N&O launching a political campaign fact check blog. (No, seriously.)

The announcement by The Ol’ Reliable that they are getting into the fact-check business is being met with some dismay, derision, and suspicion, as you can infer from the comments below the story. Yep. The lefties are all correct, and the folks on the right…

Frackin’ & Marryin’ : Media’s omissions help push leftist agenda

You could call it sloppy, lazy reporting. You could call it conveniently leaving out inconvenient facts in order to spin a story the way you want it to go.  But a lot of North Carolina media — especially locally — seem to be giving us…

Elitist DC pundits: Voters are STUPID

        John Harris left The Washington Post  and co-founded the web-only news outlet Politico.com some years back.  I guess The Post gig didn’t let him show off  en0ugh of his true, asinine, arrogant leftist self: Last night on Politico’s live-stream election show,…

    Conservatives are weary of hearing media spin about how all of their heroes are dumb.  In the REAL WORLD, Ronald Reagan is credited with bringing radical, positive change to The United States and the world.  Reagan was dubbed  “The Great Communicator” for his…

The selective coverage of politician “sins”

      Rob Christensen, senior political writer and resident newsroom wonderboy at The N&O, wants us to believe that today’s allegedly mainstream media (AMSM) is MUCH tougher on political candidates than the scribes of the past.  He’s partially right.  Today’s  AMSM is a lot…

GOP legislators seek business POV; Dems & Media cry FOUL

Boy, it really turns my world upside down to see something published by The N&O staff complaining about not including both sides of a story. Until recently, I thought “fracking” was only an epithet used by characters on Battlestar Galactica.  (Sorry, my geek is showing.) …

Hawaii 6-0: Hawaii is in Asia?

  The media, Hollywood, and a lot of university faculty have raved since 2008 about what a brilliant president we have.  BarryO told us that he had visited 57 states (and had one more to go), and the media gave him a pass. Meanwhile, George…

Lessons for us all from yesterday’s elections in Raleigh

One good way to really stoke the wrath of Leftists is to separate them from the government teat. A good example of this is the two-year drama surrounding the Wake County school board.  Since the moment the last vote was counted in 2009, and a…

Breaking News: The N&O has NO shame!

  Okay.  All evidence shows that the N&O newsroom worked hand-in-hand with the governor’s office to kill the uproar over Boss Bev’s ‘suspend the elections’ speech in Cary.  At first we got told that the N&O reporter who broke the story didn’t understand that the…
