NewsReal Sunday: Pots and Kettles: Maddow and Schaeffer Call Evangelicals “Village Idiots” Who Must be Excluded from American Political Life


If your Evangelical Church had a business meeting today, Frank Schaeffer, son of Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer and owner of the world’s biggest daddy complex has an expression for what went on there—The lunatics running the asylum.
Using the pretext of a dubious poll question about whether Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, Rachel Maddow used guest [...]

David Forsmark’s “Meltdown with Keith Olbermann”


When we had to pick the NewsReal blogger who would be most appropriate to take on Keith Olbermann, MSNBC’s Volcano of Leftist Demagoguery, we immediately knew who the man for the job was: veteran political consultant and FrontPage contributor David Forsmark. As one can see from the six parts in Forsmark’s ongoing series, we clearly [...]

Tim and Alissa Birkel Call Out Rachel Maddow’s Spoonful of Leftism


For the past week NewsReal’s Tim and Alissa Birkel have been focusing on rebutting the smears and distortions of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. They have created a series chronicling Maddow’s missteps titled “Artificial Sweetener.” Explaining the title, the husband-and-wife writing team wrote in their first entry in the series:

Artificial Sweetener: A Second Round of ACORN Covering Fire, a Defense From Our Childhood


Imagine this scene, one that we imagine is familiar to many readers: you’ve just done something of which your parents do not approve. Perhaps you’ve tracked mud into the house. Perhaps you were playing ball indoors and smashed a prize lamp. Your parents scold you, preparing to hand down their discipline sentence. “But,” you say, [...]

Artificial Sweetener: Maddow Gives ACORN Covering Fire


Rachel Maddow’s dizzying intellect was on display Thursday night. By dizzying of course we mean “spinning so fast she can’t see straight.” Maddow has chosen defending ACORN as a perhaps-not-so-unlikely hill to die on. Thursday night, she vehemently defended ACORN, calling them a “trumped-up boogieman” and that ACORN “has been caricatured by people, like Congressman [...]

On “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski Spins His Remarks on Israel


Appearing on Morning Joe yesterday, former Carter national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski reacted to the outrage sparked by comments he had made earlier this week to the Daily Beast.

Shortly after Zelaya’s attempts at subverting the constitution in an effort to give himself expanded powers (on [...]

Not-Subliminal Man: Play “Name that Buffoon” with Lawrence O’Donnell


Tuesday night on Countdown, Lawrence O’Donnell, substituted for Keith Olbermann and he did his best to live up to the low intellectual and moral standards of the regular host.
O’Donnell, who styles himself as a more sophisticated and honest lefty, willing to take on his own side and occasionally praise the other side, engaged in juvenile [...]

Media Matters: where scare quotes magically transform facts into “smears”


 
One of the left’s favorite (and lamest) rhetorical tricks is to simply reprint one of their opponent’s statements, verbatim, and without comment. You see, the statement’s idiocy and offensiveness is self-evident, and will surely shock the conscience of any “right thinking” reader. No rebuttal required.
It’s a lazy, sophomoric ploy. I suppose the left has been [...]
