« Statler & Waldorf: German-Language Blog of the Week | Main | Letter to IG Metall: One German's Response »


Congrats! Man I've been checking this site just about daily for a long time now, and lurking in the comments sections. I have to say thanks for everyone's effort on this site (And Medienkritik Online) which is quite massive for something done in spare time.

Congratulations! Weiter so!

Congrats, guys! Keep up the excellent work! We really need you over here in Germany!

Happy Aniversary, guys!

This is the first blog I visit in the morning when I wake up. What you do is valuable to both Germans and Americans (due to the language barrier).

Keep up the great work!

Happy Anniversary!! Have a glass of champaign and celebrate!!!

Hey guys! Love the site.

I'm not a big fan of NPR, but I was listening to it for a moment yesterday, and they made reference to "German Chancellor Helmut Schroeder". Ha! It's Gerhard Schroeder!

They're so high brow over there. Much too smart for the rest of us.

Happy Anniversary from the conservative Klickguerilla ;)

Happy Anniversary! Keep on blogging!

Congrats.. I've found your blog very helpful and informative... most importantly it's given me some hope.

Congratulations on your birthday AND your success!!! :D

re: "On weekdays we typically have an audience of 2,500 to 3,000 unique visitors, on weekends, the number dips down to 1,800 to 2,000."

Hmmmm... lots of people logging in from work when they should be working, huh? *formulating plot to sneak up on my employees when they aren't looking*


Thanks for keeping up this blog.

Its the second (Sorry) one I visit each day when I can, but I ALWAYS make sure I read what you have posted, (as well as what folks say in the comments section). I always catch up on what I may have missed if I was absent for a few days, and I will always remain a ever loyal reader.

Its good to hear someone, and something, that is both German and positive about America. I knew there was a good chunk of Germany despite the image Schroeder projects, that still supported the US and all things decent in the world, and you are doing great in representing them, as well helping to spread the message to the world along with the many other bloggers your support has helped foster.

You have my many thanks, and may your blog continue for many years to come.

Congratulations, this is a daily stop on my blog tour.

Like many others, I'm a faithful reader but seldom comment. I find reading the comments intelligent and very informative and has improved my knowledge of Germany tremendously.

Thanks to Ray, David and all the erudite commenters here whether they differ in opinion or not.

Congrats, gentlemen. It's no mystery why your blog is successful. It's well-written, updated regularly, the articles are original, and your material is frequently quoted on other important blogs. This is what separates your blog from 99.95 percent of the rest of the blogs out there. There are tens of thousands of political blogs, and there are probably less than a hundred that are regularly bookmarked, on either sides of the political spectrum. This is something to be proud of.

I appreciate the work you guys do, and I am sure that I am also speaking for the many lurkers reading Medienkritik who don't post.

Happy Anniversary! We're grateful for your hard work and insightful comments, which give many of us a peak into viewpoints that we would otherwise never know about.

Best wishes to you.

Happy Anniversary :)

Congratulations, David and Ray !

You're the undisputed primus inter pares of the German blogosphere, and do a true service to the nation with your blog ( though too many Germans won't realize that anytime soon ).

Politically correct thinking (which today in Europe, strangely enough, seems to include anti-Americanism)unfortunately doesn't flourish solely within the German borders. For a very substantial part the German MSM are not unique. The intellectual creativity of the politically correct left-leaning media-elite in general should not be overestimated. Apart from slight variations, depending on local circumstances, one often finds exactly the same kind of reasoning, the same fallacious arguments and the same lies in the media throughout Europe. That's why the 'politically incorrect observations' on German media-bias in this blog, thanks to the sharp wits of David and Ray and some of the regular commenters, are so infinitely valuable, not only for American and German readers, but also for European readers outside Germany. For me, being Dutch, this blog is almost essential reading.
David and Ray, I admire your tenacity. Thanks a lot and congratulations.

Thanks for keeping up this blog.

Happy birthday guys. A very big smooch and many thanks........


Although I rarely post, I visit this blog throughout the day.

Keep up the good work.

Congratulations to David and Ray for a great blog, and for getting me in the Wall Street Journal. :-) Also thanks to the many fine commenters here; this blog's comments section is one of the most readable of all of the blogs on the Internet.

I was on a Bahama beach where I overheard two lovely, topless goddesses discussing your site, so also being a fan, I struck up a conversation. They told me how much they wanted to meet you two. I would of forwarded you their numbers but I lost it in that nights drinking. Sorry.

You have fans everywhere. :)

Note from David: Paul, this is one of this blog's most depressing comments... WHY DIDN'T YOU KEEP THE NUMBERS!!!???
Hmm... We need to solve this problem somehow. I might come over from Germany with my Medienkritik sweatshirt and just wait at that beach...

i really hate it!
that's why i come back over and over...

Thank you, gentlemen, and congratulations. Long live the revolution!

"I might come over from Germany with my Medienkritik sweatshirt and just wait at that beach..."

You guys have sweatshirts?

The only good political sweatshirt I have is Bureaucrash's "Enjoy Capitalism" (and a few sickle-and-hammer shirts to confuse my professors), but I'd love to add a Medienkritik to my wardrobe.

Only question is what would be a good logo?

Also, froh Geburtstag

Congratulations guys!

Unfortunately, I didn't discover this excellent blog until Bush's Mainz visit; but, it's been a daily must ever since. The posts are very well written and interesting, and I have yet to find a better comment section. I even have a folder for my favorite Medienkritik posts--to include some of the best (IMO) reader comments. The folder is growing very quickly in size!

Thank you and GODSPEED!

P.S. I want a sweatshirt too! Any T-shirts? Sounds like a good fundraising opportunity.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I've only been reading for a week and that I'm so happy to have finally found a site like this one. I was actually starting to believe that there was nobody in Germany who sees through the crap which passes itself off as intelligent, progressive thought in this country.

Congratulations from Gabi and N. Hale.

Thank you, David and Ray!

From a German living in the US. Happy birthday and thanks for the great work that you are doing.

Happy Anniversary, Medienkritik! I will never forget our Pro-Bush-Demo in Mainz and hope to see you guys soon again. Keep on your great blogging!
Stefan :-)

Happy Birthday to MEDIENKRITIK with its bunch of honest and brave German fellows from an old Prussian/American in sunny Florida.

I would LOVE a Medienkritik sweatshirt. Any chance of getting one? Keep up the good work.

@ readers...

Thank you. It means a lot to us to hear from you.

Oh yes, BTW: We will have t-shirts available very soon...stay tuned...

---Ray D.

I want to add my congratulations, and a big thank you.


When drinking and with women, I've lost lots more than phone numbers. Piles of money, blacked out long weekends, a rifle, clothes.... Again, sorry, I won't let it happen again.

Kees Rudolf,

Right on about the aesthetic abilities of the left to package attractive and seductive images of a Utopian future. Many of the leftist I talk to are totally ignorant of economics, history, political theory and practice and even major historical events.....and yet they "feel" that because they are hip to the newest fashion in shoes, music, foods that they are knowledgeable. "Hip" is even synonymous with being current.

We can see this phenomena in the popularity of Che Guevara tee-shirts. When I mention that Che lead and managed the execution of 1,600 Cuban doctors, lawyers, writers, artist and political opponents in the Havana Stadium. I then mention that in his book his snide remarks targeting blacks, homosexuals and Jews. Further blank looks.

I am not a artist, but I recognize the power of art to influence. I feel that an artistic assault on the left would be even more effective than a informational, especially on those unwilling or unable to think critically.
