  • NYT Celebrates Vulgar Left-Wing Turn of 'Newly Relevant' Rival NY Daily News

    NBC News ^ | January 31, 2016 | Clay Waters
    The Times’ online headline, “Drop Dead? Not The Newly Relevant Daily News,” refers of course to it's rival's infamous 1975 headline: “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” The Daily News also rehashed its own headline recently to attack Ted Cruz for his crack about “New York values.” You guessed it: “Drop Dead, Ted.” That passes for “relevance” among the left and the NYT. Mahler took us inside the liberal hive mind, buzzing with giddy self-congratulation over yet another puerile attack on Republicans, while the Times dutifully reprinted the controversial Daily News covers that made liberals go giddy. On a recent afternoon,...
  • Destroy Trump: With Obama’s Terrorist Pal Off The Table, Media Hurls Guilt-By-Association

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | December 11, 2015 | John Nolte
    Once again proving that the institution known as the DC Media is filled with nothing other than left-wing liars and propagandists, now that Barack Obama’s racist mentor/preacher and terrorist pal are off the table, to destroy Donald Trump, guilt-by-association is again fair game. Barack Obama spent 20 years at the knee of Reverend “God Damn America” Wright, a racial fanatic our President called his mentor. Obama also worked with and launched his political career in the home of Bill Ayers, an unrepentant domestic terrorist. The President was so worried about this relationship, he lied about it. The DC Media was...

    On Friday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell actually fact-checked Hillary Clinton’s suspicious tale of trying to join the Marines in 1975: "Those comments are being mocked by Republicans today and they’re getting two Pinocchios from Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler....Why on earth would she go to a Marine recruiter in 1975?...It doesn't make sense." Her guest, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was so taken aback that the Florida congresswoman attacked Mitchell for asking questions: "With all due respect, Andrea, why on earth are we talking about this?" Mitchell hit back: "Because she brought it up in New Hampshire the...

    On Thursday night and Friday morning, NBC News tried their best to go after Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson by attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill of his relationship with a man who was convicted nearly a decade ago of insurance fraud while ignoring the ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton over her private e-mail server. Even though competitors ABC and CBS didn’t cover this story, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt hyped on Thursday that “Republican frontrunner Ben Carson is facing new questions about his friendship with a convicted felon.

Meanwhile, two weeks ago, a column at Time.com claimed that Hillary Clinton is "biologically primed to be a leader." Seriously. Since he either can't or won't tell us who asked the question, we're unable to determine if the "reporter" to whom Miller referred was asking the question because he or she doesn't know the Constitution or was trying to bait Rubio into giving an answer implicitly or explicitly criticizing other candidates. It would...

    If two people are equally unable to give consent, but have sex anyway, should either be charged with a crime? It's a question that many college administrators wrestle with when drugs and alcohol are factors in sexual assault disputes. The verdict often seems to be that male students are uniquely responsible for ascertaining that their sexual partners are in a state of mind to consent, even when the female is the initiator and both are intoxicated.

    Do You Remember Bill Clinton's Bimbo Eruption in 1992-1998? First of all, the mainstream media did not tell the full story of all the sex allegations against Clinton during his presidency. The cases that received MSM publicity were those of Monica Lewinsky, Jenifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Elizabeth Ward Gracen. These cases were a mere 5 percent of the allegations made. The other 95 percent did not receive MSM publicity. One tabloid at that time, claimed that Clinton produced illegitimate children, an allegation the MSM ignored. The New York Post of February 14, 2015 has even...

The irony is that Joe Scarborough devoted a segment on today's Morning Joe to rapping Rand Paul for "shushing" that reporter, whereas a bit later in the show, Scarborough himself shut down a guest with such similar language.

    Many conservatives finished the year angry about the same thing they were angry about at the beginning of the year: liberal double standards. As I write this, GOP House whip Steve Scalise is in hot water over reports that he spoke to a group of racist poltroons in Louisiana twelve years ago. Whether it was an honest mistake, as Scalise plausibly claims, or a sign of something more nefarious, as his detractors hope, remains to be seen. But one common response on social media is instructive. Countless conservatives want to know: Why the double standard? Barack Obama was friends with...

Tonight on On the Record, Charles Krauthammer said the fact that the courts opinion was written by a liberal shows contempt for the presidents actions. He obviously trampled on the constitutional powers, Krauthammer said. Justice Stephen Breyer said in his majority opinion that a congressional break must last at...

It told the Sisters that for the case to continue with no enforcement of the Affordable Care Act's contraception mandate, they need only to inform the government in writing "that they are non-profit organizations that hold themselves out as religious and have religious objections to providing coverage for contraceptive services." That's easy, because that's what they are, and that's their position. As a result, the government has been "enjoined from enforcing against the applicants the challenged provisions of the...

That's how Ernesto Londono opened his January 10 story "Republicans blame Obama administration for al-Qaeda resurgence in Iraq," a front-page-worthy story which Washington Post editors buried on page A10. By contrast, the Post ran not one but two Chris Christie bridge-scandal stories on the Friday edition's front page. The other stories rounding out the front page centered on efforts to hash out a long-term...

    It never ceases to amaze me how on one hand cultural products considered offensive to Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism are treated as hate crimes. If, God forbid, a book or a film offends Islam (and that is easy enough, because Muslims do get easily offended), on top of being labelled a hate crime it also puts author, director or producers lives at risk with a fatwa (in fact, a film about Islam would be even too dangerous to make). But on the other hand to offend Christianity is art, as in the case of Chris Ofili's painting of the Virgin...

In terms of the economy, Mexico has rarely done better, and the United State rarely worse. The Mexican unemployment rate is currently below 5 percent. North of the border it remains stuck at over 7 percent for the 53rd consecutive month of the Obama presidency. The American gross domestic product...

If you are African-American, you might react like former Washington, D.C., homicide detective Rod Wheeler.

If you are white, or Hispanic, you could possibly see the trial as something whipped up by...

But this man's name was Michael Hastings, and his death set off a week of media praise and adulation about his all-too-short life that is telling in more ways than anything the subject of it ever exposed. Hastings didn't cure cancer, he didn't invent anything that makes life better, he wrote words. Michael Hastings was a journalist.

Having in effect announced the repeal of the business cycle for the foreseeable future, despite the fact that the economy's post-recession job recovery performance has been the worst since World War II by miles, it seems that Rugaber is now doing his best to prop up his assertion with shaky claims about the meaning of government economic reports. That would include the second sentence of his opening paragraph of his dispatch on Thursday's report on jobless claims from the...

    The liberal media know an abortion outrage when they hear it. Sadly, they only seem to hear them from the mouths of Republican candidates, and it only takes a statement to outrage the press. Can't they find a single abortion outrage inside an abortion clinic? Such is their radicalism that nothing, absolutely nothing regarding this gruesome procedure raises their eyebrows, never mind their ire. One emerging story proves the degree to which our "objective" media's views on abortion are dogmatic and extreme. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia, and not just for killing babies outside the womb,...

    Last week, Rush Limbaugh made some divisive comments on his radio show about a young Sandra Fluke who was advocating for government paid birth control. After making these comments, there was outcry all over America calling Rush Limbaugh a misogynist. Soon after, President Barack Obama called Sandra Fluke to console her and to let her know that her parents should be proud. Rush Limbaugh has since apologized to Ms. Fluke but she rejected his apology. I believe it is disgusting and self-centered that anyone would ask the government to pay for their birth control. In no way does our government...

    Kirsten Powers may be the last honest liberal/progressive/democrat left in America: "Yes, its true. Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, Matt Taibbi, and Ed Schultz have been waging it for years with their misogynist outbursts. There have been boycotts by people on the left who are outraged that these guys still have jobs. Oh, wait. Sorry, that never happened." -- Kirsten Powers

    Today's liberals would have you believe they occupy the moral high ground on every political and cultural issue. But have you ever taken inventory of their double standards? The left's inconsistency in applying their principles based on the party affiliation of those they're judging, gives fuller meaning to the concept of moral relativism. The only thing that's consistent is their reliable inconsistency, whether in the area of economic, social or national defense issues. Let's consider just a few examples: -- When "bimbo eruptions" threatened to derail Bill Clinton's campaign, his hit squad, the commander in chief of which was Hillary...

    Herman Cain is under attack, so why arent the Hollyweirdos flocking to his aid? Why wont Alec Baldwin stop pimping Capital One credit cards long enough to help a brotha out? Back when Obama was questioned about his elementary-school transcripts, Hollyweird utopians were outraged. How DARE they question his grades? Dont they know hes, like, the smartest guy ever?

    When it comes to sex, the media apply different standards to Republicans and Democrats. Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton allegedly trolled for women, using state troopers as his procurers. As president, Clinton engaged in oral sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. He lied about it under oath and was impeached, though later acquitted by the U.S. Senate. Other sexual accusations tainted Clinton, including one that he raped one Juanita Broaddrick. That "everybody lies about sex" and "it was just sex" and didn't affect his public responsibilities, were just two of the exculpatory statements from Clinton's Democratic defenders. James Carville...

    Were five months removed from Comedy Central host Jon Stewarts Rally to Restore Sanity, but with an upcoming appearance for Special Report host Bret Baier on The Daily Show, Fox News Channels Charles Krauthammer had a suggestion for his colleague. On the FoxNews.com airing of Special Report Online from Wednesday night, Krauthammer wanted Baier to point out that Stewarts October 2010 rally in Washington, D.C. had unseated conservative rallies of that nature in terms a lack of racial diversity. You know whenever theres a gathering of Republicans or conservatives, the press always makes a point of saying how white the...

Every time I hear someone claim to be an ex-Catholic, a sense of sadness comes over me. In just about every case, people leave the Catholic Faith due to a lack of understanding. What unmitigated balderdash! What a cop-out! What a brazen distortion of reality! Far from "just about every case," probably a major chunk of such folks were heavily well trained in the hallowed halls of the Institution. Many were instructors--even Catechism instructors for...
