  • Amidst Obama's Falling Poll Numbers, MSNBC Tries to Suggest He Could Rebound Like Reagan

    During the 3 p.m. MSNBC news hour Monday, anchor Chris Jansing asked the question and hosted an expert who supplied the seemingly desired answer. The question: Could President Obama make a mid-term comeback similar to President Reagan in 1982? The answer: Absolutely. The two discussed the similarities of the situations faced by the presidents, and seemed to conclude that if the economy turns around, President Obama would almost certainly be re-elected. It is a big if, but the short segment seemed quite focused on what would happen after the economy turns around. The two didn't bother to discuss what would...

    Many Sources | 8/22/2010 | By Lazamataz
    This last summer, it was widely (and embarassingly) reported that a shadowy internet group had formed with the intent to 'discuss' (read: orchestrate, collude, plan and slant) the news. This group of approximately 400 journalist from many different 'media' outlets had met regularly to decide on what -- and how -- the news would be presented. From WikiPedia: JournoList (sometimes referred to as the J-List)[1] was a private Google Groups forum for discussing politics and the news media with 400 journalists, academics and others, all with political views ranging from centrist to center-left to leftist. Ezra Klein, an American blogger...

    Ok I'm watching NBC Nightly News and Williams starts breathlessly discussing a Pew poll showing the # of Americans believing Obama is Muslim climbing. see:http://pewresearch.org/. Then he throws it to the buck toothed Chuck Todd that began to attack the people who believe Obama is a Muslim. Claims there is NO proof to the assertion that Obama is a Muslim. HUMMMMM, see:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQqIpdBOg6I&feature=related Todd went on to complain that when Obama was elected the Obama campaign took down it's web site to fight the smears. and finally claimed that Obama didn't wear his "Christian Faith on his sleeve".

  • Politico Ignores Dems. Culture of Corruption to Talk of GOP's 'Offbeat Candidates'

    Publius Forum ^ | 08/17/10 | Warner Todd Huston
    Interestingly, Politico is trying to rearrange this election's narrative from the real one of widespread voter dissatisfaction with the Democrat status quo to one of "offbeat GOP candidates" that will "hurt the GOP." Gee, why would that be, eh? As Democrats all across the land are either stepping aside so as not to face difficult reelection campaigns, or losing their incumbent seats to primary challenges, the latest polls show the GOP beating the heck out of Democrats on a generic ballot. Further, Republican voters are energized as never before and 57% of poll respondents even say that the Democrat's agenda...

  • Networks Ignore Missouri Voters' Rejection of ObamaCare, Instead Celebrate Obama's Birthday

    In the first voter referendum on ObamaCare, Missourians on Tuesday overwhelmingly (by 71 to 29 percent) backed Proposition C which called upon the state to enact a statute to “deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance,” an outcome the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described as “rebuking President Barack Obama's administration.” On Wednesday night, however, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts skipped the bad news for President Obama – yet all found time to celebrate his 49th birthday. (The Missouri repudiation of a central tenet of ObamaCare came a day after another setback...

    Among the individuals who were part of the controversial JournoList e-mail group were activists who served on an editorial board alongside Weather Underground terror group founders William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, WND has learned. Also, it has emerged that other members of JournoList were activists from a far-left think tank with close ties to a Marxist-founded, George Soros-funded group that petitions for more government control of the Internet. So far, 107 names have been confirmed as part of the JournoList e-mail group of about 400 reporters and activists. The list shut down last month after group members were caught discussing...

    Raw footage of CBS News anchor Katie Couric recording voice-overs for news segments about Gov. Sarah Palin on the day she was named as John McCain’s running mate: [...] What’s newsworthy here isn’t merely that Couric mocked the GOP’s historic Vice Presidential nominee–most of us have said things we’re not proud of in private–it’s that she did so so brazenly in front of her supposedly objective news team. Conservatives4Palin raises another good point about Couric and Co.’s efforts to marginalize the former Alaska governor from day one: “[W]hat in [Palin's] impressive biography did CBS News and Couric choose to focus...

    The following video was sent to C4P’s tips account. As you can see, the video shows Katie Couric preparing to go on the air on the day John McCain announced Governor Palin as his running mate. It shows some tantalizing hints of Couric’s attitude toward the Governor--when talking about first Trig, then Track, Couric says “where the hell do they get these [names]?...” At that point the producer running the sound board shut off the sound because he or she didn’t want to have Couric’s disdainful and contemptuous view of Governor Palin’s children captured on even an internal CBS tape...
  • The auto industry lives. Can we admit that government intervention worked?

    Washington Post ^ | 8/2/10 | E.J. Dionne Jr.
    Who could have imagined that the bailout of the auto industry, one of the single most unpopular moves by the Obama administration, would become one of its best talking points? But don't for an instant imagine that the comeback of the nation's rescued car companies, particularly General Motors, will change the way we debate government's role in the economy. When it comes to almost anything the government does, ideology trumps facts, slogans trump reality, and loaded words ("socialism") trump data. Let there be no mistake: Rescuing GM and Chrysler took political courage, and I want to put in a good...

    Trevor Loudon Obama File #109 JournoList was an email group of up to 400 prominent U.S. journalists, academics and “new media” activists, who reportedly colluded in the run up to the 2008, to influence public opinion in favor of the Barack Obama and the Democrats and against their Republican opponents. Many “JournoListas” were involved with Marxist based based organizations such as Democratic Socialists of America, or the far left Institute for Policy Studies. Some, like Robert Kuttner of The American Prospect, had close ties to the Obama campaign and Administration. An overlapping group of “JournoListas” , at least eight strong...

    It's no secret that POLITICO is a biased news organization. The online polictical blog is as progressive as they come. Very agenda driven. In our reporting we have already addressed the fact that Journolist members are solidly entrenched inside POLITICO's upper levels. Something Roger Simon, who calls the website home, tried to downplay. John Nolte over at Big Journalism isn't buying it, and has a simply marvelous retort: You say MSM, I say Politico. You say corrupt, I say Politico. Today, Politico’s Roger Simon was kind enough to almost scold JournoList for its lasting effect on his precious little profession...

    In a widely read and discussed piece at the Daily Beast, Reihan Salan asks: Has a shadowy gang of left-wing journalists and intellectuals been plotting to manipulate the news cycle… His answer is, yes, perhaps so, but they’d be doing it with or without Journolist. Salan is more right than he probably knows. The list of those identified as former members of the group is now up to about 146 names, out of 400 in all. Nearly 1/4 of those individuals were connected with another media organization called the Media Consortium. The Consortium is an organization of progressive media outlets...

    Barack Obama told The View co-host Joy Behar that it was her job, and by inference that of her fellow liberals in the media, to be his "attack dog" to defend his presidency and counter the influence of conservatives in the media.Behar, who also hosts her own primetime current events talk show on CNN's HLN channel, complained to Obama in an interview taped on Wednesday for broadcast today on ABC that he has lost control of the narrative of his presidency (via MediaBistro):Behar: "You've really done a lot, I think. You've signed 200 plus laws since you're in office, financial...

    Among the individuals who were part of the controversial "JournoList" e-mail group were activists with ties to the White House and a socialist group closely linked for years to President Obama. Other members of JournoList were activists from a far-left think tank that has been partnered with ACORN and was founded with input from Obama. The group, Demos, may have been instrumental in securing the appointment of Obama's former "green jobs" adviser, Van Jones, who resigned after it was exposed he funded a communist organization.

    How ironic that on a day when we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, The Daily Caller released 15 pages of JournoListers’ email exchanges about a dark and demented conspiracy regarding my son, Trig. It’s tough to fittingly describe these numerous members of the mainstream media who actively engaged in the debate about this conspiracy back when I was first introduced as John McCain’s running mate, and it’s impossible to legitimize any “prominent” media publication that continues to traffic in this bizarre narrative today. It wasn’t just a few fringe characters...
