Reuters and Yahoo News Report on Obama’s Trip to the Border that NEVER Happened

Hat/Tip to Robert Laurie at CainTV. Obama doesn’t like photo-ops?? No problem! Obama doesn’t go down to view the chaos he’s created?? So what? Who needs to bother when you’ve got the Praetorian Media to cover for you? Despite the admonitions which came from politicians, media figures, and wonks on every side of the aisle, President Obama did not visit the border.  He played pool, had a beer, turned down some weed, and met with Rick Perry, but he did not go to the scene of the crisis he’s manufactured. There was just too much donor cash at stake and – as […]

Time Columnist Joe Klein Savages CNN, Calls Fox ‘Only Option’ For Straight News At 6

Hat/Tip to the DailyCaller.com for this one. It’s a breath of fresh air from an arena that is so stale, donuts don’t last a half hour… The Main Stream Media in this country is largely made up of leftists to some degree. CNN is no exception, but it was a surprise to hear Time Columnist Joe Klein rip CNN  a new one recently. Time magazine columnist Joe Klein called CNN “an embarrassment to our profession,” surprising a New York City audience on Sunday by declaring Fox News “the only option” for straight news at 6 p.m. Hardly a rabid right-winger, […]

Cliven Bundy’s remarks, what his black bodyguard thinks and the dishonesty over at Media Matters

As you can tell by the long title of this Op-Ed, I have a lot of ground to cover and since I don’t want this to become a 1,000 word essay, here goes! Cliven Bundy’s remarks about Black people have got the left turning themselves into a pretzel to try and justify the BLM’s heavy handed tactics. But what did he say, exactly? In short, he said that he wondered if the Negroes (his choice of word) were better off post slavery. He cited their poor socioeconomic status, high incarceration rate, lack of family structure and high abortion rates. What […]

NY Times Reporter Admits Main Stream Media Bias on National TV during Jeopardy Gameshow!

It’s no surprise to the many loyal readers of CH2.0 that there is main stream media bias by the liberals. What is surprising is when a member of the “elite” media admits publicly that he treats politicians differently, depending on what letter follows their name. “I’ll take ‘Explicit Media Bias” for $500, Alex.” On the April 23 “Jeopardy,” a reporter for The New York Times actually admitted that it was part of his job to “annoy” Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). The admission came as a question under the category “Man of the House” about House Representatives. In the video question, […]

Anti-Gun Democrat State Senator, Leland Yee, Accused of Weapons Trafficking: MSM Silent

What happens when a democrat, who is a gun grabber, get’s arrested for weapons trafficking? Well, many things happen, but MSM coverage is not one of them.  American Glob has more… You see, Leland Yee is a pro gun control Democrat who has been accused of bribery, fraud, corruption and trying to sell guns and rocket launchers to enemies of the United States. For obvious reasons, the media has absolutely no interest in this story. Glenn Reynolds explains why… CNN, home (also until last week) of Piers Morgan, whom Yee had praised for his anti-gun activism, didn’t report the story […]

MSNBC Show Featuring Ronan Farrow Loses in Ratings to a Golden Girls Rerun

The last first run episode of the Golden Girls ran in 1992.  However, it still has more viewers than MSNBC, or at least, Ronan Farrow’s show.  Weasel Zippers has more in Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC failure… Via NYDN: Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l. Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered […]

Piers Morgan Gets the Ax at CNN: And Nothing of Value was Lost

Piers Morgan, whose rants about guns undoubtably thrilled all three of his viewers, has reportedly parted ways with CNN.  Of course, nothing of value was lost.  CNN has given up on trying to make Piers Morgan the new Larry King after a three-year run and will pull the plug on the Briton’s 9 p.m. talk show, which has been finishing far behind rivals Megyn Kelly on Fox News Channel and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. According to Nielsen ratings from last week, “Piers Morgan Live” was seen nightly by just 270,000 viewers nationwide and only 50,000 people in the key advertising […]

According the NBC, Being Married with Children is an “Alternative Lifestyle”

When I say “Married with Children,” I am not invoking memories of Al Bundy, but to simply be married, when young, and having children, is considered an “alternative lifestyle.”  Here is more on this scandelous trend in getting married and having kids… Last night, NBC Washington tweeted out a link to a story about freestyle skiing halfpipe gold medalist David Wise: The link goes to a story on NBC headlined “David Wise’s alternative lifestyle leads to Olympic gold.” … So what could it be? Is he pangendered? Is he polygamous? Is he dwelling in a commune eating only raw foods? […]

Larry King’s Suggestion to CNN: Hire Spongebob!

Larry King was asked about improving CNN’s fortunes.  His answer, while in jest, says a great deal.  Lisa Graas has the details… Media Bistro: “CNN’s got problems,” [Larry King] said. “I don’t know what they’re going to do.” “Cartoons” he joked as advice for CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker. “Put ‘Spongebob’ on CNN— 24 hours— until a big story breaks. Then we break into ‘Spongebob,’ and go to the hurricane, and then back to ‘Spongebob.’” Frankly, I think having Spongebob on staff would increase the credibility of CNN immensely.  Of course, even the Teletubbies would do a great deal for […]

Welcome to Amerika, 2014!

Note: As I’ve been paying attention the rhetoric of the left, particularly the content in Common Core, I am again reminded of the old ABC miniseries, Amerika. Here is a modified version of a post I wrote about it in March of 2010… Every now and again, I refer to Obama’s version of our nation as “Amerika.” Given that the ObamaCare abomination has survived it’s first few hurdles, it might be a good time to revisit why I say that. In 1987, ABC ran a 12 hour miniseries called, “AMERIKA,” chronicling life in an America that was taken over by […]

Muslim Man Beheads Two Christians in New Jersey: Media Silent

We should always respect the religion of peace, as we are all told.  After all, they got a religious exception from ObamaCare.  When a Christian speaks Biblical truth about homosexuality, it becomes a national controversy.  Muslims KILL homosexuals all over the world, and it isn’t even a blip on the radar.  Even murdering Christians seems acceptable these days, with even President Obama sending funding and weapons to the Syrian Rebels al Qaeda, who massacres Christians at every turn. So, it probably should not be a surprise when a Muslim murders beheads Christians in New Jersey, and there is no mention […]

What Has Happened To The Once Mighty Peacock?

The executives and powers that be over at 30 Rockefeller Plaza have evidently never heard that old adage, when you find yourself in a hole – STOP DIGGING!! What has happened to the network that brought us such sterling news people as, Hugh Downs, Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert, David Brinkley, Jessica Savitch, John Chancellor and Stone Phillips? The list of NBC’s faux pas keeps growing and growing with each passing day, it seems. Let’s recap, shall we? (and these are just the ones this author remembers) * MSNBC television host Ed Shultz via his radio show – - calls radio […]

Liberal Talk Failing and Self Destructing in Major Liberal Markets

What does it say when liberal talk stations in major liberal markets are converting to other formats?  Besides the obvious schadenfreude, it means that liberal ideas are perhaps not as popular as advertised?  Truth Revolt has the details… 2014 will mark the beginning of a massive change for liberal talk radio across the country. In New York, WWRL 1600 AM will flip to Spanish-language music and talk, throwing Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes off the air. In Los Angeles, KTLK 1150 will be dumping Stephanie Miller, Rhodes, Bill Press and David Cruz off the air in […]

The Famous Mr. Ed

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, And no one can talk to a horse of course That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed. Go right to the source and ask the horse He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse. He’s always on a steady course. Talk to Mr. Ed. Once a horse’s ass, always a horse’s ass.  The Daley Gator elucidates: Suddenly, After Pimping Class Envy Rhetoric For Years, Ed Schultz Hates Class Envy Hypocrisy much Ed? The Angriest Man on TV™ gets paid big bucks for his act as a […]

MSNBC Panel: Obama a “Disappointment”

Someone must have been asleep at the switch in the control room at MSNBC.  They accidentally broadcast people being critical of Obama, most certainly causing severe nausea and cognitive dissonance among the three viewers that were tuned in at that time.  Chicks on the Right has more… I’m sure someone over there got a call form the administration to make their minds right, or to order someone lobotomized…or something like that.

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC: And Nothing of Value was Lost

In a move that will likely disappoint the several viewers that tune into MSNBC on a daily basis. Martin Bashir has submitted his resignation.  Schadenfreude commences over at The Other McCain… When you think about all the evil things the liberal media have said about Sarah Palin over the years, you know it took a special kind of stupid for Martin Bashir to say something so grossly offensive he had to resign from MSNBC because of it: “Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all […]

Want to see How Much the MSM Lied About ObamaCare? Plus, Extra Oral Spewage™ from Ed Schultz

Obama lied about his crowning achievement; ObamaCare.  This is so very well documented as to be unassailable.  However, we cannot neglect to mention that not only did Obama lie, but prominent democrats did as well.  In fact, some of them are still lying, and looking incredibly foolish in the process.  But, we cannot neglect the propaganda wing of our would-be regressive overlords-the MSM.  They have “carried the ball” for Obama, and all of his lies, including ObamaCare.  No discussion of the lies surrounding Obama’s chief “accomplishment” without discussing the MSM, and their lies in support of Obama’s lies. The Media […]

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Caught Using Doctored Footage

In the fine liberal tradition of altering footage to reinforce a false narrative, MSNBC took footage from the “Million Veteran March,” and cooked it extra special for the Rachel Maddow Show. Now, I really should just let that go, as no one is watching Rachel Maddow anyway, but you never know, someone you know just might have seen it.

Constitution is Problem, so Says Chris Hayes of MSNBC

Oh, that pesky separation of powers, limited government and freedom stuff all interfere with our nanny state!  That might as well be the translation, as Chris Hayes of MSNBC took to the camera, and spewed regressive nonsense at the handful of viewers that bother to watch. And they wonder why no one watches?

Al Jazeera Ratings Makes MSNBC Look Like a Juggernaut: Yes, it’s THAT Bad

If you recall, Glenn Beck wanted to buy Current TV, Al Gore’s failed TV Network, but was told that it didn’t match their values.  However, selling it to a Muslim network, Al Jazeera, was just fine.  And, what has Al Jazeera done?  Almost worse than nothing, if ratings are going to be your judge… Al Jazeera America, which had hoped to challenge the major cable news networks, is falling on its face, based on last week’s ratings, in which some shows didn’t record a single viewer in the key 25-54 demographic. The network, which was purchased from Al Gore in […]
