Whoopi Pushes for Splitting the Republican Party, Which Helps Dems
With the midterms fast approaching, the Monday edition of ABC’s The View looked to seize on apparent bickering within the Republican Party to try and drive a wedge, with co-host Whoopi Goldberg pushing for the party to split, forming a third party, and cementing Democratic Party supremacy. Surprisingly, there was some pushback from unlikely members of the panel but one of the so-…
FLASHBACK: Unlike Today’s Late Night Hacks, Carson Zinged Biden
It was 35 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 2022 don’t seem interested in mocking now-President Biden, it’s worth remembering that Johnny Carson had no problem joking about the Democrat in 1987.
Ron Johnson Up 13 Among Independents, But AP Warns He's Losing There
Beware the liberal media trying to warn you of how Republicans are in trouble, and the Democrats are gaining momentum. An Associated Press story lined up five independent voters who said they wouldn't vote for Sen. Ron Johnson, but the latest Marquette poll has Sen. Johnson up two points among independents, and a later poll has him leading among independents by 13.

NYT WHINES Social Media Needs EVEN MORE Election Censorship
Big Tech’s recent attempts to ramp up pre-election censorship are not restrictive enough for the leftist New York Times.
The View's 2024 Ticket? Gov. Newsom and Pretend-Gov. Abrams
Aside from so-called “Sunny Hostin” making racist attacks against former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley targeting her name and skin tone, The View also floated names of Democrats to be their nominee in 2024 on Tuesday. One potential ticket paring that got some vocal support from the cast was California Governor Gavin Newsom and Georgia’s pretend-Governor Stacey Abrams. And the former in…
Snap Snafu Lets Dem & GOP Orgs Tailor Ads to Wrong Audience
Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, claimed to have accidentally allowed Republican and Democrat firms to dip into each other’s target audiences for political ads.
PolitiFact Helper: Tim Ryan 'Mostly True,' J.D. Vance 'Mostly False'
On Saturday, PolitiFact's Twitter account hinted at how they're tilting their "fact-checking" in the Ohio Senate race. Tim Ryan is overwhelmingly True, and J.D. Vance is typically False.
Sunny FLIPS OUT Over Construction Workers Chanting 'Trump 2024!'
In another example of how mentally unstable she is on Friday, The View co-host Sunny Hostin flipped out because construction workers didn’t catcall, but rather chanted “Trump 2024! Trump 2024!” at her and fellow co-host Ana Navarro. She also used that as evidence to suggest upwards of 80 percent of Republicans would take up arms and overthrow the government if former President Trump…
NYT Paints DeSantis As Right-Wing Strongman, ‘Crush[ing] Adversaries'
Another day, another Ron DeSantis hit piece in a major newspaper. “Is Ron DeSantis the Future of the Republican Party?” by New York Times reporter Matt Flegenheimer is set to appear in the September 18 Sunday Magazine, posing the question: Will Florida’s governor throw his hat in the ring for president, even if Donald Trump runs as well? After some preamble, Flegenheimer sets…
The View Loves How Stacey Abrams 'Didn't Traditionally Concede'
If anyone with critical thinking skills was watched The View over the last few days, they would – like this writer – be suffering from massive whiplash as they bounced back and forth between praising election denialism to decrying it to praising it again (depending on the party affiliation of the one speaking). Celebration was on the rebound Wednesday as the cackling coven…
Column: Media Bias by Omission, Clear as Krystle
The most insidious form of media bias is bias by omission, because you can’t always know what the media refuse to tell you. The national media elites go looking for horrible Republican candidate misfires, and then try to spread them across the entire Republican Party. By contrast, they ignore damaging statements by Democrats, so it can’t harm the wider party. Take the case of Krystle Matthews…
NBC’s Marathon Interview with Jill Biden Was as Dumb as You’d Expect
Spread out across two hours and clocking in at ten minutes and 21 seconds of coverage (excluding teases), NBC’s Today and 3rd Hour of Today kissed up to First Lady Jill Biden thanks to co-host Sheinelle Jones as they hugged and discussed the late Queen Elizabeth II, Biden’s partnership with Pintrest to reward teachers, the upcoming White House wedding for Naomi Biden (…
