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.

Wow...after 5 years of Rip Van Winkle somnolence, the entire MSM on one day awakes and rediscovers its inner investigative journalist. 2-hour press conference...with non-stop questions, not pre-scripted. 24x7 coverage on all channels.

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.

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

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. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

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. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. 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

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
