Nets Fretted Over ‘Staunch Conservative’ Picks, Skimp on Lib Labels
Joe Biden on February 25 nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson to fill the vacancy of Justice Stephen Breyer.

Democratic picks are rarely labeled as extreme liberals.
Nets Abandon Border Crisis, Obsess Over Immigration Drama in Australia
The spiraling crisis on America’s southern border is spreading, rippling to all parts of the country with impacts on crime and national security.

NBC Actually Covers Uyghur Genocide, But Breezes Over Forced Abortions
After NBC News’s morning and evening shows spent only 12 minutes, 22 seconds (in a year) on China’s horrific genocide of the Uyghurs, NBC actually managed to equal that coverage of the Uyghurs in just one night and morning of their Beijing Olympics coverage. However, there were other moments in the coverage that sounded like they were cribbed from a Chi-Com’s propaganda booklet.
COMPROMISED: Nets Spend Only 13 Minutes (In a Year) On Uyghur Genocide

STUDY: PolitiFact's Much More Likely to Defend Biden Than Check Him
PolitiFact begs for donations by proclaiming "Our only agenda is to publish the truth so you can be an informed participant in democracy." But this "independent fact-checker" routinely betrays a tilt by coming out more aggressively to “correct” attacks on Democrats. In Biden's first year, MRC analysts found Biden was fact-checked 40 times, while Biden critics were checked on 230 occasions.…
Nets Forgive Swearing Joe: ‘Not Easy’ Being Prez! Just 'Frustrated!'

STUDY: How the Networks Buried One Year of Biden’s Disasters, Failures
As of January 20th, 2022, Joe Biden will have completed his first year as president. He will do so deeply unpopular, cratering to the mid 30s in two recent polls.

They have ignored controversies involving Hunter Biden, as well as extremist nominees from the…
STUDY: NBC, CBS Bury Phrase 'Islamic Extremist' After Synagogue Attack
From Saturday night through Monday morning, the networks extensively covered Malik Faisal Akram taking hostages at a Texas synagogue.

Priorities: CNN Spends Almost 3x More on January 6 Than Inflation News
On Wednesday afternoon, the House Select Committee on January 6 requested cooperation from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Naturally, CNN returned January 6 to its prime position as, from 3:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Eastern, the Jeff Zucker-led network spent 97 minutes obsessing over what it (and other developments) meant for the probe.

CNN and MSNBC spent over 1,600 minutes Thursday obsessing over the first anniversary of the January 6 riot on the U.S. Capitol, but it failed to translate into any success in the ratings department.

Libs Blame ‘Governor’ Youngkin for Highway Mess, Nets Skip Actual Gov
As a winter storm slammed Virginia on Monday, a disaster developed on the busy I-95 highway. Thousands of motorists, including babies, were trapped in freezing temperatures for 12 hours or more, low on gas and food. All of this with no help seemingly coming from the state’s governor. Liberals on Twitter took to blasting new Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin. Except... he’s not governor and…
