Visits to the veterinary emergency room for pets are down 40%.
They don't stop needing this service. But, in the Obama economy, cash-strapped taxpayers opt for euthanasia rather than costly pet-care ER visits.
Another example of the new normal.
Had this taken place under a Republican, you can imagine the outcry.

Help me imagine what the outcry would be.

Notice the use of past-tense.  They confess to bias but then continue to lie about it.  This is why I don't believe a single word a lefty vomits unless I verify it first.

Arrest warrant filed for Rahm's Chicago press thug
Thomas Lifson

In one of the most outrageous examples ever of liberal media doing the dirty work for a liberal politician, last Monday Jay Levine, a reporter for the CBS affiliate in Chicago assaulted WIND radio talk show host as he tried to ask penetrating questions of Rahm Emanuel. Dana Loesh wrote up a good account on Big Journalism:

I am not a fan of Juan Williams...he is not an intellectual powerhouse, and he defends scum democrats no matter the crime. 

But I find the irony deliciously sweet when the liberal:
1) speaks honestly
2) speaks truthfully
and then
3) gets punished for it by trappings of his own party that he tolerates every single day.

Bye bye Juan!  Maybe the mean old Fox News will save your a*s and your phony career!

Driving the liberal media out of business.  Music to my ears!

To Hell With the Press

by Mark McKinnon Info
Mark McKinnon

Rick Perry won an unprecedented third term as Texas governor while actively shunning the press corps. Mark McKinnon on the GOP's trendy tactic—and how newspapers are fighting back.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry beat Democratic challenger Bill White, the former mayor of Houston, for an historic and unprecedented third four-year term by a whopping 13 points, a margin that surprised even his own pollster.

But what is really surprising is the way Perry won. Sure, he did all the traditional things well. He raised a ton of money. He honed a clear and compelling message and communicated it aggressively with great discipline. And he galvanized the Republican base. But, he also did something shockingly unconventional. He told the press to take a hike.

The NYT has "principles" when it suits them.  Slippery, slimy, scum.


The NYT published details in 2005 about US efforts to eavesdrop on Al Qaeda, and is publishing info from the stolen Wikileaks Iraq messages, but they they wouldn’t publish the ClimateGate emails.

Mr. Revkin, your selective bias, and the bias of your newspaper (and your Dot Earth Blog) is screaming loudly for all to hear.

Politico: Jay Carney Paid $270k by Time in 2009 While Working for Obama Administration

Alex Fitzsimmons's picture

Jay Carney just assumed his new post as White House press secretary yesterday, but he already finds himself embroiled in controversy.

Despite leaving Time magazine shortly after the 2008 election to work for the Obama administration, Carney continued collecting payments from his former employer in 2009, Politico reported today.

According to newly released financial disclosure forms, Carney was paid $270,000 by Time while serving as Vice President Joe Biden's communications director, consisting of a $58,000 bonus for work during the 2008 presidential campaign and a $212,000 severance payment

Why doesn't the mainstream media cover this since more than twice as many people were killed (and no flags at half staff)?

Is it because most if not all of the victims were black? We know that liberals only want blacks around if they can use them as victims to further their causes...

Or is it because our president supports dismembering children before, during, and after birth?

Yes, sheeple...enjoy the history lesson.  And I hope you literally choke on it...

 In Praise of Schadenfreude
By  Michael Walsh
May 14, 2013 5:25 PM
 

This is hilarious:

    Reporters across The Associated Press are outraged over the Justice Department’s sweeping seizure of staff phone records – and they say such an intrusion could chill their relationships with confidential sources.

    In conversations with POLITICO on Tuesday, several AP staffers in Washington, D.C., described feelings of anger and frustration with the DOJ and with the Obama administration in general.

    “People are pretty mad — mad that government has not taken what we do seriously,” one reporter said on Tuesday. “When the news broke yesterday…people were outraged and disgusted. No one was yelling and screaming, but it was like, “Are you kidding me!?”

Welcome to gangland, kids. As I wrote a couple of months ago over at PJ Media:

    The Obama administration, I believe, will come to rue the day it declared war on the dean of the Washington press corps, Bob Woodward of Watergate fame. Now, I have never met Woodward, although I’ve been friendly with Carl Bernstein, the other half of the Watergate duo, for many years. But from what I know of both men, and of the journalists of their generation, I believe them to be good old-fashioned reporters for whom the story is everything. And if this is the moment when the last remnants of what used to be the American journalistic establishment dig in their heels and finally draw the line on rank partisanship – well, it’s about good and goddamned time.

    It’s axiomatic today that “mainstream” journalists are corrupt tools of the liberal ascendancy, ethical roundheels who finally found Mr. Dreamboat in Barack Hussein Obama and have spent the years since 2008 lying on their backs and moaning. And that’s partly true. Obama was the culmination of everything they had wished for since the civil-rights movement, which to journalists of a certain age is the equivalent of Mao’s Long March, the event by which they define themselves. . . .

    All those things are true, and yet – speaking as someone who began his journalistic career in 1971 – they are more true of the younger generation(s) of journalists, kiddies like the Juicebox Mafia ideologues masquerading as reporters, for whom leftist attitude is everything, especially when it is put to the service of the Democratic Party. That is to say, I hope and pray that some of us old coots still believe in the reporter’s core mission: to find out the truth and publish it. Period. That the thrill lies in the hunt, and it doesn’t matter which variety of big game you’re hunting as long as you bag it.

Why is anybody surprised by the tactics of this administration? Starting with the 2008 campaign, some of us have been warning about the fundamental nature of a crew whose explicit goal was the fundamental transformation of the United States of America. Today, as scandal piles upon scandal, the press finally seems to be waking up to the fact that it’s been had.

In the interests of assisting my younger media colleagues, may I simply point them to the history of Chicago under (as it happens) the last Republican ever elected mayor there, Big Bill Thompson, whose reign coincided with the Capone era and, of course, the very model of the modern corrupt journalist, Jake Lingle. Any resemblance to figures currently active in Chicago and Washington is entirely intentional.

You know what they say: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Enjoy the history lesson, with this switch: first time farce, second time tragedy. Karl Marx, wrong again — as usual.
