MOLDY CONCEPTS, LIKE TRUTH & VIRTUE
Sometimes my blogging and/or writing gets hung up on the most trivial thing. Today it was what picture to use with a post on truth and virtue in journalism. I considered all sorts of pictures, plus one photoshop I had done of the Green Helmut Guy, but nothing seemed quite right. And seeing as how my day is seeping away, I decided to post this photo I took showing my 16-year-old cat Princess, who spends her mornings with me right next to the computer. That's Ann Coulter sitting atop the tower. It's nearly 1:30p.m. as I type this, and Princess has long since retired to her spot near the window for her afternoon siesta, not to be confused with her evening siesta nor her bedtime.
8 I began thinking about truth in journalism, or the lack thereof, when I read this ...
TRIANGULATE ON TERROR: The latest New York Times survey shows that a majority believes that Iraq it not part of the War on Terror. … Yes, the war in Iraq is connected to the War on Terror. Obviously, al Qaeda is behind many of the attacks in Iraq. Obviously, the streets of Baghdad are the alternative to Manhattan as the place in which the War on Terror is waged. But, equally obviously, it is political suicide to insist on drawing the connection.
8 The MSM has become so dishonest, at times downright corrupt, that their reporting is warped by their blatant hatred for Bush, as proven here: President Bush is suffering from Plame damage
8 Time to Boot Armitage from the Straight Talk Express: Armitage’s behavior warrants his shunning. John McCain can begin the process. He has placed Armitage on his list of policy advisers. He should ask him if the report is true, and if it is, pitch him off the Straight Talk Express. If he doesn’t, he begins his campaign for the nomination by signalling he respects self-serving above integrity and loyalty.
At least you'll get both sides here ...
8 Ankle Biting Pundits has a couple of good articles today on McCain. Pat Hynes, who works for McCain's campaign, has written So, Why McCain? and his blogging buddy Bulldog Pundit has written Why Conservatives Don’t Trust- And Won’t Support - John McCain In The Primaries.
And now for something a wee bit different ...
8 And Now, A Message From Your Candidate: Ms. Clinton believes that diplomacy and understanding will keep America safe. I am here to tell you that diplomacy and understanding are what got this country into its predicament in the first place.
You've probably heard about the mixup of the live mic from the ladies room bheard during Bush's speech. Doug Powers has the funniest write-up on it with ...
8 CNNs Whiz Kids Strike Again: Had this been Bill Clinton, we still wouldn’t have been sure if the zipper sound came from the reporter or the president.
I'm going to be on the radio!! on Friday. I’ll be the lead-in for Thomas Klocek: Professor Klocek a longtime DePaul instructor, was fired after expressing his free speech rights in an out-of-classroom discussion with some Muslim DePaul students.
Don't worry; I'll remind you on Friday :~)
