Media Reality Check
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.

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.

Inauguration 2021: Completely Different, Yet Same Old Bias

FLASHBACK: When the Media Championed Election Objectors
Democrats in Congress have protested every Republican presidential election for the past 20 years, without the media accusing them of attacking democracy itself. Yet in 2004, when California Senator Barbara Boxer joined with Ohio Representative Stephanie Tubbs-Jones to object to the certification of Ohio’s electors — as some Republicans pledge to do on Wednesday — the media treated the…
REWIND: The Media’s Four-Year War Against the Trump Presidency
While every President has their critics in the press, the Trump presidency has been unique in that a massive percentage of the media — hosts, columnists, commentators, contributors, anchors and working reporters — openly mock and disparage the President of the United States, often to the cheers of their brethren.

Where’s Hunter? Biden Scandal Still AWOL from Network News
