MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough appeared Tuesday morning over on NBC’s Today to promote his new book (or whomever wrote it for him) about Harry Truman and, with help from co-host Savannah Guthrie, denounced Republicans as “post-democratic” in their reaction to the 2020 election results and compared Truman to President-Elect Joe Biden.
Arrogant CNN ‘Hosts’ LIE to Viewers About Trump, Coronavirus
March 16th, 2020 2:18 AM
In a horrendous lie on CNN Sunday afternoon first flagged by the Trump campaign, CNN hosts Ana Cabrera and Boris Sanchez displayed a gross arrogance, immaturity, and snarkiness in repeatedly lying by telling viewers on Saturday and Sunday that President Trump initially chalked up the coronavirus to having been “a hoax.” Fact-checker after fact-checker (and even liberal ones) decried this…
Can We Trust Experts?
July 25th, 2018 5:47 PM
Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers predicted that if Donald Trump were elected, there would be a protracted recession within 18 months. Heeding its experts, a month before the election, The Washington Post ran an editorial with the headline “A President Trump Could Destroy The World Economy.” Steve Rattner, a Democratic financier and former head of the National Economic Council, warned, “If…
The Media Refuse to Thank Harry Truman for Ending WWII
May 28th, 2016 8:29 PM
I am here to write this column because of Harry Truman. My late Dad, a decided Taft-Goldwater- Reagan conservative who died several years ago a few weeks shy of 90, often enough impressed on me that my very existence, not to mention his own, was owed to the man from Missouri who, in August of 1945, was the still-new 33rd President of the United States. He was forever grateful to the Democrat Mr.…

MSNBC breaking news host and ex-NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was allowed out on MSNBC’s airwaves early Friday afternoon to discuss President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima and in the course of that, Williams threw some shade in the direction of the U.S. military and then-President Harry Truman by complaining that “we’re the only nation to have used them in anger” against the horrifying Axis…
WashPost's John Kelly: Naming Airport for Reagan Like Renaming Atlanta
May 21st, 2014 1:05 PM
The Washington Post's John Kelly rarely gets political in his Metro section columns, but when he does, they can be real doozies. So it's not all that surprising that Kelly found it irresistible to attack the late President Ronald Reagan in today's column in which he opposed a new bipartisan proposal by Missouri's U.S. senators Claire McCaskill (D) and Roy Blunt (R) to rename the federal city's…
Yahoo's Shapiro Sings Praises of 'Obama's History-Defying Decision to
September 2nd, 2013 6:45 PM
Walter Shapiro's column at Yahoo yesterday might as well be called, "My Hero -- xoxo."
Its actual headline is, "Obama's history-defying decision to seek Congressional approval on Syria." As Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds noted a short time ago: "You can read this entire article about Obama going to Congress over Syria without seeing any mention that Bush went to Congress over Iraq and…
NBC Sets Up Obama to Run Against 'Do-Nothing Congress,' Lumps in
December 10th, 2011 11:19 AM
Friday's NBC Nightly News ran a report touting the prospect that President Obama could portray the current Congress as a "Do-Nothing Congress," based primarily on the number of bills passed rather than delving into the issues addressed, even making a comparison with the 1995 Republican Congress as if it could be similarly described as unproductive.
Correspondent Kelly O'Donnell's piece put…
WaPo's Nakamura Fails to Note Hoffa's Violent Rhetoric at Obama Labor
September 6th, 2011 10:12 AM
The Washington Post treated President Obama's Detroit Labor Day rally to page A3 coverage, with a 19-paragraph September 6 story by staffer David Nakamura.
Controversial Teamsters president James P. Hoffa -- son of the late Jimmy Hoffa -- was quoted, but not the infamous "take these sons of bitches out" line that has been reported elsewhere.
Indeed, Nakamura aimed to paint the partisanship…
Matthews' Shameless Smear: Rush Wants to End Integration of Schools an
August 10th, 2011 8:02 PM
It's going to be a long, hot campaign . . . Yesterday, Politico reported that the Obama strategy is to "destroy" or "kill" his perceived chief 2012 rival, Mitt Romney. The Obamaoids are no doubt counting on close collaboration with their friends in the MSM.
Today we were treated to the kind of shameless smear that the left surely has in store. On his MSNBC show this evening, Chris Matthews…

Matthews Mocks Mention of Tightening Polls
October 29th, 2008 8:20 AM
If Obama wins on Tuesday night, Chris Matthews's mocking this morning of the notion that the polls are tightening will be soon forgotten. But if McCain pulls off the upset, Matthews's smirking triumphalism will take its place in the halls of journalistic hubris near the famous photo of Harry Truman holding up the Dewey Defeats Truman front page.Just before Matthews came on, Andrea Mitchell ended…
Frank Rich's Palin Paranoia
October 5th, 2008 2:02 PM
A beautiful woman, at once a scheming, ambitious right-wing ideologue, and the powerful, evil forces behind her, plot to seize the presidency from the man—foolish enough to have made her his running-mate—who may be concealing just how seriously sick he is, both physically and mentally!As the stuff of straight-to-video filmmaking, not bad, perhaps. But as the theory of an ostensibly serious…
