Head and Shoulders


The most hilarious example of horrid photo editing I have seen in some time. Check the right-hand column. Way to go, Huffington Post (screen shot taken at about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday, January 4)!

Wage Weasels Ripped Your Flesh


If one is properly attuned, even the most innocuous seeming news story can be rife with outrage. For instance. I do not usually have the time to read the USA Toady, which is delivered with the local newspaper each morning, but this morning was enjoying a leisurely breakfast out and so had time to do […]

Dear The Huffington Post


I went to Journalism School. So I spent a good deal of my time studying headline writing. Not just style. I used to write headlines when you actually had to think on paper about how long the headline had to be. Your headlines suck. Your headlines suck so horribly that if they were a physical […]

The Real Question, Buried As Usual


The USA Toady breathlessly trumpets, above the fold, the following headline: “In Wis., private sector pays less.” Wisconsin, the story reports, is one of 41 states where public employees earn higher average pay and benefits than private workers in the same state, this according to an analysis by the USA Toady itself. It’s on the […]

Speaking Of Freakishly Tall, Lesbionic Grace


When Rachel Maddow first started making waves about CNN’s live-time broadcast of Michele Bachmann Overdrive’s lazy-eyed “response” to the State of the Union, we here at the imaginary think-tank the Serious Poo-Poo Institute of Technology thought she making a bit too much of it. Then we watched Maddow’s last segment of last night’s broadcast, when […]

Imus and Fox ‘News’ Deserve Each Other


First of all, let us establish early on that Don Imus is a racist blobfish. You are probably aware of this improbable broadcast celebrity’s misogynistic, racist, bizarre, mean, and un-funny put-down of the Rutgers womens’ basketball team of 2007. Dig a little further, or become an amateur Howard Stern Show historian as I have, and […]

Am I Getting Through To You, Mr. Beale?


I was fond of Keith Olbermann’s “Special Comment” of last evening; I even embedded it here for a moment with a headline that indicated that Olbermann’s soliloquy had provided me with a certain bodily release. This made me laugh quite a bit, and then, for reasons to follow, I killed the post. Because then I […]

That’s Nice and All, But…


Jon Stewart this past weekend gave a barn-burner of a speech adjacent to his “Rally to Restore Sanity.” The embed: And the transcript, thank you, Huffington Post: And now I thought we might have a moment, however brief, for some sincerity. If that’s okay—I know that there are boundaries for a comedian / pundit / […]

Public Broad Casting


Public broadcasting. This is one of those issues on which mine very own Papa Bonk used to opine and I’d sort of squint at him and go “HUH?” Because PB has argued for years that federal support for public broadcasting should be yanked. And, as of recently—even though that is the entity that taught me […]



A reporter is in a corridor in a public school and is trying to ask a question of a man who is running to be a senator in these Untied States of America. Before I continue, may I offer a brief definition of a “public school” as “an institution of learning that is financed by […]
