Three New Ads Hit Michelle Nunn in Georgia Senate Race

Oct 24, 2014 7:40 PM PT

The Ending Spending Action Fund has upped the ante in Georgia with a new $1.3 million ad buy, hitting Democrat Michelle Nunn across three fronts: her deference to an ever more unpopular Obama;  Nunn's ultimately embarrassing attempt to use former President George H.W. Bush in a PR stunt; and Congressman Jack Kingston's endorsement of Nunn's opponent, Republican David Perdue.

This latest ad buy is in addition to the PAC's two million dollar ad buy in Georgia just ten days ago.

NY Times Undercuts NIH Director's Claim on Page A1 but Never Mentions Him

Oct 24, 2014 12:42 PM PT

A story published on the NY Times' front page directly undercuts comments made by NIH Director Francis Collins two weeks ago, but the story never mentions Collins or his misleading statement.

The NY Times story, which appears on AI today, is titled "Ebola Vaccine, Ready for Test, Sat on the Shelf." The story outlines two reasons why promising Ebola vaccines were still waiting for human trials:

Its development stalled in part because Ebola is rare, and until now, outbreaks had infected only a few hundred people at a time. But experts also acknowledge that the absence of follow-up on such a promising candidate reflects a broader failure to produce medicines and vaccines for diseases that afflict poor countries. Most drug companies have resisted spending the enormous sums needed to develop products useful mostly to countries with little ability to pay.

"Consulate officials said the statement had not intended to downplay the severity of the incident, and that its authors wanted to focus the employees' attention and give warning of the protests," reports Ynet News.

The 'War on Women' chokes out in a cloud of hypocrisy and failure

Oct 24, 2014 10:47 AM PT

In response to For Democrats, 'The Republican War On Women' Is Now Literally A Punchline (Video):

The "War on Women" was also literally a punch line for CNN anchor Carol Costello, who laughed herself sick over audio of Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol telling the police how a man threw her to the ground and dragged her around while screaming sexual epithets at her.  Costello is refusing to apologize for drooling over the audio as one of the most amusing things her network has ever aired.  The idea that she still has a job is absolutely mind-blowing.
