Morning Joe Advice to Dems: Stop Campaigning on 'Reason,' Act Like GOP
May 8th, 2020 10:29 AM
Has the pandemic caused the liberal media to lose whatever vestigial grip on reality it ever had? The question arises in light of a surreal conversation on today's Morning Joe between Mika Brzezinski and Eugene Robinson. The pair were discussing Robinson's latest Washington Post column, the gist of which is that Democrat campaign tactics are too nice, being based on "reason and…
Scarborough Lectures Dems: Let's Go Back to Good Old Obama Days!
March 4th, 2020 7:30 AM
On Morning Joe, Scarborough makes an impassioned plea, suggesting that "after four years of Donald Trump, maybe we need to go back to square one with the Obama administration and then move forward from there." He was unhappy Obama was described as a "conservative sellout," and Scarborough knows about being a sellout.
NY Times' Stark Romney Reversal: From Racist Oddball to Defiant Hero
February 7th, 2020 12:48 PM
Mitt Romney was the sole Republican to vote to impeach Donald Trump, and the New York Times front page on Thursday demonstrated its strange new respect for the Utah Republican the same candidate it spent 2012 vilifying for standing between Barack Obama and a second term -- in Mark Leibovich’s “An Act of Defiance Against a Party He’d Personified.” A text box on the jump…
How Tina Fey’s Condescending ‘30 Rock’ Predicted Trump’s Rise
April 27th, 2019 1:30 PM
Tina Fey isn’t in the Sarah Palin business anymore. In fact, the former Saturday Night Live star would rather avoid political comedy entirely. It’s too ugly, too divisive. Fey may have ginned up headlines by impersonating the 2008 vice presidential candidate, but she’s rather make Netflix content these days. There’s another reason she’s not getting her hands dirty in…
FLASHBACK: Matthews Smears Conservatives as the ‘Grand Wizard Crowd’
April 27th, 2019 12:15 PM
For all the talk in the liberal media about Donald Trump’s extreme tweets, you think there would be some humility on MSNBC. After all, that network is the home of Chris Matthews, a man who has been spewing the verbal equivalent of tweets since before the advent of Twitter. Seven years ago this past Tuesday, he blurted out a hateful comparison of conservatives and Republicans to the…
NYT's Stolberg: GOP 'Folds Up Big Tent,' All In on Trumpian Racism
November 8th, 2018 8:17 AM
New York Times Sheryl Gay Stolberg argued in a “news analysis” that “G.O.P. Folds Up the Big Tent and Unfurls Its Banner as the Party of Trump.” The online headline: “Two Years and Hundreds of Inflammatory Ads Later, the G.O.P. Is the Party of Trump.” Stolberg predictably found racist appeals from Republican presidential candidates going back to Ronald Reagan.
NYT Hypocrisy on Russia: Romney's 2012 Warnings 'Reckless...Unworthy'
July 20th, 2018 7:01 PM
The media is ready to convict President Trump of “treason” for his shaky summit in Helsinki with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and has been obsessed with Trump’s supposed “collusion” with Russia during the 2016 election campaign. But this new-found fear of all things Russia is more than a little politically expedient. The New York Times is just one outlet that…

Comedian on Seinfeld Show: 'Nothing Liberal About Shutting Someone Up'
July 10th, 2018 7:00 AM
One might expect Jerry Seinfeld's latest edition of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, "2018: Freshly Brewed," on Netflix to get political, since comedians just can't seem to help themselves right now in jumping on the Trump bashing train, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the focus on funny instead of on politics. In fact, when guests tried to get political,…
NYT Hypocrites Hit GOP on Russia, Ignores Own Anti-Romney Slam in 2012
January 11th, 2018 5:44 PM
An editorial in Thursday’s New York Times made hay of a partisan Democratic report concerning alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election: “A Grave Warning on Russian Meddling.” The text box: “Senate Democrats issue the most comprehensive public analysis thus far of Moscow’s war on the West.”
WashPost on Net Neutrality: Fake News vs Real Collusion
June 26th, 2017 1:21 PM
The Washington Post is a legacy, old school fake news outlet. Aside from the New York Times, no newspaper carries more national clout.
Largely because of how much they forty-plus years ago made of a third-rate burglary by a Republican presidential campaign on its way to winning forty-nine states. (Had Republicans not broken into the Democrats’ Watergate headquarters, they…
New Republic Writer Proposes a Lib-State ‘Bluexit’ From America
March 10th, 2017 11:30 AM
Separatist and secessionist talk has burgeoned in 21st-century America. The day after the 2004 presidential election, sulky liberals began circulating a map that represented pro-Kerry regions of the country as part of the “United States of Canada” and pro-Bush regions as “Jesusland.” Grouchy conservatives weren’t sure they belonged in a nation that elected and re-…
AP Bitter That Boeing Plant Obama's NLRB Tried to Stop Didn't Go Union
February 16th, 2017 12:30 PM
Meg Kinnard at the Associated Press betrayed quite a bit of unhappiness Wednesday evening and Thursday morning in her coverage of workers' decisive rejection of a union organizing effort at Boeing Corp.'s 787-10 production plant in North Charleston, South Carolina. In two very similar reports found at the wire service's Big Story site, Kinnard solely blamed "Southern reluctance…
