Three’s a Trend!

Three law enforcement officers (from three different police departments) involved in the Ferguson events have been suspended because of their extremely racist words and actions. How extreme? Here are some examples, courtesy of New York magazine: St. Louis County officer Dan Page appears in a video posted to YouTube of an hour long speech he […]

The Enemy

© Jon Kudelka Can you tell if this comic is set in Fallujah or Ferguson? Believe it or not, this comic is actually from 2004, and was depicting a war zone. I guess we brought the war home.

The Angry Echo Chamber

Stephen Colbert is brilliant, just brilliant: Yes, that’s twice this week I’ve done postings about Sarah Palin. But I have an explanation: with all the mess and bad news both internationally and domestically, we need some comic relief.

What’s Wrong with American Business

You can’t get a much better example of why American business sucks. Forbes magazine just published an article “5 Reasons Why You Should Admire Comcast“. If I didn’t know better, I would think it was satire, but it isn’t. First, the article is so full of misinformation it isn’t even funny. Like one of their […]

Return of the Jedi

Obama in a speech this week, makes a really good case against “false equivalences” from the media. I couldn’t have said it better myself! You’ll hear if you watch the nightly news or you read the newspapers that, well, there’s gridlock, Congress is broken, approval ratings for Congress are terrible. And there’s a tendency to […]

Colbert Unplugged

CBS has announced that Stephen Colbert will be replacing David Letterman on the Late Show. What makes this interesting is that Colbert will drop his faux-conservative persona and will be himself. Or as Colbert put it “I won’t be doing the new show in character, so we’ll all get to find out how much of […]

Proper Media Training

© Matt Bors Just in case you don’t get it, this comic is making fun of CNN and their pitiful coverage of the missing flight in SE Asia. Or as New York magazine put it “CNN Gives Up, Wonders About Supernatural Conspiracy Theories for Flight 370 Disappearance“: There’s only so much “breaking news.” After more […]

Model Roles or Role Models

© Keith Knight What’s the problem with movie roles being played by someone of a different race? I mean, did anyone object when Lieutenant Starbuck was morphed into a very hot woman on the BSG sequel? Or when the Klingons physically morphed on Star Trek into a different species? Get over yourself. If you don’t […]

Bad Headlines

The headline for the article on NBC News “Pot Fuels Surge in Drugged Driving Deaths” is accompanied by a disturbing photo of a crumpled car destroyed in an accident. The article itself says that new research supports the claim that legal marijuana is making the problem of drugged driving worse, and tells stories of people […]

Old News, Again

Tuesday, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report on Obamacare and conservatives immediately jumped on it, saying that it proves that the ACA will damage the economy by destroying jobs. Even the “liberal” Washington Post fell for it, running an article with a headline that incorrectly stated that the CBO estimated that the […]

OMG! Even local TV news is completely scripted nationally

If you don’t think the media is tightly controlled, think again.

I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

© John Backderf And just why are we arguing about the race of various mythical and/or dead people? Are we really that race obsessed? And even if she was kidding, did Megyn Kelly really think that kids would be traumatized if someone told them that Santa Claus is not white? Things are even worse than […]
