Good evening and welcome to Rapid Fire, our daily email tip sheet. Here you will find updates to breaking AIM content and a look at what we’re reading. Please keep emailing tips and suggestions or hit us up on Facebook or Twitter.
TOP STORY: Cliff Kincaid follows up the CBS debate-trap story with additional analysis stating, “Obama was wrong before he was ‘right.’ He came into office opposed to the use of executive power in this manner. This is the point that Pelley ignored in his question to the Republicans but which should have been central to the discussion.” http://bit.ly/seuXcI
MEDIA WATCH: You can’t seem to take your eye off MSNBC’s Chris Matthews for one day without him saying something crazy. Last night, he accused the Republican presidential field (yep, ALL of them) of being full o’ hate. Don Irvine contends: “Matthews made his attack on the GOP, accusing them of hate without backing up his claims with any facts, because if he had been forced to he wouldn’t have found any…With the Republican nomination process far from over, we can expect more such attacks by Matthews and other liberals as they desperately try to give Obama a much needed advantage in 2012.” Full transcript and video here: http://bit.ly/sPPy69.

ELECTION 2012: The AP is in full defense mode after the GOP field is shifting to foreign policy attacks regarding Iran. With the Islamic “republic” about to join the nuclear club the AP reminds us how awesome Mr. Obama still is: “The killing of Osama bin Laden, NATO’s successful Libya campaign and as-promised U.S. troop drawdowns in Iraq and Afghanistan have helped transform foreign policy into one of Obama’s strengths as he prepares for a difficult re-election campaign focused on the economy. Obama has failed to advance Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, but that elusive goal has confounded every American president since Jimmy Carter.” http://bit.ly/tjpLc9
NEWTERED: It appears that the new frontrunner media honeymoon for a GOP candidate is now less than 48 hours…and Newt Gingrich is no different. The buzz generated off his debate performances may pale in comparison with new revelations that he received “at least $1.5 million for consulting contracts stretching from 1999 to 2007,” from mortgage giant Freddie Mac. http://bit.ly/u4R8j0
WHAT WE’RE READING: Just when the White House thought the scandal was finished, new emails regarding the Solyndra bust show that “The Obama administration wanted the failing solar energy company Solyndra to delay announcing an early round of employee layoffs until after the 2010 midterm elections.” http://bit.ly/vEKZHA
FEAR, INC.: AIM guest columnist M. Zuhdi Jasser details why the latest project from the George Soros-funded, Van Jones-running Center for American Progress on American Islamophobia is bunk: “This report portends to be an in-depth investigative analysis that connects the dots of a supposedly sinister anti-jihadist movement. But a glossy cover around 132 pages of political blog material does not make a report either journalistically or academically sound.” A must read. http://bit.ly/sgErbi
TOKEN ACADEMICS: Accuracy in Academia today released a study investigating how many academics have the White House on their resume over the years. http://bit.ly/seZSro
