PBS: Media Losing 'Gatekeeping Powers' Results In Demise of Democracy
Nobel Peace Prize winner and former CNN reporter Maria Ressa continued her book tour on Wednesday’s Amanpour and Company on PBS where she declared that the reason why democracy is backsliding across the world is because the media “lost our gatekeeping powers to technology.”
Column: PBS Gushes Through Democrats Week In Review
When the "Twitter Files" came out on Friday night, taxpayer-funded PBS couldn't find it. On Washington Week, they were too busy gushing over the "new historic group leading the Democratic Party in the House" and then insisting Kevin McCarthy had a "rocky, rocky week" with the Republicans.
Hillary, PBS: Pro-Lifers Akin to Iran, Taliban, Russian War Criminals
Hillary Clinton joined PBS’s Amanpour and Company on Thursday to preview the Clinton Presidential Center’s upcoming summit on the status of women’s rights around the world. For the former Secretary of State, the state of women’s rights in Iran, in Afghanistan under the Taliban, and in Ukraine where Russian soldiers use rape as a weapon is analogous to Arkansas, where pro-lifers run…
Ken Burns Hysterically Warns of 'Authoritarianism,' 'Nationalism'
Documentarian Ken Burns took his book tour to PBS’s Amanpour and Company on Tuesday where he hysterically warned that “authoritarianism” and “nationalism” are on the rise in America putting everything from elections to the independent judiciary in trouble. With analysis such as that, it should not be surprising Burns was both short on facts and hypocritical when making his assessment…
PBS Welcomes CCP Hack to Praise Zero-COVID Policy, Trash Protestors
For Tuesday’s edition of Amanpour and Company on PBS and CNN International, host Christiane Amanpour welcomed Victor Gao of the China National Association of International Studies to praise China’s zero-COVID policy and condemn the protestors calling for Xi Jinping’s removal. While it would not be fair to say Amanpour lobbed softballs to Gao, she was not as tough as she should’ve been…
On PBS, David Brooks Expresses Desire for 'European-Style' Gun Laws
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, New York Times columnist David Brooks responded to a question about lame-duck legislation after several mass shootings. He was pessimistic about anything passing, but touted the idea of "a massive cultural shift" to "regard our common good, more frankly, in a European style," instead of our terribly "individualistic" gun culture.
PBS Blames DeSantis, 'Right-Wing Influencers' For Colorado Shooting
A Thursday interview of Equality Florida press secretary Brandon Wolf by PBS Amanpour and Company’s Hari Sreenivasan was taped before the revelation that the Colorado Springs shooter identifies as non-binary, but that is not an excuse for blaming Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and “right-wing influencers” for motivating others to commit or threaten to commit acts of violence.
NPR, PBS Air Totally One-Sided Interviews with New Trans Legislators
The leftists who make endless propaganda with our tax money have laid out a plush red carpet for newly elected bisexual transgender radicals in state legislatures. On Thursday, NPR's All Things Considered typically failed to consult an opposing point of view in a tenderly promotional eight-minute interview. PBS NewsHour did the same.
Fight! PBS Pundits Hotly Disagree on a New Special Counsel for Trump
The Friday night "Week In Review" pundits on the PBS NewsHour had an actual disagreement, with Jonathan Capehart scribbling furiously during the more conservative half of the debate. The lead topic was Attorney General Merrick Garland naming another special counsel to hound Donald Trump.
Flashback: When Dems Lost ’02 Midterms, Liberals Blamed Fox News
Twenty years ago, Democrats lost a midterm election they had expected to win. But instead of blaming “candidate quality” or a party message that was out of synch with voters, liberal pundits whined that the real problem was that the media were too slanted towards conservatives for liberals to get a fair shake. That’s right, a pro-conservative press.
Meet the New AOC: NPR, PBS, MSNBC Gush Over 25-Year-Old Maxwell Frost
AOC recently turned 33, so it’s time for a younger socialist Democrat for the media to swoon over. In September, I found at least eight sappy national interviews with 25-year-old Maxwell Frost in Florida. After he won the general election in a blue district by 19 points and became the first member of Generation Z to win a House seat, the swoon cycle began all over again.
PBS Hails Election As Win For Abortion, Defeat Of Putin, Xi, And Trump
When Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart and New York Times columnist David Brooks joined PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff for their Friday recap of the week’s news, the natural topic of conversation was the election results. Capehart’s big takeaway was that things other than the economy, like abortion, saved Democrats while Brooks cheered the demise of…
Jemele Hill: MSNBC Racist To Fire Cross, Others 'Voting For Cruelty'
The Atlantic’s Jemele Hill book tour took her to Thursday’s Amanpour and Company on PBS to discuss her life and career as a sports journalist who has become a left-wing activist. During the sit-down, Hill would suggest it was racist for MSNBC to fire Tiffany Cross and alleged that “many people are comfortable voting for cruelty.”
Capehart Declares Liberals Are Right To 'Feel Apocalyptic'
Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart joined New York Times columnist David Brooks and PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff on Friday for their weekly recap of the news that was. Capehart declared that as the country heads into the midterms, people are right to “feel apocalyptic” because “they are personally at risk.”
