  • Why MSM tizzy? Pope Francis isn't blatantly condemning homosexuality, but neither is he condoning it

    While Pope Francis isn't blasting homosexuality, neither is he conferring any blessings upon it, either. He, as well as anyone else, knows that there are zero scriptural references that condone homosexuality. And while liberal Roman Catholic usurpers may argue ad naseum that the scriptures really don't mean what they apparently say, and have been taken out of context, this is baselessly arguing AGAINST something, rather than FOR something (that the scriptures condone homosexuality). Secondly, attempting to diverge via a red herring and saying that there are topics that the scriptures don't talk about or condone , that is a logically...
  • Washington Post to be sold to Jeff Bezos

    Washington Post ^ | August 5, 2013
    The Washington Post Co. has agreed to sell its flagship newspaper to founder and chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos, ending the Graham family’s stewardship of one of America’s leading news organizations after four generations. Bezos, whose entrepreneurship has made him one of the world’s richest men, will pay $250 million in cash for The Post and affiliated publications to the Washington Post Co., which owns the newspaper and other businesses. Seattle-based Amazon will have no role in the purchase; Bezos himself will buy the news organization and become its sole owner when the sale is completed, probably within 60...

    Time's up. We need a news wire service that is going to at least *strive* for objectivity. Today, with Obama in the White House, ABC, NBC, CBS, AP, and Reuters, there is NO objective reporting. I figure initially we're going to need volunteers, a LOT of them, since the only way to verify stories is going to be through unrelated volunteer journalists providing the same set of facts for the same story. I can't guess that we're going to have money to pay volunteers for the first year or so. I wouldn't go anywhere else than here to look for...
  • PICKET: Garofalo lies about Limbaugh?

    Is Janeane Garofalo lying about Rush Limbaugh? It sure seems that way. Ms. Garofalo, the actress, liberal activist, and failed radio host went after Mr.Limbaugh, the number-one rated talk-radio host in the country, during a recent interview with the Village Voice. An exclusive interview with Mr. Limbaugh raises questions about the actress' honesty.
  • CNN's Susan Roesgen Coverage Of Tea Party: An Object Lesson In Bias

    Start Thinking Right ^ | April 18, 2009 | Michael Eden
    Newsbusters was all over CNN's Fox News-bashing, Tea-Party-bashing, ordinary-American bashing "reporter" Susan Roesgen. First, the video of her "reporting" - which was in the form of Roesgen attempting to undermine and refute the thousands of tea partiers rather than simply reporting on the event: For all of her bashing of Fox News as some "rightwing conservative" (and therefore presumably illegitimate) entity, Susan Roesgen had personally TWICE applied with Fox. Maybe her issues with Fox are more psychological and personal than journalistic? Now for some of the Newsbusters piece: CNN's Fox-Bashing/Fox-Job Applying Roesgen 'Tak(ing) a Break' By Seton Motley April 17,...
  • 'Disgusting' Doesn't Cover It (Tea Party Comments From Anderson Cooper & Rachel Maddow

    ... It's sickening, really, to see how MSNBC "covered" the nationwide tea parties on Wednesday. After providing precious little advance coverage - a good way to hold down the crowd, one supposes - they openly mocked participants, even doing so in subtly profane ways. Amazingly, anchors such as Anderson Cooper on CNN and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC snickered about the participants at the tea parties being "teabaggers" and "teabagging" knowing full well that the term is slang for a disguisting sexual act. At one point, a guest on Maddows show even explained that ...

    It seems the Bush administration -- being a group of sane, informed adults -- has been secretly tapping Arab terrorists without warrants. During the CIA raids in Afghanistan in early 2002 that captured Abu Zubaydah and his associates, the government seized computers, cell phones and personal phone books. Soon after the raids, the National Security Agency began trying to listen to calls placed to the phone numbers found in al Qaeda Rolodexes. That was true even if you were "an American citizen" making the call from U.S. territory -- like convicted al Qaeda associate Iyman Faris who, after being arrested,...

    It's time for the 18th annual Media Research Center's awards for the most biased, manipulative or downright goofy quotes from liberals in the "mainstream" media. I'm honored to serve, once again, on MRC's distinguished panel of conservatively biased judges. Here are some of the highlights from among the winners and runners-up of Best Notable Quotables of 2005:

    HOW THE NYTIMES IS RINGING IN 2006 By Michelle Malkin   ·   December 31, 2005 10:45 PM Yes, it's New Year's Eve. And since there's no rest for the NYTimes, I'm not taking it easy tonight either. You see, NYTimes' reporter James Risen has been a busy bee over the holidays. The co-author of the infamous Chicken Little opus exposing the NSA special collection program to monitor international communications between suspected al Qaeda operatives and their contacts will be launching his new book, State of War, on January 3. Turns out the publisher of Risen's new book, which includes a discussion...

    Liars lying about lies, by Mike Rosen Vice President Dick Cheney gave a speech on Nov. 21 at the American Enterprise Institute defending the administration's Iraq policy. This was part of a long overdue counterattack against the tactics of the president's political critics and their allies in the liberal media. Cheney made a particular point of setting the record straight about his criticism of some of the critics. He said, "Several days ago, I commented briefly on some recent statements that have been made by some members of Congress about Iraq. Within hours of my speech, a report went out...

    As President Bush launched a new effort Wednesday to gain public support for the Iraq war, a new poll found most Americans do not believe he has a plan that will achieve victory. Just 35 percent wanted to set a specific timetable for their exit, as some critics of the war have suggested. Among poll respondents, 55 percent said they did not believe Bush has a plan that will achieve victory for the United States in Iraq; 41 percent thought he did. Asked about Bush's handling of the Iraq war, 54 percent said it was poor, while 44 percent thought...
