NBC duct tape

NBC’s holiday tip: duct tape escape!

Around the slow holiday period, tips for dealing with traffic, airports, rude family and turkey fiascoes make up a good percentage of network news programming.

But someone at NBC must be bored or devious, because courtesy of Dateline, we’ve been presented with this “news you can use”: how to escape your captor’s duct tape!

So if cousin Bob really is the bastard you’d always suspected and ties you up in the basement after dinner, they’ve got you covered: Read all »

Ferguson 2

Men in PRESS jackets ‘disgusted’ over decision

If you thought this morning’s Ferguson coverage couldn’t get any weirder, we’ve got something that will kick it up a notch: two media personnel openly siding with protesters!

Talk about bias in the media!

Wearing “PRESS” jackets, the unidentified individuals are told by correspondent Charlie LeDuff that cameras are rolling, yet spout off anyway about their disgust with the grand jury’s decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson on state charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

LeDuff apparently provides coverage to individual Fox affiliates around the country. Read all »

Harrigan Steve Fox

FOX-fire: reporter, crew duck Ferguson shots

Here’s one reporter who deserves hazard pay added to his next check!

Earlier this evening, Fox News Channel’s Steve Harrigan was attacked by a nut in a Guy Fawkes mask as a fresh wave of Ferguson riots began. According to Deadline Hollywood, his camera was knocked to the ground as F-bombs flew. Read all »

Ferguson Nov 14 -1

MSNBC OUTRAGED (!) over a few white racists

The (mostly white) liberals at MSNBC have found a clever way to shift some attention away from riots and looting this evening (above image) in Ferguson, MO: devote major coverage to a few (mostly white) racists on Twitter!

Since there’s no risk (?!?!) in giving a handful of knuckleheads way more publicity than they ever could have imagined, why not spread their otherwise-obscure racism all over the place? It provides an “everybody’s doing it” (acting stupid) angle that well-serves NBC’s agenda. Read all »

Perino Dana 3

Dana Perino: wandering off the reservation?

When talking heads suddenly start speaking a new language, it’s time to ask what’s really going on.

And that’s precisely the head-scratching situation we find ourselves in with Dana Perino, co-host of The Five on the Fox News Channel. Though normally viewed as reliably conservative, two recent assertions have the former Bush Administration press secretary herself admitting she’s an “outlier”.

The first oddity came on November 17, when Perino made an excuse for Obama’s feigned ignorance of loose cannon ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber (background on the Gruber scandal here from a left-wing source!), going further than even the president’s own apologists: Read all »

Perez Rosie The View

Cosby allegations spark odd media divisions

What kind of issue might have Whoopi Goldberg and Rush Limbaugh in agreement, while two Rosies, O’Donnell and Perez, are absolutely at odds?

It’s the Cosby rape allegations, of course: should we really try and convict the comedian-actor via a media firestorm? While no one can say for sure he’s innocent, the same goes for guilt- there’s no definitive proof at this time.

Isn’t there a difference between actually supporting Cosby (not many in this camp) and believing that guilt should be determined in court, not by Twitter? Or have emotions taken over? Read all »

Lemon Don -Bill-Cosby-CNN

Did CNNer make Rush Blush?

What happens when a newsworthy story is so cringeworthy, it must be avoided altogether?

It might make Rush blush (incidently, we’re not sure if anyone has ever used those two words in a rhyme), a relatively rare occurrence for a man who has been around the block. Read all »

Santelli Rick 4

Santelli: ‘I feel like I’m in a cartoon here!’

Somehow, after all this time, Rick Santelli still has a home at CNBC.

An iron-clad contract? Barnyard pics of NBC execs? We don’t know, but that doesn’t mean Santelli gets a whole lot of airtime despite his outsized public recognition. In any debate setting, he’s usually outnumbered five-to-one or more by Obama/Yellen suck-ups. Read all »

Cosby Bill 1969 album

Fox vs Fox fans over Cosby?

Does a 1969 comedy recording prove Bill Cosby’s a rapist?

That’s what a story picked up by Fox News seems to be suggesting, leading to criticism from from an atypical place: conservatives who are otherwise network fans.

Though the piece originated at Entertainment Tonight, Fox 411 picked it up in its entirety. The Washington Post has their own story, which points to New York’s Village Voice as making this “discovery”. That appears to be the origin of this dubious development. Read all »

Jerusalem synagogue attacks IBTimes

CNN’s latest flub: is it really an accident?

Cue James Earl Jones: this is DNN!

The Dummy News Network (after a nonstop series of recent flubs, do they still deserve to go by their real name?) is at it again, this time blatantly mischaracterizing the target of today’s sickening terror attack in Jerusalem.

We could’ve sworn it was a SYNAGOGUE that was attacked in cold blood, not a MOSQUE. We’re pretty sure there’s a difference, DNN! Read all »
