Pictures of the week

Why monitoring is probably a good idea.

I'm liking TPM's new regular video feature, the day in 100 seconds. It's funny. But what's sad is they really can sum up the substance of the day's teevee news in only 100 seconds.

I forgot about the six year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Apparently, the legacy media did too, or at least I didn't see any coverage of it. But TPM remembered with a photo gallery of seminal moments.

That was good but the the best tribute was probably Doonesbury's strip for the day. Time to bring our troops home.

Interestingly, when CSpan celebrated its 30th Birthday last week it asked for listeners to call or email in why they watched; and number said that without seeing what went on they would never have learned what actually happened in gov't because there was no news, or misleading news, to be had on standard media.

They were right about that Ruth. CSPAN is the closest thing to real unfiltered news we have left.
