The Best of Liberal Worst for 2009

Some highlights of the worst liberal moments of 2009. Sometimes, despite the importance of the struggle to keep America intact, you just have to laugh at the sheer foolishness of some on the left.

10. Why did this question even get asked of Martha Stewart?

9. If this was the best Palin could do to slam McCain, then she's just lame and not worthy of all that liberal bashing she takes. Either that or she really is a threat to the left and they're desperate to try to find some wedge issue to tamp down her rising approval ratings;

8. Janeane Garafalo or Janeane GarAWFULo?

7. Is this guy supposed to be the left's version of Glenn Beck? Ed Schulz has a long way to go to get there. how about starting with some facts instead of liberal fear-mongering hyperbole?

6. Chris Matthews being Chris Matthews still feels the leg tingle, and wonders why the rest of the press doesn't continue to share his Obama enthusiasm enthrallment. Don't worry Chris, many media types still do.

5. Yet again, MSNBC. Strategic editing making Tea Party protesters look violent and deranged and racist. Here they get called out on it.

4. Katie Couric wins A Gracie Award and a Cronkite Award for nailing Sarah Palin in a biased, edited and damaging interview that achieved it's goal - to knock the McCain-Palin ticket out of contention for the Presidency. If the celebration of a biased act doesn't say it all about the media and their motivation, I don't know what does.

3. The war on Tea Party Protesters extended from calling them Teabaggers, to outright misrepresentation of the size of the protests on 9/12 being in the tens of thousands rather than the hundreds of thousands that clearly were in attendance. ABC reported the number at 71,000 at one point. According to the website Ihatethemedia,
MSNBC reported, “thousands have turned out, some have said tens of thousands.” The Washington Post estimated “tens of thousands.” ABC figured between 60–70,000 protestors. The New York Times initially described it as a “sea” of people before stating, “The demonstrators numbered well into the tens of thousands, though the police declined to estimate the size of the crowd.” According to, there were “as many as two million protestors.” CBS, CNN and FOX all reported on the Tea Party but declined to provide estimates.
But look at this schema from USA today on the Obama inauguration crowd.

And then look at this photo of the 912 event. You don't have to be a math wizard to see that it's more than 70,000.

Thankfully, someone, Mail Online in the U.K., has a more reasonable number, and a great article to boot.

2. CNN Reporter Susan Roesgen trying to lecture a protester instead of getting the story and listening to an opinion. You just know she wouldn't have done the same thing to a Bush protester. Reports report, they don't argue with the news subject. That's got to be part of "Journalism 101", no?

Then again - we should have known her orientation already;

So should have CNN.

1. Newsweek's Evan Thomas sees Obama as God. Simply beyond the pale.

  1. Love this post!

    I'd never seen the grumpy CNN interviews... that was interesting.

    By the way... for some reason I can't view your blog in Firefox. Other blogger sites are okay but yours I have to load in Internet Exploder.
