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).
New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger’s “news analysis” on the font page basically took Iran’s side in the fraught geopolitical confrontation over the recent attacks on oil fields in Saudi Arabia, against U.S. President Trump and his “tirades and untruths.” The online headline suggested Trump could be lying about the Iranian threat: “Trump’s Challenge: Can His Word on Iran Be Trusted?” Sanger used Trump’s exaggerations and fibs in his partisan speeches to suggest his word can’t be trusted on Iran (meanwhile, the Times has a history of whitewashing the mendacity of the Iranian regime).
The same networks that banded together to bully pro-life states earlier this year after they passed sweeping legislation to protect the life of unborn children, spent Wednesday evening whining about President Trump threatening to revoke California’s self-prescribed emissions standards in favor of a national standard.
The liberal bastion of Los Angeles hasn’t had a Republican mayor in office since 2001. Yet, according to Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti, and the silence from NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, the city’s exploding homelessness problem was getting worse due to “conservative cuts to programs.”
Ever wonder why hubris late-night hosts fail to put their money where their mouth is and run for public office? After all, they believe they possess more intelligence than the large swath of the country who voted for President Trump. Alas, Stephen Colbert will likely never grace the world running for any official position. However, he did offer up some advice to 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday’s The Late Show.
Despite the fact that Lewandowski refused to answer a lion’s share of the questioning and squabbled with a few House Democrats on the Oversight Committee, the A-block panel on Tuesday’s Hardball somehow thought the proceedings were a wildly successful exercise for impeachment and shaming those not in the Resistance.
During a conversation on the Trump administration’s impact on the judicial branch Tuesday night, two CNN prime time hosts expressed disappointment about the administration’s progress in transforming the judiciary and slammed Christian conservatives for supporting President Trump in spite of his personal moral failings.
NBC and its affiliate networks have amped their climate alarmist coverage in the run-up to the United Nations Climate Action Summit to be held in New York later this month. Not to be outdone, Telemundo has weighed in. Not only does Telemundo correspondent Vannesa Hauc close her report with a bit of fear-mongering, but watch as anchor Felicidad Aveleyra bookends the report with a call to action:
Journalists simply can’t get enough of Greta Thunberg, the radical 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who wants people to stop flying in order to save the planet. MSNBC hosts on Wednesday bashed their own kids as not living up to the great climate hero.
While CBS This Morning and ABC’s Good Morning America both devoted full reports on Monday to the arrest of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck on drug charges following two recent overdose deaths at his Los Angeles home, NBC’s Today show was remarkably silent on the major political news.
Comedian Chelsea Handler loves being browbeaten about her white privilege by woke millennial college students, apparently. On The View Wednesday, she admitted that in her new Netflix documentary about white privilege, she visited a liberal college campus where black students “took her to task” her about her own privilege. Handler said she even took sexual harassment and racial sensitivity classes, which “everyone” should be taking, she said.
Wednesday on The View, the panel roundly criticized former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. As Democrats aggressively grilled Lewandowski, he refused to answer several questions and even slammed the media at one point. View co-host Joy Behar raged against both Lewandowski and Brett Kavanaugh’s temperament during their respective hearings as worse than “murderers and pimps.”
MSNBC commentator Elie Mystal is pretty proud of how much he hates the President, and apparently anyone who lives in one of his properties. So much so, that he boasted on Twitter that he fantasizes driving his car into a Trump condominium lobby.
