According to Media Matters blogger Eric Boehlert, the furor over the Benghazi terror attack that killed four Americans is meaningless hype from conservatives who simply want to hurt the president, since more people died in embassy attacks under President Reagan than Obama, Twitchy reported Thursday.
Boehlert issued his proclamations in three separate tweets, linking to his own blog post at Media Matters.
Christopher Marshall, a seven-year-old boy attending Driver Elementary School in Suffolk, Va., was suspended from school for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises, WAVY reported Monday.
“When I asked him about it, he said, ‘Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being a bad guy,’” Paul Marshall, the boy’s father, said. “It’s as simple as that.”
It seems that for Obama, some things are just more important than others.
During a press conference at the White House on Tuesday, the president said he was “not familiar” with reports that Benghazi whistle-blowers have been threatened by unnamed administration officials, the Weekly Standard reported. At the end of the press conference, however, the president ran back to the podium to praise Jason Collins, the NBA player who recently announced that he is gay, Jim Hoft said at the Gateway Pundit.
Despite Dzhokhar Tsarnaev‘s reported admission that he and his brother committed the Boston Marathon bombings, a petition at change.org claims the brothers are innocent and demands the surviving suspect receive a fair trial, Twitchy said Wednesday.
“We believe that within the chaos caused by the Boston Marathon explosion, two young men were wrongfully accused of something they did not do, and one of them has lost his life before even getting the opportunity of a proper trial,” the petition says.
In one of the most egregious claims made by propagandists in the Democrat-media complex, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell blamed the NRA for the slow investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings, The Weekly Standard reported Wednesday.
Keep in mind that no guns were used in the attack, but O’Donnell saw fit to blame the pro-gun group anyway.
On Wednesday, the FBI denied a flurry of reports from CNN and other media outlets that initially said a suspect had been arrested in the Boston Marathon bombings, The Blaze reported. Federal authorities said in a statement that media outlets should “exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.”
“Despite reports to the contrary there has not been an arrest in the Marathon attack,” Boston Police said in a tweet.
The refusal by many mainstream media outlets to cover the trial of abortion provider Kermit Gosnell prompted Republicans to call for more attention on the subject of abortion and media bias surrounding it in speeches on the House floor, The Hill reported Sunday.
“Our hope is that this will act as a wake up call,” Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., told The Hill.
There’s a rule regarding holes, and it’s quite simple: When you find yourself in one, quit digging.
But it seems that Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., never got the memo. Not only did she mock a senior citizen concerned about his safety, she claimed that magazines are ammunition that would disappear over time while speaking at a public forum on gun control in Denver on Tuesday.
During a one-sided discussion of the Republican Party’s perceived problems with race and statements made by Dr. Ben Carson, MSNBC declared that the GOP is “blinded by the white” with a graphic that can only be called racist, Twitchy reported Friday.
Touré Neblett, the liberal race-obsessed host who declared the word “crime” was racial code last September, continued his attack on Dr. Ben Carson, calling him the GOP’s “new black friend.”
On Sunday’s edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host David Gregory falsely claimed that 40 percent of all gun sales are done without background checks, Twitchy reported.
“But isn’t that preferable to a big loophole where you have all these — 40 percent of sales, private sales, one-on-one, where you’ve got no ability to trace it?” he asked NRA’s Wayne LaPierre.
