February 11th, 2016 9:56 PM
After having started off with a number of surprisingly solid questions in Thursday’s PBS NewsHour Democratic Debate, co-moderator Gwen Ifill wondered to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders if he’s concerned that he “will be the instrument of thwarting history” if he defeats Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary as part of her second campaign to be the first female president.

Mark Halperin: Press 'Biased Against' Hillary

February 11th, 2016 5:54 PM
Any would-be Republican presidential candidate who had--hanging around his neck--all the scandals and investigations that surround Hillary Clinton, would likely not have the chutzpah to throw his hat into the ring. He'd know that the MSM would create such a toxic environment that his candidacy would never have a chance of getting off the ground.  And so it is somewhere between amusing and…

Bozell & Graham Column: Obama, Seriously Out of Touch

December 8th, 2015 11:44 PM
Barack Obama wanted 15 minutes of air time on Sunday night, the most heavily watched night of the week, to speak to the nation about the San Bernardino shooting. It was appropriate for the president to request it, and for the networks to grant it, but everyone knew he would say nothing new of substance because on the matter of Islamic terrorism, he never does. And he didn’t. And in so not doing…

While NBC’s Lester Holt was wondering before President Obama’s speech Sunday night if it would “be a defining moment for this presidency,” his counterparts on ABC and PBS picked up where he left off afterward by enthusiastically praising how “struck” they were by “a stern and direct” Obama “laying out" what Obama called "a strong and smart strategy” to deal with terrorism.

NPR, PBS Shamelessly Ignore 2015 Elections in 'Week in Politics'

November 7th, 2015 7:11 AM
National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service have attempted on Fridays to run a “Week in Politics” segment and PBS even has a long-standing show called Washington Week. But on Friday, all these programs discussed a “week” utterly without any analysis of the 2015 elections. Try to imagine how the media would have covered it if the transgender “equal rights” initiative won in Houston…

Networks Sidestep Obama's Defense Spending Veto; ABC, NBC Air Nothing

October 26th, 2015 4:03 PM
On Thursday, October 22, 2015, President Barack Obama signed a veto message of the National Defense Authorization Act. The NDAA establishes budgets and policies for the Defense Department, and in the last 53 years it has only been vetoed four times. Coverage of the veto signing and its significance has been rather dismal despite Obama summoning the White House press for a public signing. ABC and…

September 2nd, 2015 3:57 PM

August 16th, 2015 9:56 AM

Tom Steyer Tells PBS He's 'David' Standing Against Koch 'Goliath'

May 27th, 2015 12:17 PM
Apparently Tom Steyer knows his Bible better than he knows math. Or perhaps he just hasn't had a heart to heart with his accountant in several years.  Liberal climate change activist and political donor Tom Steyer likened himself to David, fighting against the "Goliath" of conservative political donors, in a May 26 interview with PBS NewsHour. He lamented, "when you look at the relatie dollars,…
