They Think You Are Dumb: Nets Continue Spin of 2020 ‘Moderate’ Dems
March 2nd, 2020 11:53 AM
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday waved goodbye to Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 campaign with one last disingenuous claim that the liberal Democrat is a “moderate.” This weekend, all three networks cheered mysterious “moderate” alternatives to Bernie Sanders. Apparently, all you have to do to be a centrist is simply not take a vacation to the Soviet Union.
OBSESSED: CBS Spent Entire Evening News Program Pushing Impeachment
December 18th, 2019 8:42 PM
For 20 minutes and 25 seconds, the entirety of their Wednesday evening airtime, that’s how much time CBS Evening News dedicated to hawking impeachment to their viewers.

FLASHBACK: Today’s Impeachment Cheerleaders Hated It Back in ’98
December 17th, 2019 9:25 AM
In recent days, journalists have mocked Republicans who’ve switched from impeachment advocates in the 1990s to impeachment foes today. But the news media have undergone a similar metamorphosis. The difference is, Republicans (and Democrats) are understood to be political partisans, while the media are ostensibly supposed to be non-partisan. But the record on impeachment shows that…

September 10th, 2019 8:48 PM
Tuesday was the night North Carolina’s ninth congressional district would finally decide who would represent them in the House.

ABC Admits Ohio Shooter Was a ‘Leftist,’ CBS/NBC Still Covering It Up
August 6th, 2019 9:20 PM
As NewsBusters research analyst Bill D’Agostino exposed Tuesday afternoon, the liberal broadcast networks were doing their best to avoid telling their viewers that the gunman behind the Dayton mass shooting was an admitted ‘leftist’. But ABC’s World News Tonight was the first flagship network news program to break that trend Tuesday evening when they footnoted that fact.
CBS Defends Anti-Semite, Uses Covert Libs to Bash ‘Anti-Immigrant’ GOP
July 19th, 2019 8:26 PM
With the first week of the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell in the books, it has showcased a CNN-like penchant for liberal bias and punditry masquerading as reporting. On Friday, the Trump coverage offered an embrace of anti-Semitic, corrupt, and far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) by attacking the President for “demonizing” her to please his “anti-immigrant base…

Blowout 312K Jobs Report Gets Meager ABC ‘World News’ Attention
January 8th, 2019 9:50 AM
The December jobs report showing 312,000 jobs added was a “boom,” a “surge,” and a huge “surprise.” While all three networks noticed the big economic story on Jan. 4, ABC World News Tonight with David Muir didn’t bother to spend much time telling people about it.
CBS Uses Dem Talking Points to Assert GOP Power Grab in Michigan
December 12th, 2018 11:57 PM
They were a little late to the game but during Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, the network used Democratic Party talking points to stoke fears of a Republican Party power grab in the state of Michigan. And as with their network competitors (ABC and NBC), they too offered little explanation of exactly how the GOP was threatening Democratic power.

November 5th, 2018 10:30 PM
With roughly 24 hours until polls closed for the midterm elections, the liberal broadcast networks were out in force Monday evening as they pleaded with viewers to vote for Democratic candidates.

Dow Down: NBC Freaks Out, CBS Criticizes Trump for Touting Tax Cuts
February 5th, 2018 9:39 PM
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday roughly 1,100 points down after dropping by nearly 1,600. The percentage lost was not record-setting, but that didn’t stop the liberal media from slapping President Trump with it since he often touted the markets as a sign his policies were working. The Big Three networks led their evening newscasts with the story. NBC’s stood out as the…

CBS Bemoans Lowering on Min Wage in St. Louis, Ignores Seattle Study
July 6th, 2017 1:12 AM
In late June, economists at the University of Washington published a study that showed just how harmful the $15/hour minimum wage hike was for the city of Seattle. And despite that evidence, CBS ran a story Wednesday evening bemoaning how the city of St. Louis was planning to reverse their $10/hour minimum wage hike back down to $7.70/hour. “Well, cities all over America have been boosting…
