Did Obama’s Media Market Bubble Burst?

It sure has been interesting over the past week to watch the news media finally approach the Obama administration with the one tactic many of us thought they’d never use in their coverage: Some good old fashioned scrutiny. Despite showing up to the game way late on Benghazi, many in the mainstream media are actually…

When Is a Scandal Not A Scandal?

I don’t like reading the New York Times in the morning because I’m always afraid my head will explode and that would make it difficult to go through the rest of the day.  My aforementioned head almost did explode when I read this headline on page one: I.R.S. Focus on Conservatives Gives G.O.P. an Issue…

A News Media of Trekkies

The first celebrity I ever met was actor William Shatner. It was back in the 1980s. I was probably twelve or thirteen at the time. Shatner was making an appearance at a car show in Denver that I went to with my family. I stood in a long line for nearly two hours to get…

The News Media’s Comical Resistance to the Koch Brothers

Last week, the New York Times reported that conservative businessmen, Charles and David Koch, are showing some interest in purchasing eight regional newspapers currently owned by the Tribune Company. They include the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Orlando Sentinel and Hartford Courant. It didn’t take long for the story to spread fear among…

‘Accidental Racist’ Feels Like a Symptom of Munchausen Syndrome

I’m not going to waste any time critiquing the lyrics of “Accidental Racist”, the controversial new song performed by singers Brad Paisley and LL Cool J. The mainstream media clearly has a fascination with the duo’s awkward attempt to begin another national dialogue on racism, but I honestly find stuff like this to be sophomoric…

Media Ignore Mass Murder Trial

Remember all the attention the media gave to the O.J. Simpson murder trial?  How could they resist, especially TV, since cameras were allowed in the courtroom? A super star football player, who’s black, is charged with killing his wife and the young man who was with her, both of whom are white.  Never mind what…

Hypocrite-in-Chief

Hypocrisy – n. The practice of professing beliefs, feelings or virtues that one does not hold or possess; insincerity. While claiming his concern for America’s children, President Obama cancels White House tours instead of cutting the countless numbers of wasteful projects, grants, and studies that fail to benefit any American life.  Hypocrisy at its finest. Sequestration was part…

….If A Conservative Said That?

thought-bubble-can-you-imagine

I’m old enough to know better by now, but I’m still amazed how Democrats and liberals can get away with saying a whole lot of stuff while, if said by a Republican or conservative, they’re ignored or ridiculed by the mainstream media. One of the latest comments is from New Jersey Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez who’s now…
