CBS 'Follows the Money' on Federal Spending with Left-Wing Talking Poi

April 16th, 2008 4:36 PM
One man's pork spending is another's "relative bargain" according to the "Follow the Money" segment on the April 15 "CBS Evening News." The newscast commemorated Tax Day by featuring what federal tax dollars are spent on, but what they chose to highlight was peculiar. "The biggest tab for taxpayers is defense," CBS correspondent Bob Orr reported. "The average American household is paying $2,…

Newspapers Fail to Recognize Liberal Leanings of Families USA

March 27th, 2008 12:41 PM
From windy Washington, D.C., to sunny Palm Beach, Florida, the liberal print media are refusing to note the liberal bent of an interest group vocal in the health care debate. The March 26 edition of the Palm Beach Post -- a broadsheet notorious to conservatives for its unbalanced treatment of Rush Limbaugh -- featured not one but two articles which pushed government-run universal health care…

Frank Rich Hearts Huckabee

December 10th, 2007 7:21 AM
As Republican primary campaign slogans go, "Endorsed by Frank Rich!" might not be a candidate's strongest play. But for better or worse Mike Huckabee is essentially stuck with it after Rich's NYT's column of yesterday. The ostensible theme of "The Republicans Find Their Obama" is that Republican voters are leaning toward Huckabee for the same reasons that Dems are trending to Obama: that both…

Krugman Shows Why Liberals Think Economy Is Lousy

November 21st, 2007 5:40 PM
For years one of the great unanswered questions along Main and Wall streets has been why, in the midst of 24 consecutive quarters of uninterrupted growth, polls have regularly found Americans sour about the economy. On Tuesday, a battle between the New York Times liberal economics columnist Paul Krugman and WOR radio's Steve Malzberg offered a clue. In fact, after 16 minutes of sparring on…

Anchoress's Anecdotes Demonstrate Ongoing Negative Impact of Old Media

November 16th, 2007 10:02 PM
The Anchoress, a three-time Weblog Awards finalist and 2007 Catholic Blog Awards Winner (congratulations!) in the Best Political/Social Commentary category (scroll down at link to see it), delivered a cold but necessary shower earlier this evening to those of us who are tempted to exaggerate or overstate the impact New Media is having on most Americans. I'll bet that a lot of us can relay similar…

Woe, Be Gone, Garrison Keillor: More Goop About Cutting Off Kids

Couric Parrots Liberal Complaints About 'Free Lunch' from Pharma for D

October 26th, 2007 12:47 PM
Why is it that a page from Katie Couric's "Notebook" is often cribbed from the left-wing playbook? [Check here for a real eye-roller from June 2007] In her October 25 "Notebook" item at her Couric & Co. blog, the "CBS Evening News" anchor parroted the complaints of a left-wing group that finds scandalous the practice of doctors getting freebies from pharmaceutical companies.:We all know the…

WaPo Notes Frost Family Connection to Liberal Health Care Advocate

October 23rd, 2007 2:20 PM
Every time the media feature an ostensibly Average Joe to further a liberal Democratic talking point, my curiosity is piqued as to how that person was singled out by a news agency to flesh out the human dimension of a policy argument. Many times it turns out the poster child/family in question is delivered to the media on a silver platter courtesy of a professional liberal activist. The Frost…

S-CHIP: Dems, Media Mount Another 'Smear' Campaign

October 19th, 2007 11:19 AM
Despite, or perhaps because of the S-CHIP stalemate in Washington, liberal media outlets including the New York Times, Think Progress and now the Courier Journal in Louisville, Kentucky continue to somewhat sinisterly flame one aspect of the S-CHIP story at the urging of Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) staffer Matt Miller, even though the narrative they've woven isn't at all…

Olbermann Suggests Bush 'Hates Kids,' Pete Stark 'Refreshing

Congressman Stark’s Disgusting Rant Against President Bush Ignored B

October 19th, 2007 1:29 AM
Americans on both sides of the aisle should be bitterly angry today. A United States Congressman stood on the floor of the House of Representatives on Thursday and said that kids are being sent "to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president`s amusement." As if that wasn't bad enough, the three evening news programs of America's top broadcast networks didn't feel this despicable act…

NYT Blog Asks Readers to Pressure Representatives to Override S-CHIP V

October 18th, 2007 1:59 PM
It certainly isn't shocking that the New York Times wants to expand government-sponsored health insurance. However, is it appropriate for the Editorial Board of the Times Blog to ask readers to pressure House Representatives to override a presidential veto? Or, does this fall into a similar level of advocacy as a newspaper endorsing a politician running for office? While you ponder the…

CBS’s Hannah Storm: Victory Over Al Qaeda in Iraq Just ‘Semantics

October 16th, 2007 6:01 PM
On Tuesday’s CBS "Early Show," host Hannah Storm interviewed Democratic Senator Joe Biden and when the subject turned to recent success in Iraq, Storm summed things up in this question to the presidential candidate: And let's talk about this report in "The Washington Post," that says some of the generals are considering declaring victory in Iraq over Al Qaeda. Now, does it matter if they do or…
