McClatchy-Raleigh taking the MSNBC route

At one point, MSNBC saw that it was getting bludgeoned in the ratings by CNN, Fox News, Bugs Bunny cartoons, Ginsu knife infomercials, and test patterns.  The network decided it was going to stop competing for normal viewers, and would aim for the really kooky,…

A RINO and a lefty walk into a Starbuck’s …. (STOP ME if you’ve heard this one before)

Apparently, a group of GOP legislators has been meeting on the down-low  with reps of Bill Barber’s zip-tie crowd.  Never mind that Big Bill’s group is composed mostly of (1) hardcore Democrat activists, (2) veterans of international left-wing protest efforts, (3) Occupy Wall Street vets,…

It’s Monday. Break out the zip-ties ….

    Drink plenty of Pepto-Bismol before turning on the local TV news Tuesday morning.  If past Tuesday mornings are any indicator, we will be made nauseous by sickening video love-fests to Bill Barber and his carnival sideshow’s never-ending run on Jones Street. Triangle-based blogger…

#FREEDANACOPE from the #NCMedia gulag

      We don’t see eye-to-eye with SEANC / SEIU head honcho Dana Cope on much, but we agree wholeheartedly with his assessment of the #MoralMondays lunacy at the legislative building in Raleigh.  If you are a regular reader of this site, you are…

#NCMedia making you feel a little like a mushroom?

The Left and its comrades at McClatchy and WRAL break their necks to attach the adjective “Art Pope-funded” or “Koch  Brothers-funded” to the name of ANY conservative group daring to question their antics.  It’s important — they tell us — to know WHO is behind…

#NCmedia STILL blind to the role of radical Left in #MoralMondays protests

        It appears our state’s legacy media is STILL in the tank for Bill Barber’s circus on Jones Street. Tuesday’s offering from WTVD was absolutely nausea-inducing: Two of the 84 people arrested in the latest “Moral Monday” demonstration are speaking out about…

#MoralMondays coverage: mainstream media bumbling OR sinister conspiracy? You make the call.

    What’s left of our state’s mainstream media has sunk to an all-time low with their coverage of this Moral Monday silliness on Jones Street.   We’re getting a lot of dictation. We’re hiding the affiliations of arrestees and protest spokespeople.  We’re not seeing…
