"I say Boy, I don't know who let you and your friend on the course but I still haven't gotten my Manhattan and Lovey is still waiting for her Old Fashioned. Now cease and desist and get back to work, chop chop."

The mainstream media is now where Fox News was on day one of Obama's presidency.  This will get out of hand.  It will get out of hand and we'll be lucky to live through hole 18.

And Krauthammer will continue to be right. He will get out of hand, he will get out of hand and we'll be lucky to live through it

So does Chuckles also criticize the right-wing media when they biatch about Obama going on vacation? Never mind, I already know the answer.
 
2013-02-19 08:37:58 AM  
1. "Transparency" issue the media will get butthurt over and actually cover (golfing, going on vacation)
2. Transparency issues that deal with matters that actually impact human beings (drone strikes, rendition).

Pick one.

Wheel, I guess he's finally snapped back to reality.

/I am a terrible person.

Heh... That's the first time Wheels hasn't sounded like a complete partisan shill in a very long time.

Oh dear, I hope Tiger doesn't take a sip of water between holes. he'll be doomed. DOOMED I SAY!

FTFA:  White House Correspondents Association president and Fox News correspondent Ed Henry and others have criticized Obama for lack of access during his time in Florida over the long weekend.

I think I may have found the problem for ya, Chuck.

I liked the comment about marital advice.  It almost made Kraut sound human.

Uh oh, someone better dig deeper into this golfing thing... if Krauthammer says this is a non-story, since he is always wrong about absolutely everything ever, there must be a scandal of historic proportions just waiting to be discovered.
 
2013-02-19 09:28:14 AM  
This isn't a big deal, it shouldn't be a big deal, who gives a fark?
 
2013-02-19 09:41:01 AM  
If you are for making this a scandal, please stand up now.

Given that CK is saying its a non-story, I think that I'm now concerned about it just on general principles.
 
2013-02-19 09:53:56 AM  
The press corps is mad at Obama because he's basically cut them out.  With social media, he really doesn't need them anymore except for the occasionally fluff interview.  They're so used to being the gatekeepers that they don't know how to be bystanders.

The real problem with Obama golfing with Tiger is there were TWO black guys on the course at one time, and its ruining the value of the membership shares.
 
2013-02-19 10:16:20 AM  
This has no legs whatsoever.
 
2013-02-19 10:30:29 AM  
With stories like this, FOXNEWS has effectively crippled their own chances of being a credible news site. They will continue their downhill roll from first to worst, taking a swan dive in ratings.

Very brave of Charles to stick his neck out like this, though.  This must have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

Not to mention that this administration is almost leak free. Muck the Fedia.

There are six words I never expected to see in that configuration.

Looks like ol' Ironsides is going to be rollin' a little dirty on Fox News for a little while.

Charles Krauthammer to the Bleach Blonde Bimbo Brigade on Faux:  "You're gonna look pretty funny sucking my dick without teeth."

POW, in the KISSA!

You should blame Obama?
 
2013-02-19 11:48:47 AM  
Wasn't this guy getting bent because Obama was playing golf in his spare time rather than spending every waking hour at his desk?

same reason they listen to you, Dr. K...

a pity they can't be REPORTERS instead, as in the type that go develop stories, chase down leads, do indepdent investigations of public records,  you know, actual reporter stuff

I'd like to tell the media to fark off right about now, as does anyone else living anywhere near where they were playing. Jackasses would NOT obey the no-fly zone, so we got to have F-16's dicking around in the sky all day. Seriously, how stupid do you have to be if you need a supersonic jet fighter to fly out and tell you to get lost multiple times in a single day.

I mistakenly read this in Foghorn Leghorn's voice. Try it, it works.

Quite relieved to know I wasn't the only one who did.

Looking at this thread, it seems that Krauthammer uses a wheelchair?
I had no idea.


Yeah, not going to bother commenting on ol' Krauty today.

You've never heard of a slow news day?
 
2013-02-19 07:33:13 PM  
My dad told me that Obama was lazy because he was golfing with Tiger instead of doing something about the high gas prices.

Hey waitafugginminute.  The President is supposed to be behind the Oval Office desk 24/7if he's a Demonrat!

The thing that kills me is that not only does the current setup violate the entire purpose of journalism, it also makes zero business sense. Why does every news outlet in the country pay for someone to go to the White House and regurgitate word for word what they're told? What business advantage is there for giving readers the exact same content everyone else is? OTOH, investigative reporting actually produces scoops, which have to bring in a lot more eyeballs...right?
