January 19th, 2022 10:36 PM

Even as Joe Biden's approval ratings have collapsed, you can't blame the liberal media for his unpopularity. MRC Research Director Scott Whitlock joins the show to share the results of his study of evening newscasts, looking at just how aggressively the networks downplayed or skipped stories that would put bad news on Biden's plate.

NewsBusters Podcast: Exploiting MLK to Paint GOP As ‘Jim Crow’ Racists

January 17th, 2022 10:04 PM

Martin Luther King birthday celebrations could be unifying, but that’s not how media liberals use it. It’s just another occasion to trash Republicans as “Jim Crow” racists trying to keep blacks from voting and laboring to stop school kids from learning anything about MLK. What a sorry set of smears.

NewsBusters Podcast: Joe and Kamala's Terrible Week on TV

January 14th, 2022 11:06 PM

Between Joe Biden's ranting Atlanta speech and Kamala Harris's bumbling interview with Craig Melvin on NBC, the White House had a terrible week...even though the liberal TV networks energetically promoted their failing arguments.

NewsBusters Podcast: Networks Promote Biden as Democracy's Batman

January 12th, 2022 5:51 PM

On Tuesday, President Biden gave a “fiery” speech in Atlanta attacking anyone who disagreed with him on current Democrat “voting rights” bills as akin to southern segregationists of the 1960s, like George Wallace and Bull Connor. He compared his side to Abraham Lincoln, and his opponents to Jefferson Davis. The networks lined up to promote his “appeal to the lessons of history.”

NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Suddenly CNN Hates COVID 'Panic Porn'

January 10th, 2022 7:07 PM

On the latest NB Podcast, we marvel at the amazing pundit acrobatics of the CNN Media Unit. In 2020, CNN was the center of the universe on coronavirus panic (unless you were attending a Black Lives Matter protest). Suddenly in 2022, there's too many "doomsday doctors" and "panic porn" out there -- now that Biden's approval rating is in the dumps and the Democrats are vulnerable in a midterm…

NewsBusters Podcast: You Can't Turn 1/6 Into 9/11, But They'll Try

January 7th, 2022 10:31 PM

As the liberal media devoted many hours to commemorating the 1/6 riot, it was considered horrible to "minimize" it, but it's apparently never objectionable to exaggerate it beyond belief -- an event where five died doesn't match the terrorist murder of 3,000 on 9/11.

NewsBusters Podcast: Journos Claim They Only Make ‘Innocent’ Mistakes

Filling in for boss Tim Graham, NewsBusters deputy managing editor Nick “Night Train” Fondacaro and I were back in our saddles for Monday’s post-Christmas edition of the NewsBusters Podcast and, while it’s often a slower time of the year in the news business, we still had plenty to talk about.

NewsBusters Podcast: ESPN Lionizes Bubba Wallace Over Fake Noose Tale

December 20th, 2021 5:49 PM

On Monday’s NewsBusters Podcast, deputy managing editor Nicholas Fondacaro and I took a look at just some of the bad headlines that enveloped the Biden administration surrounding its doomed Build Back Better agenda, but before that, we went through a new documentary by liberal sports network ESPN that fawned over NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace.

NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Harvard Hates Objective Journalism

December 18th, 2021 7:00 AM

Harvard's Nieman Lab looked ahead to the "news" business in 2022 and promoted an end to objectivity as a journalism ideal. "Solidarity for social justice" is the new fad, but solidarity with whom? The "marginalized" get a major boost, and if you're not "marginalized," you're going to get lectured about your advantages. They think the media's job is to create "transformational change" for the…

NewsBusters Podcast: 'Historic' Moves in 1/6 Probe Dominate TV News

December 15th, 2021 9:03 PM

On the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we discuss how the networks obsess over every finding of the hyper-partisan January 6 Committee in the House, and how they tout their "historic rebukes" of Trump by "holding accountable" his former staffers (like chief of staff Mark Meadows) with "criminal charges" of contempt of Congress. But when a Republican-majority House held Obama's Attorney…

December 13th, 2021 10:15 PM

Chris Wallace announced he was leaving Fox News, and then he joined CNN’s new streaming service. He even said he was “delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team.” Oh, the network of Chris Cuomo? And Jeffrey Toobin? And Don Lemon?

December 10th, 2021 8:19 PM

Thursday marked a harmonic convergence as we wave farewell to the careers of Brian Williams and Jussie Smollett, two fabulists who counted on the Left to promote their misinformation.

NewsBusters Podcast: Rittenhouse-Obsessed Nets Are Bored by Smollett

December 8th, 2021 8:19 PM

On the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we discuss how the broadcast networks have been reluctant and slow in covering the Jussie Smollett trial. ABC's been almost non-existent after energetically boosting Smollett's hate-crime hoax two years ago.
