TV gives ´Bridgegate´ 17 times
more coverage in one day
than IRS scandal in 6 months

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 1/10/2014 6:16:16 AM

The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s traffic headache dubbed “Bridgegate,” have devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to the affair in just the last 24 hours. By comparison, that´s 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama´s IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center. “While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee,” said the conservative media watchdog.

Not in his corner, but we all should know the media will play Whack A Mole with ANY republican who dares raise their head and act like they may be a candidate for president. Democrats should not be free to breathe our air.

And we know why don´t we. Christie looks like too good a candidate against their favorite Hillary. He would eat her alive and the MSM can´t have that. They have to do him in for her so she will have an easier time. I thought he did a great job and I believed him.

The Lamestreams are just wasting powder taking out Donut Boy. He was never contendah as most conservatives viewed him as another RINO. He would have lost to Shrillary by a larger margin than Romney´s loss to Barry. However it is useful to view the glaring hypocrisy.

I find it a little strange the MSM is taking out their fav.GOP candidate for 2016.What happens now if a real conservative gets the nod.

Christie got a lot of my respect yesterday,standing up there for an hour and a half taking the media´s badgering. Obama would have smeared his spinners all over the airwaes to knock something down.I hope Christie comes out of this being not guilty.

Part of the problem right now is cynicism about the whole political world.We´re so used to seeing Obama lie day after day,it´s rubbing off on all politicians,whether they´re guilty or innocent.

I´m in Christie´s corner until I see hardcore proof he was behind this.It even sounds to me like it could have been a prank that got out of hand.

Christie making some kind of joke about the traffic jam back in Dec,tells me he knew nothing about it.

Everybody losing health coverage right now is arguably a victim of Obama "punishing the enemies".The proof of this is not a single minority complaining about losing or the costs of healthcare.

There´s no question, because it´s obvious, the MSM protects the Left while vilifying the Right.

However, either Christe ordered the closing of the Bridge or his ´close friends´ purposefully did him in. I think the Governor was behind the closing of the bridge, and his close friends were careless: end of story.

I did not see any reciprocal media scrutiny on the WH from the spite memorial/park closings during the so-called shutdown, either. Unlike Christie, no press conference grilling on Barry over the outrage, either.

Any distraction away from Barry will do.

Grossly overweight Chris, has the prosecutorial bones, plus the open, easy listening personality rarely found in a public, elected figure. He´s entertaining, fact filled and fascinating. He seems to have managed New Jersey´s mis managed economy in a uniquely responsible way.

So, what´s missing ? Why does this great seeming guy come off like just another likable and accomplished Mitt Romney RINO (besides his frightening hugging of Oama) ?

If only Chris would (1) speak up for freedom, (2) go after Benghazi, illegal aliens, IRS, NSA, gun control, whichever of these that really annoys him and threatens his personal beliefs.

Chris need only watch about an hour of any of Ron Paul´s many YouTubes, a virtual college course on freedom, read one book by Murray Rothbard, and gather together ten or more articles by Tom Sowell.

In one weekend, reviewing these three great intellectuals on the real world of freedom, Chris Christie
could perfect his current RINO cloudiness, and truly help the cause of a free America, which he is currently wasting ! Naturally, knowing his great energy, Chris could continue to learn more about freedom and discover Hayek, Von Mises, Ayn Rand, Hazlitt, Tom Paine, maybe even a few of our Founding Fathers.

The media are oblivious to this kind of criticsm. It has been exposed and now they just do it openly and sometimes gleefully. The next Republican candidate needs to take some lessons from Newt. He is very very good at dealing with the smarmy liberals. It can be done.

Ah, well ... you Christie fans out there can take comfort in the fact that this has happened long before the campaign season really gets underway. By that time, it will be ancient history, and the Great American Public will be agitated by something else, like Grandma being denied any medical care by Obama´s Death Panel, maybe?

It seems to me that the only people with their petticoats in a twist about this are the editors of the NYT, the WAPO, the heads of the "news" departments of NBC, CBS and ABC, plus the six million or so screaming Lefties who inhabit the greater New York area.

I doubt if the rest of the country really gives a flip.

That´s because Republicans have feckless leaders like Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, and McConnell. No message, bad ideas, no guts. Their only value is to the Democrats.

A cynic would say that this is CC repaying Fauxbama for something or other by taking Obamacare off of the front page for a couple days. We better be careful. After Bridgegate subsides we may find that Kerry and his enabler in chief have given away the entire world to Russia and Iran while the LSM fiddled.

This is purely because the "news" media cabal sees Christie as the greatest threat to keeping the heir apparent (Hildabeast) from succeeding Da One. So he must be destroyed. Pure and simple.

So the MSM uses Christie to get Zero re-elected lauding Christie´s bi-partisan credentials as the fat man embraced candidate Zero days before the election. He was the media´s idol and savior. That was then, Chris, and this is now. "Thanks for helping elect Zero but we gotta destroy you as we kick-off PIAPS presidential campaign."

Will Rinos ever learn that the press are scum and are not Republicans´ friends? I´m afraid, never.

Get this right: Christie is just another surviving political heavy (pardon the pun- not intended). He has survived by playing both sides of the fence. The whole nation is lefty leaning and becoming more-so every single day. So, politicians who want to make it must be lefty, too.

It´s not the RINOs. There is really no such thing as a true conservative these days- such a critter is extinct in the political world we live in now.

This nation is changing into the dregs of what is left behind when a great nation dies.

What is needed, I am so sad to say, is a really, really good war. I thought 9/11 would be it. But, GW botched that all to Hades. It is now in the drain.

We had our last chance at pulling this together. Liberals could have been run out of town, quite easily then. But, not now.

So, do as I do; accept reality, make the most of what we have left and pray.

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night. They almost always did.” About three weeks ago, at 2:45 a.m., the tribal police were called to the reservation home of an Indian woman who was allegedly

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country.

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park.

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads.

Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue.

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
