For the second time in less than two weeks, Andrew Sullivan's ignorance was revealed on national television.
Following George Will and PBS's Gwen Ifill on ABC's This Week last month, MSNBC's sole conservative commentator S.E. Cupp assisted Sullivan with looking like a total moron on HBO's Real Time Friday (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Last week Bill Maher warned Mitt Romney supporters, "Black people know who you are and they will come after you."
On HBO's Real Time Friday, the host said that Republicans reacted to Obama's victory Tuesday like they "just found out that their wife is f--king a black guy" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
The ignorance and blind sycophancy of Bill Maher knows no bounds.
On HBO's Real Time Friday, the man who proudly gave a million dollars to Barack Obama's Super PAC said on national television, "Who cares what somebody in his administration wrote down on a piece of paper and predicted?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Bill Maher on HBO's Real Time Friday might have said one of the most disgraceful things uttered during the 2012 campaign season.
"If you're thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you" (video follows with commentary):
As NewsBusters readers know, one of my guilty pleasures is pointing out the staggering ignorance of Bill Maher.
The object of my disaffection certainly didn't let me down Friday evening when on HBO's Real Time he actually told Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) that we spend 42 percent of our total budget on defense (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Not surprisingly, Bill Maher and guest Ben Affleck took some cheap shots at former President George W. Bush during the Overtime installment of Friday's Real Time on HBO.
Smacking them down was conservative author Ann Coulter who deliciously said, "This is getting more boring than Charlie Rose (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Conservative author Ann Coulter made minced meat out of Bill Maher Friday.
As HBO's Real Time host spewed Democrat talking point after Democrat talking point, Coulter told him, "You're watching MSNBC, and I would not trust them to give you the truth" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
It's becoming incredibly clear since Barack Obama's horrible performance in last week's debate that his fans in the media are more and more desperate.
On Sunday, HBO's Bill Maher said to his followers on Twitter, "John Sununu is a racist fat f--k" (serious vulgarity warning):
Actor and musician Ice T was apparently also displeased with Barack Obama's debate performance Wednesday.
Commenting on Twitter Friday, Ice T wrote, "Message to the President: 'No weed before the next debate homie.'"
How poorly did Barack Obama do in Wednesday's debate?
So poorly that Bill Maher, one of his benefactors, tweeted, "i can't believe i'm saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter":
In the just published excerpt of Ann Coulter's new book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From the Seventies to Obama, the conservative author noted the racial double standards of MSNBC commentators such as Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow.
Appearing on Fox News's Fox & Friends Tuesday, Coulter expanded her criticism to Lawrence O'Donnell and HBO's Bill Maher (video follows with transcript):
To likely no one's surprise, HBO's Sarah Palin-bashing schlockudrama "Game Change" did very well at Sunday's Emmys.
Julianne Moore won for best actress in a miniseries or movie, and proceeded to celebrate by mocking her character saying, "Wow, I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down" (video follows with commentary):
"When your guy left town, Dubya - who nobody asked him to come back by the way at the Republican convention - unemployment was well past ten percent and skyrocketing."
So falsely said MSNBC's Chris Matthews to conservative talk radio host Roger Hedgecock on HBO's Real Time Friday (video follows with commentary):
Bill Maher not surprisingly spent most of his HBO show Friday trashing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
During his final New Rule, the Real Time host said, "In many ways we're all a bit Mitt Romney - and I don't just mean dorks in mom jeans who are afraid of black people" (video follows with transcript and commentary, serious vulgarity warning, file photo):
HBO's Bill Maher on Friday made an anti-Semitic joke about the producers of the anti-Muslim film some are claiming is responsible for anti-American uprisings around the world.
This hysterically came moments after the Real Time host criticized Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for politicizing the violence (video follows with transcript and commentary, vulgarity warning):
To welcome guests to the Republican National Convention, the Media Research Center placed a "Don't Believe the Liberal Media" billboard outside the Tampa airport last week.
On HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, the host aired a video by Alexandra Pelosi which included a shot of this billboard (video follows with commentary):
Bill Maher made a truly disgusting comment on NBC's Tonight Show Wednesday.
After host Jay Leno asked who he thought the mystery guest speaker would be at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Thursday night, Maher quickly replied without any hesitation, “George Zimmerman” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
The ignorance and stupidity of Bill Maher know no bounds.
On HBO's Real Time Friday, in a discussion about who created the internet, Maher actually told billionaire businessman Mark Mogul, "You should send a royalty check to Al Gore every f—king day of your life" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
It's become clear that Bill Maher's devotion to Barack Obama is so all encompassing that he's lost any capacity to reason or view things with even an iota of impartiality.
On HBO's Real Time Friday, the host actually accused presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney of having - wait for it! - "a messiah complex" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
For roughly sixty minutes Friday, Obama campaign contributor Bill Maher behaved like, well, a man that has given $1 million to reelect the current White House resident.
In his final 'New Rule' segment, the HBO Real Time host said, "If Republicans can make it harder for minorities to vote with their tricky ID laws, then we get to make it harder for Tea Baggers to vote by bringing back the literacy test" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Bill Maher made it clear Tuesday that when Real Time returns from vacation on HBO this Friday, Paul Ryan will be a prime target of his attacks.
Speaking with the Huffington Post, the typically stoned comedian said, "This is the intellectual?...Somehow he's the smartest guy in the Party and [Sarah Palin's] the stupidest woman on earth, but they agree on everything" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
It was widely reported back in June that the producers of the HBO series “Game of Thrones” deliberately used a gruesome image of former president George W. Bush’s head impaled on a stake during the drama’s season one finale. The backlash was so great that DVD shipments were halted, digital copies were edited, and an apology was issued via press release.
Now the author of the books, George R.R. Martin has shown his true colors, blaming conservatives in swing states for what he called “voter suppression”.
You would expect that as a contributor to Barack Obama's Super PAC, HBO's Bill Maher wouldn't have kind things to say about Paul Ryan being named Mitt Romney's running mate.
True to form, Maher took to Twitter on Saturday to make vulgar comments about Ryan's budget despite likely not knowing one single word that's in it (serious vulgarity warning):
Last night's episode of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom was hilariously titled, "Bullies." Unfortunately for HBO, the humor was due to the program's seemingly endless hypocrisy and not because there was anything remotely funny in the dialogue of the episode itself.
Lauded as a ground-breaking show by much of the liberal media, The Newsroom really jumped the shark this week by trying to paint Republicans as bullies all while portraying liberal character Will MacAvoy (Jeff Daniels) and his network's executives belittled women and demonized African-Americans who dared to support conservative candidates rather than back liberal Democrats as the Left expects them to. [video embedded below]
As NewsBusters previously reported, HBO's The Newsroom has used information for its scripts from material provided to it by the far-left, George Soros-funded propaganda outlet Think Progress.
On Sunday, the show cherry-picked six seconds - yes, I said six seconds! - from a highly-edited TP video to smear conservative businessmen Charles and David Koch (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Forbes Media Writer: HBO Rips 'Newsroom' Reviews Out of Context to Make Critics Sound Thrilled by Series
The gushing praise for Newsroom that HBO is highlighting in an ad campaign just seemed too good to be true to Jeff Bercovici, who noted the new Aaron Sorkin-created series was earning a "distinctly mediocre [score of] 57" on Metacritic.com. "Even those critics who’ve embraced it have generally done so with considerable caveats," the Forbes media critic noted.
So sure enough, upon closer examination, reviews by three major news outlets that HBO excerpted from in an ad in The Hollywood Reporter trade paper "were distinctly negative." With apologies to the Newsroom-philic disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather, the words were accurate but the tone was fake (emphases mine):
Over the previous four episodes, Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom has become the liberal media's Sunday night darling. So, after the July 15th offering, which featured fictional news anchor Will MacAvoy comparing Tea Party members to sex offenders, a little conservative-bashing was expected. The July 22 episode did not disappoint, with the team at "Atlantic Cable News" delving into the Citizen's United Supreme Court case and effectively accusing Clarence Thomas of bribery.
In the first few minutes of the episode, the news team becomes aware of the overthrow of Mubarak's government in Egypt. Despite the fact that one of the most volatile countries in the world has ousted its dictator, they decided to lead with a report that Republican governor Scott Walker is "trapped in a newspaper office with 75 teachers outside." They then analyze a tape of a reporter asking the Koch brothers if the Citizen's United decision increased their influence. [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
