What to take away from the debunking of MSNBC’s fake Romney WaWa ‘scandal.’
Background: Mitt Romney made a campaign speech today that used the WaWa convenience store franchise’s touch screen sandwich menu feature to make the point of how more cool and efficient the private sector is, when compared to the government. MSNBC doctored the clip to make it look like Romney was merely astounded that we have touch screen sandwich menus now*. Lots of people called MSNBC | Read More »
Martin Bashir demonstrates the First Media Truth for Conservative/Republican Legislators.
In light of Martin Bashir’s somewhat… alarming foray into full-contact comparative religion (short version: Bashir attempted to consign Mitt Romney to hell, on-screen, because Bashir thinks that Romney is lying and lying is supposedly grounds for immediate damnation in the Mormon faith*), it’s probably time to revisit my old checklist on conservatives and the media. Romney campaign? This is more or less for your benefit, | Read More »
Reince Priebus gives MSNBC the business over the ‘War on Women.’
This is exactly what I want to see from the RNC: an adamant refusal to allow the Other Side to set the parameters of the fight. Transcript below the fold. THOMAS ROBERTS (MSNBC): …But is this the fact of the Republican Party or not? Because you say it’s a fiction and you don’t want to walk back the fact that, you know, the war on | Read More »
Chris Matthews, you ignorant slut.
I begged The Right Scoop for the embed code for this clip that they did for Ace of Spades HQ. Begged for it: For those without video access: it shows two clips from the same episode of the Chris Matthews show. In the first clip, Matthews and guests laughingly question George Bush’s (who is, I hear, a white guy and former American President) academic credentials; | Read More »
MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan Preaches Violent Revolution.
Meet Dylan Ratigan. If you’ve never heard of him, that’s because he’s a (hardcore liberal) host on MSNBC. He’s also a seditionist… oh, sorry. For the benefit of our readers with public school educations, a ‘seditionist’ is somebody who incites armed rebellion against his or her country. Here he is, talking with fellow seditionist Ted Rall about how armed revolt against the government now apparently | Read More »
Keith Olbermann is a historically illiterate buffoon.
“So what else is new?”, you ask? Well, apparently this time he was busy demonstrating that he was more pig-ignorant of American history than, say, Sharron Angle (Via AoSHQ). “Just for the record do you how many elections Abraham Lincoln lost in his lifetime?” [Keith "Moo" Olbermann] asked, leering into the camera. With drama benefitting Gloria Swanson as the fading star in Sunset Boulevard, Olbermann | Read More »
Racist Donny Deutsch slurs Marco Rubio (R CAND, FL-SEN).
Via Hot Air, check out the racial sensitivity of MSNBC/CNBC talking head Donnie Deutsch: ‘Coconut,’ for those lucky enough to have missed it up to this point, is a derogatory racial epithet hurled against dark-skinned individuals deemed insufficiently ‘authentic.’ It suggests that the individual in question is ‘brown on the outside, white on the inside.’ When used by someone of the same ethnic identity as | Read More »
Clinton won’t help Olbermann muck about in AR primaries.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) I don’t know if Mediaite deliberately omitted the reason for former President Bill Clinton’s refusal to attend a Keith Olbermann-boosted ‘free clinic event.’ It’s entirely possible that the actual reason (warning: FDL link) – that Clinton thinks that the event in question is a thinly-veiled primary campaign event against Senator Blanche Lincoln (D, AR) and for Democratic Senate hopeful Bill Halter | Read More »
FrankJ has some not-useful advice for MSNBC.
In responding to this post FrankJ noted that the underlying problem for MSNBC is that nobody particularly wants to watch them anyway, so he offered a suggestion to boost their viewership: Maybe if they set Keith Olbermann on fire and threw him off a building, people would tune in to see that. I’d consider it. So, that’s something for them to think about. I am | Read More »
I think MSNBC is trying to get the President shot at.
(H/T Ace of Spades, NewsBusters, & Hot Air) I’m aware that’s kind of an inflammatory statement, but hear me out. OK, remember last weekend, when there were a bunch of reports of armed people at the Arizona town hall? Lots of stories of bemused reporters trying to get their heads around the notion that in Arizona you can wander around with an AR-15 – Which | Read More »
Brian Faughnan on MSNBC.
The subject: This administration’s lack of transparency! The spokesperson for the Left: Jane Hamsher, of FireDogLake! The battle: …called on account of mutual agreement, more or less.
