by Smitty Because nothing says ‘the Mayor is a soup nazi‘ quite like having the jackwagon decide the size of your drink. Me, I nearly died from White Castle. I guess that edict will come next week. Update: get you a 16 oz. shot of Ace’s finest. Update II: So that’s how you do it! [...]
by Smitty Newsalert quotes the NYT: The wealthiest 1 percent of New York City residents took in nearly one-third of the personal income in the city in 2009 — almost double the comparable proportion nationwide, a new study shows.

Aleister at American Glob calls this: “Best. Hannity. Interview. Ever.” Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com This punk is the strongest argument I’ve seen in favor of police brutality.
For some reason, I never got around to blogging about Joe Muto, who was earning $60,000 a year as an associate producer for “The O’Reilly Factor” when he agreed — for the reported sum of $5,000 — to become a “mole” inside Fox News for Nick Denton’s Gawker blog.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo evidently assigned his communication director Richard Bamberger to compile a 35-page dossier on the work of YNN reporter/blogger Liz Benjamin: The file, composed of highlighted and annotated blog items by Elizabeth Benjamin, one of Albany’s dominant political reporters, paints a picture of an executive branch that’s particularly averse to hints [...]
