Bloomberg’s Halperin Reveals He’s A Racist And Ted Cruz Is The Real Deal

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and David Limbaugh at Right Wing News.   Cruz has that Reagan-esque quality to be unflappable when the Lefties in the MSM try to tear him down.   If you like arrogant, condescending, rude, insolent and patronizing Beltway journalism, you may appreciate Halperin’s performance. If you are a person of ordinary sensibilities, however, and not so intoxicated with the leftist worldview that you are incapable of dispassionately assessing the segment, you will have a different reaction. What first struck me about the interview was not so much the objectively asinine questions Halperin asked but […]

Transparency – Schmancparency: The White House Press Corp Is Sick Of Obama

  Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. But he did actually say that…….once…..long ago…. So how’s that “Hope and Change” workin’ out for you? I didn’t think so, and the even the White House Press Corp isn’t buying it, either. For far too long, the “most transparent administration ever” has kept the press at arm’s length, refusing to allow access to President Barack Obama and feeding the media select morsels to appease their appetite. All of that may be coming to an end soon, or at least to a head, now that the White House Correspondent’s Association has grown tired of playing […]

Rolling Stone to Retract Fake Rape Story, No Disciplinary Measures for Staff that Perpetrated Said Hoax

H/T: Weasel Zippers It seems that Rolling Stone, months after holes (big enough to drive a truck through) were poked through the alleged rape case that was said to have occurred at the University of Virginia. Via Yahoo news The author of Rolling Stone’s discredited “A Rape on Campus” story, Sabrina Rubin Erderly, will apologize Sunday in conjunction with the release of the Columbia Journalism School’s external review of the erroneous story, according to media reports. Rolling Stone will also pull the story from its site and put Columbia’s review in its place, Brian Stelter reported Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable […]

Lefty media death spiral update: Fox News outdraws MSNBC and CNN combined

Will MSNBC’s last viewer please change the channel? Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for MSNBC, along came the quarterly ratings reports. In both daytime and prime time, MSNBC endured its lowest quarterly demo numbers in a decade, and its total viewership since the final quarter of 2007. Prime-time viewership was down 45 percent in the demo from the first quarter of 2014, while daytime viewership was down 39 percent in the demo. Between the hours of 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Monday, for instance, more people were watching Al Jazeera America than MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, […]

Eureka! Univision Discovers Cruz Has Latino Support

  Hat/Tip to Ken Oliver-Méndez at NewsBusters. Don’t let MSNBC know about this. Oh wait. They’d just edit it out… Lo and behold, there are Latinos who support Senator Ted Cruz’s candidacy for President of the United States. That was the discovery Univision made while covering the Texas Senator’s presidential campaign announcement at Liberty University. Reporting for Noticiero Univisión, correspondent Lourdes Meluzá noted that among others, Cruz aims to capture the support of Evangelical voters, including among the young. Meluzá encountered two such prospective voters of Latino origin, both of whom were enthusiastic at the prospect of a Cruz presidency. The first […]

Former NBC Reporter: Journalists Have Taken Sides, Political Coverage Has All The Depth Of Twitter

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Another one has left the fold… Former NBC reporter Lisa Meyers tells The Des Moines Register the quality of television journalism is going downhill and that reporters have picked sides. Meyers is scheduled to give a talk in Des Moines on Thursday, and told the Register, “I am going to talk about the deterioration in the quality of journalism you see on TV. There is less and less interest in network television today holding the White House or any other part of government accountable.” Meyers said she believes newscasts are catering to an audience thought to care […]

Class Act: David Axelrod Goes On Fox News To Sell His Book, Then Goes On ABC To Bash Fox News

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico. Ah the impeccable scruples of the left… Sure! I’d be glad to go onto YOUR network so that I could sell some of MY books!! Then, after you’ve treated me fairly, I’ll go on a “friendly” network and trash YOUR network so I don’t look so bad to all the other “scrupulous” lefties out there that are just like me. Class act all the way, Axe. /sarcasm off Fox News host Bill O’Reilly called Democratic political adviser David Axelrod “two-faced” for using O’Reilly’s show to sell his new book, then insulting Fox News Channel soon afterward. […]

CNN: Belief In American Exceptionalism Makes Us “Dumb”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This article begs the question, “Can CNN get any dumber?” Talk of American exceptionalism has become headline news, with loud sputtering from Rudy Giuliani, who suggested that President Barack Obama doesn’t love America in the same way that the rest of us do. Giuliani wants to dwell on our exceptionalism — the idea that we’re different from other countries, and much better. It’s an old idea that Obama took on in the second year of his presidency, when he said: “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and […]

The Next Round In “CNN Wants To Become MSNBC”: Don’t Bomb ISIS Because They “Want Us To”

Hat/Tip to Jarred Stone at WeaselZippers. Yes, you read that right. The cowardly terrorists which make up the ISIS ranks really WANT us to come and bomb them to smithereens! They NEED it because, well….er….honestly, you’ll have to ask CNN’s Sally Kohn because I’m too much of a Conservative to delve down to the depths of stupidity to properly answer that question. But no worries, Ms. Kohn is CNN’s resident expert on ISIS and why they want, nay NEED us to bomb them. /facepalm One of the self-described “leading progressive voices in America,” CNN commentator and DailyBeast columnist Sally Kohn, […]

NY Post: Brian Williams Could Be Fired Under ‘Morals’ Clause In Contract

    Hat/Tip to Drew MacKenzie at Newsmax. Even though he’s been shot down in not one but TWO helicopters, even though he saw one of his “sisters and brothers” float by in the French Quarter after Katrina, even though he got dysentery from flood waters of Katrina, even though he was pinned down in a 5 star hotel by roving gangs and saved by a police officer that he is friends with to this day, even though he “flew into Baghdad with SEAL Team 6,” even though he was at the Brandenburg Gate the night the Berlin Wall came […]

Top Military Brass Demand NBC Apologize On-Air For Calling Chris Kyle A “Racist” Who Went On “Killing Sprees”

Hat/Tip to Paul Bedard at The Washington Examiner. Back in January we covered the story of how once again, NBC has lowered it’s standards and allowed one of their employees to levy charges of racism and serial murder on one of America’s finest, that of Navy SEAL Sniper, Chris Kyle. MSNBC Does It Again: Reporter Calls Chris Kyle “Racist” Who Went On “Killing Sprees” In that article, we reported that Middle East field reporter, Ayman Mohyeldin said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program that Chris Kyle was a “racist” that went on “killing sprees.” It has come to light that Mr. Mohyeldin’s […]

NBC Just Sunk Lower: Brian Williams Admits He’s Lied For 12 Years About Being Fired Upon In Iraq

Hat/Tip to BFH at My how the once proud peacock, NBC has fallen since joining forces with MSNBC. The mediocrity and political desperation of MSNBC seems to have rubbed off onto their Mother station… Dbag Brian Williams Commits Stolen Valor I think it’s valid to call this stolen valor because there is a long tradition of the press risking their lives in war theaters. Brian Williams has overstated, much like the liar Hillary Clinton, that a helicopter he was in was in imminent danger, saying that it was struck by an RPG and forced down. No such thing ever […]

MSNBC Does It Again: Reporter Calls Chris Kyle “Racist” Who Went On “Killing Sprees”

Hat/Tip to John Nolte at The same network who brought you, on Memorial Day weekend, Chris Hayes saying he was troubled by the term “fallen heroes” when speaking about US military personnel killed in the line of duty. Now we’ve got a reporter named Ayman Mohyeldin who decided to take it upon himself to label Chris Kyle a racist who, instead of serving his country, went on “killing sprees.” Editor’s Note: What a tool. Transcript via Newsbusters: MOHYELDIN: A lot of his stories when he was back home in Texas, a lot of his own personal opinions about what […]

Sharyl Attkisson Testifies: DOJ ‘Bullied And Threatened’ Her For Telling Truth

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Sharyl Attkisson rose to fame, in the journalist’s world, anyway, as a tough-as-nails, call it down the middle, let the story lead her to the truth, Investigative Journalist. She’s done stories on government and its various administrations – both Democrat AND Republican throughout her entire 30+ year career. And the left was fine with that, when it was the GOP she was digging dirt up on, but since 2008, the push back by the thin-skinned Obama administration and their sycophants in the Main Stream Media shows they’ve no tolerance for any such reporting. Attkisson […]

MSNBC Plays The Race Card Again, This Time On Bobby Jindal

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Unreal what MSNBC can get away with. Via Free Beacon: Lean forward? MSNBC upped the ante in their quest to attack Republicans on Monday when a guest made a racially charged attack on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal on Monday. Governor Jindal is in London this week where he is addressing the Henry Jackson Society. Governor Jindal publicly denounced “no-go zones.” MSNBC’s Alex Wagner had Arsalan Iftikhar, founder of, on to discuss Governor Jindal’s comments. “I think Governor Jindal is protesting a bit too much. He might be trying to scrub some of the brown off […]

Since Dispute With Fox, Dish Network Has Lost 90,000 Subscribers

Hat/Tip to File this one under, “Underestimating Your Customers’ Wishes”. Dish Network is bleeding customers right and left since deciding to stop carrying the Fox News Channel. Thousands of TV viewers have proven they’re more loyal to Fox News than to the Dish network, following a dispute between the TV provider and political news channel. Since Dish removed Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network on Dec. 20, the provider has lost about 90,000 subscribers. What began as a contract dispute, is turning out to be quite harmful to Dish Network. Dish CEO Charlie Ergen in a Christmas Eve video […]

Irrational Exuberance In Action: The 5% GDP Growth Number Is A Total Fraud

  Look! Just in time for Christmas! That Obama guy finally got our economy back on track! Now get out there and spend, spend, spend! At least that’s what the media wants you to believe. The U.S. economy roared into overdrive in the third quarter as consumer and business spending fueled the biggest expansion in more than a decade. Gross domestic product grew at a 5 percent annual rate from July through September, the biggest advance since the third quarter of 2003 and up from a previously estimated 3.9 percent, revised figures from the Commerce Department showed today in Washington. […]

Well MSNBC We’ve Got Good News And Bad News…

  Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. The Good News? Megyn Kelly and Fox News will be having a very happy Christmas. The Bad News? MSNBC has now been viewed by fewer people than airport radar and sonograms. – Source Even CNN is doing better than MSNBC. It was just revealed that the liberal MSNBC network is facing dismal ratings, and not even the recent midterm election coverage could give it a necessary boost. According to Accuracy in Media, viewership of the leftist channel is down 13% from last year to November 2014. The low numbers mean that MSNBC is now trailing […]
