Whenever you set up a liberal journalist or panel of liberal journalists to address "the role of the media in the 2024 election," it's going to reflect the questions inside their bubble, so it's mostly about Donald Trump. How does he get away with so much? How does he gain advantage from 91 felony indictments? Can we cover his speeches live? Do ...Read more
Never call PolitiFact an "independent fact-checker." They are every bit as liberal and biased as their fans in the liberal media. Recently, they announced they had published their 1,000th "fact-check" of Donald Trump.
"American fact-checkers have never encountered a politician who shares Trump's disregard for factual accuracy," they proclaimed....Read more
The overlong Super Bowl pregame festivities will once again unfold without an interview with President Joe Biden. Pundits are asking: Why would Biden forgo this massive audience as he runs for reelection? It's not like CBS would pound him with hardballs. Scott Pelley is about as tough as a Biden granddaughter. Gayle King vacationed with the ...Read more
The Wall Street Journal opinion section drew a pile of angry tweets when it ran an article by Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute. They fixated on the headline and didn't seem to read the article below.
The headline was "Welcome to Dearborn, America's Jihad Capital: Imams and politicians in the ...Read more
Gail Collins is a partisan Democrat columnist for The New York Times. How partisan? From 2007 through Election Day 2020, she wrote 58 columns that included the story that Mitt Romney put his Irish setter on the roof of his car in a luggage crate on a family vacation trip to Canada. She's so partisan that when Barack Obama won the presidency in ...Read more
When I'm interviewed about liberal tilt in the media, I'm usually pretty confident. But I can still be rattled for a moment when someone breaks out the silly old Eric Alterman argument; his book in 2003 was titled "What Liberal Media?"
When I recently appeared on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," host Kimberly Adams read a passage to me from Eric ...Read more
Donald Trump's early primary victories have started the "newsroom debates" again. Associated Press media reporter David Bauder penned a story headlined "Trump's live appearances pose a riddle that news executives still haven't solved."
So, when a newsworthy event happens -- like Trump's victory speech after the New Hampshire primary -- the pro-...Read more
The year has hardly begun and the pro-Biden media are already in a full-blown panic. They're upset many polls show Donald Trump ahead of President Joe Biden. When Democrats are losing, they warn that democracy is dying and disinformation is thriving.
In this spirit of dread, NBCNews.com posted a story with the headline "Disinformation poses an ...Read more
Late-night comedians on broadcast TV mock Republicans far more than Democrats in their monologues -- about four to one in 2023 -- and bring more nastiness to Republicans. Democrat jokes are often gentle Johnny Carsonesque kidding about how Joe Biden's really old. NBC's Jimmy Fallon joked, "Biden made sure an authentic Thanksgiving meal was ...Read more
Joe Biden's presidency is bursting with all the swagger and success of Jimmy Carter. There are even six American hostages in Israel. His polling is absolutely dismal. But Carter faced a rough primary season with Ted Kennedy. The Democrats and their media allies have suppressed all primary opponents for Biden.
The polls clearly suggest broad ...Read more
National Public Radio is a sandbox for the Left. The "news" there is manufactured by leftists, for leftists. You can find it easily in the latest interviews about the Biden reelection campaign. The interviewers are clearly nervous that President Joe Biden's messaging isn't working. It's not that Biden's incompetent; it's that voters are ignorant...Read more
President Joe Biden kicked off his reelection campaign with two speeches filled with his usual fact-challenged bombast. But since checking that might sound like "normalizing" bombastic Donald Trump, the "independent fact-checkers" have filed nothing after his speech near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 5 and his speech in Charleston, South ...Read more
On the third anniversary of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, President Joe Biden and the Democrats still operate as if this one terrible afternoon is the No. 1 issue of the 2024 campaign.
In a new campaign ad, Biden proclaims, "I've made the preservation of American democracy the central issue of my presidency." He says he and Vice President ...Read more
An essential ingredient in the stew of hysteria over a second Trump term is heavy-breathing concern for "vital institutions" like the press. On the badly named public radio podcast "Left, Right & Center" -- originating from KCRW, the NPR affiliate in Santa Monica, California -- former NPR morning host David Greene furiously pushed the panic ...Read more
One way you can tell that journalists are a panicked pack of partisans who earnestly feel President Joe Biden's pain is how they're currently reporting on the economy. They don't question whether the news is good. They question when will Biden receive credit for all the alleged great economic improvements since he took office.
On ABC's "This ...Read more
The most unintentionally hilarious outburst of journalistic objectivity in our times is the assumption that the Biden Department of Justice is nonpartisan. After Democrat prosecutors, federal and local, have filed 91 felony indictments against Donald Trump, none of these legal issues can be characterized as partisan politics.
On Christmas Eve, ...Read more
You could rename the Colorado Supreme Court as the Colorado Kangaroo Court. Without Donald Trump being convicted (or even accused) of insurrection for the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, four Democrat-appointed judges decided Trump is an insurrectionist who must be removed from the Republican primary ballot.
Network news reporters touted the ...Read more
No one should trust our "mainstream media" in defining where the "center" of politics is from their perch on the left-wing fringes. No one should trust them to define who is "nonpartisan" and who is "independent." The way they classify political actors is subtle, and yet blatantly unfair and unbalanced.
Reporters describe the groups they like ...Read more
Is President Joe Biden treating the press better than former President Donald Trump did? It's a low bar to argue he doesn't describe the media as "enemies of the people." Is he really treating them as they view themselves -- as representatives of the people? Or is he not interested in addressing the people? Are they all too negative?
Ben Smith ...Read more
In a previous epoch, Tim Alberta was a reporter for National Review, one of too many NR cubs who later joined the liberal-media zoo. Alberta is now at The Atlantic, one of America's most intense producers of frothing leftist drivel.
It seems like every leftist network has welcomed Alberta to trash conservative Christians through his latest book...Read more
