Capitol Hill Riot
MSNBC's Wallace Crew Praises Cheneys and Rove for Their 1/6 Stance
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, per the ancient adage. And thus, for their condemnations of Donald Trump and the January 6th riot, Liz and Dick Cheney and Karl Rove have become the friends of the left. But for denizens of the liberal media, any praise of that trio— and in particular Dick Cheney and Rove—risks alienating their liberal base, which loathes them. And so it was that on…
NBC's Lester Holt Plays Therapist With Speaker Pelosi In 1/6 Interview

CBS PANICS Over Michigan Enacting Voter ID Laws, Ending Vote By Mail

The Second Half: CBS/NBC Give Jan. 6 Over 80% Evening News Airtime
As NewsBusters documented Thursday morning, the anniversary of January 6 was their Super Bowl as the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent nearly 90-combined-minutes obsessing over the riot at the Capitol like their political careers depended on it. That infatuation cared over through half-time (to stick with the football nomenclature) to their evening newscasts where CBS and NBC each…
WashPost Touts Development of Algorithm to ‘Prevent Another Jan. 6’
Hysteria proclaiming Jan. 6, 2021, as a MAGA-fueled “insurrection” against “democracy” is strong as ever one year later. Government agencies, a university and nonprofits are all coming together to develop supposed “political violence”-predicting algorithms in response. That plan could prove seriously damaging to free speech online.
INSANE: ABC Historian Compares Biden Speech to the Gettysburg Address
Continuing Thursday’s theme of news organizations allowing all nutty comparisons to fly on the anniversary of the January 6 riot, ABC News presidential historian Mark Updegrove proclaimed after President Biden’s “powerful” speech that it belonged alongside those from “FDR after Pearl Harbor,” “Lyndon Johnson after Selma,” “George W. Bush after 9/11,” and, most egregiously, Abraham Lincoln’s…
Chuck Todd: ‘Lincoln’s Election Was More Accepted’ Than Biden’s
The cavalcade of leftist media idiocy regarding the one year anniversary of the January 6th Capitol Hill riot reached a new low on MSNBC Thursday afternoon as anchors Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell ridiculously wailed that current divisions in the country were worse than during the Civil War. Todd went so far as to utter the historically illiterate nonsense that “Lincoln’s election was more…
NYTimes Makes Hay of Jan. 6 Anniversary, Shuns Comparison to BLM Riots
The New York Times is making hay during the intense Democratic politicization of the one-year anniversary of the violent Capitol Hill riots of January 6, 2021, which an online headline called “the worst American attack in democracy in centuries.” Times fact-checker Linda Qiu assured readers the Black Lives Matter riots weren’t nearly so violent as the Capitol Hill assault,…
MSNBC 'Historian' Equates Jan. 6 to the 'Holocaust' and Video of Camps
One of the major rules of politics is don’t compare anything to the Holocaust because you look like a fool. And that’s exactly what MSNBC’s far-left “historian” Douglas Brinkley did during Thursday’s January 6 festivities on Craig Melvin Reports. And not only did he compare the riot at the Capitol to the systematic killing of 6 million Jews, but he also declared America in a “neo-…
Todd: Biden Screed Not Partisan, ‘Pro-Democracy’ & ‘Pro-America’
During NBC News special coverage of President Biden’s divisive speech using the anniversary of the January 6 Capitol Hill riot to attack Republicans, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd absurdly claimed the screed was not partisan “if you’re pro-democracy and pro-America.” He also predictably hailed the address as Biden at his “best.”
It’s Their Super Bowl: Networks Go ALL OUT With 90 Mins on January 6
On Thursday, it was the liberal media’s Super Bowl and on the first anniversary of the January 6, 2021 attack and riot at the U.S. Capitol as, according to a NewsBusters analysis of the major broadcast network morning newscasts, ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Mornings, and NBC’s Today spent roughly 90 minutes dissecting, obsessing over, and painting the 75 million-…
Top 4 Moments of CBS Lamenting Media Mistrust, Blaming the Voters
On the one year anniversary of the violent January 6, 2021 attack on Congress, CBS Mornings hosts spewed Democratic talking points as they attempted to pretend that only one party has election deniers.

VIDEO: Media Cynics Are Helping Dems Use Jan 6 to Federalize Elections
After obsessing over the January 6 Capitol riot for the past year, the media are now using its one-year anniversary to advocate for unprecedented, sweeping election reforms. Democrats would have been foolish not to make political hay out of the January 6 anniversary, and so they've decided to wield it as a justification for federalizing America's elections. Naturally, their friends in the…
CNN Reporter Touts 'Benefits' of 1/6 Committee Exposing Fox News
At 2 pm on Wednesday, CNN's "Citizen" project live-streamed a panel discussion with four of its journalists on the top "Lessons of the Insurrection: Where Are We Now?" Dana Bash read a question from a viewer about how to protect democracy, and reporter Alex Marquardt touted that "one of the many benefits" of the 1/6 committee was how they exposed Fox News as Trump collaborators.
