NYT Hits Pot-Smoking, ‘Disqualified’ Johnson on Aleppo, Falls on Face
September 9th, 2016 12:55 PM
The networks finally notices the presidential candidacy of Libertarian Gary Johnson, when it can show him stumbling. The New York Times jumped on to his "Aleppo" flub with two left feet -- only to fall flat on its face as well. Times reporter Alan Rappeport filed the giddily hostile “‘What Is Aleppo?’ Libertarian Presidential Candidate Asks in an Interview Stumble.” The text box was unyielding: “…
Sharpton Frets that Gary Johnson Is ‘Taking Votes from Hillary’
August 14th, 2016 12:18 PM
The Libertarian Party candidate for president, Gary Johnson, joined Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation Sunday to discuss the prospects of a third party’s chances of success in 2016. But Sharpton’s real goal seemed to be to defend Hillary Clinton and discredit Libertarians by asking Johnson, “Do you ever have any slight fear even that you may be taking votes from Hillary Clinton and helping to…
CNN Airs Nearly 200 X's More Coverage On Trump Controversies Than Iran
August 3rd, 2016 1:47 PM
CNN set aside nearly half of its air time on Wednesday's New Day to various recent controversies involving the Trump campaign — 1 hour, 24 minutes, and 18 seconds over three hours. By contrast, the program clearly didn't think much of the Wall Street Journal's Tuesday revelation that the Obama administration secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran. John Berman gave a 27-second news brief…
NY Times Lauds 'Open-Minded' Silicon Valley That Punishes 'Deviations'
July 22nd, 2016 12:13 PM
New York Times reporter Farhad Manjoo and his editors apparently are so insulated in their politically correct bubble that they fail to recognize embarrassing text anyone outside of that bubble with two eyes and and ounce of sense can clearly see.
In a Wednesday piece (Thursday print edition, Page B1) designed to portray Republican National Convention speaker, Donald Trump supporter and PayPal…
John Stossel Returns to TV, Skewers Liberal Pro-Regulation Bias
May 15th, 2016 9:48 PM
John Stossel returned to the air on Fox Business on Friday night after treatment for lung cancer. He told People magazine he doesn't feel like he deserves special attention: "People have been very nice, saying they have been praying for me. I feel a little embarrassed, because I don't feel I had a life-threatening diagnosis. I caught something early, they took it out."
Stossel gave an interview…
National Press Ignores Conservative Win in CA Donor Disclosure Trial
April 22nd, 2016 11:59 PM
Americans For Prosperity won a huge court victory in California Thursday against that state's hard-left vindictive attorney general, Kamala Harris. Naturally, the national press is doing what it does when it doesn't want to cover a story: letting the Politico cover it and then pretending that this suffices.
Harris demanded that AFP provides the section of its not-for-profit Federal Form 990…
'Quantico' Goes After Cruz, Tea Party, Iraq War, and Glass Ceiling
April 18th, 2016 11:51 PM
Last night’s episode of ABC's drama Quantico, titled “Soon,” was like watching a liberal talking point world tour. Once again sought it to re-litigate George W. Bush’s presidential legacy while working in a host of left-wing special issues.
Blogger: Communism’s ‘Impractical,’ But So Is ‘Unregulated Capitalism’
March 16th, 2016 12:03 AM
Many left-wingers still insist that supporters of Donald Trump are conservatives, but Washington Monthly blogger David Atkins finds Trump backers “far less terrifying” than staunch right-wingers. In a Sunday post, Atkins opined that even though Trump’s base voters tend to be mean and “ignorant,” movement conservatives are “more morally objectionable” because they believe in “economic royalism.”…
New York Times vs. New York Times on the Terror Watch List
December 8th, 2015 10:29 AM
On Monday on Twitter, National Review writer Charles C. W. Cooke called out the hypocrisy of the New York Times, as he posted a contrast, a Times flip-flop: a 2014 Editorial Board write-up on how the “Terror Watch Lists Run Amok” and a 2015 Editorial Board write-up on why Republicans are showing “Tough Talk and a Cowardly Vote on Terrorism” by refusing to let the terror watch lists run amok.
CNN's Tapper Spotlights Professor's 'Shocking' Attack on Reporter
November 10th, 2015 6:12 PM
On Tuesday's The Lead, CNN's Jake Tapper zeroed in on University of Missouri Professor Melissa Click's attack on a student journalist, after he tried to cover anti-racism protests on campus. Tapper bluntly stated, "I have to say that I found this video shocking — not just this mob of students trying to intimidate this student journalist — but they had faculty help!" The anchor later asked…
Tim Allen on 'Last Man Standing:' 'I'm Definitely a Libertarian'
October 30th, 2015 10:48 PM
Comedian Tim Allen is one of the few actors who has made no secret of his personal right of center beliefs, but what is even rarer is that he actually gets to voice his views through the character Mike Baxter on the ABC sitcom Last Man Standing.
Time Headline: 'Koch Says U.S. Can Bomb Its Way to $100,000 Salaries'
August 4th, 2015 2:26 PM
I noted on Sunday how former Associated Press reporter Philip Elliott, writing for Time Magazine's Time.com website, joined the Scott Walker pile-on brigade criticizing the Wisconsin Governor's reasonable — arguably to a fault — position that he doesn't personally know whether Barack Obama is a Christian.
A separate post by Elliott, which covered a weekend retreat hosted by Charles Koch,…
Salon Writer: GOP ‘Seeks to Roll Back…the Entire Enlightenment’
July 19th, 2015 5:39 PM
A movie dramatization of the Stanford prison experiment opened this weekend, but if you believe Andrew O’Hehir, that’s not the first time the 1971 psychological study has been restaged in some manner. O’Hehir asserted in a Saturday piece that over the past few decades, “the Republican Party has been the subject, willing or otherwise, of a version” of the Stanford experiment, with the result that…
AP Blames Congress, Not Obama, For OPM Data Breach
July 10th, 2015 6:39 PM
Of all the media memes ever attempted, the one blaming Republicans for the fact that now-resigned Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Aruchleta was confirmed is high on the list of the most ridiculous ever. A reasonably close runnerup is the idea that Congress failed "to adequately fund OPM."
Matt Balan at NewsBusters covered CNN's ridiculous tweeted claim that "Republicans…
