    Surrounded by whooping Republicans and suddenly unfavorable data, chief Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod called in the media cavalry today.And several reporters on the 11:15 a.m. phone conference promptly offered questions that bordered on advice.“Axe, I’m not sure you can hear me, David,” said NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, when she was invited to ask a question Oct. 4.We are going to hold Gov. Romney accountable for the things he said last night … as I hope you will make him justify those claims, because we need a honest and a genuine and realistic plan to move forward as a country …...
  • Ed Schultz on 'Today': Obama Thrown Off by 'So Many Lies' From 'Corporate Shark' Romney

    Appearing on Friday's NBC Today, left-wing MSNBC host Ed Schultz desperately tried to explain away President Obama's bad debate performance: "I think that there were so many lies coming across that stage, and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the President to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Co-host Savannah Guthrie called him out on the liberal talking point: "That sounds a little bit like you're making excuses for the President." Schultz doubled down on his lame attempt to defend the President: "[Romney]...

"It goes without saying that there is definitely media bias," Ryan said on Fox News.

    It goes without saying that the mainstream media is an enemy of the American people.

Obama continues to lie about our ambassador’s murder in Libya.

    I have been absolutely baffled at the recent poll numbers putting an unpopular president ahead of Mitt Romney. The economy is terrible, no majority supports virtually any of the policies passed by this Administration, and there is no sign of improvement - yet Barack Obama still leads in most polls. So what gives? There could be many explanations. Mitt Romney could be to blame. He has been criticized of running a sub-par campaign even though his fundraising (the true test of organizational strength) has at times eclipsed the incumbent president. Polls are rarely seen by pundits and casual observers alike...

So, the corrupt vintage media in Barack Obama’s Ministry of Truth (Minitrue for short) pushes a narrative that there’s more widespread support for him in 2012 than there was in 2008; this is, of course, required if the polls that Minitrue expects you to believe without question could possibly be accurate since in the polls that show Obama leading he’s snagging a bigger share of the vote in swing states than he did in 2008.

    Anger is beginning to erupt nationwide over what many perceive to be media bias against Mitt Romney and other Republican or conservative-oriented candidates. The Media Research Center has consistently provided examples of bias against the Republican challenger to President Obama. The bias extends beyond actual news reporting and includes the well-known proclivity of Hollywood to back leftist candidates, exemplified by the recent disclosures that funds would be provided to “push” a pro-Obama message on purely entertainment television shows. The incentive may well be a redundancy. Indeed, some broadcasts, David Letterman being a prime example, already sound like humorous infomercials on...

    NBC News reporter Chuck Todd mocked this FReeper on Twitter tonight for my pointing out that the media would rather lose money than cater to conservative consumers of news. The conversation started over a comment by Slater reporter Dave Weigel on media bias in polls:Do people actually think news networks would pay for unreliable polls with bad samples b/c they love Obama so much? Don't answer that.I replied: News media has deliberately alienated conservatives, willfully losing money to further liberalism. Skewed polls just a part.Weigel retweeted my comment with a slight modification to his 75,849 followers: MT @KristinnFR: Media has...

    Only our totally unbiased watchdog media could turn the burning of U.S. embassies in countries where Barack Obama had recently supported mob revolts into Mitt Romney's blunder. Journalists couldn't risk having Obama's campaign slogan "Osama is dead" being amended with "and so is our ambassador." After our ambassador to Libya was murdered in a preplanned, coordinated attack on our embassy last week, preceded by an attack on our embassy in Egypt (and followed by attacks on our embassies in Yemen, Indonesia, Tunisia and Lebanon), Romney criticized the Obama administration for "sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt."...

    Full title: Ground Reports from the “Depression that Shall Not Be Named” — things we notice that the corrupt media won’t report that show this is indeed a Depression On my desk, just under the computer monitor, I have a little box full of slips of scrap paper. I’ve been doing this since I was a kid because the nuns who taught me in Catholic School refused to ever waste paper. Anything that comes into my home that’s blank on one side and has outlived its usefulness is drawn and quartered and spends some time as scrap paper in that...

    Back in February, 2007, Ezra Klein created a private Google Group called JournOList (or J-List) for fellow leftwing journalists, in order that they may collude and create a united front, all on a similar message each day. This developed into a rather large scandal in March of 2009, when Politico (surprisingly, for it is decidedly left-of-center) revealed the group and its intent.Once the group was identified, and several examples of collusion were noted, the group disbanded. However, who among us believes that the collusion stopped there?Let us review a recent posting on WonkBlog, a division of the Washington Post and...

    George W. Bush did it in 2000. So did John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes and Benjamin Harrison. Could President Obama be next? It’s not often that a presidential candidate wins the election while losing the popular vote, but polling suggests it could happen again in 2012 if the race tightens just a bit. A handful of new polls today show President Obama leading in important battleground states. Surveys by CBS-New York Times-Quinnipiac rate him ahead in Virginia (50-46 percent) and Wisconsin (51-45 percent), while erasing a Romney lead in Colorado to pull ahead narrowly (48-47 percent). The last batch...
  • Critical audio gap in “complete” Romney tape released by Mother Jones

    Turns out tape cuts out part of controversial Romney answer. David Corn of Mother Jones released the “complete” audio and video of the secretly recorded Mitt Romney speech at a private fundraiser. Yet the complete audio and video is not complete. There is a gap in the recording immediately after Romney’s now famous discussion of the 47% of voters who don’t pay taxes. The cut in the audio and video comes while Romney is in mid-sentence, so we actually do not have the full audio of what Romney said on the subject. The next audio/video (Part 2) picks up with...
  • Los Angeles Times Op-Ed: 'Innocence of Muslims' doesn't meet free-speech test

    U.S. 1st Amendment rights distinguish between speech that is simply offensive and speech deliberately tailored to put lives and property at immediate risk. In one of the most famous 1st Amendment cases in U.S. history, Schenck vs. United States, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. established that the right to free speech in the United States is not unlimited. "The most stringent protection," he wrote on behalf of a unanimous court, "would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic." Holmes' test — that words are not protected if their nature and...

    The press corps asked no questions during Monday’s White House press conference about the meltdown of President Barack Obama‘s high-profile Muslim outreach policy. Instead, they spent time asking low-impact questions, such as whether officials timed today’s announcement of a new lawsuit against Chinese auto part makers to aid the president’s two campaign stops in Ohio. They used up the bulk of their limited time throwing softball questions. “It was a beautiful weekend for golf and he wasn’t out on the course,” asked one reporter, according to a transcript. “Is it safe to assume maybe he was doing some preparation [for...
