Heidi Heitkamp: I Lost Because of Hillary Clinton and Because I Was Branded as a Democrat

Heidi Heitkamp: I Lost Because of Hillary Clinton and Because I Was Branded as a Democrat

A popular pastime for politicians looking to fill time after losing an election is to come up explanations for their loss that deflect blame from themselves. As an example, former North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp recently took away from her new gig writing deep-as-a-puddle retirement advice articles to blame her party affiliation and Hillary Clinton

Fake News: MSNBC Aired #NoDAPL Report on Buffalo Hunting Even After They Were Told It Is Inaccurate

Last week I posted some video a #NoDAPL activist had taken of a MSNBC news team recording a segment from the Oceti Sakowin protest camp in south central North Dakota. When I originally posted the video I couldn’t find where it had actually been broadcast. I thought that perhaps Perry, having been told that his

Video: NBC News Team Surprised to Learn That North Dakota Indians Shop at Grocery Stores

In the annals of clueless, slanted, utterly out-of-touch national media reporting from the #NoDAPL protests in south central North Dakota this recorded NBC News report takes the cake. The video below was taken by one of the self-styled “water protectors” of NBC/MSNBC reporter Cal Perry recording a report on site. I’m assuming it was for the

#NoDAPL Protesters Trying to Make “Something Bad” Happen to Get Attention?

“I’m here to die if I have to. I don’t want to die but I will.” Those are the words of Didi Banerji, one of the #NoDAPL protesters participating in an illegal roadblock of Highway 1806 and an equally illegal nearby encampment on private land. It seems the protesters are readying themselves to be cannon

Ed Schultz Going Off The Air

I’m getting a lot of celebratory emails from my conservative readers today on the news that Ed Schultz is ending his nationally-syndicated three hour radio show, opting instead to do a one hour a day show strictly on the internet in addition to his daily MSNBC show. Mediate has more: The move from radio to

Media Narrative On Obama Scandals: These Republicans Might Be Overplaying Their Hands

Democrats are trying to build a fence around the IRS scandals by building a narrative in which the scandals represent an important area for scrutiny and discussion, but not by those nasty Republicans who just want to score political points. That was former Obama adviser David Axelrod’s spin this morning on MSNBC. “There are clearly

Since The Election, MSNBC Has Fallen Back To Fourth Place In The Ratings

Election season was very good to MSNBC in terms of ratings, pushing the network up to second place where they were nipping at the heels of Fox News. But since the election things have been quite a bit slower for the network. At Mediaite, Joe Concha attributes the hyper-partisan network’s decline to being positioned to

ABC News Reporter: "Strong Sense" Someone In The White House Authorized IRS Targeting

“I’ve worked in this town for over 20 years – I’ve worked in the White House and on Capitol Hill – and I can say with a very strong sense of certainty that there are people very close to this president that not only knew what the IRS were doing but authorized it,” ABC News’

North Dakota Clinic Director: Criticism Of Abortion Is "Disgusting," Heart Beat Bill Adds "Stigma" To Abortion

Tammi Kromenaker, director of the Red River Women’s Clinic (a ghoulishly fitting title, especially with the Kermit Gosnell trial in the headlines), was on MSNBC last night suggesting that criticism of abortion is “disgusting.” “When a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant, she’ll go through hell, high water in North Dakota — blizzards, floods, you

Hoeven: Obama "Moving The Goal Posts" On Keystone Pipeline

North Dakota Senator John Hoeven was on MSNBC this morning talking about the Boston bombing, budget battles and the Keystone XL pipeline. “We’ll put a hundred thousand barrels a day of Bakken light sweet crude into that pipeline,” Senator Hoeven said of the project’s importance to North Dakota. “The president needs to make a decision.
