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 [...]

More about Nielson Ratings, from a former industry insider


I got an email today I’d like to share with you:
Hi Kathy …
Your comment today about Glenn Beck’s “falling” Nielsen ratings was bang on, especially when you wondered if the recession has some people cutting off the cable TV.
It does, but it’s a tiny bit more complex than that.
* Nielsen’s NATIONAL ratings are measured via [...]

Charge Goldman Sachs? It Runs The Obama Administration.


Glenn Beck expressed alarm on his TV show that so many lawmakers on Capitol Hill seem willing to go along with the Obama administration’s planned crackdown on Wall Street (no video; transcript here):
Is it just me who thinks this is a bad idea? Am I alone? I guess so, because even Republicans are OK with [...]

Daily Kos Kook Founder Says Americans Should Shut Up And Take It


Tea Party supporters should shut up and let President Obama destroy America if they know what’s good for them, a prominent leftist agitator says.
On his TV show Glenn Beck highlighted recent remarks made by propagandist Markos Moulitsas, founder of the vile, hateful left-wing website, Daily Kos. (video not available; transcript here) Moulitsas said
I mean, this [...]

Joe Klein Reads Off His Napkin: Beck and Palin “Rub Right Up Close To Being Seditious”


Times columnist Joe Klein never misses an opportunity to make a fool of himself.  His latest bufoonery was displayed on NBC’s April 18 edition of “The Chris Matthews Show.”   
I did a little bit of research just before this show – it’s on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition which is conduct [...]

Glenn Beck: Congressman Paul Ryan is Wrong about Progressivism


Our favorite talk show host Glenn Beck recently criticized Paul Ryan, for giving a speech in which he tried to rehabilitate progressives such as Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Beck’s criticism came after he read this post over at the popular conservative Hot Air blog, in which Ryan is praised for being a “real progressive.” Unlike Ryan, Beck [...]

As His Group Faces Financial Collapse, Race-Baiting, Tax-Cheating Serial Liar Al Sharpton Does A Show About Nothing


Racial bomb thrower and poverty pimp extraordinaire Al Sharpton came on the “Glenn Beck Program” and had a touchy-feely discussion with the host about, well, nothing.
The topic was supposed to be faith, hope, and charity, but instead Beck and Sharpton just patted themselves on the back for being so civil to each other and because they were [...]

Apple promotes Marxist murderer’s rants while boycotting Fox News


Some cynics feel young people today are petulant ingrates, reclining in cushy bubbles of ignorance inherited through their grandparent’s blood, sweat, and tears. But, luckily, Apple Computer’s new Che Guevara iPhone app is proof that we needn’t worry about that anymore.
Guevara would be gratified to see how many insight-challenged Americans impose his slimy mug [...]

The Glenn Beck Program Welcomes … Naomi Wolf?


Third wave feminist Naomi Wolf knows how to speak the Tea Party language, peppering her conversations with talk of tyranny, freedom, the Constitution, and the Founders. And she knows how to appeal to the conspiracy-minded fringe.  But if she’s going to succeed in her quest to latch onto the Tea Party movement, she’ll need access [...]

Social Justice as a Code Word for Socialism: Remembering the Young Barack Obama


I’m excited I stumbled over Richard Wolffe’s article, “When Barry Became Barack,” Newsweek, March 31, 2008.  This piece covers the period around when I first met the young Barack Obama, during his sophomore year at Occidental College in Los Angeles.

My review of this article is particularly relevant right now [...]
