Media BiASS: Burger King is News? Pathetic Journalism…

Sharyl Attkisson Schools ABC, CBS, NBC on How to Cover the IRS Scandal

 

Unlike her colleagues at the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, on Tuesday night, actually dug into the finer points of the big bombshells revealed in the IRS scandal this week. Invited on Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight to discuss the revelations of a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer confirming the existence of Lois Lerner’s “missing” e-mails and the IRS’s destruction of her Blackberry (stories the networks through Wednesday morning have yet to touch) Attkisson also did a great job of explaining the conflict of interest going on at the DOJ.

 

ABC and NBC Ignore Possible Obstruction of Justice in Growing VA Scandal

 

Wednesday’s morning shows on ABC and NBC ignored the latest details of the growing scandal engulfing the Veterans Affairs department. Only CBS bothered to report on the story, allowing a scant 20 seconds. This Morning co-anchor Gayle King revealed, “USA Today says the VA scandal now includes obstruction of justice allegations. Ninety three health care facilities are being investigated by the VA’s inspector general.” She added that the “Justice Department and FBI are joining this probe.”

 

Networks Fret Over Burger King ‘Defecting’ to Canada to Pay Lower Taxes

 

As news broke on Tuesday of Burger King buying Tim Hortons and moving its corporate headquarters to Canada, the broadcast networks quickly adopted the liberal talking point that the fast food chain was being unpatriotic by avoiding high U.S. tax rates. On Tuesday’sABC World News, anchor Diane Sawyer proclaimed: “Burger King, home of the Whopper, accused of doing something a lot of Americans question, defecting. Heading north of the border to Canada and saving a lot of tax money.” On Wednesday’s Today, correspondent John Yang touted “a whopper of a controversy” over the move and announced: “…just the idea of moving the headquarters to Canada has some once-loyal Burger King subjects ready to revolt….On Burger King’s Facebook page, nearly 5,000 posts, most critical. ‘You abandon the America that made you and we will abandon you.’”

 

CBS Hits Warren Buffett from Left Over Burger King Deal: ‘Capitalist Before He’s A Patriot’

 

Ever since fast food chain Burger King announced its desire to purchase Canadian coffee and doughnut chain Tim Hortons, CBS has done its best to play up the supposed backlash the company will face as it moves its headquarters overseas to lower its tax burden. On Wednesday morning, following the news that billionaire investor Warren Buffett is helping finance the merger, CBS This Morning made sure to hit Buffett from the left with fill-in anchor Anthony Mason going so far as to proclaim that “somebody once said Warren Buffett is a capitalist before he’s a patriot.”

 

O’Reilly: Al Sharpton ‘Almost Single-Handedly Has Corrupted NBC News’

 

On his show Monday night, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly declared that MSNBC host and Ferguson, Missouri activist Al Sharpton “has become so controversial in America that it’s hard to explain how a news agency, NBC, can even have him on the payroll.” Mediabuzzhost Howard Kurtz agreed, labeling Sharpton’s employment with the network “a travesty.” Kurtz pointed to Sharpton “delivering a pretty political speech at the funeral” of Michael Brown and being “the go-to guy for the Obama White House on Ferguson,” proclaiming: “It is amazing to me, this just reeks that MSNBC thinks this is acceptable.” Moments later, O’Reilly concluded: “I believe that Sharpton almost single-handedly has corrupted NBC News.”

Sharyl Attkisson: Morell’s ‘Bizarre’ Benghazi Testimony Contradicts Past Claims About Attack

On the Thursday edition of WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall radio show, Sharyl Attkisson spotlighted the Obama administration’s many inconsistencies in their claims about the September 11, 2012 Islamist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. Attkisson outlined, in detail, “all of the different stories told about the talking points” about the terrorist attack. Former Fox News anchor Brian Wilson and Breitbart.com’s Larry O’Connor turned to the former CBS News journalist for her take on former deputy CIA director Mike Morell’s congressional testimony on the Benghazi issue on Wednesday. She zeroed in on how Morell and others were trying to minimize any perception that the talking points were altered for political considerations.

NBC Warns: Supreme Court ‘Opens the Door Even Wider for Unlimited Money in Politics’

On Thursday’s NBC Today, White House correspondent Peter Alexander decried Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling striking down some campaign finance restrictions: “So just consider this, in just twelve year from the 2000 elections to those in 2012, total campaign spending in this country doubled from $3 billion to $6.3 billion. And the Supreme Court ruling now opens the door even wider for unlimited money in politics that has obviously already skyrocketed.”  Alexander assumed viewers agreed with that liberal narrative: “And you thought there was already too much money in politics. Fasten your seat belts. From now on, there’s gonna be a whole lot more. The Supreme Court struck down a decades-old campaign law…”

NY Times Lauds New Play on the ‘Signature Triumph’ of Jimmy Carter and His ‘Rehabilitation’ Efforts

New York Times writer Sheryl Gay Stolberg on Thursday highlighted glowing supporters of Jimmy Carter as she promoted a new Broadway play about the life of the former president. Stolberg parroted that “acolytes of Mr. Carter hope that ‘Camp David’…will be a powerful reminder of the signature triumph of the Carter presidency and perhaps revive the decades-long effort to rehabilitate him.” The play focuses around Carter’s 1978 efforts to negociate a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. Stolberg allowed the type of self-aggrandizing comments that – if spoken by a Republican – would prompt howls of outrage from the Times. She related, “Mr. Carter told the playwright [Lawrence Wright] and the producer that he felt ‘God wanted him to play a role’ in Middle East peace.”

MSNBC’s Sharpton Rips Paul Ryan’s ‘Dangerous,’ ‘Ruthless,’ ‘Heartless’ Budget

MSNBC’s Al Sharpton was incensed by Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) newly-released budget plan on Wednesday’s PoliticsNation. Referencing President Obama’s comment that “America is a place for everybody,” Sharpton added his own condemnation of Ryan’s budget as he hollered, America is a place for everybody, not a place for dangerous ideas and a ruthless war on the poor!”

NBC and CBS Find Real White House Scandal: Obama’s Red Sox Selfie May Have Been Staged

After eagerly promoting President Obama’s selfie with Red Sox player David Ortiz on Wednesday, Thursday’s NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning expressed their dismay that Ortiz may have staged the seemingly spontaneous cell phone picture to promote his sponsor Samsung.  On Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie lamented: “Okay, so turns out that wasn’t as spontaneous as it looks. The selfie was captured with a Samsung phone and it turns out, mm-hm, you guessed it, David Ortiz has an endorsement deal with Samsung….I think it’s kind of ridiculous that it’s a product placement. And also because I thought it was a really cute moment, so I guess I’m kind of disappointed.”

Gun Stuff…Sheriffs…Free Speech..Unions…Benghaz?…Benghazi??..Stronger ATF….

Texas Sheriff Won’t Enforce Gun Laws That He Says Violate Constitution

States Standing Up For Second Amendment Are Prepared To Throw Feds In Jail

President Barack Obama hadn’t even announced his gun control proposals last week, and states were already trying to criminalize anybody who enforces them.

Minnesota Sheriffs…Want..

  • Strengthen existing gun background check laws
  • Provide greater access to mental health records for law enforcement
  • Address gaps in providing services and resources to Minnesotans who live with untreated mental illness.

What’s so great about free speech?

– As a young lad in grad school, President Obama’s nominee to head the CIA didn’t think free speech was such a sacrosanct value. Charles Johnson reports for TheDC:

“In his 1980 graduate thesis at the University of Texas at Austin, John Brennan denied the existence of ‘absolute human rights’ and argued in favor of censorship on the part of the Egyptian dictatorship. ‘Since the press can play such an influential role in determining the perceptions of the masses, I am in favor of some degree of government censorship,’ Brennan wrote. ‘Inflamatory [sic] articles can provoke mass opposition and possible violence, especially in developing political systems.’ Brennan serves as President Barack Obama’s national security advisor. Obama has nominated him to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.”

That John Brennan is just so open-minded.

MOVE TO BOLSTER THE ATF

President Obama’s nomination of B. Todd Jones to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Wednesday is an effort to energize a depleted agency .

Pray that all of our law enforcement agencies place a high regard on honoring and protecting our U.S. Constitutional rights and freedoms while also protecting the citizens of the United States from illegal activites.

 

“In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and He answered by setting me free.” (Psalm 118:5)“The Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials.” (2 Peter 2:9)“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (Galatians 1:3-5)

NO APPEAL TO HEAVEN WITHOUT JUDGE APPROVAL?    

In May 2012, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit issued an aggressive, secular ruling in a “legislative” prayer case arising from a small town in western New York. In Town of Greece v. Galloway, the 2nd Circuit ruled that Greece’s permitting public prayer before town meetings violated the First Amendment. The court ruled in this manner despite the town’s highly inclusive policy that allowed even a practicing Wiccan and an atheist to offer civic prayers. No person’s attempt to offer a prayer was blocked.

Pray for righteous judges in the land. Pray that there will be an increase in the awareness of how stabilizing the honor of God and His Word is to a nation that puts its trust in Him. Our national motto: “IN GOD WE TRUST” should be enough to clarify that truth.

 “The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.” (Psalm 18:2)“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” (Psalm 91:2)“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” (Nahum 1:7)
