Could MSNBC become any more of a joke? Looks like the Magic 8 Ball says … signs point to yes.
As reported by Mediaite, Alec Baldwin is going to host a prime time show on the MSNBC cable news channel. According to Mediaite, Bladwin will not be replacing any of the stellar prime time news talent that MSNBC as assembled, but instead will replace the Lockup prison documentary series that airs Friday evenings. Are you kidding, that is actually the only show worth watching on the pathetic network. It would appear that MSNBC is neither confirming or denying the rumor.
Is the only reason why anyone would watch this to see if he has a melt down on live TV? But alas there is no way they would allow such a show to be taped live.
War on woman? Take a good look what MSNBC thinks should host a show on their network … Alec Baldwin calls his 12 year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”
Mediaite has learned from a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming that actor Alec Baldwin is getting his own weekly show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.
According to our source, the so far untitled show will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics.
The gig would make sense, considering Baldwin’s long history with the NBC family. He starred on the network’s award-winning sitcom 30 Rock for seven years, has frequently hosted Saturday Night Live, and hosted the network’s American airing of 2007?s Live Earth concert. Most important, Baldwin’s fiercely liberal and often combative political views make sense for a network that has become the place for progressive viewpoints on cable.
Twitchy is a flutter with some great tweets regarding Alec Baldwin to MSNBC. How comical, pathetic and telling is it that FOX News puts an intelligent, aspiring and up and coming female talent like Megyn Kelly to prime time on their network and MSNBC puts a tired, old cranky, child hating, gay bashing lunatic white man like Alec Baldwin on theirs? Really, is this how far this cable network has fallen? I am going to go out on a limb and say it will not be too long before Lock Up is back on Friday’s.
Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com could not have stated it any better, “If the story is true, it’s another desperate attempt by MSNBC to make Al Sharpton look like the rational one”. Amen brother!
Ted Nugent Says, ‘Trayvon Got Justice,’ as Anti-American Libs Try to Stop Free Speech … Calls Petitioners “Idiots” and “Subhuman Numbnuts” & Calls Out Barack Obama and Eric Holder
Whether you love him or hate him, Ted Nugent, the Motor City Madman rocker is allowed his “free speech” as afforded by the United States Constitution.
During an interview with Maine radio station WGAN, Nugent defended his recent comments regarding Trayvon Martin, blacks and crime and those that think that he should not play rock and roll in Connecticut were “idiots”. Those that have an issue with the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution have started a petition to prevent Nugent from performing at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT. Really folks, this is how you direct your energies? Nugent called a group of petitioners who want his August gig at the nightclub Toad’s Place in New Haven canceled “subhuman numbnuts.” I guess it is safe to say that none of the “numbnuts” will be attending his concert. These same “idiots” are the ones who are claiming that “Justice for Trayvon” and wanting to get Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ to file a Civil Rights case against George Zimmerman. Oh the irony, as at the same time the collective “idiots” are trying to take away Ted Nugent’s freedom of speech. What a shock that there is a liberal double standard.
Ted Nugent stated that “Trayvon Martin got justice”. Personally, I think this is a poor choice of words because of how individuals define justice. What Trayvon Martin got was his day in court. Initially that is what Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Martin’s parents and the liberal MSM wanted when they made this story a race issue and forced Florida to try the death of Trayvon after prosecutors in Sanford. FL had decided not to. But that is not what they really wanted, they wanted their pound of flesh from George Zimmerman. They were only after a guilty verdict no matter what the evidence showed. They could not accept a jury’s “not guilty” verdict in the case and now are seeking other avenues of going after Zimmerman. As if this case has not been exploited enough.
Ted Nugent expresses his views as only the ‘Motor City Madman’ can …
When asked about the “idiots” in Connecticut who think he “shouldn’t play rock and roll,” Nugent told the conservative host: “You and I stand on the line of reason” and must not be silenced.
“People who hate Ted Nugent hate freedom,” he said, and promised to continue to speak what he sees as the truth.
Nugent also had some choice things to say about liberals, racial activists and Trayvon Martin during the interview.
Defending his previous comments about blacks and crime, Nugent insisted the statistics bear him out.
Of the Trayvon Martin case, Nugent said, “Trayvon got justice.” He went on to say that Martin was a “gangsta wannabe” who had a “bloodthirst,” as evidenced by the fact that he was supposedly eager to “get into fights with people.” He said Martin showed racism in calling George Zimmerman a “cracka.”
Ted Nugent went on to say …
Nugent said Zimmerman got only a “sliver of justice.” Although Zimmerman was found not guilty, powerful people from President Barack Obama to Attorney General Eric Holder have targeted him, as have “Holder’s best friends,” the New Black Panthers. Nugent implied the president and Holder are trying to subvert the legitimate verdict in the case.
“It pains me deeply” to have to acknowledge that the president and some others in the administration are “just bad people,” Nugent said. He said he had hoped to be able to speak better of the country’s top officials.
White Maryland Man Beaten & Robbed by Three Black Men in Racially Motivated Hate Crime Attack Who Yelled …“This Is For Trayvon!”
Just curious, had George Zimmerman been found guilty, would “White” Hispanics been assaulting blacks in revenge attacks yelling, This is for George?
The vigilante Trayvon Martin mob was at it again this weekend. A Bethesda, Maryland white man was beaten and robbed by three black men. The 28 year old white man was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street, Northwest, in Adams Morgan in an obvious racially motivated, bias, hate crime. The three thugs yelled “This is for Trayvon” as they beat and kicked the man. Who really thinks that these thugs watched or have any concept of the evidence presented during the George Zimmerman murder trial?
A note to Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, President Obama, Eric Holder, the New Black Panther Party, the NAACP, blacks, the MSM and Democrats … This is what a hate crime looks like where some one’s Civil Rights are violated!!!
A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, “This is for Trayvon Martin,” before attacking him, police said.
The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.
Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Two of the men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, Alali said. The three perpetrators then took the victim’s iPhone and wallet and fled.
NBC – Washington: The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack. Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone. The police report lists the incident as robbery force violence, hate bias incident.
But this is what happens when you have an irresponsible MSM, President, Attorney General, faux Civil Rights agitators and Democrat party who insight the crowd and continue demands for justice. I hope Barack Obama and Eric Holder are happy with themselves as stated at NRO, where they “deliberately stoking resentment and tension, under the guise of leading a “national conversation” about race.”
Former NBA great Charles Barkley was 100% correct, when he said there are a lot of black racists as well.
Just curious, where is the outrage from the Civil Rights agitators over a white man getting the hell kicked out of him for revenge of the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict? Where is President calling for calm after he and Eric Holder threw gasoline on the racial fire?
Mark & Dana Michelle Gerstle, the Family Rescued by George Zimmerman Following SUV Rollover Crash in Florida Terrified They will Become Targets of Trayvon Martin Hate Mobs
An Obamanation where a heroic act goes unnoticed because of fear of the mob … This is despicable … I blame you President Barack Obama.
Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle, the family that was rescued by George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin, have told friend that they are terrified that they might become targets of the pro-Trayvon, “no Justice, no Peace” mob following their roll-over crash where Zimmerman came to their aid. The family believes that if they go public with their story that George Zimmerman rescued them from their turned-over SUV and make him appear to be a hero, they will be targeted by the hate mobs. How sad and worse yet, sick is this? George Zimmerman pulled the Gerstles’ and their two young children from their SUV after it rolled over in Sanford, Florida near the busy I-4 motorway. However, they are afraid to get involved and state publicly that Zimmerman is a hero for fear of the backlash. It is unbelievable that this is where we have gotten in this country thanks the the race-baiting by civil rights agitators Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, the New Black Panther Party, the MSM and President Barack Hussein Obama.
The family rescued by George Zimmerman after a rollover crash in Florida are terrified they will become targets for hate mobs who have made death threats to the neighborhood vigilante.
Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle told friends they do not want to talk publicly about Zimmerman for fear they will be accused of portraying him as a hero – and face a backlash from those who consider he got away with murder.
‘They are very grateful to Zimmerman for what he did, but they do not want to get involved,’ said a friend, who asked not to be named.
‘There is so much hatred directed towards him they have got to think about their own family. There are a lot of crazies out there. If they say anything in support of him it could backfire.’
The neighborhood watch volunteer, who to many is the most hated man in America after being acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin, helped save the family after a terrifying crash.
This poor family simply had the unfortunate circumstance of getting into an accident and then having George Zimmerman save them. The reaction from the unhinged LEFT and race-baiters … how dare Zimmerman do anything good. He can’t be a hero, he is the Devil. Zimmerman can’t be a hero, that does not play into the Left’s and racial agitators narrative that Zimmerman is an evil racist. However, the truth is that the Gerstle family was rescued by Zimmerman and for that they are most likely personally grateful. However, publicly they cannot say anything for fear of being attacked. I cannot say I do not blame them, but what a commentary of society today. Thank you Barack Obama for your lack of leadership, your lack of bringing people together and your lack of character. Instead of providing leadership, Obama brought back the past and fanned the flames of racism. But what should we expect from a life-long community agitator?
The Gerstle family from Port Orange, near Daytona Beach, have refused all requests to talk about their encounter with one of the most infamous men in America.
Mr Gerstle was in no mood to discuss Zimmerman when he arrived back at the family home today in a rental car.
He screamed at reporters from his garage saying: ‘Go away. I’ve got nothing to say.’
The family have lived in the single story, tan stucco home for the past 10 years.
Gerstle drove straight into his garage after speeding down the road past several TV trucks and film crews waiting to interview him.
He appeared enraged that media wanted to talk to him.
Congressional Black Caucus Members Support Jesse Jackson’s Threat To Boycott Florida Over Zimmerman “Not Guilty” Verdict in Death of Trayvon Martin
Yup, I must have missed it where President Barack Obama said in his speech for the Congressional Black Caucus to knock off their nonsense?
Right on key, the Congressional Black Caucus members of the House followed in lockstep the calls of the Rev. Jesse Jackson to boycott Florida in the wake of the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Um, boycott Florida for what exactly? The Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the liberal MSM, Democrats, race-baiters not mentioned and Barack Obama all got what they wanted when George Zimmerman was arrested and charged with the murder of Trayvon Martin after Sanford, FL police and prosecutors initially thought that he should not be. George Zimmerman was then tried by a jury of his peers of which both the defense and prosecution agreed to. Those that cried for Zimmerman to be charged and tried got what they wanted through political pressure. However, when they did not get the verdict they wanted, the politicians who I guess do not respect the legal system or the juries verdict.
What is most pathetic is that Jesse Jackson and the CBC are highjacking the George Zimmerman murder trial and Trayvon Martin’s memory for their own political agenda. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) said she’s also on board with the boycott of Florida and “I would support whatever it takes to get these stand-your-ground laws off the books.” Does anyone remember “stand your ground” being a part of the Zimmerman defense? The answer would be no. So what is this really all about? Those that want to boycott Florida don’t care about a fair and legal jury trial, they wanted George Zimmerman to be guilty no matter what the evidence was in the case. How classy of them.
A number of House Democrats are lining up behind the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s threat for an economic boycott of Florida following the not-guilty verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin.
The lawmakers, all members of the Congressional Black Caucus, are fierce critics of the process that led to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the fatal shooting last year of the Florida teenager. Exerting pressure on Florida’s economy as Jackson is suggesting, they said, could help overturn the state’s controversial stand-your-ground laws that many contend contributed to the tragedy.
“That’s probably the best strategy, because people understand dollars and cents,” Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) said Friday. “And they understand, if there’s a significant drop-off in revenues – at conventions, at Disney World and Universal Studios – that that will get the attention of the powerful.”
Uber-Lib Bill Maher Booed for Tasteless George Zimmerman Jokes & Florida on CBS ‘Late Show’ with David Letterman … “I say if he [Zimmerman] gets a gun, Casey Anthony gets a baby.”
Wow, when the audience at the lefty CBS ‘Late Show’ with David Letterman boo an uber-lib, you know you have a problem.
Last night in the ‘Late Show’ with David Letterman, far left comedian Bill Maher was booed for offering up some completely tasteless jokes regarding George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was just found “not guilty” of murder or manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin, and the state of Florida. When Letterman has stated that Maher was a minority owner of the NY Mets, Maher followed up with, “Better than being a minority in Florida.” Then the boos came. But not to be out done, Maher then said, “You know they want to give George Zimmerman a gun now. The Florida state law is that he can get his gun back. I say if he gets a gun, Casey Anthony gets a baby.” Cassey Anthony was the Florida tot mom who got away with the murder and was found not guilty in the death of her two year old daughter Caylee Anthony who was found less than a mile away from her home discarded in the woods. Guess what then happened at the Letterman show, the boos came again and even louder. The sad part is Maher actually had to ask why they were booing. How bad were these tasteless jokes and how far LEFT has Bill Maher gone, even the crowd at the far-Left David Letterman show did not approve.
Who would have ever thought the death of a 17 year old teen and the murder of a 2 year old child wasn’t funny?
Right after Maher was introduced by David Letterman, the host mentioned that he was a minority owner of the New York Mets.
“Better than being a minority in Florida,” responded Maher to boos from the studio audience.
“Why are they booing?” he asked.
A bit later, Maher said, “You know they want to give George Zimmerman a gun now. The Florida state law is that he can get his gun back. I say if he gets a gun, Casey Anthony gets a baby.”
This was quickly met with groans from the studio audience.
“What is with the booing tonight?” Maher asked.
Although No Riots in Sanford, FL after Zimmerman Verdict of ‘Not Guilty’ … About 125 People Riot in Oakland, CA Breaking Windows, Burning Flags & Defacing A Police Car With “Kill Pigs”
Nothing says honoring the memory of Trayvon Martin like vandalizing a police care and wring “Kill Pigs” on it … This is what happens when so-called Civil Rights leaders gin up emotions and holler “no justice, no peace” and a willing liberal media supports the agenda.
The authorities in Sanford, Florida had asked for the people to act responsibly in the wake of the George Zimmerman murder trail verdict. Although the individuals who were pro-Trayvon Martin were very disappointed and irate following the “NOT GUILTY” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, there was really no rioting as the media had hyped and probably some what hoped for ratings. Many people protested the verdict outside the court house in Sanford and were in disbelief; however, they did it peacefully with their voices. That cannot be said as to what happened in Oakland, California. As reported by the AP, in Oakland, pro-Tayvon Martin protesters broke windows at the Oakland Tribune and started small fires in the streets and the Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.
Twitchy has much more including many pics of the vandalism in the name of Trayvon Martin’s no justice.
a police car parked outside the 12th Street BART Station had its windows smashed, and protesters spray-painted “F- the police” and “Kill Pigs” on the side of the vehicle.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, there have been no arrests made following the night of rioting.
Protesters marched through the streets of San Francisco and Oakland on Saturday evening, upset at the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
In San Francisco, demonstrators marched through the Mission District after gathering at the 24th Street Mission BART Station. Hundreds marched down Valencia Street, chanting “Justice for Trayvon Martin.” [...]
Across the bay in Oakland, however, about 125 protesters gathered at Frank Ogawa Plaza outside City Hall before marching through downtown, starting small fires and smashing windows at the Wells Fargo Bank at 12th Street and Broadway and at several locations, including the Dogwood Bar, the Oakland Tribune, the Foot Locker shoe store and the Sears store. [...]
A BART police car parked outside the 12th Street BART Station had its windows smashed, and protesters spray-painted “F- the police” and “Kill Pigs” on the side of the vehicle.
… the crowd soon moved away from the intersection and headed east on 14th Street, stopping at a McDonald’s restaurant shortly after midnight to burn several flags and to spray-paint “Kill Zimmerman” and “FTP,” an anti-police epithet, on the side of Alameda County’s Rene C. Davidson Courthouse.

Keith Olbermann, The worst hire in the world …
The NY Daily News is reporting that Keith Olbermannn may be returning to ESPN. Olbermann worked at ESPN from from 1992 to 1997 and has expressed recently wanting to return. Are you kidding? Obviously the suits at ESPN have forgot what an obnoxious nuisance and PITA that Olbermann was when he first worked there. Hey ESPN, have you forgot when Olbermann referred to ESPN’s Bristol, CT headquarters as a “godforsaken place?” Some how this lib is a sought after talent after being ousted from MSNBC and Current TV, Really? I think this tells us more of the direction of ESPN that it does Olbermann. Seriously, why would a network supposed to be about sports hire a liberal moonbat? Count me on the list of watching alternative sports networks if this is the direction that ESPN plans to go.
So this is ESPN’s response to Fox’s August launch of Fox Sports 1?
The Daily News has learned the Worldwide Leader is in serious discussions with Olbermann to host a New York-based late night talk show on ESPN2, according to industry sources. The sources said the situation was still “very fluid” and no decision on green-lighting Olbermann or the project had been made.
If the move is made, it could blunt the buzz Fox hopes to generate with its August launch of Fox Sports 1.
This could be the first shot in an all-sports cable TV war. The sources added that ESPN is also considering unleashing a multimillion-dollar “SportsCenter” advertising campaign/counterattack that would air around the launch of FS1.
Still, the timing of an Olbermann hire would be strange. Last month, Turner Sports hired him to host its Major League Baseball postseason studio show on TBS.
So this is what ESPN thinks is going to restore their viewership, after so many other networks, including NBC and FOX creating competition with sports networks? They have been raiding ESPN’s talent of late in an effort to challenge ESPN for market share. It just goes to show you though that TV exec’s have to be among so of the most stupid individuals alive. Who on early would rehire such a malcontent like Olbermann and some one who is so polarizing with his liberalism. Why would anyone hire some one where automatically 1/2 of America would not watch. ESPN boss John Skipper and the rest of the suits might be the “worst person in the world”.
UPDATE I: Hire Olbermann, but this was the same network who chastised PGA golfer Paul Azinger who criticized President Obama for playing to much golf? And felt the need to apologize for long time sports announcer Brent Musberger’s comments about Miss Alabama Katherine Webb during BCS Champ broadcast … “You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman… Whoa!” Yet they will hire and walking-talking lighting rod for ignorant and inflammatory comments?
Forest Howard, Run …. Could we have Dean Scream II?
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who ran and lost in 2004 to be the Democrat presidential nominee, said that he is open to run for president in 2016. BRING IT!!! Could Howard Dean make life miserable for Hillary Clinton in 2016? Clinton seems to be the already coronated, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee. Of course we heard that same story in 2008. As for Howard Dean, he would run LEFT of Hillary Clinton and certainly appeal the far-LEFT part of the Democrat base and possibly pull Clinton further left that she wants to run. Dean stated, “She [Hillary Clinton] is not going to have a pass. There will be other people who will run.” Of course it is still to be seen if the others who run are viable A-list candidates.
Former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who in 2004 lost his bid to become the Democratic presidential nominee, says he’ll consider another run for president in 2016.
Dean — an outspoken liberal — told CNN’s Peter Hamby that he will run if other candidates aren’t addressing the issues that are important to him.
“I am not driven by my own ambition,” Dean said. “What I am driven by is pushing the country in a direction that it desperately needs to be pushed, pushing other politicians who aren’t quite as frank as I am who need to be more candid with the American people about what needs to happen. I am not trying to hedge. It’s a hard job running. It’s really tough. I am doing a lot of things I really enjoy. But you should never say never in this business.”
Democrat Howard Dean Says, ”Everyone Needs to Pay More Taxes, Not Just Rich”
Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder Sign “Thank You” Card to IRS for Targeting Conservative and Tea Party Groups
What happened to my country?
It is actually frightening that the following occurred in the United States and on a college campus to boot. Individuals actually signed a “Thank You” card to the IRS, thanking them fare targeting, harassing and slow walking the non-profit applications of Conservative and Tea Party groups. This was the brain child of Conservative pundit Caleb Bonham who said, “I was kind of hoping people would look at my card and laugh, but not endorse it.” “That was not the case.” One student said while signing the card, “I love discrimination.” WTF!!! Seriously, would this individuals
like love discrimination if they were the ones targeted? Oh, that would be different of course. And who in the hell loves discrimination of any kind? So let’s get this straight, those who signed and agreed with this thank you card agree that Big Government should have the power to destroy anyone who does not agree with them? Is that what this ignoramuses actually think? Of course not because they think they should be afforded a double standard. Maybe the next question should have been if they had ever heard of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB) signed an enormous thank you card to the Internal Revenue Service for its apparent harassment of conservative groups during the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection.
In the viral video, posted on YouTube Tuesday, conservative pundit Caleb Bonham asked students to sign the large card that read “Thank you IRS! Tea Party Deserves it!”
“I’m asking people if they want to sign my board thanking the IRS for targeting conservative tea party and religious organizations,” Bonham explained in the video.
Sadly, this is a result of the brainwashing that today’s youth has received and a completely hateful attitude and disrespect of others. Some how they are to be afforded the rights of “Freedom of Speech” but others are not. BTW, for all those who signed the ‘Thank You” card to the IRS … thanks for your names so that when the GOP is back in power, they can have the IRS target you. According to you, its perfectly AOK.
BTW II: How are those job prospects for all of you so-intelligent college grads these days?
