Beck Is The Media Matters “Misinformer” of the Year


In 2009 Glenn Beck became a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and the American left’s Public Enemy Number One, surpassing fellow conservatives Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O’Reilly in terms of pure hateful bile generated.
The hysteria infecting among left-bloggers was roughly proportionate to Beck’s effectiveness in [...]

It’s Not Just the White House That’s the Problem


Last night, Eric Bolling, sitting in for Sean Hannity, had Ibrahim Hooper on to comment on the need for profiling likely terrorists at airports in the wake of the Detroit bomber incident.
Bolling could have had a representative from al-Qaeda on to advise Americans on how to protect themselves from al-Qaeda attacks. Bolling neglected to mention [...]

Abdulmutallab’s Hot Pants Defense


Civil libertarians and other assorted Leftists were busy appearing on cable talk shows last night proclaiming the Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s constitutional right to a full-blown criminal trial in our federal civil courts.
Sean Hannity’s former co-anchor Alan Colmes, for example, expressed moral outrage on “The O’Reilly Factor” at the very thought of not treating the [...]

All Libs Want for Christmas is to Waterboard Conservatives


Sean Hannity may be taking a break for the holidays (leaving last night’s show in the capable hands of Mark Steyn), but the Left is still looking for reasons to put him on their naughty list.  Writing for the LA Times’ Brand X blog earlier today, Richard Metzger recalled that, in April, Hannity told actor-turned-commentator [...]

O’Reilly And The Wolf


“Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf came under withering fire the other night on  “The O’Reilly Factor.“  Bill O’Reilly called the producer a “despicable human being” whose TV crime series is “out of control.”  What prompted O’Reilly’s ire was a recent episode of “Law & Order: SVU” in which a character said:
Limbaugh, Beck, O’Reilly, all of ‘em, they are [...]

Censoring Sarah Palin: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 19


A week after Keith Olbermann said that the First Amendment should not apply to Glen Beck, Olbermann and constant guest Chris Hayes of the Marxist mag The Nation, excoriated the Washington Post for accepting an op-ed written by Sarah Palin.
OLBERMANN: Why did “The Washington Post” let us get lectured about science and politics by someone [...]

Sean Hannity and Birtherism: Give to Idiocy No Sanction


Media Matters is disseminating audio from Sean Hannity’s December 8, radio show, in which he takes a challenge from a caller over his support for conservative website WorldNetDaily, which is also one of the Right’s most aggressive advocates of paranoia over President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.  As Kathy Shaidle has extensively covered, Media Matters likes [...]

Apparently Nobody on the White House National Security Team Takes Meeting Minutes


For those of us concerned about President Barack Obama’s seriousness in prosecuting the War in Afghanistan, last night Sean Hannity offered a brand new cause for doubt – and it’s a doozy:
Video: Sean Hannity, 12/7/09

Hannity highlighted a Washington Post report recounting a jaw-dropping set of White House meetings with General Stanley McChrystal:
In June, McChrystal [...]

ClimateGate: Data Fraud is the Method, Statism is the Goal


With ClimateGate broken wide open, you knew it was only a matter of time before Congress’ leading crusader against global-warming alarmism, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), entered the fray.  Last night on Fox, he and Sean Hannity had an interesting discussion about the scandal…but it could have been better if Hannity had let his guest make [...]

Lazy Media Matters Tries to Expose Right-Wing Media Bias


Some claims are too petty even for Media Matters to make on the merits alone.  Unfortunately, that’s not to say they have the good sense to abandon such attacks—no, they just need a little extra padding, like dredging up old, unrelated controversies to make them seem more significant.
Such is the sorry state of their latest [...]
