Miscellaneous meanderings and philosophical ramblings. The title from a spiral notebook I used to jot down my thoughts on religion and other matters some years ago. I like to write, think and express my views on various issues. Robust discussion is welcome.

Michelle Malkin more fair to flipper than MSM!!

Conservative columnist and bane to "Chrissy" Matthews shows more fairness to John "flipper" Kerry than the mainstream media by merely holding to a higher standard of excellence. In this case by actually researching a story and verifying details rather than following the mainstream media lead.


Mentioned this question briefly in the Boltonblogging post below. There's plenty to criticize John Kerry for, but this isn't one of them. The Associated Press now asserts that both Sen. John Kerry and Sen. Richard Lugar "may have blown" a CIA agent's cover during the Bolton hearings. (Lugar mentioned the name in his opening statement; Kerry dropped the name during questioning.)

Well, did they or didn't they blow it? Don't just rely on AP. Arms Control Wonk , the blog of Research Fellow Jeffrey Lewis at the Center for International and Security Studies at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, provides four previous media citations of the agent's name--all which make public reference to the agent, Fulton Armstrong, and the specific intelligence controversy at issue--dating back to September 2002.

So, how come the AP reporter wrote this?
Committee Chairman Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., both mentioned a name, Fulton Armstrong, that had not previously come up in public accounts of the intelligence flap.

And how will all of these newspapers that picked up the AP story square the reporter's assertion with those previous media citations?

It would have been easy to pile on when all the usual suspects are. Yet, she goes for accuracy rather than assume the worst of a political opponent. Is it any wonder her star is rising?
