Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 12th,2015

.. and , to be honest , I do not expect him to be back in the anchor chair .

.. [h/t — DrudgeReport.com]..
.. [link] to the flash blog report …

.. Williams has done too much damage to his reputation as it is right now . He can probably remain as a correspondent for NBC News at one of its bureaus . But , will he want to ? ..

.. Williams may want to move to another network , such as FoxNews . There at another post [and , another location] , he can continue his career [if he wants]…

… Brian Williams is in Serious Trouble [#FibGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 11th,2015

.. and his career is at stake …

.. whether NBC News will do anything about is really open to question . Ever since Washington Bureau Chief Tim Russert died in 2008 , it seems that NBC news as a whole has been an aimless and colossal mess . Scandaer scandal . A distinct lack of professionalism . A cable channel [pMSNBC] that has run wild with ultra liberalism to plain old out and out communism …

.. [h/t — m.Newsbusters.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post news …

.. Now this . Williams has been caught in a pattern of out-and-out lying about a significant event in his professional career . He continued to lie about it in public appearances and interviews down through the years . Finally , a local newspaper finally does its homework , and breaks through the wheat and the chaff to break a blockbuster of a scoop ..

.. Should Williams resign ?!?! Maybe . Should he be fired ?!?! He should be , but likely will not be . I think that he should quit ….

… Even Chuckles Todd Thinks this Miz Hillary business is Nuts …

NBC’s Chuck Todd: NBC’s Hillary Biopic a ‘Total Nightmare’

Posted By Bryan Preston

State-run media falls for another joke.

“This is why this miniseries is a total nightmare for NBC News,” Todd said [link] on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “We know there’s this giant firewall. We know that we have nothing to do with it. We know that we’d love probably to be as critical or whatever it is going to be, if it comes out.”

Todd added, though, that regardless of whether the Clintons or Republicans are upset with the portrayal, NBC News will pay the price.

“No matter what, only we are going to own it, because people are going to see the peacock, and they see NBC, and they see NBC News, and they think, ‘Well, they can’t be that separate,’ ” Todd said.

Well, also, the Today Show has all but abandoned real news in favor of entertainment and pushing NBC entertainment shows. So, that firewall has some holes.

Todd has a movie suggestion that the state-owned suits at NBC entertainment will never consider.

To any entertainment folks looking for a compelling political mini-series: try John Edwards

— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) August 8, 2013

You know who else would make a fun NBC feature? Bob Filner, Eliot Spitzer and Carlos Danger. Three pervy stooges.

… LameStremMedia Race Hustling Has Put George Zimmerman on Trial …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 14th,2013

the LameStreamMedia Race Hustling has Put George Zimmerman on Trial

[h/t pjmedia , bryan preston]

.. On the night of February 26, 2012, an altercation between two men in Sanford,
FL, left one of them dead. After the deadly encounter, Sanford police took the
lone survivor in, questioned him, weighed the evidence, and concluded that he
had killed the other man in self-defense. The police released him and identified
the two participants in the incident: Trayvon Martin, 17, who had been killed,
and George Zimmerman, 28, who had fired the shot that killed Martin. Sanford
police soon come under assault in the media for mishandling the case. Before
long, Washington gets involved.

..From Feburary 29 to March 8, 2012, nothing much happens in the case. On March 8,
though, the case gained national momentum when Tracy Martin, father of Trayvon,
holds a press conference calling on Sanford police to arrest Zimmerman and
charge him with murder. Two days later, on March 10, the Martin family gathered
at the Sanford Police Department to urge police again to arrest and charge
Zimmerman. Three days later, on the 13th, the Martin family asks Sanford police
to release the 911 call from the night of the shooting. On March 16, Sanford
police comply with that request and the 911 call from George Zimmerman to
dispatchers is released. Zimmerman is heard on the recording telling the
dispatcher about an unknown man walking through the gated residential community
in the rain. Zimmerman tells the dispatcher that based on his experience as a
neighborhood watchman, the unknown man appears to be up to “no good.” The
community had been plagued by break-ins. Zimmerman says that the troublemakers
always get away.

.. Releasing the 911 call, it turns out, is the pivotal moment in events after the
shooting. Had the mainstream media handled the 911 call responsibly, there is
every reason to believe that George Zimmerman would not be standing trial right
now and the nation would not be worrying that the outcome of his trial might
cause race riots.

.. The mainstream media did not handle that call responsibly, at all. Instead of
airing the call as it was made on the night of February 26, NBC News deceptively
edited it to make it appear that Zimmerman targeted Martin because the teen was
black. The image of a race-based killing now solidified, it’s only a matter of
time before the so-called “post-racial” president and his allies turn Martin’s
death into a usefully divisive racial political football, in a presidential
election year.

.. The damage from that false edit was only beginning. NBC News plays its false 911
call edit on the Today show and its other properties. The New York Times on
March 22 calls Zimmerman a “white Hispanic.” The rest of the media amplify the
false racial narrative. ABC News releases a video purporting to show no wounds
on Zimmerman at all, and later admits “error” while releasing a video clearly
showing wounds and blood on Zimmerman’s head consistent with his self-defense
story. At every step of the way, mainstream media “mistakes” and “errors” have
consistently built up the false narrative that Zimmerman targeted Martin and
killed him because he was black.

.. The media successfully fabricate the “armed white adult versus unarmed black
teen narrative,” and soon enough the zeitgeist turns decisively against
Zimmerman. The FBI and Justice Department announce that they are opening
investigations into the shooting on March 19. Reverend and MSNBC host Al
Sharpton holds a rally on March 22 in Sanford demanding “justice” and reportedly
10,000 show up. In Sharpton’s rally, NBC News and its properties have clearly
crossed the line from dishonest journalism to open one-sided advocacy. Two days
later, the race hustle is well and truly on, as Rev. Jesse Jackson arrives in
central Florida to join Sharpton in calling for “justice.” On March 23,
President Barack Obama weighs in, scolding America to engage in “soul-searching”
while saying that if he had a son, he would probably have looked like Trayvon
Martin. Obama’s remarks, delivered in the Rose Garden at the White House,
elevate the shooting past the point of no return. Charges against Zimmerman are
inevitable, lest Republican-controlled Florida face the Holder Justice
Department and a full-frontal media assault. At this point, the media and race
hustlers are sparing no quarter. Taxpayer-funded PBS simply calls Zimmerman
“white” on April 10 in a segment hosted by Gwen Ifill, who is black.

.. Fast forward more than a year and Obama has been re-elected while “white
Hispanic” Zimmerman is on trial facing second degree murder charges. Last week
the prosecution put on its case, and it turned out to be almost entirely helpful
to Zimmerman’s defense. His wounds, which ABC News had tried to cover up in its
own deception, were consistent with the testimony he gave to Sanford police
immediately after the shooting, when he told police that Martin, larger and more
athletic than Zimmerman, had gotten on top of him and was beating him and
smashing his head into a sidewalk to the point that Zimmerman reasonably feared
for his life. Zimmerman told police that he only shot Martin in self-defense.

.. The only clear evidence of racism in the case came from prosecution witness
Rachel Jeantel, who testified that Martin called Zimmerman a “creepy-ass
cracker” during a phone call shortly before the shooting. Witness John Good was
first on the scene after the shooting, and as a prosecution witness told the
jury that he had seen Martin on top of Zimmerman delivering a “ground and pound”
to the smaller man. Every other witness in the trial, with the exception of
Martin’s mother, has given testimony that in one way or another backs up
self-defense and introduces more than reasonable doubt that Zimmerman is guilty
of murder in any degree. Martin’s mother testified that she hears her son
screaming for help on the 911 recordings of the fight. But other witnesses
testified that the voice belongs to Zimmerman. Testimony about the 911 calls,
then, is a wash. The prosecution’s case has introduced enough reasonable doubt
on the murder charge that Zimmerman ought to be acquitted and go free. He could
still face a civil suit from Martin’s family, where the evidence standards are
lower and the outcome of the criminal trial could be useful to the Martin
family’s lawyers as they craft a civil case against Zimmerman.

… Eric Holder Must Go !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 24th,2013

.. Eric Holder is beyond redemption as Attorney General . He is a post – partisan and pre – partisan party hack . How he got the job , I

English: Eric Holder, Attorney General Nominee

Eric Holder, Attorney General (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

cannot understand  . However , he did , and it is abundantly clear .

.. He must go .

.. He should offer his resignation  .

.. If he does not , POTUS should fire him .

.. if POTUS does not fire him , Congress should impeach him . Then , the Senate should and must try him and convict him of the charges theirein . As a result , he would then be removed from office . Hopefully , he would be then be banned from public office for good . One can hope .

… In case you wonder why , this snippet from NBCSnooze proves my point …

 

.. Attorney General Eric Holder signed off on a controversial search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator” in violations of the Espionage Act and authorized seizure of his private emails, a law enforcement official told NBC News on Thursday .

.. The disclosure of the attorney general’s role came as President Barack Obama, in a major speech on his counterterrorism policy, said Holder had agreed to review Justice Department guidelines governing investigations that involve journalists.

.. Rosen, who has not been charged in the case, was nonetheless the target of a search warrant that enabled Justice Department investigators to secretly seize his private emails after an FBI agent said he had “asked, solicited and encouraged … (a source) to disclose sensitive United States internal documents and intelligence information.”

.. Obama’s comments follow a firestorm of criticism that has erupted over disclosures that in separate investigations of leaks of classified information, the Justice Department had obtained private emails that Rosen exchanged with a source and the phone records of Associated Press reporters.
