MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry went off on a tangent in a recent broadcast, ranting about the racist overtones of a word that's been used for years by both sides of the political aisle -- Obamacare.
Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. That's a fact. But President Obama, in an interview last week with sycophant Chris Matthews, now says the entire scandal was made up by the media.
Chris Matthews may still get a tingling sensation whenever he listens to Barack Obama, but for millennials, the thrill is gone. A new Harvard Institute of Politics poll finds the president's favorability rating underwater among those between the ages of 18 to 29. Not surprisingly, once-devoted youthful fans have been turned off by Obamacare.
Chris Matthews reacted to the death of Nelson Mandela Thursday night by saying that the Republican Party is less patriotic than South Africa's white apartheid advocates.
The president of South African said Friday that Nelson Mandela's body will be taken to his ancestral village of Qunu where he will be buried on Dec. 15 alongside three of his deceased children.
President Obama Thursday portrayed the IRS targeting of tea-party groups as an innocent attempt at efficiency by bureaucrats that went awry, and he expressed surprise that people were outraged by the episode.
Timed to coincide with Bill of Rights Day, and coming a day after the first anniversary of the Newtown shootings: it's "Guns Save Lives Day," organized by one Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. He has made some major national broadcast advertising buys — "hundreds of thousands of dollars" worth, he says — to promote this newly designated day, and its very specific aim.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin responded Thursday morning to Martin Bashir's resignation from MSNBC, saying it's "refreshing" that so many in the media criticized the former host for inflammatory remarks against her.
While Sarah Palin quietly continued her national tour to promote her new book "Good Tidings, Great Joy," MSNBC host Martin Bashir quietly resigned from the network Wednesday, three weeks after broadcasting blatant slurs against the former Alaska governor.
After five years of stimulus schemes ranging from federal bailouts and a trillion-dollar stimulus package to the Cash for Clunkers program, Americans have yet to enjoy the "Recovery Summer" that they were once promised. Now, President Obama is promoting food stamps as the next great form of economic stimulus.
Just weeks after MSNBC host Martin Bashir issued a foul attack against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on his show, the outspoken progressive announced he is resigning from the troubled network.
MSNBC's Martin Bashir, who recently rocked national headlines with a broadcast suggestion of defecating in the mouth of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, has been noticeably missing from his Monday-night shows — but he's only on vacation, his network insisted.
It's complicated: The public is weary of the U.S. role as the world's policeman, but it also frets about the nation's declining prestige on the global stage and disapproves of both President Obama's foreign policy practices and any attempts at nation building overseas. Yet Americans approve of aggressive participation in the world economy and favor drones in the military arsenal.
"Up Late With Alec Baldwin" has been canceled by MSNBC following the host's homophobic outburst at a New York City photographer earlier this month.
For many Americans, Thanksgiving could be met with worry on how to put the turkey on the table.
