Some thoughts on the Pindell / Cline / Douglas criticisms of the Honor Your Oath Rally – Part 1

I’m not even sure that James Pindell, Chuck Douglas, and Drew Cline were even at the same rally I was from reading their criticism (one at the WMUR site, two Union Leader Op-Eds)  – or even bothered to watched the videos that were up at several sites.  Each of them decided to tear the folks …

Not long after that, (within the same hour) only slightly later chronologically in the news feed, we see this content posted by WMUR… When you try to link to the first story, about both a Republican and a Democrat in hot water…that …

My post on Rep Schmidt’s stating “All murders aren’t the same” has gotten her unwanted attention and wedged her into a bind. WMUR’s Political Director James Pindell picked up on it and added her …

Ovide Lamontagne – strong words from the nicest guy in politics for the Jeanne Shaheen Machine (Nasty??)

Ovide Lamontagne was on WMUR’s Close Up this past Sunday (and yes, I DVR it and yes, I forgot that I had transcribed this, so putting it up now.  Josh McElveen, trying to wheedle out of Ovide whether or not he’s going to run for a specific office this time around.  Here, he tries to …

WMUR demonstrates bias in Journalism – covers sparse National Day to Demand Action anti-gun rally, ignores .223 Day of Resistance pro-gun rally

Sparsely attended indeed for a day where the “kick the Second Amendment lovers” folks decided to have a “National Day to Demand Action”.  WMUR decided to cover it, with a quick spot at 5pm by reporter, Jennifer Gannon, sweeping her hand towards the middle of the Portsmouth’s Market Square announcing the soon-to-start rally – showing …
