Roger Ailes Re-hired Palin to Piss off Liberals who want her dead

It Appears Roger Ailes doesn’t mind all the Sarah Palin hate out there, in fact he thrives on it.  Seems that Ailes knows how to create buzz and since liberals love to hate Sarah Palin, he figures it will put more eyes on her segments. Remember in media, say what you want, just spell the name correctly. Why bring back Sarah Palin just a few months after not renewing her [...]

Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC Panel Mocks Mitt Romney’s Black Grandson

On Sunday’s Melissa Harris-Perry show, the eponymous host led a panel of entertainers in a rundown of the “photos of the year,” which somehow included a Romney family picture that “a lot of people had emotions about,” according to MHP. The setup seemed to leave room for unlimited comic potential, but the panel immediately honed in on the race of Kieran Romney, adopted grandson of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt [...]

Dynasty Ducks Are Back Quacking

This is one of those rare entertainment wars where a Conservative or even a Christian one has scored a victory against a very aggressive and screeching Politically Correct culture. The latest brouhaha over Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson’s views on homosexuality did not go down well with GBLT and GLAAD organizations. In fact, they have managed to scare the living daylights out of everyone an anyone who dare utter a single [...]

Greenwald says he Defends Snowden like MSNBC Defends Obama – 24/7

I think the point is not so much about MSNBC and what happens here,” Welker said in defense of her employer, “but more that sometimes when you talk about Edward Snowden you do defend him, and some people wonder if that crosses a line.” “Sure, I do defend him just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day.” When Welker [...]

Fox News ‘Santa is White’ Racial Agitation

I hear snide references to Fox News, about their ginned-up stories and feigned outrage. It’s frequently overstated (and frequently not), but this one got to me.  Aisha Harris writes a culture blog on Slate, has a couple thousand Twitter-followers, and gets plucked from obscurity to be used as an example of how someone thinks that having a white Santa is “racist”. Now, I had not been aware of this as [...]
