Staples Pushes Back on Obama Smear, Networks Ignore

 

In an interview with BuzzFeed on Tuesday, President Obama attacked office supply chain Staples over accusations that the company was cutting back on worker hours to avoid the ObamaCare health insurance coverage mandate for their employees: “…when I hear large corporations that make billions of dollars in profits trying to blame our interest in providing health insurance as an excuse for cutting back workers’ wages, shame on them.”

 

Washington Post Devotes 2,223 Words to Probing Scott Walker’s College Life

 

The Washington Post on Thursday conducted another of its obsessive investigations into the younger life of a Republican presidential candidate. This time, it was 2,223 words probing Scott Walker, his activities while at Marquette University and why the future governor did not graduate. Writer David A. Fahrenthold focused on allegations that Walker didn’t work hard in French class and that his supporters in a student election stole copies of the campus newspaper.

 

NBC Ignores Militant Atheism, Liberalism of Accused Killer of Muslims

 

NBC’s Today on Thursday ignored the militant atheism and liberalism of a North Carolina man accused of executing three Muslims on Tuesday night. ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning at least mentioned Craig Stephen Hicks’s hatred of faith, but none of the networks highlighted the individual’s affinity for programs such as the Rachel Maddow show.

 

ABC and CBS Ignore Keystone Pipeline Passing Congress; NBC Only Gives News 11 Seconds

 

When it came to the major broadcast networks covering the full congressional passage of the Keystone XL oil pipeline on their Wednesday night newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir and the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley chose to ignore the story completely and left their viewers in the dark on this issue. Meanwhile, NBC Nightly News made it the second topic covered on its broadcast and while it was the first network evening news mention of Keystone since all three did on January 6

 

CBS’s Pelley Fondly Remembers Bob Simon’s ‘Rage for Every Injustice’

 

As CBS mourned the loss of veteran 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon after he was killed in a car accident on Wednesday, Thursday’s CBS This Morning invited CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley to share his thoughts on the late journalist. While eulogizing his longtime friend and colleague, Pelley took an odd turn when he praised Simon’s advocacy, not objectivity: “Bob had a sharp intolerance for injustice and he had equal-opportunity rage for every injustice committed in every corner of this Earth.”

 

Chris Hayes: Killing of Three Muslims in N.C. Serves as a ‘Trayvon Martin’ and ‘Michael Brown Moment’

 

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes took about a minute and a half out of his show All In on Thursday night in between guests to give his thoughts on the recent killing of three Muslim students in North Carolina and, naturally, he brought their minority status into the picture by proclaiming their deaths to be a “galvanizing” “Trayvon Martin moment” and “Michael Brown moment for Muslim-Americans.”

 

Biden Affectionately Refers to Former Iowa Congressman as His ‘Old Butt Buddy’; Networks Ignore

 

Speaking at Drake University in Iowa on Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden was running through a list of dignitaries that were there for his remarks and referred to former Iowa Democratic Representative Neal Smith as his “old butt buddy” and told Smith that “I miss you man.” On Thursday night, the major networks ignored the story and didn’t even one of its lighthearted news briefs to it (as the networks often do in the second half of their programs).

 

Charlie Sheen Hails Brian Williams As ‘True Patriot’ and ‘Hero’

 

Adding to the myriad of problems for Brian Williams, actor Charlie Sheen has voiced his support for the embattled NBC Nightly News anchor. In an open letter released on Wednesday, the famously erratic celebrity praised Williams [grammar as written]: “First off, THANK YOU, for 24 years of inimitable professionalism and top shelf brilliance, as a stone cold passion driven and (PERFECTLY) fact based journalist….Now and forever you are a true Patriot and a Hero of mine until the day i leave this star crossed imperfect Rock we call Earth…”

ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ Finally Ends Midterm Blackout

 

After failing to mention the upcoming midterm election a single time since he took over the anchor desk of ABC’s World News Tonight on September 1, on Monday, David Muir finally informed viewers that a political contest with “enormous” stakes was just days away: “The countdown is on, this evening, to the midterm elections tonight. Your voice, your vote. Just eight days to go before this election. The stakes? Enormous. President Obama, already battling with a Republican House, will he soon face a Republican Senate?” It had been 137 days since the ABC evening newscast had made any mention of the 2014 midterms. The last story on the campaign occurred on June 11, when Muir – coincidentally filling in for then-World News anchor Diane Sawyer – reported on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor losing his Virginia congressional primary to candidate Dave Brat.

 

CBS Wonders If a Scott Walker Loss Will ‘Send a Message’ Nationwide About His ‘Policies and Politics’?

 

With the midterm elections one week away from Tuesday, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley profiled the race in Wisconsin for governor as incumbent Governor and Republican Scott Walker faces off against Democratic candidate Mary Burke. While it’s certainly worth covering governor’s races across the country, CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds chose to use the occasion to go after Walker and his policies by asking Burke if a victory over Walker would “send a message to the rest of the country about the kind of policies and politics that he practices?”

 

Flummoxed Charlie Rose on Midterm Anger: ‘Why Is It They Don’t Like’ Obama?

 

The CBS This Morning crew on Tuesday alternated between confusion as to why Barack Obama may be driving Republicans to a big midterm victory and strident declarations that the GOP would have no mandate. Co-host Charlie Rose talked with political director John Dickerson and wondered of disenchanted voters: “So, why is it they don’t like this President so much? Is it a spillover from ObamaCare or something else?” Co-host Norah O’Donnell pre-spun the bad news: “If Republicans take control, they’re going to win in six Senate seats that Mitt Romney won by double digits in the last presidential election. Where’s the mandate for compromise in that?”

 

Norah O’Donnell Admits to Throwing ‘a Softball of a Question’ at Elizabeth Warren

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appeared on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning to discuss next week’s midterm elections and the three CBS hosts eagerly threw softball questions at the Massachusetts Democrat. During the interview, Norah O’Donnell asked Senator Warren “what’s going to happen if Republicans take control?” before admitting “I guess that was a softball of a question, wasn’t it?”

 

On MSNBC, Graham Nash Blasts Koch Bros.; ‘Execution’ of Michael Brown

 

On Monday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough prompted hippie icon Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, and Nash fame to promote his new song about the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Nash wildly contended that “what happened with…almost, the execution of Michael Brown, we had to say something.” He also took a shot at a regular boogeyman for MSNBC: the Koch brothers: “It’s appalling how many climate change deniers there are in this world that are paid to make sure that the Koch brothers can still sell all the stuff to us. And I often wonder, don’t the Koch brothers have children? Don’t they have grandchildren? Don’t they know what they’re doing in this quest for more money?”

Wisconsin Fraud…

How much is due to Milwaukee’s proximity to Chicago?

Signature checkers are on track to find between 100,000-200,000 invalid signatures on WI Recall petitions, out of approximately 1 million submitted.  It’s too little to stop the recall election being certified, but is a good indication of massive fraud.

Which recently made this list?

And appears to be reflected by the current pResident in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Is president Obama simply another Third World tyrant corrupting the government?   Where does he offer even a shred of honesty in speech or action?    Why is Senative Majority Leader the DEMOCRAT Harry Reid allow the U.S. Senate over which he presides to join the Obama dysfunctional government  by paralyzing the Senate of its responsibilities as if the body doesn’t exist?
