News commentary about current events and things you WILL be talking about someday. The Cranky Media Guy is on top of it all. And sometimes behind it, too…


Oh the horror – the White House let semi-liberal talker Ed Schultz sit in on the Obama press conference. The shame is unbearable. Boy, this guy is SO right!  You’d never see a right wing talk show host at one of George Bush’s White House press conferences.  A male prostitute, sure, but not a right wing talk show host.  I mean, come on!  Decorum, people; does the word mean anything to you?

Oh yeah, um… there was that right-wing uber nut job talk show host Les Kinsolving at every White House press conference, asking questions like, “How can you stand the evil Democrats and their attempts to destroy America?” ..But you know, it wasn’t Rush so it doesn’t count. Nothing the far right does ever counts. EVER. When will we stupid reality-based people learn? – Politico’s Daily Anti-Obama rant.


Um, everyone?  When you resort to booking a plumber who isn’t a plumber who wants lower taxes although he doesn’t pay his taxes as your “guest speaker,” it’s pretty much over for your party.

I understand at their next meeting, they’re going to have Bob the Builder speak to them about infrastructure.

Remember some months back when a lady claimed that her daughter’s talking doll said, “Islam is the light”?  Well, now she’s hearing the same message in a Nintendo DS game.  Ok, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that this woman is fucking nuts.

As you read the story linked to below, notice the complete lack of skepticism.  It’s reported as if she is simply factually correct, with not a word to suggest that she HEARS SHIT THAT ISN’T THERE.

Occam’s Razor, people, Occam’s Razor.

Media uncritically repeats possibly schizophrenic claims


South Carolina state senator Robert Ford wants to lock up people who use “lewd” language.  Under this addled-brained asshole’s proposed law, using profanity could get you 5 years in jail and up to $5000 in fines.

According to the story linked below:

Which words are exactly considered profane is
still unclear, but the bill does have a list of qualifications for
profanity including words or actions that are lewd, vulgar or indecent
in nature.”

Well, thanks for clearing that up, Senator Douchebag.

I’ve got five bucks to bet that this assclown will eventually get caught involved in either a gay relationship or be found to have a substantial kiddie porn collection (no, I’m not equating being gay with being a perv; it’s that moralizing losers like this tend to lump them together and have enormous issues about their own “sinful” proclivities).

Oddly, the article doesn’t mention this guy’s political affiliation, but come on, you know he’s a Republican.  That’s the GOP for you, always working on the big issues in America–like cussing.
