White House Checks Google, Bing
for Breitbart Coverage of Scandals
Breitbart Big Journalism, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 5/7/2014 10:55:27 AM     Post Reply
From the Washington Post: One of the biggest challenges for the White House and other political leaders in the future will be grappling with algorithms on search engines and social networks that use a person’s online history and habits to shape results. “What all these things are doing is narrowing the range of options that you’re going to be exposed to,” said Baum, the Harvard professor. (Snip) “What’s the first page on Google and Bing look like? Let’s take Benghazi,” Pfeiffer said, referring to the partisan battle over the administration’s response to the attacks on U.S. facilities in Libya in

Obama´s top advisers set to
spill insider details

WASHINGTON- Over the next month, two of President Barack Obama´s closest first-term advisers will spill insider details on the administration´s handling of the early days of the Great Recession, the White House´s cautious response to the Syrian civil war and the genesis of clandestine talks with Iran. The back-to-back memoirs from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and ex-Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will be the latest installments in what has become an often awkward Washington ritual: one-time confidants signing big book contracts to examine a presidency that is still ongoing and policy decisions that are still being implemented. Clinton and Geithner´s

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said the special committee he´ll lead on Benghazi could continue into the 2016 campaign, when Hillary Clinton might be running for the White House. Asked about that posibility Wednesday on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," Gowdy said the length of his work would depend on the administration’s level of cooperation. “It would be shame on us if we intentionally dragged this out for political expediency,” said Gowdy, the special committee´s chairman. “On the other hand, if an administration is slow-walking document production I can’t end a trial simply because the defense won’t cooperate.” Clinton is a key figure

GOP´s Point Man on Benghazi
Is Seasoned Prosecutor

WASHINGTON- Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republicans´ newest point man on the Benghazi attack, is a seasoned prosecutor determined to apply his well-honed courtroom skills to an election-year examination of the Obama administration´s actions. Tapped by House Speaker John Boehner, the two-term South Carolina congressman will lead a special select committee investigating the chaotic night of Sept. 11, 2012, when extremists attacked the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Libya, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Multiple independent and bipartisan investigations have faulted the State Department for inadequate security at the mission and the military´s lack of assets in the region.

With the recent revelation of Trey Gowdy being chosen to chair the Benghazi Select Committee, Nancy Pelosi is hoping for political equality. She issued a statement saying: “If this review is to be fair, it must be truly bipartisan. The panel should be equally divided between Democrats and Republicans as is done on the House Ethics Committee. It should require that witnesses are called and interviewed, subpoenas are issued, and information is shared on a bipartisan basis. Only then could it be fair.” Trey Gowdy responded to Pelosi’s request in an interview with Fox News: “Well, I certainly hope the

White House looking for new ways

When most Americans turn on their televisions at night, they expect their meteorologists to get the forecast right, or at least try. That level of trust is one reason President Obama and his staff spent hours Tuesday giving top weather forecasters the royal treatment — a briefing in the Roosevelt Room with multiple Cabinet secretaries and senior officials on a major new report on climate change, plus Rose Garden interviews with the president.It was the White House’s latest attempt to penetrate a polarized media climate where Americans increasingly read and view — consciously and unconsciously — material that matches their

WASHINGTON — Monica Lewinsky says she would meet me for a drink. I’m game. In her new meditation in Vanity Fair, Monica mashes Hawthorne and Coleridge, proclaiming that she’s ready to rip off her “scarlet-A albatross,” “reimagine” her identity and reclaim her narrative. At long last, she says, she wants to “burn the beret and bury the blue dress” and get unstuck from “the horrible image” of an intern who messed around with the president in the pantry off the Oval Office, spilled the details to the wrong girlfriend and sparked a crazy impeachment scandal.

Iowa´s Mark Jacobs: ´Did he

Millionaire Iowa U.S. Senate candidate Mark Jacobs is getting attention this morning for saying in a national TV news interview that he doesn´t think members of Congress make much money. Asked by MSNBC´s Kasie Hunt during an interview in Des Moines over the weekend if he´d give up his U.S. Senate salary because he´s wealthy, Jacobs answered: "I don´t think U.S. senators make that much money." U.S. senators are paid $174,000 a year. Fewer than 10 percent of Iowans make that much, Hunt noted during the segment, which aired this morning on "Morning Joe."

Ten IRS scandal Excuses That

With Lois Lerner facing a contempt of Congress vote Wednesday, and coming up on the one-year anniversary of the IRS conservative-targeting scandal (this Saturday all cocktails consumed in America will be a tax write-off, The Daily Caller has decided), it’s time to take a look at the pro-IRS case. What have we found? There isn’t one. Every defense put forth by the Obama administration and its allies in the Democratic Party and the media has now been disproved and discredited. No, we’re not talking about Jay Carney’s “fake scandal” line or Obama’s “not even a smidgen of corruption” talking points.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took bold action on the Senate floor yesterday, requesting votes on his proposed legislation to stop the IRS´s targeting of citizens based on their political actions. Cruz said that if Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) blocks the legislation from being voted on, he will not consent to the passage of Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) STOP Identity Theft Act, bill S. 149. Cruz argued that Reid continues to disallow Republican-sponsored bills to be voted on by the body of the Senate. “It was roughly ten months ago that the Inspector General of the Department of Treasury concluded

WASHINGTON — Thom Tillis won the GOP Senate nomination North Carolina on Tuesday, delivering a big win to establishment Republicans over Tea Party insurgents. Tillis, speaker of the North Carolina House, easily got over the 40% threshold needed to avoid a runoff in the closely watched Senate primary. Obstetrician Greg Brannon, who had the support of Tea Party favorite Rand Paul, was coming in second in the eight-person field as results were being reported by the Associated Press. The North Carolina Senate race was the first primary contest pitting the Tea Party and grass-roots conservatives vs. mainstream Republicans. The skirmishes will

The Republican establishment gloated after three underfunded Tea Party challengers failed to knock off incumbent Republicans in primaries on Tuesday while another establishment-backed candidate secured the GOP nomination for Senate in North Carolina. "Next up is that fraud @MattBevin! #GOP,” tweeted Jahan Wilcox, a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who is now the RNC´s director of rapid response. (He later deleted it and said his thoughts were his “personal opinions.”)Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) defeated her primary challenger Frank Roche despite a series of high-profile outbursts in support of amnesty. Ellmers was heavily backed by Facebook co-founder Mark

Emily Letts, a counselor at a New Jersey abortion clinic, decided to film her own abortion and post it on YouTube as a form of positive inspiration to women who are contemplating having the procedure but worry that they might feel guilty afterward. Letts has no such guilt. She recalls the procedure with fondness. She even describes it as “birth-like,” and said it made her feel good, just like giving birth would. Letts, whose job involves encouraging women to have abortions, sees her own abortion as an entirely positive experience, and hopes the video will prove to be both instructional and morally

The National Climate Assessment released today by the White House says that as a result of climate change the sea level could rise 8 inches, 11 inches, 4 feet or 6.6 feet by the year 2100, but that a rise of less than 8 inches or more than 6.6 feet is "considered implausible." “Scientists are working to narrow the range of sea level rise pro­jections for this century,” said the report. “Recent projections show that for even the lowest emissions scenarios, thermal expansion of ocean waters and the melting of small mountain glaciers will re­sult in 11 inches of sea

The news for Democrats, already bad this year, just got worse. Consider this story in the USA Today: A nationwide USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll shows the strongest tilt to Republican candidates at this point in a midterm year in at least two decades, including before partisan “waves” in 1994 and 2010 that swept the GOP into power. Though Election Day is six months away — a lifetime in politics — at the moment, Democrats are saddled by angst over the economy, skepticism about the health care law and tepid approval of the president. The specific data point worth focusing on is

Hillary Clinton has mostly steered clear of contentious domestic political issues in recent years, but on Tuesday, she said gun laws need to be reined in. Speaking at a National Council for Behavioral Health conference outside of Washington, Clinton was asked about the role guns play in suicides. While Clinton said she supports Second Amendment rights, she added that there needs to be a proper trade-off between safety and freedom, and that things have swung too far toward the latter. "I think again we´re way out of balance. We´ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that

Just over half the nation wants further investigation into the September 2012 terrorist killings of American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, in part because an even larger percentage of the country does not believe that President Obama´s team has told the full story about the simmering scandal. Rasmussen Reports revealed in a new poll that 51 percent want the investigation to go forward. The House last week ordered up a special panel to investigate the killings of the U.S. ambassador and several others and how the administration handled the crisis. Worse for Obama, Rasmussen found that 59 percent feel it is

Nancy Pelosi issued a statement this morning on the soon-to-be-formed House Select Committee to investigate Benghazi. Byron York comments: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is complaining that the new select committee on Benghazi will have more Republican members than Democrats. “If this review is to be fair, it must be truly bipartisan,” Pelosi said in a just-released statement. “The panel should be equally divided between Democrats and Republicans, as is done on the House Ethics Committee.” Is that a reasonable request? Not if precedent is a guide: In 2007, the House created a Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, egged on by his parents and brother, former President George W. Bush, is seriously considering a 2016 bid, according to sources close to the Republican. They claim that Bush wants to run but will test the waters to gauge the reaction to his ideas, such as immigration reform and support for the controversial Common Core education standards, and his last name. He is also wants to see reception of his wife and family, who they said are not keen on him running. Bush has said he would try to make his mind up by the end of the year, but has now become more serious about testing his ideas in public.

He said that in the past he had admitted the White House engaged in politics in the wake of Benghazi, but maintained that the ones doing the real political exploitation are the Republicans, saying “What the Republicans have done is turn four dead bodies into a political act that they can play off of.” Beckel also said that “any Democrat who shows up on this committee oughta have their Democratic registration taken away
