Even the Hollywood left thinks MSNBC is "completely out of control"

October 29, 2008

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, who produced many campaign videos for the Clintons as well as several hit TV shows says that she’d “prefer a lunch date with right-leaning Fox News star Sean Hannity over left-leaning MSNBC star Keith Olbermann?”.

You have to be pretty far off the deep end of rational for a group of Hollywood liberals to accuse a “news” organization of liberal media bias.

Ms. Bloodworth-Thomason went on to say that “Democrats have been worse than Republicans as far as personal attacks on candidates are concerned.”

The adults at MSNBC reassert their authority

September 8, 2008

According to the NY Times, the two far left extremist “commentators” MSNBC has had “reporting” the political news have been pulled. Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, both obviously and visibly deep in the tank for hard left liberal “Community Organizer” Barak Hussein Obama, will no longer be able to present their liberal extremist views as “News.”

MSNBC’s desperate attempt to lure kos kiddies to the tube has failed. They are still in last place in the ratings. In addition, they were having what was left of their reputation as a “news organization” trashed in process.

MSNBC claims to be politically neutral, but:

Mr. Olbermann, a 49-year-old former sportscaster, has become the face of the more aggressive MSNBC, and the lightning rod for much of the criticism. His program “Countdown,” now a liberal institution, was created by Mr. Olbermann in 2003 but it found its voice in his gnawing dissent regarding the Bush administration, often in the form of “special comment” segments.

A like-minded talk show will now follow “Countdown” at 9 p.m.: “The Rachel Maddow Show,” hosted by the liberal radio host, begins Monday.

The actual journalists at MSNBC are feeling the pain of MSNBC’s extreme leftist bias.

Tom Brokaw and Brian Williams, the past and present anchors of “NBC Nightly News,” have told friends and colleagues that they are finding it tougher and tougher to defend the cable arm of the news division, even while they anchored daytime hours of convention coverage on MSNBC and contributed commentary each evening.

Don’t expect radical changes and actual journalism to prevail at MSNBC though. This is just a little spin control while more people are paying attention to political news. Olbermann will still continue to spew during his 60 minute hate show.

The democrats Big Lie

September 5, 2008

CNN parrots the democratsBig Lie” in this DNC press release they are trying to pass off as a “news story.”

The DNC is trying to pass off McCain as a “more of the same” Washington Insider. You know the type, democrat VP candidate Joe Biden is a perfect example. Biden has been in the Senate longer than McCain and is a loyal foot solider in the democrats plan for bigger government and higher taxes.

The so-called CNN “News Story” goes on to spout DNC propaganda by claiming that the Uber-partisan far left extremist Barak Obama will “he’ll cut taxes for 95 percent of all working families, provide affordable health care to every American, end the tax breaks for companies that ship our jobs overseas and eliminate the oil we import from the Middle East in 10 years.” The DNC mouthpiece left out that every child will get a pony as well. Rational thinking adults who pay attention remember that Obama has detailed plans to spend tens of billions of additional tax payer dollars and is really, really fuzzy on how he plans to pay for them (other than jacking taxes on productive, working Americans through the roof).

Here are some actual facts to counter balance the CNN/DNC propaganda piece.

Senator John McCain may not be much of a “Conservative”, but unlike the extremely partisan far left Barak Hussein Obama, he has a history of working bi-partisanly to get things done. That is something BO has never done in his political career.

Former “Community Organizer” Obama doesn’t have much of a record of actually fighting corruption either. His record in the Illinois state legislature consists mostly of voting “present.” Alaska Governor Sarah Palin however, has a solid record of fighting corruption, including rooting it out in her own party. The democrats record on that is extremely poor (Congress critter “Cold Cash” Jefferson is a prime example).

The MSM’s double standard

September 3, 2008

The same liberal MSM that had be dragged kicking and screaming to cover liberal democrat Barak Obama’s minister, the Rev. Wright and his Black Theology Church, ignored the John Edwards affair until he called them to admit to it, and won’t touch the Obama connection to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, is all over conservative Republican Gov. Sarah Palin.

Liberal democrat John Edwards’ “love child” is off limits, but so-called “mainstream media” types are asking for “paternity tests to prove paternity for her last child”

Update: John Harwood, CNBC’s chief Washington Correspondent, admitted this morning “that people who talk about bias in the mainstream press, left of center bias, are not imagining things.”

He’s probably right

September 3, 2008

Glenn Reynolds made the following comment:

HOW THEY COULD HAVE KEPT THE PALIN PREGNANCY STORY OUT OF THE PRESS: Leaked it that John Edwards was the father . . .

Yup…pretty much dead, balls on, accurate.

MSM hiding economic growth

August 28, 2008

Since what is good for America is bad for democrats, the DNC/MSM is burying news of economic growth. News like:

According to an update to the second-quarter gross domestic product report released by the government Thursday, the economy grew at a 3.3% clip, up from the 1.9% annual growth rate first reported last month. Economists surveyed by Briefing.com were expecting GDP to be revised up to 2.7% in the quarter. The GDP is the broadest measure of the nation’s economic activity.

Economic growth between 2.5% and 3.5% is typically viewed as the norm for a healthy economy.

…which CNN buried in the business section instead of on the top of US News (where it belongs) because it doesn’t fit with the doom and gloom economic message that the democrats are pushing at their convention.

How in the tank is the press for Obama

August 17, 2008

Well, when the Omnibudsman for the left leaning Washington Post says “…the disparity is so wide that it doesn’t look good,” they are in the tank pretty fucking deep.

Yup, most the MSM reporters are going to need a decompression chamber to come out that tank.

It’s really bad at NBC. First it was Chris Matthew’s “tingle” running up his leg. Now it’s Andrea Mitchell spouting Obama campaign tin foil hat crybaby whining story over Senator John McCain handing Obama his ass the other other night.

Come on People! Barak H. Obama is only smooth in front of teleprompter! Be happy he only stumbled as much as he did. Senator McCain is a seasoned veteran of politics at the hard ball national (and international) level. Obama was fixing Chicago parking tickets a few years ago. That McCain handled the unscripted questions better was to be expected in the world of rational adults who pay attention. Oh, that must be way it caught the Obama camp and his supporters completely by surprise.

The real story.

August 13, 2008

Let us keep in mind that the real story isn’t that democrat candidate for President cheated on his cancer stricken wife and lied to the American public. Hell, since Billy Jeff Clinton lowered the bar on screwing around, cheating on your wife is considered Presidential behavior in leftist democrat circles.

The real story is the DNC/MSM deliberately ignored the story for so long.

They were quick to publish rumors about Senator McCain and a blond lobbyist, even through they admitted they were rumors, but sat on a much firmer story about democrat presidential candidate John “Silky Pony” Edwards.

The question now being raised is if the DNC/MSM media blackout over John Edwards and his blond mistress cost Hillary Rodham Clinton the win in Iowa?

If Hillary had won Iowa, which she probably would have if the “independent media” was doing their job and exposed Edwards for the lying adulterer that he is, Obama would have never picked up the early momentum he rode to victories in mostly caucus states.

You can bet that the PUMAs are going to pick up on this. Things may get interesting in Denver.

Left wing censorship protects the Silky Pony

July 28, 2008

The LA Times tells its “bloggers” to ignore the story about John Edwards cheating on his cancer stricken wife and the illegitimate baby his mistress had by him.

Ala points out that even Wikipedia has put a gag order on this story.

That wasn’t an interview, it was a donation to BO’s campaign

July 27, 2008

Tom Brokaw was pitching underhand softballs to Barak H. Obama on Meet the Press today. No followups, just allowing BO to recite his talking points. I wouldn’t be surprised if some NBC staffer slipped BO the questions in advance.

NBC should just write the cost of that show off as a campaign contribution to Barak H. Obama and the Soros wing of the DNC.
