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 »
The MSM Is Dumb: Episode A Billion
There is a lot of virtual ink being spilled today regarding Rick Santorum’s big billionaire donor Foster Friess, and his comments on birth control. The catalyst was an interview conducted by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell which, among other things, included the following exchange: In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Friess indicated that he thinks the contraception debate is a distraction and that he doesn’t understand | Read More »
The First Perry Debate: The Governors Dominate
Let me offer my takes on last night’s GOP primary debate (I saw all but the very end). -Short answer? The debate reinforced, rather than changed, my impression of each of the eight candidates on stage. Which is usually what these debates do, but there’s always the odd night when somebody really makes a good impression or shoots themself in the foot. -Globally, the bad | Read More »
Whose Idea Was it to have MSNBC Host a Debate?
Download Podcast | iTunes | Podcast Feed On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by economic advisor Jim Johnston about tax policy, but first, we discuss last night’s Republican debate hosted by the always one-sided MSNBC, the ridiculousness of some of the questions from Brian Williams, the lack of a focus on the issues that really matter to | Read More »
Ed Schultz and MSNBC Have Not Apologized to Neal Boortz Yet
Yesterday, I provided conclusive proof that MSNBC’s Ed Schultz had doctored a Neal Boortz quote to make it look like Neal Boortz was advocating white people in Atlanta murder black people. In reality, Boortz was advocating that victims of carjackings get conceal-carry permits and gun down the thugs trying to car jack them. Ed Schultz willfully and maliciously left out the key part of Boortz’s | Read More »
Ed Schultz Doctored a Neal Boortz Quote to Accuse Boortz of Advocating Murder
My WSB colleague and guru, the Talkmaster Neal Boortz, created a bit of controversy this past week over comments he made about shooting thugs in Atlanta. The controversy actually blew up because of Ed Schultz at MSNBC who claimed Boortz was advocating the murder of urban youths in Atlanta. In fact, you can see this screen shot from the Schutlz show highlighting Neal Boortz’s controversial | 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 »

This week’s winning caption comes to us from redguynabluestate. I still laugh when I think of Olby thinking that caption. See all the top captions below.

Olbermann is out (see story here). Let the festivities begin (I mean with this week’s caption contest). The contest will wind down Sunday night about 9:00pm. Have fun, and keep it family friendly.
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 »
A Brief Word In Defense of Keith Olbermann
As you know, Keith Olbermann was suspended from MSNBC for giving political contributions to three Democrats. For the past several years, Olbermann has been giving in-kind contributions to various Democrats by putting them on the air to let them go unchallenged and unhinged. See e.g. Alan Grayson. I was shocked that Olbermann got booted for giving money, considering he has for some time given aid | Read More »
Lean Leftward: MSNBC Ad Revealed
Jim Treacher posted this hilarious Keith Olbermann ad yesterday at The Daily Caller. Like Olby’s show, the esteem Keith has for Keith is by far the dominant message. (Full ad embedded below the fold.) Bu if you just can’t bear to click through and watch it, fear not! Treacher and Mary Katharine Ham have refined the ad for your viewing pleasure, below: . There’s really | Read More »
Glenn Beck Assassinated Martin Luther King
Rhetorically. Possibly with a rhetorical plate glass window. Just remember, YOU are the hate-mongers. You soulless, lost, Father Coughlin Nazi rhetorical assassins! (But he doesn’t mean that in a mean way.) OPEN THREAD.
NBC/MSNBC & YouTube teamed with progressive orgs with financial ties to ACORN in 2008
Well folks, looks like I could be “peeling off” a few more here. Not only do conservatives have to contend with Obama’s OFA (Organizing for America), progressive orgs like MoveOn, SEIU, et al in massive Get Out the Vote (GOTV) efforts but now I’ve discovered to my chagrin that NBC, MSNBC and YouTube are in the mix. How did I get here? I’m not going | Read More »
