61 The Sleaziest Campaign of All?

When the political Right runs accurate (or mostly accurate) ads about opposing political candidates – about Willie Horton, or from the “Swift Boat veterans”— the dominant media narrative becomes how sleazy and unfair conservatives are. But as we are seeing this year, while vicious and utterly inaccurate ads from the political…

62 What Aaron Sorkin Gets Wrong About America

Aaron Sorkin is something like the poet laureate of American television (though, in the debased world of American popular culture, that’s less of an honorific than it sounds). Sorkin, who has also scripted such films as A Few Good Men, The American President, The Social Network and Moneyball, is responsible for two of the most celebrated TV series…

63 Obama, the “Intellectual” Law Professor Who Doesn’t Understand the Supreme Court

Earlier this week, anticipating the potential for the Supreme Court to gut his signature health care law, President Obama preemptively lashed out at the nation’s highest legal institution, saying, “I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary [sic] step of overturning a law that was…

64 Robert Bales, Trayvon Martin and the Cult of Involuntary Martyrdom

Over the past few weeks, two stories of untimely deaths – one foreign and one domestic – have dominated the media landscape. The first is the shocking tale of Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, who, seemingly at random, snuck away in the dead of night from his base in Afghanistan to wreak havoc among the local population, ultimately murdering…

65 Keller, NYT: Blinkered Obama Love

Bill Keller should get real.

Maybe it takes a failure to praise a failure, as the Keller defense of Obama…

66 The Lamestream Media’s Perpetual Bias Against Sarah Palin

You can tell a lot about someone based on the character of her enemies.  For conservatives, the clownish leftists obsessively deconstructing Sarah Palin’s every move and tweet serve as continual reminders that the Woman from Wasilla represents an incarnated assault on the liberal vision of “progress.”  That alone makes Palin…

67 In Praise of James O’Keefe

Some four decades ago, this writer and several of his journalist colleagues working for a now-forgotten magazine prepared to go to jail for refusing to reveal confidential sources regarding a criminal act about which we had published more than the authorities knew.  With a former Assistant U.S. Attorney as one of the magazine’s co-editors…

68 Today’s State-run Media Report, Courtesy of ABC/Obama News

Good Afternoon.  This is Charles Gibson reporting of, by and from the White House.  It’s been a really cool day here so far, and it’s going to get really cooler when we talk to President Obama about health care, later in the broadcast. We were going to open the broadcast with that, but today has been so really, really cool that…
