FLASHBACK: Nets Buried Obama, Clinton Link to MONSTER Weinstein
Four years ago this week, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were reeling from their connection to the monstrous Harvey Weinstein, the now-disgraced Hollywood mogul who has been convicted of sexual assault. But you wouldn’t know just how deeply entwined the Clintons and Obamas were to the sex offender because the press was suppressing it.
WATCH: Thomas Takes on the Left’s ‘High Tech Lynching’ 30 Years Ago
It was 30 years ago today that Clarence Thomas demolished the left — and the liberal media’s — attempt to destroy him, condemning smears as a “high tech lynching.” On October 11, 1991, the then-Supreme Court nominee finally got to speak for himself and respond to the charges that he sexually harassed Anita Hill. It was a moment of high drama when the conservative icon called out his…
FLASHBACK: Walters Cheers Cuba as ‘One of the Freest Nations on Earth’
One of the more distasteful habits of liberal journalists has always been the tendency to flatter and fawn over brutal dictators. Reporters, who are supposed to speak truth to power, often fail when it comes to charismatic communists. That’s exactly what happened when ABC's Barbara Walters interviewed Fidel Castro almost 19 years ago.
FLASHBACK: Unlike Today’s Late Night Hacks, Carson Zinged Biden
It was 34 years ago this September that Joe Biden’s first of three presidential campaigns was embroiled in a plagiarism scandal, one that would torpedo the bid in controversy. While journalists and late night hosts in 2021 don’t seem interested in mocking Biden, it’s worth remembering that Johnny Carson had no problem zinging the Democrat in 1987.
New ‘View’ Conservative Must Prepare for SICK Defenses of Liberal Men
The notoriously liberal View is currently holding tryouts to replace token conservative Meghan McCain who departed the show this summer after numerous clashes with liberals like Joy Behar. Whoever this new woman is, she should prepare herself for the disgusting levels that the View co-hosts will go to defend (liberal) men accused of sexual crimes. It was 19 years ago…
Reminder: ABC Employed Radical 9/11 Truther Nut O’Donnell for Years
On the 20th anniversary of September 11th, 2001, it’s perhaps a good reminder that ABC hired, parted company with, and then rehired Rosie O’Donnell as a co-host of The View. The radical O’Donnell spewed 9/11 conspiracy theories and also trashed “radical Christianity” as more dangerous than radical Islam. ABC liked what they saw so much that they hired her twice, the first stint…
Recalling the Last Recall and the Lib Media’s Last Minute Dirty Tricks
Right now, the leader of the pack to replace California Governor Gavin Newsom is conservative talk show host Larry Elder, so he’s currently the main target of the liberal media’s venom. On the eve of the 2003 recall vote, the media aimed their last-minute artillery at Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger, then leading in the race to replace Governor Gray Davis.
We Dug Up Decades-Old Video CNN Wants You to Forget: Clinton Is Elvis
CNN gushing over a Democratic president didn’t start with Joe Biden or even Barack Obama. You have to go back all the way to Bill Clinton to see the birth of the cable channel’s love affair with liberal presidents. It was 20 years ago this week that CNN produced a syrupy, vomit-inducing valentine to Bill Clinton comparing him to, yes, Elvis Presley. Then-senior political analyst Bill Schneider…
Chris Cuomo UNDERMINED His Brother’s Accusers, But Trashed Kavanaugh
Andrew Cuomo resigned this week under the crushing weight of almost a dozen women accusing him of sexual abuse and harassment. Yet the Democratic governor's brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, has NOT resigned from his network hosting job. Chris is merely on “vacation.” But although the CNN host destroyed all sorts of journalistic and moral norms by advising his brother on how to dismiss and…
WW II Vet Indignant When Williams Asked About A-Bomb 'Remorse'
It’s important to remember that, though Brian Williams was forced to resign in disgrace for telling multiple lies, the ex-NBC Nightly News anchor made plenty of obnoxious, stupid comments before he lost his job. It was 16 years ago this week, on August 5, 2005, that Williams prodded an Enola Gay pilot about his “remorse” for dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
FLASHBACK: Before Obama Gave Matthews a ‘Thrill,’ He Caused a ‘Chill'
Years before Barack Obama gave Chris Matthews a “thrill” UP his leg, the Democrat prompted a “chill” IN his leg. In fact, it was 17 years ago this week that the former MSNBC host swooned over the Democrat the media would fall in love with. During John Kerry’s Democratic National Convention, Matthews used eerily similar language to his more famous outburst: “I have to tell ya a little chill in…
CRINGE: Journalist Offered Oral Sex to Clinton to Keep Abortion Legal
In the #MeToo era that we live in, there are certain journalists who have a lot of explaining and reflecting to do: Bill Clinton-era reporters who have made cringe-worthy comments. It was 23 years ago this week that Time contributor Nina Burleigh wrote she would “be happy to give [Clinton] a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal.”
FLASHBACK: 20 Years Since Sawyer’s ‘Pizza and Milkshake’ Clinton Dream
Journalists who trashed Donald Trump have shown their corruption by showing no interest in speaking truth to Joe Biden. But that shouldn’t be a shock to anyone who has watched the press cover past Democratic presidents. It was 20 years ago today that Diane Sawyer, a Good Morning America host and World News anchor, blurted out that she’s dreamed of Bill Clinton.
MSNBC Fourth of July Flashback: Don’t Forget the Genocide!
The journalists at MSNBC sure know how to celebrate America’s Independence Day, don’t they? It was nine years ago on Thursday that then-MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry decided to trash the U.S. going into the Fourth of July holiday, reminding everyone of the country's “imperialism, the genocide, the slavery.”
