The Other McCain

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

Does The ‘NBC Editor’ Really Exist?

by Smitty Daily- and Instapudit are on about Breitbart’s post concerning the fired NBC editor. Back at Breitbart: The questions are only just beginning on Editgate. The release of the news of the firing just before the holiday weekend smacks of a cover-up; more than that, we know that the edit itself was not restricted […]

Althouse on the Cain Train?

“I thought David Gregory really lost his cool early on, as he was questioning Cain about 9-9-9. If you watch the video, you can see he’s agitated and grimacing in a way that really lacks the usual polished journalist quality.” – Ann Althouse, “Herman Cain Nailed Meet the Press” This is an unexpected but really […]

Remember When David Gregory Raked Obama Over the Coals on ‘Meet the Press’?

Yeah. Me neither. When Democrats go on Meet the Press, it’s like Justin Bieber sitting down for a hard-hitting interview with Tiger Beat. (“Do you like puppies?”) When conservatives go on Meet the Press, it’s like Hans Frank on trial at Nuremberg, except without benefit of a defense lawyer. David Gregory just got through interrogating […]

VIDEO: Brian Williams Announces NBC Poll Showing Herman Cain Leading

Wanted to post this one as a record for history: Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Comment? I got no comment. I’m just thinking back to CPAC, when I was introducing my friends in the hotel lobby bar to “the next president of the United States.” And they all […]

VIDEO: Wasserman-Schultz Discusses Weiner Scandal on ‘Meet the Press’

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy From the NBC transcript: MR. GREGORY: Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, let me start with you. REP. SCHULTZ: Sure. MR. GREGORY: What, what led to the change? Why now call for him to resign? REP. SCHULTZ: Well, I think that since this story broke […]

David Gregory, Putz

“Just take my word for it, I’m David Gregory, and I’m paid to make up lies for the White House on television.”

Chris Matthews Goes Off on GOP ‘Hate’; Mark Levin Goes Off on NBC News

Watching MSNBC is fun from an anthropological perspective. This is the kind of stuff that liberals believe. This is how their minds work. Here is Chris Matthews accusing Republicans and the Tea Party of hate: What is so bizarre about that is that this wasn’t some off-the-cuff  gaffe. It was an actual scripted segment, during which Matthews used […]

The New N-Word: ‘Food Stamps’

According to David Gregory of NBC News, it is “coded racially-tinged language” to mention the increased use of food stamps under President Obama’s economic agenda: “You want to be a country that creates food stamps, in which case frankly Obama’s is an enormous success. The most successful food stamp president in American history. Or do […]

Has Barrett Brown Scammed NBC News?

In-freaking-credible! Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Barrett Brown is either, as Michael Isikoff reports, “an underground commander in a new kind of warfare” — a member of a criminal conspiracy who should be under arrest — or else he’s one of the most successful hoaxers in recent memory. […]

Comcast ‘Presumptuous and Arrogant’

No, it’s not somebody complaining about their cable bill. It’s federal regulators talking about the NBC takeover: Comcast is still in negotiations with the government over its proposed takeover of NBC Universal, but that did not stop the cable company from announcing a new management slate for the entertainment giant last week. That announcement displeased […]

Rachel Maddow and the Politics of Stupid

Why hasn’t the American public completely repudiated the policies of the Obama administration? At a time when the unemployment rate has been hovering near 10 percent for nearly a year, Obama’s job approval numbers are very near dead even, and Republicans are just barely leading on the generic ballot. Why isn’t the administration’s abject failure on economic issues more […]

The Propaganda of Omission

“When the liberal radio network Air America debuted on March 31, 2004, NBC trumpeted it as the ‘counterweight’ to the ‘right-wing bent’ of talk radio. Katie Couric enthused that Al Franken and his colleagues hoped ‘to break into what has been a conservative lock on the radio.’ However, when the beleaguered Air America announced bankruptcy […]
