that's basically true. proof positive of the list's idiocy is that andrew "strange new respect" sullivan hasn't yet made it.

i love pareene's "gotcha" against matt bai as well - "The political reporter who doesn't believe in political science." oh noes! matt bai doesn't bow down to the noxious notion that people are little more than stimulus response machines!!

Your peculiar obsession with Andrew Sullivan aside, I think you should probably read the entire post on Matt Bai, not to mention following the link within which fleshes out the "doesn't believe in political science" line, before you pass judgment on Pareene's critique. Of course I do not expect anything better than kneejerk tribalism and denialism from the operative, but I'd like to think that you're somewhat different.

Nothing to do with Tribalism, they're also far less significant than the lefties that they threw in. It's just lame pissiness. It reminds me of when males nitpick very attractive female celebrities in internet comments, ignoring the fact that they would count themselves incredibly lucky if they ever dated someone so attractive.

P.S. The complete list is not up yet, but at this moment, you can find #30 through #13 here.
For convenience, I've gathered up the full (now complete) list here.

Default Re: Bob's Thanksgiving Message

Here's a NYTimes article by Robert Wright about thanksgiving, his calling and his pessimism.

Two thoughts came to mind when reading it (yes, only two of any significance). First, it's too easy to find the positive when life is being good to you. The challenge is to find it when everything seems to be against you. That's the real test.

And second, when you're in your quest for the positive, you're leaving behind all that is negative. You can't just in the middle of it, turn back to look at the ugliness left behind. Perhaps that's what the story about Lot's wife was about. Besides, you don't need to look, like a shadow, it will always be behind you as long as you're heading towards the light.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Default Re: Chris Hayes: New MSNBC Guest Host

Another stint for Chris. Here he is guest-hosting on the Maddow show, interviewing Jeremy Scahill of Nation magazine. Scahill has just returned from Afghanistan, and what he has to say is worth listening to. It's about six minutes long. I believe it originally aired 23 Nov 2010.

Default Michael Goldfarb now on the Koch Bros. payroll

Mentioned by TBogg, verified after a little Googling; e.g., by Lee Fang of Think Progress. Wonder how long it'll be before he's called upon to do some Daily Caller-style "work" for them.

Apparently, he's also on Sarah Palin's payroll.

Default But will he blog while wearing a bow tie?




TBogg passes along news that Kausfiles will take up residence at Tucker Carlson's webzine. (As of this moment, the canonical URL still points to Newsweek.)

From a press release put out by his new employer:

Quote:
Asked for comment on his move to The Daily Caller, Mr. Kaus said, The Daily Caller is serious but with a sense of perspective. They cover whatever the day's fuss is about but they obviously appreciate the fun of politics. It's not a grim chase after search engine-driven Web hits. I'm proud to join them. I've dealt with some of their reporters and found them to be both knowledgeable and honest, with no partisan axes to grind. They have open minds. And, of course, great barbeque."
Though the press release mentions pretty much everything he's done in his professional life, it does not mention Bhtv.

Default Eric Alterman has a new book out

And wouldn't it be great to have him come on to Bhtv to talk about it? HINT HINT.

This, from his home page, appears to be the thesis:

Quote:
Presidents can pretty easily pass tax cuts for the wealthy and powerful corporations. They can start whatever wars they wish and wiretap whomever they want without warrants. They can order the torture of terrorist suspects, lie about it and see that their intelligence services destroy the evidence. But what they cannot do, even with supermajorities in both houses of Congress behind them, is pass the kind of transformative progressive legislation that Barack Obama promised in his 2008 campaign.
In addition to analysis, there are proposals:

Quote:
Alterman offers a clear game plan for potential change, expounding his belief that with regard to almost every single one of our problems, we need better, smarter organizing at every level and a willingness on the part of liberals and leftists to work with what remains of the center to begin the process of reforms that are a beginning, rather than an endpoint in the process of societal transformation.
The book description also says that this is a "revised, updated, and much-expanded version of Altermans July 2010 online essay for The Nation." That essay lives here.

Click the pic to go to the book's page on Amazon.

Default Evgeny Morozov ...

... a three-time 'head, will be on Book TV this weekend to talk about his book, The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom.

Show times and (likely, eventually) links to online viewing options available here. Show blurb from that page:

Quote:
Evgeny Morozov, contributing editor to Foreign Policy, argues that the Internet may do less to democratize states and more to maintain dictators and hurt dissidents. The author examines the ways governments are using the internet to maintain political power such as China's "50 cent party," which pays its 280,000 members 50 cents for each pro-government comment left online. Evgeny Morozov discusses his book in conversation with Susan Glasser, editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C.

Default Massimo Pigliucci ...

... has a newish book out: Nonsense on Stilts: How to Tell Science from Bunk.

You can hear him talk about it on the latest Rationally Speaking podcast:

Quote:
Massimo and Julia sit down in front of a live audience at the Jefferson Market Library in New York City for a conversation about science, non-science, and pseudo-science. Based on Massimo's book: "Nonsense on Stilts: How to Tell Science from Bunk" the topics they cover include whether the qualitative sciences are less reliable than quantitative ones, the re-running of the tape of life, and who is smarter: physicists, biologists, or psychologists? Also, why are evolutionary psychologist so fixated on sex?

The descent continues. It appears he has reduced himself to typing up Andrew Breitbart's racist lies.

Sadly, Conor Friedersdorf does not come off much better (see also), although he does eventually apologize for his own retyping.

Online viewing now available. I'm about halfway through. It's pretty good, after a slow start.

The interviewer agrees with him too much, so that part's a drawback.

TBogg calls attention to four more worthwhile responses to Ross's latest public expression of his problems with the sexytime, including one from a B'head. (The other three should be.)

And then he points out some facts of which Ross seems not to be aware. Or was too uncomfortable to address. Imagine that.

[Added] Oh, and look! Mr. Riley also weighs in:

Quote:
And listen: I'm sorry. Writing about Ross Douthat writing about sex is like singing about Celine Dion's mastery of nuance. Don't shoot the messenger.

In fact, preteritio alert, let's not even talk about Douthat's problem with sex, and concentrate on his problem with constructing an argument.

I think you overreached, a little. Also, it's hard to argue with the following. (I mean what counts as a serious right-wing site with useful content on economic issues? Mises.org? NRO? There's not much there, there.)
Quote:
Some have asked if there arent conservative sites I read regularly. Well, no. I will read anything Ive been informed about thats either interesting or revealing; but I dont know of any economics or politics sites on that side that regularly provide analysis or information I need to take seriously. I know were supposed to pretend that both sides always have a point; but the truth is that most of the time they dont. The parties are not equally irresponsible; Rachel Maddow isnt Glenn Beck; and a conservative blog, almost by definition, is a blog written by someone who chooses not to notice that asymmetry. And life is short

Yeah, I was obviously exaggerating. But I still don't think it speaks well of Krugman, and it seems somewhat ironic based on the epistemic closure debate. The problem with "what counts a good right wing economics blog!?!" is that I could say a similar thing about left wing economic blogs. What counts as a serious left wing site with useful content on economic issues? Yglesias and Ezra Klein are the only I find useful and at least somewhat fair, and both sites (people, really) have a myriad of issues. There are plenty of good, fair right wing sites that talk about economics. Being ignorant of them doesn't mean they don't exist. The American Scene, Reihan Salam's blog (The Agenda over at NRO), Greg Mankiw's blog, Marginal Revolution (probably the best of the bunch, if you're specifically talking about economic wonkery).

You're right about Reihan and Mankiw. I'll check out Marginal Revolution. The examples Krugman gave, even the most ideological ones (e.g. Atrios), but especially Crooked Timber and the like have a lot of value.
