    “‘Bullet Button’ Used To Get Around California Gun Laws,” CBS 5 San Francisco reported Tuesday. “CBS 5 went undercover to a recent gun show at the Cow Palace in Daly City and found ‘California legal’ assault rifles throughout,” they claim. It’s a non-story, really, as their undercover team found nothing illegal—they weren’t even looking for that—or that couldn’t have been obtained openly. The entire purpose of the “investigation” appears to be to gin up public frenzy about a legal device that allows for changing magazines on semi-automatic firearms that comply with California’s specific model and cosmetic features bans. “I've emailed...
  • Osama Bin Laden thought CBS might be a good network to air his propaganda

    “We should also look for an American channel that can be close to being unbiased, such as CBS, or other channel that has political motives that make it interested in broadcasting the point of view of al Mujahadin,” Bin Laden wrote in one of the letters uncovered in the raid that killed him. But one of his top aides, American-born Adam Gadahn, raged against coverage of the terror group on U.S. television. Gadahn believed that several of the American networks, in particular CNN, were “in cooperation with the government” —and saved much of his scorn for Fox News. -snip However,...
  • Still at it: Dan Rather insists Bush’s National Guard service in question (with Video)

    It’s been nearly eight years since Dan Rather’s long career at CBS came to a close after he ran a story that could have derailed President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection. Instead, the story about Bush’s supposedly questionable National Guard service wound up giving the media a black eye after some of the documents used to in the report turned out to be fake. Nonetheless, Rather is still at it, making the case that he was in the right and that the only reason he was forced out at CBS was because of pressure from his corporate superiors. Rather made...

    Last Sunday, CBS’ 60 Minutes broadcast “Christians of the Holy Land,” by Bob Simon, largely blaming Israel for an exodus of Christians from the Holy Land. The showing coincides with a growing international campaign to portray Israel as anti-Christian, showcasing Palestinian Christians as evidence. “Palestinian Christians, once a powerful minority, are becoming the invisible people, squeezed between a growing Muslim majority and burgeoning Israeli settlements,” the segment opened. “Israel has occupied the West Bank for 45 years.” But the harsher indictment came from a Palestinian Lutheran pastor and critic of Israel. “If you see what's happening in the West Bank,...

    CBS's Bill Plante on Friday downplayed graphic photos of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan posing with severed body parts of suicide bombers as a GOP "distraction," insisting that Republicans were "somehow" trying to portray this (and other issues) as a failure of leadership. None of the networks wondered if this reflected poorly on Barack Obama. Since the Los Angeles Times first reported the 2010 pictures, ABC has only offered one report, airing on World News. CBS allowed a lone segment on the April 18 Evening News and a brief mention by Plante on Friday's This Morning. He spun, "...Republicans keep pointing
  • Does Anyone Really Believe The New 46/46 Poll Coming From CBS? Obama at 46%? Laughable?

    04/19/2012 3:32:50 PM PDT · by Reality_News · 30 replies
    Most respectable polling outfits show Romney ahead by three to five points. Yet CBS has it an even 46 points each. Hmm, wasn't it CBS who also polled in the final two weeks of the 2008 election showing Obama beating McCain with an Eleven Point Spread? It was something like; McCain 38% Obama 53%? (don't recall the actual numbers). Then again, us conservatives don't take any poll involving CBS/Compost/ABC/NBC seriously anyway. CBS will likely never present a poll showing Romney ahead of Doggman via 55% to 45% lead.

    UPDATED: Executive chairman Sumner Redstone made an unchanged $20.3 million last year, while his CEO overtook Viacom's Philippe Dauman to become the highest-paid Hollywood CEO so far this reporting season. CBS Corp. said late Friday that president and CEO Leslie Moonves received higher compensation worth $69.9 million last year, driven by option awards. The total pay package, details of which were disclosed in a regulatory filing, was up 21 percent from the $57.7 million the media mogul had made in 2010 and makes him the highest-paid Hollywood CEO so far this reporting season. In 2010, the highest-paid CEO in the...

    CBS Reports ^ | March 7, 1967 | Mike Wallace
    "The Homosexuals" is a 1967 episode of the documentary television series CBS Reports. The hour-long broadcast featured a discussion of a number of topics related to homosexuality and homosexuals. Mike Wallace anchored the episode, which aired on March 7, 1967. Although this was the first network documentary dealing with the topic of homosexuality, it was not the first televised in the United States. That was The Rejected, produced and aired in 1961 on KQED, a public television station out of San Francisco. Three years in the making, "The Homosexuals" went through two producers and multiple revisions. The episode included interviews...

    Trayvon Martin Case Highlights Why Americans Distrust Media Bethany Mandel | 04.05.2012 - 4:45 PM When Americans first heard the story of the death of Trayvon Martin, many in the public and in the media decided on a narrative for why George Zimmerman killed the unarmed black teenager in Florida on the night of February 26. It was decided that Zimmerman, a “white-Hispanic” (should we now start classifying President Obama as the first white-African American president?) pursued and shot an innocent unarmed black teen in cold blood, because of his own racial bias. Over time, details available to the public...

    In 1957, an aging Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and the international birth control movement, agreed to an interview with CBS News’ Mike Wallace. In stark contrast with the sympathetic reception Sanger could expect to receive today in a network television interview, Wallace hammered Sanger with difficult questions and caught her in contradictions, while Sanger squirmed, fidgeted, and denied statements she had made only a week earlier in pre-interview discussions with CBS staff.

CARNEY: No, no, Bill, I am acknowledging that—you’re sharing in the...

    An experienced TV weatherman has sued CBS broadcasting for sex and age discrimination claiming his job applications were ignored purely because he isn't a 20-somthing and female. Hunter, who has been a weatherman for Fox5 in San Diego, sued the broadcasting giant in Los Angeles last week. However CBS claims Kyle Hunter's complaint is frivolous and based on gross misstatements of fact and say they will vigorously defend themselves in court. Hunter argues that his gender and age kept him from getting on-air weather jobs at CBS stations KCBS and KCAL despite his meteorology degree and years of experience. According...

    Obama administration officials in the Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday they would pull all of Medicaid’s funding for Texas’ Women’s Health Program because the state decided to no longer pass those funds along to abortion providers, such as Planned Parenthood. Instead of holding the Obama officials accountable for putting the interests of a favored liberal group ahead of the poor women of Texas, right on cue the CBS Evening News turned it into another tale of woe with women as victims in the loss of “free” services provided by the sacrosanct Planned Parenthood.  “A fight over Planned...

    An Irishman named Diarmuid Martin says the Catholic Church in Ireland has reached a breaking point, a crisis that he says results from the sexual abuse of children by priests and the cover-up by the Church. Martin has provided tens of thousands of pages of evidence against specific priests, and his words and actions carry extraordinary weight. That's because Diarmuid Martin is the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. Bob Simon reports.

    Look out, Eric, Sharyl Attkisson's on the prowl again. Prosecutors recently sentenced a Texas man, Manuel Barba, for trafficking a weapon connected to the murder of Immigration and Customs (ICE) Agent Jaime Zapata. Nobody was more astonished to learn of the case than Zapata's parents, who didn't know that Barba had been arrested or linked to their son's murder. "The family was obviously surprised to learn that there was a case involving a weapon linked to the Zapata incident," attorney Trey Martinez told CBS News. Martinez represents Zapata's parents and the surviving ICE agent in the assault, Victor Avila. "They...

    Tim Graham's picture CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson has distinguished herself by reporting on the "Fast & Furious" gunwalking scandal in the Obama Justice Department. The conservative media watchdog group Accuracy in Media awarded her their Reid Irvine Award for investigative reporting at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday -- only Attkisson failed to appear. Instead, Michael Calderone at The Huffington Post wrote CBS Washington bureau chief Christopher Isham accepted the award in Atkisson's honor and said that the network "is very proud of Sharyl's groundbreaking reporting." Attkisson is the first reporter from a non-conservative media organization to receive...

    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...

    Last week seemed typical for CBS' sitcoms on Monday night, television's most popular — and raunchy — night of comedy. There was a strip club visit on "How I Met Your Mother," lap dance included. The stars of "2 Broke Girls" mistakenly believed an upstairs neighbor ran a brothel. "Two and a Half Men" included jokes about masturbation, oral sex, sex with moms, trading cigarettes for sex and two scenes with loud noises of passion from behind closed doors. A quick count found 53 sex jokes on the network's four comedies, which includes "Mike & Molly." There were also nine...
