  • Cable News Hammers Hillary Clinton

    Wash Examiner ^ | Aug 4, 15 | T. Becket Adams.
    Is the summer of media love over for Hillary Clinton? Cable news was not at all kind to the former secretary of state Monday, as she was dinged on multiple fronts for being supposedly out of touch — and all of this as rumors circulate that she may have a serious 2016 Democratic competitor in the form of Vice President Joe Biden. Clinton's recently announced $2 million ad buy, for example, will likely do little to convince voters she has a soft, authentic side, MSNBC talking heads suggested Monday. "I just saw her picture on the front of New York...

    A new Bloomberg poll shows Donald Trump dominating the GOP field with 21 percent of the vote — more than twice what Jeb Bush is pulling in, and 21 times Bobby Jindal's support. Poor Bobby Jindal. The crosstabs aren't online, but Bloomberg's Joshua Green has them, and he's been tweeting out some of the findings. The main takeaway? Trump's support is growing among all factions of the Republican Party. The idea that his supporters are a single kind of Republican — an angry, but marginalized, group — increasingly seems wrong. (TWEETS-AT-LINK)Media coverage of Trump's campaign has been going through something...

    Reeling from the negative publicity generated by videos showing the organization haggling over the price of baby parts resulting from abortions, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards characterized the videos as “possibly worse than the spate of bombings of abortion clinics a few years back.” “The big downside of the bombings was the loss of life of doctors, nurses, and others dedicated to improving women’s health,” Richards observed. “Bad as this was, it was at least partially offset by the wave of sympathy these deaths earned for our organization. With the videos, though, there is no offset. It’s all downside. It...

    In the wake of the decision by MSNBC to drop three of its most incendiary liberal programs, former hosts Ed Schultz of The Ed Show and Alex Wagner of Now with Alex Wagner exited with about as much class as you'd expect. Schultz apparently threw a tantrum and refused to appear on his last show.  In his place, Michael Eric Dyson gave what Mediaite calls an "understated" farewell. First and perhaps most importantly, Ed Schultz wasn’t even present to give his final MSNBC farewell — due to “pre-existing scheduling conflicts,” MSNBC told us. Instead Michael Eric Dyson guest-hosted the full hour and saved...

    Businessman Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is investigating reports that a campaign staffer wrote racially charged Facebook posts, CNN reported Friday evening. Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told the network that if confirmed to be true, advisor Sam Nunberg will be fired.  "They were offensive and they do not reflect Mr. Trump's position and we take them very seriously," Lewandowski said. "If it determined that Mr. Nunberg made these statements, then he will no longer be part of the campaign." Posts unearthed by Business Insider reportedly show Nunberg calling Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter the n-word, calling President Obama a “Socialist...

    Trump as a candidate is almost entirely a creation of the media. That is not to deny that he is adept at manipulating the media, that is perfectly plain. But it is to say that a man adept at manipulating the media has met a media eager to expose Trump to further its own needs. The media gains readers and viewers and makes money off the Trump phenomenon. History tells us that the media habitually builds up that which they will later destroy when it simply begins to bore them or suits their politics. There is a third element which...

    Hillary Clinton‘s campaign sent a letter to The New York Times lambasting them for their recent coverage of Clinton’s use of private email while she was Secretary of State. The letter, first obtained by CNN and then posted online by the Clinton campaign, is in direct response to the Times‘ most recent reporting on Clinton. The Times ran a report saying that two government inspectors general recommended the DOJ open a criminal investigation into Clinton’s emails due to classified material on her private account, but it turns out the recommendation was not on criminal grounds, so the Times ended up...

    The reporting on why U.S. Army personnel stationed at recruiting centers aren’t allowed to be armed has to make anyone who knows a little about guns, and the gun issues, wonder if those news outlets are aware of what they’re not reporting? Do they understand why some Americans feel compelled to stand outside Army recruiting centers with guns? Any curious person might then wonder if ignorance or bias is the central reason why the mainstream media so often ignores studies and facts that are inconvenient to the anti-gun-rights point of view? There are, after all, over 100 million gun owners...

The Obama administration has defended this anti-transparency measure, calling it standard practice and objecting to the term “secret deal.”...

    Planned Parenthood is in real trouble. Three shocking videos released over recent days -- with more on the way, apparently -- have shown officials at the abortion giant haggling over the price of aborted baby organs. It's ghastly, gruesome stuff, replete with one representative describing how she alters her late term abortion procedures to "crush" the baby in specific areas as to preserve sought-after and lucrative body parts. Another laughs that higher prices could help her buy "a Lamborghini." The abortion lobby argues that fetuses are not human beings worthy of legal protection, while selling the intact human organs of...

    Today’s New York Times report on the sale of fetal tissue is the journalistic equivalent of a diet pill: a “news” story designed not to satisfy, but to suppress, the reader’s appetite for information. Let’s start with the photo at the top, because although it is not part of the story, it sets the tone. It’s a shot of a woman, standing alone in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic, saying the Rosary. But wait; she couldn’t be alone, because the caption says she is a participant in an “anti-abortion rally.” So we know the photo was taken to catch...

By contrast, the CNN reporter just yesterday effused over the "political genius" of President Barack Obama using a press conference to criticize members of the Republican presidential field. On Tuesday morning's CNN Newsroom, as she set up a question for Henderson, host Carol Costello asserted that Republicans are trying to "out-Trump" each other...

    If you talk to the reporters who work for various big media companies, they insist that they have true editorial independence from the business side of their companies. They insist that the news coverage isn't designed to reflect the business interests of their owners. Of course, most people have always suspected this was bullshit -- and you could see evidence of this in things like the fact that the big TV networks refused to cover the SOPA protests. But -- until now -- there's never necessarily been a smoking gun with evidence of how such business interests influences the editorial...

Perry shot back, saying Trump didn’t know what he was talking about and that “Donald Trump does not represent the Republican Party.” But Perry’s responses were barely heard over Trump’s furor. Trump called Perry a dummy, said he should take an IQ test. He repeated again and again his charge that the former Texas governor did a “terrible” job securing the state’s border with Mexico. The cabal was shocked at Trump’s rhetoric. Who says these things...

The political media, of course, are flabbergasted as to how Trump could possibly be doing so well given that they consider him an un-serious joke of a candidate. I am not arguing here that Trump should be president, but in a battle of wits between Trump and the political media, Trump wins every time. And that’s exactly why he’s leading the race at the...

    since President Obama took office, the poverty rate among children has soared to 22 percent, with three million more children living in poor conditions, according to an authoritative new report released Tuesday. The 2015 "KIDS COUNT" report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation said that the percentage of children living in poverty jumped from 18 percent in 2008, the year Obama was elected, to 22 percent in 2013....

    Many years ago I interviewed for a reporting job covering government waste, fraud and mismanagement. The interview went well and my future employers mentioned that they’d had trouble keeping the position filled as many reporters had trouble coming up with story ideas. They wondered if that would be a problem. I thought they were joking, so I chuckled. But they were entirely serious. I thought of that when looking at media coverage of the Planned Parenthood scandal. The media seem to be really struggling to come up with any story ideas for how to cover this story.

  • Gloria Estefan, Pit Bull, other Cuban celebs quiet as Obama Bows Knee to Castro

    Lots of social and mainstream media attention is paid in the media (especially in Florida) when "luminaries" like Gloria Estefan and Pit Bull....their Cuban heritage makes them experts, apparently, on social and political matters.... A few months ago, the Estefan family hosted an Obama fund raiser in their home.....and Pit Bull recently was praised in the Miami media for openly endorsing the threat on Donald Trump's life made by a Mexican drug kingpin. So it sure is surprising that these publicity hounds...people who CLAIM to love freedom of expression and human rights have BEEN SO VERY SILENT regarding their hero...
  • Chattanooga Shooter Followed Al Qaeda Cleric Online in 2013 [FBI, Media still baffled on motive]

    07/21/2015 5:36:17 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 13 replies
    FBI agents have found evidence that Chattanooga shooter Mohammod Abdulazeez was following a radical American member of al Qaeda online in 2013, as well as pages of writing that showed the young man was suicidal and looking for a way to absolve what he considered were his sins, according to a representative of Abdulazeez's family. Video tapes of Anwar al-Awlaki, the high-profile American al Qaeda cleric and recruiter, have circulated on the internet and have been popular in jihadist circles long after al-Awlaki's death by American drone strike in September 2011. ....there is no evidence so far that Mohammod Abdulazeez,...

    Dan Rather is coming to your local movie theater. At least the story behind why he’s no longer at CBS is. In “Truth,” Robert Redford plays Rather. Cate Blanchett plays his CBS producer Mary Mapes. In 2004, Rather reported that President George W. Bush’s powerful father arranged to keep his son in the National Guard to prevent serving in Vietnam. The report caused such hoo-hah that a treasured 24-year anchorman lost his job. Dan: “I’ve read the script. It’s serious. People behind it do a good job. It’s two great actors. You couldn’t want for a better cast. Redford playing...

    There was a brief time this year when it almost seemed like the nation’s biggest newspapers, including the Gray Lady, were going to be giving Hillary Clinton the same level of required scrutiny which should apply to every candidate for elected office. It came when they actually covered the email server story and went into a fair amount of depth on it. Of course, it would have been embarrassing in the extreme to not do so, since everyone else on the planet was talking about it. But all good things must come to an end, as they say, and New...

    The celebration of Obama's capitulation to the dictators is in full swing when you watch the local media in Miami. Looks like the ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC stations all sent reporters have "journalists" up there singing the praises of Castro and Obama.
