Obama to Barnard graduates: “Perservere!” (not a word); Maddow interviews Warren, never asks about her controversy
No one else notices these things, I guess, but here goes. OBAMA TO BARNARD GARDUATES — “PERSERVERE! PERSERVERE!” There is video at this site (it’s at the 20-minute mark) and here’s the text: My last piece of advice — this is simple, but perhaps most important: Persevere. Persevere. Nothing worthwhile is easy. No one of achievement has avoided failure — sometimes catastrophic failures. But they | Read More »
“Never to keep an unnecessary soldier”: Rachel Maddow’s new book misquotes Thomas Jefferson
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has a new book out called Drift. I won’t review it because I’d have to buy it. The Soros-funded Media Matters assigns 10 people to each Glenn Beck book, but I’ll just have to go by her Amazon.com book description: “One of my favorite ideas is, never to keep an unnecessary soldier,” Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1792. Neither Jefferson nor the other | Read More »
CORRECTING MSNBC’S RACHEL MADDOW: Does Wisconsin really have seven towns named after labor unions?
Does Wisconsin really have seven towns named “Union,” all named after labor unions? Rachel Maddow mentioned this twice on MSNBC, so it surely must be true. From Wikipedia: Union is the name of some places in the U.S. state of Wisconsin: Union, Burnett County, Wisconsin, a town Union, Door County, Wisconsin, a town Union, Eau Claire County, Wisconsin, a town Union, Pierce County, Wisconsin, a | Read More »
MADDOW MUST BE FIRED: Rachel Maddow (a big part of Friday’s Weinergate scandal) decides not to talk about it at all?
That Rachel Maddow! Looking for truth under every rock! You can’t let a Congresssional sex scandal skip through the ace political reporter at MSNBC! Over at MSNBC’s The Maddow Blog, the most recent tweet (from Friday) is this: maddow: RT @RepWeiner: Tonight Me and Rachel on MSNBC. #ThePerfectFridayDateUhKindaSorta So, after the Memorial Day weekend, surely Anthony Weiner is coming back on the show? Or, surely, | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Lyin’ Queen Rachel Maddow disputes PolitiFact and lies again
Liberals lie, Rush Limbaugh has often said. Is it genetic? This was the final segment (12.32 minutes long!) on Thursday’s The Rachel Maddow Show: Rachel Maddow discusses the show’s policy of correcting errors and demonstrates why she is owed one from PolitiFact.com. “We also make a regular practice on this show of running corrections. We say something on the air–I say something on the air–that | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Ed Schultz calls Limbaugh a fat ass; Rachel Maddow lies again
MSNBC was my background noise again on Friday as I added the words “fleebagger” and “fleabagger” to the political lexicon. The channel is as bad as ever, and the events in Wisconsin make the biases even more clear. ED SCHULTZ Ed Schultz’s show usually takes off on Fridays for some crazed MSNBC jail crap, but he did a special on-location show from Madison, Wisconsin. It | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow’s “apology” today really isn’t one.
So you’re Rachel Maddow, and you’ve been caught snarking at a Christwire.com website that’s purely a spoof. (See yesterday’s post and, especially, the comments.) You apologize, say you staff isn’t really good at this Google fact-checking stuff, and take your lumps. But no… Rachel Maddow mentioned RedState again. We’re all nuts, you see. Because she says so. Her segment began by attacking Glenn Beck. He’s | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow attacks RedState, and I’ve had enough
Rachel Maddow attacked RedState today, and I’ll get to that a bit later. I generally have liked respectfully disagreeing with her positions, but the whole of MSNBC isn’t worth even a respectful disagreement anymore. NY DAILY NEWS’S STANLEY CROUCH PRAISES MADDOW From today’s New York Daily News: Rachel Maddow is a hero for telling the truth; Fox News keeps spinning lies Stanley Crouch Monday, January | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: What Rachel Maddow said to David Letterman.
Have I said over and over again that I hate hypocrisy? Have I said over and over again that Rachel Maddow is beyond stupid in failing to acknowledge MSNBC’s Democratic partisanship? Maddow did it again on David Letterman’s show. From the Los Angeles Times: About (Late) Last Night: Rachel Maddow and David Letterman take on Fox News December 16, 2010 | 7:08 am David Letterman | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow corrects her mistakes? Maybe not.
KEITH OLBERMANN MENTIONS RED STATE (TWICE) The Olberdouche cited the RedState “Did You Vote Republican For Nothing?” post. In a next-day story about Sarah Palin’s allegedly tanking book sales, KO said that soon “The books will be selling for fifty cents at Red State and NewsMax.” The first mention led to this RedState discussion: So all 4 or 5 people watching Olbergoober are you republicans? | Read More »
