rove free blog

Erg.
From Salon: “Metrosexuals, move over. The small towns of America are churning out macho, high-maintenance pretty men who love women and Budweiser -- and have perfectly waxed privates.”

And do they have their people working the meth labs for them?

A review from Ben Shapiro, author of PORN GENERATION: HOW SOCIAL LIBERALISM IS CORRUPTING OUR FUTURE. Did I mention that he is the author of PORN GENERATION: HOW SOCIAL LIBERALISM IS CORRUPTING OUR FUTURE?
"TransGeneration" provides a textbook example of television executives legitimizing deviancy for all of us in the name of a "live and let live" society where anything goes. As I explain in my new book, "Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future," Hollywood's focus on pushing the envelope leads to greater societal tolerance for higher levels of deviancy. According to the TV execs, we should all embrace the deviant -- after all, these transgendered students are "idealistic and impassioned," going through "life changes" just like the rest of us. Who are we to condemn them?

Drudge goes wild!
Today’s headline: SEN. MCCAIN STARS IN BOOB RAUNCH FEST

The review of the movie in question, WEDDING CRASHERS, on MSN reveals that “McCain appears for only a few seconds, apparently playing himself (as does James Carville), while [Christopher] Walken is cast as a fictional Secretary of the Treasury.” Who are we to condemn him?

MSM launches blog!
CBS is going to have its own blog, according to the New York Times:

“Andrew Heyward, the president of CBS News, said that Internet users did not want to watch programs as they were produced for broadcasts … and would rather have more control over their viewing.

"’The beauty of the Internet is we are not singing the linear blues in a nonlinear age,’ he said. "We don't want to make someone wait through 45 minutes of the Scott McClellan briefing if they want to see footage of the mudslide.’”

Huh?

I know that the blogosphere is the bee’s knees these days, but isn’t there a case to be made for getting something other than only information we WANT to receive? If we only see what we want to see, and if those who create information give us only the information they think we want to see, are we really informed? Or are we just the final link in a food chain?
