NewsBusters Executive Editor Tim Graham discusses the left's media bias.
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?
Bob Woodward is offering a third anonymously-sourced trashing of Team Trump, and the networks are lapping it up and cheering the people who allegedly undermined this allegedly nutty president. Don't believe everything you read.
Team Biden underlined the president would be "deliberately staying in the background" of 9/11 ceremonies, but he still managed to say some wacky stuff on camera. Like implying all the 9/11 victims would despair at people putting "F Biden" on a protest sign.
Instead of discussing his failed Afghanistan policy on the weekend of 9/11, President Biden tried to change the subject and please the Democrat base by getting out the "hammer" of vaccine mandates for government, and even for businesses of more than 100 employees. Much of this might be overturned, but the media celebrated it anyway.…
Too many "mainstream" media voices fell for another hoax from Rolling Stone magazine, that somehow "horse dewormer overdoses" were "overwhelming Oklahoma hospitals." The "fact checkers" went soft, and the "misinformation" reporters went missing.
ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, and MSNBC all avoided mentioning a Reuters story on a phone call between President Biden and then-Afghanistan president Ashraf Ghani where Biden implored Ghani to project victory over the Taliban, whether it was "true or not."
Curtis Houck and Nick Fondacaro discuss the litany of liberal journalists that have provided admirable and stinging coverage holding the Biden administration to account on Afghanistan. But will it last? The turn has already begun. Plus: the new Geoff Dickens study on the media covering the crime wave in big Democrat cities.…
The news environment for President Biden is bad right now, but it could be a lot worse...if President Trump had won a second term. Every crying war widow and dissenting colonel would be magnified intensely.
Politico reported Team Biden gave the Taliban a list of Americans and Afghan allies to help them get evacuated. Does that sound smart? Maybe not, because the media tried to ignore that story.
On Sunday's "Meet the Press," NBC's Chuck Todd noted Biden's approval rating was sinking. But NBC's evening newscast and morning news show didn't offer one peep about the bad news.
The media are trying to hold Biden accountable on Afghanistan, but some people like Brian Stelter are crying this is "over the top" negative. He wants the "Everything is fine" sound to the news...like you can hear on NPR.
Seth Meyers at NBC and Stephen Colbert at CBS often sound more like liberal talk-show hosts than comedians. Meyers touted Biden as just the "salty grandpa" to insist we had to leave Afghanistan.
Mediaite and Vogue magazine both wrote up glowing interviews with White House press secretary Jen Psaki and how she earned the hashtag #PsakiBomb for letting Peter Doocy have it. Curtis Houck discusses the latest rough briefings about Afghanistan.
The ABC, CBS, and NBC evening news shows almost totally skipped the border crisis in July. They're tougher on Afghanistan...but when did they push Biden on this in 2020?
A new Washington Post TV critic evaluated Meghan McCain's role on "The View" as the "love-to-hate reality villain." And CNN's Media Unit thinks the new hosts of 'Jeopardy' are 'so, so wrong."
CNN devoted an hour to the special "Being AOC," and Dana Bash energetically celebrated her uncompromising (socialist) confidence. Plus: NB's Mark Finkelstein on the worst breaking bluster of "Morning Joe."
Glenn Kessler, the chief "Fact Checker" at The Washington Post, was exposed as he attempted a hit piece on Chris Rufo, the leading critic of Critical Race Theory, He asserted to one potential source on LinkedIn that Rufo was ripping her off and her anonymous tipster. Then he got exposed, and had to give up the "fact check." Facts weren't helpful.…
The Washington Post has "honored" Fox White House reporter Peter Doocy by highlighting his exchanges with Biden press secretary Jen Psaki in the briefing room. Doocy gets "fact checked"....but in 2018, the Post didn't check on CNN's Jim Acosta as he told them he was all about the facts, not about damaging Trump.…
The New York Attorney General's report on sexual harassment by Gov. Andrew Cuomo included new details into how extensively CNN prime-time host Chris Cuomo advised his brother. CNN seems to have no problem with this massive conflict of interest.
Sunday turned Reliably Kooky when CNN's Brian Stelter discussed the "Cult of Trump" and asked a liberal California Democrat about how much Trump resembled Jim Jones, the cult leader who led 900 followers into a mass suicide in 1978.
Nick Fondacaro and Curtis Houck discuss the coming reimplementation of the dreaded mask mandates, President Biden snapping at a Fox News reporter, and CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo getting called out on his own show. They also examine CNN’s double standard on the COVID safety of protests as they chide pro-freedom gatherings in Cuba.…
On today’s podcast, Curtis Houck and Nick Fondacaro discuss the return of the mask. No, not the 90’s R&B hit Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison, but the return of the CDC’s demand that everyone return to wearing facemasks including those of us who have played by the rules and have gotten vaccinated already. We also cover the theatrical proceedings…
The night crew makes it return as Curtis Houck and Nicholas Fondacaro will be serving as co-hosts for the week with Tim Graham out of the office. On today’s episode, the guys went through the liberal media’s silence on Hunter Biden’s latest escapade, Carl Bernstein calling Trump a “war criminal,” Tucker Carlson being harassed in public, and the res…
CNN's latest softball "town hall" was a big target for top fact checkers. PolitiFact came rushing to Biden's defense on his loose talk on banning guns, tagging a tweet from the House Republicans as "False". But Biden was given a "Mostly True" and a "Half True" that was false.
The Tokyo Olympics are underway, so how will NBC cover protesting American Olympians kneeling, as the women’s soccer team did? Is it okay to root against protesting American athletes? Or is that unpatriotic? That’s our question as the Games begin.
NPR posted a story on Monday headlined "Outrage As A Business Model: How Ben Shapiro Is Using Facebook To Build An Empire." They lamented "In 2021, Ben Shapiro rules Facebook." Move over, Zuckerberg!
The Washington Post and Time magazine have both uncorked hit pieces on Fox News primetime star Tucker Carlson as a terrible source of misinformation and "White grievance." It will only help him win his time slot.
The supposedly secret sale of Hunter Biden's amateur paintings -- where the White House and Hunter Biden won't know who is overpaying -- finally drew a little attention on network news.
Trump-hating journalist Julia Ioffe talked to distraught anonymous reporters about how Democrats are so thin-skinned and can’t handle any media scrutiny and how Team Biden is so “opaque” and stifling. Can’t reporters just hold Biden accountable and force them to respond?
Michael Avenatti, the former lawyer to porn star Stormy Daniels who used to be omnipresent in the Trump-hating media, was sentenced to 30 months in prison. But the networks either said nothing or just uttered a few brief sentences.
The liberal networks competed furiously to get the first interview with "1619 Project" creator Nikole Hannah-Jones as she showily spurned a tenure offer from her alma mater. CBS's Gayle King won the puffery contest.
MSNBC hosts Joy Reid and Chris Hayes were fiercely unhappy with the Supreme Court upholding Arizona's voting rules, that the conservative majority were somehow dealing a "violent blow" to democracy. On screen, MSNBC argued the court's majority was "Republicans Against Democracy."
ABC, CBS, and NBC were bored over the breaking news that the New York city Board of Elections bungled vote-counting in the mayor's race. They mistakenly included 130,000 test ballots. New York-based journalists have assaulted the red states for dangerous disenfranchising moves, so what gives?
There's something about ballot-integrity laws that send liberal journalists off a cliff of panic. On Sunday's "Meet the Press," Yamiche Alcindor of PBS claimed it was an "existential crisis" on voting in America, when turnout in 2020 was historically large. She claimed Republicans want to squash all votes that aren't Republican votes. It's a kooky …
On June 24, Biden engaged with the press and uncorked some very strange whispering answers and made several racial gaffes about vaccine hesitancy. But the network newscasts that highlighted Trump gaffes or insults go quiet when Biden gets weird.
The network anchors warmly eulogized the Democrat "election reform" bill, and ripped Republicans for their "tough voting restrictions." They're not going to be happy when they lose.
As Catholic bishops in the U.S. plan to discuss and debate whether politicians could be denied communion for public stances against central Catholic teaching on matters like abortion, the media act like Democrat advertisers. 'Deeply Catholic' Joe is being trapped by people trying to "weaponize" the sacrament of communion.…
