The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Heh: @DaveWeigel Dismantles @PiersMorgan, But Good

 Deft, but also delightfully brutal: Sunday night, after David Carr broke the news that Piers Morgan would be ending his CNN show, I searched Twitter to find how his fans were taking it. This was a mistake. Really, who was a Piers Morgan fan? Have you ever met one? No, reaction to CNN’s scheduling news ran the gamut […]

Good-Bye, and Good Riddance: @PiersMorgan Canned at CNN

First smart move that network has made in years: CNN President Jeff Zucker has decided to bring an end to Piers Morgan’s low-rated primetime show, network sources told POLITICO on Sunday. “Piers Morgan Live” could end as early as next month, though Morgan may stay with the network in another role. Morgan, a former British […]

And I’m a Russian Wolfhound

Just call me Borzoi. And I know what you’re thinking: “Borzoi? But you don’t look anything like a Russian wolfhound! As a matter of fact, on closer inspection, you seem to be a golden retriever.” Haters. Yes, I am aware that those documents from the American Kennel Club — a notorious group of hatemongering breedists […]

Pro-Obama Network Labels Washington @FreeBeacon ‘Anti-Clinton Website’

If anyone remembers the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries, MSNBC and other liberal media shifted sharply toward Barack Obama after he won the Iowa caucuses. For the rest of the campaign, Hillary Clinton was fighting the pro-Obama media as much as she was fighting Obama himself. Now, evidently having forgotten their own anti-Clinton propaganda in 2008, […]

#IStandWithDana Gun-Control Freaks Try to Bounce @DLoesch from ‘The View’

Hi @theviewtv. Prepare for the biggest ratings boost you've seen in a long time. #IStandWithDana — Brandon Morse (@TheBrandonMorse) February 2, 2014 Demonizing and marginalizing dissent is what liberals do routinely. They pick an issue — from atomic energy to abortion, from global warming to gay marriage — and declare that people who disagree with […]

The #JusticeForDrV Madness: ESPN Offers Belated ‘Condolences’? Really?

Does this ESPN statement make any damned sense at all? “We understand and appreciate the wide range of thoughtful reaction this story has generated and to the family and friends of Essay Anne Vanderbilt, we express our deepest condolences. We will use the constructive feedback to continue our ongoing dialogue on these important and sensitive […]

MSNBC: Trolls Under a Bridge

Let’s start with this: I don’t give a damn about Chris Christie. Didn’t give a damn about him before “BridgeGate,” and don’t give a damn about him now. Nevertheless, influential people in the Acela Corridor feel otherwise, and the attempt by the liberal media to take down a Republican is always newsworthy, whether or not […]

Their Propaganda, and Ours

Michael Moynihan has a splendid piece at the Daily Beast: In the bad old days of the Cold War, those Americans sympathetic to Moscow could purchase clumsy Kremlin propaganda at various radical bookstores, stocked with glossy magazines and turgid tracts about collective farms and Stakhanovite iron output. . . . But the spread of capitalist […]

NBC’s Maria Shriver Raves About How Abortion Barbie ‘Became a Star’

Erick Erickson dubbed Texas Democrat state Sen. Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie” last year when she filibustered a bill to reduce the legal window for abortion from 24 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Stop and think about that for a minute: 24 weeks is nearly six months. Even if you are an advocate of “a woman’s […]

Macho @EdShow Gets Called Out on Twitter by @AnnCoulter: ‘Lying Pussy’

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz: “Republicans, they’re afraid of me. They don’t want to talk to me.”   So, how’s that working out for you, Ed? Invite me on your show, you lying pussy. RT @Matthops82 "Republicans are afraid of me. They don't want to talk to me." – @edshow — Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) January 15, 2014 […]

The @Maddow Method: MSNBC’s Televised Left-Wing Blog Show

Let’s check the transcript, shall we? . . . this Koch brothers-affiliated group . . . . . . these Koch brothers-affiliated state groups . . . . . . the Koch brothers-connected Florida group . . . That’s the Koch brothers group . . . The same Koch brothers group . . . . […]

Because @Deanofcomedy Isn’t Funny

A guy named Dean Obeidallah uses the Twitter handle @Deanofcomedy and was part of the MSNBC panel whose discussion of a Mitt Romney family photo led host Melissa Harris-Perry to apologize. Obeidallah evidently feels he got shortchanged, and that he didn’t get enough credit for his own “jokes” during that panel, because he’s written an […]
