MSM meme — Elizabeth Warren is nicely bold while Ted Cruz is offensively aggressive

Posted by  ▪  February 15, 2013
Look at how dreamy Morning Joe treats Elizabeth Warren’s “grilling” of bank regulators (it hardly was a grilling, just a single inane gotcha question she repeated over and over for dramatic effect): Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Now contrast that with how Morning Joe treats Ted…

Prisoner X updates

Posted by  ▪  February 14, 2013
This is a follow up to yesterday’s post about Prisoner X. I’m not sure there is much greater clarification of why he was imprisoned, but it’s clear he was not secretly imprisoned, as the Australian Embassy was informed, he had a lawyer, and the courts were aware. But what he did is not…
