It was “Green Day” on Amanpour & Co. Wednesday, with host Christiane Amanpour in London interviewing Green Party Deputy Leader Zack Polanski and Obama administration economic advisor Betsey Stevenson on the same show. The result was 20 minutes of environmental rabble-rousing against the Conservative Party in the U.K., followed by kissing up to the Biden administration in the U.S. over…

We’ve been subjected to years of lectures about how Republicans are a “threat to democracy,” but watching the post-debate reactions to the second GOP presidential debate at the Reagan Library made you wonder who exactly hates democracy. Like the first debate aftermath, journalists assert debates are pointless.

It wasn’t October yet – and about 14 weeks from the Iowa caucuses – and the…

On Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC went gaga and played state-run media over President Biden’s “historic visit” “standing shoulder to shoulder” with striking United Auto Workers (UAW), but ignored the fact that Biden’s visit to the picket line only lasted 12 minutes before he returned to Air Force One and set off to Silicon Valley for a far-…

Google’s artificial intelligence tool seems to have a mind of its own about who the popular 2024 presidential candidates are.

MRC Free Speech America researchers asked Google’s AI chatbot Bard to “Rank the 2024 presidential candidates” one week before the Republican presidential primary debates. The chatbot answered by completely ignoring Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Republican…

On Thursday night's edition of The ReidOut, MSNBC host Joy Reid invited Bishop William Barber of the "Poor People's Campaign" to lash out at Republicans for being anti-union while at the same time panicking that former President Donald Trump will win over the votes of the striking autoworkers in Michigan. 

"They are showing their colors. I am actually glad that this debate is happening…

If there's anything that Morning Joe utterly hates to do, it's saying something positive about Donald Trump. Well, at least since 2016, that is.

So what does it take to get the show to stray from its Trump-hating tradition? Simple: have Trump side with the union over management in a labor dispute.

And thus it was that, as we say in our NewsBusters rubric, there was "sudden…

During Wednesday’s edition of ABC’s The View, fill-in moderator Joy Behar led the rest of the liberal cast in a “game” of floating other possible Democratic candidates for president if President Joe Biden decided to get out of the race. Racist co-host Sunny Hostin put up her heartthrob, California Governor Gavin Newsom. But when pressed on his state’s rampant homelessness crisis, she argued…

MSNBC The 11th Hour guest host Ali Velshi, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, and presidential historian Michael Beschloss were all greatly distressed on Thursday as they reacted to the “weird” GOP primary debate from the night before that focused on policy differences between the candidates instead of obsession over Donald Trump and “the anti-democratic tendencies that have taken over …

As the opening round of the 2024 presidential campaign kicked off Wednesday night with the first Republican debate, Tuesday’s lead New York Times story was a 7,500-word investigative epic by Nicholas Confessore, Times reporter and MSNBC political analyst, on the highest polling Republican on the lectern that night.

The mission was clear from the headline: 2024 presidential candidate,…

Buckle up. The appalled shrieks of anger from the media will soon be heard. Why?

Here is this headline - just a sample one of many. The source, NBC News: 

GOP Oversight Chairman Comer vows to subpoena the Biden family 

Comer's promise follows a Republican-led investigation that has largely focused on Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings but shown no direct links to…

“It’s over” wailed MSNBC co-host Donny Deutsch on Friday’s Morning Joe as he declared the show would be finished if Donald Trump ended up winning the 2024 election. This breakdown occurred while Deutsch and host Joe Scarborough were decrying the assault on democracy liberals imagined Republicans were plotting.

Deutsch said that Trump, if he got into the White House again, would use the…

Another Biden family payment scandal meant another goose egg of coverage on public television’s flagship evening news program the PBS NewsHour.

On Wednesday, House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer released records detailing payments Biden family members have received $20 million from oligarchs in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. The revelations were predictably ignored by the “…

With President Biden still floundering in the polls and the poor economy weighing them down like an anchor, Monday’s CNN News Central lamented Biden was forced to travel the country to “convince Americans” that their eyes and bank accounts were lying to them. The network tried to do its part in attempting to downplay the economic hurt average Americans who weren’t rich D.C./New York…

“The Secret History of Gun Rights: How Lawmakers Armed the N.R.A.,” the prominently displayed 5,000-word lead story in Sunday’s New York Times, was the work of investigative reporter Mike McIntire, who spent the Obama years hassling the Tea Party and the GOP with hostile investigations before turning his attention to the National Rifle Association, the oldest civil rights group in America…

Joseph Vazquez | July 26th, 2023 11:44 AM

The Washington Post is either too blinded by ineptitude to realize how bad President Joe Biden’s economy really is or is just content making pathetic attempts to deceive readers. 

The Post economics reporter Jeff Stein wrote a ludicrous July 26 news item headlined, “As inflation falls, GOP may have to rethink attacks on Biden economy.”

Stein suggested that the “message” of…

PolitiFact waded into the controversy surrounding Florida’s new history standards by rating Vice President Kamala Harris “mostly true” for her statement that the state is teaching “enslaved people benefited from slavery.” To reach such a conclusion the trio of Sofia Bliss-Carrascosa, Louis Jacobson, and Amy Sherman had to tie themselves into a giant pretzel by simply downplaying evidence…

During the January 6 hearings, CNN and MSNBC would condemn Fox News in the harshest and most hyperbolic of ways if it chose to not cover the them live. However, when it came to Wednesday’s House Oversight hearing on two IRS whistleblowers alleging improper interference in the Hunter Biden investigation, the two networks did not cover the hearings live. Worse than that, the networks spent nine…

When not co-hosting The View on ABC, Ana Navarro doubles as a political commentator for CNN and on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, she responded to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s interview with Jake Tapper by dismissing him as a “vindictive, thin-skinned, awkward, bobblehead of a bad candidate.”

Host Alisyn Camerota wondered why Republicans are sticking with Donald Trump despite all his legal…

Joe Scarborough, who apparently thinks he's the working man's hero of Nantucket, came out in defense of January 6 rioters and alleged fake electors on Wednesday morning. This came because special counsel Jack Smith has sent a letter to Trump informing him that he is a target of the January 6th investigation. In addition, Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel (D) has charged 16 fake Trump 2020…
