CNN Cancels Soledad O’Brien Show, Says It Wasn’t Due to ‘Ethnic’ Viewership

Posted on 31 January 2013

The tumult at CNN that has seen several contributors leave the cable news network continued on Wednesday, when Soledad O’Brien’s morning show, “Starting Point,” was canceled because her program’s small audience was “too ethnic, based on the high concentration of minority viewers.”

Despite ending O’Brien’s morning show, a CNN spokesman told Politico on Thursday that “Soledad is very important to the network, and we’re discussing various options with her.”

Overlooked in all the comedy of watching Chuck Hagel testify to try and become this country’s Secretary of Defense was one, very telling moment that many in the media seem to have ignored.

AP Headline’s Complaint: ‘Economic Jitters Compete With Obama Agenda’

Posted on 31 January 2013

Darn that economy. Why won’t it behave? Doesn’t it realize that Barack Obama has more important things to do than worry about its health and well-being?

That’s the tone I get from a story headline at the Associated Press, aka the Administration’s Press, about how “ECONOMIC JITTERS COMPETE WITH OBAMA AGENDA.” The poor guy; he has to pay attention to something he must have thought he could keep at bay with continued but consistent tepid job and economic growth. Trouble is, yesterday’s report from the government indicated that the economy contracted at an annualized rate of 0.1% during the fourth quarter of last year. The underlying writeup by the AP’s Jim Kuhnhenn also treats the economy as an annoying distraction or possibly even a threat to his gun contral and immigration de facto amnesty efforts (bolds are mine):

Pat Buchanan compares Chuck Hagel to Reagan, claims he’s patriot because he’s from Nebraska! (Video)

Posted on 31 January 2013

For some odd reason, Hannity decided to have Pat Buchanan on, along with El Polo Bill Richardson to discuss today’s disastrous and laughable testimony by anti-Semite Chuck Hagel.  It almost seemed like Pat Buchanan and Bill Richardson where using the same Obama talking points, talking about how much of a ‘patriot’ Chuck Hagel is. Buchanan even compared Chuck Hagel to Ronald Reagan […]

IF Democrat Robert Menendez is guilty of sexual intercourse with underage prostitutes, he could face up to 30 years prison

Posted on 31 January 2013

IF (and this is a big if) Robert Menendez is indeed guilty of having sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republican, Menendez could face up to 30 years in prison. Until Menendez either admits it, or overwhelming evidence proves Menendez banged underage hookers, he is innocent until proven guilty.  At this point in time, there is […]

Not one, but FOUR hookers from the Dominican Republic have confirmed with the FBI that they attended sex parties that included New Jersey Democrat Senator Robert Menendez. What they did with Menendez at these sex parties is still ‘a mystery.’ The four women say they are afraid of retaliation because “they know the kind of […]

AP Whitewashes EPA’s Defiance of Federal Court Ruling on Ethanol Mandate

Posted on 31 January 2013

Let’s see. Last week, Josef Hebert at the Associated Press reported that a federal appeals court “overturned a federal regulation that cleaner burning gasoline contain corn-based ethanol.” Specifically, the court ruled, in Hebert’s words that “the Environmental Protection Agency had ‘the authority to set a standard’ for cleaner gasoline under the 1990 Clean Air Act, (but that) it could not ‘mandate the manner of compliance or the precise formula’ for the fuel.”

Today, Matthew Daly at AP reported that the EPA in 2013 will “require production of 14 million gallons of so-called cellulosic biofuels made from grasses and woody material.” In other words, EPA, in defiance of a federal court order will continue to mandate how these fuels will be produced. Daly, of course, didn’t characterize what EPA did as direct defiance. Here are several paragraphs from Daly’s whitewash:

Politico’s Byers Drags Romney, 13 Years After Leaving Bain Capital, Into a Story About Firm’s Involvement in Layoffs at Time

Posted on 31 January 2013

Someone needs to tell Dylan Byers at the Politico that the 2012 presidential smear campaign is over, and their guy won.

Byers seems not to have gotten the memo, and is still engaged in associating Mitt Romney with the firm he left in 1999 any time it has involvement in decisions relating to layoffs. In the current instance, Bain was engaged as an advisor to a new CEO at Time Inc. — meaning that management of the company involved could have ignored the firm’s advice — and not as an investor. It doesn’t matter to Byers, who named Romney anyway, even though Ad Age, the underlying source, didn’t (presented in full because of its brevity; bolds are mine):

Cal Thomas Column: ’60 Minutes” Missed Opportunity

Posted on 31 January 2013

In the days of the late Mike Wallace, “60 Minutes” was known for hard-hitting, aggressive journalism that asked the questions viewers wanted answered and held the powerful accountable.

The Jan. 27 program on which Steve Kroft interviewed President Obama (at his request, no less) and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fell far short of that high standard. It was the kind of softball toss you might have expected if Oprah Winfrey or Barbara Walters had conducted the interview.

Ann Coulter Column: Rubio’s Amnesty Would Be Disaster for the GOP

Posted on 31 January 2013

Apart from finding out that Barack Obama did far worse in his re-election than nearly any other incumbent who won re-election, the only thing that perked me up after Nov. 6 was coming across a Time magazine published after the 2004 election, when George W. Bush won a second term.
In the mirror image of all the 2012 post-election analyses, the Democrats were said to be finished, out of ideas, hopelessly unpopular. It’s like watching MSNBC, with the word “Democrats” replaced with “Republicans.”

Democrats had thrown everything they had into beating Bush, crushing the Howard Dean wing of their party and running a moderate — a Vietnam veteran, no less! They had George Soros, Michael Moore and Code Pink working like fiends to topple Bush.

Chris Matthews, Who Has Compared His Opponents to Nazis, Whines About Too Much ‘Hate’ in Politics

Posted on 31 January 2013

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Thursday assailed John McCain, slamming the “boiling hatred” aimed at Chuck Hagel, Barack Obama’s Defense Secretary nominee. Matthews sneered, Hatred, pure and simple, seeped from the mouths of John McCain and Lindsay Graham as they slashed away at war hero Hagel.” (McCain is also a war hero. Graham is a veteran. Are those with military experience only allowed to speak out if they agree with Matthews?)

Most ridiculously, Matthews whined, “Why can’t politics be a matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred?” This coming from the man who has, more than once, compared his opponents to Nazis? This from a man whose show airs on a network that compared Rick Santorum to Stalin? The cable anchor ranted, “Badgering the witness is too nice a description of what went on today. The hawks swirled like buzzards sweeping down, pecking and pulling at the skin of a former colleague.”

Life.com Goes Back In Time, Uses 1950’s Gun Safety Story To Work In Liberal Talking Points

Posted on 31 January 2013

Ben Cosgrove of Time magazine’s sister publication Life penned a piece today concerning gun safety in the 1950s, saying it was important for historical context about the gun control debate in today’s political environment. The Life editor dusted off a March 1956 Life story on an Indiana conservation officer teaching grade school children basic gun safety, using real shotguns and bolt-action rifles.

While the historical retrospective is instructive, Cosgrove’s accompanying commentary was fraught with liberal swipes, and missed the mark on the Second Amendment.   What’s more, Cosgrove insinuated that our gun culture is, and always has been, loaded with “insane” statistics when it comes to the harm it inflicts on society:

ABC’s Diane Sawyer Frets Over a Nation ‘Awash in Guns’

Posted on 31 January 2013

ABC’s Diane Sawyer on Wednesday pushed the pro-gun control angle as she highlighted the debate in Congress over a “nation awash in guns.” After World News reporter Jon Karl recapped the testimony by the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre and Gabby Giffords, Sawyer lectured, “…There are two facts driving those hearings today. Thirty Americans die from gun violence in this country every single day. And nearly 23,000 have died in the past two years alone.”

The anchor then mentioned “Hadiya Pendleton, an honor student and majorette” who was recently gunned down in Chicago by a gang member. This was Sawyer’s only example of “gun violence.” Of course, she didn’t mention the case of a Texas mother who fended off three armed intruders, shooting one. Erin (her last name was withheld) explained, “Protecting ourselves goes into, you know, our Second Amendment right to bear arms and thousands of people died to give me the very right that saved my life.” [See  local news video of her story below.]
