Media BiASS: Covering Up News….

CBS, NYT Ignore Own Poll Showing Obama Approval At 40%, Foreign Policy at Only 34%

 

On Wednesday, CBS and The New York Times made the point of omitting results from their own poll which show President Obama’s job approval at 40 percent and his approval on foreign policy at only 34 percent, from the newscasts and print newspaper, respectively. CBS This Morning and the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley only mentioned the latest CBS News/New York Times poll in regards to how 57 percent of Americans do not feel as though the President is being tough enough in dealing with the threat posed by the Islamic terrorist group ISIS. At the other end of the spectrum, only 31 percent of those asked said they approved of his handling of ISIS.

 

Broadcast Networks Black Out Coverage of Benghazi Hearing

 

The major broadcast networks on Wednesday refused to cover the first hearing held by the House Select Committee on Benghazi to begin assessing what happened in the 2012 attack that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty dead. Between their morning and evening newscasts, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC neglected to offer any stories on the bipartisan hearing chaired by Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who promised that: “[O]ur fellow citizens deserve all of the facts of what happened before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi and they deserve an investigative process worthy of the memory of those who died and worthy of the trust of our fellow citizens.”

 

MSNBC and CNN Punt on Live Coverage of Benghazi Hearing; Fox News Airs Over 40 Min.

 

CNN and MSNBC viewers on Wednesday would have to switch channels if they wanted to watch the first hearing of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. CNN aired a 15-second news brief at the top of the 10 am Eastern hour, mere minutes before the nearly three-hour meeting began, but didn’t cover the proceedings live. MSNBC set aside 12 minutes worth of segments to the event, and sometimes showed split-screen video, but didn’t provide the audio. By contrast, Fox News Channel provided nearly 41 minutes (40 minutes, 51 seconds) of live coverage of the congressional committee’s hearing during the 10 am and 11 amEastern hours.

 

PBS Doc: Teddy Roosevelt An ‘Imperialist’ ‘Killer’ Who Glorified War

 

During the first installment of PBS’s The Roosevelts: An Intimate History on Sunday, historian Clay Jenkinson and former Newsweek editor turned historian Evan Thomas slammed Theodore Roosevelt as a bloodthirsty “imperialist” who promoted the “glorification of war” and built up a “cult” of personality. Speaking on Roosevelt’s command of the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War, Jenkinson proclaimed: “There’s no question that Roosevelt is an imperialist. Apologists like to try to play this down. But the fact is he’s probably the most significant imperialist in American history.” Jenkinson seemed troubled by Roosevelt’s call for the United States to “take our place in the world’s arena.”

 

Rosie O’Donnell Stunned at Idea Obama Doesn’t ‘Love People’

 

Rosie O’Donnell appeared shocked by the suggestion that Barack Obama “doesn’t love people.” The View co-host on Tuesday sparred with Republican Nicolle Wallace over the President and demonstrated that she’s still obsessed with George W. Bush. After Wallace asserted that Joe Biden has an easier time because “Joe Biden genuinely loves people,” the 9/11 truther sputtered: “So, are you implying that Obama doesn’t?…He doesn’t love people? Oh, wow.”

Barbara Boxer left “shaking and trembling” after Bob Corker criticized John Kerry and Barack Obama over ISIS

MaddMedic:

Tough….

Earlier today Secretary of State John Kerry testified in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and according to this article he got into a heated debate with Bob Corker, who questioned his judgement on ISIS.

  Here is part of what Bob Corker had to say:

“I want to say as I said personally, we have three senators, president, vice president, secretary of state, that are exercising terrible judgment right now. And to say that you’re going to do this regardless of what we say, you’re not going to ask for buy-in by the United States Senate or House of Representatives on behalf of the American people in a conflict that’s going to be multiyear. Some people say a decade. Taking us into another country with a different enemy, is exercising the worst judgment possible.”

  This criticism of judgement left Barbara Boxer quite upset, she had the following to…
