  • LOL: Andrea Mitchell Claims Social Programs 'Gutted' By Sequester

    Quick: how much were Social Security, Medicaid and food stamps cut by the sequester? Zero, you say? Those programs were exempted from sequester cuts, and Medicare was reduced by only 2%? Correctomundo! So what was Andrea Mitchell thinking when she claimed on her MSNBC show that the sequester "gutted" social programs? You tell me. View the video here.

    CNN Analyst: Many Companies Using Obamacare as 'Excuse' to Cut Employee Health Insurance By Matt Hadro Created 08/22/2013 - 4:35pm CNN's global economic analyst says many companies are just using Obamacare as an "excuse" to make employee health insurance cuts they already planned to make. "[H]health care inflation is between seven and ten percent a year. And that's with or without Obamacare. So I do think that you're going to see a lot of companies using Obamacare and the ACA as an excuse to make changes in their plan that they might have been planning to make already," said Rana...

    ...Network evening news viewers in 2012 never once heard the embarrassing prediction by Obama’s economic team that passage of the $787 billion “stimulus” would halt the rise of unemployment at 8%. (In reality, the jobless rate stayed above that mark for 44 months, the worst economic performance since the Great Depression.) There was just a single network mention last year (on ABC) of Obama’s broken promise of cutting the federal budget deficit “by half by the end of my first term in office.” Reporters on CBS and NBC never once brought up this inconvenient truth. All three evening newscasts buried...

Matt R. Salmon, the son, said MSNBC canceled his appearance because “they had intended to be critical of him and … I was unwilling to do so.” He also said CNN “seemed very gung ho about” an interview at first, but when he said he was supportive of his father, “they seemed to lose interest.”

    Since so many in the media cannot resist turning every tragedy into a political talking point, it was perhaps inevitable that (1) someone would try to link the shooting rampage at the Batman movie in Colorado to the Tea Party, and that (2) some would try to make it a reason to impose more gun control laws. Too many people in the media cannot seem to tell the difference between reporting the news and creating propaganda. NBC News apparently could not resist doctoring the transcript of the conversation between George Zimmerman and the police after the Trayvon Martin shooting. Now...

The audience howled its approval as Gingrich tore into the “destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media…” As...

Cain trailed in the category with just 20 percent... Electability, however, was not most Republicans' top priority when selecting a candidate: 58 percent said they believe it's more important to have a nominee who agrees with them on the issues than one who can beat Mr. Obama next year. Thirty-nine percent said the opposite. But the race could still change; seven in 10 Republican primary voters say it is still too...

    There can be only one reason liberals instinctively call conservatives racists. Like Pavlov's dogs, they have been conditioned to do so by their masters in the Democrat-media complex. Ivan Petrovich Pavlov was a Russian scientist who won the Nobel Prize in 1904 for his studies of the digestive system. While studying the impact of saliva on digestion, he noticed that his test subjects - dogs - salivated even when there was no food present. Eventually, he realized the dogs were responding to the lab coats worn by his assistants. He expanded his experiments to determine the reason. ... His findings...

    Chris Matthews was nearly apoplectic in his questioning of Tea Party Express co-founder Sal Russo on the topic of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and her controversial re-imagining of history where the founding fathers found a way to end slavery in their lifetime. Repeatedly calling Bachmann a "balloon head," Matthews demanded to know why Russo and the Tea Party wanted Bachmann to give a response to the State of the Union address or, more generally, why they ever wanted her to open her mouth in the first place?

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow called out CNN for airing the Tea Party response to the State of the Union address by Michele Bachman last night: “A national news network decided that they would give Michele Bachmann a job that her own party never did.” Maddow asked Fmr. RNC Communications Dir. Doug Heye: “Isn’t it a little bit weird though to have two responses run on a national news network as if they were equivalent?” This segment sent new CNN hire Piers Morgan to the Twittersphere to pronounce his disapproval: Ms Maddow doesn’t think it’s ‘news’ when 2 different factions of Rep...

    If anyone thinks that MSNBC has gotten softer since the departure of Keith Olbermann, think again. Even without the bombastic talk show host, MSNBC still reigns as the network of insane liberal hatred. Matt Schneider reports at Mediaite that Chris Matthews was "nearly apoplectic" when he interrogated Sal Russo of the Tea Party Express. Schneider writes: Repeatedly calling Bachmann a “balloon head,” Matthews demanded to know why Russo and the Tea Party wanted Bachmann to give a response to the State of the Union address or, more generally, why they ever wanted her to open her mouth in the first...

    Media Matters founder David Brock holds Glenn Beck responsible for three assassination attacks that took place last year.During a Chris Matthews Show interview that aired Wednesday, Brock discussed Saturday’s Tucson shooting rampage and went on to list three 2010 instances in which somebody targeted liberals.“I mean, Glenn Beck himself has been responsible for three thwarted assassination attacks this year,” Brock said. “Well, you want to know what they are? So he burned Nancy Pelosi in effigy on his set, he tried to poison her with a chalice. Some weeks later somebody tried to firebomb Nancy Pelosi’s house. That guy’s mother...
  • (Video) Media Matters’ David Brock: Glenn Beck Responsible for Three Assassination Attempts

    David Brock of the progressive Media Matters appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball and outlandishly claimed Glenn Beck is “responsible for three assassination attempts.” This is just one of those videos that is packed with so much dumb you can’t gather words together to describe it. Instead, I recommend you just watch it to see the stupidity flowing from this mans mouth.

    "Salvadoran Immigrant Ingmar Guandique Found Guilty of Murdering D.C. Intern Chandra Levy [12:45 p.m. ET]" That was the breaking news headline that was blasted to my inbox from ABCNews.com regarding today's murder conviction of the suspect in the 2001 murder of the former congressional intern for then-Rep. Gary Condit (D). In the Associated Press story by Matthew Barakat at the ABCNews.com website, there is no mention of the fact that Guandique is an illegal immigrant nor of the fact that he is involved in the ruthless gang Mara Salvatrucha, more commonly known as MS-13. This despite the fact that numerous...
  • MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan: The Answer To America’s Woes Is ‘Obviously’ Revolution

    Mediaite ^ | 11-9-10
    Given the polarized nature of American politics in the last several years, accusations of inciting violence on both sides have become somewhat cliched. But this afternoon, MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan took to his show to yell fire in a crowded theater, asking viewers, “Are things in our country so bad that it might actually be time for a revolution? The answer is obviously ‘yes.’” It’s difficult to explain the following clip without appearing to indulge in hyperbole, so it’s probably best to simply state the facts: Ratigan invites on cartoonist Ted Rall to talk about his new book The Anti-American Manifesto,...
