Late Night: Media Fail: David Gregory Edition

By: Thursday August 15, 2013 8:00 pm

Wonder of wonders, every once in a while, the Free Market gets off its nattily-clad ass and renders judgement where judgement is way overdue, and this appears to be one of those times. You see, NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the longest running political show on TV, has come in dead last in the ratings, reaching less than 1% of US households, an astonishingly pathetic number which includes, presumably, the crummy motels and Pine-Sol scented nursing homes with which such shows are most commonly associated.

Late Night: Condi’s Anthem, SCOTUS Edition

By: Thursday June 27, 2013 8:00 pm

Probably the most infuriating, if entirely predictable, outcome of the Supreme Court’s fusillade of 5-4′s this week was the MSM’s dewy-eyed credulity that accompanied it.  Now, I’m not implying that say, Adam Liptak of the NYT is a clueless ninth grader, but his reporting would have been considerably more respectable if he were.  Pretending to parse the hastily concocted legal reasoning du jour behind decisions that were already made twenty years ago by the Court’s right wing not only makes boring reading, but it insults the intelligence of anyone capable of tying one’s own shoes.

Even Ann Romney Can’t Escape the Tax Return Questions

By: Wednesday August 15, 2012 2:10 pm

If the Romney campaign thought the naming of a running mate would cause the media to move on from the issue of Romney’s tax returns, they were sadly mistaken. As long as Romney refuses to release more than what has only been a single incomplete tax return, the issue will hound him. It will be asked of him, his running mate, his surrogates and even his wife.

Military-Entertainment-Industrial Complex Reinforces Warrior Culture

By: Tuesday August 14, 2012 1:20 pm

The Pentagon has a well-documented history of seeking to influence entertainment that Hollywood produces so that negative portrayals of the United State military are not produced, but the NBC show “Stars Earn Stripes” takes the propagandistic efforts of the military-entertainment industrial complex to the next level.
