    Good column by Concha.

    Katy Tur reaction shows a glimpse of how tolerant the fascist left is of anyone marching out of step.

      What always strikes me with these sorts of scenarios is how often it’s the left’s Chattering Class “Blue Check Mark” folks who get abusive and foul-mouthed in these scenarios.

      With Republicans, it’s the Gateway Pundit readers. With Dems it’s their best and brightest sounding like anger-management groupies who were raised by wolves.

    That relationship of the Obama’s w/Jarrett is absolutely weird. She can’t afford her own home? And, if you think I believe that the “office” we taxpayers are paying for will never be used for political purposes, well, you’re crazy!

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Everything about Obama is absolutely weird.

  • Larry Kelly

    NPR is “newsy” too, but just like CNN, that’s not the core mission these days.

  • Larry Kelly

    Shep: hard to claim FNC is in the tank for Trump with him on board. Or Krautheimer. Or Steve Hayes. Or Chris Wallace. Or Bret Baier. Or A.B. Stoddard. Or etc. Yeah, there is Hannity, but in a fair and balanced network there needs to be. You won’t find one on any other cable news channel.

      I don’t know about you, but as a grownup, I’m really tired of all these silly and adolescent superhero shows…

        The Z-MEN led by Professor Z have pretty much soured me on mutant journalism.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        It simply shows that no one in show business has had an original idea in years.

  • Cecelia

    Does it get anymore ludicrous than the media to portentously report anonymous sources saying that the Obama Administration, unelected DC careerists, and the intelligence community have worked to “preserve” evidence of Russian intervention in the election?

    What have they preserved? Classified information. Why have they preserved it? To inform the American people on the enormity of the intervention by Russians.

    How will they give classified info to the public? Via anonymous leaks. Where have they preserved it? Hillary’s homegrown server?…

    Why don’t they turn it over to the intelligence agencies already investigating it so there can be a full and comprehensive report to the American public? Not as dramatic and damaging.

    If there were rules that allowed impeachment of the media for being the worst sort of partisan stooges, there would be no one who could save them.

    Today’s Offtopic Worthwhile Fact
    Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease associated with a ten-year-shorter life expectancy. Rates of type 2 diabetes have increased markedly in parallel with obesity. As of 2013 there were approximately 368 million people diagnosed with the disease compared to around 30 million in 1985.

      My people are particularly susceptible to Type 2. I have it and I am 6’1″ and 170 pounds. I would say damn white man’s diet, but it’s more likely genetics. When I was stationed at Williams AFB, AZ, I did see some very obese indians. Many were diabetics. There, you may be looking at a combination of diet and genetics.

      Disclaimer – I am not a doctor, but did play doctor as a kid.

      • Larry Kelly

        ha ha doc. What you say matches what i’ve read.

      • gcblues

        type 2 has the most genetic connection, however at least you were warned with the knowledge. People who are candidates can go on a regimen of Metformin 500mgs 2x day and quit eating white rice, white bread and other simple carbs and beat the DNA predilection. White rice. The number one cause of diabetes and millions of skinny Asians have it.

      Ah ha…a link to the Independent Journal Review.

      I noticed because this is the well traveled Erin McPike’s new home…even though she did not write this particular article.

      I really like her balanced commentary on Media Buzz…but the young 33-year-old does get around…with 5 or 6 employers already in her young career.

      And I thought software engineers were job hoppers. 🙂

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      You can always count on the Dems to come up with a classy comment.
