CBS Partners with Liberal Refinery29 to ‘Empower All Women,’ Except Conservatives

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 17:21
<p>Can a news outlet claim to be fair and unbiased if it partners with a lefty feminist site? Short answer: no. <em>CBS This Morning</em> announced on Nov. 14 that it is “partnering” with Refinery29 for a new series for millennials, “M[Y] Generation.” In a segment on Nov.15, co-founder and executive creative director of Refinery29, Piera Gelardi, told the CBS roundtable that “Refinery29 is a platform that’s really meant to celebrate and empower all women.” But the published history of Refinery29 articles indicates otherwise.</p>

HuffPost Claims Joe Biden Too Creepy Around Women to Run in 2020

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 16:40
<p>Former Vice-President Joe Biden is currently being hailed in much of the mainstream media and on friendly interview shows as the Great Democrat Hope for the 2020 presidential election. However, in stark contrast to the current paeans to Biden, the liberal <em>HuffPost</em> has tossed cold water on this idea. Amanda Terkel has written in the November 15 <em>HuffPost</em> that the idea of Biden running for president is really quite horrible due to his very creepy treatment of women.</p> <p> </p>

How Will Media Cover Al Franken’s ‘Disgusting’ Assault?

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 16:26
<p>According to Leeann Tweeden, a radio anchor in Los Angeles, Democratic Senator Al Franken <a href="http://www.kabc.com/2017/11/16/leeann-tweeden-on-senator-al-franken/#.Wg2rkOW5t3I.twitter" target="_blank">groped and kissed her</a> without consent. Given how quickly journalists jumped on the Roy Moore story, will they offer equally aggressive coverage for this liberal politician from Minnesota? Oh and there’s photographic evidence. Tweeden recounted being on a USO tour in 2006 to entertain the troops. Franken, who was not then a senator, wrote a skit that included him kissing the model and host. Tweeden recounted his predatory behavior: </p>

Alt-Left Insanity: Libs Want to Ban Raising Kids, Kill Aging Parents

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 13:29
<p>If Paul McCartney and Wings want to record another album, they should call it, <em>Ban On The Run.</em> It could be the Splinter theme song, appropriate since this is “Ban Week” on that crazy, alt-lefty site. Ban Week gives the Splinter staff a chance to opine (say dumb garbage) about everything from cologne to zoos. If you didn’t think liberals hated everything before, you will now. Even more disturbing is how many facets of life they want to get rid of -- even aging parents. It’s not funny. It’s just bizarre. Logan’s Run beat Splinter to the punch by about 40 years -- depicting the murder of anyone over a certain age and government raising our kids, too. </p>

USA's 'Mr. Robot' Takes Cheap Shots Against 'Buffoon' Trump In Latest Episode

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 05:25
<p>I think by now there is pretty much no one on the left side of the political spectrum who takes to heart Michelle Obama’s words “When they go low, we go high.” If there is anything the recent episode of USA’s <em>Mr. Robot </em>taught me, it is that fact alone. That is, unless someone can enlighten me how calling the sitting president a “buffoon” is now the high road. I’ll be waiting.</p>

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 04:48

MSNBC Panel Tears into Gloria Allred for Possibly Tainting Accusations

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 04:41
<p>On Wednesday, the Alabama GOP and an attorney for senatorial candidate Roy Moore held a press conference to stand by their candidate and tried to discredit the sexual misconduct allegations Moore was facing. The only accusation of sexual impropriety they chose to focus on was that of Beverly Young Nelson and her infamous lawyer, Gloria Allred. The fact that the Allred’s reputation was that of a dubious attention seeker spooked the panel on MSNBC’s <em>MTP Daily</em> because it could taint other credible accusations, and not just those against Moore.</p>

AP Delays, Downplays Trump's Role in Freeing UCLA Players Held for Shoplifting in China

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 04:18
<p>On Tuesday, three UCLA basketball players who were arrested in China last week on charges of shoplifting and who potentially faced 3 to 10 years in prison were released, thanks to intervention on their behalf by President Trump and the U.S. State Department. In sharp contrast to how other wire services have handled the news, two stories at the Associated Press,  waited eight and ten paragraphs, respectively, to recognize Trump's role in freeing them.</p>

Former NY Times Reporter Mocks NewsBusters For Treating New Info as... New

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 04:09
<p>The liberal website Vox published an interview with former <em>New York Times </em>legal reporter Linda Greenhouse, and the headline surely applauded her liberal take on journalism: "The most respected Supreme Court reporter of her generation slams media 'objectivity'.” Greenhouse oddly mocked my blog on NewsBusters for treating her revelation of monthly donations to Planned Parenthood as not new...when everyone knew about it inside <em>The New York Times. </em></p>

'CBS Evening News' Gives 44 Secs to Trump Drinking Water, 0 to Menendez

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 02:06
<p>Wednesday marked the continuation of the near total blackout on the corruption trial of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez by the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). While none of the networks covered the trial, which was in the middle of jury deliberations, <em>CBS Evening News</em> thought it was a priority to run a 44 Second news brief mocking President Trump for drinking from a bottle of water while in the middle of a long speech.</p>

NYT’s Stephens Suggests Republicans Should Be Forced to Support Moore ‘To Learn’ a ‘Lesson’

Thu, 11/16/2017 - 01:43
<p>On MSNBC Wednesday night, New York Times columnist and faux Republican Bret Stephens insinuated on Hardball that conservatives and Republicans condemning Alabama Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore should be forced to back Moore so that they “learn the lesson” to not support Steve Bannon-backed candidates. Host Chris Matthews led into Stephens by conceding that, in politics: “If you’re on a certain side, you put up with just about anything bad on your side and you say, so's your old man to the other side and you stick to your side.”</p>

'White Supremacist' Trump Praised for Aiding Release of Black UCLA Players Arrested in China

Wed, 11/15/2017 - 23:00
<p>President Donald Trump, who as you've heard, is a "white supremacist," went to bat for three Black UCLA basketball players detained in China for shoplifting. They got themselves arrested last week for stealing sunglasses in Hangzou, where their team played a game against Georgia Tech. Thanks to the efforts of this "racist, bigot, xenophobe" president, who spoke up for the Bruins' shoplifters with China's leader, all three have returned to Los Angeles.</p>

<p>Professor Travis Reider of Johns Hopkins University boosted population control as a solution for climate change in a Wednesday op-ed for NBCNews.com. Reider, an assistant director at the school's Berman Institute of Bioethics, hyped that "having a child is a major contributor to climate change," and asserted that "the logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children."</p>

CNN's Cuomo Gloats Over Sessions Hesitance to Investigate Clinton

Wed, 11/15/2017 - 21:41
<p>On Wednesday's <em>New Day</em>, CNN's Chris Cuomo gloated over congressional Republicans apparently suffering a setback in their push for an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a way that it is unlikely that the CNN host would ever do if Democrats experienced a similar setback.</p>

Morning Joe on Uranium One: 'Dumb Conspiracy Theory', 'Clown Show', 'Debunked So Many Times’

Wed, 11/15/2017 - 21:32
<p>On Wednesday’s <em>Morning Joe</em>, the panel breathed a collective sigh of relief over the news that during yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rebuffed the notion that he would launch a special prosecutor’s investigation against the Clintons for their alleged corrupt conduct related to the Russian acquisition of Uranium One. The liberal pundits proceeded to proclaim that the Uranium One story was a “dumb conspiracy theory” that has “been debunked” “many times” and praised Sessions for his “noble” actions.</p>

Wed, 11/15/2017 - 21:31
<p>While the networks devoted over two hours to the charges facing Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore in less than a week’s time, they’ve completely ignored similarly shocking and lewd charges brought against two Democrats, one who is also running for Congress, like Moore.</p>

Silence on Sleaze-Bob Menendez

Wed, 11/15/2017 - 21:29
<p>The verdict is in. I pronounce Democrat leaders, left-wing feminists and Beltway journalists guilty of gross negligence and hypocrisy over a dirty rotten sleazeball in their midst. For the past 11 weeks, Bob Menendez has been on trial for 18 counts of bribery, fraud and corruption involving nearly $1 million in gifts and donations. The jury remained deadlocked as of Tuesday.</p>
