Is Anthony Weiner At It Again? It Looks That Way

Weiner's homepage as it looked earlier today notice the tweet is filed under favorits

“Realistically, my political career is probably over,” Weiner told in an interview published Tuesday. “The only job I ever wanted more than Congress was mayor, and I don’t think that either of those two jobs are going to be available.” If his political career wasn't over on Tuesday, it certainly may be on Friday as a picture from an attractive woman was Favorited by the former congressman on his verified twitter account @AnthonyWeiner

Close Up of the Tweet

The picture was sent from the account @JoslynSteven whose account home page is captioned "filling in for your wife since 2001"

Tweets such as the one from Ms Stevens are sent intermittently to most twitter accounts as spam, however normally people don't favorite the tweet except if they are legitimate tweets or if people expect to act on them (Note: the tweet was removed from Mr. Weiner's favorites when the pictures were first published on Gawker and Ms Stevens account has since been suspended by Twitter).

Ms Stevens Twitter Homepage

A post on Ms. Stevens' website begins:
I've been receiving emails from many of you looking to have an affair for the first time but who don't know where to start. Stepping out on your partner can be scary especially considering what's at stake if your affair is discovered but don't worry, you can be successful. Millions of men (and women) around the world are rediscovering themselves through affairs and no amount of moral shaming from society is going to change that.
If putting this woman's tweet in his favorites was anything but an "innocent mistake" this would make Mr. Weiner a three-time loser. Even if he did not contact Ms Stevens, with his "twitter" track record, and knowing that people are following his account perhaps it would be best if the former congressman addressed his need for racy pictures in more of a low-tech manner.

Perhaps Michelle Obama Should Use A Teleprompter-She Screws Up Again

Perhaps its time for Michelle Obama to borrow her husband's teleprompter or if she does use one maybe it's time for an upgrade because yesterday at a campaign appearance for Mark Udall she quoted from the biography of his Republican opponent Corey Gardner.

At a campaign appearance in Denver on Thursday night Mrs. Obama referred to Senator Mark Udall of Colorado who was born in Arizona, as a “fifth-generation Coloradan.” Obviously Udall doesn't fit into the 5th generation category but his opponent does. That  phrase that appears in the online versions of both the congressional and campaign biographies of Representative Cory Gardner.

“As a fifth-generation Coloradan, Mark understands what makes this state special,” Mrs. Obama said. “He understands the values of independence and fairness — all the things here folks believe in.”
Recently the first lady botched the name of Iowa Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley throughout a campaign appearance. And during her next Iowa appearance someone in her office sent out the transcript claiming that Braley was running for Governor instead of Senator.

Maybe from now on she can say "Vote for Good Ole Whatshisface" Who is running for "office."

Newsbusted: Economists Predict A 3rd Obama Term Would Result in Free Gasoline

Even though it is prohibited by the Constitutions economists have looked at the trends and predict that if Obama was allowed a third term gasoline would be free. As explained by Newsbusted Anchor Jodie Miller (see video below) the recent drop in gasoline prices is a result of the weak economy which leads to people purchasing less gas causing a buildup of supply. These economists questioned by Ms Miller believe an additional four years of Obama's economic policy would damage the economy and build up the supply to such a great extent that gasoline would be given away.

Other news items covered in the latest installment of Newsbusted the twice- weekly faux news feature from (embedded below) include; Chris Matthews and MSNBC's low ratings; the Midterm elections; Bruce Jenner; and much, much more.

Please make sure you watch the video below because something bad always happens to the people who don't. Last week Jeanne Shaheen forgot to press play and yesterday she had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Debate. So if you don't want your campaign to fall apart you better press play.

Jeanne Shaheen And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Debate

If Jeanne Shaheen’s goal in her debate with Scott Brown today was to create more material for Brown's campaign ads she had a great night.  But assuming the incumbent Democrat wants to win her reelection campaign it was a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Debate. 

In a rare moment of candor, Jeanne Shaheen admitted that she and every other Democratic senator on the ballot this fall was the deciding vote for ObamaCare. And as if that wasn’t a big enough problem on its own, Shaheen said she was proud of her record of supporting President Obama 99 percent of the time and waffled on whether she wanted the President to come campaign for her....Yikes... watch her multiple gaffes below.

Jeanne Shaheen Admits She Was The “Deciding Vote” For ObamaCare

Jeanne Shaheen: I’m “Proud” Of My 99% Voting Record With Obama

Jeanne Shaheen Waffles On If She Wants Obama Campaigning For Her

NBC's Chuck Todd Partners With Media Matters To Attack Fox News

The new host of "Meet The Press," Chuck Todd, criticized Fox News, claiming that they have an “obsession” with finding media bias in every story. Todd also believes Fox straight news anchors interview conservatives without any balance from the other side.

Most interesting was the venue which Todd chose to bash Fox News, the progressive propaganda site funded by George Soros, Media Matters For America. Almost one hundred percent of Media Matters' content is dedicated to trashing Fox News. Todd is no dummy he knew exactly what he was doing and where he was doing it.

In the interview Todd claimed he's had a politically diverse range of guests on his show. When the Media Matters interviewer mentioned some Sunday shows balancing conservatives with news reporters, Todd said he doesn’t do that; it's a “Fox phenomenon” because they have an agenda.

Media Matters: And how about when you have group discussions that feature a partisan conservative commentator matched up with a news reporter? There seems to be a working assumption that a straight news reporter will balance --
Todd: I haven't done that.

Media Matters: No, in a lot of the Sunday shows.

Todd: I can't -- I mean people that do that -- that's a Fox phenomenon. That's not a -- Fox may do that, but that's their -- they have an agenda. You know what I mean? I don't do that. I don't believe in that. If I've got a right-leaning voice, I need a left-leaning voice. Now, I think a bigger problem is -- I think that all the shows need to reflect -- it's like, we go through this diversity checklist, right?
Perhaps Todd has never watched MSNBC, where he hosted a daily show. That network rarely has a guest offering the conservative perspective. As for Fox News, they usually have at least one leftist guest to debate the conservative guests.

Todd blasted Fox News in particular and how they have, in his words, an obsession and fixation on the subject of media bias:
Media Matters: So what do you think is the role of Fox? Do they do it right? Do they do something wrong? What do they do right and wrong?

Todd: I again, I think their obsession with always -- I think it's amusing to me, their obsession with trying to make everything about media bias. Whatever story, whatever angle, whatever stories is out there, there's always some sort of supposed media-bias angle to it. And I'm like, "Aren't they the number one media -- news media outlet on cable?" So my concern, frankly, is less about the media organizations and more about the group think that's taking place with the populace. I think citizens -- too many citizens are only getting news from one place and not understanding the other side. Look, I want Meet the Press to be a place that hard-core conservatives and hard-core progressives feel like they can get a better understanding of things, as well as moderates, pragmatists, whatever you wanna call 'em. Everybody's got a different name for them. Wishy-washy people, right, if you think they don't stand up for their principles enough. Whatever it is. But that's a challenge in these times. I think more and more people are gravitating toward their comfort zones politically and ideologically, and I think that that is reinforcing the negative perception on the press and journalism.
Todd neglected to mention the recent Robert Morris University survey which stated:
Fox News was named by 18.4% of all respondents as the one most trusted for accurate and objective reporting. Fox News was followed by CNN as the most trusted (14.1%) as well as ABC News (7.5%), local broadcasts (7.0%) and NBC News (6.9%).
The same study reported "by nearly a four-to-one margin, Americans see the U.S. news media biased in favor of liberals and against conservatives at 45.7% compared to those (12.7%) seeing the news media biased in favor of conservatives and against liberals.  Few, 16.2%, noted the news media is not biased in their coverage."

In other words, Fox News may be obsessed with media bias, but as Joseph Heller wrote in his classic novel Catch-22, "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you."
