Media Notes Extra



 



Bolton Bashing Bonanza

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

It's time for a little honesty on the John Bolton nomination. Scott McClellan is perfectly within his rights to say that Democrats are playing politics with Bush's U.N. nominee. But to accuse Democrats of using "trumped up" charges? Let's face it: This is what opposition parties do.



Benedictine Warfare

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Despite all the intriguing domestic story lines out there -- Jeffords retiring, Voinovich defecting, DeLay ripping judges for using the Internet -- the coverage of the new Pope has set off the most media sparks.



Media Botch Papal Predictions

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Now that we have the white smoke--and I'll leave it to others to decipher why a 78-year-old was chosen as Pope, and how he wrapped up the thing so quickly--let's take a quick look back at the pregame coverage.



The Conservative Pin-Up Girl

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Yes, those are Ann Coulter's legs on the cover of Time magazine (along with the rest of her, but the legs take up half the page).



When Blogs Bite Back

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

The growing tide of personal attacks by bloggers and e-mailers "can make you really paranoid," says New York Times reporter Adam Nagourney.



Death to the Death Tax?

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

In reading about the House repeal of the estate tax, one sentence jumped out at me.



DeLay Only the Latest Target

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

As the Tom DeLay controversy refuses to die--or, I suppose some folks would say, the press refuses to let it die--we've been hearing a lot from the Texas congressman about liberal media bias.



The Bolton Factor

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

What are the Democrats getting out of opposing all these Bush nominees? They don't seem to be stopping them, that's for sure. But then, that may not be the point.



The Coming News Crisis

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

The column you are reading right now is free of charge. So is just about everything else on washingtonpost.com. And on nytimes.com, latimes.com, chicagotribune.com and so on. And therein lies a problem.



Cuban Tries to Score Online

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Billionaires can be bloggers, too. And if you're Mark Cuban, high-tech entrepreneur and basketball team owner, blogging enables you to communicate directly with the fans -- and slap some sportswriters with such labels as "the new moron in town."



Papal Cliffhanger

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

This is a job for Ron Brownstein, Adam Nagourney, Dan Balz and John Harwood, but even they might be mystified over how to cover the campaign.



Blog Till You Drop

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

I have seen the future of the blogosphere, and I'm out of breath.



Canada's Press Crackdown

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Is anyone in the market for some non-Pope news? With the papal passing still dominating the media, especially on cable, I thought I might check in on what else is going on out there.



End of an Anchor Era

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

In the fall of 1988, Michael Dukakis was droning on in his impassive way when Ted Koppel cut him short: "I still don't think you get it." At that moment, the cognoscenti concluded, the presidential campaign was over.



News Vertigo

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Tina Brown, who knows something about high and low culture -- having gone from a magazine called Tatler to Vanity Fair to the New Yorker -- hit it on the head yesterday.



Three Ring Spectacle

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Every morning we got up and the plot was the same, like Groundhog Day. Terri Schiavo was hanging on, the media circus got under way, the publicity-seekers, headline-hunters, sign-wavers and assorted kooks got their 15 seconds of attention.



Splitsville

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

One of the most common headlines around these days is "GOP Split on [Fill-in-the-Blank]."



Turning on DeLay

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

In media terms, it's an earthquake almost as loud as Walter Cronkite turning against the Vietnam War. Tom DeLay has got to be thinking: Et tu, Wall Street Journal?



TV Dogs Learning New Tricks

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

"I hate to jinx it by saying it aloud," Bob Schieffer told viewers of the "CBS Evening News" Thursday, but "all of a sudden there's some pretty good news" in declining U.S. casualties in Iraq.



Culture War

Fri, 6 May 2005 11:16:02 GMT

Our great national shouting match over Terri Schiavo has moved way beyond the brain-damaged woman herself.
