    If Dorner were a conservative or tea party member the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media would have done hundreds of stories about his politics by now. They will be relieved when he is gone so they won’t have to cover up their omission any longer.

    But to be fair to NBC news, they actually admitted today that he was an Obama/Pelosi lover….that’s some admission at least

    Still NO coverage from Fox news on Dorner. DBS is all over it with helicopter shots right over the gun battle… Rupert will be pissed…

    sorry dude, but I’ve had Fox News on all day, since like 10:45AM…Fox News has been wall to wall Dorner news…before you make your remarks, maybe you should actually turn on Fox News and look…

    As I said previously, FNC has been covering this (with audio and video) since at least 4:40 PM (EST). Maybe other news outlets began their coverage earlier but FNC is definitely covering this.


    Fox News has been covering it all day. that’s why I put in a DVD, I was tired of every channel telling us the same thing…we don’t know what’s going on, but here’s a picture we took earlier of the scene.

  • Stan T.

    I was so shocked around 4PM pacific time, when NBC admitted that the Dorner dude was a left wing loon…They admitted atleast that he was an Obama/Pelosi lover, they didnt give the whole list, including all the MSNBC hosts…I thought since he’s not a right winger, they’d just keep their mouths shut…but then, in all fairness, it was NBC news not MSNBC….

  • Mark2

    President Obama knocked it out of the park tonight.

    Even Charles Krauthammer said it was a very effective address.

  • usa8888

    Obama’s State of the Union address: FANTASTIC!! Even the moderate GOP was supporting him. I feel sorry for Rubio who is tryig to say Obama’s is trying to hurt the middle class. It is absud commentary like this that lost the election for the GOP. When will they learn????

  • Jeff

    The Republican message is the same…….

    Broken record……

    Blaa blaa blaa.

    Where’s the empty chair???

  • Jeff

    Marco can’t stop sweating and had to break character to drink water…..he looked frightened.

    Keep praying Marco!!

  • Jeff

    The water grab from Rubio was bizarre!!!

    I bet SNL make fun of that???

  • usa8888

    rubio is propped up on stage to talk the same tired old erroneous line that the American people are against. he probably is a big hit with the nearly extinct t-party—but what will that get you. The moderate GOP supported Obama’s speech–it would be hard not to. Hoppefully now the moderate GOP and the dems can something done….

  • Mark

    Rubio’s speech was so Oct 2012’ish

    Here is the breakdown….

    Obama this, Obama that, Obama, Obama, Obama, Obama. But hey although Obama sucks we want to work with him so he does all our ideas that lost us the past election.

  • usa8888

    Rubio’s speech was good comedy…and trite and meaningless….

    Pressure, if the blogs, right wing radio, FNC, stayed quiet than so would NBC.

    Believe me they don’t like being called the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media. We have to hound them and never let up. How long has this story been around and they mention his political leanings now. Now that they have mentioned it they will never mention it again.

    If the nut had conservative leanings they would do what I like to call saturation news. Dozens of stories and when they ran out of stories they would do stories that are similar so they could bring it up again.

    The most corrupt organization in the history of America.

  • Moncon

    I came home for lunch and Fox was covering the terrorist Dorner shoot out. Also saw an interview last night with a college friend who was surprised he pursued a career in law enforcement. Thought he was too left thinking to choose that career path, not that all cops are conservative he stated.

  • Raz

    I wish they’d add the Blaze to the mix, I’m curious what Becks channels viewership is

  • usa8888

    Rubio’s speech falls flat. Only supporters so far are Beck, Slimebaugh, and Trump….The American people line up behind Obama as do the moderate GOPers….

  • Sicilian Papa

    The corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media influence about 35-40% of population with their propaganda.

    Look at these numbers. The tea party is disapproved by a vast majority of Americans. These peaceful protesters were destroyed by the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media.

    The occupy movement had very high favorable numbers. Crime was rapid in this organization. The corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media omitted this from their reporting. The numbers came down some because the criminal activity leaked out. Their numbers where still better than the peaceful protesters called the Tea Party.

    Propaganda is a very powerful tool.

    They prop up O. in the face of terrible failure. Debt, unemployment, problems in Afghanistan, inflation. It works, we will always be the loser until we can destroy the credibility of the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media.

  • RedBarSoup

    called the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media

    GOD I so hope you have that as a copy and paste in Notepad or something, that’s all you know how to say.

  • Sicilian Papa



    I looked up sycophant in the dictionary and saw a picture of you. Funny I thought you were taller. You aren’t the most handsome fellow I ever laid eyes on either.

    You are a true believer. Never mind that iceberg up ahead.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Truth hurts, I write by hand every time. I proven 100% correct. That makes rewriting it every time so sweet!!!!
