Perhaps the White House told Ed Schultz to compare the administration to a powerhouse football team? On Monday’s MSNBC program, the liberal host offered a most tortured analogy: Barack Obama is just like the University of Auburn’s football team and the Republicans are the defeated Alabama. Schultz even replayed Saturday’s exciting final play, swapping out Chris Davis for the President: “Holy smokes, we’ve got a return by ObamaCare! This is Chris Davis. He’s a believer! He’s got all those Obama blockers out there!” Screaming as he narrated the game’s final seconds, Schultz continued with his fantasy interpretation: “It’s going to work! It’s going to work! Look at ObamaCare! It’s going to work! They ain’t giving up. One hundred and nine yards in Jordan Harris stadium!” Considering his disdain for conservatives, the host leveled his harshest comparison at Alabama: “Even the arrogance of Alabama, who thinks they can beat everybody anywhere, any time, any day, even with one second left, they think they’re going to get it to you. And that’s where they’re just like the Republicans!”
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, as Republican Congressman Mike Rogers denounced ObamaCare’s “unprecedented confiscation of people’s health care,” moderator David Gregory interrupted to parrot White House talking points defending the disastrous policy: “…you talk about confiscation, the reality is there’s also a lot of people who are going to have the potential to get insurance who never had insurance. And you have a small piece of the market where people may lose plans. Many of those will get better plans in the individual market.” Rogers attempted to push back against Gregory’s assertions: “But David, that’s not true. David – a hundred million people [may lose their insurance].” Gregory just kept talking over the Congressman, citing a poll that 54% of Americans think the ObamaCare problems will be solved and concluding: “That’s a level of credibility and belief in the system that presumably is very important.”
On CNN Sunday evening, liberal ESPN columnist LZ Granderson justified the President’s repeated lie about ObamaCare, claiming that Americans knew he did it for their own good. “And, time and time again, Americans have said we can deal with the lies that President Obama tells us because we believe in his heart, he has the best interest for the American people,” Granderson insisted.
On Wednesday’s All In on MSNBC, during a discussion of how to deal with conversing with conservative relative during Thanksgiving dinner, host Chris Hayes at one point seemed to claim that Republicans “sabotaged” the ObamaCare Web site, Healthcare.Gov. CBS contributor Nancy Giles also complained that she “hates” it when people who “hate government” get into power and then “dismantle” government.
Sharyl Attkisson touted ‘Fast and Furious’ whistleblower John Dodson as “a rare example, especially amid the Obama administration’s war on leaks” during a segment on Monday’s CBS This Morning. Attkisson, whose reporting on the arms trafficking scandal won CBS a Edward R. Murrow Award, spotlighted the ATF senior agent’s new book on “the inside story of why he went public to expose the government’s false denials about its gunwalking secrets.” The correspondent also pointed out how “there’s still a court battle over the ‘Fast and Furious’ documents that President Obama is withholding from Congress under executive privilege.” She also featured a clip from Dodson where he emphasized that this is an ongoing controversy that deserves more media attention.
ABC announced on Monday that weatherman and global warming alarmist Sam Champion will be leaving the network for the Weather Channel. Champion has developed a long history of the most hyperbolic predictions about climate change. Additionally, the ABC personality has promoted bizarre environmentalists such as No Impact Man, an activist who shunned toilet paper. On February 8, 2008, Champion ridiculously asked Good Morning America viewers, “Could global warming one day force us into space to live?” On June 25, 2007, the weatherman promoted Colin Beavan, the anti-toilet paper No Impact Man. When his ABC colleagues expressed skepticism, Champion reassured Chris Cuomo that the host could keep “your toilet paper,” but didn’t mention the rest of the country. Here are the five most obnoxious examples of Sam Champion’s environmental extremism:
