MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow’s “apology” today really isn’t one.
So you’re Rachel Maddow, and you’ve been caught snarking at a Christwire.com website that’s purely a spoof. (See yesterday’s post and, especially, the comments.) You apologize, say you staff isn’t really good at this Google fact-checking stuff, and take your lumps. But no… Rachel Maddow mentioned RedState again. We’re all nuts, you see. Because she says so. Her segment began by attacking Glenn Beck. He’s | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow attacks RedState, and I’ve had enough
Rachel Maddow attacked RedState today, and I’ll get to that a bit later. I generally have liked respectfully disagreeing with her positions, but the whole of MSNBC isn’t worth even a respectful disagreement anymore. NY DAILY NEWS’S STANLEY CROUCH PRAISES MADDOW From today’s New York Daily News: Rachel Maddow is a hero for telling the truth; Fox News keeps spinning lies Stanley Crouch Monday, January | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: What Rachel Maddow said to David Letterman.
Have I said over and over again that I hate hypocrisy? Have I said over and over again that Rachel Maddow is beyond stupid in failing to acknowledge MSNBC’s Democratic partisanship? Maddow did it again on David Letterman’s show. From the Los Angeles Times: About (Late) Last Night: Rachel Maddow and David Letterman take on Fox News December 16, 2010 | 7:08 am David Letterman | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow corrects her mistakes? Maybe not.
KEITH OLBERMANN MENTIONS RED STATE (TWICE) The Olberdouche cited the RedState “Did You Vote Republican For Nothing?” post. In a next-day story about Sarah Palin’s allegedly tanking book sales, KO said that soon “The books will be selling for fifty cents at Red State and NewsMax.” The first mention led to this RedState discussion: So all 4 or 5 people watching Olbergoober are you republicans? | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: No, Lawrence O’Donnell, we’re not all socialists.
Lawrence O’Donnell has said that he’s a socialist a few times now (which probably means he’s a communist). From a segment on today’s The Last Word: We need to take the political sting out of the word “socialist.” Why? By the way, while the Newsweek cover did say “We’re all Socialists now” and Milton Friedman did write, in Time in 1965, “We’re all Keynesians now,” | Read More »
Why does Rachel Maddow advertise Fox News?
I don’t watch television much and I particularly do not watch much in terms of cable news. I prefer to get my news on the Internet from a variety of sources and make my own decisions. Anyway, I have of course heard about the Keith Olbermann situation. The MSNBC host was suspended for allegedly donating to Democrat congressional candidates. After viewing an article about it | Read More »

Bring Back Olbermann
I’m not a fan of Olbermann’s politics or his sports commentary, nor do I watch his show or watch MSNBC. Having said that, it is the height of hypocrisy for MSNBC to pretend their politics are not hard core left-wing, or that the public is some how immune to understanding MSNBC’s politics are hard left. Maddow is a socialist — and they replaced a conservative | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Maddow defends Olbermann, claims MSNBC is a news organization
“We’re not a political operation. Fox is. We are a news operation.” –Rachel Maddow, The Rachel Maddow Show, November 5, 2010. The Keith Olbermann affair is a head-scratcher. He’s been a liberal hack for years. Why is everything happening now? For years, Keith Olbermann ended his Countdown show with the hyper-partisan: “XXX days since ‘Mission Accomplished’ in Iraq.” For years, Olbermann has attacked Republicans every | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Lawrence O’Donnell interviews Jimmy McMillan, has no idea he ran for NYC mayor twice
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Isn’t it (rent) more of a New York City issue? Did you consider running for mayor instead of governor? Meet internet sensation Jimmy McMillan of The Rent Is Too Damn High party. He’s running for New York governor. He ran for New York City mayor in 2005 and again in 2009. You’d think O’Donnell’s crack staff would do a basic bio of McMillan and | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Rachel Maddow interviews Meghan McCain (again)
RACHEL MADDOW: So much of the right’s defense of her (Sarah Palin) has been defending her from supposedly sexist attacks on the left. This Rachel Maddow and this Meghan McCain are really, really smart people. They must be. They’re on tv. “Supposedly sexist attacks from the left.” Rachel, Rachel, Rachel. Are you deaf, dumb and blind? You don’t remember anything of what’s happened these past | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Lawrence O’Donnell changes interview terms on Ron Paul, praises next guest Alvin Greene
MSNBC WATCH, because somebody has to. On Wednesday, September 29th, I panned the new MSNBC show, “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell. On Saturday, October 9th, I commented that Rachel Maddow had begged Republicans to come on her show, and when one did (Art Robinson of Oregon), she gave a totally unfair interview, then savaged him the next day, when he wasn’t present. Another Republican | Read More »
Rachel Maddow’s blog bans my post (And she wonders why Republicans don’t appear on her show?)
Rachel Maddow can dish it out, but she can’t take it. About a week ago, she said that Tip O’Neill probably coined “All Politics Is Local” back in the 1930s. We’ve long known that Tip O’Neill himself denied coinage. There was no correction and no response to my scholarship. Hey, it’s only national tv. After the Rand Paul interview, Rachel Maddow wondered why no other | Read More »
TV REVIEW: MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell is terrible!
He’s (Obama’s) bashed Fox a number of times, but maybe it fires up the base. On the same day, the White House practically endorsed MSNBC, with Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton saying: “If you’re on the left, if you’re somebody like Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow or one of the folks who helps to keep our government honest and pushes and prods to make sure | Read More »
Origin of “All Politics Is Local” (attention Rachel Maddow)
“Republicans are running nationally. Democrats are running locally. Which is why, even if you’ve never heard of Scott McAdams, you sure as heck have heard of Joe Miller. It is quite possible you have never heard of Chris Coons, but you have definitely heard of Christine O’Donnell. Even if you onl get your news from Saturday Night Live. I do not raise this issue in | Read More »
Clever Rubio/Maddow ad.
Background: Marco Rubio released an ad last week – one that was pretty clever in and of itself, and possibly even ‘cheeky’ – taking advantage of Rachel Maddow being… well, Rachel Maddow (and including a cheerful invitation for people who disagreed with Rubio’s tax relief views to watch Maddow, instead). Ms. Maddow responded by giving Marco some more campaign ad fodder: Way to make Marco’s | Read More »
