Congresista Díaz-Balart DESTRUYE editorial desdeñoso del Miami Herald
July 20th, 2021 1:16 PM
Por alguna extraña razón, le tomó un mes y medio al Miami Herald publicar la candente respuesta del congresista Mario Díaz-Balart al editorial titulado, “Es vergonzoso que congresistas republicanos de promuevan teorías conspirativas”, el cual plantea que los latinos que escuchan radio AM conservadora son “una audiencia fácil de manipular”; y quedó enterrado en la sección de “Cartas…
Spanish Nets Bury Comey Hearing, Focus on Machado
September 23rd, 2016 7:15 AM
Bias in the media is not just reflected in what is reported, but also through that which goes unreported. Yesterday, we found our most recent example of such biases. On Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey came before the House Judiciary Committee and was questioned regarding the manner in which the agency handled its investigation of Hillary Clinton's private server scandal. But the…
Ronan Farrow Hosts In-Depth Report on 'Bronies
March 18th, 2014 8:48 PM
Edward Murrow apparently didn't have the intestinal fortitude to tackle the subject of "Bronies." However, the winner of the Cronkite Award for Excellence in Exploration and Journalism about five minutes after his debut on MSNBC, Ronan Farrow, dared to investigate from deep inside the world of Bronies. Forget a missing Malaysian airliner, phony Obamacare numbers, or…
Some Additional Comment Experimenting
August 13th, 2012 11:02 PM
Tonight, I'm trying out a slightly modified Disqus look for the site. What do you think?
There are a few differences including the fonts. It is now easier to see discussions taking place in other NB comment threads by clicking the "Discussion" tab in the comments below. One other addition: the comments now live update as they are made.
Share Bar Problems: Solved
July 21st, 2012 12:33 PM
Several NewsBusters readers have been reporting problems with the new social media sharing bar that appears at the side of the screen.
We have removed the feature in our site code. It will take a little while for the bar to go away, however. Apparently the issue was with people running lower-resolution displays on their computers.

You've probably noticed, but we've made the official transition over to our new, Disqus-powered comments on our blog postings. Please use this thread to ask any questions you still have about the switchover. I will be keeping an eye on it today and answering your inquiries.

Open Thread: Comment System Changeover
July 3rd, 2012 9:02 AM
By now if you've been reading NB over the past few days, you've noticed the long-promised addition of Disqus comments. Now that we've had a couple of days to let you try it out, I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to ask questions about the setup here in this posting. I will answer them in this thread.
Ex-Democrat Artur Davis Defends GOP on Fast & Furious Probe, Voter ID
June 20th, 2012 4:07 PM
Yesterday former Rep. Artur Davis -- who served in Congress as a Democrat but recently became a Republican out of frustration with the Obama administration -- was a featured guest of the Heritage Foundation's weekly blogger briefing.
Davis briefly discussed the similarities between the upcoming election and the election of 1980. He claimed that Ronald Reagan had to make the American…
Important Admin Note: Comment System Change Coming Soon
April 25th, 2012 3:53 PM
As regular readers of NB know, the site's notoriety and audience has grown over time. This has been a blessing in terms of influence but also a curse to our servers. To keep things faster, we are going to be moving soon to a new commenting system which will make for some important differences when it comes to commenting on NB.
One of the things this will mean is no more need to be logged…
Shrum's Paula Jones Memory Loss: If Cain Didn't Do Anything, 'Why In T
October 31st, 2011 8:43 PM
Be kind to Bob Shrum. Perhaps the 68-year old is suffering from the not-so-early-onset of some dread memory-loss syndrome.
How else to explain his suggestion on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening that the National Restaurant Association's settlement for a relatively modest sum, in today's litigious world, proves that Herman Cain must have done something wrong? …

You may not be aware of this but NewsBusters is unique in the blogosphere. Not only do we provide the most in-depth media analysis and have the deepest media archive out there, we also are owned by a non-profit organization.
That provides us with the ability to accept tax-deductible gifts but it also means that we are dependent on them.
Author: 'Great Leap Forward' Death Toll Was 45 Million; Nick Kristof i
September 19th, 2010 11:10 AM
A UK Independent item about an unreleased book by historian Frank Dikötter made me think about New York Times columnist NIcholas Kristof. Readers will see why shortly. Amazon says that Dikötter's "Mao's Great Famine: The History of China's Most Devastating Catastrophe, 1958-1962" will be released on September 28. The Independent's Arifa Akbar relays Dikötter's core conclusion that…
