So, supporting Israel is now RAAAAACIST?

ONLY on MSNBS do miscreants like this apologist for anti-Semitism get air time

Executive director of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation Youssef Munayyer said on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that the Republican Party supports Israel because its base is “xenophobic, nativist, and at many times racist.”

Go read it all, the Left gets more pathetic every day. Pretty soon they will be race baiting what color tie Republicans wear

Leftist News Media Decline To Run Ad Warning Of A Nuclear-Armed Iran (Video)

Networks Decline To Run Ad Warning Of Dangers Of Nuclear Iran – Washington Free Beacon

.

.
Major networks declined to run an ad on their Sunday morning news shows from a bipartisan group of former senators warning of the seriousness of an Iranian nuclear bomb.

The ad comes from a new group called the American Security Initiative (ASI), which is led by former Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R, Ga.), Evan Bayh (D, Ind.), and Norm Coleman (R., Minn.).

Featured in the ad is a terrorist driving a van containing a nuclear bomb that detonates in the United States. It ends by urging for passage of the Corker-Menendez Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which would require any Iranian nuclear deal reached by the administration to be approved by Congress.

The group spent $500,000 to get the ad on the airwaves, specifically targeting markets in Washington, D.C., Lexington, Ky., and Springfield, Ill. The ads in Kentucky and Illinois call out Sens. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) and Dick Durbin (D., Ill.).

Though the ASI ad is on cable in each of the targeted markets, ABC, CBS, and NBC all declined to run the ad during their Sunday morning news programming.

Fox News aired the ad multiple times during Fox News Sunday.

ABC informed ASI that because the “subject matter” of the ad is “currently pervasive” in the news, the ad could not be aired during This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

Susan Sewell, ABC’s vice president of media relations, said that ABC is unable to comment further on the matter due to company policy.

CBS said the ad was declined for Face the Nation on a national level because it “didn’t meet their standards,” but declined to comment further on the situation. Local affiliates of CBS were free to make their own decision on whether or not to air the ad, but none chose to run it.

Attempts to buy ad time during NBC’s Meet the Press were also unsuccessful, though no reason was given for the decision. Multiple requests for comment to NBC have gone unanswered.

The ad has been on the air since last week on multiple cable channels including CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. Comcast, which owns NBC, is also running the ad in local markets.

Christopher Maloney, a spokesman for ASI, said that the American people should be concerned that the networks refused to run an ad addressing an issue that can “directly impact our national security.”

“Millions of network news viewers across the country are actively seeking information about our government’s ongoing negotiations with Iran,” Maloney said. “I think many Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, would be concerned to learn that ABC, CBS, and NBC decided not to run an ad discussing what can be done to influence the debate surrounding these negotiations, and how they carry the potential to directly impact our national security.”

Oh, I’m sorry, are we supposed to feel bad for Brian Williams?

Williams makes what ten million or so a year? He was, I repeat WAS, the most trusted newsman in America. He really was blessed. Yet, he chose, I repeat CHOSE, to lie like some awkward teenager trying to impress his peers? And not one lie, no, multiple lies, repeated multiple times. Sorry, that guy deserves nothing like sympathy. In truth, he has plenty of $$$$$, and he will resurface in some form sooner or later on TV, although I would bet he is finished at NBC. And, again, he has but one person to blame for that, himself. Donald Douglas has some more on Williams.

As a side note, NBc is choosing to replace Williams with Lester Holt? Seriously, Lester Holt! Why not shake it up a bit, try something, or someone new? I mean look at some names besides Holt, being thrown around

The New York Post reported that Carl Quintanilla and Willie Geist are on the short-list to replace Williams, and the network has taken an interest in bringing in someone younger to do the gig.

Yeah, NO!

“They’re going to need to replace him with someone who has at least 15 years left [in his or her career],” an insider told The Post.

The network could go in a different direction though. Thompson says Williams’ predecessor Tom Brokaw could jump back in the saddle if NBC mimics the way CBS handled Dan Rather’s stepping down.

Talk about a fossil? Brokaw? REALLY?

“They could use the strategy CBS did when they put gravitas-laden Bob Schieffer in to replace the disgraced Rather, and put Brokaw back in the chair to give it some respectability until the smoke clears.”

NBC brass could also tap “Today” show talent, some experts speculated.

“Matt Lauer is the best-known news person on the network,” Steinberg says, “and he has years of experience interviewing everyone from heads of state to celebrities. The question is ‘would he [want] to do it?’”

Lauer? Why on earth would they pick him?

Thompson says Savannah Guthrie, whose popularity has soared since joining “Today,” could be another possibility.

Oh boy, how exciting would that choice be huh? Hell, I can watch my neighbors Chevy rust and have more fun.

“It would be a strategic move especially now that there are again no women in the nightly anchor positions,” he says.

Katie Couric, says Steinberg, is another female to consider even though she has a job as the Yahoo Global News Anchor.

Katie Couric? Why not just stop having NBC Nightly News? No one wants to see that “perky” and by perky I mean phony brain donor any more. In truth of course, NBC is a disgrace, and as long as MSNBC is attached in  any way to NBC, well…. their credibility is nil!

To be honest, I have not watched NBC Nightly News in years and years ( I have not watched ABC World News Tonight or CBS Evening News either) so I really do not care who sits in that chair. But, could NBC earn my viewership with a better choice? Sure, here are a few suggestions.

Brit Hume, because he is Brit Hume! Can you imagine the leftist meltdown over NBC going with a Fox News guy? Millions would watch because Hume is credible, and millions of Fox hating Liberals would hate watch!

Megyn Kelly! Hey news is now ratings driven, and Megyn means ratings!

Harris Faulkner. Great voice, has good charisma, a talented news woman, and lets be honest, once viewers look into her eyes, they cannot look away.

Sharyl Attkisson. Oh yeah, that would be a game changer would it not? Team Obama would go nuts over a real journalist having that gig.

Finally, allow me to dream a bit here. NBC should hire Tamron Hall. She seems very sweet, and has great personality, she has been in the news game a while, and yes, I have an enormous crush on her. She is incredibly beautiful. Color me smitten

Dan Rather Backs NBC’s Brian Williams – Big Journalism

.

.
Disgraced former TV news anchor Dan Rather has come to the aid of embattled NBC anchor Brian Williams, saying that Williams is an “honest man.” But Williams is caught up in a scandal of his own making after admitting to lying about being in a helicopter downed by enemy RPG fire in Iraq in 2003.

Rather, who was fired by CBS in 2004 after helping to create and air a report that falsely claimed that President George W. Bush had deserted from the Texas Air National Guard, came out in support of Williams on Thursday.

“I don’t know the particulars about that day in Iraq,” Rather told Politico. “I do know Brian. He’s a longtime friend and we have been in a number of war zones and on the same battlefields, competing but together. Brian is an honest, decent man, an excellent reporter and anchor–and a brave one. I can attest that-like his predecessor Tom Brokaw–he is a superb pro, and a gutsy one.”

Rather’s vote of support came after Williams, who has been the chief anchor of NBC Nightly News since 2004, was forced to admit to his audience that he had “misremembered” the facts of the helicopter incident that he claimed he was involved in during an assignment in Iraq in 2003.

Brian Williams: Hey, why are all these chickens in my house?

Can you say coming home to roost?

Michelle Malkin reminds us of what Brian Williams, whose lies about being shot down in Iraq were just exposed, thinks of us lowly bloggers. We just don’t have the credibility of “professionals” like Williams who wear suits instead of bathrobes.

After years of experience in the news business, Williams said he has developed his own “strong BS meter” — he can watch the local news in any city in this country and tell you which anchors went out to dinner that night instead of staying and writing between the 6 o’clock and 11 o’clock news. Williams also said he can tell which anchors write their own copy and who’s just reading whatever pops up on the teleprompter. On The Nightly News, Williams reviews every word of the copy before it goes on the teleprompter. “Any time I’ve kicked a word, it’s because I’ve never seen it before,” Williams said.

The Nightly News attracts between 10 and 11 million viewers each night. But the playing field for prime-time nightly news is in constant motion, with NBC, CBS, and ABC jockeying for the top slot in the ratings game. The tremendous growth of online media — especially blogs — in recent years has altered the face of journalism.

“You’re going to be up against people who have an opinion, a modem, and a bathrobe,” said Williams. “All of my life, developing credentials to cover my field of work, and now I’m up against a guy named Vinny in an efficiency apartment in the Bronx who hasn’t left the efficiency apartment in two years.”

Two points for Brian Williams, or asshole as I call him. First I do not blog in a bathrobe, in fact I do not own a bathrobe, and second, I never made up a story to pretend to be a war hero.

Looks like Dana Milbank is smoking crack again

Delusion at its worst?

On MSNBC’s PoliticsNation on Tuesday, host Al Sharpton touted liberal Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank making a “bold prediction” about the remainder of Barack Obama’s presidency: “…you wrote, quote, ‘If the economy continues on its current trajectory, as most expect, he’ll leave office a popular president and leave the 2016 Democratic nominee with a relatively easy past to victory.'” Milbank doubled down on the prediction made in his Friday column: “Well, it’s not so surprising. He crossed fifty percent today. I think he’s on his way up to fifty-five percent, that puts him in a category not with George W. Bush but with Ronald Reagan.” Sharpton happily replied: “I’ll leave it there, on the Reagan note.” 

Good Freaking Grief!
