Dishonest CNN factcheck II

    In another CNN “factcheck”, they tested the veracity of this Joe Biden statement: “…our commanding general in Afghanistan said the surge principle in Iraq will not work in Afghanistan.” CNN judged Biden’s statement to be “true”, but it’s not true. The drive-bys at CNN don’t understand the difference between a surge in forces and the surge strategy. Surge strategy = counterinsurgency strategy. The surge in | Read More »

    Dishonest CNN factcheck

    As I wrote here, Joe Biden was being less than honest when he said Obama would never meet with Iranian president Ahmadinejad without preconditions in the first year of his presidency. In a “factcheck”, CNN shows that they’re in the bag for Obama by parsing “leader” and “president”. Newsflash. President Ahmadinejad is an Iranian leader and the country’s highest elected official. Whether he is the | Read More »

    Impartiality

    Gwen Ifill, the moderator for Thursdays Vice Presidential debate, is releasing a book detailing the spectacular rise of Barack Obama. Appearantly, the McCain camp was not told this when the debates were being negotiated. How wrong is this? What would happen if Hannity or Limbaugh were offered up to moderate? Where is the out rage over this gross example of bias? This is just another | Read More »

    Keeping the MSM Honest: “Life long Democrats” are NOT Swing Voters

    Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. This morning’s Detroit News features an article detailing the return of the “Reagan Democrats” and the importance Michigan’s independent and cross-over voters have as we help elect the next leader of the free world.  There’s a picture of a burly looking Macomb County man, scraggly hair and blue jeans, sitting in front of his big black motorcycle, because apparently | Read More »

    Another Blatant Bias (CNN website)

    CNN PoliticalTicker First, read the quotes of what John McCain said and compare to the title of this article. Note that nowhere in the quotes does John McCain say that Sarah Palin is or could be the next Reagan or Clinton. McCain is saying is that we have had Presidents who came from being state Governors and were underestimated by the media at the time | Read More »

    Squandering The Palin Pick

    This might make me very unpopular, but I have to be honest, I now think McCain picking Sarah Palin for his Vice-President was a mistake … that is; if what he really was looking for in a VP was nothing more than a highly-scripted cheerleader, then picking Governor Palin was not the wisest decision; In fact, it could not just lose him the election, but | Read More »

    Michael Halperin Wants To Have Obama’s Baby

    Our old friend Mark Halperin is at it again. After spending much of the 2004 campaign with his eyes locked on Democrat talking points as firmly as his lips were bonded to John Kerry’s posterior, Halp-less has released his ‘analysis’ of last night’s debate. (see http://www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,1845106,00.html) There are echoes throughout of the infamous October 2004 memo, where young Mark directed the ABC news organization to | Read More »

    They watched the debate at the New York Times

    Perhaps the New York Times‘ editors had asked Adam Nagourney and Jeff Zeleny to write something more-or-less objective about last night’s debate, and they are fine for the first several paragraphs, but then they slip into a bitter and disgruntled mode: Mr. McCain, in the kind of misstep that no doubt would have been used by Republicans against Mr. Obama, mangled the name of the | Read More »

    Palin v. Biden: Who’s the real ticket-killer?

    “Mainstream media” (MSM) never was an accurate representation of what this country’s major print and broadcast news sources are and what they do. “Mainstream” is defined, when used as an adjective, as “representing the prevailing attitudes, values and practices of a society or group.” The media, as a group, certainly has a set of prevailing attitudes, values and practices, but they are not those of | Read More »

    Three new Michigan polls: Liberal Media (all but) ignores survey that shows McCain lead

    Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. As I read recent poll numbers here in Michigan and across the United States, two things jump right out at me.  First, let’s cut the bologna sandwiches… Barack Obama is clearly surging.  Second, he’s built so big a lead in states like Michigan that his volunteers obviously needn’t worry and can probably take the rest of the election season | Read More »

    VDH on Sarah Palin

    Victor Davis Hanson says what many of us are thinking about the Arctic Fox. The gist..”Ronald Reagan knew more about human nature, and thus what drives the Soviet Union than did all the Ivy-League Soviet specialists that surrounded Jimmy Carter-much less the Sally Quins and Maureen Dowds of that age. We in America, unlike the Europeans, know this intuitively, grasp that a Harry Truman figured | Read More »

    Rathergate II: It’s not just CBS this time, it’s the entire 4th Estate.

    No matter how bad their pro-Democratic/anti-Republican bias got, the GOP and its candidates have shied away from confronting the MSM on it – after all, they own(ed) the airwaves and we would need them at some point. However, new media has made this reasoning largely obsolete, and with many crossing the line into practically campaigning in favor of Barack Obama, we cannot allow them to | Read More »

    Of press bias and polls

    The last 2 weeks have been an education for those of us who did not believe in press bias. The speed and ferocity with which the national media have pounced on every misstep and inconsistency by the McCain/Palin campaign has been shocking. A man with a lifelong reputation for honesty and integrity has been portrayed a liar based on press indignation with two minor web | Read More »

    One Cheap Practical Way For The McCain/Palin Campaign To Combat Daily MSM/Obama Talking Points.

    The idea: A web based daily news review show openly challenging and refuting the “facts” presented to the American people by the Obamaphile MSM. Upload each show on YouTube, LiveLeak, GoogleVideo, etc. and have downloadable versions in all audiovisual formats (mpg, mp4, avi, wmv, etc.) hosted on johnmccain.com and mirror sites. The concept is simple; for the next 40 to 50 days, selected members of | Read More »

    The Obama Campaign/MSM are regaining their footing …

    As a lot of people are beginning to notice, after the Palin pick sent the Obama Campaign and his cohorts in the media into spastic paroxysms of insanity and hatred, the two entities (to the extent that they’re actually two separate entities) seem to have re-established their previously smooth-running hand-in-hand relationship. Much as we don’t want to admit it, the Obama Campaign is clawing its | Read More »
