Fort What? Politico Asserts Obama ‘No Longer Has an Unblemished Record’ on Stopping Domestic Terrorism
Add Anna Palmer and her blinkered editors at Politico to this week's outbreak of Fort Hood amnesia. In a piece on how the Boston bombings would affect the political scene, she asked, "Where does this leave Obama’s record on terror?" She answered herself: "President Barack Obama no longer has an unblemished record in stopping domestic terrorism."
To the Obama voters at Politico it all begins and ends at Zero Dark Thirty, and no one there can seem to have the memory of a certain terrorist mass shooting that killed 13 and wounded 30:
Laura Ingraham: Obama Can Play Angry Birds on iPhone Tonight and Media Will Say ‘Masterful Performance’
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham doesn't think the liberal media's bar is very high for Barack Obama to get wildly favorable reviews after Tuesday's upcoming presidential debate with Mitt Romney.
Appearing on Fox & Friends early Tuesday morning, Ingraham said, "He can sit there playing Angry Birds on his iPhone and I think they’ll go, 'Oh wow, masterful performance'" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Ingraham and Hume Scold NYT’s Zeleny and Media for Not Pursuing Obama Administration’s Dissembling on Libya
With New York Times political reporter Jeff Zeleny sitting next to her on the Fox News Sunday set, radio host Laura Ingraham demanded: “I would hope that the New York Times, as they camped outside of Scooter Libby’s house, during the whole Valerie Plame thing -- are you guys camped out of the Susan Rice residence?” After reciting the administration’s dissembling, she concluded: “This is ridiculous and I think the press is partly culpable here.”
Zeleny avoided her point and instead contended Mitt Romney has an opening at the next debate to question President Obama, conceding Obama “hasn’t really explained himself and they have a lot of questions to answer.”
NB’s Rich Noyes, Laura Ingraham Discuss Polls Showing Americans Are Wise to Media’s Cheerleading of Barack Obama
A new poll by Rasmussen shows that 51 percent of voters think the media will, for the most part, attempt to help reelect President Obama rather than work to accurately and fairly report on the campaign. Only 9 percent of respondents believe the media are in the tank for Romney. That same poll found 59 percent of likely voters "believe Obama has received the best treatment from the media so far."
Filling in for Bill O'Reilly last night, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham discussed this poll and other evidence that the American public are wary of the media's liberal bias with NewsBusters senior editor/Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes.

Kurtz Asks Libtalker ‘Won’t People Like You and Ed Schultz Be Drowned Out’ By Conservatives This Election?
CNN's Howard Kurtz on Sunday asked liberal talk radio host Stephanie Miller a question that most right-thinking Americans pray the answer is "Yes."
"You are a liberal in a conservative media...dominated by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham," said the Reliable Sources host. "Won't people like you and Ed Schultz and some of the few liberal national voices on talk radio be drowned out in this election?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
WaPo Mag Editor: ‘Tough Time to Be a White Man in America Where the Minorities Are Really Taking Over’
Cathy Areu, a contributing editor for the Washington Post Magazine, said Monday, "It’s a tough time to be a white man in America where the minorities are really taking over."
This oddly surfaced on Fox News's O'Reilly Factor during a discussion about New York Times columnist Charles Blow comparing Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich to the kids that bullied a grandmother on a school bus last week (video follows with transcript and commentary):
CATHY AREU: I think it’s a very interesting angle. I write for the Washington Post Magazine, not the New York Times though. I don’t sit next to his desk. I don’t know what he was thinking. But it’s a very interesting angle, and I do think that people have a bullying mentality nowadays.
I think it’s a tough time to be a white man in America where the minorities are really taking over, to be quite honest. You’ve noticed on the show people are willing to vote for an atheist. The Latinos are stepping out. They are, minorities are outnumbering all whites in America.
I'm not sure what this had to do with Blow, Limbaugh, that grandmother, or those kids; neither did substitute host Laura Ingraham.
It was nevertheless an interesting observation about the direction of our country, especially from the daughter of Cuban immigrants that is the founder of Catalina magazine which caters to Hispanic women.
With so much focus on minorities and women in America today - including, of course, white women - Areu was voicing an inconvenient truth for Caucasians in this country that unfortunately possess a Y-chromosome.
More and more this demographic group is indeed treated with minority status by liberals and their media minions also blaming most of the world's problems on its members.
That doesn't validate her point though, for the problem isn't the growth in minorities.
It's instead the superior status they and the female population are given by the media that is making it "a tough time to be a white man in America."
As she's a member of that pompous, condescending media as well as the majority more favorably viewed by it, one wouldn't expect her to count herself as being part of the problem.
Nice of her to recognize it though even if she refused to opine on the cause.
O’Reilly noted: “The Media Research Center looked at the news this week on the nightly newscasts and CNN. Zero reporting. Nothing. Silence. Blackout.” (O’Reilly was mistaken in that CMI’s analysis didn’t cover CNN – just ABC, CBS and NBC.)
Video after the jump.
O’Reilly has now covered the Live Action story for three nights in a row – in stark contrast to the silence of the broadcast networks.
CMI receives a mention at the 5:30 mark.
