dowd was one of the first inside the nytimes to call judith miller out for miller's convoluted involvement in the plame-leaking scandal, and her sloppy, if not downright made-up, reporting on the lead up to the iraqi war.

But gender constructions are Dowd's playthings: She also suggests that Donald Rumsfeld is menopausal and that Al Gore is "practically lactating." Dowd subverts gender stereotyping by treating it as a laugh riot; surely her giggling does not disqualify her feminism.
Dowd has always been an equal-opportunity provocateur, winning a Pulitzer for her evisceration of the Clinton administration between flirtily poking the elder Bush with a stick and eating his son for breakfast.

 Maureen Dowd: A Hermes Study in Bitterness - Bernard Chapin - MensNewsDaily.com™
Maureen Dowd is a name known to many men due to her status as one of the most prominent male bashers of our day.
Dowd is the perfect subject for this essay as she is the quintessential bitter, older woman.
Dowd, who claims to have an inkling of what goes on in the world, must have missed an early memo from Ti-Grace Atkinson declaring, “Feminism is the theory; lesbianism is the practice.” That its female devotees become less desirable to men would be regarded a welcome byproduct.

Maureen Dowd's Errant Ellipsis and Tannenhaus Words of Wolfowitz which have touched off a Blogosphere feeding frenzy which has spilled over into the mainstream media.
Whether she intended to distort the president's remarks or not, the fact is that her use of an ellipsis was not in keeping with good journalistic practice and did have the effect of conveying a false impression.
Dowd either purposely distorted the words of the President to present him as inept and out of touch in the light of the al-Qaeda bombing in Riyadh or innocently failed to observe proper protocol in the use of an ellipsis when truncating a quotation.

In Dowd's surreal political world where make-believe substitutes for reality and bigotry passes for wisdom Gore became the martyr, a victim of the Bush family, that vicious political "cartel" as she once described it.
That Maureen Dowd enthusiastically cheered a decision that had "no foundation in law" because it supported her ideological choice for the White House reveals how far down the fascist road America's media elite has travelled.
Dowd's support for Gore's assault on constitutional niceties and the rule of law is really no surprise as this is the same penetrating intellect that called Florida's Cuban community a bunch of totalitarians because they resisted Elian's illegal return to Castro's paradise.

 Maureen Dowd's misguided new book. - By Katie Roiphe - Slate Magazine
But Dowd is pretending to cover cultural trends with journalistic accuracy, and it is this pretense that gives her arguments a shoddy feel.
Much of what Dowd observes in the piece is true—the nostalgic passion for the 1950s, the increasing number of educated women opting to be housewives or change their names when they marry, the success of books like The Rules.
Dowd herself criticizes the feminists of the 1970s for imagining a sea of identical, sexless women in navy blazers descending on the workplace.

column yesterday, Dowd tried a fix, inserting the complete text of the quote she had originally truncated in a new context, perhaps hoping that use of this full version of the quote will absolve her previous ellipsis.
Dowd, but her cropping of the quotation, which any reasonable reader can see doesn't in fact turn the meaning "upside down," is minor, even negligible, compared to the journalistic sins of Jayson Blair and Rick Bragg.
Dowd for such a silly reason, and an even greater shame if they were doing so based solely on "tips" provided by well-meaning but wrong-headed columnists writing for rival papers (no offense).

 Separating fact from fiction - Countdown with Keith Olbermann - MSNBC.com
Maureen Dowd, columnist of “The New York Times,” and author of “Are Men Necessary?” and “Bushworld” joined ‘Countdown’ on Thursday to explain why she feels Oprah’s only correct option now is to remove her endorsement, figuratively and literally, from Frey's book and comment on the growing struggle over spying for the Bush Administration.
DOWD:  Well, it's simply already been proven not to be true.  The “Times” did a fantastic story, where they interviewed, you know, FBI agents involved in the case.  And already there have been a lot of domestic, domestic calls and innocent Americans swept up.
DOWD:  No, they're two entirely different things, because when Bill Clinton would deceive, he would throw in a semantic clue that let you know he was deceiving.  “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” we knew what he meant by that.  You know, I didn't break the laws of this country.

On May 14th, 2003, Maureen Dowd wrote a column called Osama's Offspring which, among other things, accused the Bush Administration of a "lulling triumphalism" in the wake of the lightening success of U.S. Forces in taking Iraq.
Dowd used this claim to assert that Bush had encourage Americans to relax their guard against al Qaeda and that therefore Bush was repsonsible for the deaths of eight Americans killed in an al Qaeda attack in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Dowd's name has already spawned a verb "dowdify" and a noun "dowdification" and her name has become synonomous with unreliability, trickery and deceit by opinion writers.

 Maureen Dowd | NewsBusters.org
The topic of Maureen Dowd's subscription-required column of this morning, Is Chivalry Shivved?, is the war of words between Hillary and John McCain, as the two top presidential contenders recently fired some early shots over the other's bow on the topic of responsibility for the N. Korean nuclear mess.
Dowd's ire is unmistakeable when it comes to Hillary's insufficient Bush bashing: "She has been like a silent-film star, lacking a voice in this chilling time when the Bush administration has Photoshopped the Constitution, portrayed critics as traitors, and spurred terrorism with a misconceived and mismanaged war in Iraq."
Dowd was prompted to ask after reading a recent Times' health section article about a new study on the “Macbeth effect," which concluded that people who washed their hands after contemplating an unethical act were less troubled by their thoughts than those who didn’t.

 SIVACRACY.NET: Maureen Dowd Wants To Know If The Feminist Movement Was A Cruel Hoax
Maureen Dowd asks: "So was the feminist movement some sort of cruel hoax?" Me, I’m asking the same thing about the New York Times’ reputation for quality journalism.
So per Dowd the early feminists were naive and misguided because they didn't value or recognize the importance of shopping and make-up and sexy shoes and cute boyfriends.

 American Politics Journal -- Maureen Dowd's FauxGate
Hillary's first dilemma of 2001 is that, having lived on a public dole all her adult life, she has none of the household traps -- dishes, bed linens, pots, pans, bathroom plungers, brooms, mops, dust rags -- that are the due of a virgin bride, or at least a bride rarely touched by human hands.
Dowd fell back to this point, trying to side step the fact she told me and others there was a registry for Hillary.
Dowd is also trying to pretend that she didn't substantiate Republican claims that Hillary herself established the registry.

 The Immutable Laws of Maureen Dowd
MAUREEN DOWD'S New York Times columns used to be fun.
The First Law is the reason that Dowd used to be so much fun to read--it's the reason she won the 1999 Pulitzer for her columns on the Lewinsky scandal.
Likewise, in the "alpha girls" column, Dowd never considers that there could be sound reasons of state for snubbing Germany--for instance, a "forgive and forget" policy might encourage politicians in other countries to pander to crude anti-Americanism, a pandering that would have the effect of reinforcing and strengthening the sentiment among the general population.
