Appearing on the Wednesday edition of Hardball, House Assistant Minority Leader Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) essentially blamed the conservative-leaning American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) for the, apparently unjustified shooting of South Carolina man Walter Scott by North Charleston police officer Michael Slager.

GOP Candidate's 'Sweetheart' Covered, Not Dem Calling Haley a 'Whore'

October 27th, 2014 8:45 PM
In late September, Charlie Baker, the Republican who is the party's gubernatorial candidate in Massachusetts, told female reporter Sharman Sacchetti, who had already asked him a series of questions: "OK, this is going to be the last one, sweetheart." That was enough to send the press into a tizzy. Jack Coleman at NewsBusters noted how Rachel Maddow at MSNBC turned Baker's statement into proof…

Same WashPost That Praised Cory Booker, Despite His Phony Stories, Sla

May 8th, 2014 7:59 AM
There are two black U.S. Senators, Democrat Cory Booker of New Jersey and Republican Tim Scott of South Carolina. The Washington Post demonstrated a blatant partisan tilt toward the former by cooing over Booker’s brilliance and national profile last year. The Post omitted Booker flat-out making things up, inventing a drug-dealer called “T-Bone” to tell inner-city stories. But on Thursday,…

'Idiot' Blogger Finally Apologizes for False Report He Posted During

November 14th, 2013 11:01 AM
One of the biggest concerns journalists have had since the explosion of blogs on the Internet is that people with no training in reporting will post “news” without verifying information obtained from a single person or uncertain sources. An example of what can go wrong when such a procedure isn't followed was a blog posted on March 29, 2012, by Logan Smith claiming that South Carolina…

Imagine That: Establishment Press Failed to Find or Report Colbert Bus

May 7th, 2013 10:18 PM
In the race to the bottom event known as South Carolina's First Congressional District special election, Mark Sanford has defeated Elizabeth Colbert Busch. Not that the establishment press didn't try to help Ms. Busch, to whose background they gave little or no scrutiny. And when two forms of scrutiny did arrive from independent quarters, first of her actual beliefs expressed in tweets before…

May 7th, 2013 4:26 PM
Have liberals already conceded defeat in today's South Carolina special election? Though polls show the race a true toss-up, some Democrats are attacking not just Republicans, but smearing the entire state as well. During today's Stephanie Miller Show, guest Charlie Pierce of Esquire Magazine slammed the Palmetto State as "tribal", "a cult" and the ultimate dig, "religious"! From the program:

Senior Editorial Writer of the Washington Examiner Sean Higgins published an informative column Tuesday night giving some background for a case that appeared before the Supreme Court on Wednesday morning. Shelby County, Ala. v.

NYTimes Op-ed Celebrates Sole African-American Senator as 'Token,' Hum

December 19th, 2012 3:26 PM
After a decent story by political reporter Jeff Zeleny Tuesday, the New York Times expressed in an op-ed a racially charged, far-left view on the appointment of African-American Republican Rep. Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate: as a "token," the GOP's human equivalent of the racist poll tax and literacy test. Besides offensively decrying in his op-ed Wednesday the appointment of Scott, the first…

Daily Kos: Colbert the Idiot Is 'Overqualified' to Be Senate Republica

December 13th, 2012 11:16 PM
For conservatives who aren’t enamored of liberal comedian Stephen Colbert’s “look, I’m an idiot conservative!” routine, it’s not amusing that Democratic pollster Tom Jensen went into South Carolina and found that Colbert was the “people’s choice” to replace resigning Sen. Jim DeMint. But David Nir at the Daily Kos thinks that’s just perfect, since Colbert the Idiot is “overqualified” in a…

December 7th, 2012 3:58 PM
Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) announced Thursday that he will be trading his Senate seat in January to assume the helm of the Heritage Foundation. Covering the surprising development in its Friday edition, Politico dismissed DeMint as a mediocre politician with an undistinguished record who is moving on to captain a conservative think tank that has become "predictable, uninspiring, and often lacking in…

Fed Court Panel Unanimously Rules Nothing Wrong with S.C. Voter ID Law

October 11th, 2012 5:46 PM
In October of last year, MSNBC cravenly played the race card by showcasing South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Dick Harpootlian insisting that that Palmetto State's new voter ID law would amount to "electoral genocide" of blacks. MSNBC's Chris Matthews carped that the GOP was "randy" to "roll up the vote." There are countless other instances of the liberal network attacking South Carolina…

South Carolina: Not Quite as Backward as It Used to Be, According to t

January 20th, 2012 4:27 PM
New York Times Atlanta bureau chief Kim Severson showed a little anti-Southern, anti-conservative condescension on the campaign trail in her Friday filing “From South Carolina, a Wary Welcome.” (Previously Jim Rutenberg had declared the state "famous for surfacing the dark undercurrents of American politics.")

South Carolina's 'Racially Charged Past' Emerging Thanks to Gingrich F

January 19th, 2012 9:10 AM
New York Times campaign reporter Jim Rutenberg filed from Charleston on Wednesday, amplifying racial accusations against the Republican presidential field, especially Newt Gingrich’s recent comments on Obama as a “food stamp” president, in “Risks for G.O.P. in Attacks With Racial Themes.” South Carolina has the nation’s first female Indian-American governor (a Republican), the highest-ranking…
