CHRIS CUOMO\’S INTERROGATION OF DAVID DALEIDEN

Ken Berwitz I just read Matthew Balan\’s blog at newsbusters.org, which describes how CNN New Day\’s host, Chris Cuomo, invited David Daleiden, who was behind the Planned Parenthood videos that CNN and ABC and NBC and CBS and MSNBC have done their best to suppress (have you seen even one minute\’s worth of the videos on any of those networks?). Apparently, instead of...

OBAMACARE FOR ILLEGALS (VOTING NEXT?!)

Ken Berwitz Can this possibly be a surprise? From David Eldridge\’s article at rollcall.com Rep Luis V. Gutierrez, one of Congress\’ most outspoken advocates for immigrants, on Wednesday called for expanding the Affordable Care Act to cover all of the estimated 11 million undocumented migrants in the United States. “The goal is to make integration and inclusion real for...

PLANNED PARENTHOOD\’S 86% ABORTION REVENUE

Ken Berwitz Led by twitchy.com\’s postings, the conservative blogosphere is jumping to report that, in yesterday\’s hearings, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards (former Texa Governor Ann Richards\’ daughter, in case you\’re interested) either said or acknowledged that 86% of Planned Parenthood\’s revenues come from abortion. Well, you have to be a bit...

THOSE “EDITED” PLANNED PARENTHOOD TAPES: WHERE ARE THE EXAMPLES?

Ken Berwitz To the folks who either claim, or believe the claim – that those Planned Parenthood videos, made by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP),  were “heavily edited” or “doctored” (they mean different things), I have a question: How come, in all the instances where this has been claimed – and it has been pretty much an everyday occurrence among...

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATON\’S TERRORIST AMNESTY PROGRAM

Ken Berwitz Can this be true?  Has the Obama administration allowed over 1,500 people with overt terrorist ties, into the United States – with more to come? If your response is “That couldn\’t be true, I watch the network news every night and didn\’t see a thing about it” you can stop reading now.  You\’re assumption that network news – or...

AHMED MOHAMED: STILL MILKING HIS HOAX

Ken Berwitz Here is the beginning of Pamella Geller\’s excellent, insightful article about ahmed mohamed, the 14 year old “victim” who apparently took the inside of a Radio Shack clock to school in a casing that made it look like a bomb, pretended he had “invented” it, got his desired result – a reaction to what could have been a bomb, which any intelligent...

THE MEANING OF 3%

Ken Berwitz I have a Honda Accord.  I bought it from a Honda dealership not far from my house.   It\’s a Honda dealership.  They sell Honda cars. With me so far?  Good. Now I will tell you that only a tiny fraction of that Honda Dealership\’s business is selling cars.   How can this be?   Well, they also service Hondas.  I\’ll bet there...

TRUMP ON FOX

Ken Berwitz Donald Trump is coming back on Fox News Channel.  And not because he had some kind of sit-down with Fox News President Roger Ailes – that meeting has not even taken place yet. The reason, if your\’e asking me, is that there was no boycott of Fox News Channel in the first place.  Fox is far and away the most-watched cable news network, and Trump...

OF FONTS AND QUOTES

Ken Berwitz If things look like they are changing on this blog, that is because I\’m experimenting with different fonts and different ways of indicating when something has been taken from another source. I have been using Verdana 10 for a while, but I think Times New Roman 12 might be better.  And instead of putting quotes in rust, then in a sort of light mauve, I have, in the...

CHUCK TODD\’S SYRIA CANDOR

Ken Berwitz My congratulations to NBC Political Director and Meet The Press host Chuck Todd, for the following comments, made yesterday before President Obama spoke at the UN, about Mr. Obama\’s overall foreign policy record, and his performance, specifically, regarding Syria: Well, it\’s, this hasbeen, if you look at his foreign policy report card — it\’s a tough...

NO, JOE

Ken Berwitz I just read New York Times Op-Ed columnist Joe Nocera\’s latest piece, in which he analyzes, and largely skewers, the Donald Trump tax plan. Here is how Mr. Nocera ends: There\’s one other thing. All his life, Trump has had a deepneed to be perceived as a “winner.” He always has to be perceived coming out ontop. That\’s why, ultimately, I don\’t...

HILLARY CLINTON\’S “CROSSOVER”

Ken Berwitz Hillary Clinton would love crossover votes.  But, somehow, I doubt she likes the “crossover” lines in this chart, which tracks her positive and negative ratings from the NBC/Wall St. Journal poll since February, 2013, when she resigned as Secretary Of State: To put this in perspective, I\’ll put it in Rhyme: When the red goes up and the blue goes...

THE DRIVER RESTORE ANNOYANCE

Ken Berwitz Somewhere down the line, I don\’t know how, I wound up with something called “Driver Restore” on my computer. Every night about this time it puts up a message telling me my drivers are ok and asking me to register my computer – a message which takes several clicks to remove, a procedure my wife has yet to master (which means I\’m called in to do it for...

RUSSIA – THE NEW USA

Ken Berwitz Quick:  name the go-to country for international affairs. In my lifetime, it has always been the USA. But now?   The Wall Street Journal is reporting that “Iraq joined Russia, Iran and Syria in a new agreement tostrengthen cooperation against extremist group Islamic State, extending theKremlin\’s reach in the Middle East as it rivals Washington for...

ONLY OFF BY THREE ZEROS…AND ZEROS MEAN NOTHING, RIGHT?..

Ken Berwitz With a major hat tip to P. J. Gladnick of newsbusters.org… …here are the first two paragraphs of Julie Eilperin and Michelle Boorstein\’s article in the August 25th Washington Post: Several environmentalgroups are planning a major climate rally that will draw hundreds ofthousands to the National Mall on Sept. 24, the day Pope Francis speaks toCongress...
