  • Network pools refuse to cover Trump hotel tour

    Politico ^ | September 16, 2016 | Hadas Gold
    In a show of joint defiance, the major television networks collectively voted to pull a camera and erase video of Donald Trump giving a tour of his hotel, a protest of the campaign preventing any editorial presence on the tour. According to members of the traveling press pool, after it was made clear that only still photographers and video cameras would be allowed on the pool, the Washington bureau chiefs of the various television networks convened an emergency conference call and agreed to pull the network camera and erase the footage of the tour. "The pool rules state any event...

    MATT LAUER, "TODAY" SHOW: I went back and read from your book, The Art of The Deal. You wrote this: 'I play to people's fantasies. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration and a very effective form of promotion.' Would it be fair to say that that describes your campaign to date?

    Caught playing politics with tragedy, what's next for the Obama administration and GOP investigators?“These changes don’t resolve all of my issues or those of my building’s leadership.” With that sentence, one in a series of emails and draft “talking points” leaked to Jonathan Karl of ABC News, the Obama administration was caught playing politics with Benghazi. Summaries of White House and State Department emails -- some of which were first published by Stephen F. Hayes of the Weekly Standard -- also contradict the White House version of events that led to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice misleading the public about the cause...

    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,...

    It’s a twist of irony: The Russian news website Pravda has published an accusation that the American media is “tame,” afraid to publish news and is “deliberately hiding the evidence published on the internet about [President Obama's] defrauding of the American public and the deliberate evisceration of the Constitution of the United States.” In a March 7 Pravda column, “Arizona sheriff finds Obama presidential qualifications forged,” Dianna Cotter, a senior at American Military University, blasts America’s mainstream media for their virtual silence about Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s six-month investigation into the controversy surrounding Obama’s birth certificate and his...

    Very interesting contrast between the way Politico treated accusations by Larry Sinclaire against Obama in 2008 verses posting anonymous accusations against Herman Cain today. Back then, they refused to even repeat the accusations. It seems to me that Larry Sinclaire and Ms. Bialek have about the same level of credibility. Shouldn't the same journalistic standards apply?

    The NBC and ABC morning shows on Friday indicated a growing impatience with not knowing Sarah Palin's presidential plans. NBC's Chuck Todd declared of the Labor Day holiday, "I think one thing about Sarah Palin is that this is her last weekend to cry wolf, essentially." Over on Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos talked to reporter John Berman and insisted, "But, as you point out, the longer she stays out [of the 2012 race], actually, the less relevant she becomes." The ex-Alaska governor will be visiting New Hampshire and Iowa over the long weekend. Berman expressed bewilderment about Palin's intentions,...

    The deep, unbridgeable spiritual and ideological divide in our country has been on glaring display even more than usual since last Saturday’s horrific, murderous attack in Tucson by an evil young man—yes, Virginia, evil people do exist. Predictably, the lying Left went into full attack mode before the dead and wounded were scarcely off the sidewalk. Instead of waiting to learn the name of the shooter, they barreled ahead determined to fix the blame for the shooting on conservatives. We’re not going to let the Left get away with it this time. There is one—and only one—person to blame for...

    LONDON – Activists and relatives of those killed in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing raised new questions Sunday about the medical advice that led to the release on compassionate grounds of the only man ever convicted for the deaths. Doctors claimed Abdel Baset al-Megrahi had only three months to live when he was freed from a Scottish jail last August and allowed to return home to Libya. But one year later, Al-Megrahi, who is being treated for prostate cancer, is still alive.

    In the first voter referendum on ObamaCare, Missourians on Tuesday overwhelmingly (by 71 to 29 percent) backed Proposition C which called upon the state to enact a statute to “deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance,” an outcome the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described as “rebuking President Barack Obama's administration.” On Wednesday night, however, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts skipped the bad news for President Obama – yet all found time to celebrate his 49th birthday. (The Missouri repudiation of a central tenet of ObamaCare came a day after another setback...

    Business Insider ^ | 07/21/2010 | Joe Weisenthal
    Remember when the bailout was going to cost $700 million? Yeah, not so much. Reuters: Increased housing commitments swelled U.S. taxpayers' total support for the financial system by $700 billion in the past year to around $3.7 trillion, a government watchdog said on Wednesday. The Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program said the increase was due largely to the government's pledges to supply capital to Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB) and Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) and to guarantee more mortgages to the support the housing market. Of course, Fannie and Freddie went completely untouched in financial reform.

But it turns out that much of what the moguls talked about, while they boozed and golfed and white water rafted and stuffed their faces during the all-expeneses-paid retreat, was President Obama and his attitude toward the business community, according to The Daily Beast's Peter Lauria, who spent the week collecting on- and off-the-record...

    How do you win the argument and convince people to elect conservatives again after the movement was on the ropes following the 2008 presidential election? When this blogger wrote the Fight for the Right page and Rebuilding the Republican Party, the answer was simple: convince them that the media lies. Once they realize the media lied to them, they will become angry and realize that we were right all along. You'll never shove your candidate or your ideology down someone's throat because they will always protect their ego - unless they find out that they can blame someone else for...

    POLITICO’s Andy Barr reported earlier that Meg Stapleton, spokesperson and top adviser to Sarah Palin resigned to spend more time with family. Now CNN’s Peter Hamby follows up on the news and writes how not only did McCain campaign staffers and Palin insiders grumble about Stapleton’s handling of Palin, but also journalists. Members of the political press corps have also long been frustrated with Stapleton, who was the primary conduit between Palin and members of the media since the end of the 2008 presidential race, but rarely responded to phone calls or e-mails. When Stapleton did, they were often terse...

    Scott Brown says he's a different kind of Republican, a centrist willing to work with Senate Democrats to fix health care and the ailing economy. But his independent bent is likely to be sorely tested in a bitterly divided Senate where party loyalty is often at a premium. "If he wants to have a future in Massachusetts politics, Brown has to live up to being a New England Republican - fiscally conservative, socially moderate, independent-minded," said Dante Scala, a University of New Hampshire political science professor. "Is Obama going to try to craft some room for himself in the center?"...

    People in Massachusetts are understandably frustrated. Next week's special election comes in the midst of a too-long Senate debate on health care, showcasing much of what is offensive about the rules of the Senate. The fact that a final bill hasn't even emerged has left many people ready to toss away the whole thing. Stir in the anxiety that comes with a still-faltering economy, and voters are angry.

    C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb accused President Obama of using his network as a "political football" during the presidential campaign, citing the president's broken pledge to televise health care reform negotiations on the nonpartisan channel which is devoted to covering Washington. Lamb, speaking on liberal host Bill Press' radio show Wednesday, said Obama had "no right" to assume C-SPAN would cover the talks in the first place. And while he said his network would naturally want to cover the negotiations in full anyway, Lamb expressed disappointment that the White House has not lived up to that commitment. He said the "only...

    Since ACORN’s crass corruption came into sharp focus a few weeks ago, Andrew Breitbart has not only been part and parcel of cracking ACORN’s nuts, but he has also been pointing out the ludicrous lack of reporting on ACORN’s asininities by what used to be the mainstream media. Breitbart, via the ACORN controversy, has shown the “mainstream” to be everything but conventional and more akin to an irrelevant, unwatched drip of ideological flotsam that’s entirely in the septic tank for the lunatic left. The Daily Show’s John Stewart—hardly a right-winger—also pointed out this willful ACORN media blindness this past month,...

    I will clearly appeal this mockery of justice. Judge Land was totally dishonest and misstated and misrepresented 99% of what was written in the pleadings and what transpired during the hearings. He broke and violated each and every rule in the book: his own local rules, clear precedents, rule of law and Constitution in order to appease this Kenyan dictator and his regime. Will the Circuit Court of Appeals be less corrupt, remains to be seen. We have seen total dereliction of duties by so many in the Federal government, nothing will surprise me.

    Intensity matters in politics and, at times, is more important than approval. It may be, and the ratings certainly suggested this was the case, that the television viewing public preferred Jay Leno to David Letterman when choosing which late-night talk show to watch. From a political standpoint, however, it would do a candidate for elective office little good at the polls to announce he was a "Leno person" or to denounce Letterman. Preference in late-night talk show hosts is simply not an issue on which people vote. On the other hand there are issues which, while they matter little to...
