When something terrible happens, people turn to the news. But, it appears that MSNBC is not the place to which to turn. During last week’s Boston Marathon Bombing crisis. People turned to the news. However, it was FOX, and to a lesser degree, CNN, that viewers trusted. MSNBC was not in the equation. Newsbusters has more… TVByTheNumbers.com shared data Friday (through Thursday): 4-DAY AVERAGE TOTAL DAY FNC: 1,647,000 total viewers (421,000 in the demo) CNN: 1,048,000 total viewers (403,000 in the demo) MSNBC: 515,000 total viewers (162,000 in the demo) 4-DAY AVERAGE PRIMETIME FNC: 2,783,000 total viewers (682,000 in [...]
Just when we thought it was ridiculous to think that the big lie Global Warming caused it to be COLD, a CNN anchor, Deb Feyerick, floated the idea that a near Earth asteroid was caused by Global Warming? Outside the Beltway has more… UM, stupid, or zealous for the narrative? I’ll let you be the judge. Related posts: Global Warming to Kill off Coffee?? Will Global Warming Save the World?

Unfortunately, Piers Morgan’s self promotion to turn the Holy Trinity into a quartet did not go through, and he remains at his current station: officious twit. Apparently, Morgan had a double portion of his “unwarranted self importance flakes” prior to doing this interview… So, Piers Morgan promotes himself to being God, because HE thinks that HE knows what should be in the Bible. The Bible answers… 2 Timothy 3:16 New International Version (NIV) 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, But, as we all know, Mr. Morgan is a far higher authority [...]
We’ve been covering the fact that pollsters, in their effort to shape opinion, rather than reflect it, have been oversampling Democrats to make it appear that Obama is ahead. Da Tech Guy has been ahead of the crowd on this, so check out his place. In the meantime, here is the latest poll to be fudged. Gateway Pundit has the information… CNN reported: It’s all tied up, according to a new national poll released two days before the presidential election. And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost [...]
Much ado has been made (and rightfully so) about Candy Crowley’s performance as moderator in the second of the three Presidential Debates this year. Opinions on the left range from embarrassment to outright praise; while those on the right are pretty much in agreement that she was definitely in the tank for team Obama. In an internal memo obtained by TMZ and reported on Breitbart, Crowley’s Managing Editor thought she did a “superb job.” However, the question practically nobody is asking (although I did find one article about it on the Independent Journal Review) is “Did CNN and the Obama [...]
Here is the video, via Breitbart, that shows how Candy Crowley tried to explain away how she helped Obama with some false information. It seems that Crowley aided the POTUS will some cover. Mediaite has even more on why so far fewer Americans trust the media… My singular take away moment of last night’s debate was one that elevated Crowley from moderator to debate participant. Crowley shot from the hip and echoed a talking point from the Obama campaign regarding their handling of the Libya attack to criticize Mitt Romney mid-debate. What’s more? She was wrong. Crowley did her profession a disservice last night and confirmed many [...]
Here is the Presidential Debate Live Feed: This one ought to be interesting in terms of how Obama adjusts to his failure in the first debate. Then, we also have to see if CNN uses plants to ask questions, or will they simply structure the debate to favor Obama? There’s only one way to tell, which is to watch the 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 [...]
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 [...]
“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.

CNN recently published a poll showing Obama up by seven points, which seems incomprehensible. However, when bloggers, like Da Tech Guy, took the poll apart, they saw that the breakdown of party affiliation in the poll was never punished. Can you read, “OVERSAMPLING?” Da Tech Guy has more… Well I took the liberty of re-reading the poll and while they don’t provide the splits they do have an interesting subsection where only Republicans and Republican leaners are asked that tells a story… BASED ON 419 REPUBLICANS AND INDEPENDENTS WHO LEAN REPUBLICAN– SAMPLING ERROR: +/- 5 PERCENTAGE PTS. Why is this important? here [...]
First let’s talk about the meme that the “rich get richer and the poor get poorer”. That the rich are getting richer is without a doubt true. So, I won’t even go there. But, what about the poor? Are they really getting poorer? That would be a difficult case to make in America. In Entitlement America, The Head Of A Household Of Four Making Minimum Wage Has More Disposable Income Than A Family Making $60,000 A Year. So, why does it seem that the percentage of our population that is classified as being poor never changes? Bruce McQuain ofQuestions and [...]
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.

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 [...]
There are times when it is advisable to wait on a story. Sometimes, something unbelievably freaktastic comes up, and you just want to write about it. But if you’re not careful, you’ll get zapped when the freaktastic story turns out to be false, or even worse, a hoax. The lefty blogosphere stepped in it big time yesterday, when they picked up on a rather nasty message left on a restaurant receipt. For more, here is an excerpt from The Gateway Pundit… Only dumb leftists would believe that “rich” bankers are this obnoxious and horrible. A Newport Beach restaurant receipt where a “banker” recently [...]

For our latest rendition of A Tale of Two Stories, we need to look at what is happening in with ObamaCare. One of it’s requirements is for providers to convert to a electronic medical record, or EMR. While this, on the surface, would allow for some advantages, like making it easier to get records from distant providers in the event of a medical emergency. However, with government involved, the law of unintended consequences always rears it’s ugly head. Big Government has the details… Last week, layoffs were announced at the University of Mississippi Medical Center due in part to the 80 million [...]
Yesterday, myself, and a large number of other bloggers covered the video in which an apparent longshoreman threatened a news crew. To refresh your memory, here is that video. CAUTION: FOUL LANGUAGE ALERT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFHBGGvuQhA&feature=player_embedded While I am surprised that the MSM covered it at all, the tone of the coverage had bias written all over it. Here is CNN’s coverage, via Newsbusters… So, this is funny? This is one of the networks that portray the Tea Party as a pack of dangerous racists, with no evidence, yet this longshoreman, who used actual threats, and acted in typical thuggish fashion, is [...]
Tonight’s debate was rather interesting. Here are some thoughts… Gingrich: For much of the first half of the debate, old Newt came off as rather petulant. However, he came into his own as second half went on. As always, you have to keep the following in mind as he speaks; “this man is part of the establishment.” When he spoke out about establishment politicians, I had my only “LOL moment”of the debate. Santorum: Competent, and I thought he covered Conservative issues well. He also mention the IPAB Death Panel, and stated the case against ObamaCare well. At the same time, [...]
The news just keeps getting worse for the Democrats. According to CNN, the Democrats are down 7% on a generic ballot to the GOP. According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday, the GOP leads the Democrats by 7 points on the “generic ballot” question, 52 percent to 45 percent. That 7-point advantage is up from a 3-point margin last month. The generic ballot question asks respondents if they would vote for a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district, without naming any specific candidates. “The survey indicates that independents and voters who dislike both parties are starting to [...]
And they wonder why no one is watching… So, the MSM doesn’t like the bloggers. I wonder if they got that from JournoList? Here are some of the highlights, if you can call them that. “There are so many great things that the internet does and has to offer, but at the same time, Kyra, as you know, there is this dark side,” Roberts said. “Imagine what would have happened if we hadn’t taken a look at what happened with Shirley Sherrod and plumbed the depths further and found out that what had been posted on the internet was not [...]

CNN recently published (to my surprise) the results of a poll that indicates that a majority of Americans view the government as an imminent threat to their freedoms. Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government’s become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree. Now, I know what the talking heads will say; “It’s all of those ignorant, redneck, racist, fascist, gun-owning, bible believing, flat Earther, and undereducated teabaggers!” Well, the breakdown [...]
