I’m an in-studio guest on Pacifica’s Uprising, with Sonali Kohlhatkur, this morning starting at 11am ET/8am PT, talking about the debt limit deal. Robert Scheer will also be in the studio. You can listen live at

Mini-Roundup and Programming Note

By: Sunday April 10, 2011 8:53 am

I’ll be in the desert for a couple days in what you might call an FDL News Desk shutdown. Shutdown! Regular programming to resume Tuesday AM. In the meantime, you can chew on some links: • Well, here it comes. David Plouffe announced this morning that the President would give a speech on Wednesday delivering [...]

By: Friday March 11, 2011 8:05 am

Join Firedoglake’s NEWAnnual Membership Program Support our work and help shape the future of Firedoglake with an annual membership contribution. When I was in Madison a couple weeks ago, I met people from across the state and all walks of life. I met a lifelong teacher who said her 99 year-old grandmother told her to [...]

Thoughts on Freddie DeBoer’s Self-Limiting Critique of the Blogosphere

By: Tuesday January 18, 2011 2:09 pm

Marcy has offered some thoughts on the Freddie DeBoer article that has everybody buzzing, and maybe I should offer my own. I thought that it was a dumb article. OK, not dumb, but needlessly myopic. Because by asserting that the blogosphere “lacks a left wing” and then defining that left wing without actually incorporating the [...]

FDL Writer’s Foundation: For More Than Just Screaming to Your Neighbor

By: Thursday December 30, 2010 10:01 am

In the Jon Swift Memorial Roundup of the best blog posts of the year selected by the bloggers themselves, I picked my first installment of the Portrait of HAMP Failure series. And I think it is a perfect example of why something like FDL is a crucial part of the political conversation in this country, [...]

Merry Christmas Thread

By: Saturday December 25, 2010 3:03 pm

Should have put this up earlier, but as a member of the tribe I’m not entirely wired for Christmas. As is typical for me on 12-25, I saw the earliest morning movie matinee possible (The King’s Speech), and now I’m waiting for the flavors of Mark Bittman’s apple slaw to mellow so we can have [...]

Holiday Weekend Roundup at 30,000 Feet

By: Sunday November 28, 2010 10:49 pm

Greetings from somewhere over Oklahoma. Much thanks to AirTran’s working WiFi service for bringing you this roundup. I had basically no inclination for matters Internet over the holiday sojourn, and whatever glimmer of inclination existed ended swiftly, when my wife answered the question “So what’s the password to the MiFi card?” with mostly a smile [...]

Station Break

I’ll get a roundup on the site later, folks. For the moment, I have to do some “actual reporting.” Back in a jif…

Ruminate Before Roundup

By: Wednesday November 3, 2010 2:44 pm

Guys, I’m just a little tired for roundup-ing today. Here’s a roundup: the rest of the Internets, take yer pick. We’ll be better equipped for a closer look after some rest.

Programming Note

By: Thursday October 28, 2010 11:45 am

I have to pop out to tape a radio interview (it’s the Jimmy Dore show on Pacifica, you can listen live from 7-8pm ET today), and it requires me to be in the studio in the SF Valley, so this could take a while. Back with more exciting blog content shortly!

Station Break

By: Friday October 22, 2010 9:55 am

I’ll be out at the Obama “Moving America Forward” rally at USC today which starts in a couple hours, so I won’t be on the Toobz for a while. Please while yourself away on another corner of the Internets. I’ll probably have a few thoughts on my Twitter feed about the rally.
