Been thinking about this one most of the day, Billy, and I must say,I can’t say I disagree with any of it. The Dinosaur media is sinking because of one major factor: Their bias. McClatchy is just one more in a series of such. Trust me, I won’t mourn at all. By the way, it […]

Next day, (Actually only a few hours later ) he remembers his freinds in Hamas who endorsed him, and says the future of the city should be negotiated. He calls it poor phrasing. I call it poor lying.

By way of Memeorandum, I note Sean Wilentz already casting about looking for somewhere beside Hillary Clinton, her past, her policies, her politics and her personality, to place the blame for her loss of the nomination: Unlike the Republicans, the Democrats in primary states choose their nominee on the basis of a convoluted system of […]

ABC’s Jen Parker at Political Punch: l just spoke with a Democratic Party official, who asked for anonymity so as to speak candidly, who said we in the media are all missing the point of this Democratic fight. The delegate math is difficult for Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, the official said. But it’s not a […]
