TV News: Obsessed by Russia, But No Time for Mueller’s Controversies

August 21st, 2018 8:55 AM
By far, the biggest news story of the Trump presidency has been the Russia investigation. As of August 15, the three broadcast network evening newscasts have devoted a combined 1,854 minutes to the probe, or nearly one-fifth (19.6%) of all of their Trump news. Yet virtually none of that airtime (just 62 minutes, or 3.3%) has been spent scrutinizing Robert Mueller’s investigation — a big shift…

What Changed? The Same Media Who Excuse Bob Mueller Abused Ken Starr

May 23rd, 2018 12:32 PM
Today’s journalists routinely assert that it is “extreme,” “dangerous,” and possibly even criminal for the White House – or anyone else, for that matter – to criticize an investigation into the President. But twenty years ago, Independent Counsel Ken Starr was savaged by the same liberal media during his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton. At that time, Starr was harangued as a “…

March 29th, 2018 5:05 PM

A Tale of Two Scandals: Whitewater vs. Russia

July 26th, 2017 10:35 AM
The liberal media’s message to Donald Trump is clear. Don’t even dare think about removing Robert Mueller from his position as Special Prosecutor.

NYT's 'Miserable' Objectivity Fail: Ken Starr Is Inspector Javert

May 25th, 2016 7:50 PM
New York Times Hillary-beat reporter Amy Chozick matter-of-factly compared Whitewater special prosecutor Ken Starr to Inspector Javert, the fanatical pursuer of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, while blaming him for bringing “a new intensity to partisan warfare” in his prosecution of Bill Clinton, in Wednesday’s “Starr, Who Tried to Bury Clinton, Now Praises Him.” Chozick even suggested Starr's…

May 24th, 2016 10:05 PM
Former president Jimmy Carter gave a lecture to journalists about racist Republicans and Trump supporters, and New York Times religion reporter Laurie Goodstein lapped it up religiously: “Seeing Resurgence of Racism, Carter Plans Conference to Promote Unity.” The text box to Tuesday’s story paraphrased Carter’s words of wisdom: “Saying the country has ‘reawakened’ in a bitter political climate.

June 9th, 2014 9:05 AM
Veteran ABC journalist Diane Sawyer has interviewed Hillary Clinton for a one-hour special that airs Monday night.

December 20th, 2009 1:23 PM
An upcoming book, “The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr," deals with Ken Starr's investigation of the Clinton scandals of Whitewater and lying under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
