Comparison: Economic Reporting Under Bush, and Under Obama
Ed Frank created an interesting little video that serves as a stark reminder of how harsh the Old Media was on Bush’s “faltering” economy in comparison to today’s hearts and flowers style of reporting during the age of Obama, even though the stats are far, far worse under Obama than they ever were under Bush. Frank’s video is shocking for its revelation of how Bush | Read More »
Time Tries to Turn Obama Into Cute, Cuddly Muppet
You want a blatant example of the Old Media’s over-the-top, gobsmacked love affair with Obama? Well, one would be hard pressed not to see Time Magazine’s latest piece by Nancy Gibbs as a perfect example of the media ignoring all ills and of projecting only what is wonderful onto the dearly beloved as this piece represents. The lionization of Obama is bad enough, but the | Read More »
No surprise: Anti-Palin AP snubs Alaska’s Governor
In a story headlined “Alaskans concerned about North Korea’s missiles” the Associated Press continues in its Anti-Palin tradition. Mary Pemberton, who wrote the story, quoted several of Alaska’s citizens as well as “the state’s political leaders.” Among the latter, Pemberton included statements from Rep. Don Young and Sen. Mark Begich. Conspicuously absent from the article was any mention of Gov. Sarah Palin, who has been | Read More »
Foreign Press Assails Obama’s Expensive ‘Date Night,’ U.S. Press Not So Much
It is interesting, instructive, and a little disheartening to notice that the foreign press is much more shocked than the U.S. press is by the arrogance and expense of the Obama’s “date night” that cost the taxpayers nearly one million dollars last week. The Australian and British press, for instance, scoffed at the absurd cost of the one night visit to New York that Obama | Read More »
Clarence Thomas and Miguel Estrada were not left-wing toadies
‘Compelling life stories of minorities’ are apparently only compelling to Democrats if you end up bowing to the mindless twaddle of expansionist, racist, divisive rhetoric of the left. While the Democrats are running around calling anybody ‘racist’ that opposes small-minded, untalented, bigoted, leftist hack Sonia Sotomayor, let us remember these names: Clarence Thomas and Miguel Estrada. Both of them had compelling life stories that make | Read More »
On Joe Biden’s Idiocy, Nancy Pelosi’s Arrogance & Wanda Sykes’ Mortality
Last week, as the leader of the free world sat yucking it up at the White House Press Dinner, his chum, the sassy Wanda Sykes (typically a funny comedian) tore Rush Limbaugh a new one by intentionally twisting his words into things and sentiments that he did not say and did not mean. Of course, it was all in the name of humor. Then she | Read More »
More Media Malpractice: You Thought I was Joking About Gary Sinise, Didn’t You?
I hate to pull an “I told you so,” but… well, I told you so. Remember a few days ago when I showed how an unsubstantiated rumor becomes political “fact” in the Old Media? I reported that CNNs Peter Hamby found one woman that wondered if actor Gary Sinise might make a great GOP candidate and based an entirely fictional run for office on that | Read More »
Palin Derangement Syndrome Engulfs Baltimore Sun’s TV Guy
Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik should check into a clinic somewhere to have his delicate mental balance checked. Maybe they might have some nice medication he can take to temper his Palin Derangement Syndrome? His is so bad he can’t even write about a little reality TV show without indulging unnecessary vitriol and hate. It’s interesting that critic Zurawik gets so filled with hate | Read More »
Shocker: Obama Staffers Attend Secret Dinners With Lefty Media
The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz has let the cat out of the bag in the Post’s April 27 issue about a regularly scheduled secret media dinner attended by some of the top left-wing journalists in the country. But it isn’t just the lefty scribblers that have attended these secret, off-the-record dinners for these gatherings have each featured a guest. Rahm Emanuel, Sec. of the Treasury | Read More »
WaPost Slams Older Workers as ‘Lumbering,’ Less Talented
Looks like Washington Post Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt sort of put his foot in his mouth — or his pen as the case may be — in an April 27 editorial where he as much as called America’s older workers “lumbering” and less talented than “younger, nimbler” employees. In a nation that has one of its largest blocks of citizens in the “older” category, | Read More »
A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words!
As most of my regular readers are aware, I recently wrote a diary about President Obama’s Apologolooza/America sucks tour throughout Europe and at the G-20 Summit titled, “Mr. President, Do You Believe In American Exceptionalism?”. (Actually, it was his second Apologolooza world tour–we all remember the famous Berlin trip last summer during the general election where Obama apologized for America to the Germans, right?) Well, | Read More »
Obamideal: Magazine Photoshops Prez Image for Cover, Is It Ethical?
A few days ago Noel Sheppard brought to us the story of yet another example of how the star struck media is fawning over President Obama. But, when the story first broke of the photo of that lean, swimsuit wearing Obama gracing the cover of the next issue of Washingtonian Magazine, it wasn’t immediately realized that the photo itself was a photoshoppped image of the | Read More »
KC Star: Republicans Afraid of Limbaugh, Uses Democratic Press Release to ‘Prove’ It
Yael T. Abouhalkah is all excited to let the readers of the Kansas City Star know that he’s found another Republican politician that has had to grovel at the feet of Rush Limbaugh, apologizing to the radio giant for a slight cast his way. And to “prove” it Abouhalkah used a press release from the Democratic National Campaign Committee that said so. Yeah, nice unbiased | Read More »
GE shareholders complain about leftist MSNBC
Stockholder meetings are rarely dramatic events, but things got heated at Wednesday’s GE meeting of shareholders. GE CEO Jeffery Immelt and NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker had to field about ten questions from from shareholders unhappy with the leftward bias of the company’s cable outlet MSNBC and a charge that it’s business channel CNBC is being pushed in the same direction: First up was a | Read More »
This Guy Pretty Much Says It All.
Promoted by Caleb … Why aren’t Sheehan and the like called extremists for protesting but veterans are? GOOD QUESTION! It’s really too bad that the media won’t cover this video from Midnight Blue. But hey, it’s probably for the best with him being a “right-wing extremist” (translation-veteran) and all, right? This diary is cross-posted on The Minority Report.
