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 IOTWReport.com. 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 Breitbart.com. 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 TheMuslimGuy.com, 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 TownHall.com. 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 […]

Must See Video: ABC Reporter Retires, Tells Of Obama Cursing Out White House Press Corps

Hat/Tip to C-Span. In a recent interview with C-Span, retiring ABC News Reporter, Ann Compton has shed some light on the real Obama. Some quotes from her interview: “Barack Obama likes campaigning. I am not sure that he is enjoying governing with the same gusto.” “I have seen, in the last year, Barack Obama really angry, twice. Both were off the record times, one profanity laced.” “I think most presidents have been more forthcoming than the second Obama term, in terms of what the President is doing every day.” “This particular administration had been more opaque than any I had […]

Surprise! The Media Has Spent More Time On GOP Staffer Comments Than On The Gruber Scandal…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Let’s see. The architect of ObamaCare lies to the American people – Nah! That’s not news! Some unknown GOP staffer makes stupid statements on her Facebook page – Now THAT’S news!!! Via Newsbusters: On Sunday and Monday, the broadcast networks seized on the personal Facebook comments of mid-level congressional staffer Elizabeth Lauten criticizing the Obama daughters – devoting over 14 minutes of national news air time to the controversy in the period of two days. However, it took those same networks several days to even notice the video comments of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber crediting “the […]

Five Year Old White Girl Killed By Two Black Males While Sitting On Her Grandfather’s Lap: Where’s The Outrage?

Hat/Tip to Wounded American Warrior and Top Conservative News. She was described by her aunt as a “wild child” who always happy, loved life and recently told her aunt that she “loved her more than science”. Butterflies, glitter and the movie Frozen were among her favorite things. Her name was Laylah Peterson, and she was murdered in her home, while sitting upon her grandfather’s lap. Laylah was a little white girl and her two killers are black males. Why do I inject race into this story? Because after all the #Ferguson tweets, Facebook postings and news coverage where, despite all the […]

CNN Accidentally Aired THE Most Inaccurate And Embarrassing Banner OF ALL TIME

Hat/Tip to Joshua Riddle at Young Conservatives and Twitchy. Since the absolute drubbing the Democratic Party, and Progressives in general, took in the 2014 Midterm Elections, it is easy to see how so many on the left are having problems focusing on their jobs. Or at least that seems to be the case over at CNN…   Wow the SEALs are out of control pic.twitter.com/g0F9Dvidbh — Jon Passantino (@passantino) November 8, 2014 Ohh CNN. Facepalm RT@passantino: Wow the SEALs are out of control pic.twitter.com/Ihra76WV0K — Brandon Stahl (@BrandonStahl1) November 8, 2014     .@passantino @Popehat NOW WE DONT HAVE A […]

Full Interview: Sharyl Attkisson, Former CBS Reporter Says Obama Has An Enemies’ List

Hat/Tip to Paul Bond at The Hollywood Reporter. Investigative Journalist, Sharyl Attkisson left CBS after her bosses lost their appetite for any story that would hurt, or even show the Obama Administration in a bad light. In this interview, she talks about an unknown government agency hacking into her computer, her bosses choice to bury her stories, their penchant for labeling any analyst they didn’t agree with as Conservative Analysts and all others as just Analysts, the trend from the MSM’s desire to air stories negative to Republican administrations to their fear of doing so to the Obama administration, and […]

Ex-CBS Reporter’s Book Reveals How Liberal Media Protects Obama

Hat/Tip to Kyle Smith at New York Post. For over 6 years now most Americans have come to understand that the MSM (Main Stream Media) have been more than arbiters of the truth. They have been, in many cases complete shills for the current administration. From giving Barack Obama softball questions, to gushing at his “greatness”, to actually ditching stories that they thought would hurt him, the MSM has been complicit in the degradation and, yes, socialization of this country. You can think back to the editor of Newsweek, Evan Thomas calling Obama a “God” – “Obama is ‘we are […]

State-Run Media Circling the Drain: MSNBC Has Lower Ratings Than Reruns of “Shark Tank”

  For the past 3 months reruns of “Shark Tank” beat out every show on MSNBC. Oh, and Fox News is still #1. No one would say the summer of 2014 suffered any shortage of breaking news. From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams’ and Joan Rivers’ sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched prime time across all of cable […]
