A Tale of Three Apologies: Ed Schultz, Cal Thomas, and

  Compare the difference between apologies of Rush Limbaugh and those of Ed Schultz and Cal Thomas: Schultz and Thomas both appeared publicly to make their apologies (Schultz's on air apology to Laura Ingraham and to the public lasted approximately 10 minutes) and made a telephone call to the "victium" to make a personal apology. Schultz took a week of unpaid leave from his television show. Limbaugh did none of those things. He really did not apologize for what he said, only for using ... Full Story

Limbaugh, how many listeners

      A Challenge to Rush: Prove Your Ratings Cenk Uygur Host of The Young Turks  How many listeners does Rush Limbaugh have? Well, in the press there are only two numbers you'll ever see -- 20 million or 15 million. Those are large numbers, so that is why Limbaugh is taken seriously and is believed to be influential.

The Keystone XL Flim-Flam

  The Keystone XL Flim-Flam  Jim Hightower For Rep. Allen West, the skyrocketing price of gasoline is not just a policy matter, it's a personal pocketbook issue.

It's hard to feel the pain of a whining, $174,000-a-year congress-critter, but millions of regular Americans really are ... Full Story

Blunt amendment killed

          Birth control exemption bill, the ‘Blunt amendment,’ killed in Senate By N.C. Aizenman By a largely party-line vote, the Senate on Thursday blocked a move to exempt virtually any employer with moral objections from the Obama administration’s controversial birth control health coverage rule.
