    "Sean, I'd like to ask you about two different topics but could you help us all by calling on Peter right now?" Peter Baker is the White House reporter for the New York Times. Spicer declined Simendinger's request. "No, I'm gonna— I understand," Spicer said. "I actually call the questions. Alexis, if you don't want to [ask] your question, I can call on somebody else." "Could you call on the New York Times, please?" Simendinger said. But Spicer moved on to another reporter.
  • ABC Hails ‘Momentous Day’ for Hillary with No Indictment; The ‘Cloud Is Lifted’ for Her, Obama

    In the moments following FBI Director James Comey’s announcement on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges for her private e-mail servers scandal, the cast assembled by ABC News hailed the “extraordinary decision” as “a momentous day” signaling that “a cloud is lifted” for Clinton to continue on with the presidential race and President Obama to give his own thoughts on the matter. Senior Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas dubbed Comey’s recommendation an “extraordinary decision” and blistering for Clinton but emphasized the early spin that “they looked at precedent and found no case like it where prosecutors would have...
  • Watch Marilyn Mosby’s Long-Forgotten Judge Judy Appearance (Video)

    A video has recently surfaced of Marilyn Mosby, the district attorney responsible for charging six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, making an appearance on the popular arbitration court series “Judge Judy” more than a decade ago. The video dates back to the early 2000s, in the show’s fifth season, when Mosby was in college and still going by her maiden name, Marilyn James. Mosby was on the program with a rather bizarre case: She was suing business owner Ryan Johnson for damages to the apartment she lived in while at college.
  • Dead dog receives voter registration form; MSM blames ‘voter ID laws’

    Call it a variation on a theme: Dogs have been registered to vote, and so have dead people—so why not a dead dog? Roanoke, Va., NBC affiliate WSLS reports that Tim Morris, a resident of the town of Goodview, was surprised when he opened a recent piece of mail and found it contained voter registration forms for “Mo” (h/t Matt Drudge). Morris claims that he laughed, initially thinking it was all a prank. That is because Mo was the family’s nickname for their poodle, Mozart, who has been dead for two years.
  • Gingrich scores with voters by socking 'Big Media'

    COLUMBIA, S.C. - Resentment lurks near the surface of the conservative political consciousness. Many voters believe (not always without cause) that elite, hipster liberals in academia and the coastal Big Media are sneering at them, their lives, and their beliefs. They see themselves presented as unsophisticated, bigoted, and quite possibly stupid. So Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was tapping into a powerful psychological current when he attacked the news media Thursday at the start of a CNN debate, responding to an ABC News interview with his ex-wife Marianne, in which she said he had demanded an "open marriage" so he...
  • CNN's Randi Kaye on Ed Schultz's Rant: 'There Are Mixed Interpretations' of the Term 'Slut'

    05/26/2011 3:51:03 PM PDT · by RatherBiased.com · 57 replies
    Attempting to offer a defense of Ed Schultz, CNN's Randi Kaye told guest Howard Kurtz Thursday that "there are mixed interpretations" of the term "slut," which Schultz called conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham Thursday. Kaye also referred to Laura Ingraham's response to Schultz as "biting," proving that she possibly was harder on Ingraham than on tyrant Sadaam Hussein back in 2006. "Yeah, but you know when you hear the word 'slut' – I mean I hate to even say it on our air, to be honest with you – but there are mixed interpretations about the word," Kaye told...

    President Bush and his team pride themselves in a lot of things; not the least of which is communications. But the cold, hard facts would make the Bush team blush rather than beam with pride, we suspect. Jim Hoagland of the Washington Post this week wrote about, “Bush's subdued public demeanor in discussing Iraq.” ....there are many examples of the White House and the Bush Administration “misunderspinning” when the facts are relatively clear. The White House has had problems communicating beyond those one might normally anticipate in war. “The great irony of this administration is that its opponents credit it...

    On Saturday, millions of Iraqis walked with determination to the polls to vote for a new constitution. The turnout was high. The violence was down dramatically from the triumphant elections of January. But the network found all this boring. On the night before the historic vote, ABC led with bird-flu panic. CBS imagined Karl Rove in a prison jumpsuit. NBC hyped inflation. They say that news is a man-bites-dog story. In the Middle East, how common is a constitutional referendum? Have they had one in Egypt? Saudi Arabia? Syria? Jordan? Until the last few years, the phrase "Arab constitutional democracy"...

    Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's kleptocrat strongman, destroyed a mosque the other day. It was in Hatcliffe Extension, a shantytown on the edge of Harare, razed by the "police." Mr. Mugabe is an equal-opportunity razer: He also bulldozed a Catholic-run Aids center. The government destroyed the town to drive the locals into the countryside to live on land stolen from white farmers. Quite how that's meant to benefit any of those involved or the broader needs of Zimbabwe is beyond me, but then I'm no expert in Afro-Marxist economic theory.

    Israeli officials have expressed dismay that BBC reporter Orla Guerin, who has come under sharp attack for what some perceive as an anti-Israeli bias in her coverage, will receive an MBE honor from the British government for "outstanding service to broadcasting." Diaspora Affairs Minister Natan Sharansky, who last year wrote a formal letter of complaint to the BBC over Guerin's coverage, said it is a pity that the absence of anti-Semitism was not a criterion for the award. If it were, he said, Guerin would not be receiving the honor. The MBE stands for Member of the British Empire, one...

    ABC News correspondent Carole Simpson, who through 2003 served as the anchor of World News Tonight on Sunday and who now travels the country for ABC News to talk to high schoolers about how to consume news, lashed out at how the election results reflect the triumph of the "stupid" and how the red/blue maps match the slave versus free states. She opined at a National Press Club forum shown live Monday night on C-SPAN: "I look at the election, and I'm going, 'Well, of course our kids are not bright about these things because their parents aren't.'" She also...

    Urge Bill O’Reilly to Put His Money Where his Mouth is on Media Bias   Whatever one thinks of O’Reilly personally, one must admit that he does not shirk when it comes to criticizing/condemning media bias.  O’Reilly has been one of the most outspoken critics of the blatant, disgusting bias coming from the New York Times and L.A. Times.    Further, O’Reilly is also known for initiating effective boycotts – recall the boycott of a certain company that solicited the endorsement of a certain rapper.    So, I ask you all, please to write a simple, “pithy” email to...

    Major barf alert! Less is Moore in subdued, effective '9/11' May 18, 2004 BY ROGER EBERT FILM CRITIC CANNES, France -- Michael Moore the muckraking wiseass has been replaced by a more subdued version in "Fahrenheit 9/11," his new documentary questioning the anti-terrorism credentials of the Bush regime. In the Moore version, President Bush, his father and members of their circle have received $1.5 billion from Saudi Arabia over the years, attacked Iraq to draw attention from their Saudi friends, and have lost the hearts and minds of many of the U.S. servicemen in the war. The film premiered Monday...

    NEW YORK, March 11, 2004 - Mainstream news organizations may "filter" the news, as President George W. Bush claimed late last year, but not to omit good stories from their Iraq coverage, but to broadcast more negative news about the president himself, according to a report released today by MediaChannel.org and Media Tenor. The report reveals a strong negative cast to ABC, CBS and NBC news coverage of the president thus far in 2004. Meanwhile, Senator John Kerry, Bush's certain opponent for November, has received more positive coverage by the same three networks. According to data compiled for MediaChannel.org by...

    On September 4, 2000, George W. Bush, unaware that a microphone was catching his comments, confided his opinion of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer to Dick Cheney. The vulgarity Bush employed was picked up by the microphones, and was instantly a front page story in the campaign. The Boston Globe, for example, ran a page one story the next day by Anne E. Kornblut and Glenn Johnson that began: "George W. Bush yesterday urged voters to put 'plain-spoken Americans' in the White House, intending to contrast himself with Vice President Al Gore. Instead, his frankness created an embarrassment, after...
