President Trump's first budget proposed to end funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, something we at the MRC have advocated throughout our history. It's not fair that conservative taxpayers should have to subsidize propaganda programs that insult their political philosophy and assault their favorite politicians.
On Wednesday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews took his latest cheapshot at Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.), ruling that “[h]is unpleasantness...is immeasurable” after hearing a clip of Cruz criticizing Democrats for whining about Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) being silenced on the Senate floor. In contrast, Matthews showcased the utmost affection for Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (Va.) and inquired about his well-being since Kaine and Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election.
Things became awkward during CNN’s The Future of Obamacare debate Tuesday night, as Senator Bernie Sanders appeared to become a little irritated with a small business owner who admitted to him that she was not providing health care for her employees. Texas salon chain owner La Ronda Hunter explained to the senator that because of Obamacare’s mandates she could not expand her business and could not pay for their care. Sanders’ reaction was tantamount to him saying ‘too bad so sad.’
Univision-owned Deadspin tried taking a swipe last night at U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and failed miserably. Hilarity ensued, Twitter lit up, and the fallout extended well into the night. Once you stop laughing, you realize that there are legitimate questions that remain unasked - and some that merit an answer.
Univision-owned and far-left sports site Deadspin took a dive into the gutter on Tuesday night, telling Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) to “go eat shit” on Twitter following a post about Cruz playing pick-up basketball games with Senate colleagues.
After the Big Three networks spent days forwarding accusations that Senator Jeff Sessions was a bigot, the time for his first confirmation hearing had finally arrived. The hearing was interrupted some nine times by roughly 25 people. This caught the attention of Senator Ted Cruz who made it his mission to set the record straight on his colleague’s history of combating racism and dared the liberal media to report the truth. ABC, CBS, and NBC all failed Cruz’s challenge Tuesday evening.
It seems like the line between journalists and politicians is always growing finer. According to the Texas Tribune, ABC News’ Chief Political Analyst Matthew Dowd is ”thinking” about running for Texas Senate as an Independent challenger to Ted Cruz. He told the Tribune that he has been approached by both Republicans and Democrats to run.
Along with the unpredictable ladies from The View, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews can almost be guaranteed to make daily appearances on the pages of NewsBusters. Whether it’s making inappropriate statements or coming up with asinine names for conservatives, Matthews has provided decades of entertainment for those on the right.
From defending flag burning to justifying anti-Trump violence, the largely liberal panel at ABC’s The View frequently proved this year that the only “views” that were acceptable came from the radical left. We’ve broken down the worst of the worst liberal outbursts from the 2016 season in the cringeworthy video below.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of how the election of a President Hillary Clinton could dramatically change the U.S. Supreme Court, co-host Chris Cuomo fretted that it was "really frightening" to hear Republican Senator Ted Cruz talk about obstructing Clinton's judicial nominees and allowing the number of Supreme Court justices to remain at eight. Cuomo: "I think you got Ted Cruz laying some really frightening groundwork, saying, 'You know, eight is fine on the Court. Eight is fine.'"
After the smoke cleared in the voting for the ‘Damn Those Conservatives to Hell Award’ at Media Research Center’s 2016 Gala, frequent Notable Quotables subject and MSNBC host Chris Matthews emerged as the winner for a vicious smear after the New Hampshire primary on “troll-like” Ted Cruz for living “below the level of human life.”
Washington, D.C. — Late Thursday night, a boisterous crowd of 800 conservatives and guests packed the National Building Museum for the Media Research Center’s 2016 Gala featuring the DisHonors Awards and after awarding the best of the worst in four categories, Melissa Harris-Perry emerged as the overall winner for the most outrageous and pathetic quote by a liberal journalist. Harris-Perry earned the distinction after winning the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis Award earlier in the evening.
