This PC speech police nonsense is particularly sad to see on the Right. One can’t hypocritically claim the 2nd...

Via the Daily Caller: via ‘Shameless whores': Erick Erickson explodes over media’s indifference to Obama’s overreach | The Daily Caller.

Dylan Byers and Brad Dayspring: Two Sides Of the Same Counterfeit Coin

January 9, 2014
By

Just as we can scratch competent communications director from Brad Dayspring’s resume, Politico’s Dylan Byers makes it clear thinking, let alone reporting, is not his forte with this bit of tripe. I’m wondering what exactly was the point of it –  a ploy for traffic, perhaps? Byers’ item only creates more...

The main focus of this item by house whipping boy young Conor (with one N) Friedersdorf is that Roger Ailes pulled barking dog Billbo O’Reilly’s chain after he yipped at Rush Limbaugh’s heels and Billbo did what a good poodle does, he sat down and shut up. I’ll leave...

By

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said that it was too early to call for a special counsel to look into the Justice Department’s monitoring of journalists.

Instead, Durbin said he backed a “media shield law,” but was not sure if such a law would protect...

May 22, 2013

No, really? But some of the other cases are even worse. I mean, all cute little Emma Way here did was knock down someone on a bike. She didn’t behead him, or anything.

The criminal mind can be cunningly brilliant—or stunningly foolish. You can safely put Emma Way of the U.K. into...

Politico’s Ken Vogel gets the “Get Rush Limbaugh” memo

May 9, 2013
By

Just noticed an interesting Tweet from Politico’s Ken Vogel. It’s pretty clear that it’s open season on Rush Limbaugh right now, despite his solid position. It’s also clear that this relative pissant Ken Vogel got the memo and is doing his pathetic duty as a water carrier for today’s Left. Tell me...

May 7, 2013

Via Facebook. Funny for all the media criticism of Palin, they forever fail to mention the fact that she uses new media to go around their filter and mostly always has – even when still with Fox.

If a liberal Democrat did that, it’d be brilliant and … news!! More at...
