Media Bias

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 […]

Harry Reid on Cancer Trials for Children, ‘Why would we want to do that?’

Since the Democrats have shut down the government, they are blocking all attempts to re-open it that doesn’t give them everything they want.  Even if it means that children don’t cancer treatment.  Steve, at America’s Watchtower, has more…   Harry Reid was pressed on this issue by Dana Bash and, as he is not used to being pressed on an issue by the mainstream media, in the heat of the moment he said something quite revealing.   Here is what went down: ‘If you can help one child, why won’t you do it?’ asked CNN reporter Dana Bash. ‘Why, why, why would we […]

Obama, Reid, Shut Down Government: Media Set to Lie

No, that’s not a typo.  It’s certainly NOT what the MSM is going to tell you but last night the Democrats refused to negotiate with the GOP controlled House, and is therefore shutting down the government.  Let me stress the following…. The GOP controlled House offered three continuing resolutions that would have keep the doors at government open.  Harry Reid refused to allow votes on two, and the Democrat controlled Senate voted down another.  The Democrats refused to negotiate.  Larry Jackson, for Political Realities, sums it up nicely… The Republicans are not being unreasonable in trying to pass a Continuing […]

Some Quick Facts and Thoughts on The OMG! Government Shutdown

I just have some quick thoughts on the government shutdown, and the stupid political theater that I detest.  So, here is some stream of consciousness… 1.  I really hate agreeing with the GOP Stupid Party, but they are doing real good in terms of trying to delay or defund ObamaCare.  The law is hurting people already, it’s only going to hurt more once fully implemented. 2.  In a sense, they are helping the Democrats.  If the law takes effect, and the exchanges aren’t ready, the computer systems fail, and people’s information is stolen, the Democrats will pay dearly in the […]

Racial Violence Update: Des Moines Man Beaten to Death by Three Blacks, Al Sharpton, MSM Silent

In another case of racial violence, three blacks are accused of beating a Des Moines man, Richard Daughenbaugh.  He was 40.  The Clash Daily has more… Three 18-year-old men have been charged with murder in the beating death of a Des Moines man last weekend. Yarvon Nathaniel Russell, 18, James Alon Shorter, 18, and Kent Anthony Tyler III, 18, all of Des Moines, were charged Friday with first-degree murder. Russell has been arrested and is being held in Polk County Jail on a $500,000 bond. Shorter was taken into custody by Des Moines police and a warrant has been issued […]

Rachel Maddow has Even Less Viewers, Ratings Down Nearly 50% From Same Time Last Year

“Worst ratings ever,” says Weasel Zippers… Via WFB: MSNBC’s ratings tumble continued with a poor August showing, with some programs seeing nearly a 50-percent drop in viewership from a year ago, TV Newser reports. Among the lowlights were the worst showings yet by its leading program The Rachel Maddow Show, with 43 percent and 47 percent drops in total viewers and the 25-54 demographic, respectively, and 40- and 42-percent drops in the same areas for The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell. [...] In primetime, “The Rachel Maddow Show” posted all-time low ratings in total and demo viewers, down -43% and -47%, respectively. “The Last […]

Has MSNBC Turned on #FreeKate?

I’m going to say this for the first time in my life, and it will likely be the last… I agree with something that was said on MSNBC. In fact, I agree with an ENTIRE SEGMENT that was broadcast on MSNBC. And yes, surprisingly, the Earth has not been flung off it’s axis, but dang, MSNBC engaged in a random act of real journalism, and actually told the truth.  Take a look for yourself! Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy     […]

Never Believe “Official” Crowd Estimates

Remember when the Tea Parties got going in the Spring on ’09?  Remember how there would be thousands, or even tens of thousands of people there, and the MSM would say “dozens?”  Remember how the MSM would cover Obama campaign 2012 events by only showing tight shot on Obama-because the place was half empty?   Remember how Glenn Beck filled the National Mall twice, and the MSM severely downplayed the attendance?     If you do, you know that the MSM cannot be trusted for anything, let alone crowd estimates for political events.   Well, when the right was being truthful, and provided […]

Racial Violence: Revisiting the Case of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom, National Media Ignored Horrific Murder

The following story was so poorly covered, that even most Conservative Bloggers (including mysell) missed it.  However, since the Trayvon Martin case was so misrepresented by the MSM and the racism industry I thought we might cover the case of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom in a factual manner.  Call it my version of equal time, where I take a liberal lie, and counter it with reality. Don’t know who Channon Christian and Chris Newson are, or were?  Well, that’s not a surprise, as the national media did not decide to knowledge that it even happened.  They were a young […]

Black Teen Strangles White Child, Al Sharpton, National Media Silent

The apparent double standard for racist violence continues.  When George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in self defense, it set off a hypocritical and hyperbolic reaction.  Being guilty of being “black,” and that Trayvon Martin was ruthlessly “hunted down” were put out, and never challenged by the media.  However, had George Zimmerman simply done his Politically Correct  duty, and allowed himself to be beaten to death, the story wouldn’t have seen the light of day.  How do I know this?  It’s simple-in terms of interracial violence, blacks attack, rob, and kill whites in far greater numbers than in the reverse.  And, […]
