The Press Endures Obama’s Unrequited Love

October 20, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Some years ago Bernard Goldberg wrote a book, “A Slobbering Love Affair With Obama”, about the way the press treated his 2008-9 campaign and election as President. The mainstream press continues to protect Obama, often rather blatantly. The curious thing about this is that it is not reciprocated. More and more, […]

A Dreadful Media Campaign

November 7, 2012 by


By Brent Bozell ~ Throughout the very long presidential election cycle, two trends remained consistent. The media lauded Obama no matter how horrendous his record, and they savaged Obama’s Republican contenders as ridiculous pretenders. From the start of the Republican race in 2011, every candidate who took the lead then took an unfair beating.  They […]

‘Mainstream’ Media Making A Desperate Last Stand?

October 6, 2012 by


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 […]

Taranto Discredits Media ‘Fact Checkers,’ Shows How They Amplify the Media’s Liberal Bias

September 9, 2012 by


By Brent Baker ~ “Writers have been bowing to the ‘fact checkers’ as submissively as Barack Obama upon meeting some anti-American dictator,” the Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto quipped in a devastating take-down of the rise of the news media’s so-called “fact checkers.” In “The Pinocchio Press: The bizarre rise of ‘fact checking’ propagandists” posted […]

Beware of the Mainstream Media

August 28, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ A recent outburst by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was a near classic example of how some members of the media are so over the moon about Obama that it serves as a reminder that their long knives are out for the Romney-Ryan ticket. Matthews’ man-crush on Obama is blatant, but I do […]

2012, A Year of Media Savagery

December 28, 2011 by


By Brent Bozell For those Republican presidential candidates who eventually conclude there is no path to the nomination, there is consolation in the notion that they won’t be the ones to face the brutal onslaught being prepared for the GOP king of the mountain by Team Obama and their army of “objective” media allies. This […]

Journalism’s Decline

August 18, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba I stopped my subscription for my local daily newspaper a couple of years ago. I just stopped subscribing to Bloomberg Business Week, thus saving $65 a year. I don’t know anyone who subscribes to either Newsweek or Time magazines. I receive The Wall Street Journal every morning because I like holding a newspaper in my […]

Rasmussen: Public’s Belief That Media Coverage Skews Left Still Strong

June 26, 2011 by

A new Rasmussen survey once again confirms the trend. Acccording to the poll, about two thirds of those surveyed (67 percent) said that political coverage will generally […]

August 4, 2009 by


Recently, former CBS News anchor Dan Rather spoke at an event where he expressed his wish that President Obama form a special White House commission to help save America’s media. Rather made the claim that “a truly free and independent press is the red beating heart of democracy and freedom.” “This is not something just […]

The Wheels Are Starting To Come Off Of The HOPE And CHANGE Bus

July 7, 2009 by


Yesterday, I submitted  my opinion that the Spirit of ’76 is not dead, where I pointed out that it appears that small-town America is growing weary, perhaps resentful, of President Obama and his Socialist policies. That in and of itself is enough to boost the spirits of a patriotic American like myself. Then I learned […]
