Attkisson was first to expose the national audience to Operation Fast and Furious, a story the “Big Three” networks seemed determined to ignore but for Attkisson’s persistence. Continue reading
They say you can’t take it with you, but Leonard Smith proved that you can. When the World War II veteran died last November at age 86, his family published an obituary for him that contained an unusual request of those wishing to pay their respects to his memory:
Leonard Smith hated pointless bureaucracy, thoughtless inefficiency and bad ideas born of good intentions. He loved his wife, admired and respected his children and liked just about every dog he ever met. He will be greatly missed by those he loved and those who loved him. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you cancel your subscription to The New York Times. [Emphasis added]
In North Korea, they’re called “minders,” just as they were in the former Soviet Union. The Obama administration, however, calls them “researchers,” and they’re set to be placed in newsrooms across the country supposedly to learn how editorial decisions are made. Right.
A post at the Investor’s Business Daily described the situation perfectly:
“Boston’s News Leader” is how ABC affiliate WCVB sees itself. You may see the station differently after you read its report on a pair of knockout attacks that took place Saturday in Cambridge.
The incident took place outside a furniture store, which has a surveillance camera trained on the entrance and the sidewalk beyond. The video, which may be viewed here, clearly shows the suspect — who is black — walking up behind an unsuspecting couple and clocking the man in the head, causing him to tumble to the pavement.
The latest victim of the ubiquitous “knockout game” is a disabled Army veteran who was attacked in downtown Cleveland on him on Feb. 7, 2014. While neither CBS News nor local station WOIO identifies the race of the perpetrators, both news outlets include the victim’s account of verbal taunts against him, which suggest the attackers were black. Baby steps.
The target of the pointless attack was Matthew Robinson, who told a WOIO reporter that he was initially surrounded by six to eight teenagers while riding a bus. The pack followed and attacked him, took his belongings, and videotaped the assault. During the attack, Robinson maintains:
When will actor Samuel L. Jackson learn to keep his yap shut unless he’s reciting lines prepared for him by a Hollywood script writer? When he shares his own heartfelt opinion, he creates uncomfortable situations for his fellow liberals, who are then forced to explain why what he said wasn’t so bad. For example, When he weighed in on not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial last August by announcing that it’s “open season” on young black men, the liberal media spent days mopping up after him.
Recently, he was at it again. In an interview appearing in February’s Ebony Magazine:
[T]he 63-year-old revealed the reason why he casted [sic] his vote for President Barack Obama. “I voted for Barack because he was black,” Jackson confessed.”Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.”
… “That’s American politics, pure and simple,” Jackson said. “[Obama's] message didn’t mean sh*t to me.” “When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a n-word.”
The latest example came in the form of a tweet issued by NBC News’ Shawna Thomas, who noticed Michelle Obama’s $12,000.00 (you read that right) designer dress made by Carolina Herrera:
It’s to be expected in a nation where racism can be seen in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Writing at the liberal rag Salon, Joan Walsh unleashed her inner Chris Matthews and claimed that Bill O’Reilly’s question to Barack Obama about fundamental transformation was “borderline racist.” Seriously.
“Hi. My name is _____, and I have a problem.” That’s more of less the format whereby first-timers at meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous begin their 12-step journey to — they hope — recovery. Inserting “MSNBC” in the above blank seems curious, but then the cable “news” network suffers from a unique addiction. There is no official name for the affliction in the literature, but that is because no other television in network history has been unable to go for a period of 24 hours without accusing a political party of racial bias.
For those who missed the story yesterday, some moron at MSNBC created a stir when he tweeted:
The Black Student Union at the University of Michigan (UMBSU) is back in the news. Last week, LU reported that the UMBSU had delivered an ultimatum to the administration to meet seven demands (including a requirement that 10% of the campus be represented by black students) or face “physical action.” That sounds like a threat of violence, which may well explain the BSU’s latest demand: that the race of suspects in campus-related crime be stricken from crime alerts.
CBS Minnesota notes that a letter containing the demand was sent to the university’s president, Eric Kaler, and was signed by members of the African American and African Studies, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, and Huntley House for African American Males. A copy of the letter was also delivered to Pamela Wheelock, the vice president of University Services. From the letter:
