Mitt Romney gave a speech at the annual NAACP event and was booed. REALLY? I thought a billionaire born into privilege with a wife who teaches horses to dance would really connect. Romney acknowledged that many barriers still exist for African Americans, especially in his neighborhood. Steve Rosenfield has a rundown of the entire speech.
2012 is the hottest year in recorded history, the 10 hottest years have all occurred in the last 12 years, and weather is going F’ing crazy! ( I hope you appreciated that I cleaned it up right there).
So we ask world famous climate scientist George Will who has studied the issue and has concluded that its hot because ” it is summer, get over it!”. Its that kind of inquisitive mind and hard nosed journalism that makes George Will so useful to the man.
Leon Panetta, like most Secretaries of Defense, lives by the credo “if you can’t enjoy invading countries and killing people, why even get up in the morning”. 60 minutes did a Puff -Piece on him and yet he still gets stumped by the first question: “how many countries are we actively fighting in right now”. He doesn’t’ know, which is very disturbing, but what really makes you feel horrible is that he laughed about it. Hey, maybe the guy in charge of all the killing doesn’t’ get to cavalierly laugh about it.
Luke Russert, the worlds most successful intern, has been our least favorite reporter for some time. If you read Huffington Post then you already know everything that Luke is about to tell you. He gets caught at being horrible at his job by Martin Bashir when he gets asked a direct question about the antics of the congressional republics. It is a pretty amazing example of EVERYTHING that is wrong with the 4th estate. LEts remember that he is being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to be a “newsman”.
Originating from KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, The Jimmy Dore Show is an irreverent and humorous take on today’s headlines and hypocrites. The program skewers politicians as well as the corporate mouthpieces which make up today’s mainstream “news media.” Each and every week, The Jimmy Dore Show provides the unvarnished truth with a twist of funny.
