On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan told host Chris Wallace that he and running mate Mitt Romney expected liberal media bias to affect their campaign from day one. “I think it kind of goes without saying that there is definitely a media bias,” Ryan said. “Look, I’m a conservative, Chris. I’m used to media bias. We expected media bias going into this. That’s why we’re trying to cut through and go straight to people. That’s why when in Washington you hear people complain about media bias, come out into these states
I watched this and Ryan was, as always, terrific. He refused to nibble at Wallace's baited hooks, articulated the points he needed to make and made a good case for electing Romney/Ryan.
For those of you who haven't yet seen Fox Sunday, click it off after Ryan's interview, because the panel was stacked with: Bill Kristol and Laura Ingraham (known to dislike Romney), Juan Williams and Liz Marlantes from the Christian Science Monitor.
First act of the new Republican Congress pass a Law: Prison sentence for Journalist who are caught manipulating the news to provide aid or support to any candidate one year prior to a Federal Election.
Any one convicted will face a 20 to in Life Prison term under FEDERAL sentencing mandates.
Can you hear the MSM cry and scream about the CHILL it will have on the First Amendment, the only amendment they ever support. Their response, how can you tell they have been manipulating? Well how about doctored videos for starters and the covering up corruption of this administration at the highest levels of the MSM and the WH.
I know, I'm wishful thinking. A man's gotta dream.
I haven't watched this yet - waiting for re-broadcast on FNC. However, must respond to #2. While I appreciate and share the motive behind your "dream", #2, the Framers had a better idea. The best way to deal with bad free speech or bad free press is more free speech and press to expose and discredit it. That is the whole idea of the First Amendment. Rather than attempting to make offensive and malicious ideas illegal, just let sunshine do it's thing. Truth has a way. I'd like to see a conservative on-air broadcast network news operation to counter the LSM lies. It should include daily alternatives to Today, GMA, etc. as well as the evening news - not just one hour of FNS per week.. How about it, Rupert and Roger?
As to expected media bias, just wait until Wednesday night when so much is "on the line". "You ain't seen nothin' yet." Romney had better be prepared for an all-out ambush.
I watched the show. Chris did the usual MSM talking points and Paul Ryan was well prepared for everything that Chris tossed at him. He gives me hope. I no longer fear the liberal tainted journalist debates.
I, too, watched it via my DVR, this am, after church. Chris W. was obnoxious, as usual, always baiting, always hoping for a "gotcha" but not with Paul Ryan! He is excellent under the stupidity of the questions Chris asked. I did manage to watch (sorrowfully) the panel and believe me, no one had anything good to say about Romney/Ryan. But they sure know what the R & R guys should do!!! I've stopped listening to Laura now. She's too opinionated, strident and really unlikeable since her man Santorum lost.
I watched and while Ryan did a decent job of holding his ground there were two huge openings that Ryan missed. The first was when Wallce asked about the tax cuts "costing" the government which Ryan gave the typical acceptance of the premise that tax cuts cost the government. It should have gone something like this: Wallace: how do you respond to the notion from the president that your tax cuts will cost the government x-trillion dollars Ryan: Criss, when you get your check from Fox, is it made out to the US Treasury or to Chris Wallace? Wallace: to me, but what is your point? Ryan: my point is that it is your money first and as a citizen, you along with other citizens elect representatives to decide how much of your paycheck the government needs to protect the interest of its citizens. I reject the premise that tax cuts " cost" the government anything
Ryan also missed the mark when Wallace opened the door about the media bias. What Ryan should have told him is that if the media was doing their job at actuall challenging Oboma on issues such as Fast andFurios and Bengaziy, those two alone would drive the polls 10 points to their favor if the media woul just seek the truth.
THis Thread renews my faith that more and more people are coming to the realization that more and more the Verbiage spewed on FOX NEWS is more and more slanted towards the LEFT. The "Far& Balanced" line is beginning to smell like a day old pile. It is becoming the whip that the conservatives are being flogged with. Their " Producers" and "Script Writers" are seemingly all Left Wingers. Listen how they couch their language.
I agree with #1. We changed the channel as soon as the panel was introduced. Laura Ingraham & Kristol, cannot be taken seriously any longer and the rest are total leftists. I agree #8. It will be so long FNC after this Election.
Paul Ryan is MORE than a match for the lefty-biased media because he knows the facts and tells the truth with clarity. The truth is exactly what both Romney and Ryan need to state in order to draw the sharp constrast with 0bama's dismal record for the past 4 years in office, his radical agenda & his documented failed policies which illustrate 0bama can't be trusted anymore.
Someone on FOX asked what Americans want from the Presidential debates. In a one word response: TRUTH!
We are locked in a generational war, which will get worse before it gets better. Indeed, it may not get better for a long time. No one wants to admit this, because it’s ugly and unwelcome. Parents are supposed to care for their children, and children are supposed to care for their aging parents. For families, these collective obligations may work. But what makes sense for families doesn’t always succeed for society as a whole. The clash of generations is intensifying. Last week, a federal judge ruled that Detroit qualifies for municipal bankruptcy. This almost certainly means that pensions and health
Sen. Ted Cruz defied critics angry that he eulogized Nelson Mandela and left for South Africa today as part of a 23 member congressional delegation going to honor the former South African president and anti-apartheid hero. “He endured decades of imprisonment and steadfastly continued his fight for equality. And, when justice prevailed in his battle against apartheid, and Mandela was elected president of his nation, he nobly chose reconciliation instead of retribution — a legacy for which he will be remembered forever,” Cruz, R-Texas, said. Cruz’s press secretary, Catherine Frazier, also rejected the arguments of those who criticized Cruz for lauding Mandela. “Mr.
The hero doctor jailed in Pakistan for helping the U.S. kill Usama bin Laden bared his frustration with the country’s tribal court system in a letter smuggled out by a supporter last week. “My legal right to consult with my lawyers is being denied,” wrote Dr. Shakil Afridi, who worked with the CIA on a vaccination ruse that helped confirm the Al Qaeda leader’s presence in an Abbottabad compound, paving the way for the May 2011 SEAL mission in which he was killed. The one-and-a half page letter, handwritten in Urdu and smuggled out of the Peshawar Central Jail, comes as Afridi
SAN FRANCISCO -- Even as Silicon Valley speaks out against the U.S. government´s surveillance methods, technology companies are turning a handsome profit by mining personal data and peering into people´s online habits. The industry´s profit machine has become tarnished by revelations that the National Security Agency trolls deep into the everyday lives of Web surfers. As a result, companies including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo are becoming more aggressive in their attempts to counter any perception that they voluntarily give the government access to users´ email and other sensitive information. Microsoft´s general counsel, Brad Smith, warned in a blog post last
WASHINGTON — For months, the Obama administration has heralded the low premiums of medical insurance policies on sale in the insurance exchanges created by the new health law. But as consumers dig into the details, they are finding that the deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs are often much higher than what is typical in employer-sponsored health plans. Until now, it was almost impossible for people using the federal health care website to see the deductible amounts, which consumers pay before coverage kicks in. But federal officials finally relented last week and added a “window shopping” feature that displays data on
Speaking to a forum on Middle East policy on Saturday, President Obama showed how cavalierly he regards his nuclear deal with Iran. Obama said, “We have to be vigilant about maintaining our security postures, not be naive about the dangers that an Iranian regime poses, fight them wherever they’re engaging in terrorism or actions that are hostile to us or our allies.” “But,” he added, “we have to not constantly assume that it’s not possible for Iran, like any country, to change over time. It may not be likely. If you asked me what is the likelihood that we’re able to
The National Security Agency isn´t the only government entity secretly collecting data from people´s cellphones. Local police are increasingly scooping it up, too. Armed with new technologies, including mobile devices that tap into cellphone data in real time, dozens of local and state police agencies are capturing information about thousands of cellphone users at a time, whether they are targets of an investigation or not, according to public records obtained by USA TODAY and Gannett newspapers and TV stations. The records, from more than 125 police agencies in 33 states, reveal: • About one in four law-enforcement agencies have used a tactic known
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
