NewsBusters Podcast: The Jackie Flap and the Hurricane Trap
It was a week of Biden-Harris gaffes -- and the media energetically ignoring Biden-Harris gaffes. Vice President Harris mysteriously said we had a great relationship with North (and not South) Korea. President Biden held a hunger event where he wanted to be bipartisan, so he asked on camera where Rep. Jackie Walorski was -- when she died weeks ago in a car crash.
NewsBusters Podcast: 'Fact Checkers' or DNC 'Flying Monkeys'?
Stephen Kruiser of PJ Media said it was "beyond ludicrous" for liberal media outlets to have "fact checkers" when they sound like "flying monkeys" for the Democrats (like The Wizard of Oz.)

CBS journalist Scott Pelley was as firm as jelly in his 60 Minutes interview with President Biden. His "questions" were often like "what did you think?" and "I wonder why you think that is." Kevin Tober joins the show to analyze all of the sappy passages that sound like the White House wrote them.

NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Biden's Nasty Speech, Hunter's Out of Reach
President Biden gave a nasty primetime speech on how 'MAGA Republicans' are a threat to American democracy, and the media celebrated it as "reclaiming patriotism."

NewsBusters Podcast: Reagan Gets No Credit for USSR's End, Only Gorby
When they announced the death of the last dictator of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, the liberal media elite broke out the valentines, giving Gorbachev all the credit for tearing down the Iron Curtain of communism. Ronald Reagan dared Gorbachev to tear down the wall, and Gorbachev is painted as a “towering international hero” for just letting it happen. Media liberals can't give Reagan…
NB Podcast: Lefty Media Desperate to Make Fetch Happen on Abortion
The liberal media are desperate to motivate their base to turn out and vote in November to stem a red wave from sweeping the country from House and Senate races down to the state and local levels.

NewsBusters Podcast: Brian Stelter Is Reliably Canceled
CNN followed through on its threats to dismiss some fervently biased personalities. Brian Stelter''s "brand" was too toxically anti-Trump?
