Quick, Hide the Women & Children; OKGOP Allegedly Engages in Political Parody

May 7, 2007

The so called Oklahoma Independent Media Center researchers seem to have too much times on their hands. How else to explain them having their panties in a bunch over the alleged scandal of the OKPGOP using a photo shopped picture of Speaker Nancy Pelosi on their website recently.

OIMC says on their website:“We are a grassroots, community-based collective striving to provide universal access to news media without corporate filtering. This is a progressive outlet committed to amplifying the voices of everyday people and especially those working for justice and equality in Oklahoma and around the world.”

Isn’t progressive code word for liberal Democrat? Read below an excerpt from their “expose”:

The front page of the Oklahoma Republican Party’s web site presents an image of the Speaker of the House, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, which they accurately refer to as “disturbing”.

But the disturbing aspect of the image is its relationship to reality and its use on the website of a supposedly reputable organization of mature adults to disparage its subject in a not-so-subtle fashion. The image is clearly digitally distorted (“Photoshopped“)in order to present the Speaker as old, haggard and ugly, with heavily rouged cheeks, sloppy lipstick and lines, bulges and veins that do not actually exist on the Speaker’s face.

First, If you want to investigate real political bias in the Oklahoma media, here’s a link for you. Second, we’re not so sure the photo has been altered. The pictures were clearly taken at different times. Speaker Pelosi has been in public life a long time, maybe the first picture is more recent.

Calendar Chaos

March 16, 2007

Since our name is the Oklahoma Political News Service, we try to keep our focus on Oklahoma politics and her politicians. But since it’s Friday and the day before St. Paddy’s day, we decided to deviate from our norm a little and post a piece on national politics – specifically the Iraq war and the Democrats’ continually changing timeline for withdrawal.

When we say continually changing, we literally mean continually changing! Click here (click on screen to start video) to view Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. David Obey trying to explain the timeline the Dems have devised for troop withdrawal. It seems they don’t even know their own plan! Enjoy.
