  • Greg Gutfeld's Case Not to Defund NPR: We Need Them to Remind Us What Subsidized Failure Looks Like

    It appears Juan Williams’ firing is just what the public needed to realize their tax dollars are being poorly handled through subsidies from the federal government given to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to prop up National Public Radio. However, “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld makes the most reasonable case not to deprive NPR of its taxpayer subsidies. On the Oct. 23 broadcast of his program, Gutfeld explains to his viewers his case for not defunding the radio organization, but not without taking some jabs their decision to fire his Fox News colleague. “So, many people are calling for the...

    Meghan McCain went on Rachel Maddow last night to, er, discuss her ‘nutjob’ remarks about Christine O’Donnell on This Week. And to further respond to certain elements of the conservative blogosphere that defined her as a “self-indulgent set of mega-breasts.” Said McCain: I’m over when women say anything in any kind of public forum. It automatically go back to what I look like and how much i weigh. I don’t know at which point, it no longer bothers me but I worry about young women. I have a lot of young women followers,

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 09/15/10 | William A. Jacobson
    Christine O'Donnell won the Delaware primary last night, and within minutes (literally) über liberal Rachel Maddow started running video and commentary on MSNBC about O'Donnell's views on masturbation. The pretext for sexualizing O'Donnell was a 1996 video in which O'Donnell was interviewed about her conservative Christian views on sex. Before Maddow's post, the subject mostly was the subject of left-wing bloggers, but Maddow took it mainstream on MSNBC's primetime coverage. An almost 15-year old video was all the excuse Maddow needed to take the story national. Because the fate of the nation turns on whether O'Donnell masturbates, at least to...

    Bill Clinton flashed irritation at MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and other liberals Monday for failing to appreciate the successes of his presidency. “One of the leading television commentators on one of our liberal cable channels said I was the best Republican president the country ever produced, which would come [as] quite a surprise to the Republicans, half of whom still think I’m a closet communist,” Clinton said during an appearance with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Clinton didn’t mention Maddow by name, but she made that comment on her March 31 show....

    David Letterman, speaking to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on his show, asked about the Shirley Sherrod incident and took it upon himself to slam Andrew Breitbart. At one point during the interview he asked her “how much time, energy was wasted on this a*shole ****ing around?” Maddow described Breitbart as a “spinoff from Matt Drudge, from the Drudge Report.” Breitbart, indeed, used to serve as an editor of the Drudge Report, but her intentions in mentioning the Drudge Report probably amount to the effectiveness of the site to sway public debate– not to mention millions of viewers visiting per day....

"The award recognizes individuals whose actions have embodied the values of civility, tolerance, diversity and cooperation in the advancement of public dialogue and public policy on traditionally controversial and divisive issues."

    Over at the Daily Paul blog, we learn that Rachel Maddow has been circulating an inaccurate transcript of her conversation with Rand Paul. As you can see in the above clip (starting about the 8:00 mark), the candidate for U.S. Senate in Kentucky gave an answer to Maddow's question on civil rights that included various interjections and interruptions. Someone in Maddow-land edited this down to the following exchange: Maddow: Do you think that a private business has the right to say, "We don't serve black people"? Paul: Yes.

After a week of sound byte from and about Dr. Paul and his confrontational appearance on Rachel Maddow's program, I was hoping an interview on the more mainstream Sunday morning staple would allow the candidate to give a clearer impression of his views on civil rights and, specifically, the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Unfortunately, he refused to show up. As a strong believer in smaller government and less government interference in the lives of American citizens, I consider myself part of the Tea Party movement...

    Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul has generated controversy over remarks regarding the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The drama culminated during an appearance on Rachel Maddow's show on MSNBC where Paul stated, had he been in office at the time, he would have worked to change Title II of the bill, the part which entitles all persons to "full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation... without discrimination on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin."

    Rand Paul has been the subject of liberal assaults recently for his comments on Title II of the ‘1964 Civil Rights Act.’ The liberal TV pundits accuse Rand Paul of ‘being ignorant of the law and history,’ but it is actually they who are ignorant-or even worse, purposely misleading. The real issue has nothing to do with race, but with unlimited power granted to the federal government. When Title II of the Civil Rights Act was reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Katzenbach v McClung, it was ruled to be ‘Constitutional’ based on the ‘Commerce Clause’...

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that so-called payday loans probably aren't the most reasonable option when it comes to short-term borrowing. But according to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, it takes the federal government to let you know. On her April 28 program, Maddow charged that these lenders engage in unscrupulous practices, despite offering a service that their clientele is willing to buy. "Last week we did our best to explain payday lenders - who they are and who they are, who they - what they do and who they are, excuse me," Maddow said. "Payday lenders are basically...

    So you do your part and pay your taxes to the federal government. However, you feel you pay too much and you don't like how that same government uses that money. Do you have the right to petition and protest that government? If it's on federal land that your tax dollars paid for, then your protest is hypocritical nonsense, according to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. To her, the tea partiers, who protested on the government land of the National Mall, are hypocrites. Worse, they're getting unwarranted media coverage.

"My partner Susan [Mikula] is a very good cook," Maddow said during a cooking segment on The Martha Stewart Show Wednesday. "On the weekends, she cooks and I make drinks." And the MSNBC host's mixology skills have impressed Stewart, who told the audience, "She makes very good drinks," while guiding Maddow through a segment on cooking barbeque shrimp.

    The ACORN story is not difficult to understand. It is about a simple sting operation designed to reveal that a prominent organization routinely aids illegal activity. When James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles walked into ACORN offices posing as a pimp and prostitute seeking to set up a brothel stocked by underage girls from central America, ACORN employees were only too happy to help – and no doubt, they had been only too happy to help real pimps and prostitutes in the past. Did those employees commit a crime in offering to help O’Keefe and Giles themselves? Of course not, because...

    MSNBC's resident token lesbian Rachel Maddow has disparagingly and bigotedly called the Tea Party Convention attendees racists with white hoods. Spewing these comments on her shameful and lowly rated, barely watched cable opinion show this past Friday, Maddow was in fact basing her slurs on the statements of former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo, who spoke on the first day of the Tea Party Convention. As with all good, liberal bomb-throwers, Maddow is a hypocrite to say the least, but what makes her especially hypocritical is her membership in the token lesbian club on MSNBC.

Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, positively enraged that Massachusetts dared to elect a Republican, delivered two hours of nonstop bilious rage toward the state's voters, calling them "irrational" and "teabaggers," engaged in "a total divorce from reality," and hinting that they're vicious racists to boot.

On the Dec. 29 broadcast of "The Rachel Maddow Show," Maddow took aim at former Bush administration Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, now a Fox News contributor. She noted his prior opposition to same-sex marriage, which according to Maddow's citation of The Atlantic magazine, was done only to win elections. "In the Karl Rove political playbook, more than one chapter covers the tactic of gay-baiting, which Mr. Rove has used to notorious electoral effect," Maddow said. "To quote a 2004 profile...

It is in the banner that headlines Freedom's Lighthouse: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the...

    Two weeks ago, CNN rejected an advertisement from Media Matters and America's Voice, an immigration reform group, to "drop" host Lou Dobbs because of his immigration views. Today, America's Voice announced that the "Drop Dobbs" ad will get some play in major markets beginning tonight on one of CNN's rivals: It will air during MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show."

    I remember the first time I saw Rachel Maddow on MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson show. As is my annoying (to the rest of my house full of normal people) habit, I was working on other things with the TV turned up, keeping up with political arguments, but not just vegging on the couch and devoting my full attention. “Can you turn that off?” I asked my wife who was walking past the blaring tube, “I can’t deal with Ron Reagan Junior’s smug act right now.” She looked at me quizzically and said, “Umm, I’m pretty sure that’s a woman…” As we...

    Perhaps the 41st president still has it in him - at least when it comes to the left crying foul about the so-called uncivil political discourse on right, but being equally if not worse on the left, particularly on MSNBC, the so-called "Place for Politics." In an interview on Oct. 16 with CBS Radio, former President George H.W. Bush took a very critical tact with MSNBC hosts Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, deeming them "a couple of sick puppies." (via MSNBC's Oct. 16 "The Rachel Maddow Show") "I don't like it," Bush said. "I think the cables have a lot...

    On the June 3, 2009 Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, host Rachel Maddow cited a false quote attributed to Rush Limbaugh in which the radio host supposedly said he wanted to award Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassin the Medal of Honor. Since Limbaugh expressed interest in becoming part owner of the St. Louis Rams in October, several MSNBC hosts have repeated that and other false quotes. Reacting to Limbaugh calling then Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor a racist, Maddow declared: “When you get called racist by the guy who says the assassin of Martin Luther King, Jr. should get the...
  • MSNBC Goes Into Astroturf Mode: Organizes Grassroots Gesture of Free Clinics to Shame Senators

    Remember back just a few short months ago - when thousands, if not millions, of Americans were protesting out-of-control government spending and other policies favored by President Barack Obama's administration? Surprised by the resounding turnout, the usual lefty talking heads on MSNBC, specifically on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" and "The Rachel Maddow Show," explained the protests away as being fake grassroots aka AstroTurf? Fast forward to Oct. 7, when both Olbermann and Maddow started laying down AstroTurf of their own. They encouraged free health care clinics to be held in the states of six Democratic senators that are not in...

    This is perhaps a pretty desperate way for MSNBC host Rachel Maddow to try to resonate with her liberal viewers. On her Oct. 6 show, Maddow specifically targeted Sens. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and Jim DeMint, R-S.C. for pursuing foreign policy objectives that run counter to President Barack Obama's on the issues of global warming and Latin America relations. First she set her sights on Inhofe, who recently announced he would be making a trip to Copenhagen to offer an opposing U.S. perspective on the issue of global warming. Inhofe, who is the ranking Republican on the U.S. Senate Committee on...

    Imagine this scene, one that we imagine is familiar to many readers: you've just done something of which your parents do not approve. Perhaps you've tracked mud into the house. Perhaps you were playing ball indoors and smashed a prize lamp. Your parents scold you, preparing to hand down their discipline sentence. “But,” you say, pointing at your siblings beside you, “They did it too!”How many of your parents thought that was a valid excuse? How many of your parents smiled and said “Oh, okay then, none of you have to be disciplined.” The answer probably lies between zero and...

    Recent videos from two investigative reporters, James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, with the help of Andrew Breitbart, showed that community-group ACORN engaging in scandalous practices. But MSNBC host Rachel Maddow argued Sept. 24 that wasn't the story that mattered. ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, was hit hard by the videos showing employees giving tax avoidance advice to a "pimp" and "hooker." But Maddow rose to the defense of ACORN which she called a right-wing "bogeyman," crusading for them on her MSNBC show. She accused corporations of going into "kill mode" against the organization which helps "poor...
