New York Times Managing Editor Dean Baquet said today he doesn't see "anything significantly new" in yesterday's congressional hearings on Libya, while both he and the paper's executive editor Jill Abramson suggested the hearings were politicized and therefore not worthy of front-page coverage. Baquet and Abramson's remarks come in response to criticism from the paper's own public editor, Margaret Sullivan, who objected to the editors decision not run its story about the hearings on today's front page. Both the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal gave yesterday's hearings
Maybe. as far as democrats being dishonest, cheating, stealing, murdering, sidestepping, evading, being confused, lying, covering up, clamming up, making false accusations, and calling everybody a racist.
The Gray Lady is in her death throes. It is not a pleasant spectacle - and all the signs are that it will get worse and worse until she gives up the ghost. Those in charge of her are unworthy of her. They will continue to damage her credibility and sully the remains of her reputation, all in the service of a sordid partisanship that is blatantly obvious to everyone but themselves.
This article is a good example of why the NYTs is insignificant. There have been 4 hours of hearings, much of it taken by Cummings irrelevant comments, and the Mass. rep talking about everything but Libya.
When I realized last week that the administration was actually going to take the tack of blaming Romney/Ryan and ignoring the the attack itself (after sticking to the lame line of a cleric-approved video nobody saw long after it had reached its stale date) and stick with the dead bodies are just "bumps in the road" schtick, I wondered if the American people would stand for it.
As if the rape, the murders and the multiply ignored requests for security and the regimes subsequent lies weren't "significant" enough? Oh, I forgot, the NYT didn't think they were significant enough. Neither, apparently, does Obama. We'll see if the public is awake enough to care.
I watched that entire hearing and was sick afterwards. Didn't think anything could make me sicker until yesterday. Even after the slaughter which our government watched real time on a video camera (and the video is "unavailable" to the congress)and then re-played in my head, the casual way obama treated this, the way the people around him are treating it, this is a horror show and has to stop on November 6, 2012.
According to Cutter, Americans could have cared less about the murder of 4 embassy employees until Romney/Ryan brought it up. Once Barry vacates the WH kicking and screaming and trashing the place, Cutter will probably go to work at the NY Slimes at some outlandish salary which hopefully will bankrupt this Pravda so-called newspaper once and for all.
When the New York Times announces that the hottest story out there is not newsworthy and, therefore, not worth their time ..... you KNOW the Obama administration has a problem. A huge, gigantic problem.
The video scenario was dreamed up by White House Staff/Campaign. I am sure they did a search on You Tube. There are ways to search You Tube archives to see if there are any searches for the videos by govt ie white house addresses or staff accounts?
FORGET THE NYTIMES, THIS is the day to go to BUSINESS INSIDER and read the fascinating article on Matt Drudge and the newly evaluated multi million dollar article on THE DRUDGE REPORT. Matt's mini staff (3) equals NYSlime's 1200 droids in spectacular results of millions of readers per day, and absolutely incredible numbers. Read it, you'll love it and everything that Drudge has done to innovate and transform the internet to the key to unedited truth.
A cancer patient, who publicly discussed the cancellation of his insurance under ObamaCare, now says he has been informed by the Internal Revenue Service that he is going to be audited. Bill Elliot appeared on Fox News on November 7th to discuss the cancellation of his insurance. He claims he was told that his cancer was considered “beyond the catastrophic previous condition” and his plan was being canceled because of ObamaCare regulations. Elliot, who has Stage 4 cancer, informed viewers he wasn’t going to pay the $1,500 a month for the new plan being offered, preferring not to burden his
A pioneering study has shown for the first time that the brains of men and women are wired up differently which could explain some of the stereotypical differences in male and female behaviour, scientists have said. Researchers found that many of the connections in a typical male brain run between the front and the back of the same side of the brain, whereas in women the connections are more likely to run from side to side between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. This difference in the way the nerve connections in the brain are “hardwired” occurs during
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
Shortly before receiving the medal of freedom from President Obama, Oprah Winfrey gave an interview to the BBC in which she seemed to chalk up much of the opposition to the president to racism: "I think there's a level of disrespect for the office that occurs ... because he's African American," she said. Her claim reminded me of the times when, as a child of the '70s, my father would ask an odd question about my friends, "What is he?" "Huh?" I'd ask. "You know, what is he — Italian? German? Lebanese? What is he?" my father replied. Colorblind eyes - I had no idea what my friends' ethnic origins were.
While just eight days of legislative business remain before lawmakers are expected to leave Washington for the winter holidays, House Speaker John Boehner maintained that immigration reform still has a spot in his majority’s agenda next year, but he does not intend to move on comprehensive legislation. (Snip)“Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters during a news conference at the Capitol Thursday. “I believe that Congress needs to deal with this issue. Our committees are continuing to do their work. There are a lot of private conversations that are underway to try to figure out, how do
Phoebe Connolly, who was punched in the face and laughed at by a group of teenagers playing the random and sometimes fatal “Knockout” game in my own obscenely terrible neighborhood of Columbia Heights in Washington, D.C., appeared with Greta (snip)“I ultimately, I’ve moved past it and I really have no hard feelings about what has happened. And I just see it as another reason why we need to better support our youth with activities and youth programs, which is actually what I do for work, and it’s great to see teenagers do incredible things when they’re supported and empowered,” “
WASHINGTON — Many doctors are disturbed that they’ll be paid less – often a lot less – to care for the millions of patients who are projected to buy coverage through the health law’s new insurance marketplaces. Some have complained to medical associations – including those in Texas, California, Georgia, Connecticut and New York – saying the discounted rates could lead to a two-tiered system in which fewer doctors participate, perhaps making it harder for consumers to get the care they need. “As it is, there is a shortage of primary care physicians in the country, and they don’t have
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
