Yes, that’s right, your favorite conservative college student who runs your favorite conservative college blog will be on bloggers’ row for CPAC this year!
This news is both exciting and amazing. I’ll be there for Dialog New Media the company I’m currently interning for and will be sure to make regular posts here and at probably at NewsBusters too. I’m even going to try and liveblog a couple events.
Make sure and check out the schedule of events for CPAC and feel free to email me to request a live blog for any of the events. I’ll do my best to get to all the events you suggest.
Also, if you’re going to CPAC make sure you stop by bloggers’ row and say hello… I’ll be the youngest and least famous one there I’m sure.
The Twitter accounts of President-elect Barack Obama, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, Britney Spears, Fox News and 29 others were hacked Monday according to the microblog site, leading to false and inappropriate messages being posted on their accounts.
HOLY CRAP UPDATE: You know… it’s one thing for miss guided supporters to start pawning off their kids to Obama but it’s something entirely different for a presidential campaign to actively try and recruit kids as campaign tools. But honestly this Kids for Obama initiative goes beyond that to pure indoctrination on a level that terrifies me. Read the latest on Kids for Obama
So, Bradley Jacobs, the senior editor of Us Weekly appeared on Fox News’ American Election HQ at 5:55 today to defend the hit piece they slapped on their increasingly worthless (and I mean by the minute) cover page. And as you may have already guessed, it was atrocious.
But, as the clearly unprepared, stumbling, and bumbling hack, Bradley Jacobs, fumbled his way through the first half of the interview… ok, actually the entire interview… I couldn’t help but be reminded of the scene in “Fun with Dick and Jane” where Jim Carey’s character is taken completely by surprise and gets utterly man-handled (or in this case woman-handled, gosh I’m so clever). I couldn’t help but laugh a little bit… (I can’t say the same of the rest of the content of the interview)
But don’t take my word for it… compare the videos yourself:
UPDATE: Do my eyes deceive me or did Us Weekly wipe (looks like their comments section is back up and running now… simple glitch or something more?) their site clean of the 5600 (looks like there’s almost 6000 comments now) negative comments they received on their hit piece? (here’s a cached version of the page so you can get an idea of the comments, you know… in case the comments section suddenly goes down again)
