Adam Baldwin sums up Harris-Perry’s ‘apology’ with truth-boom [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/tarafdavis/status/418038826804576256

As Twitchy reported, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry took to Twitter to faux-pologize to the Romneys for the despicable segment on her show that mocked their adopted black grandson. How did she issue her faux-pology? With a self-serving hashtag!

Bam.

Actor Adam Baldwin entered with a brutal truth-boom by pointing out what was missing from her ludicrous #MHPApology:

Bingo.

Telling, isn’t it?

Hume: Liberal culture of network news has claimed scalp of Sharyl Attkisson

http://twitter.com/#!/rushbaby760/status/443138647320432640

As Twitchy reported earlier, former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson is leaving the network after 20 years. Attkisson has most recently doggedly pursued stories such as Benghazi, as well as Fast & Furious and the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.

Fox News’ Brit Hume described the end of Attkisson’s CBS News career this way:

http://twitter.com/#!/brithume/status/443137474291060736

According to Politico, Attkisson “reached an agreement to resign” from CBS News after she’d “grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias.”

Hume retweeted this:

Go figure. If Attkisson had instead worked at MSNBC for three days she might have already won a Cronkite Award.

Reporter accusing another reporter of cyber-bullying sparks mockery

http://twitter.com/#!/MelissaTweets/status/409013727573188608

Reporter Mike Elk of “In These Times” magazine has been challenging “Daily Beast” reporter Eli Lake to a debate.

Apparently Elk doesn’t like how Lake reacted, because Elk is accusing Lake of “cyber bullying”:

http://twitter.com/#!/MikeElk/status/409012260598579200

According to Lake’s tweet, he might be able to make the same claim:

http://twitter.com/#!/EliLake/status/408671813695074304

Many Twitter users aren’t very sympathetic with the accuser in this alleged cyber bullying incident:

But then, Elk lashed out:

http://twitter.com/#!/MikeElk/status/409015434797936640

The accuser had become the perpetrator:

http://twitter.com/#!/ChrisBarnhart/status/409016219325317121

Ha!

The hashtag #EliLakeCyberBully quickly took off:

NAILED IT! Greg Gutfeld MOCKS the media’s obsession with Trump and Russia in 1 perfect tweet

The media has a problem. Well, the media has LOTS of problems, but their biggest one is the constant screeching and paranoia around Russia. Every time they think they have a ‘gotcha’ story on the president they end up just making themselves look more foolish and desperate.

Greg Gutfeld had the perfect example of the media’s ‘handiwork’:

Just because we’ve become accustomed to the White House Twitter feed inserting pictures of President Obama in tweets that are supposedly honoring anniversaries and birthdays of people, places and things otherwise unrelated to the president doesn’t mean they ever cease to amuse:

Poll names Ted Cruz world’s 3rd most influential person

According to the participants in a recent Rasmussen Reports survey, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the world’s third most influential person, behind the Pope and President Obama.

Did ‘Catfish’ reveal the freaky dangers of using an Obamaphone? [video]

http://twitter.com/#!/starcasm/status/466769842859945985

“Obama phone” and “Antwane” trended on Twitter this week as MTV aired “Antwane and Tony,” an episode of the reality show “Catfish.”

obama-phone-catfish-antwane

http://twitter.com/#!/KiannaLekael/status/466762507512999937

Here’s the deal: The tale of “Antwane and Tony” started three years ago when they met on an old-school telephone chat line. Their relationship took place via phone calls and Antwane said he had never even seen a picture of Tony. Antwane blamed his “Obamaphone.” It’s a “low-income phone,” he explained, “so you can’t do nothing with them but talk.”

http://twitter.com/#!/CatfishMTV/status/466662196907216896

Freaky spoilers ahead.

http://twitter.com/#!/ClevelanderJay/status/466762683950567424

http://twitter.com/#!/EverythingJess/status/466768440754069507

Well, not exactly. You see, “Tony” was actually Carmen, Antwane’s cousin. His cousin. She’s the one who got in touch with the “Catfish” producers to express her oh-so-genuine concern about this “Tony” creep.

http://twitter.com/#!/geneyoungpics/status/466769520158179329

OK, so maybe this episode really highlighted the horror of having Carmen in your life. She admitted she catfishes people all the time.

‘The hell you say?’ NBC reportedly wanted Jon Stewart to host MTP

http://twitter.com/#!/BecketAdams/status/519951468300754944

According to New York Magazine, that pretty much sums it up:

Unreal. RT @sahilkapur: "NBC was prepared to offer Stewart virtually ‘anything' to bring him over.” http://t.co/KQTSLP7wNx

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) October 8, 2014

From the Daily Intelligencer:

Before choosing Todd, NBC News president Deborah Turness held negotiations with Jon Stewart about hosting Meet the Press, according to three senior television sources with knowledge of the talks. One source explained that NBC was prepared to offer Stewart virtually “anything” to bring him over. “They were ready to back the Brinks truck up,” the source said. A spokesperson for NBC declined to comment. James Dixon, Stewart’s agent, did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Dang. That’s a juicy little news nugget, isn’t it?

.@TheDailyShow Can't wait for your segment tearing apart NBC fro trying to hire a comedian to host Meet the Press https://t.co/CHQzub6I4g

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

OMG. NBC wanted Jon Stewart to host Meet The Press. Oh journalism, how far have you fallen? That’s just pathetic.

— Heather (@hboulware) October 8, 2014

NBC is a reputable news organization. Tough and completely not biased. That's why they wanted Jon Stewart to host Meet the Press. #wait

— RB (@RBPundit) October 8, 2014

Eh, it’s NBC.

Jon Stewart deadpans to camera at thought of NBC hiring him to host Meet the Press (suggested segment title: Bleat the Press)

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

Jon Stewart hosting Meet the Press would mean it's just as unintentionally funny.

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

So nothing would really change, then.

Jon Stewart hosting a Sunday morning political show is just as unbelievable as having George Stephanopoulos host one. Oh wait…

— Andrew Johnson (@AndrewE_Johnson) October 8, 2014

If people are dumb enough to get their news from Jon Stewart, does it really matter which channel they tune into to do it?

— A.J. Winkelspecht (@ajwink) October 8, 2014

Good point.

Sure, Stewart is a clown. Maybe MTP would do better with a clown. Didja think of that?

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) October 8, 2014

They sure as heck couldn’t do much worse.

Kudos to NBC for thinking outside the box w/ the Jon Stewart idea. The old Sunday morning show model is deader than dead.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) October 8, 2014

Jon Stewart is no more a liberal hack than David Gregory. And Stewart is more respectable.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) October 8, 2014

Fair enough!
