A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Physician, heal thyself: The New York Times TV Watch column by Alessandra Stanley is unintentionally hilarious.


[T]here is the fog of war and then there is the fog of cable.

Over the last few weeks, 24-hour news networks have done little to find out what John Kerry did in Vietnam, but they have provided a different kind of public service: their examination of his war record in Vietnam illustrates once again just how perfunctory and confusing cable news coverage can be. Facts, half-truths and passionately tendentious opinions get tumbled together on screen like laundry in an industrial dryer - without the softeners of fact-checking or reflection.


Wow, what a perfect description of the Times own article of less than a week ago. Fact-checking? If cable even checked one fact, it was much more than the Times did.

*UPDATE* I couldn't get past the first paragraph, but the Captain did, and discovers an embarrassing error.
