To Aid Obama, Old Media Establishment Took a Pass on Gruber Videos

The man who was trying to shop the Gruber videos to the media was rebuffed by the Old Media Establishment repeatedly because they had no interest in highlighting the fact that Obama and his Obamacare cohorts were lying to the American people about the President’s signature healthcare law.

Howard Kurtz tracked down the man who was trying to get the media to notice the string of videos showing Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber telling audiences that the American voters are “stupid” and saying that the administration lied repeatedly about what was in Obamacare and how it would work all in a desperate attempt to get the President’s take over of our national healthcare system passed into law.

Kurtz tracked down the man, Rich Weinstein, and found a man who doesn’t himself want to become the story. In fact, he wouldn’t even supply Kurtz with a photo of himself.

Despite Rabble-Rousers Urging Ferguson Citizens to Vote, Few Bothered

After months of rioting, one of the main themes that many left-wing rabble-rousers have been pushing on residents of Ferguson is to register to vote so that they can “change” their local government. But despite all the rhetoric, few Ferguson residents bothered to vote last Tuesday.

A big criticism of Ferguson, Missouri’s government is that there are “too many white people” in it. Activists have maintained that only a slate full of black candidates can properly govern the largely black population of the city. So, to throw out the few whites on the council, activists have urged citizens to register to vote and usher in a utopian black government.

But despite all the caterwauling of activists, it appears that Ferguson residents still weren’t motivated very much to go register and vote.

‘Meet The Press’ Update: Top Ten Most Left-Biased American Journalists – #4: Chuck Todd, NBC

August 11, 2014 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, MSNBC, NBC, Progressives, TV, Uncategorized, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

With NBC’s Chuck Todd on the verge of replacing Dave Gregory as the next host for NBC’s Meet The Press, I am beginning to get hits on my old post on him. This info is all quite true, so read on about just how biased this guy is.

Back in 2010 I created a list of the top ten most left-biased journalists (see the full list at the bottom of this post). Chuck Todd was then the fourth most biased in my list. He is still just as biased and with the rumors that he is about to take over the Sunday show, I thought I’d repost this entry.

Original post…

All week we’ve been exploring America’s ten most left-biased working journalists and now we come to spot number four on the list. And so, for his close attention to pushing the spin and as one of the most active members of the Old Media’s Obama Butt Covering squad, we are pleased to award the number four spot to NBC Political Director Chuck Todd.

Todd is one of those journos that came from Democrat political circles — having worked for Iowa Democrat Senator Tom Harkin’s 1992 presidential run — and then crossed over into the world of “journalism.” With that you just know that he can be as unbiased as the best of them in his reporting. Well, if he can we’ll never know it because so far he has not been. Just the opposite, really.

Todd has done a bang-up job for the left in his journalism career. Likely Todd’s loyalty to the Democrat Party is probably why he felt the need to slam Senator Joe Lieberman last year, for instance. Proving his blindness to real political analysis, Todd claimed that Joe Lieberman was the “polar opposite” of the Senate’s lone socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (officially an “independent”).

MSNBC’s Hard Hitting Reporter, Krystal Ball, a Noted ‘Dumb Ass’

In its hard hitting, action packed, information filled coverage of the downing of the Malaysian jet over Ukraine today, MSNBC found time to speak to a highly placed military source who noted… live on the air…. that the plane was downed by a blast of wind “from Howard Stern’s ass.”

In response to that, MSNBC’s Krystal Ball, a vision of journalistic integrity and veracity, went on to ask this important military source what sort of missile was used on the jet.

Then she was told, “boy you’re a dumb ass, aren’t cha?”

Now THAT is journalism… well, what passes for it on the left, anyway.

No Coverage: MSNBC Ignores Growing Veterans Admin Scandal

-By Warner Todd Huston

MSNBC doesn’t appear to care about our nation’s beleaguered veterans in this mounting medical care scandal. Only one of the left-wing cable network’s prime-time hosts have covered the scandalous treatment of our sick vets and then only once.

The developing scandal has revealed that thousands of veterans have been put on secret wait lists and denied healthcare while VA hospital administrators lie about having done so in order for doctors and administrators to get government bonuses. Many veterans have died while awaiting medical treatment and these months-long wait times only foreshadow what will happen to all of us as Obamacare’s horrid tentacles force its way into our national healthcare system.

But MSNBC doesn’t seem at all interested in news that doesn’t fit its extreme, blindly left-wing bias. The network is completely ignoring the story, even though one administration official has already “resigned” because of the whole thing.

Sometimes a celebrity will Tweet something, so blatantly a-historical, something so totally outrageous and insensible, that even they realize how bad it is and will try to delete it right away. But someone will always be there to preserve the evidence.

Well, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz just found out that Twitter is forever when he Tweeted that gays were “really” the ones persecuted during Hitler’s holocaust. Seriously. A guy with a German surname just said that. In public.

The MSNBC host Goodwined himself before anyone else even said a word with a Tweet where he informed the world of who was the “real” target of Hitler’s Final Solution.

“Gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler’s Germany,” Schultz blurted out on his EdShow Twitter feed at ten to 5 PM on May 12.

Schultz accompanied his Tweet with an image of a webpage that reported on the thousands of gays that the Nazis reportedly put to death or otherwise interned in their odious death camps.

MSNBC’s Racist Cinco de Mayo: White Guy Pretends to Get Drunk on Tequila While Wearing Sombrero

Now, imagine if Fox News had “celebrated” Cinco de Mayo by having a white guy wearing a dime store, straw sombrero and wandering across the screen pretending he’s drunk on tequila. The media wagging tongues would have made it into the worst example of racism since… well, last week’s Sterling incident.


MSNBC’s Racist Cinco de Mayo Celebration

But that it happened on MSNBC, no one will likely throw the race card at the extremist, left-wing cable network.

Still, that is what happened on MSNBC when network’s morning show, Way too Early, made the switch to its low-rated Morning Joe.

As Way too Early was coming to a close on May 5, a show producer named Louis Burgdorf–obviously a white guy–paraded across the screen in front of the host’s station wearing a cheap Mexican sombrero and pretending to be drinking tequila.

The banner across the bottom of the screen proclaimed “Mexican Heritage Celebration.”

So, a sombrero-wearing white guy pretending at being drunk was the way MSNBC decided to “celebrate” Cinco de Mayo? And no one wants to scream “rraaaaaacism” at that?

Liberals have nothing but hate in their souls… if they have souls, that is. This story is yet one more example of this truism. Take for proof a Tweet on the official MSNBC Twitter account that claimed that conservatives will hate the new Cheerios Super Bowl ad because it features a bi-racial family.

Here is a screen shot of the Tweet:

A screen shot was necessary because MSNBC deleted the Tweet later in the evening. A Tweet explaining the deletion said, “We are deleting the earlier offensive tweet. It does not reflect msnbc’s position and we apologize.”

Yeah, Riiiight. Sure it doesn’t.

‘Shark Tank’ Repeats Get More Ratings Than All of CNN’s Programming

Despite the much ballyhooed tinkering by chief Jeff Zucker to halt CNN’s ratings decline, the cable news network racked up its third-lowest month on record for January. Things were so bad that even repeats of the reality show Shark Tank airing on CNBC beat CNN in the ratings.

This January, on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, the nation’s oldest financial cable news network, began airing repeats of the ABC reality show Shark Tank, where applicants vie for funding from a panel of venture capitalists. CNBC’s reruns topped every show on CNN as well as every show but The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.

The reruns of the reality/game show came in at number 6 in the ratings race behind four Fox News shows, The O’Reilly Factor, The Five, The Kelly File and Special Report With Bret Baier, with Maddow’s show on MSNBC coming it at fifth place. But Shark Tank swamped every single CNN show on the schedule.

Politico Reporter Picks Up ‘Bridge-ghazi’ Term

In order to appeal to an extremist MSNBC audience, Politico’s Glenn Thrush shamelessly pumped up the partisanship by giving Governor Chris Christie’s bridge lane closing controversy a “funny” name: “bridge-ghazi.”

During a discussion of Christie’s troubles on the January 13 Alex Wagner show, Thrush jumped in mirthfully using the term “bridge-ghazi,” much to Wagner’s amusement.

It should be remembered that the terrorist attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, Libya resulted in the deaths of four Americans, one of whom was Chris Stevens, our ambassador to Libya. To add “ghazi” to the far more trivial bridge controversy makes a mockery of their deaths.

Remember, leftists such as those on cable “news” network MSNBC, are more loving and tolerant than you jerky conservatives. So, that is why the talking heads on MSNBC thought it would be fun to ridicule Mitt Romney for having an adopted grandson who is black. Because: tolerance.

On Sunday, December 29, extremist, hate-filled liberal Melissa Harris-Perry tok a few minutes with her panel of ignoramuses to talk about the most recent family photo of Mitt and Ann Romney and all their grandchildren.

There on Mitt’s knee, Harris-Perry informed us, was a little black child and she and her panel exploded in an amazing round of thinly veiled hatred over the adoption.

“Everybody loves a baby picture,” Harris-Perry belched out, “and this was one that really, a lot of people had emotions about this baby picture this year. This is the Romney family. And, of course, there on Governor Romney’s knee is his adopted grandson, who is an African-American, adopted African-American child, Kieran Romney.”

Ever the wild-eyed, anti-American, leftist ranters, MSNBC is now saying that the Robertson family of TV’s Duck Dynasty are little else but part of that sheet-wearing, white supremacist culture.

Today, of course, we found out that A&E has relented and reinstated Phil Robertson to his Duck Dynasty TV show, but earlier in the day MSNBC’s Michael Eric Dyson said that the Robertson family is just “part of a majority white supremacist culture.”

What isn’t “racism” to these people?

So, I suppose the Bible is just a racist screed, now? After all, that is what Phil Robertson was paraphrasing with his comments to GQ. If so, Michael Eric Dyson, why do so many African Americans believe in the Bible and go to churches that base their teaching on that ancient book?

Anyway, here is what Dyson said…

Republican consultant Ron Christie and Leftist goon Angela Rye.

MSNBC had another one of those now prosaic racebaiting panels on its second rate show hosted by blatant racist Melissa Harris-Perry where panelists sit around claiming everyone but they are racists. But this time another panelist slammed it right back in their face.

Angela Rye, the former Executive Director and General Counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus, amusingly insisted that the GOP is “racist.” Now, let’s remember what the Black Congressional Caucus is. It is a race-based (meaning racist) organization that famously refused to allow a white man to join. And this ignorant whelp has the gall to say that other people are racists?

Anyway, on the show this liar claimed that all Republicans are racists, that all tea partiers are racists, and also spouted the lie that white tea partiers spat upon Representative John Lewis in 2010 as he and several Democrats were walking into Congress.

After these lies, another panelist, Republican strategist Ron Christie–also an African American–rightfully blasted this lying racist for her calumnies.

Smith called Brown’s comments “inappropriate” and went on to say:

MSNBC Guest Says Obama Administration Most Hostile to the Press in US History

When you’re a liberal and you’ve lost the talking heads on MSNBC, you know you’re in trouble and here we see left-wing Barack Obama being called the worst President in US history for his antagonistic attitude about freedom of the press.

MSNBC invited former CNN reporter Bob Franken onto the November 30 broadcast of MSNBC Live to talk about the Obama administration, but he wasn’t as complimentary as most MSNBCers are. Franken disparaged the administration as indulging in propaganda because they continue to use their own photographers and their own “writers” in certain instances, eschewing the real press and denying them access.

In fact, Franken said that this administration has been bad for freedom of the press and the most “hostile” to the media in US history.

“The reason I say most hostile is because of the Justice Department moves that they’ve made against the press,” Franken said. “Obviously, they have a contempt for the journalistic process.”

Even Lefty Howard Dean Thinks Obama Has No Authority to Fix Obamacare

Today Barack Obama claimed that he was going to “fix” Obamacare by making insurance companies continue to offer those polices belonging to millions of Americans that have been cancelled because of Obamacare. But does he have the legal ability to do this?

On Thursday morning Obama held a press conference again apologizing for the mess that has been the Obamacare rollout and for his four-year-long lie that we could keep our insurance “if we like it.”

So, Obama made the proclamation that instead of losing our insurance, we can keep it for another year. How generous of him, eh?

This is something one-time candidate for the Democrat nomination for President, Howard Dean, thinks that Obama probably cannot do.

“I wonder if he has the legal authority to do this, since this was a congressional bill that set this up,” Dean said on MSNBC after the President’s address.

Already authorities from Washington State have said that they cannot allow the President to reverse his destruction of millions of insurance policies and simply reinstate them just on his say so.

GOP’s Huelskamp Schools Al Sharpton: If Obamacare is so Great How Come Congress is Exempting Itself?

President Obama and his comrades on the American left continue daily to say how great Obamacare is. But Republican Representative Tim Huelskamp of Kansas has a simple question. If it’s so great why did Obama give Congress an exemption?

Rep. Huelskamp was on MSNBC on Sept. 26 with host Al Sharpton ostensibly to talk about the abuse of food stamps, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Sharpton ran straight toward the typical, left-wing attack that Huelskamp wanted to starve kids and kill old people. But Huelskamp calmly informed the wild-eyed, MSNBC host that the idea was to wean able-bodied people off the system so that they can go get jobs and be productive members of society instead of leeches…. OK, I said “leeches,” Huelskamp didn’t.

His reforms, the Congressman said, “won’t take a single calorie off the plates of kids.”

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on August 16, Roberts mentioned that the two GOP chiefs congratulated him on his impending marriage.

“Reince Priebus, when I got engaged, congratulated me at the White House Correspondents’ weekend,” Roberts said. “Last year, Sean Spicer congratulated me on getting married to my husband. Yet they incorporate into the platform of the RNC their stance against marriage equality.”

Roberts found these well wishes “odd.”

CNN & NBC’s Close Ties to Obama, Anita Dunn, Bob Bauer and IRS Intimidation

-By Warner Todd Huston

The ongoing revelations of the intimidation of conservatives executed by Obama’s IRS and FEC agencies are still coming to light but an interesting wrinkle to the story is the close relationship between CNN and NBC/MSNBC and those inside the administration perpetrating that intimidation.

NBC/MSNBC had recently hired former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn as an on-air analyst to comment on what is going on in Washington today. CNN has also featured Dunn as a panelist from time to time. Both did so ostensibly because Dunn is one of those most involved in the Washington scene and is a major player as a K Street lobbyist.

Dunn is a key operative at the well connected SKD Knickerbocker, a DC-based campaign communications group, and is also intimately connected to many other firms and lobbying efforts.

In fact, Dunn raised eyebrows during the 2012 presidential election when it was discovered how integral she was as a consultant for firms lobbying the administration even as President Obama was then claiming, as he has claimed for years, that he was eliminating lobbyists in his administration and “changing business as usual” in DC.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, once a fairly conservative Republican, is railing against the plan for defunding Obamacare being pushed by Republicans like Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, calling the plan “stupidity,” and saying that conservatives are “too angry” to “win elections.”

On his little watched MSNBC show, Scarborough beat up on Republicans for wanting to “shut down the government.” Of course, this is the left wing’s misconstruction of what Cruz and Lee are saying. There is no “shut down” being proposed, exactly. And it is no surprise that Scarborough is touting the left-wing line since he sold his soul to the left to be on the extremist, left-wing MSNBC network.

In fact, Cruz himself has said shutting down government won’t stop Obamacare, so it is absurd for Scarborough and his left wing comrades to make that leap.

The idea is to pass a budget that funds all of government except Obamacare. That isn’t “shutting down government.”

A new poll on newspapers and television news shows that Americans’ confidence in the news industry continues to erode in this era of mass communications, reaching a low not seen since 2007.

The Gallup polling firm finds that trust in newspapers has fallen to 23 percent. This is down from 25 percent in 2012 and 28 percent in 2011.

The previous low was recorded in 2007 when trust in newspapers reached 22 percent.

Trust in newspapers has undergone steady erosion since its 1979 high of 51 percent, Gallup reports.

Television news fares no better in the estimation of those polled by Gallup. Trust in TV news tied that of newspapers with 23 percent saying they trust TV news sources. This is down from a 1993 high of 46 percent–when Gallup first began asking about it.

Pelley told Deadline Hollywood that Fox might have perhaps as few as “200,000 viewers.”

Deadline asked Pelley what he thought of the cable news outlets that cater to “just one segment of the political spectrum in their reporting.”

“Certainly. It’s no surprise,” Pelley replied. “Fox is associated with the right and MSNBC is associated with the left and they’ve done that because it is a business model. It’s a strategy. They’ve decided to bite off one small part of the viewership and be happy with that 200,000 viewers, 300,000 viewers that they have.”

MSNBC’s Morning Joe host, Joe Scarborough, is nearly apoplectic over the recent IRS admission that it used the power of its office to intimidate conservative groups throughout Obama’s presidency. Not necessarily because the IRS was acting so poorly, but because the scandal hurts his anti-gun argument.

During the recent debate over gun control in the Senate, Scarborough was a big booster of the Toomey/Manchin gun bill.

One of the arguments against the two Senators’ bill was that expanded background checks would likely lead to an un-Constitutional gun registry. Opponents maintained that the government wasn’t trustworthy enough not to misuse the information that would be gleaned from universal background checks.

In April Scarborough called anyone that opposed his support of the Toomey/Manchin bill an “extremist.”

This week, after the current IRS scandal hit the news, Scarborough is changing his tune albeit if only slightly.

So, much for unbiased, just-the-facts, journalism over at MSNBC. The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell was so star struck when Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren came on his show that he stopped everything in order to get her autograph and did so on the air!

Like a kid meeting his favorite teen rock star, O’Donnell shoved a copy of Warren’s “first bill” across the table slobberingly saying, “if I could just get your autograph on my copy of the first Warren bill… this is very exciting.”

O’Donnell even promised to frame the Xerox copy of the bill as if the “first Warren bill” is a keepsake for the ages.

Not much sycophancy there, eh?

Let’s state the obvious, shall we? Anyone that acts like a love-struck teenaged girl over a mere politician (like MSNBC’s O’Donnell did here) does not belong reporting about them as if they are real reporters.

Toure offered the rather startling suggestion during MSNBC’s The Cycle on May 6.

The Cycle co-host began his segment informing viewers that he is now “embracing the open borders movement” going on to note that “We already have open borders for large corporations.”

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Calls NRA/Beck ‘Nazis,’ Then Accuses Right of Calling People Nazis

During a panel discussion on his May 6 broadcast of Hardball, MSNBC talking head Chris Matthews called Glenn Beck and the NRA “Hitlerian” for their arguments against Obama’s gun-ban plans but only minutes later scolded those same folks for calling people Nazis.

In a discussion of Glenn Beck’s address given on May 4 to members of the National Rifle Association at their convention in Houston, Texas, Matthews said the rhetoric employed there against the gun grabbers on the left was “Hitlerian.”

“This whole idea of righteous indignation, first of all, it’s Hitlerian, generally speaking, demagoguery,” Matthews blurted out. “It’s always about righteous indignation. All great demagogic speakers talk about how they’re coming to get us. That’s how you get people excited.”

Shortly thereafter, Matthews played a few minutes of Glenn Beck’s speech to the attendees of the NRA convention.

Beck said that the “freedom of all mankind is at stake.” He went on to lament that many of his New York friends were all too quick to acquiesce to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s nanny state-like bans on soda, salt, transfats and other things. Beck then showed on the wall screen a satirical new tourism slogan for Bloomberg’s city. In a take off on the old New York slogan “I Love New York,” Beck put an image on the screen that showed Michael Bloomberg in a communist-like pose then satirically intoned that the new slogan should be “You WILL love New York.”

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.”
