White House Fakery Defended By Fact Checkers

October 15, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ When is a fake setting not a fake setting? When Joe Biden sits in front of it. The “independent fact checkers” – a phrase that in itself strains credulity – leaped to defend President Biden after he received a COVID booster shot in the Old Executive Office Building on September 27. […]

Fiscal Conservatives Can’t Like The Polls

October 14, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ Democrats are feeling gloomy as their “infrastructure” bills are stuck in a fight between leftists and “centrists.” Many predict that if these huge spending bills could be passed, then the midterm prospects for Biden and his party would look much brighter. Will Saletan at Slate tweeted for the optimists: “Soon the […]

By Tim Graham ~ Can the mistrust of the media get much greater? Gallup pollsters reported on Thursday that American trust in the media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly has edged down four percentage points since last year to 36 percent, making this year’s reading the second lowest in Gallup’s trend.” Overall, just seven […]

Facebook, The New Evil Empire?

October 7, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ In the last few years, Facebook has become Public Enemy #1 in the media’s imagination, and Mark Zuckerberg is suddenly the creepy James Bond villain. Celebrated PBS filmmaker Ken Burns even ranted on a podcast that Zuckerberg was an “enemy of the state” who should be in jail. After Facebook went […]

WashPost Style Guide Updated To Curtail The Exclusionary Use Of ‘Pregnant Women’

October 5, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ The hottest trend in liberal media terminology continues! Luke Gentile at the Washington Examiner reported The Washington Post officially updated its stylebook to de-emphasize the term “pregnant women” in favor of “pregnant individuals” to reflect their aerobic efforts “striving to be as inclusive as possible.” The change was announced on Twitter on […]

The Media Root For Routing Republicans

October 2, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ Joe Biden ran for president – in part – on the idea of being a national unifier, as someone who could work across the aisle and strike a bipartisan compromise. But that’s not at all the way he’s governing. The media are fine with it. They’re rooting for routing Republicans. Let’s […]

NPR Perfection? Used ‘Pregnant People’ Or ‘Person’ Seven Times In Article

October 1, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ NPR achieved something truly “woke” in a story on Thursday. Jaclyn Diaz wrote an entire story on pregnant mothers and vaccines without ever using the word “woman” or “women,” but using “pregnant people” or “pregnant person” seven times. Even the headline stayed vague: “Are You Pregnant? The CDC Really Wants You To […]

By Tim Graham ~ They say when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When it comes to Vice President Kamala Harris, she can count on energetic admirers in the press who take on the task of making lemonade out of her lemons. Take Washington Post White House reporter Cleve Wootson Jr., who accentuated the […]

Rolling Stone Commits ‘Horse Dewormer’ Fraud

September 13, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ The liberal reporters on the “misinformation” beat and those “independent fact-checkers” are very aggressive about squashing information about COVID-19 that is either flat-out untrue or opposed to the (sometimes fluctuating) findings of government agencies. Sadly, these so-called guardians of truth aren’t as aggressive about narratives that mock anti-vaccine activists and COVID […]

Politico Feels Biden’s Pain In ‘Very Public Clash’ On Abortion With Catholic Hierarchy

September 8, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ On Sunday, Politico treated readers to yet another article on how President Biden is troubled by those pesky conservative Catholic bishops and laymen. The headline on Ruby Cramer’s article: ‘A Private Matter’: Joe Biden’s Very Public Clash With His Own Church The excuse for this rerun is the Texas law protecting […]

Breaking Wind Beneath Her Wings: Bette Midler Eggs On Women’s ‘Sex Strike’…AGAIN

September 7, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ Sister Toldjah at RedState is reminding us that actress Bette Midler is once again expressing her outrage at pro-life legislation (this time in Texas) by demanding all the ladies engage in a “sex strike” until the liberals win and abortions are as easily available as a manicure. You tell them, Sister: […]

WashPost Upset Conservative Defense Experts Slam Biden On Liberal TV Networks

September 5, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ Paul Mirengoff at Power Line ably called out Washington Post media reporter Jeremy Barr carrying water for all the left-wing media monitors. The Post headline is “TV news takes heat for relying on former defense officials as Afghanistan pundits.” But the “heat” is all cranky liberals. The Power Line headline is better: […]

‘Fact Checkers’ Rush To ‘Correct’ Grieving Parents Who Ripped Biden

September 4, 2021 by

1

By Tim Graham ~ America’s leading “fact checkers” describe themselves as “independent.” But watching their energetic defenses of Joe Biden’s politically damaging behavior reveals they are taking a side. In the first 100 days, I found PolitiFact evaluated Biden’s critics eight times more often than they “fact checked” the president. It was truly shocking when […]

COMICAL New York Magazine Hot Takes: ‘The Media Are Worse For Biden Than Trump’?

August 29, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ Most Americans have looked at the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and considered it an embarrassment to America. But flagrantly pro-Biden journalists are energetically spinning that everything is quite hunky-dory…right up until Thursday’s suicide bombing that killed 13 Marines and 169 civilians, as they still try to separate human remains. On Wednesday, […]

Cowardly Biden Hides From The Press On Afghanistan

August 21, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ The very supportive media environment around President Biden has turned suddenly sour over this administration’s shoddy handling of Afghanistan. This debacle shouldn’t be buried and ignored by the press, like they’ve tried to do with the border crisis. But Biden’s gone back to hiding as a strategy, as he did in […]

Ken Burns Rants That Mark Zuckerberg’s An ‘Enemy Of The State,’ Wants Him ‘In Jail’

August 5, 2021 by

2

By Tim Graham ~ Fox News media reporter Brian Flood reports PBS superstar filmmaker Ken Burns is swaggering around again and dropping bombs on Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg, suggested he’s an “enemy of the state” who should be in jail. Didn’t liberals hate this kind of “enemy of the people” talk, or is that just […]

You Can’t Be Friends With Conservatives?

July 31, 2021 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ One of the most obvious misconceptions about liberals today is that they personify tolerance. The Oxford Dictionary defines tolerance as “the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.” A recent poll by the Survey Center on American […]

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 […]

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 […]

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% […]
