‘Journalism’: CNN Mocks Trump ‘Bracing For Beef-Free Menu’ While In India

February 25, 2020 by

1

By Kristine Marsh ~ If there was just one article that encapsulated how CNN’s obsession with attacking President Trump borders on parody, this might be it. The news network was mocked on Twitter over this hard-hitting article bashing Trump… for eating cheeseburgers. The Pulitzer Prize-worthy headline read, ‘I have never seen him eat a vegetable:’ Trump […]

Epic Fail In Local Stations’ Reading Of Mock Asiana 214 Pilots’ Names Is At Least Half On NTSB

July 13, 2013 by

0

By Tom Blumer ~ Late this afternoon, an anchor at Oakland TV station KTVU unfortunately read four offensive and insensitive mock Asian-sounding names and identified them as the pilots of Asiana Flight 214, which crash landed at San Franscisco Airport last weekend. A third crash victim died today. While the station deserves plenty of blame for failing to […]

Did Mark Scott Hear Australia’s ABC Network’s Latest Global Warming Groupthink?

July 8, 2013 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Australia’s current ABC TV Network managing director Mark Scott in May denied his former chairman, Maurice Newman, had complained about ABC “groupthink” on global warming: He was talking broadly around the media. It wasn’t a specific criticism of the ABC. That was an amazing misstatement. Newman actually wrote directly to Scott […]

Forbes Lists America’s 20 ‘Most Miserable Cities’; Guess What The Vast Majority Have In Common?

February 24, 2013 by

2

By Tom Blumer ~ Forbes just published its 20 Most Miserable Cities List for 2013. The magazine left off several obviously more “worthy” contenders, perhaps because its decisions to include and exclude certain criteria were, to say the least, more than a little odd. I have listed the magazine’s top twenty following the jump, along […]

Nets Reluctant To Characterize Obama’s Inaugural Speech As ‘Liberal,’ See ‘Meditation On Freedom And Equality’

January 22, 2013 by

1

By Brent Baker ~ “Analysts on the left and the right are calling President Obama’s second inaugural address the most liberal speech he has delivered in office,” FNC’s Bret Baier announced at the top of Monday’s Special Report. Those on the left and right may, but that didn’t include the reporters on the ABC and […]

Tilting the Newtown ‘Conversation’

December 23, 2012 by

1

By Brent Bozell ~ It’s too hard to try and make sense of a senseless event. Adam Lanza’s merciless slaughter in Connecticut has forced everyone with a microphone to insist we have a “national conversation” about why this happens. But this urgent need to talk is not an excuse for a reckless discussion. Sadly, that […]

WashPost’s Santa: ‘Guns Were Designed to Make People Die, to Make People Cry’

December 23, 2012 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ For all those liberals who were upset that “Fox & Friends” interviewed a Santa Claus about the “War on Christmas,” the media tends to balance out it Santas. In Friday’s Washington Post, columnist Petula Dvorak offered a piece headlined “Santa’s heart is heavy.” “It’s even tougher for Santa this year when […]

NPR Deeply Enjoys ‘Playing With Fire’ with ‘The Basic Tenets of Christianity’

December 8, 2012 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ As if a puffy seven-minute-plus story on Morning Edition wasn’t enough publicity for Irish novelist Colm Toibin’s abrasive takedown of the Virgin Mary, NPR’s Terry Gross offered another promotional 45 minutes on Monday’s Fresh Air. There’s nothing NPR likes better than taking this humble, devout disciple and transforming her into some […]

The Malicious Mangling of the Virgin Mary

November 18, 2012 by

1

By Brent Bozell ~ A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate, and die. But in that vision she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman […]

Huh? USA Today Hypes Insurance Company’s Claims: Global Warming ‘Targeting’ America

October 11, 2012 by

0

By Scott Whitlock ~ A front page story in USA Today on Wednesday hyperbolically pushed recent storms as proof of global warming, warning, “Weather disasters target N. America.” (Weather disasters are targeting America?) Citing a study by a Munich-based insurance firm, reporter Doyle Rice hyped, “The number of natural disasters per year has been rising […]

‘Mainstream’ Media Making A Desperate Last Stand?

October 6, 2012 by

0

By Christopher Adamo ~ In a particularly noxious September 30 article entitled “Tired Cries of Bias Don’t Help Romney,” New York Times columnist David Carr made a ludicrous effort to deflect conservative animosity towards the “mainstream” media. He contended that it is misplaced, and likely just an outgrowth of the frustration ostensibly felt by those […]

Romney Refers to Benghazi as a Terrorist Attack; AP Treats as News, Acts As If Obama Admin Has Said That All Along

September 26, 2012 by

1

By Tom Blumer ~ There is clearly no embarrassment threshold at the Associated Press, aka the Administration’s Press. In a dispatch today, an unbylined AP report headlined “Romney: Benghazi a ‘Terrorist Attack'” seems to act as if this is some kind of revelation to the GOP nominee even though everyone except Obama administration insiders desperately […]

Distrusting the Press

By Alan Caruba ~ Some of the happiest years of my youth, after college and the U.S. Army, were spent as a journalist. My first job was as a reporter for a weekly newspaper and, after the editor left to join a daily six months later I became the editor. That was my first insight into […]

The BPA Wars: Junk Science and Junk Journalism

September 20, 2012 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ On Tuesday, September 18, FoxNews.com posted an article by Alex Crees, a health news reporter, “Chemical BPA linked to obesity in children, teens.” If Ms. Crees had done any research to verify the facts she recounted in “a new study”, she would have known it was yet another bogus effort to […]

By Matthew Sheffield ~ The controversy surrounding Vice President Joe Biden’s offensive claim that Republicans want to enslave black Americans has become such a concern to the Obama White House that the veep’s staff have resorted to trying to directly censor the news coverage about him. In what is widely believed to be an unprecedented […]

Politico’s Martin Goes Snide on Ryan: Mr. Wienermobile ‘Slinging Cheap Margaritas’

August 12, 2012 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ Politico’s Jonathan Martin is putting on his “cracker counties” snob act again in attacking Paul Ryan’s resume, much like Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker, only meaner. This was how it started: “Flipping burgers at McDonald’s, steering the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, slinging cheap margaritas, and toning abs and pecs. That’s about […]

Soros-Funded Propaganda Machine Think Progress Falsely Claims Global Warming Melted Street Lights in Oklahoma

August 3, 2012 by

By Noel Sheppard ~ So eager are the shills at the George Soros-funded far-left website Think Progress to find evidence of global warming that on Thursday they falsely blamed melting street lights in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on the heat. As originally reported by TP’s Stephen Lacey: Here’s a picture from Stillwater, Oklahoma, where temperatures will reach […]

By Pam Meister ~ The horrific attack by (alleged) gunman James Holmes at an Aurora, Colorado movie theater last week was naturally big news – and naturally, media outlets rushed to cover the tragedy as it unfolded. As of this writing, 12 people are dead, including several children, and 59 were wounded, many in critical […]

AP ‘Analysis’ Fails to Recognize the Declaration-Constitution Linkage

July 5, 2012 by

By Tom Blumer ~ In an analysis piece which, based on its title (“In divided era, what does July 4th mean?”), was as predictable as heat in July, Ted Anthony, who is tasked with writing “about American culture” at the Associated Press, attempted to explain, 236 years in, where what he claims is “the only […]

AP: Hot Weather in Summer Caused by Global Warming

July 4, 2012 by

1

By Matthew Sheffield ~ If it weren’t so distortive of the political system, liberal media bias would be downright hilarious, particularly when it’s manifested in journalists’ ability to turn on a dime and engage in rhetoric that they previously condemn when used by others. You can’t help but smile after reading Associated Press reporter Seth […]

(Australia’s) ABC TV Suffers Nuclear Contamination

July 1, 2012 by

By Andrew Bolt ~ Another scary (Australian) ABC TV report, from their Current Affairs flagship program, 7.30, on Fukushima’s reactors, which still haven’t managed to sicken a single person: LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: One more major earthquake in Japan and the nation could face a nuclear disaster 10 times the scale of Chernobyl. That’s what experts […]

Bias in Even the Smallest Things

June 2, 2012 by

0

By Matthew Sheffield ~ Sometimes it’s the little things that reveal the persistent liberal Democratic bias in the elite media. Writing in the American Spectator, Jeffrey Lord notes that the recent media kerfuffle over the fact that Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, enjoys riding horses is actually demonstrative of how journalists seemingly cannot help themselves. You […]
