January 22nd, 2022 12:15 PM

Twelve years ago this week, Massachusetts shocked the world as the liberal state elected a Republican Senator, ending then-President Barack Obama’s brief 60 vote majority. The media did not react well to the GOP win, railing about how it was “premeditated murder” and an affront to the cause of the sacred Ted Kennedy. And that was only one Senate win.

Last Year, Media Claimed Joe ‘Lincoln’ Biden Would ‘Hug,’ Heal Nation

January 20th, 2022 9:15 AM

Thursday marks the one year anniversary of Joe Biden’s inauguration. And while the Democratic president is deeply unpopular and dealing with several policy failures, journalists had high hopes on January 20, 2021. They compared the Democrat to Lincoln, called him our “papa-in-chief,” hailed the return of “facts and truth.” It’s quite the contrast to the actual results of the President who…

CBS Thought Questioning Reagan and Trump’s Mental Fitness Was Fine

January 15th, 2022 12:15 PM

Four years ago this week, CBS managed to question the mental fitness of two Republican presidents, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, in one show. Almost four years later, the same network would only gingerly, mildly bring up the topic with Joe Biden. On January 12, 2018, then-CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell pushed veteran CBS anchor Bob Schieffer on whether Trump had some…

January 8th, 2022 12:15 PM

This week saw the one year anniversary of a violent mob attacking Congress. On the night of the ugly riot, Alec Baldwin, who later in the year would shoot and kill a filmmaker on the set of a movie, viciously tweeted, “Put Ted Cruz in the stocks and throw rotten fruit and buckets of horse piss at him.

Happy New year, NewsBusters readers. It is now officially 2022 and big things are ahead for the country.

December 18th, 2021 12:15 PM

Christmas 2021 is just one week away. It's a time when millions of Christians prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and reflect on the nature of their faith. So it would be interesting if a network news show would talk about religion this time of the year. It just so happens that Al Roker brought up “sin” just three years ago today. But it's not what you think. This was about the…

It was five years ago this week, on November 25, 2016, that Cuba’s Fidel Castro died Rather than focus mostly on how repressive he had been, many outlets could not stop themselves from hailing the murderous dictator.

November 25th, 2021 11:00 AM

The holiday of Thanksgiving is under a yearly attack from liberals who find the holiday hateful and a “day of mourning.” But a newly reissued book on the history of the day finds it’s not the first time Thanksgiving has been under fire. Conservatives will find chapter 7 particularly interesting: It reminds readers of Franklin Roosevelt’s botched attempt to mess with the holiday.



Famous Journalist Mocked GOP Landslide as Toddler's 'Temper Tantrum'

November 20th, 2021 12:15 PM

A lot will happen between now and November 8, 2022. But currently, things are looking grim for the Democrats. One poll this week show a GOP congressional ballot advantage of 10 and another puts it at 13. How should we expect network journalists to react? Well, the past is always a good guide.

MSNBC FLASHBACK: My Job Is to Make Obama's Presidency a Success

November 13th, 2021 12:15 PM

Americans can be forgiven for suffering a collective whiplash over the last 13 years in how the liberal media views presidents. They desperately wanted Barack Obama to succeed and Donald Trump to fail. Now, they are attempting to rescue the floundering Joe Biden. Perhaps one of the best examples of working on the behalf of Obama came 13 years ago last month. Then-MSNBC host Chris Matthews came…

FLASHBACK: Nets Buried Historic Second Amendment Win at Supreme Court

November 6th, 2021 12:15 PM

This week, the Supreme Court heard arguments over a potential blockbuster Second Amendment case, one in which the conservative majority appeared poised to overturn New York (and other states) restrictions on who can get a concealed carry permit. But if that happens, don’t expect the network newscasts to celebrate this as a “historic” decision. Those only count at the Supreme Court when…


EXPOSED: Remember When Katie Couric Was Outed as an Abortion Radical?

October 30th, 2021 12:15 PM

In October, Katie Couric admitted that she hid awkward comments from an Ruth Bader Ginsburg interview in order to “protect” the late, far-left Supreme Court Justice. But this is by no means the first time Couric’s status in the corrupt media has been confirmed in public. Twenty four years ago, celebrity Whoopi Goldberg outed Couric as a fellow pro-abortion protester, blurting that the two had…


20 Years Ago: ABC News Prez Had ‘No Opinion’ on Pentagon Terror Attack

October 23rd, 2021 12:15 PM

Here’s a question that shouldn’t be hard for anyone: “[Was] the Pentagon a legitimate target?” But it wasn’t a simple one for then-ABC President David Westin exactly 20 years ago today. On October 23, 2001, at an event at Columbia University, Westin offered a sickening response to 9/11.
