Joe Arpaio, known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” is very good at what he does.

Pants on Fire: Chris Matthews’s New Problem with “Anti-Americanism”


“I decline utterly to be impartial as between the fire brigade and the fire.”
–Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 1927
For the past 6 years, Chris Matthews has hosted a show in which guests gleefully reported the purported success of both indigenous insurgents and foreign al Qaeda fighters in Iraq.  On his network, MSNBC, that became the [...]

ACORN’s Liar-in-Chief Blames Everyone Except Herself


The current chief organizer of ACORN, who was up to her eyeballs in the $1 million embezzlement scandal at the embattled radical leftist group, lied and lied and lied some more in an appearance at the National Press Club yesterday.
The contemptible Bertha Lewis, who now prefers to call herself “CEO” of ACORN, gave a “grand [...]

Mmm, mmm , MMM! Famed BBC Humor is MIA along with Media Matters’.


On Monday’s Morning Joe, “conservative” (for MSNBC) host Joe Scarborough moderated a panel discussion that would be the main talking point for the day on the liberal network— conservative celebration at Obama’s humiliation in Copenhagen.
Looking as glum as if his dog just died, and to top it all off, he couldn’t get his cup of [...]

Beck’s “Musings” Were a Joke, but Media Matters Didn’t Get It


The Media Matters irony detector must’ve been in the shop on September 16, when they roused themselves to mock Glenn Beck… for making a joke.

Media Matters’ Defense of Kevin Jennings Reeks of Desperation


You can almost smell the flop sweat at Media Matters. They’re dancing as fast as they can, to keep new victim-hero, “safe schools czar” Kevin Jennings, from getting the hook.
Here’s Media Matters’ latest desperate attempt to steer attention away from Jennings, by playing “shoot the messenger”: “Wash. Times continues to smear Jennings with false claim [...]

Ann Coulter is Right: Glenn Beck is Being Targeted for Destruction


More people turning against Beck, but Coulter offers a great defense.

Media Matters defends Kevin Jennings with “scare quote-fu”


On the left, using so-called scare quotes has become a favored polemical trick. You know what I mean: they put quotation marks around words or phrases, either to denote sarcasm and cynicism, or to engender doubt about a concept’s value and accuracy.
Scare quotes are a kind of hipster secret handshake — a shorthand way of [...]

MSNBC Continues to Ridicule Sarah Palin


Morning Joe is one of only a few shows on MSNBC that conservatives can watch without being insulted every couple of minutes. Of course, that doesn’t mean much considering that the network employs talk-show hosts like Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, but to give credit where credit is due — Morning Joe is normally [...]

Don’t Trust Public Schools, Beck Tells O’Reilly


On Tuesday’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Glenn Beck explained why he doesn’t trust public schools to educate his children:
Because I saw a change in my older kids when they went to school. And I also — I just don’t like revisionist history. I don’t like the fact — when my daughter, my second to oldest daughter decided she [...]
