-By Warner Todd Huston

Without a doubt Obama’s government is constantly whipping up hatred for anyone who disagrees with the liberal line. So, at 10PM Eastern on Saturday, April 5, Fox is airing FOX News Reporting: Enemies of the State to expound on this anti-free speech crusade being perpetrated by people and entities ranging from President Obama, Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, to the NSA and the IRS and others on the left-wing of the American political sphere.

The one-hour special will be hosted by FNC’s Jon Scott and will focus on Americans who have found themselves in the crosshairs of their own government. During the program, Scott will be joined by FNC senior national correspondent John Roberts and co-anchor of America’s News HQ Greg Jarrett to investigate four issues where private citizens found themselves in battles against the government.

Maria Bartiromo Returns to CNBC… in an Ad for Fox Business Network

-By Warner Todd Huston

In my writing about media, I have been fascinated in the rise of Fox Business Network in the financial reporting game. Recently I noted that FBN snagged star business reporter Maria Bartiromo from CNBC, but amusingly she just went back on CNBC… in an ad for Fox Business!

FBN purchased a series of ads from the New York Market served by Time Warner Cable and began running them on CNBC touting the wonderfulness of Maria’s FBN show, Opening Bell with Maria Batriromo.

“Come on over,” Bartiromo urges during her advert.

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:

Obama’s Newest Assault on Free Speech: The So-Called ‘Free Flow of Information Act’

March 28, 2014 | Filed Under 1st Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Bill of Rights, Communism, Congress, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Free Speech, Freedom, Government, Government Corruption, House of Representatives, Journalism, Liberals, Liberty, Media, Media Bias, Nanny State, President, Progressives, Regulation, Rights, Senate, Socialism, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obama’s newest attack on free political speech protects neither journalists nor does it assure any “free flow of information.”

In addition to the IRS targeting conservative groups, individuals and their families–and now proposing rules to silence them during elections–and the new FCC plan to police the press by placing so-called “researchers” in newsrooms across the country, the Obama administration is pushing Congress to pass legislation that threatens the First Amendment rights of citizen journalists, grassroots activists, and bloggers by creating a federal government media licensing regime.

The “Free Flow of Information Act of 2013” (S. 987) would allow the federal government to determine who is and who is not a “journalist” and to grant special privileges to only the institutional and paid media.

By giving special legal protections to the journalistic-elite who meet the federal government’s definition of “legitimate” media, the bill would create the very type of government media licensing system that the Founding Fathers intended to prohibit with the First Amendment.

When Fox Business Network (FBN) snagged top CNBC reporter Maria Bartiromo for its own late last year, there was talk about giving her a Sunday morning business news show along with her other FBN duties. Now Fox News is announcing the debut of that new show.

The show is titled Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo and will air beginning on the last Sunday of March at 9AM Central Standard Time on your cable’s Fox News station.

“Anchored by leading business journalist Maria Bartiromo,” the announcement says, “the show will focus on the intersection of commerce and news events, offering viewers in-depth analysis on recent developments in the economy. Each week, Bartiromo will interview business leaders and industry newsmakers on topics such as job creation and investment opportunities, providing viewers with an inside look at how to prepare financially for the future.”

‘NY Daily News’ Article Calls Gun Owner ‘Gun Nut,’ Misidentifies Guns

March 25, 2014 | Filed Under 2nd Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Gun Control, Guns, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, New York, Newspapers, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

To show the utter, abject bias against the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights in the “news,” one need only turn to the New York Daily News to see a prime example. In a recent “news” story on a gun give-away, the paper called the winner a “gun nut,” and misidentified the rifle given away as an “assault weapon.”

A church in upstate New York made news by hosting a give-away program for an AR-15-styled rifle made by Smith & Wesson. The entrants for the raffle had to sit through the pastor’s sermon. The winner also had to pass a background check at a local gun store and wait the requisite period to take possession of the rifle.

In “reporting” the story, though, the paper filled its piece with misleading terminology and name calling to prove its disdain for the Church’s give-away as well as its contempt for the Constitution and the Second Amendment not to mention the winner of the rifle.

By nearly every metric, Democrats are finding that Obamacare is a millstone around their necks for the upcoming 2014 midterm elections. Yet so-called Republican Karl Rove is telling the GOP to stop attacking Obamacare? What is he thinking?

Yet, even as Rove says Republicans shouldn’t Attack Obamacare, elections statistician Larry Sabato Says Obamacare is killing Democrats. What is Karl Rove thinking by telling Republicans not to attack Obamacare very hard while Larry Sabato is saying the Dems are extremely vulnerable on Obamacare?

Obama Press Secretary’s Fake ‘Briefings’

March 20, 2014 | Filed Under 1st Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Censorship, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

It’s supposedly a long tradition. Reporters from the nation’s top news agencies gather together before the President’s Press Secretary and pepper him with questions on the issues of the day to get off the cuff answers so that we, the people, can take a measure of what the White House is doing. Only with Obama it’s all fake. Neither the questions nor the answers are “real.”

As it happens, a reporter from Arizona has revealed that all the questions and all the answers to those questions are hammered out between the “reporters” and Obama’s Press Sec. Jay Carney before any of them ever enter the White House briefing room.

It’s all a sham, a show, a false front as these so-called “reporters” bow to demands that their questions be submitted before the press “conference” and approved ahead of time.

According to the Arizona reporter, Jay Carney himself admitted the truth in an accidentally candid moment.

The Most ‘Transparent’ President in History Has More Secrecy Than Ever

March 17, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Censorship, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Regulation, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again we see an example of the essential falsehood upon which the Obama administration was built. When Obama ran for the White House and then won he did so claiming that his would be an open presidency unlike that evil, evil George Bush’s. But since he won it has become clear that Obama is actually more secretive than Bush was. Yet, liberals give him a pass on this major lie upon which he built his case for election.

During all six years of his presidency we’ve seen the truth come out. But this month we see yet another example. A new study finds that at an increasing rate every year Obama has been censoring government documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act or outright refusing to supply them quite despite his claims that he’d expedite the process and fulfill more requests.

The recent study shows that, “the government’s efforts to be more open about its activities last year were their worst since President Barack Obama took office.”

Despite Obama’s hoary claims that he was going to have the most open and ethical presidency ever, that he’d institute the strictest rules any president ever imposed on himself, reality has come knocking and revealed that the exact opposite has come to pass.

Among other things, the study found that, “five years after Obama directed agencies to less frequently invoke a ‘deliberative process’ exception to withhold materials describing decision-making behind the scenes, the government did it anyway, a record 81,752 times.”

It has all been one gigantic lie. And the liberals? They are paying no attention at all.

But this is only the latest example.

Chicago Sun-Times’ Carol Marin Indulges Her Inner Bigot

-By Warner Todd Huston

Looks like long-time Chicago investigative reporter Carol Marin really laid her hate for everyone right of center bare with her lie-filled attack on WLS radio personality and political operative Dan Proft last week.

Marin, a reporter with quite a reputation for factual columns, lambasted a mail ad that Proft’s political action group sent out that featured a “homophobic” slam on House member Ron Sandack.

Only there was a problem with Marin’s attack on Proft. The ad she was criticizing wasn’t sent by his PAC. It was sent by Illinois Family Action.

Marin slammed Proft as a gay basher, called him a homophobe, and attacked him in several ways interpreting all his mailers are anti-gay.

She proved to be one of those haters of conservatives and Republicans that reads “hate” into everything people right of center do. She proved to be shrill, blind to reality, and more interested in promulgating her own brand of hate than in the truth.

-By Warner Todd Huston

There always has to be one goofball out there hatin’ on our national holidays, doesn’t there? This time it is hate for Valentines Day and on the flimsiest, most ridiculous reasoning: it is an “environmental travesty.”

For the left-wing New Republic, columnist Jeffrey Ball was first out of the chute to slam Valentines Day with a Valentines Day eve piece uproariously entitled, “Valentine’s Day Is an Environmental Travesty The carbon costs of greeting cards.”

That’s right, if you buy a greeting card you are a destroyer of the planet. Talk about ridiculous hyperbole. In fact, with that logic, one can do nothing but live in a cave eating bugs and leaves in order to satisfy this green nazi.

The magazine also took to Twitter to scold anyone who falls for this evil, Earth destroying holiday saying, “If your other half bought you a Valentine’s card, be sure to say thanks for the 18.5 grams of CO2 it created.”

As tedious as his argument is, it is typical of the sort of Luddite nonsense we hear from the extremist greenies.

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

-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.

‘The View’s’ Goldberg Upset Over Conservative Fill-In Hosts

-By Warner Todd Huston

This week ABC’s morning gabfest The View has been featuring conservative women as fill-in hosts but liberal Whoopi Goldberg was not happy at all about the inclusion of the conservatives dismissing it as a mere sweeps week stunt.

On Monday, Dana Loesch sat on the panel and on Tuesday HotAir’s Mary Katharine Ham co-hosted but before the week began Goldberg was disgusted enough to Tweet that the whole thing was a stunt. She also warned that no one should get mad at her because she doesn’t schedule guests.

On February 2, lefty actress Elizabeth Perkins Tweeted to Goldberg that she was unhappy with the coming inclusion of conservative women.

“I’m very surprised by The View booking Dana Loesch,” Perkins Tweeted. “There is no compromise with her, no solution other than more guns. Sad.”

Goldberg Tweeted a reply agreeing with Perkins and then dismissed the idea of having conservative women on the show as just a ratings stunt.

“Yeah.. Me too,” Goldberg Tweeted. “but it’s sweeps apparently.. & they are going for ratings I’m sure.”

It should be noted that Goldberg Tweeted her disgust with having voices other than liberal ones on her show before the week began. As the week began, though, Goldberg seemed to get a bit tired of all the liberal complaints about the decision to have the two conservative women on the show.

By Tuesday, Goldberg Tweeted, “Hey you don’t like a guest on @theviewtv tell them NOT me cos I don’t book the show. HOWEVER it is called the View & u don’t have 2agree.”

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.”

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

-By Warner Todd Huston

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.

When a CNN Sports Dolt Tries to Explain Chicago’s Gun Problem With Laughable Results

-By Warner Todd Huston

CNN sports writer LZ Granderson tried to write a serious column about Chicago’s gun ban laws and only ended up making himself look foolish for the effort. This is what happens when sports dorks try to think on subjects outside their silly, inconsequential world of sports.

With his columns, “When a City’s Gun Laws Get Shot Down,” it seems that Granderson was trying desperately to make sense of the failure of Chicago’s gun ban to keep the city safe and it appears that he is supportive of taking away American’s Second Amendment rights merely by local government fiat. Yet even as he seemed to support gun bans, nearly every word he wrote proves that gun bans don’t work.

Sadly, after reading his mush of a column, it is almost impossible to figure out what they heck this guy’s point is supposed to be. but it does show that he is not capable of logically thinking through a problem and writing a cogent discussion of that issue.

Mike Huckabee did not say a single thing that was outrageous during his remarks to an RNC winter meeting on January 23. But that won’t stop the Old Media complex from lying about his comments and desperately trying to spin his comments as some sort of attack on women. It was, in fact, just the opposite.

Left-wing spin artists that pretend to be journalists, like CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Dana Bash, immediately launched into an attack on Huckabee as if he was disparaging women or attacking their rights–because, you know, Republicans hate women, and all.

Bash most especially immediately lied about Huckabee’s comments, mischaracterizing them so badly that one would think she didn’t actually hear the comments and is only regurgitating the lies spread by extremists that she picked up on the Internet.

It’s bad enough that “reporter” Bash followed the left-wing attack machine’s lie-filled narrative but it’s worse because she was actually in the audience and heard Huckabee first hand.

This so-called reporter jumped to her Twitter account and wrote the following: “At Rnc meeting @MikeHuckabee just said fed govt shouldn’t help women w who can’t control their libido w birth control.”

If you are like many folks, you’ll have missed the beginning of the controversy over comments about homosexuality made by Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson and you’ll have heard about it only after everyone started talking about it. So, you may have missed the meat of the matter by listening only to the commentators yammering about what Phil said. But if you want the whole story in one well written piece, check out David J. Theroux’s “Duck Dynasty and the Secular Theocracy” because it’ll give you the whole story from the beginning.

In a two part posting, Theroux, founder and president and CEO of The Independent Institute, did a fantastic job relaying what Robertson said and the reaction it fostered.

In part one Theroux details Robertson’s December interview in GQ magazine where he paraphrased a Bible-based list of sins one of which is the act of homosexuality. Then the author goes on to review the initial reaction to those comments.

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.

ABC’s late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel did an hilarious job slamming Obamacare and pointing out to young people that under Obamacare they are the ones stuck paying for the expensive healthcare needed by the elderly with a spoof “commercial” about the President’s disastrous healthcare policy (See video above).

You see, the way Obamacare is supposed to work is that millions of young people who are healthy and don’t need to use health insurance are supposed to buy it anyway so that the premium money they are paying into the system can be given to the elderly who need coverage now. It really is little else but a giant pyramid scheme.

The phrase “Obama lied, people died” should ring out from every corner of the country now that we know 100% for sure that Obama knew full well that no “anti-Muslim Youtube video” caused the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Obama knew as it was happening that it was a terror attack but lied to America anyway.

Fox News recently uncovered a stash of documents that proves beyond doubt that Obama and his advisers knew just after the attacks began that it was terrorism.

Fox News correspondent James Rosen reported on January 14 that 450 pages of sworn testimony by America’s highest ranking military officers makes the case clearly about what the administration knew and when it was known.

Most reviewers of the new Fox 1/2 hour Army sitcom, Enlisted, felt the show was affecting, even sweet. While that isn’t far off the mark, it is nonetheless a bit hard to feel that making fun of our armed forces is a good idea when so many of them are still facing combat overseas.

Enlisted starts off with super solder Sgt. Pete Hill (7th Heaven star Geoff Stults) who is forced to leave the front lines in Afghanistan because he punched a Colonel who refused to send him support during a fire fight.
