  • AP's Scott Bauer Effectively Admits That Media Didn't Vet Mary Burke

    M.D. Kittle at Watchdog.org's Wisconsin Reporter scooped everyone covering the Badger State Governor's race on Tuesday when he reported that Democratic candidate Mary Burke's resumé is not what her campaign's web site says it is. Burke's campaign bio claims that she "played a central role in Trek’s expansion as the Director of European Operations." Kittle found "multiple former Trek executives" who told him that, in Kittle's words, she "was fired by her own family following steep overseas financial losses and plummeting morale among Burke’s European sales staff." The real question to me is why it took until a week before...

    At first glance, it’s tempting to think that Mark Leibovitch is calling various Republican candidates stupid in his New York Times article, The Bumpkinification of the Midterm Elections. It would be an easy and understandable mistake to make, given that the introduction focuses almost entirely on Joni Ernst, with a generous sprinkling of Sarah Palin and other, almost exclusively GOP figures throughout the piece. But a closer reading reveals that even though the author might be thinking the candidates are toothless, drooling hicks, he’s really casting stones at those of you stupid enough to fall for their homespun, down on...

    CBS News declined to comment on the allegations below. In an astonishing media tour following her resignation from CBS News last spring, correspondent Sharyl Attkisson sat before interviewers ranging from radio host Chris Stigall to CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter and launched attacks on her newly former employer. Such attacks were rarely specific. Example: “With various stories, you do get the idea at some point that they want you to stop, especially if you start to dig down right into something very, very important,

    The Obama administration, despite the president's promises of transparency, is "more dangerous" to the media than any other White House in history, USA Today's Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page said this weekend. Page, speaking Saturday at a White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) seminar, also said the administration is "more restrictive," in reference to the its leak investigations and naming Fox News' James Rosen as a co-conspirator in a violation of the federal Espionage Act, writes The Washington Post's Eric Wemple in an opinion piece Tuesday. Veteran New York Times reporter Peter Baker, telling one of the stories, said that while...

    At some point, a compendium of condemnations against the Obama administration’s record of media transparency (actually, opacity) must be assembled. Notable quotations in this vein come from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said, “It is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering”; New York Times reporter James Risen, who said, “I think Obama hates the press”; and CBS News’s Bob Schieffer, who said, “This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.” USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page has added a sharper edge to...

Attkisson exposes outright political corruption, and the media circus surrounding the Obama Administration; the constant praise and fawning over the president, the political bent on stories, and the decision to air “softer” news versus hard-hitting investigative reports that could potentially show the Obama Administration in bad light.

    Some years ago now, when the conservative media group Newsmax put in a bid to buy the limping, failing Newsweek, I wrote a post arguing that trying to reinvent one of the newsweeklies as a (moderately) right-of-center publication was as good a bet as any. Here was the nub of my argument: If [Jon Meacham, the previous editor] had wanted to play to what seems like Newsweek’s business strength — its large audience outside the Acela corridor — he would have tried to tilt the magazine toward the center-right rather than the center-left, in the hopes of becoming the go-to...

[SNIP] In reality, what motivated him was blazingly obvious, but it was the one thing most Western government officials and all of the mainstream media have determined to ignore, and so the search was one for some other remotely plausible motive that could be sold to a public that is increasingly suspicious of what the government and media elites are telling them.

During the 11 p.m. hour, host Don Lemon attempted to throw to CNN reporter Sarah Sidner for an update, but the broadcast was overwhelmed by shouting and interruptions from protestors surrounding the crew. Sidner attempted to talk through the shouting, but her audio was clearly problematic. Lemon cut her off and ended the satellite broadcast due to technical issues.

    Greatest, latest parlor game: watching liberals pretzel-ize logic in arguing against a travel ban on people from Ebola-affected countries. We've noted a few examples here, here and here. But as wacky as those assertions were, they might all have to take a back seat to the absolutely absurd argument offered up by Chris Matthews on this evening's Hardball. Matthews suggested that a travel ban wouldn't work since Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who infected two people before dying of Ebola, lied to get into the US. Can't Chris see that his argument runs headlong against logic? That it is precisely...

    Fox News may be demolishing its more liberal cable news rivals in the ratings but to Democrats it’s still the bogeyman. That’s why President Obama took the opportunity to criticize the network during a speech defending his economic record at Northwestern University today. But in doing so, the president not only demonstrated the weakness of his position but also why he doesn’t understand Fox’s appeal. During his speech, the president said this about Fox and its audience: A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out their agenda. Hopefully also grounded in facts. There’s a reason fewer Republicans...

However, in one interaction Tuchman offered his own assurances to those schoolchildren they had no reason to worry. Partial transcript as...

    On Monday, Dr. David Agus injected the media's regular hype about climate change into CBS This Morning's coverage of the outbreak of Enterovirus D68 in the U.S. and the Ebola crisis in Africa. The morning show brought on Dr. Agus to discuss the polio-like virus that has afflicted children across the country. Near the end of the segment, anchor Charlie Rose wondered, "So we have Ebola virus in Africa, and we now have this virus [Enterovirus D68]. What's going on?" The CBS medical contributor admitted that science didn't have any answers at this point, but that didn't stop him from...

  • ‘Homeland’ is the most bigoted show on television (anything near the truth is "bigoted")

    A blonde, white Red Riding Hood lost in a forest of faceless Muslim wolves: This is how “Homeland’s” creators have chosen to represent their show as it begins its fourth season, which sees CIA officer Carrie Mathison stationed in Pakistan. It is also the perfect encapsulation of everything that’s wrong with this show. Since its first episode, “Homeland,” which returns Sunday, has churned out Islamophobic stereotypes as if its writers were getting paid by the cliché. Yet the show, created by “24” veterans Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa and former Israeli paratrooper Gideon Raff, continues to rack up awards, critical...

    CNN's media reporter shamed his colleagues this week for rushing to judgment before all of the facts were in about a brawl involving the Palin family. The "sketchy" details of the fight in which the Palin family reportedly came to the defense of their eldest son were first spread by an anti-Palin blogger who admitted she neither had the time nor wanted to track down the facts. No need to bother, of course, when the "story" is salacious and the anti-Palin mainstream press will more than participate in the feeding frenzy if they think it will make Palin look bad....

When the bill was sent to a CNN producer, he reportedly told Robert Zimmerman, “You and your brother are evil!” More from the GQ profile on the Zimmermans: The Zimmermans seized on their brief stint of subsidized...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin knows how it feels to be targeted by the mainstream media and reload in the face of it. She told social conservatives at Friday's Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. that that is why she has always had their backs as fiercely as they have had hers. "You're the Americans that the media loves to hate," Palin said, calling the room "the most joyful room in Washington" of happy warriors. "I'm speaking to the most slandered group in America today. Join me in telling the lamestream media that we wear your scorn with pride." Palin,...
