WashPost Promotes 'More Radical' Gun-Controllers Harassing NRA Leader

April 21st, 2018 10:19 PM
In 2010, some Obamacare opponents conducted scattered protests at politicians' homes. They backed away from the tactic when Tea Party groups and others declared that home protests should be out of bounds. Don't expect leftist protesters to receive any similar admonishments — especially if they continue to receive borderline-sympathetic coverage like protesting gun-control promoters, and even a…

WashPost Dismisses Teen-Tapping Legislator as a 'Fleeting Sideshow'

December 23rd, 2014 8:01 PM
The affair of Virginia State Delegate Joseph Morrissey – the 57-year-old legislator bedding a 17-year-old legal aide – was a juicy story the late Ben Bradlee might have adored. But the Post didn’t put a news story on the front page of the Metro section until last Friday, December 19, five days after they buried it on C-7. The story underlined why the Democrat-backers at the Post found this…

WashPost Does Pro-Choice Va. Dem a Solid, Promoting His Campaign Ad

September 16th, 2014 4:24 PM
In an 11-paragraph piece in today's Washington Post, staff writer Rachel Weiner did Democrat John Foust a favor, promoting his new campaign ad savaging Republican opponent Barbara Comstock. Foust and Comstock are competing to win the approval of voters in Virginia's 10th Congressional District.

WashPost Obsesses Over Pro-life Legislator's Remark, Buries Real Democ

February 26th, 2014 7:40 PM
Judging by the coverage, the Washington Post thinks a pro-life Republican state senator's sharply-worded rebuke of abortion-rights absolutists is twice as newsworthy as an ethically-challenged nominee to the Democratic governor's Cabinet. How else do you explain the 16 paragraphs which Post staffer Rachel Weiner devoted to Virginia State Sen. Stephen Martin (R) compared with a mere eight…

Yet Again, WashPost Omits Illegal Immigrant Status of Vanessa Pham's M

November 18th, 2013 5:44 PM
On Friday, convicted murderer and illegal immigrant Julio Blanco Garcia was sentenced to 49 years' imprisonment for the June 2010 murder of northern Virginia resident Vanessa Pham. True to form, in covering the story, the Washington Post's Rachel Weiner and Justin Jouvenal completely omitted the fact that Blanco Garcia was an illegal immigrant. But in addition to omitting Blanco Garcia's…

WSJ Omits Jackson Jr.'s Party Affiliation; NYTimes Leads With It, But

August 15th, 2013 3:45 PM
Of the East Coast's most prestigious papers -- The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post -- only the Journal today failed to note Jesse Jackson Junior's Democratic Party affiliation, with staff writer Devlin Barrett failing to mention that fact in his 11-paragraph story. For their part, Washington Post staffers Ann Marimow and Rachel Weiner did mention Jackson is a…

WaPo Writer Calls Chalian Smear a 'Joke,' But Called Romney's Birther

August 29th, 2012 11:22 PM
Last night, Yahoo! News Washington Bureau Chief, David Chalian, slandered Romney by saying that the Republican nominee and his wife, Ann, were "happy to have a party with black people drowning."  These remarks were made during ABCNews.com's webcast of their coverage of the RNC convention.  As a result, Mr. Chalian has been fired by Yahoo!, but some liberal journalists aren't happy about it.…

WashPost Editorial Misleads Readers About Florida Voter Roll Cleanup E

August 24th, 2012 6:09 PM
The Washington Post editorial board today set out to slam Florida's Republican governor for "threaten[ing] the integrity of elections" with his voter "purge" effort and for enforcing the state's new curtailed early-voting hours. But in their editorial on the matter, the Post misled readers with deceptive language about how the state undertook its voter roll cleanup effort (emphasis mine):

WaPo Asks: Was Obama's Jonas Brothers Drone Joke Offensive

May 4th, 2010 1:12 AM
President Obama's Correspondents' Dinner joke about using a predator drone to kill the Jonas Brothers if they touched his daughters has inflamed some liberals, so much so the Washington Post is running an online poll about the matter."The Jonas Brothers are here, they're out there somewhere," the President said Saturday evening (video right)."Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don't get any…

Conservative Bible Project Draws Predictable Liberal Scorn

October 6th, 2009 6:56 PM
As NewsBusters' Ken Shepherd noted in an October 5 post, some conservatives have undertaken an online Conservative Bible Project to rid the Good Book of "translational bias" and correct the "lack of precision" in both original and translational language. As Shepherd also noted, Time Magazine's Amy Sullivan wasted no time heaping derision on the effort. Unsurprisingly, others on the left have…
