It’s the Lawyers’ World and We Just Die In It

Friday, July 24th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

This is what comes of being a nation of lawyers, not men: “60 Minutes” correspondent Bob Simon was responsible for his own death, the limousine company being sued for the crash that killed him insists in galling new court papers. Simon, 73, understood “all risks and dangers” and “assumed the risk” when he climbed into […]

HuffPo ‘Data Justice’ Director: ‘Will Uber Help Kill The Planet?’

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Beyond parody. The fight over Uber can be reduced by the media in a place like New York City as a fight between hide-bound yellow cabs and high-tech Uber “innovators”–but that’s a frame that ignores the more than 95% of the population that don’t use any kind of cab at all. And when you take […]

MSNBC Reportedly Cancelling Ed Schultz

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Predictable bedfellows. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders today released a statement about Ed Schultz‘s show being yanked from MSNBC. Mediaite exclusively reported last night that The Cycle, Now with Alex Wagner, and The Ed Show are all getting the axe to make way for more straight-news programming. MSNBC has not publicly confirmed it yet, but Sanders […]

[VIDEO] Watch MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Roll Her Eyes at Netanyahu

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

From Digitas Daily, watch MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell roll her eyes when she talks about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while interviewing Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Tuesday. Liberals like to talk about conservatives being on the “wrong side of history” (whatever that means because we can’t know which is the right side of history until we’re […]

But of Course: New York Times Defends ‘Sanctuary Cities’

Monday, July 13th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

As predictable as the rising sun: Kathryn Steinle was killed on a pier in San Francisco on July 1, allegedly by a troubled immigrant who had a stolen gun and a long criminal history and had been deported five times. The shooting was inexplicable, yet Ms. Steinle’s family and friends have been shunning talk of […]

‘Morning Joe’ Crew Guffaws as Hillary Clinton’s Director of Communications Tries to Explain Rope Barrier (Video)

Monday, July 6th, 2015 - by Debra Heine

The gang at MSNBC’s Morning Joe had a good laugh at the expense of Hillary Clinton’s director of communications Monday morning as she tried to explain the campaign’s use of a rope barrier. The moving rope line was used to keep the press away from Clinton at an Independence Day parade in Gorham, New Hampshire, over the weekend. […]

What’s Wrong with the Other 30 Percent?

Monday, July 6th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

This just in from Information Central: Nearly three quarters of Americans believe the news media reports with an intentional bias, according to a new survey. The 2015 State of the First Amendment Survey, conducted by the First Amendment Center and USA Today, was released Friday. It shows that only 24 percent of American adults agree with […]

Confederate Flag Flop: Public Opinion Remains Unchanged From Where It Was 15 Years Ago

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015 - by Debra Heine

The latest polling shows that most Americans still view the Confederate flag as a symbol of Southern pride as opposed to racism — an opinion that has not significantly changed in 15 years. After the last couple of weeks of anti-Confederate hysteria, you don’t have to be a fan of the rebel battle flag to […]

‘No Bombshells’: Stephanopoulos and Co. Dismiss Latest Batch of Hillary Emails (Video)

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 - by Debra Heine

The Good Morning America news crew on Wednesday dismissed the latest batch of Clinton emails to be released, asserting that there are no bombshells among them.

Bob Beckel Fired From Fox News

Thursday, June 25th, 2015 - by Debra Heine

The Five’s resident liberal Bob Beckel has been officially let go by Fox News after a four-month hiatus, and former Congressman Anthony Weiner has expressed interest in replacing him. Mediaite reported: Best-known as the salty liberal panelist on Fox’s hit midday talk show The Five, Beckel has been off-the-air since February 16. His absence was surrounded by […]

Chris Cuomo Establishes Himself as Most Hacktastic MSM Partisan During Carson Interview (VIDEO)

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

This is tiresome, but predictable. GOP candidates are forever being hounded to answer for other Republicans. It isn’t just because there are so many Republicans running this year, it’s standard operating procedure for a media class that long ago became the mouthpiece for the DNC. That transition, of course, was facilitated by media outlets hiring […]

As Predicted, Media Ignores Gruber Email Bombshell

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015 - by Debra Heine

Yesterday White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the Gruber story was not a “bombshell,” so the mainstream media chose to move on to more important stories like Caitlyn Jenner’s Father’s Day pic and the president’s use of the N-word. ABC News did a segment on Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner’s Father’s Day picture with his family…but couldn’t […]

Megyn Kelly Joins Kevin Spacey to Produce White House TV Drama

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

via The Hollywood Reporter: Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti have inked a first-look deal between their Trigger Street shingle, 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television Studios — and the first project they’re developing is a doozy. The Resident, which reads like a cross between Downton Abbey and House of Cards, follows the relationships […]

WARNING: Skinny Jeans Will Kill You

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015 - by Liz Sheld

Well, not exactly but close. It looks like we have a new member for the ever-expanding “things that are bad for you club” and that member is the “skinny jean.” If you don’t know what “skinny jeans” are, here is an example: They are skinny and they are jeans. Hipsters like to wear them. Doctors […]

Obama Drops the N-Word During Podcast About Racism

Monday, June 22nd, 2015 - by Bridget Johnson

President Obama dropped the N-word during a podcast with comedian Marc Maron, sparking controversy not only about his use of the word but how media outlets should run it. Obama was the guest on Maron’s “WTF” broadcast, where the two talked about racism in the United States from the podcast host’s L.A. garage. “Racism, we […]

Monday, June 22nd, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

  A series of Associated Press photos from a 2nd Amendment event in Iowa on Saturday appear to show Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with a gun pointed at his head.

Brian Williams Off the Nightly News, But Destined for Fun New Role at NBC

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by Bridget Johnson

Tall-tale NBC anchor Brian Williams won’t be getting his anchor chair back, but will be staying at his network. Reports CNN: NBC and Williams have come to a tentative agreement that will keep Williams at the network after his six-month suspension ends in August. The decision, described by people with knowledge of the plan, ends […]

Leaked Doc Reveals: Pope Enraged Over Climate Change, Calls for Redistribution of Wealth

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

For those still unconvinced that the current pope was raised under a Soviet-inspired pro-socialist climate, the UK Independent reports: Pope Francis warned that the world is heading for “unprecedented destruction” unless mankind confronts climate change and reforms the way it treats the planet, as the most eagerly anticipated papal document in living memory was leaked. In […]

Jewish Americans Prefer Netanyahu to Obama in Latest Poll

Monday, June 15th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

As the Mad Voter Roger L. Simon contemplates whether or not Michael Oren’s new book will change the Jewish vote, the latest J Street poll shows that Obama’s latest attempts to “woo” the Jewish community have had zero impact. Despite a less-than-schmoozy synagogue visit and the interviews granted to the usual Jewish suspects, the president’s approval […]

[VIDEO] Megyn Kelly Has Two Exquisite Words for the Gender-Language Police

Thursday, June 11th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

During a segment with Brian Kilmeade on The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly unloaded on the PC gender-language bullies who are trying to impose gender-neutral — or in some cases, feminist-supremacist — language on Americans. The latest is an effort by a tech startup to ban the term “you guys” because it represents “creeping sexism.” […]

LeftMedia in Dire Need of a Thesaurus and an American Government Class

Thursday, June 11th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

It’s “HOSTAGE!” time again. Here’s the headline from HuffPo today: GOP Readies New Obamacare Hostage Plan As Supreme Court Drama Builds Since the summer of 2010, the unimaginative and always frightened little intellectual chihuahuas in the MSM have used the word “hostage” whenever Republicans in Congress have used, or threatened to use, whatever legislative means […]

Perry Is In

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 - by Leslie Loftis

Recall in 2011, political watchers had expected Rick Perry to enter the race weeks before he announced. The media started touting their objections early. At the time I was in London blogging as an expat and I wrote an explainer post about the objections. Most of that old post holds up well. Those issues are still relevant, […]

New York Times ‘Reporter’ Who Can’t Tell a ‘Luxury Speedboat’ from a Fishing Boat Upset that People Think He’s an Idiot

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

You mad, bro? Not enough hours in the day to block hateful people on Twitter. But 24 is a start. — Michael Barbaro (@mikiebarb) June 10, 2015   For the second time in a week, the New York Times made an attempt to do some damage and, once again, it was a spectacular failure. Barbaro […]

Reuters: GOP Field Too Diverse for Ted Cruz to ‘Catch Fire’ with Latinos

Friday, June 5th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

My, how times have changed. In a less diverse Republican presidential field, Ted Cruz, the make-good son of a Cuban immigrant, would be viewed more for what he is – a candidate with a legitimate shot at making U.S. history as the nation’s first Latino president in 2016. Instead, the senator from Texas finds himself […]

MSNBC Guest: Dem Base Not Cheering Hillary Because She Isn’t Saying What They Want to Hear (VIDEO)

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

“When the only thing going up for you is your unfavorability rating, that’s not a good thing for somebody who so many people already know.” Also note that Big Ed plays the Fauxcahontas card to kick it off.

More Revolving Media-Government Complex Doors: Obama Crony to CNN

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

Yeah, I know. What a shock: Dan Pfeiffer, a long-time top aide to President Barack Obama, is joining CNN as a contributor, network president Jeff Zucker announced Monday. The 39-year-old Pfeiffer is a Wilmington, Delaware, native and a graduate of Georgetown University. His first presidential campaign role came in a communications post for then-Vice President Al […]

Bob Schieffer Says ‘Maybe’ Press Wasn’t Skeptical Enough Regarding Obama in ’08

Monday, June 1st, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Ya don’t say. CBS’ Bob Schieffer says that perhaps reporters in the media “were not skeptical enough” of President Barack Obama as a presidential candidate in 2008, telling Fox News’ Howard Kurtz that the whole political world was struck by the sudden rise of the senator from Illinois. This isn’t some revelation that Schieffer just […]

More Millennials Trust Al Jazeera Over Breitbart

Monday, June 1st, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

A Pew Survey on overall trust and distrust of news agencies across the generations (Baby Boomer/Gen-X/Millennial) should act as a sharp wake-up call for conservative media outlets. Pew was careful to include the caveat that trust and distrust rely on familiarity with the source itself, for example, pointing out that only 23% of Baby Boomers […]

News as Melodrama: ‘Unprecedented’ Flooding by ‘Monster Storm’

Friday, May 29th, 2015 - by Leslie Loftis

I am a native Houstonian. I have seen a fair share of flooding. This time, however, friends outside the state have sent a steady stream of worried messages. I gather from their worry that the news has presented the Memorial Day 2015 flood—we flood frequently enough that we name the events for ease of reference—as […]

Indiana Grandma Now ISIS Supporter ‘Jihad Kathie,’ Living and Inciting Violence in Germany

Thursday, May 28th, 2015 - by Patrick Poole

A 50-year-old grandmother from Indianapolis who was profiled by Fox News in 2010 is back in the news in Germany, where she now lives, for the open support she and her jihadist husband are showing for the Islamic State.

Even the Washington Post Isn’t Buying Hillary’s Spin on Ducking Press

Monday, May 18th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Awkward family time… With Hillary Clinton rapidly approaching a month since she answered a question from a reporter, her allies are working to push back on the idea that she is ducking the press. “PUTTING THE VOTERS FIRST, HILLARY ASKS THE QUESTIONS THAT REALLY MATTER,” read the subject line of an e-mail — ALL CAPS […]

(VIDEO) Legacy Media Democrat Mika Brzezinski Criticizes ABC’s Legacy Hiring of Stephanopolous

Monday, May 18th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

She may not have come directly from a Democratic administration into a “news” job, but she came from the loins of someone in a Democratic administration, which is the second easiest way to get a media job. She should be careful — her entire career is built upon a lack of judgment by her employers.

Sinking In Ratings Quicksand, MSNBC Hosts Begin Clamoring For Hillary’s Attention

Friday, May 15th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

The Little Commie Network That Couldn’t hit a ten year low on Wednesday, to the chagrin of almost no one outside of New York, or Washington, D.C. Desperate for any kind of attention now, its hosts are violating the Prime Directive about protecting Mrs. Bill from any unsavory interaction with the commoners and/or the media. […]
