Things You Can Count On In Tomorrow Night's Democratic Presidential Debate.

I think there will be certain things that are predictable for tomorrow night’s Democratic presidential debate.   You know you suck as a moderator when you get panned by both Democrats and Fox “News.”  And I am talking about Bothsiderist Chuck Todd.  Seriously, I don’t normally pay any attention to Fox, but this take down of Todd…

I Think Senate Democrats Need To Call Republican Bluff On Impeachment Witnesses.

Chuck “I’m no freakin’ TV referee” Todd stated that Senate Democrats and Republican each have a list of impeachment witnesses that are based upon the old MAD (mutually assured destruction) rule with nuclear weapons.  Democrats want Bolton and Mulvaney and who knows else that has dirt on Trump to testify, and Republicans have a wishlist of witnesses…

Impeachment hearings confirm Republican Party is detached from reality. What does the press do now?

Republicans proudly advertised their radical ways during Wednesday's impeachment hearings into Donald Trump, wallowing in conspiracies and embracing debunked claims. The question now: How does the Beltway media cover a party that has aggressively removed itself from reality? How does the news business describe and treat a political party that routinely echoes the most unbelievable claims…

Michael Bloomberg and the media privilege for billionaire candidates

Here’s a quick news quiz: If you were editing The New York Times and advisers to Michael Bloomberg were telling your reporters that the billionaire might run for president, would you run that story on the front page? For how many days in a row? Considering he is the former mayor of New York, I could see the…

How the Sunday morning network shows became willing Trump enablers

When it comes to the Sunday morning network talk shows, no other influential media platform has done so little to adjust its approach to our radical, untruthful president. Sticking to their staid, deeply respectful format where Republican government officials are treated as perpetual truth-tellers, the Sunday shows remain proudly and utterly oblivious to the seismic…

Meet the Press host disappoints serious journalist Chuck Todd

In late May, President Donald Trump shocked many when he rejected the assessments of his own administration and U.S. allies about recent North Korean violations of United Nations resolutions regarding its ballistic missile program. In response to Trump’s support for the “very smart man” in Pyongyang, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd offered a novel…

Chuck Todd gets his payola

This will be a short diary because — I just can’t. Remember two days ago when people were upset at Chuck Todd when waded in to the whole “concentration camp” pandemonium?” I know it seems like so long ago. Since then we have had a demagogic rally, we almost got in to a World War,…

Sarah Sanders: Trump will let Barr decide whether Comey should be arrested

Baghdad Blob* was on Meet the Press this morning to discuss the week in Trump insanity. Needless to say, this exchange was chilling: CHUCK TODD: Does [Trump] expect criminal charges, does he expect — he’s accused James Comey of treason. Does he expect Jim Comey to be arrested? SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS: Again, we’re going to let the…

To Republicans: Live by the Subpeona, Die by the Subpeona.

Mr. Bothsiderist — Chuck “Not My Job to Be a Referee” Todd – and several other talking heads have bemoaned the fact of the lack of “bipartisanship” by Democrats during the upcoming House hearings, but yesterday, the Republicans on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform proved that they cannot be allowed to play by the old…
