Ruh-roh … are unions partly to blame for ‘unbearable whiteness of liberal media’?

http://twitter.com/#!/dantebarry/status/465847066603040768 Writer Gabriel Arana’s new piece for the left-wing American Prospect is raising some eyebrows this morning, merely by acknowledging what conservatives have known for a long time: The liberal media is dominated by progressives of pallor. http://twitter.com/#!/aterkel/status/465860267445075968 You don’t say! It’s not just the Prospect. Journalism upstarts like Vox Media and FiveThirtyEighthave come under fire recently for lack of diversity in their hires, but that’s largely because they are drawing from the milky-white pool of “existing talent.” In the corner of the publishing industry that caters to college-educated wonks—a slightly fuzzy […]

‘Lost my cool’: Rep. Grimm apologizes after threatening reporter, plans lunch date

http://twitter.com/#!/ChadPergram/status/428570044176404480 Last night, New York Rep. Mike Grimm was caught on camera getting rather testy with reporter Michael Scotto, apparently threatening to “throw [Scotto] off this f*cking balcony.” But after sleeping on it, Grimm seems to have had a change of heart: http://twitter.com/#!/ChadPergram/status/428566297895399424 http://twitter.com/#!/ChadPergram/status/428569917768491009 http://twitter.com/#!/ChadPergram/status/428570749452832768 http://twitter.com/#!/ChadPergram/status/428570986460356608 So, have fences been mended? http://twitter.com/#!/mikescotto/status/428560145942319105 OK.

Pandermania! RNC says ‘all Republicans support equal pay’

http://twitter.com/#!/GOP/status/506524410158006272 We get that the RNC is trying to zing the White House for its rank hypocrisy on this issue. But seeming to embrace the socialist notion that the government should mandate equal pay by gender is a total messaging #fail.

Michelle Malkin calls out double standard in outrage over sexist attacks

http://twitter.com/#!/GQMagazine/status/425341007249821696 Here’s a late-breaking scoop from the New York Times, courtesy of op-ed contributor Amy Wallace: female journalists and bloggers are often the target of vile, sexist attacks. As Wallace writes, this kind of vitriol “seeks to intimidate and, ultimately, to silence female journalists who write about controversial topics.” Of course, conservative women who write about controversial topics have known this for a long, long time, as Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin demonstrates. http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/425342216681172992 http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/425342503923888129 No, seriously, it’s true! http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/425342684031483904 One simple click on any of the following searches […]
