  • Clinton campaign ropes off reporters at New Hampshire parade

    Campaign aides for Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton on Saturday roped off reporters from the candidate as she walked and talked with potential voters during a July Fourth parade in New Hampshire, sparking frustration from the press corps and outrage from the state Republican Party. “Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate her obvious contempt and disdain for the Granite State’s style of grassroots campaigning,” New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn said in a statement. “The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke and insults the traditions of our first-in-the-nation primary.” Reporters were...

    Media Matters is a 501(c)(3), and the lawful restrictions on its political activities are listed above. I’m sure a check of Carusone’s IP addresses will confirm that he is using Media Matters’computers while on his paid on-the-clock employee time, and a search of other records will prove he is also using Media Matters’ phones and other resources to run the #DumpTrump campaign, which is illegal, as you can read here at the IRS website. However, if Trump hasn’t yet formally filed, the restriction on “any statements against candidates” may not apply. But if they do, Trump should sue. Excerpted from...

    The Examiner ^ | July 2, 2015 | Sylvia Van Peebles, San Diego Politics
    Every once in a while there comes along a candidate who is head and shoulders above the rest. Such a person is Senator Ted Cruz. He is that rare candidate who stands his ground, does not intimidate, never loses his cool and is, above all, always a gentlemen. Everyone who is anyone in the liberal media has been having interviews with Cruz. Not because they are so enamored of the Senator, but more because they are on a mission-a mission to trip him up, catch him off-guard, back him into a wall. They haven't been successful yet. Cruz is fully...

The 35 men and 14 women account for just 1.7 per cent of the firm's US operation, which is 93.8 per cent white or Asian. It represents a stark lack of progress since last year, when senior executives promised to boost their number of African American staff from 2 per cent.

    ~~Well-intended forgiveness has been seized on by the media and those in power as an excuse to ignore white supremacy~~ Unfortunately, forgiveness, that element of moral sanctity which facilitates assuaging of grief, has morphed into a barrier obstructing the path to justice and accountability in the United States — a place weakened by the ubiquitousness and insidiousness of racism. Although it’s tough to direct a critical lens at the concept of forgiveness when the situation involves grieving family members tearfully addressing an expressionless, depraved killer who isn’t even asking for it, for posterity’s sake this must be done.

    American journalists are partly to blame for the recent racist shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, because they continue to perpetuate the old southern racist myth that black Americans are a separate “race” from white Americans. Journalists seem to support the “one drop rule” or “part black all black”. For example, they continue to refer to Asian ancestry golfer Tiger Woods as “African American” even though his mother has Asian and Dutch ancestry and his father has Asian, European and North American ancestry as well as African ancestry. These racist journalists even refer to a child who has a black parent...

    NBC News is reporting that white people are the "biggest terror threat in the U.S." citing a study. Oddly, despite the headline, "White Americans Are Biggest Terror Threat in U.S.: Study," in the text of their quick article, NBC, does not actually say that white people are the biggest terror threat. Instead, NBC's article reads, "The New America Foundation found that twice as many people have died in attacks by right-wing groups in America than by Muslim extremists since 9/11." ...Besides the obvious problems with NBC's clickbait headline, there other tremendous problems with the "study."

    I mean American women are about to realize American men were the best they ever had it. As I say in the book, even continental Europeans can’t compete. In de Tocqueville, writing about America, he commented on how women are treated with such respect and honor, and no crime is visited with greater severity of sanction then rape in this new country of America — contrasting America’s treatment of rape so severely unfavorable with that in France. Meanwhile, I mean part of the reason I concentrated on it is they’re just kind of arresting, keep you up all night stories...

    It seems a Boston station is testing the viewers appetite for the separation between advertising and journalism. The Boston Globe reports CBS owned WSBK recently started running an interview segment called A Few Good Minutes produced by a local marketing firm and the CBS owned MyNetworkTV station. The first segment aired at the tail end of WSBK’s 10:000 p.m. newscast Thursday night. You can watch the video down below.
  • Bob Schieffer Says ‘Maybe’ Press Wasn’t Skeptical Enough Regarding Obama in ’08

    Ya don’t say. He's retiring, so it's safe to speak ill of the Media Messiah. CBS’ Bob Schieffer says that perhaps reporters in the media “were not skeptical enough” of President Barack Obama as a presidential candidate in 2008, telling Fox News’ Howard Kurtz that the whole political world was struck by the sudden rise of the senator from Illinois. This isn’t some revelation that Schieffer just had. It’s certainly been kicking around in the heads of veteran media types since early ’09 when it became rather apparent that Barack Obama was more of a bumbler than the suave,...

    Live anthrax samples were shipped to three laboratories in Canada by a U.S. military lab, USA Today reported on Monday, following disclosures last week that samples of the bacteria were mistakenly sent to 11 U.S. states and two other countries. The newspaper cited two Defense Department officials as saying the samples sent to Canada came from the Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, where the other samples appear to trace back to as well. It is one of the U.S. military labs responsible for inactivation and shipping of biological material.

    Washington (CNN)—Dan Pfeiffer, a long-time top aide to President Barack Obama, is joining CNN as a contributor, network president Jeff Zucker announced Monday. The 39-year-old Pfeiffer is a Wilmington, Delaware, native and a graduate of Georgetown University. His first presidential campaign role came in a communications post for then-Vice President Al Gore's unsuccessful 2000 campaign. He then worked for the Democratic Governors Association and later Sens. Tim Johnson, Tom Daschle and then Evan Bayh's brief 2008 presidential campaign.
  • No Time for Hillary Scandals -- Every Reporter Everywhere Is Covering the Dennis Hastert Indictment

    Following a Chicago grand jury’s decision to indict former House speaker Dennis Hastert on charges that he violated federal banking laws by paying $3.5 million to an unnamed person to cover up “past misconduct,” rumors have abounded about what exactly that misconduct might be. The Washington Post reports now that Hastert “was trying to cover up decades-old allegations that he sexually molested a male victim to whom he recently paid hush money in violation of federal banking laws, according to a federal law enforcement official briefed on the case.” The misconduct, according to the unnamed source, dates from Hastert’s days...

    The economic recovery is really coming along great. For the third time since the expansion began in June 2009, the U.S. economy suffered a setback. Don’t call it a setback. It’s a strategic retreat. Those ‘optimistic’ estimates keep being revised. Such declines in GDP are rare in economic expansions, pointing to the fragile nature of the current rebound. The economy hasn’t contracted in three different quarters during good times since the 1950s. It’s the fault of the GOP. Also the weather. That’s the weakest reading since frigid winter temperatures derailed growth at the start of 2014. We can’t have an...

    Let’s say, just for kicks, you murdered your husband (or wife). Your neighbors have been suspicious ever since your nightly arguments suddenly stopped, right around the time you put something large in your trunk and drove off in the middle of the night. Now they see you driving his car and putting his suits and golf clubs up for sale on eBay. The police find your explanations implausible and contradictory, and then you tell the cops to direct all future questions to your lawyer. The good news is that you have fans. Some neighbors think you’re the cat’s pajamas. They...
