From Media Research Center's Brent Bozell:
“This is beyond ridiculous. The networks rushed to cover a Hill staffer’s silly comments on Facebook, but waited more than a week to cover an ObamaCare architect’s serious admission that voters were deceived about a policy that affects every American; and they gave almost twice as much coverage to the silly story than to the serious story.
“The networks’ shamelessness in covering for Obama – ignoring huge news that has deep impact on all Americans while looking for any angle, no matter how trivial, to attack his critics – seemingly reaches a new low every couple of weeks.
“Until ABC, CBS, and NBC start covering genuine Democrat scandals as eagerly as they cover Republican missteps, they will continue to be nothing more than DNC-TV.”
Most people knew very little about Benghazi until after the general election because the networks wouldn't cover it. Sure, and they'd give a Republican a break just like that, right?
***More idiocy from Jon Stewart, but that's what I expect.
When it comes to social issues, you can always expect Jon Stewart, who the left loves to call a “moderate,” to toe the liberal party line. On Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” Stewart spoke about the NFL’s St. Louis Rams players coming onto the field before the Sunday game with their hands raised in the Ferguson protesters’ gesture of “Hands up, don’t shoot.” To Stewart, the gesture was a “rare instance of social awareness” and “solidarity.”
Despite the fact that there is no reliable evidence that that Michael Brown ever put his hands up in his encounter with Officer Darren Wilson, protestors around the country have adopted the hand gesture as symbol for Michael Brown’s innocence and police brutality. Instead of acknowledging the fact that this incident has been largely debunked as part of the false narrative of events leading up to Brown’s death, Stewart bashed the St. Louis police for taking offense at this mini-rebellion.
If Brown HAD raised his hands and said "don't shoot," he'd probably be alive today. Instead, he charged the police officer ordering him to stop. But...don't waste facts on a liberal. They can't process them.

***Your tax dollars at work.
$25,000 for a Christmas party.
$11,000 for premium coffee services.
Millions more for questionable construction costs.
All this was billed to taxpayers by an obscure federally funded science group, according to a scathing new inspector general report.
The audit, conducted by the National Science Foundation inspector general and the Defense Contract Audit Agency, detailed spending by the Colorado-based National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). The nonprofit, designed to operate a network of ecological observatories across the continent, is solely funded by the National Science Foundation.
The report found that spending at the group has gotten out of control.
"Given the present lack of controls, there is virtually no accountability over the contingency funds ... NSF does not have sufficient safeguards over the significant and unsupported contingency costs included in NEON's award budget," the report said.
Go Go Go!!!
***World's "worst" Nazi is dead. What a horrifying story.
The world's most-wanted Nazi is dead, and he died without regrets about his role in the murder of thousands of Jews. That's according to Nazi hunter Efraim Zuroff, who says a German secret service agent recently revealed that Alois Brunner, Adolf Eichmann's "best man," died in Syria four years ago at the age of 98, the Times of Israel reports. Brunner handled the deportation of more than 128,000 Jews to Nazi death camps, but he evaded capture and landed in Syria, where he's said to have advised President Hafez al-Assad on torture methods he honed during his SS tenure, the Daily Express reports. "He was involved in the harsh treatment of the Jewish community of Syria and was an expert in terror and torture," Zuroff, head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Israeli office, tells the Express. "He said himself his one regret was he did not kill more Jews. He was unrepentant."
Getting into the spirit...
