Glenn Beck: Left Fox News to Keep His Soul ‘Intact’

-By Warner Todd Huston

While accepting a media award in New York City, former Fox News commentator Glenn Beck offered a little hint as to why he left Fox and went out on his own. It was to save his soul.

Beck made this revelation to the audience at the Tribeca Film Festival where he was awarded a Disruptive Innovation Award alongside such counter-revolutionaries as shock filmmaker Morgan Spurlock and reporter Jose Vargas who made news for outing himself as an illegal immigrant.

Beck told the awards attendees that he feels TV is a dying art form, but, as Jeff Bercovici reports, that isn’t the only reason he left Fox News.

“If you stay in it too long, you become Norma Desmond,” Beck said at the Friday, April 26 awards ceremony. “I remember feeling, ‘If you do not leave now, you won’t leave with your soul intact.'”

AP Edits ‘Muslim’ Out of Obama’s ‘Muslim Socialist’ WHCD Joke

April 30, 2013 | Filed Under Associated Press, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

In some of its reports on Saturday night’s White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the Associated Press chose to edit one of President Obama’s own gags. The AP strangely edited out the word “Muslim” in one of Obama’s self-referential jokes.

Early in his comments on April 26, President Obama made reference to his young life with a joke and a visual image projected on the video screen.

The President joked that everyone loves Michelle and mentioned that she has even appeared on magazine covers. The President said he also appeared on a magazine cover and showed a humorous mock magazine cover on the video screens. The faux cover showed the President golfing on the cover of “Senior Leisure.”

President Obama then said, “These days I look in the mirror and have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be. Time passes, you get a little gray.”

This joke must have been too insensitive for the AP in some of its reports, however.

(VIDEO) Hard Journalism: Chelsea Clinton Interviews Geico’s Gecko

-By Warner Todd Huston

On the April 25 broadcast of Rock Center, NBC’s special correspondent Chelsea Clinton “interviewed” the Geico Gecko, that fictional cartoon character that fronts many Geico Insurance company television ads.

The “interview” presented the Clinton progeny reaching the height of her journalism career asking questions with the sort of stilted delivery readily seen in any 7th grade stage play while the animated insurance spokesman replied with light hearted quips. Hard hitting journalism, indeed.

NBC billed the segment as “part of Rock Center’s look at some of the most popular television advertisements, Special Correspondent Chelsea Clinton talked to Geico’s Gecko. The Gecko reflected on his new book and his embarrassing high school yearbook photo along with his rise as one of television’s most popular ad men.”

Oddly, even in the description NBC acted as if the cartoon character is a real, living being.

NPR’s ‘Talk of the Nation’ Promotes Food Stamps

NPR’s ‘Talk of the Nation’ Promotes Food Stamps

-By Warner Todd Huston

National Public Radio recently aired a radio program focused on federal food stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). NPR presented the assistance program as seemingly costless–in fact, said it was an economic boon to states–and also acted as both an advocate and salesman for SNAP.

Additionally, NPR couldn’t seem figure out why the program had grown so tremendously even though “the economy has kind of started to improve.” Naturally, the taxpayer funded radio show did not note the millions of Americans that have simply given up looking for work in this second great depression.

The program also faulted Republicans saying they wanted to eliminate food stamps and cause poor people to go hungry

On its April 25 broadcast, National Public Radio’s Talk of the Nation, hosted by Neal Conan, featured a program titled, “Signing Up For Food Stamps: The Choice And The Stigma.” The program was essentially a giant advertisement for people to get on food stamps.

What Is This ‘Well Regulated Militia’ Business, Anyway?

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Question:

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, 1789: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

We talk about the “right of the people” to “bear arms” all the time. But we don’t often talk about the “well regulated militia” part that precedes it. So, what is it about? Is this militia still relevant to us today? Can we just ignore it? If unnecessary, does the lack of a need for the militia make the whole Second Amendment null and void?

Background:

Our founders had just fought a war with one of the greatest powers in the world. In the mid 1780s, British forces were considered the best of the best. But our founders hadn’t joined a war with a “foreign power.” They had fought a war with their own government in order to separate from it and start anew. This was because we Americans felt England had violated our very rights as Englishmen.

As our Declaration of Independence notes:

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

Another Example of How Our Miseducation System is Failing Our Kids

-By Warner Todd Huston

Remember how you were taught in school how to add a series of numbers? Remember how you were told to write each set of numbers on top of each other, to stack them so you could then add them together to get a total?

Kids aren’t taught that any more. In fact, the system of “cubes, sheets, sticks and dots” they are taught now is so convoluted, involved and confusing that it often results in wrong answers. But correct answers isn’t the goal for today’s fetid school systems. “The process” is all that is cared about.

If you aren’t infuriated by this video…

These are unionized teachers perpetrating this crime on our kids, folks.

Remember that.

Conan O’Brien Slams Republicans, Democrats, the Press at WHCD

-By Warner Todd Huston

Typical of when a Democrat is president, during a keynote monologue at the White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the President is spared from too many mean spirited barbs. In keeping with that tradition, TBS’ Conan O’Brien poked a lot of fun at Republicans and conservatives with a bit sharper stick than he used to poke Democrats.

This year’s WHCD started with a slew of media outlets discussing the now annual slam on the event as delivered by long-time Washington reporter Tom Brokaw. The semi-retired NBC anchor has lamented for some time that the whole party atmosphere, replete with musicians and Hollywood celebrities–fittingly, this year the Duck Dynasty folks attended–makes a mockery of the seriousness of the media’s work.

After the President delivered his spiel on Saturday night, late night comedian Conan O’Brien took the stage to deliver the keynote address.

Unsurprisingly, Republicans showed up early as the comedian’s targets and naturally, even though he hasn’t been in office for over four years, now, an obligatory slam of George W. Bush as “stupid” had to be delivered.

Near the top of his address Conan mentioned the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library joking that the library had “Millions of books, articles and documents and if you go you can be the first to read them.”

WHCD Lauded and Bashed

-By Warner Todd Huston

The White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD) has been a mainstay Washington to-do for years. Lately, however, it has come under fire for turning Hollywood–literally. In the wake of the event, some outlets continued the bashing but most lavished attention on the dinner or at least lauded it as harmless fun.

One of the quickest to slam the event was Sarah Palin, who did not attend. From her Twitter account, Palin indulged some rather salty language in criticism.

Britain’s Guardian newspaper was so fascinated by the whole thing, the paper set Jim Newell to live blog the night.

Newell opened his coverage with a nice slap at the pretentiousness of it all.

CBS’ ‘Big Bang Theory’ End Credits Push Gay Marriage

CBS’ ‘Big Bang Theory’ End Credits Push Gay Marriage

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Big Bang Theory ends each episode, after the credits, with what is called a “vanity card.” They are often a few funny paragraphs that differ with each episode, but this week’s vanity card again pushed gay marriage on the audience.

Chuck Lorre, the creator of the CBS hit comedy, has become famous for creating a new vanity card to end each episode of his sitcoms. Along with Big Bang, Lorre has indulged this practice at the end of such series as Cybil, Mike & Molly, and Two and a Half Men. Often times they are humorous. He’s been doing it since 1995, so with over 400 of them under his belt it was a lock that politics would sneak in among the “funny” ones from time to time.

In the past, Lorre has claimed that his end cards are not to be taken seriously. “The jokes are taken way too seriously and the stories all have to have a secret meaning… Don’t get me wrong. There’s a part of me that loves to exploit this silliness,” he wrote in 2011.

But that isn’t always the case. Take the end card of the April 25 episode of The Big Bang Theory which went political with Lorre pushing gay marriage. It is a partial re-peat, if you will, of a past card. This week’s vanity card reads:

3D-Printed Guns Can’t Be Stopped

-By Warner Todd Huston

According to many at the 3D Printing Conference and Expo, 3D-printed guns are inevitable despite the efforts of some 3D printer companies and politicians to try and stop it.

The expo now underway in New York revealed opposing views on the issue of printed firearms, but according to 3D gun advocate Cody Wilson, 3D-printed guns are not only already here but should be legal.

Wilson, the founder and director of Defense Distributed, scoffed at claims by other conference speakers that 3D-printed guns are still not technologically viable. “No, it’s here today,” he said from the podium.

Wilson’s group has printed several gun parts and used them to fire live rounds. Defense Distributed isn’t the only group that has done this, either.

Several 3D technology companies, however, are not as excited as Wilson about the possibility of printing firearms.

CNN’s New ‘Crossfire’ To Star Newt Gingrich & Stephanie Cutter?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Early in April, CNN reported that it was thinking of resurrecting Crossfire, the left-right political debate show it canceled in 2005. Now, as the network tries to regain its faded status as a cable leader, the network is reportedly wooing Democrat strategist Stephanie Cutter and longtime conservative bon vivant Newt Gingrich to helm a re-launch of the show.

Crossfire debuted on CNN in 1982 and was originally hosted by Tom Braden and Pat Buchanan the duo who first invented the premise as a talk radio show. As the years passed a series of hosts came and went until the series ended in failing ratings amid criticism of its often times shrill rhetoric.

Sources now tell Politico that Cutter and Gingrich are both in negotiations to host the re-launch. Neither personality returned calls to confirm their status.

Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives and past candidate for the 2012 GOP nomination for President, is well known. Stephanie Cutter, however, is notorious for her work as Obama’s former deputy campaign manager.

President Obama has upset the entire air traffic control system with his furloughing of air traffic controllers, shutting towers down, and generally inconveniencing every airline passenger quite despite his so-called “airline passenger bill of rights.” Obama claims the evil Republicans are at fault for slashing the FAA’s budget. But did they? A review of the real budgets/i> show that the FAA’s budget actually increased. It wasn’t slashed at all.

Obama’s FAA budget went up by millions of dollars. So, tell us again, why are we suffering a damaged airline industry?

Big Three Networks Cover Internet Cats Pics, Lit Trivia, Canadian Clumsiness, But Not Gosnell Trial

-By Warner Todd Huston

Another week has gone by and the Big Three Networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, again gave scant notice to the “house of horrors” that is the Kermit Gosnell abortion trial. The Nets had time for funny cat pictures on the Internet, a Canadian mayor bumping into a camera, and fun trivia about the book Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but little time for the shocking trial in Philadelphia.

As the week of April 15 came to an end, the prosecution finished presenting its case in the Gosnell trial, but the Big Three Nets still paid little attention to the story. The prosecution’s presentation included shocking horror stories such as parts of fetuses clogging the plumbing in the clinic, that assistants had no medical training or had no licenses to practice, that babies were born alive and breathing until Gosnell shoved scissors into the base of their skulls to kill them, that adult patients were killed by Gosnell and his workers but the nets weren’t interested on Wednesday and Thursday.

What did the Networks cover instead? An analysis by the Media Research Center of the three network’s programming revealed many fun and interesting stories.

On Wednesday April 17, ABC reported that Holly Golightly, the lead character in Truman Caport’s novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s, was originally going to be named “Connie Gustafson.” ABC’s Dianne Sawyer also had time to talk of comic book character Superman’s 75th birthday.

Social Media Site Reddit Apologizes for ‘Online Witch Hunt’ of Boston Bomber Search

-By Warner Todd Huston

Reddit has officially apologized for users’ assumption that an innocent and missing Brown University student was a likely suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.

In the few days between the Monday afternoon bombing of the Boston Marathon and Friday morning when it became clear that the Tsarnev brothers were being sought by authorities for the act of terror, users of the social media website Reddit attempted to ID the bombers through a crowd sourced search of video and photographs of the bombing site.

Unfortunately, according to Reddit General Manager Erik Martin, the effort became a “witch hunt” and proved to be just the sort of situation that the website had hoped to avoid.

“We all need to look at what happened and make sure that in the future we do everything we can to help and not hinder crisis situations,” Martin said in a blog post published on April 22.

Reliable Sources: CNN’s Kurtz Faults CNN’s, NBC’s Boston Bombing Coverage

-By Warner Todd Huston

On his Sunday broadcast, CNN’s Howard Kurtz was critical of both CNN’s and the rest of the media’s coverage of the quickly moving story of the apprehension of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects on Friday. “What is the rush to put this information that has not been confirmed on the air?” Kurtz asked of his own network as well as the rest of the progressive media establishment.

Many outlets got early aspects of the story wrong as events unfolded during that hectic Friday afternoon. Some sources said suspects were arrested long before they were and reports that there was “a body” on the boat in which bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev had taken refuge also turned out to be a garbling of the facts.

Kurtz noted that getting facts wrong this isn’t anything new for the media and cited the case of Richard Jewell who was convicted in the press of the Olympic bombing in 1996 even as he ended up being innocent.

CNN Builds a ‘Pressure Cooker Bomb,’ Tells Viewers How ‘Easy & Cheap’ They are to Make

-By Warner Todd Huston

CNN commissioned an explosives expert in New Mexico to build and detonate a homemade bomb built from a pressure cooker, filming the blast in slow motion to study the damage it can cause.

The demonstration, which premiered on April 22 during Erin Burnett’s Out Front evening program, was helmed by field reporter David Mattingly and featured “the same weapon” used “during the marathon bombings.”

Calling his sensationalist report “Cheap & Deadly Pressure Cooker Bombs,” Mattingly told viewers how deadly the bomb was not to mention how cheap it was to make and how easy it was to learn how to do it.

“Less than $100 worth of material and access to the Internet, and you can build one of these bombs,” he told anchor Burnett.

Mattingly and his explosives expert noted that the shrapnel inside such a bomb reaches victims sooner than the blast and shock wave does. “By the time you hear the boom, you could already be hit,” Mattingly said.

Resident Admits Tsarnaev’s Hate For US is Typical in Cambridge

What one resident of Cambridge, Massachusetts had to say about the atmosphere in that liberal area of the state was quite telling in revealing how essentially un-American leftism truly is. This resident practically admitted that the in that college town, everyone expresses the same basic hate for America that dead terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev so often did. When he terrorist Tsarnaev was heard attacking America in conversation, no one paid it any mind.

In interviews, Luis Vasquez, a Cambridge native who was in the same year at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School as the dead suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, said that the hate for America that Tamerlan expressed was so commonly heard around Cambridge that it was essentially unremarkable.

In response to Tamerlan’s claim that he had not a single American friend, here is what Mr. Vasquez is quoted as saying:

New York Times Defends Non-Coverage of Gosnell Trial, Says Trial is Meaningless

-By Warner Todd Huston

For The New York Times, editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal penned an apologia for the Old Media establishment’s disinterest in covering the abortion trial of Kermit Gosnell and essentially claimed that the trial is a meaningless incident when all things are considered, especially when it comes to the overall abortion debate.

“What does the trial of a Philadelphia doctor who is accused of performing illegal late-term abortions by inducing labor and then killing viable fetuses have to do with the debate over legal abortion,” Rosenthal writes.

Rosenthal excuses his paper’s lack of coverage of the Gosnell trial saying that the NYT has written “six articles” already so this, he believes, means they’ve adequately covered the story. He also maintains that there is “no rule” that a newspaper “has to run one piece about a bad clinic for every piece celebrating a good one.”

But a mere six articles seems rather lacking. As LifeNews.com’s Rob Schwarzwalder pointedly recalls, “I wonder why the Times, as it did with the trial of Tiller murderer George Roeder, did not cover such things as jury selection or pronounce endlessly on the assorted issues involved in the Gosnell case.”

Speaking of Tiller, Rosenthal also invokes the murdered abortionist and finds space to mourn his death and celebrates the reopening of his clinic.

Dear TV, I Don’t Care About Your ‘Reality’

-By Warner Todd Huston

I guess I am increasingly in the minority these days, but television entertainment has taken a turn for the worse. Don’t get me wrong, there are some fantastic shows, many of which are written on a higher level than TV has enjoyed since the days of Playhouse 90 and other serious early drama offerings. But on the other hand TV has made Newton Minnow all too prescient.

My point is, of course, that there is nothing worse than the so-called “reality TV” show. These things are indicative of almost all that is bad in American society. Sloth, arrogance, ignorance–willful ignorance, even–outright stupidity, lack of restraint, lack of decorum, lack of civility, hate… did I mention gutter-level stupidity… in fact, aside from murder, there seemingly isn’t anything bad about America these TV series don’t showcase for viewers.

So, for my rant today, let me just say…

Dear TV,

I hate your search-for-love series and hope everyone in them dies alone, driven mad by the emptiness in their lives.

I hope your fat children die of heart disease before they are 20.

I hope your hip hop-loving Bee-atches are killed by the one-night-stands they indulge on a nightly basis.

Hey Dhimmi Duckworth, Rep. Joe Walsh Was Right About Boston Bombers

-By Warner Todd Huston

TODAY: A bombing during the Boston Marathon kills three and injures over a hundred, some requiring multiple amputations. Muslims that had become naturalized American citizens perpetrated these crimes.

During the 2012 election cycle, then Representative Joe Walsh was attacked by his opponent, Tammy Duckworth–now our elected Congressman–and her campaign assistants in what we call “the press” because at a campaign stop he said there are homegrown radical Islamists in America that are just as dangerous as those overseas.

In response to criticism by Dhimmi Duckworth, Walsh said the following: “While the overwhelming majority of Muslim Americans are as peace loving as everyone else, there are radical Islamists right here in the United States trying to kill Americans and destroy this country.”

This man was turned out of office despite that he was 100% right. Now we have a terror apologist in that seat in Washington DC. This is only in keeping with a President that feels the same way as Dhimmi Duckworth.

Obama and Dhimmi Duckworth have failed to keep America safe. Boston’s blood is on their hands.

Joe Walsh now has his own radio show on WIND-AM Chicago.

The Corruption of Big Spending Democrats

-By Warner Todd Huston

Buried in a recent Politico story is a line that reveals the utter corruption of “money in politics.” But not that of money spent electioneering, but that spent by government from the assumed bottomless pockets of the American taxpayer. It is a corruption that has destroyed the Constitution, laid waste the rule of law, perverted our system, and crushed the American way of life and it must end.

The Politico segment in question is from an April 17 piece talking about the failure of the anti-Second Amendment Democrats of getting their gun-banning bills passed in the Senate. It is a quote from a gun-ban advocacy group decrying that “bribery” doesn’t work in politics like it used to.

“Bribery isn’t what it once was,” said an official with one of the major gun-control groups. “The government has no money. Once upon a time you would throw somebody a post office or a research facility in times like this. Frankly, there’s not a lot of leverage.”

It is a revealing quote.

Before the dust has settled, before any idea of who perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombing and why is determined, the Boston Globe is fretting for the city’s Muslims claiming that there will surely be a “backlash” if the bombers are found to be Islamic extremists. This despite that even after 9/11 there was never any real backlash against Muslims in this country.

For the Boston Globe, columnist Yvonne Abraham opens her piece sonorously noting that Boston’s “Imams have been praying for Monday’s bombings” and fretfully claims they are also “praying” that the perpetrator isn’t a Muslim.

Abraham then goes on to claim that Boston’s Muslims experienced a “backlash” after the attacks by Islamic extremists on Sept. 11, 2001. She even outrageously evokes Japanese internment camps from WWII.

He recalls the backlash that followed the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He remembers being afraid to send his children to school for a few days afterward, and the way some began to view all Muslims with suspicion, even hostility. A few fringe-dwellers even spoke of internment camps like those that held Japanese-Americans during the ≠Second World War.

This is all nonsense. No one talked of putting Muslims in concentration camps. Further, Muslims did not experience any backlash in the United States immediately after 9/11 or since.

Will PA Dem. Candidate for Gov. Allyson Schwartz Answer to Gosnell Questions?

-By Warner Todd Huston

We are all well aware that the Old Media establishment has done its level best to ignore Kermit Gosnell’s “house of horrors” abortion trial. But one person has yet to answer as to her thoughts on this trial: Pennsylvania’s Democrat gubernatorial candidate Allyson Schwartz, herself a former abortion provider.

In his April 15 article on how the liberal media has bent over backwards to avoid reporting on this shocking trial, John Fund does a great job of reviewing the failures of the media on the trial of Kermit Gosnell currently underway in Philadelphia.

As Fund so ably points out Gosnell stands accused of killing patients, conducting thousands of illegal abortions, running a filthy “medical” establishment, employing untrained and unqualified assistants, illegally distributing powerful controlled substances among many other charges, and his trial has been replete with heartrending horror stories, yet the media has had little interest in the story.

But at the tail end of his article, Fund points out a very interesting aspect of this story that until now has gotten little attention.

After pointing out that this trial is as much about the evils of uncontrolled abortion as it is about the political motivation of Democrats that are so in thrall to abortion that they won’t even agree to pass laws and regulations that hold abortion clinics even to standards of safety and cleanliness—or agree to enforce any already on the books–Fund asks where Democrat Allyson Schwartz stands on all this.
