These are posts slated for distribution via the Media Research Center’s NB Daily e-mail compilation of liberal media bias in national media coverage of politics and policy. The newsletter will be down for maintenance between July 25 through August 5, but you can read the same content on this page. If you're looking for posts from January 2015 or before, check the archive on MRC.org for the BiasAlert posts (previous name for NB Daily).
With former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer set to cut a rug on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, cue the Trump Derangement Syndrome from the liberal media. CNN media janitor Brian Stelter perfectly encapsulated the media’s over the top reaction during a Thursday afternoon appearance on Right Now with Brianna Keilar, where he called for “outrage and backlash” to the story.
CBS This Morning on Thursday promoted the New York Times attempt to blame everything wrong in American on slavery. Talking to Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, co-host Gayle King praised the effort: “The thing that’s so amazing about this that makes me so proud, you can look at just about anything happening in the world today and tie it to slavery.”
There was plenty to pick through on Wednesday’s Hardball, such as topics covered here about how PBS NewsHour’s Yamiche Alcindor implied she was upset with God Bless the USA airing at Trump rallies and the President for not pushing gun control. But there were also meltdowns from Alcindor and her fellow panelists about Trump’s feud with Denmark that included the words “disloyal,” “grenades,” and more accusations of racism and sexism.
Some activists on the left, like to claim it’s easier to buy a gun in America than it is to buy cold medicine. One journalist found how wrong that was and actually published her investigation, despite it not fitting into the media's narrative. Business Insider’s Hayley Peterson wanted to know how difficult it would be for her to buy a gun at a Walmart in Virginia, after the superstore chain faced pressure from Democrats to stop selling firearms.
Hours after President Trump blasted NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander for being “the most biased reporter” in the press corps, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd predictably rushed to his colleague’s defense during MSNBC’s MTP Daily Wednesday afternoon: “There is nothing better for a journalist than to get attacked by Donald Trump.”
On Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and more than 20 conservative leaders released a statement rejecting Facebook’s “insulting” response to specific examples of bias. They declared, “No conservative leader or organization should accept this as a legitimate response to the undeniable issues we have raised.” The Media Research Center (MRC) also leads a group called the Free Speech Alliance of almost 60 organizations dedicated to combating the censorship of conservatives online.
When a member of the “squad” gets called out for their anti-Semitic, anti-American statements, the liberal media quickly line up to defend the Democrat congresswomen. Yet when a Republican congressman was attacked for his military service by a progressive media commentator this week, it was promptly ignored by that same liberal media.
Rob Reiner has lost it. After wasting the last three years championing the Russian collusion delusion on Twitter and cable TV the film director is down to desperately pleading Democrats to turn on the “Impeachment Hoses” against the “moronic” “childish” “racist” president who is “out of his fucking mind.”
It’s not been a good week for the New York Times. The beleaguered newspaper on Thursday suffered another embarrassment as one of the paper’s editors was exposed for tweeting vile, anti-Semitic, racist attacks on Jews and Indians. As reported by Breitbart and Twitchy, Tom Wright-Piersanti, the senior staff editor at the Times has a history of hateful remarks. The editor has been quickly deleting old tweets, including this one from 2010 in which he admits to being an anti-Semite:
There has been lots of talk in the media recently about loyalty and on her Wednesday MSNBC Live show, Hallie Jackson got into an argument with Log Cabin Republicans national spokesperson Charles Moran over the organization's decision to endorse President Trump for re-election and one of the board members, Jennifer Horn's, decision to resign in protest.
On Tuesday's Erin Burnett Outfront on CNN, fill-in host Kate Bolduan twice employed the lame "if it saves one life" argument that's typically not used on other issues as she made Republican guest Rob Astorino debate both her and liberal CNN contributor Aisha Moodie-Mills on gun control. Instead of having a discussion on the merits of whether gun control would help matters, Bolduan was more fixated on President Donald Trump backing off his earlier calls for more background checks.
Things took a bizarre turn roughly ten minutes into Wednesday’s Hardball and, surprisingly, it wasn’t MSNBC host Chris Matthews. After discussing President Donald Trump’s feud with Denmark, the topic turned to Trump’s proposal to invite Russia back into the G-7 (making it the G-8) again when far-left PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor appeared to take issue with Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA being played at Trump rallies.
