Media Reality Check
STUDY: How TV News Helped Joe Biden Sell $1.9 Trillion Spending Spree
A Democratic Congress and a Democratic President just combined to pass a massive $1.9 trillion spending bill sold as a solution to the economic woes caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to a compliant media, they had an easy job of it: Instead of scrutinizing the bill’s spending choices, the broadcast networks built their coverage around its most popular provision as well as sympathetic…
Maddow Fawns Over Biden's COVID Relief Bill: 'A Big F-ing Deal'
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow unabashedly conceded that after four years of a Republican president, "I'm getting cattier and pettier with each passing day." Maddow spent over five minutes of her opening monologue gushing about the Biden administration’s debt-raising, $1.9 trillion Coronavirus-relief bill. Maddow concluded her rant by describing the explicitly partisan bill as “a big F…
STUDY: TV Smothers Cuomo Nursing Home Deaths With Harassment Charges
Literally thousands of New Yorkers died in the state’s nursing homes during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic, but a new Media Research Center study shows the national media are much less interested in covering that horrifying scandal than the harassment accusations against Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Welcoming ‘Refreshing’ Biden, Cursing ‘Horrible’ Republicans
Journalists still have the warm and fuzzies when it comes to Joe Biden. They spent February welcoming the “refreshing” Biden White House by tossing softballs to him in interviews and penning adoring essays about the new president “playing MarioKart with his family.” In stark contrast, the likes of CNN anchor Don Lemon crushed conservatives as being “horrible” since Reagan. The following…
The Media’s Shameful Cover-Up of Andrew Cuomo’s Nursing Home Scandal
The scandal surrounding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mishandling of nursing home patients during the early weeks of the coronavirus pandemic was never a secret. Yet in their zeal last year to promote Cuomo as a counter to President Trump, broadcast news, cable news, daytime talk shows and late night comics all preferred to tout Cuomo as a pandemic hero, instead of telling the truth about…
DESPICABLE! The Ugliest Limbaugh Obits by Lefty Journalists and Celebs
Sadly, the Left’s hatred and venom against Rush Limbaugh only grew over the decades, and it spilled over in an ugly display within minutes (in some cases) of his passing last Wednesday. The following are the most disgusting attacks on the conservative broadcast giant in the last week by lefty journalists and Hollywood celebrities:
FLASHBACK: Rush Was a Threat to Them, So They Tried to Destroy Him
The following are just a few of the most hate-filled attacks on Rush Limbaugh over the years (as culled from the MRC’s archives)
Operation ‘Deprogram’: Time for a ‘Cleansing’ of Conservatives
It didn’t matter that most Republicans and conservatives decried the horrible January 6 Capitol Hill riots. Liberal journalists nevertheless exploited the event to target them as “cultists” who needed to be “deprogrammed.” The following are some of the worst (non-Inauguration) outbursts from liberal journos (and celebrities) over the last month.
Devout Catholic? The Media vs. Biden’s Real Record
President Biden is a “devout Catholic,” the liberal media say. But there’s consternation among some U.S. Catholic leaders about how Biden’s policies directly contradict Church teachings.
One Last Time: Bye-Bye Tom Brokaw!
On Friday, Tom Brokaw formally retired from NBC News. If you are confused it’s because he already had one retirement when he vacated the NBC Nightly News anchor chair for Brian Williams back in 2004. But like a college professor who awkwardly still hung out with kids decades younger than him he hung around the NBC offices in an Anchor Emeritus role. We here at NewsBusters offer on…
FLASHBACK: In 2001, Media Instructed GOP to Compromise with Liberals
Twenty years ago, after a disputed election and with a 50-50 Senate, the liberal media preached that President George W. Bush should seek “compromise” and forge better ties with Democrats. But this year, there’s been an almost complete absence of media voices urging President Joe Biden to jettison his liberal campaign agenda in favor of bipartisanship.
Media Cheer Biden’s Cabinet of “Firsts,” Ignore Their Liberalism
Listen to the liberal media, and you’d be very, very impressed that President Biden has nominated a “historic” Cabinet with “vast experience,” “expertise and diversity.” With all of the media’s fixation on race, gender and sexual orientation, you might never know that the group would also form perhaps the most left-wing Cabinet in U.S. history.
A FAR CRY FROM FOUR YEARS AGO: ‘Poetic’ Biden Delivers ‘Chills’
The exuberance began even before Joe Biden was officially sworn-in. The night before the Inauguration, CNN’s David Chalian claimed the light staging along the Lincoln Memorial’s reflecting pool was like “Joe Biden’s arms embracing America.” Biden’s arrival at Andrews Air Force Base literally gave a New York Times editor “chills.”
Rolling Out the Red Carpet for Biden and Harris
Look for the libs in the media to turn it up to 11 when it comes to effusive praise of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris during their Inauguration coverage. The following are just some of the over-the-top adulation for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris dating back to when Biden first announced he was running for President.
