(Video) If the modern MSM had reported on D-Day

June 6, 2017

I laugh, because I know it’s true. You will, too.

I’m still trying to figure out if this is a satire, or a documentary.

(Video) Remember “Hands up, don’t shoot?” It was a lie, and the media ran with it

March 20, 2015

From the Media Research Center:

There are exceptions, but so much of the MSM is corrupt, but in their minds they don’t think of it as corruption, because they’re “fighting for justice,’ which is more important than the truth.

They don’t give a damn about the truth.


In which Newt eviscerates CNN’s John King

January 20, 2012

There’s no other way to describe it: John King, moderating last night’s debate in Charleston, SC, opened with a question about salacious allegations made by Gingrich’s second ex-wife. The former Speaker then gutted King and the MSM in front of the entire nation, calling them out for their biased coverage. It was a thing of beauty, an instant classic. The only thing missing was King falling to his knees in tears to beg for mercy.

Enjoy, my friends:

Now, I’m not much of a fan in Gingrich, though I admire his intellectual acuity; he has a lot of good ideas (and a lot of bad ones). But, were he to become the nominee, I would so look forward to the debates with Obama. The president would be reduced to a quivering mound of Jello.

And I’d need extra popcorn.

Katrina was newsworthy; Midwest floods, not so much

And the difference seems to be the letter after the President’s name, in this case a D instead of a R.

At Pajamas Media, Roger Kimball thinks back to the hysteria-laden criticism of the Bush administration during and after Hurricane Katrina and, in a photo essay, wonders why everyone is so quiet, now. Here’s one sample:

To which Roger asks:

Why is the MSM not demanding to know where are the FEMA trucks and trailers and food services?

Good question. Click through for more.

Afterthought:

And yet Sarah Palin’s email records as governor are so important that the MSM goes into a feeding frenzy and begs the public for help? Seriously?


But don’t they know the Tea Party is RAAAACIST?

A hostile media finds itself befuddled by Black Conservatives:

They must be Uncle Toms; it’s the only explanation. It couldn’t be that they’ve allied with conservatives out of genuine shared belief.

Nah. Thank Heaven the press is there to give us the straight facts without any editorializing.

Media bias? Surely you jest!

May 8, 2010

At Pajamas Media, Bob Owens has a good article on the double standard of the mainstream media when it comes to covering politically motivated violence:

During the recent health care debate in Congress, the media was quick to latch on to every perceived slight or hurt, real or imagined, directed at Democrats. They offered wall-to-wall coverage of phoned-in threats of violence against Democratic representatives, even as they hastened to downplay the stray bullet that crashed through an office belonging to Republican Eric Cantor.

These same media outlets were quick to pounce on reports that a handful of Democratic offices were vandalized, and they seemed to relish in discussing the glory-hound, former militia leader who sought to claim credit for the handful of broken windows.

The message from the media was clear: any violence against their liberal allies will be broadcast far and wide, and any threat or slur will be published as fact, no matter how dubious the claim.

The reverse, sadly, is not true, and that is not a recent development.

When speculating about why the media refuses to honestly cover the violence perpetrated by the Left, Owens comes to a conclusion that’s a mirror image of one I came to a few years ago when The New Republic published the fraudulent stories of Scott Thomas Beauchamp. Then, I speculated that TNR fell for Beauchamp’s slanderous stories about the US military in Iraq because they wanted to believe them. In the case of the MSM and left-wing violence, Owen offers the flip-side: they don’t want to believe, and so they pretend as much as they can that it does not exist.

Neither is healthy for journalism or democracy in America.
