I canceled my subscription to the LA Times today. It's become an embarrassment, like someone who wears an obvious toupee. They think they're fooling people, but they're not.
The G-20 was not the only summit that was full of drama; more agonizing than watching the G-20 summit was keeping a tab on the Arab League's summit in Doha.
We are experiencing a crisis of confidence, and I fear that the media are fanning the flames in an effort to save their own skins.
Where is Mr. Gore, Nobel Prize winner and formerly the second most powerful person in the world in all this? How about a public expression of concern?
With the Mexican drug war completely out of control, Afghanistan supplying 90% of the world's opium, and our economy in collapse, the media has finally begun to seriously question our approach.
Barack Obama arrived in London last night for the start of his eight-day, five-country trip. He has begun meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon ...
"I am ashamed at getting my stimulus bill passed so quickly. Republicans, those masters of bipartisanship, offered their sincere efforts to delay this bill for months and, I admit, I ignored them."
