Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on February 9, 2014 by Allahpundit

Hey, want to watch Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin try to attack Boehner’s latest immigration stalling without attacking him so harshly that he shelves amnesty for another year? No? Me neither. But that’s what’s on the menu this morning at “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation,” respectively.

Otherwise it’s a slate of familiar natsec names plus Sochi coverage on “MTP” and “State of the Union” exploring which new “pivotal experiments” Russia has planned for the world. At last check, the one in Syria’s not going so well. The full line-up is at Politico.

And why all the networks imagine that we want to watch 4 network paid stooges try to impress us with their deep inside knowledge in a panel format is beyond me…

Government eases rule for would-be immigrants who gave ‘limited’ support to terrorists, groups: http://apne.ws/1fV7TPt

US easing immigration rule for terrorist support
By ALICIA A. CALDWELL
— Feb. 9, 2014 8:03 AM EST
**************************

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has eased the rules for would-be asylum-seekers, refugees and others who hope to come to the United States or stay here and who gave “limited” support to terrorists or terrorist groups.

The change is one of President Barack Obama’s first actions on immigration since he pledged during his State of the Union address last month to use more executive directives.

“The existing interpretation was so broad as to be unworkable,” Leahy, D-Vt., said in a statement. He said the previous rule barred applicants for reasons “that no rational person would consider.”

Republican lawmakers argued that the administration is relaxing rules designed by Congress to protect the country from terrorists.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called the change naive given today’s global terrorist threats.

“President Obama should be protecting U.S. citizens rather than taking a chance on those who are aiding and abetting terrorist activity and putting Americans at greater risk,” said Goodlatte, R-Va.

I think this qualifies as an example of the old leftist “your terrorist is my freedom fighter” meme. After all, in our government today you’re dealing with people who think we “just have it coming” for “reasons” too well-known and banal to reiterate here.

Besides, those same “enlightened” types are absolutely sure that those “limited terror supporters” would never, ever do anything to them, because they’re so “enlightened” (circular argument).

As for the rest of us- well, they don’t like us much anyway, so it’s not like they really care.

North Carolina attorney general to appeal abortion ultrasound ruling

By Marti Maguire
RALEIGH, North Carolina Fri Feb 7, 2014 6:55pm EST
***************************************************

(Reuters) – North Carolina’s Democratic attorney general said on Friday he would appeal a federal court ruling that struck down a Republican-backed state law requiring abortion providers to conduct an ultrasound and explain it to a woman before an abortion.

The move puts state Attorney General Roy Cooper, widely considered the likely Democratic challenger to Republican Governor Pat McCrory in 2016, at odds with many in his party who opposed the law passed in 2011.

Cooper said the decision to appeal was not an endorsement of the controversial law.

“This is obviously a controversial issue, but in reality it’s a legal issue,” Buckley said. “We’d rather see an appeal based on the rule of law than one based on an extreme political agenda.”

Chris Brook, legal director of the ACLU of North Carolina, said he was confident the law’s opponents would prevail.

“We think that regardless of your political position, everyone would be uncomfortable with putting words in the mouth of the physician,” said Brook.

We have a new batch of commenters to consider the crystalline perfection of a decades-long conspiracy — the DNC Media Liberal Propaganda operation known as Sunday morning political talk shows.

Our premise: the largest ideological group self-identified by Americans is conservatism. Liberalism is an epithet so embarrassing that the left invented a new term for their group stupidity — “Progressive”. And yet…if you subject yourselves to the Sunday morning circus, you will get liberalism in spades, and actual conservatives will be the smallest voice heard.

Let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul Liberal
• Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) Kook Liberal
• Rob Portman (R-Ohio) Pro-queer GOP

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) Kook-Left Liberal
• Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) RINO
• Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) RINO

“This Week” on ABC
• Mike Rogers (R-Mich) RINO
• Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) Muslim victim Liberal
• Tom Cole (R-Okla.) Conservative – First of the Day!
• David Plouffe Kook-Left Liberal

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) RINO
• Ben Cardin (D-Md.) Kook-Left Liberal
• Mike McCaul (R-Texas) Conservative-ish
• Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) Liberal

“State of the Union” on CNN
• Janet Napolitano Kook-Left Liberal

“Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV
• Jim Jones Special Non-Ideological Category: DC Pension-Sucker

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Rand Paul (R-Ky.) Libertarian Republican

“Al Punto” – Racist TV!
• Raúl Labrador Conservative!
• Xavier Becerra Kook-Left Liberal

This is not unprecedented bad, but it should be startling to most of you who have not thought of the network news propaganda campaign in this way. But wait … there’s more!

Now go back and consider that every single “moderator” of these shows is a liberal Democrat, with the exception of Chris Wallace at Fox, whom we identify as a moderate Democrat, but more importantly, a serious journalist. One journalist in the entire group…the rest ideological liberals pushing their liberal agenda.

There it is. See you next Sunday.

Is it really a Sunday without John McCain or Lindsey Graham on Press the Meat or one of the other chat factory outlets?

Hogwash! They are killing the state very, very quickly. I would suggest that it is pretty well dead right now.

Laura Ingraham kicked Georgie’s ass. I think I’m in love.

conservative hispanic on February 9, 2014 at 10:05 AM

Ingraham was awesome. She kicked the WSJ’s a**. She kicked George’s a**. She kicked Juan’s a**. And she kicked the a**es of political elites–rights and left.

In a very short time, she made so many great points.

Forgive me for asking, but I simply cannot understand how illegal immigrants–many of whom leave countries that laud arbitrary application of the law–can arrive here and demand the same of the United States.

I also find it astonishing that the Special Report panel followed a segment on Middle East terrorism coming to the US, and three tools and Chris Wallace are ganging up on Laura Ingraham on the subject of open borders. Ingraham is right that political elites–left and right–are completely insulated from the effects of illegal immigration. Indeed, does anyone believe that Boehner, who resides in a gated community (Wetherington) in West Chester, Ohio, gives a rat’s a** about the effect of illegal immigration? I’m betting that he hopes illegal immigration with help keep his periodic HOA fee down, especially the portion attributable to the lawn maintenance expenses.

Now go back and consider that every single “moderator” of these shows is a liberal Democrat, with the exception of Chris Wallace at Fox, whom we identify as a moderate Democrat, but more importantly, a serious journalist. One journalist in the entire group…the rest ideological liberals pushing their liberal agenda.

There it is. See you next Sunday.

And you can forget about the WSJ….it has gone to the dark side.

d1carter on February 9, 2014 at 12:27 PM

A little observed phenomenon in print media: when studies are done looking at the most liberal of the newspapers from a bias perspective, WSJ’s reporting side fares quite badly. The editorial page has long been the only thing remotely conservative about WSJ.

And in the commentary that you cited, we see the WSJ beating heart — the national Chamber of Commerce. So on amnesty, we lose even the editorial side. This is why I write up my whining criticism every Sunday morning — it’s hard out there for a conservative.

ncinca on February 9, 2014 at 1:14 PM

The study I have found most interesting comes from Tim Gloseclose at UCLA. His methodology is strange, relying on the citations of liberal think tanks vs conservative sources as an indicator of bias. Not too controversial to note that if you quote Media Matters or the NRA, it might give an indication of your worldview. The higher the score, the more biased toward the dominant Leftist Worldview that we so despise.

The result of this analysis applied to congress during the early 90′s, gives you the mentally retarded Los Angeles congressvermin Marlene Waters with a 99%+ score, and Tom Delay of Texas with a 4.7 … so there’s your range. But the TV and print media scores are startling. Look for WSJ:

Table 3. Results from Maximum Likelihood Estimation

News Source – ADA Score

ABC Good Morning America 56.1
ABC World News Tonight 61.0
CBS Early Show 66.6
CBS Evening News 73.7
CNN NewsNight with Aaron Brown 56.0
Fox News’ Special Report with Brit Hume 39.7
LA Times 70.0
NBC Nightly News 61.6
NBC Today Show 64.0
New York Times 73.7
Newshour with Jim Lehrer 55.8
Newsweek 66.3
NPR Morning Edition 66.3
Time Magazine 65.4
U.S. News and World Report 65.8
USA Today 63.4
Wall Street Journal 85.1
Washington Post 66.6
Washington Times 35.4

Average 62.6

The first damning number is the average score for all outlets observed – 62.6%. Well off of “playing it straight”. The only two sources observed who leaned conservative in their reporting were Brit Hume at Fox and the Washington Times. The Times and Post in DC are funny – mirror opposites at ~65% bias toward their worldview. The Post is actually worse than the Times, for all of you lefties who think the Washington Times is a right wing rag.

Ah, but the awful conservatives of the WSJ! 85% left wing. No sh1t.

Don’t mean to be an upstart, but I don’t see a date on this study. And if it’s measuring Brit Hume at Fox Special Report, well, he retired from that post at the end of 2008 and Bret Baier took over Jan 2009. So that would mean these figures would be pre-Obama. It was bad then, but it got much worse since Jan 2009, no?
