    How the Mainstream Press Bungled the Single Biggest Story of the 2012 Campaign
    Dec 8, 2012 by RON BEASLEY

    Dan Froomkin explains:

    So what is the biggest story? The fact that the Tea Party dominated Republican Party is a train wreck.

    Post-mortems of contemporary election coverage typically include regrets about horserace journalism, he-said-she-said stenography, and the lack of enlightening stories about the issues.
    But according to longtime political observersThomas Mann and Norman Ornstein, campaign coverage in 2012 was a particularly calamitous failure, almost entirely missing the single biggest story of the race: Namely, the radical right-wing, off-the-rails lurch of the Republican Party, both in terms of its agenda and its relationship to the truth.
    Mann and Ornstein are two longtime centrist Washington fixtures who earlier this year dramatically rejected the strictures of false equivalency that bind so much of the capital’s media elite and publicly concluded that GOP leaders have become “ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.”

    So why does the media do this? The editors are terrified of being labeled as biased. Of course as a result their reporting becomes biased when they ignore the outright lies and detachment from reality of the Republicans.

    Tennis Player Mocks Serena Williams In Bizarre On-Court Display?
    Dec 10, 2012 By Ruth Manuel-Logan

    During a recent Sao Paulo, Brazil, exhibition match against Slovak tennis-pro Maria Sharapova, 22-year-old Caroline Wozniacki (pictured) decided to make tennis superstar Serena Williams the “butt” of her joke.

    While playing Sharapova, Wozniacki padded up her chest and behind so that she could depict Williams as she competed in the foreign match, which included such onlookers as her boyfriend, 23-year-old Rory McIlroy, who is the current No. 1 World and two-time major-golfing champion.

    The Dane, who lost the match, 6-2, 7-6, made many in the audience laugh as she swung her tennis racket while displaying her fake assets.

    Beyoncé signs $50 million Pepsi deal

    Dec. 10, 2012, 11:22 AM EST

    WENN

    Beyoncé has cemented her place as a top earning pop superstar by signing a lucrative deal with Pepsi worth an estimated $50 million.

    The singer has previously appeared in Pepsi ads, but she has now stepped up her involvement with the company by becoming the face of the brand and giving Pepsi sponsorship for her albums, concerts, photo shoots and music videos. Pepsi will also provide a multimillion dollar fund for Beyoncé to use to bankroll her own creative projects over the next few years, according to the New York Times.

    Beyoncé says in a statement, “Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve. As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.”

    Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, who runs Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment company, insists the deal is more than just a regular brand sponsorship agreement, adding, “It’s wise for a brand like Pepsi to give an artist the ability to truly express herself. Instead of just the old-school way of, ‘Do you want to be in an advertisement?’ This is much bigger. This is, ‘How can we create something together that is truly unique?’”

    No Commentary Required 12/9/12
    Here’s a few things I found interesting today.

    For those who still aren’t clear about why Ezra Klein is wrong in assuming there is some imminent deal on the so-called “fiscal cliff” that includes what Republicans want with regards to Medicare, just take a look at how Republican Bob Corker framed the situation today.

    ………………………………………………………………………………

    The real fault line the Republicans are trying to draw is to use the debt ceiling (not the fiscal cliff negotiations) as a way to force changes in entitlements. If you want to know just how serious President Obama is about NOT playing that game, read David Corn’s article about the firm stand he took in not agreeing to a short-term extension of the debt ceiling during the last negotiations.

    Obama believed a constitutional principle was at stake: If the Republicans could threaten default to get their way on budget issues, it would distort the separation of powers. This was not what the framers of the Constitution intended, he believed. Moreover, it was embarrassing for the United States. He was determined to prevent this scenario from occurring again.

    His aides could see that Obama would not bend. He was willing to go to the brink. Toward the end of that day’s meeting with Hill leaders, when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor raised the idea of a short-term extension, Obama angrily said, “I’m not going to do it. We’re not putting the country through this again. Don’t call my bluff.

    Obama, intrextrotrovert

    For a year or two, we’ve been awash in stories casting Obama as a singularity among politicians: a successful introvert. He doesn’t schmooze congress-folk, we read ad infinitum; he doesn’t butter up billionaires, or at least doesn’t keep them well buttered.

    It’s true he’s no Bill Clinton, sniffing out crowds to soothe a recurring jones for mass adulation. But he’s no classic introvert, either, as this remembrance from Maraniss’s Obama reminds me:

    There were certain aspects of organizing at which he excelled. 280 While Loretta Augustine-Herron and Yvonne Lloyd were wary of some streets, even in familiar neighborhoods, and warned Obama away, he had no qualms about walking down any block or entering any house, no matter how threatening or odd. His life’s history was at work here. When you spend several formative years starting at age six immersed in an unfamiliar culture on the other side of the world, walking the exotic alleyways and pathways of the Menteng Dalam neighborhood of Jakarta, and figure out how to survive and thrive there, learning the language, seeming so at home that Indonesians come to think of you as one of them, nothing after that can seem too intimidating. But Lloyd was shocked one day when Obama reported that he had eaten at the house of a woman who was known for being a packrat, with old newspapers and detritus stacked high everywhere. “I said, ‘Did you go over and eat in that house? It’s not exactly the safest place in the world.’… He’d say, ‘Yeah, it was interesting.’ We’d say, ‘You need to stay away. Don’t walk through there.’ He’d laugh. It didn’t bother him. He was on that level with all of those people. I don’t know how he managed it because they were leery [of anyone walking up to their doors]. It was the way he approached them. That has a lot to do with why they would let him in. It’s like he belonged. Now he didn’t, and we know he didn’t, but he gave them kind of that feeling.”

    Over time Obama proved to be a first-rate student, and then teacher, of one-on-ones. In this realm again he drew on the adaptability and universal sensibility he had acquired from his life experiences and from his mother, the academic anthropologist who could relate to her subjects on a warmly human level. As a teacher, he was the sympathetic participant observer. David Kindler, who joined the Chicago organizing effort about a year after Obama, observed his teaching methods at the training workshops the Gamaliel Foundation sponsored at the Divine Word Seminary at Techny, near Northfield, about nineteen miles north of the city. In that setting the one-on-ones would be conducted in front of an entire room of forty or so people. The method was for the trainer to share something of his own vulnerability in order to draw similar revelations from the subject. Obama would “get somebody up in front of the room. He’d listen to them. He’d encourage them. He’d share something about himself [usually about the father he never knew], not because he was a manipulator,” Kindler said. “He was great at it because he actually cared about people his mother, the academic anthropologist who could relate to her subjects on a warmly human level. As a teacher, he was the sympathetic participant observer. David Kindler, who joined the Chicago organizing effort about a year after Obama, observed his teaching methods at the training workshops the Gamaliel Foundation sponsored at the Divine Word Seminary at Techny, near Northfield, about nineteen miles north of the city.

    In fact Obama is a singular blend of introvert and extrovert. There is an interior distance to him, a tendency to hold his core in reserve, but also a rare confidence in the way he reaches out to other people, and an empathy inherited one way or another (genetically or by example or both) from his mother.

    Reminder: Republicans Still Sitting on VAWA

    Posted on 12/08/2012 at 4:30 pm by JM Ashby

    Congress still hasn’t renewed the Violence Against Women Act. More specifically, the House of Representatives is still refusing to pass the newest version of the bill which has already passed the Senate.

    The Tea Party House originally opposed the latest version of the bill because it granted existing protection to members of the LGBT community, immigrants, and Native American tribes. But the hold-up at this point in negotiations is the latter, not the former.

    Eric Cantor is reportedly personally overseeing the final stages of passing the bill and it is he who has a problem with granting existing protections and additional rights to Native Americans.

    …………………………………………………

    Why do Native American tribes need this provision? Because of this.

    In some rural villages, rapes are 12 times more common than the national rate, and for Native American women, generally sexual assault is more than twice as common as the national average, according to The New York Times. The Alaska Federation of Natives cites a 2010 report by the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, finding that while only 15.2 percent of Alaskans are Native American, they are the victims of 50 percent of the domestic violence and 61 percent of the sexual assaults committed in the state.

    The vast majority of these crimes go unpunished. Local police, expected to prevent rapes and to respond quickly to reports of rapes, sometimes don’t respond at all. Hospitals lack the rape kits and cameras that would allow the collection of biological and photographic evidence to be used at trial. Most Native American rape victims don’t bother to take the nearly futile step of reporting rapes in the first place.

    The men who commit these crimes are often not Native American themselves. Indian Country reports that “non-Indians commit 88%” of rapes and domestic violence against Native American women, but they are beyond the reach of local justice: “antiquated jurisdictional laws” prevent tribal justice systems “from prosecuting non-Native criminals.”

    A decent human being would clear the way to pass the additional provision without delay, but Eric Cantor has decided that “epidemic levels” of rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence against Native American women is political.

    Goosing the Means-Testing Ghost

    By Ed Kilgore

    We are led to believe that another non-negotiable congressional Republican demand at the center of the big fiscal talks is “means-testing” of Social Security and/or Medicare. This has become quite the mantra for Republicans. Means-testing Social Security benefits was one of the few unchanging policy positions Mitt Romney maintained during the 2012 cycle. Means-testing entitlements generally was articulated as the very definition of “entitlement reform” by Mitch McConnell in an interview with the Wall Street Journal immediately after the elections.

    But can anyone tell you with any degree of precision what Republicans currently propose by way of supporting “means-testing?” To some extent, that bridge has long been crossed, so it shouldn’t be a matter of some big principle being vindicated. Social Security benefits are already means-tested by the pay-out formulas—and by the exposure of benefits to income taxes, which has been in place since 1993. And depending on how you look at it, so are Medicare’s, insofar as Part B and Part D premiums vary according to income. So what’s the big Republican idea? A little more along the same lines, or something more drastic? Hard to say, isn’t it?

    There are also aspects of means-testing that make it a very implausible conservative policy initiative. The Right has complained for years that means-tested programs for the poor undermine work incentives. As Kevin Drum has pointed out, means-testing retirement programs could create lifelong disincentives to higher incomes and savings. And more modest means-testing wouldn’t save a lot of money (which should be evident in the fact that so many people don’t even know it already exists). In citing this “reform” as a sort of first principle, GOPers are really goosing a ghost.

    So you got one “essential entitlement reform” that makes no sense and nobody likes (increasing the eligibility age for Medicare) and another that no one can quite describe. Throw in paring back cost-of-living adjustments for all federally provided benefits, which is guaranteed to infuriate many millions of people, and you’ve got quite the “reform” package.

    – -Top 10 Reasons Why The U.S. Needs Comprehensive Immigration Reform – - -

    – — -The nation needs a comprehensive immigration plan, and it is clear from a recent poll that most Americans support reforming the U.S.’s immigration system. In a new poll, nearly two-thirds of people surveyed are in favor of a measure that allows undocumented immigrants to earn citizenship over several years, while only 35 percent oppose such a plan. And President Obama is expected to “begin an all-out drive for comprehensive immigration reform, including seeking a path to citizenship” in January.

    Several top Republicans have softened their views on immigration reform following November’s election, but in the first push for reform, House Republicans advanced a bill last month that would add visas for highly skilled workers while reducing legal immigration overall. Providing a road map to citizenship for the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. would have sweeping benefits for the nation, especially the economy.

    Here are the top 10 reasons why the U.S. needs comprehensive immigration reform:

    1. Legalizing the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States would boost the nation’s economy. It would add a cumulative $1.5 trillion to the U.S. gross domestic product—the largest measure of economic growth—over 10 years. That’s because immigration reform that puts all workers on a level playing field would create a virtuous cycle in which legal status and labor rights exert upward pressure on the wages of both American and immigrant workers. Higher wages and even better jobs would translate into increased consumer purchasing power, which would benefit the U.S. economy as a whole.

    2. Tax revenues would increase.

    -COMMENT: – - — -Stan Lee
    1. Republican Party refused to govern for four years, dedicated only to the defeat of the President.
    2. TeaBagger fringe loonies took control of party.

    3. Fox News and Rush Limbaugh became power behind of the party instead of elected officials.
    4. Crazy loonie fringe candidates dominated the nominating process – Bachman, Perry, Cain along with distinguished traditional loonies like Gingrich and Paul.
    5. Nomination goes to most moderate candidate – Romney – who spends months running against the moderate positions he took in his only elective office as Governor of Massachusetts.
    6. Crazy whacko platform that tries to return America to the 1950’s collides with crazy whacko Congressional candidates who don’t understand basic anatomy and science.
    7. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney turns out to stand for absolutely nothing except getting elected.
    8. Party surprised there are blacks, Latinos, women, gays and young people who don’t appreciate being patronized or treated like idiots by idiots who can’t possibly believe their own ideological blather.

    9. Ignoring science, reason, economics, polling and common sense, party sucks itself into its own bubble that sees landslide win, then shellshocked by loss.
    10. Party post-election attacks each other for being the loony fringe party that everyone else recognized them as being from the start. Analyze that ….
