Wall Street Journal Editor Says His Newspaper Won't Call Donald Trump's Lies 'Lies'
Huffington Post - about 2 months
WASHINGTON ― Wall Street Journal Editor-in-Chief Gerard Baker said his newspaper would not refer to false statements from the Trump administration as “lies,” because doing so would ascribe a “moral intent” to the statements. Baker appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday, where he described some of President-elect Donald Trump’s falsehoods as “questionable” and “challengeable.” But, he said, “I’d be careful about using the word ‘lie.’ ‘Lie’ implies much more than just saying something that’s false. It implies a deliberate intent to mislead.” He said reporters should state the facts, but leave classifying them to readers, citing the example of Trump’s claim that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey were celebrating on 9/11 (which is false). “I think it’s then up to the reader to make up their own mind to say, ‘This is what Donald Trump says. This is what a reliable, trustworthy news organization reports. And you know what? I don’t think that’s true.’” The New York Times edi ...

The Swinging Dick Election Of 2016
Huffington Post - 4 months
It all began with Donald Trump sizing up his own swinging dick through the assessment of his most beautiful, yet tiny, hands. That's when Swinging Dicks took control of this election cycle, which has become a full-scale assault on women everywhere. So you'll have to excuse me if what I'm writing seems... dirty. America is choking on swinging dicks. Trump was exposed on an "Access Hollywood" tape admitting that "grabbing them by the pussy" is his preferred handshake for women. That was topped when Trump claimed to have never done anything to women because he respects them so much. The Lie That Would Not Stand has caused Trump's chances of being president to vanish and it's because conservative women don't want this swinging dick in the White House. The latest accusations of Trump's out of control swinging dick has Donald once again caught on tape sexually harassing a woman. Then there is Anthony Weiner, a proud member of The Swinging Dick Club who has sullied the sto ...

Lou Dobbs' Rant About 'Mormon Mafia' Becomes Twitter's Best New Hashtag
Huffington Post - 4 months
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs recently fired off an angry tweet about Evan McMullin, the third-party conservative running neck-and-neck with GOP nominee Donald Trump in Utah.  McMullin’s strong showing is threatening to hand the state to Democrat Hillary Clinton, or he could win the state’s six electoral votes himself ― a notion that has Trump supporters such as Dobbs steamed enough to blame a “Mormon Mafia.” Look Deeper, He's nothing but a Globalist, Romney and Mormon Mafia Tool #MAGA #AmericaFirst #TrumpPence16 #TrumpTrain #Dobbs https://t.co/WfjYzck2jt — Lou Dobbs (@LouDobbs) October 23, 2016 Although the tweet was published over the weekend, it was widely retweeted late Wednesday and led to the birth of a new hashtag: #MormonMafia.  Here’s a sampling:  Not only is there a #MormonMafia, they have biker gangs running the streets pic.twitter.com/oaTTO7uQpa — Philip Moon (@Philip_R_Moon) October 27, 2016 "Funny like a clown?

Does Facebook Make You Narrow-Minded?
Huffington Post - 9 months
That's the thrust of Frank Bruni's thoughtful column in the New York Times where he references social psychologists to assert that we're turning into "culturally and ideologically inflexible tribes." By bookmarking given blogs and personalizing social-media feeds, we customize the news we consume and the political beliefs we're exposed to as never before. And this colors our days, or rather bleeds them of color, reducing them to a single hue. We construct precisely contoured echo chambers of affirmation that turn conviction into zeal, passion into fury, disagreements with the other side into the demonization of it. Yes, we've all seen that kind of Facebook free-for-all, most recently between the Sanders and Clinton camps--though it can be about anything and happen within minutes. But before Facebook was so popular, how many people who use it ever bothered to read editorials expressing political opinions opposite of their own? How many Fox News watchers, for instance, spe ...

Republicans Do Not Want to "Fix Our Politics"
Huffington Post - about 1 year
After facing many years of stringent obstructionism and historically unprecedented levels of disrespect from congressional Republicans, President Obama was relatively charitable in his final State of the Union address while discussing the hyper-partisan politics that long ago took over Washington. The president called on his audience to "fix our politics" by restoring "basic bonds of trust between... citizens" -- something that was seemingly lost when right-wingers began accusing the President of being a closet-Muslim who was born in Kenya. He continued: "[Democracy] doesn't work if we think the people who disagree with us are all motivated by malice, or that our political opponents are unpatriotic. Democracy grinds to a halt without a willingness to compromise; or when even basic facts are contested, and we listen only to those who agree with us... It's one of the few regrets of my presidency - that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better... ...

Richard (RJ) Eskow: Obamacare and the Right-Wing Fight for Indentured Servitude
The Huffington Post - about 3 years
As Media Matters and other outlets noted last week, right-wing commentators drastically misrepresented a CBO report's findings about the Affordable Care Act. Fox News, Washington Post conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, and many other conservative pundits misstated the report's optimistic conclusion -- that the equivalent of up to 2.5 million workers would eventually leave the workforce -- as instead claiming that 2.5 million jobs would be lost as a result of the law But if these conservatives "misread" the report, as the Media Matters headline puts it, it was a telling error. While the ACA is flawed in some respects, the CBO report pointed to one of its strongest features: by at least partially uncoupling health care coverage from employment, it is unfettering workers from jobs they would prefer to leave. (The 2.5 million figure was also misinterpreted; the CBO discussed full-time equivalent workers, since some people will stay in the workforce but work fewer hours.) W ...

Hillary and Her Critics -- Here We Go Again
Huffington Post - about 3 years
It seems the pundits and polls in our town and on cable TV looking to fill the time can't get over the apparently irresistible temptation to blame Hillary Clinton for ... well, just about everything. Recent press reports quoted anonymous Democrats expressing concerns that Clinton is making the "same mistakes" as she allegedly did in her 2008 presidential campaign. Imagine she is the -- dare I use the expression? -- "the front-runner" in all the polls, among Democrats for the nomination, among all voters for the general election. How could she? Why dare she? It's all her fault! Why ... sputter... why doesn't she just order the pollsters to stop taking polls? Or her supporters to stop answering? I mean, it's just 33 months from Election Day 2016! Where is her platform? Her new ideas? Her vision for America? Why is she silent? For months, critics of the former first lady have blamed her for remaining silent while President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have attempted ...

ENDA, Language and Rachel Maddow
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Last week the United States Senate passed ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, by a vote of 64-32, with 10 Republicans voting "aye." With the first part of the lobbying campaign now over and the more challenging House effort upon us, one of the more important consequences of the effort has already come to fruition. One benefit of working on such legislation is the educational impact on the country. The media covered various aspects of the effort, ramping up last week when the bill appeared on the floor for multiple votes. Passing laws has many purposes, but a major one with civil rights laws is the national megaphone provided to the civil rights community. We have been able to introduce ourselves to many, and while that holds for the entire LGBT community, it is particularly true for the trans population. Far more Americans know a gay person than know a trans one, and this bill was a wonderful vehicle for an educational effort. The hope was that our work would be amplified by ...

Always and Everywhere: The <em>New York Times </em>and the Enduring 'Threat' of Isolationism
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com The abiding defect of U.S. foreign policy? It’s isolationism, my friend. Purporting to steer clear of war, isolationism fosters it. Isolationism impedes the spread of democracy. It inhibits trade and therefore prosperity. It allows evildoers to get away with murder. Isolationists prevent the United States from accomplishing its providentially assigned global mission. Wean the American people from their persistent inclination to look inward and who knows what wonders our leaders will accomplish. The United States has been at war for well over a decade now, with U.S. attacks and excursions in distant lands having become as commonplace as floods and forest fires. Yet during the recent debate over Syria, the absence of popular enthusiasm for opening up another active front evoked expressions of concern in Washington that Americans were once more turning their backs on the world. As he was proclaiming the imperative of punishing the government of Basha ...

The Way We Live Today: From Tweet to Meme in 14 Hours
Mother Jones - over 3 years
The political branch of the intertubes today has been consumed by the question of whether the media is hopelessly biased because it treated Wendy Davis' abortion filibuster more sympathetically than Ted Cruz's kinda-buster on Obamacare. The whole fuss is so mind-crushingly inane that it's enough to make one fear for the future of the human race, but still I'm curious: where did this meme get its start? It apparently went mainstream in a Dylan Byers column posted today at 10:00 am. Dave Weigel says the meme was "codified" in a Tim Carney column posted a few minutes earlier at 9:44 am. Tom Kludt of TPM noted the invention of the meme an hour before that, at 8:57 am. He's got tweets from Erick Erickson and Byron York from even earlier in the morning, and one from Richard Grenell late last night. But the earliest mention is from Laura Ingraham, who tweeted about this an hour before Grenell, at 8:20 pm last night. But wait! Ingraham was retweeting Chad Seiter, who was responding to ...

TV SoundOff: Sunday Talking Heads

Hello everyone, and let me once again welcome you to another edition of your Sunday Morning Liveblog, starring John Kerry, Full Ginsburging about Syria, which is today's central topic of gum flapping. My name is Jason. Should you have been living your lives yesterday, as normal human Americans, you might have missed the recent twist in our "Who's Up For Doing Something That Will Not Materially Contribute Anything But Will Look Cool Because ESSPLOSIONS ZOOM BOOM AWESOME HAVING A WAR HARDON PAYOFF, Etc." story. And the twist is, after careful consideration, President Barack Obama is going to see what the most gutless two bodies in the history of organized democracy -- The U.S. House Of Representatives and the U.S. Senate -- has to say about going to "war" in Syria. And that's awesome, because it technically is their effing job to decide that stuff, a practice we've gotten away from, and which has greatly benefitted Congress, who rarely have to nut up and do anything anymo ...

Doug Bandow: Violating the Law to Subsidize Egypt's Coup: Bipartisan Foolishness in Washington
Huffington Post - over 3 years
U.S. policy in Egypt has been a disaster. For decades Washington backed rule by an authoritarian dictatorship that persecuted religious minorities and socialized the economy. Now the short-lived democratic revolution has been replaced by military rule with a meaningless civilian veneer. Washington should cut off foreign aid and disengage. Instead, the Obama administration has embraced putative dictatorship, refusing to characterize the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi as a coup. If only George Orwell was alive today. The military worked with the opposition to encourage demonstrations threatening public chaos. The military arrested the president, top officials, and high-level members of his party and movement. The military leveled fantastic criminal charges against the president and his supporters. The military closed down allied television stations and arrested journalists. The military appointed dictatorial retreads as interim president and other high officia ...

Eric Boehlert: Move Over Climate Deniers, Here Come Racism Deniers
Huffington Post - over 3 years
So much for having a national conversation about race. Conservative commentators claimed they'd welcome an honest discussion about the thorny issue in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. But within moments last week of President Obama offering up his personal reflection about the trial and how the killing of Trayvon Martin had been viewed within the African-American community, right-wing voices responded with almost feral anger and resentment. Among those most incensed by Obama's thoughtful reflections was Jennifer Rubin, who writes for the Washington Post. She called Obama's comments "disgusting." Furious at America's first black president for discussing the topic of race following a passionate trial verdict (he's "not a good person," Rubin stressed), the columnist lashed out at Obama for addressing a problem she claimed is no longer even relevant to the American experience. Lamenting that Obama's won't allow people "get out of this racial archaeology," Rubin c ...

Palin's Nonsensical Attack On Immigration Reform
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Opponents to immigration reform have embraced a new talking point. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joined the debate over the Senate-approved comprehensive immigration reform bill this weekend, saying in a Coulter-esque statement posted to Facebook that a vote for the “amnesty bill” insults Latinos. “You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill,” Palin’s statement reads, adding: “You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of Law.” Anyone familiar with polling of Latino voters knows this statement is inaccurate. Polls routinely find that an overwhelming majority of Hispanic voters support offering a pathway to citizenship to the undocumented. A Fox News Latino poll released in March of last year found some 85 percent of Latino voters favored a pathway to citizenship, while a Wall Street Journal-NBC poll from April put the figure at 82 percent. In the words of Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post’s Face Checker ...
