The big story Sunday was of course the passage of health insurance reform in Congress. However my shift was over before the big vote. So these are stories from Sunday morning.

Karl Rove’s meltdown on ABC Sunday morning drew a lot of attention.

Republican leaders insisted on NBC that the racist and homophobic taunts by protesters at the Capitol on Saturday were isolated.

And, not that it matters now, Debbie Wasserman Schultz told CNN “we’ve got the votes.”

Late last year I was proud to discover my recent Boise Weekly article, Far from the tree, found its way to the Berman Exposed website. Rick Berman is the PR flack whose astroturfing gained notoriety in ’09.

So I’ve been looking forward to hunting around the web for my latest piece, ‘Experts’ justify profiling, body scanners with familiar paranoid rhetoric, since it was published on Sunday Jan. 3rd. (READ IT AFTER THE JUMP.)

Around the web, I’m finding my story re-published on sites called: Information Liberation, Puppet Gov, Progressive News Daily, One Riot, and even Obama Bowel Movement. I’d say the best named sites that picked up my story are Memeorandum and Intoxination. If you haven’t already grabbed my article and posted it on your own site without asking me, here it is. (more…)
