  1. Dean Obeidallah is the same racist swine who joined Melissa Hariss-Perry in making fun of Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson. A comedian? He’s about as funny as a kidney stone.

  2. Last MSNBC comedian was Martin Bashir. You would have thought the miserable outfit would have learned something after he left a bad taste in their mouth.

    • Some vintage Trump in this piece.

      After Olbermann sold his place in the Trump Tower as a publicity stunt and tribal gesture, Trump released a statement calling Keith a failed broadcaster, and went on to say that everyone in the building hated him.

  3. Hours after Dan Rather appeared on Reliable Sources, he was guest starring in an episode of The Simpsons. He was with Kent Brockman in a former news anchor support group. His dialogue was chock of full of Ratherisms (folksy metaphors). Unfortunately, the episode, written by Harry Shearer, contained two digs at Fox News. One of those had Kent admitting to watching Bill O’Reilly to see an older, stupider version of himself.

  4. T is looking for one thing and one thing only. sustainable earnings. while CNN is a loser with declining cable p/household revenue, CNN international and Español are cash cows. the pay per hookup cable game is getting tougher and meaner as cable is replaced faster than new hookups. international cable has far more remaining upside than the euro/US. one day it won’t be there and there has been no solution to news on the net revenue for the bigs or the local papers or electronic. T is trying to cover every base. since no one knows where the stratification of info/com/ is going to land on, what T has to say about CNN being independent is simply empty words. down almost 2 % more today the div yield is higher. downgrades mixed with upgrades signifies no one knows what will happen so T will continue to pay you to sit on their stock. other than that, no one knows nothing, yet if you click financial news you can see 1,000 stories on T. in fact T’s decline is named as the cause of the market rising today. yoga rhetoric.

  5. Apparently Mr Erik Wemple disapproves of my linking to his posts targeting O’Reilly using the shorthand phrase Wemple’s O’Whine. What do you all think? Does he have a point? Should I be more respectful? Less filling? Er, I mean less flippant? Does “today’s Wemple O’Whine” pretty much sum it up for you? Or is this really much ado about next to nothing?

  6. Wilmouth: MSNBC ‘comedian‘ describes Fox News as ‘too lazy to join the Klan’.
    so in addition to be being untrue it must be intentionally malicious and said solely to inflict pain on the target of defamation.
    yet experience would show this thrown out court on the grounds of ?????????????????

  7. Hillary Clinton’s entire goal in life has been to be president. Were Trump somehow to win, I seriously doubt that she will be alive in two years. I don’t think her health could handle the loss.

      • snicker. we are following the presidential trend. bad. worse. worser. putrid. oh what a time to be alive, young and full of despair.

        • there are plenty of beautiful things on earth to enjoy, or to just putter around comfortable and warm. it is sad that primarily tawdry is what we have, and if we are honest, we seem to enjoy wading in it despite our protestations and confessions.

  8. Today’s most popular links:

    2 ‘comedian’
    And the most popular link in today’s links…

  9. Premiums will go up an average of 25 percent next year under President Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirms to the Associated Press.

    Take a victory lap, President Doufus.
