Revenge of the Lapdogs

December 17th, 2020 5:04 PM

For four years, we heard that President Donald Trump is a threat to freedom of the press. The Washington Post signaled its own faux bravery by adopting the slogan "Democracy Dies in Darkness" at the top of its masthead.

Column: Media Make Mountain of 'Dr. Jill' Molehill

December 16th, 2020 5:55 AM

The pro-Biden media is obsessing over the tiniest kerfuffle imaginable: Jill Biden wanting to be called "Dr. Jill Biden," based on her Doctor of Education degree (not an M.D.). The elites exploded in fury when The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by Joseph Epstein, who professed this honorific “sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic.” These people aren't…

NBC Rushes to Defend Jill Biden, After Years of Cheap Shots at Melania

December 14th, 2020 2:50 PM

On Monday, NBC’s Today show did the bidding of the incoming Biden administration by wailing over a Wall Street Journal op-ed critical of soon-to-be First Lady Jill Biden for use of her academic title “Doctor.” Rather than report real news, the broadcast wasted over three minutes of air time denouncing the “sexist” article. This is the same network that just a few months ago…

While NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt refused to press Jill Biden on accusations she cheated on her first husband with then-Senator Joe Biden during his Thursday interview, he did awkwardly ask her whether or not she got nervous whenever her husband was addressing the public.

Nets PROTECT Jill Biden From Tough Q's, Even Cheating Scandal

August 19th, 2020 10:30 AM

Wednesday morning, all three networks displayed their allegiance to the Democrat party by continuing to completely ignore a huge scandal that broke yesterday about how Jill and Joe Biden met.

On Tuesday night, CBS was the only broadcast network to offer analysis beyond a brief summation of Dr. Jill Biden’s address to the all-virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention. That said, they didn’t waste it, hailing her remarks as full of “empathy” and “trying to draw a contrast to the Trump family” with Americans “so hungry” for hope and resiliency.

August 19th, 2020 12:21 AM

Night two of the Democratic National Convention was yet another snooze fest that CNN let dominate their prime time line up.

CBS Dreams About ‘Unconventional’ First Lady Jill Biden, the Prankster

August 9th, 2020 12:06 PM

Letting her brush aside the allegations of unwanted touching against her husband and questions of “where is Hunter,” CBS correspondent Rita Braver conducted a gooey puff piece for CBS Sunday Morning featuring Dr. Jill Biden (Ph.D.). Between excited fawning over the idea of continuing to teach and playing pranks around the White House, it was obvious that Braver desperately wanted…
