PolitiFact Tags It FALSE That Biden And Harris ‘Distrusted COVID-19 Vaccines’ In 2020

July 27, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ PolitiFact’s aggressive defense of Biden and Harris popped up again on Friday. They tagged it as “False” for a Tik-Tok video that “Says Joe Biden and Kamala Harris distrusted COVID-19 vaccines.” The quotes in the video are all accurate, but they caused Facebook to flag the video as “Missing Context.” As […]

CNN’s Darcy Promotes NAACP CEO Wishing Fox News Could Be ‘BANNED’

July 26, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ When CNN’s Oliver Darcy takes the wheel of their “Reliable Sources” newsletter, it seems to begin with a raging editorial. On Friday night, it came under the headline “How Fox race baits.” That’s interesting. This came about 24 hours after CNN’s Don Lemon suggested to President Biden the Republicans wanted to […]

CNN’s Lemon Of A Town Hall Meeting

July 24, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ CNN became apoplectic whenever Donald Trump called them “fake news,” but on July 21, they offered President Biden a nationally televised boost that can accurately be described as a “fake town hall.” A real town hall would sell tickets in a city like Cincinnati and let the locals mix it up […]

Mark Levin’s Call To Rebut Homegrown ‘American Marxism’

July 17, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ We’re six months into the Biden administration, and the liberal media are still obsessing over new books full of titillating tales from anonymous sources about President Trump. Meanwhile, Mark Levin’s newest best-seller – provocatively titled American Marxism — is too counter-revolutionary for these journalists to take seriously. CNN’s Brian Stelter touted two […]

Come On, Fact Checkers, Republicans Did Not Defund The Police

July 16, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ Here’s an easy test to see whether fact-checking websites can make any claim to be “independent” and nonpartisan in tone. Biden staffers claimed Republicans “defunded the police.” That’s a bald-faced lie. On the June 27 Fox News Sunday, White House aide Cedric Richmond claimed that because Republicans uniformly voted against Biden’s massive […]

Truth: Democrats Have A ‘Much Thinner Skin’ With The Press, ‘Expect You To Be On Their Side’

July 13, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ David Rutz at Fox News reported that liberal Russian-born American journalist Julia Ioffe offered an inside look at liberal-media frustration at being so carefully managed by Team Biden. Once again, courageous reporters complain anonymously. This was the hottest quote from her “Tomorrow Will Be Worse” newsletter. “Democrats in general have a […]

SHOCKING Rasmussen Poll: 58 Percent Agree That Media Are ‘Enemy Of The People’

July 10, 2021 by

3

By Tim Graham ~ This is shocking. The latest phone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports found voters overwhelmingly believe “fake news” is a problem, and a majority — 58 percent! — agree with former President Donald Trump that the media have become “the enemy of the people.” To be precise, Rasmussen found that 58% […]

WashPost Art Critic SLAMS Statue Of Liberty: ‘Shrinking Appeal,’ A Symbol Of Hypocrisy

July 5, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ Sunday’s Washington Post is marking the Fourth of July by metaphorically miniaturizing the Statue of Liberty to a tiny, hypocritical figurine that sits on a fingertip. The author of this flaming bag of rhetorical feces is Philip Kennicott, the Post‘s perenially dyspeptic art and architecture critic. The headline is “Lady Liberty’s […]

New York Times ‘Best Seller’ List Now Skips Over Michael Knowles Best Seller

July 4, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ The New York Times best-seller list is an unreliable source of bad math, especially when conservative authors do well. We’ve seen it before with David Limbaugh and Dinesh D’Souza. We’ve seen it with Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino. Now it’s happening to Michael Knowles and his new book Speechless. It hit #1 on […]

Jill Biden, ‘Every Inch A Goddess’

July 3, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ So much of what people call “news” isn’t hard facts. There’s a less favorable word for it: Publicity. When Democrats rule, news meets a dam, and publicity overflows. On June 29, ABC’s Good Morning America aired several minutes of this, swooning over Jill Biden, promoting a preposterously positive cover story in the […]

By Tim Graham ~ We’ve seen the Grammy Awards repeatedly grant their Best Spoken Word Album award to Democrat stars — Jimmy Carter three times, Barack Obama twice, Michelle Obama once, Bill and Hillary Clinton once each — but now the Democrats want an Emmy award. In Sunday’s Arts & Style section, Washington Post drama […]

Guess Where The American Media Ranks In Consumer Trust? LAST In The World

June 25, 2021 by

3

By Tim Graham ~ Ed Morrissey at Hot Air reports that Rick Edmonds of the Poynter Institute, the parent organization of PolitiFact and “mainstream” media think tank, is disturbed at the latest evidence that Americans don’t trust the “mainstream” media — because it’s not. It’s been “reporting” on America like it was under a dangerous threat of a […]

Ban Billionaire Jeff Bezos From Earth?

June 24, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ One of the most curious things about America is how many of our most celebrated billionaires sound like socialists. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett love talking about how more and more of their wealth should be taxed. Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post, enabling it to wage relentless war on the […]

‘Critical Race Theory’ Critic Chris Rufo SHREDS WashPost Hit Piece In Twitter Thread

June 23, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ The Washington Post bumbled through a Saturday article attacking Christopher Rufo, an investigative journalist and prominent opponent of “critical race theory” in our schools. Rufo took to Twitter to accuse the Post of five lies in the article by reporters Laura Meckler and Josh Dawsey. At least three versions of the […]

Exposing Media Bias Is A ‘Bad Faith’ Argument?

June 17, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ The arrogance of the liberal media can be measured by their dismissal of all conservative criticism as “bad faith” attacks on the press. Assuming that conservative critics are dishonest and disreputable cynics is a common trope of CNN’s Brian Stelter when liberal journalists become mired in scandal. In a June 15 […]

The Racial ‘Crisis’ In Wisconsin

June 13, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ The accusation that America is deeply, irredeemably stained by systemic racism is not up for debate. No white person can be innocent. Your individual conscience is irrelevant. Each one of us is a white supremacist benefitting from a white supremacist structure. We must confess our “white privilege.” So if we’re so […]

PolitiFact Isn’t Partisan? Pants On Fire!

June 10, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ At their recent “United Facts of America Festival,” PolitiFact interviewed Sen. Mark Warner (D.-Va). Their executive director Aaron Sharockman began with some light humor, telling Warner he was one of the more accurate members of Congress. Sharockman complimented Warner for having zero “Pants on Fire” rated claims. Warner joked “That feels like it […]

The Media Proclaim Themselves ‘Infrastructure’

June 5, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ Long before the pandemic, the local-news business had been in a tailspin. Newspapers across the country lost classified-advertising revenue thanks to Internet sites like Craigslist. Terrestrial radio stations lost their audience to iTunes and then Spotify. Most commercial radio stations don’t offer news any more. Most Americans under 35 think of […]

Washington Post ‘Fact Checker’ Headline LIES On Biden’s Coal-Miner Ancestor LIE

May 31, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ Fact-checkers came running to President Biden’s defense again. In Sunday’s Washington Post, “Fact Checker” Glenn Kessler wrote an article headlined “Biden’s claim that his ‘great grand-pop’ was a coal miner mostly pans out.” But if you read the actual article…it doesn’t pan out. Kessler admits that Biden’s great grandfather Edward Blewitt was a […]

The Media’s Embarrassing Incuriosity About Wuhan

May 29, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ Pardon the whiplash! It feels like the media suddenly decided the theory that the deadly coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan is now considered plausible when it was aggressively dismissed by the press as a “fringe theory” in 2020. It’s not a mystery why this happened. The Democrats thought the […]

New York Times Warns: Anti-Semitism No Longer A ‘Right Wing’ Trump Thing

May 28, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ The New York Times front page on Thursday included an article by Ruth Graham and Liam Stack headlined “Anti-Semitism Surges in Wake of Gaza.” They pronounced it scary that anti-Semitic violence is no longer just a “right-wing phenomenon” that was “emboldened” by President Trump. Until the latest surge, anti-Semitic violence in […]

Fox News Viewers Outperform CNN, MSNBC Watchers On News Knowledge

May 24, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ Stephan Dinan at the Washington Times reported that Fox News viewers outperformed viewers of CNN or MSNBC on several policy issues. Those favoring the liberal networks are much more likely to believe the “climate emergency” media hype that we are “on pace for extinction within 100 years.” Relatively few people could place […]

America Declines, Media Obsess Over GOP Squabbles

May 15, 2021 by

By Tim Graham ~ The front page of the May 13 Washington Times was sobering: “President Biden’s second 100 days are off to a woeful start, including a gas shortage for much of the East Coast, a surge of inflation, a slowdown in hiring despite a record number of job openings, renewed fighting in the […]

By Tim Graham ~ White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted to her old Obama administration colleague David Axelrod on his CNN podcast The Axe Files that the White House staff tries to tell President Biden not to take questions from reporters.
