Regarding Keith Olbermann’s War With Gore’s Current TV

March 31, 2012
By

Link via Memeorandum and Media Decoder. The Keith Olberamnn versus Al Gore's Current-TV snit fest appears to be going just as one might expect given the players involved. While it's generating much buzz across the Internet, a funny thought occured to me.

Current TV said Friday afternoon that it had terminated the...

The Beltway Little Boys Club

March 31, 2012
By

Regardless of one's politics, when something like this happens, it's a news story, especially when there's evidence allowing one to compare both versions. There has been a lot of growth in Internet-based news media, especially in Washington, over the last several years. Many of these would be journalists are...

And Here’s Where I Pointed At The Netroots Nation And Laughed

March 30, 2012

Thank God Keith Olbermann has his next primo gig all lined up! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Olbermann was supposed to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Netroots Nation event. It’s unclear what happens to that appearance now.

Olbermann now has the distinction of being fired from almost every major...

Does New Sanford PD Video Show Zimmerman With Broken Nose?

March 29, 2012
By

The Sanford police department has released an extended video of George Zimmerman on the night of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. It appears as though his nose may have been bandaged both immediately upon Zimmerman exiting the police cruiser and again at 4:30 in when Zimmerman walks under the...

Enhanced Image Proves ABC Blew It On Zimmerman Video

March 29, 2012
By

I've already posted on ABC's reckless reporting as regards a so called news scoop based on police video. ABC pushed their reckless story by claiming police video showed no blood or bruises on...

Shame On ABC For Irresponsible Hyping Of Zimmerman Video

March 29, 2012
By

I take ABC to task at Big Journalism for its handling of a non-story to incite and attract attention to itself for what amounts to nothing. I suppose it wasn't really raining that night, as Zimmerman's T-shirt appears to be dry, too.

ABC is hyping a grainy police surveillance video in an...

Florida Couple Fled Home, Hires Attorney After Spike Lee Tweeted Address

March 28, 2012
By

The first thing the couple is demanding is an apology. Spike Lee has over 200,000 Twitter followers who could have been erroneously alerted to their home address after Spike Lee mounted the wrong No Justice, No Tweets high horse. He thought he was Tweeting George Zimmerman's home address, which is...

Obama Is Now Leading A Lynch Mob After Zimmerman

March 26, 2012

The official Obama team is now pushing the Obama hoodie.

Here is only one example of the sentiment Barack Obama is stirring up by promoting hoodies. Along with that, an Internet search for George Zimmer's home phone...

Lefty Blogger TBogg Loses It: “Just say the n*gger had it coming”

March 25, 2012
By

via an email. Wow, talk about unhinged. So, this is what passes for lefty blog comment debate? I never read them, someone sent me the link. It seems one reader/commenter didn't agree with TBogg, evidently also the one guy in the universe who can hear a 911 call clearly, despite...

Did The AP Tag Alleged Iraqi Hate Crime To Dick Cheney?

March 25, 2012
By

This is strange, though I can't rule out some plausible and innocent explanation for it. But I've never observed it via Memeorandum before. The programming that drives Memeorandum always seems to pick up the author of a news report.

EL CAJON, Calif. — A woman from Iraq who was found beaten...

Howard Kurtz and the media’s “astonishing slowness” on Trayvon Martin

March 25, 2012
By

Once again the people sitting in their living rooms in their pajamas are way ahead of the lamestream media, who appear to prefer peddling their tired racist narratives to getting the facts, ma'am, just the facts.

The Irony Of Obama: He May Have Freed Whites, More Than Blacks

March 25, 2012
By

There is an interesting irony playing out underneath this whole Martin, Zimmerman tragedy the media – and more importantly, Obama – now seems intent on making into a national event.

In the past when race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton started their usual schtick over some alleged racial issue, they and the...

Charles Johnson’s Ignorance Over Trayvon Photo Flap Tops Memeorandum

March 25, 2012
By

lgf blogger Charles Johnson has finally made it fully into the arms of the left with his post attacking me, which gives him enough links and attention to result in this. What's sad is how willing Johnson has been to throw away everything he seemed to once understand about the...

Update: Trayvon “Slimm” Martin’s Facebook Page

March 25, 2012
By

Update: I've updated with a second message below I had left out. It appears an individual asked Trayvon who he fought with on November 26. There was no response and, again, that doesn't demonstrate a history of fighting. Teachers have claimed any behavior issues were not of a violent nature.

Via email,...

Update: Is This The Same Trayvon Martin?

March 24, 2012
By

Update: This does not appear to be the same Trayvon Martin.

I came across this Facebook account in the name of Trayvon Martin. I do not know if it is the same Martin who was recently killed in Florida. The banner photo matches, which proves nothing fwiw.

This is one of the few...

AP Running Photoshopped Image Of Trayvon Martin

March 24, 2012
By

Just saw this new AP report via the Daily Mail that has a new witness coming forward in the Florida shooting of Trayvon Martin. It's the image of Martin in a Hoodie, approximately 7 images down at previous link. I just published a post dealing with the photoshopped image of Martin and...

As Media Reports Conflict, Why Was Trayvon Martin Photo Altered?

March 24, 2012
By

Among a few interesting items uncovered in trying to examine the facts behind the shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin without drawing any conclusions, was that a widely viewed photograph of Martin appears to have been altered, somewhat.

Here is what appears to be the original via the Miami Herald.

The one below has...

Along with hosting a popular talk radio show and writing the occasional New York Times best seller, former Reagan appointee Mark Levin is President of the Landmark Legal Foundation. Fans and friends are likely aware of it's work on behalf of Conservatism in America.

Santorum in Gettysburg: A new birth of freedom?

March 20, 2012
By

Rick Santorum talked to supporters at a rally (above) in Moline, Illinois yesterday on the eve of Tuesday's primary, which he's projected to lose to Mitt Romney. Tonight Santorum is in the "next must-win state, Pennsylvantia," where he gave "his own Gettysburg address," following Romney's victory speech, which picked up on...

Pointing At Conor Friedersdorf And Laughing At Him

March 20, 2012
By

There's what I can only guess is supposed to be a review of Ameritopia by Conor (with one N) Friedersdorf. I went back to look at it and had to put it in a Word doc, just so I could do a word count. He scribbled over 3,300 words!...
