But Murdoch’s NY Post has started sliming Bill Thompson (Bloomberg’s opponent) as the zillions of attack ads in our mailboxes and on the TV are not enough

More interestingly, Giuliani trots along Bloomberg in racist neighborhoods, making racist threats if we don’t elect his buddy

Mr. Giuliani did not mention Mr. Bloomberg’s Democratic challenger, William C. Thompson Jr., by name. But during the first of two campaign events alongside Mr. Bloomberg, he said that not long ago many parts of the city were gripped by “the fear of going out at night and walking the streets.”

That “not long ago” was before his term when we had a black mayor. Interestingly enough, no word from the Democratic party calling him on it. I suppose the race card only belongs now to a selected club.

After all, we now know that the famous race memo in Obama campaign had to have been completely controlled by the campaign. We know that because the campaign communications director Anita Dunn just boasted recently:

President Obama’s presidential campaign focused on “making” the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was “controlled,”

“”Very rarely did we communicate
through the press anything that we didn’t absolutely control,”

yeah, the source is iffy – and they extend a statement made about the campaign to the White House – but what she said about the campaign is illuminating enough – and these are her words caught on video

And yet another hoax catches our media pants down

A CNBC anchor interrupted herself mid-sentence Monday morning to announce that the network had “breaking news,” then cut away to reporter Hampton Pearson, who read from the fake press release.

Oh, but I thought only Fox was not news…
