NRO’s MSM watchdog.

Wow O Wow


Want to check out the girl’s table at Michael’s, the Manhattan media hang-out? Well, you can get the same experience, without ordering the pricey Cobb Salad, on the web by logging on to , a site that launched  about a month ago.   Its founders include ex-editor and William Morris agent Joni Evans, columnist Liz Smith, CBS’s Lesley Stahl and former advertising exec Mary Wells, along with a number of their media and  celebrity  girlfriends.  The site’s official name is Women On the Web and they say they had to buy the domain name from a porn site. 

Although Peggy Noonan is one of the founders, the site is definitely limousine liberal.  The other day Mary Wells in a post shared  who were the doctors you could trust in  St. Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu Sur Mer and the best limousine drivers in Monaco, Barcelona, St. Tropez , Portofino and the Amalfi Coast.  (No, I am not making this up.) Mary also complained in an  earlier post about how  the Russian billionaires were  ruining the Cote d’Azur.  It seems you can’t take a decent run around the top of Cap Ferrat anymore.   The Russians’ damn dogs get in the way. Today  Lis Smith is eulogizing  former Texas governor Ann Richards and quoting from one of her “prescient letters” in which Ann wrote,    “ We cannot offend all the world to the point where they don’t eat our Fritos or drive our John Deeres…  we look like a bunch of inept nincompoops at the UN, with the inability to muster a paltry majority on the Security Council.”  She also is sharing her photo album of pictures of the two of them together. 

What seems to be drawing the most responses is a poll about  which woman has the toughest skin?   The choice is Hillary, Condi, Kathy Lee, Martha or Katie.   A tough choice, indeed  but Martha is in the lead and Hillary and Katie, kind of like the way they are doing everywhere else, are the losers.
