THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Vermont’s socialist senator, and – at least until tomorrow when Joe Biden might announce – leading Democrat candidate for the presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. At a Monday “town hall” meeting, Senator Sanders was asked whether convicted felons who are currently in jail, should be given the right to vote. He was specifically...

THE WHITE HOUSE WHCA NO-SHOW

As President, Donald Trump has not attended the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) Dinner. This is hardly a surprise, given that the last data I saw showed over 90% press coverage of Mr. Trump has been negative. But until now he has sent members of the administration to attend. However… …last year, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was there, on the...

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Today’s paragraphs come to us from the latest commentary by veteran columnist/TV personality Michelle Malkin.  They concern one of the more remarkable – and telling – “controversies” currently in play; one which mainstream media have been very happy to, for the most part, keep under wraps so the general public is unaware of it. And what is this...

CBS NEWS: HOIST BY ITS OWN RACIAL PETARD

Live by identity politics, die by identity politics.  Especially when a disgruntled former employee has what she believes to be a very legitimate identity-politics axe to grind. Whitney Davis spent about 15 years in CBS’s news and entertainment divisions.  Apparently they were not happy years.  And her reason is embodied in the headline of a just-published article she wrote for Variety...

MEDIA’S DOW DISPARITY

On October 3 of last year, the Dow Jones industrial average hit an all-time high of 26,828.39.  But it then dopped precipitously, to 21,792.20 on December 24th. Media, very understandably, were filled with stories of this drop and speculation about how much further down it would go; whether the bottom would fall out altogether and there would be an economic disaster. Well, as I write this, just...

NBC NEWS REINVENTING HISTORY (AGAIN)

NBC news has done it again. On this morning’s Today Show, it had a feature talking about the possible impeachment of President Trump. Within that feature, there was footage of Trump being asked whether he was worried about being impeached, and answering “Not even a little bit”. NBC News then informed us that his tweets “tell a different story”. OK, so now we’re...

DOES EXONERATION MATTER?

The mueller report was summarized a month ago and issued, in redacted form, over a week ago. It concludes that President Trump and his campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign and there is “insufficient evidence” (i.e. they couldn’t pin it on him) that President Trump engaged in obstruction of justice during the campaign. But would you know that...

KRISTEN WELKER’S EXTRA-SPECIAL HIT PIECE ON PRESIDENT TRUMP

I grant you that it is nothing unusual for The Today Show to do a hit piece on President Trump.  It happens all the time. But, in this morning’s episode, NBC White House Correspondent Kristen Welker truly outdid herself. – First, Ms. Welker showed a video of an NBC reporter ambushing robert mueller as he tried to get into his car after attending Easter Services (I’ve already...

THE (RETRO) QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today’s quote comes to us from Donny Deutsch, a regular on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, who rivals Donald Trump for his capacity to be loud and opinionated…but, unlike Trump, is rarely called out when he’s also dead wrong. Here is Deutsch from Wednesday, February 2nd of last year, telling us about all the evidence of Trump collusion and Russian (more exactly...

THE SRI LANKA TERRORIST ATTACKS

Over 300 dead and and many more injured – so far. The perpetrators are almost certainly members of a radical Islamist group, calling itself s National Thowheed Jamath. Media coverage of this as a radical Islamic attack – sketchy to non-existent, depending on which venue you read/view. Would they be as sketchy to non-existent if it were a Christian attack on mosques? Why would...

THE MUELLER AMBUSH

Funny how things have changed. For over two years, robert mueller was the Democrats’ Great Investigatorial Hope.  The guy who appointed an all-Democrat star chamber to take down Donald Trump’s presidency, which would be easy pickings since Trump so obviously was guilty of (think of a list too long to enumerate in one blog). Then there was the report.  Over 400 pages, laden with...

BETO WHO?

It is now over a week since I have seen anything about Robert Frances “Beto” O’Rourke, other than to note that his rising start has been eclipsed by Peter “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg… …as he eclipsed Cory Booker, who eclipsed Kamala Harris who eclipsed Elizabeth Warren (I think I have the right chronology – maybe I should call it the left chronology. ...

THE OLD RUDY GIULIANI SHOWS UP: TOO BAD FOR CHUCK TODD

I can’t believe what I just watched. Rudy Giuliani was on Meet The Press this morning, to discuss the mueller report. And instead of the debilitated shell of what he used to be, the old, 100% Rudy Giuliani showed up. The result?  Mr. Giuliani took down host Chuck Todd in a way that I would not wish on an enemy. Giuliani blew Todd away so completely, and defended President Trump so...

CNNYONE WATCHING ANYMORE?
