Pro-Choice? NPR Can Mourn a Miscarriage, Happily Air Audio of Abortion

September 24th, 2023 4:42 PM

On Thursday night's All Things Considered, NPR aired what someone might call a heart-tugging pro-life story. But NPR wouldn't. They are "pro-choice," meaning that an unborn baby is a loved human being when that's what the mother decides it is. When the woman decides it's like a tumor that must be removed, there is no humanity to be identified. 


Rupert Rant: NPR’s Folkenflik Rips ‘Corrosive…Right-Wing’ Fox on PBS

September 24th, 2023 8:19 AM

The "public" broadcasting elite loathes Fox News. When news broke that 92-year-old media mogul Rupert Murdoch, Fox News founder and chairman of News Corp, is stepping down in favor of his son Lachlan, that encouraged tax-funded PBS to trot out Murdoch-bashing journalist David Folkenflik of tax-funded National Public Radio on Thursday evening to lament the chairman’s "corrosive" right-…


Column: 'Public Broadcasting' Bored Silly by Republican Hearings

September 21st, 2023 6:00 AM

Attorney General Merrick Garland offered a “fiery defense” in a “grueling hearing” of a House Judiciary Committee “stocked with far-right stalwarts,” as The New York Times described it. A special bucket of opprobrium should go to what they call “public broadcasting,” PBS and NPR. On the PBS NewsHour, they could barely manage a two-minute story on the Garland hearing.

Why Does NPR Hate Democracy? Can't Stand 'Book Ban' of Ibram X. Kendi

September 9th, 2023 6:34 AM

On Friday's Morning Edition, NPR lamented the "surge" in book bans across America. Apparently, democracy works best in America when educators get to assign left-wing propaganda about how America is deeply racist, and no one objects. "One parent" caused a "book ban" in North Carolina -- a book by radical leftist Ibram X. Kendi.

Column: Unprofessional Media Tie DeSantis to a Mass Shooting

August 30th, 2023 5:54 AM

One of the most infuriating and tiresome tactics our hyperpartisan media employ is trying to tie a mass shooting to conservative policy or rhetoric. Speaking out against critical race theory in our schools shouldn’t be thrown on a greasy slope with inspiring violent death.


Return of the King: Doocy Goes Guns Blazing Post-Paternity Leave

August 29th, 2023 10:24 AM

Fox White House correspondent Peter Doocy finally made his return to the White House Briefing Room Monday after paternity leave and, given his long time away, he came out guns blazing on Biden family corruption and even the latest attempt by the federal bureaucracy to further encroach on the lives of ordinary Americans. On both counts, he made Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre look even more…

Insane NPR Reporter Ties 'Rich Men' Song to 'Anti-Semitic Blood Libel'

August 27th, 2023 8:08 PM

National Public Radio is stirring up liberal hysteria again, courtesy of Odette Yousef, who works the outlets “extremism” beat (as in solely “right-wing” extremism). The latest extremist idea she’s latched onto: A song, the raw, countrified tune “Rich Men North of Richmond,” a populist plea from singer/songwriter Oliver Anthony criticizing taxes and welfare, made history by debuting…

Fox-Hating NPR Reporter Calmly Promotes CNN Max Like a CNN Employee

August 27th, 2023 6:46 AM

The Fox News debate on Wednesday led inevitably to NPR media reporter David Folkenflik performing stories number 45 and 46 this year against Fox News. But on Friday night, his report on CNN Max sounded more like an advertisement than a news report. At NPR, CNN is just a "news organization," not a hyperpartisan and conspiratorial channel.


Donald Trump Goes After Environmentalist Tyrants on Tucker

August 24th, 2023 1:30 PM

NPR Spin: Trump's In Danger, Biden's Like the Second Coming of Carter

August 20th, 2023 4:18 PM

NewsBusters Podcast: PBS Uses NPR to Blow Off GOP Anger at David Weiss

August 14th, 2023 11:23 PM

Republicans were angry that the Biden Justice Department "promoted" David Weiss to Special Counsel in the Hunter Biden probe. But PBS (and NPR's legal reporter) didn't think House Republicans were worth quoting or mentioning.

NPR Airs MASSIVE Story On the 'Cost' of Parents Pushing 'Book Bans'

August 14th, 2023 1:17 PM

On Saturday night's horribly named show All Things Considered, Boston-based NPR reporter Tovia Smith filed a 12-and-a-half minute story warning "The battle over books comes at a cost." Librarians have been smeared as evil people and their lives have been put in danger by nasty right-wingers. In this whole story, NPR successfully avoided mentioning the content of any sexually explicit…

NPR’s New Idiocy: ‘How Racism Became Marketing Tool For Country Music'

August 12th, 2023 9:37 AM

National Public Radio’s pop-culture show “It’s Been a Minute” bravely tackled the made-up problem of racist country music, in the wake of the failed censorship of singer Jason Aldrean’s hit “Try That in a Small Town.” Tax-funded NPR blurbed the August 1 radio segment under this heading: “How racism became a marketing tool for country music.”
