The New Yorker examines the President’s latest budget and find it “represents a major dodge on climate change.” Hence columnist Ryan Lizza poses the headline question, “Has Obama already given up on climate change?” Sure Obama has been talking a good game on climate in the second inaugural address and State of the Union : But the budget released this week makes it clear that Obama’s surprising appeal to Congress was an empty piece of rhetoric.

Fox News hosts have been dismissing the effects of the across-the-board government spending cuts known as sequestration, claiming that “nothing is happening” following the cuts taking effect.

Despite an appeal Thursday by 15 right-wing Republican senators for President Barack Obama to withdraw the nomination of Chuck Hagel as his next defence secretary, the former Republican senator from Nebraska appears virtually certain to be confirmed as Pentagon chief by the full Senate next week.

Right-wing media outlets have advanced a number of myths regarding automatic across-the-board spending cuts — commonly called the sequester — in order to hide the facts behind an inherently harmful economic policy. Will The Sequester Hurt Economic Growth? Will The Sequester Help The Economy?

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has issued a press release  expressing  concern over the ”inap­pro­pri­ate invo­ca­tions of Hitler, Nazis, and gen­eral Holo­caust imagery” in debates about gun violence after the Sandy Hook shooting. In a related blog post, the ADL  wrote : “These com­par­isons, made by polit­i­cal pun­dits on national news pro­grams as well by oth­ers out­side pol­i­tics, are not only mis­placed and offen­sive, rely­ing on fac­tu­ally incor­rect premises and exag­ger­a­tions, but also deflect atten­tion away from an impor­tant national discussion.” Some of their examples of this type of imagery include: The Drudge Report, under the headline “White House Threatens ‘Executive Orders’ on Guns,” featured photos of Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin (Jan

The editorial boards of the  Colorado Springs Gazette and The Oklahoman claimed that the Obama administration should approve the pipeline now that TransCanada — the corporation seeking to build the pipeline — has rerouted the project because it won’t have a negative environmental impact. But in fact, the risk of a spill over environmentally sensitive areas remains
