Media Bias: Media Bias of all kinds.

Rubio Did H2O, Obama Did Blow

Feb 13, 2013 5:35 PM PT

It's funny how the media has been all abuzz about Florida Senator Marco Rubio's "Great Gulp Gaffe," today. As Breitbart News' Editor-At-Large, Ben Shapiro points out, CNN ("Jokingly") asks if Rubio taking a sip of water during his State of the Union response was a career ender. 

I don't recall the press asking the same questions or cracking jokes about President Obama when it was revealed that he smoked weed. In fact, when it was discovered that President Obama did cocaine in college, when he could "afford it," ABC News said "Obama's Cocaine Confessional Won't 'Blow' His Chances."

Occupy Water

In response to CNN: Water Carriers:

Although I lean toward ignoring those making fun of Rubio to help end the discussion, Teri Christoph of Smart Girl Politics had a funny suggestion on Twitter: Why don't we all have avatars of us drinking water? #solidarity

CNN's (aka MSNBC White's) Game...

Feb 13, 2013 4:05 PM PT that they are, supposedly, "just reporting what's being said on social media."

That is, the claim goes, they're neutrally reporting what's going on.  This is going on on social media; ergo, MSNBC White is neutral is reporting it.

"Good Hate" Goes Unnoticed in Sweden, Just as it Does Here

Feb 13, 2013 1:41 PM PT

A Swedish TV special recently examined threats directed at high profile women, including journalists, actors, authors, etc. The special made the argument that the problem was so severe it led to self-censorship by those who decided voicing their opinion just wasn't worth the hassle and the threats.

An article written by the editor of a left-wing Swedish paper backs this up with plenty of ugly detail. After moving out of her home because of a number of death threats after she wrote about right wing websites, she receives a text from an unknown number in the middle of the night, "Seriously sweetheart, when was the last time you got yourself off?" That's tame compared to the texts she receives later.

An App Fit for a King

Feb 13, 2013 9:54 AM PT

A friend sent me a link to this Yahoo News article ostensibly praising the White House app. Yes, apparently there is an app that gets all the media content being produced by the White House. As the review goes on author Virginia Heffernan seems to lose some of her objectivity:

If you want the facts about the president’s plans, the White House app suggests, listen to the president’s own guys.

One more thought about Al Jazeera America...

Feb 12, 2013 12:06 PM PT

At some point, Al Jazeera America is going to hire some on-air talent, right?  I think they're supposed to launch sometime this summer.  They'll probably have a bit of trouble securing commentators - especially now - but if they throw around enough of the sweet, sweet oil money they stuffed in Al Gore's pocket, they'll get somebody.

If those hires include liberal stars, are we going to hear about how they're just desperate to stay relevant?  Come to think of it, is Al Gore desperate to stay relevant?  (Or just content to be irrelevant and filthy rich?)
