Administration on wrong side of CNN freedom of conscience poll.
Here is something that needs to be pointed out (as Hot Air did): this poll on the public reaction to the Obama’s administration’s attack on freedom of conscience is skewed toward the liberal position in at least two ways. First, it polls adults, which traditionally skews things a couple points towards the Democrats; second, it took place after the administration/mainstream media blitz touting Obama’s compromise. | Read More »
RS Interviews: Heritage/AEI Post-debate reactions.
I talked with several folks from Heritage and AEI after the debate, in order to get their reactions to how the debate went, how it came off, and how they felt the debate came across to watchers. As you can see, spin rooms are kind of noisy; they’re also pretty focused places. Everybody in there – including probably you – needs a specific piece of | Read More »
The CNN/Heritage/AEI debate, the day after.
My post-debate take, which is of course made vastly more relevant by the fact that… I followed it onsite rather than online. Well, online at onsite. Generally, these events are a bit different from the inside, including (surprisingly) less chances to schmooze with the candidates than you’d expect. A ‘spin room’ is there primarily to get access to raw material for the article that you | Read More »
Crosshairs in the crosshairs.
Byron York is a very smart guy, and he’s done yeoman work in cataloging CNN’s horrible, horrible use of ‘crosshairs’ terminology in days gone past. But I’d just like to hammer this point home: said use of the term by CNN did not cause the following groups… PETA People who don’t like MasterCard Mystical nature spirits responsible for flooding conditions in California* People who don’t | Read More »
The CNN estimate of the Searchlight Rally.
(H/T: Instapundit) Guess how many people CNN reported showed up here: Go on, guess. Nope. Lower than that. Nope. Lower than that. Nope. Still lower. No, really. Give up? “Hundreds of people, at least dozens of people – we haven’t gotten a count of how many people turned out there…“ Video confirmation at link. Well, now we know why CNN gave Erick a job: they | Read More »
Gasoline on the fire of Erick’s CNN gig.
You may have noticed that a lot of the people being most virulent about Erick’s CNN gig are folks who don’t have, won’t have, and probably can’t have CNN gigs, or anything like that (the highest that they aspire to is to get on Maddow once) and it’s not unreasonable to assume that this probably bugs them. They’re in the Left-sphere, remember? Beyond a certain | Read More »
Anti-Tea Party Susan Roesgen out at CNN.
You may remember Susan Roesgen as the woman who rather notoriously played the role of Obama stimulus apologist while carrying a CNN microphone at the April 15th Chicago Tea Party (she was also the subject of some now-vanished Jon Stewart scorn over her coverage of a Fargo flood, but that’s a different story). Well, it seems that she’s become an unemployment statistic: Breaking: TVNewser has | Read More »
