Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

CBS: It’s outrageous that a person who hasn’t declared her intentions to run for prez is ignoring us and endangering our reporters!

This was so obviously absurd that I had to wonder if this piece was another CBS forgery.  Nope, it looks real:

Since Palin and her team won’t share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin’s bus. This has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles – including a massive CNN bus – all trying to make sure they don’t lose sight of the Palin bus.

It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.

“I just hope to God that one of these young producers with a camera whose bosses are making them follow Sarah Palin as a potential Republican candidate don’t get in a car crash, because this is dangerous,” he said.

Corsaro asked a member of Palin’s team if he thought it was dangerous to have reporters forced to chase her from stop to stop. “You’re the ones that are trailing us,” he replied.

Why, the nerve of Palin!  How dare she not tell the MSM where she’s going!  I mean, it’s newsworthy that a woman who hasn’t made any announcements or anything is…taking a road trip?  Seriously, that passes for news?

As for the whining that following her convoy could be dangerous, I’ve got an idea.  It’s a crazy one, granted, but hear me out on this:

Stop following the convoy!

Memo (unforged) to CBS: I just saved some lives at your organization with that piece of advice.  You’re welcome.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

CNN: Our poll shows that more Americans support a Medicare plan that doesn’t exist

CNN poll:

A CNN poll of 1,007 adult Americans asks: “From everything you have heard or read about the Republicans’ plan to change Medicare so far, do you favor or oppose it?”

The results: “58 percent of the public opposes the Republican plan on Medicare, with 35 percent saying they support the proposal.”

Interesting.  As Tina Korbe points out:

Whoever crafted the CNN poll must not have minded misleading voters with questions that offered no real specifics. But Let Freedom Ring and the College Republican National Committee refuse to let President Obama — or CNN — off the hook.

“How can CNN possibly poll whether Americans prefer Obama’s or Ryan’s approach to Medicare when the president doesn’t have an approach?” said Alex Cortes, 22-year-old executive director of Let Freedom Ring. “Putting aside his moral obligation to save the program for our generation, he should present a plan at the very least so CNN can conduct an honest poll.”

At the very, very least.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Weiner finally calls cops…but on reporter wanting to ask him questions

Law enforcement wasn’t called to report the alleged “hacking” of his Twitter account.  No, he called the cops for a more egregious offense:

So CBS 2 political reporter Marcia Kramer decided to go to his office on Capitol Hill to try to get you some answers.

You’ll never believe what happened.

Kramer tried to get an interview with the six-term New York Democrat and as a result had the cops called on her.

Kramer walked in to Weiner’s office, announced herself as being from CBS 2 in New York City and said she’d like to see the congressman. Those few words created quite the stir. Doors slammed and people pretended she wasn’t there.

Finally, brave press secretary David Arnold arrived. The following is the exchange Kramer had with him:

Kramer: “All I want is for him to say something to his constituents, the people who have to vote for him.”

Arnold: “I don’t think you can say he hasn’t said anything to his constituents. He spoke for nine hours yesterday.

Kramer: “But not to anyone in New York. You know, this is the sort of in-the-bunker in the capitol, not to anyone in New York.”

After Kramer left Weiner’s office, his staff called the Capitol Police.

Police officers asked for identification. One cop told Kramer that if she went into Weiner’s office and didn’t leave if she was asked, she could be arrested.

“If you go to an office and are asked to leave, you can be placed under arrest,” Officer Michael Miller said.

Kramer responded, “But I wasn’t refusing to leave.”

Kramer was never asked to leave Weiner’s office, but the fact that the cops were called is a clear sign that the stress of this so-called “Weinergate” controversy is taking its toll.

By the way, Chris Matthews doesn’t exactly have a tingle in his leg for Weiner or his story.  Dude, when the chief moonbat on MSDNC thinks a liberal darling has jumped the shark, then how soon until Weiner goes limp?
