This Week Mainstreams Al Sharpton: David Brinkley, Call Your Office


I like Jake Tapper.  I think Tapper is one of the few MSM big time TV people who don’t engage in what Bernie Goldberg dubbed the “Slobbering Love Affair” with Barack Obama.  There is no doubt that Jake Tapper is a huge improvement over Clinton Administration hack George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week.
I don’t know [...]

Obama’s Racist Southern (Hemisphere) Strategy


For 40 years it’s been a staple of liberal political history that Republicans under Nixon got tough on crime in order to appeal to racist white Southerners– who apparently would have been okay with rising rape and murder rates as long as rednecks were the primary suspects.
But now, Obama and the Democrats are doing precisely [...]

Chis Matthews: TR More Popular than Abe?


The weekend Chris Matthews show is generally made up of echo-chamber panels who– no matter what the polling– assure each other enthusiastically that Barack Obama is a political genius besides being our Dear Leader.
Today, after everyone had loudly proclaimed that the Obama proposed takover of the financial system was a political home run, not to [...]

NewsReal Sunday: Show Me the Verses– Rick Warren Naïve, Not “Leftwing”


Is this guy a “Leftwing Evangelical” too?
In his column about Evangelicals urging talks with North Korea, “forensic Protestant” Ben-Peter Terpstra zeroed in on some of the correct reasons to argue with Mega-Pastor/Author Rick Warren.  However, he accused Warren of “twisting scripture,” but then proceeded to counter Warren with the vaguest of Biblical paraphrases—but no actual [...]

Navy SEALs 2, PCBS 0!


Time to free this man.
In a story you won’t see on MSNBC, for the second time in 2 days, a Navy SEAL was acquitted of charges in the infamous terrorist-with-a-fat-lip case.
After a day-long trial, a Navy judge took 2 hours to come back with a verdict of Not Guilty of dereliction of duty for Petty [...]

Worst Demagogue in the World! Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 40


Hoping to gain attention for his failing sitcom, Countdown, Left Cable’s biggest mouth, Keith Olbermann regularly makes outrageous charges against hosts with (way) bigger ratings, hoping to draw them into a fight and get his little program some attention.
Not for the first time, Olbermann took on Rush Limbaugh, who steadfastly refuses to give the MSNBC [...]

“Game Change” Author Includes Limbaugh in Sedition Charge


Our Joseph Klein already did a terrific job of parsing Time Magazine’s Joe Klein’s deranged outburst on the weekend Chris Matthews Show that Sarah Palin and Glenn beck were guilty of “sedition.”
(It’s gotta be tough to keep up with making sure that people know the difference between Joe and Joseph.  I remember the first time [...]

Yes, Alex, “Survivor” Applies to Rape Victims


Ted Bundy in court.
With the enthusiasm of the young, Alex Knepper takes a good debate point WAY too far when discussing the reaction to his college newspaper column about “date rape.”
There is a legitimate point to be made that equating a consensual sexual encounter that goes a minute longer than one side decided is should [...]

MSNBC Space Cadets Defend Obama NASA Budget to Legendary NBC Reporter Jay Barbree


NBC’s Jay Barbree interviews Gus Grissom
NBC’s Jay Barbree is the only reporter to have covered every manned NASA Launch from the beginning of the space program.  So, as a bit of a living legend, NBC has to put up with him when he does not toe the party line—and that includes occasionally flustered MSNBC anchors.
Thursday, [...]
