  • The Splintering of the Conservative Media

    American Thinker ^ | March 18, 2016 | Steve McCann
    Over the past 28 years there has been a sea change in the media. Not only has the monopoly of the so-called mainstream media been shattered but the phenomenal rise of conservative media has been truly stunning. It began in 1988 with the national syndication of Rush Limbaugh and his distinctive brand of conservative political commentary espoused in an entertaining and captivating way, which opened the flood gates for other conservatives, together with Rush, to dominate the talk radio airwaves. In the 1990’s the internet, through hundreds of websites, gave voice to journalists to report stories either ignored or downplayed...

    ...At this very critical juncture in our history, while our nation and our liberties have been ravaged by the Obama years, and life as we know it in this nation hangs precariously by a thread, Fox News, Limbaugh, Levin, and Hannity have gambled with our future, knowing we have no collateral to back up the game. For months, these fair weather friends of conservatism have heaped slovenly, starry-eyed adoration on Donald Trump. Trump - that gilded toad, who's conservative history began at about the time he decided to run as a Republican has been shoved in our faces from the...

    The support of conservative talk radio has been a boost for the Texas senator in his tussle with Trump. NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.- Donald Trump rarely misses when he swings hard at a rival. But when it comes to his questioning of Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president, Cruz has a formidable defense that draws on the backing of not only legal scholars but conservative media. Confidence in the strength of his position came across clearly Thursday night as Cruz and Trump squared off on the issue for the first time in person at the Fox Business debate, with Cruz...

    The advent of the Rush Limbaugh show brought a ray of light into a dark world In a recent article in the National Review Rush Limbaugh, the God Father of conservative media recently catalogued how he not only birthed but also nurtured the growth of an alternative voice alongside what he aptly calls the “state-controlled media.” I can remember the first time I heard him in 1986. I was so excited to hear someone say what I was thinking. For years I had felt like I was all alone. Outside my wife, a few friends and relatives, I didn’t think...

    Megyn Kelly is having a very good month. And we’re not talking from a ratings perspective, either. Comparing Kelly to her competition at 9:00 PM is now a pointless exercise. The May numbers show her beating CNN’s taped programming (Bourdain, Rowe, etc.) and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow many nights by a 3-to-1 ratio or more. It’s actually been that way for some time and Kelly’s dominance appears to only be getting stronger. All of that said, what this column will focus on is all the headlines/buzz the program is generating long after the 44-year-old Albany Law grad signs off at 10:00...

This week we were pleased to hear that the show has been given a weeknight primetime slot of 7:00 p.m. ET. The show is a one-hour panel setting, featuring Concha–who has appeared many times as a pundit on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and Fox Business– as the main host alongside a left-leaning co-host, Rick Ungar, a Democratic consultant and Sirius XM radio host. The pair are joined nightly by two other panelists, typically including attorney Heather...

    Ask Siri: “What is CPAC 2013? There is an app in the iTunes store called CPAC 2013. You must know something about this event!” Siri is a smart woman. She responds: “CPAC 2013 is the largest annual gathering of conservative activists in the country and is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Washington, D.C., March 14-16, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. CPAC’s organizers expect to meet or exceed last year’s attendance record—meaning over 10,000 activists. This is a big feat considering that this is a year after an election where conservatives suffered some major losses. This indicates that...

    It is really getting old to hear liberal politicians and pundits complaining about conservative media as being destructive, as if the country would be better off returning to the halcyon days of the monolithic liberal media. That seems to be the view of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who complained about "the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News." During a discussion on HuffPost Live, Kennedy said, "Ninety-five percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing ... so a whole section of our country that's what they're hearing." "Twenty-two percent of Americans," continued Kennedy, "say their...

    David Frum blames the media for Mitt Romney's loss. Not the liberal media, of course--we are talking David Frum, after all. No, Frum blames the conservative media, or as he calls it, "the conservative entertainment complex." Frum touted his upside-down take on the media during a Morning Joe appearance today while promoting his instant e-book, "Why Romney Lost." Joe Scarborough liked the line so much he asked Frum to repeat it. Frum refused to name names, saying he does so in his book, but there's little doubt whom he was targeting. View the video here.

    Tea Party Tribune ^ | 2012-06-09 13:53:45 | mrcurmudgeon
    Until last Tuesday, the president's media personality cult felt certain that Obama's re-election was in the bag. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's triumph over media and union forces received scant notice compared to manufactured exit polls claiming that Wisconsinites favored Obama over the GOP's Mitt Romney by 51-44 percent. However, it is clear that Walker's victory foreshadows major problems for the president, his party and big labor.It turns out that 38 percent of Wisconsin's private-sector union households voted in support of Walker. This caused some in the media to let go of their post-recall denial and face an uncomfortable truth, "Barack...

Besides Mark Levin, what prominent talker has gone out on a limb and endorsed true conservative candidates? Everyday we have to here Hannity interview the John McCains of the world. If he truly believed in the conservative movement, wouldn't he be out there trumpeting Richard Mourdock and Don Stenberg like Levin is? As for Rush, he is more interested in commercializing the tea party movement with his "Two if by tea"...

    We awoke today with news that Mitt Romney’s nomination has now risen to nearly 57% of the GOP nationally, and that in the most fervent conservative state in the country, South Carolina, Tea Party “membership” has dropped from 28% to 11%. For weeks the supposed conservative media pushed either a disingenuous, social conservative statist hypocrite, or a liberal socialist in conservative clothing ignoring the only man that expanded conservatism nationally and balanced the budget 4 consecutive years with a liberal Democrat President and an overwhelming RINO Republican majority. I have something to say about that. Am I damn sure ain’t...

Or Ann Coulter. If they do, Gingrich comes off looking like a dangerous, anti-Reagan, Clintonian fraud. It’s as if the conservative media over the past 24 hours decided Gingrich is for real, and they need to come clean about the man they really know before it’s too late.

The prospect of the leading conservative voice in America participating in the purchase of a football team sent the liberal elites into cardiac arrest and into a frenzied campaign...

    NEW YORK — The Wall Street Journal has surpassed USA Today as the top-selling daily newspaper in the United States. The Audit Bureau of Circulations won't be releasing its latest figures until Oct. 26, but the Journal said Wednesday that it gained about 12,000 subscribers in the April-September period, compared with a year earlier. That puts its average Monday-Friday circulation at 2.02 million. The Journal claimed the top spot last week after USA Today released its circulation figures early, but had not given out specifics until Wednesday. USA Today, which has long been No. 1, said last week that it...

    It's easy, and accurate, to take a potshot at the Associated Press for liberal bias when it inks a deal to distribute the investigative reporting of four left-leaning nonprofits but no conservative works, and that's exactly what Paul Chesser did at AmSpecBlog over the weekend. But the fault for a lack of conservative presence in AP's six-month distribution experiment isn't AP's alone. The wire service would be hard-pressed to distribute conservative investigative journalism because precious little of it exists right now or is being produced on a consistent basis. There are bright spots. Mark Tapscott is building an all-star team...

    Conservative magazines are not so loyal to the GOP these days. From the New York Times Verbal brawling among conservatives over the future of the movement and the Republican Party has shifted into hyperdrive recently. From ideological conservatives like Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh to big-tent moderates like Colin L. Powell and Christine Todd Whitman, Republicans have been on talk shows and at debates to plead their cases and pan erstwhile allies. Yet there is one arena that seems decidedly uninterested in serving as a forum for competing visions: conservative magazines. At The Weekly Standard, the point is “to air...

    After viewing an article on that asks the question about the current existance of the “liberal media bias”…. I thought I would share a few thoughts on this. Not long ago (10 or 15 years ago) the big buzz on talk radio was how unfair and completely bias the media was - to the left. In fact it’s only in recent years that this proclamation has died down. But I would say the notion of only 1 side being represented on a given subject - has changed dramatically… and is worth noting. The way news is being covered these...

    One of the most frustrating aspects of this election season has been the willingness of our allies in the conservative media to outsmart themselves by supporting liberal Republicans. Some of them latched on to one of these "moderates" from day one. The most egregious example of this tendency is Sean Hannity, who must feel a bit foolish for his slavish promotion of Giuliani, given Rudy's inglorious performance at the polls. Hugh Hewitt also gets raspberries for becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Romney, Inc. One wonders if the FEC will be investigating Hewitt for all the free advertising he has...

    The Left’s near monopoly over the institutions of opinion and information—which long allowed liberal opinion makers to sweep aside ideas and beliefs they disagreed with, as if they were beneath argument—is skidding to a startlingly swift halt. The transformation has gone far beyond the rise of conservative talk radio, that, ever since Rush Limbaugh’s debut 15 years ago, has chipped away at the power of the New York Times, the networks, and the rest of the elite media to set the terms of the nation’s political and cultural debate. Almost overnight, three huge changes in communications have injected conservative ideas...

    WASHINGTON—Liberals in Congress have recently launched a major assault on conservative media by proposing sweeping regulations of mass media - regulations designed to muzzle popular conservative talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. The liberal onslaught includes an attempt to embarrass President Bush by rolling back a recent decision by Bush's Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to de-regulate ownership of radio and TV stations. The June 2 FCC decision takes a major step towards deregulating mass media and allowing the free market - and not government bureaucrats - to determine what voices should be heard. The Left's...

    Fox News Corporation, Clear Channel Communications are worst offenders For the past few decades, the word media was rarely heard without the adjective "liberal." Still to this day, anytime there is any news that is contrary to the conservative viewpoint it is passed off as liberal bias. At one time this assertion was probably accurate, but, with a run through the channels, anyone can see that the supposed liberal media is now overpowered by the sensationalism and frenzy of the conservative media. The fantasy of a liberal media is dead, and fairness, civility and trust have gone down along with...

    While liberals whine about conservative media So-called liberals lost an election. Now they’re whining about conservative successes in the media. On New Year's Day The New York Times ran a frontpage story that described liberal plans to recruit talk show hosts to compete with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Reagan, to buy a cable network and to fund a liberal think tank comparable to the Heritage Foundation. Liberals still don't get it. There’s no big liberal audience for liberal talk show hosts because they control taxpayer funded NPR and all the metropolitan newspapers; or for liberal cable, because they...
