PBS Pair RIPS Republican Party as Fractured and Flattened by Trump
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty and New York Times columnist David Brooks took turns dismissing Kevin McCarthy's "Commitment to America" platform for the midterm elections. The GOP can't agree on anything, and as Tumulty put it, "Donald Trump keeps creeping into the news." As if Team Biden and their media enablers have nothing to do with that…
Column: Liberal Media Cheer Cheney’s Quixotic Presidential Campaign
Liz Cheney lost her Wyoming primary election by 37 points. But the concession speech didn't so much concede as announce a new crusade, a quixotic campaign to drag down Donald Trump in any way possible before the 2024 election. When she lost, CNN analyst Nia-Malika Henderson accurately…
Liberal PBS Pundit Compares His Hero Liz Cheney to... Obi-Wan Kenobi

‘I Was Wrong’: Krugman Kicks Himself for Awful Inflation Takes
The New York Times opinion section actually published a shocking project where eight of their columnists admitted they were wrong about either economics, tech, foreign affairs or politics. At the top of the list was none other than “transitory” inflation gaslighter Paul Krugman.
PBS Anchor Says GOP Tried to 'Make Hay' of Child Rape, Not Democrats

Brooks Doesn't Know Why Australian-Style Gun Control is Controversial
New York Times columnist David Brooks is, in theory, supposed to be the conservative counterweight to Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart when the two join PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff every Friday to recap the week’s news, but in reality Brooks mostly ends up repeating liberal talking points. A case in point was Friday’s episode where he wondered…
'Balanced' PBS SMEARS Parents' Rights Movement as QAnon Kook Fringe
At the beginning of the PBS NewsHour is a subtle graphic with these words: “HONEST BALANCED TRUSTED.” There was nothing honest and nothing balanced on Friday night as our taxpayer-funded "newscast" smeared at least half the country who believe it’s inappropriate to teach kindergarteners sex-ed lessons as Q-Anon conspiracy kooks. It puts the BS in PBS…
Hunter Who? PBS Condemns Saudi Investment in Kushner
PBS NewsHour has finally discovered allegations of corrupt behavior in the president’s family. No, not Hunter Biden, but former President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. On Friday’s show, host Judy Woodruff, New York Times columnist David Brooks, and Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart all condemned Kushner’s “shameless” behavior both during the Trump…
Capehart, Brooks: Republicans Put Jackson 'Through Hell' To Get on Fox

Capehart Accuses GOP of 'Playing Games' Amid Putin WMD Threats
Math and logic were in short supply on the Friday edition of PBS NewsHour as Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart accused 31 Republican senators “playing games” with aid for Ukraine because they voted against a spending bill in which less than one percent of the money was for Ukrainian aid.
Capehart on PBS: Ketanji Is 'Not Some Radical,' She's 'Mainstream'!
Naturally, the PBS NewsHour was delighted with President Biden's nomination of radical Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court on Friday night. David Brooks put her in the mainstream….of the Democrats. That might be correct, but the Democrats are far to the left! Jonathan Capehart then misquoted Brooks as saying she's "in the mainstream" of America.
Capehart: Unnamed SCOTUS Pick Will Be 'More Brilliant' Than the Rest
On Friday's PBS NewsHour, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart was angry enough at his fellow panelist David Brooks that he claimed that President Biden's still-unknown Supreme Court nominee would probably be "more brilliant than the folks who have come in before her" because she had to overcome all the racism that defines America.
David Brooks: The GOP 'Has Slid Down the Toilet' on Voting Rights
On the last Friday night Week in Politics panel of 2021, the PBS NewsHour once again chose the topic that Democrats want to talk about right now: Voting rules. Once again, the Republicans are so horrible that New York Times columnist David Brooks -- the alleged moderate Republican-leaning regular of this group -- said the GOP is "a party that has slid down the toilet."…
PBS Won't Discuss a David Brooks Column When It WHACKS the Left
The PBS NewsHour will spotlight New York Times columns by their panelist David Brooks when they love them -- like his promotional interview with President Biden, or his liberal-pleasing column "The G.O.P. Is Getting Even Worse: Trumpians are having a venomous panic attack." This did not happen this week, when Brooks wrote a column titled "The Self-Isolation of the American…
