Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

I think that shows why creating an analogue of repercussions between old media and new media sources is difficult.

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

My dispute is with the referencing of a multi-million dollar smear website.

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

I wasn't likely to regard anything he had to say before or after ;)

I do understand the point that this can cause people to question future claims, and that's something that both Rather and...

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

They hardly behaved responsibly, though, did they? They rushed to judgment. I find it more disconcerting that the White House would be so irresponsible, though the NAACP lost its standing a while...

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Since Breitbart is self-employed, we can't expect the same ;)

Rather found a new job pretty quickly and is hardly regarded as a discredited fraud in the journalism community.

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Rather is a liberal ideologue who let his partisanship get in the way of his journalism.

Come on now do a little better than MediaMatters.

What Breitbart did is absolutely no different than what Dan Rather did.

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

I agree that Breitbart was remiss in his journalistic duties in not doing the necessary factchecking to verify that the excerpts were not out of context. But this whole 'discredited' argument seems...

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

And this is because he has happened to concentrate on someone who is black? How is that different than calling liberal pundits who concentrate on Michael Steele racist, or Palin-obsessees sexist?

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

You are asserting that Breitbart has been 'discredited.' I can only gather that your argument is that when one makes a decision without verifying that what they are going off of is totally legit,...

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

So, your argument is that when one decides to take an action without doing the necessary legwork to verify their materials' integrity, they are discredited?

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

It's a fine point to make but it should not be made while missing out on details revolving around the case.

I think it does matter, though. Far too many liberals have taken to defending Obama by...

Re: Splitters and Lumpers (Josh Cohen & Jim Pinkerton)

A few thoughts on the Mosque issue:

I disagree with Josh's total rejection of calling the culture center a mosque. Since it includes a mosque, I don't think it's incorrect to refer to it as a...

Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Glenn gets some basic facts wrong. Breitbart didn't distort the video, he put out what he was given without doing the responsible factchecking to make sure that the snippets weren't taken out of...

Bob and Hamas

Bob doesn't seem to see much wrong with supporting Hamas, a virulently anti-semitic terrorist organization.

By that same logic, it wouldn't be bad to support the Klan. Now, not everyone who has...

Re: It's Hot (Tim Fernholz & Conn Carroll)

I agree with most of this, though having only taken a cursory read over Webb's WSJ piece, I think that his broader point was about the myth of 'white privilege', and I think the stats about the...

Re: It's Hot (Tim Fernholz & Conn Carroll)

Conn so thoroughly routes Tim Fernholz on the NBP story that it's a sad, sad, but compulsively watchable affair.

Re: Values Added: Sarah Palin and Pentecostalism (Sarah Posner & Anthea Butler)

It'd be interesting to see some stats on this but off by hand, I think that Pentecostals are hardly overwhelmingly republican. The Pentecostal churches in my city tend to be in poorer, urban areas....

Re: Values Added: Sarah Palin and Pentecostalism (Sarah Posner & Anthea Butler)

I forgot to mention the irony of your using a lefty blog's religious argument in the context of attempting to argue that the right is more explicitly guided by religious sentiment.

Re: Values Added: Sarah Palin and Pentecostalism (Sarah Posner & Anthea Butler)

Extremely high approval ratings and a sweeping reelection in a year that was bad for his party do suggest success, whether you wish to accept it or not. If you have a specific claim you want to...
