  • When will Barack Obama call Melissa Coon? [her white son was set on fire by blacks] [media bias]

    We all know how much Barack Obama likes calling people up to apologize or feign empathy with them after some tragedy. He called Sandra Fluke after the big, bad Rush Limbaugh called her mean names on his nationally syndicated radio show. Obama then called the family of Trayvon Martin this past week, several weeks after the young 17-year old African-American youth was shot and killed by a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Of course, Zimmerman claims he was being attacked and an eyewitness apparently is verifying that story. Oddly enough, about the same time of the Trayvon Martin...

    Nothing beats video of a presidential candidate saying “Stop lying!” “You don’t care at all about the truth” and “It’s bull—-” to a reporter. So we offer this video of GOP prez candidate Rick Santorum going red-faced on New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny not purely as SEO chum, but for what it shows. First, this is a no-lose for Santorum. His prime audience of GOP primary voters eats up media-bashing…especially when the media-bashed is The New York Times. . . .

    There were few new protests, but the weekend still brought renewed attention to the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, as advocates for the shooter spoke up and I went on CNN to ask questions about media coverage. Appearing on CNN's Reliable Sources show Sunday, I joined host Howie Kurtz in asking about the propriety of allowing Rev. Al Sharpton to serve as host of his MSNBC show from the same Sanford, Fla. rally where he was also serving as lead activist -- joining the family in meeting with the Justice Department. Sharpton, along with many other protesters, are demanding...

    Less than two weeks after his suspension for previous intemperate tweets was lifted, CNN's Roland Martin was engaging in personally insulting "mis-tweetment" again this afternoon with PJ Media's David Steinberg. In a series of tweets at around 5 p.m. tonight seen after the jump, Steinberg criticized Martin for spending so much time on the press's Trayvon Martin obsession -- where one person tragically died -- while ignoring the impact and meaning of the documents leaked by an unnamed Department of Justice official relating to the Fast and Furious "gunwalking" scandal -- as a result of which "at least 300 Mexicans,...

    Oh no, whatever can we do? It wasn’t three neo-Nazis who had been expelled from the army for their extremist politics who killed people in France; it was actually yet another Muslim terrorist, one who wanted to kill people, especially Jewish children, in the name of his religion of peace. This is a problem for the consensus media, because they were determined to blame the slaughter on anyone other than Muslims. But no, the truth came out. The man who filmed himself shooting little children to death, and who grabbed a child by the hair as she ran, held a...

    SANFORD, Fla. — The Rev. Al Sharpton, an MSNBC host and liberal political figure, riled up a mostly-black Sanford, Fla., crowd on Thursday night in the wake of the killing of 17-year-old student Trayvon Martin. “Some people said to me in the media — ‘Let me get this straight,’ they said. ‘Reverend, it seems like there’s a lot of people who are angry — are you afraid of violence?’” Sharpton preached to the central Floridian crowd. “I said, ‘No. I’m afraid of the violence you already had.’” “Violence is killing Tray Martin,” Sharpton continued. “Don’t act like we are the...

    TALLAHASSEE — State Sen. Gary Siplin and a coalition of other black lawmakers are asking Gov. Rick Scott to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate last month's shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a neighborhood watch volunteer near Orlando. Trayvon Martin, 17, who was black, was killed Feb. 26 by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old white Hispanic, in a gated community in Sanford. Zimmerman, who has not been charged, has said he shot the high school student in self-defense. The shooting, now being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice and local authorities, has sparked an international furor with...

About 300 police, some in bullet-proof body armor, had earlier cordoned off an area surrounding a four-storey house in a leafy suburb of the city of Toulouse where the 24-year-old Muslim man, identified as Mohamed Merah, was holed up on the ground floor. Merah had been arrested for bomb making in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar in 2007 but escaped months later in a Taliban prison break, the...

Increasingly pessimistic views of Obama’s performance on the economy — and on the federal budget deficit — come despite a steadily brightening employment picture and other signs of economic improvement, and they highlight the political sensitivity of rising gas prices. The potential political con­sequences are clear, with the ­rising public disapproval reversing some of the...

    What a shock -- labor unions paying one of their biggest cheerleaders in the media. Perhaps Ed Schultz could explain what he does for unions to warrant such largesse. I don't recall hearing anything along these lines on his radio program or MSNBC show. (graphic after page break) In fiscal 2011, Schultz received $190,000 from the Communications Workers of America for what the U.S. Department of Labor categorized as "representational activities." For swag like that, you'd think Schultz could at least get it right about the CWA name. Instead, he invariably refers to it as the "Communication"
  • Halperin: Romney Has Horrible Relationship With Media, But 'It's Not A Partisan Thing'

    Mark Halperin says Mitt Romney's campaign has the worst relationship with the media of any major candidate he's covered. But, according to the man from Time, it has nothing to do with the fact that Romney is the front-runner to take on the MSM's Chosen One. No, Halperin assures us, "it's not a partisan thing." The fault lies entirely with the Romney campaign itself, which reportedly has kept the press at arm's length. Halperin's comments came in the context of a Morning Joe segment today in which Mike Allen discussed a Politico item on a media "charm offensive" that the...
  • White House Attack Dog Targets Limbaugh Sponsors

    03/08/2012 6:26:41 PM PST · by Kaslin · 25 replies
    Censorship: The pressure on Rush Limbaugh's advertisers is from a group that meets regularly with the White House and runs an Obama Super-PAC funded by unions. The group Media Matters acts like a lobbyist but is not registered as one. It operates in the shadows, outside congressional oversight and unaccountable to voters. This makes its collusion with the White House in the heat of a presidential race a serious matter worthy of investigation. Targeting Limbaugh, a staunch Republican, is no coincidence. If the Obama campaign can silence him, it can knock out the party's most powerful voice for firing up...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: According to Gallup, the unemployment rate in February: 9.1%. We're gonna get the federal unemployment number here pretty soon, and we will hear what the Obama regime is claiming the new unemployment number is. Now, unemployment compensation requests or applications went up by about 8,000. Jobless claims jumped 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 362,000 in the week ending March the 3rd. This is according to the Labor Department. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires had forecast that claims would rise by 2,000. So this was unexpected. Claims rose by 8,000. That's the government. Gallup says that their...

    As a card-carrying member of the media elite, it’s hard for me to say something nice about Newt Gingrich. But here it is: He doesn’t wear blue jeans in public. [SNIP of SNARK due to excerpt limit] For many Republican primary voters, the only thing worse than a regular elite is an intellectual elite or a media elite or especially a liberal intellectual media elite. [SNIP] More to the point, does the fact that a guy reads books and deals in ideas disqualify him? For many Americans, it does. Anti-intellectualism has been a consistent theme throughout American history. The political...

    Boycott ABC. Please read this story below and send it to all your Christian friends and family. We need to ban together and get this disgusting blasphemous TV show off the air. Some one should inform the liberal secular progressive Christ-haters at ABC that… OUR GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED. Hey… I wonder what would happen if these liberal secular progressive Christ-haters at ABC made a primetime tv show mocking Muhammad and offending Muslim women? Hmmm. No way. They wouldn’t dare do that, they just attack, mock and defile Christians and our Holy faith. No one else’s. Why? Weird. I...

    On February 29, The Washington Post created a scandal for the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington by dramatizing the denial of communion to lesbian activist Barbara Johnson at her mother’s funeral. Reporter Michelle Boorstein painted an emotional picture of a Catholic daughter being publicly shamed by a priest at her lowest moment. But new details keep ruining the Post’s report. Thomas Peters at Catholic Vote today reveals that Johnson has publicly declared she is a Buddhist, and not a Catholic! The Post is going to need to fill the Corrections box.

    CNN ^ | March 7, 2012
    In a memo to reporters, Romney Political Director Rich Beeson laid out his camp's view that neither Santorum nor any of the other candidates in the race has any chance of securing enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination...... "Super Tuesday dramatically reduced the likelihood that any of Governor Romney's opponents can obtain the Republican nomination," Beeson wrote. "As Governor Romney's opponents attempt to ignore the basic principles of math, the only person's odds of winning they are increasing are President Obama's." Beeson cited Romney's current lead in delegates and a tough upcoming primary and caucus calendar as examples of...

    Bad Newt - Used 30 Minutes of Megan Kelly’s On-air Time To Discuss his GA win and the GOP Primary. Consensus of the Fox panel: “Good grief!! Newt took 30 minutes to make his points!!!” (30 minutes of not talking about Mitt’s Super Tuesday). And what was up with Fox News not running the GA vote totals on the ticker strip? Sarah Palin disclosed to Neil Cavuto that she voted for “the cheerful one.” (Newt) Newt Gingrich picked up 69 additional delegates. His total to date 102 delegates. (By my count, he had 33 going into Super Tuesday and picked...

    The elite national media that is trying to destroy Rush Limbaugh over his calling liberal activist Sandra Fluke a 'slut' and 'prostitute' is set to host a comic who attacked Sarah Palin (and her son Trig) in vile terms.The Radio and Television Correspondents Association (RTCA)announced in December that its 68th Annual Radio & TV Congressional Correspondents' Dinner to be held June 8, 2012, at the Walter E.
