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 […]

Media Bias: Administration Knew That Libya Attack Was Planned, Only ABC Covers it

Imagine, if you will, that our ambassador to Libya was killed. Then, imagine that the administration blamed the attack on a “spontaneous protest” over a YouTube video that no one watched. And, just to make it more interesting, let’s add that the Libyan government came out and said that it was a planned terrorist attack, and that they had warned the administration that it was coming…in advance of the attack. Imagine that security, in Libya, or anywhere else, was not increased. Imagine that the MSM played ball and used the death of our ambassador to Libya in order to attack […]

Media Distrust at an all-time High: A Look Inside the Numbers

What happens when a poll is taken showing the level of trust in the media?  We see a clue to the outcome in november.  The Rand Paul Review has the following, from Gallup… More broadly, Republicans continue to express the least trust in the media, while Democrats express the most. Independents’ trust fell below the majority level in 2004 and has continued to steadily decline. OK then, we see that the Democrats in the sample trust the media to the tune of 58%.  That is predictable, as the media cheer leads for the Democrats.  Also, we see the Republican figure is remarkably low, at […]

DOJ Used Media Matters as a Propaganda Arm: Anyone Surprised?

We all know what Media Matters is.  It’s a Soros funded smear machine meant to spread regressive propaganda, as well as attack anyone that opposed the regressive agenda.  Then, we the Daily Caller obtained emails between Media Matters personell and DOJ, is wasn’t at all surprised. Here is an excerpt from the DC… Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request. (RELATED: TheDC’s complete coverage of Media […]

MSM Caught on Open Mike: Coordinate Against Mitt Romney

It seems that the MSM will go to great lengths to take a shot at Mitt Romney, even if they have to coordinate on questions.  Candidate Romney issued a rather strong statement regarding the Obama Administration and the recent attack on the US Embassy in Libya.  The MSM reporters conspired to attack him for it.  The Right Scoop has the transcript… UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: …pointing out that the Republicans… *unintelligible* …Obama…. CBS REPORTER: That’s the question. UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: *unintelligible* CBS REPORTER: Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question. UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Your question? Your statement? CBS REPORTER: I […]

MSM Deathwatch: Faith in Media at an all Time Low

What happens when the MSM is continually caught telling lies, ignoring stories that everyone knows about, and basically making it up as they go along?  Well, people stop trusting them! And, that appears to be happening to our friends at the MSM.  Newsbusters has the details… America’s confidence in TV news has hit a new low, but should anyone be surprised? According to Gallup’s analysis  of their annual Confidence in Institutions survey , only 21 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in TV news. Newspapers don’t fare much better with only 25 percent of respondents expressing confidence.  Gallup’s survey, which was […]

Keith Olbermann Update: He Knew the Truth in High School

Even though Keith Olbermann is a current non-entity, he still gets some attention from the blogosphere.  Apparently, old Keith had his Modus Operandi mapped out in High School.  Doug Ross (no relation) has the evidence… In case you missed it, his quotation reads, “Journalists say a thing they know isn’t true, in the hope that if they say it long enough it will be true.” That was the guiding principal throughout his entire career.

Melissa Harris Perry of MSNBC Engages in Leftist Propaganda for Independence Day

Well, just in cased you thought that even MSNBC couldn’t ruin Independence Day, think again.  MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry went out of her way to propagandize the birth of our country.  The Blaze has the video, and the transcript… Melissa Harris Perry, say things like this, according to Mediaite: In what is sure to rankle the feathers of many conservatives, MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry took to her show Sunday to ponder the meaning of Independence Day, highlighting mostly the stains on American history. “It’s ours, all of it,” she said. “The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery, also the liberation and the hope and the […]

CNN Finally Covers the SWATting of One of Their Own Contributors, Erick Erickson

It took a while, but even CNN was drug, kicking and screaming, into covering the SWATting of Erick Erickson, a contributor ON THAT VERY NETWORK! While all the connections aren’t exactly made clear here, at least the fact that SWATting is happening is being exposed, and once people start looking into it, a few names are going to crop up.

Some in Congress Seek to Repeal Ban on Propaganda, Are They Aware That MSNBC has Already Ignored it?

Imagine my shock and surprise when I read of the proposal to eliminate laws restricting the use of propaganda in the US.  Here is more via Buzzfeed… An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned. The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website. The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and […]

MSM DeathWatch: CNN Continues to Tank, Piers Morgan Hit the Hardest

The biased media continues to sink like a stone, with CNN leading the way into the dustbin of pseudo-journalistic history.  NewsBusters has the latest failure related details… On Tuesday, May 16, CNN did something that hadn’t happened to the network since 1997: The 9 p.m. edition of Piers Morgan Tonight drew an audience of only 39,000 viewers in the important 25-54 age demographic. These numbers come as a huge blow to the host, liberal, former tabloid editor Piers Morgan. According to a story by Alex Weprin for the TVNewser,com Website, that day was “a typical boring Tuesday, with little earth-shattering news to drive TV viewers […]
