Cruising the Web

Jennifer Rubin wonders if Christiane Amanpour is on the White House payroll? She might as well be. Oh, and carrying the Palestinian water for them while she's at. She's a multi-talented woman, that Christiane.

Humberto Fontova thinks that, as long as Stephen Colbert is all the rage, that we should examine more closely one of Colbert's frequent guests.

The Jewish part of the blogosphere is abuzz about the news that George Soros is behind the funding for J Street, the Jewish American lobby that, while claiming to be pro-Israel, always seems to take a decidedly anti-Israel stand. This is despite, as Michael Goldfarb documents their public claims that they were not being funded by Soros. Hmmm, what is it about opposing efforts by Israel to defend itself while favoring the Palestinians on every issue that appeals to George Soros? And the bulk of the J Street's budget also comes from one woman in Hong Kong. So much for the group's claim to represent what real Jewish Americans believe.

Who knew that the guy behind "The Most Interesting Man in the World" is a Jewish actor living on a sailboat in Marina Del Rey and who has saved the lives of two people?

Sounds like good sense - the GOP and Democrats are using incentives to lure states into following a more rational calendar for the primaries.

The secret of getting boy to read more shouldn't be tempting them with fart and booger jokes. Writers like J.K. Rowling and Rick Riordan of the Percy Jackson books seem to have found a way to get both boys and girls to read. Thomas Spence has some other thoughts on why boys aren't reading. And it doesn't have to do with the dearth of gross-out books.

Chris Cillizza says that Jimmy Carter's lack of grace as he promotes his newest book earned him the "Worst Week in Washington." Hey, lack of grace is Carter's modus operandi.

John Kerry blames
the Democrats' woes on the public's ignorance. We're all just too dumb to realize how wonderfully he and his party are running things. And this guy wonders why people find him arrogant.

That doesn't say too much about the acumen of the people who voted for him several times. And sometimes in separate elections.

In parroting the Progressives' line and being unable to deduce the real problem, Kerry shows himself to be what precisely what he allegedly found in others - muy stupido!

The Networks can play musical chairs all night and day, but polls have shown for decades that the general public knows they are biased, and it doesn't trust them. Amanpour is just the latest, though a more blatant, example of that bias.

I stopped watching CNN because of the lack of integrity and objectivity of people like Amanpour and Peter Arnett. The "Tailwind" scandal, Eason Jordan's slanderous claim that US armed forces deliberately targeted reporters in Iraq, the Bucks for Baghdad access deal CNN cut with Saddam, and so many more episodes and examples show that corruption is the currency of CNN.

So CNN loses one biased reporter with Amanpour (on top of terrorist cheerleader Octavia Nasr's departure) and simply replaces her with another Euro-creep - Piers Morgan, a man that lost his job as editor of The Mirrorin the UK for fabricating stories of Iraqi prisoner abuse at the hands of the British Army. That apparently wasn't enough to meet CNN's high standards, they also felt the need to add freak show Client #9 - Eliot Spitzer. Disgraceful.

How desperate that ABC must have been to take a CNN retread? I guess they felt they had to find someone to equal Katie Couric and if that is the standard for the MSM, then they really have hit rock bottom. It can't be long before the MSM is begging for a bailout.
