  • 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...
  • Rick Santorum explodes on reporter for “bull—” and “lying”

    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,...

    Coren's Comment ^ | March 21st, 2012 | Michael Coren
    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...

    I realize there are many here who would agree with this depiction, as well as many who would not.Regardless, I would hope that no one would accept or condone such an example of journalistic irresponsibility, to use such a term before the shooter has been arrested, charged or convicted.I am not sure why I am writing this here, perhaps it is an opus of a kind (a sadly weak one, to be sure), but this has scared me. I will file a complaint with the FCC, for whatever good that will do, but this, along the discussion of this case...

    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...

    TORONTO – Some media ethics experts are now questioning scrubbing the story about President Obama’s eldest daughter, Malia Obama, vacationing in Mexico. The White House’s Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, admitted to asking media not to report on the vacation. The request prompted some websites (including the Huffington Post) on Tuesday to remove reports about the trip, according to American reports. “From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest....

    A gunman suspected of killing seven people in the name of al-Qaeda, including three children at a Jewish school, has been arrested by police after an hours-long siege in southwestern France. 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...

    Accuracy in Media ^ | March 19, 2012 | Gadi Adelman
    Writing articles on terrorism in a post 9/11 world becomes more difficult each day. It’s certainly not due to the lack of terror or terror arrests; that, unfortunately, is never ending. Since 9/11 there have been 18,598 deadly terror attacks all in the name of Islam. The writing on the subject of terror for myself and others has become a ‘cat and mouse game’ with the media and the current administration. I cannot even count the amount of times arrests have been made in a terror plot here in the U.S. and there is absolutely no further information available.When I...

    After it was reported Monday that Malia Obama was going to Mexico for spring break with 25 Secret Service agents, people began to notice that such reports were being scrubbed from the Internet. Politico's Dylan Byers reported Tuesday this was done at the request of the White House: The AFP page for the story now links to a story titled "Senegal music star Youssou Ndour hits campaign trail," as does the Yahoo page. The Huffington Post page now links directly back to the Huffington Post homepage. The Daily Mail, Telegraph, and Australian stories now lead to 404 error pages,...

    Let's stipulate up front that it might well have been an innocent mistake. Even so, until explained, it was shocking to say the least. On today's Morning Joe, as Mika Brzezinski read a David Brooks op-ed about the shooting of civilians in Afghanistan in which he wrote of "monstrous acts that shock the soul and sear the brain," suddenly the screen cut--for an extended period--to three different photos of . . . Republican Paul Ryan. Even Joe Scarborough couldn't resist joking about the incident revealing the show's liberal bias. As it turns out, an op-ed by Ryan was up next,...
