Bill Maher: Stormy Daniels Was a 'Bad Witness,' Flip-Flopped to Victim

May 11th, 2024 2:02 PM

On Friday night's Real Time, Bill Maher complained about how the Democrats "blew it at every turn" on creating legal problems for Trump, so now before the election, "it's Stormy or bust." Even there, Maher argued porn star Stormy Daniels is a "bad witness" because she has changed her story in front of this jury. When Maher interviewed her in 2018, she was empowered. Now she's a victim…

February 25th, 2024 10:33 AM

Another NY Times Columnist Nudges Dems to Get Real About Biden Scandal

July 14th, 2023 6:06 PM

Veterans of the New York Times opinion section are stepping out from the leftist media pack and suggesting that Democrats should be a little more honest about the flaws of Joe and Hunter Biden. First, Maureen Dowd harped on Hunter’s four-year-old daughter being dismissed as no Biden. Now, columnist Frank Bruni is lamenting how Democrats can’t tolerate criticism of the Bidens. To avoid…

Column: Shooting the Starting Pistol at Ron DeSantis

December 2nd, 2022 5:46 AM

New York Times opinion writer Frank Bruni wrote a piece describing DeSantis as an “optical illusion,” that “geyser of gibberish” Elon Musk seems fond of him. “Magnates like Musk typically cling to the moment’s shiniest toys, and DeSantis, fresh off his re-election, is a curiously gleaming action figure.” Bruni’s spitting nails at the idea that Musk could find him “sensible and…

Former NYT White House Reporter Begs Media Dems: Go Easy on Biden!

December 11th, 2021 2:30 PM

Is Frank Bruni, former White House correspondent for the New York Times, whispering to media liberals to keep it down with the chatter about sagging polls and infighting that threaten to endanger Biden’s reelection, Democrats in Congress, and democracy itself? Because that seems the subtext of his opinion posted Thursday, “Democrats' Infighting Only Helps Republicans.” Note that when…

NYTimes’ Bruni on Oppressive, Mean-Spirited Texas ‘Seething With Rage'

October 9th, 2021 11:35 AM

The New York Times’ Frank Bruni filed “Texas’ Toxic Heart” for Thursday’s Times, a continuation of his obsession (as well as his paper’s) with that stubbornly red state and the wicked Republicans (like Sen. Ted Cruz, whom he recently apologized to) who run it with an iron fist, apparently: "This is much of Republican politics now -- simultaneously seething with rage and…

Stop the Presses: NY Times Apologizes to…Ted Cruz???

June 22nd, 2021 9:15 AM

Frank Bruni’s last column for the New York Times (he’ll continue writing a newsletter) sported the provocative title, “Ted Cruz, Did I Do You Wrong?” The former White House correspondent (covering George W. Bush) offered an apology to a rather unlikely recipient, while offering his concerns about the state of the anti-Trump press and the left-wing movement, especially "woke culture…

New York Times reporter turned columnist Frank Bruni celebrated Dr. Anthony Fauci, infectious disease expert and ubiquitous presidential coronavirus advisor, in the Sunday Review with “We Owe Fauci Gratitude, Not Grief.” The online headline groveled even lower: “So Anthony Fauci Isn’t Perfect.

NYT Opinion Editor Hosts Limbaugh Forum, Slimes 'Trollish' Ben Shapiro

February 21st, 2021 3:02 PM

Sigh: The New York Times is cranking out still more vituperative reaction on the passing of conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh. A revealing email from opinion editor Kathleen Kingsbury introducing a package of no less than four essays on the man. Kingsbury announced them with self-importance, and anti-Ben Shapiro insults, in an Opinion email, while saluting her left-wing Rush-…

NY Times Still Deeply Confused Over 'Deep State,' Smears Wash Times

December 4th, 2020 5:14 PM

Is the “Deep State” phony, or for real? The New York Times still can’t make up its mind about the concept of an entrenched anti-Trump bureaucracy fighting the Trump administration from within. The Times typically mocks the very idea as a conspiracy theory -- but sometimes it actually praises its existence, in the name of…fighting the Trump administration from within! 

NY Times Columnists Suffer Psychotic Breakdown as Election Day Arrives

November 3rd, 2020 7:00 PM

The pre-election edition of the New York Times Sunday Review was a peculiar 14-page beast featuring all 15 of the paper’s columnists weighing in on Trump under the rubric “What Have We Lost.” In the Times' case, news judgement and emotional maturity would top the list. Former White House correspondent turned whiny liberal columnist Frank Bruni, who is a grown adult male of 56…

NYT Gets Emotional Over Biden’s Bio: 'A Good Man to Defeat a Bad Man'

August 22nd, 2020 9:36 AM

The New York Times got mawkish over Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night.
