    Joe Scarborough reported something stunning on today’s Morning Joe—an insight into just how blatantly, consciously biased one of America’s leading newspapers was in its effort to elect Hillary Clinton. Said Scarborough: “There was somebody that held an extraordinarily important position in print media who brought their people together after Hillary Clinton lost and literally said, ‘we did the best we could do. We tried and we failed. But we did the best we could do.'” View the video here.
  • Of Course, The Media Went Nuts Over Melania Trump's Plagiarism Fiasco,

    07/24/2016 11:58:13 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | July 24, 2016 | Matt Vespa
    The Republican National Convention is over, but that didnÂ’t stop the media from going nuts over the plagiarism flap that marred the first night of events. Melania Trump delivered what was a very good speech on the first night of the convention. Yet, there were a couple paragraphs that looked and sounded very familiar. Why? It was because those passages were lifted from Michelle ObamaÂ’s 2008 address to the Democratic National Convention. Team Trump had tripped up, so the media blood sports began. As Guy noted, to make matters worse, it appears as if the original author of MichelleÂ’s speech...
  • Media Screwing Up Reports On The AR-15 During Mass Shootings Isn’t New,

    06/19/2016 12:39:06 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | June 19, 2016 | Matt Vespa
    The Orlando attack was horrifying. A sick individual who pledged allegiance to ISIS over the phone and on social media senselessly gunned down 49 people inside Pulse nightclub in what has become the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. He used a Sig Sauer MCX semiautomatic rifle, which is an AR-15-style rifle that has similar features, but uses a different operating system. It was not an AR-15 rifle as originally reported. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop members of the media from bashing the AR-15 because that’s the firearm liberal want to ban. More importantly, it’s the firearm that President Obama wants to ban, despite...

    The president of CBS News is standing by one of the network's journalists who was arrested outside a Donald Trump rally that was canceled amid violence between Trump supporters and protesters. David Rhodes tweeted that journalist Sopan Deb, who was covering the rally at the University of Illinois' Chicago campus on Friday, was handcuffed and charged with resisting arrest. "On tape you see he did not resist, identified himself as working press," Rhodes said in his tweet. CBS News also aired footage of the rally and of Deb's arrest, which he managed to capture on tape. In the accompanying article,...

    I almost feel like today is a show based on the title of a Kevin Trudeau book. As a matter of fact, when he gets released from prison in 6 or 7 years, he could reinvent himself as a conservative commentator or author and write a book, "News Stories They Don't Want You To Know About." But naturally, I digress. Even without talking, I digress. It's a huge problem. Anyway, today's show deals a little bit with the Ben Carson attack and backlash, and along not necessarily those lines but along the lines of sharing stories that I feel have...

    The CNBC executive who oversaw the disastrous Republican presidential debate is a former Clinton White House staffer, Breitbart News has learned. Brian Steel, senior vice president of communications at CNBC, was the second highest-ranking network official at Wednesday night’s debate in Colorado after only CNBC CEO Mark Hoffman. Steel was described by an insider as the “executive on hand” for the debate, which was marked by the moderators’ partisan attacks and gotcha questions for the Republican candidates. Brian Steel worked in Bill Clinton’s White House as a domestic policy adviser to Vice President Al Gore. His White House gig was...

    Bill Clinton was interviewed by NBC News, discussing Hillary’s run, their foundation, and the income he makes from speeches. The Clintons have certainly stuck with the narrative of being average people. He defends his half million dollar speaking fees with “I gotta pay our bills,” and “it’s the most independence I can get.” While there in nothing wrong with his right to earn a living by fetching great sums for his appearances, the Clintons really need to stop pretending they are one of the “little people.” And whenever they get caught being rich, they throw in a something about being...
  • The Assassination of Scott Walker By The Coward Liberal Media

    We all knew this was coming: liberal attacks on Gov. Scott Walker for not having a college degree. In 1990, Walker decided to drop out of Marquette University during the spring semester of his senior year - a decision that’s mystified the political left. But then there’s former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who–as Dan wrote–basically questioned Walker’s intelligence: "This is a particular problem for Scott Walker which has not been an issue yet, but it will. Scott Walker, were he to become president, would be the first president in many generations who did not have a college degree. So the...
  • Only Propaganda Is 'Good Journalism'?

    Why are liberals in so much denial about liberal bias in the news? Why do they think they're bending over backward to be "objective" doing that which Republicans see as partisan activism? Daniel Froomkin of the Huffington Post -- formerly of The Washington Post -- suggests an answer. He is exactly the kind of liberal agitator in the newsroom who wants every news story to be a blazing editorial. Every reporter must divide the world clearly between Liberal Sense and Conservative Nonsense. His latest article is titled, "Writing a Neutral Story About Something So Heartless As the Food Stamp Vote...
  • 5 of the Most Hysterical Liberal Overreactions To Criticism of Obama

    08/20/2013 4:01:26 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | August 20, 2013 | John Hawkins
    When George Bush was in office, liberals regularly compared him to Hitler, speculated that he was behind 9/11, fantasized about murdering him and generally talked about him like he was the Son of Satan. This was called "speaking the truth to power." Then Barack Obama came into office and ironically, dissent isn't so patriotic anymore. Suddenly these same people became angry, humorless scolds who believe that the President of United States is beyond criticism. Of course, the truth is that they haven't changed at all; they're just hypocrites. If you want to see how hypocritical and oversensitive to criticism they...
  • CNN Never Mentions 'Obama' in Article on Joblessness

    08/15/2013 9:05:20 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | August 15, 2013 | Larry Elder
    The headline at CNN Money was, "Why America's Youth Aren't Finding Jobs." If you expected an analysis of how and why President Barack Obama's policies hurt the job market for the young, think again. Believe it or not, CNN wrote a piece, supposedly explaining the tight job market, without using the following words: Obama, Obama administration, taxes, regulations, "stimulus" program or, of course, ObamaCare. Stunning. Apparently, CNN believes the country has been on autopilot for the last five years, with policy decisions by the White House having no effect, for good or for ill. Since CNN will not, let's examine...
  • Trayvon Martin's run-ins with the law few knew, ignored by U.S. media

    Not only did the media and law enforcement cover up Trayvon Martin’s criminal record — the attack on Zimmerman and subsequent show trial brought systemic corruption to light and led to the takedown of senior officials. Much thanks to Andrea Shea King, Pat Dollard and The Last Refuge (who has done yeoman’s work on this case):
  • Liberal Media Bias? Don't Make Bob Herbert Laugh!

    04/27/2013 9:54:16 AM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 17 replies
    It's enough to make you wonder whether Bob Herbert inhabits the same planet as the rest of us. Appearing on Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC show this morning, former New York Times columnist Herbert literally laughed out loud at the notion that American media leans liberal. According to Herbert, the bias in the American media is "overwhelmingly" to the right. Herbert's snicker came in response to a statement by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, also an MH-P guest. Chozick recently wrote an article reporting on the Koch brothers' possible interest in buying the Tribune Company, which among other media outlets owns...

    On Monday Chris Matthews was free to speculate that the Boston Bomber was some right-winger because it was on tax day.Now that we know the (still suspected) bombers are Muslim with possible ties to radical Islam (which some would argue is redundant) Chuck Todd (also at MSNBC)  doesn't want to draw any conclusions.Amazing. I used to think they thought WE were stupid, but now I know THEY are stupid and we're just victims of it.

    Mitt Romney-bashing -- 5 months after the fricking election -- in an on-line pop music article.The site is called Pop Dust. And this snippet comes out of an article about the 10 richest musicians of all time: 3. Bono: $600 millionPaul Hewson is known as much for his global diplomacy and forays into venture capital as U2’s music. His investment in Facebook’s IPO—via his Elevation Partners private equity firm—didn’t make him a billionaire, but U2’s “360 Tour” grossed nearly $800 million between 2009 and 2011, making it the biggest tour ever. (2005-06’s “Vertigo” tour is fifth on that list.) Combine that with Bono’s many...

    It is not often that members of the liberal national media admit their biases. Americans know that the media is not impartial and that objectivity is not a priority when reporting on current events. Americans need and deserve a balanced media. The New York Times Public Editor Arthur Brisbane gave us insight into the Times’ liberal slant in his final column after two years with the newspaper. He criticizes the Times for being “powerfully shaped by a culture of like minds.” The members of the liberal national media are surrounded by others who share their beliefs and political prejudices. This...
  • Halperin: No Liberal Bias In Saying Exclusion Of God From DNC Platform No Big Deal

    Methinks the MSMer doth protest too much. If Mark Halperin weren't keenly aware that he was about to try to whitewash a huge vulnerability for the Democrats, why would he have prefaced his remark with the disclaimer that he and others weren't showing liberal bias by claiming it was no big deal? But that's exactly what Halperin did this on today's Morning Joe. The show rolled a rolled of the DNC delegates clearly voting against putting God and Jerusalem-as-the-capital-of-Israel back in the platform from which they had been removed. We then saw the convention chairman fraudently declare that two-thirds had...

    Oh, you didn't know that this week we hit the 2,000 marker of troops killed in Afghanistan? If you get your news from ABC, NBC, MSNBC, or PBS you probably don't. They didn't report it. To its credit, only CBS covered it. [h/t Tim Graham at NewsBusters]Compare that to DBF* media coverage when that grim milestone was reached in Iraq. On that day in October, 2005, those channels devoted significant time discussing it, as well as opining how it would negatively affect then-President Bush's popularity. In fact, it was with a very noticeable relish that the DBF media clocked war deaths...

    <p>Oy, what a glutton for punishment I am. I’m about to do something that’s painful but necessary: deconstruct an article published in the Magazine of this past weekend’s NY Times. Its author Steve Almond is given this valuable real estate to recycle the oft-argued claim that Fox News and the conservative talk radio are poisoning the political debate in this country. He then takes the argument one step further by saying he and his poor fellow liberals have been getting suckered into empowering and legitimizing them, and urges them should stop.</p>

If you Googled news about “Muppets” on Monday you were treated to hundreds of news stories and blog items debating whether Disney’s lovable creatures were Communists or not. You can thank Fox Business News and Media Matters for that. Eric Bolling of Follow the Money set the stage on Friday when he hosted a 7-minute segment that argued that The Muppets film – featuring bad-guy oilman Tex...
