    Via the Free Beacon, the search for motives goes on for a media that hasn’t yet nailed down whether “Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez” is a Muslim name. Andrew Stiles’s alternate headline for this one is better than mine, frankly: “Andrea Mitchell: Is there a chance the Muslim extremist Tennessee gunman was also a redneck?” Nope, no chance, as it turns out. Which is surprising. I bet there were some sweet deer-hunting opportunities during that mysterious months-long trip to Jordan that Abdulazeez took last year before he started writing cryptic blog posts about breaking free of one’s earthly prison and entering...

    Andrea Mitchell had the chance to ask John Kerry, on live national TV, any question she wanted about the Iran deal. She could, for example, have confronted him over the lifting of the conventional arms and ballistic missile embargoes that were included as a nice little parting gift to Iran. Instead, on today's Morning Joe, Mitchell lobbed up the mushiest of softballs, asking Kerry "what that moment meant to you" when at the final negotiation meeting, he reminisced about going to Vietnam as a 22-year old "and that you never wanted to go to war without having exhausted the diplomacy."...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina argued that “titles are just titles” and Hillary Clinton’s “track record” includes the collapse of the Middle East and the failed Russian reset on Wednesday’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC. Fiorina said, “I come from a world where titles are just titles, and talk is just talk. It’s only in politics where titles and words mean a lot. In the rest of the world, it’s actually about what have you done, actions speak louder than words. People want to know are your words and your actions consistent and are they consistent over time.

On today's Morning Joe, Andrea Mitchell acknowledged the undeniable: that the last-minute decision by Saudi King Salman not to attend the White House summit, after previously having informed John Kerry that he would be there, was such an "in your face" snub, so embarrassing to Kerry and the Obama White House, that "I don't see any way that...

The U.S. government has always characterized the heroic raid by Seal Team Six that killed bin Laden as a unilateral U.S. operation, and has maintained that the CIA found him by tracking couriers to his walled complex in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Mitchell led into the segment by playing President Obama's condescending "I'm embarrassed for them" and "it's close to unprecedented" shots at the senators, and gave Psaki a platform to promote the administration's talking points on the issue.

"The Benghazi investigation by the Select Committee was viewed by many as overkill, that it had all been cleared up back two years ago," Mitchell said.

    It was almost a funny moment . . . until you realized that members of the press were openly laughing at the fecklessness of the ostensible leader of the free world. On today's Morning Joe, the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson, his voice occasionally cracking with emotion, repeatedly insisted that President Obama would use military force if necessary to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb. Andrea Mitchell eventually had enough, saying in a devastating aside "ask Bashir al Assad," an allusion of course to how President Obama ran away from his red line in Syria. Joe Scarborough laughingly joined in,...

And that visit at the invitation of Republicans is threatening to further strain the Obama administration's relations with Israel." Correspondent Andrea Mitchell emphasized how unwelcome Netanyhu was for the White House: "Arriving in Washington without fanfare late Sunday, Israel's prime minister is at the center of a political firestorm. Shunned by the President, Vice President, and Secretary of State for coming to lobby Congress against a...

    If congressional Republican wanted to make the ongoing controversy surrounding Benjamin Netanyahu even more of a partisan food fight, this is clearly the way to do exactly that.

Almost all GOP senators were listed as co-sponsors of a resolution by Sen.

Marcus said Republicans seem to address female sexuality only in the contexts of victimization or promiscuity.

    In an incident ignored by the media, race-baiter extraordinaire Andrea Mitchell and other big-name journalists candidly exposed their bigotry and racial prejudices at a friendly forum in the nation's capital last year. In an unusually candid conversation, mainstream media stars Mitchell, David Gregory, and Dana Milbank let loose in an orgy of Caucasian self-flagellation during a panel discussion titled, "Media: Race & Politics -- The Impact of Race in Politics 2012," at the National Action Network's conference in Washington, D.C. The left-wing street thug group is headed by none other than Jew-hating Obama ally Al Sharpton. Now's a good time...
  • LOL: Andrea Mitchell Claims Social Programs 'Gutted' By Sequester

    Quick: how much were Social Security, Medicaid and food stamps cut by the sequester? Zero, you say? Those programs were exempted from sequester cuts, and Medicare was reduced by only 2%? Correctomundo! So what was Andrea Mitchell thinking when she claimed on her MSNBC show that the sequester "gutted" social programs? You tell me. View the video here.
  • Angry Andrea Scolds Republican: 'Get Real', Ditch ObamaCare Delay To Avoid 'Hurting People'

    Why do Dems need Debbie Wasserman-Schultz—when they've got Andrea Mitchell? There was no mistaking Mitchell's anger on her MSNBC show today as she scolded Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz . "Get real," reprimanded Mitchell, twice telling Chaffetz the Republican bill delaying the implementation of ObamaCare was "dead on arrival." For good measure, Mitchell put the onus on Republicans to cave in order to avoid "hurting people." View the video here.
  • Andrea Mitchell's Pro-Obama Syria Spin Too Much Even For Carville

    How do you know when an MSM member is pushing pro-Obama spin to the absurd? When even the most partisan of Dems, in the person of James Carville, can't stomach it. On today's Morning Joe, Andrea Mitchell, claiming that the world was "coalescing" around Obama's position on Syria, said that there was "a lot of optimism" surrounding the Obama team's negotiations with the Russians. Mitchell said she had seen this kind of thing before back in the 80s, when the US negotiated arms control with the Soviet Union. "It starts slowly but things happen," comforted Mitchell. All this was too...

    Well, there was a Blue Moon just last month, so maybe the time was right for some rare criticism of President Obama by Andrea Mitchell. Mitchell didn't hold back on today's Morning Joe, accusing the President of "bungling," being "ambivalent," and of undercutting his Secretary of State and Vice-President. For good measure, Mitchell suggested that in his heart of hearts, fellow panelist and former Obama spox Robert Gibbs agreed with her acidulous assessment. View the video here.
  • NBC's Mitchell: Trust Obama, He's Going to Bomb Syria 'From A Very Cautious Anti-War Perspective'

    On her Friday MSNBC program, host Andrea Mitchell tried to ease the concerns of Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee and other members of Congress calling for a congressional vote on military action in Syria: "Barack Obama, as you know better than I do, was one of the leading Democratic politicians against the Iraq War. So if he says that this is different, that the evidence is there....does that persuade you since he has always come at this from a very cautious anti-war perspective?" [Listen to the audio] Accepting the odd juxtaposition of the President launching missile strikes from an "anti-war perspective,"...

    First Chuck Todd, now Andrea Mitchell and even former Obama spox-turned-NBC-analyst Robert Gibbs agree: NBC's decision to produce a miniseries about Hillary Clinton is a "bad idea." Gibbs and Mitchell lamented the series on Andrea's early-afternoon MSNBC show today. View the video here.
  • WATCH: MSNBC host on Obama's remarks about Z trial: 'Wow! We really do have a black President'

    MSNBC co-host Toure praised President Obama’s first public remarks on the George Zimmerman verdict Friday, saying they reaffirm that “we really do have a black president.” The president surprised many by saying Trayvon Martin “could’ve been me 35 years ago,” despite the criticism he received for saying “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” back in March. Martin was shot by George Zimmerman in what a jury recently ruled was self-defense. Toure remarked: “I’ve been thinking lately, do we actually have a black president, or a president who happens to be black? …This moment was like, ‘Wow!...
  • MSNBC DENIES BIAS AFTER ANDREA MITCHELL LASHES OUT AT GOP OVER IMMIGRATION

    Breitbart Big Journalism ^ | July 11,2013 | JOHN NOLTE
    Andrea Mitchell appearing on MSNBC and declaring John McCain "heroic" over his position supporting immigration reform is not out of character for her. Nor is it odd that Mitchell would blast GOP foes of immigration reform and say they "ought to be ashamed." Andrea Mitchell leans left and regularly uses her weekday show on MSNBC to drive her agenda. What makes the moment newsworthy (you can watch the video below), though, is that when asked about it by Politico's Dylan Byers, MSNBC denied Mitchell had taken a position on immigration: "Andrea has not taken a position on this issue," said...

    Want to be "heroic" on immigration in Andrea Mitchell's eyes? Easy: team up with Chuck Schumer and President Obama to push amnesty through Congress. Want to earn Andrea's ire? Focus on border security. She'll scold you and say you should be "ashamed." Yes, there was Andrea on today's Morning Joe, praising amnesty-pushing McCain as "heroic," while scolding conservatives who want to focus on border security. They "should be ashamed," said Mitchell.

  • Robert Gibbs Rips Obama On 'Exceedingly Passive' IRS Scandal Response

    Et tu, Roberto? It was bad enough for President Obama to have Andrea Mitchell jump ship this morning. But now someone who is—arguably—even closer to home has taken a resounding shot at the President's mishandling of the IRS scandal. Appearing on Mitchell's MSNBC show this afternoon, former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs condemned the president's "exceedingly passive" language in discussing the scandal. Obama had said there'd be consequences "if" wrongdoing were found, and spoken of "losing patience." Gibbs was scathing: that's what "I do with my nine-year old." Ouch! View the video here.
