FLASHBACK: Media’s Gushing Goodbye to Castro: ‘Tears of Sorrow’

It was five years ago this week, on November 25, 2016, that Cuba’s Fidel Castro died Rather than focus mostly on how repressive he had been, many outlets could not stop themselves from hailing the murderous dictator.

NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Did MSNBC Smear Rittenhouse as Racist? Yes!

In a special long-weekend edition of the NewsBusters Podcast, we look back to answer the question: How energetically did MSNBC smear Kyle Rittenhouse as a white supremacist, white nationalist, or racist?

Pollyanna? Scarborough Echoes Trump In Predicting COVID Gone By Spring

When Donald Trump was president, Joe Scarborough ceaselessly mocked him for his overly-optimistic predictions at the beginning of the pandemic as to when Covid would be gone. Among other things, Scarborough endlessly repeated Trump's erroneous forecast that Covid would be gone "by April." Scarborough's repetitions of those lines became such a running joke on Morning Joe, that the show devoted…

WashPost Promotes All Their Leftist and Anti-Trump Books of 2021

Maybe it shouldn’t be surprising when The Washington Post makes a list of the “Best Books” of the year, and then uses it to promote books by their own staff. But it looks more like advertising than book criticism.

CNN Orders Americans: Don't Blame Biden for Economy!

How often did we hear, “The buck stops here,” from the media during the Trump years? Journalists never failed to hold the Republican president accountable for anything bad that happened in the country, whether it was deserved or not. But standards have lowered significantly with Democrat Joe Biden in office. We’re seeing this play out now as media outlets refuse to blame the president for the…

Nasty NYT Conflates GOP Border Control, School Protests with Neo-Nazis

New York Times reporter Alan Feuer made the front page on Thanksgiving with his “news analysis” equating neo-Nazi marchers with border control measures, school board protesters, even Kaepernick critics: “Charlottesville’s Extremist Theories Echo in the Mainstream Right.” Feuer promoted dangerous left-wing extremism back in June 2006 from a convention of 9-11 truthers.…

Column: The Politics of Weaponized Car Attacks

As we learn more about the senseless SUV attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin, some liberal media outlets are energetically attempting to spin away from the suspect Darrell Brooks and his left-wing politics on social media. In their Thanksgiving edition, USA Today’s front page explored the politics of “vehicle ramming.” But they shifted the scrutiny back to people who resent “Black…

Interviewed by Jonathan Capehart on The 11th Hour regarding the outcome of the trial of the three men charged in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, MSNBC contributor and former Obama appointee Brittany Packnett Cunningham never once mentions that a virtually all-white jury in a Deep South had convicted all three defendants of murder. Instead, Cunningham downplays the verdicts as "…

Editor's Pick: RedState on Media Softening the Waukesha Massacre

On Tuesday, Sister Toldjah at RedState penned a piece titled "We Need to Talk About How the Media Is Labeling the Waukesha Massacre." While "attack" or "rampage" isn't uncommon, some accounts are somehow softening the linguistic blow. NBC News referred to it as an “accident." PBS, Newsweek, and the Associated Press used the word “crash” in their headlines.

New Expose on the Time FDR Messed With Thanksgiving (and Regretted It)

The holiday of Thanksgiving is under a yearly attack from liberals who find the holiday hateful and a “day of mourning.” But a newly reissued book on the history of the day finds it’s not the first time Thanksgiving has been under fire. Conservatives will find chapter 7 particularly interesting: It reminds readers of Franklin Roosevelt’s botched attempt to mess with the holiday.
