What a Surprise!

The people at Fox have misrepresented something!!


Bradley of Troy

I would like to take a moment to clearly explain to you under what circumstances I would go to see the new Brad Pitt flick, Troy:



I Call This Great News!

From The Independent in the UK:

He's back, and this time
Clinton is getting personal
about Bush

I don't wanna hear any crap about how horny he was.
This man is absolutely brilliant, intellectually strong and curious, understands and cares about people and the world. What a president should be.

We need to hear from him fight the ignorance and selfishness.

Iraqi Prisoner Abuse

In a nation rife with ignorance, we see the truth in satire.


Hey, Look Who's Back!

It's that Boykin dude, who is gonna tell all of us just exactly what God wants.


Can You Say
"Shameless Corporate Bullshitter?"

"Unfortunately, lost in the background of 'Koppelgate' are our brave troops who are fighting to preserve what we are practicing at home: open debate in a free society."
Mark Hyman, Sinclair's vice president for corporate affairs and chief editorialist, told viewers during a commentary last week.

There is no open debate when whores like Sinclair stifle it by forbiding it to be broadcast on their stations.

How stupid does this guy think we are?

Donald Rumsfeld Job Assistance Program

Assuming he'll be leaving his current position (probably within the next few weeks) and trying to wash some of the blood off his hands, the clever folks at ask for ideas on what work best suits him.

Amy is such a cute name.
I think I had a crush on a woman named Amy a couple of years ago.

I don't have a crush on Amy Goodman, but she is the host of a radio program that is especially important in our time of gutless corporate media, cowed jellyfish doing news release journalism and divisive, blowhard right-wing shills playing fast-and-loose with the facts.

The program is Democracy Now, obviously done on a shoestring budget, heard on the testy Pacifica Network stations, syndicated to others, and available live and archived on the Web. Select a stream type and listen to the latest show here.

All of the content is valuable, but the first five or six minutes (the newscast) are great. I listen every day. It will make you think. It will make you mad.

Unfortunately, Amy Goodman, despite pretty strong journalistic credentials, annoys the daylights out of me. I find her to be an absolute mess, a rich girl from Long Island who is so incredibly provincial that she actually mispronounced "Akron" one day last summer. Raised on Long Island, the daughter of a doctor, she seems equally clueless about lots of other places in America and how people live [and pronounce].

Purportedly having spent some time living in Israel years ago and being the grandaughter of a rabbi, she also seems, at best, shamefully naive about the Palestinian-Israeli situation, at worst, a self-hating Jew. (Yes, I support a Palestinian state. Yes, I think Ariel Sharon is a repugnant, maniacal warmonger. Yes, I want every last Israeli settlement closed. Yes, I think for too many Palestinians, the real goal is no Israel, not what so many of us dream of: peaceful co-existence in two separate states).

Goodman's out vigorously flogging her new book, 95% of which I probably agree with. I don't think I'll buy it, though.

It's a mixed review, I guess.

Listen to the show. It's worth the occasional gnashing of teeth.


Not That Big of a Deal

pRez does damage control on Arab TV.

Why I Don't Watch TV

Meet TV's latest shitheads.

Y'think the marriage will last five years???

Maybe they can consummate the marriage on TV. Maybe - with a lot of foreplay - they could somehow drag it out to another 13 episode reality show.

Maybe CBS could put cameras in their noses and follow them around all day and all night, every single day, and sell tons of ads.

Can you say "spineless?"
How 'bout "hypocitical greedy bastards?"


Crazy Pranksters in Iraq

The prominent radio personality and Republican shill, Rush Limbaugh, thinks that these atrocities we're hearing about at Abu Ghraib are just "pranks" and blowing some steam off. And hey, if that isn't absurd enough, also reason for some kind of horny thrill, because "babes" were involved.

How vile and stupid must this beast's comments get before people realize that he is what he is?
