Sacha Baron Cohen Targets Republicans in New Showtime Series

July 16th, 2018 12:24 AM
Showtime claims that its new series Who Is America? “explores the diverse individuals who populate our unique nation.” However, Sunday night’s premiere episode makes it clear what the show is actually about—ridiculing conservatives. In the premiere, Cohen takes the form of four different characters, complete with heavy make-up, costumes, and accents. Three out of the four segments mock…

The Root: Burning NFL Jerseys Is In The Spirit of Lynching Blacks

October 1st, 2017 10:58 PM
Amid news and YouTube videos of pro football fans burning the jerseys of protesting NFL players, an African-American writer from Brooklyn alleges these actions are the modern manifestations of lynching, hanging and burning of blacks. Matthew Allen, a music journalist and television producer, made his inflammatory claims today in a blog on The Root.

Rape Fakers Must Pay a Higher Price

June 16th, 2017 12:09 PM
It's settled, but far from over. The University of Virginia fraternity that was slimed and defamed by sicko fabulist Sabrina Erdely will receive a $1.65 million payment, the fraternity announced this week. Erdely's manufactured tale of gang rape by Phi Kappa Psi members, spun through a manipulated UVA student dubbed "Jackie" and published by left-wing Rolling Stone magazine, combusted…

MSNBC: ‘How Much Blame’ Does Trump Get for Montana Incident?

May 25th, 2017 4:46 PM

During Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin just naturally assumed that President Trump deserved blame for Montana congressional candidate Creg Gianforte assaulting a reporter: “And how much blame should President Trump get, considering some of the rhetoric that we’ve heard from this president and – well, before he was president – and from the candidate himself?”


CNN's Jones & Lemon Wrongly Claim Rep. Walsh Yelled 'You Lie' at Obama

July 9th, 2016 1:04 PM
On Friday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of former Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh's appearance earlier in the show to discuss his recent tweet attacking President Barack Obama's criticisms of police activity, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones incorrectly claimed that Walsh had shouted, "You lie!" as President Obama spoke to Congress in September 2009. Host Don Lemon even…

WaPo Foreign Affairs Writer Digs Into Lauten's Juvie Record, Writings

December 2nd, 2014 10:56 PM
At the Washington Post, there is apparently not a darned thing going on in any foreign country that can't wait until Elizabeth Lauten's life is completely turned upside-down. That's what one must conclude, given that the paper, taking the already well-documented media obsession with Lauten to a new level, tasked foreign affairs writer — that's right, foreign affairs writer — Terrence McCoy with…

Bozell Column: Martin Bashir's Crude Emissions on Palin

November 27th, 2013 10:01 AM
Like most MSNBC hosts, Martin Bashir has been hypersensitive to slights aimed at President Obama, real or imagined. He was shocked at a picture in January 2012 that showed Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer pointing a finger at Obama on the tarmac in Phoenix. He somehow imagined the disrespect was "unprecedented!" When then-Rep. Joe Walsh decided to skip an Obama jobs speech before Congress in the fall of…

Aaron Sorkin's Fictional Republican: Why Must We Hate Gays, Science an

September 17th, 2013 4:52 PM
The HBO series Newsroom on Sunday continued its clumsy examination of liberal media bias. In the Aaron Sorkin-created series, "Will McAvoy" (played by Jeff Daniels) is a "Republican" anchor at the fictional ACN network. Yet, he constantly bashes members of the GOP in the harshest terms. In the September 15 episode, McAvoy, who in a previous episode referred to the Tea Party as the "American…

Chicago Sun-Times Charges Joe Walsh With Evading Child Support, Doesn

February 12th, 2013 6:19 PM
One of the things that self-described “mainstream” reporters like to tout about themselves is that they do not publish stories without trying to talk to the people discussed in them. Apparently those rules do not apply at the Chicago Sun-Times when the subject of a hit piece is former Republican congressman Joe Walsh. The paper on Monday posted a story attacking him but did not give him a…

Some Nerve: NYT Finally Covers March for Life, Only to Bury It Under S

January 28th, 2013 8:45 AM
Every January tens of thousands of people participate in the March for Life in Washington at the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. And for five years in a row the New York Times failed to run a single story on the march in its print edition (it marked the 2011 march with a couple of photos on page 12). This year, the 40th anniversary of the March, the…

Daily Kos Week in Review: Back in the URCR

November 30th, 2012 11:31 PM
You know those secession petitions that began circulating after President Obama was re-elected? Well, according to one Kossack, they're superfluous, since America's "increasingly deranged" red states already have, in effect, seceded and become "The Roviet Union, or more formally the URCR - Union of Roviet Capitalist Republikkks." As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or…

MSNBC Contributor Joy-Ann Reid Dismisses Black, Hispanic Republicans A

November 8th, 2012 3:51 PM
As if she half-expected conformity, the Grio's managing editor Joy-Ann Reid expressed doubt on MSNBC's Now with Alex Wagner that conservatives will ever be enlightened enough to move enough towards the center to win an election. Diversifying the messengers beyond white men and women simply isn't good enough to Reid, who condescendingly described Black and Hispanic Republicans as "window dressing…

CNN Blames GOP Reps for Women Saying Abortion Most Important Issue

October 19th, 2012 3:45 PM
After a Gallup poll showed abortion as the top issue among likely women voters, CNN's Carol Costello suggested Republicans are responsible – and not in a good way. "Why now? Maybe it's because there's been so much controversial language surrounding the issue lately, like Congressman Todd Akin's 'legitimate rape' comments," said Costello, bringing in the Democratic talking points. [Video below…

Tea Party Congressman Tells Free Contraception Advocate Sandra Fluke

September 8th, 2012 4:34 PM
Illinois Republican Congressman Joe Walsh had some harsh words for free contraception advocate Sandra Fluke Saturday. Appearing at a campaign stop in Addison, Illinois, the Tea Partier said, "A 31-32 year old law student who’s been a student for life, who gets up there in front of a national audience and tells the American people, 'I want America to pay for my contraceptives.' You’re kidding…
