LEFTWING MEDIA HAS GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME … CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Blames Military Veterans for Baltimore Riots (Update: Apologizes on Twitter. Finally on TV)
LIBERALISM TRULY IS A MENTAL DISEASE … WELCOME TO THE DEMOCRAT-MEDIA COMPLEX.
While doing an interview with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) in the midst of the turmoil on the streets of Baltimore, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin had the audacity to blame military veterans for the Baltimore riots. WHAT? This liberal media-insanoid literally blamed vets coming home saying, “I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.” Really, you love them, I would hate to see if you didn’t love them what you would say. Welcome to the LEFT-wing media of today that does not report the news, but instead tries to pain a narrative that does not exist. Sorry, ESPN suspended foul-mouthed ESPN reporter Britt McHenry went off on a tirade on a impound lot employee, CNN should fire Brooke Baldwin for these false and ugly comments. But they won’t because this is the hate and bias that consumes liberal media outlets today.
Hmm, so what is Brooke Baldwin’s message, or should i say smear … Don’t hire vets because they are too unstable to be trusted? But don’t worry, she loves them.
After more than a year of CNN pouring gasoline all over America with hysterical, and oftentimes phony, stories of American racism, the left-wing network’s afternoon anchor Brooke Baldwin finally took it to the next level by blaming American veterans for the Baltimore riots.
In a pathetic suck-up interview with Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummins, Baldwin never once had the moral courage to ask the failed Baltimore City congressman if the left-wing policies ushered in by a half-century of a Democrat monopoly in Baltimore might have something to do with the city’s ills. Instead, she said of young military veterans who become police officers, “I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.”
The context was a discussion about increased training and retraining for the Baltimore police.
There’s no question Baldwin is hoping to launch a narrative with that smear.
UPDATE I: Brooke Baldwin apologized like a coward hiding behind her Twitter account. Sorry Brooke, you don’t get to make such inflammatory, hateful and defamatory comments like you did stereotyping our brave American vets on TV and then apologize on Twitter. What a brave soul you are. Get your butt on TV and apologize. Then I want you to go to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, she’s not that far away and apologize in person to wounded vets.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin this morning may have done the impossible: Deliver a mea culpa that the nation’s apology police cannot possibly puncture, dismantle, nitpick or otherwise trash.
Sweeping, tendentious nonsense. Baldwin offered no evidence to support her case that somehow battle-scarred veterans from recent wars were responsible for any of the policing problems in the country’s big cities, let alone in Baltimore. People on the Internet let her know of their disapproval. Baldwin’s first response was a bit weak:
That defense doesn’t work at CNN, which sells itself as a purveyor of straight-up journalism around the clock. So what if some hack “vocalized” a concern to Baldwin? Isn’t it her job to filter that concern, fact-check it and pat it down before “re-vocalizing” it?
Given some more time to think about it all, Baldwin this morning came around. Early this morning, she tweeted.
On CNN’s “New Day” program Baldwin said the following:
I made a mistake yesterday. We were in the middle of live TV, I was talking to a member of Congress, and I was recounting a story, a conversation I had had recently just referring to police. And I absolutely misspoke, I inartfully chose my words 100 percent and I just wish speaking to all of you this morning: I wholeheartedly retract what I said. And I’ve thought tremendously about this, and to our nation’s veterans, to you — this is just who I want to speak with this morning — I have the utmost respect for our men and women in uniform. And I wanted you to know that this morning, so to all of you, I owe a tremendous apology. I am truly sorry.
Sorry Brooke if I don’t believe a word of your apology. You meant every word you said, and that’s okay, just own it. You are a bed-wetting liberal who doesn’t know any better and repeats hateful BS. That’s okay, just say it.
EXIT QUESTION: Replace “VET” with “BLACKS” and does Brooke Baldwin have a job this morning?
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Says Saturday We Gave Gray Protestors ‘Who Wish To Destroy Space To Do That’ … Monday, Total Anarchy and Riots Ensue as She Walks Back Her Comments
Want to know how things like in Baltimore happen, it comes from a complete lack of leadership. Talk about a green light to protesters.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said during a press conference on Saturday when tensions were on the rise … “we also gave “those who wish to destroy space to do that as well.”
Mayor of Baltimore Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that while officials worked to protect protestors taking action over the death of Freddie Gray they also gave “those who wish to destroy space to do that as well.” During her press conference Saturday, Rawlings-Blake said that she worked with police to make sure they protected the protestors’ right to free speech, “ It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we try to make sure that they (protestors) were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well,” Rawlings-Blake said.
On Monday Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had complete amnesia as she says to reports that she never said such a thing and would never say anything like we are giving people space to destroy the city of Baltimore. HUH? She scolded the media and said that her words should not be twisted. DOUBLE HUH? Watch the VIDEO below. Sorry toots, you made the comment. Who are you going to believe, the mayors words or her backtracking? It is obvious that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was acting in a PC manner and wanted to give the protesters and trouble makers all the room in the words because in her liberal mind was, if you let them get it out of their systems, it will stop. However, it exploded.
This was not the media twisting someones words, it was a politician who was in over their head and hasn’t a clue how to deal with the situation. Instead of leadership, she blames the media. This is what happens when ideology gets in the way of leadership.
More billiance from the Mayor … Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced Monday evening that a week-long curfew would go into effect Tuesday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. local time, but many wondered why it had not been implemented Monday night. How in the hell was this curfew not put into place on Monday?

Looks like NBC is trying to give Lying Brian Williams the squeeze …
According to The Politico, NBC News brass is trying to shame suspended news anchor Brian Williams into resigning. One of those not so good stories regarding Williams was that according to their internal investigation, Williams appears to have embellished reporting stories at least 11 times.
Longtime broadcast executives say a triple crown of leaks about Brian Williams late last week appear to be an effort by NBC News to shame him into resigning, to avoid the messiness and possible additional expense of the firing. The brutal leaks were designed to send the message to Brian Williams and his superlawyer, Robert Barnett: “You’re dead. Now negotiate.”
This is the effect of the leaks, if not the intention. NBC insiders say his return is still possible. Look for a resolution over the next several weeks.
Williams was reported to be under a contract of as much as $50 million (five years, at up to $10 million each). Speculation is that he’ll get $20 million to $30 million to leave. The $20 million camp says that he’s so weak, he’ll get less than 50 cents on the dollar. The $30 million camp says Brian has plenty of ways to embarrass the bosses and colleagues who threw him under the bus, and NBC should stop the bleeding/leaking. “He knows things, too,” a wise man pointed out.
- WashPost’s Paul Farhi reported on the front of Friday’s Style section, “NBC’s D.C. news bureau opposed Brian Williams’s return as anchor” (online: … D.C. bureau strongly opposed … Williams’s return in February”)
- NYT’s Ravi Somaiya reported above fold of Saturday’s Business front (with A1 tease), “NBC Inquiry Into Anchor Is Said to Get New Grist”: “[Discrepancies are evident in accounts given by Mr. Williams in February 2011 [about his reporting from Egypt’s Tahrir Square] … In an appearance that month with Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show,’ Mr. Williams described his reporting from the square. …
- “Subsequent reports said that Mr. Williams was reporting ‘from a balcony overlooking Tahrir Square,’ rather than from inside the square itself … [E]mployees in the news division provided examples for the investigating team to look into, flagging instances in which they thought Mr. Williams had exaggerated.”
- Farhi reported online Saturday: “NBC News finds Brian Williams embellished at least 11 times.”
As Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel explains about amps and Brian Williams embellishments, this one goes to eleven!!!
When will Brian Williams return to NBC News, if ever? Back in February, NBC News suspended Brian Williams for 6 months without pay for his his faux Iraq war news story in 2003. It only took NBC News more than a decade to get to the bottom of this situation and Williams may never have been suspended at all if he had just shut his trap and stopped telling the false story. However, the NBC internal investigation of their news anchor has turned up at least 11 instances in which Williams publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits. 11!!! Good grief, the New York Times is reporting that NBC is looking into whether Williams fibbed about his reporting during Egypt’s Arab Spring.
Brian Williams’ suspension ends in August; however, I will find it impossible to believe that they could ever bring him back. All a news anchor has is their credibility to report the news and with 11 embellishments to his credit, Williams news cred is shot.
A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe.
NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements he’s made.
The Iraq claim was one of the 11 suspect statements that a team of NBC News journalists has identified during the inquiry, said the individual, who asked not to be identified because he isn’t authorized to talk about an internal matter.
The investigators, led by NBC News senior executive producer Richard Esposito, have also raised doubts about Williams’ comments about his experiences covering Israel’s military action against Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006. In an interview with a student-run television station at Fairfield University in Connecticut in 2007, Williams said he saw rockets passing “just beneath” the Israel helicopter in which he was traveling. But Williams gave a less harrowing account of the same trip in an NBC News blog a year earlier

Fouled Mouth ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Suspended for a Week After Berating Parking Lot Attendant After Car was Towed … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” (VIDEO)
ESPN SHOULD BE SO PROUD …
A foul-mouthed ESPN reporter Britt McHenry went off on a tirade as she recovered her car from an impound lot after her car had been towed. Personally, I can understand that some one is upset in dealing with a tow truck company and getting one’s car back because it is an ordeal and a pain in the butt; however, McHenry’s personal attack on the individual just doing her jon was completely uncalled for. Advanced Towing has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, but with that being said, McHenry did not have to take her attack out on the employee. The VIDEO, that went viral, showed Britt McHenry going off on the female attendant as she insulted and mocked the attendant’s job, education and physical appearance after her car was towed earlier this month in Arlington, Virginia. Among her insults were, “I’m in the news, sweetheart, I will f—ing sue this place.” … “I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey.” … refered to the attendant as a “college dropout.” … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” … and “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
ESPN has suspended Britt McHenry for a week. WOW, a week? That will teach her. The 28 year old Britt McHenry attended Stetson University in Deland, Florida and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University; however, even though she attended class, it appears that she learned nothing about having class. What is even more amazing is that McHenry was told that she was being videoed and that did not shut her up from embarrassing herself. As Britt McHenry continued her verbal assault on the woman and said, “Why, cause I have a brain and you don’t” all I could think of was I wish the female attendant had said back to her, you may have a brain but you don’t seem to have your car.
The sidelined reporter — who tweeted and then deleted that Advanced Towing was “corrupt” on April 6 — can be seen on security footage nastily explaining why she’s a more worthy human being.
“I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey,” she later says, even referring to the attendant as a “college dropout.”
McHenry, 28, attended Stetson University in Deland, Fla., and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University.
The edited clip plays like a highlight reel of jabs and insults as McHenry, who joined ESPN in March 2014, attacks the looks of her prey, who is off-camera.
“Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” she asks.
But wait, there’s more. The reporter gets in a final dig before walking away: “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
McHenry apologized for her behavior Thursday after the video went viral.
“In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things,” McHenry wrote on Twitter.
“As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake.
Taking the high road Britt, you mean like what you had previously asked others to do?
Britt McHenry, the foul-mouthed ESPN reporter who was suspended for her bullying tirade, urged her Facebook friends to be kind and compassionate — just days before she verbally attacked a Virginia parking lot attendee.
“Take the high road and be nice to people,” she posted on Facebook on March 29. “Amazing how a small kind gesture can go so far, yet similarly so can the impact of negative words. Don’t choose the latter.”
ITS NEVER GOOD FOR DEMOCRATS WHEN THE DAILY SHOW MOCKS YOU AND SHOWS YOU FOR THE FRAUDS YOU ARE …
Of course Jon Stewart attacked the GOP, after all it is Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, but his mockery of Hillary Clinton’s boring presidential roll out as he compared the Hillary Clinton VIDEO to a State Farm commercial. After watching the beginning of the video, Stewart says, “this is boring as SH*T.” Stewart went on to opine, “it’s weird how they wouldn’t let you make your own commercial, you had to share your announcement with a guy from a gravel company.” But Jon, this is to she she is own of the people. yeah, Stewart isn’t buying it either.
The Daily Show had a bit of fun with Hillary Clinton’s big announcement this week. After mocking her fairly boring campaign video, host Jon Stewart praised Clinton for “not acting like she’s dropping a bombshell with the announcement, because this isn’t about her,” which he called a “refreshing change from her 2008 strategy, “shut up I’m talking, the I am inevitable bus tour.”
