Open for comment on any particular topic. Here's a few:

Coverage of Gerald Ford too positive? Try taxpayer-supported Pacifica's "Democracy Now" radio show, with this classic headline: "President Gerald Ford Dies at 93; Supported Indonesian Invasion of East Timor that Killed 1/3 of Population."

Greg Sargent of the lefty American Prospect complains that the media's failing to remember fondly and aggressively Gerald Ford's "Vietnam is so over" comments, and their relevance for getting Bush to acknowledge defeat today.

Rosie O’Donnell racist? She should have learned Chinese and tried the joke again, says a San Jose Mercury News critic.

The left-wing image analysts at BAG News Notes say the John Edwards Katrina-exploiting photo op in New Orleans triumphantly put aside "war on terror, rah rah, Bush, macho political evangelism."
