MSNBC wants Kelly File Investigated for ‘Impossible’ Ratings

Megyn Kelly blew out Rachel Maddow in the key demo on Tuesday after losing to her the night before.

“I have never seen it in all my years of cable,” says Phil Griffin.

kelly_MaddowPhil Griffin, president of MSNBC, says there’s something fishy about Tuesday’s ratings for the Fox News Channel, which were up significantly from a day earlier when Fox News debuted its new schedule. And he wants an investigation.

“Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic. On the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours,” Griffin said at a briefing, according to TVNewser.

MSNBC Lean Forward but Obama, FEMA, Lean forward 110%

Today, Homeland Security Chief Janet  Napolitano said,  while talking about the FEMA Irene response in North Carolina, the Government will continue to “Lean Forward” 110%.

Last time I checked, if one leans forward even 50% they will find themselves fallen flat on their faces.  What perfect symbolism for where Obama finds himself.

Bozell to Media: Don’t Endorse John Kerry’s Crusade Against the Tea Party

Alexandria, VA – After Senator John Kerry took several vicious swipes at conservatives – on Sunday blaming the Tea Party for the Standard and Poor (S&P) downgrade and last week griping that the media should not give the Tea Party “equal time or equal balance,” Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following call to action:

“John Kerry is on a crusade to destroy the Tea Party. To blame the Tea Party for the S&P downgrade is like blaming the Betty Ford Clinic for alcoholism. The entire existence of the Tea Party movement has been based on an attempt to stop the runaway spending of Washington – by the likes of John Kerry. Any media outlet that features his outrageous blame game remarks without challenging his serial dishonesty is giving aid and comfort to the crusade to vilify and extinguish conservative thought.

“If this is the ‘Tea Party downgrade’ then I’m the fairy godmother. No, this is a well-coordinated effort by the left-wing to deflect bad news – very bad news – away from their very left-wing President Obama.

“Let’s not forget the conservative movement’s position on the debt. The only legislation that would have met the criteria to avert a downgrade was the Cut, Cap and Balance proposal. It included $5.8 trillion in cuts, far more than what S&P required. But President Obama vowed not to sign it, and the John Kerry Senate Democrats refused to consider it. The liberal media largely ignored this reality, too.

“So, nice try, left-wing propaganda machine. The President and his left-wing allies in Congress have earned their position in the hot seat. The left-wing media are aiding and abetting blatant falsehoods unless and until they call out Senator John Kerry as a deliberate liar.”

Biden Flip Flop – Could President could be Impeached over Libya? Let’s ask Biden

There is a lot of Flip Flopping Going around lately.  Those words against Bush are coming back to bite Democrats who are supporting the Presidents attack on Libya.  There are those to who where for the Attacks on Iraq, that are now are now against Obama’s actions.

We have as Media Matters like to say an “Epic Fail” as then Senator Biden was all over Bush for by passing Congress in his military action.   Biden was upset that Bush only got a United Nations and Congressional Resolution.  He wanted more.  Now, as VP  is all for action in Libya even without a resolution from Congress.

It is fun to watch the political gymnastics.  I give Biden a 9.75

In 2007, then Sen. Joe Biden appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball and said launching an attack without congressional approval is an impeachable offense. This flashback comes on the heels of Obama launching an attack on Libya without congressional approval.
