    Applause from members of the media was heard throughout Hillary Clinton's address Friday to a joint convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists in Washington, D.C. The event, attended by more than 1,500 journalists, discourages applause from journalists during speeches by political candidates. Before Clinton's appearance, conference staffers went around the room reminding people that it's inappropriate for journalists to give politicians standing ovations.Republican nominee Donald Trump was also invited to attend, but declined. Clinton's remarks included taking shots at her opponent.
  • '60 Minutes' Failed to Air Hillary's Dodgy Answers on DNC E-Mails

    Michael Warren at The Weekly Standard notes that somehow, the staff at CBS News doesn’t have a nose for news. The hottest breaking story – the Wikileaks posting of DNC e-mails proving they were tilted toward Mrs. Clinton and plotting to damage the Sanders campaign – got left on the cutting room floor Sunday night. Does anyone believe that CBS News isn't capable of realizing this e-mail portion of Scott Pelley's interview was the hottest, and editing it in instead of out? It almost makes one wonder if CBS felt they had to clear it with the DNC or the...
  • AP Avoids Reporting Obama's Callous 'We Have Contained ISIS' Statement

    NewsBusters.org ^ | November 15, 2015 | Tom Blumer
    As of early this morning, Matt Drudge was carrying a link to a story headlining how President Obama is "under fire for saying ISIS 'contained' just hours before Paris attack." Well, Obama is under some fire, but Drudge's link is to coverage at the UK Daily Mail. That's unfortunately unsurprising, because there is little to no mention of Obama's naive, foolish and callous statement in the U.S. establishment press. So Obama may be "under fire" from people who are paying attention, but low-information news consumers (and voters) who didn't happen to see the original Thursday interview will likely remain unaware...
  • Report: Hillary Clinton ‘Negotiated Limits’ With NBC News to Avoid ‘Vicious Humor’ on ‘SNL’

    Let me connect the pro-Hillary dots for you at NBC News… This is not rocket science. In fact, the effort NBC News is pouring into rehabilitating Hillary Clinton is now so painfully blatant that even left-wing CNN is calling out the Peacock Network. And NBC News is so desperate to keep a Republican out of the White House that “Saturday Night Live” has openly joined the pro-Hillary propaganda team. NBC News partners with and funnels $400 million to left-wing BuzzFeed.NBC News partners with and funnels $200 million to the even more left-wing Vox.NBC News partners with TargetSmart, a political data...
  • Robinson: Obama has good reason to smile

    WASHINGTON • Attention has been focused on who becomes our next president, but meanwhile the incumbent is on quite a roll. Throughout his tour of Alaska, President Obama looked full of his old swagger. He took photos of Denali — the former Mt. McKinley — through the windows of Air Force One and shared them via Instagram. He used melting glaciers as a backdrop to talk about climate change, posed with small children and large fish, and became the first sitting president to venture north of the Arctic Circle. He seemed to smile throughout the trip, and why not? The...
  • Meet Bug-Eating, Urine-Drinking TV Outdoorsman Bear Grylls, Obama’s Unlikely Hiking Buddy

    09/03/2015 12:42:13 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 40 replies
    As far as hiking buddies go, Barack Obama and Bear Grylls make for an unlikely pairing. Grylls is a TV outdoorsman with a flair for drama and a propensity for drinking his own urine. Obama is cerebral and stolidly even-keeled, and, you know, the president of the United States. Nevertheless, the strange duo is slated for some bonding Tuesday while hiking the Exit Glacier, a south Alaskan river of ice that has shrunk by 1.25 miles in recent decades. They have no plans to drink urine, Grylls has confirmed, and the adventurer’s usually madcap exploits will be scaled down to...
  • GOP’s bizarro foreign policy: Alienate America’s closest allies on “day one”

    04/06/2015 5:38:08 AM PDT · by Cincinatus' Wife · 41 replies
    Salon ^ | April 6, 2015 | Simon Maloy, political writer
    When Republicans criticize Barack Obama’s foreign policy, their critiques usually break down into two broad themes: America’s enemies no longer fear us, and America’s allies no longer trust us. The part about our enemies fearing us is usually a reference to Russia – conservatives believe quite earnestly that Russia’s military expansionism over the last few years is a consequence of Vladimir Putin sizing up the president and determining that he’s a weakling. No less an authority than Peggy Noonan made this very argument just last Friday, lamenting “a Russian president who took the American’s measure and made a move, upsetting...

    A former CBS News reporter who quit the network over claims it kills stories that put President Obama in a bad light says she was spied on by a “government-related entity” that planted classified documents on her computer. In her new memoir, Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.

    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...

Elijah Cummings of Maryland, wouldn't be the IRS targeting scandal's latest twist. But Mr. Fallon didn't realize he had actually called staff for the committee's Republican majority before saying he wanted to leak documents...

    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...

Obama’s signature program, Obamacare, has been flailing in the press for weeks, and Obama apparently believes that it is about time to reshift the narrative:

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    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. As you see from the Merriam Webster definition above, the...

    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...
