent Paula Faris pushed the tabloid story: "According to the Washington Post, Palin, along with her husband Todd and kids Bristol, Willow, and Track, arriving in...
  • Obama and the Corporate Media – Lies and Deception on Syria and ISIL

    The mass media, in their coverage of Obama's speech, outlining his new strategy on managing the crisis of the 'Islamic Caliphate', are acting as retail merchants for the White House and State Department's campaign of deception on Syria and Iraq. The most obvious aspect of this co-operative effort is seen in the repetition of the mythology that Obama hasn't yet tried assisting rebel forces in Syria. Such claims are so divorced from reality they are staggering. Even so, Americans are, in the main, so willfully misinformed, that they are easy targets for the false narratives they are fed in deceitful...

    Efforts by city leaders in the St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black 18-year-old was fatally shot by a white police officer to repair the local government's fractured relationship with its residents got off to a rocky start Tuesday at the first public meeting of elected officials since Michael Brown's death. The shooting last month exposed an undercurrent of racial unrest in Ferguson and other nearby suburbs in mostly black communities of north St. Louis County, and prompted days of sometimes-violent protests...
  • How to protect your family from home invasion (Advice: wasp spray & "treat them like royalty")

    In June, an intruder broke into Sandra Bullock's Los Angeles home and got within steps of the star's bedroom. On Aug. 14, NBA star Ray Allen's family was hit, waking up to find seven intruders in their Coral Gables, Florida, home. Not even the Kennedys are immune: On July 15, an intruder got into their sprawling compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
  • Columnist: ISIS Is Bush's Fault, But GOP Trying to 'Yoke Obama With' It

    On August 31, The New York Times ran a op-ed in which columnist Charles M. Blow contended that Republicans are trying to use the 9/11 attacks to make Americans fear ISIS and "yoke Obama with the ill effects of a war started by [George W. Bush]." One immediate problem with this theory is that ISIS--now IS--is not an ill effect of the Iraqi War but of the power vacuum created by President Obama's precipitous withdrawal of all U.S. Troops in 2011. But Obama knows this, which is why he blamed the troop pull-out on George W. Bush early last month....
