July 3, 2008

Damn, if the German publication Der Spiegel can admit it, and that rag is so far to the left it makes make Keith “Bathtub Boy” Olbermann look like Rush, way can’t the New York Times, the Washington Post, Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid fess up?

HT to Ace.

No need to raise taxes…

May 30, 2008

…just get liberals to actually pay their taxes! Joining the ranks of liberal who callf for raising your taxes and don’t pay their own taxes, (such as democrat Senate candidate Al Franken) is uber-liberal far left extremist so-called “journalist” Keith “Bathtub Boy” Olbermann. Details at Olbermann Watch.

New York State has issued a tax warrant against Keith Olbermann for failure to pay taxes on his humbly named personal corporation, Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc. Olbermann is listed in legal records as the President of Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc.

A call to the Albany County Clerk’s Office in upstate New York confirmed that the warrant is still outstanding and that Olbermann has still failed to pay his back taxes. State records show that Olbermann’s company failed to pay $2,269.50 in state taxes. A judgement was entered against Olbermann last summer (Docket Date: 8/21/2007), just weeks before Olbermann closed on a a luxurious $4.2 mm condo at Trump Palace, at 200 East 69th Street.

Olbermann loosing it.

As I said “Olbermann exists to make O’Reilly look calm, rational and sane.”

Olbermann Watch has a couple of examples.

The pimping double standard at MSNBC

February 10, 2008

Olbermann Watch has the story.

Update: Moxie nails the other MSM/DNC double standard:

It’s scary when I agree with someone at MSNBC. But honestly, [Chelsea] was shielded during her White House years. She pretty much vanished into an angel’s wing when she attended Stanford and beyond. Until recently, of course when she got more involved with her witch of a mother’s campaign.

Let’s contrast that with the harsh and constant scrutiny the Bush twins received. Every college foible was beyond documented and dissected. Names were called, no suspensions, no apologies and there we go with that nagging liberal media double standard.

I’m tired of that particular double standard.

Now Chelsea is an adult and by any definition, her Mom is pimping her out, to gather the young female vote, the celebrity female vote. Once you become active in a campaign, you are open to criticism and often painful but very true observations.

…and then MSM just gets it wrong

No suprise there. Confederate Yankee has been pointed out factual errors made by ABC.
The best part, ABC’s Blotter is even deleting his comments pointing out the factual inaccuracies in their reporting.
At this point, I think it is fair to say the ABC is deliberately lying to press their agenda.

has the video of Olbermann parroting of Ross’ falsehoods.

At least one of the weapons used by the shooter is believed, as we said, to be in nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol, which would be like this one, with a clip designed to hold more than 10 shots. Clips like those were banned under the Assault Weapons Law of 1994, but Congress and President Bush allowed that law to expire more than two years ago.

I’ll try this once more, making it so easy that even journalists can understand it.

High-capacity magazines were never outlawed. They were never illegal to own, buy or sell, person-to-person, in retail stores, catalogs, or online.

Part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 was the so-called Federal Assault Weapons Ban, which was a ban on certain cosmetic features found on some firearms. It was, in fact, nothing more than “scary-looking gun” law.

Banned “assault rifles” were easily made legal again by manufacturers who merely had to remove the offensive accessories, such as flash hiders, pistol grip-style stocks, or bayonets lugs, none of which affected the rate of fire, accuracy or velocity of the firearms in question. Older firearms arbitrarily (and inaccurately) deemed assault weapons by the ban that were already in the market were grandfathered in, and the new “post-ban” assault weapons sold quite well during the length of the so-called ban.

Another provision of the ban was a ban on the manufacture of “large capacity ammunition feeding devices,” which the law defined, again arbitrarily, as those rifle and pistol magazines that hold in excess of then rounds of ammunition.

Where Ross, ABC New, Olbermann and others are dead wrong is when they attempt to imply that the ban on the manufacture of new magazines of more than ten rounds was a ban on all high-capacity magazines. This is patently false.

I’m growing increasingly tired of journalists such as Brain Ross, ABC News, and Keith Olbermann spouting falsehoods, when they have obviously been too lazy–or perhaps just to agenda-driven–to simply read the law itself, or even point a web browser in the direction of Google.

These so-called journalists have forfeited their credibility by refusing to address the truth, and instead, decided to foist upon an unsuspecting public, blatant falsehoods to further a political agenda.

We’ve come to expect our media to be biased. We shouldn’t have to deal with them blatantly, recklessly, and repeatedly lying to further their private policy beliefs.
