The next time you wonder just how far to the left Rolling Stone magazine is, consider that in its first issue of the new year, it actually published an article calling for capitalism to be totally abolished in America and replaced with a socialist structure wherein people didn't need to work, all assets were taken over by the government, and redistributed to the masses.
On Thursday, the New York Timescalled for the Obama administration to enter into a plea bargain or offer clemency to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden in order to bring him back to the United States.
On PBS’s McLaughlin Group Friday, syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan observed during a discussion about this issue, “There is an inherent conflict of interest between journalists and so-called whistleblowers” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and a panel of comedians last weekend senselessly mocked a picture of former Governor Mitt Romney’s family because it included his adopted black grandson.
Although she’s already apologized on Twitter, Harris-Perry began her show Saturday with a heartfelt apology much of the time fighting through a lump in her throat and tears (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Following Melissa Harris-Perry's smear on Mitt Romney's adopted black grandson - the third in a series of recent high-profile faux pas by MSNBC hosts - Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz asked a question Friday whose answer appears to definitively be "Yes."
"[H]as the channel developed a culture in which harsh personal attacks are encouraged, or at least tolerated?"
One would have expected the folks at the New York Times to be almost orgasmic witnessing leftist after leftist bash former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg at the inauguration of Bill de Blasio whilst touting income equality as the best thing since sliced bread.
Quite surprisingly, such wasn't the case Friday when the Times editorial board accused some of the speakers of being "graceless and smug":
In 2006, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd published a book with the inflammatory title "Are Men Necessary?"
Eight years later, feminist author Hanna Rosin wrote a piece for TIME magazine Thursday with the substantially more inflammatory title "Men Are Obsolete: Five Reasons We Are Definitely Witnessing The End of Men":
On Pearl Harbor Day, Campbell’s got in a lot of trouble when it tweeted out a picture of its SpaghettiOs mascot holding an American flag and asking people to "take a moment to remember #PearlHarbor with us."
On NBC’s “New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly,” actress and comedienne Natasha Leggero disgustingly joked, “It sucks that the only survivors of Pearl Harbor are being mocked by the only food they can still chew” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Barack Obama's favorability rating is in the toilet, there are crucial midterm elections next year that could decide the fate of his presidency, and what do you think his pollster wishes from the media in 2014?
According toPolitico's Mike Allen, Joel Benenson hopes "playbookers" will "[g]o one year without reporting any public polling data."
As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews devoted his entire Christmas Eve Hardball show to mercilessly attacking eleven conservatives with the assistance from a panel of some of the most conservative-hating liberals in the nation.
The folks at MSNBC must have really liked this show, for they actually reran it in its entirety Monday.
As NewsBusters previously reported, the New York Times on Sunday published a controversial front page piece about the events surrounding last September's attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. It immediately evoked harsh criticism from House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) who said on Fox News Sunday, "[T]hat story is just not accurate."
On Monday, Congressman Peter King (R. N.Y.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterintelligence and Terrorism, shared Rogers' disgust with the Times while telling Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg the paper is trying to "help Hillary Clinton and also to take an issue away from Republicans no matter who the Democratic nominee is" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
On Sunday's Reliable Sources, vulgar comedienne Kathy Griffin - who will once again be co-hosting CNN's New Year's Eve special this year despite kissing Anderson Cooper's crotch on air last year! - actually asked new host Brian Stelter, "Have you ever spooned with Candy Crowley?...You might get a better time slot" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
The New York Times on Sunday published a highly controversial report claiming the September 2012 attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, did not involve al Qaeda, and was as the Administration originally stated a spontaneous demonstration in response to an American-made anti-Islamic video.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) completely refuted the article saying, "[T]hat story is just not accurate" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
In two weeks, the Denver Post has clearly exhibited its far-left leaning.
After scrubbing the word "socialist" from an article about the Arapahoe High School shooter earlier in the month, the Post's television critic published a piece at her blog Saturday calling Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson a "hate-speech spewer" and fans of the show "hate-watchers":
It appears that MSNBC is becoming a 24-hour race-baiting network.
On MSNBC’s Now Friday, king race-baiter Michael Eric Dyson said, “Phil Robertson and the DuckDynasty is part of a majority white supremacist culture that either consciously or unconsciously incubates hatred toward those who are different” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
In his first interview following Friday's announcement by A&E that it was ending the suspension of Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, Jesse Jackson said, "I do not feel good about it."
Speaking with Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg, Jackson not surprisingly misrepresented Robertson's words falsely claiming, "[H]e talked about how happy blacks were under segregation, how the Civil Rights movement interfered with their happiness" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
As NewsBusters reported Friday, A&E withdrew its suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson allowing him to return to the show next year.
Yet Chris Stone, the founder of Faith Driven Consumer as well as the creator of the Robertson-supporting website IStandWithPhil.com, said in a statement Friday that he "remains deeply concerned over unanswered questions" regarding the matter:
The White House and its media minions want you to believe that everything is going swimmingly with ObamaCare since repairs were made to Healthcare.gov.
Quite the contrary, Iowa's KCCI TV reported Friday that the 16,000 people in that state who applied for health insurance via that website need to reapply due to a delay in paperwork (video follows with transcript and commentary):
As NewsBusters has reported for years, the hatred liberal media members have for and display towards former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin knows no bounds.
On MSNBC’s Ed Show Thursday, substitute host Joy Reid castigated Palin first for having the nerve to show family pictures on Fox & Friends Christmas Eve – the horror! – but also for having a Christmas tree on - wait for it! - Christmas (video follows with transcript and commentary):
