  • Ten Thousand Demand Chris Matthews’ Suspension, MSNBC Silent

    dailycaller.com ^ | Feb. 13, 2016 | Peter Hasson
    A MoveOn.org petition demanding that MSNBC suspend "Hardball" host Chris Matthews has garnered just under 10,000 signatures, even as the network has refused to address what Huffington Post called a "clear conflict of interest." The petition began in response to outrage over Matthews' "constant shilling for Hillary Clinton." The number of petition signees has almost tripled in size since The Daily Caller reported that Hillary Clinton's biggest donors are bankrolling the congressional campaign of Matthews' wife, Kathleen. One woman who signed the petition said was "crying thinking 'my' media source is so biased." Another petitioner called Matthews' behavior an "egregious"...

    Some of the mocking press coverage of Donald Trump is so over the top that it is a surprise that there has been so little criticism of the absurd antics of such media outlets as the New York Daily News and the Huffington Post. Fortunately there is one bright light to counter this absurdity in the form of Jake Tapper of CNN. Tapper expressed his criticism in an interview published yesterday in The Wrap.

    Losing a pet is heart-wrenching. Anyone who denies this either never had a pet or never had a heart to wrench. We had plenty of time to prepare for our girl's passing, and I mistakenly believed that this would make it easier or somehow a relief when she died. It was not easy and it definitely was not a relief. Zoey was a salty old broad to the end, and the departure of her larger-than-life presence has left us with a huge hole in our world; I can't believe how much I miss her.

    And why she should listen to Killer Mike. At the the Iowa Democratic forum on Monday night, Hillary Clinton took one of the easiest questions lobbed her way -- Who is your favorite president? -- and blasted it right into the back of her own goal. She did fine with the first part, naming Abraham Lincoln, but then dipped into the history of Reconstruction, bemoaning the vengeful way in which the North targeted the South after Lincoln's assassination. You know, he was willing to reconcile and forgive. And I don't know what our country might have been like had he...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday accused Donald Trump of making it more difficult to defeat Islamic State extremists. Speaking to the US website Mic.Com, the Tory Party leader said the billionaire was making the "fundamental mistake" of trying to blame all Muslims for the violent ideology of a minority while praising Islam as a religion of peace. Trump, currently leading national polls to be the Republican Party nominee ahead of the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1, sparked international censure in December after he demanded all Muslims be barred from entering the US following the Paris massacre.

    In an effort to build an audience - and credibility - Al Jazeera America has staked its reputation on deep dive investigations and topics that mainstream TV news divisions have largely abandoned amid shrinking news budgets.

It was an undercover probe about doping in sports that fingered several high-profile current athletes including the Denver Bronco's superstar quarterback Peyton Manning. But now AJAM finds itself on the hot seat as the sources of some of the allegations have begun to recant amid furious denials from the athletes. "The allegation that I would...

Immediately after that foolish announcement, entertainment did come in the way of the Huffington Post being widely mocked for their laughable policy. And ever since that announcement, it was obvious to many keen observers that they would eventually have to reverse their dopey decision. That reversal occurred yesterday with this "note" from HuffPo founder Arianna Huffington:

To some extent, it's hard to be any more precise than that. We'll have to wait and see how things unfold once the primaries get going in February. If Trump were...

Should you? Given certain assumptions, killing baby Hitler isn't a hard question.

"I was trying to get out and I couldn't get out," Boehner related. A bad dream, eh? Ah, well, probably just one of those examples of sleep knitting up our raveled sleeve of...

Eric Cantor, who is a close ally of the GOPs establishment wing. The plan suddenly collapsed last June after Cantors constituents in Virginias 7th district rejected him in favor of his primary challenger, economics professor Rep. Dave Brat. Brat won by blasting Cantor for mimicking Senator Sen. Marco Rubios effort to pass the mass-amnesty bill that would further raise high immigration levels.

    ... moment in the political life of every big-personality, more-sizzle-than-steak candidate when they step across the line of legitimacy, or illegitimacy (depending on your perspective), even for media addicted to the high ratings these candidate-entertainers provide. That moment for Sarah Palin was her Katie Couric interview in 2008 -- the hockey-mom-has-no-clothes revealing from which she, and the McCain campaign, never recovered. In Donald Trump's candidacy -- which The Huffington Post is appropriately covering in our Entertainment section -- the equivalent moment might have just happened. It was not the moment in the second Republican debate when Carly Fiorina carved him...

    Fiorina's story -- that she went from "Secretary to CEO" -- is more embellishment, than truth. In fact, Fiorina didn't rise from secretarial pool to CEO, like a real world version of "Working Girl." The daughter of the dean of Duke Law School, and top Nixon advisor, she took a part-time job as a secretary, while in law school, and then was put on the management track at AT&T. I worked in the dining hall in college, but I don't go around saying that I rose from burger flipper to Presidential Campaign press secretary. Then there is the now widely...

    Donald Trump, the loud-mouthed, bombastic, tell-me-like-it-is real estate billionaire who remains at the top of the pile in all major national and state-level polls, loves to pick on Sen. Rand Paul. He lashed out at the eye-doctor, constitutionalist and junior senator from Kentucky seemingly out of nowhere in the very beginning of the second GOP presidential debate in Simi Valley, Calif. On the very first question, Trump preemptively blasted Paul without being attacked. "Well, first of all, Rand Paul shouldn't even be on this stage." Trump told the national audience of 23 million Americans. "He's number 11, he's got 1...

    This week, Apple announced plans to roll out the iPad Pro, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Apple Pencil and a Siri-Controlled Apple TV. This came as a huge disappointment to conservative tech users who have been silently waiting for the tech conglomerate to release a product that fits their Republican lifestyle. First on their wish-list: the Apple Gun. A Texas techie complained, "I don't draw. Neither does anybody I know. So a digital pencil is garbage to me. What I'd love is a gun that can stream Hannity. I'd pay $400 for that. No question." Tim Cook and Co. made...

    Jorge Ramos is the top news anchor at Univision and one of the most recognizable faces of the Latino community. On August 25, at a Donald Trump press conference in Dubuque, Iowa he was physically removed after asking tough questions on immigration to the presidential hopeful. Trump ordered him out after exclaiming "Go back to Univision". Once outside the conference room, one of Trump's supporters told Ramos: "It's not about you. Get out of my country! Get out! It's not about you." Those words translated Trump's true meaning. He has unleashed a campaign of hatred against the Latino community starting...

    It's no secret that Bernie Sanders hates Uber. So does Hillary. As Huffington Post's Jenny Che reports:Politicians are grappling with how to approach the ride-hailing app and the "on-demand economy," also referred to as the "sharing economy." In her economic policy speech Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton seemed to distance herself from Uber, focusing instead on the implications for the labor market and the risks faced by drivers who aren't shielded by benefits and job security. This on demand or so-called gig economy is creating exciting opportunities and unleashing innovation, but its also raising hard questions about workplace protections...

    I don't imagine children in Georgetown or Chevy Chase would have similar reactions to the same sound. The episode is evidence of glaring disparities in safety and gun violence in Washington, D.C. This city the seat of international power and influence, yet parts of it, particularly the poorest parts, are being terrorized by gun violence. We desperately need solutions to this crisis. As the world watches, what will we do about it? Gun violence is on the rise in Washington, D.C. and the perpetrators are emboldened with violence spreading across the city. Those who pull the triggers are largely young...

    By far the biggest story of the summer is Donald Trump's surging candidacy for the U.S. presidency. It's obvious why. Hate him or love him, Donald Trump knows how to captivate the public's attention. He seems immune from being hurt; I want to examine why. What is it about Donald Trump that allows him to survive any occurrence that no conventional political candidate could? And, not only that, but to use these instances to further galvanize his base of supporters, while growing it? This summer, we have seen example after example of this. People were horrified when he questioned Sen....

    Black Americans view Hillary Clinton far more favorably than they do any other presidential contender, according to a Gallup survey released Monday. Eighty percent of black adults have a favorable impression of the Democratic front-runner and former secretary of state. Even when taking into account the percentage who view Clinton unfavorably, she still has a 68 percent net favorability rating among black Americans, a group that analysts at the Cook Political Report have called the "overlooked key to 2016." Clinton's favorability rating among black Americans eclipses those of the other Democratic hopefuls. The next highest rating belongs to Sen. Bernie...
