Tuesday, August 25th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

If the tweet fits… ESPN has suspended Curt Schilling after the pitcher and network analyst tweeted, and subsequently deleted, a picture that compared Muslims to Nazis. “Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective,” ESPN said in a statement on Tuesday. “We made that point very strongly to Curt and […]

CNN Working Hard to Replace the New York Times as the Official Media Wing of the Democratic Party

Friday, August 21st, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

CNN wants to be clear that it doesn’t like any immigration policy that doesn’t conform to the Democrats’ vision of what immigration policy should be. In the past twenty-four hours, they’ve made sure to hit both men leading the GOP polls. First, they found a former Hillary Clinton aide to take a swing at Donald […]

Friday, August 21st, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Here is the headline: Walker rejects meeting with Black Lives Matter leaders Pretty harsh, huh? They offered to meet with him and he flat-out rejected them. At least that is what is clearly implied here. Well…maybe that’s not exaclty how it went. He was later asked if he would meet with representatives of Black Lives […]

Apocalypse Nigh: NBCUniversal Sinks $200 Million into BuzzFeed

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Via Techcrunch: If the news sounds a little familiar, that’s because Vox Media announced a similar deal with NBCUniversal last week.

Via IMRA: Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham on Thursday deplored US President’s recent anti-Iran remarks, saying that Barack Obama does not consider the realities inside Iran.

New York Times Upset that American Airstrikes Hit Human Shields Used by ISIS in Syria

Friday, August 14th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

“Monitoring groups” are upset.

The episode revived accusations by monitoring groups that the United States and its allies are not careful enough about who is killed […]

Friday, August 14th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

The inmates have the keys to the asylum. A Birmingham, Alabama, police detective who was pistol-whipped unconscious said Friday that he hesitated to use force because he didn’t want to be accused of needlessly killing an unarmed man. “A lot of officers are being too cautious because of what’s going on in the media,” said […]

Do We Care About Boys and Men?

Thursday, August 13th, 2015 - by Leslie Loftis

In the Trump drama after the Fox News GOP presidential candidates debate last week, the debriefs missed some of the acute problems that never made it into the debate at all. There is a commission to establish a National or a White House Council on Boys and Men. (Full disclosure: I am a member of […]

Bernie Trumps Trump …Among Christian Kids?

Monday, August 10th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Forget the showmanship apparent at last week’s Republican debates. The pomp, circumstance and condemnation of the Obama era has left millennial voters exhausted and ready to opt out of the 2016 election over a year ahead of schedule. And can you blame them? Primed by the vicious anti-W. demonstrations, millennials associate nothing but derision, deadlock […]

NPR Dutifully Runs Interference for Planned Parenthood by Repeating ’3 Percent’ Lie

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Nothing like one publicly funded organization “fact checking” another. Bush is right that Planned Parenthood receives $500 million a year in government funding — or, to be more exact, $528 million last year, according to Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report. That totals more than 40 percent of Planned Parenthood’s total $1.3 billion in revenue for […]

(VIDEO) George Will Coins the Perfect Phrase to Describe Obama’s Tenure: ‘Constitutional Vandalism’

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

We need to make this one stick. Face it kids, there are going to be a seemingly endless number of ways to negatively describe what’s been going on here once he leaves office. Let’s just thank Mr. Will for giving us a favorite this early.

Camille Paglia Unloads on Feminism, Bill Clinton at Salon and It’s Delicious

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

I’m a Paglia addict, which is why I’m so psyched for her 3-part interview series being released by Salon, liberal bastion that it is. Dear God, don’t let that turn you off. Read this lesbian atheist’s cultural commentary and you’ll find in it the seeds of the equity feminist movement (fancy lingo for the kind of women’s […]

Arab Media Justifies Attack on French Tourist at Al Aqsa Mosque

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

According to blogger Elder of Ziyon, the Arab media has jumped on the story of an “Israeli extremist” attempting to hoist an Israeli flag over the Dome of the Rock, aka the Temple Mount. Championing the Palestinian worshipers at the scene who attacked the man, the Arab media failed to report that he was not, […]

Despite Celebrity PR Campaign, New Poll Shows Americans Really, Really Don’t Like Iran Deal

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

It would appear that the American public isn’t quite ready to be fooled all of the time. Update: A new poll shows even worse numbers for the Iran deal. The Quinnipiac University poll shows 57 percent against and just 28 percent in support. The two-to-one negative split is by far the worst poll yet for […]

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 - by Bridget Johnson

White House press secretary Josh Earnest got challenged on the administration position regarding the Planned Parenthood videos this morning from an unlikely corner.

The People of Zimbabwe Too Poor, Too Hungry to Care About Cecil

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

The first question any logical person would pose upon hearing the Cecil the lion story should be along the lines of whether or not that lion meat (presuming it is edible) was used to feed the people of Zimbabwe. Too bad the story didn’t attract any logical people, those who might give two cents about […]

The Purge of the Viewer-less Begins: MSNBC Nukes Ed Schultz, Alex Wagner and ‘The Cycle’

Thursday, July 30th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of commies.

(VIDEO) Ernst: Funds Will Still Be Available for Women’s Health Services, Just Not for Planned Parenthood

Thursday, July 30th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

As mentioned in my earlier post, the libmedia loves to pretend that Planned Parenthood is the only place women can go for pap smears and other preventative health services. Sen. Ernst debunks that rather easily here.

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Via UPI: Three former members of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at the University of Virginia filed a defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone on Wednesday for a now-retracted article the magazine published about a gang rape.

The Hill Finds Romney Connection to Lion-Killer Story

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015 - by Debra Heine

The Hill published a Pulitzer-worthy scoop Wednesday, with the revelation of political donations made by the Minnesota dentist who killed a beloved lion in Zimbabwe.

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 […]

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 - by Debra Heine

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 […]
