On Monday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams continued to blame Republicans for the government shutdown, asserting that the budget impasse "traces its history back to a determined core of GOP House members who are vehemently against ObamaCare and were willing to shut down the government because of it."

MSNBC's Wolffe: Obama Campaign Didn't Have 'Balls' To Tell Stephanie C

September 16th, 2013 8:42 AM
"You tell her.  No, YOU tell her!" . . . Richard Wolffe says that in 2012 an all-male group of senior Obama campaign people got together at a White Sox game and decided to fire deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter—but didn't have the "balls" to tell her. Maybe so.  Then again, Wolffe—appearing on Morning Joe today to tout his new book on the Obama re-election campaign—also claimed that…

Chris Matthews: Laura Ingraham Wrong About Voter ID Laws Being Nondisc

August 27th, 2013 9:18 PM
One of the media’s recent race-baiting memes is to claim that voter ID laws are being proposed by Republicans to suppress minority votes. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is in lockstep with this falsehood, and claimed without producing any evidence on Tuesday’s Hardball that conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham was wrong when she recently said such laws were nondiscriminatory (video follows with…

A Week Later, National Press Still Virtually Ignoring 'Well-Intentione

June 9th, 2013 12:01 PM
A week ago (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I wrote up a post on the Miami Herald's coverage of how the chief of staff of Florida Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia had admittted to attempting to orchestrate "a sophisticated scheme to manipulate last year’s primary elections by submitting hundreds of fraudulent absentee-ballot requests." I also noted that the story, which broke on Friday, May…

Media Didn't Worry About Dems Overplaying 'GOP War on Women' or 'GOP C

June 4th, 2013 10:16 AM
You can't swing a dead cat these days without hitting some liberal media member cautioning the Republicans to not "overplay their hand" concerning the various scandals now plaguing the White House. Do you remember the press being concerned that the Democrats would overplay 2006's "Republican Culture of Corruption" or last year's "Republican War on Women?"

Not Yet National News: Fla. Dem Congressman's Chief of Staff Resigns A

June 2nd, 2013 2:54 PM
This has to be an imaginary story, right? Most Democrats and others on the left continue to insist that voter fraud is not a problem, even in the face of examples like Minnesota U.S. Senator Al Franken, whose 312-vote "victory" margin in 2008 may have entirely consisted (and then some) of illegal votes by felons in just one county. More recently, it seems that the claim is under revision. A…

Politico's Jonathan Martin: 'Progress for Other African-American Polit

April 29th, 2013 8:42 PM
They must be paying by the word over at Politico. It's difficult to come up with another explanation as to why reporter Jonathan Martin would slog through about 3,100 words on an item entitled "Black pols stymied in Obama era." He could have easily summarized why this is the case in eight words: "Because Barack Obama is all about Barack Obama." Oh, he could have added a few more, namely "and…
