The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

‘Talent Search’ at MSNBC

Two afternoon shows on MSNBC — Joy Reid at 1 p.m. ET and Ronan Farrow at 2 p.m. — were cancelled yesterday, and it looks like Chris Hayes will be the network’s next “star” to get the ax: In the relatively near term, two well-placed sources predicted to The Daily Beast, Chris Hayes will be […]

MSNBC: How Long Until Phil Griffin Offers Keith Olbermann Fellatio?

As much as we hated the King of Bombastic Liberal Self-Righteousness, it cannot be denied that MSNBC’s rating have spiraled downward since the network let Keith Olbermann walk out in 2011. Hate him as much as you want — and I certainly do hate him — Olbermann was a franchise personality, and none of MSNBC’s […]

Israel/Gaza Ceasefire Collapses, Along With Joe Scarborough’s Credibility

The 72-hour ceasefire fell short by about 70 hours: A 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire agreed upon by Israel and Hamas collapsed shortly after it took effect Friday morning. Mortar shells fired from within the Gaza Strip landed near a border-regioning town some two hours after the truce deal brokered by the United States and the EU […]

Is MSNBC Too Pro-Israel?

Rula Jebreal (@RulaJebreal) is part of the unhinged anti-Israel fringe on the Left — I call them “the Sirhan Sirhan wing of the Democrat Party” — that has finally spilled over into public view on MSNBC: An MSNBC contributor used her appearance on the cable news channel Monday to sharply criticize its coverage of the […]

The MSNBC Agenda

This morning I woke up early and switched the TV onto MSNBC — I Watch MSNBC So You Don’t Have To™ — where the Morning Joe crew then proceeded to spend 10 minutes talking about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. You probably missed the minor bit of local news that was the “hook” for this […]

‘Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But George Will’s Column Raped Me’

Peter Paul Rubens, Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus (1618) “Feminism is, among other things, a totalitarian attempt to tell us what to think by controlling what we are allowed to say.” — Robert Stacy McCain, May 4 Who is turning rape into a joke? Feminists, by their counterfactual insistence that American university campuses are […]

MSNBC’s War on Women: Why Has Network Abandoned Wendy Davis?

Simple answer: Because she’s an embarrassing loser! The liberal journalists at MSNBC have been quite enamored with Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, constantly promoting her Democratic campaign. Yet, a new poll showing her trailing by 14 points has gone unmentioned on the network. Even more interesting, Republican candidate Greg Abbott is beating Davis even among women, 49-41. The […]

MSNBC and Obama Tanking Together

Two headlines: MSNBC is in serious trouble — Politico Poll: Obama’s disapproval rating hits a new high — Washington Post Hating Republicans is a poor substitute for sound policy, and it’s also not an adequate rationale for a news organization: In a world where liberals wanted to be outraged by George Bush every night, or […]
