An NBC graphic used in a report about how American students “lag behind” their European and Asian peers in math, science and reading:
In science, Americans are in “21th” place?
That was fast: Alec Baldwin’s Show Will Not Return to MSNBC.
Poor Alec. He’s slow to learn that saying every single itty bitty thing that pops into his head — sometimes in a really loud voice — isn’t always the best idea.
Here’s a graph showing the number of minutes the cable “news” outlets devoted to climate change between April 1 and August 13 this year. Note the stars on O’Reilly’s and Hannity’s shows. Those stars mean the coverage was dismissive of climate change (natch – hey, we’re talkin’ Fox).
Oh, and CNN is supposedly a flaming liberal channel, right? It looks like Erin Burnett’s show, OutFront, devoted about four minutes to the issue while Anderson Cooper didn’t touch it. Liberal? What a joke that is.
What a sorry state of affairs.
Wow. I hadn’t heard about the NRA-sponsored NBC show “Under Wild Skies” until today. It features NRA proponents shuttled into “wild” hunting grounds so they and shoot innocent animals in the face from just feet away.
Wanna see an elephant get blown away? Go here.
The show makes it all about gun:
“Positively lethal. Great to handle. Beautiful gun. And the 577 was made to shoot ivory.”

This goes in my Outrage Overload category.
Oh, and just hours ago NBC canceled the show. But what were they thinking when they debuted it? Hey, I know. They were PAID BY THE F’ING NRA.
Geezus America. You’re losing your mind!!!!!
OMG. Now they’re really insulting our intelligence:
NBC’s “Today” is turning to newborns for a programming stunt this week. Dubbed #BornTODAY, the stunt features correspondents and camera crews in maternity wards across the country tuning in as babies are being born, in some cases live, on-air.
I think “BoredTODAY” would be a better title.
Geezus, this is a new one: Ten people on the screen at the same time on CNBC today talking about the Nasdaq being halted:
I think this is a record. Oh wait no, it’s the Hollywood Squares!
No, seriously, the only thing we know at this moment is that the Nasdaq supposedly suffered “technical problems,” so here we have ten — TEN — guys speculating as to what “technical problems” means. Ridiculous.
Yesterday it was Headline News, today it’s MSNBC’s turn.
I guess they decide the location of a city by ah, throwing a dart?
On Tuesday’s Martin Bashir show:
