Happy Belated Birthday, President Obama

by Administrator on August 5, 2009

I know we’re a day late with this, but please accept our belated Happy Birthday wish President Obama, along with this touching tribute to your life by your fan, Glenn Beck. We hope we’re invited for cupcakes (and a beer?) next year.

Thanks to Cody Johnson for the heads up.

That was from Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor, in her Judge Mario G. Olmos Law and Cultural Diversity Lecture at the University of California Berkeley School of Law in 2001.

Now, go and read the Alternate Universe Quote of the Day to see how it would sound if John Roberts made a similarly racist quote.

Twidiot of the Day

by Administrator on May 24, 2009

Our Twidiot of the Day is @carbonoffsetnow.

“Tweeting is eco-friendly! Tweeting is fun and it’s nice to meet new people.”

Well, isn’t that special?

“Eating raw fruits and vegetables is a good way to go. No crops on the market today are genetically engineered to increase crop yield.”

But I’ll bet your bicycle has a bumper sticker about feeding the starving masses in Africa.

“It’s good karma to recipricate [sic] friendship! When we work together with the universe everyone is happy.”

Do you drink your Kool-Aid straight, or do you lace it with something psychedelic?

Donald Trump defended Miss California Carrie Prejean at a press conference today and announced that she will get to keep her crown.. Then Prejean demonstrated a kind of eloquence and dignity with which Perez Hilton is obviously unfamiliar.

One of the first things Trump said at his press conference was that Carrie’s views on gay marriage are identical to those of President Obama: they both support benefits, equal rights, and civil unions for same-sex couples, but oppose a federal law allowing gay marriage.

Trump said the supposedly “racy” photos of Carrie are nothing more than standard modeling photos and that the “lurid” photos in circulation are PhotoShop phonies.

But the real highlight of the event was Prejean’s impassioned and eloquent speech on what she has been through, her values, and for her desire for free speech and the respect for diverse views by all.

We sat glued to the TV set in awe.

Let us be the first to say it: Carrie Prejean for Congress. Or Fox News. Or whatever the hell this wonderful young woman wants out of life.

Way to go Donald, way to go. Carrie ripping Perez Hilton as we write this.

Thank God for politicians like Joe Biden and Howard Dean. Sometimes, the truth just slips out of their mouths, and when we are lucky, their words are recorded for the liberal media to ignore and conservative alternate media to shout out. Today, former Vermont governor and former DNC Charmain, Dean obliged.

We had CNBC on in the background as we were writing our IHTM stories this morning and heard Howard Dean telling talk show host Jason Lewis to “stop using his talk radio voice.” Our ears perked up and then we heard one of the most honest lines ever to come out of the mouth of a liberal lawmaker yet. Here’s what he said (minute 5:00):

“I think we’ve had quite enough capitalism in the last eight years.”

Remember when the media jumped all over McCain and Palin during the election for suggesting the left and Obama were socialistic? Well…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PcXTUH9Kb0Whew, what a relief! A whopping 95% of the Taliban we are fighting in Afghanistan are not “incorrigible.” In an update to our story Tuesday, Obama may reach out to “moderate” Taliban, we have a clip of Joe Biden clarifiying what Obama meant by “moderate Taliban.” We think his boss is, once again, not thanking ol’ Joe for his help.

Chavez to Obama: Be my socialist homeboy

by Administrator on March 6, 2009

<b>We don't need no stinkin' constitution bigger than this!</b>

We don't need no stinkin' constitution bigger than this! Either do you America.

President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela has just called upon President Obama to help lead the world out of the global recession by joining the project of “21st century socialism” of which Chavez is the self-proclaimed leader.

Speaking to a group of workers in the Venezuelan state of Bolivar, their Dear leader directed this comment to our Dear Leader: “Come with us, align yourself, come with us on the road to socialism. This is the only path. Imagine a socialist revolution in the United States/”

Far-fetched? Not to Chavez: “Nothing is impossible. Who would have thought in the 1980s that the Soviet Union would disappear? Nothing is impossible. Who would have thought in the 1980s that the Soviet Union would disappear? No one,” he said. “That murderous, genocidal empire has to end, and some day there has to come a leader … who interprets the best of a people who also include human beings who suffer, endure, weep and laugh.”

Reporters and anchors in the newsrooms of America must be bewildered. On the one hand, it is music to their ears to hear the call to socialism here in America, coming on so strong and so soon after they collectively installed their president. On the other hand, there aren’t a lot of reporters reporting in Venezuela, now are there?

Fox News producer busted for child porn, in porn himself

by Administrator on February 28, 2009

bruns-sutraWhat the hell? You all remember the story Fox News Producer Aaron Bruns arrested on child porn charges, right. We don’t know how we missed it this week, but on Monday the Kenneth in the (212) blog uncovered (NSFW)–so to speak–that Aaron Bruns had a starring role in the soft-porn instructional book entitled The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Supercharged Kama Sutra Illustrated.

We’re not going to show the NSFW photos here. But, we did clean up one photo that shows you an interesting Kama Sutra move with a stick. We know it’s Saturday, but being the curious guys and gals we are, we called in the IHTM staff this morning to try that one out, but only ended up hurt ourselves. Guess our moms were right about poking our eyes out. I suppose we’ll need to buy the book for instructions.

bruns_censoredFor those of you pervs out there that really want to see the most revealing photos you can follow one of the links at Kenneth in the (212)’s blog. We’re not putting that link or those photos here. But guys, be forewarned, these are, uh, more the type of photos that a female would prefer to see, if you know what we mean.

And one final note. Those of you gloating liberals we have heard from who laughed that Aaron Bruns was a Fox News employee should take note that it is reported that he is a liberal. Not that we care, a child porn guy is a child porn guy. But some people seem too care.

McCain chooses Twitter to reveal Top 10 Porkiest Projects

by Administrator on February 28, 2009

McCain, a lifelong opponent of earmarks, released his list of the top ten porkiest projects in the Omnibus Spending bill the Congress is about to pass. Did he hold a press conference or release a statement to the press? No, instead, he went to the new media–but not Facebook or Youtube. He choose the new rising star in social media, Twitter. He merely made a tweet yesterday that began with “”Tmr I am gonna tweet the TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS in the Omnibus Spending bill the Congress is about to pass”. And his 110,000 followers were instantly alerted, who in turn most likely passed it on to millions of their followers within minutes.

And today he released them. Here is John McCain’s Top 10 Porkiest Projects list:

#10. $1.7M “for a honey bee factory” in Weslaco, TX

#9. $475,000 to build a parking garage in Provo City, Utah

#8. $200,000 “tattoo removal violence outreach program to could help gang members or others shed visible signs of their past” REALLY?

#7. $300,000 for the Montana World Trade Center – enough said

#6. $1 million for mormon cricket control in Utah – is that the species of cricket or a game played by the brits?

#5. $650,000 for beaver management in North Carolina and Mississippi”

#4. $2.1 million for the Center for Grape Genetics in New York – quick peel me a grape.

#3. $332,000 for the design and construction of a school sidewalk in Franklin, Texas – not enough $ for schools in the stimulus?

#2. $2 million ‘for the promotion of astronomy’ in Hawaii – because nothing says new jobs for average Americans like investing in astronomy”

#1. $1.7 million for pig odor research in Iowa”

We’re sure the traditional media is aghast at not receiving a call first. Well, they all better sign up and start following the important people on Twitter. Like us at Twitter.com/ihatethemedia.

Couric: Joe Biden is the white guy!

by Administrator on February 26, 2009

As CBS introduced coverage of President Obama’s first address to Congress, CBS’ Katie Couric, overwhelmed with the excitement of “a little diversity” pointed out female Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and then noted that Vice President Joe Biden was “the white guy.”

Now hold on a cotton picking minute, Katie! We thought that after electing Barack Obama president, we had entered into a post-racial society. We thought pointing out a person’s color was a thing of the past. But, sadly, it looks like the “white guy” is still someone to be pointed at.

Incidentally, just before the Giveaway To America speech began, “Don’t Mess With Joe” Biden leaned over and whispered to Pelosi. An IHTM staff member well-versed in lip reading claims she caught Biden saying, “Did you hear that Bobby Jindal is on after Barack? Make’s me hungry. How about we run down to 7-Eleven or Dunkin Donuts after this?”

It was either that or something completely different. We’re not quite sure.

John Gibson: Huffington Post better lawyer up!

by Administrator on February 23, 2009

John Gibson has come out firing against everyone involved in creating, posting and circulating the now infamous, doctored audio clip that leads listeners to believe Gibson had attributed the “bright blue scrotum” of an escaped monkey to Attorney General Eric Holder.

“Nobody, nobody involved in this should rest easy right now,” Gibson said. “Hearst Argyle, the multi-billion dollar television ownership group, whose employee John Sanders actually created the fake tape, Arrianna Huffington whose Huffington Post passed the fake quote on to the rest of the world, TVNewswer, the TV industry gossip blog, which also acted as a conduit–they all should think about lawyering up. I am not done with this.”

Update: We just found this interview from last Friday’s Breibart.TV’s “B-Cast ‘Anatomy of a Smear’: How the ‘Doctored’ John Gibson Audio Was Revealed.” In this video, the hosts are joined by Johnny Dollar (of Johnny Dollar’s Place) and Steve Krakaeur (of TV Newser). Plus they featured their extended interview with the TV reporter who ‘doctored’ the audio on his John Gibson YouTube post.

Buffalo Beheading story with ironic Muslim Matrimony ad next to it.

Buffalo Beheading story above with ironic Muslim Matrimony ad next to it. Click image to see full size, full screen.

About ten days ago, an ad for “Muslim matrimonials” appeared right next to our story about the Muslim TV executive who beheaded his wife. You can see the hilarious juxtaposition on the screen capture above. Click the image or here for a full size, full screen image.

At first we thought our internet advertising provider had merely misinterpreted the context of the key words in the story — Muslim, husband, wife – and placed the ad there by mistake. But we’ve changed our minds. Because these are the smartest companies in the world, damn it, and they don’t make mistakes.

We’ve been deeply touched by this heartfelt effort to help Muzzammil Hassan find love again.

We hope he can find a life with a new woman. Or 25 to life. Whichever comes first.

Chris Matthews gets tingles up leg listening to Barack Obama. This morning, we at IHateTheMedia.com got tingles up our legs too, but not for the reasons Mathews gets as a result of his mancrush. Ours came when we watched CNBC’s Rick Santelli begin what is being called a “Traders’ Revolt” on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange with fellow traders cheering him on.

We absolutely love it, so we’ll justify playing it here for you to point out the kind of “mad as hell” reporting that we’d like to see more of.

Reliving the Dream of Muzzammil Hassan

by Administrator on February 17, 2009

The story of Muzzammil Hassan beheading his wife Aasiya has been purposefully suppressed or under-reported by the mainstream media since the the horrific murder was committed last Thursday in Buffalo, New York.

We know why, of course. It’s because Hassan is a Muslim-American whose mission was to improve the image of Muslims in the United States, and even with the obvious irony of the situation, the press just won’t let a good story get in the way of their agenda. So let’s play along, and instead of telling you more of how Aasiya’s head was knifed off in a manner not exactly in the custom of Americans (yeah, shoot us for saying it), let’s instead just shut the hell up about this unfortunate moment of second-degree rage, and relive the dream of Hassan’s network by relaxing, sitting back and watching this 2004 interview by NBC’s Brian Williams.
