Help NBC Create Its Next Gay Sitcom Smash!

We’ll have a gay old time! Good news for all struggling writers, would-be writers, those curious about writing, those curious about writing but don’t want anyone to find out, those who wrote once but stopped because of shame and those who secretly write every Friday night in the bushes in Central Park. NBC needs help!  No, not meds for their executives.  NBC wants you to write their next sitcom! (That’s short for “situation comedy” for those of you who aren’t in the business.) As with anything in life, there are rules.  All NBC asks is that the sitcom “reflect the […]

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? […]

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. […]

The Blame Game: NBC Talking Head, Ann Curry, Bashing Kirk Cameron, Blaming Christianity for Hate

It seems that NBC’s Ann Curry doesn’t like Christians.  Here is a little slice of how Liberals use invented “hate” as an excuse to engage in actual hate… It doesn’t matter what the truth is. The narrative of the day is that Christianity is evil, and things that are evil are good. And that Islam demands that gays be put to death?  We’ll just ignore that, OK?

David Gregory Above the Law? Media Bias Trumps Gun Laws!

Oh to be a influential liberal!  I could be Al Gore, and while telling everyone that they need to live in thatch huts, I could live in big mansions and fly around in private jets.  Or, I could be Michael Moore, and hang out with the 99% and tout democracy, while living in a 1% house, and forcing workers to join unions.  Because, as well all know, nothing says democracy like forced union membership. But, David Gregory media talking head at NBC, may take the cake,  He appeared on Meet the Press last week… Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world […]

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 […]

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.  […]

Manhattan Infidel Selectively Edits the George Zimmerman Audio

In today’s post, I, the Manhattan Infidel, have decided to take a stab at selectively editing the infamous George Zimmerman audio. As many know the original audio goes like this: Zimmerman:  This guy looks like he’s up to no good.  Or he’s on drugs or something.  It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher:  Okay, and this guy – is he black, white or Hispanic? Zimmerman:  He looks black. Which a major television network that shall remain nameless peacockselectively edited to this: Zimmerman:  This guy looks like he’s up to no good.  He looks black. While I respect and admire the job the […]

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 […]

NBC Apologizes for Edited Zimmerman 911 Call

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 will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.” When asked if anyone at Today had lost their job or had been reassigned as a […]

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 […]

Useful Idiot of the Month Poll: November 2010

I’m a bit late getting the poll and post up, but here it is.  Here is a breakdown of their worthiness: Nancy Pelosi- Self explanatory Valerie Jarret-From Always on Watch In his biography of Obama, “The Bridge,” David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, quotes White House senior adviser and longtime Obama friend Valerie Jarrett: “I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — […]

A Tale of Two Stories: When no one Watches, Put it on Every Channel, Plus, O’Donnell’s MSM Blackout

Note: I’ve been referencing Newsbusters a great deal this week.  They are currently asking for funds for their website redesign.   If you like their continous exposure of the MSM, make a donation here. During the course of the week, a few stories stories caught my eye.  Kindly take a look at the first, from Newsbusters. The ratings are in for Barack Obama’s televised town hall meeting on CNBC Monday, and they’re pretty dismal. In fact, far more people watched the Fox News Channel’s “Happening Now” with Jon Scott and Jenna Lee airing at the same time than tuned in to […]

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, […]

The Democrats are Falling Apart: Two Telling Polls-UPDATED

I saw two polls today that have HUGE implications for both the Democrats and Republicans.  Let’s take a look. First up, Hot Air has the link to this poll from NBC and the WSJ.  While it did sample more Democrats than Republicans, it could be harbinger of death for the Democrats. Underpinning the gloom: Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the economy has yet to hit bottom, a sharply higher percentage than the 53% who felt that way in January. So much for the “Summer of Recovery.”   When the propaganda is so separated from reality, the propaganda fails. As in recent […]

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 […]
