April 23rd, 2024 1:51 PM

Sunday’s edition of PBS News Weekend spent 13 minutes out of its allotted 25 taking the loose liberal attitude toward homelessness (or “the unhoused”) as a Supreme Court case looms.

March 20th, 2024 8:25 PM

PBS again went to bat for the “LGBTQ-Plus” warriors on the PBS News Weekend Sunday, lamenting a slight dip in America’s gushing over the alphabet folks in “U.S. support for LGBTQ+ rights is declining after decades of support.

PBS: ‘Pregnant People’ Fooled By ‘So-Called Crisis Pregnancy Centers'

March 3rd, 2024 10:45 PM

PBS News Weekend anchor John Yang on Saturday threw some trendy trans silliness into his introduction to a news story suspicious of crisis pregnancy centers that actually help women deliver their babies instead of aborting them (which PBS has no problem with): Crisis pregnancy centers provide counseling and other prenatal services from an anti-abortion perspective.

Tax-Funded PBS, NPR Eagerly Push Planned Parenthood 'Study' of Rapes

January 29th, 2024 6:43 AM

PBS and NPR are funded by taxpayers – federal, state, and local. But they’re “owned” by the Left. Look no further than a very biased Planned Parenthood study fishing numbers out of the air to assert that there were more than 64,000 “people” who became pregnant from rapes in red states with abortion bans. No one who would criticize or even question this effort was allowed on air.

January 22nd, 2024 10:29 PM

On Saturday’s edition of PBS News Weekend, the abortion expert relied upon by PBS, professor Mary Ziegler, made an embarrassing flub of a basic fact, apparently confusing the Hyde Amendment of 1976, which outlawed federal funding for abortion, to the Comstock Act of 1873, making Ziegler just over a century off. Ziegler, professor at the University of California-Davis Law School, was…

PBS Remains Willfully Ignorant on How Shuttering Schools Hurt Kids

January 20th, 2024 11:18 PM

PBS NewsHour devoted two stories about children struggling in schools after the COVID pandemic.

PBS Marks Fringe Liberal Win: Old MN Flag 'Cluttered, Genocidal Mess'

January 9th, 2024 10:36 PM

Taxpayer-funded PBS once again pushed a fringe issue into the forefront of the news. This time it was a purely symbolic one.

PBS Takes Up Issue of Homelessness, But Biden Blame Is Brushed Off

December 28th, 2023 7:23 AM

On Christmas Eve, PBS News Weekend found the publicly-funded outlet pushing that old "war on poverty" agenda that not even other networks are covering: homelessness. This used to be a larger issue for PBS and the press, which was at home criticizing Republican presidents for people on the street during the late 1980s, blaming Reagan and Bush. But blame for Biden was brushed…

Wade…
