LOS ANGELES – Air America Radio, a radio network that was launched in 2004 as a liberal alternative to Rush Limbaugh and other conservative commentators, on Thursday shut down abruptly due to financial woes.

A Spoonful of Saccharine: Brown’s Victory Causes Temporary Memory Loss


If you went looking for comedy last night, you couldn’t have done better than tuning in to the Rachel Maddow show about the time that Scott Brown officially won last night’s election to succeed Ted Kennedy as Massachusetts Senator. Host Maddow and guest Chris “Shiver Me Timbers” Matthews were beside themselves, aghast at the results. [...]

“My God, He’s Still Talking!” Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 27


Click here for David Forsmark’s previous commentary on Keith Olbermann’s ludicrous slanders of Senator-elect Scott Brown.
Watching MSNBC last night was a good deal of fun.  Rachel Maddow lost her smirk and went glum all night, Chris Matthews babbled incoherently and engaged with some Democrat activist woman at the bar he broadcast from all night—and Keith [...]

Rachel Maddow’s Number One Security Threat– Pete Hoekstra?


In the aftermath of the attempted Christmas Day bombing of an airliner by radical Islamist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, Rachel Maddow alerted her audience to the REAL security threat facing the United States.
Guess which of the following concerned Rachel:

That the TSA is still not using intelligent profiling techniques that have kept Israeli flights terrorist-free for decades?
That [...]

Most Amusing Ad Hominem Comment of the Day: I have an “Adolescent Mind” Because it’s NewsReal’s Mission to Critique the Media


I received this rather delightful ad hominem attack today on the index page for Tim and Alissa Birkel’s Rachel Maddow series:

Glenn Beck’s “Midas Touch” Hurts His Credibility


There’s no joy in Mudville when I have to call out a fellow conservative. In his Dec. 10 episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart (NOT the conservative in question) launched into yet another satirical diatribe targeting Glenn Beck (the conservative in question). Nothing new there, except this time Stewart was right on the money – or [...]

NewsReal Sunday: Defending Gays and Still being Called Homophobic


Maddow attacks Warren for religious views on homosexuality and paints him as the enemy – even though he came out against Uganda proposed law to persecute homosexuals.

A Spoonful of Saccharine: If You Can’t Change Reality, Mock It


Rachel Maddow took a moment from her busy, busy schedule Wednesday night to mock Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). She did so, because he said something that hits perhaps just a little too close to home for leftists like Maddow who believe in the transformative power of government to fix all our ills.
McConnell had [...]
