MSNBC’s Phil Griffin: Fox News is spying on me! With RAYS! In My HEAD!
This is a highly entertaining media tantrum: Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, says there’s something fishy about Tuesday’s ratings for the Fox News Channel, which were up significantly from a day earlier when Fox News debuted its new schedule. And he wants an investigation. “Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic. On the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, | Read More »
MSNBC and Organizing For Action Coordinate Activity
Organizing For Action, Barack Obama’s equivalent of Woodrow Wilson’s Committee on Public Information, has a website up of climate deniers in the House of Representatives. OFA wants its members to harass the “climate deniers”. Today is Organizing for Action’s big climate change day. They intend to march out into the public square and attack members of Congress, conservatives, and others who aren’t in on their | Read More »
Julian Assange Had A Point
By now, we’ve all gone through the mourning period requisite to accept that any privacy we expected to have as American Citizens is dead. The War on Terror killed it. In a sense, Osama Bin Laden won. He’s spiking the football down in hell as we speak. If he hated us for our freedoms, he should lighten up a bit and chill. Those freedoms are increasingly becoming non-existent – a casualty of war so to speak.
The recent revelations of Edward Snowden, even if partially inflated by bravado and imagination, suggest that everything I’ve written above is the sad truth about Post-modern America. We are increasingly becoming The Orwell State.
And the people wielding all the special powers we enacted to fight The War on Terror still wield them without any let-up. They wield them without let-up right after they announced the war was coming to an end. So if the GWOT is over and done with, who does the administration consider the enemy? Or worse yet, does the administration even feel the need for an enemy? Do they consider the police state a naturally justifiable equilibrium? All of these questions above are fine and dandy for batting around the dorm hall amidst a cloud of epistemological bong smoke. If you don’t like the answers to any of the questions I’ve posited then here’s the only question that matters: what do you intend to do about it? Glen Greenwald offers one response below.

Is “IRS” The New “N-Word”?
There is nothing, nothing, in politics more infuriating than the Democrats’ relentless use of racial division to cement the kind of thinking Courtland Milloy illustrated in his latest Washington Post column. The ever-expanding list of things that are considered racist to criticize so long as Obama is president is perhaps the most absurd manifestation of this line of thinking. Nearly all of these fail “the | Read More »
MSNBC (!): Democratic operatives trying to undermine #benghazi whistle-blowers.
Apparently nobody told the n-dimensional geniuses over at the White House that it’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up. Transcript of remarks, courtesy of the Weekly Standard: “There is something called Benghazi going on,” said [NBC's Lisa] Myers. “And I think the Democrats now are starting to worry about it. I started–I got calls from a number of Democrats yesterday trying to undermine Greg Hicks’s | Read More »
NC NAACP President Compares Republicans to George Wallace (A Democrat)
On yesterday’s edition of “All In with Chris Hayes” we were greeted with narrative creation at its finest as host Chris Hayes attempted to define the arguments in favor of Voter Identification laws in North Carolina as merely the spoils of victory as opposed to any type of actual reasoned position. HAYES: If a skeptical person looks at what’s going on in north carolina and | Read More »

Children of the collective
William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection juxtaposes two recent incidents to conclude there is “something wrong in the water” over at MSNBC. First, the left-wing network offered an extremely creepy segment in which host Krystal Ball coaxed her 5-year-old daughter into offering a politically correct “from the mouths of babes” endorsement of gay marriage. Among the many things wrong with this segment, it was necessary for | Read More »
All Your Kids Are Belong to Us
This is profoundly unbelievable. Professor Melissa Harris-Perry of Tulane and MSNBC fame wants us to start treating children as property of the state. In an MSNBC promo spot — a promo spot for a supposed news channel — Melissa Harris-Perry says: “We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had a private notion of children, your kid | Read More »
Let me explain why Henry Repeating Rifles advertises on MSNBC.
Background: Don’t tell us that Al Sharpton and MSNBC are hypocrites? Noooo!! The Reverend Al opened his show by praising President Obama’s efforts to promote tougher gun control laws. But 28 minutes into the show, a commercial appeared for, of all things . . . Henry Repeating Rifles. Go to Henry Rifle’s website and you’ll find one rifle described as “big, brutal and beautiful” and | Read More »
VIDEO: MSNBC Contributor Decries Hateful “Crackers”
MSNBC Contributor Karen Finney used a racial slur recently while discussing immigration reform and the Latino response to the issue. Not surprisingly, no one on the panel she was featured in even seemed to notice her language. Said Finney: We saw in droves, you know, the Latino community moving over to the Democratic Party, largely because of the tone. And you had even Republicans in | Read More »
VIDEO: Thomas Ricks Rolls Fox News
Thomas Ricks, author of The Generals, recently appeared on Fox News to discuss the Benghazi terror attack and ostensibly to shed light on his book that has been slipping in sales. Jon Scott, the host, began by asking Ricks’ opinion on the controversial pick by President Obama of Susan Rice to serve as the new Secretary of State. Ricks, however, had his own agenda and | Read More »
Joe ‘good news for the president’ Scarborough is an embarrassment even for MSNBC
Just when you think that MSNBC can’t be any more in the tank for Obama’s reelection campaign, they managed this week to run the ball even further down the field. MSNBC, and their Comcast overlords, give loads of money to the Obama campaign, their hosts are all Obama defenders — so much so that they may as well slap the Obama 2012 logo on their TV chryon and call it a day.
MSNBC was treated like a celebrity in Charlotte. Apparently hundreds of convention-goers waited in rain and in lines to see MSNBC programs, and MSNBC swag items were among the hottest things to buy. Liberals are star struck with the network, and for good reason. MSNBC has repeatedly spun the Obama line in good times and in bad — especially in bad during this campaign. This isn’t a surprise, because money talks, and according to a recent report from ABC, employees from Comcast (MSNBC’s parent company) “have contributed more money to President Obama’s reelection bid than employees from any other organization.”

Pale Horse, Puny Rider
MSNBC and the rest of hopelessly leftist media lost something when they fired Keith Olbermann. There were moments such as the night Keith covered Scott Brown’s victory over Martha Coakley that I was convinced it was excellent self-parody. John Stewart can do funny artificial news but Keith just went out and killed it!*
So watching the likes of Chris Matthews, Juan Williams and Chuck Todd try and fill the void is sort of akin to watching AA Ball after an evening of seeing the Yanks play live. But the effort and determination to demonize the GOP is still there! You and 99% of the rest of America probably aren’t watching, but these guys know exactly which lines The Minister of Propaganda want them to trumpet. Only the idiots who vandalized Mia Love’s Wikipedia page have played the Race-Card in a more laughable fashion.

Is The Media Coordinating On Race Baiting? Ask John Harris and Politico
We should not forget that John Harris of the Politico, who asked the stupidest and most irrelevant questions of any moderator during the GOP Primary debates, is married to the former head of NARAL in Virginia. We should not forget that Jonathan Allen of the Politico once worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz. We should not forget that Andy Barr of the Politico left the Politico | Read More »
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 »
