Media BiASS: Crap and More Crap….

ABC, NBC Continue to Ignore Report on Violent Illegals; Cover Real Housewives Jail Sentence, Marlins Fan Instead

 

On Thursday night, ABC and NBC continued to make no mention of a damning report byUSA Today that the Obama administration covered up the release of illegal immigrants from prisons who had committed numerous violent crimes, including rape and murder. At the conclusion of the morning newscasts of the major broadcast networks, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today had no coverage while CBS This Morning mentioned it in a news brief that lasted for just 21 seconds. By the time the evening newscasts had aired, ABC’sWorld News Tonight with David Muir and NBC Nightly News followed their morning counterparts and said nothing about the report.

 

NBC Skips Harsh Report on Violent Illegals, Makes Time for Horror Films

 

ABC and NBC on Thursday ignored a shocking new report from USA Today that the Obama administration has covered up the release of illegals involved with rapes and murders. Only CBS This Morning covered the story, managing a mere 20 seconds. Co-host Charlie Rose explained, “The White House told Congress that 2,200 people released from immigration jails last year had only minor criminal records, but records obtained show some of them face charges of kidnapping, sexual assault, and homicide.”

 

Andrea Mitchell Frets: Will Canada ‘Discriminate’ Like U.S. After 9/11?

 

Talking to a Canadian member of Parliament on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell wondered about the threat of bigotry in that country’s reaction to a terrorist shooting. Comparing Canada to the United States, she worried, “But do you fear, do you worry that there is going to be this reaction as, frankly, we had after 9/11?” Except, that’s not what happened after 9/11, at least in regards to Muslims.

 

CNN’s Carol Costello Apologizes for Laughing at Assault of Bristol Palin

 

After being “roundly criticized” for laughing at audio of Bristol Palin’s account of being assaulted by a man and thrown to the ground, CNN’s Carol Costello issued an apology to the Palin family. On Thursday, Politico.com posted the apology sent from Costello: “Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize.” On the October 22 edition of CNN Newsroom the anchor initially said of the audio: “I’m just going to come right out and say it. This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across…Sit back and enjoy.”

 

CNBC’s Harwood Reacts to MRC Study, Excuses Media Silence on Midterms

 

On Thursday’s Squawk Box on CNBC, host Joe Kernen cited the Media Research Center’s latest study showing the Big Three network evening newscasts have barely noticed the anti-Obama midterm election of 2014 but provided wall-to-wall coverage in 2006: “…they breathlessly reported the Democratic takeover of Capitol Hill in the anti-Bush election of 2006….the coverage of this current situation, 6 to 1 disparity. There were 159 stories about the Democrats taking over in 2006. There have been 25 on the Big Three this [year].” The business network’s chief Washington correspondent John Harwood quickly tried to dismiss the finding: “Well, look, I don’t know what data they were using for that….2006 was an election where you had a dominant overriding issue, and that was the Iraq war. Which was extremely controversial, in everybody’s face. This is an election where there isn’t a dominant issue. You’ve got a whole bunch of little issues.”

 

6. Rosie O’Donnell Uses Canadian Terror Attack to Push Gun Control

 

Liberal View co-host (and 9/11 truther) Rosie O’Donnell wasted no time on Thursday in taking the shooting in Canada and spinning it into a plea for gun control in America. The comedienne cited a comment from model Chrissy Teigen. On Wednesday, Teigan tweeted, “Active shooting in Canada or as we call it in America, Wednesday.” O’Donnell raved, “I thought it was brilliant.” The co-host compared, “But 86 people are killed a day are killed in America with guns. And you know what, that is terrorism here.”

Media BiASS: No Journalists To Be Found Here!!

1. Before Being Obama Flack, Jay Carney Claims He Was ‘Old-Fashioned Journalist’ Who ‘Didn’t Take Sides’

 

Appearing on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday, former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney asserted that he had been a completely objective reporter forTime magazine before becoming a spin doctor for the Obama administration: “Right after the election in 2008, I was the Washington bureau chief for Time. And I was an old-fashioned journalist, not an advocate, didn’t take sides in my job. But I was extremely excited personally about the Obama-Biden victory.”

 

2. CNN’s Costello Rips Congress for Adjourning While ‘Rome Burns'; Hounds GOP Rep. On Impeachment

 

Carol Costello badgered Congressman Matt Salmon on Thursday’s CNN Newsroom over Congress choosing to go into recess instead of dealing with issues like illegal immigration: “Congress is again the butt of jokes on late-night TV. Rome burns and lawmakers go on vacation….Why don’t you guys just stay in Washington and deal with problems like immigration?” Costello later hounded the Arizona Republican for the House of Representatives’ vote to sue President Obama, and wondered, “Why didn’t Republicans vote to impeach the President then?”

 

3. CNN’s Bill Weir Slams Fox Nation Web Site: ‘You Willfully Ignorant F***sticks’

 

On Wednesday, CNN anchor Bill Weir, formerly with ABC News, sent to a particularly disparaging tweet to his over 49,500 followers regarding a post on the Fox Nation Web site about Al Gore and global warming: “Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore’s Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings.” In commenting about the Fox Nation post, he referred to Fox as “you willfully ignorant fucksticks.”

 

4. Not a Peep on CNN About Investigation Into New York Governor Cuomo

 

Over the past week, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has been embroiled in a political scandal following his decision to cancel his own Moreland Commission, created to expose political corruption in the state capitol. On July 23, the New York Times reported “that the governor’s office deeply compromised the panel’s work, objecting whenever the commission focused on groups with ties to Mr. Cuomo or on issues that might reflect poorly on him.” Since the news broke, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan has threatened to investigate the Cuomo administration for “possible obstruction of justice or witness tampering.” Despite the potential damning investigation against the New York Democrat, CNN — where Governor Cuomo’s brother Chris Cuomo is employed as anchor of New Day — has yet to acknowledge its existence.

 

5. NBC’s Guthrie to Israeli Ambassador: Is Israel ‘Minting the Next Generation of Terrorists?’

 

In an interview with Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie noted how “anti-Israel protests around the world” “have taken a disturbing turn and become anti-Semitic in nature,” but proceeded to blame Israel for the prejudice: “Do you ask yourselves, ‘Okay, we may be winning militarily but are we losing the larger battle, the PR war?’ And perhaps, as one headline put it yesterday, minting the next generation of terrorists?” The headline Guthrie cited was from the liberal Daily Beast website, which on Wednesday published an article by Jesse Rosenfeld, who ranted: “It is not Hamas propaganda, the school curriculum or even their parents that make these children see a future where continued resistance is the only option for survival. That was an education taught by the Israeli bombs…”

Media BiASS: Covering Up The Disaster in the White House!

 Networks Promote President’s ObamaCare Trash Talk, Leave Out Republican Soundbites

While ABC, NBC, and CBS all hyped President Obama slamming Republican opposition to ObamaCare during his Tuesday “victory lap” in the White House Rose Garden, the network coverage that evening and Wednesday morning did not include a single GOP soundbite on the topic.On Tuesday’s ABC World News, White House correspondent Jon Karl proclaimed: “It looked like a victory celebration, and the beginning of a new campaign.” A clip ran of Obama asserting: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.”

Bob Schieffer and Brian Williams Push Liberal Reaction to SCOTUS Campaign Finance Decision

Both CBS’s Bob Schieffer and NBC’s Brian Williams cried foul on Wednesday evening at the Supreme Court striking down the cap on overall political donations, showing sympathy for supporters of the law. Schieffer lamented that “more and more, the very rich are taking control of our politics” and that “this ruling is just one more sign that we no longer have any campaign laws that really matter.” Brian Williams actually quoted liberal Justice Stephen Breyer and asked what opponents of the decision could do. “And Pete, back to the ‘voice of the people,’ as Justice Breyer put it, for the people who think what happened today was bad, looking for remedies, what would those be?” Williams asked. He echoed the liberal line that the wealthy could enjoy more influence, ruing the Court was “allowing wealthy donors to have an even bigger influence in politics.”

CNN’s Costello Bewails ‘Big Advantage’ Court Gave ‘Wealthy’ in Campaign Finance Ruling

On Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello decried the Supreme Court’s latest decision underlining that political donations are a form of free speech: “You know, these rulings continue to surprise me – only because so many Americans are concerned about the money factor…They think it’s a real problem, and these kinds of rulings seem to only exacerbate those problems.” Costello brought on liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and asked, “Doesn’t that give wealthy donors a big advantage?”

NBC Hails ‘Good Day in Washington’ as Obama Poses for Selfie With Red Sox Player

Forget all the unanswered questions about ObamaCare or the President’s sinking poll numbers or the Democratic Party’s vulnerability in the midterm elections, on Wednesday’s NBC Today, all that was wiped away by President Obama taking a selfie with Red Sox player David Ortiz.  As fill-in news anchor Tamron Hall put it, “In a town where they don’t agree on a lot, I think everyone agrees that this was a pretty cool moment….The Red Sox meeting with the President…. Big Papi [David Ortiz] with the President preparing to take his official photo. Then, he went rogue….The Big Papi selfie….Look at those smiles there. A good day in Washington.”

Gun Stuff and Stuff That Just….Makes No Sense..

Facts. Facts that anti-gunners and politicians ignore and hate…

For instance, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports: Crime in the United States Table 1, violent crimes in the US have dropped by nearly 50% in the last twenty years.  In 1992, there were 757.7 violent crimes per 100,000 people.  In 2011, there were only 386.3 violent crimes per 100,000 people.  That’s a reduction of 49%.

In the same Table 1, we also see that there were 9.3 homicides per 100,000 people in 1992 and that number dropped to 4.7 homicides per 100,000 in 2011.  That’s a reduction of 49.4% in the homicide rate in the past twenty years.

See facts…

Stupid. Stupid…

Wow…Muhlbauer: Ban, seize semi-auto weapons

 I have a very close friend in the DMPD, who asked that I post this here for him, as he fears reprisals:
“Why is ii ugly statist trolls are always so eager to get us law officers killed for their beliefs? You got another thing coming creep if you think myself or my fellow officers are going to commit suicide by carrying out any such illegal order.
You’d have us trample on essential liberties, and put everything we hold dear at risk.
My kids have to go to school with the people you want me to kick the doors in on. My wife works with the people you want me to gun-down. My house is right next to all the families you’d have me assault – yes I said ASSAULT.
No way. No d*&^ way. These are my neighbors, friends, and family. We work our collective butts off, trying to keep these people safe! You’d have us turn our weapons on them?
I, and most of my fellow officers will not be a party to this. We are PEACE KEEPERS. We are SHEEP-DOGS.
We are not “goons” or “stormtroopers” at the beckon call of some schmuck out to make his name by chasing tragedies.
If you want to disarm the people of Iowa, then you strap on a vest, and take them yourself you authoritarian coward.
In fact if it comes to that, you can have MINE, cause I will quit, and a hell of alot of my comrades will stand right alongside me. Your stupid anti-liberty agenda is not worth my blood, the blood of my fellow officers, or the blood my my family.
Take them yourself.

So they are going to let Obama and the Government keep their drone use secret…What caliber for drones? How about the .577 Tyrannosaur?

Zorbing. Never heard of it…Now for sure don’t want to..

Mass Shootings Do Little to Change State Gun Laws

I work in EMS. No I am no ‘specialist’ I took care of people, now I teach people,  I saw people at their worst and best. I treated injuries from many ‘objects’ including gun shots..But dammit, taking guns, legislating guns  is NOT going to solve the damn problem and I just hate reading articles like the one here. Some sanctimonious assO..Damn..Get off your effing high horse!! Tell me how TEXAS gun laws would have made any difference on a damn MILITARY base?

Texas: There’s been no effort to tighten gun control in Texas since Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, 39, killed 13 and wounded 32 at a military processing center at Fort Hood in 2009.

In 2011, legislators passed two bills that gave gun carriers greater freedom to take their weapons to more places. One bill restricted employers from prohibiting guns from vehicles in parking areas and another allowed foster parents to carry handguns while transporting their foster children, as long as they are licensed carriers.

NBC Medical Editor Okay With Publishing Gun Owner Addresses: ‘We’re Not Outing Child Molesters’

During a panel discussion on Tuesday’s NBC Today, chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman voiced her support for a New York newspaper, The Journal News, publishing a list of addresses of local gun owners: “You have these sort of blind assumptions that when your child goes over to play with another kid, he or she is going to be safe. And I think that has been now negated. So I have no problem….we’re not outing child molesters, this is a legal transaction, it’s a public transaction.” Snyderman’s declaration was prompted by fellow panelist, advertising executive Donny Deutsch, also standing by the paper’s controversial action: I think it’s a great idea, I’ll tell you why. I’ve got two little girls at home and I would like to know if they’re going on a play date in a house where there’s a gun….when you have a gun, you are setting yourself up as somebody different. It’s your choice…”

ABC Uses Gabby Giffords for Massive Push to Fight ‘Gun Warfare in America’

ABC on Tuesday began a multi-show push to promote the gun control crusade of Gabby Giffords and her husband. Good Morning America‘s George Stephanopoulos kicked off the program by trumpeting, ” The most famous face affected by gun violence fights back. Gabby Giffords announcing direct action against gun warfare in America.” (Gun warfare? As of 2012, crime is at a 20 year low in America. The murder rate has dropped by almost half.) More of Diane Sawyer‘s interview with Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly will air on the January 8 World News and Nightline. Giffords, who was grievously injured in a 2011 shooting in Arizona, only uttered two words during the morning segment. Stephanopoulos narrated, explaining that the couple is starting a “campaign for responsible changes to gun laws.” He added that they will be “working with politicians to take high-powered gun lobbyists head-on.”

We have to raise the taxes!! We have to ignore the debt ceiling…But Wait!! Ban the eveel gunz!!!

CNN Hypes Gabby Giffords’ Push for New Gun Laws

CNN did its best to promote former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ push for stricter gun laws on Tuesday. “And if you think about it, if Gabby Giffords came knocking on my door, office door on Capitol Hill, I would have to let her in,” swooned anchor Carol Costello. Correspondent David Mattingly directed viewers to her website’s fundraising section: “[I]f you go to the website that they’ve set up now, the Americans for Responsible Solutions, the first thing you see there is a big window where you can click on it to donate.”

We have 4 dead in Benghazi, no one claims to know where the survivors disappeared to..well one does. But she has been well, indisposed!! So lets ignore the 4 dead in Benghazi..Have we heard this before? 4 dead on O-HI- O maybe??  But the one whom knows is back so lets PARTY and make light of everything else!!

Networks Celebrate Hillary Clinton’s Return to Work and ‘Prank Gift’

All three network evening newscasts on Monday found time to tout Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s return to work after hospitalization for a blood clot, “clearly enjoying a prank gift” from her staff and being greeted by a “standing ovation.” NBC’s Nightly News devoted a full report to the development, with anchor Brian Williams declaring: “…we got our first official look at Secretary of State Hillary Clinton since she emerged from the hospital. It came in the form of some still photos of her first day back at work, a view of her carefully managed by her team after a tough couple of weeks.”

He goes from running for his life in Jurassic Park to a Preacher Man in Justified (*disclaimer: Have no damn clue what ‘Justified’ is. But did watch Jurassic Park with my then 2-3 yo who was into dinosaurs. He lasted until the T-Rex plucked the dude off the toilet. Bolting for our bedroom and the safety of Mom at that point.) And now handles slithery reptiles…Hmm..

Call to action from NutNFancy..
