Our recurring joke - that is itself a ceaselessly recurring joke - is when we mention the “Media-Left,” we always follow it with “please pardon the redundancy.” The Media-Left merger is now seamless. I could hand you a New York Times article and a Daily Kos article - and you would be hard pressed to determine which is which (aside from the latter’s propensity for profanity).
As Rush Limbaugh repeatedly points out - the Media are the horse, the Left merely the cart the Media drags along behind. And the Democrat Party is the inert, inept product in the cart - dragged along by both.
NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on the C-SPAN interview program Washington Journal on Sunday morning to discuss the "war" between the media and the Trump administration. Trump's waging a war? Graham said "Well, yes, he is, in a way, and for many people, for many conservatives who didn’t necessarily back him in the primaries, it was the best part of Trump. Because we have an arrogant liberal media that needs to be taken down a peg." At the end of the half hour, Graham dared the news media to refute the notion they were an "opposition party" to Republicans by showing the public how they voted in November.
If Ashley Judd’s R-rated rant comparing President Donald Trump’s team to the Nazis wasn’t insane enough, loony Madonna admitted to wanting to kill the newly inaugurated president of United States. “Yes, I am angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she proclaimed to the hundreds of thousands of march attendees in Washington, DC on Saturday. But yet, she started her address declaring, “Welcome to the revolution of love!”
Of all the far-left, wacky statements made at Saturday’s Women’s March, actress Ashley Judd may take the top honor (or DisHonor) for an R-rated tangent against “Electoral College-sanctioned hate speech” by President Trump and his team of “Nazis” capturing “little girls like Pokemon” and Ivanka Trump as his “favorite sex symbol.”
Demonstrating the power of fake news to influence uninformed people, just-elected Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire brought up a thoroughly discredited Washington Post story at the Senate confirmation hearing for Former General John Kelly. President-Elect Donald Trump has nominated Kelly to be the nation's next head of the Department of Homeland Security. Hassan brought up the Post's story on a late-December "infrastructure" attack by "a hacking group connected with the Russian government" on a Vermont utility as if it was an established fact — which, of course, it's not.
The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.
According to the Media Research Center’s Tim Graham, biased journalists are treating Donald Trump as “some sort of epic threat to the country and has to be stopped.” The MRC’s director of media analysis appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal on Tuesday to explain how journalists are leaping on Trump’s latest scandal and ignoring Hillary Clinton’s controversies.
Throwing Debbie Wasserman Schultz under the bus apparently wasn't enough to calm the atmosphere at the opening of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Today, it became clear that like many others, Bernie's fans are not persuaded by the establishment press's predictable pro-Hillary posturing about how the convention will be "magic," with "perfect chemistry" between Hillary Clinton and her VP pick Tim Kaine, the "most qualfied ticket in history."
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi instructed them to follow the lead of late night comedians (in the mold of The Daily Show or The Nightly Show) to take down Donald Trump and the Republicans to the point that she offered to “encourage” them to broadcast such exposes as the general election intensifies.
There are fewer more sacred cows in entertainment than rock singer and indefatigable do-gooder Bono, but over the weekend he sustained a well-deserved skewering courtesy of Bill Maher.
On his HBO show Friday night, Maher cited testimony from the U2 singer before a congressional panel on the subject of "Combating Violent Extremism," more accurately known as Islamic fanaticism.
Concerning the idea of entertaining a potential Supreme Court nominee before the November presidential election is decided, Allahpundit at Hot Air has summarized the left's current utterly hypocritical situation in a succinct way we'll never see in the establishment press: "The current president, current vice president, current Senate minority leader, and incoming Senate minority leader have all gone on record in the past in favor of obstructing a Supreme Court nominee."
The fact that we know where current Vice President Joe Biden stood on the matter in 1992 is due to digging by an enterprising individual poster at C-SPAN. It's reasonable to contend that this person was able to learn something many establishment press veterans already knew, but refused to tell us — and hoped we'd never learn.
During an interview with host Brian Lamb Saturday evening on the C-SPAN cable TV channel, Martin Baron – who has been the executive editor of the Washington Post newspaper since January of 2013 – stated what many liberals and Democrats are afraid to admit: Rush Limbaugh should now be considered part of the “mainstream media.”
His reason for this claim during that edition of the Q&A program? Because Limbaugh is “the most successful radio talk show host in the country. That would make him mainstream media.”
