FLASHBACK: MSNBC Proclaims Obama Is ‘Sort of God’
Given how the mainstream media ping pongs back and forth from loving presidents to loathing them, depending if they are Democrats or Republicans, it takes a lot to shock us. But it’s been 12 years today since an MSNBC analyst declared Barack Obama “sort of God.”
FLASHBACK: Vile Martin Bashir Said Someone Should 'S-H-I-T' on Palin
This week, “journalist” Martin Bashir came under new scrutiny for decades-old sketchy actions when the BBC revealed he faked bank statements in order to secure an interview in 1995 with Princess Diana. This is the same Bashir who, on November 15, 2013, in a vulgar, hateful attack on Sarah Palin, he suggested someone “s-h-i-t” in the Republican’s mouth.
FLASHBACK: Star Boseman Told Grads That Your ‘Purpose’ Comes From God
It’s been less than nine months since the world lost Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman after he passed away from colon cancer. With all the negativity and anger coming out of Hollywood, it’s a good time to look back at a mega movie star whose whole life demonstrated positivity.
FLASHBACK: Want PROOF Late Night ‘Comics’ Are in the Tank for Biden?
Want proof that the late night “comedy” hosts are just Democratic hacks? Let’s do a flashback to four years ago today, on May 8, 2017. MRC Research Director Rich Noyes reported on a new study counting the late night jokes for the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency. The results won’t surprise you. The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University found a whopping 1,060…
Oh, NOW the Lefty ‘View’ Hosts Find GOP’s Jenner a Threat
Four years ago, The View host hyped a possible Caitlyn Jenner presidential run. Now the liberal hosts see Jenner as a threat to a powerful Democratic governor. Liberal co-host Joy Behar last Friday denounced the reality TV star as an inexperienced Trump stooge. Discussing Jenner’s entry into the California gubernatorial recall race, Joy Behar fumed at the Republican threat to Gavin…
Ethics Flashback: Remember When King Went Yachting With the Obamas?
Ethics. Objectivity. These things are not high priorities for CBS. One continuing example of that is Gayle King, a Democratic donor and cheerleader for her preferred political party. Four years ago this week that fact came into view, yet again. It turns out that King had been vacationing with the Obamas.
Someone Tell 2021 MSNBC About 2013 Conservative-Sounding Joe on ID Law
The hosts and journalist on MSNBC are now going out of their way to eviscerate Georgia for its new voter security law. That’s a little awkward if anyone remembers that one of the biggest names at the network — Joe Scarborough — previously mocked media “lapdogs” for pushing Barack Obama’s flimsy “voter suppression” claims.
Hack FLASHBACK! Sam Bee Groveled to Hillary: ‘Should Have Been You!'
This week, late night “comedian” Samantha Bee said the loud part quiet and admitted that she has, and will for the next four years, pull her punches on Joe Biden. One doesn’t have to go far in history to find out just how much of a hack Bee truly is. In April of 2017, four years ago this week, the host appeared at the “Women in the World” conference. Introducing Hillary Clinton, Bee apologized…
Remember CBS’s OTHER Attempts to Take Down Powerful GOPers? We Do!
This week, an attempt by CBS’s 60 Minutes to destroy Ron DeSantis blew up as more details emerged over just how shoddy the network’s reporting was. Without evidence, 60 Minutes tried to suggest the Florida Republican Governor operated a pay to play scheme with a supermarket chain on vaccine distribution.
MSNBC’s New Host Slimed American Sniper's 'Racist' 'Killing Sprees'
MSNBC this week just gave a daytime hosting slot to a journalist who once slimed the late Chris Kyle, the real American Sniper, as a “racist” fond of “killing sprees” while serving in Iraq. Ayman Mohyeldin Reports debuted on Monday. According to Mediaite, the “rebrand” reflects the network’s move to “the journalism from correspondents and experts who provide analysis and a deeper understanding…
FLASHBACK: Those Times the Liberal Media Winked at or CHEERED Violence
In the wake of the horrific spa shootings in Atlanta, liberal journalists and celebrities have immediately jumped to blaming Republicans for the attacks, citing provocative language. Yet, over the last four years,…
Ha! Williams Claimed He's Been ‘Cleansed’ of Opinion; Only Facts Left
Brian Williams appears to be one of those people who doesn’t listen to himself when he talks. How else to describe the reasons behind why the truth-challenged journalist says the things he does? Case in point: It was eight years ago this week that Williams appeared on Alec Baldwin’s then radio show to declare himself “cleansed of political opinions.” Only facts remain, apparently.
Brian Stelter’s Love of Censoring Goes Further Back Than You Know
The last year has seen an explosion of what has become known as “cancel culture” and an attempt to bury conservative viewpoints and any dissent from what is considered the acceptable viewpoint. But it’s in no way new. In fact, it was seven years ago this week that CNN’s Brian Stelter openly lobbied for squashing debate.
Why Are Post, NY Times Obits Nicer to Terrorists Than Conservatives?
It’s amazing how nuanced obituaries can be for figures that liberal media types appreciate. The portrait is always complicated. But less so when it’s a conservative. Conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh passed away this week and The New York Times slammed him with an obit about “hate,” “mistrust” and grievances.” The online version featured a sub-headline sliming him as “pushing talk radio to…
