Media BiASS: Alphabet Networks Report Nothing……

89 Percent of Network Stories Omit Obama’s Role in Causing Border Crisis

 

While all three networks played clips of Barack Obama on Monday blaming the GOP for the border crisis, they have been reluctant to cite the President’s own failure to enforce immigration laws as a cause for thousands of immigrants illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexican border. From June 8 through the morning of July 1 ABC, CBS and NBC have offered a total of 45 stories on the border crisis, on their evening and morning shows, and in only 5 (11 percent) have they brought up Obama immigration policies as a possible cause for the most recent surge of illegal immigrants, including unaccompanied children, crossing the border.

 

NBC Promotes Twitter Handle For Illegal Immigrants: #RefugeeRiders

 

On Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today went beyond avoiding using the term “illegal” to describe the immigrants being bussed from Texas into California but the Peacock network has created a Twitter handle to show its support for the illegal immigrants. Following a report by NBC’s Miguel Almaguer, Today anchor Matt Lauer triumphantly declared: “We want you to weigh in on this. Share your comments using the #RefugeeRiders.”

 

ABC, NBC Fail to Use the Term ‘Illegal’ In Story On Illegal Immigrants Being Bused Across Country

 

On Tuesday, all three network evening newscasts hyped a protest in Murrieta, California where residents objected to busloads of illegal immigrants being sent to their town to be processed by border patrol agents. While all three networks covered the story, only the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley actually called the 140 passengers “illegal immigrants” with ABC and NBC choosing to call them “migrants” and “undocumented immigrants” respectively.

 

ABC, NBC Ignore Obama’s Immigration Rant; CBS Pits Obama, Boehner Against GOP

 

The broadcast network morning newscasts came and went on Tuesday with NBC’s Todayand ABC’s Good Morning America ignoring President Obama’s latest rant against Republicans. CBS This Morning devoted a full 2 minutes and 45 seconds to Obama’s rant against House Republicans for refusing to accept his parameters for immigration reform and bucking their own Speaker on his willingness to take up the matter. In his report, CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante cast Obama in a heroic light, heralding how “[t]he president went to the Rose Garden and teed off on Republicans and Congress for not allowing a vote on the immigration reform bill even though many members personally supported it. As a result, he says, he will take matters into his own hands.”

 

ABC’s GMA Yawns at Hobby Lobby Ruling; Spotlights ‘Running of the Interns’

 

NBC and ABC omitted covering the Supreme Court’s final two rulings from their Tuesdaymorning newscasts, despite the fact that the decisions came down after their Mondayepisodes aired. Only CBS This Morning set aside air time for the ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, which upheld the religious liberty rights of closely held corporations. Viewers of ABC’sGood Morning America might have guessed that the Supreme Court handed down some decisions, as the morning show devoted a full segment to the “running of the interns,” where the summer interns of media outlets run copies of Court’s “big rulings” to the journalists outside. GMA even held their own intern race, where the competitors run cups of iced coffee to the anchors inside the studio.

Media BiASS: Ignoring the Truth…

NY Times Runs Only 13 Stories on IRS In Last Six Months

 

The New York Times’ motto is “all the news that’s fit to print,” but in their eyes it seems as though the IRS scandal isn’t worth printing all that much. Research conducted by the Media Research Center found that in the past 6 months (183 days) the New York Times has published only 13 news items on the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party groups. The study focused on the dates of December 25, 2013 until June 26, 2014 and did not include editorial or opinion pieces published in the Times. Not a single story on the IRS made it onto the front page of the New York Times.

 

CBS Reporter Files Puff Piece on Obama Using Letters that ‘Construct His Political Narrative’

 

Thursday’s edition of CBS This Morning featured the latest installment in the media’s love affair with President Barack Obama. CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante switched course from a constructive work of journalism he did Tuesday to a fluff piece on how Obama uses letters Americans send to the White House “to construct his political agenda.” The story comes as Obama headed to Minnesota on Thursday to have lunch with a woman who wrote to him about how sending her two children to daycare costs more than her family’s mortgage payment. Plante marveled about how the woman’s letter “fit perfectly into the President’s agenda to emphasize the difficulties facing working families.”

 

CBS Finally Covers House Speaker’s Lawsuit Against Obama Administration

 

CBS lifted its blackout of House Speaker John Boehner’s planned lawsuit against the Obama White House with a 15-second news brief on Thursday’s CBS This Morning. The network follows in the footsteps of NBC, which first mentioned the story a day earlier on Wednesday’sToday, and ABC on Wednesday’s World News. Altogether, the Big Three networks have devoted just one minute and 18 seconds to the legal development.

 

 Bill O’Reilly Uses MRC Stat to Show Liberal Media ‘Subverting American Democracy’

 

At the top of his Wednesday show, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly denounced the liberal media for “subverting American democracy.” He cited a particularly glaring double standard: “You may remember New Jersey Governor Chris Christie being pounded by the national media for a controversy on the George Washington Bridge….devoting 112 minutes to the situation in the first week….But when the VA scandal story broke, there was no coverage on the nightly network news broadcast for almost two weeks.” Those numbers were calculated by Media Research Center senior news analyst Scott Whitlock in a May 22 Media Reality Checkentitled: “In a Month, TV News Gives Less Airtime to VA Scandal than Christie Controversy Received in Four Days.”

Liberals seem to live in a constant state of daydreaming, as they contemplate ways to manipulate humanity’s behavior through endless regulations designed to alter a human’s environment. They truly think, despite common sense and logic dictating otherwise, that the government knows what’s best for the people, and that individuals are incapable of making the “right” choice.

Excellent news!

A few weeks ago, we told you about “Operation Choke Point” — an effort by Attorney General Eric Holder to put gun stores out of business.

Basically, it works like this: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), at the behest of Barack Obama, has declared that gun stores are “high risk” businesses. “High risk” businesses have been, up until now, a small category of supposedly disreputable businesses, which have included pornographers, sellers of drug paraphernalia, and payday lenders.

The second step in the process is Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s “Operation Choke Point.” And its function is specifically to choke off any credit or credit card processing for businesses (now including gun dealers) who fall in the “high risk” category.

Already, scores of gun dealers have complained that their banks have cut their credit or otherwise put pressure on them. Three articles detailing this effort to shut down gun dealers may be found herehere and here.

The good news is this: Senator Rand Paul has just filed an amendment to the Science Justice Commerce Appropriations bill which will cut off Obama’s efforts to shut down gun stores by drying up their credit.

The Paul language is Amendment 3292 to H.R. 4660.

The appropriations bill is currently on the floor, but we expect the Paul amendment to be considered Friday or Tuesday. If adopted, the Obama administration would be barred from attempting to cut off credit to guns stores – just because they sell guns.

ACTIONContact your Senators. Demand that they vote for the Paul amendment.

GOA: Good News … and Some Bad News

Good News … and Some Bad News

We start with yesterday’s bad news.

The Supreme Court’s decision in the Abramski case was a lawless decree imposed by liberal judges who are way out of step with the American people — as nearly 75% of them agree that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own and sell guns.

Gun Owners of America filed two amicus briefs in support of James Abramski, a former police officer who was eligible to own firearms and who bought a handgun for his elderly uncle who was also eligible to own firearms.

Both men passed a NICS background check, yet ATF claimed that Abramski lied on his Form 4473 when he claimed he was the “actual buyer” of the firearm.

This case involves one of the greatest instances of regulatory and prosecutorial abuse that we have ever seen.

The concept of a “straw purchase” is a “doctrine” created by ATF and the courts, rather than a “crime” enacted by Congress.

ATF argued that Abramski’s statement was “intended or likely to deceive” the Federal Firearms Licensee (“FFL”), even though he specifically asked two FFLs who both told him that he was following the law.

Click here to see the analysis of the Abramski decision by Gun Owner’s legal team.

The Abramski decision throws gun laws into great confusion. After all, even Sarah Brady has admitted — on pp. 223-224 of her book, A Good Fight (2002) — that SHE BOUGHT a hunting rifle for her son for Christmas one year.

She did exactly the same thing that James Abramski did, who has been viciously prosecuted by an anti-gun Obama administration!

Maybe the Obama Administration should now open a case against Sarah Brady, who is the founder of the Brady Campaign — an organization which is, ironically, championing yesterday’s Supreme Court decision.

They should prosecute her, too, but don’t hold your breath.

This just shows the importance of this year’s elections, when voters will have the opportunity to take the gavel out of Senator Harry Reid’s hands. The Senate Majority Leader has been busy packing the courts with far-left judges who don’t respect the Second Amendment, and now the “chickens are coming home to roost.”

Now that two anti-gun judges have been confirmed to the Supreme Court under Obama’s presidency, we have an anti-gun decision authored by Justice Kagan — who was supported by Senators Mark Begich (D-AK), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA), among others.

Click here to see if your Senator voted for Justice Elena Kagan — and let them know your displeasure if they voted to confirm her.

Two Things to be Happy About

First, the impact of the defeat of Eric Cantor on the anti-gun amnesty bill, which would have created over 8 million anti-gun voters.  We reported on that election last week, but didn’t discuss its ramifications.

But there was every evidence that, once Cantor had passed his primary, he intended to bring up immigration amnesty in July and slam it through the House with Democratic votes.  The notion is that Cantor would have thumbed his nose at Republican conservatives, who would, in Cantor’s mind, not have been able to do anything about his perfidy.

Now that is much less likely to happen.

Pundits of all political stripes spent election night last week throwing dirt on the grave of immigration amnesty, which had been the central issue in David Brat’s defeat of Cantor.

National Review Online has not exactly been the biggest opponent of amnesty.  Yet, last Wednesday morning, NRO columnist Jonah Goldberg said that amnesty has had “a stake driven through its heart; it was drawn and quartered; it is dead; the earth was salted.”

Goldberg went on to observe that anti-amnesty Americans could not have sent a stronger message if “the Potomac turned to blood and frogs rained from the sky.”

Final victory for this year will happen only when Congress adjourns sine die.  But an attempt to ambush us appears to have been headed off at the pass.

Second thing that will make your day:  Also last week, Barack Obama was asked what was the biggest frustration of his administration.  He replied:  “My biggest frustration is that society hasn’t been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do damage.”

Obama went on to claim that the difference between the U.S. and countries like Finland is that, in the U.S., “these guys can stack up a bunch of ammunition in their houses and that’s sort of par for the course.”  [Of course, 1968 Gun Control Act regulated ammunition, but the 1986 McClure-Volkmer Act deregulated it.]

This tells us a lot about Barack Obama, who has been open about his intent to implement universal background checks, but now has made it clear that he sees this as a stepping stone to regulating and banning ammunition as well.

Republicans. In Name Only..

Voting to take your Right to self defense away..

Which is what Obama wants and apparently 1 in 3 House Republicans..

Including Minnesota’s, Erik Paulsen (202) 225-2871.

Representing Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District.

He was the only Republican member of Minnesota’s House delegation to support:

According to Dudley Brown of the National Association of Gun Rights one in three Republicans decided to vote against your rights by supporting Barack Obama’s agenda to label millions of American’s “mentally ill”.  The Obama administration has been successful in denying more over 175,000 of our nations veterans their Second Amendment rights in this manner and are attempting to expand this to every American.

Another RINO.

And not the only one..
