Case in point, Allen West, the retired Amy Lt. Colonel who last month was elected the first African American representative from the state of Florida in 134 years.
At around 12 p.m. ET yesterday, the ThinkProgress blog cited Marie’s Dec. 7 interview with the incoming U.S. congressman, namely his position that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is guilty of espionage —and that the American media is complicit in that capital offense.
Allen: Harshly critical of U.S. news outlets that enabled WikiLeaks' classified-documents dump.
Several hours later, CBS News followed suit, as reporter Lucy Madison wrote that “West called for the censorship of media outlets publishing information obtained by WikiLeaks.”
She also cited comments from his BlogTalkRadio interview:
“‘Regardless of whether or not you think this really does cause any harm, the fact [is] that, here is an individual that is not an American citizen, first and foremost, [who has] for whatever reason gotten his hands on classified American material and has put it out there in the public domain,’ West said, speaking of Continue reading →
Every now and then, we meet a host whose day job makes us say, “Wow.” And in the case of Priscilla Dames, we were not only wowed, but humbled by her commitment to her cause.
It seems the host of BlogTalkRadio’s Conflict Corner made a similar impression on her hometown paper.
"My training focused on making them understand that their fight is valid but they must learn how to get what they want without killing," Priscilla (above) tells the Times of her students.
In a story in the current edition of the South Florida Times, headlined “Miamian Teaches Reconciliation in Nigeria,” reporter Juliana Accioly writes:
“Nelson Mandela, the first South African president elected in a fully representative democratic election, once observed that ‘If you want to make peace with your enemy you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.’
“Those words resonate with Priscilla Dames, owner of Wingspan Seminars, a training and conflict resolution company— so much so that she was hired to lead a two-week rehabilitation program in Nigeria for former guerrilla fighters.”
It’s tough being Lawrence O’Donnell—what with knowing more about politics than many of his guests.
Interviewed on Mr. Media, the host of MSNBC’s new political-commentary show, The Last Word—who previously served as a guest host on Countdown with Keith Olbermann—‘fesses up a long-simmering frustration.
“Frequently—because I worked in politics, because I worked in government—in the past, as a host, I’ve been sitting there knowing more than my guest, and I am being forced to ask a question of someone who knows less than I do,” Lawrence, who formerly served as staff director of the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance and legislative aide to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, tells host Bob Andelman.
Lawrence: Finally got his own soapbox. (But will he be able to get more sagacious guests?)
‘There’s an awkward posture to that that I think we got away with, thanks to my acting skills,” he adds.
Lawrence knows whence he speaks on the acting front, having been a producer and writer for NBC’s The West Wing (for which he won an Emmy), as well as creator and executive producer of Continue reading →
Bristol Palin may be liberated enough to have had a kid out of wedlock at age 18, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be flashing any naughty bits on Dancing with the Stars.
Interviewed onEdgy Conservative, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s now-19-year-old daughter chats about competing on ABC’s hit reality series, Season 11 of which gets under way Sept. 20.
"I highly doubt I would," Bristol (above with Tripp) tells us of running for office in the future, "because I've seen such negative aspects of it."
“People have been talking so much about how I’m going to wear the most modest things—and I’ve been criticized for that,” she tells hosts Nicole Coulter and Amy Thoms.
“But I’m not gonna show that much skin. That’s just not who I am.
“I want to be covered up, and the costumes are definitely gonna have to be tailored to how I am and how I dress,” continues Bristol, whose competition will include such vixens as Audrina Patridge, Jennifer Grey and Margaret Cho.
The former veep: Angling to get back to the Cowboy State asap.
You gotta hand it to Dick Cheney. Less that two months after doctors implanted a pump in his heart to compensate for increasing congestive heart failure, the 69-year-old former vice president—who has had five heart attacks over the past 32 years —is hard at work on his memoirs, while gearing up for some Continue reading →
