Sorry we did this, Ray.

“Do Men Fake Orgasms?” an everydayhealth.com article splashed on the AOL’s homepage yesterday, is a sign of the liberal Huffington Post’s influence on AOL, according to World Net Daily, amid an  “ongoing campaign of profanity, crude sexual metaphors and hate speech against conservatives.” For an allegedly “explicit” article, WND sure does quote a lot of it.

Kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart is about the be named an ABC News contributor, according to Howard Kurtz. What are her qualifications? She killed it on her freedom media blitz, parlaying the “my story” interviews into advocacy gigs, and then she stood up to Nancy Grace one time.

“Making a decision to stake out a location, where someone is brought out of a police station, that is a decision you make, not a decision the Police Department makes,” he said. “We don’t have any secret way of getting people to court.”

Mayor Bloomberg has also changed his stance on the practice.

    Out of control? The entire department? No. Some people may be out of certain levels of control. What can you expect from a group of people that large in numbers in that line of work?

    It’s life. Deal with it.
