President Giant Ego

When visiting The View (instead of meeting with UN envoys or let's say some guy named Netanyahu) President said; " I understand that I'm just here as eye candy for you guys".  Say Mr. Narcissicism how about spending time instead finding out how our Ambassador to Libya and 3 other Americans were brutally murdered last week.

Main Stream Media - not a peep, move on, nothing to see here.

New York Environmentalists Explain Why Fracking is Bad

Most hilariously, the enviro-activists have demanded that state officials explore an alleged link between fracking and — we kid you not — syphilis.
They argue that a drilling boom would draw an influx of male workers from other states who would engage in activities of a kind that would spread sexually transmitted diseases.
They also contend that a boom would trigger a housing crunch, adding to homelessness and the health ailments that go along with it.
And that increased truck traffic would not only lead to more road fatalities, but would also — again, no kidding — discourage people from getting the outdoor exercise they need to stay fit.
This is absurd. If New York starts saying no to entire industries on the grounds they might trigger population changes, rising home prices and truck traffic, it might as well turn out the lights.

Well I admit I just wasn't paying enough attention to these issues.

Global Sea Ice Has Increased

What? But the Arctic sea ice has melted to a scary level, right? Global warming is going to flood the beaches of Florida soon, right. Not so fast, scaremongers.

Day 256 Antarctic ice is the highest ever for the date, and the eighth highest daily reading ever recorded. All seven higher readings occurred during the third week of September, 2007 – the week of the previous Arctic record minimum.  

And total Global Sea ice is up

Pravda is a more open media outlet than our Main Stream Media.  

Univision Teaches US Media About Balanced Journalism

Univision decided not to rollover and serve softballs to Obama in a recent televised interview. They asked questions about Obama's promise to provide comprehensive immigration policy in his first year and why Eric Holder was not fired for the Fast and Furious gun walking policy that ended in hundreds of dead Mexicans.  This was not the fun type of Letterman or The View interviews that typically protect him from tough questions.

Journalism: The big media haven't exactly distinguished themselves with their lazy, biased coverage of President Obama. So it's nice to see a media outlet that asks tough questions and informs its viewers. Univision, take a bow.
No doubt, President Obama entered the Univision studio last Thursday for a televised candidate's appearance thinking it would be a cakewalk.
