    Home Gateway Pundit Journolist Lives!… Media Coordinates SOTU Response – Networks All Describe Lib Obama As “Reaganesque” Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, January 27, 2011, 10:47 PM Don’t fool yourself… Journolist is alive and well. It was apparent this week after Obama’s SOTU Address that the state-run media is still coordinating their message to the American people. All three major networks described Obama’s confusing speech as being “Reaganesque.” They want so desperately for the failed socialist they helped elect to appear like the beloved Ronald Reagan.
  • Forgetting Sarah Palin: Should the press stop covering her?

    The Week ^ | January 24, 2011
    While the Washington Post's Dana Milbank calls for a moratorium on stories about the "over-covered" Palin, other journalists dismiss his ban as partisanship. Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank has vowed not to write about Sarah Palin in the month of February, and he's urging other commentators to join his moratorium. Milbank says "the media obsession" with Palin "began naturally and innocently enough, when the Alaska governor emerged as an electrifying presence on the Republican presidential ticket more than two years ago." But now that she's no longer a candidate or elected official, Milbank says, the "over-coverage" of Palin distorts her...

    Progressives are eternal seekers of blame, and the political class almost always looks to conservatives to cast blame. Unless of course the perpetrator can’t, even by loose criteria, be somehow aligned with conservative beliefs. Scribes had to reach deep, but most national media outlets jumped on the ‘Blame Sarah Palin’ bandwagon before the shooter’s name was even disclosed. One newspaper even quoted a staffer from the Southern Poverty Law Center, a once admired group whose existence now revolves around imaginary extremism in real gardens*. At some point on Sunday I asked myself if the WaPo blogger’s group Journolist was still...

    As we reported yesterday, Republicans plan to read aloud the Constitution of the United States when the 112th Congress kicks off on January 6th, 2011.  Many find this to be a political tactic, a gimmick of sorts.  Republicans are attempting to hold support from the Tea Party and are howling for Congress to follow the Constitution word for word.  A firm skeptic of this Republican stratagem is Ezra Klein of the Washington Post, one of the most astute minds when it comes to procedure within Congress and fiscal concerns. Yesterday he appeared for an interview with MSNBC's Nora O'Donnell to discuss the matter:Returning To...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin traveled to Haiti this weekend as a guest of the Rev. Franklin Graham and Samaritan's Purse to spotlight the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the earthquake and cholera-stricken Caribbean (half an) island nation. Instead she has found herself embroiled in a scandal, accused of bringing a hair stylist on the trip to make herself look good for the cameras and "photo-ops.".The Associated Press transmitted a photo from Haiti of Palin captioned, "Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, center, has her hair done during a visit to a cholera treatment center set up by the NGO Samaritan's Purse...

    Fox News pays Sarah Palin as a contributor to their network. And apparently to be “fair and balanced,” they also pay Judith Miller and Liz Trotta to make fun of Sarah Palin: LINK TO THE VIDEOUPDATE: Here’s what was said: LIZ TROTTA: “Alessandra Stanley [of the New York Times] had the best line [in her Nov. 11 review]. She said the new [Palin TLC] show was like ‘The Sound of Music’ without the Nazis, without the romance and without the music.” JUDITH MILLER (laughing): ”Oh, the Washington Post hated it, too . . .

    With Obama visiting Indonesia today, the New York Times has a story that is just chock-full of interesting tidbits about Obama's time living there as a child in the late 1960s. For example, the Times reports that back then Obama was "chubby" and that some of the locals referred to him as "the boy who walks like a duck." Then, of course, there's this: His nanny was an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia's relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher, longtime residents said. The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called...

    With little doubt about the outcome of tomorrow's elections, the speculation turns to what the reaction will be to the historic GOP victories. Will President Barack Obama shift toward the political center? Will all those shiny new Republican lawmakers keep their campaign promises to shrink government and control spending? Will those in the Tea Party movement remain engaged and involved once this battle has been won? All those answers will come in time but what we'll probably find out instantly is will the mainstream media abandon its self-assigned role of liberal cheerleader and return to honest reporting?

    The Great Divider — or ‘Elections Have Consequences’ Pillars of Sand The faux-Greek columns of 2008 have turned into pillars of sand, as the president’s Gallup ratings hit 43-2%, and his congressional majorities are on the verge of melting away—just two years after grand talk of a 50-year liberal regnum.* Obama has turned manic in his efforts to save his sinking presidency. Every divisive tactic has been tried — and yet so far found wanting. We have gone through, in creepy Alinskyite fashion, all the bogeymen, JournoList enemies — Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Justice Roberts, the Tea Party, John Boehner,...

    I've been assuming for a while that Sarah Palin is fairly likely to run for president, and reasonably likely to get the nomination if she does, and then if the economy is still bad she could win and then the country will crumble and suffer some apocalyptic disaster and the survivors will envy the dead. Anyway, Jonathan Martin has a terrific piece collecting some reporting about the flakiness, bordering on total dysfunctionality, of Palin's political operation. This is a huge relief: Take, for example, the case of Palin’s interaction with the campaign of Sen. Chuck Grassley, an iconic figure in...

    From Tea Party activists to “mama grizzlies,” the number of female conservative candidates in this year’s election is unprecedented. This surge in the number of right-leaning ladies has not only caught the Democratic Party’s attention. Several media outlets have jumped on board to lend support to the female democratic candidates who are in danger of losing their seats.  Politico dedicated roughly 1300 words to the subject of female candidates in this year’s election in an Oct. 12 article, but it could only spare about 174 words on the conservative candidates. The article could easily double as a campaign literature touting...

As Karl Rove pointed out tonight, with 10%+ unemployment and Obama's policies being a complete failure Dems will turn to personal attacks and try to make races about personalities...

    When the Journolist scandal broke, the leftist media’s behind-the-scenes communications about Sarah Palin revealed an anti-Christian sentiment. Now, as two stories about faith, one from President Obama and one from Christine O’Donnell, hit the headlines at roughly the same time but with very different perspectives, we take note of a clear example of anti-Christian attitudes being directed against only one side — the Right. The disparity in reporting involved in these two similar stories gives us a rare glimpse into media facilitation of the agenda of the Religious Left, to educate America that God is good and relevant when referenced...

Included in Cook's reasons for leaving, according to Daily Finance reporter Jeff Bercovici, was that Yahoo would not allow him to write about Free Republic "hosting child pornography." The Salon.com article that was linked to support that claim actually stated that Free Republic did not host child pornography.The offending Daily Finance passage now reads:"...

    DES MOINES - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used an appearance here Friday to put herself firmly at the head of the insurgency overtaking the Republican Party and to demand that the party unite behind her candidates. “The time for primary debate is over. It’s time for unity now,” Palin said, chiding the “unsuccessful campaigns and deflated political pundits” who – in Alaska and in Delaware – have refused to support their Palin-backed conservative rivals. Speaking to reporters after the speech, she dismissed Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s attempt to revive her re-election bid through a write-in campaign after losing her...

    Anxiety was pretty high in the heat of battle with the race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. However, a lot of that tension exists beyond the state of Delaware and there have been self-proclaimed conventional wisdom wizards critical of how the electoral process in Delaware has worked itself out. One of those has been former embattled Washington Post blogger Dave Weigel, who in a Slate.com post dated Sept. 14, took a few shots at conservative talker Mark Levin, calling him a "creep" for his criticisms of The Weekly Standard John McCormack, author of an unfavorable story about Delaware...
