NewsReal Sunday: Apocalypse Now, Matthews’ Meltdown Part 2


Chris Matthews can’t let simple laws of physics get in the way of a good rant this week.  After calling for the execution of BP execs for not putting men on the ocean floor, he tried to make the oil spill a religious issue with the Rev. Jim Wallis, the liberal evangelical flavor of the [...]

Terrorizing Young Children: SEIU Thug Tactics


On his TV show Glenn Beck railed against the thug tactics employed by the Service Employees International Union and other left-wing activists against Greg Baer, a Bank of America executive.  (no video; transcript)
This is what happened: hundreds of angry, loud, purple-shirted SEIU members and National People’s Action activists showed up at Baer’s house in Maryland. They caused a ruckus, [...]

Glenn Beck and Goldline, the Weiner Link: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 49


Just to prove to David Swindle that I take his injunctions against time-wasting debates seriously, I am going to open with a skill-testing question.
I walk into Tiffany’s—flush with blogging income–and purchase their very reasonable 18k Gold Paloma’s Marrakesh Bangle (inspired by the intriguing patterns of Morocco) for $4,950. Later I discover to my horror that [...]

Illiterate? Become a Reporter!


One of the things I always marvel at is the lack of knowledge about current events that many journalists have, and how often reporters often don’t read about the things they are talking about. Case in point: The Washington Post’s Express Night Out’s summary of my May 13 post, “Stop Using the Nazi Card.”
In my [...]

Churches Push Leftist Radicalism


On his TV show Glenn Beck accused President Obama of “merging” the government with churches. (transcript, no video)
The point I suspect that Beck was rather clumsily trying to make was that President Obama is trying to use churches to advance his left-wing agenda, just as atheist Saul Alinsky used churches in his organizing days in Chicago [...]

The Filmmaker Behind the Most Talked About Political Ad Since ‘Daisy’


I first “met” Ladd Ehlinger Jr. last year, when his movie Hive Mind came out on DVD. No shrinking violet, Ehlinger contacted me. After all, I wrote a lot about talk radio, right? Would I be interested in getting a copy of his latest flick about what would happen if a radio talker like Glenn [...]

Fact-Checking Made Easy, Just Don’t: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 48


Is it just me or does Olbermann increasingly resemble the dweeb at the back of health class making phlegmy snickering noises during the sex ed movie? This seems particularly pronounced when he attempts (and the operative word here is “attempts”) to stick needles of knee-slapping satire into his favorite voodoo dolls. Monday night it was [...]

Chris Christie on His “Confrontational Nature” — Turn Down the Lights for This One


I don’t yet know if New Jersey’s new governor Chris Christie is “The One” Glenn Beck and a few million of his closest friends are looking for–i.e. a latter day George Washington – but I’m definitely  liking what I’ve seen so far. The clip below is from a recent press conference in which Christie utterly [...]

Greek Premier: My Socialist Country’s Screwups Are America’s Fault


In order to distract from the grave fiscal crisis caused by Greece’s cradle-to-grave socialism, Greek socialist prime minister George Papandreou is threatening to sue American banks.
Like his father before him who was also prime minister, Papandreou is the leader of the political party PASOK, which is the Panhellenic Socialist Movement. He is also president of the Socialist International. [...]

The Ben Shapiro Show is Top Notch!


I’m not a talk radio conservative in any shape or form. It’s not that I don’t recognize the talent and important of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck. Rather, it’s just not my style.
Even when I was a leftist I couldn’t get into Air America when it debuted. There’s something about the medium that [...]
