Variety's Brian Steinberg reported on Thursday that "drummer and 'Tonight Show' regular Questlove" became a member of the board of trustees for New York Public Radio. While Steinberg noted that "Questlove is a member of the Philadelphia band The Roots, as well as an author and musical director," he failed to mention that the NBC musician was behind an infamous 2011 attack on former Rep. Michele Bachmann, where his band played the intro to a song title "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone.
The American media cabal is…ridiculous. They are the Borg of politics - many entities, but of but one Leftist mind. Led around by their noses by whatever hack government-growing politician is before them at that moment.
Just as they calmly repeated the "ventriloquized" Obama line on the Iran deal, so they're doing with the latest ruling on "Net neutrality."
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin began his show on Thursday night by citing a Wednesday post from this writer about President Obama gushing over PBS’s “civility” to set up his opening monologue that included him referring to the President as having “been the most vicious, vile, attack President that I can think of.”
Wednesday's All Things Considered on NPR touted an eight-year-old boy who now dresses as a girl serving as an "educator" of sorts about transgenderism — first to his parents, and later to his neighbors and classmates. Correspondent Johnny Kauffman of Georgia affiliate WABE played up how "the city of Kennesaw, where the [boy's] family lives, is in one of the most conservative congressional districts in the country... [his] parents say they get a lot of questions from friends and other parents. But [he] remains the best teacher."
Amidst PBS NewsHour co-host Gwen Ifill knocking Elkhart, Indiana at Wednesday night town hall for not supporting President Obama and audience members firing off some serious hardballs at him, there was one question concerning the “lack of civility” in politics that allowed the President to hail PBS as being “all about civility” while attacking talk radio as the cause of this decay.
On WMAL's Mornings on the Mall radio show on Wednesday, The Daily Mail's David Martosko revealed the stark difference between journalists who cover Hillary Clinton versus those who cover Donald Trump: "Having spent time in...both the Hillary and the Trump bubble, I will tell you that...the reporters who are following around Hillary — a lot of them are Hillary fans. They're just in awe of her."
Lacking any self-examination whatsoever, failed McCain campaign head and MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt lashed out late Wednesday evening on Mark Levin as the embodiment of “narcissism” and “self-aggrandizers” who have created a “cancer” that’s led “the demise of the conservative movement in the Republican Party.”
Still recovering from a long night covering the New York primary results, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews resumed his recent streak of attacks on conservative talk radio host Mark Levin by suggesting on Wednesday that Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) will lose the GOP presidential nod so he can “end up on the radio duking it out with Mark Levin.”
Wednesday morning, Tim Graham at NewsBusters observed how pseudo-conservative David Brooks, who is no fan of Donald Trump, gave the current GOP frontrunner credit for having "destroyed a dying husk" of "obsolete Reagan ideology" in the Republican Party.
That's fascinating stuff, given the catch of the day by Instapundit's Ed Driscoll. You see, 12 years ago, Brooks gave Reagan credit for having transformed the party and conservatism "from a past- and loss-oriented movement to a future- and possibility-oriented one." In other words, even Dense David recognized at the time that Reagan's positive tone and belief in American exceptionalism — a term which the left, up to and including President Obama, has tried to ridicule out of existence — were the foundation for how Reagan, in Brooks's words, "embraced America as a revolutionary force."
NPR's Scott Horsley acted as a stenographer for President Obama on Tuesday's Morning Edition, as he reported on the Democrat's Monday slam of the news media. Horsley played up how the President "spoke as a politician who's been on the receiving end of tough questions; but also as a somewhat cranky news consumer who thinks too many reporters are falling down on the job." The correspondent also turned to a talking head who backed up Obama's criticism of the press.
It has been nine days since Ingham County, Michigan prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III, a Democrat, was arrested and charged with "15 criminal counts" in three different counties involving engaging prostitutes, pandering prostitution, and willful neglect of duty by a public officer.
The press has been reluctant to identify Dunnings as a Democrat in its news coverage, either avoiding the tag completely or saving it for very late paragraphs.

Conservatives aren’t the only ones who’ve had enough of celebrities’ browbeating on political issues. Former Saturday Night Live comedienne Tina Fey thinks that actors are “very stupid” and that the political talk during the Oscars was “Hollywood bullshit.”
