Paradise Lost: Fred Hiatt and Bowles-Simpson

By: Tuesday April 22, 2014 5:01 pm

As many have noted, the Very Serious People in Washington have a peculiar love affair with the Bowles-Simpson commission, or more accurately the report produced by the two co-chairs of the commission. (The report is often referred to as a report of the commission. This is not true since it did not have the support of the necessary majority of commission members.) There is no one in Washington who is more Serious, than Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt.

Today’s Anti-Social Security Propaganda

By: Monday January 28, 2013 11:20 am

Well, it looks like there is a new push on in the long term destruction of Social Security today. Now, I usually write about the plight of the long term unemployed and underemployed but I am getting close to Social Security eligibility so decided I would discuss the anti Social Security effort today.

Pliers and Hot Pokers and Cat O’ Nine Tails That Sting, These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Cherubic torture fanboy Marc Thiessen does not like people talking smack about his weekend hobby and he uses the valuable space given to him by genocidal maniac enabler Fred Hiatt to continue to argue that even though “waterboarding can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against restraints, lasting psychological damage and death” it’s totally cool when we do it because …. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Late Night FDL: In Which Fred Hiatt is Invited to Preach His Neocon Sermons in Fallujah

By: Saturday September 10, 2011 8:00 pm

There are things one reads that uplift one; things that bore one; things that irritate one.

And then there are things that make you want to hunt down the author and slap the taste out of his or her mouth.

Such was WaPo editor Fred Hiatt’s panegyric to the last misbegotten ten years of Treasury-draining wars of choice.

Oh good another too close to call election and other sundry affairs.

Even Liberal Fred Hiatt Says…

By: Sunday December 5, 2010 7:00 pm

America’s fifth most influential liberal journalist Fred Hiatt doesn’t have enough to do these days having delegated most of his editorial responsibilities to sensible classical liberals like Charles Krauthammer, Michael Gerson, Marc Thiessen, Jennifer Rubin, Robert Kagan, Robert Samuelson, Kathleen Parker, and George Will. So today he thought he would try his hand at movie reviewing but, alas, he hasn’t grasped the differences between “drama” and “documentary”.

Dan Quayle. Teabaggers. The Washington Post op-ed page. A marriage made on April Fools’ Day?

Washington Post’s Fred Hiatt Loves Torture

By: Friday January 29, 2010 12:55 pm

Well, I don’t know that for a fact. But I do know that the publication of Marc Thiessen’s propagandistic claims about Pelosi on the WaPo’s editorial page says more about the WaPo’s editorial page than it does about Pelosi.
