There’s Already 17 Times More Coverage On Christie Scandal Than In Last Six Months Of IRS – Media Research Center

In less than 24 hours, the three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service controversy. Since the story broke on Wednesday that aides to the New Jersey governor punished a local mayor’s lack of endorsement with a massive traffic jam, ABC, CBS and NBC have responded with 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage. Since July 1, these same networks managed a scant two minutes and eight seconds for the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.

In contrast, journalists such as Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos pounced on the developing Christie story. The GMA host opened the program on Thursday by announcing, “Chris Christie in crisis. Calls at this hour for the feds to step in, investigate the explosive e-mails.” [See a video montage below. MP3 audio here.]

Stephanopoulos later wondered, “One of the big questions right now, how much has it hampered his White House prospects?” Guest Matt Dowd insisted that, on a scale from one to ten, the controversy was already at a “four or five.”

On the CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley sounded a similar alarm: “Tonight, a potential presidential candidate caught up in scandal. E-mails show massive New Jersey traffic jams were engineered by aides to Governor Chris Christie as political payback.”

NBC Nightly News host Brian Williams immediately spun the story as a political pitfall for the possible presidential contender: “In a jam. A big problem for a man with big ambitions. Tonight, how a traffic nightmare on the world’s busiest bridge has spilled into a full blown scandal with the power to damage Chris Christie’s political future.”

Since Wednesday night, NBC included six reports over 14 minutes and 14 seconds. CBS devoted five reports over 12 minutes and 27 seconds. ABC managed 4 stories over seven minutes and 47 seconds.

As a comparison over the last six months, NBC featured a scant five seconds on updating the IRS story. CBS responded with a minute and 41 seconds. ABC produced a meager 22 seconds.

Although the media downplayed the IRS controversy from July through December (it first broke in May), it’s not as though there wasn’t much happening. As the Media Research Center documented, many potential story leads developed.

In December, House investigator Darrell Issa announced that the FBI and IRS chief counsel is stonewalling the investigation. In October, newly obtained e-mails showed that the scandal-plagued Lois Lerner, the woman at the center of the controversy, illegally gave Tea Party tax info to the FEC. That same month, it came out that an IRS official may have given confidential information to the White House.

These stories were buried by ABC, CBS and NBC, the same networks that have immediately deluged Republican Chris Christie, a 2016 contender, with coverage for his scandal.

Best Damned Governor in America

To any anti-gun weenies who are afraid of guns, and thus deeply aggrieved and offended by real men, AKA Conservative men this is for you. I hope you are so offended you cry yourself to sleep tonight

How many governors would take this picture? Certainly not New Jersey’s Stay Puff Marshmallow Man Yeah, exactly! H/T The Blaze

Best Damn Governor

No, the Virginia election was not a rejection of the Tea Party, it was a failure of the establishment GOP

The media, and of course Democrats will point to the defeat of Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governors election and say that this is a huge, massive, epic, and crippling defeat for the Tea Party, and Conservatism. And when they say that, they will be either lying or engaging in a bit of propaganda. If any entity failed in that race, it was the GOP leadership, which allowed Democrats to outspend them 10-1, and a finger of blame might also point at Chris Christie. Christie, with his reelection assured was asked, repeatedly, to come campaign for Kuccinelli. He declined, how is that for team work? Thanks Governor, really

By the way, it seems that Kuccinelli won among the middle class voters in Virginia, while McAuliffe won among the poor, and wealthy. I guess the duel Democratic strategies of make the rich feel guilty, and promise the poor you will give them everything worked. Odd, because those who will be hardest hit by McAuliffe’s Left wing policies will be those poor that were so busy voting with their hands out that they could not understand that the promises of leftism NEVER materialize.

 

Chris Christie, a little closer to admitting he is a Democrat every day

Guess who Governor RINO is blaming for a possible government shutdown. Go on, guess

Via Newsmax:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday “responsible Republican leaders” would not allow the government to shut down.

“That, by definition, is a failure. You’ve gotta work it out,” Christie, a Republican, said in a segment set to air Sunday on “CBS This Morning,” Politico reported.

Christie didn’t name any GOP politicians, but his remarks came the day after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finished a 21-hour speech on the Senate floor advocating for the defunding of Obamacare. Both he and Cruz are seen as possible GOP contenders in the 2016 presidential race.”I think there’s got to be a solution other than that,” Christie said in the CBS episode, NJ.com reported. “I don’t think we should be doing that.”

“I think it’s always irresponsible if you’re running the government to be advocating for shutting it down,” Christie said.

Of course no Republican actually is advocating for shutting the government down, but Christie is playing politics here. Oh goodie, another politics over principles “Republican”

 

America, where illegal immigrants are treated better than Americans

Apparently enforcing laws on Americans is different than enforcing laws on illegal immigrants now

Two days after winning his party’s nomination for U.S. Senate Cory Booker is already pandering to La Raza. Senor Mayor has decreed that Newark, NJ will no longer detain illegal aliens.

The Newark Police Department has become the first law enforcement agency in New Jersey to refuse the federal government’s requests to detain people accused of minor crimes who are suspected of being in the U.S. illegally, according to immigration advocates.

In enacting the policy, Newark becomes the latest city to opt out of the most controversial part of the “Secure Communities” program implemented by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency in 2011, which allows the agency to ask local police to hold any suspect for up to 48 hours if their immigration status is called into question.

“Secure Communities” was designed to enhance ICE’s ability to track dangerous criminals who are undocumented immigrants. Under the policy the Department of Homeland Security reviews fingerprints collected by local police during an arrest, which then allows ICE to issue the detainer requests.

So if you’re an American citizen with outstanding parking tickets from East Nowhereville Idaho the Newark PD will run a warrant check and slap on the cuffs.

But if you swam across the Rio Grande and avoided paying taxes for the past 15 years they’ll send you on your way with an apology and a smile.

What is it with Democrats and selective enforcement of laws?

Of course as Chris points out, Steve Lonegan is running against Cory Booker. And surely, Ann Coulter’s favorite Republican, Chris Christie, who just happens to be Governor of New Jersey, will do all he can to help Lonegan win that Senate race right? AH, not so much

Because Christie plans to sit on his handswhile Steve Lonegan battles Cory Booker for Frank Lautenberg’s old Senate seat.

New Jersey governor’s allies say he will offer an endorsement, but no campaign appearances or fundraising help.

An endorsement to whom?

Please tell me he isn’t going to endorse Booker. Please?

Don’t hold your breath Wysocki.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie finds himself in an awkward situation as he mulls whether to offer any support to his party’s tea-party Republican Senate nominee, Steve Lonegan, against his Democratic friend and off-and-on political ally, Cory Booker.

Lonegan, who cruised to victory in Tuesday’s Republican primary, has a frosty relationship with Christie, dating back to his primary challenge to the governor in the 2009 campaign. Just this week, Lonegan earned a public scolding from Christie for his campaign’s racially tinged tweet attacking Booker. “This is a governor who calls it like he sees it,” said a source close to Christie. “When Steve Lonegan says something and reporters want the governor’s reaction, he’ll tell people what he thinks.”

Chris Christie, closer to saying “the Republican Party left me” every day.
