Rachel Maddow: When Will Journalists Be Allowed Into Gaza?

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy Correspondent for the Rachel Maddow Show, Richard Engel says that he was told by an Israeli government official that right now, Israel does not want foreign journalists in the Gaza strip reporting on the humanitarian crisis, mostly because it would reflect poorly on […]

Senator Norm Coleman is a Such a Buster

Great Moments in US Senate History: George Galloway Prepares to Anally Probe Norm Coleman (2005). News reports indicate that incumbent Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman’s lead over “comedian” Al Franken has slimmed to a mere 5 votes. A canvassing board undergoing a recount is deciding whether to count previously discounted ballots. Though I am no fan […]

Tell ‘em, Keith.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnHyy8gkNEE] A constitution is not something you can just change at will with contradictory additions in order to target minorities.

FOX News Parties Like It’s 1991

“blah, blah, blah…” Refusing to hide their pathetic desperation, FOX ran another vacuous story about Rashid Khalidi. This time, they cleverly confused the tense in the headline to mislead potential readers into thinking it may actually be a relevant story.
