  • Halperin: Obama's Shutdown Strategy Banks On The Press Blaming Republicans Like They Did In the '90s

    The list of things on which Barack Obama has been wrong goes on to the crack of doom.  But there's one thing on which the President is surely right. In devising his strategy for dealing with the shutdown, the prez can count on the MSM to blame Republicans. Mark Halperin bared the president's calculus on today's Morning Joe, saying the Obama admin has little incentive to negotiate because it believes a "sympathetic" press will blame Republicans like they did in the 1990s, accusing them of being "obstructionist."  View the video after the jump. Halperin offered what amounted to an indictment...

    RNC Formally Drops NBC, CNN from 2016 Debates by Mike Flynn 16 Aug 2013, 8:32 AM PDT post a comment At its Summer meeting in Boston on Friday, the RNC formally adopted a resolution excluding NBC and CNN from hosting or moderating Republican primary debates during the 2016 Presidential campaign. The vote comes after RNC Chair Reince Priebus urged the networks to cancel their plans to air films celebrating the life of Hillary Clinton. Clinton is widely expected to run for President. "Your credibility as a supposedly unbiased news network will most certainly be jeopardized by the decision to show...

    "There are too many people on the American right who hate the very notion of Barack Obama in the White House...They hate not just his politics but him," says Chris Matthews. Let me finish tonight with this. I said it before and am now saying it again. There are too many people on the American right who hate the very notion of Barack Obama in the White House. It grates on them, just as it thrills – even now – tens of millions of others. They hate not just his politics but him. Think about all the days we have...

    Media Trackers Montana ^ | July 26, 2013 | Ron Catlett
    The Associated Press (AP) is refusing to comment on why it requested that the Montana Department of Justice (MDOJ) give it a list of the names and personal information of every concealed weapons permit (CWP) holder in the state... Montana’s Republican Attorney General Tim Fox had denied requests by the AP and a Boston media outfit called MuckRock News for all information pertaining to the state’s CWP holders. Fox cited concerns that the width and breadth of the requests violated CWP holders’ “reasonable expectation of privacy” guaranteed by the Montana Constitution... AP reporter Matt Gouras formally requested the information on...
  • The Media Censorship That Put Barack Obama Back in the White House

    07/23/2013 12:10:00 PM PDT · by DBCJR · 19 replies
    ...Network evening news viewers in 2012 never once heard the embarrassing prediction by Obama’s economic team that passage of the $787 billion “stimulus” would halt the rise of unemployment at 8%. (In reality, the jobless rate stayed above that mark for 44 months, the worst economic performance since the Great Depression.) There was just a single network mention last year (on ABC) of Obama’s broken promise of cutting the federal budget deficit “by half by the end of my first term in office.” Reporters on CBS and NBC never once brought up this inconvenient truth. All three evening newscasts buried...
  • National Geographic gun expose instead exposes journalistic bias

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 19 July, 2013 | David Codrea
    A National Geographic “undercover team” wants to end private firearm sales and ban those they find disturbing. They never say it honestly and outright, but that’s the conclusion one walks away with after viewing the hysterical hit piece embedded in a July 16 ABC “Nightline” report. “Investigative journalist” Mariana van Zeller is appropriately incredulous and intimidated as “former police officer and firearms expert turned private investigator” Jesse Torrez guides her through such shocking activities as looking up classified ads on the internet, dialing the phone and driving to meet people to make private transactions. Had someone with experience in such...
  • The Media’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Excuse: Blame the Zimmerman verdict on Florida’s gun laws.

    National Review ^ | 07/16/2013 | Allen Ginzburg
    Since the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, countless journalists and pundits have attempted to blame Florida’s laws for the outcome. All of these references seem to share a misunderstanding of those laws and the relevant facts. Salon’s Emily Bazelon claimed that people should “blame the state’s bad laws for Trayvon Martin’s death.” An even better example is the Washington Post’s Wonkbook: Florida’s gun laws, for instance, makes cases like this one likely and even inevitable. Would Zimmerman have left his car and followed Martin without the comfort of the cold steel strapped to his body? It’s unlikely. But Florida’s...

    Bias: Evidence revealed so far in the Trayvon Martin murder trial shatters the media narrative that shooter George Zimmerman acted as a rabid racist hunting down an angelic black boy. For a full week last year after the tragedy, NBC "Nightly News" and "Today" ran audio tape of Zimmerman allegedly telling a 911 dispatcher, "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black." To an audience that didn't know better, that was damning evidence — a seemingly open-and-shut case of racial profiling. Only, it was a frame-up. NBC producers doctored the recording to portray Zimmerman as a...

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | June 24, 2013 | John Nolte
    When it comes to protecting President Obama and the left-wing agenda, we have seen the media turn against its own before. Bob Woodward felt the wrath of his colleagues after popping the balloon of Obama's dishonest sequester narrative; and after numerous errors, the one that almost finally did Howard Kurtz in was the one aimed at the media's politically correct sacred cow of the week. Now it looks to be Glenn Greenwald's turn. The recent collapse of Obama's poll numbers (and with it, much of his agenda) seems directly tied to Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker currently on the run...

    Well, right on cue, Politico arrives this morning like the cavalry with an appallingly dishonest (but expected) piece of reporting that falls right in line with what Congressional Democrats did yesterday. It is as pure a piece of coordination and left-wing propaganda as you will ever read. And this is the only kind of investigative reporting Politico ever does. Imagine if Politico poured these same resources into investigating the IRS's connections to the White House or the shaping of the IRS talking points by the State Department. But today's Politico piece is all about changing the subject. All it looks...

    In chapter 1 of the book "Public Opinion", Walter Lippmann writes the following: (page 40) The wireless constantly used the statistics of the intelligence bureau at Verdun, whose chief, Major Cointet, had invented a method of calculating German losses which obviously produced marvelous results. Every fortnight the figures increased a hundred thousand or so. These 300,000, 400,000, 500,000 casualties put out, divided into daily, weekly, monthly losses, repeated in all sorts of ways, produced a striking effect. Our formulae varied little: 'according to prisoners the German losses in the course of the attack have been considerable' ... 'it is proved...

    You just knew this was bound to happen. Some on the left are trying to blame George W. Bush for Obama's IRS fiasco. Take for example Mediaite's resident Obama apologist Tommy Christopher, who wrote a much ado about nothing post on May 16 insinuating that this egregious abuse of government power stems from former Bush appointed IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman – and that credit for clearing this whole thing up will go to Obama.

    Hillary better thank her god, The Father of Lies, that she’s not a conservative like Sarah Palin, because if she were a conservative, after last week’s blistering testimony against her by the Benghazi whistle blowers, all news outlets, far and wide, would be yelling “off with conservative Hillary’s head”. But not The Original, Leftist, Hillary. Original Hillary gets a pass. Yep, the numb-nuts that make up the ubiquitous fake news organizations gave scant to zero coverage of the testimonies that completely contradicted Mrs. Clinton’s account of the Benghazi Massacre. For instance, MSNBC gave no live coverage for the Benghazi hearings...

    “I now agree that it’s fruitless to give the benefit of the doubt to people who are so obviously corrupt, so clearly malevolent, so bent on hurting innocent people for their own sick gain,” Aurora Sentinel editor Dave Perry wrote in an April 25 editorial. “No more due process in the clear-cut case of insidious terrorism. “When the facts are so clearly before all Americans, for the whole world to see, why bother with this country’s odious and cumbersome system of justice?” he asked. “Send the guilty monsters directly to Guantanamo Bay for all eternity and let them rot in...

    (PP)- Tuesday NBC News, a radical left wing news organization, announced they mercifully will be ending “The Chris Matthews Show,” an unwatched syndicated public affairs production broadcast out of the NBC News Washington D.C. bureau. The final edition of the dismal program will be forced onto the airwaves July 21. The half-hour slobber-fest aired primarily on Sunday mornings, in an obviously failed attempt to compete with highly respected political programs like “FOX News Sunday.” “Matthews says he is ending the syndicated Sunday show to focus on some MSNBC show called “Hardball,” said a liberal political insider. “But Chris has to...
  • How did journalists make themselves associates of the state?

    Back in 2011, I wrote about how George Creel's plan with the Committee for Public Information (CPI) was to make journalists associates of the state. Here is in part what he wrote: (page 17) With the nation in arms, the need was not so much to keep the press from doing the hurtful things as to get it to do the helpful things. It was not servants we wanted, but associates. Better far to have the desired compulsions proceed from within than to apply them from without. And from page 18: My proposition, in lieu of the proposed law, was...

    72 Congressmen slam media for failing to cover Gosnell, Planned Parenthood infanticide remarks WASHINGTON, D.C., April 18, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a sternly worded letter, 72 congressman have accused the three leading mainstream media networks – ABC, NBS, and CBS – of “blatant media bias” for failing to cover two of the biggest abortion-related stories in recent years: the trial of “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell, and remarks made by a Planned Parenthood representative in support of infanticide. “The broadcasters’ blackout of the Planned Parenthood infanticide lobbying scandal and the Gosnell ‘House of Horrors’ murder trial are the biggest...

    Predictably, the American Pravda Press immediately began conjecturing that the tragic terrorist act in Boston, at the Marathon, was possibly caused by 'right wing extremists'. Quoted Peter Bergen: ""One of the things that I'd be looking at, once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used. If it, for instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, sort of a signature of al Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get hold of now, it might be some other kind of right wing extremists..."We've also seen other extremist groups, right...
