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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

SooperMexican to the Rescue: Forcing the MSM to Correct a False McDonald’s Story

What happens when the MSM spreads a very false story regarding Mcdonald’s, their wages, and their prices? SooperMexican happens, that’s what. SooperMexican has waged a Twitter war on MSM outlets that have continued a false story that McDonald’s could double the pay for it’s workers while only increasing their prices by 17%.  It was, of course, a lie. Get over to SooperMexican’s place to see how he has extracted retractions from several sources! 

MSNBC Talking Head, Melissa Harris-Perry, States Islam Had Nothing to do Muslim Bombers

OK, the lefties wanted the Boston Marathon Bombers to be white, so they could use it as an example of racism and “privilege.”  Then, so they thought, they could use it to push their agenda.  In other words, they wanted to use a crime to smear all white people, and justify a massive federal power grab.  But, when the perpetrators turned out to be Muslims, race and religion are suddenly not relevant?  That’s the case, according the Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC.  The fact that they were Muslims, and that they older, deceased brother reportedly visited a radical imam SIX TIMES […]

Trifecta on The Boston Marathon Bombing: The Press Must Stop Blaming America

The Trifecta gang’s  take on the Boston Marathon Bombing is quite insightful, as always… I can’t add a single thing to it, other than  to ask why Bill Whittle doesn’t have his own show on some news channel? You can support the CH 2.0 with your Amazon purchases!

Media Bias: Media Never Reported That Oregon Mall Shooting Stopped by Armed Citizen

While the country was in a state of shock over the events at the Sandy Hook school shooting, the MSM was crying for gun control   In fact, they were doing so when even the earliest reports of that shooting were coming out.  However, they had an earlier shooting that very week, at an Clackamas, Oregon shopping mall.  However the MSM left an important aspect of that shooting out- that the shooting was stopped after an armed citizen pulled his weapon on the shooter.  Here is the video… Isn’t it interesting that the MSM left this out of their coverage?  Or, […]

Time Warp: What Would the MSM Have Looked Like in 1943?

What would our MSM have looked like in 1943?  Something like this, via Free North Carolina… Come to think of it, didn’t the regressives of the 30’s really like the fascist dictators? Why yes, yes they did.

Newsweek to Cease Publishing: And Nothing of Value was Lost

Today, Tina Brown, the head of Newsweek and the Daily Beast, announced that the long time magazine would stop publishing, and be a fully on-line entity.   Here is part of her announcement… We are announcing this morning an important development at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. Newsweek will transition to an all-digital format in early 2013. As part of this transition, the last print edition in the United States will be our Dec. 31 issue. Meanwhile, Newsweek will expand its rapidly growing tablet and online presence, as well as its successful global partnerships and events business. Newsweek Global, as the all-digital publication […]

Should we Expect Democratic Plants at the CNN Presidential Debate?

CNN is hosting the next  Presidential debate, which is a town hall format.  However, the host, as well as the format should provide the Romney campaign with some caution, as CNN allowed Democratic “plants” to pose as  alleged independents back in 2007.  Michelle Malkin has the details, as well as the history… But Crowley is already making noises that she plans to circumvent the agreed-upon rules and take control: In a rare example of political unity, both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how the moderator of this Tuesday’s town hall has publicly described her role, TIME has […]

Did the mainstream media’s bias contribute towards President Obama’s terrible debate performance?

Oh fudge… We all know the mainstream media is in the tank for President Obama; but did their bias and unwillingness to ask the tough questions throughout his Presidency contribute towards the President’s terrible debate performance? Looking at the debate from a slightly different angle I believe it did.  In an effort to shield President Obama from the impact his terrible economic policies has had on America the mainstream media has not only done themselves and the American people a great disservice, but they may have unknowingly sabotaged the President’s debate performance last night. By not holding the President’s feet […]

George Zimmerman to Sue NBC Over Selectively Edited 911 Recording

In a very interesting development, George Zimmerman is suing NBC for selectively editing the 911 tape from the night that Trayvon Martin was killed. Here is the CH 2.0 coverage from that time… NBC can’t seem to stay out of the propaganda game.  They were, once again, caught with their grubby hands in the selective editing jar, and my are they so sorry… For being caught, that is. “During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret,” NBC News said in a statement e-mailed to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. “We […]
