April 4th, 2022 4:14 PM
As NewsBusters documented a week ago, comedian Jon Stewart had joined the woke crusade in setting out to label ALL white people racist.

Jon Stewart: 'The Problem With White People,' All Like Klansmen
March 28th, 2022 5:10 PM
The week after releasing a more or less decent critique of the media’s “bulls***” and “jail-gasm” antics with the Mueller report in his The Problem With show, Jon Stewart squandered the goodwill. With the next episode dedicated to “The Problem With White People,” Stewart and radical leftist guests (all of whom were white) engaged in a type of self-flagellation to score virtue points…

December 13th, 2019 9:07 AM
The morning after a huge electoral loss by the left, be it here or abroad, conservatives enjoy tuning into liberal networks to savor the collective weeping, gnashing of teeth, and rending of garments.

After Trump's New Year Tweets, Stelter Predicts Year of ‘Madness'
January 3rd, 2018 12:10 AM
President Trump couldn’t complete his second day of tweeting in 2018 without shots at the liberal media. With a tweet early Tuesday night, he hyped the fake news awards he planned to give out at the start of next week.
