    ... Shot At And Pelted With Rocks It sucks to be caught up in a mess your news station is partly responsible for, huh? News anchors found themselves uncomfortably close to the action during live broadcasts of rioting in Ferguson, Missouri last night, as a CNN reporter was filmed being struck on the head with a rock, two of her colleagues choked on tear gas, and an MSNBC anchor was forced off air by gunfire. While reporting on the angry crowds outside a burning car dealership on Florrissant Avenue, CNN’s Sara Sidner managed to keep composed despite being struck by...

    This past week-end on Meet the Press, former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani was insulted and smeared by fellow panelist and MSNBC host Michale  Eric Dyson. Dyson went so far as to accuse Guiliani of having a mentality akin to white supremacists. This is all the left has when confronted with the truth, which is exactly what Guiliani provided as he cited crime stats. But Dyson would have none of it. (I wrote about the exchange, here.) Guiliani has continued to try to place facts between the ears of anyone out there who appears allergic to them when he was...

    Ann Coulter: Would It Kill You To Hire More Black Cops? (Yes) Ann Coulter August 27, 2014 As the story of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown begins to look less clear-cut than we were led to believe by Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, the “voices of oppression” on MSNBC now say the real issue is that there aren’t enough blacks on the Ferguson police force. As Brown may or may not have said seconds before his death: I give up. If the Ferguson police are forced to hire more minorities and women for the sake of...

If Darren Wilson is not indicted in this case for the killing of Mike Brown, that says that the quality and the value of black...

MADDOW: The first thing the President announced tonight in his three part plan was yet further resources to the border, yet more resources in terms of stopping people from crossing in the first place, catching them when they do, and sending them back. [Republican operative Steve Schmidt] said no Republican in the country believes that is true. That’s obviously a fake assertion. What’s behind the refusal...

    Are you a Democrat who can provide legal justification for President Obama issuing work documents to illegal aliens in his proposed executive order? If so then you need to contact Lawrence O'Donnell, host of MSNBC's The Last Word. O'Donnell has claimed that he spent days trying to track down such a Democrat but was unable to find any who could provide such justification. Among those Democrats unable to provide a constitutional basis for that part of the executive order was Representative Peter Welch of Vermont who presented the face of befuddlement when asked that question by O'Donnell.

    This might sound strange to regular NewsBusters readers, but what Chris Matthews said tonight makes sense. His critique of President Obama's ISIS strategy was simple . . . and devastating. Yes, we can bomb from the air. But since President Obama has ruled out American boots on the ground, we'll have to rely on foreign partners on to hold territory. And there's no way we can rely on the dismantled likes of the Free Syrian Army or other non-existent forces. And so, admitted Matthews, he's a "skeptic" about the potential for success of President Obama's plan. View the video here.

Elections, consequences. Democrats, do you guys have a catch-up plan for the states here or what? Because the trend here is obliterating. Earlier, Maddow erroneously put the measly number of state legislatures run by Democrats at eight – “Oregon, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware” when it’s really nine as Maryland’s legislatures remains controlled by Democrats (but will have a Republican Governor...

So when the Democrats went down in flames three days ago, guess who President Obama met with the next...

It's interesting that Washington State actually has two gun measures that were on the ballot in the upcoming election.” And, “We can't really have a conversation about school shootings without talking about the country's gun laws” during an interview with law enforcement analyst Jim Cavanaugh.
  • Did Chris Matthews Just Make the Most Illogical Argument Yet Against Ebola Travel Ban?

    10/20/2014 5:12:16 PM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 17 replies
    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...

  • O’Reilly Rips ‘Pathetic Ideological Loons’ at MSNBC for Ebola ‘Racism’ Attacks

    Bill O’Reilly spent a significant part of his first segment tonight decrying the “racism” accusations being thrown by some MSNBC commentators amidst nationwide Ebola panic. O’Reilly did not directly call out MSNBC in his Talking Points Memo, but it was very clearly aimed at them, since he had teased the segment with a clip of Alex Wagner saying some Republican comments on Ebola, including calling for a travel ban is “not even thinly-veiled racism.” And that wasn’t the first time someone on MSNBC had invoked racism in talking about a travel ban; a guest on Melissa Harris-Perry‘s show did so...
  • 'Conservative' Abby Huntsman Enthusiastically Opposes Ebola Travel Ban

    The web page for MSNBC's The Cycle has the chutzpah to describe co-host Abby Huntsman as a "conservative." Whatever happened to truth in advertising? On today's episode, Huntsman again demonstrated why the conservative tag doesn't fit. As a guest offered up a laughably lame analogy in arguing against a travel ban on people from Ebola-affected countries, Huntsman was quick to weigh in with an approving comment. View the video here.
  • Pat Buchanan Says Gaza is an "Israeli Concentration Camp" - Video 1/8/09

    Here is video of conservative pundit Pat Buchanan on MSNBC yesterday making comments about Israel that are just amazing. Buchanan likens Israel's Ground Offensive in Gaza to the Nazi "blitzkrieg," actually using the word in describing it. He also went a step further and says that Gaza is an "Israeli concentration camp," where "cruelty" by Israel is taking place. Let's step back for a moment. I have always liked Pat Buchanan's analysis when he is talking about inside the Beltway political matters. He is a very good analyst on those things. But he has real blinders when it comes to...
  • Wendy Davis is falling apart

    Mistakes happen on the campaign trail. Any politician in the national spotlight is bound to make one or two. The mark of a truly skilled politician, however, is one who can take their lumps, adapt, move on, and rebound from that error. Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is not a skilled politician. Davis’s much maligned “wheelchair ad,” in which she criticizes Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott’s position on tort reform while unsubtly drawing the audience’s attention to his disability, was a mistake. It drew criticism from both the right and the left, and a competent campaign would have pulled...

    Chris Christie might have millions of admirers across the country, people who love the Jersey governor's blunt style. But among the Republican media and political elites who populate Morning Joe, Christie's a no-hoper. That's what Joe Scarborough divulged on today's Morning Joe. Said Scarborough: "off the air in Republican circles . . . nobody thinks Christie can win." View the video here.

    It looks like it might be time to start playing Frank Sinatra's Gone With The Wind for Ronan Farrow. Mediate reports that Ronan Farrow might soon be Gone With The Wind because MSNBC might be cancelling  Ronan Farrow next month due to lousy ratings. This contrasts sharply with the incredible media hype that greeted the announcment that Farrow would be hosting an MSNBC show last February. First let us look at the MSM gushing from the New York Times followed by the grim reality about Farrow's possible cancellation next month due to few people watching his show:

    A new ad by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) features NBC "Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd saying Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes "disqualified herself" by refusing to say in a recent interview if she voted for President Barack Obama. The stumble last week led to pushback for Grimes, who is polling neck and neck with the Senate Republican leader. The McConnell campaign said on Monday that the ad, called "Disqualified," will air on TV statewide. It can be watched below.
