September 28th, 2022 10:14 PM
This week, PolitiFact is hosting "United Facts of America," a so-called "festival of fact-checking. But the conference, like their website, betrays that they identify strongly with the liberal media, hosting journalists from NPR, PBS, and CNN. Our new study shows they're six times more likely to "fact check" people or websites criticizing Biden than "fact checking" the president.

Behold! A 12 Pack of NewsBusters Blogs from Media's War on Kavanaugh
October 8th, 2018 4:20 PM
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally…
Four Scorching Kavanaugh Hot Takes from Tuesday’s ‘Hardball’
September 25th, 2018 11:17 PM
Tuesday’s Hardball saw host Chris Matthews and a few of his guests come locked and loaded for battle, illustrating the left’s rabid desire to convict Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh in the court of public opinion and perhaps a future court of law based on, at best, wobbly evidence.

September 14th, 2018 5:10 PM
Published on Wednesday, the latest edition of National Review Online’s The Jamie Weinstein Show podcast featured a lively, hour-plus conversation with CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter.

‘Hardball’: WH Gossip Books Are Like the Gospels, Trump Lacks Empathy
September 12th, 2018 5:28 PM
MSNBC’s Hardball was in rare form on Tuesday, featuring host Chris Matthews and his various guests perpetually stepping in it.

Thursdays with Chris: Three Dumb Takeaways from ‘Hardball’
September 7th, 2018 11:44 AM
Often times when watching MSNBC’s Hardball, it’s one moment that stands out in the sea of liberal bias and tomfoolery from longtime host Chris Matthews. But in other instances, it’s a potpourri of lunacy with Matthews and guests trying to one-up each other as walking Notable Quotables. Thursday’s show was a combination of the two with Matthews doing some heavy lifting with some help from New York…

Check Out Six Unhinged Moments from Aspen's Liberal Media Lovefest
July 5th, 2018 9:27 PM
The Aspen Ideas Festival has a reputation of being an elitist conclave of liberal academics, journalists, and pundits (with rare exceptions) to pat themselves on the back and how they could work together to advance their left-of-center worldviews. So it was no surprise when the late June gathering held a June 27 panel called “How We Survive Attacks on Journalism” and featured a who’s who from the…
Journalists and Celebrities Exploit Santa Fe Shooting to Grab Guns
May 22nd, 2018 3:43 PM
Soon after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, journalists and celebrities attacked those who they believe were the true culprits in the tragedy: Law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters.

Fake News to Smearing the Defector: Four Awful Moments from ‘Hardball’
February 1st, 2018 3:28 PM
With Tuesday’s State of the Union well-received by the public (and not the liberal media), it was time to move on and back to spreading fake news, attacking Christians, and hurling around tired insults. Luckily for the Resistance, Wednesday’s Hardball accomplished just that thanks to four cringe-worthy moments featuring host Chris Matthews and a team of liberal guests and journalists.
Here's Six Nutty Things from MSNBC's Late-Night SOTU Coverage
January 31st, 2018 6:16 PM
Late Tuesday, the President’s State of the Union address and Democratic response ended just shy of 11:00 p.m. Eastern, but MSNBC kept it going live until 2:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday. While it’s doubtful you stayed up to watch, you missed some mind-numbingly stupid quotes.
