Brit Hume on presidential polling:
‘There’s something wrong here’

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 11/6/2012 12:56:42 AM

On FNC’s “Special Report” Monday night, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said that many mainstream polls — which appear to indicate President Barack Obama will win a second term — may be fundamentally flawed. “My sense about this is fairly simple,” Hume said. “We’re looking at a national race, which is, for all intents and purposes, tied. We are looking at a set of state polls in the battleground states that suggests President Obama is leading — he is leading in most of these polls. And most reporters would look at that and say, ‘Well, if that’s the

The numbers on many of the polls just haven't added up. On the one hand they say that Republican turnout will be higher and on the other hand simultaneously to get their results they are assuming a greater Democrat turnout than in 2010 and even 2008. See also 'photo of the day' in that article. NOTE: there is a rumor that author Brad Thor states sources have told him the 0bama campaign is prepared to declare an 'early victory' in order to 'demoralize' Romney voters. Of course doing this themselves IMO would be stupid therefore they would require some press

No something stinks here, and it's not going to work. I know Dems want to influence votes in Colorado. An early call could keep Republicans home.

There is definitely something wrong. The powers that are behind the Obama administration are not going to relinquish power quietly. But there is a kind of silence...similar to their silence before the Roberts treason...as if they know something. Hope I am just being paranoid. Praying and voting in Alabama.

Maybe the polls are adjusted to account for the dead vote, illegal vote and multiple vote.

Roberts treason is a forerunner.
Christie's knee pads was another.
Remember when the press called Florida before the Panhandle voted and depressed the vote.
Obamunists know that this is their last chance to destroynAmeica.
they will not go quietly or legally.

If they do declare an early victory, they will depress the Dem. vote. Dems will decide that since O has won, why bother to go stand in line. Pubs know that's the plan. We are broken glass. We will NOT be fooled. Sorry.

I have pipe dream for this election

Suppose the hard left voters in Northern California say: "Obama is going to lose but this is a blue state so who cares?" and the democratic turnout in California drops by 25% for this election but the Republican turn out doesn't and Romney wins California by 0.5%

What are the chances of that?

The seeming absence of the October Surprise has been disquieting, as there was no way in hell the MSM/Obama campaign were going to allow a Romney win without pulling some form of election fraud to prevent it. But - perhaps we have already seen the October Surprise, and it's right before our eyes: months of rigged polling. I don't know, but something is indeed wrong here.

Gee Brit, you really think so?

Of course there is something wrong with the polls. Mot of them are managed by progressives who want BO to win. So they tweak the set up to favor BO who then manages to look competitive.

Let's go further than Brit dares to go. The enthusiasm for Republicans is hot while Pelousy just conceded the dems will not win back the House. How could they be doing so obviously bad in House races but BO be doing so well? Yet the polls are set as if a enthusiastic dem turnout is imminent. It isn't. Youth are gravely disappointed in BO. Many Blacks do not like his gay marriage stance. Hispanics have been ripped up by BO's economy. These folks are not going to joyfully run to the polls to support BO.

Next, Romney is winning Independents by about 60%. And there are far more of them this year (and far less dems). That is an insurmountable obstacle for BO. He cannot possibly win without majority Independent support. He will not get it.

Then we hear that the gender gap has disappeared. If BO cannot poll 14+% over Romney among women, as he did in 2008, he is toast.

ONE of these things are enough to sink BO. There are three or more. The real questions will be HOW the polls COMPLETELY failed to pin down the reality of the election? The question is rhetorical. We will have to listen to a night of media idiots astounded at the "unexpected" results. And at least a couple dopes will be talking about racism.

Brit, bless his heart, is losing it. He finally figures out, after the "didn't build that" speech, what Obama thinks about business.

Tonight, he finally figures out there is something wrong with the polls. What next Brit? Michelle has a big booty?

So sad, he used to be the best. Lost a few steps in last couple years.

One theory I have had is that these phoney polls showing the race to be so close are designed to hide the left's efforts to steal it through fraud. Which I firmly believe is the only way they can win it.

What's really tripped up the left is how good a candidate Romney turned out to be. They couldn't imagine him drawing an enthusiastic 30,000 crowd.T

he other thing that has to be eating the left's shorts is the race card isn't working. People have decided to put the future of the country ahead of their white guilt triggers.

The left has kept pushing and pushing the last 4 years.Gay this and that. Climate change this and that and healthcare this and that.

Pollsters have to work off of a model because polling has a scientific construct to it. You can't just make up a polling model out of this air.They couldn't figure out how to massage 2010 into it,so they just went with 2008.2010 was a blowback election and there's no way to measure the components that led to it or if it was a trend or spontaneous.

I think all the attention brought to fraud has suppressed the dem turnout.Even with the voter id laws thrown out,it created an awareness of cheating.

I don't think the polls/pollsters take into account the lying factor. I have been polled at least a half dozen times and have lied every time - strong O supporter here for each and every one of their 'polls'. I have been a member of every demographic group, age range, education level, what-have-you. I know of others who have done the same - I take perverse pleasure in helping instill false confidence in the 'message'. Call it my little means of 'revenge.' I for one cannot wait to see the collective medias' faces as that tingle up their legs turns into a gnawing at the pit of their stomachs....

There is something wrong about the unprecedented amount spent for political advertising. The symbiotic relationship between the mainstream media and the pollsters is disturbing. Question; Who benefits from declaring this to be a tight race? Answer; An establishment media which desperately needs the revenue.

The October surprise was on 9-11 but enough of treason for now.

Obama has the look and sound of a loser. They now Pennsylvania is truly in play. This election is breaking out to be a nightmare for Obama and the Dems.

If Romney takes down Pennsylvania, you can start smiling and enjoy a taste of your favorite beverage, say a prayer of Thanksgiving early.

If not, we need Ohio. I think Romney takes one if not both.

Too many well respected people calling this for Romney. Michael Barone is the best in the business. I don't think he's wrong.

Tonight many of us will be saying prayers of gratitude.
We can save our Republic.

Now let's all go out and make it happen.

.... I pray that even Democrats have grown tired of the fraud and treason practiced by the Obama administration.
.... That some will begin to consider the future of their children and grandchildren under Obama, whose allowance of Islamic terrorism is chilling.
.... That they will recognize that racism, seasoned with hatred, is promoted only by Obama and Thugs.
Some of them must have brains.
Some of them must care about freedom, which will end under Obama.

Good grief, His High Holy Saviorshipfulness is going to cheat and he is going to win. They know exactly which precincts to make sure get the dead votes and like St Louis and KC, the polls will be open until ten or midnight like they are EVERY single election so the buses from Illinois full of leftist Marxist useful idiots can vote for Obama. After this is over and the severe gut punch pain is almost gone, it will only be a story in the conservative media, the MSM will of course vilify anyone who remotely suggests voter fraud by calling them racists, etc, etc. The jaw dropping shock still won't change a thing for the next four years. 315 electoral votes for Romney? Please. The Saul Alinsky's are counting the votes and will for the rest of our lives. It's called consequences and I sure hope I'm wrong.

Take a look at what's happening in Nevada:

The Las Vegas Review-Journal won't allow postings on Lucianne.com (and in fact has threatened our hostess with lawsuits because of it), so you'll just have to read the source directly.

In a nutshell, there are many illegals here, working in hotels, and members of the Culinary Union. Most barely speak any English, and a local columnist, Glenn Cook, interviewed some of them who told him they were given papers to sign by their union officials - one of which was a voter registration - and then they were forced to vote.

Yes, forced. Somehow, union officials are able to learn who has voted, and who has not. And they pressure and coerce these immigrants with loss of their job and deportation if they don't go vote. Many of them even know it's illegal for them to vote in the U.S., but they need their jobs, so they go.

You may have heard references to this on Fox & Friends this morning. But this is not a new story - this is how Harry Reid got re-elected in 2010..... illegals being registered without their knowledge, and then intimidated into voting by threats to their employment.

Alas, our Secretary of State is a Democrat, and was part of Soros's Secretary of State Project from 2010.

Agree with most comments above. Of course there is something wrong with the polls! EVERY poll over-samples dems, some by a huge number. Zero can't get over 50%, undecideds and independants are largely breaking for Romney, the enthusiasm gap is huge for our side, Romney is a great candidate and looks/sounds presidential... need I continue? Romney will win Ohio, FL, VA, NC, MO, IA, WI, CO, and win the White House. This will be a good day indeed!

Of course the Waste Stream Media benefits from reporting a horse race, but that's not it. Like Rush says: if it ain't close, they can't steal it. An honest election would probably elect Mitt by at least 6%. Question: How many of these positive scenarios are washed away by unprecedentedly massive dem vote fraud? Answer: All of them.

The silent patriots stood in line for hours for a chicken biscuit.

The press cheated and called florida for Gore keeping many repubs in the pan handle home.

The press called 2004 prematurely for Kerry based on polling from the voting sights.

No way on God's green earth folks are going to listen to these polls that they don't answer because they don't want to or don't trust or are too tired from working to listen .

We are here and we will be heard today as in 2010.

The press and their polls have no credibility. They have sold themselves as prostitutes for the left.

And too many people are ready to take on the call for liberty in the only way they can . with their vote.

Check your vote before you leave the booth !!!!

If the Superbowl hype involved a team that was 3-13 and 13-3, there wouldn't be much to talk about. People wouldn't anticipate the match-up as much because they would assume it's going to be a blow-out. There'd be no way to make money and keep the commentary relevant.

Same concept at play here. The teams have to be hyped to be evenly matched to keep the interest up on both sides.

I think that works to Romney's favor. I don't care about the polls. And I pray that all efforts at voter fraud are supernaturally thwarted. And that the end result is a blowout for the good guys.

think the same thing, #14, #15, but I also think, Romney's team worked that out and worked out where to go for votes that would actually be counted. Also on our side, the vanity of the left will tend to prevent the Donks from guessing correctly how much cheating they need to do. Polling won't tell them because GOP aren't picking up the phone. We have a good chance. Vote, vote.

Polling accuracy and influences aside , if there are so many Americans living in big , run down cities and along the coastlines who can out-vote the entire rest of the country , the rest of the country will probably secede . Those of us who actually produce something will empower the likes of the TEA Party to operate our own government . The media and the panhandlers want a socialist country ?. We don't want any part of it . PS Don't come begging in the middle of winter when you have no heat , gas or food . And if you don't think it can happen here , well it did in the USSR .

I keep going back to a story that surfaced here several months ago that the Obama White House had spent $2mil on "polling" over the last year, and that was before the general campaign started. No one at the time could figure out why they were spending that kind of money so early on. Is it possible they had "paid off" the pollsters to fudge the numbers in their favor throughout the general? Inquiring minds want to know...

The media favor Obama. If they broadcast good or bad news for Romney, ignore it all the same and just go vote.

Twice (Bush 41 and Bush 43 in 2000) they called the Florida vote an hour before polls closed in the Florida Panhandle because they "forgot" that much of the conservative Florida Panhandle is in an earlier time zone than the rest of Florida. Bush supporters who thought Bush 43 had won ended up not voting because of it. Don't let them get away with hanging chads and cheating. Don't try to anticipate at some point how the election already over if you haven't voted yet.

If they call Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Florida for Romney by big margins, and you're in Ohio or Iowa, etc., ignore it and go vote. Don't try to anticipate how there's no remaining way for the media and Dems to create or exploit an opportunity. Even in California, add your bit to the national popular vote for Romney. Just go vote.

Look at individual aspects of these polls;

Most believe the country is on the wrong track;

The gender gap has pretty much vanished;

Romney gets better marks on the economy, which is the number one issue;

Romney has a consistent lead among independents in all the polls;

oblamer has never hit 50% in any of the realistic polls, which is usually death warning for an incumbent;

Yet the final polls are essentially tied? It doesn't add up.

Boy, I wish prozac was available over the counter. I could probably use some today.

I turned on MSNBC yesterday afternoon to check on their take of the election, and was dumbfounded to see they actually believed Obama would win. They quoted one poll, (I think it was Maris) that said Obama led by 14 points.
I called my English friend whose good sense I rely on, and babbled what I had just seen. SHe told me to turn it off. Keep it off! They were obviously mad.

I was at the polls in coral gables, Florida at 6:30am and there were about 30 people. By the time the polls opened at 7AM there were about 200 people. To me they al looked like liberals but maybe I am projecting. Every time I see a woman in her 40's with grey hair or a woman under 30 voting I assume they are liberals. I hope I am wrong. What was very strange was that I did not see one African American and yes they do live in the gables as well.

I have always had a lot of respect for Brit Hume, but lately.........he has said a lot of out of character strange things. Anyway, even Ann Coulter reported that Illinois might turn Red for Romney and I agree. Ask anyone who lives anywhere but Chicago.

Even if the polls were indicating Obama has a 20-point lead, I'd still crawl (if need be) to vote for Romney. I hope and trust all like-minded Americans will do the same. This election is far too important to keep any of us from voting AGAINST this arrogant, anti-America disaster of a man.

The job of the pollster is to INFLUENCE, not to INFORM.

All they need to do is make a difference of a few points and they have done their job--for the democrats.

Good morning my fellow Americans. Reporting in from Chesterfield, MA.

I arose before dawn, said my prayers and hustlted to the polling station. I was there at 6:20 before the poll workers were there. When they arrived they invited me in out of the cold. I waited half an hour to be the first to vote in my town of about 844 registerd voters.

I hid my good luck charm as you can't display them at the ....a tea bag and a pewter mitten on a necklace. I've worn them into work and been teased a bit...but you must be fearless in these things.


God Bless America
God Bless Miss Lucianne for all her efforts on our behalf and God Bless the Tea Party.

Obviously, the MSM-sponsored polls are (1) designed to show that Obama has already won, and thereby depress Republican turnout, and (2) signal to Democrats by how many votes they'll have to stuff the ballot boxes to win.

Didn't the Obama team threaten to sue Gallup when their polls came out favoring Romney? Perhaps it's not strange at all that polls now show a tie or an Obama win, even though the internals don't back that up. Self preservation is a strong motivator.

I love Brit Hume but Sunday I thought he was a real downer. He has lived and worked in Wash. DC for a long time and in the past, usually the polls were -give or take- somewhat reliable. What he misses now is that so many have cell phones and caller ID, and he also doesn't factor in the pollsters' (what I call) "Retaliation Factor".

IMO, the pollsters are deliberately over-polling dems in order to keep this race tight. In their polling I think they're finding Barry losing, but if they dare report the truth they will be forever painted by half the country as racists - and their polls will be less likely used in the future by left-leaning media.

It is far easier for them to come out Nov. 7th and say they didn't see the upswell of Repub. turnout - than for them to risk their future employment.

What a well-stated truth, #8. This is the neighborhood party season in our red state region. Bar-B-Qs in the park, block parties, etc.

Here we are in the midst of the most defining election in a century, and even with a few beers or glasses of wine under their belts, nobody is talking about it. No yard signs, no bumper stickers, no campaign buttons. The longest political conversation I've had with a neighbor was to ask if he'd seen the latest debate. "Yeah" was the answer.

It's what it must be like in small arms combat situations. When you're doing an ammunition inventory, discussing philosophy is pointless.

Sorry for 2nd post, but, a cautionary hint: while filling in the "oval" for my choices, I accidentially rested my pen on an "oval" below,and the machine rejected my ballot,twice, so the County Police officer called a poll watcher and I was given a new one,and voted again. The original ballot was placed in a green plastic bag and given to 3 poll watchers at a table. This was @ a polling place on the North Shore of MA.

Polls have ALWAYS sucked. Anyone believing them or relying on them are inherently stupid. ESPECIALLY any poll that has THE MEDIA involved. Over sampling Dems is just ONE of the SOP for them. LYING is another.

re: OP's: "NOTE: there is a rumor that author Brad Thor states sources have told him the 0bama campaign is prepared to declare an 'early victory' in order to 'demoralize' Romney voters."

RUSH should use this for his show today. That will make it very difficult for the WH to USE it. If they do, it makes Rush look good. Heaven FORBID!!

The propaganda media has been the public relations department of the Obama administration for the last 5 years.

I am sure they already have the stories set up and ready to go to provide continuing support of the "Incompetent Administration" of the Zero.

I pray Romney wins and this scum has to try and convince the people that they haven't been in Obamas pocket for four years.

That will be difficult because they have already proven they have no integrity or credibility.

The New Black Panther Party is back. I saw a video on Drudge that shows one man, dressed in black, opening the door at a polling place. He would not talk to the interviewer.

AND, according to the Washington Examiner, in Philadelphia GOP poll inspectors were ousted and replaced with Democrats - sanctioned by Democrat Election judges.

I voted this morning at 9:45 in Chesapeake, VA. There was no line, didn't think there would be, this is a "suburb" of Norfolk, lots of military at work at that hour. I penned my X's on the ballot a little too enthusiastically and the machine wouldn't accept it, the chief election official gave me a new one after writing in ink "void" on it. He had to look at my marks to figure out why the machine didn't like me, and then he immediately asked if I had ever thought about becoming an election official. I guess he liked all of my R's.

It's not a Bradley Effect. It's the Media Effect. A while lot of conservatives are fed up with the media. They know most polls are sponsored by the media and either refuse to participate or lie as a protest.

Remember 2004. First the polls told us it was going to be close. Then all day long we heard Kerry was well ahead. And Kerry, unlike Obama, had been drawing huge crowds at blue state campaign stops -80,000 in Madison where Obama drew 18,000 yesterday.

We tossed out so many Democrats at all levels in 2010.

Not sure I believe the country is as eager for more Democrat antics as their far left supporters are. It does seem as though the polls don't "fit" with how badly things are going for the country in general.

Posters who purport to know something about constitutional law should help us to determine their credibility (if any) by posting their credentials.

This is a republican form of government – not a judicial form of government. And, thus, the simple fact is that taxation is constitutionally permitted. If people don’t like the taxes levied by the Government, the constitutional solution is to elect new representatives.

BTW, inasmuch as under the Constitution all tax bills must originate in the House – and Obamacare had originated in the Senate (i.e., as a non-tax bill “mandate”) – Obama care is unConstitutional -- for this reason.

But nonetheless, those who know nothing about constitutional law have a duty to stop with their “Roberts’ treason” stupidity.

Why are the Black Panthers at polling locations in Philadelphia? Ostensibly "for
protection". WHO are they protecting/ Protection from what? Paper cuts? Ink pen leaks ? or something much more insidious.
Protecting their man from losing ! I voted in New York. There was NO ONE outside the polling location ( a church ). Exactly what purpose does anyone have outside a polling location, other than implied intimidation. Our polling location runs excellently, outside of the fact that we get no result when we vote, that is, we don't know what the
optical scanner reads and records, and I find that troubling. I want to insure that the people I voted for actually receive the votes.

One has to be careful about anything Brit says. As a FoxNews host he was excellent, He now is part time filling in for panels etc, He comes across to me as anti Romney . Really have you ever heard Brit say anything positive about Mitt ? To the nitties . There's something wrong and he is correct about the anomoly of neasrly a tie in most fringe states but then MSM screaming that Obama is winning in most controversial or border line states.A number of factors have been spelled out by others and basically a couple of groups will insure Romney is the final winner . Romney has mote independents, Reed's born again christians, Catholics the majority will not vote for Obama. If they get the voting papers in time the majority of service personnel will vote for Romney. Other factors The turnouts at some of Obama speech stops have been pitiful compared with 2008. For instance his stomp last night was half full.Compare it to Romneys overflow crowds that are packing his speech stops. Also Carl Rove is adamant that Gov Romney will be elected next President.Keep the faith.

Sheesh people. Right up until last night it was “ROMNEY LANDSLIDE!” – now it’s already over and -0-bama won?

There seems to be a major media shift today, with everyone hedging bets and suggesting a close -0-bama victory, apparently designed to suppress GOP turnout. -0-bama’s final rally was performed to a half-empty stadium. He has lost support among virtually every demographic from 2008. The economy is gasping at below 2%, unemployment is higher today than when he took office, gas prices are double what they were when he took office, his approval rating index is -8%, he’s offered nothing but the same for a 2nd term.

Go vote. Ignore the news if necessary. Romney will carry Florida and Colorado, and at least half of the other swing states. Statistically, with all of the states tied or within the margin, they will split. Romney doesn’t have to win them all, but he will win enough.

I would never never never let anything I see on either side discourage me from voting. The Obammunist could be polling at 40% up. Same thing if Romney were. I would still vote, no matter what. Seen too many election shenanigans now ever to do otherwise.

#7 - I don't think you're far off from the dream we share. The last CA poll, after the third debate, only had Obama at 53%. IIRC Obama got close to 60% of the vote in '08. The only Obama-Biden sign in town is in front of the Dem headquarters. I've only seen one Obama '12 bumper sticker, and two leftovers from '08. This is far different from Obama's immaculation year. No one is talking here, either.

Also, in the Dem primary election there were a million more dims that voted for Feinstein than voted for Obama. I think this signals a sizable number of California Dems that will not be voting Obama, whether or not they vote for Romney.

If Obama takes CA, it will be barely over 50%. Dare we hope for a West Coast Surprise? California Dreamin'.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story. Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. She was recently kicked off of her healthcare plan due to regulations passed as part of President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Peters voted in favor of. After relating her story publicly in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), Peters dispatched

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed. "....And this is all about hate.

It’s hard to understand exactly why Susan Rice is still refusing to admit fault about her lies about the Benghazi attack. When asked this morning on Meet the Press by David Gregory whether she had any regrets about appearing on four network news shows the Sunday after the 9/11/12 attacks that took the lives of four Americans and telling the nation that what happened was the result of a demonstration against a video, Rice said she had none: David, no. Because what I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine. The Putin government has shown no outward signs

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps. Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson. In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism. “If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

We have to have our own courts." With Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones sitting behind him, Farrakhan spoke for nearly three hours, reiterating the Nation

Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman is pushing for legislation that would ban openly gay athletes from the National Football League, spurred on by the recent news about Michael Sam publicly coming out. He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or
