The Gray Lady on Sunday packed a tremendous amount of bias into the opening sentence of their “Most of U.S. Is Wired, but Millions Aren’t Plugged In.”
Brace yourself - here goes:
As conservatives, we know what happens every time we criticize the policies of the liberal occupant of the White House: We're instantly branded as “racist” and “intolerant” while our views are quickly and summarily dismissed.
However, Kevin Drum, a political blogger for the liberal Mother Jones website, has received similar treatment as he learned that no matter which side of an issue he supports, his mailbox on the Twitter social media website quickly fills up with emails from people taking the opposite view.
Senator John McCain made an interesting observation Sunday about National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, McCain said, “There's a young generation that believe that he is some kind of Jason Bourne.”
President Obama is taking questions from the news media. In the comments section, tell us what you would ask if you were a White House reporter.
I'll be covering the questions journalists ask of the president below the page break. As always, I'm doing this on the fly, so transcriptions of questions may be imperfect:
Al Kamen’s In The Loop blog on the Washington Post’s website needs to be renamed. It’s become unhinged. Emily Heil’s July 31 post for the feature literally blamed sequestration for the Snowden fiasco. Yes, according to Heil, because of that horrible, debilitating fiscal hatchet that Congress dealt last spring, Snowden was able to spill the beans on the NSA’s surveillance operations.
Despite the evidence that the effects of the sequester were minimal at best, Heil pressed in her post that Snowden just would’ve been a normal government contractor collecting paychecks if such a policy hadn’t been executed. Right, because the editorial board at the Washington Post has a magic crystal ball that nobody knows about. Did I mention the main source for such a claim is none other than... Snowden’s father?!:
A former senior producer for MSNBC came out with harsh words for his former network Sunday.
Writing at the far-left AlterNet, Jeff Cohen - the former senior producer of MSNBC's Donahue show - said, "When it comes to issues of U.S. militarism and spying, the allegedly 'progressive' MSNBC often seems closer to the 'official network of the Obama White House' than anything resembling an independent channel":
A group of far-left Hollywoodans has signed a petition asking Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa to grant National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden asylum.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this includes Oliver Stone, John Cusack, Roseanne Barr, and Danny Glover.
Former head of both the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency General Michael Hayden made a stunning remark Sunday.
In a CBS Face the Nation discussion about the recent leaks by Edward Snowden, Hayden said, "I can't imagine a government anywhere on the planet who now believes we can keep a secret."
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has said some amazingly stupid things throughout her career.
Sunday was no exception when during a discussion with NBC Meet the Press host David Gregory about National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, the former Speaker of the House actually said, "I think it's pretty good that he's stuck in Moscow airport. That's okay with me.”
