Media Matters Freaks Out Over Coverage of White House Advisor’s ACORN Ties


For amusement sometimes I read the Media Matters for America website.
If Media Matters, the left-wing character assassination factory with strong ties to liberal uber-funder George Soros, is denouncing something, chances are it’s something that ought not be denounced.
Take for example Media Matters’s apoplexy over the richly deserved pounding the radical activist group and crime syndicate ACORN [...]

Creators Versus Destroyers


Glenn Beck had a terrific show today, a basic lesson in the reality we inhabit. If you didn’t see it, watch it tonight. The first segment took off on Patrick Kennedy’s pious blather about how we should all be civil. Beck showed the contrasting images of leftwing fascists behaving violently in Pittsburgh and peaceful tea [...]

Mark Steyn Declares Side in Glenn Beck Debate


From The Corner Mark Steyn links to Kathy Shaidle’s recent NewsReal post on Media Matters’ recent smear against Glenn Beck and notes:

Using the pretext of a dubious poll question about whether Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, Rachel Maddow used guest [...]

Why So Many on the Right and the Left Can’t Figure Out How To Deal with Glenn Beck


Today one of our commenters, Ben, posted a link to Media Bistro on David Horowitz’s post about the newest installment in the debate with David Frum.
Ben did so to demonstrate an interesting point: Glenn Beck did fairly well in a recent public opinion poll. Only 19% of Americans have a negative view of him. Compare [...]

Glenn Beck, DiscoverTheNetworks, and exposing the left


In recent weeks, Glenn Beck has elevated political/news television to an entirely new level. Without fealty to any particular party, he is shining a light into the dark corners of a political cesspool that has been hidden for too long. He is taking the esoteric and making it accessible; taking the complex and making it [...]
