Off the Media: Liberal, Censor-Avoiding Apples

This week from On the Media we learned that:

  • Co-host Brooke Gladstone is willing to joke about her liberal self. In a story about how conservative bloggers (the “right-o-sphere”) are being skeptical of their skepticism of the mainstream media’s Iraq war coverage:
  • “Some conservative bloggers, mired in the ugly truth about the war in Iraq, are wondering whether they should have spent less time attacking the MSM and more time believing it. We thought we’d get into the argument, so we’ve enlisted prominent conservative blogger Ed Morrissey, AKA Captain Ed (pictured). We’ll take the position of — surprise, surprise — the liberal blogs.”

  • People in countries with less-than-free access to the Internet can get around the censor by getting a favored uncle or cousin or someone in a more free place to install Psiphon on their computer and let them in.
  • Apple’s new cell phone device thingy — there, that puts the iPhone in its place — was the big story of the week. And there weren’t enough skeptical stories. (We agree, but we’ll still gladly do some shameful and self-damaging act to get our hands one.)
