In Blogland

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.

  1. Even a former head of CBS News can’t stand Dan Rather’s leftism
    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.

  2. Rathergate report
    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.
