Liberal Bias Central to

Politico writers Jim Vandehei and Mike Allen are on to something with their feature published today about President Obama’s mastery of the mainstream media. Their conclusion that the president and his staff have broken new ground in manipulating journalists and shaping favorable coverage of the administration is so obvious that it is almost inarguable. As I have argued several times over the past four years, no president since John F. Kennedy has enjoyed the sort of advantage or lack of serious scrutiny that the president has received. Vandehei and Allen are right when they point out that the calculated leaks

They are so afraid of being called racist that they bend over backward to praise anything he does...be it right or wrong.....

Prior to the first election of Sen. Obama to President...it was obvious that the US media was overtly for Obama. Since then the US media has been acting more like a Obama PAC every day...except for Fox News. I watch Fox News most of the time since I am a moderate Republican and like Fox programs,hosts,and anchors. Yes...there is media bias and it is destructive.

There is no media. There is a propoganda arm of the Democrat Party who think it is their duty to promote their leftist agenda, and there is the rest of us.

The DNC media goofs are what they are. They are people who have spent their lives in support and promotion of the ´Rat party. As I understand it, most of those in their position are people who failed out of some other course in college and finally ended up in "journalism". The saddest observation is that in the past 100 years there have been throngs of people who took them seriously.

I heard a fellow talking once who was a reporter in the thirties and who sent sent stories out of rooms set up for the press, and he never met another reporter during the whole of the depression who wasn´t a supporter of FDR. Can you say, "DNC media goof"?

Part of it may be that prominent individuals (Walter Cronkite, e.g.) hid their bias much better than his counterparts today do. It also may be that we were systematically duped in the old days, with no Fox or electronic media to counter the lies, obfuscations and omissions. Either way, the current situation is appalling.

If we cast our minds way back to late summer of 2008, Sean Hannity was saying then that the media was dead, that it had committed suicide by 0bama. It took the so-called journalists at Politico a presidential golf trip 5 years later to figure it out?

Powerful, Influential Media Giant, yet Somewhat Kiddingly Self-Acknowledged “Just a Simple Man” Bill O’Reilly, is world-famous for his many in-your-face facets. Not the least of his aspects is his frequently interrupting and brashly talking over people on his Factor TV program when he deems they are bloviating, reverting to talking points or simply drifting off topic. He doesn’t even hesitate to insult intelligent, accomplished, professional speakers such as Brit Hume, Laura Ingraham, Bernard Goldberg or even the esteemed Dr. Charles Krauthammer, just to cite a handful. Those people most assuredly deserve better than his offensive, impertinent rudeness. He deserves having his enormous, overinflated ego publically punctured with the nearest sharp implement. In his case, a pin would be most appropriate inasmuch as O’Reilly is also world-famous for frequently being fixated on the pejorative “pinhead.” Someday someone is bound to finally be afforded the opportunity to get a word in edgewise. Or perhaps not. By the way, when was the last time the liberal media reported, much less highlighted, an incident whereby a gun prevented a crime from taking place or saved an innocent life? I can’t remember. Can you?

Our Republic cannot survive without an adversarial press- that´s the point. What we call "the press" hates our Republic as much as Obama does. They are only too willing to be his vanguard of Orcs in our destruction. We´re Americans. They are not.

It used to only be bias but that has morphed into media activism. When you photoshop and outright lie it´s more than bias. Let´s shift our lexicon from media bias to media activism, or someting better perhaps. Bias leaves room for them to be simply predisposed, wrong, rather than reflecting on intent which is abundantly evident.

Too much whining for my taste. Reagan survived the media before alternative media and so did Nixon (insofar as he was re-elected) Since the dawn of Rush Limbaugh, we have lost 4 of the last 6 POTUS elections outright, and lost the popular vote in 5 of 6.

That´s coincidence, #20, not cause & effect. And Nixon and Reagan faced very different electorates from what we have today. Even RR would have rough going trying to sway the ignorant, greedy and sybaritic mobs who seem to make up a small majority of today´s voters.

Sadly, JFK still has not faced scrutiny even in history books. Based on that experience - most of us will be long dead before the main stream media faces up to what Obama has done wrong. And considering that the MSM still has not faced up to what FDR did wrong which turned a recession into a depression - I have to wonder if it will actually ever happen.

They say we are supposed to learn from history. But when history is written by those who made the mess and they wrote it to absolve themselves of any of the blame - there isn´t much left to learn from history.

2)Ignored
3)Made to work at NBC
4)Ridiculed Incessantly
5)Told to shut up forever

There thats a good start...now the same for Beckel, Williams, Powers, and all the other democrat rat "strategists" and guests who stink up that sorry excuse for conservatism, Fox News! Give us just one bleepin´ REAL conservative news station and watch it jump to NUMBER ONE instantly!!!

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
