It's About Time: Bring on the Tanks!
WASHINGTON — I have been following the pledging of combat tanks to Ukraine by the European allies. It is impressive. I do not think it is an exaggeration to claim that Vladimir Putin's war of aggression in Ukraine has roused all Europe's wrath. Even little Portugal has gotten into the act. I think it is long past time for Putin to come to the negotiation table. Are his poorly trained and…
Adieu to 2022: Here’s the Ten Most-Read NewsBusters Blogs of the Year
With only a few hardened leftists stuck on COVID-19, 2022 represented a year in which more Americans moved on and, thankfully for the team at NewsBusters, the liberal media continued to provide us plenty of content. For our top ten most-read blogs of the year, the topics included Biden’s mental state, the free state of Florida, Hollywood elitism, and Ukraine. For this year, the News Analysis…
Fireworks by the Dozen: Here Are the Top WH Briefing Moments of 2022
Inside the White House Briefing Room, 2022 began with more mountain-sized word salads and dodges from Jen Psaki before shifting in May to former MoveOn.org spokeswoman and former MSNBC contributor Karine Jean-Pierre, who made waves for her stunning ineptitude and using her binder as a life raft.
NBC 'Historian' Outraged When GOP Didn't Show Up or Clap for Zelensky
MSNBC used to be the network that demanded that people be allowed to dissent from a government line, certainly when the president was Trump or George W. Bush. But when Ukraine's president Wlodomyr Zelensky came to speak to Congress, anyone who didn't treat him as the second coming of Winston Churchill was a foul individual. On Wednesday night's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell,…
NYT Columnist’s Bizarre Journey: Iraq Peacenik to Ukraine Warmonger
Nicholas Kristof has straggled back to his columnist job at the New York Times, after his failed attempt to run for governor from his home state of Oregon due to residency requirements. A strong critic of the Iraq War, led by Republican President George W. Bush, Kristof has evolved into something of a war-monger, at least when it comes to international interventions by Democratic…
Hillary, PBS: Pro-Lifers Akin to Iran, Taliban, Russian War Criminals
Hillary Clinton joined PBS’s Amanpour and Company on Thursday to preview the Clinton Presidential Center’s upcoming summit on the status of women’s rights around the world. For the former Secretary of State, the state of women’s rights in Iran, in Afghanistan under the Taliban, and in Ukraine where Russian soldiers use rape as a weapon is analogous to Arkansas, where pro-lifers run…
Lemon Urges Clinton To Speak To The Threat To Democracy In America
Former Secretary of State swung by Thursday’s CNN This Morning for a wide-ranging, but still softball interview that included co-host Don Lemon asking her to “Speak to us about” the threat to democracy around the world, including in America.
‘Your Face...Lit Up’; Stephanopoulos Treats Blinken to Softball Chat
One could say ABC was winking for Blinken on Thursday as Good Morning America co-host and former Clinton official George Stephanopoulos aired a friendly interview with Secretary of State Antony Blinken that Stephanopoulos boasted in a tease was a way for Blinken to give Americans “[t]he latest on the challenges pressing our country right now.” At one point, Stephanopoulos even gushed…
Ruhle Mangles McCarthy's Words To Suggest He's Seeking Putin's Help
As the midterms approach, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is giving clues into how Republicans would govern should they win. On Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, host Stephanie Ruhle falsely and absurdly suggested he is seeking Vladimir Putin’s help in the closing days of the campaign.
Why Is Putin’s Army Inept?
WASHINGTON -- Whatever happened to the Russian Army? For that matter, whatever happened to the Russian Air Force or the Russian Navy whose flagship is now at the bottom of the Black Sea? The answer is nothing. Nothing has happened to the Russian military for 50 years, and President Vladimir Putin should have thought twice before heaving his armed forces into war.
MSNBC Suggests High Gas Prices Are A Saudi Plot To Help GOP In Midterm
MSNBC has an explanation for why gas prices are on the rise again and it’s not President Biden’s terrible foreign and energy policy. Ali Velshi guest hosted The Last Word on Thursday and together with journalism and political science professor Peter Beinart, he blamed Saudi Arabia’s decision to cut production as part of a pro-GOP, anti-Democratic Party conspiracy.
Should the West Seek an Off-Ramp in Ukraine?
How does the war in Ukraine end? This is precisely the question no one is supposed to ask these days. The supposition by our thought leaders seems to be that if we keep up the pressure on Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, he'll fold and go home; his threats to use tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield are nothing more than saber-rattling. He will then retrench on the domestic front, resolidify…
Tech Giants Allow China, Russia to Have 902M Followers — Banned Trump
American Big Tech platforms Facebook, Twitter and Google-owned YouTube allow the authoritarian regimes of China and Russia to spread their anti-American propaganda and lies online to nearly a billion followers.

MSNBC Admiral: Putin's Conscripts Are Like NYC Bartenders
On Morning Joe, retired Admiral James Stavridis, commenting on Putin's chaotic call-up of 300,000 conscripts, came up with a truly strange metaphor, saying: "This is like pulling a bunch of bartenders off of Fifth Avenue, and sending them out to the front lines. It's not going to work."
