  • Musicians at Latin Grammys tell viewers: ‘Don’t vote for racists'

    Al Jazeera ^ | November 20, 2015 | Ned Resnikoff
    Performers Maná and Los Tigres del Norte end musical numbers with a political message.Two big-name musical acts urged audience members at this year’s Latin Grammys to vote against “racist” politicians, in an apparent shot across the bow at Donald Trump and other presidential candidates who have made disparaging remarks about Hispanic immigrants. The band Los Tigres del Norte finished a performance during the awards show, which aired Thursday night, by displaying a banner with the words, “Latinos unidos, no voten por los racistas,” which translates to “Latinos united, don’t vote for racists.” The band Maná, which took home the award...

    Did we hear that right? On Tuesday, The View ladies devoted a few minutes to the Syrian refugee crisis. Reacting to Republican candidates’ proposals, they criticized allowing only Christians refugees into the United States, because, after all, even Christians can be bad. Case in point: Adolf Hitler – according to Whoopi Goldberg. To introduce the segment, Goldberg pointed to solutions proposed by Republican candidates for the Syrian refugees. “Republican candidates like Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz think America should only accept Christian Syrian refugees,” she began. “Donald Trump says we should strongly consider closing the mosques. Is this really going...

    Hello FReeper friends. For the first time in several years, I've got a few bucks to spare. I'd like to finally upgrade from my old CRT television to a flat-screen TV. I'm also investigating the various options for streaming video to the TV via WiFi. I'm looking at devices like Roku and Amazon's FireTV -- especially because Amazon is having a Black Friday deal on the FireTV stick. However, the TVs that I'm looking at all are WiFi enabled. So here's my question: unless I really, really want features specific to FireTV, do I really need it (or Roku) if...
  • Iran: Rouhani heading to Europe with highest figures of journalists behind bars

    Two United Nations human rights experts joined voice in warning Iranian authorities on the arrest, prosecution and harassment of journalists and online activists. Ahmed Shaheed, UN Special Rapporteur on Iran, and David Kaye, the Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression also demanded safe space for freedom of expression as Iran is heading for general elections next February. What makes it all the more interesting is that these calls are being made upon a regime led by Hassan Rouhani who claims of leading efforts for change in Iran and preparing to visit Europeans eager for Iran’s...
  • Why Does Chris Matthews Think Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz Are Not Hispanic?

    I don’t know if Chris Matthews has a drinking problem but he gives a great approximation of the old guy at the bar who is about half in the bag at lunch time… and who you’ll find there again after work. I don’t mean to disparage Matthews’s ethnicity, because he is apparently (according to Wikipedia) half Irish, and if he does have a problem we all certainly hope he dries out, but I bring it up as I search for possible explanations for some of his behavior. For instance, Via Newsbusters we have this clip of Matthews discussing the Cruz...

    But they're definitely "Cuban Nationals" Chris Matthews is lost in a quandary. He doesn’t know how to categorize Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Since he’s a lifelong left-winger, placing humans into the proper boxes is of the utmost importance, because it’s the only thing that informs his commentary. If he doesn’t know what they are, it’s impossible for him to formulate one of his ridiculous attacks. Specifically, he can’t figure out if Rubio and Cruz are “Hispanic.” He’s pretty sure they’re “Cuban Nationals,” but beyond that he has no idea which label he should apply, and that’s upsetting his identity...
  • An inside look at the underside of Tuesday’s Republican Presidential debate

    The Hillsdale Collegian ^ | November 11, 2015 | Macaela Bennett
    When Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, made a snide comment about jour­nalists during Tuesday’s fourth Republican Pres­i­dential debate, hundreds of jour­nalists clustered in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, media filing center shared a moment. While responding to crit­icisms of Donald Trump’s firm stance against illegal immi­gration, Cruz said many people disregard immi­gration as an economic issue. He blamed this misun­der­standing partially on the main­stream media’s coverage of it. To emphasize his point, Cruz argued that the media would cover the issue differently if undoc­u­mented immi­grants entering the United States were applying for jour­nalism jobs. “I will say, the politics of it would be...
  • FBN Moderator Cavuto Hopes to Make Himself ‘Invisible’ at Next GOP Debate

    Mediaite ^ | November 9, 2015 | Elizabeth Preza
    As the Fox Business Network tackles the next Republican presidential debate, the moderators aim to juxtapose FBN with their much-maligned rival, CNBC. In interviews with Politico, FBN moderators Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo described their vision for the upcoming debate. “My goal is to make myself invisible,” Cavuto said, adding that he hopes the moderators are “not the issue.” Cavuto’s goal is not surprising, given the backlash aimed at CNBC after the last Republican debate. Arguably the biggest moment of the Oct. 29 showdown involved Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz blasting the network and moderators for trying to incite a...

    Shocker. ....No. Not really. By all accounts, CNBC’s Republican debate was an unmitigated disaster. Not for the candidates, mind you, but for the moderators, the network, its parent company, and the left in general. What was obviously a planned attack on the GOP field blew up in the faces of its would be perpetrators - and it did so in spectacular fashion. Instead of making the candidates squirm, the network made the angry. Instead of looking weak, they rallied and went on the offense. Instead of goading the field into a circular firing squad, the moderators placed a spotlight on...

    Don't poke the bear! No, seriously, I love these debates. First of all, they’re entertaining. A comedy writer couldn’t come up with better lines than these moderators. But more than that, each debate offers insights into the candidate’s political views, personal finances, juvenile records, and sex life. Who could ask for anything more? My favorite brawl so far is the third debate, the one with all the hullabaloo about bias journalists (like that’s news). It starts out slow, stump speeches and empty rhetoric. There’s a couple of false starts like when John Harwood asks Trump if he’s running a comic...

    It’s okay to feel a little trepidation before going to see The Peanuts Movie. After all, it was only a couple of months ago that the powers that be decided what the world really needed was a Muppets television show full of penis jokes and pessimistic cruelty. If the folks entrusted with Jim Henson’s creations were willing to submit Kermit and Fozzy to that kind of butchery, why should Charlie Brown and Snoopy be any safer? Well, let those trepidations slide away, because, to paraphrase Charles M. Schulz, happiness is a film about a warm puppy. The best way...

    Clowns Here was my favorite headline of the week: ‘Shell-shocked’ CNBC staffers had long flight home Good. I hope they’re having a long and horrible week too. When you’re trusted with directing something as serious as a presidential debate, and instead you beclown yourself as these fools did, you don’t deserve any rest. But this goes to a more fundamental problem about presidential debates in general, especially but not exclusively primary debates. When and why did we buy into the notion that debates must be led and directed by journalists prompting the participants with questions? Indeed, why do journalists get...

But Speaker Paul Ryan did a pretty good job regardless in his appearance yesterday.

    In summary, I thought the so-called debate was no more than a “Cage-Match” promoted by CNBC, owned by NBC, a division of Comcast and one of the nation’s leading liberal networks You know, as the sun set on Wednesday night, October 28th, I realized that my night was, potentially speaking, full of great things to watch on T.V., all of which had the makings of a very entertaining evening. A lot there to choose from, I should say. There was that first game of baseball’s World Series, between the N.Y. Mets and the Kansas City Royals; there was my long-awaited...

    GOP candidates face a firing squad manned by leftist journalists The Republican presidential candidates’ debate on CNBC wasn’t so much a debate as it was a firing squad manned by left-leaning journalists. Over and over journalistic equivalents of, “When did you stop beating your wife?” were asked of the candidates. The reporter-moderators weren’t just asking questions: they were prosecuting the candidates at a televised show trial. Personal attacks were disguised as questions. (Here is a transcript of the at times boisterous 10-way main debate, along with a transcript of the four-way undercard debate that preceded it.)

    Lowering the boom If you watched last night’s debate, you witnessed the media at its absolute worst. The debate moderators were combative, biased, insulting, and agenda driven. Their questions were mostly designed to get candidates yelling at each other (a strategy that didn’t really work) and they often stemmed from faulty research. In short, it was a long, embarrassing, night for left-wing talking heads. The fun part was that, almost from the outset, the terrible questioning united the candidates against the moderators rather than pitting them against each other. Eventually the whole thing devolved into a bizarre display where CNBC’s...

    Instead of cowering in fear of the media, it appears that a number of the GOP candidates are fighting back, and calling them out. It wasn’t the first time, but it felt like a turning point. It’s about time While the media focus on which of the candidates did well, and which didn’t, they overlooked the biggest loser of the night: the media. Whether intended or not, the difference in the questioning of the Democrats in their October 13 CNN debate versus the questioning of the Republicans in their three debates so far proved to be an issue that boiled...

    In an interview with Terry Gross for her "Fresh Air" program on NPR Monday, Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos provided a glimpse into his reasoning on immigration. As seen in the excerpts below, Ramos makes no distinction between "undocumented immigrants" and legal immigrants. He believes that since Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are Latinos whose parents immigrated to the United States they should support illegal immigration. It is irrelevant to Ramos that that their parents came legally. Here it is clear that Ramos's argument benefits from the change in terminology for the national immigration discussion. The term "immigrant"...

    Miley Cyrus may have hosted the SNL Season 41 premiere, but the show was all about applauding Hillary Clintonand not just when she appeared. Live From New Yorkits a Hillary Clinton campaign ad. On Saturday night, Studio 8H was briefly remodeled into a pop-up Ready For Hillary campaign headquarters for the 41st season premiere of Saturday Night Live. The guest of honor herself even showed up for a heavily teased set, one that was tailor-made to lampoon the two biggest critiques of her personathat her presidential ambition can at times read as deranged entitlement and desperation, and that she lacks...

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 It seems Jennifer Lawrences thoughts on Donald Trump echo Katniss Everdeens feelings toward President Snow. For the uninitiated, that means shes not a fan. During a lively conversation with the three leads of the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay Part 2, the Republican presidential candidate became the topic of conversation. If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world, says Lawrence. Her co-star Liam Hemsworth feels the same: Ill back you up on that, he adds. Josh Hutcherson, the third lead in the massive franchise,...

    Vincent Price created Snowden in a lab. When youre looking for someone who can intelligently discuss the world of international espionage and Edward Snowden, theres at least a small chance that choosing someone with the Twitter handle @fart is a mistake. No, scratch that, theres a 100% chance that its a mistake. Apparently, theres also a 100% chance that the fine folks who run CNNs sister network, Headline News, will make that mistake. Yesterday, during a segment discussing Snowdens new Twitter presence, the Nancy Grace network featured a guest named John Hendren. Evidently, they thought they were booking an Al...

    Donald Trump’s “60 Minutes” interview aired Sunday, and at least one viewer loved it, writing “Brilliant Mr. Trump, he is so Awesome!! And real.” And that viewer was–Trump, himself, who is no stranger to self-congratulations. Donald J. Trump ✔ ‎@realDonaldTrump "@truthshallbe: @60Minutes @realDonaldTrump Been watching!!! Brilliant Mr. Trump, he is so Awesome!! And real." 7:56 PM - 27 Sep 2015 But plenty of others shared the sentiment that the GOP frontrunner did well in the interview with CBS News host Scott Pelley....

    Majority of Fox News commentators and guests seem to prefer anybody but Donald Trump. If this type of bias continues, it remains to be seen if conservatives, the backbone of their audience, will remain loyal to the network. Stay tuned Ever since it was launched in 1996, Fox News has enjoyed an ever growing television audience. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh often promoted Fox News in the early years of the network, helping to establish the connection with conservatives across the country. In fact, thanks to Rush and others on talk radio, Fox News enjoyed tremendous ratings growth over the...

    <p>Anyone who is viewing the battle between Donald Trump and Fox News as a representative battle of thin-skinned ego is entirely missing the point.</p> <p>Trump is not just taking on the construct of progressive ideology that has undermined the essence of American exceptionalism; Trump is not just exposing the immense number of faux-conservatives in media and political punditry; Trump is not just allowing us to see the scope of anti-American interest; no, he’s taking on the very selfish foundation they’ve used to sell out our country. Heck, he’s taking on all the “Decepticons” simultaneously.</p>

    Business Insider ^ | September 24, 2015 | Rob Garver, The Fiscal Times
    Recent media coverage of Donald Trumps presidential campaign has noted that the loudmouthed billionaire currently leading the Republican field in public opinion polls has been increasingly eager to complain to his audiences about how the dishonest media is covering his campaign. Floating theories about NBC suppressing coverage of its own polls in order to report on other findings less friendly to Trump and about the heat on the stage at CNNs debate last week, the real estate mogul and former reality television star has come across as a little bit paranoid. Of course, just because youre paranoid doesnt meant they...

    Its remarkable watching Donald Trump eviscerate the mainstream media. If this was The Matrix hes Neo. If this was Star Trek, Id be like Spock studying a new intelligent life in the universe that feeds off its own popularity: the more energy put into killing it, the stronger it gets. Trump is the hate eater; he digests abhorrence and excretes devotion. Fascinating, the Spock in me says, watching Trump effortlessly turn 60 Minutes host Scott Pelley into Jell-O, then deliver his own sound bite right on cue. It wasnt even challenging for the master of manipulation, like Bruce Lee playing...
