Quote of the Day – 01.12.09


QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Edward Lazear, chairman of George Bush’s Council of Economic Advisers, on the administration’s economic track record:

“It does look like a great eight years, aside from the last quarter, unfortunately.”

Actually, he’s wrong: it wasn’t a great eight years, regardless of whether or not you count the final quarter. But this was still too good a quote not to memorialize.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
