NBC's David Gregory on Tuesday appeared to make the case that the public really didn't need to know about former CIA Director David Petraeus's affair with biographer Paula Broadwell.

Arianna Huffington Uses the Onion to Support Anti-Petraeus, Anti-'the

November 18th, 2012 10:51 AM
In her "Sunday Roundup" post at the site which bears her last name, Arianna Huffington supported that notion that "This week, America finally began questioning the judgment of its generals," but lamented that the scrutiny is over "sexual conduct rather than military conduct." Fine, that's her opinion. But what's really odd is that she apparently thought…

Next Year, Year After, Whenever: Pelosi's Addled Take on US Departure

November 16th, 2012 7:40 PM
How I look forward to Rachel Maddow's chummy chats with Bay Area soulmate Nancy Pelosi -- especially when it turns awkward. On her MSNBC show last night, Maddow showed clips of her "exclusive" interview with Pelosi earlier in the day.

November 16th, 2012 12:15 PM
As more information comes to light regarding the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi, now seems like a perfect time to examine how an objective journalist deals with the Obama administration's evolving view of the attack as opposed to how an Obama-boosting one does.

November 15th, 2012 3:16 PM
The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair has raised and will continue to raise a number of questions. First among them (OK, maybe not first, national security being more important, but stay with me) is why should he have resigned? I am always amused when journalists use the words "sex scandal" when writing about such things. Having abandoned most…

Did We Forget About Sen. Bob Menendez's (Alleged) Solicitation of Pro

November 14th, 2012 5:52 PM
As the discussions about sex and sex scandals dominate the media due to the Petraeus affair, one affair the media are strangely silent about is that of New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, who was handily reelected last week despite shocking allegations that his idea of an Easter vacation was flying to the Dominican Republican to soliciting sex from prostitutes. Oh, and, like Secret Service agents…

Politico Pair Goes to Pot in Listing Seven Questions It Believes the P

November 14th, 2012 9:55 AM
Unless today is a total surprise and runs contrary to most of what we've seen during the past four years, President Obama will go through another "news conference" without a great deal of difficult or aggressive questioning from the assembled press corps. Carrie Budoff Brown and Josh Gerstein at the Politico seem to think otherwise, and have produced a lame list of seven…
