The third and fourth stories on ABC News' web page, in relatively small print, relate to Benghazi and the president's shameful refusal to really answer questions about what happened there. The lead story, in large headline type and with a picture? "Sixth Sense: Mom Predicts Baby's Near-Fatal Illness" As if that weren't enough, in a more prominent position than the Benghazi stories, and with a large dramatic picture of a flaming cross is a story about "KKK Resurgence." How can these people live with themselves?
Comments: He's got a screen shot, and it's hard to find the Benghazi story.
One problem I have with the criticism of evident strong bias in the lamestream media is a reluctance to name names. The perpetrators slink by, day after day, as the critics name a large amorphous thing called the media.
The active distortion of the news across the complicit mainstream news media has become too obvious to hide. This is a betrayal of professionalism and a betrayal of trust. The leftist news media are morally bankrupt as well as financially bankrupt.
Their whitewash and coverup of the ugly betrayal of our troops and Ambassador in Benghazi is just the latest outrage. They have supported 6 weeks of lies, spin and manipulation of blame from the Obama regime. It is the lies and spin, stupid.
I turned on Nightline last night, and saw the KKK story, with a hooded person screaming about obama. And I thought, you have to give the devil (ABC) their due, as they make yet another campaign contribution to hussein obama. But they are losing their subtle touch, hey?
It has moved to the top of the list on my brower now under "Latest Headlines" butJake Tapper is clearly the ONLY serious journalist at ABC. The real question is how stupid and uninformed could anyone possibly believe anything, anything that the Idiot-in-Chief is saying?
And when are people going to notice that every Democrat president we have is a pathological liar?
If there has been a resurgence of Racism, as some in the Media have claimed, they have only themselves to blame. Where else do we hear proper criticism of this President to be Racist? If we mention 'Chicago', 'Food Stamps', 'Welfare', and many other properly defined words in the English Language, we're 'Racist' or 'speaking in code'. We see America dying, yet, the last I heard, 90 percent of Blacks are STILL going to be voting for this 'Man-Caused-Disaster'.
Meanwhile that same media reports glowingly the words of parasites on society, who happen to be Black, squealing about 'Obama-phones' and 'Obama's Stash' (all paid with our tax-payer money) or the billions wasted on Solyndra and other 'Green' firms (How many Obama bundlers are tied to failed Green Firms AND to mid-East Terrorists?).
America is dying the death of a thousand cuts, wielded by and in the name of, Blacks and some other 'self-identified' minority groups. If anger, no, FURY at the situation is Racist, then count me in.
Benghazi is simply the last straw. Gee, thanks, Chrissy at MSNBC and others. For years I though I was tolerant and accepting, wanting these other groups to have a hand up and join me as equals in society. Now they can simply struggle for acceptance like my ancestors did. I don't give a damn anymore.
"How can these people live with themselves?" It is probably quite easy for most of them to do so, since everything suggests that they are proud, not ashamed of their behavior. No doubt they see themselves as being on the side of the angels, and their adversaries -us- as being the true enemies of all that is good. One imagines that they often ask themselves the very same question: how can those people, i.e. us, live with themselves? Such is the depth of the divide between us and them.
Perhaps there may be a few in the media who have their doubts - who are in some instances even actively opposed to the partisan propaganda that is peddled as news. But what are they to do? Speaking out would cost them in all kinds of ways, beginning for many with their employment. I am glad not to be in the position such people find themselves.
The harvest of bias and untruth now being reaped is from a crop planted years ago and tended with care over an entire generation. Unless Americans recapture their universities and the educational system from the control of enemies of the American way of life, nothing but more of the same can be expected.
Did you see Geraldo on O'Reilly last night? He blamed Romney for not going after obama on the consulate attack - not the press. He defended obama for his stonewalling because of the upcoming election. He reasoned that Republicans would use that info for partisan reasons.
Geraldo informed us that he is a Republican about a month ago. Does anyone believe that? He's a card-carrying member of the 4th Estate.
Matt Damon will speak passionately in support of America´s public school system and their teachers - but he won´t send his children there.Opening himself up to accusations of hypocrisy, the Hollywood actor, famed for his left wing politics, revealed his ´moral dilemma´ in an interview published over the weekend - and bizarrely blamed his decision on the fact that public schools aren´t ´progressive´ enough. Revealing he is to move to Los Angeles from New York, Damon, 42, claimed he didn´t ´have a choice´ when it came to his four daughters being enrolled into private schools there
President Obama will travel to Desert Vista High School in Phoenix next week to highlight housing and the middle class. The speech, scheduled for Tuesday morning, would be the latest in a series of talks on the progress made and the challenges that remain as the U.S. slowly recovers from a recession. It revisits themes that Obama spoke about during his first presidential visit to Arizona in February.(snip)Obama has delivered campaign-style speeches in the past two weeks on investing in infrastructure, lowering the cost of college loans and overhauling the tax code
President Barack Obama privately told Democratic senators Wednesday he is now personally involved in resolving a heated dispute over how Obamacare treats Capitol Hill aides and lawmakers, according to senators in the meeting. The president’s commitment was delivered at the beginning of Obama’s remarks to Senate Democrats during a closed-door session. At issue is whether Obama’s health care law allows the federal government to continue to pay part of the health insurance premiums for members of Congress and thousands of Hill aides when they are nudged onto health exchanges.
For incoming NBC News boss Deborah Turness, the task of turning around the embattled news division just got tougher. “ABC World News With Diane Sawyer” scored a narrow victory over “NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams” last week, breaking his 243-week winning streak. Sawyer beat Williams among viewers 25-to-54 years old, the most important category for advertisers on news. Coverage of the George Zimmerman trial and the birth of the royal baby helped “World News” win by a narrow margin of 38,000 viewers. ABC drew 1.917 million viewers, compared with 1.879 million at NBC.
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
A Thai couple who were struck and killed by lightning had gone to the Grand Canyon as part of their honeymoon, according to the cousin of the man who died. Aram Kawewong and Ratchaya Tantranon had traveled to the United States from Thailand and were killed July 23 by a single bolt of lightning at a LeFevre Scenic Overlook on Arizona 89A in northern Arizona. Jeralynn Kozak, from Green Acres, Fla., said she is the cousin of Kawewong. She said the couple were married July 10 and were near the Grand Canyon as
There was no conciliatory phone call, no heart-to-heart talk to soothe the tensions. No one knows exactly when President Barack Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain went from bitter rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign and foes over health care and national security to bipartisan partners.Yet in recent months, an alignment on high-profile domestic issues — not to mention an eye on their respective legacies — has transformed Obama and McCain into Washington´s most unexpected odd couple. The Arizona senator is a regular visitor to the West Wing and in near-daily contact with senior White House officials.
Jane Fonda´s turn as Nancy Reagan has outraged fans of the former first lady but the actress says "The Gipper´s" wife is happy she landed the role. "I don´t think that whatever differences there might be in our politics really matters you know," says the actress in a new clip promoting the film ´The Butler´ which follows the life of a White House worker who served eight presidents. A vocal liberal, Fonda sparked outraged in the 1970´s when she toured North Vietnam, earning the moniker "Hanoi Jane" and critics blasted her casting as Nancy Reagan when it was announced
President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as “great” and tell him they are “all good ideas.”Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy.The address didn’t include any new proposals on the economy, and Republicans criticized Obama for giving an address that was more of the same. But Obama said the news media often praises his ideas."It’s interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of you’ve said before; some of them sound great,
A few stars visited the White House on Monday to chat about Obamacare, the AP reports: Obama stopped by a private White House meeting Monday with celebrities including singer Jennifer Hudson and actors Amy Poehler, Michael Cera and Kal Penn. The White House says the artists expressed interest in helping spread the word about the health insurance marketplaces opening Oct. 1.The White House says Obama told the artists they could help reach young uninsured Americans who will be vital to his signature law´s success. Insurers need healthy young customers to help offset the costs of older, sicker consumers.
To African-Americans, President Obama just gets it.Obama’s notably personal comments on Friday about the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, and on race in America, struck a chord. They vividly underlined the fact that, for the first time, the person in the Oval Office has lived an African-American experience.To black supporters, that is more important than Obama’s inability to narrow racial inequalities during his four and a half years in office,
Chris Matthews spoke for “all white people” today, and apologized for unspecified transgressions committed by them. “I’ll just tell you one thing,” the Hardball host told his two guests. “And I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially [the ones] who’ve tried to change the last 50 or 60 years. And a lot of them really tried to change, and I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.” He was addressing former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele and Val Nicholas, vice president and creative director at NBC News. The
WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.
Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.
The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda
President Obama is slated to deliver a speech later this month commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington in which Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Obama will deliver his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial — the same place where King spoke 50 years ago. The Let Freedom Ring ceremony will be held Aug. 28. "It’s obviously a historic, seminal event in the country. It’s part of my generation’s formative memory and it’s a good time for us to do some reflection,"
Speaking from Egypt Tuesday night, where they are hoping to broker a peaceful transition period between the country’s ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi to its next phase of nascent democracy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham warned that concessions on both sides needed to begin immediately or Egypt’s government would “fail.” “I didn’t know it was this bad,” Graham said. “These folks are just days, weeks away from all out bloodshed.” “There is only one way that we can bring about a peaceful Egypt, and that is a process of negotiation and reconciliation between major players,” McCain said.
In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July. "Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard
