  • MSNBC Wouldn’t Be This Calm If Tea Party Protesters Threw Rocks at Their Hosts

    The Washington Free Beacon's Editor's Blog ^ | August 20, 2014 | Larry O'Connor
    After witnessing the spectacle of MSNBC host Chris Hayes getting pelted with rocks by an angry mob in Ferguson, Mo., Monday night, I was struck by a feeling of anger and frustration. Not at the rioters. Rioters throw rocks. That’s what they do. My anger was at the despicable display of “tolerance” and “understanding” displayed by Hayes, as he lowered his expectations for civil behavior to accommodate his liberal need to be accepted by the mob. Chris Hayes and his MSNBC colleagues Rachel Maddow, Laurence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, and Al Sharpton, have spent hundreds of hours of air...

    In a tense, middle-of-the night press conference early Tuesday morning, Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson lectured members of the media about safety and implored them to assist law enforcement in calming tensions in the city. After reporting that two individuals had been shot and several police officers injured during another night of protests in response to last week’s shooting of Michael Brown, Johnson showed members of the media items that law enforcement officials had confiscated during the previous night’s protests including a Molotov cocktail, fireworks that had been thrown into a crowd, and two guns. Johnson said the guns...

    The low cost of communication over the Internet has led to “a dangerous proliferation of voices” according to President Obama. “It used to be that everyone got their view of the news from major media outlets,” Obama recounted. “There was more unanimity of message. This helped bring the country together.” “Now, though, any nobody with a little free time can get a website and pontificate for all the world to see,” the President complained. “We have no way to control what is said and we lack the time and energy to refute every erroneous idea or contention that is made.”...

    After speaking to an eyewitness of the Michael Brown shooting on CNN last night, Don Lemon used his regular appearance on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to issue a statement he said he wanted everyone to hear, but “especially white folks.” “It has been almost a week since unarmed teenager Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, and still there no answers,” Lemon began. He tried to make that point that racial attitudes in Ferguson, Missouri and elsewhere in this country helped provide the environment that led to Brown’s death. “We...

    He plays a father in World’s Greatest Dad, a 2009 indie written and directed by fellow comedian Bobcat Goldthwait that may be the Williams role that I love best of all. It’s also one that is, for many reasons, almost unbearably sad to revisit now, not the least because it deals with themes of suicide, but also because its emotional epiphany is so hard-fought and so uncompromised, directly dealing with how people mourn and how we sanctify the dead. Williams could go big (take Mrs. Doubtfire) and he could do weird (see his turn in Robert Altman’s live-action Popeye), but...

Some funny skits; some recounting of unpleasant memories of his family and early years before joining the marines at age 17, and his struggles with bipolar-ism. Obviously this is not for everyone. But if you enjoyed his comedy and every wondered what made him tick, I think you will find watching worthwhile (about 30 mins)

    The Root ^ | August 11, 2014 | Yesha Callahan
    The hashtag demonstrates that the narrative the media continues to portray regarding black people isn’t always truthful. The vicious slaying of Mike Brown by Ferguson, Mo., police has once again shown that the narrative the media paints surrounding black people in America more often than not includes depicting us as violent thugs with gang and drug affiliations. It’s safe to say that Brown has become a victim of what I like to refer to as the “Trayvon Martin effect” in the media. Trayvon, who was killed by George Zimmerman, was depicted as a gold-grill-wearing, weed-smoking teenager in the photos used...

    According to speculation by the Daily Mail on Friday, Nicolle Wallace, a liberal Republican who worked on John McCain's 2008 campaign and famously feuded with Sarah Palin, has been selected to fill the "conservative" seat on ABC's The View. The rumor comes a day after the producer of the left-wing Rachel Maddow Show was hired to run the ABC chat show. Daily Mail writer Topper Toussaint claimed, "Commentator S.E. Cupp was also considered, but clashed with Rosie [O'Donnell]." He added, "'Rosie told her that her approach was just like Elisabeth Hasselbeck, which did not sit well,' according to the show...

She’ll, naturally, “cut through the sound bytes” and “through the media’s politically correct filter.” But she may also do something else for media in the process, which is test the hypothesis that there may be a business in getting people to pay $100 a year to watch a niche streaming tv channel.

Matthews said, "His answer to me was yes -- I'm going to issue some kind of system whereby people get relief from deportation or whatever it is. The government of the United States is going to in effect give work permits to people in this country illegally."(continued)

Aaron McGruder moves his satire of contemporary African-American life from comic strips and animation to live actors with “Black Jesus,” his new series for Adult Swim, beginning Thursday night. It’s a looser, baggier, less pointed show than “The Boondocks,” his sometimes-brilliant cartoon that has occasionally popped up on Adult Swim over the last nine years. And it has a comfortable, which is to say familiar, feel, recalling comedies from “Chappelle’s Show” all the way back to “Sanford and Son.”But...

    Sarah Palin’s new eponymous channel already has some competition from an online video platform that’s taking a swipe at the Republican firecracker, and devoting its entire lineup to all things Palin. The one-time GOP vice presidential candidate announced last month the creation of her subscriber-based news site, SarahPalinChannel.com. Now, Pluto.TV is launching its own “#SarahFailin” channel, which it says features a “tongue-in-cheek mashup” of Palin’s “most (in)famous broadcast T.V. interviews and parodies of the ‘Going Rogue’ author.” The online video channel, which curates content from across the internet as well as traditional television shows, launched this week.

The documents, mostly email exchanges between Lai's top aide Mark Simon and others, were sent to major news outlets yesterday by the same person who last month leaked information about Lai's donations to Hong Kong politicians. The documents suggest Lai had regular contacts with US politicians. In one case, Simon acted as a go-between to set up a meeting between former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and a group of...

    There are plenty of concerning things about the Browns’ lives on Sister Wives that the average audience member wouldn’t be accustomed to — for example, just how do they afford four McMansions in Nevada? Perhaps the most unfamiliar thing about the Browns’ unusual lifestyle choice, however, is just how many children they have. Like the Duggars before them, the Browns are working in the high teens of offspring (17, to be exact), but unlike the Duggars, the Brown children have… mother-aunts? And if you’re at all curious about their parents’ polygamist lifestyle, then certainly you’ve wondered: Will their 17...

And during a debate with progressive radio host Mike Papantonio, Schultz doubled down. “I get a little bit nervous when I even hear...

    Critics 'should neither be allowed nor enabled' to speak ill of Hillary. Political journalists are going to love the Hillary Clinton presidency. Judging by the way Team Clinton has responded to a series of books that are critical of the elderly homeowner and her philandering husband, it will be a real treat to cover them in the White House (again). According to Politico, for example, public relations representatives for the Clinton family have issued a joint statement condemning the recent publication of “trashy” books by Ed Klein, Daniel Halper, and Ronald Kessler, all of which reflect less than favorably...

The group showed up to hand out ice cream even though it was 58 degrees. Weir retweeted the link, with his own comment:...

    Jesse Ventura, Minnesota’s former governor, won his lawsuit against the late Navy SEAL and American Sniper author Chris Kyle on Tuesday. He claimed he was defamed in that book and, while a jury agreed, the vainglorious former wrestler-turned-politician-turned-conspiracy-buff has not exactly comported himself in a fashion that elicits much sympathy. After having been awarded nearly $2 million to be paid by the late serviceman’s widow, one might assume that Ventura would simply slip away and enjoy his victory. It seems, however, Ventura’s narcissism prevented him from taking the tasteful approach here. In an appearance on CBS News’ This Morning on...

Looking back, shouldn’t we have seen this Oprahesque turn coming all along? Palin, a communications major, always made for great TV.

As she vacillates between the Fox News stints that keep her political clout alive and the reality television gigs that seem like a more natural fit for her talents, I always wonder whether this is the moment that she will commit to a single path. The debut of the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based multimedia site that Palin and her team launched yesterday, is a disappointing combination of these muddled...

Since last season, the Browns struck down a major piece of state legislation that may pave the way for the legalization of polygamy under the guise of “religious freedom.” In a nod to anti-gay marriage advocates who warned the legalization of same-sex marriage would lead to other kinds of sexual freedoms, such as polygamy, the ruling is deemed a watershed moment for the rights of polygamist families— of which there is estimated to be...

The most revealing thing about this clip is how little his argument depends on the particular hardships being suffered by kids in Central America. They face gangs, drugs, and violence if they’re sent back, he allows, but there’s no sense that this is some unique crisis requiring a more forgiving policy than might otherwise be advisable. He’s making a straight-up argument, essentially, that if a kid makes it across the border,...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) HBO supernatural drama takes aim at conservatives in bloody takedown. HBO's “True Blood” took another stab at conservatives on Sunday's episode when it left a bloody mess of an event held in Ted Cruz's honor. It was exactly what the doctor ordered for an ailing Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), who has been infected with the dangerous virus that's killing vampires. He was all ready to meet the true death until his progeny Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) informed him that Sarah Newlin, part of the group manufacturing the virus, was still alive and on the run. That was enough for...

    On Sunday John Kerry forgot the number one rule of being miked for an interview; the microphone is always on. The Secretary of State was miked and on camera waiting for an interview with Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace when he spoke to an aide about an Israeli operation resulting in the deaths of 14 IDF solders. Kerry’s reaction was a mocking: "It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.We’ve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 19, 2014 | Tony Lee
    On his Friday radio show, Glenn Beck suggested those who do not want to pass out soccer balls and teddy bears to illegal immigrant children at detention centers with him are "pusses." He also said Americans should not "focus" on the gangsters, killers, and rapists who are coming across the border with the illegal immigrant children two days after Breitbart Texas reported that an illegal immigrant whom the federal government released in June with a "notice to appear" was arrested for murder. While discussing his plans to go to McAllen, Texas on Saturday with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep....
  • Joy Behar Slams Sarah Palin: You Should Be ‘Turning Letters on a Game Show’

    Extra ^ | July 18, 2014
    “Extra” was with Joy Behar at a special preview of “Lipshtick” at the Venetian Las Vegas on Thursday, where the comic commented on rumors that Sarah Palin might be joining “The View.” Behar quipped, “Shouldn’t Sarah Palin be turning letters over on some game show at this point? Why is she even relevant? She and Dick Cheney need to just sort of say bye-bye and disappear, so I don’t really see her on any show, frankly… I wouldn’t watch.” Joy also doesn’t think having a male presence on the panel is a good idea. “We tried that in the past...

    MSNBC’s The Cycle brought up Staff Sgt. Michael Boyd to talk with them exclusively about being an eyewitness to the crisis today involving the downed Malaysian Airlines plane reportedly shot down by a ground-to-air missile. There’s just one problem: it wasn’t Staff Sgt. Michael Boyd, it was someone pulling yet another classic cable news Howard Stern prank.Krystal Ball asked what he saw. “Boyd” said, “Well, I was looking out the window and I saw a projectile flying through the sky, and it would appear that the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass.”RELATED: Prankster...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Conservative radio host Glenn Beck directly addressed the parents of children in Latin America on his show on Tuesday, begging them in a monologue with Spanish captions not to send their children to the United States. “I come to you as a dad … keep your family together,” Beck said on his program on Blaze TV. “Please would you consider doing the hard thing as well would you resist the temptation to flee or break up your family, please don’t hand your child off to a smuggler in the middle of the night.” While they may have been told America...

    NewsBusters ^ | July 14, 2014 | Tom Blumer
    In the early 1970s, the press obsessed about President Nixon's alleged "isolation," especially as the Watergate scandal, which in an objective lookback has to be seen as relative child's play compared to what we're seeing now, unfolded. Proof that Nixon's "isolation" had been a constant media theme in previous months is found in an NBC Nightly News report on May 10, 1973, when a White House staff reorganization was characterized by reporter Richard Valeriani as "Nixon moving to end President('s) isolation." On Fox News's "The Five" on Friday, Democrat Bob Beckel relayed what he said was an anonymous comment by...
  • 10 Things I Learned From Eavesdropping on Conservatives Talking About ‘America’ At the Movie Theater

    07/14/2014 11:02:05 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 103 replies
    America: Imagine the World Without Her is the newest propaganda hit piece from confessed criminal and Right-wing operative Dinesh D’Souza. During my weekly visit to the movies, I saw Deliver Us From Evil. It was a movie with great potential (the connection to PTSD and the “demons” that our veterans carry home with them from war could have been more thoroughly developed) that needed a thorough rewrite and editing. I am a sucker for movies about the supernatural and occult. Therefore, I felt obligated to see Deliver Us From Evil. Dinesh D’Souza’s new “documentary” “America” was also playing at the...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)MSNBC fill-in host and Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson is no fan of calling for a president’s ouster . . . unless it’s George W. Bush. Although he personally signed his name onto a group looking to “create a political situation where Bush himself is driven from office,” Dyson labeled Sarah Palin’s comments about impeaching President Obama as “treasonous accusations.” “The president is acutely aware of the dire situation facing the children and their families crossing into the United States, as evidenced by his tireless effort to help them,” he said on Wednesday’s show in defense of President Obama....

    Morning Joe cohost Joe Scarborough agreed Thursday morning with a Wall Street Journal editorial calling the recent outbreak of impeachment talk, led by Sarah Palin, delusional, and the panel argued that it really said something when the WSJ ed board, not the most liberal cabal that ever gathered, found the GOP’s tactics too extreme. “I must say for the Wall Street Journal editorial board to talk about extremism is a little much,” MJ regular Cokie Roberts said. “They have certainly been guilty of that themselves, to put it mildly.” (Ahem.) “Or, maybe it’s a sign things have gotten so extreme...
