  • 2012 Is Coming, the MSM Is Corrupt, and Big Journalism Needs Your Help

    Big Journalism ^ | 10/18/2011 | ohn Nolte
    Yesterday afternoon a reader name LibertyGeek asked a great question about media bias: I ask what are we going to do about it? There’s no doubt that the MSM is in the tank for the Dems. That knowledge and a six pack will get me a buzz. You’re connected and have a platform. Put the question out to all the folks who read your posts, “How do we combat this extreme bias?” The alternate media does a great job but there are a TON of really intelligent people who are too busy earning a living to research things. How do...
  • Will tea party purists back imperfect Romney? (MSM says Tea Partiers can't win without Romney)

    After watching the GOP presidential debate the other night, it was hard to avoid this conclusion: Mitt Romney looks more and more like the GOP presidential nominee. He's the best debater. He's got his issues and his rejoinders down pat. He brushes away his opponents like lint on his lapel. And all with such ease. That said, there's a teensy problem he just can't seem to beat: Conservatives don't like him. Or trust him. Or really want him to be the GOP nominee. Sure, you say, Republicans never like their nominees, and they still manage to vote for them. There...

    Big Government ^ | October 3rd | Andrew Breitbart
    New photographs obtained exclusively by reveal that Barack Obama appeared and marched with members of the New Black Panther Party as he campaigned for president in Selma, Alabama in March 2007. The photographs, captured from a Flickr photo-sharing account before it was scrubbed, are the latest evidence of the mainstream media’s failure to examine Obama’s extremist ties and radical roots.

    According to the survey, which was released Monday, 28 percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say they support Perry as their party's presidential nominee, with Romney at 21 percent. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is at ten percent, with Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who's making his third bid for the White House, former Godfather's Pizza CEO and radio talk show host Herman Cain, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, all at seven percent. The poll indicates that Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota is at four percent, with former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania at three...

    The St. Petersburg Times / Politico ^ | 2011-09-15 | Adam C. Smith
    Florida’s most experienced political professionals are closely divided on whether Rick Perry or Mitt Romney will win Florida’s Republican presidential primary, but overwhelmingly they see Romney as the stronger candidate to beat Barack Obama in Florida. More than 100 of Florida’s sharpest political minds participated in the latest St. Petersburg Times Florida Insider Poll - including campaign consultants, lobbyists, activists - and the results were striking: Two thirds of Democrats and two thirds of Republicans pegged Romney as the stronger general election candidate, though Republicans were considerably more confident than Democrats that Perry would win Florida’s crucial presidential primary early...
  • PBS alters transcript to hide Obama gaffe

    Barack Obama has gone to Congress asking for more money to spend. The President, in a rambling and tedious exercise mixing blame with demands, made quite a few dubious statements in laying out the case for Congress to vote for the plan which as yet does not exist. Much like Obamacare, Congress must ultimately vote for the bill to know what is in it. At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party. Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded....

    Did NBC Universal see Fox News thriving with its conservative-leaning approach and decide to swing to the other end of the political spectrum? Nope -- it just sort of happened, said former NBCU chief Jeff Zucker. "There was not a secret meeting that said, hey let's go left with MSNBC," Zucker said in an appearance at the PromaxBDA event last week. He said Keith Olbermann emerged as a liberal voice with an anti-Gulf War stance and drew an audience. MSNBC placed a companion show behind it, and things sort of moved in that liberal direction, with profits, not politics, the...

    In an interview with CNN, First Lady Michelle Obama thanks the media for their "support" and "kindness." CNN reporter: "How's the family ready for this [the election]? It's going to be quite vicious, isn't it? How do you prepare for that?" First Lady Michelle Obama: "You know, it's … we're ready, you know. Our children, you know, could care less about what we're doing. We work hard to do that. Fortunately, we have help from the media. I have to say this: I'm very grateful for the support and kindness that we've gotten. People have respected their privacy and in...

    Early Thursday afternoon, Derek Willis posted on the paper’s "Caucus" blog a request surely enticing to the paper’s online liberal readership: "Help Us Investigate the Sarah Palin E-Mail Records." Ken Shepherd at NewsBusters says enlisting newspaper readers to pore through the email trove "indirectly amounts to free oppo research for the 2012 Obama campaign." On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska. Times reporters will be in Juneau, the state capital, to begin the process of reviewing the e-mails, which we will be posting...

    Former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele is in negotiations with MSNBC to be a political analyst, according to sources. Steele would be a prominent Republican voice on a network known for its liberal television hosts. If the deal goes through, he would join the cable network in time to offer commentary on the 2012 elections.

    I have observed that the polls and the news readers have taken to reminding us that Sarah Palin's nomination spells certain defeat for the GOP in 2012. Let's examine the question of Sarah Palin's prowess as a candidate, measured against the current field: It has been noted that former Senator Rick Santorum won his Senate seat in a big GOP year (1994) and lost it big in a Democrat year (2006), sweeping in with one tide and out with another. This is evidence of weakness as a candidate. Let's examine the rest of this field, using 2006 as the barometer....

At high noon Saturday, the progressive activists plan rallies to “save the American dream” — more than 60 nationwide in fact, with participants instructed to wear yellow foam cheeseheads and anything in red and white to honor University of Wisconsin colors. The group also has talking points right out of a Depression-era novel: “We demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share. We are all Wisconsin. We are all Americans.”

    Rush Limbaugh thinks Michelle Obama is a big, fat idiot. The broadcaster announced during his show Monday that the first lady "took the kids out to Vail on a ski vacation, and they were spotted eating, and they were feasting on ribs - ribs that were 1,575 calories per serving with 141 grams of fat." Actually, the restaurant put the calorie count at 600, but Rush was determined to chew out Obama. "The problem is - and dare I say this? - it doesn't look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice," he said. "I'm trying to say...

    PolitiFact touts itself as a "non-partisan" and objective truth-checker. But one has to wonder how they can even bother saying that when they are ridiculously partisan. Take their new article: The health care law a "job killer"? The evidence falls short. PolitiFact took a quote from Eric Cantor, in which he stated ObamaCare is a job killer, and rated it "false." Nancy Pelosi was so ecstatic over the news that she quickly tweeted in liberal bliss: ...The article quickly quotes a press release by the CBO. PolitiFact quickly mocks Republicans for leaving out "facts." Here now is the entire first...
