this from the RNC selling rights to debates:

While Republicans captured the House, made gains in the Senate and picked up additional governorships during Steele's tenure, he was widely criticized for his stewardship of the committee, particularly fundraising.

first, i want to be critical of ff for posting this. it is an article by CNN. the reason i come to J/P is to get away from bullshit journalism like that. oh, my apologies, did i say bullshit journalism, what i meant was horseshit journalism.
second, the referenced paragraph is a perfect example of which i speak. no where did they mention the effect of the tea party. it was simply portrayed as during steele's tenure. like he had anything at all to do with it.

The comment stream here nicely illustrates my dilemma.

I started this feature because I thought a morning news wire might appeal to some people.

As we see here, some people like a news wire, and some don't. I limit this feature to straight news. As we both know, a lot of this stuff is slanted and not necessarily stuff I agree with. I figure if Drudge can do it, so can I.

It's kinda like 'come for the straight news, stay for the informed commentary and interpretation.'

The News wire is an experiment, and I want to see how it goes. As you know, I tried something a bit like this before, but not so cut and dried.You might want to just skip over it for now and go right to the stuff you enjoy.

Perhaps if I get more feedback from my readers, that would indicate whether the News Wire stays or not.

My apologies for the inconvenience.
