Blatant, overt racism

February 25, 2009

No surprise that it is coming from the left and there will be no media outrage over it.
Two members of the extreme far left media, who have freely admitted their extremist political bias, made flat out, unequivocal racist comments about the non-white governor of Louisiana.

First it was Helen Thomas making racially charged and negative comments about “Slumdog Millionaire” in reference to the Governor, who is of Indian decent.

Then it was Chris Matthews of the “Obama Network” using racist language to describe the governor’s speech.

The only thing more outrageous than this flat out racism from members of the press is the silence of the far left who bring the charge of racism against any perceived slight against our Dear Leader.

It’s official…

December 1, 2008

…the staff at MSNBC are not living in the shared reality of rational, thinking adults. Newbusters has the latest bit of proof.

File this one under “Deluded Expectations.” During MSNBC’s coverage of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, on Thursday, daytime anchor Alex Witt seemed frustrated that the election of Barack Obama 23 days earlier — and the accompanying “global outpouring of affection, respect, hope” — had not caused an end to terrorist violence.

HT to Hot Air.

Welcome to Reality Obamabots.

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.”

Has anyone over at MSNBC actually read the US Constitution?

October 22, 2008

I just heard some talking head on MSNBC repeat Biden’s false claim that the role of the VP in the Senate is only to break tie votes.
Let’s review Article I (which lays out the powers and role of the Legislative branch), section 3.

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.

The Senate shall choose their other officers, and also a President pro tempore, in the absence of the Vice President, or when he shall exercise the office of President of the United States.

The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments. When sitting for that purpose, they shall be on oath or affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two thirds of the members present.

It’s pretty clear that the VP is to preside over the Senate, and the President pro tempore only gets the gavel when the VP is busy doing something else. Note that it clearly spells out the only time the VP is not to act as the President of Senate, i.e. presiding over it, is when the VP is acting as the of President of the United States or when the President of the United States is being tried for impeachment in the Senate.

Historically, the Vice-President’s office was in Senate offices. The move to the White House has made mid-20th century. That VPs have pretty much ignored this role for the past 50 or so years doesn’t change it.

One would think a thirty plus year veteran of the Senate would be up on this stuff, but clearly Joe Biden, and his lapdogs at MSNBC are not.

Deliciously snarky comment on this subject over at Hot Air.

Update: Ken Shepard at NewsBusters delivers some the history the left is clueless about.

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.

Sunday Morning Talk Shows

August 3, 2008

Former democrat operative George Swaythepopulas gave democrat Speaker of the House “San Fran Nan” Pelosi (Worst. Speaker. Ever.) free rein to spout her talking points.

Meet the Press had Senator Lieberman (moderate, sane democrat and McCain supporter) debating Senator John Kerry (far left democrat billionaire who only pays federal tax at a 12% rate, and Barak H. Obama supporter).

Update: democrat Tom Daschle, a major Obama supporter, is on Fox News Sunday. Daschle is a lying weasel. He always has been, always will be. Daschle lies boldly and with a straight face. The truth is not part of that man’s genetic makeup.

The lone Right of Center member of the Meet the Press round table made a what is probably a highly accurate prediction. He predicted that Hillary Clinton will make a good speech at the DNC, not a great speech, but a good speech. Then, in November, she will vote for John McCain.
That does make sense based on her over riding goal to take control of the White House. Her best bet to inflict her socialist policies on America is to run in 2012. She needs Senator John McCain to win in 2008 for that to happen.

Check the temperature in Satan’s summer cottage. Juan Williams is agreeing with Bill Kristol on how Obama screwed the pooch by repeatedly playing the race card.

MSNBC’s Canoe Girl is back!

June 22, 2008

The Cassandra Page points out that Michelle Kosinski is back on the air. Michelle Kosinski, as you may remember, was the MSNBC reporter who got caught staging a false new report by reporting about New Jersey flooding in a canoe. The lie was exposed when two men walked between her and the camera, showing that the water was ankle deep.

Keep that level of “professional journalism” in mind when watching MSNBC.

Tim Russert died on the job.

June 13, 2008

The host of NBC’s Meet the Press, and VP of NBC News, died today of a heart attack while on the job.

I can’t think of any of MSNBC’s major news talking heads who are fit to shine Mr. Russert’s shoes, let alone fill them.

While he was former democrat political operative, he didn’t let that get the way of putting democrats on the spot during his interviews.

Double Plus Good Duck Speak from MSNBC

May 28, 2008

According to the “unbias reporters” at MSNBC, you are not having your identity stolen by illegal criminal immigrants, you are sharing your identity with “undocumented workers.” That is, of course, utter bullshit shoveled your way by the far hard left extremists at the so-called “news organization” at MSNBC.

At least there is some honesty shown

May 22, 2008

Newsbusters has this story about liberal democrat actor Kevin Spacey taking about a liberal fantasy movie about the 2000 Presidential election in Florida. Spacey admits that the film is heavily biases toward the democrat fantasy view of that election. The big lie he spouts is this “It does seem that on the one hand the Bush people were trying to stop votes from being counted and the Gore people were just trying to get votes counted.”

That is, of course, utter and complete bullshit. The historic reality of the matter is that George W. Bush won the full state election, the recount of the full state election, and every one of the district recounts carefully cherry picked by the Gore campaign and the DNC. It was the democrats who tried to block neutral and Republican observers from recount rooms. It was the democrats who sent teams of hit lawyers across the states to have absentee ballots from US military personnel serving overseas (many in places the Clinton/Gore administration sent them, like Bosnia and Kosovo) thrown out, because they knew the military demographic tended to vote heavily Republican. The last thing the Gore campaign and the DNC wanted was a complete state wide recount. If they could have the votes from the entire panhandle section of Florida thrown out, they would have pushed for that too.

The democrats are spreading this revisionist history and they are preparing to to do it again, according to their advocates at MSNBC.

During MSNBC’s live coverage of the Kentucky and Oregon Democratic presidential primaries on Tuesday, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell seemed to take seriously suggestions by Hillary Clinton “loyalists” who argue that Republicans in control of the election process in some red states Barack Obama hopes to carry may deny him a “fair vote” in the November general election.

This is a sad truth about the democrats, they have to lie, not only to attempt to win elections, but they also feel the need to lie about why they loose elections. The truth just isn’t in them.
