Why I Hate “The Washington Post”

The short answer to the headline: because their (online) newspaper sucks. I’ll use a technical term and call it “dog shit.” You’ve all heard that in journalism schools right? The Washington Post was once the paper that let Woodward and Bernstein take on President Nixon. They were the most credible source of news in the… Read More »

Another Day, Another Dem Debate (But No Dollars)

6:02–It took me a minute to find what channel PBS is. 6:03–It looks like a Bernie crowd, he got slightly more enthusiastic applause than she did. 6:06–Bernie’s opening speech is seemingly endless. He’s talked for several minutes straight. Might wear himself out by the end of this. He talked too long in his New Hampshire… Read More »

Announcing a “Movie Talk” YouTube Channel…

I’ll be promoting myself more heavily on YouTube once we get everything up and running, but for now I’d like to announce the creation of “Move Talk.” I was hoping to put it on ITunes right beside “A Year Long Conversation” but they don’t allow multiple podcasts for the same account. There’s been about four… Read More »

For GOP, South Carolina and New Hampshire Are Actually Great Predictors

For the Democrats, Iowa and New Hampshire are not always accurate and they don’t even usually pick the same winner. [It’s also been known to happen that the winner of neither goes on to win the nomination, just ask Bill Clinton.] Then South Carolina has gotten it right…about 66% of the time. Not exaclty a… Read More »

Could Trump Actually Be the Nominee? It’s Looking That Way…

Trump’s “stunning” win in New Hampshire (so says a media that thinks a months-long polling advantage is surprising) may be a bigger deal than it at first appears. “But Alabama Liberal, you just said Bernie’s win was no big deal?” That’s right, but that’s because the state is Bernie’s backyard, lilly-white, and he’s not polling well… Read More »

Hillary’s Campaign Isn’t In Trouble

This instance that her campaign is in trouble is a perception that the media is more desperate to create than a reality. Hillary fully expected to lose New Hampshire to Bernie. She as much as said so in last Wednesday’s Town Hall meeting and last Thursday’s debate. She spoke freely about the polling data and the Senator… Read More »

Why Does the Media Hate Hillary Clinton?

Anyone who says the media doesn’t go after Hillary Clinton must be insane or Karl Rove or currently running for president against her. Back in 2008, SNL even had a hilarious parody of it with reporters openly showing their love for Obama while giving Hillary disdain. Right now, Bernie’s New Hampshire win was nothing short… Read More »

New Hampshire and Iowa are Not Only VERY White But Regional

Before the media gets too caught up pretending that New Hampshire and Iowa are great indicators of what the “folks out there” are thinking, it’s a little crazy to think that these two states weed out our presidential candidates when both of them put together don’t have the populations of New York (which isn’t voting… Read More »

Larger Editorial: Actually, Rubio May Be In Trouble…

It’s tempting to overthink New Hampshire—a state that is not really indicative of America, but has huge influence over its presidency—and reconfigure the race for about a week…until the next primary reshuffles it again. All the breathless coverage usually misses the point, but perhaps not in the case of Rubio’s stingingly weak showing. A week… Read More »

New Hampshire Doesn’t Change a Thing

The headlines seem to be some variation of “Hillary is in big trouble!” Or how Trump and Sanders dominated. OR how this will dramatically change the race…blah blah blah… The truth is that Donald Trump has been leading in New Hampshire for months. If he had lost tonight it would have spelled big trouble for… Read More »
