April 23rd, 2019 1:46 PM
A CNN New Day panel painted Kamala Harris as the loser in last night's CNN town halls. Three CNN journalists criticized her for not offering "something bold," instead using the "let's have a conversation about that" dodge. Alisyn Camerota got in a zinger at the end, suggesting that if Harris wanted to have a conversation, a town hall just might have been the right place to do it. Ouch!

FLASHBACK: Media Blamed Rush Limbaugh, ‘Right-Wing’ for April Terror
April 20th, 2019 12:15 PM
The month of April saw some dark days for America. On April 19, 1995, it was the Oklahoma City Bombing. On April 15, 2013, it was the Boston marathon bombing. What do those two have in common? Liberal media outlets smeared conservatives as responsible for both. On the April 19, 2010 edition of Countdown, then-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann went on an unhinged rant, assigning Rush Limbaugh culpability…
Acosta: Trump ‘Has the World Record' for Pushing Politics After Attack
November 1st, 2017 3:55 PM
Whether he was joking or not, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta made a fool of himself on Wednesday afternoon, spreading fake news that President Trump “now has the world record for injecting politics into the aftermath of a terror attack” for suggesting changes to immigration policy after Tuesday’s Manhattan terror attack.

BLM Student on Cable Drama: ‘The Media Is Biased Against Us’
March 1st, 2017 5:19 AM
On a very special Black Lives Matter episode of Freeform’s Switched at Birth, the show switches its focus from its main white and Latino characters to feature the stories of 3 black students at University of Missouri – Kansas City. It's about as preachy, melodramatic, and self-important as you'd expect, but it really strains credulity with an unintentionally comedic lecture on media bias.

February 7th, 2017 5:07 PM
Appearing as a guest on Monday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman incorrectly claimed that there has only been one case of a foreign-born terrorist staging an attack in the United States when there have, in fact, been a significant number of cases.

January 29th, 2017 8:46 PM
It tends to be good advice to avoid automatically assigning negative or malicious intent, such as a desire to play "gotcha," when someone's actions, inaction, or statements might have simply arisen from breathtaking ignorance. But what if it appears to a combination of both traits? That seems to be the case with New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman's Saturday morning tweet. Haberman, whose…

December 15th, 2016 11:09 AM
The New York Times on Thursday attempted to soothe liberal readers about the upcoming film Patriot’s Day, a recounting of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

October 7th, 2016 4:25 PM
In a surprising move, Hollywood appears to have created an unabashedly pro-American, pro-law-enforcement film with Patriots Day. Director Peter Berg’s upcoming film focuses on the courage of police and citizens surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing. The Hollywood Reporter’s international editor Abid Rahman wrote that the movie starring Lone Survivor actor Mark Wahlberg will recall the horrific…

Acts of terror marked the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Terrorists cut a bloody path from Tennessee to Tunisia -- one that commanded much of the broadcast network’s attention. Only newscasts often ignored the religious timing of the threats by Muslim terrorists.

NYT Double Standard on Terrorist Blame: Muslims Innocent, GOP Guilty
June 17th, 2015 10:56 AM
Scott Shane's front-page New York Times Tuesday on a liberal mosque in Boston, a city that's hosted a growing number of Islamic terrorists and extremists, focused on a liberal mosque that promotes tolerance: "Muslims Work To Shed Stigma Tied to Terror – in Boston, a Tolerant Vision of Islam." But Shane's feverish defense of peaceful American Muslims calls up questions of his own previous story,…
