Noel Sheppard, R.I.P

Noel Shep­pard, who for years has been “The Guy” at the pre­dom­i­nant blog, “News­Busters” run by the DC-based Media Research Cen­ter, has passed away.  He was diag­nosed in Jan­u­ary with lung can­cer, and lost that fight yes­ter­day.  He was just 53.

Here’s the state­ment of his pass­ing from MRC founder, L. Brent Bozell.

Our Noel Shep­pard passed away yes­ter­day (Fri­day) morn­ing at about 5:00 AM. Say a prayer for the soul of a man we’ll all miss pro­fes­sion­ally, and many, many of us will miss per­son­ally as well. Noel was not just a force of nature, he was a very good man.

How quickly this all hap­pened. Just two months ago, Noel wrote about sud­denly get­ting can­cer at 53 called “Cancer’s Ray of Hope.” Nine days ago, he wrote us and said he was inter­ested in writ­ing about his “progress” — and he put “progress” in quotes. We were all wish­ing for bet­ter news, and really couldn’t imag­ine this was a bat­tle that would end this way.

Noel joined us and was intro­duced to us by Matt Sheffield at the found­ing of News­Busters in 2005, and he became our Asso­ciate Edi­tor. It must be said that no blog­ger here was more pro­lific and more pop­u­lar. We’ll have more to say in the com­ing days.

Requi­escat in pace.

Try­ing to remem­ber if I ever met Noel dur­ing my times out in DC.  The only thing that comes to mind is that if I ever did, it was briefly dur­ing a tour of the Media Research Cen­ter offices dur­ing 2012 when I was out there for the annual CPAC Conference.

Tim Gra­ham, a fel­low Wis­con­si­nite and Direc­tor of Media Analy­sis of the MRC, gave me a tour of the place and it might have been just a quick “Hello and a hand­shake” between us.

He was an amaz­ing writer and from what I’ve been told by friends, a great guy.  He will be missed.

Rest in Peace.

Kimmel Unloads on ObamaCare

What makes this really com­pelling is that Kim­mel in a sense rep­re­sents the new gen­er­a­tion of late night host; many of whom grew up and idol­ized the snarky, New York-based, liberally-biased com­edy of David Lettermann.

Oh, it doesn’t mean that the likes of Sarah Sil­ver­man (Kimmel’s old girl­friend) will sud­denly dump on lib­eral Democ­rats, but it does send a sig­nal that it’s okay to maybe add that mate­r­ial to your set every once and a while.

Sec­ondly, Kim­mel and his team of writ­ers kill this thing for point­ing out why the Afford­able Care Act’s design was flawed to begin it.  Young peo­ple would rather buy a $400 or $500 game con­sole like the PS4 and X Box One than health insur­ance.  That they don’t want to cover the costs of much wealth­ier, older Amer­i­cans through a new enti­tle­ment AND who­ever was the idiot who thought the “You Can Stay On Your Par­ents’ Plan Through Age 26″ was a good idea when you need them to be the ones pay­ing for you giant wealth redis­tri­b­u­tion scheme prob­a­bly should be hunt down and shot.

But that’s just me. Enjoy.
