This was a big week for lies and nastiness from the mainstream media, political wonks and 
progressives. This was the week where Richard Cohen made us gag, The NYT made up a legislative initiative just so it could trash the GOP, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz proved that she really is just an android who is programed to say its the GOP’s fault and “radical tea party Republicans over and over again”

It was also the week where MSNBC’s Toure’ proved he didn’t have the slightest knowledge of political basics such as Senatorial elections are conducted on a state-wide base.

During the past seven days, the problems with Obamacare have been blamed on everyone except Obama include Republicans, the American People and Hillary Clinton; John Kerry lied about the negotiations with Iran, Scholastic eliminated Israel; and so much more.

Below are my favorite stupid media bias tricks from the last seven days.
Headlines are linked to the full article (and will open a new window). 
When it is a broadcast story the video/audio will also be found at the

Try not to read any of these with food in your mouth:
