Laughing at Brian Stelter's MAGA-Fascist Fiction

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Is The New Republic still an opinion journal, or has it turned into a science-fiction magazine? For their June issue, the magazine put Donald Trump on the cover with a Hitler moustache over the headline "American Fascism: What It Would Look Like." They published eight fever-brained visions of Trumpian fascism in a second term.

Former CNN host...Read more

Mainstream Media Didn't Pay Enough Attention to Biden's Gaffes at Morehouse!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

President Joe Biden made a well-publicized commencement address on May 19 at Morehouse College in Atlanta, a historically black college. The networks touted the speech but didn't put any "fact-checkers" on it. It contained at least four fibs.

In an echo of his 1987 lies that crumbled in first presidential campaign, Biden claimed, "I was the ...Read more

Boos and Hisses for the Kansas City Kicker!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

On May 11, Kansas City Chiefs placekicker Harrison Butker gave the commencement address at Benedictine College, a Catholic school in Kansas. Within 48 hours, the media elites were ablaze with outrage. There's a "growing uproar," warned NBC's Hoda Kotb.

A Catholic speaker talked about Catholic issues to Catholic graduates. But the Butker critics...Read more

Hillary Clinton's Conspiracy Privilege

From the Right / Tim Graham /

It's hard to watch the incessant gavel-to-gavel coverage of the Donald Trump trial in Manhattan without feeling like you're traveling in a time warp back to 2016. We're back reliving the "Access Hollywood" tape and talk of how Trump would have never been elected except porn star Stormy Daniels accepted a six-figure check to keep quiet.

The ...Read more

CNN Deploys a 'Fact-Checker' for Trump, But Not For Biden!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

On May 8, President Joe Biden took the very unusual step of submitting to an interviewer who was an actual journalist (not like Howard Stern or Drew Barrymore). It wouldn't be long before he started mangling his record -- and Donald Trump's.

CNN reporter Erin Burnett began with how Trump's promises of new jobs in Wisconsin didn't come true: "...Read more

PolitiFact Shames Talk of 'Outside Agitators' in College Protests!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

You can tell when the PolitiFact website is going to negotiate around the facts. On May 7, their top headline on the home page asked: "Are 'outside agitators' co-opting campus protests?"

This isn't quite the right question. The media have presented these events as "student" protests, so if half the participants aren't college students, how ...Read more

The Public Doesn't Trust the 'Democracy-Saving' Media!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The national media consider themselves essential in educating the electorate, so what happens when the electorate does not consider them a trustworthy guardian of democracy?

The Associated Press and the American Press Institute just released a poll on the 2024 election and found only 14% of their sample expressed "a great deal of confidence in ...Read more

White House Correspondents Host a Biden Rally!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

It was remarkable breaking news, occurring live on CNN. The White House Correspondents' Association hosted a dinner, and a Biden for President rally broke out.

It's only natural that CNN loves live coverage of the White House correspondents' dinner, where the anti-Trump media celebrate themselves for how essential they are to preserving ...Read more

Leftist Reporters Pretend They're Not Partisan News Squashers!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Eight years ago, the leftist media took great offense to being dismissed by Donald Trump as "fake news," but they never seemed to grasp this is exactly how they painted the conservative media, as truth-defying propaganda outlets.

When the Trump trial turned to the National Enquirer, we could find national unity that the Enquirer defines "fake ...Read more

Anti-Censorship Group Canceled by Pro-Hamas Authors!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The leftist "free expression" group PEN America collided with a brick wall of radicals who don't like anyone who expresses a sympathetic view of Israel after the Hamas slaughter of Oct. 7. Their literary awards ceremony had to be canceled due to a substantial withdrawal of authors striking a "pro-Palestinian" pose.

If you disagree with that ...Read more

Do Celebrities Have Deeper Liberal Thoughts?

From the Right / Tim Graham /

When Laura Ingraham wrote her book "Shut Up and Sing" in 2003, the Left didn't read the book as much as overreact to the title. The title implied something important. While celebrities gain a "platform" they feel compelled to use, do their opinions reflect any expertise? Or is fame more important than logic?

Celebrities often lead with emotion ...Read more

Innskeep Lamely Swats at Suspended Dissident!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

National Public Radio senior editor Uri Berliner has been suspended for his unauthorized critique of the insular liberal bias of his network. NPR star and "Morning Edition" host Steve Inskeep took to his Substack blog to slam Berliner's article as "filled with errors and omissions."

"His colleagues have had a rich dialogue about his mistakes," ...Read more

'Public' Radio Isn't Dedicated to the Masses!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Is National Public Radio fair and balanced? Do they care what you think?

NPR has a "public editor" to monitor listener complaints and concerns, but as we all know, the majority of their listeners are going to complain they're not "progressive" enough. In 2021, Public Editor Kelly McBride appeared on Brian Stelter's CNN podcast to praise NPR's ...Read more

PBS Brings Tar and Feathers for William F. Buckley

From the Right / Tim Graham /

In the earlier decades of the Public Broadcasting Service, conservatives could feel that they had some fraction of a platform on William F. Buckley Jr.'s "Firing Line." That PBS presence no doubt spurred the makers of the "American Masters" series to offer a two-hour program titled "The Incomparable Mr. Buckley." In the opening credits, they ...Read more

PBS 'News' Hounds OK With Biden's Inflammatory Rhetoric! While Criticizing Trump's!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

They call themselves the "PBS NewsHour," but if you watch them routinely, you might call them the "PBS Opposition Research Hour." They often sound like a Democrat consulting firm as they analyze Donald Trump as a dangerously extreme figure. Then they can turn around and proclaim that President Joe Biden is very bipartisan in negotiating "...Read more

Journalists Boast They're Not for Democrats, They're for 'True Facts'

From the Right / Tim Graham /

National Public Radio may be funded by taxpayer dollars, but its audience is firmly on the Left. It's literally New York Times Radio, as "The Daily" podcast from the Times airs on almost 300 NPR stations every weekday. Inside this airless liberal silo, they can grow very arrogant about how they save democracy.

On April Fools' Day, host ...Read more

Jon Stewart, the Tribeca Trickster of Real Estate

From the Right / Tim Graham /

On March 25, "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart uncorked a typical not-so-funny sermon about how Donald Trump overvaluing real estate properties was not a "victimless crime." Trump has been found liable for fraud despite no banker or financier ever claiming Trump victimized them.

Then the New York Post reported talk show host Tim Pool tweeted that ...Read more

Hyperbolic MSNBC's Ronna McDaniel Debacle

From the Right / Tim Graham /

The word broke on March 26 that NBC News was reversing its decision to hire former Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel as a political commentator. MSNBC hosts across the schedule broke out into frenzied denunciations of whichever executive who thought that McDaniel should be paid to speak anywhere on this hypnotically/robotically anti-Trump ...Read more

Media Go AWOL on Holding the Bidens Accountable!

From the Right / Tim Graham /

For the first two years of Joe Biden's presidency, the partisan Democrats of our "legacy media" treated the Pelosi-Picked Panel on Jan. 6 as a dominant story, worthy of hundreds of hours of television coverage, both live coverage of the hearings and breathless cycles of previews and reviews. Once Republicans took over the House, would we have ...Read more

CNN Rips Elon Musk, Sinking Into the 'Right-Wing Fever Swamps'

From the Right / Tim Graham /

Everything CNN does now underlines how Chris Licht's doomed attempts to calm it down are almost completely forgotten. On Sept. 18, Oliver Darcy's "Reliable Sources" newsletter was topped by the headline "Elon's Reality Escape." Because CNN defines what "reality" is, and "reality" has a virulent leftist bias. That bias makes you "reliable."
