Media Keep Citing Bogus Stat about Catholics and Birth Control
July 7th, 2014 12:48 PM
Since the Hobby Lobby decision, liberals have been sputtering about the War on WomenTM and trotting out arguments that are both beside the point and dubious in themselves.
Take for example liberal radio personality Stephanie Miller. On CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley on July 6, Miller declared, “Every woman I know is furious about the hobby lobby…
Bill Press: Reagan Removed Solar Panels from White House Because He wa
May 15th, 2014 8:20 PM
Don't you love it when liberals look back through history? Who knows what novel interpretations will follow!
Radio host and former California Democratic Party chief Bill Press provided a stellar example of this while talking about the decades-long alleged imminent threat posed by climate change, previously known as global warming until the climate characteristically refused to cooperate…
Bill Press Likens Rubio on Climate Change to 'Totally Nuts' People Spo
May 15th, 2014 5:50 AM
Sen. Marco Rubio expresses doubt that human activity is driving climate change and Bill Press, liberal radio talker and co-host of an early version of CNN's "Crossfire," labels him deranged. Just a matter of time before Press also labels Rubio as racist for this.
Now well into its third decade as an allegedly imminent catastrophic threat, global warming is among liberals'…
MSNBC Sees GOP 'War on Voting,' FNC Viewers 'Dumb Enough to Believe' O
April 12th, 2014 1:57 PM
On the Friday, April 11, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, host Al Sharpton led the show by pushing the liberal mantra that Republicans are in a "war on voting" as he highlighted President Obama's speech earlier that day to Sharpton's own left-wing National Action Network organization on the subject of voting rights.
And later in the show, as Sharpton hosted a segment dismissing the…
Alec Baldwin Producing Documentary on Barney Frank, 'a Personal Hero o
March 28th, 2014 7:11 PM
Little more than a month after Alec Baldwin declared “goodbye to public life,” the liberal actor is back in the news after signing on as an executive producer of a documentary entitled Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank, which will debut on April 27 at the Tribeca Film Festival in lower Manhattan.
Barney Frank -- an openly gay, recently retired Congressman…
Bill Press Dazzled by Obama's Handling of 'Tough Questions' on 'Betwee
March 18th, 2014 7:59 PM
Next thing you know, Bill Press will be gushing about Obama's ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Press just might be the only sentient person alive who actually believes that Obama's appearance on "Between Two Ferns" at the comedy website Funny or Die was unscripted. At least that's the impression Press gave while talking with Rebecca Sinderbrand of…
HuffPo Scribe Can't Decide if Obama's OT Order is 'Really Huge Deal' o
March 18th, 2014 7:49 AM
A useful rule of thumb for discerning what liberals actually think about any given policy emanating from the Obama administration -- wait a few minutes after their initial gushing. Usually the gush continues indefinitely, but unexpected candor will occasionally surface.
An example of this curious dynamic was heard on libtalker Bill Press's radio show March 14 during a discussion with one…
Bill Press Touts Socialist Bernie Sanders as 'The Definition' of 'True
March 11th, 2014 9:39 AM
That he is, Bill, that he is! On this we agree.
Don't you love it when liberals swoon over Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the only avowed socialist in the U.S. Senate? Operative word here -- "avowed." Sanders, to his credit, has the courage to be transparent in his political beliefs. Many of his ideological cohorts on Capitol Hill aren't as bold and describe themselves…
Bill Press Laughably Claims Hateful Liberal Talk Not As Bad As Conserv
March 7th, 2014 5:58 PM
You would think that MSNBC hosts might not want to invite Bill Press on their shows to talk about supposedly inflammatory conservative rhetoric, given Press’s track record of vile left-wing bile. But on Thursday, host Al Sharpton once again invited Press onto PoliticsNation to discuss what the reverend called conservatives’ “ugly, very ugly attacks on the president over the…
Dude! Bill Press Admits He Was Pothead While Working for Gov. Jerry Br
March 4th, 2014 4:52 PM
Radio libtalker Bill Press did much yesterday to explain why he more than occasionally comes across as addled. Then again, it's probably only his politics responsible for conveying that impression.
In what is unlikely to come as a shock to his former boss, Press said there were "potheads" who worked in the state bureaucracy for California Gov. Jerry Brown, and that Press was…
On MSNBC, Hateful Bill Press Slams Right-Wingers ‘Driven By Hate
February 14th, 2014 6:45 PM
You have to love the hypocrisy of certain liberal media figures regarding hateful rhetoric. On Thursday evening, left-wing talk radio host Bill Press appeared on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation to comment on some supposedly inflammatory remarks from Rush Limbaugh and Dr. Ben Carson. [Video below. MP3 audio here.]
Yes, this is the same Bill Press who makes inflammatory remarks all the time on…
Bill Press and Lefty Scribe Agree: Obama Foreign Policy is 'Most Nuanc
February 14th, 2014 12:19 PM
Never thought I'd see the day that a prominent member of the liberal media establishment praised the Prince of Darkness himself, aka Richard Milhous Nixon, and one of his liberal media cohorts agreed.
Moreover, Nixon was described favorably while being compared to the erstwhile would-be Messiah occupying the Oval Office, Barack Hussein Obama. Strange days indeed, to borrow from John…
Bill Press is Indignant That MSNBC Apologized for Vile Cheerios Ad Twe
February 4th, 2014 9:06 AM
When anyone can be described as left of MSNBC, they are heading into fringe territory. Or as Bill Press thinks of it, home sweet home.
In yet another futile attempt to remain relevant, Press on his radio show lashed out at MSNBC for apologizing for a Twitter post last week claiming that conservatives might "hate" a new Cheerios commercial featuring a biracial family. (Audio after…
