August 28th, 2018 11:23 PM

Name That Party, NY Times: Charges for GOPer Collins v. Democrat Brown
August 9th, 2018 4:03 PM
Thursday’s New York Times showed itself all too eager to use new charges against Republican Rep. Chris Collins of New York to help Democrats.

The paper piled on with a story inside by Goldmacher…
Deluge: Arrest of GOP Rep Gets 18 Times the Coverage of Corrupt Dems
August 9th, 2018 12:26 PM
Following the arrest of Republican Congressman Chris Collins, the broadcast networks once again showcased their partisan double standard when it comes to corruption allegations against members of Congress.

GOP Rep's Arrest Gets 7x the Coverage of Entire Scandal for Dem
August 8th, 2018 9:14 PM
If you’re a politician with “D” at the end of your name, it grants you certain privileges from an all too friendly press.

As Trial Looms, NYT Bizarrely Leaves Out Sen. Menendez’s Democratic ID
September 5th, 2017 10:43 AM
New York Times reporter Nick Corasaniti’s initial 1,200-word story on the upcoming trial of Democratic Sen.

NYT Skips Convicted Democrat’s Party ID; GOPers Labeled Instantly
May 12th, 2017 2:11 PM
Name that party, New York Times edition. On Friday, reporter Matt Stevens covered the verdict in the trial former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown: “Ex-Congresswoman Is Guilty Of Operating a Fake Charity.” It would seem a juicy story of liberal hypocrisy and greed. Yet the Times initially failed to even mention that Brown is a Democrat, though it had every chance in the 571-word story to cite her…
Nets Ignore Former Dem Congresswoman Convicted of Corruption
May 12th, 2017 12:01 AM
If there was one thing the liberal media does with the greatest of ease, it would be pretending the corruption of Democrats doesn’t exist. That talent was on full display Thursday as the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored the conviction of former Florida Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown. “Corrine Brown has been found guilty on 18 fraud and tax evasion charges,” reported Fox News…
Congressional Black Corruption
July 13th, 2016 2:41 PM
If Black Lives Matter, then why have entrenched members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent more time enriching themselves than taking care of their neglected constituents? Too many social justice protesters are busy throwing shade, rocks, bottles, concrete blocks and vicious death threats at police officers of all colors trying to keep the peace.

Corrine Brown Boycotts Bibi, Recycles 2011 Press Release to Praise Him
March 6th, 2015 6:42 PM
In 2004, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry infamously stated, in connection with an Iraq War spending resolution, that "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it."
