Happy Indigenous Peoples Day, everybody! This being Monday, I am happy to present another pair of a regular series of superb podcasts by our podcaster extraordinaire, Mr. Burr Deming. Burr is also the creator and chief author of the excellent and always thought-provoking blog known as Fair and Unbalanced. Please visit there and review his backlog of literally thousands of insightful posts!
Today, Burr focuses first on the latest Mitt Romneyisms. Of this pathological liar, Burr observes, “News reports, analysts, and pundits flooded networks and print media with accounts of the Romney interview. It was ig news.
The most significant item was mentioned in the interview, but was lost in the coverage. It was overridden by the hot, hot question raised by the interview. Will Mitt run again?
News focuses on the unusual. In another era, the confession would have dominated. Today, it is scarcely worth mentioning.”
‘Mr. Deming, Do you find President Obama to be a man of his word who governs with integrity and without misdirection and outright lies?’
It seemed a shame to avoid such a direct question from such a good friend. So I invited him for a quiet stroll through the record.”
