A Message From New Left Media

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2010 by Ro

 

Chase and Erick from New Left Media attended the Tea Party/Circus in Washington DC this past weekend.

 

On March 16, 2010, Tea Partiers from around the country gathered (in disappointing numbers) in front of the Capitol building for their final protest against health care reform. Also in town, appropriately, was Barnum & Bailey’s actual circus. The protestors voiced their usual conspiratorial concerns about healthcare reform: that it was a government takeover and more government, of course, equals less freedom; that it would euthanize seniors too expensive to treat; and that the bill would sink the nation into irrecoverable debt, despite its actually reducing the deficit by more than $100-billion over the next ten years. Averse to facts, no one interviewed was able to cite evidence for their false beliefs about the reform proposal, and instead suggested we seek the “truth” from Glenn Beck and Fox News.

THE PROPOSAL
The healthcare reform proposal being advanced in congress, while imperfect, would bring long overdue changes to a broken system. Far from being rushed, the proposals that make up this reform have been debated for years, and this congress has been working on a bill for many months. It’s time for an up or down vote on reform.

The proposal will expand healthcare access to over 30-million uninsured Americans, make healthcare more affordable for everyone, hold insurance companies more accountable, end discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions, and help stabilize our budget and economy by reducing the deficit by over $100-billion in the next ten years.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
You can make a difference in the health care debate without leaving your bedroom. So stop typing that narcissistic Facebook status, pause your Mafia Wars game, and actually do something in reality to advance the cause you support by calling your representative. This is so easy. Many people are timid about making phone calls, but a phone call to your representative now could save you a series of phone calls to an uncooperative insurance company in the future. Too lazy to look up your representative’s number? This website makes it even easier–it will find the number, call it for you, and then call your cell phone to connect you. Tell your representative’s office that you support comprehensive health care reform, and urge them to support the public option.

Your Representative needs to hear from you NOW – call them now and tell them to vote YES!

American Idol producers want Howard Stern to replace Simon

Posted in Entertainment, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2010 by Otto

NY POST: “American Idol” producers are eager to hire Howard Stern to replace Simon Cowell as the show’s tough-talking judge, sources tell Page Six.

An insider said that producers of the hit Fox show say Stern, America’s highest-paid radio personality, is their top choice to take over from Cowell, who leaves at the end of this season. They approached the King of All Media after he repeatedly mentioned on-air that his exclusive Sirius XM Radio deal expires next January and he was open to other offers. Cowell was paid $50 million a year.

A source connected to “Idol” said, “It’s one of the few shows that could compete with Stern’s $100 million-a-year Sirius contract, and ‘Idol’ bosses think he’d be even nastier than Simon.

“They know he would be great TV and would clash with the other judges such as Ellen DeGeneres and the contestants. ‘Idol’ will do what it takes to sign him.”

But a second source told us Stern hasn’t made the “Idol” talks easy, and has been giving out mixed messages about his intentions.

“Despite what he’s been saying on-air, Howard isn’t ready to leave radio and would like to stay on at Sirius,” the source said. “We believe this is a ploy to make Sirius pay up and keep him on his huge contract. But if Sirius can’t pay him the money he wants, he may negotiate to film ‘Idol’ on the side.”

Stern is also believed to be reluctant to commit to a show that would require him to tour the US as a judge and spend much of the year in Los Angeles.

He recently said, somewhat cryptically, “I was approached by a major TV network to take over a TV show and leave here and do that next year — and I did turn it down . . . I’m not even sure if I want to be working. I’m waiting to see what happens.”

This will never happen. Even if they moved the show to New York, Stern would not travel around the country to listen to the initial auditions. Stern would love to take the job, considering he is into the show more than a prepubescent girl. I think he would be awesome on it, insulting Seacrest, Ellen, Randy, and most likely key Fox executives by the second show.

Let’s not forget this is another show or concept that Stern claimed to conceive, because he used to have 3 record producers on his show to listen to amateur bands, and have them fight for a contract. Of course Stern has interviewed Kevin Bacon, therefore by 6 or less degrees of separation, Stern has invented every concept ever used on TV since Stern’s first shows on college radio. He will inform you of this fact repeatedly as well.

This is nothing but a PR move by FOX to promote Idol, on a FOX owned newspaper, as a viable show. This comes on the heels of the mass realization that the show has grown stale, lost it’s key talent, and was gay from the beginning. Not homosexual gay, but just gay like having sex with another man in his anus.

This is the last you will hear of this, unless you listen to The Howard Stern Radio Show, where he will talk about it repeatedly, and refer to it until he retires.

Sean Hannity admits John Stewart was right about bogus footage. (VIDEO)

s-JON-STEWART-large

Jon Stewart, or should I say his writers, totally caught Fox News trying to misinform their already misinformed viewers. Michelle Bachman (R etard) held an event in Washington DC, and while she was speaking to Hannity about it, footage of the 9/12 Rally was played with the tag “earlier” in the upper left corner of the screen. While Bachman (R eally nuts) estimated that 20,000-45,000 people attended the event, the Washington Post reported it was actually more like 10,000.



Well I guess when caught red-handed, Hannity had to admit the footage was false. However he said it was a mistake, and unintentional. Umm, yeah Sean, the only people that would believe that crap are the people that, well, watch your show.

Faux News: Rove Calls Biden ‘Liar’

Did I do that?

Did I do that?


Republican strategist Karl Rove called Vice President Biden a “liar” on Thursday, dramatically escalating a feud between Biden and aides to former President George W. Bush over Biden’s claims to have rebuked Bush in private meetings.

“I hate to say this, but he’s a serial exaggerator,” Rove told FOX News. “If I was being unkind I would say liar. But it is a habit he ought to drop.”

Rove added: “You should not exaggerate and lie like this when you are the Vice President of the United States.”

FAUX

Biden is a lot of things. A liar is not one sir. I would make a pot and kettle joke, but he kettle is not black. Not that there is anything wrong with black kettles. But the Pot is dead black. Karl Rove calling anyone a liar is like.. (INSERT JOKE]
