Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 14th,2016

.. with an amazingly beautiful young woman …

.. I originally took actress Stacey Dash to be a bit of a space cadet . I was drastically wrong . She is very , very bright , very intelligent , and very courageous …

.. she sat down for an interview on the O ‘ Reilly Factor the other day . She was well prepared , and took quite a pounding from Bill . However , it was a sympathetic pounding , as she took it very well …

.. she is even more remarkable considering she  is an actress who is black and a conservative in Hollywood . You do not get any more lonely than that ….

… Well , Bowe Bergdahl is going to Be Busted [#court martial]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 17th,2015

.. well , the other night , retired Army Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer made one of his periodic appearances on ” the O ‘ Reilly Factor ” with Bill O ‘ Reilly . It usually makes news , but is not surprising news . In this case , boy , was it not the case …

.. [h/t — ReclaimOurRepublic.wordpress.com]..
.. [link] to the interview footage …

.. Colonel Shaffer broke the news that the Army has the report on Pvt. Bergdahl , and it has explosive news in the report . Boy , does it ever …

.. Pvt. Bergdahl and his legal counsel have been provided with a charge sheet [of multiple pages] that containes several charges against the soldier . The chief one is the news breaker : Desertion …

.. what is really outrageous is the battle between the Department of the Army and the ObamaCrap White House . The Army wants to ” bust ” Bergdahl ‘ s chops . They apparantely have the evidence that he is clearly guilty of desertion . They want to go ahead with the court – martial , no matter what . The ObamaCraps , as you might think , definitely do not want it , and for good reason …

.. their trade of Bergdahl for 5 terrorists has gone over badly in the Court of Public Opinion . It bombed , to be honest . Then this news pops up . This news would do grave damage to their reputations , as well as to the Democratic party as a whole . That would severely damage the Dem nominee in 2016 …

.. so be it …

… How Should You Question Miz Hillary ?? [#tough]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 18th,2014

.. tear her hide off , ideally .

.. she and Wilhelm der Fibmeister [her husband , Bill] have a lot to answer for .

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

.. also , sneak up on her . Hit her in a way that she does not expect [Diane Sawyer , ABC] , or hit her with a tough customer that most folks have little experience with [Bret Baier , FoxNews] , as Brent Bozell recommends ..

.. note — do not be surprised if / when she decides to appear on ” the O ‘ Reilly Factor . ” Bill O ‘ Reilly is as tough a customer as it gets to be a questioner . Remember Tim Russert . You had to prep for him , otherwise he would hit you , hone in on you , and then you were done . O ‘ Reilly can do the same thing , but in a sneakier way ….

… It Makes You Wonder [#About Media Bias] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 18th,2014

.. Sharyl Attkisson has left CBS . That leaves a very good investigative reporter out in the hustings as a free agent ready to be picked up by a another network …

.. she was a guest the other night on FoxNewsChannel ‘ s the O ‘ Reilly Factor . Bill O ‘ Reilly was interviewing her about her pursuit of stories while she was an active reporter at CBS …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blognews..

After introducing his guest, O’Reilly asked Attkisson about her investigation into the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.

The former CBS reporter asserted that she began to make inroads into the story but had to drop it:


Attkisson: I found out that we had to quit pursuing the story more or less due to lack of interest well before we found answers to a lot of questions. Including what about all the other cases besides the one you know as Fast and Furious that were also using similar strategies to transfer weapons down to Mexico. And how did this, if at all, play into a strategy the United States may be using to draw support or give support towards one of the cartels in Mexico against one of the others much like they had done in Columbia and other places.

O’Reilly: Playing one off against the other. You said something interesting that you had to abandon the story for lack of interest. Can you clarify that?

Attkisson: It just came to be that, I don’t think on the viewers’ part, but on the people that decide what stories go into the broadcast and what there is room for, they felt fairly early on that this story was over when I felt as though we had barely begun to scratch the surface. They didn’t ask me what was left to report. They decided on their own the story was done.

O’ Reilly moved to her investigation into Benghazi.


Attkisson: Benghazi I was assigned to look into about three weeks after the attacks happened by management, and pursued that aggressively, and as I felt we were beginning to scratch beneath the surface on that scandal as well which I think had many legitimate questions yet to be asked and answered. Interest was largely lost in that story as well on the part of the people that are responsible for deciding what goes on the news.

O’Reilly: So did they tell you, look, we don’t want you to spend any more time on this? Was it that direct?

Attkisson: No. It’s more as though there is no time in the broadcast. They really, really liked the story but you start to hear from, you know, other routes that “why don’t you just leave it alone,” “you know, you are kind of a troublemaker because you are still pursuing it.” It kind of goes from hot to cold in one day, sometimes. Where they are asking you to pursue something heavily and then it’s almost as if a light switch goes off and look at you all of the sudden, “Why are you bringing this story?”


O’Reilly: Is it possible because CBS News is third in the ratings that they are just doing stories that they think are going to get them audiences? Is that possible?

Attkisson: I suppose there could be differences of opinion as to what the audience wants to see. But I think there are larger things at play in the industry. Broadly there are overarching concerns about, I would say just fear over original investigative reporting. There is unprecedented, I believe, influence on the media, not just the news, but the images you see everywhere. By well- orchestrated and financed campaign of special interests, political interests and corporations. I think all of that comes into play.

Attkisson’s last big investigation at CBS was Obamacare:


Attkisson: I was asked by CBS to look into Obamacare and it had a similar trajectory whereby we broke some interesting stories that I felt we were uncovering some good information and making headway, but we and I feel like a lot of the media after several weeks of this kind of fell off the radar on the story to a large degree on the critical looks that we were taking, security issues, the lack of transparency, the lack of providing figures and information, that I think belonged in the public domain, belonged to us, that were being withheld, while being provided in some cases to corporate partners of the government being withheld from us, though.

…Just before Christmas came word that the top security official, the computer person who still works there at HHS, had refused to sign off and recommended, in fact, that this web site not go live because of all the security issues. That was not considered a big enough story, I suppose, is the way to put it by those who decide what goes on the air. I thought it was hugely important, because this is an insider, someone who works in the Obama administration who had made this assessment. If you look at having had something like that occur with a private corporation that proceeded to go online with all of these alleged security risks, I think the government would be very upset by that if the tables were turned. Here it was the United States government doing it.

… Sign Her ! [#Sharyl Attkisson]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 16th,2014

.. it is my opinion .

.. I do not know her politics . Ideally , with an investigative reporter , one should not need to know them . Sometimes , though , it is nice to know their approach and / or philosophy . Tim Russert is an example …

.. especially after I read his autobiography . Russert was an up-from-the bootstraps working class kid from Buffalo , NY . He worked his fanny off through high school , college , and law school , and became an up-and-coming political aide when he went into journalism , his first love …

.. even when he interviewed people , you knew where he was coming from . He was a tough interviewer , and his loss is deeply felt by many . I know that I do , even as a conservative . I wish that I could have met the guy , talked politics , growing up , Cleveland & Buffalo , football , and the mess that now is NBC Snooze , especially pMSNBC . Tim has to be rolling over in his grave at the antics at that bunch of hacks …

.. I hope that FoxNews signs Sharyl Attkisson . She is an excellent investigative reporter . Give her a small staff , a budget , and turn her loose . She would be worth it …

.. for those who do not know , she does have a website of her own . It is : SharylAttkisson.com …

… Bill O Reilly cooks POTUS …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 17th,2014

.. this one is from his Talking Points memo the other night …

.. it is about POTUS and his so – called ” executive action ” to change and supposedly update the overtime rules . Whether POTUS has the legal authority to do so is highly up to question …

.. Bill hammers POTUS for hypermanaging our country ‘ s economy over the last five years . He especially nails him for being an academic , a theoretician , who looks at the world as he wants to see it , instead of dealing with the world as it is …
