NBC Downplays Bill Clinton Sex Allegations With Family’s Talking Points

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 15:48
<p>With the national discussion centered on sexual harassment and sexual assault, many in the liberal media had been itching to get to the allegations directed at the President. The media seemed to have recently gotten the ‘okay’ to pursue the claims when Hillary Clinton brought them up in a radio interview. It’s hypocritical for Clinton to lead the charge because of her philanderer husband with a rape charge. But that wasn’t a problem for NBC’s <em>Sunday Today</em> who disregarded it using Clinton’s defense.</p>

Syrupy! Mediaite Puffs Chris Cuomo: He's Nonpartisan? And Fights Like Muhammad Ali?

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 13:58
<p>Is Mediaite owned by CNN? On Friday, the website posted an interview with CNN morning anchor Chris Cuomo that sounded like an in-house CNN newsletter. Or maybe Joe DePaolo was measurably gushier than a CNN press release. The headline was "Mediaite Profile: CNN New Day’s Chris Cuomo is a Fighter." They compared Cuomo to Muhammad Ali in his interviewing skills, and bizarrely insisted he's not a partisan. DePaolo never got around to asking if perhaps viewers could suspect he's a Democrat, since his father and brother have been liberal-Democrat governors of New York. </p>

ESPN's Scott Van Pelt Insults Millions Who No Longer Watch It

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 12:31
<p>In a <em>Sports Illustrated</em> "Off the Board" podcast released on Thursday, ESPN's Scott Van Pelt took several cheap shots at the network's critics, in the process demonstrating how horribly out of touch he is with financial realities at his the network. Van Pelt aimed particular venom at those who have decided that they didn't need to have cable TV any more when ESPN selected Caitlyn-formerly-Bruce Jenner as its 2015 annual Arthur Ashe Courage Award winner, calling them "so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope."</p>

David Brooks on PBS: Roy Moore's Christian Backers Guilty of 'Heresy' and 'Idolatry'

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:19
<p>They began the week-in-review segment on Friday’s PBS NewsHour with the Al Franken groping scandal, and both liberal Mark Shields and pseudoconservative David Brooks felt that Franken’s offense was minor compared to the Roy Moores and Bill Clintons…and Donald Trumps. Brooks repeated his recent line that Clinton’s impunity in these matters in the 1990s created a hostile environment for all women – and then added a new spin for “balance.” Christian defenders of Roy Moore at this point are practicing “idolatry" and are simply “heretics.”</p>

Not News: Blacks Commit Growing Share of Reported 'Hate Crimes'

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:10
<p>The Federal Bureau of Investigation published its annual hate crime statistics earlier this week. The press has dutifully fallen into line with the predictable narrative that the 5 percent reported in hate crimes in 2016 occurred because of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The numbers tell a different story.</p>

Franken's 'Funny' Photo Could Have Ruined Him In 2008 Senate Race

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 22:01
<p>Imagine if LeeAnn Tweeden’s picture of Al Franken groping her breasts for laughs while she slept on a 2006 military plane flight had come out during his 2008 Senate campaign. The election result was so disputed that Franken wasn’t seated in the Senate until July of 2009. Add that picture, and the Senate wouldn’t have an Al Franken harassment problem today.</p>

Vanity Fair's James Wolcott Compares Trump to Hefner and Hitler

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 18:56
<p>Comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, as many liberals have done, was so common early this year that it has already become quite passé. Yeah, that Trump-Hitler comparison is so early 2017. The new wacky comparison of choice in the latter part of 2017 now seems to be comparing Trump to the late <em>Playboy</em> publisher Hugh Hefner.</p>

CNN's 'New Day' Only Gives 1 Min to Murdered Cop, Spends 3 Min on Corrupt Cop

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 18:01
<p>Since word broke early Thursday morning that a black police officer in Baltimore was shot in the head and then died, CNN has conspicuously buried the story, in contrast with the liberal news network's history of giving attention to black suspects who are killed or roughed up by police officers. CNN's most prominent morning show, <em>New Day</em>, which runs between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. ET, has only run two briefs just barely totaling a minute so far. But on Saturday morning, <em>New Day Saturday</em> ran a full three-minute report on a corrupt police officer in Chicago who is causing the city to have to consider releasing some prisoners whom he might have framed.</p>

Here’s Ross talking to Trevor Noah about immigration on <em>The Daily Show</em>. Noah said the U.S. cannot have open borders despite liberals favoring amnesty-style policies. Ross didn’t appear to disagree.</p>

NYT Strikes Populist Pose vs. 'Gimmicky' GOP Tax Plan, Laments 'Death Tax' Label

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 15:56
<p>In Saturday’s <em>New York Times</em>, reporter Patricia Cohen took the most jaundiced view of the GOP tax-cutting plans with some liberal rhetoric about Republican attempts to pare down the estate tax, colloquially known as the death tax: “Only the Most Wealthy, Including Trump, Gain From Estate Tax’s Repeal.” More tough <em>Times </em>headlines: “Some See a Foundation Of Gimmickry in Tax Bill,” and“Party’s Priority: Comfort for Corporations.” The subhead: “Plan Pinches Families, Not Businesses.”</p>

Spike Lee in Time: 'Agent Orange' Trump 'Giving a Green Light' to the KKK to Come Out

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 12:17
<p>The November 20 issue of <em>Time</em> offers the usual bucket of liberal "goodies" – a profile of Trump-trashing Gold Star Dad Khizr Khan and his new book, a book excerpt from Dan Rather, and a glowing review of Pete Souza’s book chronicling his amazing days as White House photographer to the one and only Barack Obama – “born out of scraps of history and hope,” <em>Time</em> said when he won. Then there was a spicy “Conversation” with black filmmakers Spike Lee and Dee Rees to celebrate their new work featured on Netflix. It wouldn’t be long before talk of Amerikkka and racism.</p>

NY Times Op-Ed: 'The Pence Rule' Is a False Solution to 'Male Predation'

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 11:49
<p>On Wednesday, Katelyn Beaty, described as "an editor at large for <em>Christianity Today</em> and the author of 'A Woman’s Place,'" tried to make "A Christian Case Against the 'Pence Rule.'"  In the process, she smeared the rule, and the Vice President, as being in place primarily to avoid "male predation."</p>

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 00:43

Cupp for an illuminating 22-minute podcast released Friday dealing with conservative distrust in the news media.

CNN, News One Now Ignore Black Police Officer Murdered in Baltimore

Flashback: 'Lion of the Senate' Ted Kennedy's Weird Sex Antics Widely Known

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 21:44
<p>The sudden condemnation of sexual harrassment by Democrats within their own ranks rings a bit hollow especially due to the suspicious timing. It now seems as more of a way for Democrats to go after President Donald Trump or Judge Roy Moore of Alabama rather than sincere disgust at the sexual antics of people such as former President Bill Clinton or Senator Al Franken.</p> <p>One glaring example proves this point. Remember the man hailed by liberals and the mainstream media as the "Lion of the Senate," Ted Kennedy? His truly bizarre, off the wall, sexual harrassment antics were widely known long before he passed away in 2009 yet there was no condemnation of him and, of course, no call for him to leave the Senate. <em>GQ</em> magazine wrote about the "waitress sandwich" incident involving both Kennedy and fellow senator Chris Dodd in their February 1990 edition which was reprinted on April 14, 2016. It reveals in excruciating detail the extremely humiliating sexual harrassment of a waitress yet no liberal voice was raised against Kennedy (or Dodd) even though the incident was common knowledge:</p>

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 20:47
<p>Fearing that America was one step closer to becoming a theocracy with the opening of the privately-funded Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C., on Thursday and Friday, <em>CBS This Morning</em> and NBC’s <em>Today</em> hyped the supposed “controversy” swirling around the institution, even claiming that a “cloud of suspicion” hung over the building as it opened its doors.</p>
