  • MSNBC Replays Rubio Water Sip 155 Times in One Day, Far More Than CNN and Fox News Combined

    The liberal hosts on MSNBC just couldn't get enough of watching U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio reach for a glass of water and take a sip during his rebuttal of President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, airing the snippet a staggering 155 times during the Wednesday broadcast schedule. Other cable news networks showed the footage far less often. CNN aired it 34 times, and Fox News Channel played it just 12 times -- all of which took place on “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity” while the hosts discussed the media's obsession with the Florida Republican's “watergate” incident. MSNBC's total...
  • Massachusetts Universal Healthcare a Disaster

    WBZ Radio, Boston | 9/20/09
    On this morning's news: MassCare has added 488,000 people to the healthcare rolls. Result: MA now has a serious shortage of OB/GYNs, Urologists, Internal Medicine specialists, Dermatologists, surgeons, and others. Doctors are fleeing MA's insane politics and taxes. Criminal aliens are choking the system (signs in MA hospitals now have to be in NINE languages, and every illegal gets assigned a tax-paid translator at the hospital). Just a small taste of ObamaCare, I assert.

    Plot Synopsis: Julie Powell (Amy Adams) plays a 29-year old Queens woman who works in some redevelopment corporation for remediation of 9/11 issues, who's bored with the job, and depressed with the stories she has to deal with. Her husband suggests she write a blog, but the only blog-worthy thing in her life is her work, which would defeat the purpose of blogging. She realizes she enjoys cooking and does start the blog with the intention of working through a Julia Child cookbook with about 500 recipes in one year. She posts the number of days and recipes remaining on...

    Chris Matthews: Back With an Obamania Vengeance . . . If Barack Obama makes it to the White House, perhaps he should appoint Chris Matthews Commissar of Gosplan, the Commission charged with developing the economy's Five Year Plans. The Hardball host, back from vacation, displayed the enthusiasm of a dutiful apparatchik in praising an Obama ad that was in turn a pitch for central planning. During the "ad wars" segment on this evening's Hardball, Matthews first played a McCain ad that hit Obama over his plans to raise taxes and his lack of readiness to lead. After Andrea Mitchell suggested...

    Caught on Tape: James Brolin Touts 9/11Conspiracy Website on 'The View' Posted by Tim Graham on December 28, 2006 - 15:55. The Christmas break replay season offered a chance to catch up on shocking episodes of "The View" on ABC. On December 26, a replay of the December 6 program gave viewers in the Eastern and Central time zones the chance to see James Brolin pitch a government-set-up-9/11 website: "Can I tell you to have a look at www.911weknow.com? And then wait until I see you next time." The first broadcast was blocked in the East due to doting live...

    SNIP.... MINOR EDITINGMAC Cosmetics has censored Sandra Bernhard for bashing the GOP. The cosmetics giant, owned by Estée Lauder, got hundreds of complaints after it posted an online ad this week for its Plushglass lip gloss in which the balloon-lipped comic does some free-form ranting, including a riff about an "intimidated, frightened, right-wing Republican thin-lipped bitch." But Mac oddly didn't cut a line in which Bernhard cheekily discusses the bodily fluids of a horny barnyard bird.

    BENNINGTON, Vermont (AP) -- A high school teacher is facing questions from administrators after giving a vocabulary quiz that included digs at President Bush and the extreme right. Bret Chenkin, a social studies and English teacher at Mount Anthony Union High School, said he gave the quiz to his students several months ago. The quiz asked students to pick the proper words to complete sentences. One example: "I wish Bush would be (coherent, eschewed) for once during a speech, but there are theories that his everyday diction charms the below-average mind, hence insuring him Republican votes." "Coherent" is the right...

    Real Men of Genius by Salena Zito Bob Winter is one guy who gets it. This low-key copywriter is the genius behind those rather addictive ‘Real Men of Genius’ Bud Light ads. Winter found a simple way to tap into America’s admiration for the slightly misguided hero we love to root for. As we listen or watch the everyman that takes on the world with his odd jobs or ridiculous inventions, we find a way to smile and nod in admiration. We silently salute this offbeat champion. By the end of the commercial, when the schmaltzy music begins to swell,...

    If you watch a lot of cable news, by now you've probably heard someone refer to a bloc of voters known as '' 'South Park' conservatives.'' The term comes from the title of a new book by Brian C. Anderson, a conservative pundit who adapted it from the writer Andrew Sullivan, and it refers to the notion that Comedy Central's obscene spoof of life in small-town America, with its hilarious skewering of liberal snobbery, is somehow the perfect crucible for understanding a new breed of brash and irreverent Republican voters. In truth, aside from its title, Anderson's book has very...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Rick Santorum says he "meant no offense" by referring to Adolf Hitler while defending the GOP's right to ban judicial filibusters as Senate leaders prepared to start a countdown Friday to a vote over whether to stop minority senators from blocking President Bush's judicial nominees. "Referencing Hitler was meant to dramatize the principle of an argument, not to characterize my Democratic colleagues," Santorum, the No. 3 Republican in the GOP leadership in the Senate, said of his remarks Thursday.Passions have been running high as senators argue over whether Republicans should allow the out-of-power Democrats to use...

    Just in case anyone missed this one. Sharpton's claim that the freed slaves never got the 40 acres and a mule is correct. But it's actually not the fault of the Republicans. It was President Andrew Johnson (Democrat) who vetoed the bill passed by Congress in 1869. Take that mule all the way to the DNC!

    The real deal Linda Ronstadt's current tour – 'a history lesson of music' – reflects her dedication to authenticity, and quality By George Varga July 15, 2004 Other singers may have a greater passion for music than Linda Ronstadt. But few have a greater passion for more types of music, or the willingness to perform them, even at the risk of falling on her face. "My career has befuddled other people, and it's befuddled me," admitted Ronstadt, 58, who finds her fans are polarized by her nightly on-stage salute to "Fahrenheit 9/11" filmmaker Michael Moore. "I've been dedicating a song...

    Democrats in Missouri actually have the gall to insist that a new campaign billboard is not "race baiting."The billboard, pictured here, has a black man's face dourfully looking out next to the words "Missouri Republicans have a plan.

    Is the Rev. Al Sharpton working with Republicans to torpedo Democrat chances of locking up the black vote in this year's presidential election? That's just one of the questions raised by the Village Voice this week, in a bombshell report that details the curious relationship between GOP strategist Roger Stone and the civil rights leader-turned presidential hopeful. Describing Stone as "a longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative," the Voice said he is "financing, staffing, and orchestrating the presidential campaign of Reverend Al Sharpton." The paper says it has documented "an extraordinary array of connections" and calls Stone's role in the Sharpton...

    New HBO Series Presents Not-So-Angelic AgendaCal ThomasSyndicated Columnist HBO's latest film, Angels in America, is a two-part, multi-hour production that aired Sunday and Monday nights and will continue being broadcast all week. Angels is based on the Tony Kushner play about the American homosexual experience. I didn't want to watch it, but I did, and must admit it is one of the most effective pieces of propaganda I have encountered. Gays and lesbians are portrayed as victims -- not of their own choices but of Republicans and specifically the Reagan administration during whose second term the drama is set. British...

    One month to the day after the Republican club at Wells College (an all-women’s college located in Aurora, NY) published a study revealing a grossly disproportionate number of left-wing professors on its faculty, the student government denied recognition to the club as an official campus organization. On November 7th, the Wells Republicans issued a press release describing the study they had conducted of the political party registrations of the members of the social sciences and humanities faculties at the college. The study revealed that members of parties of the Left (Democrats, Greens, Working Families) outnumbered Republicans by a ratio...

    When The Los Angeles Times published articles just days before the California recall election detailing reports of inappropriate sexual behavior by Arnold Schwarzenegger, its editor steadfastly defended the timing. "It is a paper's job to disclose anything it knows that bears on a candidate's fitness for office — before Election Day, not after," the editor, John Carroll, said. But Republicans on talk radio, the Internet and some cable television talk shows accused the newspaper of shilling for Gov. Gray Davis. And many voters agreed. "This is a Davis ploy — he's the king of dirty tricks," one Schwarzenegger voter said,...

    My three year old grandson is ill and spending the day with me. Usually, he plays his games on computer or watches his favorite movies. But today he is lethargic and wanted to watch cartoons. His parents allow him to watch Nick so I turned it on. During the program that airs between 1:30 and 2:00 CST (I have no idea the name) a character dressed in a suit said "I am rich. I am important. I am a Republican". I had no idea that the liberal writers and producers spread their overt bias to even cartoons at the pre-school...

    ANOTHER REASON NOT TO WATCH NETWORK TV Last night I found myself in the unusual situation of actually watching some network television. When I turned the TV on it was tuned to some sitcom starring Ted Dansen. Well, I used to like Cheers and the writing seemed decent so I decided to give it a thought for a moment or two. Evidently Dansen plays a doctor. During one scene he is handing some teenage kid a bag of condoms. The kid tells Dansen’s character he isn’t really concerned about HIV because, after all, they have some sort of a cocktail...
