NewsBusters has a long history of loving when liberal comedians make jokes about other liberals. It’s even more embarrassing, however, when they think they actually get the jokes.
In a June 7 article, the always witless Noel Sheppard was giddy like a schoolgirl when documenting a joke by Stephen Colbert on his Comedy Central show, “The Colbert Report“:
On Thursday’s Colbert Report, the host actually said, “Obama is a tyrannical despot who ignores all the rules”
Somewhat surprisingly, Colbert began Thursday’s program with the revelations that the Obama administration had been looking at the phone records of millions of Americans.
Noel Sheppard knows how to rev up the outrage machine at NewsBusters. It’s his modus operandi, and he didn’t show any shortage of it today.
In a May 30 article, the Associate Editor, Sheppard, was aghast at the comparison a frequent MSNBC contributor made to Attorney General Eric Holder, during a discussion about the recent administration scandals:
On Thursday’s Martin Bashir show, MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson actually said – without any pushback from the host – that scandal-ridden attorney general Eric Holder is “the Moses of our time” [...]
*Sigh* Noel Sheppard has become the quintessential MSNBC heckler on the sideline that never misses an opportunity to attack his new found obsession… and I’m sure he takes pride in that.
In a May 29 piece, Sheppard boasted about the liberal networks low ratings for May:
As NewsBusters has been reporting for several months, MSNBC’s ratings have been in a freefall.
After attracting its lowest number of viewers in seven years a few weeks ago, the so-called “news network” is finishing out May with staggering year-over-year declines.
It doesn’t seem like anyone at NewsBusters cares about actually researching facts… or they just love maintaining the ignorance of their misinformed readership.
That case and point was made in a May 21 piece from Matt Vespa, who made a twofer today. First, he boasted about “Obamacare” losing support among union organizations:
As the media, by and large, ignores the train wreck that is on the horizon with ObamaCare, yet another union has jumped ship on the president’s health care overhaul. Back in April, you may recall, the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers officially said thanks but no thanks to the president’s plan.
Noel Sheppard never misses an opportunity to obsess over something MSNBC has done, usually launching jihads against them for being too liberal… now, it’s gotten to the point that he doesn’t even want them labeled as a news channel anymore.
In a brief May 21 piece, Sheppard arrogantly brags “As NewsBusters has been reporting, Americans are tiring of MSNBC” Yes, that’s right, because NewsBusters has its ear next to every American, all of whom are saying how they supposedly hate MSNBC… because they must hate them as much as Sheppard does.
To say Mr. Sheppard is overstating the impact his organization has on the opinion Americans have of MSNBC is being kind.
As citizens, we’re all used to the politicizing of tragedies being left to childish politicians, who attack their opponents so they can win elections. That low standard of human discourse was brought even lower, following one of the worst Tornado disasters the state of Oklahoma had seen in almost a decade and a half, courtesy of the country’s “liberal media watchdog“.
In a May 21 article, Noel Sheppard berated MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for his characterization of the recent tornado that ravaged the town of Moore, OK, claiming how “America’s media love to hype every serious weather event.“
He stated his main quibble with the liberal host from the outset:
On Monday, shortly after an F4 tornado demolished the town of Moore, Oklahoma, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir called it “perhaps the worst tornado in the history of the planet” [...]:
MARTIN BASHIR: We have been following breaking news from Oklahoma for two hours now, a situation that is still developing at this moment. A massive tornado in Oklahoma, Moore, Oklahoma, near Oklahoma City. The storm was ferocious, a powerful system that tour a swath through the region and has left untold destruction that rescue teams continue to sift through. Images of devastation that are becoming clearer by the minute. The place for politics today dominated by perhaps the worst tornado in the history of the planet.
Who would think even an outlet as politically egregious as NewsBusters would sink so low?
This is how Scott Whitlock titles his May 15 article whining about ABC’s Nightline host, Terry Moran:
Nightline Focuses on Actress’s Breasts, Shoves Obama’s Scandals Onto Twitter
