Should Republicans unilaterally disarm in the media-bias wars? Joe Scarborough seems to think so. Arguing that it distracts Republicans from performing the political blocking-and-tackling needed to win elections, Scarborough has called on Republicans to "stop blaming the media." Saying "let's makes this personal," Scarborough cited as an example of the supposed distractions to which he was referring the controversy over the tape Morning Joe aired in September from a Romney campaign stop. Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan."
Joe thinks he is relevant. The only people who watch his show are leftists and a few RHINOS. His show is the excuse the left uses to prove they are open minded and see both sides. Just remember he works for MSNBC.

The media bias war may be the single most important battle Republicans MUST fight. Obama would never have won if the media had done its job. The cover up of the true scope of the Hurricane Sandy tragedy is criminal. Most of the nation believes that other than a few downed trees and some watyer in the subways Sandy was no big deal. Its not in the news so the response must have been a resounding success. Thanks to Obama of course.
The reality is far different, and with 500,000 still without power and a nasty bitter cold snowy noreaster hitting yesterday and today the misery of millions is compounded.
NY City is a disaster, and the media ignore it so the Won can look "presidential". Disgraceful.
The reality is the Republicans have a huge problem with the press. The supposed demographic shift can be attributed in part to this propoganda machine, control what the masses are allowed to know and you can control how they think.
We must find some way to destry the MSM, not balance out, destroy. They are the single most dangerous enemy a free America has today.
Joe, you are so, so wrong. Your media consistently and purposefully doesn't tell the "whole story" and scraps reports which do not favor 'your/their' candidate. That is dishonest and unfair to the American people. The truth is the truth is the truth. We Americans deserve it - whether you think so or not.
And, Joe, - once again - we hardly knew ye! What the hell happened anyway?? You and Chrissie would be good together on your own show and could make beautiful music together. I won't be watching, but 'go for it'.
I would love to see Lucianne.com become a Scarborough-free Zone. And while we're at it, a Matthews-free Zone. We don't want to live in an echo chamber, but what they say is of no consequence unless we pretend that it is and ruminate on it here.
I'm sorry but the second Media stopped reporting the news and began telling "the narrative", was when they stopped being neutral. The media is the first big fat target to be destroyed before the next election in 2014 so a Crowley doesn't get to moderate another debate. Preferably, she should end up in a homeless shelter, jobless.
No one is blaming the media. We are just stating the facts: You are liars, have no professional integrity, are incompetent, and ignorant. I am all for breaking up those cable packages -- let's see how long some of those liberal networks last without forced subscriptions.
Looking back we can all see that the media has always been biased toward the left. What Republicans need to do is start effectively fighting back which will mean not accepting their horribly biased questions. Wouldn't it have been fun if Palin had asked Charlie Gipson "Why the frowny face?" or "Are you feeling okay?" when he was sneering down his nose at her? Almost everyone watching would have cheered - we all like to see a snot taken down a peg. What if when Candy Crowley jumped in to save 0bama, Romney had quipped that maybe she would like to join 0bama at the podium and an audience member could take her moderator's seat? You can't fight the evil in the world if you're unwilling to fight the likes of Charlie and Candy.
I have never that show, whatever it is. I don't watch any of the popular media because it plays to a low common denominator. The internet is easy to filter for maximum content. Lucianne is one of my favorites because of this. But the popular media is the enemy of liberty. It is a strong force in the face of freedom. It is extremely biased and corrupt. But it doesn't share all the blame. If Romney really did get less votes than Mcain't then we really deserve zipp0.
Joe, who watches your show anyway? not many viewers, and very, very low ratings...pathetic. Nattily-dressed, overfed, scrubbed up "pseudoconservatives" need the general cure. Basically, prostituting yourself to be a tv coservative equals Tokyo Rose. Sad. I gave up Morning Joe long,long ago.
He is partially correct. First up the campaign managers and speechwriters, then the candidates themselves and finally a voting population that appears to have a population of fools and parasites that overwhelm informed voters. Of course the media and by that I mean anyone in a position to disperse information or entertainment which is the most appealing information, brainwashes dim viewers into sheeple. Orwell predicted it, we are living it.

I watch Morning Joe once in a while when I want to jump start my blood pressure for the day. Scarborough is so irrelevant and Mika is a mess. She makes so many faces I think she is doing facial exercises to keep her skin taut. Both of them are shills for the DNC and they can say what they want - but the media has become the Fifth Estate. They are subversive and I consider them enemies of America. I don't trust them one iota and neither should you.
When I was in high school, I joined the ROTC initially because I was attracted to the uniforms. I figured they would provide an opportunity to escape the constant berating by fellow students owing to my outdated clothing. I was fascinated with the guns and became an excellent marksman, winning several marksmanship awards. I also led a drill team, which was very advanced with the art of disassembling and reassembling military rifles in record time. I advanced through the ranks, eventually becoming the city’s ROTC executive officer and was offered a scholarship to West Point. I gained great respect for
SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are trying to determine what to do about a holiday display after a Nativity scene was taken down last week. Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Keavy Rake said Tuesday a Nativity display was set up Friday by a group of volunteers from the base chapel at a small lake on the installation. The site was near where a tree lighting ceremony was scheduled Friday evening. Rake says the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint about the display through the Air Force in Washington. Paul Loebe, spokesman for the foundation, said
Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will not extend current farm law if Congress can´t agree on a new farm bill before adjourning next week. House leaders have reserved space on their agenda this week for extending the current law until the end of January. Lawmakers fear that milk prices might rise sharply if dairy subsidies expire Jan. 1. The House and Senate have passed separate versions, but with widespread differences over crop subsidies and how much to cut food stamps. House Speaker John Boehner said last week that the House should extend the current law while negotiators seek
WASHINGTON — Majority Democrats in the Senate won approval Tuesday for one of President Barack Obama´s key judicial nominees, the first of his picks to win confirmation since they weakened the chamber´s filibuster rules. Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation´s second most powerful court. Both sides saw Millett´s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations. Obama praised
In response to Dylan Byers: MSNBC Is Everything the Left Accuses Fox News of Being: The Byers criticism of MSNBC was interesting and significant because it exists at all, but he´s still praising them with faint damn. He goes out of his way to drag Fox down to their level over and over again; he´s willing to concede that MSNBC might be as bad as Fox, when to any objective observer, there is simply no comparison. MSNBC is a gutter-dwelling performance-art interpretation of a shrieking-loon far left website, not a news channel with a high percentage of left-leaning opinion.
Environmental Protection Agency employees received light punishments for “employee integrity” violations and avoided prosecution when crimes allegedly occurred, according to the agency’s inspector general. The IG revealed a list of employee integrity violations that included assault, illegal possession of a weapon, and efforts to solicit improper personal payments from agency contractors, among other violations. Many received light punishments for the offenses, including ethics counseling, short leaves of absence, and informal discussions with supervisors. One employee was sentenced to 18 months of probation for attempting to carry a knife, stashed in one of his shoes, onto a plane. Despite the criminal prosecution, the
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry. The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support
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
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
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!”
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.
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
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
