    Harry Reid may have deserted Pres. Obama over the Ground Zero mosque, but PBO can count on at least one stalwart defender: Norah O'Donnell. On today's Morning Joe, the MSNBC "correspondent" declared that the prez is deserving of praise for his position. Then, dancing a quantum leap further, O'Donnell accused mosque opponents of acting "like the people who attacked America and killed 3,000 people." View video here.
  • Journolist, day 7: Setting up the post-debate spin (McCain vs. Obama in 2008)

    On the seventh day of Journolist, Daily Caller gave to me — the party line on post-debate sensibility. The latest from Jonathan Strong looks at the access by political operatives of Journolist and their sometimes-naked attempts to push the members into political advocacy. The strongest evidence comes from a posting by Jeff Hauser, who advocated to Journolist members to skew their opinions on an upcoming debate between Barack Obama and John McCain: The single biggest thing journolist can do is to lay the analytical framework within the media elite necessary for an actual Obama debate win to be viewed as...

    Newt Gingrich and Howard Dean both left pants on the ground regarding the Shirley Sherrod Racism incident in their interviews with Fox News Chris Wallace. We learned earlier this month that a leftwing group affiliated with the website “Journolist” have plans in place to defeat those who they consider enemies by hurling the Leftwing invective “Racist” at enemies whether they are Racist or not and whether there is evidence of the charge or not. Many of these “Journalists” write for major newspapers around the country so they regularly access and influence the public square of ideas. In fact they may...

    The Daily Caller ^ | July 20, 2010 | Jonathon Strong
    It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign. The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public –...

    On her Bravo TV show Tuesday night, left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin referred to Sen. Scott Brown's two daughters as "prostitutes," and a CNN reporter apparently thought it hysterical. [Audio available here.] Griffin, who was readying herself for a trip to Washington, DC to rally and drum up support for a repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," brought CNN reporters (husband and wife) Dana Bash and John King onto the show to "coach" her for handling Washington.

Otherwise, worries Bollinger, Americans might not get the news...

    If you limit your news sources to mainstream news outlets, such as ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, or leftwing newspapers like The New York Times, you’re missing something important – news. For instance, very few outlets chose to cover how a very solid case against Black Panther Party ruffians who were intimidating voters at a polling site during the 2008 election just got dropped by the Obama administration. A video of the same charming Black Panther was just released showing a tirade of hate speech against white people, which included telling a crowd that they would, “have to kill some crackers”...

This suggestion is contained in a paper titled “New Public Media: A Plan for Action,” in which the authors say: “Take a close look at the American journalism landscape in 2010, and the scene is grim. Ad revenue is down; job cuts are up; and new business models have yet to prove sustainable. In recent decades, media consolidation, poor business...

    The Democratic victory in the protracted health care debate has brought the expected rejoicing from the liberals in government, the universities, and in the prestige media. The current slant on the story follows the idea that America has now climbed aboard the progressive express, joining enlightened lands such as Britain, Cuba and North Korea in guaranteeing health care for all. The triumphalism extends now to the next few tiles in the liberal mosaic, namely amnesty for illegal aliens, a comprehensive energy bill, and a staggering tax increase to start paying for these goodies.

    You can’t spell “hate” without “T,” “E” and “A.” This has been the media meme on the Tea Party movement from the beginning. Since the day of Rick Santelli’s cable-TV rant in support of capitalism, the default assumption of the left has been that Americans who show up to protest the Obama administration are all just one pillow case and pair of scissors away from joining the Klan. If it were merely poor reporting, that would be bad enough. But the cry of racism is being used against these concerned citizens, not because it’s true, but because it’s an effective...

    Conventional wisdom on the right and left has been that President Obama and the Democrats will pay a heavy price in the November mid-term elections for passing the deeply unpopular health care reform bill. But Fox Business Network's Charlie Gasparino isn't so sure. Gasparino appeared on the network's "Imus in the Morning" on March 25. "They can all get even in November then," Imus said of conservatives and Republicans. But Gasparino pointed out the indispensable weapon liberals have their side: the "cheerleading" news media.

Led primarily by the New York Times, a variety of news organizations are attacking the National Tea Party Convention, scheduled to begin Feb. 4 in Nashville, Tenn., with Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker. The Times claims the event is a "profiteering" enterprise, suggesting that the convention violates the grass-roots nature of the "tea party" movement. "Fractiousness," territorial disputes and suspicions have cast a shadow over the effort, the paper says. Yet the event is sold out. There's a waiting list, even among those seeking entrance to Mrs. Palin's speech alone. Eight sponsors include Judicial...

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."

The Dec. 9 episode of Wolf's program featured a killer who targeted the children of illegal immigrants and in that episode, one of the characters, played by John Larroquette, blamed conservatives "like Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck"...

Part of the story is the group's own missteps. ACORN was founded to help low- and middle-income Americans, but its edgy tactics and a series of gaffes fed the notion...

    Most of the major news outlets, like The New York Times and The Washington Post, ignored the swelling heat surrounding former White House environmental adviser Van Jones and the videos surfacing of his controversial statements. CBS News became the first of the three broadcast networks on Friday to note the controversy, but ABC's "World News" and "NBC Nightly News" again failed to report the story. After Jones' midnight resignation over the weekend, all three networks aired the story on their Sunday evening newscasts. The Washington Post offered its first story on Saturday yet The New York Times' print edition didn't...

    The ABC television network is at it again. This time they're refusing to air an AD from the League of American Voters regarding Health care. The AD, which as put together by former Clinton advisor, Dick Morris has been running on local stations around the country, but when media buyers attempted to place the AD on ABC, the network refused the buy and the much needed revenue. The AD features a Neurosurgeon, Dr. Mark J. Cuffe, who runs down a litany of reasons why the current bills sitting in the House and Senate are not good for health care in...

    In an August 17 piece on former DNC Chair Howard Dean's appearance on a morning news show, the Associated Press did its best to downplay the high passions and anger showed by thousands of average citizens at townhall meetings across the country. Dean was heard insisting that Obama not back down from including the "public option" in any healthcare bill, saying that such a feature is "indispensable" to its success at reforming our healthcare system. After the opening paragraphs, the AP characterized the possible removal of the public option by emphasizing Republicans and downplaying the outrage seen by citizens themselves....

    Its obvious, the Leftist/MSM is trying to bait these "Hate Groups" in hope of growing another McVeigh, Waco or Ruby Ridge so they can have something to point to to further demonize "Conservatives" by blaming us, you know the God, Guns and Religion types. Make no mistake about it, this is why we are seeing these stories, the left wants something to happen!

    <p>You are going to learn one thing by the end of August: the media are engaged in a mostly successful conspiracy to deny you a say in the American political process.</p> <p>You have been shut out. And if they are willing to fabricate news stories which say you either don’t exist or are a paid advocate of insurance companies, then they, and the administration, are clearly willing to also literally steal your vote at the ballot box.</p>

    The media have repeatedly stated how "angry," "hostile" and "ugly" town hall meetings across America are becoming. They are of course largely ascribing the nastiness to conservatives voicing their opposition to (among other things) President Barack Obama and Congress' proposed government takeover of the health care system. The press has been particularly offended by the "extreme" use of references to Adolf Hitler specifically and Nazis generally. One image they have repeatedly used as an example of this alleged right-wing extremism is a poster of President Obama - on whose face a Hitler mustache has been Photo Shopped - bearing the...

    Here is another racist charge being thrown at those protesting the socialism, this time being compared to the KKK: [VIDEO AT SITE] And Charles Krauthammer says everyone should all just stand up quietly and ask questions: [VIDEO AT SITE] The Democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the Republicans (or conservatives) are handing the Democrats the rabbit. The Democrats have no argument. They have no facts. They don't even really have a bill. And if people were just to stand up and quietly and civilly raise questions — "the money doesn't add up," "the CBO has said...

    Here is video of Bill O'Reilly tonight talking with Bernie Goldberg about the mainstream media's attacks on anti-ObamaCare protesters who have been showing up at Health Care Town Hall Meetings. They discussed the fact that the media has presented them as being some kind of organized mob, but in the past they have not done the same regarding liberal protesters when they were going after President George W. Bush. Goldberg pointed out the outrage that would have existed if Bush had ever asked people to email him the names of liberals who were against his proposals. How true that is!...
