Conservatives Knew there was Liberal Media Bias; but This is Incredible

IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE NOW: ABC, CBS and CNN top executives all have siblings or spouses working directly for Obama

By Doug Ross

May 11, 2013

The Democrat Party and the media are indistinguishable from one another and it doesn’t take much digging to prove it.

You knew the mainstream media was biased, but this is incredible. It was revealed today that CBS News President David Rhodes’ brother is Obama Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, who was instrumental in rewriting the Benghazi talking points. But it gets worse. It is now learned that ABC President Ben Sherwood’s sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is a Special Assistant to Barack Obama on national security affairs. But even this isn’t it! CNN’s deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is the wife of Tom Nides, who until February was Hillary Clinton’s deputy.

Ben Rhodes is a top NSC advisor with absolutely no foreign policy or military experience. None! This idiot has advocated intervention both in Libya and now Syria. How has that worked out for us? He is responsible for helping to massage the Benghazi talking points to watered down drivel. His greatest accomplishment appears to be a Master’s Degree in fiction writing received from New York University. So perhaps we should call him Obama’s fiction writer!

In what may be a belated effort to salvage its reputation, or perhaps an effort to get the best scoop now that keeping quiet is out of the question, ABC published a story revealing that there were twelve revisions of the Benghazi memo. The final version eradicated all references to terrorists and al Qaeda. Nice work, Mr. Fiction Writer!

…The only mainstream media reporter really doing her job is CBS’s Sharyl Attkison. Attkison has also done a heroic job on the Fast N’ Furious Eric Holder gun running scandal. Now it appears CBS is pressuring her to leave. Gee, wonder why?

Whatever shred of credibility existed among the network news organizations has now been utterly obliterated.

The Pet Goat versus going to sleep during a terrorist attack. Cindy Sheehan versus Pat Smith. And Valerie Plame versus the Benghazi Four.

Gee, no bias there.

We have a fascist media on our hands, bound as tightly to the government as NPR. And it’s high time that we treat them as the pariahs they truly are.

ABC Reporter, Obama Press Team Member Tie the Knot

By Chris Ariens on August 1, 2012

Matthew Jaffe,  a reporter for ABC News and Univision who most recently covered the GOP primary, has married a member of Pres. Obama’s press team.

Jaffe married Katie Hogan, the president’s deputy press secretary, in Lake Geneva, WI over the weekend. Hogan and Jaffe are based in Chicago, which is home to the president’s re-election campaign headquarters.

ABC tells us Jaffe’s been reassigned to general news and is no longer covering politics. He had been focusing on the Latino vote in November’s election. Fluent in Spanish, he’s reported for Univision’s morning show and both the English and Spanish language Univision websites, as well as ABC News Radio and ABCNews.com.

WH Press Secretary Jay Carney Married to ABC News Reporter Claire Shipman

[..]Press Secretary. Carney is most known for his work at Time Magazine, which would make him a natural fit for a job in this White House. He’s also married to ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman.

Carney, a Yale University graduate, is a former Moscow correspondent for Time and was the magazine’s Washington bureau chief through the 2008 presidential campaign. He is married to Claire Shipman, a journalist for ABC News.

Am I the only one who finds this all a little too cozy?

Claire Shipman joined ABCNEWS Good Morning America as the show’s senior national correspondent in May 2001.

Shipman also serves as a substitute anchor on the news segments of Good Morning America and contributes to other ABCNEWS programs.

She is based out of the network’s Washington, D.C., bureau.

How will she provide unbiased coverage when she’s married to the White House Press Secretary?

Why Does MEDIA Tolerate Obama’s LIES? Liberal Biased Media Distorts and Manipulates the Truth to Promote Its Agenda

WHY DOES MEDIA TOLERATE OBAMA’S LIES?

by  JOHN NOLTE

June 18, 2012

The media loves to come up with catchphrases that boil down who they are and how things operate in the world of politics. Phrases such as, “It’s the cover up, not the crime,” or, “It’s the lie that gets you.” Both of these statements have always proven true, at least for every Republican under the sun, but most certainly not for Barack Obama.

According to Obama’s chief Palace Guard, Ben Smith, biographer David Maraniss has uncovered at least 38 lies in Obama’s biographical accounts of himself. Moreover, since New Media started vetting Obama this year, two other epic whoppers told by the President have been discovered: Bill Ayers was not

This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who is a professor of English … He is not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.

Ahem.

Ahem.

We’ve also learned that Barack Obama was a MEMBER of the New Party, which completely contradicts what his campaign told the media in 2008.

And yet, as we have already see, the media doesn’t at all care about being lied to. The unspoken excuse they’re using to sweep 40 lies under the rug is, “Well, this is about the past.” And yet…

Though they proved fake, “newly discovered” documents from then-President Bush’s time in the Texas Air National Guard threatened to consume his reelection bid. Why? Because the phony documents made it look as though Bush had lied about his time there — decades ago.

And let us never forget the unrelenting fact-checking surrounding Sarah Palin’s autobiography, which was released long after the 2008  election.

But Obama can lie and lie and lie and lie and lie and other than making an obligatory effort to report it, the President pays no price for lying, not even while looking the media straight in the eye while doing so.

Not a single mainstream journalist today is doing what we know ALL of them would do if Obama were a Republican: exactly what they attempted to do to Marco Rubio.

First off, the media would be outraged and indignant over being lied to. And what would follow is a perfect narrative storm that would demand Obama either correct the record, prove his assertions, or bridge these factual discrepancies.

On a daily basis, press briefings would become Thunderdome as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was inundated with demands that the President come clean and clear the record. And you can bet the cable networks would be filled with stories and talking heads explaining to us why this is relevant in 2012.

ANDREA MITCHELL SMEARS ROMNEY WITH DECEPTIVE EDIT

By Dana Loesch

June 18, 2012

MSNBC continued its tradition of leaning so far forward that its corporate head became lodged in its corporate backside today with a story on Mitt Romney and Wawas. Andrea Mitchell attempted to use a deceptively edited clip to persuade her audience that Romney is out of step with the average voter.

Sooper Mexican compared the edited clip with the full Romney remarks. They clearly show Romney was amazed at the ways in which private sector competition motivates businesses, a fundamental that the government lacks. Mitchell deliberately omitted this point to falsely portray Romney as a fool.

NBC Dumps Corey Booker, Punishes Out Spoken Black Democrat for Disagreeing With Obama. Obama Administration: Corey Booker is “Dead to Us”

NBC Dumps Corey Booker, Punishes Out Spoken Black Democrat for Disagreeing With Obama

by Warner Todd Huston

June 5, 2012

Newark, New Jersey Mayor Corey Booker is apparently now washed up. He went from being one of the most prominent up-and-coming black Democrats to being on the outside looking in merely because he said something that diverges from Obama’s war on capitalism. Now even NBC is kicking him out of its Meet The Press studios. Yep, ol’ Corey is finished.

Only two weeks after Mr. Booker demurred from attacking Mitt Romney, Bain Capitol, venture capitalists, private equity — heck, even capitalism in general — NBC has replaced Booker with another black politician that will better pay fealty to Obama’s campaign for a second term, one that is based on a war on capitalism.

For Meet The Press, out is Corey Booker and now in is Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.

Booker made himself a target of the media, leftists, and Obama supporters everywhere a few weeks ago by telling the audience of Meet The Pressthat all these attacks on capitalism perpetrated by Obama and his surrogates was “nauseating.”

On the NBC weekend talk show,Booker said that the negative ads in the presidential campaign are, “nauseating to me on both sides. It’s nauseating to the American public. Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity…”

Of course, a few days later Booker tried to walk back comments that were being widely used by conservatives and Republicans to lambaste Obama.

Then after a week of the lefty talkers, bloggers, and newsers excoriating Booker, his communications director resigned, though Booker’s office said that the resignation had nothing to do with the flap. Few believed that spin, though.

Now, the Old Media is punishing Booker further by removing him from one of its most venerable “news” shows.

All this for speaking out in favor of capitalism! Quite a crime, isn’t it?

It just goes to show that if you ever disagree with Obama you will be punished. It shows that the Democrat Party is not a party of free speech, free thought, and free expression. It also shows that the Old Media will do all it can to make sure no harsh words against Obama are uttered.

Obama Administration: Cory Booker is ‘Dead to Us’

Excerpt:

Newark mayor Cory Booker made the mistake of deviating from the Marxocrat Party line, and now he’s learning the hard way that illiberal modern liberals don’t tolerate dissent.  In fact, zey have vays of making you not talk.

And, it seems, of not talking to you.

As you may remember, Booker incurred Obama administration wrath after he expressed displeasure with the attacks on private equity firms and defended Bain Capital’s record.  Now the New York Post is reporting that a ranking administration official has said “He’s [Booker is] dead to us,” when describing “the prevailing feelings at the White House and Obama headquarters in Chicago,” writes the paper.  Wow, you get the feeling that the mayor should perhaps start his car remotely for a while.

The American People are seeing clearly for the first time just how Bias and Liberal all of our Major News Networks have become.  Rather then reporting the News to the American People they are Promoting nothing short of Full Fledged Socialist Propaganda at the Beckoning of this Socialist/Marxist President.

Case in Point

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) have had over 6,000 Arrests since its inception last year while the Tea Party Rallies of the last Two Years have recorded zero arrests except for outside agitators.

So, what was the News Media‘s Stand on all of this?

What was President Obama’s Stand while all of this was going on?

The OWS Violent Protests are a Direct Result of President Obama’s

Class Warfare Campaign Rhetoric

America needs to Hold this President Responsible for the Vile and Vulgar Protests we are seeing today in American Cities

Demand Truth in Reporting from the Main Stream Media Now !

This New Campaign Slogan for President Obama has Communist Roots.

MICHELLE MALKIN: WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH SOLEDAD?

by BEN SHAPIRO

March 15, 2012

Michelle Malkin’s latest syndicated column takes on Soledad O’Brien – and eviscerates her for her incredibly biased interview with Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak. As Michelle points out:

Turns out that O’Brien, a Harvard grad, has a rather emotional connection to Bell. As documented at my new Twitter curation/aggregation site Twitchy.com, O’Brien tweeted that it was a “rough day” for her when Bell passed away last fall. She wrote that she had “just started re-reading” one of his books and mourned again: “RIP Prof. Bell.” O’Brien also shared tributes to Bell from fellow Harvard prof and friend of Obama Charles Ogletree. That’s the same Professor Ogletree who bragged that he “hid” the Obama/Bell video during the 2008 campaign.

O’Brien failed to disclose her pro-Bell bias to viewers before her segments.

She goes on to discuss O’Brien’s political history – which, not surprisingly, is chock full of “racial/ethnic-centered journalism lobbying groups” and Obama support. “[L]iberal minority journalists simply can’t resist carrying water for Obama,” Malkin writes.

AUDIO: AL SHARPTON TRASHING ‘HOMOS,’ ‘CHINAMEN,’ ‘CRACKERS’

by JOHN NOLTE

March 14, 2012

If offensive slurs are a problem for the left, why does Al Sharpton have a primetime slot on MSNBC?

The left has started a war against Rush Limbaugh — a war it cannot win. Limbaugh said something for which he later apologized, and rather than accept that apology, the left and its media allies decided to exploit the situation, turning it into a crusade to take an opposing voice off the air.

Even the White House has jumped on this neo-fascist bandwagon. Not the Obama campaign. The White House. The People’s House.

This is, pure and simple, a crusade to censor political speech disguising itself as something else, and it’s a crusade led by Media Matters for America, the Obama political machine, and the mainstream media.

And as a result….

Today, Obama sits at 41% in opinion polls — his lowest approval rating ever. Part of this poll collapse most certainly has to do with a stagnant economy and gas prices, but a lot of it has to do with the fact that Obama has started a stupid war against a nonexistent war on women (which is really Obama’s war against the Catholic Church and religious liberty), and the fact that he has once again been found hanging out with another divisive, radical racialist.

As a result, Obama now looks like a Chicago political thug and nothing like a President of the United States. This was especially apparent when he tried to draw Limbaugh into this war on women nonsense.

Obviously, Obama’s crusade is backfiring, and will continue to fail. In their fever to bring Rush down, Obama and the left have made a huge tactical error in setting a standard of which they themselves are the worst violators — especially in the fever swamps of MSNBC.

It’s been MSNBC that’s grabbed Media Matters’ anti-Rush talking points and run with them 24/7 on the network.

Phil Griffin

MSNBC President Phil Griffin

Yet their own Ed Schultz is the creator of the original Slut-gate, when he used that word to describe conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham. And let us never forget Keith Olbermann’s dehumanizing rant against Michelle Malkin, while he was still with the once-legendary Peacock Network. (Much more about MSNBC hosts’ attacks on women here.)

Breaking today at the American Spectator is more bad news for a network devoting so much of its airtime to creating a rule that says someone should be pulled off the air for anything he or she has said that might be considered offensive.

Using MSNBC’s own standards, should the man who once said the following be allowed to hold a primetime MSNBC slot?

David Dinkins, you wanna be the only nigger on television, only nigger in the newspaper, only nigger that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only nigger problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are.

That’s MSNBC’s Al Sharpton–many years ago, but just as shocking today. I can already hear the excuse — that it’s okay for him to use the N-word because he’s black. But I wonder what CNN’s Roland Martin will think of this:

White folks was in the cave when we were building empires. We learned to admire them, but they knew to admire us. We built pyramids without a ____, ____ new architecture ____. We talked philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.

“Greek homos.”

Just a few weeks ago, Roland Martin was suspended from CNN after GLAAD took offense to a few Super Bowl tweets few but GLAAD could ever find offensive — tweets that never even broached the subject of homosexuality.

“Homo,” of course is an anti-gay slur, especially within the context you hear in Sharpton’s words.

[....]

True, Sharpton said these things long before he was on MSNBC. But his history was well known, and the lack of outrage from the left when he was elevated to primetime highlights the hypocrisy of their anti-Rush censorship crusade. MSNBC President Phil Griffin knew that Sharpton said this sort of stuff regularly–that, in fact, such bigotry and radical rhetoric was an integral part of the Sharpton persona. He hired him nonetheless. One has to wonder if Brian Williams, Matt Lauer, and Tom Brokaw are proud.

Over to you, MSNBC!

ADDED: More Slut-gate hypocrisy here featuring the White House and Letterman!

***Add a little Ed Schultz to the MSNBC mix***

MSNBC’S SCHULTZ HAS LONG RECORD OF NASTINESS

by BEN SHAPIRO

March 15, 2012

MSNBC President Phil Griffin, who hired notorious race-baiter Al Sharpton to broadcast in primetime, has now devoted his entire primetime lineup to attacking Rush Limbaugh over his Sandra Fluke criticism. And one of those leading the charge is host Ed Schultz.

Several nights ago, Schultz ripped Rush while denying that his own characterization of Laura Ingraham as a “slut” was in any way similar. He explained, unconvincingly, that his apology came on MSNBC, while Rush’s came on his website – a silly distinction, since Rush’s website gets heavy traffic, and the apology was covered in full. That didn’t stop Schultz, though. He had Fluke on his show, where she proceeded to excoriate Rush; he even had guests on to talk about boycotting Rush.

This is hypocrisy of the highest order. Schultz is a massive bully, and a routine purveyor of hatemongering rhetoric. He says Republicans “want to see you dead” and want to “make money off your dead corpse!” He said about Dick Cheney that we ought to rip out his heart “and kick it around and stuff it back in him.” He implied that Joe Lieberman’s wife was a “whore.” He called Sen. Harry Reid “ball-less” and stated that the elderly were the “Almost Dead.”

As Brent Bozell points out in an open letter to Griffin:

You hired Schultz in 2009. Then you promoted him. Twice. And let’s not forget how you fawned over Schultz to the Los Angeles Times just a few weeks ago saying “This is a guy who understands how to connect with real people.” What’s worse is that your pride of this character assassin isn’t an isolated incident. As President of MSNBC, you oversee a “news outlet” which employs other hate mongers who fling around similarly extreme, hate-filled and politically-motivated rhetoric.

If what Rush said is so offensive that it deserves your network’s obsession with having him removed, then what are you going to do about a host who has a history of insults a hundred-fold worse than anything Limbaugh has ever said? Unless you fire Ed Schultz, you are a complete hypocrite.

Bozell is exactly correct – and he even calls for Griffin to resign. But the answer here is to stop the hypocrisy, not to fire people for taking advantage of their First Amendment rights, no matter how stupid the things they say are. And Ed Schultz says plenty of stupid and offensive things daily.

OBAMA INVITES TRIG PALIN BIRTHER ANDREW SULLIVAN FOR DINNER

by BEN SHAPIRO

March 15, 2012

According to the Washington Post, the Obama White House invited 362 people to its state dinner for the United Kingdom. One familiar face will be gracing the red carpet: Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast.

For those who don’t remember, Andrew Sullivan is the once-conservative columnist who shifted dramatically to the left over the past few years – and reserved a special hatred in his heart for Sarah Palin and her special needs son Trig.

Early on in the campaign, Sullivan suggested that Trig was not actually Sarah Palin’s son– he was Bristol’s son, and Sarah had claimed him as her own to cover up Bristol’s pregnancy. Her oft-recounted labor drama, said Sullivan, was possibly nonsense; it was more likely that she had made it up. As Sullivan wrote in August 2008, “the noise around this story is now deafening, and the weirdness of the chronology sufficient to rise to the level of good faith questions.” Actually, the noise wasn’t deafening – it was just that Sullivan was tone-deaf.

But Sullivan didn’t drop his crusade against Palin and Trig.

In February 2010, Sullivan wrote that he believed that Palin had named her son Trig after the “medical term for Down Syndrome … Trisomy-21 or Trisomy-g. It is often shortened in medical slang to Tri-G.”

In June 2011, Sullivan continued the “Trig isn’t Sarah’s child” meme, writing:

It’s possible that Palin simply made up her drama of labor, or exaggerated it for effect, when in fact it was a routine, if rare, pregnancy, and she had mild warnings that the birth may be premature, and she gussied that up into a tall tale of her pioneer spirit, guided by her doctor, who refused to take the NYT’s calls as soon as Palin hit the big time. I think that’s the likeliest explanation, given the sheer world-historical weirdness of the alternative.

But it’s also possible that she never had that baby at all.

Sullivan has justified his Palin obsession by writing:

She has made speech after speech citing her infant son – just as her teenage daughter has been pushed into every public arena imaginable. There is nothing private about Palin’s story about her child with Down Syndrome. Nothing. To examine the details of a story already told in such detail in the public sphere as a core campaign platform is violating no one’s privacy. It is asking relevant questions of a narrative plainly and publicly provided by Palin herself. I have used no facts except those already in the public domain.

Sullivan is a hateful bully. There are no two ways about it. Doubting the parentage of someone’s son based on sheer, nasty speculation in the face of all available evidence sinks to the reprehensible. It’s a hell of a lot worse than the absurd leftist narrative about Slut-gate. It’s White House-backed lunacy. And it’s the latest in a series. If, as we reported yesterday, Louis C.K. did indeed visit the White House, this is just the most recent example of an Administration far too comfortable with nasty bullies – and deeply hypocritical when it comes to its pursuit of so-called incivility on the other side of the aisle.

Will Andrew Sullivan “Rehash” this if Romney is GOP Presidential Candidate?

The Andrew Sullivan Double Standard

MARCH 15, 2008<<<NOTE DATE

BY ED MORRISSEY

The reaction of Obama supporters to Jeremiah Wright has certainly been instructive, especially those who had plenty to say about Mitt Romney and Mormonism last year. Today’s example is Andrew Sullivan, who wondered whether Romney wore Mormon underwear and posted repeatedly about the polygamy that Romney’s faith repudiated over a century earlier. Today, he’s singing a different tune about Barack Obama, whose minister didn’t make his racially inflammatory statements 100 years ago or even thirty years ago:

All I can say is that very, very few public figures have been so candid about why and how they found the message of Jesus so compelling, or have explained their faith journey so pellucidly (certainly not our spiritually inarticulate current president). The appeal of that church to Obama was not anger or racism or the ugliness in some of Jeremiah Wright’s tub-thumping. What Obama discovered – as a previous atheist – was the spiritual power of Christian hope. …

I don’t know how you can read Obama’s writing or listen to any of his speeches and believe that Wright’s ugliest messages are what Obama believes or has ever believed.

Bear in mind that all of these speeches took place while Obama attended Wright’s church and contributed to his ministry. Here’s Andrew on Mitt Romney’s responsibility for racism that his church publicly repudiated 30 years ago, and against which Romney repeatedly argued. He agrees with Christopher Hitchens’ statement:

Mitt Romney was an adult in 1978. We need to know how he justified this to himself, and we need to hear his self-criticism, if he should chance to have one.

[Andrew] The awful history of the LDS church’s treatment of African-Americans requires an accounting by any leading Mormon …

Let’s make this clear. Romney had a responsibility to explain the racism of the Mormons, which they themselves repudiated in 1978, including “self-criticism” for being a Mormon during that period. However, with Obama belonging to and supporting a church in which his self-described “moral compass” preaches that the US created the HIV virus to commit genocide and calling the nation the “the US of KKK-A”, Obama gets a pass because … he writes so beautifully of the faith he found through Jeremiah Wright?

Liberal Biased Media on Display: Media Plays Up GOP Association, Hides Dem Connection In Two Similar Stories

=================

=========

From Big Journalism:

By Warner Todd Huston

Media Plays Up GOP Association, Hides Dem Connection In Two Similar Stories

January 22, 2012

Last week two political operatives were arrested in separate incidents, one Democrat and one Republican. It certainly isn’t news that political operatives sometimes break the law, but how the different incidents were reported is typical of how the Old Media establishment uses guilt by association to tar Republicans but rarely does the same thing to take swipes at Democrats.

The similarity in the two stories is that both of the accused are former staffers of high profile politicians. The Democrat was an Obama campaign staffer while the Republican was a staffer of the Republican Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker. Neither currently works for those high profile pols, but only the Republican was linked to his former boss. The Democrat’s link to Obama was mostly ignored by the media. [Emphasis added]

Story One: Some Guy Arrested

We’ll begin with the tale of Iowa Democrat operative Zachary Edwards who tried to steal the identity of a rival Republican in order to use that identity to get the Republican in trouble.

Edwards tried to use the identity of Iowa Secretary of State, Republican Matt Schultz (and/or Schultz’s brother) to illegally obtain some sort of state benefits so that he could then claim that the Republicans were illegally obtaining state benefits. This Edwards fellow hoped he could smear the GOP Sec. of State as engaging in some sort of unethical behavior. (The Iowa Republican blog has more on the fight between Schultz and Iowa Democrats)

Now, as it happens Edwards is not only a member of a politically connected Democrat consulting firm, Link Strategies — a company with long-standing ties to powerful Iowa Democrat Senator Tom Harkin — but Edwards was also a member of Obama’s Iowa team in 2007/08. Edwards’ bio has since been scrubbed from the Link Strategies page but read in part, “In September 2007, Zach joined the Obama New Media department as co-director of the Nevada New Media team and then moved on to direct New Media operations in five other primary states (New Mexico, Texas, North Carolina, and South Dakota).”

For a screen shot of Edwards memory-holed bio from the Link Strategy site, see the Iowa Grounds blog.

So, how was Edwards’ arrest reported? For one thing, it was hard to find Edwards’ Democrat affiliation and his past role as a top Obama campaign staffer in stories of this incident.

It is interesting to note that the story of the criminal action by this former Obama staffer is not easy to find. Few Old Media outlets bothered to cover it.

Story Two: Those Darn Criminal Republicans

Our second story is that of the arrest of Mr. Tim Russell of Wisconsin. Russell was a former aide to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and is accused of stealing funds intended for wounded veterans and families of U.S. soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan — an odious crime, indeed.

Russell had been a Walker campaign staffer and county aide up until the Governor took the top seat in the state but has since not been working for him. Along with two others, Russell was arrested for a scheme to defraud the state of $42,000 that was earmarked for veterans.

So, how did the Old Media handle this tale of criminality? Unsurprisingly, Russell’s ties to Walker and his party affiliation were either in the headline or the very first paragraph, if not both. And there were dozens of stories posted on this incident, too.

  • The New York Times slammed Walker with guilt by association in its headline and first paragraph.
  • Reuters did the same thing as the NYT.
  • The Associated Press follows suit by mentioning Walker in the headline and the first paragraph.
  • Green Bay’s NBC affiliate also features Walker in the headline, etc.
  • In a companion story, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also prominently features the perp’s party affiliation.
  • Politico pulls the same stunt as the others.

There are more stories than these few, of course. In fact, there are far more stories about this former Walker aide than there are about the Obama operative. Politico, for instance, never reported on the Democrat criminal. Apparently the news of the criminal actions of a former staffer for a mere governor is far bigger news than that of a former staffer of the President of the United States. [Emphasis added]

In any case, this is a perfect illustration of how the Old Media goes for the jugular when reporting on criminal Republicans compared to how they (don’t) go after Democrats in similar instances.

It Figures… UC Davis Students AGREED to Be Pepper Sprayed Before Incident

=========================

=============

November 22, 2011

From Gateway Pundit:

For the record…

The UC Davis students who were holding the illegal protest on campus last weekend were warned that they would be pepper sprayed by the campus police. Not only that… But you can see in the video below that the students AGREED in the video to be pepper sprayed.

For some reason this didn’t make it into any of the liberal media reports on the incident; just like the fact that the protesters were chanting “f*ck the police” never made it into any reports.

Via P/Oed Patriot:

Sorry Libs… The UC Davis Pepper Spray Incident Was “Standard Police Procedure” (Video)

How to shut down a row of screeching libs in 4 easy swoops…

In this image taken from video, a police officer uses pepper spray Friday as he walks down a line of Occupy demonstrators sitting on the ground at the University of California, Davis. (MSNBC)

Sorry libs… You can quit your squawking and take your leftie-indoctrinated butts back to class. The UC Davis pepper spray incident was standard police procedure.

On Friday a group of UC Davis students blocked the campus walkway with arms linked and started chanting, From Davis to Greece, F*ck the police! Moments later the little darlings were doused with pepper spray. This was only after several attempts by campus police to get them to move.

Of course, the liberal media only played the part where the students were sprayed down.
But after two days of leftist outrage we find out that this was standard police procedure.

This comes from MSNBC:

A law enforcement official who watched the clip called the use of force “fairly standard police procedure.”
Story: Occupy protests spread to college campuses

The protest was held in support of the overall Occupy Wall Street movement and in solidarity with protesters at the University of California, Berkeley who were jabbed by police with batons on Nov. 9.

Charles J. Kelly, a former Baltimore Police Department lieutenant who wrote the department’s use of force guidelines, said pepper spray is a “compliance tool” that can be used on subjects who do not resist, and is preferable to simply lifting protesters.

“When you start picking up human bodies, you risk hurting them,” Kelly said. “Bodies don’t have handles on them.”

After reviewing the video, Kelly said he observed at least two cases of “active resistance” from protesters. In one instance, a woman pulls her arm back from an officer. In the second instance, a protester curls into a ball. Each of those actions could have warranted more force, including baton strikes and pressure-point techniques.

“What I’m looking at is fairly standard police procedure,” Kelly said.

Maybe next time they should spray with non-toxic purple dye to mark the protestors.  Maybe then MAYBE the Parents of these misfit college students will be yelling…….SHAME ON YOU.

One of the Secret Weapons the Corrupt (Liberal Biased) Mainstream Media Uses in their Never-ending Quest to Palace Guard for the Leftists is Context

From Big Journalism:

*Updated* #OccupyWallStreet: The Rap Sheet, So Far

By Jim Nolte

October 28, 2011

One of the secret weapons the corrupt mainstream media uses in their never-ending quest to Palace Guard for the left is context. For example, when it came to the Tea Party, the MSM was notorious for amplifying a single incident (that was usually a lie) and using it to attempt to smear and define an entire movement. This is what you do when you want to quickly take out a political enemy.

The MSM’s contextual game changes, however, when their desire is to strengthen a movement and give it credibility and room to grow. By dutifully reporting individual incidents but not reporting on the growing scope and size of Occupy Wall Street lawlessness, the MSM is willfully covering up the violence, vandalism, and anti-Semitism that truly does define this movement.

Moreover, by intentionally keeping the pieces of this story scattered, the MSM is allowed to have their cake and eat it too. No one can accuse them of not reporting these incidents, but by choosing not to bring the pieces together, the MSM ensures the least amount of public relations damage is done to the Occupiers.

What I’ve collected below is far from comprehensive but still shows over 75 incidents of sexual assault, violence, vandalism, anti-Semitism, extortion, perversion, and lawlessness. [Now updated to 100 incidents]

The MSM could easily tell the story of how this violence-prone movement is becoming an increasing threat to our society. After all, my research below is the result of nothing more than Twitter and Google. Among others, The New York Times, Washington Post, Politico, and the LA Times have willfully chosen not to use the resources at their disposal to give the public an honest look at this growing menace. In their partisan minds, truth doesn’t trump agenda.

The list is in no particular order. Like the Occupiers themselves, it’s unruly, disorganized, messy and not focused solely on the nation’s media centers. The movement is spreading across America and bringing with it their outrageous and appalling behavior.

Occupy Wall Street is too big to jail

by: PW EDITORIAL BOARD

october 27 2011

Painfully, the nation has watched, during the last 48 hours, as police departments in  Oakland, Atlanta and elsewhere used excessive force against thousands of peaceful demonstrators.

The disturbing scenes of women, children, seniors and even disabled people running under clouds of tear gas and being hit by flash grenades and rubber bullets are reminiscent of attacks in the middle of the last century against civil rights and antiwar demonstrators. The scenes are hard to stomach, also, because they look too much like what is happening today in the streets of Damascus, Syria.

The vicious crackdowns are an assault on democracy and they endanger the public safety. In Atlanta and Oakland both, as in cities elsewhere, many of the demonstrators who were attacked are people who have lost their homes, their jobs or the vital services they require just to keep going every day.

We applaud statements by the leadership of the AFL-CIO and by unions and their allies all over the country that have condemned these attacks. We urge the elected officials in the cities involved to call a halt to the violation of the democratic rights of their people.

Our best wishes and prayers go out to Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen who was critically injured in Oakland after being hit by a police projectile at the rally in that city on Oct. 25.

Opponents of the movement would like nothing more than to reduce Occupy Wall Street to a fight between the police and several hundred who want to spend the night out on the streets.

ABC’s Own Story Doesn’t Support Shameless Pro-Obama Headline. **Plus MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow calls Obama “Boy King”**

First this:

ABC’s Own Story Doesn’t Support Shameless Pro-Obama Headline

By John Nolte

September 9, 2011

***UPDATE: ABC News changed their headline. Somehow they’ve made it even more dishonest:

David Stockman Criticizes Obama’s Jobs Plan, Other Economists Cheer

Does this sound like a cheer from one of their non-Stockman economists?

“So this is an incomplete proposal.”

However, Swagel said the tax cuts on wages and on investment would be helpful. Swagel said he is waiting to see further details[.]

The good news is that Jake Tapper’s broadcast report pretty much stuck to the basic facts. Jake’s a gem. If the MSM was made up of Jake Tappers, there would be no Big Journalism.  

Sometimes Obama’s media Palace Guards get in the Tank and leave a mark, and sometimes they look like Michael Dukakis.

Here’s a an example of the latter, an utterly shames ABC News headline:

Economists Support President’s Job Proposals, Worry About Do-Nothing Congress

My guess is that some editor watered this down from the originally submitted, ”Obama Could Save the World If Not For Those Goddamn Republicans.”

But even more laughable than the headline is the fact that ABC’s own story doesn’t support it. Naturally, you have to read deeper into the piece for the full skinny, but here are a couple of samples found at the bottom of page 1 through page 2:

David Stockman, former director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan, was skeptical of the plan.  “This should scare the living daylights out of investors–it’s just more Keynesian poison,” Stockman said. “Obama lectured us about the simple math, but the part of that he still doesn’t get is that Uncle Sam is broke, and that we can’t afford one more dime for his stimulus 6.0 plan.”

But-but-but the headline told me “Economists Support President’s Job Proposals, not “Some Economists Support President’s Job Proposals.”

But wait, there’s more:

RON REAGAN CALLS DICK CHENEY A WAR CRIMINAL… AGAIN

Ron Reagan — son of the former president — has called former Vice President Dick Cheney a war criminal… again.

Reagan told Clarence Thomas of the Chicago Tribune that Cheney was a war criminal because of his support for waterboarding, while the two were discussing Cheney’s recent interview with NBC.

“Not to hammer the point at all, but any neutral reading of say, the U.N. Convention Against Torture makes it pretty clear that if you support waterboarding and you enact that sort of a policy, you’re guilty of a war crime,” Reagan said.

This isn’t the first time Reagan has accused Cheney of being a war criminal.

Below at 1:34, Reagan makes the accusation on Joy Behar’s show. His statements sparked a controversy in the media world, and earned him a response from Bill O’Reilly just a few days later:

Teamster Thug attacks Tea Party member at Socialist Moveon.org rally in Sacramento CA

Here’s an event that I captured at the “Moveon.org” sponsored Union Protest Rally In Sacramento on Saturday February 26th. The punk doing the shoving is Richard Andazola, 28, of Stockton, CA. This is obviously and unprovoked attack.

In it, you see two union thugs giving our group a hard time on the bullhorn, and then one of them crosses the street to attacks one of our members. Afterwards, the thug lies about what happened to a news reporter (and I’m assuming the police). The police broke it up very quickly. So is this how Unions got so strong in America??

TeaParty and SFBAY 912 member Tomas M. caught the same incident from a different angle.
