Last night, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) joined Sean Hannity to talk about the hypocrisy of Tea Party demonization, the Democrats’ love affair with government intervention, and the Obama Administration’s support for net neutrality. The segment was solid, but in my opinion didn’t offer anything out of the ordinary. Mediaite’s Frances Martel, however, uses the interview [...]
The media is trying to paint the Tea Party as a branch of the Republican Party. Rather than being a grassroots movement, they view it as the mobilization of the loudest conservatives who would never vote for a Democrat anyway. They don’t even see it as a “movement,” something spurred by a specific issue, but [...]
“Access to this site has been denied in accordance with Navy policy to safeguard the security posture and/or to maintain the operational integrity of the NMCI.”
This was the message encountered on Friday by Navy corpsmen when trying to access FoxNews.com via the Navy’s internet system. Other news sites during this time, including the New York [...]
No, I did not put acid in your coffee. You read that right. Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart defended the Tea Partiers and criticized the media for painting them with a broad stroke.
In describing the Tea Party rallies yesterday, he said there was “the occasional f—-ing idiot,” which sounds like an insult [...]
That seems to be the complaint of the Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik, anyway. Today he writes that the Fox News superstar is crossing the line by broadcasting from a Tax Day Tea Party in Cincinnati:
Even if you buy the argument promoted by Fox management that Hannity’s show is opinion, not news, and everyone on the [...]
To Pull or Not to Pull: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Runs Clip of Sen. McCain Saying Its Time We Pulled the Trigger on Iran
I just caught the YouTube video of Sen. John McCain saying that it was time to pull the trigger on Iran. From the context, of course, McCain is merely saying that we need to impose strict sanctions on Iran – not that it is time to bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran.
Nevertheless, from the point of [...]
Last night on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert interviewed the founder of WikiLeaks and all-round creepy-man Julian Assange, who recently released video of a U.S. Apache helicopter allegedly massacring civilians in Iraq. He definitely earned the first three letters in his last name.
The war in Iraq is something Colbert clearly opposes, but that doesn’t stop [...]
The pugnacious producer of Fox News’ “O’Reilly Factor” paid a visit to our favorite global warming alarmist, Al Gore. I have to admit, although I like Bill O’Reilly, I hate the Jesse Watters ambush segments. Still, watching Watters take a bite out of the Goracle — asking him if he was embarrassed by “Climategate” and [...]
Political disagreements in the U.S. are harsh, and generally, the opposition is always the most juvenile. It seems under every administration, the opposition party does whatever it can to make the public believe the president is a liar, tyrant, traitor, extremist ideologue, or any other negative adjective, and often the party in power responds with [...]
