‘You’ve set the stage for a new Holocaust’: David Draiman unloads on lib media

http://twitter.com/#!/Kudzu81/status/498097742934441984

In July, Disturbed and Device vocalist David Draiman told “the mainstream media, anti-Semites, propagandists, and attackers of Israel” he’d “had about enough of your bullsh*t.” In a scorching rant, Draiman ripped the media again for fueling a stomach-turning “wave of anti-Semitism.”

‘ABC is drunk!’ Affiliate starts year with Halle Berry oops [pics]

Well, an ABC affiliate got its first “oops” of 2014 out of the way pretty quickly!

Jim Geraghty reminds NYT of headline they can re-use for Jill Abramson story

http://twitter.com/#!/jimgeraghty/status/466723834394320896

Jill Abramson is out as executive editor of the New York Times. The New Yorker reported that one of Abramson’s conflicts with top brass at the paper started after she discovered that her pay and benefits were “considerably less” than her male predecessor.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty helped save the Times’ headline writers some extra work if they decide to do a story:

Perfect!

‘Transparency’: ‘Media lockdown’ at Biden event in Chicago

http://twitter.com/#!/natashakorecki/status/504003995518898176

Some reporters seem like they’re getting a little tired of getting the run-around from the most transparent administration in history.

They can’t have people like that participating. That could create a breach in the narrative.

Transparency.

Vice President Joe Biden guests on ‘Late Night’; Seth Meyers bombs

http://twitter.com/#!/jpodhoretz/status/438188744387358720

He’s vice president, not president, so being second in line is just part of the job. Vice President Joe Biden was the second guest on the inaugural broadcast of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” late Monday night.

Judging from Twitter reaction, there’s only one thing worse than being the second guest on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and that’s being the host of “Late Night with Seth Myers.”

‘I hate my life’: Josh Earnest’s face betrays his inner turmoil [photos]

It can’t be easy being Josh Earnest these days. He’s got a lot of crap to explain.

It’s part of his job to look calm even when it’s all hit the fan, and bless his heart for trying, but he’s not fooling anyone anymore:

‘Gold’: Joni Ernst swiftly praised for ‘epic troll of Harkin’

http://twitter.com/#!/thesilky/status/529335221431193600

Republican Joni Ernst is running to fill the Iowa Senate seat vacated by the retiring liberal Tom Harkin, and over the weekend Harkin warned voters not to be fooled by the GOP candidate who is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.” Harkin added, “I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”

Ernst has responded to Harkin, though not directly:
