Ombudsman back on "Countdown"

OLBERMANN: It turns out that the administration is not just getting criticism from the Democrats and from certain Republicans, but it’s now been slammed by, of all people, Faith Hill and her husband, Timothy McGraw. Both of them, the country singers, bashing the president for not doing enough to help the victims of the hurricane in the South. Now, is that it? Is that the final nail? Do you know you’re in trouble when country music stars go after you? Are they going to write a song about him now?

MILBANK: They’re already singing a new tune up on Capitol Hill.

It’s, How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away?

But it’s a grim sign for our president, as if he needs any more.

OLBERMANN: A chastened Dana Milbank, national political reporter of “The Washington Post,” not singing that song for us, as he might have previously before the ombudsman came after him. Thanks for joining us, Dana.

MILBANK: Thank you, Keith.
I got quite a chuckle when I saw this on "Countdown."

We haven't forgotten about you either, Ms. Howell. But it's always good when the likes of Keith Olbermann keeps you in the public eye.

Go read Debbie's latest ombudsman column, which was probably ghost-written by Jim Brady.

If that isn't bad enough http://blog.washingtonpost.com/washpostblog/2006/02/comments_welcome_1.html got spammed by a Chinese shoe-selling spambot.

And, there's been NO official WaPo presence on the blog at all except for one notice they deleted an "offensive" comment shortly after they reopened commenting.

The other blogs aren't much better. The http://blogs.washingtonpost.com/thinktanktown "Ron Nessen Reports" (former President Ford administration buffoon) is just another Republican forum for lying, proselytizing and general hackery.

Pathetic! Truly, PATHETIC! I hope the WaPo stockholders revolt!

I left this at the WaPo blog today. I don't know how long it will be before the censors find it, but it's bound to disappear in spite of the lack of obscenities. No doubt they'll consider it a personal attack:

***************** Begin Post *****************

It's now been two months since Debbie Howell published the erroneous article about Jack Abramoff that started all this. It remains uncorrected to this day.

Meanwhile, this "vibrant community", to coin a phrase from Mr. Brady's whinefest "Blog Rage", is more closely resembling on unplanned, overbuilt ghost town, with spam posts subbing as tumbleweeds. The only thing vibrant about this community has been the conversations we've had amongst ourselves, which we can have lots of places. This page has been allowed to grow to unbelievable lengths. It takes minutes to render on one of my computers.

Mr. Brady, if this is your idea of using the Internet to connect with your readers, you truly know nothing about working online. You can work on it another ten years and you still won't get the idea. You have to engage with your users, not leave them their own bit of digital wall to spray paint on. Until you do that, pages like this will remain a sad monument to your stupidity.

And yes, it's really been two months.

"Engage" is a word for which Mr. Brady has not figured out an appropriate action. His ego won't let go of his mind.

Taylor,

Ego's one of the chief causes of stupidity, isn't it?

In a later post on the blog, someone noted it took them a week to remove the spam from the site. This might mean that a protest will remain there for several days before being noticed. It certainly can't be easy to scan that huge web page for words or phrases that aren't already in the filters.

Guess we'll see how the next month goes.

Once again, the WaPo strikes a blow for "fair and balanced" journalism.

************ Submission to WaPo Blog begins *************

Here's another example of the WaPo's new dedication to journalism. In today's Post, Shailagh Murray writes:

For months the Democrats have resisted calls from their liberal base to more aggressively challenge President Bush.

So, which liberals would that be, you might ask? John D. at Americablog did just that.

http://americablog.blogspot.com/2006/03/washington-post-sloppy-journalism-stop.html

Later, Josh Feit at The Stranger wrote that where she got it was apparently from a Republican party press release by Diane Tebelius, the new chairwoman.

http://www.thestranger.com/blog/archives/2006/03/12-18.php#a004818

Once again, this is sloppy journalism at the least, and shilling for a political party at worst. Real journalists would be ashamed. Too bad there are so few left at the Washington Post.

************ Submission to WaPo Blog ends ***************

I've reformatted in hopes of making the links clickable, or at least cut-n-paste-able. I also corrected two typos.

I should clarify that Diane Telebius is the GOP chair of Washington State. This is clearly a standard GOP talking point.

By the way, what are the names of those 80 people occupying those newsroom positions to be cut?
