Journos on PBS Discuss Need to Prevent Airing Trump Live Like CNN Did
May 16th, 2023 2:40 PM
More public broadcasting arrogance was on display on the tax-funded PBS weekly political roundtable Washington Week Friday evening, as journalists huddled around their tax-supported digital fires to brainstorm ideas on how to trip up Republican candidate Donald Trump’s appeal in 2024 by denying him live coverage, as if the press is the first and final arbiter of who should speak…
Journos on PBS: House GOP Hasn't 'Landed a Punch' on Biden Scandals
April 23rd, 2023 8:15 AM
Friday’s PBS NewsHour pundits discussed Biden preparing to announce a re-election bid without mentioning this week’s big Hunter Biden scoops, and the same thing happened on the PBS journalist roundtable Washington Week. In the show’s last minute, they discussed House GOP investigations – but not Hunter’s name. Reporter Heather Caygle of Punchbowl News said “Have they landed a…
PBS 'Washington Week' Brings On Staunch Lefty Journo to Tout Kamala
February 13th, 2023 4:42 PM
Just as the PBS NewsHour can't stand the idea of a journalist from the conservative media doing the Friday "Week in Review," the Friday night journalist roundtable Washington Week can't imagine putting on a Fox News journalist to share reporting insights from the week. But woke anchor Yamiche Alcindor is perfectly happy to put on her fellow MSNBC pundit Errin Haines, an …

On PBS’s weekly journalist roundtable show Washington Week, National Public Radio Weekend Edition host Ayesha Rascoe and NBC News’ Ryan Nobles (formerly at CNN) discussed the brutal, fatal attack on Tyre Nichols, expanding from the killing to explore bizarre explanations for the attack by the five black police officers, including “white supremacy,” “food insecurity,” and even…
CNN’s Henderson Hits ‘So-Called’ Pro-Life, Hails ‘Decent Person' BIden
January 24th, 2023 3:05 PM
On PBS’s weekly journalist roundtable show Washington Week, Nia-Malika Henderson of CNN hit a trifecta of liberal bias, dismissing the import of President Biden’s classified document scandal, taking a crack at the “so-called pro-life movement,” and using a failed Republican candidate from New Mexico to claim that election denialism and violent rhetoric was a…
Column: PBS Gushes Through Democrats Week In Review
December 7th, 2022 6:10 AM
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.
Column: Brainy Reporters Play Dumb on 'Obamagate'
May 22nd, 2020 7:01 AM
President Trump has tweeted feverishly about “Obamagate,” loosely defined as everything the Obama-Biden team did to ruin Trump’s candidacy (and then presidency) using their executive-branch powers. The Trump-loathing press has responded with an unusual tactic. The self-appointed guardians of democracy who have auditioned themselves as America’s great explainers are playing dumb.
CNN's Fact-Mangling Moderator Still Sticking Up for Elizabeth Warren
March 7th, 2020 7:13 AM
CNN's Abby Phillip appeared Friday night on the PBS journalist-roundup Washington Week, and was offered the floor to condemn all the sexism in the Democratic Party now that Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the presidential race. In January, Phillip mangled facts in a debate by repeating Warren's claim that Bernie Sanders told her in 2018 a woman couldn't win. He denied saying it twice, and she…

April 14th, 2019 7:50 AM
Appearing on PBS reporter roundtable on Washington Week Friday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell complained that Republicans have “controlled the narrative” when it comes to the Mueller report. She also acted like she was a Democratic strategist for a second by urging the Democrats to focus on health care instead of obsessing about Mueller and Russia.
PBS's Costa Wrongly Suggests George Wallace Was a Republican
December 15th, 2017 10:41 PM
Some liberal journalists just can't get the notion out of their minds that George Wallace was a Republican, even though the former segregationist governor of Alabama was a lifelong Democrat. On Friday's Washington Week on PBS, host Robert Costa -- also a Washington Post reporter -- suggested that Wallace was a part of the Republican party's "past" as he recalled that some black voters in Alabama…
Liberal PBS Partisan Gwen Ifill Getting Award for 'Fairness'
August 10th, 2016 3:54 PM
On Wednesday, Columbia University’s Journalism School announced that liberal PBS NewsHour anchor Gwen Ifill would be the recipient of the graduate program’s 2016 John Chancellor Award. The school’s dean, Steve Coll, laughably justified honoring Ifill for “her unflinching pursuit of the truth, healthy skepticism of those in power and her commitment to fairness.”
PBS's Ifill: GOPers Compete to Be 'Alarmist' After Terrorist Attacks
December 6th, 2015 11:25 PM
Appearing as a panel member on CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday, PBS host Gwen Ifill made a negative characterization of GOP presidential candidates' reactions to recent terrorist attacks as she declared that, "For Republicans, it's going to be a variation of what we've seen so far, which is, 'How can we be more alarmist than the last guy?'"
She then moved to take jabs at GOPers Chris Christie…
NPR, PBS Shamelessly Ignore 2015 Elections in 'Week in Politics'
November 7th, 2015 7:11 AM
National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service have attempted on Fridays to run a “Week in Politics” segment and PBS even has a long-standing show called Washington Week. But on Friday, all these programs discussed a “week” utterly without any analysis of the 2015 elections.
Try to imagine how the media would have covered it if the transgender “equal rights” initiative won in Houston…
PBS’s Washington Week Goes to Bat for Hillary Over E-Mail Scandal
August 16th, 2015 9:56 AM
On Friday’s Washington Week, PBS’s Gwen Ifill and her two panelists, Washington Post reporter Karen Tumulty and CNBC’s John Harwood, did their best in trying to defend Hillary Clinton from the ongoing controversy surrounding her use of a private e-mail server while Secretary of State.
