Outraged, Anti-Trump Reporters Were Silent Over Obama’s Press Attacks
May 12th, 2018 4:00 PM
According to a new Media Research Center study, 90 percent of the President’s coverage in 2018 has been negative. However, that hasn’t stopped journalists about whining about the President limiting press freedom. What happened when Barack Obama actually did that? Nothing.
NYT Runs Risens’ Risible McCarthyite Projections About Trump
June 25th, 2017 2:56 PM
It was Father-and-Son Left-Wing Paranoia Day in the New York Times Sunday Review, as James Risen and Tom Risen penned “Donald Trump Does His Best Joe McCarthy.” Under the assuredly ominous date-line of Wheeling, West Virginia, the Risens ranted: "Trump supporters want to make America great again, to go back to what they believe were the halcyon days of the 1950s, which, ironically, was the decade…
NYT Columnist Forwards Phony Fears of ‘Self-Censorship’ in Trump Era
February 18th, 2017 5:01 PM
New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg, hyper-sensitive to threats to his profession from fearsome President Trump -- found his most dubious one yet and wrote it up as a dark threat barely averted in Saturday’s “A Newsroom Risk In the Trump Era: Self-Censorship.” He got right into the drama, with Trump as a fascist-in-formation: "This is how the muzzling starts: not with a boot on your neck…

June 5th, 2016 3:40 PM
In a moment of absolute candor on CNN’s Reliable Sources, David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun laid into President Barack Obama and set the record straight about who’s a bigger threat to the press.

Leak-Probed NYT Reporter On Obama: 'The Greatest Enemy to Press Freedo
August 18th, 2014 10:03 AM
Not every reporter in Obama's Washington likes to be seen as a soft touch. Take James Risen of The New York Times, the subject of a leak probe over his CIA reporting in a 2006 book. In a positive column by his Times colleague Maureen Dowd, she touted how at a pickup basketball game, "Risen got in a fight with a lobbyist about the rules for being out of bounds."
Carl Hulse, The Times’s chief…
Obama Protests the Arrest of Journalists; Many Compare to Obama's Hist
August 15th, 2014 9:36 AM
Obama declared on Wednesday, “Here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs.”
The Columbia Journalism Review website was among the many – including Rush Limbaugh on the radio – who saw the hypocrisy, since President Obama is our nation’s most prosecutorial president toward journalists:
Greta Hammers Jay Carney as 'Delusional' for Claiming Fox News Runs 'R
April 17th, 2014 11:09 PM
Thursday was a busy time for White House press secretary Jay Carney. First, he claimed that the toughest interview president Barack Obama had in 2012 was moderated by Comedy Central's Jon Stewart. As if that wasn't bizarre enough, he later stated that “there has never been a more transparent administration,” a situation that “creates headaches for us and ridiculous stories on Fox News.”
AP and Politico Both Sleep as Risen Calls Obama Admin 'Greatest Enemy
March 25th, 2014 3:15 PM
A search on the name of James Risen (not in quotes) returns nothing relevant at the Associated Press. All that comes back at the Politico is a link to a post yesterday at Dylan Byers' On Media Blog containing one pertinent sentence: "James Risen slams the Obama administration." Whoopee.
Risen is the Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist for The New York Times who has been in the Obama…
Bozell Column: Obama, The Media's Favorite Autocrat
January 29th, 2014 12:33 PM
Everyone proposes drinking games for the State of the Union speech. But it’s not just the president that can drive you to drink. It’s the opportunistic media elites deciding which branches of government have too much power, depending on which branches the Democrats presently control.
After a lot of stalemate in 2013, the partisan media think it’s high time for the executive branch to go…

The New York Times and National Security Secrets: Obama vs. Bush
February 7th, 2013 3:38 PM
News that the New York Times and Washington Post kept secret until recently the secret U.S. drone base in Saudi Arabia is once again raising questions on the paper's politicized double standards on keeping state secrets related to the war on terror.
Contrast the deference paid to the Obama administration's request for secrecy, going along with the national security arguments advanced by Obama…
NYT and WaPo Got Pulitzers Disclosing Secrets Under Bush – Those Sec
February 7th, 2013 9:03 AM
The media complicity in President Obama's drone strategy gets more and more astonishing with each passing day.
On Wednesday, Britain's Guardian published a piece with the incredible sub-headline "New York Times and Washington Post knew about secret drone base in Saudi Arabia but agreed not to disclose it to the public."
