Finally a Lib ‘Journalist’ With Guts to Say He Wants Conservatives Banned from TV

We already know that the fascist, authoritarian left wants to ban anyone and anything they don’t agree with. But usually they have the good sense not to say so out loud for fear that people will realize they are fascist authoritarians. But one “journalist” finally admitted the truth.

Left-winger Ed Kilgore, who blogs for Washington Monthly magazine, made to comment on the new ideas that NBC has for revamping Meet The Press when Chuck Todd takes over the venerable Sunday political show (Todd himself is an old Democrat operative, by the way).

In his August 25 post entitled, “Who Should Be Banned as Panelists For the New ‘Meet?’,” Kilgore notes that NBC president Deborah Turness is saying that she wants to have a panel of journalists question each guest as a sort of “coffeehouse conversation.”

‘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”).

Media Giddy Over Chelsea Clinton Extending Dynasty With Baby Announcement

On Thursday, April 17, Chelsea Clinton said that she and husband of four years, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, have a blessed event to announce as the couple is now expecting their first child. But the Old Media may be more excited than Chelsea that the Clinton dynasty is growing.

One of the earliest to bubble over with excitement seemed to be a screaming, all caps Tweet pushed out by CNN’s Candy Crowley.

Oddly, Crowley coupled Chelsea’s announcement with Obama’s wonderful Obamacare news, saying, “AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME-TWO ANNOUNCEMENTS: POTUS SAYS 8 MILLION ENROLLED IN ACA, AND CHELSEA CLINTON SAYS SHE’S PREGNANT.”

Even some of Crowley’s fans wondered why she was yelling at them with the all caps post that breaks netiquette standards.

Politico’s Crap About a ‘Career Path’ for Dissenting Journalists

-By Warner Todd Huston

Politico just published one of those articles that always drives me crazy where the media takes one or two examples of something and then tries to turn that into some sort of massive wave where in truth it is no such thing. This time Politico is saying that because three people left mainstream journalism to become media critics, that must mean there is a “career path” for disaffected journalists to fame and success.

The Politico story titled, “Media career path: Cry ‘media bias’,” is written by Dylan Byers and is loosely formed around the departure from CBS of excellent investigate journalist Sharyl Attkisson. Then the article segues to Bernard Goldberg and John Stossel both of who left big three network jobs to become Fox News analysts who often criticize the media.

The premise of the story is presented in the third paragraph:

Here is How Many Times Did Jay Leno Slam Clinton, Bush or Obama

February 6, 2014 | Filed Under Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, Entertainment, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Media, NBC, President, TV, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

With Jay Leno ending his 22-year stint as host of NBC’s Tonight Show this week, The Center for Media and Public Affairs took the time to add up how many times he made fun of Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama and found that Clinton came in as the most ribbed Prez.

Bill Clinton rang in with 4,607 Tonight Show jokes making him the most joked about President. This might only make sense as Clinton was always there to make fun of since the first day Leno took over the show. While both Bush and Obama were around less time to serve as targets.

Maybe unsurprisingly, the next most slammed president was George W. Bush at 3,239 jokes. Next came Al Gore at 1,026 pokes with Obama coming in at 1,011. Hillary Clinton brought up fifth place with 939 jokes.

SNL’s ‘Black As Hell’ Santa Slams Fox News’ Megyn Kelly

Last week Fox News’s Megyn Kelly told her audience that Santa was a white guy and people should just get over it. By Saturday, NBC’s SNL had a message for America from “Santa Klaus”: “You’ve heard of secret Santa, well here’s a secret: I’m black as hell.”

During SNL’s Weekend Update segment, troupe member Kenan Thompson starred as a black Santa Klaus that riffed on some well-worn and prosaic themes. But even with the same ‘ol, same ‘ol racism topics, the segment did have a few funny lines.

When Weekend Update’s faux anchor Cecily Strong asked Thompson’s “Santa” if he was OK with people thinking that he was really white, Thompson said, “Well, a white guys taking credit for something a black guy did? I’m more used to it than okay with it.”

SNL’s Hilarious Slam: Obama Anti-Depressant Pill Ad

Saturday Night Live is pretty late to the game of ridiculing President Obama, to be sure, but this anti-depressant drug spoof slamming Obama is pretty well done.

In the skit we see a depressed President Obama in black and white moping around the White House beset by second term blues.

Hilariously, early in the ad the voice over says, “It feels like even your friends have turned against you.” That is followed by video of Bill Clinton (the real one, not an SNL actor) slamming Obama for lying about Americans being able to keep their health insurance and doctors if they like them.

The ad introduced “Paxil,” a drug that will help Obama forget all about Benghazi, the IRS scandal, NSA spying on Americans, the AP scandal, Obamacare, and more (like he needs help forgetting those, he perpetually forgets about his scandals).

Obama Apologizes For Lying for the Last Four Years About Obamacare

President Obama has been lying to America for four years about his take over of our national healthcare system. Now he’s finally admitting he lied. But, naturally, it’s all someone else’s fault.

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Obama went on NBC News to issue one of those typical non-apology apologies. Saying he was “sorry” that Americans found themselves “in this situation”–as if he had nothing to do with it.

On November 7, Obama appeared on NBC News with Chuck Todd to deliver his half-hearted mea culpa.

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” Obama said in NBC’s exclusive interview at the White House.

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”

See, America? He’s sorry people found themselves in this situation. You know. The one he created.

Jay Leno Slams Obama’s Feckless Syria Policy

September 12, 2013 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Humor, Liberals, NBC, President, Progressives, Syria, TV, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jay Leno has been hitting Obama more and more as he winds down his hosting of NBC’s The Tonight Show, and on the day Obama delivered his speech on Syria, Leno smacked the President on that very issue.

Leno let loose a cascade of jokes showing how foolish and feckless Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the suddenly invisible VP Joe Biden has been on Syria, even working in a new “birther” joke into the mix.

Leno began by turning a remark on the weather into a slam on Obama’s Syria policy. “You can tell fall is coming to the east,” Leno said. “The leaves are changing faster than the White House position on Syria. It’s unbelievable.”

Then Leno slammed Secretary of State John Kerry joking that he “has given Syria one week to hand over its chemical weapons. And if they don’t, he’ll give them another week. So that’s kind of where we are right now.”

Leno wrapped up his series of Syria jokes with two more saying that one good thing has come out of Syria: Joe Biden has stopped talking. And then said that foreign countries are not so happy with Obama these days. In fact…

“President Obama’s foreign policy is taking a beating, especially abroad,” Leno jabbed. “They’re not as excited about him as they used to be. In fact, people in Kenya are saying, ‘We’re positive he wasn’t born here.”

It is interesting to see Jay Leno slamming the President more every night, isn’t it?

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

August 10, 2013 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Cable, CBS, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Ethics, Government, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, MSNBC, NBC, Progressives, TV, Warner Todd Huston | 2 Comments

-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.

Zimmerman’s Lawyer Going After NBC News ‘ASAP’

Now that the trial to determine whether or not he was guilty of a malicious murder is over, George Zimmerman’s lawyers are stepping up their lawsuit against NBC News for airing edited audio that allegedly made their client look like a racist.

Last December, Zimmerman filed the lawsuit against NBC for airing what many outlets described as deceptively edited audio on the March 27 broadcast of the Today show.

On the morning show, NBC spliced together two lines spoken by Zimmerman as he talked to a 911 operator to report Trayvon Martin as a suspicious character wandering his neighborhood.

On the NBC version of the call, Zimmerman is heard to say: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

NBC’s Deceptive Editing Makes Rabbi Appear to be Covering Up Sex Abuse

In a June 24 report for NBC’s Rock Center, video for a story was deceptively edited and misleading voice overs added to quotes from an Hasidic Rabbi that made it seem as if the Rabbi was insisting that allegations of sex abuse should only be handled internally, within the community, and should not be taken to police. But in fact Rabbi Avraham Berkowitz did not say that at all.

After a series of emails from Rabbi Berkowitz complaining of the deceptive edits the web entry of the Rock Center story has an update and the video was pulled, but even that update does not really address the extremely unfair treatment that Berkowitz received at the hands of NBC’s editors

The story was ostensibly to have been an “inside look” at the Hasidic community in New York and in a segment near the end of the report the piece turned to recent sex abuse charges leveled at Nechamya Weberman, a once respected member of the community who acted as a “therapist” for the other members of his community.

Networks Do 92 New Global Warming Stories, Don’t Mention Lull in Temp Trends Once

The news departments at the Big Three TV networks have done 92 new stories on the global warming debate recently, but, curiously, not one of those stories informed viewers that there has been decade-long lull in rising temperatures.

A new Media Research Center review of network news coverage shows that ABC, CBS, and NBC have each completely ignored the 10-year “mystery plateau” in global temperatures in favor of alarmism about rising sea levels, allergies, and extreme weather.

The MRC review found that no network climate change story thus far for 2013 has reported the slowdown in global warming. It also discovered that “experts” that promote alarmism were quoted or featured in network coverage eight times as often as those critical of global warming. It also found that links between extreme weather and global warming were made nearly one-fourth of the time despite that scientists disagree with that notion.

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.

In a recent interview, CBS Evening News host Scott Pelley said that he thinks that Fox News really doesn’t have very many viewers–underestimating the network’s actual ratings by about 90 percent.

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.”

Big Three Networks Have Stopped Reporting on IRS Scandal

Apparently the Big Three TV networks have decided that the IRS intimidation scandal is over and it seems that reporting on the issue has disappeared from the airwaves.

When the story first broke after IRS official Lois Lerner admitted that the taxing agency had unfairly targeted conservatives and Tea Party groups seeking a tax status, the Big Three jumped into the story with both feet. But now, only a month later, coverage of the matter has slowed to a trickle.

A new review by the Media Research Center of the first month of coverage of the IRS scandal shows that three quarters of the stories hit in the first two weeks after the news broke.

MRC analysts reviewed each of the morning and evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC from May 10 through June 12 (ABC’s World News, Good Morning America, CBS’s Evening News and This Morning, and NBC’s Nightly News and Today show), and found 127 full stories, interviews or anchor briefs that focused on the IRS scandal. Analysts determined that 76 percent of the IRS stories were aired within the first two weeks, while 24 percent of the stories arrived in the latter period, a huge drop-off.

MRC found that CBS hit the story the most (49 stories), while NBC came in second (at 44), with ABC brining up the tail (with 34).

Finally, during the week of June 10, only one mention of the scandal was heard anywhere on network TV.

Obama and his flapping-mouthed flacks keep saying with each new scandal that President Obama had “no knowledge” of any of these scandals. They claim that others are responsible and he is innocent.

He didn’t know about Benghazi, he didn’t know about the IRS’ attacks on Tea Party groups, he didn’t know of the DOJ’s violation of freedom of the press, he didn’t know… well, apparently he didn’t know of anything.

Brian Williams’ “Rock Center’ Being Canceled

-By Warner Todd Huston

Due to low ratings, NBC has canceled Rock Center, the evening news program hosted by anchor Brian Williams. The program has only been on the air just over a year.

When the show debuted in October of 2011, it was scheduled for Monday evenings. But ratings never gave the show enough of an anchor to allow it to keep a home for long. Within months it was moved to Wednesday and then to Thursday.

Last year, NBC renewed Rock Center despite its low ratings. In May of 2012 the L.A. Time reported that the show was renewed “despite a dismal ratings performance in its freshman season.”

At the time of last year’s renewal, some network insiders claimed they had so much faith in Rock Center that the move to Thursdays at 10PM was actually a promotion of sorts. But that “faith” seems to have extended the life of the program only a year.

In a memo, NBC Universal News Group chairman Patricia Fili-Krushel praised the staff of the show. “While we’re disappointed with the news, we are very proud of the hard work that the Rock Center team put into the program each week,” she said.

Network TV Still Ignoring Gosnell

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been on trial in Pennsylvania for seven weeks accused of murdering patients and killing babies born alive in a filthy clinic staffed by untrained, unlicensed assistants, but the trial has barely made a blip on big three network news programs.

The trial has been shocking, to say the least, but the networks have still ignored it. But the networks are obviously not trying to shield viewers from shocking trials. A recent review of network programming by the Media Research Center reveals that not all shocking trials are equal in the network’s eyes as they’ve covered dozens of them over the last 42 days.

MRC has found that hundreds of minutes of airtime have been dedicated to the Amanda Knox trial in Spain and the Arizona-based trial of Jodi Arias who is accused of the brutal murder of her boy friend Travis Alexander.

While practically ignoring the Gosnell trial, MRC found that ABC’s Good Morning America has visited the Arias trail 22 times in the last seven weeks alone. Along with the Arias trial, GMA has hit several other sensational trials amounting to 41 separate stories since the Gosnell trial started.

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.

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.”

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.

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

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.

Chuck Todd presented an odd premise on last Sunday’s Meet the Press. Since the issue of gay marriage is now before the Supreme Court of the United States, Todd wondered if this meant that the economy is back on track because people’s attention has drifted from the economy to gay marriage?

During the March 31 broadcast, Todd noted that we are suddenly beset by a major debate on gay marriage and abortion. The NBC newser then pointed out that in the past the “big polarizing issues of the last two generations” have benefited Republicans.

Panelist Peggy Noonan of the Wall Street Journal didn’t really think that we were exactly seeing any new focus on social issues because these fights have been going on for half a century. It was just part and parcel to our political climate, she pointed out.

The next episode of NBC’s Law & Order: SVU will feature another story “ripped from the headlines.” This time, the show that mines controversy will tackle “legitimate rape” ala former Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin.

The promo for the episode clearly gives the gist of the show.

A woman (The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan) is raped by a co-worker (David Marciano, Homeland) but she decides to keep the child. The episode features the rapist being tried for the crime. An “expert” witness is then seen uttering the Akinesque line.

The voice over says: “Ripped from the headlines. Words that set off a national controversy.”

A character sitting in the witness box then says, “It’s nearly impossible for a victim of legitimate rape to become pregnant.” This is followed by looks of disgust by the two female lead detective characters sitting in the courtroom gallery.

Clearly the jury accepts the expert’s testimony hence all the grimacing by the show’s stars,

Leno was off the show for six months between 2009 to 2010 when Conan O’Brien briefly hosted the Tonight Show, but as the news breaks that he’s to be replaced, this time by Fallon, some news outlets are calling Leno the “conservative’s” TV host.

Today at 11:45 AM, Fox Newser John Scott of Happening Now read my story posted to Breitbart’s BigHollywood.com. My piece was headlined, “Despite Wide Appeal to Middle America, Jay Leno Out at ‘Tonight’.”


NBC Was Disappointed That Asian Cardinal Was ‘No Reformer’

Catching up on how the media treated the days before Pope Francis became the new leader of the Catholic Church, as the Vatican hosted its conclave, NBC looked into the work of Asian Cardinal Luis Antonio “Chito” Tagle–a possiblePapal candidate–and came to the sad conclusion that he was just as traditional as any other cardinal. As NBC ruefully noted, Tagle is “no reformer.”

NBC started out on a hopeful note: “On the face of it Philippine Cardinal Luis Antonio ‘Chito’ Tagle has a lot going for him as a contender for pope. He’s young: At 55, the second youngest of the cardinals. He sings and preaches on television, and has 120,000 followers on Facebook.”

He was hip, young, and he’s into technology. And apparently, simply because he’s Asian, NBC wondered if he would toe a liberal line and be one who would institute “social reform” if he became Pope.

But NBC went on to note that Cardinal Tagle is as staunchly against contraceptives as any other traditional cardinal, a stance that is a chief tenet of the Church.

NBC Suits Criticize Jay Leno for Late Night Jokes

-By Warner Todd Huston

Host of the The Tonight Show, Jay Leno, has come under fire from NBC executives for making jokes about the network’s recent slide in the ratings during his monologues.

Reports suggest that Robert Greenblat, Chairman of Entertainment, fired off a series of emails slamming the late night comedian for daring to lampoon the ratings slide. Leno gave back as good as he got, insiders say, and bristled against the PC, company line criticism.

What offended Greenblat? On February 28, for instance, Leno kicked off his NBC ratings segment saying, “For the first time in history NBC is going to finish fifth in the ratings period. We are behind the Spanish-language network Univision — or as we call it here in Los Angeles: Cinco de Ratings.”

He went on to joke that, “It’s so bad, ‘The Biggest Loser’ isn’t just a TV show anymore; it’s our new motto.” And: “It’s so bad, NBC called Manti Te’o and asked him to bring in some imaginary viewers.”
