Talk About Classic

Home - by - November 12, 2012 - 10:06 America/New_York - 7 Comments

Here is an article from William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection. It’s an article about Politico bellyaching because conservatives don’t like them.


You know how much I dislike Politico, going way back.

Politico practices a particularly pernicious anti-Republican, anti-conservative, and anti-Tea Party brand of reporting … the relentless attempt to marginalize under the guise of news.  Politico is no better than The Washington Post (from which its founders came) or The New York Times, but because it is not legacy media, it is not viewed with the same caution.

One of today’s lead articles by co-founder Jonathan Martin, The GOP’s media cocoon, is classic.


You see the italicized part? That was a A LINK TO POLITICO.

STOP IT! Attribution is necessary to avoid copyright infringement. LINKAGE IS A COURTESY and not necessary.

STOP LINKING (and giving revenue) to the left.

    Exactly right. They cannot stay on the air with talk radio because no one will advertise with them. One thing we can do IMMEDIATELY to protest the left is to not frequent their websites and not to buy their products.

    Support conservative businesses so they can keep their doors open and boycott all liberal run establishments.

    Well if I knew you felt that strongly about it wouldn’t have put that Polutico link on the ‘ignore the Tea Party thread’.

    I don’t like giving them clicks either but I figure we need to somehow keep an eye on the bastards, and I don’t trust the so-called pundits to do it for us. Any suggestions?

    A link here or there doesn’t bother me. I do it myself.
    It’s the reflexive, automatic, unthinking link that has to be re”thunk.” Especially with the really large sites.
    I’m afraid, though, that no one is really serious about this.
    It’s like rooting for your team as a diehard fan, and then you see the opponents yucking it up and back slapping and laughing together before the game.
    It’s a betrayal.

    On a related note, are there search engines I can use that aren’t controlled by leftists? I don’t want to patronize Yahoo or Google.

    I use Bing search engine. Google was messing around with Glenn Beck’s broadcast. Incidentally, next time, Mr. Beck, please don’t go on saying “Gingrich can’t win it, Gingrich can’t win it.” In my mind, he stood a better chance than the one the GOP offered up. They just don’t seem to want conservatism at all, even though the Tea Party gave them a victory in 2010. NoBoehner!!!
