  • Must Read Book: How the Media Ignored the Real News to Get Obama Re-Elected

    It's been a week full of liberal media bias examples, but after all, every week is full of them. We saw NBC news purposely edit another video clip smearing Second Amendment supporters in order to push a gun control agenda. This is the same agenda President Obama just happens to be pushing as he continues to single out the NRA and its members as enemy number one. The move by NBC impacted public opinion for a few hours until luckily new media, the team over at Twitchy.com precisely, debunked the entire thing. Although this was a case of editing to...

    Andrew Revkin published the email today at the NYT Dot Earth blog as a comment in that thread, so now I am free to reproduce it here where I was not last night. Below is the comment left by Andy, quoting Annan’s email, bolding added: The climate scientist James Annan sent these thoughts by email: ‘Well, the press release is a bit strange, because it sounds like it is talking about the Aldrin et al paper which was published some time ago, to no great fanfare. I don’t know if they have a further update to that. Anyway, there have...
  • Burger King To DNA Test Its Beef After Food Processor Used Horse Meat

    CBS Tampa Bay ^ | February 1, 2013 10:55 AM
    Burger King will reportedly test its meat to make sure it is 100 percent beef after horse DNA was found in beef products from one of its food processors. Diego Beamonte, Burger King’s vice president of global quality, told Bloomberg Businessweek that “details for DNA testing have not been worked out, and no timeline has been set for implementing the new procedures.” Burger King addressed this topic after it was disclosed that Silvercrest Foods sold beef products containing horse meat to other retailers. …

    Bob Menendez ducks out of NJ Chamber of Commerce event, ditches reporters at elevator Posted By David Martosko On 9:11 AM 02/01/2013 @ 9:11 AM Bob Menendez, the combative New Jersey senator beset by allegations that he had sex with at least one underage prostitute in the Dominican Republic, hurried out of a Marriott ballroom in Washington, D.C. after a speech Thursday night, out-dashing a gaggle of reporters and ignoring questions all the way to a welcome elevator. The senator was speaking to an annual gathering of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, but members of the media weren’t interested...

  • Sandra Fluke: Opposing the Contraception Mandate Is Just Like Opposing Leukemia Coverage

    On MSNBC this afternoon, Sandra Fluke truly outdid herself, attempting to argue that the people who disagree with the contraception mandate on religious freedom grounds are in the same category as people who oppose insurance coverage for leukemia. Just...watch: Sandra Fluke: Opponents to Contraception Mandate Have 'Very Extreme Ideas About What's important to note is that some of the folks who are continuing to object to this policy are actually worried about employers who are private companies, not religiously affiliated employers in any way, but the boss has a particular religious concern, and they want to be able to deny...

  • NBC: Chicago Gun Restrictions Ineffective Because of Gun Rights Elsewhere

    02/01/2013 6:02:23 PM PST · by chessplayer · 47 replies
    In a report at the top of Thursday's NBC Nightly News, correspondent Kevin Tibbles fretted that "Despite bylaws that prohibit gun shops within city limits...Chicago appears to be awash in guns." A sentiment that echoed ABC World News anchor Diane Sawyer, who on Wednesday announced to viewers that the whole nation was "awash in guns." The declaration from Tibbles teed up gun control advocate and UCLA law professor Adam Winkler to claim that problem with Chicago's gun restrictions was that they were not universal: "Chicago certainly has strict gun control laws. But the difficulty is that outlying areas outside of...

    Can Paul VI be beatified? On December 20, 2012, Benedict XVI authorized the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to promulgate a decree recognizing the “heroic virtues” of Paul VI, pope from 1963 to 1978. Now only a miracle obtained through the intercession of Paul VI is necessary to proceed to his beatification. Apparently the postulator for his cause, Fr. Antonio Marrazzo, has already chosen a case to present to the medical commission, the cure of an unborn child diagnosed with severe malformation. According to Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa’s Vatican Insider, the beatification could take place in 2013. Paul...

Bob Menendez wrote to his longtime campaign donor Dr. Salomon Melgen on Jan. 4 to cover private jet travel to the Dominican Republic represented more than one-third of his cash-on-hand — and perhaps as much as 90 percent — according to an analysis of his most recent U.S. Senate financial disclosure report. Dan O’Brien, Menendez’s chief of staff, told WNBC-TV4 in New York on Tuesday...

    Geraldo Rivera declares himself a 'moderate Republican' as he eyes U.S. Senate run By Brent Johnson/The Star-Ledger on February 01, 2013 at 12:55 PM, updated February 01, 2013 at 5:08 PM TRENTON — It looks like Geraldo Rivera is already prepping his platform. One day after announcing on his radio show that he is "truly considering" running in 2014 for the U.S. Senate seat now held by New Jersey's Frank Lautenberg, Rivera amped up his message today in a television interview and a column on the Fox News Latino website. The longtime media personality portrayed himself as a moderate Republican...

    President Obama and Kathleen Sebelius are back at it. Conscience-minded business owners with more than 50 employees will continue to be forced to pay for coverage for contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization procedures. This includes Michigan businessman John Kennedy and Missouri businessman Frank O’Brien, both of whom are represented and defended by our CatholicVote.org Legal Defense Fund. Pro-life organizations, schools or charities which are not explicitly religious will still be forced to pay for abortion inducing drugs if they have more than 50 employees. The new rules provide NO options for private individuals who seek insurance coverage that respects their...

    Budweiser debuts new Super Bowl ad showing the life of iconic Clydesdale from just two weeks old ..This year's Budweiser Super Bowl ad isn't funny or sexy, but you just might shed a tear. For decades, Anheuser-Busch has used its famous Clydesdales in Super Bowl ads for Budweiser. Instead of a herd of majestic hoof-stomping steeds thundering across a valley floor, this year's 60-second ad centers on the bond an adorable Clydesdale foal shares with his trainer. The latest star is barely two weeks old. A foal born January 16 at Anheuser-Busch's Warm Springs Ranch near the mid-Missouri town of...

    Hillary Clinton has logged about a million diplomatic miles in the past four years, but her political odometer has been reset to factory zero as she exits the State Department Friday with the highest approval rating of any potential 2016 contender. Even as Clinton concluded her victory lap on her way out of office this week, there were signs that the 65-year-old former first lady is still afflicted by the same problem that hampered her during the up-and-down 2008 campaign: an inability to clearly define her leadership or governing philosophy. An instinctive team player who spent two decades working at...
