The Right’s Wrath Against Candy Crowley

The CNN reporter, Candy Crowley, who moderated Tuesday night’s presidential debate at Hofstra University has joined the ranks of journalists inside the “liberal media” that the right-wing echo chamber will forever smear, slime, and loathe. The Republicans, along with their formidable propaganda outlets, Fox News and AM Talk Radio, have their knickers in a bunch because Ms. Crowley fact-checked their beloved candidate, Mitt Romney during the night’s most heated exchange.

DNC's 'Mitt Math' Ad

In the absence of a clearly articulated breakdown of Governor Mitt Romney's tax plan, many pundits and economic analysts are doing the math for him and questioning his sincerity.
The DNC is capitalizing on the varied newsroom segments in this new ad and highlighting Romney's ambiguous responses about tax reform and who it will affect.

Jack Welch Capitalizes on Collateral Damage

"You are a Sheep!" - Libertarian Caller to Seder, Sam Responds

Jim from PA has called into the show many times. You might recall him from previous videos as the Gary Johnson supporter who believes Sam Seder has the same power as Rush Limbaugh and other pundits to sway the election. He thinks Sam is a "sheep" for supporting Obama as the lesser of the two evils. This past week, Sam and Jim had their most epic, heated conversation yet. However, we will be uploading that later in the week. SUSPENSE!
