Jonathan Mann of CNN International has dildos on his mind.
While talking with a climate change “expert” in Tucson, Arizona, Mann brought up about how global warming is causing entire species to go extinct.
“Now extinctions, I don’t have to tell you, have been a part of the history of the world for millenia. And man-made extinctions have even happened before. I guess we hunted the dildo into extinction. Um, but, the Dodo, rather. Forgive me, I’m having trouble with my words today.”
Dildo. Dodo. What’s the difference? [Snark]
Why am I not surprised that this clown works for low-ratings CommunistNewsNetwork?
As an example, CNN’s total ratings for Wednesday, July 17, 2013, were a dismal 430,000 for P2+ (Persons aged 2 or more), and 162,000 for the most sought-after viewer category of adults aged 25-54.
In contrast, Fox News’ ratings for the same day were 1,234,000 in P2+ (251,000 in 25-54).
Of course, CNN can always console themselves by looking to MSNBC’s even more dismal numbers of 393,000 in P2+ (124,000 in 25-54).
|By Doug Hagmann (Bio and Archives) Saturday, June 8, 2013|
Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that something seemingly ripped from the pages of a spy novel took place.
While I was in the middle of a perfectly good and well needed sleep in the very early hours of this morning, I received a message. I cannot disclose how I received this message, at least not now. The discerning reader will understand why, which, by the way, would make a very interesting story alone. The message was extremely clear and precise. I was to meet my high level DHS insider at a very specific location in Washington, DC, at a time when most ‘normal’ people, except third-shift workers are still asleep. And, I was to come alone and make certain that I was not being followed, and I was to leave any cell phone or electronic device behind.
Seriously? I thought, as I was still trying to make sense of it all. Is all this really necessary? Is this really happening? I considered waking my son to accompany me, but opted to follow the instructions to the letter. Besides, I thought, he’s not the most affable middle-of-the-night person. I left a hastily written but detailed note in my hotel room before my departure in the event something happened. I looked at the digital clock on my rental car (my personal car would never survive our long distance trip). It was 3:20 a.m.
I felt like I was part of a spy movie set in our nation’s capital. A chill rose up my spine as I waited in the dark of a chilly, misty and foggy pre-dawn morning. I was to meet with my DHS insider source at a time when most of the nation is asleep, at a place I could swear was featured in the movie All the President’s Men. No one and I mean no one knows I’m here, I thought, as I could see one of the most recognizable national landmarks in the distance.
My source appeared out of nowhere, or so it seemed, and handed me a cup of coffee with the astute observation that I looked like I needed it. So tell me, I asked impatiently, why do we have to meet at this time, at this location, and under such specific circumstances? ‘Because this might be our last meeting,’ he stated.
Maybe it was the lack of sleep, the time, the place, or the chill of the misty rain that caused my sense of foreboding. “Explain,” I asked in an almost demanding tone. So he did, without mincing words.
“If anyone thinks that what’s going on right now with all of this surveillance of American citizens is to fight some sort of foreign enemy, they’re delusional. If people think that this ‘scandal’ can’t get any worse, it will, hour by hour, day by day. This has the ability to bring down our national leadership, the administration and other senior elected officials working in collusion with this administration, both Republican and Democrats. People within the NSA, the Department of Justice, and others, they know who they are, need to come forth with the documentation of ‘policy and practice’ in their possession, disclose what they know, fight what’s going on, and just do their job. I have never seen anything like this, ever. The present administration is going after leakers, media sources, anyone and everyone who is even suspected of ‘betrayal.’ That’s what they call it, ‘betrayal.’ Can you believe the size of their cahones? This administration considers anyone telling the truth about Benghazi, the IRS, hell, you name the issue, ‘betrayal,’” he said.
“We know all this already,” I stated. He looked at me, giving me a look like I’ve never seen, and actually pushed his finger into my chest. “You don’t know jack,” he said, “this is bigger than you can imagine, bigger than anyone can imagine. This administration is collecting names of sources, whistle blowers and their families, names of media sources and everybody they talk to and have talked to, and they already have a huge list. If you’re not working for MSNBC or CNN, you’re probably on that list. If you are a website owner with a brisk readership and a conservative bent, you’re on that list. It’s a political dissident list, not an enemy threat list,” he stated.
“What’s that exactly mean, being on that list, that is,” I asked, trying to make sense of it all.
“It means that there will be censorship under the color of authority of anyone in the U.S. who is attempting to expose what’s going on in our name. It’s about controlling any damning information from reaching epidemic proportions. It’s damage control to the extreme. It’s about the upcoming censorship of the internet in the name of nationalsecurity. The plans are already in place. These latest reports about ‘spying eyes’ have turned this administration and others connected to it into something very, very dangerous. They feel cornered and threatened, and I’m hearing about some plans they have to shut down the flow of information that is implicating them of wrongdoing. Time is short,” he stated.
“How are they going to do this? How is it even possible” I asked.
“First, they intend to use the Justice Department to silence journalists like in the Rosen case, but they won’t stop there. They will use a host of national security policies, laws, letters, whatever to take out the bigger threats,” he stated.
Next, they will use some sort of excuse, an external threat, and I believe it will be a combination of the economic collapse and a Mid-East war that will begin in Syria to throttle the information that is accessible on the Internet. And you know what? People will believe it!”
Based on what I’ve seen, most of which I should not have seen, the DHS is co-ordinating efforts with other federal agencies to begin to threaten American citizens with incarceration for non-compliance. You know the old talk of color coded lists? Well, this is what they will be using. People exposing the truth about Benghazi, killing the U.S. Dollar, even those questioning Obama?s legal status and eligibility to be President are the current targets. And they’ve had five long years to get to this point. The ugly truth is that these policies and practices did not start under Obama, but long before. This is about the killing of our Constitutional Republic. The murder of our country and the stripping of our rights. While many have been preoccupied with one issue, few have seen the bigger issue. This is the ‘end game,’ for all the marbles,” he stated.
“Please,” pleaded my source, “get this information out while you can. Tell people what I’m saying, that we don’t have much time, that after the latest exposure of spying, Obama, Jarrett, Axelrod, and others, including members of Congress, have put their plans into high gear. This is about the Marxist takeover of America. This is about our country being able to survive another July 4th holiday. This is about a world war about to break out that will kill millions of people, all because of the agenda of this administration.”
“They are very dangerous and will do anything and everything to stop the onslaught of negative information that’s being reported by the main stream media. But only about one quarter of the real information is being reported. The other three quarters will be the game changer. But first, tell people what I’ve said. Let them know that more will follow but get this information out right now while the internet is still relatively free. Do it today.”
My source provided additional information, but I am abiding by his wish to get this much out. I am writing now to let people know that we are in for seriously dangerous times ahead. Deadly times. War, and censorship under the color of authority and under the pretext of of national security. It’s about to get a lot uglier. Stay tuned..
The GOP is using the term “IRS” in place of the term “n****r,” MSNBC host Martin Bashir claimed on his Wednesday show.
“Republicans are using [the IRS scandal] as their latest weapon in the war against the black man in the White House,” he suggested. ”IRS” is the new “N****r.” Bashir gave a nod to the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, to whom he attributed the subtle strategy.
With in-depth analysis like this, it’s no wonder MSNBC’s ratings have hit a 7-year low.
MSNBC Chief Phil Griffin: ‘We’re Not The Place’ For Breaking News
HuffPo: MSNBC has been under the microscope recently for its precipitous drop in the ratings over the past month. Most analysis of the decline—which saw the network fall to fourth place and its biggest hosts, such as Rachel Maddow, post record low numbers—has focused on the notion that MSNBC struggles when there is major, breaking, non-political news.
In a Monday interview with the New York Times, MSNBC president Phil Griffin essentially told viewers that they were right to go somewhere else for breaking news, since that was not what MSNBC is about. “We’re not the place for that,” he said. “Our brand is not that.”
It is quite an audacious thing to say that a cable news network is not “the place” to turn for breaking news, and MSNBC’s rivals will no doubt be eager to seize on such a remark. But Griffin’s main message to the Times’ Bill Carter was that he is not panicking. He pointed out that Fox News plunged to twelve-year lows in January, and that CNN—which rode a wave of crime and disaster coverage to beat MSNBC in May—faced similarly disastrous numbers over the past year. MSNBC’s focus and opinion-heavy formula has worked for quite a long time, and Griffin was quick to dismiss the notion that the network is facing a long-term challenge.
“Let’s not be so myopic as to think the whole world has changed,” he said.
Still, it can’t be good to have so many viewers tune out when big stories break.
We all know that the MSNBC broadcasters are liberals that fully support Obama and this administration. Yet the HuffPo commenters beg to differ:
Can’t fix stoopid.
This “hot potato” just went up on James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Youtube Channel. I have a feeling it may be doomed to a short life on Youtube. If you want to download it, see “How To Snag a Youtube Video Before it Disappears.” ~LTG
PROJECT VERITAS Describes their latest escapade in citizen journalism:
Posing as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence,” we visit the homes of journalists working for Westchester Journal News, MSNBC, and the Star-Ledger. We also visited the home of Eric Holder. None will take our signs that say “THIS HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE.”
Since these reporters and editors did not consider it a violation of the privacy and safety of others to reveal which homes have guns and which homes don’t, we went to see which of them would be willing to put a sign up publicly declaring their homes to be gun-free zones. While we didn’t find any members of the media with the strength of their convictions, we did find quite a few guns, and some good explanations for why they might be necessary….. Guns for Me, but not for Thee.
What’s the Worst Media Bias of 2012?
Here are the candidates (from NewsMax):
1. In March 2012, two Newsweek/Daily Beast staffers were discussing former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant in March. Senior writer Ramin Setoodeh (who’s gay) said, “I would never give my heart to Dick Cheney. It would freeze over.” Assignment editor Allison Yarrow chimed in: “He may be one of the most evil people in the world.”
2. In July 2012, while reporting on the Aurora, Colo., theater massacre, ABC’s Brian Ross proclaimed that James Holmes of Aurora had joined the tea party a year earlier, only to admit later that the tea party member was a different James Holmes.
3. On July 4, 2012, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said: “The land on which [the Founders] formed the Union was stolen. The hands with which they built this nation were enslaved. The women who birthed the citizens of the nation are second class. This is the imperfect fabric of our nation. . . It’s ours, all of it. The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery.”
4. In September 2012, CNN’s Piers Morgan fawned over Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map. Morgan asked Ahmadinejad, “How many times in your life have you been properly in love?” Ahmadinejad responded, “I’m in love with all humanity. I love all human beings.” To which Morgan gushed: “That might be the best answer I’ve ever heard to that question.”
Piers Morgan in an advertisement for Burger King’s new scent for men called “Flame” which smells like grilled meat. (This is not a joke)
Sound off on which of the above four is your choice for the Worst Media Bias of 2012!
Perhaps this explains why CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS are so full of crap.
Harry Belafonte is an 85-year-old black has-been singer who made his career singing cheerful calypso “Banana Boat” songs.
Yesterday, Dec. 12, 2012, Belafonte appeared on MSNBC where he was asked by black racist Al Sharpton about the wrangling going on between the occupant in the White House and Republican House Speaker John Boehner over the budget and the looming fiscal cliff.
Sharpton: “You’ve fought for decades for some of ‘entitlements’ that the right wing wants to try and balance this budget, erh, balance the deficit off of. You look at this — Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. You’ve been an activist leader through Roosevelt…to Dr. King to Mandela to Obama. How do you view this and what is the challenge for those that are on the [battle] field today?”
Belafonte: “What I think is most attractive about this whole process is watching the political maturity of the American people…. The first question is whether Barack would even be elected. And after the turnout put him emphatically in the presidency, it’s interesting to watch his second term. Everybody really didn’t know what the game would be. But the American people in their maturity declared themselves fully, ‘We want what Barack Obama is talking about. We want the country going in that direction.”
Then, beginning at the 1:07 mark, Belafonte continues: “And what fascinates me is that in the face of millions of Americans expressing their desire, the whole political establishment defining its game, that there should be lingering infestation of really corrupt people who still try to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama. I don’t know what more they want.”
Beginning at the 1:45 mark, Belafonte then says: “The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and throw these guys in jail.”
To which Al Sharpton chuckles “He he!”
You saw and heard it for yourself.
We have reached the low point in American politics where two black wealthy faux-socialists — Belafonte with a net worth of $28 million; Al Sharpton, a Baptist minister who mysteriously managed to accumulate a net worth of $5 million — openly call for a president (who was “supposedly” elected by 62,615,406 voters to a second term) to throw anyone who disagrees with him in jail, thereby junking every right guaranteed to the American people by the United States Constitution.
Harry Belafonte, you piece of shit. On November 6th, 59,142,004 Americans did NOT vote for your dictator idol. You don’t have enough jails and FEMA camps to jail all 59 millions 142 thousands of us!
