Washington, DC: The Leek News Service has learned that the “fake news” service, The Onion, has filed a federal lawsuit against CNN for infringement on their long-standing fake news practice. The lawsuit alleges that CNN has violated The Onion’s news genre of fake news by continually spreading fake news. “CNN’s continued use of fake news in its broadcasts is a clear infringement on our schtick” offered an unnamed Onion source. “CNN’s fake news has damaged our ability to write our fake news and makes it hard for our readers to really know which of our stories are fake.”

John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, schools this dufus from CNN. Mr. Coleman jumps on the introduction and calls it what it is…BS…and he is just warming up. Too many commentors accept the premiss. You gotta LOVE MR. COLEMAN!
Neither the lame-stream media nor the far left seem to know what to do about Fox News. They both agree to some old fashioned blocking of the free press, but Fox is just too big and too popular, and thus has too big of a soapbox. This latest folly from the Adulterated Press (AP) is cute, but worth parsing…
First the headline (with a link to the original story)…
…Now the story with my bold comments:
It is often very interesting to me how Hollyweird types and their rich liberal friends (i.e. Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, etc.) are all about liberal causes and how the rich should pay more. To date I have yet to read about one of them giving more to the federal government. In fact Warren’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, is being sued by the federal government for $366 million in back taxes. Perhaps the “Buffet Rule” should start with paying what you owe? I guess this FOO (Friend of Obama) doesn’t mind if taxes goes up since his companies don’t really pay anyway.
You may be please to find out that with over 9 percent unemployment (and that’s a low accounting of the real unemployment numbers), a slowing economy, inflation soaring, and greater unrest about the Obama Administration they have decided to shift their focus to the private sector to create jobs after having added over 140,000 federal jobs. Obama’s chief economist, Austan Goolsbee, appeared on CNN and made the announcement
“Corporations have become profitable again. What we need to do now is get the private sector stood up.”
The mainstream media (“MSM”) showed their true stripes again during their coverage of the hundreds of Tea Parties held yesterday. When confronted with a true grass-roots effort to protest excessive taxation and what is turning into an ever intrusive federal government, the MSM fell back on their typical, tired playbook. They tried to diminish the efforts of the planners and attendees like the elitists they are.
Over the years, Anderson Cooper had seemed to be different, but we probably saw the real Cooper yesterday. During his coverage of the tea parties and in response to a statement from David Gergen about the Republicans needing to “find their voice,” Cooper made the smug, off-color statement:
January 19, 2009 – Update: It is now estimated that the costs for the Obama inaguration will surpass $170 million ($49 million to be spent by the Federal Government and another $75 million by local governments who will seek reimbursement from the Federal Government. According to my math that is $124 million in tax dollars!). The article by ABC News did NOT call for this money to be spent on homeless, the poor, or starving people.
January 14, 2009 – Update: It is estimated that the costs for Barrack Obama’s inaguration will surpass $100 million dollars.
