by Steve MacDonald January 31, 2014

I think we all know how ‘sensitive’ New Hampshire Democrats get when you start playing games with ‘press access.’  So I wonder what their thoughts are with regard to  what their Abortion Goddess Wendy Davis just did in Travis County, Texas. The Travis County Democratic Party held a fundraiser with Wendy Davis on Tuesday, and […]

The NRSC has a new video out. I’m no party pulpit-pounder but this does a neat job of encapsulating the uncivil rhetoric from the left with regard to the continuing resolution battle and the Obama shutdown.

With the soot of exploding cigars still powdery on the reddening faces of gun control pouncers like good ol’ Piers the-living-skidmark Morgan, Dianne torch-the-constitution-it-hurts-my-head Feinstein, and a myriad of others in the media that prematurely wet themselves in anticipation of yet another anti-gun debate trundling its way into public with fresh evidence of an “assault […]

by Steve MacDonald July 19, 2013

What a coincidence.  Jury decision.  Holder is marched out to says the words “Stand Your Ground,” my own NH AG gives it the old liberal Amen, and the very next day the Obama Media has begun collectively grinding the stand your ground axe like it was some progressive Gregorian chant.

Data Point – It’s almost to the point where nobody cares about newspapers

by Skip June 17, 2013

Hear that, Michael Kitch? Unlike the supposed “demographic death spiral” that Sen. Lindsay “Gramnesty” is predicting for the GOP if we don’t legalize 50 million illegals, this IS a death down slope for this leg of the MSM.  How can you have a biz model where 77% of your consumers don’t know or truly don’t […]

The U.S. government joins China to target an American newspaper….

by Tim Condon March 18, 2013

Well, well, well: President Obama, U.S. Attorney General Holder, and the Chinese communist dictatorship have teamed up to attack an American newspaper, using a little-known federal law. Coincidentally, no doubt, it’s a newspaper that doesn’t openly support any of the three (unlike, say, the Washington Post or the New York Times). Read all about it. (And […]

The Lesson From Phil Mickelson

by Steve MacDonald January 25, 2013

Phil Mickelson made some observations about his taxes.   He said they were getting kind of high for his tastes and he might move from California to another state. The media got in their freight train and ran Phil over. So what is the lesson for all the other ‘Phil Mickelsons’ who are successful but live […]

Update to Barry / Stacie Lawton’s NH House Representative career

by Skip November 27, 2012

Union Leader: “I don’t think it would look good for the state,” she said. “I don’t think it would look good for the party, and I don’t think that the citizens would like to see their beloved representative-elect be expelled.” As Steve pointed out in his post, Stacie Marie / Barry Laughton decided that disclosing […]

Media Revolt? Don’t Hold Your Breath.

by Steve MacDonald September 21, 2012

The Univison interview of Barack Uh..Um..Er..Oh..Bama will go down in history as perhaps the first time Barack Obama has had to face tough questions, as president, from the media.  This is in part because the media loves him, and in part due to the administrations ability to use that love-affair to control the message, by […]

Media Millions

by Steve MacDonald May 29, 2012

While the 99% and the Democrats are bashing bankers for not sharing their wealth, take a look at the people running media and entertainment.  (Just to give you a baseline, the most well paid “banker” had 21 million in compensation in the same year.) Les Moonves, the CEO of CBS Corp. (CBS), was paid $69.9 […]

Media Irresponsibility

by Don April 15, 2012

The editorial in Friday’s The Citizen, reprinted from the Concord Monitor was totally irresponsible.  So, I submitted the following as community commentary to The Citizen, and something similar to the Concord Monitor.  I doubt they will publish my input: +++++++++++++ Please check the attribution of The Citizen’s April 13, 2012 editorial, titled, “A budget to […]

I am just going to keep saying this, and saying this, and saying this while the Presidential campaign is ongoing: Will the Press be willing to do that investigative homework?  Or, will this still hold true: After all, at the Washington Press Corp Dinner where Obama let this loose: “Most of you all covered me… […]

Then there are the idiot editorial writers at the Portsmouth Herald….

by Tim Condon January 9, 2012

I just love it when we can go after the lamestream media here in New Hampshire…and the Portsmouth Herald certainly qualifies as “lamestream”! Portsmouth Herald Editorial Board again engages in fiction writing, continues regurgitating inaccurate Democrat and Union Boss talking points Despite the looming New Hampshire Republican primary, the Portsmouth Herald used its editorial space on the Sunday before […]

The Media’s New Peep Show

by Steve MacDonald July 29, 2011

Several in the New Hampshire dead tree press, and their digital protrusions, are jumping on the latest trend in information sharing (or lack of it, actually), the registration wall. The registration wall is similar to the pay-wall except that you can receive limited access (or metered) content for free, but only up to a point. It’s the velvet rope that leads to another velvet rope from which you can see through the open door, but no more.

On Missing Chris Matthews

by Steve MacDonald April 20, 2011

You should read the entire post by Greg Opelka here (Breitbart’s Big Journalism.com), because it is about the left wings tunnel vision on the racism narrative, but before you do that I wanted to share a snipped from that post that borders on brilliant. It is the kind of writing I aspire to (missing miserably and often) so when I find it I have to share it.

Rumors Of A Recovery…

by Steve MacDonald April 9, 2010

As rumors of the recovery continue, consider this.  The same willing media that over emphaszied the failing economy to get democrats elected is the same willing media that is selling a recovery to protect them now that they are in office. One possible upside.  People are less trusting of the media, in a downward arc […]
