NewsBusters Executive Editor Tim Graham discusses the left's media bias.
Even as Joe Biden's approval ratings have collapsed, you can't blame the liberal media for his unpopularity. Scott Whitlock is here to describe just how aggressively the network evening newscasts downplayed or skipped stories that would put bad news on Biden's plate.
Martin Luther King birthday celebrations could be unifying, but that’s not how media liberals use it. It’s just another occasion to trash Republicans as “Jim Crow” racists trying to keep blacks from voting and laboring to stop school kids from learning anything about MLK. What a sorry set of smears.
Between Joe Biden's ranting Atlanta speech and Kamala Harris's bumbling interview with Craig Melvin on NBC, the White House had a terrible week...even though the liberal TV networks energetically promoted their failing arguments.
President Biden gave a “fiery” speech in Atlanta attacking anyone who disagreed with him on current Democrat “voting rights” bills as akin to southern segregationists of the 1960s. The networks lined up to promote his “appeal to the lessons of history,” like competing candidates for president of his fan club.…
Since when does Brian Stelter borrow hot slang from Ben Shapiro on the COVID pandemic? Suddenly Stelter and Oliver Darcy are worrying out loud that the media is out of touch with the public....oh really?
As the liberal media devoted many hours to commemorating the 1/6 riot, it was considered horrible to "minimize" it, but it's apparently never objectionable to exaggerate it beyond belief -- an event where five died doesn't match the terrorist murder of 3,000.
NewsBusters rings in 2022 with stand-in host Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro alongside Research Director Scott Whitlock to discuss the media's New Year resolution to make every day -- and the upcoming midterm election season -- about January 6 in an attempt to swing the election for Democrats.
NPR recently suggested the Beatles signified how the rock band was a white-male institution. They also explained that "yacht rock" like Steely Dan, Toto, and the Doobie Brothers is culturally appropriated black music.
Briefing Room scribe Curtis Houck and Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro discuss CBS editing out comments one of their own reporters made about school closures and CNN claiming there’s no “malicious intent” when journalists make “innocent” mistakes.
On Wednesday’s podcast, newly minted early bird Curtis Houck and Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro discuss the Covid crazies in the media who are desperately trying to get America to reinstitute mass lockdowns. We also do a rundown on fun project I worked on “2021’s Top Dirty Dozen Fredo Moments from CNN’s Former Wise Guy.” And chatted with the newest m…
On Monday’s NewsBusters Podcast, deputy managing editor Nicholas Fondacaro and I took a look at just some of the bad headlines that enveloped the Biden administration surrounding its doomed Build Back Better agenda, but before that, we went through a new documentary by liberal sports network ESPN that fawned over NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace.…
Harvard's Nieman Lab looked ahead to the "news" business in 2022 and promoted an end to objectivity as a journalism ideal. "Solidarity for social justice" is the new fad, but solidarity with whom? The "marginalized" get a major boost, and if you're not "marginalized," you're going to get lectured about your advantages. They think the media's job is…
The networks suggested that the House Democrats (on a mostly party-line vote) issued a "historic rebuke" of Trump by charging Mark Meadows with contempt of Congress. The same outlets were deeply bored when a GOP Congress held Eric Holder in contempt back in 2012.
Chris Wallace announced he was leaving Fox News, and then he joined CNN’s new streaming service. He even said he was “delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team.” But leaving Fox for CNN is like leaving the Super Bowl champs to join the Detroit Lions (or the Lions practice squad?)
Thursday marked a harmonic convergence as we wave farewell to the careers of Brian Williams and Jussie Smollett, two fabulists who counted on the Left to promote their misinformation.
The broadcast networks were reluctant and slow in covering the Jussie Smollett trial. ABC's been almost non-existent after boosting Smollett two years ago. CNN found another problem in Don Lemon texting Smollett about how the cops weren't believing his story.
Only after Chris Cuomo was suddenly fired did CNN's Brian Stelter discover he'd crossed an ethical line "many times," that there were "so many headaches here, so many journalistic fouls." Then he had a guest tout Cuomo as a wonderful "talent" and "performer" who was "competitive" in the ratings. The only thing more ridiculous was the Washington Pos…
The toughest part of Jen Psaki's White House briefing is dealing with respectful hardballs from Fox's Peter Doocy. Curtis Houck discusses how Doocy made Psaki's spin too lame to take seriously.
Chris Cuomo lied to CNN about just how extensively he was helping his brother Andrew try to survive a wave of sex-harassment allegations. So he's been suspended "indefinitely," but Stelter is already hinting it might just be a month.
CNN's "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter can't accept that there is bad news under Biden, and if you blame Biden, that is relying on "feelings over facts." Plus: CNN and The Washington Post get ratioed on Twitter for suggesting the murderer in the Waukesha rampage was an automobile.
How energetically did MSNBC smear Kyle Rittenhouse as a white supremacist, white nationalist, or racist? Quite a bit. Joy Reid led a pack of smack talkers about Kyle being a little racist coward with an AR-15 menacing a violent neighborhood.
Despite a slow news week, the networks did nothing (or barely anything) on a front-page New York Times story underlining the guilt of ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York. A New York Assembly committee probe found "overwhelming evidence" that Cuomo engaged in repeated sexual harassment in office, doctoring COVID death numbers, and exploiting staff in t…
On the Sunday after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty for using his gun in self-defense, the network shows lamented all the alleged racism in the verdict and let liberals lie about Rittenhouse's supposed criminal acts, like bringing an illegal gun across state lines. Teen vigilantes might even haunt prayer vigils!…
Breaking news of five "Not Guilty" counts in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial led to media complaints of a "vindication of vigilantism" and an indictment of how America was "designed to work"....for white people.
Newspapers across America use Washington dispatches from the Associated Press on their front pages. But sometimes those AP articles are badly disguised press releases for Bidenites or worried pieces of sociology about "gun culture."
On this episode of the NewsBusters Podcast, Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro and White House briefing scribe Curtis Houck are hanging around to discuss the liberal media’s open disdain for average Americans as they scoff at those struggling to make ends meet because of inflation, with one even suggesting people were lying about their struggles.…
Nick Fondacaro and Curtis Houck dive into the latest lunacy from MSNBC’s Joy Reid following a joint effort from her and a team of guests hurling more dangerous invective against anyone who opposes them, including parents wanting to remove pornographic material from schools. They also tackle the liberal media’s disinformation campaign against Kyle R…
Nick Fondacaro and Curtis Houck examine the sneaky way the media cover elections. They elevate state elections they like, but relegate others to ‘local story’ status when they want to bury them. Research Director Scott Whitlock joins the show to call out their almost total silence about the close governor’s race in New Jersey.…
It’s funny when Tim Graham is accused of having a problem with “Democracy and Truth” by a New York Times opinion editor in a pundit panel on media coverage of Biden. Joseph Vazquez of MRC Business discusses MRC being placed in the “Toxic Ten” of sites “denying the climate crisis” by a British anti-“hate” group.…
You know it's a good night for Republicans when it's a terrible night of bitterness at MSNBC and CNN. They routinely lied that Critical Race Theory is never taught, a ghost, a fakery.
Several CNN pundits and an AP reporter were extremely triggered by an alleged use of the phrase "Let's Go Brandon" at the end of a Southwest Airlines flight from Houston to Albuquerque. People wanted the pilot summarily fired. One CNN pundit bizarrely compared "Let's Go Brandon" to "Long Live ISIS."
A black professor told The Root that white people are villainous and should be removed from Earth. And we explore the farce of "independent fact checking" with Brad Slager of RedState and Townhall.
Liberals and their media enablers have a bad habit of complaining conservatives have started "phony trumped-up culture wars." But in reality, the left almost always starts a cultural revolution, and then attacks anyone who resists as a phony.
MSNBC host Brian Williams told black leftist Baratunde Thurston that the press corps live in "blue dots" and don't understand the country "beyond the last exit for a Whole Foods." But they never change!
CNN's pre-scripted, pre-screened "town hall" with Joe Biden felt like bumper bowling, protecting the president from gutter balls and gaffes. Then: what's going on with Dave Chappelle and cancel culture and comedy with Christian Toto of HollywoodInToto.com and the Right On Hollywood Podcast.
Politico reported President Biden has granted 10 interviews as president, none since Labor Day. At this point, Trump had done 57, and Obama 131. The media haven't found democracy dying in darkness, even with only three interviews with print outlets.
CNN's Brian Stelter was unhappy on Sunday morning that Mollie Hemingway was promoting her book "Rigged" on media bias and Big Tech censorship in the 2020 campaign. In the same hour, Hemingway was on Fox News underlining that the Democrats haven't really accepted a loss in the presidential campaign since Dukakis in 1988.…
The networks that are still obsessing over January 6 weren't talking about leftist climate protesters "occupying" the Interior Department this week and fighting with police. (The cops aren't heroes any more.) Plus Geoff Dickens discusses all the Hunter Biden scandal stories the networks are ignoring.…
The Daily Wire broke it, and Fox News put it on television. A 9th-grade girl was allegedly raped in a Loudoun County (Virginia) high school by a "gender-fluid" male in a skirt. A month later, a contentious Loudoun County school board meeting on transgender policy included a denial that anything happened in their schools.…
CNN and MSNBC lament the media's role in Biden's polling decline. Brian Williams claimed "really crappy reporting" is to blame. Brian Stelter claimed it was irresponsible to push the message "Democrats in disarray" when they can't pass their agenda.
A new Quinnipiac poll showed Joe Biden's approval rating at a dismal 38 percent. Naturally, the networks responded to this bad news by either ignoring it or mentioning it for ten seconds.
The liberal media never tire of anti-Trump "tell all" memoirs, so ex-Melania aide Stephanie Grisham is a hot guest on "news" shows. Plus Katie Couric's forthcoming memoir underlines she's really Catty Katie.
Fox News Channel debuted on October 7, 1996, so they're celebrating 25 years. But CNN host Brian Stelter trashed Fox as a network full of "darkness," a badly clogged heart of the GOP.
The news media have done through dramatic changes since the 1980s, through the rise of the internet and social media and Fox News. Rich Noyes shares his thoughts on his last day as research director for the MRC.
Generals used to specialize in fighting wars. But it seems like under Trump, Gen. Mark Milley was speaking to every liberal journalist writing an anti-Trump book. You wonder if Afghanistan would have turned out better if our top general wasn’t so busy “exposing” the president to help the liberals own the best-seller lists.…
President Biden claimed in a tweet that "My Build Back Better agenda coasts zero dollars." Since they plan to raise taxes to pay for it, somehow it costs "zero dollars." Journalists like Washington Post economics columnist Catherine Rampell picked up this lame argument.
The media are in the tank for Black Lives Matter, as they energetically disguise how radical they are. Heritage Foundation senior fellow Mike Gonzalez rips away the facade in his new book "BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution."
The hottest recent topic at NewsBusters is the Fake News about border agents whipping illegal Haitian immigrants at the southern border. There are no whips, only reins for horses. Where are the fact checkers to correct the media?
The New York Times reported less than 100 protesters at a "Justice for J6" rally that was hyped for days in advance by CNN and MSNBC. How embarrassing for people who describe themselves as the "reality-based press."
Fox reporter Bill Melugin reported over dramatic drone footage about 10,000 illegal immigrants surging into Texas. Team Biden responded by banning drones in the area. Will anyone in the liberal media object?
