CBS ran a puff piece Friday morning on President Obama´s visit to hurricane-ravaged Staten Island, which stood in stark contrast to its hostile treatment of President Bush´s visit to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. CBS played into the Obama PR strategy, simply noting that he "pledged the government´s support" to Staten Island residents and "met with families who´ve lost everything." In addition, they aired his plea for the insurance companies to support the victims, afterward quoting residents who were upset with the insurance companies. Meanwhile, CBS had no such love for President Bush in 2005 when they reported

To be honest, what good do these articles do anymore? We all know exactly what the "press" is made of. NB has been operating 24/7 for at least 5 years. Have they shamed them into changing? No. And they just won big time. We need much more effective opposition.
S---- them all........I have no respect for them, love the fact that their numbers are going down dramatically (and obviously a vast number of Obama voters never read anything about the country to begin with, so they don´t watch) and hope Candy Crowley in particular finally discovers that there is a world that now dismisses her, unlike CNN who praised her debate performance.
Obama was annointed by the MSM and now they have to keep the lies going. I don´t see how they sleep at night. What will they tell their children when they grow up and have to live in the "new" America that has been created by Comrade Obama?
The country remains saturated with the relentlous dem biased spoon-fed propaganda pabulum spewed 24/7 from the lsm/alphabets/hollyweird. Younger people have never known anything different. More´s the pity.
Boy, that didn´t take long, did it? The Washington Post announced Wednesday that MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow would be writing a column for the paper once a month, and on Thursday, there was her first piece. Any guesses on the topic? Bashing George. W. Bush, of course. What would you expect from this unapologetic liberal shill? Titled "How George W. Bush Failed The GOP" - clever, isn´t she? - the piece rips the former President for not leaving behind members of his administration that have subsequently amounted to anything in the political arena:In the eight years of the George W. Bush
Following news that Maroon 5 frontman and People-anointed Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine will be stumping for Healthcare.gov, National Review editor Jonah Goldberg figured there must be a couple of people who will be swooned into health care coverage by the scribe of “Moves Like Jagger.” “It might work at the margins,” Goldberg told Fox News. “I am sure there some truly unfortunate souls out there who think the lead singer from Maroon 5 is the guy to take health care advice from.” Goldberg said the bigger issue for the Obama administration was not getting young people to sign up
If there’s one off-the-cuff remark that will follow Chris Matthews for the rest of his career as a pundit, it has to be time time in 2008 when he said, in reference to a speech by then-candidate Barack Obama, “I felt this thrill going up my leg.” It’s the one line for which conservatives love to make fun of him most, and he knows it. During a Wednesday evening debate over divisions within the Republican Party, Matthews chose to voluntarily reference the infamous quote and defend the sentiment behind it. Republican strategist Steve Schmidt was denouncing the current state of
Obama is running from Obamacare to his zone of strength and core value: class warfare. Democrats are geniuses at playing on group identity. When I ask friends what principles lead them to vote Democrat, it is a hard question for them. After a baffled pause, I often hear this: "Republicans are the party of the rich." It is said as if that is all that needs to be said: not like me, exploiting people, bad for the country. Not my party. As the liberal Howard Dean says, many Republicans "have never made an honest living in their lives." Democrats have
Senate Republicans on Wednesday launched an around-the-clock talkathon over some of President Obama´s nominees in the wake of a new, Democratic-driven rules change last month that weakened the GOP´s ability to block nominations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., threatened to hold the Senate in session through the night to deal with 11 nominations, most of them non-controversial. Republicans retain the power to use up all procedural time, including post-cloture debate time on nominees. If Republicans refuse to give up their allotted debate time, the Senate could be in session continuously into Saturday -- or longer. "If we have to
CHICAGO-- Chicago will soon host a sculpture that’s both inspired and angered viewers around the world, reports CBS Chicago. CBS affiliate station WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports “Homeless Jesus” will be installed Friday outside the Chicago offices of Catholic Charities. Canadian sculptor Tim Schmalz said Pope Francis has blessed the statue, but two cathedrals have rejected his bronze image of Jesus on a park bench. “Imagine a life-sized figure totally wrapped up in a blanket, or a sleeping bag, with the only thing visible the feet of the figure,” he said. “If you look in the feet, you actually see
Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received a lot of hate since missing three field goal attempts in his team’s stunning loss to Auburn, but he has at least one fan: former President George W. Bush. The 43rd president reportedly sent Foster a personalized letter encouraging him to press on through life’s challenges. “Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks. I know! However, you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely, another 43, George Bush,” the letter reads. Foster posted a picture of the letter to his Twitter account Wednesday. Foster was inundated with
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
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!”
