So-called fact-checking website PolitiFact proved just how much of a hack organization they were on Thursday when they announced that they were hiring former Florida Congressmen David Jolly (R) and the infamous Alan Grayson (D).

July 27th, 2016 5:17 PM
If a Republican Congressman had gotten into a physical altercation with a reporter at the GOP convention it’s a good bet it would have been plastered all over the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network and cable newscasts.

June 13th, 2016 12:24 PM
Erin Burnett revealed her pro-gun control bias on a special edition of her CNN show on Sunday. Rep.

November 30th, 2015 10:07 PM
It’s been a while (not really) since we’ve heard any crazy comments from our favorite ambulance chaser-turned-congressman from Florida, but now he’s going full-on birther mode when it comes to Sen.

March 5th, 2014 12:46 AM
Here's another entry for the "name that party" file. Ambulance-chasing lawyer cum melodramatically hyper-partisan Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson (Fla.) has been accused by his estranged wife of violently shoving her during a dispute.
The Orlando Sentinel has the story. The paper buried the party affiliation at the tail-end of the article, but they at least mentioned the…
MSNBC Forgets Widespread Liberal Hype of 'Debt Slavery' in Palin Attac
November 18th, 2013 2:08 PM
Liberals love to portray conservatives as idiots and slavery sympathizers. Despite such vicious attacks, these same lefties often forget their own inflammatory language.
MSNBC host Martin Bashir made particularly disgusting comments on Nov. 15, attacking former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for comparing federal debt to slavery. Apparently, Bashir was too busy suggesting that someone ought to…

October 24th, 2013 8:55 AM
When it comes to liberals standing up to indefensible rhetoric from others on the Left, the Daily Beast's Jamelle Bouie illustrates how NOT to do it.
Oh, sure, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) was wrong to compare the Tea Party with the KKK but "it would be needless political correctness to dismiss the Tea Party as completely unrelated to the Klan, or at least, the reactionary currents…
