    A conservative media watchdog says major news networks appear to be going out of their way to bury the news of President Obama's collapsing poll numbers. During the midterm election cycle of 2006, ABC, CBS and NBC reported regularly about President George W. Bush's low numbers in public opinion polls. But the Media Research Center says during the current midterm cycle, the networks don’t seem to be as interested in reporting similar poll results about Barack Obama's performance. According to an MRC study, all three of the big news networks have mentioned public opinion surveys related to Obama just nine...

    It's getting difficult and slinking toward impossible to defend the Affordable Care Act. The latest blow to Democratic candidates, liberal activists, and naďve columnists like me came Monday from the White House, which announced yet another delay in the Obamacare implementation. For the second time in a year, certain businesses were given more time before being forced to offer health insurance to most of their full-time workers. Employers with 50 to 99 workers were given until 2016 to comply, two years longer than required by law. During a yearlong grace period, larger companies will be required to insure fewer employees...

    MISSPEAK 1: to speak (as a word) incorrectly 2: to express oneself imperfectly or incorrectly [e.g., claims now that he misspoke himself] In an editorial of today, the New York Times couldn't bring itself to say the simple truth: that President Obama lied when he repeatedly assured Americans that, under Obamacare, if they liked their healthcare insurance policies they would be able to keep them. The most the Times was able to admit was that [emphasis added throughout] "Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that." Misspoke. Yes, of course.

    Cue up the indignant reactions: President Barack Obama and his family are about to go on an eight-day vacation on the Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard, an elite playground for the East Coast wealthy set. Often the criticism of a president's vacation is partisan in nature, which is why White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed a question about it when asked whether Obama's vacation was too extravagant. "I would just check what they said six years ago," he said, referring to a period when a Republican president, George W. Bush, was in office. Bush, who vacationed at his Texas ranch...

That’s far from the case,” she told Errol Louis during an appearance on Road to City Hall. Despite civil liberties advocates’ fears that monitoring efforts have gone too far, “there are lots of protections built into the system,” Ms. Napolitano said, pointing to a privacy office embedded in her own department that is “constantly reviewing our policies and...

    Last week John Nolte of Breitbart observed that the mainstream media had failed to break any of the controversial news occupying Washington. This week Paul Farhi of the Washington Post, without intending to, explained why. There are four stories harming President ObamaÂ’s approval rating, and the heirs of Tarbell and Woodward and Novak uncovered none of them. The long-simmering tale of what happened before, during, and after the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, was all but ignored by media other than Fox until Gregory HicksÂ’ blockbuster testimony before the House Oversight Committee last...

    The Obama administration is postponing an award for an Egyptian activist who was subjected to a "virginity test" after protesting in Cairo´s Tahrir Square. The State Department had said Samira Ibrahim would be among recipients of an International Women of Courage award presented by Secretary of State John Kerry and first lady Michelle Obama on Friday. Now the State Department says she won´t be honored Friday because of anti-American and anti-Semitic comments on her Twitter account. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday officials will first study the tweets, which include support for attacks against U.S. diplomatic

    Before President Obama decides once and for all to fly off the fiscal cliff like a leftist eagle, he’s meeting with all of his lackeys in the media. That started today with four MSNBC primetime hosts entering the West Wing to lick the shoes of the President. First, Ed Schultz tweeted that he was meeting with Obama to discuss the fiscal cliff; then Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery let on that she’d seen Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Al Sharpton – a group with the combined IQ of a single kumquat – entering the West Wing.

    On Monday, I wrote that it would be wrong to prejudge CNN host Candy Crowley before she turned in her performance as a debate moderator. Just the week prior, ABC reporter Martha Raddatz was preemptively criticized for inviting President Barack Obama to attend her wedding in the 1990s, but she ended up being a straight moderator who advanced the vice presidential debate admirably. I wanted to extend the benefit of the doubt to Crowley, to not preemptively criticize her before she was worthy of criticism. Well, the verdict is in and criticism is entirely warranted.

And even thought Crowley later admitted Romney was “right in the main,” Matthews and his panel praised Crowley for her courage. “Do you realize, Joy — you’re a woman here, let me tell you, do you realize the guts it took for Candy, even crystal in memory, knowing he had said ‘an act of terror,” Matthews said....

    To be blunt, Mitt Romney cleaned President Obama’s clock in the presidential debate Wednesday night. It was such a lopsided victory that 67 percent of debate watchers questioned in a CNN poll gave it to the Republican challenger. But it gets worse for the incumbent Democrat. “No presidential candidate has topped 60% in that question since it was first asked in 1984,” said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. Yet as bad as the president was, the freak-out by leftists and their media enablers was the stuff of legend. More subtly, the media establishment is busy softening Obama’s failure via absurd...

    Five days before the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya, the U.S. state department posted an Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) memo saying there was no credible threat of violence against the U.S. for the then-upcoming September 11 anniversary. That memo has since been scrubbed from government websites.The memo read in part: "The OSAC has no credible information to suggest that Al-Qaeda or any other terrorist group is plotting any kind of attack overseas to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of September 11." Far from warning of impeding danger, the memo told U.S. personnel that increased media attention for...

Highlights on the agenda: ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House. The network plans a primetime special -- 'Prescription for America' -- originating from the East Room, exclude opposing voices on...

    Accuracy In Media ^ | JUNE 1, 2009 | CLIFF KINCAID
    Forty years ago Reed Irvine started Accuracy in Media because he understood that the media were trying to undermine the war effort in Vietnam. Later, he formed Accuracy in Academia, realizing that the seeds of the media problem rested in the colleges and universities. Reed gave me my first job out of college, in 1978, after I had completed an internship at Stan Evans' National Journalism Center. Back in the 1970s, I learned what journalism was all about when I studied from Curtis MacDougall's classic textbook, Interpretative Reporting. I understood then that a massive shift had taken place from objective...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | May 28, 2009 | Don Feder
    It was a foregone conclusion that The New York Times would love Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. A long-time practitioner of identity politics, the paper is fixated on race, gender and class. With Sotomayor, it has a nominee who satisfies all three. In yesterday’s editorial, The Times trilled, “It’s impossible not to be moved by Judge Sotomayor’s story — born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents and brought up in a city housing project.” The left believes quotas should even be applied to seats on the Supreme Court. At last, we have an Hispanic nominee — hooray,...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | May 26, 2009 | Don Feder
    In reporting on the contretemps between former Vice President Dick Cheney and Colin Powell, The New York Times continues its longstanding agenda to get the Republican Party to move to the left. In yesterday’s paper, The Times reported on Powell’s Sunday appearance on “Face The Nation,” where the former Secretary of State boldly declared “I am still a Republican” (despite having endorsed Barack Obama) and called for an “after-action review” of GOP losses in the last election. “Mr. Powell’s appearance underlined an extraordinary public struggle among Republicans over the future of the party,” The Times informed us in the hushed...

  • NY Times Just Can’t Figure Out Obama’s Position on Israel

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | May 18, 2009 | Don Feder
    In a front-page story in today’s paper, The New York Times just can’t seem figure out what President Obama will do about Israel — like you’d need a crystal ball to figure it out. In speculating on today’s meeting between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, The Times refers to the latter as “Israel’s hawkish prime minister.” Why, because he’s unwilling to put Israel’s security in the hands of its sworn enemies — Hamas and Fatah? The Times refuses to call Hamas a terrorist group, but Netanyahu is “hawkish.” Not coincidentally, everyone quoted in the article thinks Obama will...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | May 13, 2009 | Don Feder
    In a story today, The New York Times tries to explain the subprime lending crisis and why so many minority mortgages ended up in default. But full disclosure would have implicated the Democrats. The paper notes that there have been higher default rates for blacks and Hispanics than whites. That’s because, in the boom years of mortgage lending, minorities were more likely to get subprime loans. The Times reports that in 2006, 17.5% of white homeowners got subprime (below the prevailing interest rate) mortgages, compared to 52.8% of blacks and 44.9% of Hispanics. Because these were loans to borrowers who...

    On Morning Joe today, Joe Scarborough nailed the Washington press corps for its sycophantish performance at the White House Correspondents Association dinner this past Saturday night: “like a bunch of teenage girls waiting for a Bay City Rollers concert, waiting to scream at the top of their [lungs].” Mika Brzezinski, agreeing with Joe, lifted the veil on the goings-on behind the scenes, describing an enraptured TV production crew scrambling to get the most flattering shots of the prez and First Lady.

    When a New York Times columnist says Republicans are “out of touch,” it’s like Kim Jong-Il, the midget mental patient who runs North Korea, or Holocaust-denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad saying someone needs a good dose of reality.

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- Millions of people jobless. Billions of dollars in bailouts. Trillions of dollars in U.S. debt. And yet, for the first time in years, more Americans than not say the country is on the right track. In a sign that Barack Obama has inspired hopes for a brighter future in the first 100 days of his presidency, an Associated Press-GfK poll shows that 48 percent of Americans believe the United States is headed in the right direction — compared with 44 percent who disagree. The "right direction" number is up 8 points since February and a remarkable 31...
