On Saturday, in a post titled "Political Correctness Kills in Paris, Terrifies Media," Jeffrey Lord at NewsBusters cited how the New York Times, in covering the Charlie Hebdo massacre, deliberately changed a story subject's quote from what it originally reported.

This post will show how the message massagers at the Times subsequently went another step further, attempting to convince readers that the subject's statement quoted elsewhere isn't what she said.

Context is all, especially in media, unless you're a liberal intent on smearing the most prominent voice in radio who also happens to be conservative. At that point, context becomes an inconvenience quickly to be jettisoned.

Two days before Christmas, Rush Limbaugh was talking about the leaked Sony emails when he said something that proceeded to make news during the traditionally slow news drought of the holidays.

Conservative radio host and widely-read author Hugh Hewitt ended 2014 with a bang. BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith finished it with a whimper, thanks to Hewitt. When the two spoke yesterday, it brightened New Year's Eve for many a listener.

Smith appeared on Hewitt's program to discuss BuzzFeed's coverage and what to expect in the coming year when the subject of anti-police protests arose (audio) --

To anyone unfamiliar with the force of nature that is Mark Levin, his withering denunciation of President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and aspiring despot Al Sharpton on his radio show earlier this week could serve as a fitting introduction.

Levin could barely contain his outrage against the trio he accused of having "blood on their hands" for the unprovoked murders of two New York City police officers as retaliation for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner in their confrontations with police (audio) --

Yeah, it's a stretch -- but not by much.

Incorrigible thought criminal Rush Limbaugh wondered aloud on his radio show yesterday whether President Obama will fasten onto the latest left-wing protest fad, the raising of one's arms aloft while chanting "Hands up, don't shoot!," preferably in proximity to heavily-armed police.

Over the last decade, liberals have become implacably convinced that harsh interrogation of captured jihadists who planned the slaughter of thousands of innocents on 9/11, and who sought to kill far more if they could acquire the means, constituted "torture."

On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh performed an invaluable public service by citing better examples of torture that never seem to bother left wingers, despite their vocal piety on the subject (audio) --

Radio host extraordinaire Rush Limbaugh has turned his attention toward one of the least noticed but arguably most relevant circumstances involving the death of Eric Garner after his arrest in July by New York City police.

A Staten Island grand jury earlier this week decided against indicting the police officer alleged to have used a chokehold on Garner when he was arrested, a procedure banned by the city's police but reportedly allowed by state law. The grand jury's decision, coming fast on the heels of a similar conclusion by a grand jury convened after the shooting death of an 18-year-old black male by a white police officer last August in Ferguson, Mo., further exacerbated racial tensions in New York City and across the nation.

Many liberals are skeptical of religion and outright antagonistic toward people of faith, which makes the left's penchant for elevating their version of patron saints all the more peculiar.

Latest example of leftist canonization -- Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man who was shot to death in Ferguson, Mo., in August after he robbed a convenience store, assaulted a cop, tried to wrest control of the officer's gun, and charged toward him when told to stop.

As to be expected, Ed Schultz didn't catch it. Then again, perhaps he did and let it go anyway.

On his last podcast before Thanksgiving, Schultz was talking with Marcia Fudge, Democrat congresswoman from Ohio, about violent protests in Ferguson, Mo., after a grand jury decided against indicting police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown last August.

If this isn't the most contorted apologia for the thuggery that led Michael Brown to his death, it's pretty damn close.

You just knew that MSNBC action hero and lefty podcaster Ed Schultz would serve up singularly delusional opinions on the grand jury's decision against charging Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for Brown's death back in August. It was just a question of how delusional.

Seldom-heard praise for President Obama from Rush Limbaugh today -- wrapped within withering analysis of Obama's disingenuous remarks last night after a grand jury decided against indicting Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown in August.

Yet again, Obama fails to live up to his billing as a unifying figure, Limbaugh pointed out. Instead, he's just the opposite (audio) --

Thank you, Rush Limbaugh, for answering a persistent question about the deceitfully-named Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare -- where have I seen this before?

Turns out something similar was pulled off in a major Hollywood film from the early '70s, Limbaugh pointed out to his radio listeners yesterday.
