    I would like to think this headline from Newsweek is simply being sarcastic, but I doubt this is the case: Who Reported on Hillary Clinton's Historic Chipotle Visit, and How? This headline was written by people who have no conception of what is and isn't historical. SNIP Hillary going to a Chipotle counter and saying, "I'll have a chicken bowl with a side of guacamole," is not historic. SNIP

    Cue the Hillary Clinton media lovefest.All you need to know about the next 18 months of media coverage in the Hillary vs. press match-up is summed up in this hilarious video. Reporters are running, not walking, to catch Clinton in her “Scooby van” as she kicked off her campaign in Iowa.To quote legendary MLB catcher Yogi Berra: “It’s like déjŕ vu all over again.” After living through the 2008 coronation of then-Senator Barack Obama, we know how this play is going to end. Barring any miracles, Clinton will cruise to the nomination. And from then on, most of the...

    Retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wants a job at the network that is home to Brian Williams, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews. Reid, the Nevada lawmaker who is planning to retire next year, told CNBC's John Harwood, "I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm not going to lobby. I'm not going to practice law. I'll keep busy. I may want one of your jobs here — to be an analyst on TV and say all these good things that you always say about me."

    [SNIP]...Republican candidates get grilled, sometimes impertinently, and pressed, sometimes brusquely. And it isn’t true that they’re only questioned in this way once they announce, Scott Walker has been treated like this also, and he has yet to announce. Republicans see this, and then they see that Mrs. Clinton isn’t grilled, is never forced to submit to anyone’s morning-show impertinence, is never the object of the snotty question or the sharp demand for information. She gets the glide. She waves at the crowds and the press and glides by. No one pushes. No one shouts the rude question or rolls out...

    Time to put the pedal to the metal. On a sunny Sunday afternoon, just hours after officially declaring her presidential bid, Hillary Clinton hopped into a black van for a 16-hour road trip from Chappaqua, New York to Iowa. Clinton is traveling with longtime aide Huma Abedin and spokesperson Nick Merrill. Secret service is with them and she is not likely behind the wheel herself. The trip will take her along I-80 through the swing states of Pennsylvania and Ohio before she arrives in Iowa. Americans love road trips. As Clinton prepares for her first public appearance as a presidential...

    I’ve spent much of my life observing and writing about media bias, so you’d think nothing could surprise me at this point. But the fawning, deferential coverage of Hillary Clinton really is amazing. Hillary Clinton went to Chipotle yesterday. ABC described this as an “adventure” as Patrick notes below. An. Adventure. No wonder she thinks she’s named after Sir Edmund Hillary, they’re both such bold risk takers, pushing the envelope. On Morning Joe earlier, Mark Halperin offered a somewhat more serious analysis of Indiana Clinton and the Raiders of the Ohio Chipotle: “Her problem is not to prove to people...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s complete inaccessibility — and the media’s desperate desire to cover her every move — finally came to a head Tuesday, when MSNBC cameras caught a desperate gaggle of reporters chasing down her van as she arrived at an event. Seriously, watch the video. It’s pathetic. MSNBC host Thomas Roberts seemed to enjoy giving a live commentary. “That guy in the orange pants is pretty quick. I’m looking at these people — wow! Orange pants, he’s really outnumbered now by all the people racing to the back.” At least one respected member of the national media...

    THE REPUBLICAN FRONT RUNNER TURNS 72. IS HE TOO OLD TO BE PRESIDENT? AND IS HE TOO OLD-FASHIONED A POLITICIAN TO LEAD HIS RADICALIZED PARTY? Bob Dole celebrated his 72nd birthday last Saturday, an occasion of more than passing significance. For it reminded the leaders of his party, the pundits searching for big issues and perhaps even a few real live voters of the thing Dole would most like them to ignore: if he were to win the presidency in 1996, he would be the oldest man ever inaugurated. Even if age doesn't matter, ideas do. At the very moment...

    In an interview with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul that aired on Sunday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd noted that he has a tendency to get prickly with reporters. “This has been men and women, by the way,” Todd noted. That clarity was not apparent this past week when Democrats and reporters alike advanced the slanderous narrative that Paul reserved his testiness exclusively for women. This, they added, was an unattractive trait that might be rooted in a lack of respect for the female gender. “He’s got to be careful here,” Todd told his colleague Andrea Mitchell. “This is...

The latest was reported Friday by the New York Post: Dozens of residents from Williams’ home town are demanding a tribute sign to their former favorite son be torn down. Thus far, Mayor Sue Skidmore is balking. The town’s welcome sign, which also honors a half-dozen other hometown notables (including Mark Twain), would be too expensive to replace, she says. …

That’s why the media told serial-lies around Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, and religious freedom laws. And that’s why on Friday, the media was caught on three occasions fabricating evidence to smear the GOP.

    Making Big Media the issue could, in fact, be precisely the means to truly energize conservative and by making Democrats the obvious toadies of Big Media, to deflate the left in 2016. The enemy of conservatism in America is the leftist establishment, the leftist-controlled institutions of news, education and entertainment. Take away these big, fat incestuously connected institutions and the left in America is a circus sideshow and nothing else. Democrat “leaders” like Obama, Hillary, Pelosi and Reid are slow witted, mean-spirited, and narrow-minded sock puppets filled by the chubby hands of the leftist establishment.

Paul, who said during his campaign launch on Tuesday he would like to see “any law that disproportionately incarcerates people of color is repealed”, responded awkwardly when asked which specific piece of legislation he would repeal. In a live broadcast via the smartphone app Periscope, Paul said he had “a host of bills” that would amend or repeal part of the statute. Midway through his...

If someone didn’t honor their parents or commit adultery, would you serve them?” This question was posed by CNN reporter Gary Tuchman to Georgia florist Melissa Jeffcoat, who had previously said she’d refuse to service a homosexual commitment ceremony. When she answered affirmatively and was pressed on why (supposedly) she’d serve adulterers and those dishonoring their parents but not homosexuals, she replied, “It’s just a different kind of sin to me. I just don’t believe in it.” Tuchman surely...

Big business is pure evil, secretly funding Islamic terrorism and sending its own private army to kill American soldiers who may embarrass BIG EVIL BUSINESS, which operates like the Klingon Empire except that the Klingons are more honorable and gentle. In "Odyssey," corporations also kill...

(Short version: don’t expect him to fall out of the upper ranks just because more people officially get into the race.) It’s true that Cruz saw a bump from his official announcement, but the renewed and increased media attention he’s been receiving has expanded his name recognition, and with it his potential donor pool. Liberals have predicted – in a...

They can recite tales with similar outlines: An agency spokesman — frequently a political appointee — rejects the reporter’s request for interviews, offers partial or nonresponsive replies, or delays responding at all until after the journalist’s deadline has passed. Interview requests that are granted are closely monitored, reporters say, with a press “minder” sitting in. Some agencies require reporters to pose their questions by e-mail, a tactic that enables officials to carefully craft and vet their replies. Tensions between reporters and...

Bash tried to smack Cruz around by comparing him to Obama (funny, she didn’t have a problem with the current president having no executive or much political experience when he ran for the White House in 2008), hoping it would silence and embarrass the senator from Texas.

So why does PolitiFact still have Mr. Obama’s promises kept at nearly twice those broken? I decided to take a look. The first thing I did was see what promises were considered broken. It’s a fairly hefty list, but some of the very largest are completely missing. The biggest, and most famous, broken promise is that “if you like...

Globally, 61 journalists were killed in the line of duty in 2014, bringing to more than 1,000 the number who have died since 1992,...

    It has been three months since Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's exercise equipment "accident" and he remains blind in his injured eye. So when will Reid sue the exercise equipment company or even mention the brand name? So far nothing solid on this from Reid and the mainstream media continues to remain on incurious mode. This was particularly noticebable last week when Reid announced that he won't be seeking re-relection. Speculation again heated up on talk radio and in the blogosphere about this "accident" but from the MSM.....the sounds of silence. Among those taking note of the strange circumstances of Reid's...

    There are widespread efforts to create what I call a false reality to engulf you when you’re exposed to most any forms of media. The idea is to give the impression there’s widespread support for or against an agenda–when there may not really be. Those behind the efforts to sway your opinion, sometimes using bullying tactics, are special interests that want to make debates seem over, science seem settled, and make you feel like your an outlier–when none of those things is actually the case.These interests increasingly use PR firms that create sophisticated campaigns to advance their narratives. This may include circulating their propaganda on Twitter...
  • Ted Cruz Signs Up For Obamacare Is Your Short-Sighted Media Fixation Of The Week

    As you may have heard, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) this week officially joined the 2016 GOP primary scrum (or, if you've a yen for parsing narrow legal definitions, leaped past that scrum), in a fancy to-do at Liberty University -- a fitting venue for Cruz to lay down the foundation of his pitch to the conservative base, in which he adopts the persona of Jesus H. Reagan. Or, if you prefer, Ronald H. Christ -- it's essentially the same concept, and I am not a picky man. But what Cruz did next was very puzzling: He signed up for Obamacare....

    Appearing on Fox News’ MediaBuzz on Sunday, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker demonstrated a complete 180 degree change of heart surrounding Senator Ted Cruz’ presidential prospects. At first, Parker argued that “he’s obviously not going to win the presidency” before insisting that when it comes to Cruz “the Washington media are really out of touch with real America.” Parker’s comments came during a panel discussing surrounding the media’s treatment of Ted Cruz in which liberal journalist Juan Williams insisted that Cruz received just as much criticism from conservatives as he does from the liberal media. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Parker went on to argue...

    If establishment pundits can’t deny a Republican’s intelligence, then they have to claim his intelligence is a problem. The other day, NPR’s Robert Siegel assembled his usual suspects from the New York Times, Washington Post and Brookings Institution to provide a “balanced” review of the week in politics, including the latest from Ted Cruz. These two short sentences provide a perfect example of the uphill climb Cruz and any Republican has ahead: DAVID BROOKS of the NY Times: “My problem with Cruz is that he’s very, very smart – he’s going to Wall Street these days and impressing people with...

    Dear journalists: May I have a public word with you, especially if you edit the Raleigh News and Observer? You probably take a dim view of unsolicited advice from a junior member of the guild, but I think I can save you some grief in the run-up to next year’s presidential election, with an assist from the first official candidate for the Republican nomination. That candidate would, of course, be Senator Ted Cruz. Many of the stories about him are written with the same “Get a load of this guy!” tone regardless of where they come from, but I thought...

    Scott Walker and Jeb Bush were bound to collide sooner or later. It turned out to be sooner. As the son of a Baptist minister, and the son of the 41st president of the United States, these two were destined to be the odd couple of the 2016 election. Walker is running against the establishment and the Washington elites. Bush embodies both. Walker will need at least $100 million to compete in the GOP primary, and more if he makes it to the general. Most of the Republican donors who write those kinds of checks are on Bush’s speed dial....

    State run media. When you first heard Rush Limbaugh coin that term, many probably believed he was at the very least guilty of a bit of hyperbole. Well, according to Jeryl Bier of the Weekly Standard, in the case of Politico it really does look like state run media due to payoffs by various federal agencies in the form of subscription fees.  Bier lays out in detail the payoffs, uh, I mean "subscription fees," the feds have paid to Politico over the years. Since 2011 nearly a million bucks paid by federal departments and agencies to Politico with nearly $432, 000...

    In a preview of the 2016 campaign, all five late night comics on Monday night mocked Ted Cruz, hitting the Republican as anti-immigrant, regressive and stupid. CBS host David Letterman didn't bother with a joke. Instead, he lectured, "Here's what I find interesting about Ted Cruz, he was born in Canada. His father fled to the United States from Cuba. Yet, Ted Cruz is against immigration. Isn't that odd?" He then sneered, "Ted Cruz could be president of the United States and if you thought the Secret Service was drinking before –" On TBS, Conan O'Brien hammered, "[Cruz] pledged to...

    On Monday evening, mainstream media reporters reportedly gave Hillary Clinton a standing ovation after she joked about her private email scandal and took no questions from the press–at an event honoring excellence in journalism. According to a National Journal report, Clinton took no questions after her 20-minute speech in Washington, D.C., which prompted the Washington Post‘s Dan Balz, who won this year’s Robin Toner award for excellence in political reporting, to reportedly make Clinton an offer: “I am happy to yield my time back to you if you want to take some questions.” Time reported that “Clinton received a standing...

    The Obama years will be forever known as the Dark Ages of US history, a time of political, cultural and economic deterioration. We have yet to see if they will lead to the fall of the American republic. In the Obama years, the lie became not only a campaign strategy or a means to enact damaging policies, but an institution of government; the Presidency itself, a lie of monstrous proportions guarded by the complicit and the willingly ignorant. In the Obama years, the Congress finally clearly demonstrated that although we have elections, there is no longer a government representing its...
