“Far” right, far left — AND FAR WRONG !

That reanimated fossil Rob Christensen is at it again in The N&O newsroom.  I still don’t understand WHY people think he is such a political Svengali.  He doesn’t have a clue.  Here he is on last Tuesday’s vote: North Carolina’s primary on Tuesday reflected two…

#ncpol: A little Rob-on-Rob love

Rob “RielleWho” Christensen is exactly what Rush means when he speaks of “the driveby media.”   For decades, he’s covered up and apologized for the likes of Jim Hunt and John Edwards while tying himself up in knots to screw conservatives at every turn.  Republican primary…

NC drivebys covering up sexual misconduct? (*YA DON’T SAY!!!*)

Yessirree.  North Carolina’s, um, “favorite” geriatric driveby — rumored to be the inspiration for the title character in “Weekend at Bernie’s”  (filmed on NC’s Bald Head Island, Figure 8 island, Kure Beach,and Wrighsville Beach, for what it’s worth) — is wowing us again with a political…

RobC: Budget “cuts” (NOT Gene Nichol, fake classes, or Queer Studies degrees) hurting UNC’s rep

Yes.  The “Bernie” of our state’s gasping-for-that-last-breath driveby media is still peddling that nonsense that spending more money equals excellence.  (That gets shot down ALL THE TIME.  Texas Gov. John Connolly spent $11 million bucks – a LOT more than anybody else — his 1980 campaign…

#ncpol: Keep party affiliation a secret — JUST LIKE John Edwards’s girlfriend.

That’s the advice that allegedly-still-living-and-breathing crackerjack N&O columnist Rob Christensen is giving legislators in Raleigh:  During the middle of the last century, there was a reform effort in North Carolina to depoliticize municipal government, removing power from the old ward bosses and making city government…

#ncpol Dazed & Confused & Lazy: Old Man Rob takes on the NC-02 race

For some reason, Rob Christensen is heralded as some wise oracle of North Carolina politics.  I guess it’s because he’s been around so long.  But does hanging around for a long time qualify you as great?  If so, that 20 year old senior at the…

#ncpol: A fool and his newspaper column.

Thank goodness McClatchy continues to prop up that geriatric relic RobRielleWho Christensen.  If they didn’t, where else would we find such a glaring, prominent example of lazy reporting, and contempt for his readers and everything capitalist and American?  RobRielleWho’s latest screed is comparing the current…

Rob Christensen: Still making a mess after ALL THESE YEARS.

His employer’s stock is hovering around “junk” territory.   (A lot of folks have been laid off in McClatchy newsrooms.  But ROB is STILL THERE.)  Rob has something in common with Unvision’s Jorge Ramos.  He, like Jorge, has been tossed out of a media event…

Call a lefty. Transcribe. Disseminate. Repeat. (Call a lefty. Transcribe …. )

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It…

Farewell to the shih-tzu

Something’s missing.  There is a real void on Raleigh’s Jones and McDowell Streets.  Apparently, John Drescher’s pet shih-tzu has run off to Denver, CO for greener pastures. Mr. Frank’s absence has had a clear effect on the product of McClatchy’s Raleigh subsidiary.  Some of WRAL…
