I got a laugh out of this:

LA Times Mistakes Olbermann For Jackass | Online | Mediaite

The Los Angeles Times issued a correction today sure to give MSNBC haters a laugh.

In their TV grid yesterday, they put MTV’s Jackass in the MSNBC line-up where Countdown with Keith Olbermann was supposed to go. That’s right – Jackass instead of Olbermann. Here’s the full correction:

FOR THE RECORD

TV listings: The Prime-Time TV grid in Thursday’s Calendar section mistakenly listed MTV’s “Jackass” show on the MSNBC cable schedule at 7 and 10 p.m. where instead MSNBC’s “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” should have been listed.


In noting the correction on the LAT Top of the Ticket blog, Andrew Malcolm had some fun with the mistake: “A few thousand people might have tuned into MSNBC, the Obama administration’s favorite cable channel, expecting to see a “Jackass” show, and instead they’d have found Olbermann. Worse, what if nobody noticed the difference?”

Here’s our question: was this the work of an editor, jokingly putting the show there for fun and forgetting to take it out before it went to print? And will the LAT make the “Worst Persons” list tonight?

Obama to raise 10-year deficit to $9 trillion | U.S. | Reuters

Quote:
The White House took heat for sticking with its $7.108 trillion forecast earlier this year after the Congressional Budget Office forecast that deficits between 2010 and 2019 would total $9.1 trillion.

"The new forecasts are based on new data that reflect how severe the economic downturn was in the late fall of last year and the winter of this year," said the administration official, who is familiar with the budget mid-session review that is slated to be released next week.

"Our budget projections are now in line with the spring and summer projections that the Congressional Budget Office put out."

Well, the White House was only off by 28% on their deficit.

Our foreign debt holders must be thrilled.

I am helping to support my son, who's been out of work for 7 months. It's everything I can do to keep his spirits up and with what he can on unemployement compensation.
If he takes a job for less than what he had, he can't live on his own. He will not be able pay child support, insurance, rent and utilities. His ex-wife is truly pissed off. I can understand this, but I also see his point. He has to make a certain amount or he can't live on his own. He's welcomed to live with me, but who wants to do that?
The jobs are not here, yet. He has 3 more months of unemployment. He is freaking out.
So am I.

Edited to say: he has no health insurance.

You think that's bad?

MSNBC Edits Story to Fit Agenda - Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld - FOXNews.com

So on Tuesday, we talked about the black dude who showed up in Arizona where Barack Obama was speaking, armed to the teeth. We all agreed that despite his actions being legal, it was still nuts.

There are many things in life that are legal, but inappropriate if done in public. Don't ask me how I know this.

But this leads me to MSNBC, where on Tuesday, Contessa Brewer filed a report about health care protesters showing up armed. In it, she used tape of that same black guy with a rifle and said this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CONTESSA BREWER, MSNBC: And the reason we're talking about this, a lot of talk here, Dylan, because people feel like, yes, there are Second Amendment rights for sure, but also there are questions about whether this has racial overtones. I mean, here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists or to their legs.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

But, like I said, the guy was black. But you never would have known, because MSNBC strategically edited the tape, so the race of the armed dude wasn't revealed.

If you look at the tape from Tuesday, clearly you can see the man who goes by the name "Chris" is African-American.

So why did MSNBC go way out of its way to obliterate the race of "Chris"?

Because it didn't fit the story MSNBC wanted to tell: That if you disagree with Obama, you must be a white crazy person with guns — even if you're black.

Look, there were millions of people angry at Bush and the media never seemed to worry if their own vicious anti-Bush rhetoric would foment hate.

Even more, I also resent that my opinion, enraged or not, can be dismissed as racism. Fact is, I've been against Obama's policies back when they were Hillary's policies and even before that, when they were Ted Kennedy's and Jimmy Carter's.

Wrongheaded-ness knows no color, which is why my shorty robes only come in Topaz.


YouTube - Greg Gutfeld and Red Eye Gang Rip MSNBC!

I'm with you on this one. That's pretty unnecessary.

I find it effing hilarious that Fox News is even attempting to publicly go after another station for editing stories to fit an agenda. If ever there were a case of the pot calling the kettle black, this is it.

Come.

On.

This is really great. So great, comedy could never get even close. Fox News of all stations is complaining about another "news station" being partisan and editing a news in an obvious manner.

I'm a liberal but I cannot stand MSNBC and never watch it. It's so blatantly partisan, that I get sick just trying to watch it. I don't like being told what to think; I like balance and impartiality and then I can make up my own mind.

I feel the same. Call me old-fashioned but I still believe the news should report things, not shape them. Both MSNBC and Fox News fail any journalistic standards. I think the trends towards 24 hour news shows its dangerous and ugly face in these two channels especially.

The only person I know who actually watched MSNBC on a regular basis was a conservative ex-girlfriend of mine
