NewsBusters Podcast: Biden's First Year of Media Excuses and Omissions
Even as Joe Biden's approval ratings have collapsed, you can't blame the liberal media for his unpopularity. MRC Research Director Scott Whitlock joins the show to share the results of his study of evening newscasts, looking at just how aggressively the networks downplayed or skipped stories that would put bad news on Biden's plate.
CNN 'Fact Checker' Daniel Dale Is Obviously Soft on Biden
Column: No Fact-Checking for Biden's Atlanta Smears
One of the most frustrating things about “fact checkers” is how they leap on conservative rhetoric against Democrats as “false” or “missing context,” but let Democrats say the wildest, nastiest things about conservatives, and they get a pass. For example, PolitiFact pounced on Sen. David Perdue of Georgia as a “Pants On Fire” liar for calling his opponent Jon Ossoff a “socialist.” But…
CNN Fact-Checker Dings 'Right-Wing' for Misinformation Sparked By ABC
On Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom, purported CNN “fact-checker” Daniel Dale was a little irked by some naughty “right-wing commentators” and “people on the right” for spreading misinformation around the internet about COVID-19 deaths and comorbidities. But the kicker is that the misinformation originally started with a piece of video poorly edited and aired by ABC News during last Friday’s…
Reid, Steele Spew More Youngkin Lies, Defend Porn in Schools
Just when you thought the liberal media couldn’t go any lower, they find a way to careen over the edge. That was the case Thursday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut as host Joy Reid and former RNC chairman Michael Steele decried calls to remove sexually graphic material from schools, seemingly siding with pornography under the guise of a stereotype that teens watch pornography on their cell…
Where's CNN 'Fact Checker' Daniel Dale? Why's He Missing Under Biden?
Andrew Stiles at the Washington Free Beacon noticed that CNN "fact checker" Daniel Dale hasn't tweeted anything since September 17, when he tweeted "I'm gone for a while goodbye everybody." Stiles joked this was a metaphor for his work post-Trump:
'Fact Checkers' Take the Week Off on 'Whips' Used by the Border Patrol
Joe Wulfsohn at Fox News reported the "fact check" squads of the liberal media did not correct the Democrat/media claims that there were whips used by the Border Patrol against illegal Haitian immigrants at the southern borders. "None of the fact-checkers at The Washington Post, CNN, NBC News, The Associated Press, USA Today and Snopes addressed the 'whipping' claims, according to their…
WashPost, CNN 'Fact Checkers' RAGE at GOP for Noting WH Cut Video Feed
Sister Toldjah at RedState reported that those “independent fact checkers” at CNN and The Washington Post rushed to Biden’s defense again on Tuesday. They were upset that Republicans pounced on Team Biden for cutting off the president’s White House video feed in mid-question on Monday in Idaho. Neither guardian of facts noticed Biden unloaded a whopper about "my first job offer"…
Column: Rolling Stone Commits 'Horse Dewormer' Fraud
The liberal reporters on the “misinformation” beat and those “independent fact-checkers” are very aggressive about squashing information about COVID-19 that is either flat-out untrue or opposed to the (sometimes fluctuating) findings of government agencies. Sadly, these so-called guardians of truth aren’t as aggressive about narratives that mock anti-vaccine activists and COVID skeptics.
NewsBusters Podcast: 'Facts First' Media Trip on Fake Ivermectin News
Sometimes terribly fake news emerges from the left. Over the long holiday weekend, too many "mainstream" media voices fell for another hoax from Rolling Stone magazine, that somehow "horse dewormer overdoses" were "overwhelming Oklahoma hospitals." Even the photo in the Rolling Stone tweet was fake. How discerning are supposedly smart lefties like Rachel Maddow or Joy Reid?…
Of Course: Reid Joined Liberal Mob in Peddling FAKE Ivermectin Story
Over the Labor Day weekend, the liberal media uncorked another piece of truly fake news thanks to a Rolling Stone story that claimed an Oklahoma hospital had been overrun with people having overdosed on the medication ivermectin. Among the frauds was none other than MSNBC’s The ReidOut host Joy Reid, who spent just over six minutes on Friday using the tall tale as a…
CNN Slams Biden on 'False' Claim He Visited Synagogue After Killings
Jen Psaki's job of cleaning up after Joe Biden just got even tougher. She now has to try to explain away Biden's claim to have visited the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the 2018 anti-Semitic massacre there that killed 11 people. There's just one problem with the claim: the synagogue says Biden never visited. CNN called Biden out on it this morning. Reporter Daniel Dale, CNN's…
Column: Republicans Did Not Defund the Police
Here’s an easy test to see whether fact-checking websites can make any claim to be “independent” and nonpartisan in tone. Biden staffers claimed Republicans “defunded the police.” That’s a bald-faced lie.
NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Sister Toldjah on Fractured Fact Checks, CNN
In the latest NewsBusters Podcast, Sister Toldjah of RedState talks about how the "fact checkers" have grown suddenly lazy under Joe Biden, and how angry CNN media writer Oliver Darcy blocked her on Twitter over Tucker Carlson.
