Paul Ryan: ‘We expected
media bias going into this’

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/30/2012 12:40:48 PM

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.

Agree with #1. Chris Wallace did all he could do to bait Paul Ryan. Sure would like to see him replaced. Hard to watch.

Paul Ryan did great.

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!

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

$3B Sunken Treasure?
Questions Over Whether Hunt

Are platinum ingots worth $3 billion sitting on the ocean floor, 50 miles northeast of Cape Cod? The United Kingdom--owners of a torpedoed WWII freighter said to have been carrying that cargo (plus jewels, gold and silver)--would like to know. So, too, would a group of U.S. investors who have sunk $8 million so far into the salvage effort, without having much to show for it. The Maine Office of Securities this week announced it will be seeking information from Maine residents who invested in—or were approached about investing in—Sea Hunters, L.P., and two other companies associated with Greg Brooks, the treasure

What Happened to the Tea Party?
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/17/2014 4:50:07 AM     Post Reply
It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear. The nurse handing over my garb calls it my "space suit." I can´t help but think that going into an Ebola

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell. "This particular ferry was built in Japan, who make some of the best ships in the world. It wasn´t anywhere near full and it was travelling a well-worn

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
