Journalism – not?

I don’t think Chris Cillizza even gets the concept that he “quotes”

by Skip February 24, 2018

A “good guy with a gun” runs towards the sound of the fight – not cowering under cover when innocents are being killed.  If Scot Peterson is Cillizza’s idea of a “good guy”, he’s purely lying for ideological purposes.  A “good guy” ACTS! (H/T: Instapundit)

Windham School Board – That Transgender Bathroom policy really isn’t official? [Updated]

by Skip February 18, 2018

I’m getting a few folks emailing and calling about this, remember when the Windham School Board decided that it just HAD to have a Transgender bathroom policy in place (even, as I am told, that they don’t have any Transgender students in the district)?  Go ahead and reconcile those two things and I have a […]

“Non-partisan” – Seriously, Seacoast Online?? You actually want us to believe you?

by Skip January 23, 2018

Especially when the headline of the article is this? Seacoast progressives meet to set agenda PORTSMOUTH – More than a hundred Seacoast progressives turned out for an informational session on the upcoming legislative agenda and mid-term elections Thursday night at the Unitarian-Universalist South Church. Representatives from active, non-partisan campaigns in New Hampshire working to address […]

Data Point: Pew – US media bias ranks worst in the world

by Skip January 14, 2018

Americans on both sides of the political aisle believe the media does a poor job covering political issues fairly, according to a blockbuster new survey of media consumption in 38 nations. What’s more, the Pew Research Center’s study found that supporters of President Trump believe the media is doing a worse job covering politics than the supporters of […]

“Small arsenal”? Sounds to me like the guy was getting ready for a 3-gun match

by Skip January 1, 2018

I am by NO means a gun expert but this headline at Fox was guffaw bait: Man found with small arsenal on Houston Hyatt Regency’s top floor before New Year’s Eve celebration, police say. Don’t worry, Fox, other media outlets had similar headlines but being more of a conservative outlet, you had NO one there […]

Trump Derangement Syndrome – Part…..I can’t keep count any more

by Skip November 6, 2017

That’s apparently what CNN was doing when it published a story Monday under the headline, “Trump feeds fish, winds up pouring entire box of food into koi pond.” How is that newsworthy? Well, it’s newsworthy if Trump acted like a boor and pounded the precious koi with an overabundance of food. Such appears to be […]

Bias: Concord Monitor burying the lede on Trump’s action on Obamacare?

by Skip October 16, 2017

The headline over the weekend on a post about Obamacare: Trump’s blow to Obamacare jolts health consumers, politics President Donald Trump’s abrupt move to cut off federal payments to insurers jolted America’s health care and political worlds alike on Friday, threatening to boost premiums for millions, disrupt insurance markets and shove Republicans into a renewed […]

Superlative CNN journalists – they know a LOT

by Skip July 15, 2017

Or at least they think so. They sure thought they knew it all during Trump’s just concluded trip to France. You know, I’d love to call it “fake news” but it isn’t – this is plain getting it wrong at a news company that has $1.2 Billion in revenues and over 4,000 employees. You’d think […]

Data Point – the priorities of the mainstream Media

by Skip July 6, 2017

This graph isn’t just an illustration of news coverage, it is a visualization of absolute media malfeasance. This graph might as well represent the public’s declining trust of the mainstream media. That 4 minutes they spent on Obama’s war in Afghanistan? That’s about where the American people are right now in their level of faith […]

On the media – yes, I chuckled too

by Skip July 2, 2017

It is no secret that I hold most of the MSM in rather low regard as they make themselves to be objective, non-biased – and of course, smarter than the rest of us – especially those of us of the “fly over country” persuasion (if not geographically, then sensibilities-wise).  Oh, the faux outrage, the horror […]

Data Point – Trump is “gutting the Federal budget”?

by Skip April 1, 2017

From The Corner, a two-fer: biased journalists and the “cuts” (emphasis mine): Issie Lapowsky at Wired has an interesting piece on Ro Khanna’s proposal to radically expand the earned-income tax credit. Lapowsky writes that this will be difficult to do, because “the Trump administration is gutting the federal budget.” Setting aside the fact that tax […]

Pretty much the best summary of current Journalism I’ve seen

Bias in journalism much?

by Skip February 13, 2017

Normally I do like the Daily Mail, a UK newspaper, as it reports on a lot of items that the US MSM won’t – and if the MSM does, the Daily Mail generally has more facts and less political correctness than its American brethren.  This time, not so much. SHOT: The not-for-profit American Civil Liberties […]

It’s not like the MSM is hiding it well

SHOT:  Trump aide Bannon calls media the ‘opposition party’ CHASER:  Reuters Instructs Reporters To Cover Trump Like An Authoritarian Regime. It didn’t take two weeks for this to start – it took just one day as they started to portray the Womens March as a Freedom event (instead of the angry Leftist harridan whine-together that […]

The Left isn’t getting that Trump just keeps on trolling them…

by Skip November 30, 2016

And a real life example with uber-Left (and Hillary rump-swab) “journalist”Andrea Mitchell: On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell’s exchange with former Defense Secretary William Cohen turned surprisingly contentious when the Clinton cabinet official started lecturing the press on its obsession with every tweet from President-elect Donald Trump: “I think we have to […]

Press Standards – depend on the who and what

by Skip November 27, 2016

This perfectly shows the “Who”standard – one standard for a Progressive and a “not” Progressive.  Guess who gets the preferential treatment, the softball questions, and who gets the grinding “faux outrage” ones (and gender doesn’t count – until they decide that it does (re: all that rubbish talk about glass ceilings)). The What? That’s “tradition” […]

Blogline of the Day – whereby “you’re fired” isn’t “put yer stuff in the cardboard box”

by Skip October 23, 2016

These people need to be fired. Out of a cannon. Chan over at WeekendPundit comes up with that in describing the miserable state of American journalism not reporting on the latest development of that Socialist Wonderland called Venezuela – it just became a dictatorship.  The end is nigh there but you think that our Leftist […]

The collusion has made the MSM simply an organization of the Democrat Party

by Skip October 15, 2016

I’m not the only one that is noticing that the MSM has dropped all pretense of being the “who, what, where, why, and how” – objectivity.  Oh sure, I’ve pointed this and them out for years but this election season, it is beyond “over the top”: The Democrats’ and mainstream media’s blizzard of sexual accusations […]

Notable Quote – Bob Higgs

by Skip October 10, 2016

Q: What is the chief political function of the news media in the USA? A: To divert the public’s attention from what is important to what is trivial and thereby to ensure that fundamentals receive little or no discussion and hence play no role in political competition. -Bob Higgs, (H/T: Cafe Hayek) From personal experience, […]

Data Point – Trust in Journalism down again; CNN shows why

by Skip September 14, 2016

Such a headline: Fueled by Republicans, Americans’ trust in media hits all-time low Hmmm, ya think maybe they just bring this upon themselves?  I’ve been putting up the Gallup graphs for a long time so I’m not surprised: But CNN, like many Lefty media outlets, just can’t seem to understand that when you decide to […]

Media bias – it doesn’t matter what he says

by Skip August 13, 2016

(Image H/T: Lucianne) And the mask is coming off: “CNN’S CUOMO COMES RIGHT OUT AND ADMITS IT: ‘We couldn’t help Hillary any more than we have, she’s got just a free ride so far from the media, we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign, so it had better happen.” (H/T: Instapundit) And must I remind you, […]

Blogline of the day – Media bias

by Skip August 12, 2016

GOP candidate could spend the next three months giving practical policy speeches and the media would still brand him a bigot. And it doesn’t matter who the candidate is, either.  They earn the moniker of “Democrats with bylines” every single day (twice often during Presidential campaigns). (H/T: Instapundit)

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 […]
