“Keith Olbermann is not a black person.” Will this woman please run for office?


Nathanial Stuart has done something so remarkable, so groundbreaking that no MSNBC reporter could even fathom the sheer novelty of the idea: Have a conversation with an actual black person at a Tea Party protest. 
Stuart has produced an excellent video of candid yet illuminating comments by “conservatives of color” who were present at the Washington [...]

“The Other 95%” = 100% Lies


From the department of throwing crap at the wall until something sticks: Progressives have now become enamored with the idea of tax cuts. A new campaign of dubious origin has emerged called, “The Other 95%.” Its credo: “95% of Americans received a tax cut from Obama. But most of us don’t know it! It’s a [...]

MSNBC Space Cadets Defend Obama NASA Budget to Legendary NBC Reporter Jay Barbree


NBC’s Jay Barbree interviews Gus Grissom
NBC’s Jay Barbree is the only reporter to have covered every manned NASA Launch from the beginning of the space program.  So, as a bit of a living legend, NBC has to put up with him when he does not toe the party line—and that includes occasionally flustered MSNBC anchors.
Thursday, [...]

NBC News Race Card Play Rejected at Tea Party


Kelly O’Donnell, a white female reporter for NBC News and MSNBC, tried valiantly to stick with the lame race card talking points at yesterday’s Tea Party rally and failed miserably. Via Newsbusters:

O’DONNELL: Have you ever felt uncomfortable?
POSTELL: No, [...]

Hapless Chris Matthews Making a Joke of Himself with Continued Selective Outrage


Like the geek with a kick me sign on his back, Chris Matthews not only doesn’t get that Rush Limbaugh is directly gigging him with the constant references to the “Obama regime,” he is keeping the gag going with his continued manufactured outrage—and all of his MSNBC friends at the not cool lunch table are [...]

Alterman on “Climate Change”: You are Too Stupid to Understand


After his years of association with MSNBC, following tenure at Rolling Stone & Mother Jones, it should come as no surprise that Eric Alterman would tweet and ostensibly believe this:
stupid people are defining what people know about global warming http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2010/04/ta040810.html
and thank God that we have professional progressives like Alterman and his pals at Media Matters [...]

Rachel Maddow Joins The ACORN Propaganda Platoon


Rachel Maddow of MSNBC unveiled a profoundly dishonest assessment of the ACORN undercover video saga.
On her show she took irrelevant facts and half-truths and then made sweeping generalizations. This describes the Media Matters approach to waging war on “conservative misinformation” to a tee. If a semi-colon is out of place anywhere, you’re a contemptible liar hellbent [...]

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, [...]
