George Jones and 'The Star Spangled Banner'

Never in my life have I heard a rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" that's come close. As so many other have, Jones did not use the song's range to show off his own. Jones' interpretation was simple, eloquent, understated, and powerful enough to remain in my admittedly awful memory after almost 20 years. Apr 26, 2013 8:13 AM PT

The Media Matters Frenzy to Discredit Breitbart's Pigford Investigation

Friday morning, Breitbart's cause on behalf of those black farmers who had been legitimately discriminated against was fully vindicated on page A1 of the New York Times. Breitbart News' editor-in-chief has more on that here, but right now Media Matters is standing naked with egg all over their corrupt faces, and let us hope the rest of the media takes notice.

Jake Tapper's CNN Ratings On the Rise

TV Newser reports that "The Lead with Jake Tapper" is "up +28% in total viewers and up +62% in the demo compared to the same period last year on CNN." The 4pm ET program now averages 689k total viewers and 209k in the 25-54 demo. We'll have to wait and see how things look after the news settles down, but this jump is still worthy of note.

Poynter Rips Politico's Over-Hyped New York Times 'Scoop'

"Abramson is 'brusque.' Once she made someone change a photo on the homepage, and she wasn’t nice about it. Her voice is unpleasant. She’s not in the newsroom as much as some staffers would like. And … that’s basically the prosecution’s case here." Apr 24, 2013 7:26 AM PT
