MADDOW MUST BE FIRED: Rachel Maddow (a big part of Friday’s Weinergate scandal) decides not to talk about it at all?
That Rachel Maddow! Looking for truth under every rock! You can’t let a Congresssional sex scandal skip through the ace political reporter at MSNBC! Over at MSNBC’s The Maddow Blog, the most recent tweet (from Friday) is this: maddow: RT @RepWeiner: Tonight Me and Rachel on MSNBC. #ThePerfectFridayDateUhKindaSorta So, after the Memorial Day weekend, surely Anthony Weiner is coming back on the show? Or, surely, | Read More »
Rachel Maddow is a Dumb (Fill in the blank)
I just have to fire off a quick diary entry here because I almost busted by laptop. Did anyone have the unfortunate opportunity to see Rachel Maddow on Monday night? If not, you can view the pertinent video at RealClearPolitics- just type in “Maddow+man cave+ Daniels” into the search box. There, you will see a 19-minute video from the May 16th show where she | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Lyin’ Queen Rachel Maddow disputes PolitiFact and lies again
Liberals lie, Rush Limbaugh has often said. Is it genetic? This was the final segment (12.32 minutes long!) on Thursday’s The Rachel Maddow Show: Rachel Maddow discusses the show’s policy of correcting errors and demonstrates why she is owed one from PolitiFact.com. “We also make a regular practice on this show of running corrections. We say something on the air–I say something on the air–that | Read More »
MSNBC WATCH: Ed Schultz calls Limbaugh a fat ass; Rachel Maddow lies again
MSNBC was my background noise again on Friday as I added the words “fleebagger” and “fleabagger” to the political lexicon. The channel is as bad as ever, and the events in Wisconsin make the biases even more clear. ED SCHULTZ Ed Schultz’s show usually takes off on Fridays for some crazed MSNBC jail crap, but he did a special on-location show from Madison, Wisconsin. It | Read More »
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 »
