  1. ‘The preponderance of editors, journalists, pundits and bookers, on the other hand, still coddle Democrats. They may do it on purpose or unconsciously, but it’s destroying their credibility. Because as David Burge once noted, “Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.”’

    • A lot of people were voicing the obvious truth that there are varying degrees of affronts in these cases.

      That should go without saying, but saying it about the wrong people can certainly piss off folks.

      The only reason Mika voices the obvious now is that her buddy got outed.

  2. Re: “MSNBC fires Joan Walsh”: She’ll be fired as long as Sam Seder. There’s too much ideological backlash, as there was with Seder. Then, the leftists will claim another victory.

  3. Thomas the Tank engine kind of creeps me out , the Cars movies have the same feeling but I don’t think are fascists that’s a stretch

  4. Love that episode of That Girl , and the kid was the voice of Linus in 5 Peanuts specials too , including the Christmas one.

    • Where on one night Walsh can opine on how it’s unreasonable to caution provocatively dressed women about unwelcomed salacious attention.

      Then the next night she can browbeat Ivanka Trump over sitting in for her father during a diplomatic mission while wearing a ‘too feminine’ ladylike pink dress with bows on the sleeves.

    • You’ll have to tell me. Joan blocked me on Twitter. I don’t even remember why.. Must have been a misunderstanding.

      • She’s going to CNN
        tweet said :
        ” I am overwhelmed by the support I’ve received today from all of you. And I’m thrilled to tell you I’ll be heading to @CNN in the new year. Thanks to everyone who made this happen. A Christmas miracle. “

        • It’s too bad there isn’t a blog that posts links to items like this, so all people have to do is check out the day’s links and click on the one about CNN hiring Joan Walsh. Somebody ought to look into creating a site like that. 😉

  5. Nice to see Sara Carter being a new FOX News Contributor

    When I read the news that she left Circa News, I had a feeling FOX would hire her

  6. Trump is like a dictator toward the media, but mind your hysterical reactions to him, guys.

    Cupp is perfect for CNN.

    • A dictator would jail or assassinate those who would dare cross him. That’s Putin’s style. Trump likes to goad the media into making fools of themselves, that’s his style. They never fail to take the bait.

      • Like the Tweet from him today mentioned on MEDIABUZZ with a picture showing casually the bottom of his shoe with CNN stuck on it.
