NY Times Journo Compares GOP in 'Trump Uniform' to Saddam Loyalists

On Saturday's Chris Wallace Show, the CNN host couldn't help making fun of Republicans turning up at the Trump trial all wearing navy blazers, white shirts, and red ties. On screen, the mocking caption was "WHO WORE THE TRUMP UNIFORM BEST?" But New York Times reporter and podcaster Lulu Garcia-Navarro took it to another level comparing the Republicans to bootlickers of Iraqi…

As United Methodist Church Empties Out, PBS Embraces LGBTQ Takeover

The latest example of taxpayer-supported celebration of the gender alphabet came on Friday’s PBS NewsHour. Anchor Geoff Bennett set the scene of a Christian denomination in crisis. But after laying out the grim facts, Bennett didn’t grill his guest, Rev. Valerie Jackson, about the mass exodus from the denomination. He certainly didn’t invite an opposing religious conservative voice into the…

FLASHBACK: Leftist Media HATED Republicans Long Before Trump

It’s one of those rhetorical devices you often hear on the liberal networks: media condemnations of “today’s Republican Party,” suggesting that if only Ronald Reagan, George Bush, or Mitt Romney were in charge instead of Donald Trump, journalists would be brimming with respect for the Grand Old Party. But it’s all convenient revisionism; the same media aggressively trashed yesterday’s…

Politico Media Critic: Fox News Coverage of Trump Trial's a 'Brownout'

MSNBC Crickets As Nadler Flip-Flops On Providing Arms For Israel

On MSNBC's The Weekend, none of the trio of co-hosts challenge Dem Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, who expresses support for Biden's plan to cut off certain military supplies to Israel if it goes into  Rafah. That represents a 180-degree flip-flop from Nadler's position in 2019, when Donald Trump was president, when Nadler said : "Democrats who have expressed support for leveraging aid to…

PBS Wrecks Texas for Abbott's Pardon: 'White Right-Wing Conservatives'

The PBS NewsHour on Friday questioned Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s pardon of “convicted killer Daniel Perry” as a sop to the white right. Host Geoff Bennett loaded his lead to tar Abbott’s decision right from the start.

PolitiFact Spins For Democrats On Late-Term Abortion

There are three things certain in life: death, taxes, and self-styled fact-checkers defending Democrats on late-term abortion. The latest example came on Friday from D.L. Davis who gave Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson a “false” label for claiming “Every Senate Democrat has voted to support unlimited abortions up to the moment of birth.”

ABC, Once Again, Helps The Left Smear Alito

After not-so cleverly trying and failing to get Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from important Supreme Court cases related to January 6, the left and the media have moved on to try to not-so cleverly get Justice Samuel Alito to recuse himself based on a photo of an upside-down flag outside his home that was said to show support for the rioters. On Saturday’s Good Morning America…

PBS 'News' Bias: Upside-Down Alito Flag Bigger Than Kavanaugh Assassin

On Friday’s PBS NewsHour, the Week in Review segment dove into the New York Times “scoop” that the flag flew upside down for a few days in January 2021 outside the home of Supreme Court justice Samuel Alito. This was Big News? Two years ago, when a man showed up outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house intending to assassinate him, the NewsHour didn’t find…

NewsBusters Podcast: Lawrence O'Donnell's Cheesy Trump Trial Diaries

Part of the endless Trump trial coverage on MSNBC was The Last Word host Lawrence O'Donnell reading what sounded like bad diary entries on courtroom happenings. Porn star Stormy Daniels dressed loosely in black, which "suggested the modesty of a nun." How bizarre.
