Why "Contract for the American Dream" is a sham (Van Jones, MoveOn, Rebuild the Dream) - 08/10/11

... Pink, Economic Policy Institute, DailyKos, People for the American Way, Center for Economic and Policy Research CEPR, and the Institute for Policy Studies. There are several more listed on their site. [2] Someone who's an actual "immigrant" (i.e., of the legal variety) already has a "clear path to citizenship". The ones who don't have that "clear path" are illegal aliens. Thus, they're trying to...

Joshua Holland of Alternet doesn't understand fundamental American concepts regarding speech - 02/27/11

... comments at TalkingPointsMemo and DailyKos. In fact, out of all the comments at those sites and dozens of tweets that I saw, only one (1) self-described liberal condemned the attacks. That is, as they might say on the Internet, an example of Civics fail. It's also a great opportunity for Koch defenders to correctly portray their opponents as lil' fascists and to shame any nationally-known person...

Dennis Welch, Kos, Amanda Terkel, Steve Benen, Ben Smith, Ben Frumin smear Jan Brewer over quote - 06/02/10

Needless to say, he's deliberately...

Misleading Lake Research, America's Voice immigration poll (DailyKos) - 05/25/10

... Voice. It's promoted by Kos of DailyKos at [1]. And, one wonders what the game is: why promote misleading polls when all they do is give a false sense that something's popular when it isn't? Since many of the consumers of the poll will be on Kos' side, why is he trying to mislead them? Or, is it just that he can't figure out how the poll is misleading? The only question we need to look at is...

Experts: how bogus is the Daily Kos/Research 2000 Poll? (oversamples 60+, males, southerners?) - 02/02/10

DailyKos and Research 2000 have a new poll of Republicans out (link) that's (unfortunately) best summarized by the Dave Weigel headline "Poll: Many Republicans Believe Obama is Racist Socialist Who Was Elected by ACORN" (link). The problem with DailyKos' attempt to make the GOP is that they appear to have oversampled those over 60 years of age, males, and southerners, skewing the results. I'm not...

In other words, they aren't really costing those sites much in the way of credibility since they're mostly just an echo chamber. And, they're actually helping those sites by giving them valid links (I put a nofollow tag on the last link in...

Poll: 86% support immigration "reform" (as described). I.e., MSM lies are working, opponents need to work smarter (Kos, Frank Sharry) - 06/04/09

Over at the DailyKos, Kos informs us [1] that Frank Sharry's "America's Voice" commissioned Benenson Strategy Group to conduct a poll about comprehensive immigration reform. According to them, 86% of respondents support "reform". The fact that their description of that "reform" is highly misleading doesn't make that number any less surprising. While I tend to suspect that there might be something...

Kos gets one thing right: the rightwing blogosphere is mostly just inept chatter - 11/19/08

... Moulitsas Zuniga - the Kos in DailyKos - has finally got one thing right. From the article "Right-wing bloggers see their chance" (link): While conservative bloggers talk about making a difference for their party, they have yet to back up their talk with action, said Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the liberal Daily Kos blog. Moulitsas, also a columnist for The Hill, boasts about how the...

Then, a prankster tried to glom onto the story, pretending that he was that staffer...

That also discusses two other MSM reports from the same rally that described a much more placid event than Milbank's invention.

UPDATE: I don't know who did it, but it looks like "Bill Hawkins" - someone who is not me - posted the second video to BHO's site: my.barackobama.com/page/community/blog/billhawkins If only I knew who "Bill Hawkins" was.

Barack Obama lies about Rush Limbaugh in Spanish-language ads - 09/17/08

... shows the level of thinking at DailyKos by noting that Rush says the quotes were taken out of context... then using other quotes in an attempt to show that Rush is a racist and without dealing with the quotes in the ad. Whether that's an intentional attempt at distraction or an issue with the thinking processes of "shovelhood" isn't clear. Some commenters don't care about the ad being misleading...

DailyKos' Netroots Nation has Mexican government-linked group - 07/15/08

... Austin, Texas this weekend for DailyKos' Netroots Nation, a convention formerly known as YearlyKos. A search of the site shows just one session relating to immigration, called nutrootsily enough "How to Win the Immigration Debate and Beat Back ICE's Emerging Police State" (netrootsnation.org/node/864). Put on your diving cap and try to follow their logic: With Congress held hostage to a vocal...

Seven reasons Kos (DailyKos) can't be trusted on immigration (+Quinnipiac University poll) - 03/27/08

Can you trust Kos of DailyKos (Markos Moulitsas Zuniga) on immigration? No, you can't. For some of the reasons why, take a look at "The big immigration backlash in Connecticut" (dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/3/27/113830/115). 1. He fails to note that, before working for the city of New Haven, Kica Matos headed a group that is/was working with the Mexican government to pass out Matricula Consular...

Kos: I'm a "Libertarian Democrat" - 06/07/06

... "A libertarian? You mean, like DailyKos?") So in practical terms, what does a Libertarian Dem look like? A Libertarian Dem rejects government efforts to intrude in our bedrooms and churches. A Libertarian Dem rejects government "Big Brother" efforts, such as the NSA spying of tens of millions of Americans. A Libertarian Dem rejects efforts to strip away rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights...

Kos/Krempasky: support free speech online! - 03/09/06

Markos Moulitsas Zuniga (DailyKos) and Michael Krempasky (RedState) have sent a letter (dailykos . com/story/2006/3/9/9134/22058) to Congress urging them to support H.R. 1606, the Online Freedom of Speech Act. Just as a small bit of irony, back in 2003 I was banned from leaving comments at DailyKos, after I pointed out that Kos' source wasn't what he implied it was. And, a couple days ago I...

They can't ban all of us - 04/02/03

... banned from leaving comments at DailyKos. Since he hasn't responded to my email, I don't know the exact reason, but I can surmise it has something to do with the comments to this post (dailykos . com/archives/002198.html). That post features a picture of a (supposed) Iraq girl injured by U.S. missiles in Baghdad. Kos claims that the picture comes from "the Al Jazeera." However, the link provided...
