WRAL’s Binky predicts the future.

Move aside, Carnac the Magnificent.  There’s a new swami in town.   Mark “Binky” Binker — Bert to colleague Laura Leslie’s Ernie — is one half of WRAL’s port-leaning political team.  We brought you news about Madame Leslie displaying her lefty, anti-Republican views on social…

Guess what? They’ve got O-PINIONS over at WRAL. (*Who knew?*)

#WRAL’s Miss Laura: ANGRY at ‘Crazy Bernie,’ Sean Hannity (and probably ME)

It’s always *refreshing* to see an alleged hard-news driveby taking stands on the very issues she covers.  Here’s Miss Leslie venting about ‘Crazy Bernie’ Sanders and his efforts in North Carolina:     Here’s two more of Laura’s cents on North Carolina’s marriage amendment to…

Driving Miss Leslie (um, CRAZY)

I really don’t want to look like I am piling on. Kicking someone when they are down. (*Really.*) This site helped make WRAL’s Laura Leslie famous on a national scale.    But another little factoid about Miss Laura caught our attention.  This comes from her bio…

WRAL’s Laura Leslie: HB2 supporters to blame for Orlando shootings

Yep. She went THERE.  (We were so expecting “Gay Stuff!!!”™ Campbell over at The N&O to do it first.)   Laura Leslie appeared to show her true radical leftist colors on her Facebook page this weekend.  The page got sanitized, but we — via the…

#ncpol: So much Binkering. So little time.

I see that WRAL has Mark Binker — reportedly the son of WJM’s Ted Baxter — on the, um, “fact-checking” beat.  That’s a travesty akin to letting Charles Manson baby-sit the kids while you take the missus out for a bite.  We invented the verb…

#NCSEN: Look at Meeeeee! I’m David Crabtreeeeeeeeee !!!

I wanted to find something nice to say about what WRAL did with this election broadcast.  Really.  First, the format was much better than last night.  WRAL deserves kudos for going to the roundtable discussion with ONE moderator.  After that, it all goes DOWNHILL. THIRTY…
