Memorial Day

This blog would like to thank the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who made the ultimate sacrifice for God and Country.

You have our eternal gratitude.

A Crack in the Liberal Media Facade

The New York Times criticized its own coverage of the Iraq war:

“Over the last year this newspaper has shone the bright light of hindsight on decisions that led the United States into Iraq… In doing so ? reviewing hundreds of articles written during the prelude to war and into the early stages of the [...]

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

A different view on “security”…

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all.”

–Helen Keller

That’s Some Funny Shit Right There

Davids Medienkritik brings this story to our attention:

In a blatantly biased anti-Bush article, left-left-wing German SPIEGEL ONLINE claims

Bush’s Face Makes (People) Aggressive (Bushs Gesicht macht aggressiv)

The “study” SPIEGEL ONLINE bases it’s assertion on is not worthy of any further consideration.

After warming up it’s readers to the association between President Bush’s face [...]

Lomborg on the Global Warming Propaganda Film of 2004

Bjorn Lomborg gives us the straight dope on The Day After Tomorrow:

If The Day After Tomorrow were just another cheesy Hollywood movie, we could forgive it for erring from the facts. But its makers promise something else. “There’s more truth than hype” is the phrase being used to propel worldwide audiences into theatres from [...]

Jokes! Part II

In an effort to give equal time, this post is about John Kerry’s alleged joke. When President Bush fell off his bicycle, the Drudge Report reported that Kerry said:

“Did the training wheels fall off?”

Sarcasm: ha ha ha! That’s great! Somebody falls off a bike and you make a joke! That’s RICH! (note [...]

Photo of the Week

Here’s the story:

The family of slain teenager Paul Childs will receive $1.325 million under a proposed settlement from the city of Denver – the largest payout for a police shooting in city history.

The settlement comes less than 11 months after the 15-year-old developmentally disabled boy was shot to death and before [...]

Jokes!

Recently, part-time comedian and full-time Colorado Republican governor Bill Owens delivered a virtual “hit parade” of French jokes:

“Keynoting Saturday at the Michigan Republican Party Convention, Owens quipped, “You know why they planted those big trees along the boulevard in Paris? So the invading armies could march in the shade.”

Ha ha ha! Keep ‘em [...]

Revelation! There are Bad People EVERYWHERE!

Thanks to Instapundit for the pointer:

UN troops buy sex from teenage refugees in Congo camp

“Teenage rape victims fleeing war in the Democratic Republic of Congo are being sexually exploited by the United Nations peace-keeping troops sent to the stop their suffering.

The Independent has found that mothers as young as 13 – the [...]

Mainstream Media Magazine

Check out this from Right Wing News.

Hee hee! Thanks to Ace for the pointer.

NOTE: Due to gigantic shakeups at work, blogging on my part will be minimal until further notice. I hope my fellow bloggers will pick up the slack.

The Fallen, Part II

Recently, some national media corporations thought that broadcasting names of Americans who died in the Iraq War is an anti-war protest statement rather than a tribute to American soldiers (here is how ABC news, who broadcasts Nightline with Ted Koppel, reported the story).

Now, Doonesbury cartoonist Gary Trudeau wants to use his medium for a [...]

Bias on Bias

Roger L. Simon talks about the biased press:

I agree with Jay Rosen this morning (PressThink) that journalism is saturated with bias and that is a good thing. In fact, I would go further — it’s completely irrelevant whether it is good or bad anyway because it is bred in the bone. Journalism is created [...]

Hanson on Teddy

Victor Davis Hanson demands some apologies:

Ted Kennedy is the senior U.S. senator from Massachusetts. He wields enormous influence and has appointed himself as surrogate spokesman for the Democratic opposition. Yet here is how he recently weighed in about Abu Ghraib: “Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam’s torture chambers reopened under new management ? U.S. [...]

Press on Press

In an article in the Washington Times by Jennifer Harper, she examines how the press continues to focus on the images from Abu Ghraib while other stories like the mass graves from Hussein’s reign and U.S. success stories are set aside.

Accounts and graphic photos of Iraqi prisoner abuse persist in the press despite the [...]

120,000 Terrorists

Here’s the news:

“Before helping to launch the criminal information project known as Matrix, a database contractor gave U.S. and Florida authorities the names of 120,000 people who showed a statistical likelihood of being terrorists — sparking some investigations and arrests.”

What does the Matrix do?

“According to Congressional testimony and news reports, it appears [...]
