Ted Cruz Schools Candy Crowley on Travel Ban From Ebola Countries
October 19th, 2014 7:10 PM
Candy Crowley on what Rush Limbaugh would label the state run CNN show of State of the Union seemed to place her blind trust in the assurances of state affiliated medical personnel that a travel ban on the Ebola Hot Zone nations of West Africa was both unnecessary as well as harmful. It took guest Senator Ted Cruz to make it clear to Crowley just why such a ban was absolutely necessary.

October 19th, 2014 9:57 AM
During an appearance on Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos did his best to deflect criticism away from President Obama’s decision to name Ron Klain, former Chief of Staff to Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, as his Ebola czar. Speaking to weekend GMA host Dan Harris, Stephanopoulos insisted that “Ron Klain is an expert in communications, he's an expert in management. …

October 18th, 2014 8:05 AM
The Taranto Principle strikes again.
Dr. Tom Frieden, the Director of the Center for Disease Control, has just slammed headlong into the Taranto Principle. No wonder this smart, talented doctor is wandering around staggered at repeated calls to resign, calls coming from everyone from Fox’s Bill O’Reilly to members of Congress and a growing crowd beyond.
New Republic Editor Decides Political Hack as Ebola Czar Is OK
October 17th, 2014 4:51 PM
There was some soul searching on the part of The New Republic editor Jonathan Cohn over whether a political hack like Ron Klain with no medical experience should be appointed as Ebola Czar. However, that period of doubt was quite brief once Cohn was reassured by fellow liberals that being a political hack in that position was perfectly okay even if one was engaged in financial scandal as Klain…

September 12th, 2014 3:43 PM

Ex-Top Aide to Al Gore Mocks Priebus Debate Strategy: It's 'Disastrous
August 10th, 2013 7:49 PM
Former Al Gore chief of staff Ron Klain -- the man played by Kevin Spacey in the very tilted 2000-Tallahassle HBO film "Recount" -- wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post lambasting RNC chairman Reince Priebus with warning CNN and NBC they'd avoid debates on their networks if they aired promotional Hillary Clinton films. The Post headline was "The RNC debate 'threat' is either a bluff or a…

July 30th, 2013 7:12 AM
A year ago, co-host Matt Lauer quoted actor Kevin Spacey's description of his new role in the political drama “House of Cards,” playing "a wily, murderous politician worming his way to the White House." Spacey mocked Mitt Romney in response: "Kind of like this year, isn't it?"
Now, the liberal thespian insists to HotPress.com that Barack Obama will go down in history for passing Earth-…

January 10th, 2013 12:15 PM
ABC and CBS on Thursday hit Barack Obama from the left, fretting about a lack of diversity for his second term cabinet picks. The two network morning shows ignored substantiative criticism about Treasury Secretary choice Jack Lew, but highlighted the cutesy story of his messy handwriting.

Politico Comedy: Obama Has 'Gone Further' Than Any Predecessor to Keep
October 16th, 2012 1:25 PM
There must be some kind of alternative universe reporters at the Politico inhabit as they toil for the online publication. That's the only conceivable explanation I can conjure up when I read some of what is presented there.
Take a report which first appeared early Monday morning from Anna Palmer (please). If she weren't reporting from that alternative universe, she wouldn't possibly be able to…
NYT Lauds Obama Lobbyist Regulations, Ignores Numerous Lobbyists in To
February 3rd, 2010 1:33 PM
For much of the liberal media, President Obama operates in a vacuum. In their minds, if he says he will do something, he will most likely do it, even if he has a blatant record of not following through on similar promises.
Take Obama's lobbyist rhetoric, for instance. When the President claimed the White House has "excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs" he was telling the truth, sort of.…
Can the Cover of Newsweek Double As a Campaign Poster
October 19th, 2009 7:52 AM
Last week’s Newsweek starkly illustrated on its cover again just how much it’s rooting for the perpetual Obama-Biden campaign. Next to a picture of firm, smiling Vice President Biden were the words "WHY JOE IS NO JOKE: From Afghanistan to Health Care, a Vice President to be Reckoned With." It looked so much like a campaign sign, readers might have been unsure whether to read it or nail to a piece…

April 1st, 2009 2:59 PM
New York Times political personality reporter Mark Leibovich, whose mission is delivering profiles with attitude, mostly laid off the jabs in his Sunday front-page profile of what would seem to be an easy target -- the garrulous, gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden -- in "Speaking Freely, Sometimes, Biden Finds Influential Role."
Biden's history of colorful statements should have made him a…
