  • Did Scarborough Just Call Maddow 'Intellectually Weak' and 'Afraid'?

    Looks like it's not just in Iraq where civil war is breaking out. Seems that it could also be happening at MSNBC, with Iraq ironically being the flashpoint. Two nights ago, Rachel Maddow condemned TV shows that book original Iraq war hawks like Paul Bremer. Maddow specifically called out her very own MSNBC for having given Bremer air time. And just where had Bremer appeared on the Lean Forward network? Morning Joe. So you have to imagine that Joe Scarborough might well have had Maddow in mind when on today's show he said "I don't know why some people are...

    ... what will the new narrative from the MSM be? Before the first GOP primaries this year, we heard from the MSM the long-held narrative: A.) "There is a huge war within the GOP. The GOP needs to do something with these "extremists" (Tea Party)!" Then when Boehner and some others won their primaries, the MSM narrative quickly shifted (as in goal-posts): B.) "The GOP has absorbed the Tea Party!" Now with Eric Cantor losing to David Brat (and that was a huge loss), the MSM won't go back on their narrative, even though they logically would have to admit...

    On Friday evening, Rachel Maddow tore into several Republican lawmakers who skipped private briefings on the Bowe Bergdahl swap to hold press conferences or make TV appearances lamenting the lack of information on the administration’s actions. Maddow noted that on Wednesday, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) left a private Senate briefing on Bergdahl early to hold a press conference demanding more information. “I learned nothing in this briefing,” he told reporters.

    Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham responded to what he called an "anti-creationist rant" by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who criticized the $43 million in Kentucky tax incentives being given to his ministry's full-sized Noah's ark attraction. "Rachel Maddow just went on a long anti-creationist rant on MSNBC (for anyone who still happens to watch low-rated MSNBC) as she commented on the Creation Museum's new Allosaurus fossil (she showed photos of our new exhibit)--then she mocked our Ark Encounter project--actually spent quite a lot of time mocking and scoffing, and totally misrepresented how the construction of the Ark is...

    Watching the celebration at the NRA convention over the defeat of background checks was the most nauseating experience of the day. I am not a New York gun control liberal, either. I support a shotgun for home defense, a handgun for limited conceal/carry, and an assortment of hunting rifles to balance West Virginia's exploding deer population (as evidenced by hourly collisions with cars). So, I am hardly out of the mainstream. But, the gun safety debate is B.S.

    In a bizarre op-ed in The Charleston Gazette last week, journalism professor Christopher Swindell argued that the National Rifle Association “advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America.” Stirring words, to be sure, but Swindell was hardly done — not even close. He also said that the NRA is guilty of “treason” “worthy of the firing squad.” “To support the new NRA president’s agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason,” Swindell charged in his wacky essay. After briefly playing the race card and alluding to the Civil War,...

    MSNBC has screwed things up so badly with their viewers that the network now has its lowest ratings since October 2007. According to TVNewser: Compared to the same month last year, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -19% in A25-54 viewers in total day. In primetime, the network was down -10% and -26%, respectively. “Morning Joe” slipped to third among the cable news morning shows in April, delivering its lowest-rated month in total viewers since December 2009. All three of MSNBC’s primetime shows were down across the board compared to April 2013: “All In with Chris Hayes” was...

    The vast arid wasteland known as liberal radio is becoming even more barren. Loose-cannon lefty Randi Rhodes is pulling the plug on her show.

We've had a successful partnership with Randi for several years and we wish her all the best for the future. Premiere Networks will conclude syndication and production of Randi Rhodes on May 16, 2014." (Audio clips after the jump) Rhodes spent...

    On Wednesday night’s broadcast of The Rachel Maddow Show, host Rachel Maddow discussed the recent events surrounding Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy in detail. Not only did she address the standoff between Bundy’s supporters and federal agents, she placed this incident in the context of recent history. On top of that, she reviewed all of the coverage Bundy has received from the conservative media and contended that these ‘journalists’ are ‘playing with fire.’ Below is video from the show:(VIDEO-AT-LINK) Maddow began her show by contrasting the recent events surrounding Bundy and his supporters, who state that they do not recognize the...

    Abortion practitioners across the country are responsible for nearly 57 million abortions. They kill unborn babies on a daily basis, kill and injure women in failed abortions, and leave women, men, and families dealing with devastating mental health and spiritual issues as a result. While a majority of Americans oppose abortion and believe abortions ought to be illegal, MSNBC held a segment calling abortion practitioners heroes. The Maddow show story focused on the anger abortion advocates have over pro-life laws in Texas and other states resulting in closing abortion businesses because they can’t seem to follow the law. As Texas...

    MSNBC got rid of Keith Olbermann with some difficulty and then they went and hired a guy who makes Keith look well adjusted and then they fired him. And surprise, surprise… Alec Baldwin thinks his former MSNBC colleague Rachel Maddow is “a phony.”“She’s a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air,” Baldwin told New York Magazine’s Joe Hagan in an extensive tell-all published late Sunday night.Baldwin’s short-lived MSNBC program ended late last year after he made homophobic threats to a photographer.

I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice. I wanted to speak with a gay-rights group that I had researched and admired, so I called its local Honolulu branch. The office number turned out to be some guy’s cell phone. I left him a message—I said, “I’m from out of town, I’m visiting Hawaii on business, I’d like to get some information on your group.” After two or three more calls,...

    MSNBC, the Houston Chronicle and other mainstream media outlets are saying that Republican intervention in the union vote at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee helped to tip scales, like somehow the GOP committed a crime. And in doing so, they provided the GOP with an important campaign focus group: The liberals are deathly afraid that Americans will discover that, yes, the Republicans aren’t afraid of helping to create jobs in the private sector. “It was as ferocious an anti-union campaign as anything Americans have seen in a while,” says the MSNBC Rachel Maddow blog. “Indeed, the Republican effort, bolstered...

    Hosting a daily talk radio show means I have to follow the news regularly. It’s my job. Luckily it’s also what I love doing and have been doing since high school. But lately it has seemed more like work because, to find news, you have to sift through a lot of garbage and uninformed opinions. I’ve been called a lot in my life. Most is accurate if not suitable for print. But nothing elicits a faster response from me than to be called “journalist.” I am not a journalist, I am a columnist.

    Eliana Johnson’s National Review piece on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has provoked some buzz on Twitter today. Here’s an excerpt: “Behind her back, colleagues call her ‘the queen,’ a not so subtle suggestion that Maddow gets what Maddow wants. And what she wants is a network filled with young wonks such as Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein, Alex Wagner, and Harris-Perry, whose highbrow intellectualism can, she hopes, push the Democratic party, and the country, to the left.”Notice that (according to Johnson, at least) Maddow’s goal isn’t to win the ratings war, but rather, to “push the Democratic party, and the country, to...

    MSNBC has had a hard time lately. The network fired Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin for craziness, on-air and off-air respectively. Melissa Harris-Perry was forced to apologize, first on Twitter and then, tearfully, on the air, for making political hay out of Mitt Romney’s adopted grandson. The network put Ed Schulz out to pasture, and most people wrote Chris Matthews off as a hysteric long ago, so that pretty much leaves Rachel Maddow–amazingly enough–as MSNBC’s supposed voice of sanity. Eliana Johnson has reported on Maddow’s status as the “queen” of MSNBC, who wields more control than anyone else over the...

    MSNBC, the left-leaning cable-news network, has settled on one solution to its recent problems. It now has an executive reviewing scripts before they go on the air. The role, which has fallen to Rich Stockwell, a former executive producer of The Ed Show and Countdown with Keith Olbermann who now oversees special projects at the network, was created as several of the network’s hosts have, to the embarrassment of network brass, conducted a master class in political incorrectness. In recent months, Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, and, most recently, Melissa Harris-Perry have awkwardly crashed into the trinity of sexual orientation, gender,...

    Here are twelve comical but true resolutions that every liberal should make for 2013: 1.) Resolve to spend time with gun-owners. I have a liberal friend who says she would rather be in the same room as a cobra snake than a gun, even an unloaded gun. Guns really, really scare her. But guns don’t kill. People kill. Whether the tool is a gun or a knife or a baseball bat, unconscionable people kill, not the inanimate objects in their hands. Banning all tools and machinery will not turn bad people into good people. Doing so would make us more...

    It’s not enough that liberals sought to destroy a good man’s reputation when he was nominated to the Supreme Court. Their efforts at character assassination continue after his passing. One of the most contemptible examples of this came from Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show Dec. 19 in talking about the death of Robert Bork and his influence on American jurisprudence and politics over the last four decades. As to be expected, Maddow focused on Bork’s thwarted nomination to the Supreme Court in the fall of 1987, the opening salvo in our decades-long culture war. …
  • Maddow Mocks Republican Defeat With Orgy Of 'Disaster' Digs

    Didn't anyone ever tell Rachel Maddow that revenge is a dish best eaten cold? Using the thinnest of pretexts, Rachel went on a Republican-taunting rampage on her MSNBC show last night. The supposed subject was the decision of Senate Republicans to elevate John Cornyn to the #2 leadership spot, despite the disappointing results for the GOP's senatorial campaign committee that he led. That gave Maddow an excuse to refer no fewer than a dozen times to Republican "failure", "catastrophe" and "disaster." View the video here.

    I generally try to stay out of political discussions whenever possible. I have blood pressure considerations to keep in mind. Every once in awhile, though, something happens that really causes my blood to boil, and I’m forced to comment on it. Last night’s debate provided one of those moments. I avoided watching the actual debate. I try never to listen to President Obama speak—I find his delivery unpalatable, not to mention his content. Instead, I watched highlights on various news channels, and even went to MSNBC to find out how the Left responded to the debate. One of the statements...

    Keep up the good work, Rachel, even when it's not at all what you intended. In the wake of last week's deadly attack against the US consulate in Benghazi, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow helpfully provided Mitt Romney with plenty of damning information for use against President Obama in their upcoming debates. (Video clip after page break)Rachel Maddow Can't Bring Herself to Ask Why Security Was So Lax at US Consulate in BenghaziTurns out there were warning signs going back months that the situation in Benghazi was rapidly deteriorating and the Obama administration did little to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens and the...
  • Rachel Maddow: Clint Eastwood’s RNC Speech Was ‘A Political Disaster’ For The GOP

    Rachel Maddow arguably had the most stunned reaction of anyone in cable news last night to Clint Eastwood‘s speech at the Republican National Convention last night. She followed up on her show tonight, putting particular emphasis on the RNC’s bizarre decision to not air the Mitt Romney biographical video in the primetime slot in favor of Eastwood spending over ten minutes scolding an empty chair. Maddow said that the timing of Eastwood’s speech was not good for the GOP, because they needed the “maximum political impact” from Romney’s speech last night, and it was completely eclipsed by Eastwood’s confusing rambling....

    (VIDEO AT LINK) Rachel Maddow: "Can I also just say can you imagine the uproar if two Democrats who had never served in the military and do not have family service, history of serving in the military, literally ran out of a battleship and onto the podium to declare the vice-presidential nomination in their party -- if two Democrats, without military service records, as Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan don't have service records, using this battleship and using this military setting..."

    One of the finest examples of how liberal media members really don't know what they're talking about occurred on HBO's Real Time Friday when Reason's Nick Gillespie gave a much-needed education to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and host Bill Maher on the issue of Fast and Furious. In the end, Maddow and Maher embarrassed themselves in a fashion that should have both of their respective networks seriously concerned about their qualifications to disseminate information to the public (video follows with transcript and commentary): Reason's Nick Gillespie Schools Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher on Fast and Furious RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC: I think...
