    Washington Examiner ^ | July 3, 2015 | 5:38 PM | Barbara Boland
    The "mainstream media...are partisans" who protect Barack Obama and “are ready for Hillary,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said in an interview with Glenn Beck Thursday where he criticized Republicans for wanting reporters “to like them.” For conservatives, there is no such thing as a “nice” reporter, argued Cruz. “You see Republicans, when they are interviewed by left-wing reporters, and they get afraid, they want them to like them,” Cruz said. “They are not going to like us; they hate us!” One day a young staffer described a reporter to Cruz as “really, really nice.” “You know what? No, she’s not,”...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) —Organizers of next month's Miss USA pageant say "the show will go on," despite NBC's decision to not broadcast the event after splitting with Donald Trump. "We are disheartened by recent events but the show will go on," the Miss Universe organization said in a statement Tuesday morning. "We are moving forward, full-steam ahead as planned for the next two weeks, culminating in the crowning of a new Miss USA on July 12." However, the show currently has no television broadcaster. Before NBC pulled out, Univision, the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the country, decided last week to...

    Just days before Univision announced it would host a Republican debate, one of its top executives likened a Republican candidate to alleged mass murderer Dylann Storm Roof. Alberto Ciurana, Univision’s president of programming and content, made a post on his official Instagram account last week that appeared to indicate that there were similarities between Trump and Roof, who last week killed nine people in a shooting at a church in Charleston, S.C. The since-deleted Instagram post received hundreds of likes from Ciurana’s 116,000 followers on the site. It also received backlash. “With all due respect, what happened last night is not a...

    After an extensive investigation, NBC News finally decided the fate of habitual liar Brian Williams, who has been on an extended suspension since February. In the end, they made a brilliant decision by removing him from the anchor chair at the “NBC Nightly News” and demoting him to MSNBC, their embarrassment of a cable news network. Williams will join other chronic liars, such as the Reverend Al Sharpton, on the cable news network that has turned into a ratings disaster. MSNBC has a pathetic number of viewers for a national news network, usually about 500,000 per night. This is only...

    Comedian Bill Maher said conservative media — including the Drudge Report, Fox News and The Daily Caller — may have a hand in inspiring Dylann Roof to shoot up a black church in Charleston, S.C. this week. Maher was discussing the massacre with a panel on his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” that included Daily Caller senior contributor Matt Lewis. “We can never know why someone snaps, but I bet you I know where he got his news,” Maher said, referring to Roof, who killed nine people in the attack on Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church.

    The weariness, the rage, the depressing conviction that black life is stuck in a murderous loop fueled by racism—these emotions resounded in black America after the deadly shootings at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Nine people who had gathered to pray in one of the main sanctuaries of black life—the church—were slain. This, following a string of black men killed after coming into contact with police officers in cities across America and racist actions on campuses. Even though African-Americans are long accustomed to dealing with difficulty where their race is concerned, the confluence of events...

    Formaldehyde is a simple and ubiquitous molecule, used in countless products and industrial processes. The compound is synthesized by virtually every life form, and does not accumulate in the environment. However, since formaldehyde (along with everything else) is a “chemical,” greedy fear entrepreneurs are more than willing to scare the public. In so doing, they not only extract millions of dollars in dubious donations, they routinely slander and libel dozens of perfectly fine products. Unfortunately, when industry attempts to fight back, the prevailing media narrative is nearly always rigged against it, based on the puerile notion that the fear entrepreneurs...

    How can Ted Cruz be "too conservative" for America when an independent watchdog named Barack Hussein Obama the "most liberal" politician in Washington during his tenure as Senator? Contrary to progressive propaganda, America wasn't founded on Marxist or Islamic principles. This fabled nation was forged upon the timeless premise that man's natural rights are derived from God rather than the vain benevolence of any leader or the criminally usurped power of statism. Liberty, opportunity, God, faith, capitalism, hard work, self-reliance, accountability, and duty are hardly meaningless taglines used to lather up a Right Wing electorate into a frothing display of...

    CNN and FOX News have stepped up their game. CNN has gone full infotainment under Jeff Zucker and is eating MSNBC’s lunch. Meanwhile MSNBC has the same cast of social justice warriors with occasional interruptions from idiots like Al Sharpton and Chris Matthews offering the same predigested pablum that MSNBC’s younger audience gets in mock form from the Daily Show.The collapse is hitting fast and hard. MSNBC’s demo ratings, the 25-54 adult audience, has fallen anywhere from 39% to 45% (I’ve seen three numbers quoted across Variety, Deadline and Mediaite, 39%, 40% and 45%). For Q1 2015, MSNBC’s weekday primetime...

    March 30, 2015 (NewsBusters.org) -- Media Research Center (MRC) and Family Research Council (FRC) are launching a joint national campaign to educate the public about a Disney ABC sitcom pilot based on the life of bigoted activist Dan Savage. MRC and FRC contacted Ben Sherwood, president of Disney/ABC Television Group, more than two weeks ago urging him to put a stop to this atrocity but received no response. [Read the full letter]A perusal of Dan Savage’s work reveals a career built on advocating violence — even murder — and spewing hatred against people of faith. Savage has spared no one with whom he disagrees from his vitriolic...
  • Once again the Liberal Media assert their power.

    As I watched "Good Morning America" today, I saw a segment where the media was bringing pressure to bear on the Indiana legislature and governor. George Stephanopolous was questioning governor Pence: George Stephanopolis:Final question, final yes-or-no question, Governor. Do you think it should be legal, in the state of Indiana, to discriminate against gays or lesbians? And this is how they characterize the debate. They portray one side (theirs) as heroic, and the other side (ours) as evil. Governor Pence was not prepared for this ambush. His response was scatter shot and muddled. Among the things he could have said...

    Myanmar's constitution guarantees religious freedom. But some radical Buddhists have been railing against Muslims – a tendency which has reached the lawmakers by now.Everything seems normal as children in red clothes play football on a dusty patch. However, this patch is the courtyard of a monastery and the young players with their rolled-up shirts and bare arms are Buddhist novices. Their teacher, U Nayaka, laughs at the notion that a monastery is supposed to be a place of meditation. "It is never quiet here, my students always make noise," said Phaung Daw Oo, director of the monastery school, who is...

    In January of 2014, award-winning investigative journalist for NBC News Lisa Meyers announced she was leaving the network after thirty-three years—supposedly to work on her golf game. However, an interview this week with the Des Moines Register gave credence to the speculation that she left because network news no longer wanted to upset the White House and other politicians. […] Meyers has made similar charges in the past: months before she left NBC, Newsbusters reported about a Meyers appearance where she called the press one of Obama’s most important constituencies. …

    Just a thought: is it possible that the New York Times and the other liberal media outlets are covering the Hillary email and Clinton Foundation scandals now to get them out of the way so they will be "old news" by 2016?

    In one of the dumbest articles ever to see the light of day, Mother Jones has declared that eating three meals a day is "racist." The piece, titled "Why You Should Stop Eating Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner," was written by Kiera Butler, a senior editor, and was published yesterday. How is eating food racist? Butler explains that white Europeans brought the tradition of eating three meals a day with them to the "New World." "When European settlers got to America, they also imported their meal habits," Butler writes, "a light meal—maybe cold mush and radishes—in the morning, a heavier, cooked...

    On Friday’s “Situation Room,” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer characterized the failure of a resolution to fund the Department of Homeland Security for three weeks as the Republicans “failing to break the deadlock over funding the Department of Homeland Security,” despite the fact that the majority of the votes against the resolution came from Democrats. “How will the Department of Homeland Security protect Americans from a terror threat, which is growing daily, if congress cannot find a way to pay those workers whose job is — supposed to keep all of us safe? Looks like Republicans are moments away from failing...

    Go Rudy. America’s mayor nailed it right on when he had the balls to say what’s really on the minds of most Americans who love our country the way it should be loved! And if the media loved our country, they’d tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the man in the White House that would be our king, if we let him. Twenty seven different names, in twenty two states, with twenty one social security numbers that won’t even pass E-verify; that’s Barack. Rudy revealed the fears of many Americans; fears our national media...

    MSNBC might like to replace "Lean Forward" with a new slogan: "Dissent Is Unpatriotic." On today's Morning Joe, discussing the Rudy flap, Mika Brzezinski said: "I question the patriotism of someone who questions the president's patriotism." Joe Scarborough retorted that for years on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann got away with saying much worse about W without criticism from Mika or others in the MSM. View the video here.
