CNN Panel Gives Opinions About Why Opinion Shows Are Bad
April 19th, 2018 12:30 AM
In a jaw-dropping display that was one part a lack of self-awareness and another part hypocrisy, Wednesday’s prime-time Anderson Cooper 360 featured a panel of CNN analysts sharing their opinions about opinion shows like Hannity on Fox News. Their opinions varied but were largely against the mixing of opinion and news. And that was their opinion on the news of the day. The hypocrisy was so thick…
Anti-Trump Washington Post Writer Tosses Cold Water on Impeachment
July 15th, 2017 12:19 PM
Trump Russia! Trump Russia! Trump Russia! 24/7 coverage by the mainstream media. Investigations! Impeachment must be right around the corner! Must have it! Gotta have it! If not, we could lose our liberal minds!!!
WashPost Continues Baseless Russian Surveillance Speculation on Trump
May 12th, 2017 4:15 PM
The Washington Post just couldn't let it go. After going full absurd with their speculation on May 10 that a Russian photographer in the Oval Office could have planted a recording device, they doubled down in their absurdity with yet more derangement on the same topic the following day. This time it was their national correspondent Philip Bump who volunteered to make a laughingstock of himself.…
History! WashPost Tweaks Trump by Pairing 'Fox News' with 'Mussolini'
July 24th, 2016 8:09 PM
Political reporter Philip Bump of The Washington Post just had to dip into the yellowed pages of media history so he could post this headline on Saturday: “In 1927, Fox News Service filmed Benito Mussolini telling immigrants to ‘make America great’: Every word of that is true.”
WashPost 'Fact-Checks' Trump's Obama Economy Charts: Facts Win, 9-0
June 4th, 2016 9:03 PM
Philip Bump and the Washington Post have apparently had a couple of pretty bad days. The Post had to endure having to cover, and cover for, an absolutely awful jobs report released Friday morning. That news made their beloved Dear Leader, who had just celebrated the allegedly wonderful economic accomplishments seen during his presidency on Wednesday, look quite foolish. Never fear: By Paragraph 4…
WashPost to Pastor: How Would You Treat A Demonically-Possessed Cruz?
April 28th, 2016 8:30 PM
The Washington Post's Philip Bump followed the Huffington Post's example on Thursday in semi-seriously pursuing whether Ted Cruz is, in fact, "Lucifer in the flesh," as former House Speaker John Boehner recently put it. But instead of turning to a Satanist, the journalist consulted with a pastor/exorcist, even though he admitted that "of course there was no truth" to the Republican's jab at the…
WashPost Reporter Slammed for Challenging Sanders' $27 Donation Claim
April 19th, 2016 6:28 PM
For several months, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has claimed that he has not taken money from Wall Street firms or superPACs. Instead, the Vermont senator has stated he has received millions of donations that average $27 each, which was considered a testament to his grassroots support.
However, Washington Post reporter Philip Bump challenged that figure on Monday as being…
WaPo Writer Quickly Uses Brussels Attacks as Platform to Slam Trump
March 22nd, 2016 12:54 PM
The terror bombings in Brussels occured at about 3:00 AM EDT. Therefore Washington Post writer Philip Bump had only about a couple of hours after he woke up today to use these acts of terrorism as a platform to rapidly type up an article about his real obsession in this matter, Donald Trump, when it was posted at 9:25 AM EDT. You will search his story in vain for any expression of sympathy for…
Hillary Gaffe: Close Any School Not 'Doing a Better Than Average Job'
December 28th, 2015 8:08 PM
According to NewsBusters' own Blonde Gator, Hillary Clinton has, in the 8-1/2 months since she declared her candidacy, committed 51 gaffes and goofs. That's an average rate of six per month. Imagine how many there would be if Mrs. Clinton genuinely campaigned among the people instead of among preselected groupies.
One of her latest gaffes, which occurred last week at an elementary school in Iowa…
Wash Post's Bump: My Doctor Trumps Hillary's in Assessing Her Health
October 24th, 2015 2:32 PM
A mini-war broke out yesterday between the Washington Post's Philip Bump, who would apparently prefer to keep discussions of Hillary Clinton's health off the table, and Matt Drudge. As would be expected, Drudge won in a rout, while Bump continues to pretend that he didn't.
Bump, in his disingenuous Friday morning entry at the Post's all too appropriately named "The Fix" blog, told readers that…
WashPost's Anti-GOP Amtrak Harangue Also Chock Full of Falsehoods
May 18th, 2015 8:56 PM
It's bad enough, as Bryan Ballas at NewsBusters noted on May 16, that the Washington Post's Philip Bump dishonestly used last week's Amtrak tragedy to rip Republican members of Congress for somehow being responsible for the (theoretically) for-profit entity's "constant struggle" for funding.
As Sean Davis at the Federalist explained, Amtrak has really had no funding struggles. Bump had to make…
WashPost: Blame GOP Districts for Amtrak Funding Struggle
May 16th, 2015 7:02 AM
With at least seven dead and hundreds more injured in Tuesday’s Amtrak crash, many in the nation have paused for a moment to lament and pray for the dead and wounded. The same cannot be said for Philip Bump of the Washington Post, who rushed on Wednesday to note “House Republicans had planned to spend Wednesday marking up a transportation spending bill that included steep cuts to the budget for…
'Where to Begin?' Reporters Can't Stand Cruz Pushback on Climate Panic
March 27th, 2015 6:22 PM
Ted Cruz really knows how to put liberal teeth on edge. See this Washington Post headline: “Cruz compares climate change activists to ‘flat-Earthers.’ Where to begin?”
Post reporter Philip Bump took it upon himself to try and rebut Cruz point by point, saying “there’s not much Cruz got right here.”
WashPost's Bump Lamely Denies Kitzhaber-Christie Double Standard
February 14th, 2015 2:05 AM
Late Friday afternoon, roughly two hours ("shortly after noon" Pacific Time) after the press release announcing Oregon Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber's resignation effective next Wednesday, Philip Bump at the Washington Post's "The Fix" blog tried to explain away the national press's nearly complete failure to cover Kitzhaber's mounting ethical and now potentially criminal problems for nearly…
