Just wanted to let you know that we've got a brand new "Worst of Hyman" poll featuring four particularly noxious "Points" from the last month. Vote Chicago style: early and often.

In a couple of weeks, I'll send a note with the results out to Hyman and Sinclair Broadcasting. Regular readers will have already noticed a few changes in the blog roll. In particular, you'll want to take a look at "Le Blog Berube" and "Bitch Ph.D" (the latter is worth a click just for the priceless photo on the page's banner). Both are intelligent, witty, and insightful blogs with an academic twist (in a good way!).

I've also been adding some links to Sinclair-related articles. If you haven't seen them yet, the Rolling Stone and the GQ pieces are must-reads. If you know of particularly good Sinclair/Hyman related pieces that should be included, please let me know.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Ted, why is missing from the blog roll? It's really a great site for breaking news, great editorials and some excellent videos.

Good suggestion, Mike. I'm not sure if they're a news source or a blog, but I should have a link to them.

I was a little disappointed in their handling of the phantom Rove indictment, but let's let bygones be bygones. On the roll they go!

Yeh Ted, I know what you mean about the Rove indictment story. I was following Jason Leopold's stories very closely and they appeared to be well-sourced. But, he has done a lot of other good investigative reporting on that and other issues. I was mad for a while but I finally decided that unlike the mainstream media, at least he was trying to break a story. I wonder if he was intentionally fed some misinformation on that one.
Most of the news stories are pulled directly from papers all over the US and internationally with links to the original articles, and the editorials are great, some of them by TruthOut staff writers.
You can also find some great video clips there in multiple formats, including those Kieth Olberman classics and many that they produced themselves.
Another good site for video clips is
I hope that they are more careful in the future before releasing a story like that again without rock-solid sourcing and I think they will be if they want to maintain their credibility.
Hey, if you never mess up, you're not doing anything!
Thanks Ted, and keep bustin' Hyman.
