In the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we discuss Black Lives Matter and the media with Heritage Foundation senior fellow Mike Gonzalez, who has written the hot new book BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution.
NewsBusters Podcast: Lies and Smears About Whips and Reins at Border
For our latest podcast, he hot topic on the liberal-bias front is the Fake News about the Border Patrol whipping Haitian immigrants at the southern border in Texas. There are no whips. There are only reins to control the horses. But the supposedly responsible, fact-based media -- including ABC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC -- have all been guilty of a false whipping narrative.
NewsBusters Podcast: 'Pro-Rioter Rally' in DC Fizzles, CNN Hardest Hit
On Sunday, The New York Times reported less than 100 protesters at a "Justice for J6" rally on Saturday that was hyped for days in advance by CNN and MSNBC. This had to be deeply embarrassing for people who describe themselves as the "reality-based press."
NewsBusters Podcast: Drone Strike! Biden Bans Fox Camera at the Border
In the latest edition of the NewsBusters Podcast, the hot story is Team Biden trying to shut down the Fox News camera on the border in Texas. Fox reporter Bill Melugin had to report that the Federal Aviation Administration ruled their drone had to be grounded. Conservative Twitter responded by imagining how the Stelters of the world might have responded if Trump grounded their drone…
NewsBusters Podcast: Nets Cheer Woodward's Latest Anti-Trump Mud Pail
Bob Woodward is offering a third anonymously-sourced trashing of Team Trump, and the networks are lapping it up and cheering the people who allegedly undermined this allegedly dangerous and deranged president. Don't believe everything you read.
NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Whistling Past Biden's 9/11 Gaffes
Team Biden underlined the president would be "deliberately staying in the background" of 9/11 ceremonies, but he still managed to say some wacky stuff on camera. Like implying all the 9/11 victims would despair at people putting "F Biden" on a protest sign. The media bury Biden gaffes, on 9/11 and every other day.
NewsBusters Podcast: Biden Changes The Subject with Vaccine Mandates
Instead of discussing his failed Afghanistan policy on the weekend of 9/11, President Biden tried to change the subject and please the Democrat base by getting out the "hammer" of vaccine mandates for government, and even for businesses of more than 100 employees. Much of this might be overturned, but the media celebrated it anyway.
NewsBusters Podcast: 'Facts First' Media Trip on Fake Ivermectin News
Sometimes terribly fake news emerges from the left. Over the long holiday weekend, too many "mainstream" media voices fell for another hoax from Rolling Stone magazine, that somehow "horse dewormer overdoses" were "overwhelming Oklahoma hospitals." Even the photo in the Rolling Stone tweet was fake. How discerning are supposedly smart lefties like Rachel Maddow or Joy Reid?…
NewsBusters Podcast: Networks Yawn at Biden Lecturing Afghan President
ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, and MSNBC all avoided mentioning a Reuters story on a July phone call between President Biden and then-Afghanistan president Ashraf Ghani where Biden implored Ghani to project the perception of victory over the Taliban, whether it was "true or not."
NewsBusters Podcast: Media Hang Tough on Afghanistan, But Can It Last?
With a torrent of news to discuss about the disastrous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, weekday evening/Sunday morning analyst Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro and I had plenty to talk about on Wednesday’s episode of the NewsBusters podcast. We first dove into litany of liberal journalists that have provided admirable and stinging coverage holding the Biden administration to account on…
NewsBusters Podcast: Imagine Media Covering Trump with Today's News
As the American war effort in Afghanistan ended, the news environment for President Biden is bad right now, but it could be a lot worse. Imagine how the press would react if all this happened after President Trump had won a second term. Every crying war widow and dissenting colonel would be magnified intensely.
NewsBusters Podcast: Nets Skip Biden Collusion with the Taliban...
Since the news from Afghanistan has been so negative, critics on the Left have tried to suggest the media are far too negative with President Biden. One article in New York magazine even tried to argue "Why the Media Is Worse for Biden Than Trump."
NewsBusters Podcast: When the Media Polls Look Bad for Biden, Bury 'Em
On the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we discuss the media's temperamental use of polling results. They have a tendency to highlight polls that underline the narratives and candidates they like, but tend to bury poll results they don't like and don't match their talking points. On Sunday, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd found some negatives for Biden in the latest NBC News poll, but those…
NewsBusters Podcast: Liberals Want News That Oozes 'Everything's Fine'
On the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we begin with the question: when the news heavily suggests that everything is fine in America, what's missing from the news? Republicans, first and foremost, or anyone who would strongly question Biden's hold on reality. The press was pretty rough with Biden as Afghanistan quickly collapsed to the vicious Taliban, but people like Brian Stelter complained the…
