No Debate: Liberal Media CNN Misfires In Newt Gingrich Attack

The liberal media was up to its usual tricks this week. Yesterday, ABC News aired a heavily promoted interview with the ex-wife of Newt Gingrich. In the interview she claimed that Gingrich wanted an “open marriage.” It was a predictable attack from an embittered ex-spouse. There was nothing new in the charges because the former Mrs. Gingrich has made similar claims in a previous magazine interview. What was new was the network’s outrageous and deliberate attempt to manipulate election results by releasing this interview two days before the South Carolina Republican primary.  


According to news reports, some ABC News executives wanted to postpone the air date of the interview until after the South Carolina vote. Predictably, the ethical voices within the network were dismissed by those who wanted to make a crass attempt to cash in on a ratings bonanza.

Gingrich was clearly offended by the story and when asked about the issue during last night’s CNN debate, he fired back at moderator John King, saying that he was “appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that.” The debate audience responded with a standing ovation, giving Gingrich a huge boost of support. It also showed that the media’s 

From the beginning of this presidential race, the liberal media has targeted the conservative GOP candidates. Vicious attacks were launched against candidates such as Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain, forcing both of them from the race. While conservatives have to endure blistering attacks and probes into in their personal lives, President Obama is given the royal treatment, barely subjected to any tough questions.  

Today, eight years after Barack Obama burst onto the national stage, the media has still not demanded a host of his records and personal information. Not surprisingly, much of Obama’s background is still unknown. Instead of media outrage, there is silence, proving definitively that there is obvious media bias and a huge double standard.  

Regarding last night “explosive” interview with Marianne Gingrich, the media’s goal was not to educate the public, but to torpedo the campaign of Newt Gingrich. Instead of succeeding, the media has provided rocket fuel to Gingrich to continue his campaign in the weeks ahead.  

As more Americans become aware of the media’s bias, their ratings will continue to decline and, more importantly, their blatant attempts at voter manipulation will become less and less successful.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
