An ad unveiled today by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is being denounced by Greta Van Susteren, who says it selectively edited her interview with Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to make it appear the Benghazi investigation is politically motivated.
With the Confederate flag now banned in virtually any context, is it possible to write about the Civil War without facing an immediate ban on sales?
As he considers the future of his popular series of children’s books, Rush Limbaugh yesterday pondered whether key historical events could even be covered without censorship from Amazon, Walmart and other corporations who now have policies against depictions of the Stars and Bars. Read all »
And why exactly is the president involved with a giveaway promotion, anyway?
Yet that’s exactly what @BarackObama was doing this afternoon, talking up the Aloha State’s “progressive” change and inviting those interested to enter the contest / fundraising mailing list-builder to provide their personal information. Read all »
Trump-bashers everywhere are gloating over news NBC is parting ways with The Donald, but is this all that surprising?
Though the network cites his recent comments on “immigrants” as reason to sever ties, the presidential run alone would have been enough to justify ending its business relationship. Associating in such a way with a declared candidate creates a conflict of interest for any media outlet, especially a national news network.
So why add the ideological angle, is this just another move to pander to political correctness? Will it result in a backlash? Read all »
After enacting a complete ban on Confederate-themed merchandise, Walmart apparently has no problem with the flag of ISIS, the Islamic terror state that regularly beheads innocent people.
When Chuck Netzhammer of Slidell, Louisiana found his request for a Confederate-themed cake denied by the mega-chain, he returned to his local store with the ISIS image, which they happily created for him.
Netzhammer has documentation and receipts as evidence of the sequence of events and the company is feigning ignorance, claiming local bakery workers weren’t familiar with the flag. He made this clip to show the cake:
Walmart has since apologized.
Remember, folks: Dukes of Hazzard bad, jihad good!
A Fox Business Channel reporter who questioned a stock exchange’s political activism was labeled a “hater” in a tweet from its official Twitter account yesterday that also featured an image of a skunk.
Though he personally supports gay marriage, longtime senior correspondent and author Charles Gasparino asked NASDAQ why it had become so seemingly political in the wake of the US Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in favor of it. The exchange’s official Twitter account had posted several messages in support of the decision in addition to a Vine clip showing a rainbow flag above the electronic NASDAQ logo on Times Square.
Later, NASDAQ deleted nearly all of its tweets referencing Gasparino, who regularly covers its corporate developments as part of his duties. But the Media Equalizer was able to obtain a screenshot showing the skunk. Read all »
Just how worried is Hillary Clinton over the suddenly-surging Bernie Sanders? Concerned enough that key supporters are taking to MSNBC to attack the Vermont senator.
But will it work, or backfire? Fellow US Senator Claire McCaskill, a Clinton supporter, delivered a scathing assessment of her colleague during today’s Morning Joe, repeatedly calling Sanders “a socialist” and accusing the media of giving him “a pass”.
As co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out, however, most of Bernie’s supporters already know he’s a socialist and are quite happy about it.
Did Senator McCaskill consider whether calling attention to that on MSNBC would actually hurt Sanders, or unintentionally help his campaign? Could this even boost his fundraising efforts?
Does Greg Gutfeld owe Rush Limbaugh an apology? The Fox News Channel host blasted the radio host yesterday over the latter’s assertion the American flag will be the next target after all traces of the Confederate version have been scrubbed from our society.
During The Five yesterday, Gutfeld was particularly critical, accusing Limbaugh of utilizing a “fear tactic” not unlike the way the left scares its voters into believing contraception will be taken away if their candidates fail to win an election: Read all »
