  • Disgusting!… ABC Outs 13 Year-Old Witness to Trayvon Martin Killing

    ABC Outs Child Witness— ABC News outed the 13 year-old minor who witnessed the Trayvon Martin killing. The minor said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before the shooting. WRKO reported on the second witness who confirmed that Zimmerman was attacked. ABC News reported: George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News. Zimmerman had claimed he had...
  • These Are The Places In America Where Alcohol Is Still Banned (Ghosts Of Prohibition)

    These are the places in America where alcohol is still banned The year was 1933. America's fourteen-year experiment in sobriety was over; the federally mandated ban on the sale and manufacture of alcohol had been lifted. All across the U.S., people welcomed the repeal of prohibition with open arms and flowing taps. Or rather, most of them did. Meet the counties where America's "noble experiment" never died. When prohibition lifted almost eighty years ago, many communities (particularly in the Bible Belt) voted to keep alcohol bans in place at the local level. Today, there are still more than 200 "dry"...
  • Newt: Would ABC ever air a show that portrays Muslims the way “GCB” portrays Christians?

    In an appearance on Fox News this morning, Newt Gingrich returned to his roots; he called out the double standard of the mainstream media --- and to good effect. The subject of his judgment this time? ABC's new TV show, "GCB" based on the novel "Good Christian Bitches" From Politico: “Here’s to show you the biases of the elite media, look at the new show that’s on that has the word ‘Christian’ in it and I want you to take the exact name, drop out Christian and put in Muslim,” Gingrich said. “And ask yourself, is there any network that...
  • ABC, not PBS, first aired Obama’s 1991 Derrick Bell love-fest

    The Daily Calle6 ^ | 3/11/12 | Jeff Poor
    Whether or not it was the bombshell many hoped it would be, footage emerged last week — most notably on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” – from a 1991 speech by then-Harvard Law School student Barack Obama, asking an audience to “open [their] hearts and minds” to the controversial Harvard professor and Derrick Bell. That footage included an embrace between Bell and Obama in a portion that was cut out of the PBS “Frontline” documentary called “The Choice 2008.” Some have made the case that that editing was proof of a media campaign to protect then-Democratic presidential nominee Obama and hide...

    Kraft Philadelphia is seriously cheesed off over the direction of ABC's new dramedy "GCB" -- telling TMZ, the cream cheese company has decided to yank ALL of its advertisements from the controversial show. A rep for the company tells us, "Philadelphia has decided to pull its advertising from GCB ... We have received a few complaints from consumers and their opinions about our advertising are important to us." The rep adds, "We have recently decided to redirect our advertising to other programs."

    Does former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney believe ABC’s George Stephanopoulos coordinated with the White House over Stephanopoulos’ contraception question during Jan. 7’s New Hampshire primary debate? It sure sounds like that was what Romney was suggesting Wednesday night during CNN”s Republican presidential primary debate in Arizona moderated by John King. (RELATED: More on Mitt Romney) “John, what’s happened — and you recall back in the debate that we had George Stephanopoulos talking out about birth control, we wondered why in the world did contraception — and it’s like, why is he going there? Well, we found out when Barack Obama...

    daily caller ^ | 6/10/2011 | Richard Grenell
    ABC News and George Stephanopoulos have a credibility problem with conservatives and Middle America. And it seems to be getting worse. It’s not just that ABC News hired Bill Clinton’s White House spokesman and counselor George Stephanopoulos as a journalist; it’s that the pack mentality at ABC News doesn’t see it as a problem. “The planning meetings [at ABC News] have little political diversity. Everyone is left of center and at ease with their liberal ideals. The other viewpoint is rarely raised and never fully represented,” a current ABC News producer told me last week. ,,,,, But the bias at...

    NewsBusters ^ | January 27, 2012 | Kyle Drennen
    By daring to stand up for herself in recent exchange with President Obama, the media quickly labeled Arizona Governor Jan Brewer a villain. On Thursday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams was aghast: "Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this?....The governor of Arizona with her finger in the face of the President of the United States. You don't see that often or maybe ever." In the report that followed, White House correspondent Kristen Welker piled on with nasty sound bites attacking Brewer. A clip of left-wing MSNBC host Martin Bashir echoing Williams: "Is that really how...

    Obama ad cherry-picks fact checking organization We love ads that cite fact checkers, but President Obama’s first campaign ad contains a real blooper. It cites a positive fact check by PolitiFact, while ignoring a subsequent column taking away that original ruling. (UPDATE: There were two PolitiFact rulings that same day, and Obama choose the one most favorite, so we are revising our original ruling.)

    Newt Gingrich instantly brought the crowd to its feet last night at the last debate before Saturday's all important primary in South Carolina. What was the multitude cheering? Not his stance on tax policy, or on abortion, but rather his acid assault on the “elite media.” Gingrich expressed outrage that moderator John King of CNN would lead off the evening by asking about potentially damaging charges made by the Speaker’s second wife in an interview with ABC News's "Nightline." The audience howled its approval as Gingrich tore into the “destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media…” As...

    The year-and-a-half-old ABC “scoop”, in which Newt Gingrich’s ex boasts her one interview could end her one time hubby’s political career, is more about the contemporary media than it is about a presidential candidate. The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz said a mouthful when he posited that Marianne Gingrich does not say anything in the new interview that she hasn’t said in the past.The Esquire already ran with the same story in September 2010, if anyone cares. Notice how quickly the story of another election-year smear has morphed over to WHEN ABC will air it.

     Wickedly good Gingrich ad now out in SC as ABC loads the heavy artillery for tonight's  (televised) shelling of Camp Newt... Looks like (oven?) Mitt is really feeling the heat this week, as Rasmussen Reports shows Gingrich closing hard, already in a statistical dead-heat in South Carolina- schwing! Thus, here we have the latest defensive counter-blow from the Gingrich campaign while a flailing (and failing) Team Romney works to stave-off what's starting to look like a come-from-behind Newt victory (by flinging you-know-what at the wall): in short, desperate is as desperate does...

She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail. But now a “civil war” has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air! ABCNEWS suits determined it would be “unethical” to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South Carolina Primary, a curious decision, one insider argued, since the network has...

    Usually I go candidate by candidate and talk about how they did, but there is no need tonight. If you ever disagreed with the thought that “this is a weak Republican field” you need look no further than tonight’s debate. Weakness was all over that stage, especially when it came to attacking Mitt Romney! I really thought after Iowa and Rick Santorum’s essential “tie” with Mitt that tonight would have played out much different. Tonight was the night to take Mitt down! Tonight was the night we had a real champion in Rick Santorum! Finally the conservatives and the tea...

    TMZ has a story up about Barbara Walters‘ interview with Pres. Obama this afternoon. Barbara just finished interviewing the Prez at the White House. According to the source, during a break in the action, Barbara leaned over to Obama and said, “I need one more interview with you because I’m retiring next year.” Here’s the thing .. Barbara’s mic was open when she said it, and lots of people were listening. Turns out Walters is not retiring — probably not ever — but rather it’s her way of booking an interview, even the Commander in Chief. “Barbara has joked that...
