NBC, MSNBC Sink to Bottom of Who the Public Trusts as FOX News is the Most Trusted Name in News, AGAIN

What a shock, NBC and BSNBC MSLSD MSNBC have sunk to the bottom of the media outlets that Americans trust most for their news. Wow, really? Who would have thought that the Peacock has turned into a propaganda network for the Obama administration?  Imagine that “We the People” do not trust a media outlet like MSNBC that has to consistently apologize for hideous and heinous comments and tweets they make that are bigoted and racist. Oh, and the network that intentionally edited tapes to distort the news to make George Zimmerman a racists and misrepresent what actually happened.  And what will make the LEFT howl as FOX News was named #1 by PPP.  That would be named the most trusted name in news, AGAIN.

Fox News is the most trusted, with 35% choosing the “Fair and Balanced Network.”

MOST … Again

FOX News

LEAST … who saw that coming?

NBC News and sister cable network MSNBC rank at the bottom of media outlets Americans trust most for news, with Fox News leading the way, according to a new poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling.

In its fifth trust poll, 35 percent said they trusted Fox news more than any other outlet, followed by PBS at 14 percent, ABC at 11 percent, CNN at 10 percent, CBS at 9 percent, 6 percent for MSNBC and Comedy Central, and just 3 percent for NBC.

The pollster said Fox won because Republicans are devoted to it. “It leads the way because of its continuing near total support among Republicans as the place to go for news- 69 percent of Republicans say it’s their most trusted source with nothing else polling above 7 percent,” said PPP.

Fox News once again most and least trusted name in news.

PPP’s 5th annual poll about trust in TV news continues to find what it does every year: Fox News is both the most trusted and least trusted name in news.

35% of Americans say they trust Fox News more than any other TV news outlet, followed by 14% for PBS, 11% for ABC, 10% for CNN, 9% for CBS, 6% each for Comedy Central and MSNBC, and 3% for NBC. It leads the way because of its continuing near total support among Republicans as the place to go for news- 69% of Republicans say it’s their most trusted source with nothing else polling above 7%.

NRO says it best,  “If Democrats only have MSNBC at 12 percent, what’s the point of their liberal-bias programming? I’m no high-paid television executive, but these polling numbers suggest to me that hiring some true conservatives at CNN and MSNBC might translate into new viewer.”

Oh the Irony … Obamacare’s Unpopularity Rises Among the Uninsured

You just can’t make this stuff up, Obamacare’s unpopularity is rising among the, hold it, hold it, … the UNINSURED!!!

President Barack Obama, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), then Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Obama’s minions and the lapdog liberal MSM all touted Obamacare as the way to insure the so-called 50 million uninsured in America. However, the lies, broken promises and unpopularity of Obamacare keeps coming. A Kaiser Health Tracking Poll: January 2014, the almost unthinkable, yet comical data is coming forth with regards to the very people that Obamacare was intended to help. As the deadline for 2014 enrollment nears, Obamacare is increasingly growing unpopular, especially among the uninsured. 47% of Americans who lack health insurance have an unfavorable opinion of Obamacare, outnumbering by 2-to-1 those uninsured Americans who like Obamacare at  24%

Who thinks that part of this has to do with that there was a perception that Obamacare would be free and now those who did not have insurance previously either because they could not afford it or did not want it are now forced by law to buy it or else? Barack Obama and his minions have mislead an entire country.

Among The Uninsured, Unfavorable Views Outnumber Favorable By 2-to-1, And More Believe They’re Worse Off Under The Law Than Better

Among the uninsured – a key group targeted by the ACA – views of the law shifted negative this month. A quarter (24 percent) of those who currently lack coverage now say they have a favorable view of the law, while nearly twice as many (47 percent) have an unfavorable view and about three in ten (28 percent) decline to offer an opinion. In December, views among the uninsured were more evenly split (36 percent favorable, 43 percent unfavorable).

More than half of the uninsured (54 percent) say the law hasn’t made much difference for their families, and the share who feel they’re worse off as a result of the law is more than twice the share who feel they’re better off (30 percent versus 13 percent). When asked about the uninsured as a group, those without coverage are more likely to say the law has left this group worse off than better (39 percent versus 26 percent). We will continue to track these perceptions as more of the uninsured gain coverage.

Reporter for The Washington Free Beacon Ellison Barber discussed a recent survey which indicated uninsured Americans do not like Obamacare Thursday with Eric Bolling on Fox News.

Barber noted many of the uninsured are discovering Obamacare is not as cheap as advertised. Subsidies only cover up to 400 percent of the federal poverty line, so families with larger expenses but who surpass that income threshold will get stuck with bigger price tags for health insurance.

Federal Prosecutors Will Seek the Death Penalty Against Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

FINALLY ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER GETS SOMETHING RIGHT, FEDS WILL SEEK DEATH PENALTY AGAINST DZHOKHAR TAARNAEV …

United States federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty against  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that took place on April 15, 2013 that left three dead and many more seriously injured losing limbs. U.S. attorney in Boston, Carmen Ortiz, said in a statement that prosecutors there supported the decision and that the “trial team is prepared to move forward.” It can’t come soon enough. If there was ever a case for the death penalty, this would be it. Let’s give Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his fair trial, let the jury deliberate and let’s hope that common sense prevails and he is found guilty and sentenced to death.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev better hope that Boston Red Sox’s Big Papi is not selected for jury duty …

The Justice Department announced Thursday that it would seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 20-year-old man whom prosecutors have accused of bombing the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 200 others.

“The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a short statement.

The U.S. attorney in Boston, Carmen Ortiz, said in a statement that prosecutors there supported the decision and that the “trial team is prepared to move forward.”

The case is in its early stages, and prosecutors could yet use the threat of death to strike a plea bargain with the young man and avoid a lengthy trial with bombing victims taking the stand to recount the attack.

Notice to seek the death penalty can be read HERE.

NOTICE OF INTENT TO SEEK THE DEATH PENALTY

The United States of America, by and through its undersigned counsel and pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3593(a),notifies the Court and
Defendant DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV that the United States believes the circumstances of the offenses charged in Counts One through Ten
and Counts Twelve through Eighteen of the Indictment are such that, in the event of a conviction, a sentence of death is justified
under Chapter 228 (Sections 3591 through 3598) of Title 18 of the United States Code, and that the United States will seek the sentence
of death for these offenses. (more)

CNN has audio of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother reaction and for some reason decides to report on the news that  Dzhokhar’s mother thinks he is innocent of the Boston Marathon bombings and the murders that took place in the aftermath. CNN also then reported that many in southern Russia are distrustful of the US government’s case against  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. I wonder why their ratings are waning?

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Hammers DOJ’s Eric Holder on Compromised Integrity of IRS Investigation

How could this not be considered a conflict of interest?

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Attorney General Eric Holder on the impartiality and conflict of interest in the IRS investigation of conservative groups and Tea Party organizations by the IRS. To data no one has been held accountable, even though President Obama and Holder both initially proclaimed their outrage. However, of all the attorneys in the Justice department, he managed to find one to lead the investigation that was a big Obama campaign donor. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What would happen if a Republican administration did the same? These folks are as corrupt as it gets.

“In the 280 days since that inspector general report, nobody has been indicted,” Cruz said. “Not a single person. In the 280 days since that inspector general report, it’s been publicly reported that no indictments are planned. Today in this hearing, you were unwilling to answer a question whether even a single victim of targeting has been interviewed.”

And, Cruz said, “most astonishingly, it has now been publicly reported that the lead lawyer heading the investigation was, No. 1, appointed from the civil rights division, which has historically been the most politically charged division in the Dept. of Justice. And even more astonishingly, is a major Democratic donor and donor to President Obama.”

Hmm, what does the Obama administration and IRS have to hide … I thought this was supposed to be the most transparent presidency ever? Time to appoint an independent prosecutor. Where is the MSM reporting this abuse of power?

The Blaze:

Attorney General Eric Holder had a long day on Wednesday. He clashed with a number of no-nonsense lawmakers during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, including Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Cruz pressed Holder on the Justice Department’s investigation into the IRS targeting scandal, calling the results of the probe “astonishing.”

“In my view, the integrity of the Department of Justice has been severely compromised,” Cruz told Holder. “Predecessors of yours in both parties, Democrat and Republican, when faced with serious charges of abuse of power for partisan gain have made the right decision and appointed special prosecutors.”

“I would call upon you to carry out the tradition of independence that attorneys general have honored that office with for centuries and protect the integrity of the Department of Justice,” he later added. “Given the political sensitivities, given the fact that individual citizens believe they are being persecuted by the federal government for partisan reasons.”

No One Cares to Listen to Barack Obama’s Lies Anymore … Nielson Ratings for Obama’s 2014 SOTU was Lowest in 20 Years

Hey Barack, there just not that into you anymore, America tunes out President Obama, his promises, his agenda and his lies.

It is safe to say that America has grown tired and weary of the Obama presidency. According to the Nielson rating for Obama’s SOTU Tuesday night, was the lowest in 20 years. According to Neilson, the State of the Union Address registered only a 20.7 household share rating. That is a far cry from Obama’s 2009 SOTU ‘Hope & Change’ address where he garnered a 32.5  share. As Doug Ross opines,  I guess whiny, depressing liars aren’t good for ratings.” Obama fatigue has officially set in.

Obama_SOTU_Biden asleep

Even Biden Fell Asleep

On Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014 President Barack Obama delivered his second State of the Union address of his second term in office. The address was carried live from 9:00 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. on 13 networks and tape-delayed on Univision. The sum of the average audience for those networks was 33,299,172 viewers with a combined household rating of 20.7. The networks carrying the address live were CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, Azteca, Fox Business, Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Al Jazeera America, Galavision and Mun2.

Here are the previous numbers for SOTU addresses (in millions):

2014 – 20.7

2012 – 24
2011 – 26.6

New York Congressman Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) Threatens to Throw Snarky MSM Reporter Off Balcony … “If you ever do that to me again, I’ll throw you off this f*cking balcony” (Update: Grimm Apologizes)

Balcony-gate …

Really, the liberal media is shocked that some one would get pissed at an ambush interview? US Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) threatens to throw NY 1 reporter off balcony following live ambush interview. Boy, that would have added some excitement to a completely boring SOTU address. Hmm, when listening to the reporter being interviewed below by CNN at the very end of the VIDEO you hear the words that raise some red flags when it comes to media interviews. Scotto said that the Congressman knew it was a live interview and the cameras were rolling; however, Scotto was asked did you have a deal with him prior to the interview with what the interview would and would not cover? Scotto was further asked, so Grimm has no expectation going into the interview that it would not be asked … his response, “that was not my understanding.” Gee, how subjective an answer is that?

“Let me be clear to you: If you ever do that to me again, I’ll throw you off this f***ing balcony,” Grimm said.

Scotto replied that he was just trying to ask “a valid question.”

“No, no. You’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half, like a boy,” Grimm replied.

UPDATE I: Grimm released a statement following the incident.

“I was extremely annoyed because I was doing NY1 a favor by rushing to do their interview first in lieu of several other requests. The reporter knew that I was in a hurry and was only there to comment on the State of the Union, but insisted on taking a disrespectful and cheap shot at the end of the interview, because I did not have time to speak off-topic. I verbally took the reporter to task and told him off, because I expect a certain level of professionalism and respect, especially when I go out of my way to do that reporter a favor. I doubt that I am the first Member of Congress to tell off a reporter, and I am sure I won’t be the last,” reads the statement.

I bet Obama would have loved it if Grimm tossed the reporter off the balcony, the focus would have been diverted to the Congressman, rather than Obama’s lame SOTU.

UPDATE II: Congressman Grimm Apologizes to NY1 Reporter…. Michael Scotto accepts apology.

After initially saying he did nothing wrong, Republican Rep. Michael Grimm picked up the phone and apologized Wednesday to NY1 Washington bureau reporter Michael Scotto.

“I apologized. I called Michael Scotto. He was very gracious and accepted my apology,” Grimm said. “We’re going to have lunch sometime next week and just make sure this is all behind us.
