  1. Ruffalo is another example of a self-righteous leftist wanting to force his demands on the rest of the world.

  2. Why does the NYT rightfully show concern about news and artistic content being controlled by mercenary advertisers, but then feign idiocy over the difference between verbal political attacks and the outright blood and body parts portrayal of assassinating Trump?

    Can they not walk and chew gum at the same time?

  3. in Irony today there this:

    Richard W.‏ @IceManNYR
    “Would be nice if things could stay more civil but I’m sure soon enough he’ll be back on Twitter rage tweeting as he watches Fox News.”

    Says the racist who rage tweets all day while watching Fox News.

  4. You know if you are going to have Mark Kelly Gabby Gifford’s husband on could you at least get his rank right? Its not that darn hard to do CNN its right on the screen for crying out loud.

    and he did it twice….Trapper is so bad sometimes.


  5. The Alexander shooter started off one of his numerous letters to the editor

    “One of my favorite TV shows is “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC.”

    I don’t expect to hear much about this, but imagine if this loser was a conservative and mentioned a Fox News host. There would be firing demands, boycotts, etc.

    • Oh, my gosh, yes.

      I wish I could remember the incident, but there was someone arrested for going over the WH fence …something like that…who had a copy of Sarah Palin’s book and the Dems and the media made much ado with blaming her for this guy’s mentality.

      This was in addition to blaming her and conservatives in general for Loughner.

      They’ve done the same thing to O’Reilly and Hannity when any nefarious person seems to have been a watcher of their programs.

      Imagine having the media do this to you.

      It’s hideously unfair and anti-intellectual. These political partisans and their media allies who move their memes, seem better-suited for life in the era of witch trials, yet they claim to be our superiors in every way. Every day they tell us that they are. Yet they’re so unfair and ill-intentioned that they literally bring tears to your eyes.

      It’s all well and good for Rep. Pelosi to compliment
      Speaker Ryan on his moving comments after the shootings yesterday. It was wonderful for her to wish POTUS success. However, that comes easier when people are behaving toward you and yours in a gracious way that certainly has not been how things went down when all Republicans were being ideologically and spiritually linked to some evil doer on the right.

      I think we all know how differently the partisan and media appetite and intensity for this hideous story would be had it been democrats at that ball park. Volume 20. Def Con Alpha. Code Red. An endless strafing of conservatives all and sundry while oozing more sanctimony than Carrie’s mother in that Sephen King novel.

      Rachel Madow need not fear their finger-pointing. Sen. Sanders will not be endlessly accused of having Hodgkinson as his spirit animal.

      I resent them. I resent the hell out of them.

  6. Fox News has abandoned its famous “Fair and Balanced” slogan, and has adopted “Lean Forward” at the request of the son James Murdoch.

  7. The whole point of the appointment of an independent counsel: come up with something to charge the president for lying or obstructing the original phony-baloney investigation as cause to impeach him. Didn’t take long at all.

  8. Today’s most popular links:
    5 Panicked meetings
    4 Fox News retires
    3 white conservatives
    2 Congressional run
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 The 13 most-watched Fox News programs since Tucker replaced Mr Bill.

  9. Trump supporters to protest in front of CNN Atlanta headquarters Saturday about:
    a) too few black reporters
    b) too many gay reporters
    c) too many awards for Jake Tapper
    d) too much fake news
