This isn’t “Trump’s Hurricane” – He Inherited it.

by Steve MacDonald September 17, 2018

The media is all aflutter with the implication that Mr. Trump and his destructive exit from the Paris Climate agreement is responsible for Hurricane Florence. If not the hurricane itself then it’s intensity. If not the intensity then the risk to human life and (what will undoubtedly be reported as) record high property damage. There’s only […]

Why Haven’t We Written About the Passing of John McCain?

by Steve MacDonald September 3, 2018

Dan Williams aka; Hunter Dan, IM’d me on Facebook. “Why in the hell haven’t you guys posted even ONE story about the passing of the great American hero, John McCain?!?!?!” (Punctation in original.) Whatever we may think John McCain was as a younger man he became something else later in life. To that point, I asked myself, would he […]

“Plastic Guns” – The 1980’s Want Their Gun-Grabber Hysteria Back

by Steve MacDonald August 12, 2018

Have you heard about the “undetectable plastic gun”? The gun control lobbies call it is “tailor-made for terrorism.” The Washington Post reports that a state sponsor of terrorism is already attempting to obtain these guns. A Postcolumnist warns that the police “vehemently oppose the introduction of plastic guns into our armed society.” Newsweek predicts the NRA will face a member […]

Mueller Still has Nothing And Mueller is the Proof of That.

by Steve MacDonald July 30, 2018

Robert Mueller’s mandate as special prosecutor is to investigate and prosecute legitimate cases of “collusion” between ‘Russians’ and the Trump Campaign. He has been at it for a few years now and despite the occasional media-friendly announcements of charges or indictments ‘Mueller’ still has nothing. How do we know this?

Gallup Poll: Inaccuracy, Misinformation, and Bias in Media News Coverage

by Steve MacDonald June 23, 2018

Gallup’s latest opinion poll adds another nail to the Media coffin.  A growing majority believe it is biased. Overall, U.S. adults estimate that 62% of the news they read in newspapers, see on television or hear on the radio is biased. They think the news media mostly provide accurate information, but still estimate that 44% of what […]

As Grok Prepares To Take it to the Next Level It’s Time to See Where We Rank With Alexa

by Steve MacDonald June 18, 2018

Before we were hacked in April GraniteGrok climbed up the Alexa Rankings (for Online news or media sites in New Hampshire) to do battle with the top 5. The redirect did some damage to that, and we almost dropped out of the top ten. That was not great, and we’ve written about the redirects that plagued readers, but […]

Erick Erickson: The Media’s Double Standards

by Steve MacDonald June 1, 2018

I had some thoughts on this yesterday but there’s room for more. No television network has ever cancelled the number one network television show in America over a star’s behavior until this happened. Roseanne Barr has a history of making awful comments. She said people who eat at Chick-Fil-A should get cancer. She believed 9/11 […]

Trump’s Poll Numbers Improve Despite 90% Negative Coverage

by Steve MacDonald May 8, 2018

Under the circumstances, this is an impressive accomplishment. The liberal media’s war against President Trump was as fierce as ever during the first four months of 2018, but the onslaught appears to be for naught: In the face of massive and hostile coverage from ABC, CBS and NBC, Trump’s overall job approval rating actually rose, from 37 […]

Who Covered NHGOP Call for NH Dems to Denounce Stevens 2A Ban?

by Steve MacDonald March 29, 2018

If you didn’t get the email and you didn’t read it here, you might not know about it. About what? A State GOP email blast with a video asking New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation to denounce the idea of Repealing the Second Amendment. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens posited the idea in a New […]

Cruz For Trouble

by Ed Naile February 18, 2018

If ever there was a case of the so-called “school shooter” phenomenon being about guns – this Florida case isn’t it. I see the anti-Second Amendment industry has mobilized its minions about as fast as a Russian can put together an anti-Hillary for President parade float, but this incident is not about how militaristic a […]

Challenging “Banned Books Week”

by Ellen Kolb September 27, 2017

It’s “Banned Books Week.” Pardon my groan. I rant about this every year. No end in sight, alas. The folks behind Banned Books Week – a coalition of the American Library Association and allied groups – lost all credibility with me years ago when they conflated “banned” and “challenged,” especially when the challenge is to […]

Men Support Topless Women – No Kidding, Really?

by Steve MacDonald August 16, 2017

The media has a thankless job for which we give them endless grief, almost all of it deserved. No, it’s not just the bias. Sometimes it’s the stupid stuff like this. Hampton Beach is holding another Go Topless Day on August 26th. The picture leading the story has two women and a man in the […]

Granite Status Mentions Donations by “The Mooch” but Nothing about Debbie Wasserman Schultz

by Steve MacDonald August 3, 2017

Dan Tuohy’s Granite Status leads with  ‘The Mooch’ donated to NH politicians,’ including this gem. Perhaps the surprising thing, based on the many donations reported to the FEC, is that Scaramucci didn’t also donate to Shaheen or another Granite State Democrat. We could say the same thing about the scandalous Debbie Wasserman Schultz. There’s no record […]

A man implicated in a growing scandal involving several congressional offices, computer equipment, and the data on some damaged hard drives.

Remember When the Press Pissed and Moaned About Access to President Obama?

by Steve MacDonald July 12, 2017

Because we forget, “Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the president while he is performing his official duties,” according to a letter the organizations sent to the White House. “As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens, officials in this administration are blocking the […]

Why am I not surprised at the GOP running dead last?

by Skip July 1, 2017

All we hear from the Dems and the Media how BAD Trump has been – then why does the general public rate Trump better?  Mostly because, all tweets aside, he is getting things done which is what he campaigned on and is doing.  He is keeping his campaign promises for the most part and the […]

Trump Press Secretary Takes Media To Task On ‘Fake News’

by Steve MacDonald January 22, 2017

Having problems with the player, go here. This isn’t the Bush Administration. They aren’t going to let ‘sleeping media dogs lie.’ And that’s fine. We already know the progressive press is going to go all out to cover, uncover, and report every move any Republican Administration makes, doubly so with Trump. We’ll get to measure the […]

The NH State Senate Passed Right to Work Yesterday

by Steve MacDonald January 20, 2017

Right to Work (RTW) has passed the State Senate and moved on to the New Hampshire House. I learned this while walking past the newspaper stand leaving Wal-Mart today. The Nashua Telegraph lead their report with the words, “Senate passes so-called right to work…” So-called Right to Work. I laughed out loud. Yeah, it’s the Nashua […]

Dinosaur Media Peddles Fake News…

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2017

The media and Democrats doth protest too much about fake news. They are, after all, the masters of the craft. (The Federalist) The “fake news” hysteria came, after all, from the same people who previously brought us “fake but accurate.” If you don’t remember that phrase, here’s a refresher. In the 2004 election, CBS’s Dan […]

Trump Thrives off Media Hostility

by Steve MacDonald January 13, 2017

It’s going to be a fun few years. Trump thrives off of media hostility, and the more hostile — and the less defensible — the better. It allows him to portray himself as the victim of a stilted establishment. It fires up his supporters. It keeps the debate on terrain that is familiar and favorable […]

USA Today Article Has Ironic Headline

by Steve MacDonald December 26, 2016

The Manchester paper has several pages inserted daily from USA Today. One of the articles in this morning’s edition is titled “Don’t let platform’s like Amazon own your soul.” My first thought was “Don’t let platforms like the Democrat Party’s own your soul.” This is, after all, USA Today.

“Media carries with it a credibility that is totally undeserved”

by Steve MacDonald November 21, 2016

From the late Michael Chrichton Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, […]
