From Great Orators to Gobbledygook

June 19th, 2024 1:28 PM

Once in America – and in some parts of the world – we were gifted by great orators, men and women who could by the power and content of their words inspire, motivate and sometimes unify their nations. Today, we have politicians who mumble, slur their words, repeat themselves and in other ways make no sense. They neither inspire, nor unite. I don’t just mean President Biden and Vice President…

Look Out! Doocy, Rosen, Wegmann Torch WH Over Gas Prices, Inflation

July 19th, 2022 12:01 PM

During Monday’s White House press briefing (which was the first in six days due to President Biden’s Middle East trip), White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and National Economic Council (NEC) member Jared Bernstein would have emerged unscathed if it weren’t for tough questions from Peter Doocy, James Rosen, and Philip Wegmann about gas prices, inflation, and the Vice President…

After over a year of Democrats and their allies in the liberal media repeatedly demanding trillions of taxpayer dollars be spent on COVID relief and expanding unemployment benefits, on Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle discovered people were deciding to rely on government checks rather than return to work.

Biden Adviser to MSNBC’s Ruhle: ‘Thank You for Your Advocacy’

January 15th, 2021 5:11 PM

In the midst of MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle helping sell Joe Biden’s proposed massive $2 trillion COVID relief package, one of the President-Elect’s economic advisers, Jared Bernstein, took time to thank the compliant host for her “help” and “advocacy.” Ruhle happily took the “compliment” and promised to continue being a Democratic spokesperson.

Left Attacks Economist Art Laffer as 'Kook,' 'Destructive' Force

June 20th, 2019 5:29 PM
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over Laffer’s award ceremony,…

MSNBC’s Bernstein (Purposely?) Confuses Budget Deficit with National

April 17th, 2014 10:35 AM
MSNBC contributor Jared Bernstein pulled off a deft sleight-of-hand on Tuesday’s PoliticsNation. It started after host Al Sharpton played a clip of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) calling for fiscal responsibility: “If Washington is serious about helping working families or serious about getting families out of work back to work, then it needs to get serious about our national debt. How do we do it?…

MSNBC’s Witt Has Cozy, One-Sided Min. Wage Discussion with Former Bi

December 10th, 2013 5:47 PM
It’s typical of MSNBC weekend anchor Alex Witt to invite guests on her show who only reinforce her opinions, and that is exactly what happened on Sunday’s Weekends with Alex Witt. For a discussion of Democratic efforts to increase the minimum wage, Witt brought on frequent contributor Jared Bernstein, Vice President Joe Biden’s former chief economist.  But that’s not all he is. Witt added…

August 16th, 2013 2:34 PM
MSNBC host Alex Wagner appeared to tie Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to ObamaCare opposition and libertarianism on Wednesday’s Now, with liberal guests Jared Bernstein and Mark Potok taking part in the anti-conservative argument. Wagner suggested that ObamaCare “extremism would seem to be of a piece with this radicalized rhetoric” that influenced the terrorist Tsarnaev. Bernstein, a former…

At Politico, Untagged Former Biden Adviser Bernstein Fails to Make Cas

August 12th, 2013 9:56 PM
An August 6 opinion column at the Politico labeled co-authors Jared Bernstein and Paul Van de Water as "senior fellows at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities." CBPP, that oxymoron known as a "leftist think tank," went unlabeled. The Politico also must have thought that Bernstein's background as the Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joseph Biden from 2009 to 2011 was…

MSNBC Panel Pines for Ongoing Christie-Paul Feud: '2016 Republican Clo

July 31st, 2013 4:49 PM
Earlier this afternoon, my NewsBusters colleague Kyle Drennen highlighted the Today show’s effort to hype the recent feud between Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Unsurprisingly, the folks at MSNBC were even more eager to blow the dispute out of proportion – and to predict a nasty fight between Republicans in 2016. Now host Alex Wagner kicked off a gleeful Wednesday…

July 31st, 2013 9:34 AM
MSNBC contributor Joy Reid continued her daily assault on Republicans Tuesday on Martin Bashir, comparing Republicans to chain smokers and blasting the GOP for its resistance to President Obama’s economic agenda. Reid argued that offering Republicans tax cuts is “like offering a chain smoker a cigarette,” pushing the same anti-GOP rhetoric she’s known for on the Lean Forward network. [Video…
