Also: BRAD BLOG Twitter and Facebook numbers updates...
By Brad Friedman on 3/19/2010 11:37am PT  

After being largely off grid for the last several days on an unrelated job, and a harrowing late-night flight back from Portland on Alaska Air (I blame Palin), I'm finally getting back to work today. Lots to catch up on over next several days.

Feel free to let me know in comments here if there's anything you believe may need my attention, or that you think I may not know about but may want to...

P.S. We ticked up over 1,000 followers on Twitter at some point over the last day or two. Congrats to @bcctmv who seems to be the 1,000th! If you're not following @TheBradBlog there yet, what's the hold up? You're missing lots of fun stuff that doesn't make it over here to the blog!

Also, our Facebook page (started much later) is now nearing 700 fans. If you want to spread the good word over there, it's much appreciated! Please jump in if you're a FB user!




UPDATE: 'Mandation Nation'. Video of Palin, Mathews & Alito's lowlights....
By Brad Friedman on 1/27/2010 5:50pm PT  

I sure hope Cindy's there tonight to help make things lively! Ah, memories. Otherwise, here's your annual SOTU open thread. We'll be watching along with you...

Prepared text of speech now here...

UPDATE 1/28/10, 1:10pm PT: "Mandation Nation". Just flagging, for posterity, the three most noteworthy sideshow moments, as I had noted eacj in comments last night as they happened, since we now have the video of each, courtesy of Shannyn Moore's compilation (and AKMuckraker's "Mandation Nation"). Palin on Obama's "mandation for health care"; Matthews' racial forgetfullness; and Republican Justice Alito as the new Joe Wilson. All three videos now follow below...

A Thanksgiving Day Open Thread...
By Brad Friedman on 11/26/2009 9:39am PT  

[Hat-tip Sibel Edmonds, for whom we are always thankful.]

And while things are decidedly imperfect this year, we remain thankful nonetheless that, unlike last year, these are not the photos we are forced to see on our Thanksgiving open thread this year.

Mostly, we are ever thankful for those of you who share your time, generosity, goodwill, feedback, tips, thoughts and well wishes with us here at The BRAD BLOG, even as you continue to spread the word and keep fighting the good fight however, whenever and wherever you can.

And what do you find yourselves thankful for this year?...




By Brad Friedman on 10/26/2009 3:30pm PT  

I went to an event last night out here in Los Angeles where I got a lot of fun video --- way more than I can use. So please pardon the light posting today as I've been buried in the "editing room" culling through it all in hopes of putting something together that you may enjoy. Consider this an open thread --- or a guessing game as to what event that might have been --- until I'm able to come up for air...




By Brad Friedman on 10/12/2009 4:35pm PT  

I've been offline for much of yesterday and today while re-installing everything in the world, and restoring gigs o' data on a new notebook we can't afford, after one of ours nearly met its maker (DELL) over the past week while I was pressing hard on a deadline for an article elsewhere. (And yes, the article had run-on sentences as well!)

But looks like I'm lucky and haven't missed much. Or have I, and you all just haven't told me yet? I'll hope it's the former. My brain needs rest.




By Brad Friedman on 7/20/2009 11:01pm PT  

A commenter here recently complained that we don't have many open threads around here these days. True 'dat. So, as I've been waste deep working on a detailed story all day today, hopefully to run here on Tuesday, here's your momentary opportunity for an open thread. Make it quick and worth our while, or it may be another year or so before we have another...




An Open Thread...
[UPDATED With Post-Debate Statement from ACORN on McCain's Comments]
By Brad Friedman on 10/15/2008 5:45pm PT  

For the last time this year, in theory, a Presidential Debate open thread. Share your thoughts during and after in comments below.

I'll be on WBAI/Pacifica (99.5FM in NYC, streaming here) right after the debate, for post-game analysis. Listen in, if ya like. Will try to follow comments here even while on air...

POST-DEBATE UPDATE: ACORN issues a fairly scathing press release in response to McCain's comments about them group during tonight's debate. Their statement follows below...

Guests Include Nader & McKinney...AND the Lying GOP/Wall Street Journal Anti-democracy Propagandist John Fund!
Now UPDATED With Audio Archives...
By Brad Friedman on 10/3/2008 3:16pm PT  

Tonight's the last of my Guest Host stints, for now, on this week's Mike Malloy Show. We'll air live tonight from 9pm-Midnight ET (6p-9p PT) and we should have another good one for you this evening.

Scrambling now to get over to the studio, because from 8p-9p ET (5p-6p PT), during my usual weekly Friday guest appearance on The Peter B. Collins Show, just prior to subbing on Malloy's show tonight, we'll have a very special guest appearing with us at the same time, for the first half hour, and you may want to tune in for that as well! It should be a very lively hour!

While I'll not give you the name of that special PBC guest, I can give you the names of a couple of my guests tonight on the Malloy Show. You may have heard of them...

We'll otherwise try to keep things open tonight for today's news, my rants, your calls (800-989-1480) on anything you like & free DVD giveaways of Murder, Spies & Voting Lies!

Malloy's show is nationally syndicated on a number of air affiliates around the country, on Sirus Ch. 146, XM Ch. 167 and streaming live online at NovaMRadio.com.

"Agent 99" will once again host tonight's Open Thread in the comments below...See ya tonight!


POST-SHOW UPDATE: Wow. Big show! All four hours of 'em, if you count the first one on Peter B. Collins with cowardly, lying guest John Fund (who hung up during the first commercial break, guess he's not used to anybody being able to answer to his bullshit).

Each "hour" is actually about 37 mins. with the commercials removed, thanks to Ben Burch of White Rose Society. Here they are. Enjoy...

LIVE Tonight 6p-9p PT (9p-Midnight ET) and for Rest of the Week!
Now UPDATED With Audio Archives...
By Brad Friedman on 10/1/2008 10:59am PT  

I'll be Guest Hosting the The Mike Malloy Show tonight through Friday, from 9pm-Midnight ET (6p-9p PT) each night. Hope you'll tune in!

Tomorrow, we'll be running the Veep Debate live for the first 90 minutes (or until Palin breaks down in tears), followed by a Blogger Roundtable with some world class bloggers (Marcy Wheeler from Empty Wheel, David "dday" Dayen from Digby's Hullabalo and Calitics, Marc "Armed Liberal" Danziger from Winds Of Change, Pamela Leavey from The Democratic Daily, and maybe a few more --- even some Righties --- if we can get 'em!)

But tonight is looking pretty good as well, and is currently scheduled to include the following:

  • MURRAY WAAS, investigative reporter at ABC, National Journal and elsewhere, on the new (and under-reported) IG report on the U.S. Attorney Purge.
  • Ohio attorney CLIFF ARNEBECK on big new developments (including a possible subpoena for Karl Rove!) in his long-standing Ohio 2004 Election Fraud lawsuit.
  • Today's news. My rants. Your calls (800-989-1480) & free DVD giveaways of Murder, Spies & Voting Lies!
  • And whatever else I feel like!

Malloy's show is nationally syndicated on a number of air affiliates around the country, on Sirus Ch. 146, XM Ch. 167 and streaming live online at NovaMRadio.com.

As always, "Agent 99" will be your charming, if often irritable hostess for our live Open Thread during the show right here. See ya tonight!


POST-SHOW UPDATE: Miss anything? Here it all is, delivered straight to ya. Commercial free. You're welcome. The audio archives follow...
