Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi wrote a piece on Wednesday that sounded congratulatory.

Maddow Fawns Over Biden's COVID Relief Bill: 'A Big F-ing Deal'
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow unabashedly conceded that after four years of a Republican president, "I'm getting cattier and pettier with each passing day."

ReidOut Guest: GOP Is 'Cocktail' of 'Fascism' and 'White Supremacy'
Friday's ReidOut served up another dose of nonsensical conspiracy theories as MSNBC host Joy Reid and frequent cable news hack Dean Obeidallah grossly speculated about a hypothetical retirement of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a chance to move Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron (R) into the Senate and accused every single person who works in and votes…
RADICAL Reid Goads Dem to Eliminate the Filibuster, Raise Minimum Wage
On Monday evening, MSNBC’s Joy Reid devoted a significant amount of time on her show The ReidOut to bash Republicans for their reluctance to increase both the national debt and the federal minimum wage.

DEFUND NPR: Liberal Gates Foundation Gave $4,000,000 to NPR in 2020

WashPost Touts 'Reality-Grounded' Briefings Under Biden, Skips Scandal
Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty wrote a piece for Tuesday’s paper headlined “The return of White House press briefings.” It’s not like the briefings disappeared in 2020.

NPR Touts Biden Spokesman Won't Allow 'A Platform for Right-Wing Spin'
On Thursday’s Morning Edition, National Public Radio touted their Jen Psaki interview with the headline “Biden's Incoming Press Secretary: Briefings Won't Be A Platform For Right-Wing Spin.” As usual, NPR thinks “right-wing spin” is the opposite of their reportage….which is “objective.” Not left-wing spin!

The headline in the paper was "Waters are getting a bit nippy in White House pool."
