  • You stay classy, you canceled MSNBC hosts [One of them used an expletive to sign off]

    American Thinker ^ | 08/01/2015 | Rick Moran
    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...
  • Abandonment of Standard Journalistic Practices': Hillary Campaign Blasts NYT in Letter

    Mediaite.com ^ | 7/30/15 | Josh Feldman
    Hillary Clintons campaign sent a letter to The New York Times lambasting them for their recent coverage of Clintons 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 Clintons 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 arent 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 theyre 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...

    For Jon Stewart, this certainly isnt the high note he wanted to go out on. The guy who prides himself on speaking truth to power, as the anti-establishment, take-to-both-sides-hero for millennials everywhere reduced to a stenographer for a sitting president so thin-skinned about any and all criticism that he needs to dictate his own comedy. As originally reported in Politico by Darren Samuelson, the outgoing Daily Show host met with President Barack Obama twice in the past four years but failed to let anyone know about it. It was only then that Stewart who loves to play the Im...

    Americas anchors have spoken: the shooting of one lion vastly outweighs the trafficking of baby parts by a taxpayer-funded abortion giant. In other words, the broadcast news shows spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks. The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthoods practice of harvesting aborted baby parts -- censored it at Planned Parenthoods urging. But the news shows did find more than 14 minutes for a more...

NBC's Meet the Press this weekend will host Pat Buchanan, a homophobic and racist commentator.

    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...

    The Des Moines Register says Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has denied press credentials to its reporters after the newspaper published an editorial calling on the billionaire businessman to end his campaign. The Register says its reporters were denied credentials to a Trump campaign event in Oskaloosa, Iowa, on Saturday.

In the editorial, published Tuesday, the newspaper called Trump a feckless blowhard who is unfit to hold office.

The conventional wisdom demands that Republicans devote themselves to denouncing Trump, but candidates are foolish to do this unless it serves some other purpose. Jeb has criticized him repeatedly, even after he said he was done with it. I dont know why he really needs to get drawn into a war of words with Trump, but at least this accords with Jebs orientation toward...

    Frank Bruni, the spent New York Times op-ed columnist, doesn't care for GOP presidential candidate Scott Walker. That's his prerogative, of course, and it's a lock that he'll furrow his brow, like so many other liberals, and vote for Hillary Clinton in next year's election. (I'm discounting the euphoric "boom" for Bernie Sanders that's jazzing up "progressives" and amusing journalists this summer.) And there's no reason to expect that Bruni would write much positive about Walker: the Wisconsin governor is anti-union, anti-Obamacare, makes pitches to both mainstream and socially conservative Republicans and has a "newfound affection for ethanol" now that...

    Today President Obama met the White House press corps at length to defend his Iran nuclear deal.

But first, this observation: if any of the reporters present had read the agreement, which is only 159 pages long, it was not apparent. Maybe reporters are not accustomed to reading legal documents; maybe they are too lazy to try; maybe they have read and understood...

It was a situation where the media was so compliant the questioners were hand-picked by the White House beforehand, the president filibustered throughout, and Obama ended the event by asking himself the questions he wanted to answer. Only Major Garrett of CBS News asked a truly tough question, a question that was obviously framed in a way to cut through the presidents rigorously-rehearsed talking points. For daring to question the Lightbringer in the same way the media questioned President George W. Bush for...

If those are included, Islamists are far more dangerous than white Americans.

It was "remarkably good" and "notably free of a direct anti-gun harangue," Stuever wrote, but he was still depressed that HBO was only preaching to the liberal choir ("people already horrified by gun violence and gun culture") and the film "won't ever be seen by those who most need to see it."

    Most curators hope to get glowing reviews and popular acclaim when they mount an exhibit. Michael Kamber, on the other hand, is expecting some blowback for his latest show, Altered Images: 150 Years of Posed and Manipulated Documentary Photography, which opens this weekend at the Bronx Documentary Center. And hes perfectly O.K. with that. I think there will be some unhappy people, said Mr. Kamber, a photojournalist and founder of the center. Thats good. If people would stop faking photos, then they wouldnt have to be worried about being called out. The exhibit, a selection of well-known images that have...

    It took less than two days for the press to take a story about a white South Carolina man who shot and killed nine black churchgoers, and turn it into a story about the Confederate battle flag flying outside South Carolina's state house. For media, the flag as a supposedly influential symbol of racial oppression and hate represented an issue that required immediate attention and hours of coverage. By Friday, the press' focus on the flag was intense.

    Last weeks cover story in The Times Magazine, Scott Walker and the Fate of the Union, drew hundreds of reader comments and some mail to the Public Editors office. Two of the emails presented questions that I decided to pose to the magazines editor, Jake Silverstein. [SNIP] Mr. Silversteins response: Thanks for your question. Its a perfectly reasonable one. To me, the answer lies in the distinction between a magazine story and a story produced by the newsroom for the daily paper. As you note, an article in the magazine is a feature and doesnt have exactly the same...

    The New York Times ran an article this weekend profiling and quoting many children of gay and lesbian parents under the headline “What Could Gay Marriage Mean for the Kids?”Noticeably absent were any children who, while loving their two moms or two dads, yearned for both a mom and dad.In my new book, “The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom,” I devote a chapter to highlighting the stories of children of gays and lesbians who have spoken out about how redefining marriage has social costs. Their basic story is the same: Same-sex marriage denies children like them a relationship with...

    NBC is planning to announce on Thursday that Brian Williams will not return to his position as the anchor of its Nightly News show, four months after the network suspended him for exaggerating his role in a helicopter incident in Iraq, according to two people briefed on the discussions. Mr. Williams is expected to move to a new role primarily at the cable news network MSNBC, probably in a breaking-news capacity in the beginning, according to one of the people. Lester Holt, who has been filling in for Mr. Williams as anchor, will take on the position permanently, one...

    In addition to unleashing no-talents with names like Kardashian and The Situation on society, reality television has long been mocked for being fake. So its only fitting that the genre dominating so many cable networks these days would embrace the current fraud sweeping the nation former head of the NAACP Spokane chapter Rachel Dolezal. RadarOnline reports Dolezal didnt just fly to New York for her Today interview, shes also taking meetings for two proposed reality shows shes been offered. Exactly which production companies and which networks might be interested is unknown at this time, but considering the publicity shes...

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry shared her thoughts about the Rachel Dolezal story with one of her guests. Perry said: But is it possible that she might actually be black? The best way that I know how to describe this and I want to be very careful here. Because I dont want to say its equivalent to the transgender experience. But there is a useful language in trans and cis, which is to just to say some of us are born cis-gendered, some of us are born trans-gendered. But I wonder can it be that one would be cis-black...

    New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A cartonof milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015. The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, "It's June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99." (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, $3.39.) Another clip featured this prediction...
