Journalism – not?

Well, Ed Pierce (Laconia Citizen editor) helps prove where the MSM stands politically

by Skip June 23, 2016

What a snob – typical Leftist MSMer who believes that HE has free speech but no one else does?  Once again, we see little tolerance in the news bureau (who 90-95% vote and give campaign donations strictly to Democrats) and reinforcement that the MSM is slanted in both its outlook and actions. “Mr.” Pierce of […]

Once again, we see the MSM getting it wrong

by Skip June 14, 2016

All we’ve heard from the MSM (and most of them wouldn’t know which end to point down range) is AR-15! AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15!AR-15! Ad nauseum.    They’re all wrong.   From Bearing Arms: The rifle used by the Islamist terrorist in Orlando was not an AR-15.

Summary – Not one Republican among the 70 odd Journalists  See lower right, the “0%” .After Obama, and if a Republican gains the Oval Office, the softballs will turn into lead slugs.

Jorge Mesa-Tejada vs Hampstead big spenders (aka “IT’S FOR THE CHILDREN!”) – Part 1

by Skip January 16, 2016

Alinsky’s Rules for radicals: “RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Of all the stupidest reasons to “support” a $4.59 10 year million school bond issue, bringing in the notion that we have to build an expensive new building so a sniper can’t pick off kids as they walk the 20 […]

Ted Cruz – “Invasion”

by Skip January 5, 2016

Nice to see Ted Cruz go after the gatekeepers of the Progressive Agenda – Democrat stalwarts all – lawyers and journalists.  After all, they aren’t impacted by the open borders movement, are they? (H/T: Washington Examiner)

John Dickerson, Democrat Debate moderator tonite, just have them let you sit on their laps

by Skip November 14, 2015

and let them pull your strings.  This will not be a debate as this post from Big Journalism shows.  The whole post after the jump but here’s the jist of it (emphasis mine): COORDINATION: CBS DEBATE MODERATOR DICKERSON MEETS WITH DEMS BEFORE DEBATE …The coordination between the DC Media and Democrats is now out in […]

WMUR CloseUP: Did we catch Josh McElven in a lie?

by Skip November 2, 2015

This week’s CLOSEUP had a couple of tidbits in it that I just went “really”?  For instance, in his first interview, with Hillary Clinton, he had the chance to put her under the journalistic microscope with a follow up question.  No, not a CNBC type gotcha type – but just good journalism.  Result?

And you wonder why the MSM always is finding fault with USA?

by Skip September 17, 2015

This image from Big Government.  I almost don’t have to say a word, do I? Just a little handful standing to show respect.  And make no mistake, it is totally about respect. Or the lack thereof.  I can understand if technical crews are working during it – I’ve had to adjust and calibrate stuff when […]

Notable Quote – Howie Carr

by Skip September 11, 2015

The mainstream media goes crazy about Trump’s latest remark, tasteless as it was, and most of the voters immediately remember the absolute lack of outrage whenever a Democrat says something as bad, or worse. – Howie Carr (reporter, syndicated columnist, author, and Radio Hall of Fame talk show host).   Dunno if “most of the […]

Speaking of Terry Bean – actually, the media (including NH) still isn’t reporting the story at all

by Skip November 25, 2014

Again, kudos to Steve for breaking the Terry Bean story here (and here) in NH (DNC Committeeman-bigwhig / Obama donor / NHDP Chair Ray Buckley) being rrested on charges of sodomy on a minor-aged boy and the NH Democrat Party stonewall silence – so as NOT to disavow Raybo’s friend?  Or avoiding the mud of this homosexual rape (I leave […]

“Who will the elite media vote for”, James Pindell?

by Skip November 2, 2014

James Pindell – in the footsteps of George Stephanopolous and Candy Crowly, you put yourself squarely as “Poster Boy” for this ad this cycle: Don’t worry James, as I have pointed out before, your WMUR compadres have blazed that trail for you. (H/T: Campaign Spot)

Oof – It’s gotta be bad when even MSNBC criticizes you, James Pindell!

by Skip October 31, 2014

Yeah, James Pindell certainly made himself the story of the US Senate debate – and it went national – when he decided he knew NH’s geography better than Brown (e.g., Sullivan County).  But really, when the most Leftward leaning cable networks, MSNBC, goes after you with one of the most Leftward leaning “journalists”,  National Public Radio’s […]

Political Scoop: him questions, me answers

Haven’t done this for a while but decided to use the flyswatter one more time before putting it away for the season on a couple of the questions just laid out there in the breeze: Anyone else notice that the Steve Vaillancourt comments on Kuster got more play in national media than it did in […]

MSM Journalism – on the Left, always advocating for the Left & Big Govt

by Skip September 12, 2014

I have been commenting about this kind of stuff for years now: journalists that aren’t.  Members of the MainStream Media (MSM) that have “progressed” past the traditional “who, what, when, why, and how”, past the “afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted” to “make the world a better place”. The first is reporting the news […]

So much for the vaunted Fourth Estate, eh?

by Skip June 1, 2014

Certainly at the national level, especially in Washington, DC, we see journalists too concerned with access to the powerful instead of fulfilling the reason why they have a mention in the First Amendment – a free press – which was to enable them to ride herd on government outside of government itself: “Here in the […]

Scott was right – you’re a racist if you think about Obama in a certain way

by Skip February 28, 2014

Scott was right:  FULL of facists! I got bad news.  I agree with many on the left.  Our country is infested with vile racists.  They’re everywhere: in our media, in our government, in our schools, in our stores and they remain contaminating a major political party as they have historically done for well over a […]

Darwin Award – when Journalistic stupidity runs into uncaring Reality

by Skip December 26, 2013

It is has been a LONG time since I saw something worth posting from the Darwin Awards (it went semi-dormant and was on a bookmark list I haven’t used for a while) – a site proclaiming and reveling in how people can find so many ways to eliminate their genes from further participation in our […]

Every NH Progressive is a foot soldier in NH State Rep Petey Sullivan’s “Tolerance & Diversity” Army

by Skip December 3, 2013

Those NH Progressives – such a tolerant bunch – they love EVERYONE.  Nice to see that Peter Sullivan has marshalled them all behind him in the Democrat War On Women and Minorities and showing that they hate religion – see this Facebook entry by Sullivan? “Yeah, I said it, and I stand by it.
