An Inquiry Answered
I received a reader inquiry. The upshot is that I have done some interesting blog and non-blog things in the past (as indicated by a Google search of “Scoobie Davis” and by the sidebar that has the transcripts of phone calls--mostly to right-wing whackos and blowhards. However, the thoughtful person, pointed out, my more recent stuff is mostly far from cutting edge and a lot of it is local stuff that deals with stuff I’m personally doing and not the larger issues of politics, culture and society.

The way the person found out about me was the interview with David Brock with CJR Daily during the launch of Media Matters for America. In the interview, Brock lumped me together with Atrios and The Daily Howler.

Let me explain with the following points:
•One of the reasons I allow myself to coast is the very emergence of web sites like Media Matters, Crooks and Liars, and The Huffington Post. These sites have the time, personnel, and resources to address media misconduct on a consistent and ongoing basis.
•I’m working on a couple media projects that I can’t disclose at this time. I hope to soon.
•I occasionally cover a news event that wasn’t caught by others. This site, of course, is not the type of site you read every day to get the latest political developments—Atrios and Kos are two good sites for that—it’s the type of site you read occasionally—but read it occasionally. For instance, yesterday, I called Fox News Democrat Tammy Bruce and pulled her leg (unfortunately the tape recorder malfunctioned but I can give details in the addendum).
• I believe in having this blog a blend of analysis and personal experience. Some people like reading about Hollywood and other parties that I crash. Some people like reading my wise-ass insights on the media. Skip over what doesn’t interest you.
• In recent weeks, I’ve been focusing on finding a steady gig. The bills don’t pay themselves.

In sum, I would like to make this site a better site than it is. Put me on your bookmarks and check out what I write. Once I’m settled in San Diego, I can devote more time to the blog. Projects are in the works.

Addendum: Yesterday’s smart-ass remarks on Tammy Bruce’s radio show. As I have written previously, Bruce is a completely treacherous person and sellout (go to the "Phone Calls" sidebar on this site and click on the ones listed for Bruce for more info on her). She’s also a really lame person—if you don’t believe me, listen to her radio show. The art of being a wise ass to wing-nuts talk radio jocks involves pulling the mark’s leg by acting like you’re one of the typical mouthbreathers in their audience and then waiting until they realize that you’re being sarcastic.

Anyhow, yesterday when I got home to watch the rest of the USC/Notre Dame game, I was also surfing the SD radio stations and found that the local AM station KOGO carries Bruce’s show. Bruce was discussing the successes in Iraq and how the mainstream media was biased in their reporting on the Bush Administration’s successes in the region. When she got to my call, I got on and said that one thing that wasn’t being focused on was the masterful political strategy that led to the war with Iraq and that the media was shortsighted for focusing on how Bush’s operatives outed a CIA agent responsible for protecting us from weapons of mass destruction. What’s a little treason? “You can’t make an omelet,” I quipped, “without breaking a few eggs.”

By the time I finished with the last sentence, she realized I was mocking her. She went into right-wing talking points mode and said that Plame was a desk jockey who drove her car to CIA headquarters and that she wasn’t undercover. I told Bruce she was regurgitating right-wing talking points and that she was wrong. She then absurdly told me that the photo of Plame appeared in Vanity Fair before she was outed. I told her that wasn’t true. Somewhere around this point in the conversation, Bruce potted down my audio and I was disconnected.

After the commercial break, incredibly Bruce told listeners that I was a hack and that people like me were the real hacks. Go figure. However, Brude made the prediction that mirrored the prediction made by William Kristol on Fox News Sunday yesterday: that there probably won’t be any indictments based on the Espionage Act or security violations but that there will probably be some based on charges like perjury, obstruction of justice, or making false statements to FBI investigators. If people like Bruce and Kristol make such pessimistic predictions, then one should take them seriously. Rove's ass is grass. While I would prefer to see Rove’s evil ass frog-marched out of the White House based on an indictment for the violation of the Espionage Act, a charge of perjury or obstruction will do--I’ll take it.

One final thought, a cavalier attitude toward treason on Bruce’s part doesn’t surprise me. She takes a paycheck from admitted violator of the Espionage act, David Horowitz (click here to read Horowitz's rant against me when I called him on it).
