NPR Enables Jeffries: We Won't Pay 'Ransom Note' to GOP 'Extremists'
NPR sounded like National Democrat Radio again on Friday as Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep interviewed House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. It was extremely reminiscent of Inskeep's regular puffball interviews with President Obama, as Jeffries is clearly trying to project that same fake-moderation, and Inskeep is trying to help.The NPR headline is the DNC headline: "Hakeem…
Column: NPR Drops Bombs on the 'Hard Right Republicans In Congress'
My maxim on the media’s use of ideological labeling is “The epic political battles of our time are between the ultraconservatives and the nonpartisans.” Journalists see Republicans as a whole as ultraconservative, or as a wholly owned subsidiary of the ultraconservatives. Exhibit A is NPR's program Fresh Air with Terry Gross, which isn't fresh at all.
NPR AM Show Mocks Fox-Driven Gas Stove Panic, Ignores Their Own 'News'
NPR’s Morning Edition tried to have it both ways Friday, both mocking right-wing concern over banning gas stoves and also suggesting a ban could be in the works after all. The set-up was galling. Why would taking the head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission seriously when he said a gas stove ban was on the table require the expertise of NPR’s “conspiracy theory” reporter Lisa…
Throwing Joe Overboard? WH Press Corps EVISCERATE KJP in Wild Briefing
Tuesday’s White House press briefing marked another installment of a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day for the inept Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre as, while she ignored journalists from the Daily Caller, Fox News, and Newsmax about President Biden’s classified documents scandal, she ran into a proverbial buzzsaw from outlets such as ABC, the AP, CBS, CBS News Radio, NBC, and NPR…
Propaganda Acolytes: 54 Soros-Tied Figures Linked to Major Media
The over $32 billion that leftist billionaire George Soros poured into his organizations to spread his radical “open society” agenda on abortion, Marxist economics, anti-Americanism, defunding the police, environmental extremism and LGBT fanaticism around the globe has paid dividends.
NewsBusters Podcast: Classified Documents and Double Standards
CBS broke the news on Monday that Biden's lawyers disclosed they have discovered classified documents in an office at the University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center in the nation's capital. The "roughly 10" documents are from President Biden's vice-presidential office at the center, which opened in 2018.
NewsBusters Podcast: Biden Visits Border, NPR Asks Why Border Control?
President Biden's visit to the border in El Paso was greeted by liberal media operatives in two noticeable ways. Either they sympathized with Biden's work on this "complex" issue, or -- like NPR's Steve Inskeep -- they asked Team Biden "why" they would tell people not to come to America and cross the border illegally? MRC Latino Director Jorge Bonilla offers his expertise on these matters.
NPR Attacks Rush Limbaugh and Salem Radio in Seven-Minute Hit Piece
On Friday's Morning Edition, co-host Steve Inskeep broadcast some unintentional hilarity when offering a seven-minute attack on conservative talk radio starring Katie Thornton, who has a liberal podcast series called "The Divided Dial." NPR's website summarized the segment as NPR "examines how right-wing radio spreads misinformation." The lodestar of this "misinformation"? The late…
NPR's TV Critic Laments 'Copaganda' Shows, Elon, and Stelter Firing
National Public Radio television critic Eric Deggans issued a left-wing-tinged, year-end lament on the state of the media: “Six ways media took a big step backward in 2022.” Deggans was particularly obsessed with Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, but spared some sadness for (former) CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and (former) lefty late-night host Samantha Bee.
Column: Coddling Kamala Harris at Christmas
At year’s end, Vice President Kamala Harris is making the rounds of syrupy and supportive interviews, but you can still wonder which of her communications staffers is going to quit after aerobically trying to prepare her for these softball sessions. NPR let the VP talk ad infinitum, leading one to think that the Democrats absolutely own NPR. They are dominant, and NPR is submissive.…
NPR Touts Biden's 'Pretty Respectable List of Accomplishments'
As Christmas nears and the year comes to a close, NPR's Mara Liasson grew warm and fuzzy about Joe Biden's legacy, living up to his promises of bipartisanship and creating a "pretty respectable list of accomplishments." Is this news, or advertising? At NPR, it's tickling the tummies of its Democrat listeners and donors.
NPR Smears Twitter Files as 'Ugly' Musk 'Stunt' That Spurred Threats
Taxpayer-subsidized NPR had been aggressively ignoring the "Twitter Files" revelations, but when they finally acknowledged them on Tuesday's Morning Edition, the new information was described as an "attention-grabbing stunt," "not a bombshell," and an "ugly" spectacle causing threats of violence to Dr. Anthony Fauci and former Twitter "trust and safety" czar Yoel Roth.
NPR Interview with Newt Goes Down Hilarious Path of Liberal Disbelief
NPR interviewed Newt Gingrich for Friday's All Things Considered, ostensibly to underline how successful President Biden has been. Their headline at NPR.org was "Newt Gingrich thinks the GOP needs to stop underestimating Biden." Anchor Mary Louise Kelly couldn't help but steer the car into the woods when Newt said the 2020 election was "rigged," as in Twitter censorship and…
NPR: GOP Bills on 'Gender-Affirming Care' Could Cause Teen Suicides
On Monday, NPR posted a very one-sided report headlined “Bills targeting trans youth are growing more common — and radically reshaping lives.” Republicans are “targeting” the “trans kids,” and they might kill themselves.
