Steven Brill Likens Chris Hughes
To A Drunk College Newspaper Editor

New York Observer, by Kara Bloomgarden-Smoke

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/22/2013 7:42:58 AM

Today, Time magazine published “Bitter Pill,” Steven Brill’s 36 page cover story on America’s health care system. But the 24,000 word piece, which is the longest article by one writer ever published in the magazine, was originally going to be the cover of last month’s relaunched The New Republic, reports Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone. And Mr. Brill has no kind words to say about TNR‘s editor in chief and Facebook billionaire Chris Hughes,

All of these people deserve each other. Brill is a miserable S.O.B. in real life, Anita Dunn is a Madison Avenue flack who thinks Chairman Mao (a worse mass murderer than either Hitler or Stalin) is a man to be admired and emulated, it goes on and on. Yuck! I am so glad I am not associated with folks like them any more.

Wow, go wiki Chris Hughes and his "husband" Sean Eldridge. These are the "young" people who are literally wreaking havoc on our dear country. They are narcissistic multi-millionaires following in the footsteps of George Soros.

TNR´s been irrelevant for decades.The nice thing is that TNR will drain Hughes´ bank accounts very quickly. #2, Brill´s track record since CourtTV has been miserable as well--CLEAR (pre-approved pass through airport security) was a major fail, in a close to no-brainer market, because it didn´t work in practice. It might have been different if he had a few experienced travel industry operations and marketing people on board, but he was ´rewriting the book´, and you know how that can go.

And as a marketer/communicator in healthcare, I doubt that Mr. Brill has anything new to say, beyond what´s been said for years. (Yes, our healthcare system is breaking down, technological disruption at all levels never had a chance to be absorbed and put into workflows due to this regime´s meddling, and it´s gonna get worse, folks.)

The fact that Time gave 24,000 words to this jerk is also quite telling--that they no longer have in-house writers with anything to say. Henry Luce is now ´Spinny´ -- as in spinning in his grave.

Not long ago, a friend at work told me I absolutely, positively must watch “Broad City” on Comedy Central, saying it was a slacker-infused hilarity.My reaction? Oh no, not another one.The vast wasteland of television has been replaced by an excess of excellence that is fundamentally altering my media diet and threatening to consume my waking life in the process.

The president´s power grab

Recently, a bizarre scene unfolded on the floor of the House of Representatives that would have shocked the framers of the Constitution. In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had decided to go it alone in areas where Congress refused to act to his satisfaction. In a system of shared powers, one would expect an outcry or at least stony silence when a president promised to circumvent the legislative branch. Instead, many senators and representatives erupted in rapturous applause; they seemed delighted at the notion of a president assuming unprecedented and unchecked powers at their

ustin, Texas - From his sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, with roughly a dozen police officers outside, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Saturday that everyone in the world will be just as effectively monitored soon -- at least digitally."The ability to surveil everyone on the planet is almost there and, arguably, will be there in the next couple of years," said Assange, speaking via Skype to a large audience at the South by Southwest Interactive festival here. Assange rocketed to international fame, and infamy, in 2010 after Wikileaks began helping publish secret government documents online.

Sometime during the summer of 1998, a Montana-based journalist named Walter Kirn received an odd request: His friends Harry and Mary Piper, wealthy and religious, had rescued an injured dog and found her a home.His new owner was named Clark Rockefeller, and as badly as he wanted this dog, he had no way to come get her: He lived in New York City, was unwilling to fly commercial, and his private plane was indisposed. His wife, Sandy, was traveling on business, and he wouldn’t make the cross-country drive alone. He didn’t want to hire a stranger to transport the dog. Intrigued,

BEIJING — Malaysian officials investigating the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane Saturday said they were not ruling out terrorism — or any other causes — as reports emerged that two Europeans listed on the passenger manifest were not aboard and may have had their passports stolen.Vietnamese military aircraft participating in a search-and-rescue operation for the Boeing 777, which was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, had spotted two oil slicks in the waters off southern Vietnam, the Associated Press reported. The government said the slicks were each six miles to nine miles long and were

NBC Refutes Claim that Costas’

Bob Costas suffered an eye infection during the Sochi Olympics, but The New York Post‘s Page Six claims to have an exclusive scoop on the reason why: “botched Botox.” That’s right, Page Six claims a source told them that “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” And while that seems a bit far-out there, NBC actually gave a statement to Page Six denying that Costas’ eye infection had anything to do with smoothing out face wrinkles. NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection

Obama, Solipsist

Solipsism. It’s a fancy word that means that the self is the only existing reality and that other entities, including other people, are representations of one’s own self and can have no independent existence. A person who follows this philosophy may believe that others see the world as he does and will behave as he would.It’s a quality often found in narcissists, people who greatly admire themselves — such as a presidential candidate confident that he is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, knows more about policy than his policy directors, and is a better political director than his political

A Russia Today anchor quit live on air Wednesday, declaring she cannot work for a station that “whitewashes the actions of Vladimir Putin.” Liz Wahl, who works in the network’s Washington DC bureau, said her grandparents came to the United States to escape Soviet oppression. “And that is why personally I cannot be part of a station funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the action of Putin,” she said, reading from a statement. “I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this newscast I’m resigning.” Earlier, Ms. Wahl had tweeted:

Last Thursday, a San Diego Police Department detective fired into a home before serving a drug warrant, wounding two men. The detective apparently attempted to knock on a window, causing the window to shatter. She then says she saw one of the men reaching for a gun. There were six people inside the house. None of them had a gun.In searching for more coverage of the story, I found a number of other recent and troubling police shootings in the San Diego area.

Dems turn on Obama nominee;
president loses big vote in Senate
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/5/2014 1:38:02 PM     Post Reply
Senate Democrats killed the filibuster for nominations because they wanted to be able to confirm the president´s choices for top administration positions even if Republicans were united in opposition. From now on, Democrats ruled, nominations would be confirmed by a simple majority vote. With 55 Democrats in the Senate, and as few as 51 required for confirmation, the change virtually guaranteed success for the president´s nominees. But even a rule change was not enough to save the nomination of Debo Adegbile, the former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official who was the president´s choice to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping.

With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.
