    On this somber anniversary the NY Times has the entire above the fold section of the front page devoted to Barack Obama. Among them is the expected sycophantic plug from Gail Collins: "A Man with a Plan" But then we come to a article that purports to be serious but either was written by a 12 year old or someone for whom history began on January 21, 2009- Mark Landler. He opens: President Obama on Wednesday authorized a major expansion of the military campaign against rampaging Sunni militants in the Middle East, including American airstrikes in Syria and the deployment...

    Federal Election Commission Chairman Lee E. Goodman warned that the federal governmentincluding some officials in his officemay soon move to clamp down on conservative media. I think that there are impulses in the government every day to second guess and look into the editorial decisions of conservative publishers, Goodman told Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner on Wednesday. At threat, in Goodmans estimation, is the medias exemption from federal election laws governing political organizations like PACs. Many in government want to curtail the ability of all news outlets to endorse and promote candidates and issues without any limits or disclosure...

    Since word broke on Thursday night that Chelsea Clinton will be having a baby, ABC has fixated over the news, devoting 12 minutes and 47 seconds of coverage to the arrival of America's new "royal" child. Yet, the same network totally ignored the latest delay of the Kyestone XL pipeline by the Obama administration (and the political ramifications that go with it). On Friday morning, ABC reporter Bianna Golodryga hyped, "Move over, Prince George, though. This morning, Americans have their own royal, or, rather, presidential baby, to look forward to." On Sunday, This Week avoided Keystone, yet the ABC program...

    Why we root for Chelsea Clinton was the latest from the Washington Posts new culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg. For those of us who were once curly-haired, awkward daughters, Chelsea Clintons arrival on the national stage at age 12 meant years of sympathetic wincing. The barbs directed her way landed on us by proxy, including Rush Limbaughs old family dog joke. Youngsters might not realize that almost everyone in politics treated Chelsea with deference to her parents throughout the Clinton presidency, which ended when she was 20. The weirdest part is how Rosenberg can complain about Clinton opponents mocking Chelsea instead...

Now there have always been tensions, there have always been calls from the White House under any administration I assume, when they dont like a particular story.

The editor then rattled off a laundry...

    The New York Times has published a new account of the deadly 9/11/12 terrorist attacks against two US compounds in Benghazi, Libya. Reporter David Kirkpatrick's sources, some of whom are anonymous, say there is little indication that international terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda were involved in the attack. Kirkpatrick's story also claims that the raids were not "meticulously planned," and were, in fact, touched off by an obscure YouTube video trailer that some say denigrated Islam. A snippet from the piece: Then, on Sept. 8, a popular Islamist preacher lit the fuse by screening a clip of the video on...

But how much effort did Kirkpatrick expend to uncover any...

    As President Obama wrapped up his conversation with Chris Matthews at American University, he took a swipe at the partisan media for dividing the country and making compromise more difficult. Obama said being the Commander-in-Chief for so long makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier, and compared himself to Sisyphus, rolling the boulder up the hill for eternity with little success. He spoke of how enthusiastic young people encourage him and give him confidence, only for the media to take that enthusiasm and use it to divide people. The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes

Only Bob Schieffer of CBS gave it serious consideration, and only after it was raised by Sen. John McCain. When the Benghazi issue did surface, other than on Fox, it was invariably brought up by Republican guests, and then deflected by the hosts, who largely ignored new stories this week that implicated the White House in the decision not to intervene to save the life of...

    No one told Mitt Romney that he would be the lone Republican taking part in a three way debate on Tuesday night but, not altogether unpredictably, thats the way it turned out. According to debate moderator and part-time participant Candy Crowley, it was instinct which forced her to intercede on Obamas behalf during the somewhat rancorous discussion of the Benghazi murder of Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans. When Romney stated quite correctly that it took the Obama Administration 14 days to call the Benghazi killings a terror attack, Obama protested and Crowley immediately came to his rescue, saying to...

    Mitt Romney was right. Barack Obama was wrong. And now, after journo-tool/moderator Candy Crowley jumped to Obamas aid in front of millions of viewers, CNN is admitting that her fact-check was not kinda, sorta, no completely cut and dry factual. READ: CNN walks back false act of terror fact check. Hows that crow tasting, lapdogs?

    A reminder about the last plant-infested, CNN-run town hall debate By Michelle Malkin October 15, 2012 12:38 PM CNNs Candy Crowley will be moderating tomorrow nights second presidential debate. It will be a 90-minute town hall forum at Hofstra University on Long Island, east of New York City. Both the Obama and Romney campaigns signed a memorandum of understanding about how the debate will be run. But Crowley is already making noises that she plans to circumvent the agreed-upon rules and take control: In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern...
  • How the BBC Censored Churchills Speeches Against Appeasement

    This is an important history lesson for anyone who thinks that state-owned media can in any way be informative or that politically correct censorship began recently. He was finally invited to give a talk in 1934 and used this opportunity to warn of the danger of ignoring German rearmament. That broadcast demonstrated the impact Churchill could have had in warning the country against appeasement. It was not to be. This was his last radio appearance on the subject before the outbreak of war.Churchill did complain to a young BBC producer who visited him on the day after Chamberlain returned...
  • The Credibility Point Is a Dam About To Burst?

    Just as Gallup finally began polling likely voters last week, the media is rapidly approaching the point of no return. That will be the time when they absolutely, positively have to start reporting what is really going on or fully lose all of their credibility. Piers Morgans pseudo-endorsement of Mitt Romney is one example of this happening...

    Media figures get reprimanded, suspended, or even fired when caught plagiarizing the work of others. But politicians who get caught sometimes get promotions. A case in point is former Senator and failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, now the nations vice-president and one heartbeat away from the Oval Office. Known for making humorous and outrageous gaffes and statements, Bidens history of plagiarism goes back to the time when he ran for president in 1988. Biden had delivered, without attribution, passages from a speech by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock. Political scientist Larry Sabato has noted that this led to revelations...

    Patrick Caddell Mainstream media is threatening our country's future I think were at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy or not. You know, when I first started in politics and for a long time before that everyone on both sides, Democrats and Republicans, despised the press commonly, because they were SOBs to everybody. Which is exactly what they should be. They were unrelenting. Whatever the biases were, they were essentially equal-opportunity people. That...

    Accuracy in Media ^ | September 27, 2012 | Pat Caddell
    Weve had nine day of lies over what happened because they cant dare say its a terrorist attack, and the press wont push this, said Caddell. Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers. Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they...
