CBS 60 Minutes Adds Gasoline Engine Sound Effects To Tesla Vehicles

(Hat Tip: IHateTheMedia)

CBS admitted adding erroneous audio effects to a recent 60 Minutes report on Tesla founder Elon Musk. Tesla vehicles, in fact, are electric and make little noise.

The battery-powered Tesla Model S is one of the world’s fastest and quietest luxury cars, but you might not know the latter if you watched the "60 Minutes" interview with Tesla founder Elon Musk that first aired on Sunday.

Now CBS says it regrets the "error" that led to that impression.

Following an introductory segment by Scott Pelley, whose wife owns a Model S, there is a series of shots provided by Tesla of a Model S driving down a road accompanied by the out-of-sync sounds of an internal combustion engine and the shifting of a transmission.

The Model S has neither of these things.

Here's a snippet from the CBS report:

CBS has since removed the edited audio from the segment. The interview with original sound effects can be watched HERE.

(Yes, the video above is a parody of the report. Those are not the actual sound effects CBS used.)

Russian President Putin Scraps RIA Novosti

RIA Novosti Headquarters


(Moscow, Russia)

The Kremlin announced Monday the dissolution of RIA Novosti, the country’s major state-run news agency, amid a significant reorganization of state-owned media assets.

News agency RIA Novosti and the state-owned Voice of Russia radio will be scrapped and absorbed into a new media conglomerate called Rossiya Segodnya, according to a decree signed by President Vladimir Putin.

The move is the latest in a series of shifts in Russia’s news landscape, which appear to point toward a tightening of state control in the already heavily regulated media sector.

Apparently, the shutdown of RIA Novosti, which 'must be carried out by the government within three months,' came as a surprise to the workers.

DC Intern Asks Relevant Question; Gets Mocked By Carney And Media

A 16 year old Daily Caller intern, Gabe Finger, attended a White House press meeting and asked a very relevant question: "Because of the death threats being received by George Zimmerman and his parents, is the president going to take action for their security or are they on their own?"

Jay Carney answered with the usual evasive, ambiguous response, saying he was unaware of any death threats against Zimmerman, but President Obama opposes violence and echos the statements of Trayvon Martin's family for calm reflection in the wake of the verdict.

Gabe tried to clarify the White House's stance by asking, "So they are on their own?" To which Carney replied the question was ridiculous. Maybe not so ridiculous, considering it was, in part, President Obama's involvement that further incited the lynch mob against George Zimmerman.

But even more ridiculous was the Washington D. C. media ridiculing the 16 year old intern. Not the relevance of the question he asked, but only his age:

The impropriety displayed on Wednesday by a high school-age intern who dared to ask White House Press Secretary Jay Carney a question relating to the security provided to the family of George Zimmerman knows no bounds. That is apparently the opinion of a number of members of the political press. After an intern had the temerity to ask Carney a question, the political media flew into a tizzy over the presumptuousness of the intern and turned to mocking him and the venue which credentialed him to be in the Briefing Room in the first place.

The temerity of this teen asking a tough question instead of lobbing softballs at Carney...

Hundreds Of Journalists Attacked In Egypt Since Arab Spring

And the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters are behind most attacks

Hundreds of journalists have come under attack in Egypt in the two years since a popular revolution toppled the Mubarak regime, according to a new report which experts fear could mean a chill wind blew in with the Arab Spring.

Some 309 attacks, including three murders, 100 assaults and 42 cases of temporary imprisonment are documented in a study prepared by the Almasry (Egyptian) Studies and Information Center. Three journalists have been murdered since January 2011. Prior to that, the last journalist killed in Egypt was in 1992, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

"The evidence shows that most of these assaults are being committed by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, who have established a months-long pattern of intimidating and harassing the news media," CPJ spokesman Sherif Mansour said after a recent wave of attacks on reporters.

Michael Clemente, Fox News' Executive VP Of News:
"We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter"...

James Rosen deserved it, per liberal assmaggots, just like they have said about the IRS targeting conservative groups.

Via FNC:

The Justice Department obtained a portfolio of information about a Fox News correspondent's conversations and visits as part of an investigation into a possible leak, The Washington Post reported Monday -- in the latest example of the government seizing records of journalists.

This follows the charge that the department secretly obtained two months of phone records from Associated Press journalists as part of a separate leak probe. The department in this case, though, went a step further, as an FBI agent reportedly claimed there's evidence the journalist in question -- Fox News' James Rosen -- broke the law "at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator."

That detail would potentially send the case into unprecedented territory. No reporter has been prosecuted for seeking information. Such cases often target the suspected leaker, but not the journalist who published sensitive or classified information.

Michael Clemente, Fox News' executive vice president of news, defended Rosen in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

"We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter,"

Benghazi: Names Of 'Whistleblower' Witnesses Released

whistleblowers_benghazi.jpg

Rep Issa: GOP Oversight May 8th Benghazi hearing will be streamed live at http://Oversight.House.Gov at 11:30

May The Force Be With Them

Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.

Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks[...]

DiGenova told Fox News on Thursday, by way of describing his and Toensing’s respective clients: “There were people who were material witnesses, who wanted to talk to [the ARB], and they were not allowed to talk to them.

“The people that we are representing are career civil servants...people who have served the country overseas…in dangerous positions all over the world, have risked their lives and only want to tell the truth.”

READ IT ALL]

God Bless them for their service and courage to come forward.

Most likely leftist and Bronco Bama's MFM are working hard to destroy the credibility of these patriots before the hearing even starts.

High School Hosts First Prom Ever; Leftist Media Reports It As First "Integrated" Prom Ever

The school claims it has never hosted a prom at all, much less any segregated events. The students took it upon themselves to host private parties, with most white students attending one and most black students attending another.

This year, Wilcox County School agreed to officially host a prom, which naturally will be open to all students. But the left-wing media is only reporting it as the first ever integrated prom, the implication being the school has kept students segregated up until this year:

Almost half a century after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed racial discrimination in schools and other public places, black and white students in Georgia's rural Wilcox County danced together for the first time at prom over the weekend.

In case their biased and misleading reporting didn't stir enough racial tensions, NBCNews added:

Traditionally, most students were welcome to the "black prom" but an unwritten rule kept students of different races from attending the "white prom."

"Unwritten rule" by who? The whites to keep blacks out? The blacks to promote their own segregated prom? I would find it more believable that both proms were open to others or that both had an "unwritten rule." The media just decided to praise one side and demonize the other with this ambiguous text, keeping with their leftist agenda.

A screenshot from NBCNews:

nbc_segregated_prom_headline.jpg

And people wonder why there are still racial issues in this age of Obama? It isn't because of any systematic discrimination. It is because certain advocates, mostly from the left, like to manufacture racism where it doesn't exist.

I'm not saying there are no racist people out there. There will always be individuals who harbor ignorant, bigoted attitudes. However, as a whole, as a society, racial discrimination has been rightly abolished.

But the left will always keep racism alive. It must. Racism and diversion are its nature. Even if it means destroying the country in the process.

CNN: "Pressure Cooker Bombs Signature Of Right-Wing Extremists"

The idiots at CNN then go on to equate pressure cooker bombs with pipe bombs to make their point:

Such a formula is certainly not unique to AQAP. Variations appear all over the Internet. A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.

For example, the devices planted by Erich Rudolph at an Atlanta park during the 1996 Olympic Games were pipe bombs filled with gunpowder and nails to increase their lethality; it also had an alarm clock as a timing mechanism. Like the bombings in Boston, those devices were concealed in a backpack, according to a Department of Homeland Security report detailing the 1996 attack.

Without exposing themselves to accusations of "racism" or "Islamophobia," CNN carefully treads around "lone wolf" incidents involving similar bombing components, such as backpacks and timers. Apparently, all these things prove right-wings extremists may be behind the bombing, despite the many coincidental Islamists using "Inspire" recipes.

Richard Landes: Islamism Is Winning The Cognitive War Thanks To Manipulative & Gullible Journalists

I would add PC to his list.

Anyone who remembers the halcyon dreams of the 1990s, of civil society spreading the world over, heralding a new peaceful, global millennium, must marvel at the path the young 21st century has taken. Even those who paid attention to global Jihad before the millennium could not imagine how vulnerable the West would prove in the coming, wildly asymmetrical war. Those who, over the course of the last 13 years, have awakened to the ever-growing danger of Islamism and to the astonishing inability of decent people – Muslims and non-Muslims – to effectively oppose its aggressions, owe themselves a brief lesson in cognitive warfare, and a second look at the nuclear bomb of that warfare, the Muhammad al Durah affair.

All asymmetrical wars take place primarily in the cognitive arena, with the major theater of war the enemy’s public sphere. The goal is to convince your far more powerful enemy not to fight. In defensive cases, from the Maccabees to the Vietnamese, this has meant getting imperial powers to “go home.” But Islamists who want to spread Dar al Islam[is the area of the world under the rule of Islam , literally, "the home of Islam" or "the home of submission"..ed] conduct an offensive campaign: how to get your targets to surrender on their own home ground? In this seemingly absurd venture, they have had remarkable success.

The mainstream news media – their journalists, editors, producers – constitute a central front of this cognitive war: the “weak” but aggressive side cannot have success without the witting or unwitting cooperation of the enemy’s journalists. The success of global Jihad in eliciting our media’s cooperation with their goals

Leftist Media Praises Obama For Telling The Truth About Skeet Shooting; Ignores The Fact He Lied About Benghazi

When the White House released a photograph of President Obama skeet shooting, the folks over at MSNBC were giddy with excitement and praise:

But when Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday, it was revealed that President Obama had lied about his activities on the night Ambassador Chris Stevens and four other Americans were dragged from the U.S. embassy in Benghazi and slaughtered by an insurgent mob:

The attack on the consulate had already been under way for 90 minutes at that time. Neither the president nor anyone else from the White House called afterwards to check what was happening; the Commander-in-Chief had left it "up to us," said Panetta.

Panetta's testimony directly contradicts President Obama's own claim to have issued "three direectives" as soon as he learned "what was going on" in Benghazi. As he told a Denver reporter in October:

I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.

That same claim was subsequently repeated by other Democrats, including Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who came to the president's defense. But if those directives were indeed given--and proof has never been produced--they were given long after the attack, not while the attack was going on, during which time the president did nothing.

Obama lied, Americans died. But the media is too impressed with his skeet shooting skills to notice.

CNN Vigorously Disseminating CAIR Talking Points

An interesting CNN interview with Pam Geller from Atlas Shrugs. The clip was posted by Geller to show what CNN cut from the interview, which is significant. Everything after the 9 minute mark was cut from the aired segment.

But I found most interesting is what wasn't cut. If you listen, notice CNN's Erin Burnette forcefully injects CAIR Unindicted Co-Conspirator talking points about Islam. She insists Islam is a peaceful religion in which a very small minority of fanatics have misunderstood. She states, as though a fact, the term "jihad" means an inner struggle to better one's self. And she refuses to even call the brutal beheaders of Daniel Pearl "savages."

If this is the media's vision of Islamic jihad, it's no wonder they fight so desperately to defend radical Islamic terrorists.

Sunday Times' Holocaust Remembrance: Blood Libel Cartoon

 photo sundaytimes_holocaust_bloodlibel_zps0ca27d77.jpg
Image credit: @Daniel_Brenner

This so-called media organization sucks testes, just saying.

Why can't cartoonists seem to criticise Israel without the use of big noses and blood libels? And why do the mainstream papers still publish this stuff?[...]

For some, however, Holocaust Memorial Day is transfiguring into a day that ‘the Jews’ or ‘Israel’ (for they will use these terms interchangeably), are to be attacked or set up, completely leaving behind the idea that the country came into existence in the wake of the greatest single crime in history[...]

For this is exactly what the Sunday Times has today done; not simply treading the fine line between criticism and blood libel, but indeed spitting all over it, leaving it for dust, and careering head first into anti-Semitismsville.

“Will cementing peace continue?” reads the caption beneath the image of a Quasimodo-like Netanyahu. As if this half-hearted attempt at a pun would help masquerade the overt racism within the image. No.

Dear BBC, that's his f'n job. He didn't go there to play nice with the Taliban

Prince Harry shot at Taliban insurgents during his time as an Army helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, he says.

The prince, whose five-month deployment to the country has just ended, spoke about his role as an Apache co-pilot gunner, and whether he had killed.

"Yeah, so lots of people have. The squadron's been out here. Everyone's fired a certain amount," he said.

"If there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game."

CNN also has a piece on him as well as the Guardian.

Is a Prince not supposed to kill bad guys or would they prefer him to be butt naked in Las Vegas? MFM never fails to show their naivety when it comes to the war on terror.

Liberal critics are complaining in the strongest terms about the "propaganda" video, yet, oddly, they don't offer a single inaccuracy in the video:

Today's version of the morning show featured an anti-Obama video that resembled propaganda films from 1930's Europe more than it did responsible TV politics of today.

And the remarkable thing was the witless crew on the couch that serves as hosts for this show had the audacity to present it as journalism and congratulate the producer who put it together.

Out of four minutes of fast paced Obama criticism in the video, that's the extent of charges against it. It "resembled" propaganda films and the Fox And Friends crew commented positively.

BTW, David Zurawik, the critic quoted above whining about Fox bias, gets his information from Media Matters. He admits it in the post.

It's The Atrocities, Stupid!

(Hat Tip: Jihad Watch)

MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, in an interview with Egyptian writer Mona Eltahawy about her article Why Do They Hate Us, is reluctant to help expose abuses of women in the Islamic world because it might make Muslims look bad:

“I start with a little bit of trepidation in this conversation, in part because I know some of the critiques of this. The very idea that Western press, those that are not from these nations, who are not Muslim ourselves, who are not part of these traditions can look at your article and say ‘ahhh, look at how horrible those men, or those societies, or that religion is.’

“And that is part of the reason why, for example, we have an under-reporting of rape and domestic violence in African American communities. Because we know the violence enacted on black men by police, so we often don’t call. Right?”

Harris-Perry is then joined by Harvard professor Leila Ahmed who also condescends Eltahawy for exposing abuses of women in Muslim societies, adding that such publicity only gives "fuel, fodder to people who simply hate Arabs and Muslims in this climate of our day.” Eltahawy responds:

“That’s the whole point. It’s not me that makes Muslims look bad. It’s those atrocities that make Muslims look bad. And as a writer, it’s my job to poke the painful places.”

The entire interview:

One other thing, Eltahawy made the point about how "women of privilege" - women who have never experienced the abuses Muslim women experience - tend to discredit or downplay claims of systematic misogyny in the Islamic world. Right on cue, Leila Ahmed reveals her own privileged existence by suggesting the abuses have little to do with gender, as young men face equal oppression according to her.

Heartache: San Diego Bartenders Complain Mitt Romney Hasn't Stopped By for a Drink

mitt_romney_bartender.jpg

I saw this link over at Drudge about Mitt Romney spending the weekend in San Diego along with a pic of him heading out into the surf. Now, I'm from Cali, and I can tell you that in April the water is freezing. So, I hope the guy had a much thicker wetsuit than the one depicted in the photo which is what we call a "spring suit" but which is really a misnomer since no one in their right mind would wear one in early April.

But I clicked on over the link where there was a local news video embedded about the Romneys being in town. The newsies interviewed two local bartenders who were mystified about why Mitt Romney and his family haven't been by for a few drinks.

Mitt Romney and his family not going to bars. A Mormon. Not going to a bar. It's a great mystery.

This is news? Only in San Diego my friends. Only in San Diego.

UPDATE: This might help explain it. To be honest, at first I thought the reporters were just goofing. But it turns out they really may be that dumb.

"It's F--king Cold"

The racial slur that never was. The media and the liberal propaganda machine has been going out of its way to make this non-racial story into a racial tinder box.

I posted a couple of nights ago that George Zimmerman, a man leftists have branded a racist based solely on inconclusive conjecture, has a history of fighting racial bias. But after weeks of headlining allegations of racism, the media is reluctantly examining alternatives to their one-sided, sloppy journalism.

Now listen to the painfully PG version of CNN's report:

I know its a lot to ask, especially since a person's life is at stake, but I can only hope the media will give this 'new' evidence the same attention and exposure they gave initial, erroneous conclusions.

I won't hold my breath.

CNN Headline: France begins "Muslim" deportations after shootings

One would think after reading the CNN headline is: "France is going after all Muslims"?

France is deporting radical extremists.
