Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I don’t think you can do enough justice to the phrase “if it bleeds, it leads.” I also don’t think you can do enough justice to the disapprobation you should hurl the way of the broadcast fabled news networks that rushed to judgment during the horrific shooting Tuesday in the naval yard. Folks, they are just drawn to death. They are drawn to destruction. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Did you know you can get tomorrow's news today? That's the way the news business works today. They receive their editorial submissions in the evening for tomorrow's print edition... and go ahead and publish them on the web that evening or night. But that doesn't always mean that news is reliable. For instance... this article on the NY Slimes by James Traub is a a half right half wrong review of the demise of the Federalists, then links that story to the quickening demise of the Republicans. For the record, the outrage hurled at Federalists was not over demography but was over nationalism, hijacking the Constitution over actual federalism. But don't take our word for it, check the sources.
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I have often said that the internet has made us dumber. All one has to do to see evidence of this is go through your email box on any given day. Look at the things that are forwarded to you. Just sample some of them and read some of them. You will ultimately find that many of them are, at best, urban legends. Most of them are afactual and ahistorical. Because you took the time to read them, you were probably distracted from doing something that is actually productive.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - "Sources? We don't need no stinkin' sources on the internet!" That seems to be the motto of many so-called "journalists" online (also called tweeters or bloggers) who simply repeat what the saw or heard on The Blaze or Glenn Beck without actually checking any of their facts. The internet has given us a wealth of information but it has also made us very lazy when it comes to checking that information to see if it is true or not. So the next time you get a forwarded e-mail from one of your friends with hundreds of addresses in the "To:" box, either take the time to check the "facts" contained within that e-mail... or just delete it.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - We’re confronted again with our own arrogance, it seems to me. We’re the smart ones because we know what the real unemployment numbers are and we know what the real state of jobs is. We make an awful lot of assumptions, and I think we do so at the peril of actual good and honest debate. To say that no one is out there saying it -- you’re not the first person to say this to me -- I just think is preposterous. Check out today's transcript for the rest...
