UNFAIR! MSNBC Heckled GOP Convention With 200 Minutes of Interruptions

August 31st, 2020 8:15 AM

While cable news let the Democratic convention run without any significant interruption, CNN and MSNBC refused to give the same consideration to Republicans, stepping over the party-produced content to deplore and criticize what viewers were trying to watch.

Column: Jake Tapper's Revolting Post-Game Analysis

August 28th, 2020 6:37 AM

There may be no more blatant violation of the concept of truth in advertising than CNN boastfully claiming the slogan “Facts First.” If facts were water and opinions were whiskey, CNN would concoct a very potent cocktail. Jake Tapper's opinions after the Mike Pence and Kamala Harris convention speeches were very opinionated, indeed.

August 28th, 2020 5:07 AM

NBC News did its best last Thursday to empty their thesaurus of positive traits to describe Joe Biden’s 2020 DNC speech, but when it came to President Trump Thursday night at the RNC, they were not only dispassionate about it, but the same individuals that raved over Biden’s speech seemed bored.

During its coverage of the Republican National Convention, CNN's flagship morning show, New Day, has been displaying the substantial move further left that the liberal news network over the last few years.

CNN Disrupts RNC to Defend Rioters, ‘We Should Beat This Kid Up’

August 27th, 2020 12:22 AM

CNN interrupted Wednesday’s Republican National Committee proceedings four times (compared to the ZERO times they interrupted night three of the DNC), and they did it in the most disgusting of ways. Between consistently shoddy co-host Jake Tapper defending violent riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and left-wing activist Van Jones calling for a 17-year-old to be beaten up, the network was unhinged.…

Column: The Convention Tone Police

August 26th, 2020 6:52 AM
