As United Methodist Church Empties Out, PBS Embraces LGBTQ Takeover

May 19th, 2024 1:30 PM

The latest example of taxpayer-supported celebration of the gender alphabet came on Friday’s PBS NewsHour. Anchor Geoff Bennett set the scene of a Christian denomination in crisis. But after laying out the grim facts, Bennett didn’t grill his guest, Rev. Valerie Jackson, about the mass exodus from the denomination. He certainly didn’t invite an opposing religious conservative voice into the…

PBS Wrecks Texas for Abbott's Pardon: 'White Right-Wing Conservatives'

May 18th, 2024 5:27 PM

The PBS NewsHour on Friday questioned Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s pardon of “convicted killer Daniel Perry” as a sop to the white right. Host Geoff Bennett loaded his lead to tar Abbott’s decision right from the start. "Abbott had faced pressure to issue the pardon from white right-wing conservatives, including then FOX News host Tucker Carlson."


PBS 'News' Bias: Upside-Down Alito Flag Bigger Than Kavanaugh Assassin

May 18th, 2024 11:57 AM

On Friday’s PBS NewsHour, the Week in Review segment dove into the New York Times “scoop” that the flag flew upside down for a few days in January 2021 outside the home of Supreme Court justice Samuel Alito. This was Big News? Two years ago, when a man showed up outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house intending to assassinate him, the NewsHour didn’t find…

PBS Takes Pro-Hamas Line on Israel: 'Mass Expulsion' of Palestinians

May 17th, 2024 10:11 PM

Wednesday’s edition of the PBS NewsHour forwarded pro-Hamas historical talking points to paint Palestinians as endless victims of yet another war they launched against Israel, matching up with the network’s consistently slanted coverage of the current Israel-Hamas war. It’s been 76 years since Arab countries attacked the fledgling state of Israel en masse in 1948 to strangle the…

PBS NewsHour Touts Abortion as a Boon for Democrats as GOP Bumbles It

May 15th, 2024 7:51 PM

The PBS NewsHour on Monday attempted to bolster the struggling Biden re-election campaign by focusing on a purported Democratic issue, abortion, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in all 50 states. Reporter Laura Barron-Lopez presented Democrats on the move and Republicans on the defensive.


PBS Repeats Debunked Hamas-Published Child Casualty Statistics

May 15th, 2024 2:05 PM

PBS/CNN host Christiane Amanpour likes to say that journalists should “be truthful, not neutral,” but when she welcomed author Reza Aslan to Wednesday’s Amanpour and Company to promote his new children’s book on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, she could not be bothered to fact-check his debunked casualty estimates from Gaza.

NPR Loves Far-Left Tik-Tok Effort to Punish Celebs For SILENCE on Gaza

May 12th, 2024 10:10 PM

Chloe Veltman, a correspondent on National Public Radio’s “Culture Desk,” is still guarding the far-left ramparts of U.S. culture for NPR with Saturday’s “The Met Gala has fueled backlash against stars who are silent about the Gaza conflict.” She demonstrated, as if any more evidence was needed, the tax-supported network’s rigid adherence to a left-wing world view that offends at least half…

Ex-NPR Editor Uri Berliner Mocks New NPR CEO Skipping House Hearing

May 12th, 2024 6:06 AM

NPR whistleblower Uri Berliner, who penned a bombshell expose on the woke one-sidedness of the "public" radio network's news product, knocked new NPR CEO Katherine Maher for failing to show for Wednesday's House hearing on the leftist bias of her new employer. “Why isn’t she there? Is she the right person for the job at this time?” he asked.

NPR Hearing: Our NewsBusters Download for the Congressional Record

May 11th, 2024 6:26 PM

An opening statement to Congress is usually longer to read than the give minutes that witnesses are granted. So if you want to see the whole statement on National Public Radio bias that I offered the House for the Wednesday hearing, it's included here. 


PBS Mocks Non-Protesters: No Right to 'Convenient Path to the Library'

May 11th, 2024 12:22 PM

Tuesday’s PBS NewsHour actually brought on a critic of the pro-Hamas protesters currently infesting college campus quads across the country, which so far have gotten a nearly free ride from scrutiny (there’s certainly been little scrutiny of the pro-Biden groups funding them). New York Times columnist David French is no hard-core conservative, but his opinion that the “…


Capehart On Biden's Israel Critics: 'Haven't Been Paying Attention'

May 11th, 2024 10:00 AM

Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart told Friday’s PBS NewsHour that anyone who believes that President Joe Biden is playing politics by withholding aid from Israel hasn’t “been paying attention.” Unfortunately, for both Capehart and Biden, the latter’s previous comments about Israel and its enemies are resurfacing and they put that claim very much in doubt.

PBS: Trump's Wild Gestapo Remarks vs. Biden Faces 'Jaded Electorate'

May 9th, 2024 6:10 AM

The “Politics Monday” segment of the PBS NewsHour, as hosted by substitute anchor William Brangham, was spicier than usual. Brangham found “controversy” on Trump’s side (no surprise there) but President Biden eluded blame for his poor polling -- blame a “jaded electorate” instead. Brangham: "It's already shaping up to be a busy political week, as Republicans navigate the fallout from…

NewsBusters Podcast: A Fun Day on Capitol Hill Truth-Telling About NPR

May 8th, 2024 9:39 PM

The House Republicans on the Energy & Commerce Committee invited me to testify about allegations of bias at National Public Radio. How did it go? What was it like? Is there any hope that NPR will change its biased ways? Don't be wildly optimistic.


Here Are the Best & Worst Parts of the NPR Hearing with MRC’s Graham

May 8th, 2024 5:45 PM

On Wednesday, the Media Research Center’s NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham testified before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight & Investigations during a hearing on the decades-long liberal boondoggle that is National Public Radio (NPR). Not surprisingly, he came armed with examples of their virulent bias and hate for conservatives.
