Flashback: Back When Beto O’Rourke Was a Media Star

October 22nd, 2022 12:20 PM

Four years ago, Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke enjoyed a starring role in the liberal media’s coverage of the 2018 midterm elections. This year, Beto’s trying again, taking on Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but on TV news he’s gone from a rock star to the invisible man.


FLASHBACK: ABC Cheered Cuba as ‘One of the Freest Nations on Earth’

October 15th, 2022 12:15 PM

One of the more distasteful habits of liberal journalists has always been the tendency to flatter and fawn over brutal dictators. Reporters, who are supposed to speak truth to power, often fail when it comes to charismatic communists. That’s exactly what happened when ABC's Barbara Walters interviewed Fidel Castro almost 19 years ago.


FLASHBACK: Obsessed Media Devoted 96 Minutes to Todd Akin in 3 Days

October 8th, 2022 12:15 PM

The networks found their 2022 October Surprise, a Republican candidate to pounce on and work to destroy the GOP’s chances in the midterms. In less than a week, ABC, CBS and NBC have devoted over 27 minutes to the Herschel Walker story and whether the Georgia Republican senatorial candidate paid for an abortion in 2009. 


Journalists Love to Politicize Hurricanes, Trash GOP Response

October 1st, 2022 1:30 PM

This week, the residents of Florida endured the wrath of Hurricane Ian moving up through the state. At this time, the damage isn’t totally known, but certainly looks very worrying. In this case, the governor of Florida is Ron DeSantis, a man running in a contentious 2022 midterm election, as well as being a possible 2024 presidential contender.


FLASHBACK: Unlike Today’s Late Night Hacks, Carson Zinged Biden

September 24th, 2022 12:15 PM

It was 35 years ago this September that Joe Biden’s first of three presidential campaigns was embroiled in a plagiarism scandal, one that would torpedo the bid in controversy. While journalists and late night hosts in 2022 don’t seem interested in mocking now-President Biden, it’s worth remembering that Johnny Carson had no problem joking about the Democrat in 1987. 


CNN Founder Couldn't Fathom Why People Hated North Korean Dictator

September 17th, 2022 12:25 PM

Given the collapse of CNN+, the jettisoning of anchors like Brian Stelter, it’s clear that CNN itself is the middle of an identity crisis. It’s not the first time the network has gone through cringe-inducing moments. It was 17 years ago this coming Monday that CNN founder Ted Turner embarrassed himself by insisting that despotic North Koran dictator Kim Jong Il “didn’t look evil.”


FLASHBACK: Karine Jean-Pierre on Trump ‘Defecating on Women’

September 10th, 2022 12:31 PM

Joe Biden’s Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, this week tried to spin away the fact that she was an election denier, insisting that Donald Trump wasn’t elected President, that Brian Kemp wasn’t elected governor in Georgia. A look back at Jean-Pierre’s time on MSNBC shows a tendency to lash out with vulgar attacks on Republicans. On October 21, 2017, Jean-Pierre, then a spokeswoman for the…


FLASHBACK: Obama Super Fan Gushed Over 'Reflective' President

September 3rd, 2022 12:15 PM

As of Saturday, Joe Biden has gone 203 days without giving a sit-down interview to a journalist. What’s even more incredible about this gap is that, when he does them, the President is almost always greeted with softballs. In that way, he’s no…


FLASHBACK: Lauer’s ‘Kiss’ Obsession With Gore a Little Weirder Now

August 27th, 2022 12:15 PM

Given what we now know about Matt Lauer and his creepy office with an automatic door lock, his  August 21, 2000 Today interview with Al Gore looks weirder in retrospect. It was 22 years ago this week that the now-disgraced ex-NBC host obsessed over “the kiss” between the then-Vice President and his then-wife Tipper Gore at the 2000 Democratic National Convention: “You really planted…


Flashback: Colbert STILL Wasn’t Over ‘Slaughterhouse’ Election Night

August 20th, 2022 12:50 PM

Stephen Colbert never really got over election night 2016. The “comedian” performed a live show on the night of the Clinton vs. Trump presidential election where he very publicly melted down as Hillary Clinton lost. Four years ago this week, he still hadn’t recovered. Being interviewed for the August 13, 2018 TimesTalk, the Late Show host recounted that he didn’t even prepare for a Trump win…


Flashback to When MSNBC Hated 'Odious' and 'Toxic' Liz Cheney

August 13th, 2022 11:13 AM

Now that journalists see Liz Cheney as a heroic Joan of Arc, willing to be burned at the political stake, it’s good to sometimes remind everyone of the seething hatred many in the liberal media had for the daughter of Dick Cheney. One such example is the July 17, 2013 edition of MSNBC’s All In. 


FLASHBACK: CBS Exposed Danger of Border Crossings... From Canada

August 6th, 2022 12:23 PM

The Biden presidency has seen month after month of record-breaking border crossings. From July of 2021 through June of 2022 there were 2,361,553 border crossings. But during that time, just 146 minutes of coverage on the network evening newscasts. In June, just a scant 15 minutes. Only eight in May.


Vile, GOP-Hating Hollywood Shows Richard Nixon Farting, Showering

July 30th, 2022 11:05 AM

The vile new TV series Gaslight has mercifully ended. The show, centered  around Richard Nixon and the Watergate burglary, went out in gross fashion recently. Even considering how Hollywood hates Republicans, the Starz series went way beyond, finding it necessary to feature Nixon farting, showering, and a shot of his bare behind. 


FLASHBACK: Nets Mentioned Trump’s Low Polls Almost 2X as Much as Biden

July 23rd, 2022 12:46 PM

This week saw Joe Biden’s cratering poll numbers fall even lower. On Wednesday, four polls came out and the results are bleak. Reuters: 36 percent. Politico: 38 percent. Rasmussen: 39 percent. Economist/YouGuv: 40 percent. Unsurprisingly, the networks skipped coverage of the latest terrible news for the President.
