I Called It In February: NYT Reports Brian Williams Transfers to MSNBC

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

“Williams to Stay at NBC, but Not as News Anchor,” the New York Times claims tonight: NBC is planning to announce on Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his position as the anchor of its “Nightly News” show, four months after the network suspended him for exaggerating his role in a helicopter incident […]

Thursday, May 28th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

Over at the PJ Lifestyle blog, I have an interview with Jimmy Wallace, the creator and prime mover behind the annual Dallas International Guitar Show, now almost 40 years old, which starts tomorrow and through Sunday at Dallas’s Fair Park. If you’re at the show tomorrow and see me, stop by and say hi.

Gavin McInnes: All You Eds Look Alike to Me

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

Ed Morrissey, Ed Schultz, Ed Driscoll — I guess all of us Eds look alike to Gavin McInnes of The Rebel.media, the founder of Vice.com, and a frequent guest at Fox’s Red Eye (and who sports an amazing hipster beard, unlike us Eds*), who makes an amusing gaffe about 30 seconds into his latest video, […]

In the Beginning was the Word of Buckley, and the Word went Forth…

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

“In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word went forth,” Elizabeth Scalia, aka the Anchoress writes. “And Goldberg begat Lileks; Lileks begat Reynolds; Reynolds begat Anchoress (with Ed Morrissey!); Anchoress begat…:” Got a wonderful email from a reader who is being received into the Catholic Church in 2015, and it is in many ways […]

And the 2014 Fabulous 50 Blog Award Goes To…

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014 - by Ed Driscoll

Your humble narrator, voted “Best Media-Watcher” of 2014 as part of fellow veteran blogger Doug Ross’s long-running annual award series: Ed Driscoll: A witty, memorable artisan whose specialty is dissecting the Left. Pretty good company to be in, alongside fellow PJM-associated bloggers and columnists such as Glenn Reynolds, Victor Davis Hanson, Bill Whittle, Andrew C. […]

Guestblogging at Instapundit This Week

Monday, May 5th, 2014 - by Ed Driscoll

As a result, posting here at Ed Driscoll.com will be a bit light, as I’m back on the bridge of the mighty USS Instapundit this week, along with my fellow Insta-guest bloggers including Ann Althouse, Randy Barnett, Elizabeth Price Foley, Sarah Hoyt, Mark Tapscott, and Michael Totten. And Glenn himself, although at a much needed […]

A Long Time Ago, in a Blogosphere Far, Far Away

Thursday, April 17th, 2014 - by Ed Driscoll

@instapundit Blog map I created 6/3/02. Want to see if anyone knows of any earlier; I think 1st of its kind. RT? pic.twitter.com/xh1g3QPOJx — Rob Neppell (@rneppell) April 17, 2014 I never posted anything to mark the 12th anniversary of my blog last month, but this Tweet by Rob Nebbell, aka N.Z. Bear, found by […]

HOT & Bothered

Sunday, April 6th, 2014 - by Ed Driscoll

“High-Occupancy Toll lanes: another nightmare from the suburbs-hating traffic planners,” another intensely detailed article from Jonathan Last in response, at the Weekly Standard: HOT lanes are often derisively referred to as “Lexus lanes”—that is, special roads where Richie Rich can speed along in his roadster, a monocle in one eye and hundred-dollar bills flying out […]

What’s Missing in My Byline?

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 - by Ed Driscoll

If you look closely at my PJM byline, you’ll notice something odd. Well, actually, you probably won’t notice it. Since I began blogging, I’ve abbreviated my name. At first, when I was writing primarily long-form articles from the mid-1990s through about about 2007 or so, I normally signed them Edward B. Driscoll, Jr., including in […]

The Most Underreported Domestic News Stories of 2013

Monday, December 30th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

Call them “the ‘mainstream’ media,” the “legacy media,” “old media,” or whatever you like, the most underreported domestic news story of 2013 was the complete collapse of their credibility. It’s this year’s most underreported story, because the media rarely report on their fellow compatriots’ errors out of professional courtesy. For example, in 2004, Tom Brokaw […]

Barack to the Future: Mark Steyn on America Alone in 2006

Thursday, November 7th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

When PJM launched its Freedom Academy Book Club recently, the powers that be asked me to upload my recent author interviews to the site. However, I decided to go one better, and include in the mix some of the many interviews I’ve recorded since I began podcasting in 2006, and producing PJM’s Sirius-XM radio show, […]

Triangulating ‘Nighthawks’

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but I changed the masthead of my blog on Monday night. The previous design, which I had grown more than a little tired of, contained a close-up from an early Photoshop I made in 2010, when with the help of one of its paint filters and the biggest […]

The Ed Gallery

Sunday, October 6th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

As frightening as the Obama administration can be at times, I’d like to think that the following is a much cheerier exhibition than anything Rod Serling ever proffered to TV network audiences. Back in November of 2011, I ran a retrospective of some of my more interesting Photoshops, created both for my own PJM column […]

Off on the Road to (Bungle) Iran

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

“Goodbye Syria, On to Iran!” is the title of the latest piece by Victor Davis Hanson for his PJM column. And having grown up watching the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope “Road” pictures on the late show, and having a dad who absolutely worshiped Crosby, of course I had to Photoshop the poster for Road […]

You Heard It Hear First

Monday, May 13th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

“It may be time to start addressing our President as ‘Barack Milhous Obama.’ What did he know, and when did he know it?” — Rush Limbaugh, today. “Barack Milhous Obama” — Headline, Ed Driscoll.com, this past Friday, May 10th. (And we previously used it as a headline in October of 2011.) Update: As the Professor writes, “The […]

I Got Your ‘Six Degrees of Steven Seagal’ Right Here, Breitbart.com Boys

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

John Hayward of the Breitbart.com group blog explores “Six Degrees of Steven Seagal:” Could Steven Seagal be any more awesome?  I’ll bet every major event in human history can be linked to Seagal by no more than six degrees of separation.  Okay, maybe seven for the stuff that happened before he was born.  Well, the […]

RIP, Andrew Breitbart, the Ultimate Happy Warrior

Friday, March 1st, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

Today is the first anniversary of the death of the ultimate happy warrior, Andrew Breitbart. I met and interviewed Andrew on several occasions from 2005 until his death last year at age 43, which was the very definition of the phrase “untimely passing.” Last year, shortly after he passed away, I dusted off the cassette […]

My Back E-Pages

Sunday, January 27th, 2013 - by Ed Driscoll

I have a lengthy article at the PJ Lifestyle blog on the books that I would love to see in the Kindle (and/or Nook) format. It’s also a pretty good insight into my own rather idiosyncratic interests, given that these are all books listed are titles I’ve enjoyed for one reason or another over the […]

Ed meets Edward Hopper: About the New Banner

Saturday, December 8th, 2012 - by Ed Driscoll

When PJM began planning for their 1,723,987th site redesign earlier this fall, the in-house art department came up with a redesign of the logo that Stacy Tabb originally designed for me back in 2005, but this time, with my photo built into it. I did not want to stare for 12 hours a day at […]

From Bauhaus to Ed’s House

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 - by Ed Driscoll

Looking for a lengthy review of Mies van der Rohe: A Critical Biography, New and Revised Edition by Franz Schulze and Edward Windhorst? Of course you are! Which is why, in addition to all of the usual political stuff here, I have just such a review over at the PJ Lifestyle blog. And yes, in […]
