Whoops: New York Times Beclowns Itself With Inaccurate Hit-Piece On ND Oil Boom

Whoops: New York Times Beclowns Itself With Inaccurate Hit-Piece On ND Oil Boom

Yesterday I wrote about that New York Times hit piece on the Bakken oil boom which was highly critical of the state’s handling of oil development under Republican leaders like Governor Jack Dalrymple. In the post I noted that several sources told me that the Times reporters were awfully chummy with former Democrat Lt. Governor candidate Ellen Chaffee while

We Can't Talk About Delayed Grain Shipments Without Talking About Delayed Pipelines

Yesterday the New York Times published a story about delayed grain shipments in North Dakota. “The furious pace of energy exploration in North Dakota is creating a crisis for farmers whose grain shipments have been held up by a vast new movement of oil by rail, leading to millions of dollars in agricultural losses and slower

North Dakota Is Inconvenient For Obama's Politics

The New York Times has a story about festering dissent against the President in the “states that Obama forgot,” and not surprisingly North Dakota is one of them (I wonder if the Times ever described liberal angst over President Bush as “festering”?). That shouldn’t surprise us. North Dakota doesn’t get a lot of visits from

Federal Reserve Study: Taxes, Not A Lack Of Government Spending, Hurting America's Economy

According to the left, particularly people such as economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, America’s economic woes are related to government austerity.

Almost 60 percent of those who oppose recognition of same-sex marriages think it’s inevitable anyway.” Pew’s research goes much further, though, showing significant

Report: No Liberal Or Even Non-Partisan Groups Say They Were Targeted By The IRS

“Republicans are looking for a conspiracy where there isn’t one,” Rep. Jim McDermott said of the inquiry into the IRS scandal during a House Ways and Committee hearing earlier this week. And yet, according to McClatchy, not a single liberal or even non-ideological group has come forward to say they were mistreated by the IRS

Republican Senator Not Entirely Sure That Bloggers Have 1st Amendment Rights

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham isn’t so sure that bloggers have a constitutional right to just say anything they want. I mean, what do they think this is, a free country? Speaking to reporters, the South Carolina senator asked rhetorically, “Who is a journalist is a question we need to ask ourselves?” the Free Times

President Obama: I'll Work With Anyone As Long As They Agree With Me

“[J]ournalists fetishize centrism and deal making, and assume that the best of all possible legislation, regardless of its actual content, is the kind that has both parties’ fingerprints on it,” Ross Doutaht wrote for the New York Times last month. It’s exactly that fetish that President Obama is no-doubt pandering to when he says that
