CS Monitor Writer Dismisses 'Operation Chaos' Based on Outdated Data

April 2nd, 2008 9:59 AM
I have to give the Christian Science Monitor credit for at least discussing Rush Limbaugh's Operation Chaos which is his plan for Republicans to register as Democrats in order to vote for Hillary Clinton so as to cause yet more disorder in the Democrat party. One can search in vain in Google News for dreaded term "Operation Chaos," but with the exception of the Christian Science Monitor…

March 6th, 2008 7:50 PM
You know, it's one thing when some government employee sends you an e-mail message claiming that global warming will cause greater snowfall on the planet.However, it's really something else altogether when a major American newspaper would actually publish an article with the headline:Global Warming Not Always to Blame for Extreme WintersNo, this wasn't the National Enquirer, or The Star. This was…

Mickey Kaus Refutes Clinton's Obama-Jackson Comparison

January 27th, 2008 11:02 AM
In the wake of Hillary Clinton's 2-1 thrashing in South Carolina at the hands of the politician I typically refer to as BOOHOO (Barack O-bomba Overseas Hussein “Obambi” Obama), the spin from Mrs. Clinton's husband is that it has no more significance than Jesse Jackson's Palmetto State victories in 1984 and 1988.Kausfiles blogger Mickey Kaus shows that the claim doesn't stand up to scrutiny (links…

Local Journalist Claims Media Got The ‘Jena 6’ Story Totally Wrong

October 24th, 2007 11:15 AM
It's not every day you read an article in a major newspaper stating unequivocally that media radically misreported a current event that made national headlines, especially one with a racial component. However, that's exactly what happened Wednesday when the Christian Science Monitor published an article written by the assistant editor of the Jena Times about how press outlets "got most of…

Unusual Winds Caused Arctic Ice Melts, Not Global Warming

October 5th, 2007 10:36 AM
Assume for a moment that a new study by NASA proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that manmade global warming was indeed responsible for the recent ice melts in the Arctic. Think media would have reported it? In reality, that's a bit of a trick question, for in the past several weeks, television newscasts, papers, and magazines have been filled with hysterical assertions about decreasing Arctic ice…

Polar Bear Baby Boom Occurring in Eastern Arctic, Will Media Notice

May 11th, 2007 2:42 PM
This one is really too funny, folks, and definitely requires all potables, combustibles, and sharp objects be properly stowed (grateful and humorous h/t to NBer dscott).Despite all the carping and whining by folks like soon-to-be-Dr. Al Gore and his not so merry band of sycophant devotees about global warming killing polar bears, there is actually a baby boom occurring in this species in Canada’s…

The Economy: Bush and GOP Deserve Credit Until Sept

November 20th, 2006 2:25 PM
Mark Trumbull of The Christian Science Monitor has noticed something I mentioned last week, but had to try to get a dig in while doing it (bold is mine): American paychecks are rising again at a pace not seen since the 1990s. The pay increase amounts to 4 percent on average over the past 12 months, and it comes at a very helpful time for millions of households. For three years, pay increases…
