Christine Blasey Ford provided what they call “no evidence” to back up her 2018 claim that Brett Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh fiercely denied the charge. Her "witnesses" didn't see it her way. But CBS and ABC and NPR have provided sappy publicity for her new book – which provides no new evidence of her story.

Interviewers sympathetically asked why she…

Republican Rep. Nancy Mace joined Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna on Friday’s edition of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher where she tussled with the pair over her take on her Sunday interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. Mace accused Stephanopoulos of “rape shaming” her for supporting Donald Trump, which she had no patience for considering he is “a guy who covered for the Clintons.”

Mace…

Georgia Judge Scott McAfee ruled on Friday that Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis can remain on the Trump-Election RICO case provided she sack Nathan Wade. MSNBC’s Morning Joe reacted to the news by breathing a sigh of relief, accusing the Trump team of hypocrisy, and labeling him a “fascist.”

After reading from McAfee’s decision that said in part “the appearance of impropriety remains…

Why do left-wing journalists want Joe Biden to come to the aid of Hamas terrorists? They accuse him of overseeing Israel's "genocide," and he's not supposed to be upset. On MSNBC, Jonathan Capehart accused President Biden to his face of "overseeing and actively arming a genocide" (as a Muslim radical said to The New York Times). No "fact checkers" jumped in to challenge Capehart's cockeyed…

George Stephanopoulos’ recent interview with U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) proves the extent to which the media, rather than reporting facts and allowing informed viewers to decide for themselves, have devolved into partisan Maoist apparatchiks bent on punishing dissent. There is no other explanation for Stephanopoulos’ disgusting attempts to shame Mace, a survivor of sexual assault, for her…

The top of the Wednesday New York Times offers quite a contrast in headlines: a whiny piece on how Donald Trump may be gaining because of America’s “collective amnesia,” next to a puff piece “White House Memo” on “Campaign Shifts Strategy to Let Biden Be Himself.”  As if he isn’t authentically fumbling and bumbling?

Reporter Jennifer Medina and Reid Epstein began their story “Passing…

In the wake of former President Donald Trump’s double-digit victory in the New Hampshire primary, there’s been a notable shift in broadcast TV’s coverage of the GOP nomination race. While Trump remains the center of attention (garnering more than five minutes of airtime for every one minute allotted Nikki Haley), and he’s still on the receiving end of mostly (89%) negative…

A contentious interview between George Stephanopoulos and Senator JD Vance (R-OH) ended in Vance’s microphone getting abruptly cut off, but not without Vance getting several uncontested shots in regarding the media’s obsessions with January 6th, the ongoing lawfare against former President Donald Trump, and the ongoing censorship collusion between Big Tech and the intelligence communities.…

Columnist E. Jean Carroll made the rounds Monday across the liberal media in a victory lap following her legal win against former President Trump in civil assault and defamation suits. And during a Monday appearance on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, she offered to spend some of the $83.3 million she was awarded on supporting women’s rights; such as “new shoes,” a “penthouse,” and a luxury…

If there was one thing that transformed Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski from mere critics of Donald Trump into savage antagonists, it was Trump's tweet back in 2017 saying that Mika and Joe had begged to be invited to his New Year's Eve party, but he said no, claiming that "Mika was bleeding badly from a facelift." The pair's vendetta against Trump has raged on ever since.

Joe and…

MSNBC analyst and weekend host Katie Phang was a guest on Wednesday's edition of the network's Deadline White House. Phang revealed that "I am friends with E. Jean Carroll, but it doesn't color my legal analysis." Of course not!

But Phang had the chutzpah to claim that Carroll—the woman who won a $5 million judgment from Donald Trump in her first defamation suit against him, and is…

On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough repeatedly claimed that, judging by the big caucus results in Iowa, Republicans there "like candidates who have raped women," as it was ruled by a New York judge in the E. Jean Carroll civil suit in New York.

Back in 2018, in a previous attack on Trump, Scarborough turned heads by asking "How did Democrats split the difference on Bill Clinton when they…

Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews just turned 78, and when they let him loose on Morning Joe now, you can't help but think how much he resembles Joe Biden. He's bitterly anti-Trump, he rants and he rambles, and you have no idea when or where he's going to end his remarks.

But Mika Brzezinski enabled him on Tuesday, noting that polls of the Iowa voters showed that about two-thirds would…

Joe Scarborough: self-hating Southerner?

Scarborough -- originating from the "cracker counties" of the Florida panhandle -- sometimes likes to stress his Southern upbringing, and describe himself as a "simple country lawyer" who attended two southern state universities.

But the Morning Joe host has developed an ugly habit of mocking southern Republicans by putting on their…

​​​​​​Joe Scarborough is a master of false modesty. His typical shtick is to describe himself as "a simple country lawyer."

In a variation on that, last week we caught faux-humble Scarborough saying, "I'm not good at this politics thing."

But given the gaffe Scarborough committed on Wednesday's Morning Joe, perhaps Joe wasn't speaking with false modesty at all— but simply…

The 2024 presidential race has been going on for months, but the real kickoff is the first Republican presidential debate in Milwaukee. For most of these candidates, this will be the highest visibility they have achieved in this campaign. They can blame Donald Trump, and the Trump-obsessed media.

The four-indictment whirlwind around Trump – alongside a courtroom battle over an ancient…

Is the GOP campaign coverage in 2023 turning out a lot like 2015? Is Trump dominating the Republican race in the media? A new MRC evening-news study by Rich Noyes found that Trump's share of Republican media coverage is twice as big a share of the overall percentage as the last time the primary was open eight years ago.

Donald Trump swamps the field with 664 minutes. At this point in…

Joe Scarborough is so engrossed in attacking Donald Trump that he is even willing to dismiss Bill Clinton's sexual misconduct, and mock those who were offended by it.

On today's Morning Joe, in condemning evangelicals who continue to support Trump despite a federal judge finding a "substantial truth" in the jury's conclusion of a sexual assault, Scarborough said:

"My brothers…

When Joe Scarborough's reported $9-million-a-year Morning Joe gig comes to an end [not to mention wife Mika 'Know Your Value' Brzezinski's similar pay], perhaps Scarborough should give stand-up comedy a shot.

Because on Friday's Morning Joe, Scarborough got off an absolute rip-snorter of a belly-laugh-producing line. In bemoaning what some Republicans and news outlets have said in…

On Tuesday morning’s CNN News Central, anchor Rahel Solomon brought University of Miami professor of criminal law Scott Sundby on the show to discuss the selection process for “potential jurors” at the trial for former President Trump’s classified documents indictment. Despite Solomon’s disclaimer that the process was “not at the jury selection phase of any potential trial” yet, they engaged…
