  • Who is Richard Fowler, and why did he lie about Roy Moore on Fox News Channel?

    Speaking live on the Fox News Channel Tuesday night after Roy Moore was declared the loser in the special U.S. Senate election in Alabama, Richard Fowler said this: “Roy Moore is guilty of saying things like ‘LGBT people should be put to death.'” The program’s host, Shannon Bream, seemed taken aback by the assertion, which was clearly a lie – classic fake news, or in this case, fake commentary. Fox News @ Night Tuesday December 12 2017 (Video) Fowler, an up and coming leftist talking head, is a paid contributor to Fox News and he appears frequently on a variety...

    Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday that Americans “can’t afford to despair” in the wake of Donald Trump's election as president. Speaking to an audience at a Capitol Hill cultural center, Sotomayor said the nation can’t afford for a president to fail, but stressed that “every person has an obligation both to continue being heard and to continue doing the right thing.” The justice was responding to a question from radio host Bill Press about whether Trump’s victory made her feel apprehensive. She declined to answer directly, but said people “can’t afford to give up on pursuing the values...

    It hasn’t been a good week for the Democrats. And despite the ongoing effort by the mainstream media to paint the Republican Party as divided and irreparably damaged by their primary process, the signs continue to emerge that Democrats are facing a much tougher task in uniting behind their incredibly unlikable and untrustworthy front-runner. The week started with a remarkable brawl convention in Nevada with blood spilled, names called and a venerable senator booed off the stage.The divisive nature of the Democrats reached a ridiculous point Tuesday afternoon with the spectacle of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (S-VT) campaign manager promising CNN’s...

  • Liberal Democrat Bill Press: A raw deal for Hastert

    The Hill ^ | 06/02/2015 | Bill Press
    As a Democrat, I know I’m supposed to cheer now that former Republican Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) has been charged with federal crimes. But, in fact, I feel just the opposite. It looks to me like he got a raw deal, and ended up the victim of an overzealous federal prosecutor. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t condone Hastert’s rumored sexual abuse of a former student, if that’s what happened. But if that student still felt harmed, so many years later, why didn’t he go to the police instead of going to Hastert and hitting him up for hush money?...

    Don't you love it when liberals ridicule conservatives as idiots while said liberals do something idiotic? Yeah, it's one of my favorite hobbies too, one that guarantees an endless stream of amusing fodder. Latest example comes by way of Bill Press's radio show yesterday. Press, a former California Democratic Party chief and co-host of an earlier iteration of the cable show "Crossfire," was listening to his producer, Peter Ogburn, run through a daily news brief when this exchange could be heard (audio) -- OGBURN: Frank McCourt, the author Frank McCourt, you're familiar, right? PRESS: Why is your face red? OGBURN:...

    Mediaite ^ | October 14, 2013 | Andrew Kirell
    On his radio show Monday morning, Bill Press took on this weekend’s Million Vet March by denouncing the participants as “idiots” who’ve been used by “right-wing organizations” to protest against their own best interests. Ultimately, he said, they shouldn’t be following people like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), they should be expressing public odium towards him. “Absolutely drives me crazy,” Press said of Sunday’s protest activities. “Here’s what wrong with it,” he continued, “Those three idiots leading the protests, but they’re not the dumbest ones. The dumbest ones there are the idiots that are protesting. These are people, they call them...

    Radio Lefty Bill Press Calls Paying Soldiers’ Families Death Benefits ‘Big Mistake’ Just hours before the Senate voted to approve a measure that was passed by the House on Wednesday in a 425-0 vote to restore the death benefits paid to the families of fallen soldiers, liberal radio talk show host Bill Press showed his true colors when he said it would be a “big mistake” for the government to do that because “once the government starts making special exceptions, it allows the shutdown to continue.”

    Hotair ^ | 05/16/2013 | Ed Morrissey
    Given that Eric Holder has served the longest on Barack Obama's Cabinet, it's not exactly unusual that rumors would arise in a second term that the Attorney General might head out to pasture sometime soon. In fact, even Eric Holder wondered about it last November, when he questioned whether he still had “gas in the tank” for a second term. Later, he announced that he’d stick around for a year to get Obama through the transition to another term, but probably hit the road after that.Is the year up? After listening to Holder’s litany of “I don’t knows” in yesterday’s...

    Radio host Bill Press is determined to win the title of most useful idiot to the jihad. With his most recent lunacy this past Friday, Press is well on his way. (Audio clip after page break) Behold, what passes for wisdom from the warped wasteland known as liberal radio (audio) -- Now here's the question though and the question that I ask you and it's not an easy one, I understand that.  What, if anything, should happen to the people who made this video? I gotta tell you, I think they are as guilty, that's my opinion, I think they...

  • Is the Star Spangled Banner An "Abomination"?

    06/12/2012 3:45:13 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 48 replies ^ | June 12, 2012 | Ken Blackwell
    Talk show host, Bill Press, doesn’t like the Star-Spangled Banner. Imagine: a liberal talk show that’s not on NPR! His radio show is simulcast on Current TV. Bill Press likes provoking conservatives, but I’m not sure we should be provoked by his outburst against the National Anthem. Bill Press seems to be testing the old philosopher’s question: If a tree falls in the forest and there’s no one there to hear it, does it make a noise? If you say something on Current TV, does anyone hear it? Press adds: “It is a major crusade of mine to get...

    If it wasn’t odd enough for MSNBC weekend talker Chris Hayes to feel great discomfort at the idea of calling our war veterans “heroes” because it was too warlike, on Tuesday’s Full Court Press on Current TV, lefty Bill Press said he finds “The Star-Spangled Banner” is just embarrassing because of the “military jargon” in it and the idea that somehow we live in the “land of the brave,” as if nobody else is grave. Not only is it apparently “absolutely, monumentally unsingable,” Press proclaimed, “But it’s an abomination. First it ranges two octaves most people can only do...

I mean when you think about it, it’s bombs bursting in air rocket’s red glare it all kinds of, you know a lot of national anthems are that way, all kinds of military jargon and the land there’s only one phrase ‘the land of the free’ which is kind of nice and ‘the home of the brave?’ I don’t know.

    Sure way to stay schnockered between now and presidential Election Day: sling a shot every time a liberal plays the race card. Latest example: on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, Bill Press ascribed Republican reluctance to give President Obama credit on Iraq to the fact that "the Republican party is like some of the banks down South. They refuse to give a black man credit." View the video here.

On Monday's show, Randi Rhodes was giddy about the prospect of global warming causing the oceans to rise enough to engulf Rush Limbaugh's Florida home: And so, the global warming deniers -- like Rush Limbaugh, whose house I can't wait until the ocean swells and eats his house -- and he will be the first to go because he's got the best location!

    On his radio show yesterday, Glenn Beck criticized progressive radio host Bill Press over remarks Press made on Countdown that were critical of Beck’s analysis of President Obama’s religion. Press said of Beck “We don’t need a Mormon to teach Christians what the gospels are all about.” Beck then reiterated his criticism of the president’s faith, and said he would welcome a correction “if I’m wrong.” Press, who Beck also said had apparently “(n)ever gotten anywhere near the Gospels,” studied 10 years for the priesthood, and has a degree in theology. He tells Mediaite that he’s happy to correct Beck...

But amidst all the Dem panic and gnashing of teeth, the Pelosi party can still count on one true believer: Bill Press. Former California Dem chairman Press has predicted that when results come in on Election Night, GOP leader John Boehner's office will be a "morgue," while Pelosi's place while Pelosi's place is "where the party's going to be."
