It would be great if all of the mass media in this country would take his advice.

What happened in Newtown, CT was horrible, gut wrenching, and/or whatever spin you want to put on it. To interview police, first responders is one thing, but to interview children of a school, that went through a horrible nightmare is uncalled for. The children that attend that school, will be living this for the rest of their lives.
The media: have you no shame?

According to an article in AlterNet, Fox News viewers are wildly misinformed, and has seven things that prove it, done by a poll conducted by Farleigh Dickinson University.
The release this week of yet another survey indicating the more you watch Fox News the less they know, has once again shone a spotlight on one of the unique features that defines Rupert Murdoch’s cable news outlet – it is very, very good at misinforming people. And its very bad at reporting the news. In other words: Propaganda? Yes. News? Not so much. Read more…

This guy here is a real loser. Hacking and snitching on the Occupy Wall Street protesters, making up lies, and giving the info to the NYPD and the FBI. Reading the story in Gawker, its sounds like he needs to get a life.
Ed Henry of Fox News clashes with the President, at a White House press conference. He’s another nit wit with Fox News that shows no respect for Obama. Pathetic.

Has the Facebook craze finally peaked in the US? The Huffington Post states that it has lost close to 6 million users in the month of May. It has seen growth in some countries, but
in the US and Canada, its the other way around. Myself, I’ve never had any use for Facebook, with all the problems it has and creates. Twitter works just fine for me.
It looks like Breitbart got his jollies off, showing off a pic of Weiner’s nude body.
Conservative firebrand Andrew Breitbart revealed on Wednesday a photo that he says Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) took of his own genitals.
Breitbart showed the photo to the hosts of Sirius XM radio show “Opie and Anthony” during a visit to the studio.
For Sarah Palin to say that President Obama is a liar, is down right disrepectful, and uncalled for. She said it live on Fox News, when she was being questioned by Sean Hannity. This woman has been lying for so long now, that she is a believer of her own lies. I truly believe that she has some sort of mental health issues, especially whenever she speaks, its all psycho-babble, word salad, incoherent, a mish-mash of vocabulary dumbness. Whenever I watch and listen to any of her video clips, I seem to drop my head into my hands, roll the eyes, and then shake my head, and wonder the hell is she talking about.
Its time and I wish it would happen soon, that the mainstream media, (which incidentally she is an employee of Fox News), would call her out on the stupidity, and the lies she keeps frothing out of mouth, like a person is on a two day bender. The bloggers can keep harping on the shit she says, but that only goes so far. What it will take is the media and the press, to quit pandering to her, and make her answer the questions that should be asked, such as, have back up facts, and where did she get them, and cite the source of her material. So, the more they keep treating her with kid gloves, the more this nut bag will keep going on with off the wall nonsense.
The people that think she is the best thing to come along since sliced bread, have a real problem, and are just as delusional as she is.

John McCain told Mike Wallace of Fox News fame, that Palin can beat Obama in ’12. Of course Grandpa McCain went to say that she has been mercilessly and relentlessly attacked. She also inspires great passion. Yeah right. (my emphasis)

Bryan Fischer said that Herman Cain is “Authentically Black” as opposed to Barack Obama who isn’t. We all know that Obama’s
parents, the father black, and the mother is white. But in Fischer’s eyes, he sees it differently. This guy who calls himself a Christian, and is with the American Family Association, is nothing but an inflammatory racist. That is an association I wouldn’t want anything to do with.
After the feigned outrage over “Cop Killer” Common, Ted Nugent appeared on Mike Huckabee’s show, and Nugent was all proud and puffing up his ego, by telling the audience, how proud he is of the warriors that killed bin Laden. He also says he hangs out with them, and watches them train. I don’t think so. Then he went on about the government should be doing a better job securing out borders.
Interesting piece in Buzz Flash at Truthout, concerning Fox News inciting racism.
Marsha West of the American Family Association, has a warning for all Christians who practice Yoga, is against the Gospel of Jesus Christ. According to the article in AlterNet, practicing Yoga “induces and altered state of consciousness.” It also says that Buddhism is evil. Of course this is the association the crackpot Bryan Fisher belongs to. So you can where all this nonsense is leading to.
Rachel Maddow, makes a good point about Conservative media bias, on the Sunday morning talk show. It was a ratio of 3-1, in favor of the talking heads, from the Bush adminisration. A total of nine Republicans and only 3 Democrats were on the shows this past Sunday.
Paul Ryan, the anointed budget writer for the GOP led House, accuses ThinkProgress of “Stacking Crowds” at his town hall meetings in his home state of Wisconsin.
When the Democrats was having their town hall meetings in 2009, it was alright for the Tea Baggers, and other right wing loons, to scream, shout, and wreak all kinds of havoc. But when the Republicans have town hall meetings, they say people are bussed in to disrupt them, and its not right to do that. Well Ryan, all I can say is “Pay Back is a Bitch.”
Interesting editorial in The Boston Globe, concerning the budget. I agree it is time, to forget worrying about the Tea Party, and get this budget resolved.
