The Huffington Post Religion page devotes itself to the worship of the Global Warming cult with seven stories on that topic. To emphasize the point, the page features a picture of a Green Jesus at the top.
During Thursday afternoon's edition of the Fox News Channel's The Five, the co-hosts took on Bill Maher, who claimed last Friday that “the reason the people are so polarized is Fox News.”
At first, Greg Gutfeld said he agreed with the host of the Friday night HBO series Real Time with Bill Maher, stating: “He's right! If it weren't for Fox, we'd all be in lock step because the rest of the media is as compliant as pizza dough.”
ABC's Good Morning America uncritically promotes the liberal agenda, regardless of the facts. But it's not just political stories that excite the credulous hosts. On August 4, George Stephanopoulos eagerly announced, "A Southern California city on edge, because they fear a lion is on the loose? It's all over that video right there."
You can’t make it up.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has taken a Rush Limbaugh discussion on sexual assault, deliberately lied about it, then turned it into a fundraising pitch with a blast e-mail. And oh yes: the DCCC, in yet another liberal assault on free speech, wants to pressure advertisers to drop Rush and take him off the air based on the lie, so a petition has been launched.
Indian-American actress Mindy Kaling not only stars in her own sitcom on Fox called “The Mindy Project,” she’s in charge of it. You might think that feminists would celebrate that achievement, but that would show that you don’t know about feminists. Apparently, nothing satisfies them. Instead, they are demanding she use her program to sell feminism, and its crowning joy, abortion.
Kaling committed a gaffe among the Hollywood Left by telling a Flare magazine interviewer she had no plans to address what the magazine called “the American right’s current war on abortion.” Kaling said “It would be demeaning to the topic to talk about it in a half-hour sitcom.”
The Washington Post's Metro section on Saturday carried the headline "Redskins fans say 'Daily Show' misled them: Showdown with Native Americans Was a Surprise." Fans were set up for an ambush to be accused of racism, or loving a racist mascot.
In other words, once again, Jon Stewart's Comedy Central crew lied their faces off to an interview subject they wanted to mock. But this time, the liberal media didn't let it slide. Reporter Ian Shapira laid out just how much Team Stewart lied, and then said "No comment" when they were exposed.
When White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest made his first Fox News appearance in that role, he may have thought that having Shepard Smith interview him would make the exercise a relative cakewalk.
It didn't happen. Even though Smith, as Matt Sheffield observed last year at NewsBusters, is "not known as any sort of conservative," he was clearly critical of Earnest's breezy claims about the wondrous "coalition" allegedly being assembled to fight ISIS/ISIL without U.S. combat forces, calling it "as the president once put it, something of a fantasy." The video and a transcript of key segments follow the jump.
The lefty writer says conservatives are at war with reality, and they want schoolkids in the Lone Star State and elsewhere to learn illusions about American history.
Marcotte’s peg was a report from the liberal Texas Freedom Network alleging, in Marcotte’s words, “that conservatives have been able to inject a shocking number of lies and disinformation into [Texas] public school history classrooms.”
Nicolle Wallace, the token "conservative" on "The View," went out of her way to to express her faith in the Obama administration in the war on ISIS.
Trust he was a "very reluctant warrior," she said, but now "he is deadly serious."
The would-be scandal of alleged widespread domestic abuse in the National Football League hit its high water mark this week. It began receding when Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh, armed with empirical data, pushed back and demonstrated that it is yet another bogus issue pushed by agenda-driven media.
Both conservative talkers cited an excellent RedState post by the diarist Bill S., titled "No, the NFL is Not a Hotbed of Wife and Child Beaters." After stating he is not a football fan, Bill S. wrote that "conventional wisdom" maligns the NFL as "full of criminals ... wife beaters, sexual abusers, murderers, rapists, etc. And the leftists are going to remind us of this every time some sort of offensive act occurs. But is this true? The truth of the matter is that the rate of criminality in the NFL is lower than that of the general public."
On Friday morning, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski joined the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein in calling for equal news coverage if Christie is officially exonerated in numerous investigations into his involvement of the scandal known as Bridgegate to the non-stop coverage when it broke in January.
During a discussion with their panel on Friday’s Morning Joe, they discussed news that a source informed NBC News on Thursday that a federal investigation has found no evidence that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) knew of or ordered lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September 2013.
CNN's Twitter account on Thursday boosted a Rolling Stone article that hyped the far-left Occupy Wall Street movement's latest efforts. The social media post touted, "Think #OccupyWallStreet is dead? Think again. This short-lived occupation is still fighting for five key issues," and linked to Rebecca Nathanson's Wednesday piece on the "five campaigns that OWS-inspired groups have continued to fight for since the movement's presumed conclusion."
On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Friday, host Andrea Mitchell noted that "Chris Christie has been cleared by the federal investigators of any allegations" in the George Washington Bridge closing scandal. However, MSNBC political reporter Kasie Hunt quickly dismissed the development: "But, there's a lot of damage that's been done in the interim. And there's going to be a lot of questions still that Chris Christie's gonna have to answer..." [Listen to the audio]
Hunt imagined what donors to a hypothetical Christie presidential campaign would say: "People who want to be able to make a sound investment who might look at him and say, 'Well, okay, maybe you didn't do anything criminal, but this is indicative of an overall kind of atmosphere in your administration that would be problematic in the White House.'"
On Tuesday night’s All Things Considered, NPR anchor Robert Siegel awarded a seven-and-a-half minute interview to The New Republic and its editor, Franklin Foer. The magazine is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a new book called “Insurrections of the Mind.”
Siegel found time to ask about a Hendrik Hertzberg book review trashing Ronald Reagan as a “child monarch,” which he described as a “scathing and very amusing read.” He also brought up a Henry Fairlie piece eviscerating George Will, which Siegel called “another very amusing piece.” But he never found time to discuss the New Republic’s enormous scandal with writer Stephen Glass's slew of wildly fabricated articles in the magazine from 1995 to 1998, memorialized in the movie "Shattered Glass.”
On Thursday’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon comedian Billy Crystal reminisced about Robin Williams and recounted a hilarious moment way back in 1988 when his longtime friend and fellow Democrat realized they had a stinker on their hands with presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.
