The 0.5 Wit of Keith Olbermann – Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 44


For those of you with better things to do–and that’s virtually all of you–Keith Olbermann has this segment on his show called “Tea Time.” The intent, as far as I can understand it, is to mock and ridicule Tea Party members–definitely the road less taken at MSNBC and yet another reason why Olbermann has become [...]

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.

Note to Christians: Stop Writing Jon Stewart’s Jokes, Please.


Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took aim at the corporations whose deceit helped cause the financial crisis (I suggest everyone take a look at the “Jude Law” segment at TheDailyShow.com) and the latest scandals at the Vatican.
For those not following the story, the Pope is accused of having covered up the abuse [...]

Thiessen Vs. Stewart: Was Stewart Any More Rude Than Normal?


So I just watched Marc Thiessen’s appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, if for no other reason than to watch some bloodshed.

Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier featured a segment tonight on Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ blasphemy trial in the Netherlands. (See some of NRB’s John L. Work’s posts on it here and here.)

The obsessive attacks on Palin take yet another morbid turn.

Misogyny is Funny! If You are a Liberal, That Is (And if You’re Talking About Sarah Palin)


Editor’s Note: See Diane Suffern’s commentary on this issue from earlier today.
Jerry Adler over at Newsweek is up to familiar tricks; the typical leftist move of misogyny disguised as “humor”. I know. I didn’t realize Newsweek was still in publication either. Hey, I suppose the hip, cultured and enlightened folks need something to read whilst [...]

How Much Influence Over Popular Opinion Do Late-Night Comics Like Jon Stewart Really Have?


“The OReilly Factor” devoted a segment to the political influence of late-night comedy, focusing on Jon Stewart.
Stewart is an appendage of the Obama White House.   A self-confessed liberal, he  has no influence beyond his politically like-minded fan club.  The 1.6 million “Daily Show” viewership is lower  than  “Adult Swim” on Cartoon Network.
David Letterman’s adolescent humor is [...]
