Daily Kos Founder Markos Compares Arizona to ‘Apartheid South Africa’

Organizers of Netroots Nation, the national left-wing blog conference that began as “Yearly Kos” in 2006, have decided that next year’s conference will be in Phoenix, Arizona. Marko Moulitsas Zuniga is angry: Netroots Nation announced two days ago that Phoenix, Arizona would host its 2015 conference. I wish the conference the best, but it will unfortunately […]

#FreeKate Lies Rejected by Daily Kos Staffer, and Other New Developments

Generally speaking, people who care about facts are not liberals, so I was amazed when Donald Douglas pointed this out to me. WHAT? A liberal has admitted an error?… @ampowerblog First time for everything, eh? @joanmccarter @dailykos — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) May 25, 2013 McCarter’s original story on Monday, May 20, began with […]

When Liberals Tell the Truth

It’s usually not pretty. Tim Graham at Newbusters catches a DKos diarist telling the truth about what liberals think of babies: “Sasharusha” blogs “back to the whole fetus= parasite thing. That is how I see them. I don’t see them as cute and cuddly. I see them as terrifying and scary. I see pregnancy the […]

Is the FBI Watching Barrett Brown? (And If They’re Not Already, Shouldn’t They?)

One of those weird stories that just drops out of the sky: Regular readers will recall my occasional go-rounds with atheist blogger Barrett Brown, who first appeared on my radar amid the 2009 LGF blogwar and has since occasionally popped up from time to time. My status as a sometimes combatant with Brown resulted in me […]

Mission Accomplished, Markos Moulitsas

You can’t un-Tweet it, you see. Before the suspect had been identified, before his motive was known, you blamed Sarah Palin for an atrocious crime of which she was utterly innocent. The facts of your cruel defamation are chronicled precisely by Professor Willliam Jacobson: As far as I can tell, Matthew Yglesias of Think Progress was […]

TwitterGate Update: Neal Rauhauser Switches Account to ‘Protected’ Status

After my first post about TwitterGate, many of the “Beandogs” in Democratic campaign consultant Neal Rauhauser’s network were laughing as if it were all a big joke. Yesterday, I came back with a second post that connected the dots a bit more clearly — and highlighted Rauhauser’s status as a Daily Kos contributor. In the […]

VIDEO: Conservatives ‘Humping the Leg’ of Violent Extremism, Markos Says

The Blaze features this video of Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas Zuniga at a book event last month: Markos describes “right-wing extremists and an uprising of violence from those groups in the wake of Obama’s election.” Of course, no such “uprising” has been documented. Markos is referring to the now-infamous April 2009 Department of Homeland Security report. The […]

Markos Wants Some Cheese

To go with that whine: In case you were wondering why you haven’t seen me on MSNBC recently, it seems that Joe Scarborough, he of the lowest rated morning show in cableland, has blackballed me. And Phil Griffin, the alleged president of MSNBC, is going along with it. (Via Memeorandum.) Did Moulitsas ever mock MSNBC’s […]
