CBS Knocks ‘Chaotic’ Trump Admin; 'It Was That Kind of Day'
January 26th, 2017 9:21 PM
From the first words out of anchor Scott Pelley on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, one had to know what kind of newscast it would be. Throughout the newscast’s A-block, every segment involved almost exclusive criticism of the Trump administration on issues ranging from the border to the media to Syrian refugees to trade agreements.

December 9th, 2016 2:23 PM
You can’t make this stuff up. On Friday morning’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo badgered Rep. Marsha Blackburn over defending Trump’s conservative pick for the head of the EPA asking her, “Can you be for clean air and water if you do not believe that man has a hand in global warming?”
Powerless: Environmentalists Look to Algae, Reject Fracking, Nuclear
December 4th, 2015 10:51 AM
Biofuels should serve as an instructive lesson for negotiators in Paris, because they are proof that not all energy sources work as well as anticipated. But journalists are unlikely to remind them or the public. The early 2000s were the heyday of good press for biofuels. Major newspapers like The New York Times ran stories about Willie Nelson’s biodiesel startup and individuals converting their…
Powerless: Left and Media Vilify 90 Percent of Energy Supply
December 1st, 2015 10:12 AM
Certain types of energy are certain targets for the 190 governments’ representatives gathering in Paris this week and from green activists surrounding the melee. The goal of the U.N. climate conference in Paris, known as COP21, is to get an international agreement on reducing carbon emissions, out of fear that climate change is a global threat. But the agenda of some developing nations to make…
Why Does the Media Hate (Poor) People Having Cheap Food?
October 28th, 2015 12:48 PM
The media are, of course, almost uniformly Leftist - which means they just about always toe the Party line. Including the belief that in order to help the poor - government must perpetually grow. Of course we conservatives also want to help the poor - we just think shrinking government is the way to actually do it. When things get more expensive - the poor get hammered hardest. But the media…

Washington Post Wants You to Pay More for Food -- If the Money Goes to
March 4th, 2014 9:13 AM
The Washington Post Editorial Board has long had a government agriculture policy position that is actually grounded in Reality. Going back at least half a decade - to the passage of the last terrible Farm Bill - they have been rightly pointing out that the Crony Socialist, picking-losers-at-the-expense-of-winners matrix of taxes, subsidies and quotas is simply a disaster.
MSNBC.com Pits 'Science Guy' Nye Against Republican Congresswoman
February 17th, 2014 1:51 PM
MSNBC.com has drawn a line in the sand regarding where it stands on the “consensus” of man-made climate change. Following Bill Nye’s appearance on Sunday’s Meet the Press, MSNBC.com’s Ned Resnikoff continued to peddle the liberal line on climate change and conveniently dismissed any skepticism of human involvement on the issue. Just yesterday, David Gregory, moderator of Meet the Press, used…
Morano Smacks Down Sierra Club Director: ‘Sierra Club Took 26 Millio
December 11th, 2013 12:35 AM
For years, climate alarmists have dishonestly accused global warming skeptics of taking money from Big Oil to do their bidding. On CNN’s 11th Hour Tuesday, when Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune made such a claim, Climate Depot’s Marc Morano marvelously fired back, “The Sierra Club took 26 million from natural gas and Michael has the audacity to try to imply that skeptics are…

Breaking News: People Like the Government Giving Them Other People’s
December 4th, 2012 8:40 AM
To paraphrase the estimable Yogi Berra - it’s like deja vu all over, and over, and over, and over again. The Jurassic Press media is enraptured with a certain story.
Media Debate Fail: Obama, the Auto Bailout and China
October 23rd, 2012 9:52 AM
In their third Presidential debate analysis, the Jurassic Press Media last night and thus far this morning have failed utterly in their role as fact checker and record-corrector - at least when it comes to what President Barack Obama had to say. As but one glaring example, there were the President’s absurd assertions regarding the auto bailout and China.
Networks Ignore Ethanol Mandates in Most Coverage of Historic Drought
August 27th, 2012 10:01 AM
The severe drought affecting the Midwest this year has caused the latest corn projections to be the lowest since 1995. With such a small corn crop, the government mandates that make some of that corn be used for ethanol make even less sense, and will raise prices even further. The drought has been a big news story for the network morning and evening show in the past six months, earning 55…

June 22nd, 2011 11:13 AM
Lawrence O'Donnell on Tuesday accused Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) of being a socialist. "The Last Word" host, who has admitted on national television to himself being a socialist, did so by cherry-picking from an article published at the perilously liberal website "The Huffington Post" (video follows with commentary and full transcript at end of post):
