Why Keith Olbermann’s claim to have lost five friends on Sept 11th is important
We first need to do a little review of the events that started Olbermann’s rise – please bear with me. After a bizarre exit from ESPN, he did a year of “All Lewinsky, All The Time TV”. Apparently that did not give him the “hard news” chops he craved, so he took a little hiatus, doing a radio show for ABC.
IS THAT MSNBC I SEE ADVERTISING ON REDSTATE?
I’ll keep it short and sweet – if you need money THAT badly guys, ask us. In my view you might as well take money from Hugo Chavez or Robert Mugabe. MSNBC? I am going to log out for today, then log back in tonight, and pretend this never happened.
Campbell Brown: CNNs Rachel Maddow with a Pretty Face
Campbell Brown just finished another edition of CNN’s new “No Bias, No Bull” campaign ’08 reportage. The first half she spent reviewing every historical incident where the term “lipstick on a pig” was used, arguing that Barack Obama is being persecuted by the Mccain campaign. The second half she turned to her “reporter on the ground” in Anchorage, who gushed a whole pile of bias | Read More »

Has the press seen the light?
The press went more than a little nuts for about a week and a half, then realized that they were making fools of themselves and just as abruptly stopped in the past couple of days. They didn’t get more objective, however, they just stop being hysterical about it. They went back to where they were before it all started, not blatant but subtly slanted to | Read More »
Advertising on RedState
The expectation must be for lots of Obot trollers to be dropping in. How else could one explain MSNBC advertising here?

56 Days until Election Day September 9, 2008 QUOTE OF THE DAY: "They say they are not going to tax you and your family just businesses. So as long as you do not buy food from a grocery store, gas from a gas station or get a paycheck from a business you have nothing to worry about." – Sen.

Long Time Coming
In yet another “man bites dog” story, a cable TV show decided to try to emulate Fox News–except with ideological leanings on the other side of what Fox’s are perceived to be–and found its fate to be precisely the same as the fates of most radio programs that try to emulate the success of Rush Limbaugh even as they take the opposite political tack: MSNBC | Read More »
Rachel Maddow’s New Show on MSNBC starts off with mocking God and those of faith
At the end of Keith Obermann’s show (ahhh, the remote control fell and accidentally changed the channel) he introduced MSNBC’s latest leftist, Rachel Maddow, who couldn’t wait to inaugurate her new set with some good old fashion Religion Bashing. Trying to knock the glow off of Sarah Palin, Maddow jumped at the chance to tell us how the Alskan Governor is a God zealot who, | Read More »
NBC Reassigment of Olbermann Tied to Palin and Iran
NBC has decided to modify the roles both Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews play throughout the rest of the campaign. Now they are merely political analysts, offering their leftist slant on the campaign. Until now, they have been anchoring MSNBC’s coverage. There are a number of excuses being given as to why this change was made. The dominant one that the mainstream media is running | Read More »
MSNBC makes changes
There are so many gems in this article about shuffling at MSNBC that it’s hard to decide where to begin…. After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. | Read More »
Goodbye, Keith. Goodbye Chris. We’ll Miss You (Not!)
I awoke this morning to wonderful news. Not only are McCain-Palin up by 10 points, but MSNBC has put the axe to Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann. They are ‘perceived to be too biassed’, according to MSNBC President Phil Griffin. Of course, these two crazy lefties are being replaced by – you guessed it! two other crazy lefties, David Gregory and Rachel Maddow. But still | Read More »
MSNBCs Rachel Maddow: LIAR!
I never thought I would find a more liberal “journalist” than Keith Olbermann (no link provided as I don’t wish to promote his form of politics), but tonight, on the popular MSNBC program Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the show was guest hosted by Rachel Maddow (again, no link, again for the same reason). She has taken over from Keith Olbermann in my mind as the | Read More »
MSNBC v. Al-Jazeera
Quick observation from the convention. Who has a better spot in the convention center, MSNBC or Al Jazeera? In the opinion of the crowd I’m with, Al Jazeera. MSNBC is pretty much behind the stage, with Al Jazeera next to them. Best seat? Fox News and CNN. Not that any of us should be surprised by that. I’ll have pictures as soon as I can | Read More »
Obama’s speech not memorable, but his creepy Stalinist setting is
The effusive left-wing media reaction to last night’s Obama acceptance speech was to be expected. Even some conservatives got caught up in the moment. As passions have cooled, the praise has become more tempered. Very few people can recite one memorable phrase from the speech. This morning on MSNBC’s pathetic Morning Joe, Peggy Noonan actually took The Hack Whose Name Will Not Be Mentioned to | Read More »
