  • CBS intentionally violated posted gun show rules in phony undercover stunt

    “‘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...

    “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,...

    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

    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.

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.

    "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...

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.

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.

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...

That's because Diarmuid Martin is the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. Bob Simon reports.

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...

Santorum spoke to a crowd in Iowa yesterday about the fiscal sinkhole of Medicaid, and argued that government shouldn’t redistribute wealth to improve the lives of some at the expense of others. Santorum stumbled momentarily on the word “lives,” though, and that provided this Rorschach moment for CBS, who reported it thusly on their YouTube channel: While campaigning in Sioux City, Iowa Sunday, GOP presidential hopeful...

    I haven't started watching the debate yet, but I can't believe it's just an hour. What the heck can they do in and hour? CBS should have rerun a couple of Two And A Half Men and ran a two hour debate some other time when they could spare the time.

    The leaders of a powerful Mexican cartel, frustrated that U.S. law enforcement was interfering with their lucrative drug business, plotted a military-style attack on a U.S. or Mexican government building to "send the gringos a message," federal prosecutors allege in documents filed this week. Leaders of the Sinaloa cartel sought dozens of American-made weapons for an attack in Mexico City on possible targets that included government buildings, an embassy or consulate or media outlet, according to documents in the case against Vicente Zambada, an alleged top lieutenant in the cartel.

    If the 2012 election will be won or lost on the economy, then the latest CBS poll shows that Barack Obama will lose it — badly. His approval rating on this measure has dropped to the lowest point of his presidency in the CBS series, with only 34% approving and a stunning 60% disapproving. That’s also after more weighting shenanigans by CBS in the sample, too: President Obama’s ratings on the the most important issue for his re-election — the economy — have posted the weakest showing of his presidency, according to a poll released Friday by CBS News.About 60...

    On his radio program Tuesday, Mark Levin aired a clip of veteran journalist and CBS anchor Bill Kurtis on WLS saying that Herman Cain’s accuser, Sharon Bialek, is a former CBS employee with a “track record.” Given her checkered past, a chuckling Kurtis posited that Bialek‘s and Cain’s roles in the alleged car-incident could even have been reversed. Some of Kurtis’ observations on Bialek were as follows: “She has a history.” “There is a lot more to this story.” “I can assure you that there will be far more to this story.” “Let’s put Herman or Sharon in the car...

    one man's opinion
    Wow..The culture of Political Correctness hasn't totally overtaken Hollywood. CBS's "Blue Bloods", is a hit series, now in its second season, and a favorite of mine. It stars Tom Selleck as the NYC Commissioner, surrounded by several family members who are also cops. It's tough, gritty, and filmed in NYC. A pretty accurate portrayal. Last night's episode was very kewl...

  • CBS Broadcasts 'Sexual Assault' Claims Against Herman Cain

    On Wednesday's Early Show, CBS's Betty Nguyen incorrectly reported that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain had been accused of "sexual assault" by two women. Nguyen later accurately reported that the women actually leveled sexual harassment allegations against Cain. The fill-in news anchor used the erroneous term during a 14-second news brief 37 minutes into the 7 am Eastern hour: "One of two women who accuse Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual assault wants to speak out. The woman's lawyer say she wants to be released from a confidentiality agreement, so that she can publically respond to Cain's recent claims...

    by Sheri UrbanReal FeministWhat is Bob Scheiffer’s Solution to “Epidemic of out of wedlock black babies”? Planned Parenthood! Herman Cain hits it out of the park on Big Abortion's history and founder. Bob Scheiffer plays gotcha with Cain and gets schooled... He asks Cain if he has “proof” that abortion clinics were placed in black neighborhoods to “curb the negro population”. Did this “seasoned journalist” really ask that? Mr. Schieffer, Google is your friend. The racist roots of Planned Parenthood have been out there for years, but only now is it coming to light for most Americans, as the media...
