And yet, for all of the examples where journalists have uncovered wrong-doing and pursued those responsible (even to the highest reaches of government) there is at least one area where the fourth estate typically fails to cover itself in glory. ...more

Only "real" feminists need apply

Contributing Editor Koan Bremner also blogs at Multidimensional.Me If there's something more important than smashing the patriarchy, then it's obviously deriding another woman for making a conscious decision to stay at home to raise her children. As BlogHer Contributing Editor Erin Kotecki Vest discovered recently, when a "real" feminist decided to email her displeasure. ...more

Hey, Caitlin! Democrat THIS!

Contributing Editor Mir also blogs at Woulda Coulda Shoulda and Ty's Toy Box. Caitlin Flanagan is just so misunderstood. She's just like you and me, y'all. Except, you know, a gazillion times more judgemental and just about the only self-proclaimed Democrat who does things like go on national television and declare that women were better off stuck in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. ...more

Has the blog wagon already left?

One of the high points of my workday is going around doing work related stuff, and then stumbling upon nuggets of wisdom in random places. Like today I was searching searching for a cool stock ticker to add my company's intranet, and God knows what trail I followed but I ended up on Barnako's blog. It didn't take long for my momentary pleasure to come crashing down. ...more
