  • Benghazi and Obama: the media is trying to shore up this desperate administration

    The Telegraph ^ | October 24, 2012 | James Delingpole
    Here's one thing we can be sure of about the Benghazi affair: almost everything we've been told since by the mainstream media is a lie, invariably one designed to shore up the creaky and desperate Obama administration. Consider how quickly the story was spun by Obama's amen corner in the liberal MSM. It should, according to any objective news sense, have been a shocking tale of how a woefully unprotected ambassador was murdered in cold blood by Al Qaeda affiliates. Instead, it almost immediately became – of all things – an excuse to demonstrate why Mitt Romney was unfit to...
  • ABC, CBS & NBC Blackout! Major New Findings in Fast & Furious Scandal Ignored

    Over the weekend the Univision network broke major news in the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal. They found 57 previously unreported guns used in crimes by Mexican cartels, but ABC, CBS and NBC have yet to report the Spanish-language network’s findings. There were zero mentions on Sunday night’s ABC's World News and CBS's Evening News (NBC's Nightly News was pre-empted by Ryder Cup coverage) or on any of Monday’s morning shows. The blackout on ABC’s broadcasts is particularly confounding since they have an excerpt from Univision's report on ABC's official Web site. The refusal by ABC, CBS or NBC to...
  • Tea Party Movement Looks Stalled; Half Like it Less as they Hear More

    ABC ^ | 4/15/12 | Gary Langer
    Wither the Tea Party? A major force in the 2010 midterm elections, the movement has stalled in public popularity, its support well below a majority and decidedly lukewarm. And Americans by a broad 23-point margin say the more they hear about the Tea Party movement, the less they like it, rather than liking it more. That negative buzz has worsened from a 9-point gap in an ABC News/Washington Post poll as the movement was gathering speed two years ago. And its avenues for resurgence may be limited: Interest in learning more about Tea Party is down 7 points from spring...
  • Stossel Admits He Could've Had Breitbart's ACORN Scoop But Passed Due to ABC's Politics (WHOA!)

    Despite slipping mostly under the radar, John Stossel disclosed something on his FBN program last Thursday that should have garnered a lot more attention. As he chatted with guest Andrew Breitbart, Stossel admitted that the conservative publisher had offered him the James O'Keefe/Hannah Giles/ACORN scoop, but the former ABC Newser declined due to politics at the network he used to work for (video follows with transcript and commentary): JOHN STOSSEL, HOST: Speaking of the mainstream media, I am a little bit ashamed of this one, but I am revealing now for the first time publicly that when I worked at...
  • ABC Piece Calls Governor Palin “Sideshow”, Doesn’t Mention Her Main Source

    Conservatives 4 Palin ^ | 06/08/2011 | Doug Brady
    ABC Piece Calls Governor Palin “Sideshow”, Doesn’t Mention Her Main Source is Mitt Romney’s “Wonderful Friend”Unbelievable. Late yesterday ABC’s Huma Khan wrote a piece on the Republican race in which she essentially called Governor Palin a “sideshow candidate”. No, she didn’t say that directly, but given the large picture of Governor Palin right beneath the words “sideshow candidate”, the intent is clear. That ABC would do a hit-piece on Governor Palin is not exactly “unbelievable”, of course. Far from it. But here’s what I found noteworthy. The main source for Huma’s article is Ron Kaufman, whom Khan describes as a:...
  • Stephanopoulos Cites Tea Party ‘Losing Steam,’ But Skips Obama’s Plummeting Numbers

    On Tuesday’s World News, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos touted how “we've got a new poll out tonight that shows the Tea Party may be losing steam nationwide” as its unfavorable rating has “gone up eleven points in the last couple of months to 50 percent. Their favorable rating has gone down.” Stephanopoulos and ABC, however, didn’t find time, in multiple stories on the oil leak, to inform viewers how the same ABC News/Washington Post survey, released Tuesday morning, found that by 49 to 44 percent the public disapproves of President Obama's handling of the disaster. In addition, “the number of Americans...
