CNN's Brian Stelter flunks at defending CNN

From the Right / Tim Graham /

CNN host Brian Stelter has a slimy new book out called "Hoax" in which he attacks Fox News and President Donald Trump with a lot of anonymously sourced hit quotes. My favorite stop on his book tour has to be an appearance during the closing minutes of ABC's "The View" on Sept. 16.

Stelter's obsequious inquirers such as NPR's Terry Gross and PBS...Read more

The Democrats running the "news" media and the book publishing industry have stacked the deck against Trump

From the Right / Tim Graham /

It must be fall campaign season, because our incredibly tilted Democratic media are rotating through a series of authors ripping into President Donald Trump. Start with the most overpraised journalist in Washington, Bob Woodward, who is the same age as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden but is still trotted out with great fanfare as the ...Read more

Mainstream media smears Republicans and absolves Democrats

From the Right / Tim Graham /

"Trump lied. People died." This was the hot smear from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after the first snippets of tape were leaked by Washington Post bigfoot Bob Woodward from his new anti-Trump book, "Rage." The president told Woodward back in March that he wanted to downplay the coronavirus so people wouldn't panic, even though he said ...Read more

The Atlantic Magazine is hyperbolic, hyperpartisan

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The Atlantic launched a fall-campaign fusillade with anonymous sources claiming President Donald Trump callously trashed America's war dead as "losers" and "suckers," and it is being celebrated by the pro-Biden news media. The Atlantic is "respected" and "venerable" and "at the zenith of its influence."

Editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg lauded ...Read more

PolitiFact is clearly partisan because it says Trump lies and Biden doesn't

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Apparently, the proper role of the "independent fact-checker" during today's presidential campaign is to present the consistent opinion that Joe Biden is a force for truth and light, and President Donald Trump is a rampaging liar who never says anything true.

No one should suggest that these "fact-checker" groups need to parcel their rulings ...Read more

Biden-loving reporters babble 'without evidence'

From the Right / Tim Graham /

One of the common tropes we see in everyday news coverage is the claim that something said by President Donald Trump or his supporters is "without evidence." This is a stark factual claim. Sometimes, it's starkly wrong.

The hashtag #DefundNPR started trending on Sept. 1 after NPR tweeted this to 8.3 million followers: "President Trump declined ...Read more

CNN's Tapper in blatant violation of the concept of truth

From the Right / Tim Graham /

There may be no more blatant violation of the concept of truth in advertising than CNN's boastful claiming of the slogan "Facts First." If facts were water and opinions were whiskey, CNN would concoct a very potent cocktail.

It's easy to compare CNN's very hostile coverage in the minutes after Vice President Mike Pence finished a Republican ...Read more

Mainstream media swoons over DNC

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The political party conventions keep slowly receding from their place in the national spotlight, especially with these genuine-imitation virtual conventions. The audiences (and air times) seem to shrink every four years, and most people who tune in are the most committed partisans, not the most independent and persuadable voters. But one ...Read more

5 parts of Barack Obama's speech which were mean-spirited, phony or laughable

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Ryan Lizza, chief Washington correspondent of Politico, is the kind of character assassin who likes to go to the White House briefing and throw beanball questions about how many coronavirus deaths President Donald Trump thinks are acceptable.

If that sounds darkly partisan, you could also see the sunny side of Lizza on Twitter, who almost ...Read more

We need to treat Michelle Obama as what she; America's most pampered princess

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Michelle Obama's prerecorded speech for the first night of the Democratic convention was praised effusively and automatically by the "news" media. Because the media see it as their job to praise everything Michelle Obama does with overwhelming enthusiasm.

Please try this imaginative exercise: When has a "news" professional ever asked Michelle ...Read more

Mainstream media let Joe and Kamala off the hook during their fact-mangling debut

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The new Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Democratic ticket debuted in Delaware on Aug. 12, followed by the typically frantic partisan sugar-sculpting competition on cable "news." But MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell took the saccharine prize by claiming that there was not a single false utterance in 35 minutes.

The energetic promoters of "independent fact...Read more

The left needs to assemble an apology parade for Palin

From the Right / Tim Graham /

An august group of feminists -- including America's most audacious abortion advocates -- joined Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, to form the "We Have Her Back" coalition and lobby the media for "anti-sexist" coverage of the Democratic vice presidential selection. The establishment media received a list of don'ts:...Read more

Partison PBS adores Democratic wives and hates GOP wives

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Fifty years after the Public Broadcasting Service launched, we're still seeing our taxpayer subsidies transform into Democratic donations during election years. On Aug. 4, "PBS NewsHour" hatched a love-in with Dr. Jill Biden.

Anchor Judy Woodruff hit every Joe Biden campaign talking point with partisan perfection. She began by reminding viewers...Read more

Biden backers terrified of debates

From the Right / Tim Graham /

CNN's media unit emails out a nightly newsletter titled "Reliable Sources." The newsletter is not always reliable, since it has a slippery grasp on what its own network is putting on television and online.

On Aug. 3, Oliver Darcy led the newsletter discussing what he described as an "imaginary controversy": the notion that Joe Biden might skip ...Read more

Will Democracy seem lost in the mail?

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The 2020 campaign has been so contorted by the coronavirus that the Democrats and Republicans are still figuring out how on Earth they'll hold virtual conventions. Now imagine how it could make a mess out of November.

As President Donald Trump bizarrely tweeted about delaying the election, the media are starting to admit that mail-in voting ...Read more

The media offer no reward for conservatives and Republicans being nice and polite

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Few subjects more easily betray aggressive media bias than protests. If you're a conservative protester, you're most likely to be ignored. The networks mostly ignored this year's prayerful March for Life in January, even though President Donald Trump came in person, a historic first.

ABC anchor David Muir offered 15 seconds, saying: "The ...Read more

The real collusion scandal of the 2016 campaign was between Hillary and the mainstream media

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Four years ago this week, the leftists at WikiLeaks tried to ruin the Democratic convention by posting a trove of emails exposing how the Democratic National Committee blatantly favored Hillary Clinton and tilted against Bernie Sanders. But even then, the media downplayed the juiciest tidbits for conservatives: emails in Clinton aide John ...Read more

Journalists engage in malpractice when touting Biden as 'devout'

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Naivete can be defined as the notion that Joe Biden is going to be covered objectively by the press, "without fear or favor." After all this rampaging media activism against President Donald Trump, who is now described as lagging by 15 points in the polls, surely, the front-runner in the presidential race will face some tough investigative ...Read more

Leftist consider protests more sacred than church services

From the Right / Tim Graham /

For many Americans, the most painful consequence of the coronavirus lockdowns is the closing of church services. The grace and peace of Sunday makes it easier to make it through the week. But our media and political elites are indifferent to that pain, or openly hostile.

The New York Times recently proclaimed in a headline, "Churches Emerge as ...Read more

Your opinion is not the left's reality

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson has a Republican pedigree and an evangelical Christian background. He wrote profound speeches for former President George W. Bush, who was mocked as a mangler of the English language. Today, he sounds like a speechwriter for the gaseous opening of the Brian Stelter show on CNN.

The headline of a recent ...Read more
