Wonder what you would find if you frisked the liberal mainstream media during the 2008 presidential election?

Answer: They tried to kill stories about Obama’s ties to Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

…And this isn’t right-wing paranoia either. There is documents to prove it! Jonathan Strong – from The Daily Caller – reports:

It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign.

The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public – to dissociate himself from them. Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do?”

Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists. The tough questioning from the ABC anchors left many of them outraged. “George [Stephanopoulos],” fumed Richard Kim of the Nation, is “being a disgusting little rat snake.”

Others went further. According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

Michael Tomasky, a writer for the Guardian, also tried to rally his fellow members of Journolist: “Listen folks–in my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn’t about defending Obama. This is about how the [mainstream media] kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.”

Oh boy… Doesn’t that sound familiar? One again, we see how quickly and often the far-left media is willing pull out the ‘race-card’ in order to demonize the opposition. Quite pathetic if you ask me.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Allee Bautsch, chief campaign fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend Joe Brown after they left the Southern Republican Leadership Conference?

Answer: They were violently attacked!

Luckily the couple will be okay, but Allee Bautsch suffered a broken leg and her boyfriend – Joe Brown – suffered a concussion and fractured jaw and nose in the alleged incident.

Obviously we don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but there are reports on the internet that this attack might have been politically motivated. Free Republic reports:

The Hayride reports that a source who visited Bautsch at the hospital the day after the attack says they were told the couple was attacked for wearing Palin buttons:

Two people at the Brennan’s event have now confirmed that the protest had largely broken up by the time it ended, but we also understand from someone who visited Allee Bautsch in the hospital Saturday morning that she and Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on (she heard one of the attackers say “Let’s get them, they have Palin pins on” – so the attack WAS politically motivated as its victims understood it. It was not a mugging, it was not an argument gone wrong and it was not a bar fight.

The police are still investigating the violent attack. It will be interesting to see what they will come up with. Here’s a photo of the Republican couple:

And the liberal mainstream media portrays the Tea Partiers as being violent… What a joke! I find it quite absurd that two conservatives are violently attacked, seriously injured, and sent to the hospital but not a word of it is mentioned by the mainstream media. Although, they will repeatedly provide coverage over the alleged use of the N-word during a Tea Party even though NO ONE can provide proof of it ever happening… I guess the hundreds/thousands of cameras at the event must have missed it.

The liberal hypocrisy continues…

*UPDATE* – April 14, 2010 – 1:20 PM.

The police have released a description of one of the attackers:

One of the suspects was described as a Caucasian male who appeared to be dirty, in his 20’s, 6′1″ tall, thin build with a thin faceHe had a beard and auburn color hair in a pony tail. He was wearing a light color T shirt and dark color pants.

Sounds like a dirty liberal to me… I’m just saying.

(Via Gateway Pundit) Here are some photos of liberals protesting at the SRLC that just so happen to fit the description listed above: Photo #1 | Photo #2 | Photo #3.

Citizens with information that can help solve this crime are asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at 822-1111, toll-free 1-877-903-STOP(7867). You could receive a cash reward of up to $2,500.00 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the responsible person(s).

MSNBC's Ed Schultz.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Ed Schultz’s opinion of former Vice President Dick Cheney?

Answer: Apparently he wants to play football with Cheney’s heart or something…

Yikes! :shock:

You know those liberals… Such a classy, caring, and respectful group of individuals. Don’t you think?

Video-Note: In a bid for street cred with the lunatic fringe, MSNBC talker Ed Schultz moves into Mike Malloy territory with this deranged rant during his syndicated radio program.

Side-Note: Who on Earth gave his pinhead a radio show in the first place?

And don’t forget…

Ouch!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked MSNBC’s Chris Matthew when he was interviewing Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL)?

Answer: Surprisingly, Chris Matthews did not hold back any punches.

:shock: Whaa…!?!?!?

What is this world coming to!? A staunch liberal attacking another staunch liberal on a really staunch liberal cable television news network? If you watched the video I posted above you better cherish it, because this is some rare footage you might never see again.

Side-Note: Rep. Grayson (D-FL) probably thought this was going to be a calm interview with a fellow staunch liberal… Think again sir! It appears MSNBC is not as cozy as Rep. Grayson thought. Poor little Congressman.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked General Electric – the parent company to NBC/Universal?

Answer: SOLD! Comcast has bought NBC/Universal from G.E.

FOX News reports:

Comcast Corp. announced Thursday it plans to buy a majority stake in NBC Universal for $13.75 billion, giving the nation’s largest cable TV operator control of the Peacock network, an array of cable channels and a major movie studio.

Comcast would name three people to the board and GE two, and Comcast would manage the joint venture. Jeff Zucker would remain NBC Universal’s CEO and report to Comcast Chief Operating Officer Steve Burke. NBC Universal’s headquarters are expected to stay in New York.

Overall, there are still some government hoops that the deal has to jump through in order for it to pass officially, but we will see.

The BIG question is: Will Comcast eventually change NBC’s failing cable-news service MSNBC in order to compete better with FOX News and CNN?

Hmm…

Lou-Dobbs-CNN

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the relationship between Lou Dobbs and CNN?

Answer: An $8 million severance package to leave.

Ouch… After working at CNN for decades, I guess the company is lagging in the loyalty department:

CNN was so sick of Lou Dobbs, it gave him an $8 million severance package to leave, The Post has learned.

“They wanted him out,” according to a source.

Dobbs, who a source said had a year and a half to go on his $12 million contract, shocked viewers last Wednesday by announcing he was quitting.

CNN boss Jonathan Klein and Dobbs, 64, had been publicly feuding over the kind of reporting Dobbs was doing on his show — especially stories about illegal immigration and the anti-Obama “birther” movement, which contends the president was not born in Hawaii and is not an American citizen.

Hey, look at the bright side: CNN has been plummeting in the rankings and I’m sure he will find a better gig somewhere else. Maybe we’ll know by tonight:

Dobbs is set to give his first TV interview since then to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly tonight, leading to speculation that he may be headed there. But TV insiders said such a move is highly unlikely.

Interesting… Any bets that Lou might move to FOX Business Network?

My chips are down.

CBS' liberal bias.

CBS' liberal bias.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the people behind CBS?

Answer: Liberal bias.

Oh my God! It’s absolutely shocking! Haha. No, not really… Mika Brzezinski says that during her 10 years at CBS, she knew of one George W. Bush supporter.

Hmm… that wouldn’t lead to any type of bias towards Republicans or Democrats, would it? You decide, but it’s a common sense answer.

Side-Note: I find it interesting that this came out on MSNBC. Now if only they would of dug down deep to confirm the 100% liberal working staff at their own cable-television network, haha.

The idiot Mike Sanchez.

The idiot Mike Sanchez.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Mike Sanchez’s sources for this story?

Answer: Wikipedia… Seriously.

This is unbelievable! The far-left once again is trying to bring down the giant conservative force that is, Rush Limbaugh. Are we surprised? Demonizing and character assassination 101 taught by liberals. The video clip above is a perfect example!

Remember this quote used by Mike Sanchez to make Rush look like a racist?:

“Limbaugh’s perceived racist diatribes are too many to name. Here’s a sample- he once declared that ‘slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back. I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”

Is this good reporting on behalf of CNN and Mike Sanchez? Not at all! Why? Because wikipedia is not a credible source for a story! You know, the website where anyone can post anything about someone! In other words, a complete fabrication. Here is why CNN just lost huge credibility:

The first of these quotes has already been debunked most thoroughly, long before Rush’s bid to buy the Rams became public news.  It is self-evidently the complete fabrication of someone with a wiki account, which was then picked up by the unscrupulous Huberman and reported as fact (with no citations at all) in his book.  The other, also attributed to Huberman, has never been sourced, and Huberman has never cited any original article, or even given any indication as to when this alleged statement was made.  Of course, these facts make it utterly impossible to refute the claim; without any date or context, Rush cannot even call witnesses who were present during the alleged confirmation to confirm or deny that he ever made such a statement.  It is literally impossible for Limbaugh (or anyone else) to offer convincing proof that they have never at any time made a given statement (other than their own denial, which Rush has already given).  It is preposterous to ask anyone to prove that they did not make a statement if you cannot even so much as offer a time and place where the statement is alleged to have occurred.

Bravo CNN! Bravo! Lets make a guy out to be a racist with fabricated evidence… Good reporting. As for Mike Sanchez, you are an awful reporter and have a huge lack of class. When it comes to journalism (on a major cable news network), it is utterly corrupt to use lies in order to assassinate someone’s character, even if your blatantly trying to hurt Limbaugh’s bid for the St. Louis Rams.

But hey, enough about Rush Limbaugh. Lets talk about what a wonderful and nice guy Mike Sanchez is:

Rick Sanchez ran over a man and left the guy for dead.

It was December 10, 1990. Sanchez was leaving a Miami Dolphins game when he ran over a man. Sanchez fled the scene for two hours.

Finally, Sanchez came back. Two hours after the incident, Sanchez was still drunk — well above the legal limit. But Sanchez was a well known Miami reporter with lots of friends on the police force. He was never charged with the hit and run. He just pled no contest to DUI.

The man Sanchez hit and ran away from? He died in 1995, paralyzed and in a nursing home.

And this is the guy using lies to paint someone ELSE as a bad human being? GIVE ME A BREAK!

CNN is once again a joke… The same news network that fact checks a SNL comedy skit, but apparently not their own reporters.

Side-Note: Mike Sanchez hasn’t apologized yet for using wikipedia as a credible source in an attempt to assassinate Rush’s character. Good reporter? Far from it.

*UPDATE: Another idiot (from my home state) trying to use the fabricated quotes from Wikipedia:

Hmm… It’s funny how the left is trying SO desperately to paint Rush as a negative person and they just can’t pull it off. It’s such a pathetic attempt that they are pulling quotes from imaginary sources that only exist in Neverland (not Michael Jackson’s ranch). Haha.

Asher-Roth-Wise

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Asher Roth over his thoughts on Obama’s Nobel Prize Prize?

Answer: A smart observation.

After decades of attacking politics in general, the hip-hop community gave up their hatred for politicians and picked up Obama campaign signs. After 9 months of awful policies, all I can say is: Wow! Finally some common sense expressed by someone in the hip-hop community (who voted for Obama). Rapper Asher Roth said this on Twitter:

Asher-Twitter

And of course, did the hip-hop community enjoy Mr. Roth’s little ‘tweets’? Not at all… On their ‘Blackout’ section, Rap Radar had this to say:

You can say what you say but watch what you say about our President. Think a Nobel Prize was too soon? Fine. You are not alone. You think Obama should have accomplished more since he was sworn in this past January? Fine. You are not alone. But you young man didn’t need to express your freedom of speech in such an insensitive way. Especially mere months after your stupid Rutgers joke. You’re a part of a culture built by Black and Latinos and you continue to speak in a disrespectful way towards African-Americans. Maybe I’m being too sensitive but I just don’t like it. The hip-hop community galvanized to help elect our commander-in-chief and we shouldn’t turn our back on him this soon. What are you really doin’ to change the world, disco kid?

What a joke. Hey Rap Radar, thanks for pointing out that hip-hop culture was built by African-Americans and Latinos. May I also remind you that it was founded on the basis of FREE SPEECH. It is not disrespectful to criticize our President on his policies. I don’t know if you realized, but the Nobel Prize was based on his first 12 days… Now if you could find me anything of importance Obama accomplished in those 12 days, I’d be more than happy to side with you. But since he hasn’t done anything of importance while in office for 9 months, I doubt you’ll prove me wrong.

Props to Asher for speaking his mind and actually having some common sense.

Side-Note: People need to stop loving Obama for simply being Obama. Wake up zombies!

Another Side-Note: I remember when Killer Mike criticized Obama and I didn’t hear anyone attacking him.
