In Defense of Tommy Christopher

Tuesday, Mediaite White House correspondent Tommy Christopher made headlines for asking a highly unorthodox question of White House Spokesman Jay Carney. My friend and colleague Ben Shapiro hammered him as a "numbskull" for asking the "single worst question ever." I disagree. I'm glad he asked it. I wish more White House correspondents behaved this way. Oct 16, 2013 3:40 AM PT

Russert: Media Biased Against People of Faith

“You’re sort of tagged with this label of being puritanical and not understanding of others and different viewpoints and I think that’s kind of lazy number one and I think it’s just something that just feeds the snickering masses in that regard.” Oct 15, 2013 4:59 AM PT

Coulter Criticizes Liz Cheney, GOP 'Shysters' Responsible For Election Losses

Ann Coulter held nothing back on Hannity Monday night going after "shysters" who are taking advantage of the Republican Party. Coulter's broader point was that for the Republican Party to achieve anything, they need to have majorities in the House and the Senate. The recent spate of primaries against reliable Republican Senators have made it more difficult for the GOP to gain a majority. Oct 15, 2013 3:52 AM PT

NBC News' Chuck Todd Penning Obama Tome

Based on this description it appears the narrative will paint a picture of Obama as a "Washington outsider" whose altruistic agenda got derailed by the Washington establishment and special interests. Certainly a narrative that serves the president's attempts to write a spin on his legacy that will certainly be objectively seen as a failure to live up to his campaign's promise (and promises) from 2008.

White House War On Fox News Continues

Friday things really came to a boil as Carney openly snubbed Henry during the regular daily briefing. Carney, as is customary, took questions from the major networks seated in the front row.

CBS New York Features Union Boss As Typical Furloughed Worker

It turns out Mr. Sacker has a media operation any Kardashian would envy. Not only was he the poster child or government employee furloughs for the AP and NPR, he also gave an interview with New York's CBS affiliate. Again, Mr. Sacker's partisan affiliation with the government employee union was not disclosed by CBS. Oct 2, 2013 1:02 AM PT

Shutdown Propaganda: AP's Furloughed 'EPA Worker' Really Gov't Union Boss

It appears the Associated Press has either been duped by a partisan government union big-wig pretending to be a beleaguered government employee facing furlough due to a government shutdown, or they knew he was an activist and withheld the information from their readers. Oct 1, 2013 1:07 PM PT

Lib Talker: GOP 'Suicide Bombers' 'Trying To Blow Your Children Up'

NY Daily News: GOP 'House Of Turds'

The New York Daily News is trying to "Newt Gingrich" Speaker of the House John Boehner by "blaming" him and the Republican majority in the House for the government shutdown.
