I am probably the only writer on NewsBusters to have received an award from the Soviet Union. It was for my work as an American correspondent for Krokodil Magazine which you can see chronicled in I Was A Commie Writer.

I live in South Florida which is full of eccentrics which is why I feel right at home here. My main accomplishments in life were winning a bottle of aftershave when I was eight and having the biggest PING List (over 1000 Pingees) on the Free Republic forum for my DUmmie FUnnies blog. This is fortunate since I suffer severely from Ping List Envy. 

Prior to the advent of the Web, I wrote a syndicated humor column that appeared in dozens of newspapers throughout North America. Only complete humility forbids me from telling you that my columns appeared in the Houston Chronicle, St. Petersburg Times, L.A Herald-Examiner, Winnipeg Free Press, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Vancouver Sun, and lots of other periodicals that I am much to humble to list. 

 Oh, I also produced an award-winning satirical comix website called PJ's Comix. This sort of balances out the fact that I am the WORST basketball player in the world.

When I lived in Los Angeles, I wrote comedy material for comedians. Sorry,  due to business ethics I can't reveal any of their names (Argus Hamilton).

Did you know there is a new crime of great concern in certain quarters? I am referring to "manspreading." It is the act of men simply sitting down in what until recently was considered to be a normal posture but is now considered to be something of a hate crime by certain feminists who are constantly on the lookout for reasons to be offended.

Washingtonian magazine has revealed some of the really ugly behind the scenes turmoil and backstabbings that accompanied the departure of Meet The Press host David Gregory. The revelations are both shocking and hilarious.

Former New Mexico governor and member of the Clinton cabinet, Bill Richardson, took a cheap shot at Jeb Bush on Meet The Press today. To make matters worse, his slam against Bush for poor Spanish language ability was completely wrong as we can see in a video interview with him in that idiom.

An article about a dramatic decrease in the price of oil appeared in the Washington Post's WonkBlog. However a certain F-word is notable by its very obvious absence. So what is that word? "Fracking."

December 10, 2014, 6:49 PM EST

NBC Nightly News and Politico presented two views of Jonathan Gruber's appearance before Congress in such sharp contrast that it seems as if they described two different events.

The mainstream media has now begun attacking The New Republic owner Chris Hughes for supposedly destroying it. However, before they attacked him, the MSM lavished praise upon Hughes as chronicled by James Kirchick in the Daily Beast.

December 5, 2014, 1:56 PM EST

Today it was announced that The New Republic, which celebrated it's 100th anniversary a month ago, has been hit by mass resignations. It appears that due to unwanted changes by its owner, Chris Hughes, few are willing to remain at the magazine long noted as being a mainstay of conventional liberalism.

The rising doubts about the Rolling Stone rape story have become so widespread that now even Salon is becoming skeptical. However, Salon writer Erin Keane admits she completely bought into the story until other sources began checking it out. The admission can be seen in the headline of her story: "Rolling Stone’s UVA rape story backlash: When narratives are so compelling that we don’t notice unbalanced reporting."

Amid all the events in the wake of the release of the grand jury findings in Ferguson, a brief moment of unusual mental clarity on the part of a liberal reporter has been overlooked. It happened last Wednesday when Ferguson was being discussed on Wolf Blitzer as Ashleigh Banfield proclaimed she was "shocked" that the grand jury witnesses backed up former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson's story.

Hands Up! Don't Shoot!

It's the gesture now making the rounds based on Ferguson myth. So what happens when someone who buys into the myth, such as Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post, is challenged to back it up with facts? Well, the lame defense as you can see is the incredibly low standard that there is no evidence that his hands weren't up. Here is Robinson on Morning Joe today setting the evidence bar subterranean low:

November 30, 2014, 5:38 PM EST

National Review editor caused quite an uproar on Meet The Press for the "heresy" of citing the evidence presented to the Ferguson case grand jury which backed up the account of officer Darren Wilson. Among liberal circles, such evidence is rarely if ever cited because the truths it reveals are quite inconvenient to the narrative they have presented and continue to stick with.

Are you about to enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey? Well, Salon writer Lindsay Abrams wants you to stop. Stop right now! Not content to give liberal ideology a rest even on this holiday, Abrams attempts to guilt trip her readers into giving up turkey for Thanksgiving.

Ezra Klein put on his Sherlock Holmes cap and examined Officer Darren Wilson's testimony with his magnifying glass. The wannabee junior detective using his newly discovered street smarts somehow deduced that Wilson's story was "unbelievable." As a result, Klein has been widely mocked on Twitter.

It looks as if this final season of The Newsroom might end with total apocalypse. The show is ending and the world will probably end with it if Aaron Sorkin continues with the theme of last night's show in which a government official warns that not only is the world doomed due to global warming but there is nothing we can do about it.

The Associated Press is not known as being normally critical of Barack Obama therefore it was quite surprising that their fact check found the President's speech last Thursday taking unilateral action to halt deportations of illegals to be chock full of Gruber.

November 19, 2014, 9:38 PM EST

The Washington Post story about President Obama meeting with lawmakers had a completely misleading headline. It sounds oh so inclusive but when you actually read the story, guess who is missing at the dinner meeting?

November 18, 2014, 2:12 PM EST

Although MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell claims that President Obama has the prosecutorial discretion not to deport illegal aliens, he can't find any legal justification for work documents to be issued to them in the proposed executive order. Not only could his  Democrat guest, Representative Peter Welch of Vermont, come up with such legal justfication but O'Donnell claimed he spent several days contacting elected Democrats and none of them could provide it either.

Since Politico was unable to ignore the Jonathan Gruber controversy, they now seem to be switching gears to downplay his role. Politico health care reporter Paige Winfield Cunningham has crafted a story using quotes to demonstrate that Gruber really wasn't an Obamacare architect. Ironically Cunningham herself as recently as July referred to Gruber as an Obamacare architect.
 

November 13, 2014, 2:22 PM EST

Nancy Pelosi denied knowing who Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber is. Unfortunately for Pelosi, her official website was chock full of Gruber references in 2009. This fact could have been easily discovered by Washington Post writer Sean Sullivan whose story headlined Pelosi's denial of knowing Gruber. For some reason he chose not to fact check this blatant falsehood perpetrated by Pelosi.

November 12, 2014, 5:51 PM EST

Politico finally got around to reporting on the Jonathan Gruber video scandal in which he boasted about how ObamaCare deception was necessary in order to get the bill passed. However, the two Politico reports on this story in addition to being published days after this story had already gone viral, were notable for their brevity and the fact that they made it seem to imply that it was somehow a Fox News obsession rather than being of wider interest.
