  CNN’s 5-Minute Infomercial for Left-Wing Hack Max Blumenthal
“And Blumenthal, also, for the record, really rejects that radical left-wing label. He says, you know what, a lot of people in America agree with him. And Rick, it's also relevant to us to keep in mind there have been a lot of Internet videos on this whole argument over Iraq, and sometimes you've got people making fun of anti-war protesters as well.”
--Correspondent Josh Levs on left-wing short filmmaker Max Blumenthal, Newsroom, CNN, July 30, 2007.

  Bush Against Healthy Kids?
Moderator Gwen Ifill: "The disagreement is over the federally funded State Children’s Health Insurance Program. Congress would like to double the number of children covered. The administration says that would simply cost too much. So is this all going to come to a head in a presidential veto, David?"
Washington Post’s David Broder: "Well, the President has threatened the veto, and everybody I’ve talked to in the administration this past week says take that threat seriously. He’s on possibly the worst possible domestic issue to which to threaten the veto. I mean, who can be against providing health insurance for kids?"
— PBS’s Washington Week, July 27, 2007.

  MRC's Bozell on Hannity & Colmes About Magazine's Derogatory Soldier Tales
“The ‘New Republic’ is in trouble again. Here you’ve got a reporter they say they know who he is ‘with near certainty.’ Sean, that’s like saying you’re almost pregnant. You either are or you’re not certain of who your reporter is. If they aren’t certain of who he is, or that he’s even a soldier, how in the world can they confirm his stories? They’re now saying that they’re going to check into his stories to do some fact checking. Ought they not to have done that before they put him on there? You know, how many times do we have to go through this Sean? How many times do I have to do your show where one time after another, after another, we find the media getting caught with their pants down in Iraq? whether it was the ‘New York Times’ with doctored pictures, whether it was the National Guard story, whether it was Haditha, whether it was last year with the war between Palestine and Israel, whether there were doctored pictures on CNN, how many times are we going to catch them doing this?”
--MRC President Brent Bozell on New Republic’s “Baghdad Diarist” Scandal, Hannity & Colmes, FNC, July 24, 2007.

  Next Step: War Crimes Trials
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: "Russ Feingold wants to censure the President, the Vice President..."
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore:
"Good idea....Personally I’d like to see a perp walk coming out of the West Wing of the White House."
Matthews:
"Do you think they’re guilty of war crimes?"
Moore:
"Absolutely....I think we need a trial, in this country, where Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bush would be brought up on charges for causing the deaths of so many people...."
Matthews:
"It’s interesting if you go back....the Nuremberg Trials weren’t about the genocide, it was about waging an aggressive war. I love reading some of that language. It’s interesting."
— MSNBC’s Hardball, July 23, 2007.

  As Expected, CNN's YouTube Debate Skews Leftward
"Hello, America. Hello, presidential candidates. This is Will from Boston, Massachusetts. And I hope, you know, they put this question on. It's a question in the back of everybody's head, you know, some people further back than others, collecting cob webs, but is African-Americans ever going to get reparations for slavery? I know y'all gonna run around this question, dipping and dodging, so let's see how far y'all can get."

  CNN/You Tube Preview Questions from the Left on Health, Religion
"I'm worried about the amount of time given to evangelical concerns, while secular voters are more or less getting snubbed. Am I wrong in fearing a Democratic administration that may pay lip service to be extremely religious as much as the current one?"
--
YouTube User Stephen Marsh of Thousand Oaks, California, CNN, July 18, 2007.

  Terror Threat = Smoke & Mirrors
"The fact that al Qaeda has reorganized itself through the war in Iraq that America handed it on a silver platter...is old news. We saw that happen back in 2004.....We must be aware of the spin — the smoke and mirrors from the administration, trying to reshape the message on Iraq being specifically about al Qaeda, America’s lingering, most familiar fear, trying to invoke some Pavlovian response from the American public, to fear them into again supporting the war. That doesn’t quite hold water."
— Correspondent Michael Ware The Situation Room, CNN, July 17, 2007.

  CNN/YouTube Debate Questions Feature Many More Liberal Videos
Kiran Chetry: “Environment also something that’s big. As we talked about, this is a younger demographic. In poll after poll has shown that younger people view environmental concerns and global warming as a major problem, so let’s listen to this YouTube question from Barbara Gonzales"
Barbara Gonzales:
“Nothing will have a greater impact on Asa’s future and the future of all kids than the world’s ability to deal with global warming...What are you proposing to do that is bold and why should I put Asa’s future in your hands?”

  Man Snoozes During John Edwards's ABC Town Hall...Then Vanishes
Did Good Morning America physically remove a man who appeared to be dozing off during Democratic Senator John Edward's "town hall" meeting on Monday? Early in the 7am hour, the man appeared to be sleeping, or at least dozing, while Edwards discussed his plan for Iraq. Around 7:11, the individual, who was seated to the back and right of Edwards, mysteriously disappeared.
-- Good Morning America, ABC, July 16, 2007.

  PBS’s Push for Impeachment
"When September comes, you can count on more appeals for delay or excuses. That’s the formula for perpetual war — what our Founders most feared, because it would turn our Constitution on its head, throwing off the checks and balances so crucial to liberty, and leaving all power in an imperial executive....Impeachment hearings are one way to go....In the meantime, those of us in public television have an obligation to make sure viewers like you stay in the loop....When we broadcast teach-ins on the Vietnam War, and the Watergate hearings during the trial of Richard Nixon, it was a real public service — the reason PBS was created. We should keep Iraq in prime time every week — the fighting and dying, the suffering, the debate, the politics, the extraordinary costs. It’s months until September. This war is killing us now, body and soul."
— Host Bill Moyers, Bill Moyers Journal, PBS, July 13, 2007.

  Name-Calling Cafferty Criticizes Boehner’s ‘Wimp’ Comment on CNN
“The debate over the Iraq war has degenerated to name-calling now among the not so distinguished members of our Congress. House Minority Leader John Boehner referred to Senate Republicans who favor a change of course in Iraq as ‘wimps.’ This is the same John Boehner you may recall who once asked if the House be adjourned so he could go to a football game. These so-called ‘wimps’ that Boehner refers to include some distinguished members of the U.S. Senate, like Pete Domenici, Richard Lugar and George Voinovich. They’ve all had enough of President Bush’s war and they want to start reducing the military’s role in Iraq. As for the ‘wimp’ comment, House Republican sources tell ‘The Hill’ newspaper Boehner and Minority Whip Roy Blunt are simply calling for solidarity among party members so they distinguish themselves from their Senate colleagues.”
-- CNN’s Jack Cafferty, The Situation Room, CNN, July 12, 2007.

  ABC's Sawyer: "Everybody Laughed" At Notion Journalists Are Truthful and Fair
"You know, I wanted to sit on a jury once and I was taken off the jury. And the judge said to me, 'Can, you know, can you tell the truth and be fair?' And I said, 'That's what journalists do.' And everybody in the courtroom laughed. It was the most hurtful moment I think I've ever had."
-- ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Good Morning America, ABC, July 12, 2007.

  MRC's Bozell on Hannity & Colmes Re Blogger Advocating Killing Rush; Couric's Slap
“Two weeks ago this very time there was this statement made my Ann Coulter that was so vilely taken out of context and chopped up so as to make it sound, appear she was advocating the assassination of John Edwards. That was news everywhere with appearances everywhere by John Edwards’ wife to denounce what Ann Coulter had not said to begin with. Now you have a person saying, unequivocally, someone on the left, unequivocally, saying he wants to see Rush Limbaugh killed. He wants to see him killed. He wants to see him dead. And there’s been utter silence on this. It tells you two things. One is the nature of the radical left and how emboldened it feels. And, secondly, the sheer hypocrisy of the press that whenever a conservative does anything that they think is the slightest bit incorrect, get the person fired, have them denounced, have them ostracized. But a liberal can advocate the death of a conservative and that’s okay.”
--MRC President Brent Bozell, Hannity & Colmes, FNC, July 9, 2007.

NBC’s Ann Curry: "Live Earth involves 130 countries, 7 continents, 2 billion viewers, dozens of bands and it’s all in a day’s work for this man, who’s worked tirelessly to raise the issue of global warming, the Chairman of the Alliance for Climate Protection, Al Gore. Al, good evening. You know, you’ve been pouring yourself into this issue, I mean, I gotta tell you, you’ve exhausted yourself....Nevertheless you keep pushing and actually the question is, what constitutes success here?"
Former Vice President Al Gore: "...We are now prepared to announce formally that this is now the largest global entertainment event in all of history."
Curry: "Whoa!...Congratulations....A lot of people want me to ask you tonight if you’re running for President.... Would you answer the call?...Have you ruled it out?...Have fun tonight. And I think you are."
Gore: "Thank you very much. Thanks for what NBC has been doing."
Curry: "Alright, thanks a lot."

  "Greatest Crime of This Century"
"Good evening. A President who lied us into a war and, in so doing, needlessly killed 3,584 of our family and friends and neighbors; a President whose administration initially tried to destroy the first man to nail that lie; a President whose henchmen then ruined the career of the intelligence asset that was his wife when intelligence assets were never more essential to the viability of the Republic; a President like that has tonight freed from the prospect of prison the only man ever to come to trial for one of the component felonies in what may be the greatest crime of this young century."
— Keith Olbermann opening MSNBC’s Countdown, July 2, 2007.
