Yeah, and I have some lovely beach front property in Siberia for sale too. So we are winning the war, our troops are successful on the battlefield, and the Democratic Congress has approval ratings lower than Rosie O’Donuts at a VFW. What ever is a defeatist journalist to do?

Simple. Cook the desertion rate to show how demoralized and beat down our troops are.

It’s a shame the actual numbers show the MSM to be the lying surrendercrats they are.

H/T LC Rurik for the link.

Ever determined to outdo the New York Slimes in finding new lows, Loseweek decides to pull the “Let’s Hire A Disgusting Assclown” gambit. Much like The Atlantic Monthly did when they fired Mark Steyn and hired on Andy “Gob-Smackingly Vile” Sullivan on as a senior editor, presumably to prove to anybody still reading that rag that they could be every bit as cluefucked as the rest of them.

So what did Loseweek do?

Why, they hired on Markotz Moulitsas Zunigass from “The Daily Kotz”, of course.

You know, he of the great compassion. He of the famous “who cares about Americans being murdered, burned, mutilated and strung up from bridge girders? Screw ‘em!” comment.

They defend their decision by saying:

“We have always sought to represent a diversity of views in Newsweek, and we think Markos will be a great part of that tradition,” said Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham. “He will give our readers in print and online a unique perspective.”

Well, you do have a point. Running around wishing death and mutilation on fellow Americans certainly is a “unique” perspective. At least we hope so.

Maybe you should change the name to “Screwsweek” now?

UPDATE: LC MikeM informs us that Screwsweek, apparently in an effort to balance things out, has hired Karl Rove as well. So let’s see: On one hand we have a successful political advisor who has helped elect and re-elect a President, a high level official who, to the best of our knowledge, hasn’t once expressed his indifference to the brutal murder of Americans and, on the other, we have a screwed up nutball with delusions of adequacy who has helped get nobody elected for office, as a matter of fact his “support” is now considered the “kiss of death” in political circles, an assclown whose support depends entirely on who happens to be writing the biggest checks at any given point in time, and a fetid fuckhead whose only comment to war crimes being committed against his own people is “screw ‘em.”

Yep, balances out perfectly, doesn’t it?

On the plus side, liberals’ heads are exploding all over the place because of the Rove hire, and the pharmaceutical industry is reporting record sales of Thorazine, so it’s not all bad.

We’ve long since established that there’s no point in questioning the MSM’s patriotism, seeing as how it’s more rare than a sober Kennedy, but boy do they ever blow gaskets right, left and center when somebody talks nasty about Her Royal Highness, the Cankled Hildebeest.

In this case it’s CNN’s Rick Sanchez going apoplectic over McCain. Why, you say? Did McCain say something nasty about one of the vilest abominations of nature to ever walk on its hind legs? No, he didn’t. Somebody in the same room with him called the anti-Christ a “bitch”, and Rick just cannot understand why McCain didn’t immediately have her arrested, tried and shot for lese majesté.

We say again: McCain didn’t say a damn thing. What’s got Rick’s anal hair all tangled up in knots is that he listened, listened to somebody using a bad word about the Anointed One and he didn’t even beat her up, burn her at the stake or preferably both!!!

Or something like that. It’s always hard to tell exactly what it is journaljizzmers are saying when talking about the Klintoon Krime Family. What, with their noses buried so deeply between Klintoon ass cheeks it’s a wonder they can even breathe without a snorkel.

10,000 Deadly Terrorist Attacks since 9/11.

So where’s the Dinosaur Media headlines?

LC Darth Bacon sends us this link about a Louisiana politician who apparently engaged in a bit of racist rhetoric:

HOUMA, La. — A state representative in a runoff election infuriated civil rights leaders after she ended a conversation with the mother of the NAACP’s local president by saying, “Talk to you later, Buckwheat.”

State Rep. Carla Blanchard Dartez, of Morgan City, acknowledged she made the remark during a Thursday night telephone conversation with Hazel Boykin to thank her for driving voters to the polls.

Yes, LCs and G.L.O.R.s, it’s time to play…

“Guess The Party Affiliation™”

Which party could this racist douchenozzle possibly belong to? The article doesn’t say and, in so doing, tells us exactly which party she belongs to. But, being devoted to accuracy in reporting and backing up our claims with facts (which pretty much guarantees that we’ll never work for the media), we checked out that new-fangled, highly advanced online gadget that impeccably credentialed journaljizzmers lorded over by umpty-leven layers of rigorously fact-checking editors can’t quite seem to figure out, bless their pointed little skulls, and found this.

YES! Our spotless prediction record remains spotless. We’re so proud. How many of you got it right?

Now imagine if the smart-mouthed suckweasel had belonged to The Other Party™ (no spoilers here). Do you think that party affiliation would’ve been scrupulously edited out prior to print then? You get three guesses and the first two don’t count.

What media bias?

Still more signs of continuing success in the “quagmire” of Iraq. Remember the “good ol’ days” when the MSM idiots loudly proclaimed that Al Quaeda had re-taken Ramadi? I somehow doubt that they will be as quick to trumpet this news.

This month last year I was embedded in Ramadi with 1st Battalion 6th Marines as they kicked in doors, fought insurgents, and began to clear the city block by block. It cost the lives of a lot of good Marines, most under age 25, but their efforts and sacrifice convinced a few local citizens that the Marines understood the difference between “Iraqi’s” and “Al-Quada” — and so the charismatic Sheik Sattar Abu Risha formed the Sons of Anbar, and began co-operating with LtCol William Jurney’s young Marines.

What a difference a year makes.

Back in the day I knew Lt. Col. Jurney. He was a young Lance Corporal at the time, getting ready to go to OCS. It seems that he has done quite well since then eh? Lt. Col Jurney and his aggressive tactics and keen understanding of the Iraqi culture, combined with an expert application of COIN tactics has turned the most violent city in Anbar province, if not all of Iraq, into a blossoming symbol of our eventual victory in this war.

There is more electricity in Ramadi than any other city in the country, normally including Baghdad. Schools have re-opened throughout the city; the two grade schools once guarded by Alpha Co. 1/6 today have 2,000+ students studying daily. They ran a 5K race through the center of the city in September, as a way of announcing to the world that “Ramadi has survived.”

I would say not only survived, but flourished. But how could this be? Give us more, O Emperor! »

The androgynous half of the Klintoon Krime Kartel, is dominating the news, but it’s largely due to the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy™ running negative segments on conservative talk radio. Riigggghhhhhtttttt.

Clinton Dominates Campaign News

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has dominated news coverage of the 2008 White House race, partly due to negative segments about her on conservative talk radio, according to a new study released on Monday.

Absolutely, and with all the hit pieces from those evil Rethuglican journalists like this one: Hillary’s Big Bash, I’m not surprised.

Clinton was the main subject of 17 percent of stories during the first five months of this year, almost twice as much coverage as the leading Republican candidate, Rudy Giuliani, who had 9 percent, the study found.

So the question really is, exactly who decides what stories go into the media maelstrom? What with all her appearances and puff-piece articles from the fawning journaljizmers, I would be surprised if she didn’t dominate election coverage.

The tone of coverage for the two during that period was about equal — roughly 37 percent of stories were negative while 27 percent were positive, according to the study by the Project for Excellence in Journalism and Harvard University’s Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy.

Now we’re getting somewhere. Hillary’s negative ratings, in other words, voters clearly committed against her is at about 46% putting her at the top of heap on both sides of the aisle. Here we have only slightly over a third of the articles about her that were characterized as ‘negative’, but from my own informal research the negative material is primarily from her Democratic rivals playing to the Loony Left. The Dead Stream Media studiously ignores talk-radio except when they can pile on and attack the host, not the story itself. See: Rush Phony Soldier Brouhaha.

The study was based on the election coverage of 48 different media outlets, covering online, radio, television, and newspapers. A story was categorized as having a positive or negative tone if two-thirds of its assertions were explicitly in one direction.

You know we can in fact, read out here in the blogospheric community. I’ve read literally hundreds of campaign coverage articles and I can say without reservation that very few stories are balanced anywhere near what you’re alleging here. Using “tone” is rather a subjective measure of an article and entirely based on the perception and ideology of the individual reader or listener.

Conservative radio show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh have criticized Clinton for years, from her days as the first lady in the 1990s to New York senator and now candidate for the November 2008 presidential election. The review found that 86 percent of their segments on her were negative.

No Shit Sherlock? And exactly how much did you spend on that study? Rush, Hannity, Beck and Levin have been hammering on her with solid, fact-based material. The Cankled One herself is responsible for the negative image as the Klan can’t help themselves from associating with criminals, hoodlums, foreign “donors” and generally ne’er do wells. The Clinton’s have never met a scam or Hsu they didn’t like.

Both Clinton and Giuliani consistently top national polls in the race for their party nomination. However, Clinton’s lead is narrower in the early primary voting states of New Hampshire and Iowa and Giuliani trails former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in those two states.

The candidate with the most negative coverage during the first five months of 2007 — almost 48 percent of stories — was Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain. His campaign was in turmoil then because of rapid spending and staff shake-ups.

Traitor McSwine, well and truly deserves each and every one of the negatives. It’s called talking out of your mouth and ass simultaneously, something even the unwashed masses can see.

Democratic hopeful Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois received the most positive coverage, 47 percent, during that period. He raised more campaign dollars than Clinton during the first half of the year but has not been able to close the gap in polls.

Yes, we were beginning to wonder when the media wonder-boy’s fresh-face would wear a bit thin. I suppose Madame LaFarge finally loosed her hounds on the MSM to bring down Dumbo, even though he was managing quite well on his own.

The study found that Democrats received more coverage than Republicans but said that was in part because Republicans with big money war chests announced their bids later than Democrats. It was also due to media attention on the possibility of the United States’ first female president, Clinton, and first black president, Obama.

Oh the poor destitute dems, Hillary raised $26 million in the first quarter of the year, with Romney at $23 million (a significant portion his own) and Rudy’s war chest for the quarter was only at $15 million. Yep it’s the big war-chest of the Republicans ensuring the Dems are getting the lion’s share of coverage.

Overall, the 2008 presidential election was second only in news coverage to the war in Iraq, according to the Project for Excellence in Journalism’s News Coverage Index.

We can think of a special Project for Excellence in Journalism, but it’s illegal in all 50 states.

“What political scientists used to call the ‘Invisible Primary’ of endorsements, fund-raising and organizational work, in other words, is invisible no more,” the study said.

Huh? The only thing that isn’t invisible anymore is the blatant, seething bias of academia and the LameStream Midiots™ We can always count of phony pollsters and ’studies’ to do their prevaricating best in proof of their agenda.

And it didn’t help one bit that Morgan Stanley unloaded their entire holding in the rag, nor that Merrill Lynch dumped a huge load as well.

So beat the rush, unload stocks in al-Jazeera on the Hudson today or you might end up holding nothing but a reasonable facsimile of the birdcage liner itself: A stack of worthless paper.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of fuckwads.

Thanks to LC Mope, who IM’ed us with this one last night. It looks like the al-Beeb is in for a rough ride.

Mr Thompson will tell the BBC Trust today that 2,000 employees — almost a tenth of the workforce — will be sacked in an attempt to find £2 billion in budget cuts.

The decision is controversial, with senior broadcasters such as John Humphrys and Jeremy Paxman criticising the management for planning to reduce news and current affairs while finding funds for less popular digital channels and internet sites.

Humphrys is still trying to figure out what this whole “Internet” thing is all about, and is expected to do so right after he fully groks electricity, hot and cold running water and who won WWI.

Both BBC managers and broadcasting unions said they felt industrial action was looming. One source predicted the corporation could face the worst strikes for a decade with major programmes likely to be taken off the air.

Leaving Hajis all over the world with only al-Jazeera to lean on for a sympathetic ear, at least for a while.

How positively dreadful.As he outlines his cost-cutting blueprint, Mr Thompson will appeal to the BBC Trust, which replaced the board of governors, to stand firm in the face of sustained strike action.

One senior BBC source admitted that a strike looked certain but that management would not back down in the face of union threats.

A senior broadcaster, who declined to be named, predicted a furious response from even the most moderate employees to the compulsory redundancies among the 23,000 work force.

“There will be a strike. That is definite,” he said. “Some big programmes will go off the air.

“It’s already been a shocker of a year with the rows over phone-in cheating and the Queen. Now they are going to sack 2,000 people. Management have a big fight on their hands.”

And unions, predictably, respond by threatening not to do the jobs that they’re afraid of losing. Good. That ought to save a few pennies as well.

Our only surprise is that we haven’t heard from Greta van Cistern yet (link via LC & IB DRJ):

MADISON, Wis. — The state’s top law enforcement official is drawing criticism for encouraging the public not to answer reporters’ questions about a north woods shooting by an off-duty sheriff’s deputy that left seven dead, including the gunman.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen last week said law enforcers would not answer questions about the case in the city where it took place, and he relayed a request that Crandon residents ignore reporters asking questions. He then left the podium without taking questions.

A week after the shooting, authorities have released little or no information on autopsy findings, certain 911 calls made during a manhunt and crime-scene evidence. The crime is one state’s biggest homicide cases, and in addition to being a deputy, the shooter was also a part-time officer on the Crandon police force.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said in an editorial Thursday that among the questions left unanswered is whether there was a problem with the police response, and whether psychological screening is needed for police recruits.

“The news media must give the survivors room to grieve in private,” the editorial said. “But they must also do their job — report on a matter of great importance to the state. Unfortunately, Van Hollen has signaled that he may make the media’s job harder.”

…and Heaven forbid that the Almighty “Deciders” in the MSM should have to actually work for their money? Doesn’t this guy know who they are? Hasn’t he heard of their Constitutionally secured right to set up cameras in your bedroom, kitchen and living room at the drop of a hat to secure their ratings and ad income?

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that there are questions regarding this case that are indeed within “public’s right to know”, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of course points out only these. When a government official, such as a deputy, freaks out and goes bonkers on a murdering spree, then there are legitimate questions about how on Earth he managed to fall through the cracks and end up a ticking time bomb in uniform. No argument there. We the People have entrusted the government with certain powers, and when those powers end up being abused, then we most certainly have a right to know just what led up to it and how to prevent it again. If we can’t be trusted with that knowledge, then we can’t trust them with the power, period.

But we all know that that’s not what the MSM is really talking about. That’s just the smokescreen they’re laying out to obscure their real agenda. Sure, they’d like to cover the official side of it too, but as we all know from reading the newspapers and, even more so, watching the dummy tube every night, what really gives them a hard-on for tragedy is setting up cameras, lights, carnie rides and concession stands in the front yards of the bereaved. Heck, if they could get away with it, they’d shove a web cam in the casket too. It’s the “human interest” angle, don’t ya know, and it’s good for ratings and circulation numbers which, again, is great for ad revenue. We are, sadly, a nation of rubberneckers. Anybody who has ever driven a car on the freeway will know, as anything from a flat squirrel over a car pulled over on the shoulder to a 6 car pile-up will cause a complete slowdown because of vultures hoping to catch a glimpse of mayhem, and the press knows it too.
