CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter briefly addressed Joe Biden's harsh, finger-pointing lecture at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. He played a clip where Biden says he never discussed business with his son. Stelter wasn't buying it: "Well, that seems very, very hard to believe. Obviously, a father's going to talk to his son about his business." That was as skeptical as it would get. Stelter moved on with an all-liberal panel, asking them softball questions with echoes of an internal Democrat tavern talk. 



One of the revelations from the character assassination attempt of Justice Brett Kavanaugh by The New York Times was that Leland Keyser, an alleged witness to the allegations of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was viciously pressured by Blasey Ford’s allies to back up the claims unless she wanted to be discredited with her past history of drug abuse. Well, one of the reporters behind the hit piece did the work for Team Blasey Ford in an appearance on CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” and slimed Keyser’s rebuttal.



Lord knows, the New York Times serves as a reliable media arm of the DNC. But let the newspaper stray from that mission for a millisecond, and the liberal establishment will come down on it like a ton of bricks. On Joy Reid's MSNBC show today, Maria Teresa Kumar of "Voto Latino" was furious at the Times in general, and its Ken Vogel in particular, for reporting the story of how Joe Biden intervened to have fired the prosecutor who was investigating a company that was paying Biden's son Hunter. At one point, Kumar made a telling slip of the tongue, saying, "the Democrats -- excuse me, the American people -- expect [the Times] to be talking to them, and giving them the analysis, and not equivocating [sic, meant "equating"] things because they would like to have access."



It was not quite a year ago that the riveting hearing took place pitting the dueling testimonies of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford. New York Times reporter Robin Pogrebin parlayed her slanted reporting on the case and her Yale connection into a book deal with fellow reporter Kate Kelly. Both reporters contributed slanted anti-Kavanaugh reporting during the controversy, and retained the same tone for the book, The Education of Brett KavanaughAn Investigation.



Despite that there were still few facts known and a whole lot of speculation about the allegations made by the anonymous and so-called “Trump whistleblower,” ABC and NBC were more than willing to throw their weight behind the effort. Their Sunday coverage seemed to come at the behest of former Vice President Joe Biden, who on Saturday yelled at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and demanded the press “ask the right question” about President Trump.



Shortly after noon on Saturday at the Polk County Steak Fry in Iowa, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked a mild, Brit Hume-esque question to Joe Biden and drew a hostile response, as if Doocy was yelling like Jim Acosta. His primary answer -- that he's never spoken to Hunter Biden about his overseas business dealings -- should sound preposterous to reporters, especially when they wouldn't accept that answer from a Trump son or daughter. But the other reporters didn't follow up. 



It has long been known that liberals hold the television show "The West Wing" in a high esteem that feeds into their fantasies, especially in times where cold reality has not exactly gone as they (and creator Aaron Sorkin) would have hoped.  And this fantasy will only be intensified since this is the twentieth anniversary of the show's premiere. Another reason for liberals to fantasize ever more deeply in the parallel liberal world of "The West Wing" is obviously due to the the one they consider to be the intruder in the real world West Wing, President Donald Trump.

 

The September 20 Vanity Fair article by Sonya Saraiya, "How The West Wing Briefly Made Democrats Into TV Winners," reveals how liberals continue looking upon that show as a source of solace over the years and especially now in the midst of the Trumpocalypse.



Weighing in on the whistle-blower scandal that the media have treated as the apocalypse over the past few days, Real Time host Bill Maher noted that “impeachment is in the news.” While he acknowledged that “a lot of people were saying today, ‘oh, we’ve got him,’” a disheartened Maher said “I wouldn’t get my hopes up” that the whistle-blower scandal will bring President Trump down before begging his panel to convince him “that this is going to be different.”



The New York Times’ Saturday edition brought an update to the world-wide “climate strike” by schoolchildren from the paper’s apocalyptic-sounding international climate reporter Somini Sengupta. It's a huge two-page story with photos from around the world: “Young People Around the World Take It to the Streets.” The text box: “Anxious about the future and doing something about it.” Doing something about it apparently means skipping class.Sengupta wrote the introductory text for an even more panicky story in Saturday’s edition, “‘This Is Our Terrifying World,” featuring photographic profiles of six young climate activists worldwide.



Media Research Center Director for Media Analysis Tim Graham appeared at The Paley Center on Tuesday and sparred with liberal CNN host Brian Stelter about media bias in the age of Trump. Graham shot down Stelter’s argument about “hate movements” on the right, saying of the need to hold journalists accountable:  “I want to say to Brian very seriously, I don't hate journalists. I don't want to be part of a hate movement. Okay? I minored in journalism, and that's but yes,  I have a site called NewsBusters. But journalism's important. Journalism's important enough that we need to hold it accountable.” 



The Washington Post is perennially sneering at conservatives, as you can see from this Friday story: "Greetings from Mike Pence’s parallel universe. It’s Constitution Day at the Heritage Foundation." Whose parallel universe? Post political writer Ben Terris expects that everyone lives in the world of liberal impressions that The Washington Post is creating.



CNN, the network that likes to brag about being all about “facts first,” doesn’t always have a great track record when it comes to reality. Fourteen years ago this week, on September 19, 2005, the network’s founder appeared on his own network to credulously insist that despotic dictator Kim Jong-il “didn't look" evil. Ted Turner proclaimed, “...He didn’t look too much different than most other people.”



College wrestling season is only weeks away, and on Friday ESPN intentionally withheld key information in its celebration of the sport's first transgender wrestler. Non-binary ESPN W writer Katie Barnes featured Mackenzie "Mack" Beggs, the girl who wanted to compete in boys' wrestling, but was forced against her will to win her last 92 matches and two state high school girls' championships in Texas. Beggs is now a member of the Life University men's wrestling team that will start its season in a few weeks, and Barnes is riding this story for all it's worth, skipping over some crucial facts.



At the start of the week, The New York Times was caught in an embarrassing error as it tried to throw a new sexual-harassment allegation at Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh. PolitiFact did not assign any "Truth-o-Meter" punishments to the Times. Instead, since they are sympathetic liberal journalists, the site's John Kruzel critiqued the conservatives at PJ Media instead. The headline was "No, the New York Times has not admitted to peddling ‘fake news’ about most recent Kavanaugh claim."



If the mainstream media wants to find out why fewer and fewer people take them seriously, a September 18 article in the Washington Post would be towards the top of the piles of evidence. The very title of the story by Hannah Natanson reflects both the extreme shallowness along with the obvious bias to produce the incredibly cringeworthy "Frederick Douglass photos smashed stereotypes. Could Elizabeth Warren selfies do the same?"
