The thrill is gone: networks refuse prime time slot for Obama speech

April 4, 2014
Feeling rejected.

Feeling rejected.

Oh, how this must pain the soul of our Narcissist in Chief. Remember the halcyon days of Hope and Change in his first term, when it seemed like he was making a national address every week? Joint sessions of Congress, prime time press conferences, the networks just couldn’t get enough Obama.

Someone cue B.B. King, because the thrill is gone, baby:

White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act.

But network officials refused to make the kind of accommodation they did previously for the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, for instance, and Obama was left instead cutting into the much smaller audiences of Ellen and other daytime shows.

Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the primetime slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular.

Oh, man. “No, you can’t interrupt NCIS. But, hey, we’ll let you cut into Ellen, champ.” How far our modern Icarus has fallen. Could it be even the major networks knew the 7 million sign ups “milestone” was just a bunch of smoke?

Regardless, it’s a sign both of the growing irrelevance of Obama as he moves further into lame-duck status and that the fight over this train-wreck of a law isn’t over, no matter how many they claim to have signed up. The major networks aren’t going to give up valuable commercial revenue just to satisfy Obama’s need to take a victory lap.

This calls for a song. Hit it, B.B.!

Though outraged, @AETV is happy to take “flyover folks’” money

December 20, 2013

My blog-buddy ST has already eloquently written about the intolerant, anti-Christian, anti-Southern bigotry behind A&E’s craven capitulation to liberal fascist pressure groups over “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s comments about sin and sinners, including homosexuality (1). Apparently, paraphrasing St. Paul’s first Epistle to the Corinthians is now enough to get one banned from television (2).

While ST has covered that angle admirably, I noticed something else. Last night I was watching a couple of episodes (coincidentally, I only started watching the day before this brouhaha exploded) of Duck Dynasty and stayed tuned in to catch another show called “Rodeo Girls.” As you can tell from the title, this show is not about a group of post-modern urban hipster liberals sitting around in their jammies, drinking hot chocolate and talking about healthcare. No, it’s about young, attractive women who compete in the rodeo circuit. (3) And the cultural similarities to Duck Dynasty got me wondering about the rest of A&E’s shows. (I don’t usually watch the network.) Let’s take a look at their line-up, shall we?

First, Duck Dynasty. Note that, as of today, Phil is still featured:

A&E Duck Dynasty

Next, American Hoggers. Just screams “Manhattan metrosexual,” doesn’t it?

A&E American Hoggers

Then we have “Crazy Hearts, Nashville.” A little country, a little sex:

A&E Crazy Hearts

But wait! There’s more! “Rodeo Girls!” Bikini-clad cowgirls riding stallions. (4) Yeah, I’m sure they’ll be lunching with Anna Wintour real soon.

A&E Rodeo Girls

Finally, we have “Storage Wars, Texas.” I wonder what they think of gun control and the individual mandate?

A&E Storage Wars

Notice a pattern? All these show involve people from what is disparagingly called “flyover country,” those lands beyond the pale the denizens of which the urban progressive elites like to patronize and treat like sub-normal children. And yet these are more than half the shows A&E has featured on their site. It seems pretty obvious that A&E is happy to promote shows featuring unsophisticated mouth-breathing hicks and earn money from the unsophisticated mouth-breathing hick audiences that watch, just so long as none of them express their unsophisticated mouth-breathing views.

Or maybe A&E’s honchos misread their audience:

Living in the echo chamber of the MSM’s ivory tower may well wind up costing A&E and their owners quite a bit.

Footnotes:
(1) To clarify, while I disagree with my esteemed co-blogger, Phil Robertson, and St. Paul about homosexuality being a sin, I respect their beliefs and wouldn’t want to ban them from the public square. Unlike A&E.
(2) No, I don’t think this is all that comparable to what happened to Martin Bashir. He spewed scatological, unhinged, hate-filled words at Sarah Palin. Phil just expressed his opinion in answer to a question, cited Scripture, and said it was up to God to judge. Huge difference.
(3) Watch out, Jessica! That Anthony is no good for you! (BTW, last night’s episode was set in Red Bluff, California. Not all of us are “L.A.” or “San Francisco” elitists.)
(4) Sigmund Freud, call your office.

A&E so offended by Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson that they’re continuing marathon airings

December 19, 2013

In fact, I watched some episodes last night: good stuff, and I’d swear I could recognize some of my own family in there. As for the controversy over Phil’s comments, A&E thoroughly beclowned themselves over this. Phil did not call for gays to be persecuted in any way: he merely stated his belief in the Biblical view that homosexuality is a sin and paraphrased a verse from Paul’s 1st letter to the Corinthians to illustrate it. He did not compare homosexuality to bestiality: he was listing a category of sins. I don’t agree with Phil or St. Paul on this, but it’s Phil’s right to hold that opinion and express it, especially when it was in answer to a question. A&E cravenly caved in to a liberal fascist pressure group, GLAAD, and fired someone for the crime of “wrong thinking.” (Mao would approve.) As I said last night on Twitter, “@AETV’s fundamental mistake: assuming the audience was laughing at Phil and his family, rather than identifying with them. #LiberalBigotry.” I think they’ll get a hard lesson in that when the huge audience that follows Duck Dynasty walks away.


Lawrence O’Donnell: How many firefighters were killed on 9/11 by Rudy Giuliani?

June 7, 2013

Phineas Fahrquar:

I’m convinced this guy must be some sort of a sociopath. No one with any human empathy could say this kind of crap.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell obviously hasn’t taken Twitter’s advice on tweeting while he’s, um, exhausted. His tweet tonight equating the 9/11 attacks with Benghazi might make sense if there weren’t copious evidence that the U.S. consulate in Libya had advance warning that terrorists were gearing up for an attack. And in retrospect, Mayor Rudy Giuliani could have told firefighters to stand down and not attempt a rescue at Ground Zero, and then gone to bed.

No, scratch that earlier point: there’s no way O’Donnell’s tweet makes any sense at all aside from it being a classic case…

#FastAndFurious: The Legacy Media can take lessons from Spanish-language Univision

October 1, 2012

Fast and Furious got results, all right.

With notable exceptions, such as CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson, the mainstream media has done a horrid job covering the deadly scandal of Operation Fast and Furious, the “gunwalking” operation in which the US Government allowed thousands of weapons to fall into the hands of vicious Mexican drug cartels. These weapons killed not only two US federal agents and but –as far as we know and with more sure to come–  hundreds of Mexican citizens. It’s a scandal of epic proportions, but not all that well known to many Americans because of the media’s desperate attempts to convince us that what is really important are Mitt Romney’s tax returns.

Enter Univision, which had already raised impressed eyebrows with its hard questions to Obama over immigration. On its Aqui y Ahora show last night, Univision aired a one-hour investigative documentary on Fast and Furious, “Rapido y Furioso,” that blew the lid off this fiasco and showed clearly its human cost:

On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.

Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers. Three of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), according to a Mexican army document obtained exclusively by Univision News.

Univision News identified a total of 57 more previously unreported firearms that were bought by straw purchasers monitored by ATF during Operation Fast and Furious, and then recovered in Mexico in sites related to murders, kidnappings, and at least one other massacre.

Read it all, there’s oh so much more. The ABC link also has a video excerpt with subtitles, the documentary’s first ten minutes.

At PJ Media, Bob Owens notes that the documentary shows that DoJ officials knew the weapons would only be recovered at crime scenes –after people had been killed– and just brushed it off as having to “break a few eggs.”

I wonder how the families of the victims feel about that?

Owens also highlights the information Aqui y Ahora presented on other possible gunwalking operations:

Operation Castaway, run with the same bloody-minded approach as Operation Fast and Furious, provided more than 1,000 guns to cartels via the Tampa ATF. Those guns leaked out across Honduras, Colombia, and Venezuela, according to the U.S. veteran who smuggled some of the weapons, Hugh Crumpler [6]:

“When the ATF stopped me, they told me the guns were going to cartels,” Hugh Crumpler, a Vietnam veteran turned arms trafficker, told Univision News. “The ATF knew before I knew and had been following me for a considerable length of time. They could not have followed me for two months like they said they did, and not know the guns were going somewhere, and not want for that to be happening.”

Univision also uncovered evidence of weapons being smuggled from Texas: two gun-smuggling programs similar to Fast and Furious are rumored to have put thousands of additional weapons in the cartels’ hands in operations larger than Fast and Furious. U.S. Senator John Cornyn has repeatedly pressed the Obama administration for information about the documented trail of weapons coming from two Texas ATF areas of operations. The Department of Justice has denied the existence of such programs, despite the physical evidence of guns recovered suggesting otherwise. While the Univision report focused on guns the DOJ ran to Mexican cartels, there is enough evidence to suggest other Obama administration-sanctioned gun-walking plots arming domestic criminal gangs, such as the so-called Gangwalker plot [7] in Indiana, which supplied Chicago street gangs, and similar rumored operations in California, North Carolina, northern Florida, and elsewhere, which provided weapons to gangs in U.S. cities. Nor has the Univision report focused on weapons that have found their way to cartels via the State Department [8] or the Department of Defense.

Echoing the thoughts of an Arizona sheriff, we have to ask, how does this not make complicit officials from the president down to the field agents “accessories before the fact?” In fact, let’s be blunt: supplying these weapons to armed gangs attempting to take over territory from the Mexican federal and state governments could easily be called an act of war. We already have hundreds of casualties!

Operation Fast and Furious is an absolutely monstrous scandal, the kind we’d dismiss as bad television, if we didn’t know it was real. People need to go to jail over this, and if the Mexicans care to file for extradition, I’d be happy to oblige.

Meanwhile, Univision and its reporters are once again to be congratulated and commended for refusing to be fawning sycophants and for committing real journalism.

Egyptian children’s show: “How do we answer the disgusting Jews?”

February 26, 2011

Another in our “Teach the children” series of posts on the misuse of children’s television to educate Muslim children in Jew-hatred. In this clip, the host of “Ammo Alaa” educates a toddler and a guy in a rabbit suit about why Jerusalem really belongs to the Arabs:

From the transcript:

TV host: Let’s see how we should answer the disgusting Jews, who say that Jerusalem belongs to them. What proof do we have that Jerusalem is Islamic? We tell our friends that… Am I making you fall asleep, Mr. Sa’d, or what? Wake up Sa’d… Have a carrot… First of all, we tell the Jews that the Arabs lived in the blessed city of Jerusalem, more than 2,000 years before the first Jew settled in there.

2,000 is a very big number. Not one year, not two, not ten, not a hundred – 2,000 years. That’s the first thing. We tell them that the Arabs lived in Jerusalem 2,000 years before the first Jew set foot in it. Okay? Okay!

Click through for more.

The highlighted portion is a frequent lie told in the Islamic world: the truth is that the site of Jerusalem had been inhabited since roughly 4,000 B.C. and that, by the middle of the second millennium B.C., it was a Canaanite city. It was conquered by King David around 1,000 B.C. — all this long before the Arabs came rampaging out of Arabia in the 7th century A.D.

But I guess that’s too complicated for a kid’s show and it wouldn’t fit the antisemitic narrative, so we’ll stick with the convenient lie, instead.

Bear in mind that this program aired in Egypt last December, not years ago, unlike the previous clip. Think this isn’t fertile cultural and intellectual ground for the Muslim Brotherhood?

Think again.

via MEMRI

RELATED: Along with “Mr. Sa’d” the sleepy rabbit, Islamic children’s TV has a nauseating habit of using cute animal characters to teach antisemitic lessons. In the past we’ve had Farfur the mouse, Nahoul the bee, and Assud the Jew-eating rabbit. (I wonder if he’s a cousin of Mr. Sa’d?)

I guess their motto is “Educating tomorrow’s genocidal maniacs — today!”

Teaching toddlers Jew-hatred

February 25, 2011

You want to know just how enlightened and tolerant the Islamic world  is? Watch as a Saudi Egyptian toddler on Iqra TV in 2002 is praised for how well she’s learned her lessons in antisemitism:

From the transcript:

Amer: How old are you, Basmallah?

Basmallah: Three and a half.

Amer: Are you a Muslim?

Basmallah: Yes.

Amer: Basmallah, do you know the Jews?

Basmallah: Yes

Amer: Do you like them?

Basmallah: No.

Amer: Why don’t you like them?

Basmallah: Because.

Amer: Because they are what?

Basmallah: They are apes and pigs.

Amer: Because they are apes and pigs. Who said that about them?

Basmallah: Our God.

Amer: Where did he say that about them?

Basmallah: In the Koran.

That toddler would be about 12 or 13, now. I wonder what other lessons she’s learned?

By the way, Iqra TV described its mission as:

“…presenting the true moderate face of Islam to people in the West where media does not present an objective view on the Islamic Law.”

I don’t know about “moderate, but it is an objective view of Islam.

Oh, and the accusation that a Jewess poisoned Muhammad is part of canonical Islamic teachings. Given the circumstances, I’m surprised only that she stopped at poison.

Ground Zero Mosque: should CBS have rejected this ad?

July 7, 2010

CBS has refused to air the following ad from the National Republican Trust, which I assume is a  Republican Party-affiliated group, opposing the construction of a large mosque just yards from Ground Zero, the site of the most devastating of the September 11th attacks. Before commenting further, I’ll let you watch it. Tito, roll tape!

It’s powerful and intense, no doubt. And anyone who’s followed this blog knows my feelings about Islam and the jihad against the West. And I do oppose building that mosque. But two questions remain.

Does this ad cross the line into religious prejudice and smear Muslims in general? No, I think it stays just this side of that. The message it conveys is true: there is a religiously-inspired war against us, that war is being fought in the name of Islam’s god and for the supremacy of Islam, and the massacre of 3,000 of us was launched by a Muslim group and carried out by Muslims for Allah’s sake:

Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.

(Qur’an sura 9, verse 111)

It’s also true that a mosque is a symbol of conquest and the supremacy of Islam. To place one at Ground Zero would be interpreted inevitably in the Islamic world as a victory marker. So the ad is right to object for this reason, too.

The other question revolves around CBS’s right to refuse to carry it. Recalling what’s happened in the last few years when someone has “offended Islam” (riots against cartoons, the murder of a filmmaker, a professor getting his hands cut off for asking the wrong question), one can understand if the managers there are afraid of the reaction to this ad. And they are a publicly-traded private company and can freely choose which commercials to accept and which to reject. So I think Big Peace is wrong to characterize this as a “ban,” which implies censorship. The ad is free to run elsewhere, such as YouTube.

But I still wish they had accepted it, because this ad raises important issues for both New York City and the nation that should be freely discussed. I suspect its rejection was born largely of fear, and it is the resulting surrender of the right of free speech and the tacit acceptance of dhimmitude that makes CBS’ rejection wrong. The corporation has both a moral duty and a self-interest in the defense of that right, and it should change its mind and run the ad.

Hamas in their own voices

February 15, 2009

There’s no need for us to expose them fascists and terrorists, to demonize them.

Not when we can let their own words do the job for us:

Meanwhile, Hamas continues its abuse of Palestinian children, using television to recruit them for terrorism. Meet Nassur the terrorist teddy-bear, the successor to Assud the Jew-eating rabbit, Nahoul the anti-Semitic bee, and Farfur the fascist mouse:

NAssur the bear

Teddy bear Nassur: I have come today to the Gaza Strip. Saraa, Allah willing, I will be one of the mujahideen, one of the fighters. I will join the ranks of the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, and I will wage Jihad among them and carry a gun. Do you know why?

Child host Saraa: Why?

Nassur: To defend the children of Palestine.

You can view the clip here. Registration is free. And here’s more about the cute Jew-hating animals of Palestinian children’s television. Saturday mornings must be so special in Gaza.

Pot, meet kettle

November 10, 2008

The other night I attended an event in Hollywood that featured the screening of a popular TV show, followed by a Q&A with the creator. I went with a friend because we’re working together on a spec script for that same show, and we figured it would be useful.

What I didn’t figure on was how annoying it would be.

We all know that Hollywood is dominated by left-liberals and Lefties, so, as this was the night after the election, some crowing over Obama’s win was to be expected. Fine. I’ve no problem with that.

What I wasn’t ready for was the level of knee-jerk bigotry exhibited by the moderators, audience, and the creator. They just couldn’t resist taking vicious, ignorant shots at Bush, McCain, Palin, and conservatives and Republicans in general. And their cluelessness about the nature of the enemy we’re fighting in this Jihadi War was appalling.  Not only was it completely off-topic for the evening’s program, but I’m certain it never occurred to them that they were doing those same intolerant things they accuse conservatives of, or that there might have been people in the audience who didn’t share in the group-think.

I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or get angry, so I quietly did both.

As screenwriter Roger L. Simon at Pajamas Media has often pointed our, the most closed-minded people and biggest reactionaries are so-called Progressives.

Meanwhile, I have to wonder if I fit in such a world. It certainly was an eye-opener.

Whoopi Goldberg: ignorant or deceitful?

September 12, 2008

 

This morning on The View, Whoopi Goldberg asked John McCain the following question regarding his desire for strict constructionist judges:

   

Goldberg, who joined the show as moderator in 2007 replacing Rosie O’Donnell, then asked, "Did you say you wanted strict constitutionalists? Should I worry about being a slave? A return to slavery? Because there are things in the Constitution that (should have changed.)" 

Umm … Whoopi? You may not be aware of it, but there’s this little thing called the 13th amendment to the Constitution. It reads

   

Amendment 13 – Slavery Abolished. Ratified 12/6/1865.   

1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.   

2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

This may come as a shock to you, O Mighty Talk-Show Hostess, but slavery is banned by the Constitution. The 13th amendment is part of the Constitution. No judge, no court, strict constructionist or otherwise can change that fact.         

So, which is it? Are you really this ignorant, or were you telling a cheap lie to mislead your viewers? Raised Eyebrow

Religion of Tolerance watch

September 12, 2008

You know, there have been plenty of times when TV programs or commercials have made me mad, but I never thought I could kill the station owners over it.

How wrong I was:

Saudi Arabia’s top judiciary official has issued a religious decree saying it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV networks that broadcast immoral content.

The 79-year-old Sheik Saleh al-Lihedan said Thursday that satellite channels cause the "deviance of thousands of people."

Many of the most popular Arab satellite networks — which include channels showing music videos often denounced as obscene by Muslim conservatives — are owned by Saudi princes and well-connected Saudi businessmen. Al-Lihedan did not specify any particular channels.

Al-Lihedan is chief of the kingdom’s highest tribunal, the Supreme Judiciary Council. Saudi Arabia’s judiciary is made up of Islamic clerics whose decrees, or fatwas, on everyday issues are widely respected. Their fatwas do not have the weight of law. In the courts, cleric-judges rule according to Islamic law, but interpretations can vary.

Al-Lihedan was answering listeners’ questions during the daily "Light in the Path" radio program in which he and others make rulings on what is permissible under Islamic law.

One caller asked about Islam’s view of the owners of satellite TV channels that show "bad programs" during Ramadan.

"I want to advise the owners of these channels, who broadcast calls for such indecency and impudence … and I warn them of the consequences," he said.

"What does the owner of these networks think, when he provides seduction, obscenity and vulgarity?" he said.

"Those calling for corrupt beliefs, certainly it’s permissible to kill them," he said. "Those calling for sedition, those who are able to prevent it but don’t, it is permissible to kill them."

(Emphasis added.)

Boy, the people responsible for reality TV had better watch out…

CBS premiered Moonlight last night, a series about a private detective in Los Angeles, who happens also to be a vampire. I’ve been looking forward to this show. What did I think?

Short version: ick.

Longer version: the camera work was amateurish and annoying, the writing was clichéd, and the acting wooden.

Summary: It looks like a typical Sci-Fi Channel series, not something from a major network. I’ll be surprised if it lasts half a season.

Why am I not surprised?

May 10, 2007

I posted yesterday about the disgusting use of a Mickey Mouse clone to promote hatred and Islamic supremacism on Palestinian television. At the same time, I noted that Palestinian authorities had promised to take the show off the air.  Guess what?

They lied.

A Hamas-run television channel has defied a Palestinian government request to axe a controversial children’s cartoon in which a Mickey Mouse look-alike urges resistance against Israel.

A senior official working for Al Aqsa (Jerusalem) television in the Gaza Strip said that the program – “Tomorrow’s Pioneers” – would air as normal this Friday in defiance of information minister Mustafa Barghouti.

“The program will continue and it will be broadcast tomorrow at 4.00 pm [1300 GMT]. Mustafa Barghouti misunderstood the issue,” said the official on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the press.

The article does point out that the TV station is defying the Information Minister’s orders and, since Minister Barghouti is one of the few relative democrats in the Palestinian government, it can be argued that this is just another example of chaotic PA politics and not government policy.

Don’t kid yourself. The al-Aqsa TV station is owned by Hamas, and Hamas is the senior partner in the government. It holds most of the ministries, including the Prime Minister’s office. If the government were truly shocked and appalled by Farfur the Mouse’s Islamofascist ravings, that program would be off in a wink. Instead, the government can order the program off, the station refuses, and the government then throws up its hands and pleads there’s nothing it can do.

Bunk. Barghouti is nothing more than a blind to cover for the Hamas-led government’s policy: Islamic supremacy, hatred of Jews, and the destruction of Israel.
