Dec. 8, 2014 By Jack Jodell (in association with FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).
It’s the start of a new week, and that means a new doubleheader of podcasts from our resident podcaster extraordinaire, Mr. Burr Deming, creator and chief author of the excellent blog Fair and Unbalanced.com. The first of these podcasts deals with Burr correctly castigating the media for the brazen way they sometimes list the home addresses of public figures.
In Burr’s own words, “Not quite buried in news accounts of protest, violence, and frequent missteps of authorities, was an incident that should have enraged pretty much everyone on every side of every aspect of Ferguson events. The New York Times published the home street and town where Officer Darren Wilson lives, along with the name of his new wife.
It reminds me of another incident from years ago. It is especially interesting to me how reactions have shifted.”

In his second gem, entitled “Issues the Day After – Lessons Republicans Can Teach Us”, Burr wisely reminds us that we should not rush to judgment, as bitter conservative Republican partisans often do, especially where the President is concerned…
On this topic, Burr says, “Sometimes important lessons from world developments; conflict with Russia, deadly battles with the self-styled Islamic State, the medical threat from Ebola; become clear only in later months or years.
But Republicans have taught us one unifying lesson from all of these issues. That lesson hasn’t taken long at all.”
