The podcast industry is trying to get in on Netflix’s game, and by that we mean, yes, they’re trying to set up a premium streaming site, but mostly that they’re attempting to produce content from a bunch of progressive propagandists. The flagship podcast streaming site Luminary has just announced its opening lineup and it’s chock full of all the liberal takes we’ve come to know and loathe. Can’t get enough of allegedly funnyman Trevor Noah? He’s on Luminary. As is feminist Lena Dunham.
New York Times national reporter Jackie Calmes spent a semester at the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University studying "conservative media," and this week issued an exhaustive 16,000-word report with the oh-so-objective title, "'They Don't Give a Damn about Governing' -- Conservative Media’s Influence on the Republican Party," blaming the "far right" for killing the moderate, pragmatic GOP, while dismissing the very idea of a liberal mainstream media.
The cover of Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine preaches the gay gospel again. Over an illustration of one groom helping another groom to the top of a wedding cake is the headline “The Gay Moment: How we got to a new American reality.”
Post editor Erica Johnston profiled gay activists Michelangelo Signorile and Human Rights Campaign boss Chad Griffin. One unleashed hate on the radio. The other's been profiled at least three times in the Post since 2012.
Leftist radio host Mike Malloy is aghast at the notion of a "Gun Appreciation Day" to be celebrated by 2nd Amendment supporters on January 19 this year. On his January 14 radio program, Malloy attacked the "right wingers who want to see blood in the streets, the Hannitys, the Limbaughs, they want the killing to start. Glenn Beck would like nothing more!"
A few minutes later, Malloy attacked the "crazy bastards" behind Gun Appreciation Day. "I know, let's have Bomb Appreciation Day.... How do you do something like this?!" Of course, Malloy has repeatedly fantasized about the violent death or maiming of those with whom he disagrees politically or religiously. Here are just a few examples:
The battle over laws limiting gun ownership and use is far from over, but Rev. Al Sharpton is already looking ahead toward the next “weapon” he feels should be regulated.
During his radio program last Friday, the MSNBC talk show host responded to a caller who asked: “What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?” Sharpton's answer: “Then you deal with knives.”
Christmas: a season of generosity, good cheer, preparation for Christ’s birth – and a swarm of lawyers seeking to purge any mention of Christianity from the public square.
On everyone's mind this morning was the resignation of CIA Deputy Director David Petraeus on Friday. Liberal radio talk show host Bill Press did his best to catch his listeners up on the details of the scandal, but then went on a rant asking why it's even an issue.
At no point in his defense of the former Army general and CIA chief did Press bring up the impending hearing concerning Libya on Capitol Hill that Petraeus was scheduled to appear before, nor did he think an FBI investigation was necessary -- despite the confidentiality agreement Petraeus submitted to before accepting one of the highest, if not the highest-level security clearance job there is in the federal government [ video below, MP3 audio here ]:
Liberal radio hosts were furious with the Catholic League for mocking Hillary Rosen after she attacked Ann Romney for not working. Their tweet said “Unlike Rosen, who had to adopt kids, Ann raised 5 of her own.” This was seen by liberals as signaling Rosen’s children adopted with former partner Elizabeth Birch were “less valid, less worthy of respect” and homophobic.
On Friday, Bill Press confused the Catholic League with the nation’s bishops (they are not connected), but on Thursday, rabid atheist Mike Malloy was nudged into erupting about "child-raping" Catholics and their scummy "Nazi pope":
This could qualify as one of the craziest liberal rants ever broadcast on radio.
On Tuesday, libtalker Mike Malloy, whilst shouting about the Trayvon Martin shooting, asked, "How long before there'll be a 'Stand Your Pregnancy' law passed where any woman who starts menstruating can be shot dead because she wore a hoodie when she went out to buy a box of tampons?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
On the Tuesday edition of his radio program, an unhinged Ed Schultz railed on against conservative "pigs" that were out to get him, like our very own publisher, Brent Bozell. "You know, if these people want to fight every day, we'll fight every day. That's OK with me," Schultz pledged, insisting he was not afraid, unlike other liberals, to fight back.
Our friend Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer has a montage of Schultz's spittle-flecked rants. We've embedded them below the page break. Be sure to visit our Clean House at NBC website to register your disgust with Schultz:
Dear Mr. Roberts,
As the chairman of Comcast, you have a responsibility to your shareholders and the public to produce programs which follow a basic standard of civility.
Unfortunately, MSNBC anchor Ed Schultz regularly doles out hate-filled, venomous rhetoric which has reached a boiling point. MSNBC should not give Mr. Schultz a platform to spew such hate.
