Scarborough To Republicans:
'Stop Blaming The Media'

Newsbusters, by Mark Finkelstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/8/2012 8:34:17 AM

Should Republicans unilaterally disarm in the media-bias wars? Joe Scarborough seems to think so. Arguing that it distracts Republicans from performing the political blocking-and-tackling needed to win elections, Scarborough has called on Republicans to "stop blaming the media." Saying "let's makes this personal," Scarborough cited as an example of the supposed distractions to which he was referring the controversy over the tape Morning Joe aired in September from a Romney campaign stop. Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan."

Joe has no clue about what Republicans should do. Does he still call himself one?

Joe thinks he is relevant. The only people who watch his show are leftists and a few RHINOS. His show is the excuse the left uses to prove they are open minded and see both sides. Just remember he works for MSNBC.

The media bias war may be the single most important battle Republicans MUST fight. Obama would never have won if the media had done its job. The cover up of the true scope of the Hurricane Sandy tragedy is criminal. Most of the nation believes that other than a few downed trees and some watyer in the subways Sandy was no big deal. Its not in the news so the response must have been a resounding success. Thanks to Obama of course.

The reality is far different, and with 500,000 still without power and a nasty bitter cold snowy noreaster hitting yesterday and today the misery of millions is compounded.

NY City is a disaster, and the media ignore it so the Won can look "presidential". Disgraceful.

The reality is the Republicans have a huge problem with the press. The supposed demographic shift can be attributed in part to this propoganda machine, control what the masses are allowed to know and you can control how they think.

We must find some way to destry the MSM, not balance out, destroy. They are the single most dangerous enemy a free America has today.

Joe, you are so, so wrong. Your media consistently and purposefully doesn't tell the "whole story" and scraps reports which do not favor 'your/their' candidate. That is dishonest and unfair to the American people. The truth is the truth is the truth. We Americans deserve it - whether you think so or not.

And, Joe, - once again - we hardly knew ye! What the hell happened anyway?? You and Chrissie would be good together on your own show and could make beautiful music together. I won't be watching, but 'go for it'.

I'm sorry but the second Media stopped reporting the news and began telling "the narrative", was when they stopped being neutral. The media is the first big fat target to be destroyed before the next election in 2014 so a Crowley doesn't get to moderate another debate. Preferably, she should end up in a homeless shelter, jobless.

Looking back we can all see that the media has always been biased toward the left. What Republicans need to do is start effectively fighting back which will mean not accepting their horribly biased questions. Wouldn't it have been fun if Palin had asked Charlie Gipson "Why the frowny face?" or "Are you feeling okay?" when he was sneering down his nose at her? Almost everyone watching would have cheered - we all like to see a snot taken down a peg. What if when Candy Crowley jumped in to save 0bama, Romney had quipped that maybe she would like to join 0bama at the podium and an audience member could take her moderator's seat? You can't fight the evil in the world if you're unwilling to fight the likes of Charlie and Candy.

I have never that show, whatever it is. I don't watch any of the popular media because it plays to a low common denominator. The internet is easy to filter for maximum content. Lucianne is one of my favorites because of this. But the popular media is the enemy of liberty. It is a strong force in the face of freedom. It is extremely biased and corrupt. But it doesn't share all the blame.
If Romney really did get less votes than Mcain't then we really deserve zipp0.

He is partially correct. First up the campaign managers and speechwriters, then the candidates themselves and finally a voting population that appears to have a population of fools and parasites that overwhelm informed voters. Of course the media and by that I mean anyone in a position to disperse information or entertainment which is the most appealing information, brainwashes dim viewers into sheeple. Orwell predicted it, we are living it.

I watch Morning Joe once in a while when I want to jump start my blood pressure for the day. Scarborough is so irrelevant and Mika is a mess. She makes so many faces I think she is doing facial exercises to keep her skin taut. Both of them are shills for the DNC and they can say what they want - but the media has become the Fifth Estate. They are subversive and I consider them enemies of America. I don't trust them one iota and neither should you.

U.S. remains a wild card in

Washington Post, by Griff Witte    Original Article

LONDON— With support growing for independence just months before Scots decide whether to break up with Britain, outsiders are weighing in with impassioned calls to keep the three-century-old union together. British officials from across the political spectrum, European Union leaders, corporate executives and retired military commanders have made their cases. Even David Bowie registered a plea for Scotland to “stay with us.” But there has been conspicuous silence from one major player with a lot to lose if Scotland secedes: the United States. A vote for independence would dismember Washington’s closest and most important ally, leaving behind a not-so-great Britain at

WEST SHOKAN, N.Y.— IF my mother had been aware enough to know what we were spending on her care, she would have been aghast. She’d always been frugal. I once noticed the remains of the Easter ham in the refrigerator two months later. “Don’t you think it’s time to throw that out?” I asked. “Ham doesn’t go bad,” she explained. She could make a piece of tinfoil last clear into the next decade. She once made an old corduroy jumper of mine into a seat cover for the rocking chair — perfectly good material, not to be wasted.

Guests included Lauren Santo Domingo and husband Andrés, Moda Operandi’s Hayley Bloomingdale, Vogue’s James Reed Hague, and Jesse and Stephanie Newhouse, among others.

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won a battle over the federal government´s round up of his cattle on public land after a week-long standoff with agents. The Bureau of Land Management announced today that it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia gathered in Nevada. Shortly after the deal was agreed, about 100 armed protesters, some on horse back, headed to a corral to demand the BLM also hands back cattle it had already taken. Armed members of the BLM and the Bundy family were also reported to be involved in tense talks

Several letters to the editor published in The Washington Post on Saturday strongly criticized the Matt Schudel obituary of Marine Gen. Carl Mundy from April 6. Favorable obituaries are more likely for left-wing radicals like "visionary scientist" Barry Commoner, to recall Schudel´s recent work. It began by noting the general offended liberals (without using the L-word): “Carl E.

And in his first appearance at the Masters, the 20-year-old Texan looks like he´s been playing here most of his life. Spieth joined the mix at the Masters on Friday with an 8-foot eagle putt on the par-5 15th, and a shot that settled within tap-in range for birdie on the 18th hole. That gave him a 2-under 70 and left him only four shots behind going into the weekend. Is

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record
