All right, you’ve slept in long enough. Brad Jacobson of MediaBloodhound here. Saturday. Last day. Music about to play over parting words. Thanks to everyone for your generous feedback and submissions (sorry if I didn’t get yours in there). We can still meet a few times each week over at my place. (I cordially invite you to subscribe as I don’t post daily at MBH.) OK, let’s inhale some links:
Dashiell delivers his own Swiftian magic.
The Manifest Destiny in New Orleans continues (at least John Edwards is lending his voice to fight the good fight).
Glenn Beck on life support? Say it ain’t so! The guy who compared Al Gore to Adolph Hitler. (Polar bears everywhere rejoice.)
Hawke and Dove slip bamboo shoots up the fingernails of the torture debate.
Sensen No Sen is all over FCC Chairman Kevin Martin’s stealthy pursuit to relax media ownership rules.
Spineless Dems walking: Chris Floyd (h/t Cursor) decries the latest capitulation; Susie Madrak asks, “When do we say ‘enough’?” (h/t Kevin Hayden, who leads the chant: “Dump Jay today!”)
Norman Solomon on America’s “human rights daze.”
And exhale. Finally, a special thanks to Mike, Nicole and John for tossing me the keys for the week. (Psst…inside scoop: they’re really good people.) It’s been a pleasure, folks. Peace.
