Former Post-Dispatch employee Loesch falsely declares that "the media is in bed with McCaskill"

Today, on her twitter account and certainly on her radio show as well, KFTK radio host and Akin operative Dana Loesch was whining about the "Missouri Media, Democrats, and the Post-Dispatch being in the tank for McCaskill." False.
























Dana, during your three-hour Right-Wing propaganda fest, Rush is up against you for the first two hours and another righty, Mark Reardon, is up against your final hour. According to Arbitron's September 2012 ratings, the "heritage ayem" station KMOX [#4] FAR outrates her station KFTK [#10], 6.5-4.7.




She covered up Todd Akin's "dog" comments directed at Claire McCaskill:
Todd Akin's "dog" comments directed at Claire McCaskill in order to attack McCaskill:

Democrats are desperate to distract from their scandal-plagued incumbent, and have once again enlisted Missouri media to assist. This week’s Big Bird? Akin supposedly called McCaskill a “dog.”
Last week the news that a whistleblower, a longtime high-ranking employee with the McCaskill family business accused the Senator and her husband of using the senate dining room as the setting for closing business deals. On tape. The Post-Dispatch published not a single headline, despite the fact that the story made national news and continues to grow. Instead, they’re focused on promoting the manufactured narrative that Akin called McCaskill a dog because she’s at the beck and call of the Obama administration. 

Oddly enough, there was zero LIBERAL RAGE® when McCaskill referred to herself as a dog:
U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill sums up her five years as a Democratic senator from Missouri with one word: watchdog. She uses another to describe her 2012 re-election campaign: underdog.
Not once, but TWICE.

This is just typical Dana Loesch fibbing and lying in order to defend Akin and slam McCaskill at all costs.

The REAL facts about Akin's "dog" comment, from Think Progress's Igor Volsky:


Missouri senate candidate Todd Akin, who withstood GOP pressure to drop his bid after suggesting that women don’t become pregnant from “legitimate rape,” recently compared his opponent Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to a dog. Akin made the remarks at a fundraiser in Springfield featuring supporter Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R):
She goes to Washington, D.C., it’s a little bit like one of those dogs, you know ‘fetch,’” Akin said. “She goes to Washington, D.C., and get all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and she brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri.”
“It seems to me that she’s got it just backwards,” Akin added. “What we should be doing is taking the common sense that we see in Missouri and taking that to Washington, D.C., blessing them with some solutions instead of more problems.”


Rick Tyler, Akin's campaign spokesperson, doubled down on his anti-McCaskill "fetch" comment and labels her "Bullshitsu":
