Media ‘Carrying Water’ for Democrat Congress

WARNING: To ensure you realize you’re not in the middle of a bad dream, pinch yourself before watching the video below.

Every thinking American knows the 111th Congress was, perhaps, the worst — definitely not the “most productive” — Congress in this nation’s history as news anchors nationwide might have us believe. The new Harris Interactive poll results I published this morning seem to prove that.

Now, everyone who watches the video above needs to make an effort to ensure everyone they know watches it prior to the 2012 election cycle.  Only then can we be certain — I know, it’s wishful thinking — that every American voter truly understands what media bias is.

Finally, News Outlets Report Ukrainian ‘Super Flu’

BMW Facebook on Ukraine Flu 11-9-09

Eight days ago, I posted a link on my Facebook wall to a Zero Hedge piece about a “super flu” 10 times more lethal than Swine Flu that had, at that time, affected nearly a million people in Ukraine. And I asked where the mainstream media was in its coverage — or lack thereof — of this news.

Today, finally, one member of the mainstream media — albeit member of the British press via Drudge — is reporting on it.  The Daily Express reports this in its lead paragraph:

A cocktail of three flu viruses are reported to have mutated into a single pneumonic plague, which it is believed may be far more dangerous than swine flu. The death toll has reached 189 and more than 1 million people have been infected, most of them in the nine regions of Western Ukraine.

Sounds bad.  Very bad.  Stay tuned!

Rerun Alert: Uncle Jay Explains ‘Socialism’ Again

Rather than air a new episode this Labor Day Weekend, Uncle Jay opted to share a controversial rerun of Uncle Jay Explains the News that aired for the first time April 13.  I think it’s appropriate, especially in light of the fact that his word of the day is “Socialism.”  Americans really need to bone up on their understanding of the difference between capitalism, socialism and communism.  If you don’t know the difference, watch the video below.  Enjoy!

‘Barack Uhhbama’ Fails to Impress UK Journalist

The introduction reads as follows:

Barack Obama, the World’s Greatest Orator (all news organisations), didn’t exactly cover himself in glory when the BBC’s political editor Nick Robinson asked him a question about who was to blame for the financial crisis. Normally word perfect, Obama ummed, ahed and waffled for the best part of two and a half minutes. Here, John Crace decodes what he was really thinking …

Ahmadinejad ‘Milks’ Homemade Hostage Crisis

An Associated Press report out of Tehran today leads this blogger to believe Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is going to milk this homemade hostage crisis for all it’s worth, virtually terrorizing Britons and their Western Allies for weeks to come. The substance of the report appears below:

Iran’s ambassador to Russia renewed a threat Iranian officials made earlier this week, saying 15 British sailors held by Iran could be tried for violating international law, Iran’s state news agency IRNA reported Saturday.

Word to the wise: When you sail into or near Iranian waters, beware of the fish…
