Media Bias

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 […]

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 […]
