Rightwing Ponzi Group Running Radio Ad Over & Over Again

Sep
09

Public Notice, the rightwing ponzi group reported by TBM back in March (see orginal TPM post) is running its 20-30 second piece of mis-information over and over again on the CBS radio affiliate in Chicago, WBBM.

I don't know if they're running it on any other station in the Chicagoland area but it's sure driving me nuts.

Cynicism is Cheap : Charles Osgood Edition

Dec
19

facts_i_ought_to_know.png

Charles Osgood indulges in a bit of cheap cynicism in a report on an overdue library book being returned to the New Bedford Public Library after 99 years.

The book is called, "Facts I Ought to Know About the Government of My Country" (Wm H. Bartlett, 1897) and Osgood largely sticks to the facts until this final cheap shot,

Here's a question, though: What would a book to tell you how the U.S. Government works, published 115 years ago, tell you about how the U.S. Government works today? Not very much, I'm afraid...

Actually the book can tell you a lot about how the U.S. Government works today -- had Osgood bothered to think about it or, heaven forbid, even look it up.

Is Fox Right-wing?

Oct
20

I'm not quite sure why media people like Howard Kurtz are shocked, shocked that members of the Obama Administration are calling out Fox News.

Members of the Obama Administration are observing a wise rule of survival in the jungle of hard-ball politics, namely, 'Don't ignore your opponents -- Define them'.

In any case, what they're doing is only stating the obvious. Does anyone dispute the fact that Fox News is a rightwing propaganda network?
