September 19th, 2019 4:29 PM
On Monday, PolitiFact editor Angie Drobnic Holan wrote an article expressing her frustration that Sen. Ted Cruz would dare to mock her website on Twitter as “a wholly-owned subsidary of the DNC.” She insisted PolitiFact is an "independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit newsroom that fact-checks Democrats and Republicans alike" that was "unaffected by agenda or biases." That's not what a look at the…
Bozell & Graham Column: Tolerance for Elizabeth Warren's Fake News
November 28th, 2017 10:10 PM
The network news divisions boast about how much they care about the truth, and rage against President Trump when he calls them makers of “fake news.” But when it comes to the politicians they adore, especially those they wish would run for president, the truth takes a back seat. Exhibit A right now is Elizabeth Warren, who falsely claimed in professional directories to be descended from Cherokee…

June 17th, 2017 1:57 PM
As the Media Research Center's Brent Bozell noted Thursday morning, a Wednesday evening New York Times editorial which made it into Thursday's print edition outrageously perpetuated "a long-debunked leftist conspiracy theory about Gov. Sarah Palin inciting the (2011 Gabby) Giffords shooting," even though the paper's "own news reporters declared just yesterday that there was no evidence linking…

May 26th, 2015 11:09 PM
The latest scorecard from the American Conservative Union is out, and the voters of Virginia might want to file a complaint about truth in advertising with the press corps. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner have routinely been portrayed in news reports as “moderates” and “centrists.” But after two years in the Senate, Tim Kaine has a perfect zero on the conservative scale. Mark Warner has a…

November 12th, 2014 12:22 PM
Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, just released his latest book “The Stranger: Barack Obama In the White House” chronicling the Democrat’s first six years as president.

November 6th, 2014 1:12 PM
Barack Obama's reaction to Tuesday's big election loss for the Democrats was mocked at the Country Music Awards by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. If their act looks somewhat familiar, they were the same duo who mocked ObamaCare last year at the same show.

September 29th, 2014 12:02 PM
Politico has noticed a lack of women in statewide office in Iowa for over 20 years. So who is promoted as the possible savior of this situation? Not the obvious choice.

July 31st, 2014 9:25 PM
Judging from reports carried by the three mainstream networks' news programs and most of the low-rated cable news channels, it seems that the Fox News Channel and conservative Republicans are totally consumed by the concept of impeaching Democratic President Barack Obama.
However, a Lexis-Nexis search of transcripts from the July programs on FNC and MSNBC indicated that for every mention of…
NPR Asks and Answers: 'Is The Tea Party Finished? Yes
May 23rd, 2014 10:16 PM
On Friday, NPR political director Ron Elving asked in an online article “Is The Tea Party Finished?” Then he answered: “Yes, if you insist on calling it the Tea Party. Because that phrase implies the phenomenon is some sort of organized unit in the usual sense. And the Tea Party never really was one.” You might be able to read some delight between the lines, since the Tea Party wanted to defund…
Contemptible: AP Story Again Keeps Lois Lerner's Name Out of Headline
May 8th, 2014 2:07 PM
Once again, as it did a month ago in two separate stories, the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, left the name of Lois Lerner, the former IRS official who ran its section on tax-exempt organizations, out of its headline and opening paragraph. This time, for good measure, AP reporter Stephen Ohlemacher didn't reveal Lerner's name until Paragraph 3.
Before getting to Ohlemacher'…

April 9th, 2014 9:06 AM
Liberal Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank did his best to spin the extramarital affair of Congressman Vance McAllister (R-La.) by declaring “Republicans make their ‘war on women’ worse.” In a piece published April 8, Milbank professed that the McAllister affair was “Not the way Republican leaders had planned to observe Equal Pay Day” before laying into the GOP’s supposed problems with…
Top Ky. Democrat Compares Beating McConnell to Liberating Europe From
January 17th, 2014 1:21 PM
In the past two election cycles, the media have contorted themselves in spine-splitting fashion to feign collective outrage whenever a Republican candidate for anything anywhere - no matter how little-known or inconsequential - made an untoward off-the-cuff remark.
In 2012, this aided the White House in being able to fabricate a nonexistent "Republican War on Women."
With this in mind, will…
