Newsie’s Week in Reviewsies: Media Ignores GOP Scandals; Dean Comments Deemed More Worthy of Coverage

This regular meta-diary focuses on the best overlooked diaries (didn’t get front-paged or on to the recommended list) from the past week; it was once called “Week’s Best Diaries You Didn’t Read.” This column also includes information from elsewhere in cyberspace, blogosphere PSAs, and my own commentary. Diaries are listed because:

  1. they’re fabulously written & have SUBSTANCE
  2. they’ll educate you on candidates and states.  
  3. newsworthy items that got lost in the mix
  4. there was research involved (copyright rules must be followed)

Please add to the list in the replies or email me links you’d like to see included. For previous editions, search my diaries for them.  Consider subscribing to my diaries if you never want to miss an edition. Opinions expressed in the links are not endorsed by me. Archives are here as well.

Best Thing I’ve Read On Dean’s Controversial Comments. JMHO

As for some of the responses from other Dems re: Dean’s comments, I think Harry Reid and Bob Shrum managed to give the best ones. (Yeah, I actually complimented Bob Shrum. I’ll never get a job with anyone who is best friends with Bob Shrum, but I’ll still give credit where credit is due.)

Hells yeah! The difference between the two parties

Q. What has contributed the most to declining approval of Congress in recent public opinion polls?

A. According to the National Journal’s Congressional Insiders Poll, the answer depends on your party affiliation. Republicans blame “partisan bickering,” while Democrats say the “failure to address the everyday concerns of average Americans.”
