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.

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?

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.
