I’m surprised the LA Times printed this

The headline at their "Top of the Ticket" blog:

Obama team probe of Obama team finds no Obama team impropriety

Someone there has a sense of humor. Hee hee

Ministry of Truth watch

I like National Public Radio a lot, even with its Center-Left bias. There's often very good commentary, "good" as in "thought-provoking," even if I wholly disagree with it.

Which is why it is so disappointing to see NPR act like Pravda and rewrite history. Sad

UPDATE: The document that shows conclusively that the letters in question were forgeries is right here. (hat tip: Ace)


And the winner is….!

December 23, 2008

Media Research Center has released the 2008 winners of Best Notable Quotables: The Annual Awards for the Year’s Worst Reporting. I’m sure you’ll recognize the overall winner, but the following is my favorite:

“Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope….Barack Hussein Obama did not win because of the color of his skin. Nor did he win in spite of it. He won because at a very dangerous moment in the life of a still young country, more people than have ever spoken before came together to try to save it. And that was a victory all its own.”

— Time’s Nancy Gibbs, Nov. 17 cover story.

Not surprisingly, this won the Obamagasm category. Applause

Be sure to dig through the list; there are some gems in there.

And now, Caroline Kennedy unveiled

She hasn’t ascended to her throne been appointed to office yet, but Tennyson Hayes thought it time to bring out her official portrait.

Mockery: a weapon of mirth destruction. Oh go on

UPDATE: Oh come now. Do we really expect Her Majesty to lower herself to our base level and obey disclosure laws? Mind your betters, churl.
