    This could confirm what many suspected all along - the corporate heads at General Electric (NYSE:GE) would try to use their media holdings to portray President Barack Obama and his administration in a positive light in order to gain a corporate advantage. That's how former CNBC reporter and current Fox Business Network senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino explains it in his forthcoming book, "Bought and Paid For: The Unholy Alliance Between Barack Obama and Wall Street." According to Gasparino, GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt had "helped his company feast off of the subsidies of Obamanomics," including the green energy initiatives and health...

    This part got me: MATTHEWS: Well, I have to tell you, I don`t know how you fan the flames when you — when you say you don`t like something. And by the way, Congressman Stupak, I`ve got to ask you a question. I know this is rhetorical. But you know, when Bush got his way on a number of issues — forget the war. The parties agreed on that for a while there. He got a huge tax cut for the wealthy. I didn`t see the Democrats burning down the barns and sending hate mail, and you know, throwing rocks...
  • NBC's Special Victims

    NBC's "Law & Order" programs are long established and all over the schedule. But the sex-obsessed vice cops of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" are a breed apart. They exist to be socially provocative, which is to say, to rattle, to disturb. Viewers at home probably weren't ready for the plot that aired on NBC on March 3. These scriptwriters are so revolting that they become almost comical. As you read what follows, you decided how closely this mirrors anything resembling the world of reality. Someone was strangling prostitutes to death and leaving prayer cards behind. The first suspect...
  • Matthews: GOP Kept Their 'Crazies in the Closet' But Still Sounded Like N. Korean Commies

    Chris Matthews, during a special post-health care summit two hour edition of Hardball on Thursday night, dissected the GOP strategy as one of keeping their "crazies" like Michele Bachman and Joe Wilson, "in the closet" and mocked that their "rehearsed" phrases made them sound like a "North Korean assembly" and exclaimed it was "an example of Pyongyang democracy, which is "What the Dear Leader told us to recite." The following Matthews outbursts were aired during the February 25 edition of Hardball: CHRIS MATTHEWS: The Republican strategy was "Don't show your ugly faces tonight." Today they kept all the crazies, all...
  • Matthews' Southern Poverty Guest Associates Stack With 'Radical Right'

    Liberal TV show host? Eager to guarantee that the post-Stack finger will be pointed at conservatives? Choose as your sole guest on the subject someone from the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center. That's precisely what Chris Matthews did this evening, with utterly predictable results. Right on script, SPLC director Mark Potok twice associated Austin plane-bomber Andrew Stack with "the radical right." How fraudently did Matthews stack the deck? He described the SPLC as a group "which monitors extremists"as if the SPLC looks for wackos on the left as well as the right. View video here.

    I don't know when or where or even if Joe Scarborough's radio show airs in my area, nor do I care. The other night, a friend caught this clip from his radio show and sent it to me. It's about a blog that is published by the organization I head.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - It has no automatic tellers or drive-up windows, doesn't issue credit cards and tends only a few thousand checking and savings accounts. Its only location is a glass, steamboat-shaped headquarters near the Missouri River, where the business moved from its original 1919 home in a former auto assembly plant. The Bank of North Dakota the nation's only state-owned bank might seem to be a relic. It was the brainchild of a failed flax farmer and one-time Socialist Party organizer during World War I. But now officials in other states are wondering if it is helping...

    Here is video of the MSNBC Morning Joe Crew collectively making fun of and hating on Gov. Sarah Palin today. It is a sight to behold how truly mean and petty a group of "professionals" can be toward a person they do not like. From Joe Scarborough saying she just does not express herself like a top-tier Presidential Candidate, to Andrea Mitchell making fun of some notes she had written on her hand, to Chuck Todd calling her a quitter in a sarcastic tone of voice, it was total pile-on. For someone they believe is a lightweight and incapable of...

    Here is video of MSNBC's David Shuster and Bill Dedman trying to make hay of recent e-mails released that apparently show Sarah Palin's husband Todd Palin had a "powerful influence" on her administration. (Video)Shuster even went as far to ask "does this now expose the Palin's to any sort of ethics or even criminal liability because of his involvement?" Shuster called the e-mails a "treasure trove of information" and "not good news for Palin supporters, because it's the kind of baggage that will weigh down Sarah Palin and raise a lot of questions should she want to run in 2012."

    On the soon-to-be canceled Its the Economy program on MSNBC on Thursday, co-host Contessa Brewer grilled Republican New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg on his calls to reduce out-of-control government spending: Which programs are you willing to cut? Are you willing to tell schools, no money for you? Gregg shot back: What an absurd statement to make. And what a dishonest statement to make. Gregg called out Brewer for her unfair framing of the issue: ...nobodys saying no money for schools....On its face youre being fundamentally dishonest when you make that type of statement. He went to explain the kinds of...

    Margery Eagan, a liberal columnist for the Boston Herald, ripped MSNBCs Keith Olbermann on Sundays Reliable Sources on CNN over his homophobic, racist, reactionary label of Senator-elect Scott Brown on the night of the Massachusetts special election: This is crazy...its sick. Anchor Howard Kurtz played Olbermanns smear of Brown nine minutes into the 10 am Eastern hour, and after asking Holmes for her take, he played a sound bite of Glenn Becks recent dead intern crack against Brown. EAGAN: Listen, I think Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann have both taken leave of their senses. You know, I was a Martha...
  • MS-NBC: Intelligence Failure a 'Conspiracy' against Obama? (Sit down before reading)

    American Thinker ^ | 8 January 2010 | William Tate
    ...MS-NBC spent much of its Monday prime-time promoting the spurious contention that intelligence agencies may have deliberately allowed the attempted Christmas Day plane bombing to proceed in order to make Obama look bad. This contemptible idea was floated during the "Countdown" comedy hour when The Sportscaster reported "Breaking News" that White House sources believe the intelligence community's failure to stop the plot "might have been intentional and not accidental." Further, "the information was in some way deliberately withheld from some higher or broader authority to make someone look bad," leaving little doubt that the victim of this new, vast right-wing...

    Chris Matthews on Tuesday called "Rules for Radicals" author Saul Alinsky one of his heroes. This admission came only five days after the "Hardball" host proudly admitted on the air that he was a liberal. "I always try to remind myself of Saul Alinsky when I get confused," Matthews told "Hardball" guest Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont). Such was revealed as the pair discussed the fate of health care reform. CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Well, to reach back to one of our heroes from the past, from the `60s, Saul Alinsky once said that even though both sides have flaws in their arguments...

    Gaffney: "You have got a sanctimony factor here that is extraordinary." I managed to watch two MSNBC programs last night attempting to defend Barack Obama from Dick Cheney's incisive criticism over "dithering" in Afghanistan before my blood pressure hit 300. On the Right, they featured former Congressman Tom Tancredo and foreign policy expert Frank Gaffney, respectfully. Their opponents on the Left were: The Ed Show: Joan Walsh of Salon.Hardball with Chris Matthews: Ron Reagan.Really? Ron Reagan&'s expertise is in ballet, ungrateful nepotism, and smug sanctimony. Gaffney, the clearest mind in foreign policy for 30 years, was ever-unflappable and took...

    Americans for Limited Government is appalled that an employee of the NBC news network apparently felt it was appropriate to send an email to an ALG employee, in response to a standard news release, saying, "Bite me, Jew Boy." According to ALG records, the email came from the Blackberry and email address of Jane Stone, a producer for NBC's Dateline. The email was sent to Alex Rosenwald, the ALG Director of Media Outreach. The news release to which Ms Stone apparently responded was one in which ALG called upon Congress to defund ACORN. Americans for Limited Government does not contend...

    I missed this yesterday at Newsbusters but Treacher, rightly aghast, tipped me to it this afternoon. Never will you see a starker example of MSNBC getting away with the sort of deception for which Fox News would be pilloried, especially in the context of race. If you missed Mondays post about this, go watch the footage (or look at this photo) and see if you can deduce why they wouldnt want to show the guy with the rifle from the neck up during this particular segment. For all the well-deserved heat that MSNBCs primetime line-up has taken for its demagoguery...

    People we live in a different America you need to read the stitches on a fastball at all times. There are several reasons why the Senate has come out saying they have no where near the amount of votes to pass the cap and trade bill.They never would have passed it through the House if they didn't intend to jam it through the Senate. One of the reasons why they and media are saying there are not enough votes is to temper the outrage of the millions that made calls last week to their congressman and women. But more importantly...
