Fox News Delivers the Progressive Slapdown


When I was a newly-minted journalist we called Ted Turner’s Cable News Network the Chicken Noodle Network. Today that poultry- based moniker seems poised to make a return.  The NY Times reports this morning:
CNN continued what has become a precipitous decline in ratings for its prime-time programs in the first quarter of 2010, [...]

Democrats Drop Deem and Pass. Good News or Bad News?


This is breaking news: Democrats in Congress have abandoned deem and pass (or the slaughter house rule). After thinking about it for a while, I realized that my initial reaction may have been wrong. As Ed Morrissey explains at Hot Air:
If anyone wonders which it is, Major Garrett of Fox News helpfully tweeted that he [...]

Roger Ailes Warns Fox News Staffers Not To Attack Glenn Beck


Fox News founder Roger Ailes has had enough of the vitriol aimed at popular talk show host Glenn Beck. And no, I’m not talking about the trash coming from the Left but from Fox staffers. Yeah, seriously:
A column in the Washington Post on Monday revealed that some Fox staffers are concerned the celebrity pundit is [...]

Kucinich Confirms That Today’s Obamacare Is Only The Beginning


Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich, who flipped his vote from “no” to “yes” after his ride with President Obama on Air Force One, just admitted on Fox & Friends what we suspected all along.  If the current version of Obamacare passes – as it looks increasingly likely that it will – an even more radical Obamacare II  [...]

Another Look At FOX News’ Hatchet Job On Geert Wilders


Following the gang hatchet job on Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders by two separate FOX News crews a few nights ago, FOX pulled down all the video footage from the internet – like it never happened. Well, it did happen.  Jim Angle, Glenn Beck, Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer and A.B Stoddard all did the dirty work during [...]

Promote Diana West To Detective – She Found Em Out Over At FoxNews’ Mugging Of Geert Wilders


So, what’s up with FoxNews?  Yesterday, Jim Angle, Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, and Glenn Beck tag-teamed Geert Wilders.  Beck climbed up and jumped off the top rope onto Wilders’ head by strongly insinuating that Geert is a fascist.  It was like a Hulk Hogan WWE massacre, but this time for real.  What in the world [...]

Michele Bachmann’s Comments On Larry King Live Send Denver Columnist Into Near-Seizure


Congressional Representative Michele Bachmann’s appearance on CNN’s Larry King live a few days ago has sent the Denver Examiner’s Keith Vance, not to mention the Obama White House,  into a state close to hysteria.  Vance is calling Bachmann a liar and accusing her of being part of the conservative smear machine – because she matter-of-factly called for [...]

When Fox News Might as Well Be MSNBC: Special Report Trashes Geert Wilders


Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier featured a segment tonight on Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ blasphemy trial in the Netherlands. (See some of NRB’s John L. Work’s posts on it here and here.)
The segment featured these descriptors of Wilders:

Lamestream Media Ignores Congressmen Calling for Exoneration of Navy SEALs in “Fat Lip” Court Martial


Navy SEAL Matthew McCable listens at the press conference
The mainstream media, who love stories of the falsely accused, who have given publicity to every cop killer befriended by radicals and celebrities, basically ignored yesterday’s press conference by 3 Republican congressmen, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-California; Rep. Dan Burton, R-Indiana; and Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, demanding that [...]
