Things run into here and there:

  • David Burge, the Iowahawk, has an amusing bit on the Rathergate report that takes off on ’40s crime fiction. (You can also look at his Dan Rather/Wile E. Coyote piece if you’re familiar with the cartoon series.)
  • On the Rathergate report itself, PowerLine has a discussion that brings out the lengths to which the oh-so-boringly-establishment CBS review panel was willing to go to avoid reaching disruptive conclusions (like finding that supremely respectable and well-connected people and institutions that are typically on the right side of all issues and whose enemies aren’t so respectable were involved in actual fraud).
  • And leaving respectability far behind, Michelle Malkin gives us a sample of her hate mail. Most of it seems to be from Filipinos and other non-whites who are obsessed by race and insanely jealous of WASPs and blonds for being WASP and blond. Why do they think it’s so bad to look Filipino? A lot of the race stuff is mixed up with sex, and I can understand why support by American sailors etc. for the Filipino sex industry would make that something of a sore point, but not enough to explain what they say.


A former president of CBS News says the liberal bias there is too much for him, and he prefers to watch the news shows on other channels.

“If a tree falls and an expert doesn’t hear it, is there a sound?” Yes, the sweetest, most melodious sound in all creation: the sound of entropy being brought clanking, screeching, grinding to a halt.


Critics of the increasingly irrelevant mainstream media might appreciate the induction of Rathergate’s “Lucy Ramirez” into the honor roll of the famously mysterious, which can be found on my blog.
