ABC

A Third Party Perspective

Often times we hear that we’re too close to something to be able to be objective enough to evaluate it rationally. Now before I go much further, lets make sure that we all know who I’m speaking of. I’m not talking about our main stream media, MSNBC, CNN or the plethora of far left websites, such as DailyKOS, HuffPo, etc… No, I’m talking about those that are closer to the center of the political spectrum. The folks that possibly bought into Hope & Change in ’08 and maybe sat home in ’12. Back in ’08, candidate Obama sounded pretty centrist. […]

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 […]

Welcome to Amerika!

Note:  This a post that was originally published in 2010.  It still fits, if you ask me.  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 the Soviet Union. Here is the trailer. I started looking for clips from it. There aren’t all that many, but this one rings true for modern […]

IRS Acting as if it were Behind the Iron Curtain: Armed Security Intimidates Staffers

In a scene taken from some old movie about life behind the Iron Curtain, ABC reporters were allegedly tailed by armed security in an apparent effort to dissuade IRS employeess from speaking out about what they know about the Tea Party scandal.  Dan Riehl has more… Wow! This reads as though the IRS office in Cincinnati was moved somewhere behind the Iron Curtain when no one was looking! Welcome to Cincinnati – Ground zero of the exploding IRS scandal. Things started brewing earlier this month when Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington first admitted conservative groups were targeted for extra […]

“Broke Party!” Black Activists Organize Protest Against Obama, ABC: Zero Media Coverage

A groups of black activists, under the banner of the “Broke Party,” organized a protest against Mayor Rahm Emanuel, President Obama, and even protested at the local ABC affiliate.  The result?  They were ignored.  Breitbart has the video… So, these folks decide to get off the Democratic Plantation, and at least for now, they are being ignored. Breitbart has more… The protesters waved anti-union signs, anti-NAACP, anti-Rainbow Push, and signs reading “Rahm Hates Black People” in front of the studio as Kathy Brock and Alan Krashesky broadcasted the evening news. They demanded their voices be heard and criticized Emanuel for acting in cahoots with community-organizing […]

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 […]

Barack Obama, Agent Of Chaos

“Hodgkins, I want the officer responsible for internal security in here on the double.” “You’re the internal security officer.” “Fast work, Hodgkins.” — Don Adams as Maxwell Smart “… this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting.” — Jay Carney, Obama Press Secretary No, the mayhem caused by the rampaging adherents of the perpetually outraged adherents of the ‘Religion of Peace’ can’t be the result of the policies of this administration.  […]

“Justice for Trayvon?” Man Nearly Beaten to Death

  Since race baiters, with the full support of the MSM, have convicted George Zimmerman of murder most foul, racial tensions have been elevated.  And, with self important men and the MSM (or do I repeat myself) continuing to fan the flames of hate and resentment, there has been a predictable escalation in violence.  For the latest, The Other McCain is on the case… From the very start, I warned against trying this case in the media. Demagoguery and political grandstanding have predictably inflamed emotions, so that innocent people who never set foot in Sanford, Florida, are made to pay a […]

Trayvon Martin Update: Call Didn’t Have Racial Slur After All? Zimmerman not a Racist?

The Martin case continues to evolve, much to the chagrin of the MSM.  The more that comes out, the more the opportunistic, and shall we say, creative, coverage is blowing up in the dinosaur media’s faces.  Some more came to light yesterday, so let’s take a look at the new details. After NBC was castigated for selectively editing the 911 tape to make Zimmerman look like a racist.  Then, the ABC video that allegedly showed no injuries to Zimmerman actually did.  And now, it seems that the CNN audio “enhancement” that indicated that Zimmerman used a racial slur has been […]

Trayvon Martin Update: Leftist Twit Flips Out on CNN, More Information on the Police Video, and Voice Recognition

If you want a great example of a MSM talking head being prejudicial, and an overall twit? This guy is blasting Piers Morgan for not following the same “Standards and Practices,” that NBC aspires to when NBC engaged in selective editing of the 9-11 call? Well, are those the “standards and practices” that NBC claims? And, MSNBC ran a text version, which they later changed without comment, or apology. Since then, the news channel has changed that paragraph of the story on its website so it reads as follows: This guy looks like he’s up to no good,” Zimmerman said […]

Classic Conservative Hideout: Welcome to Amerika

MSM Deathwatch: Slide Continues Even During Election Season

I have to admit it, I LOVE doing these posts. The MSM continues to lie, omit, attack, and spin, and more and more people are turning away.  AND THEY SIMPLY DO NOT GET IT! For more on the crash and burn of the MSM, kindly take a look at this from Newsbusters. They’re out of excuses. Summer’s over. It’s after Labor Day. The kids are back in school. People are back into their routines. The trouble for the Big 3 broadcast networks is that those routines don’t include watching their early-evening newscasts. Beyond that, last week was a pivotal week […]

MSM Deathwatch: Big Three Still Losing Viewers

I hate to gloat over the impending doom of the liberal MSM.  Well, then again, yes I do!  For the latest on the decline the MSM can’t hide, here’s this from News Busters. But the Big Three networks won’t be able to avoid the fact that their ongoing decline reached a painful low last week of 18.82 million average viewers. Here is the graphic that appeared this morning at ABC’s lipstick-on-a-pig blog post: I don’t know whether that’s an all-time low, but Kevin Allocca at Media Bistro, who hadn’t posted the full numbers as of the time of this post, […]

MSM Deathwatch: Nightly News Broadcasts Continue to Lose Viewers

I love doing these posts.  I know I shouldn’t, but I must admit that the failure of the MSM brings out the dark side in my sense of humor.  I guess you could call it the recognition of the irony that escapes the elites.  They apparently have no idea why they are tanking.  Frankly, I enjoy that considerably. At any rate, that failure continues.  In fact, it is accelerating.  NewsBusters has the latest. The big three nightly news broadcasts, NBC Nightly, CBS Evening and ABC World, lost a combined one million viewers in the second quarter of 2010, according to […]

Welcome to Amerika!

I started looking for clips from it.  There aren’t all that many, but this one rings true for modern liberal thought. All that’s missing is the “mmm, mmm, mmm.” I wonder what folks in the lefty […]

When Emos Whine: NBC Infested With Fail

In other media related news, seems NBC is miffed at their favorite President. Hat tip to mediabistro.com – Stamping their feet and throwing out a, “That’s not fair!!” temper tantrum, NBC has filed a complaint about ABC getting too cozy with the Obama White House. Citing the last two ABC interviews, Charles Gibson in December and the very recent sit down with George Stephanopoulos, NBC claims that Stephy’s close friendship with Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel gives ABC an unfair edge. (Update: An NBC News spokesperson now tells us, “NBC News did not file a formal or informal complaint about this […]

ClimateGate: A Tale of Two Stories, One Ignored, and Another Hyped

First, this from Newsbusters… The broadcast networks still haven’t uttered a single word about the revelations late last week of e-mails showing scientists on the left-wing side of the global warming debate plotting to hide data and silence those on the other side in an effort prop up the notion of a “consensus” on the issue. But when the liberal side of the debate charged that their opponents were involved in a “conspiracy” to tilt the debate in their favor, those same networks eagerly jumped on the story and castigated the evil “deniers.” In 2007, as Brent Baker chronicled at […]
