PBS Takes On Fox, Liberal Prof Says You Can't Link Illegals to Crime

February 29th, 2024 3:46 PM

Tuesday evening’s PBS NewsHour covered last week’s brutal murder of a college student by an illegal immigrant on the campus of the University of Georgia. It began factually but descended into typical PBS left-wing apologia -- funded by taxpayers like you. The NewsHour aired tributes from the president of her sorority, then summarized the case in a forthright manner. But then…

NYT Front-Page News? Random Dem Rants Over Jews 'Snookering' Palestine

February 28th, 2024 10:32 PM

New York Times reporter Jennifer Medina was the latest reporter to cover the pro-Palestinian rump of Democrats turning against Biden in Michigan, on Tuesday’s front page: “Biden Is Losing Party Loyalists Over Gaza War.” While it’s interesting to see the Times feature prominent coverage of a movement that opposes Biden in an election year, Medina’s unquestioning acceptance of…

Column: Who Will Deprogram the Radicals at National Public Radio?

February 21st, 2024 5:53 AM

One of the grandest fictions of our leftist media is that somehow, championing “social change” is what makes you a “bona fide news organization.” Anyone who resists that siren song isn’t a professional, but a propagandist. One-sided coverage is great -- if you've picked the right side. NPR displayed this fiction with an audaciously arrogant story headlined “Poland's new government deprograms…


Tapper Docs Include 14 Party Labels For Sanford, 0 For Blagojevich

February 20th, 2024 3:00 PM

CNN’s new documentary series, United States of Scandal, hosted by Jake Tapper, debuted on Sunday with two episodes. One detailed the extramarital affair of former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and the other involved former Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s scheme to sell the Senate seat that would be vacated by Barack Obama. However, only Sanford got the party…

PBS's Frontline Pops Anti-Trump Popcorn for Libs: 'Democracy on Trial'

February 5th, 2024 5:20 PM

PBS’s leftish investigative show Frontline devoted a two-and-a-half-hour episode, complete with trademark liberal melodrama, to the impending trial of former President Donald Trump, related to the Capitol Hill rampage of January 6, 2021. The Democratic-dominated committee's final report a blueprint for Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith. An indictment against Trump followed…

On PBS, Ex-NYT Reporter Pushes ‘Public Health Fascism,' Citing China

January 25th, 2024 9:42 AM

There was much media angst over Donald Trump declaring he would be a dictator on “Day One” of a second term in office to promote border security and oil drilling. Scrape off the spicy language, and it sounds more like the standard executive orders every president issues upon taking…


PBS: Dems Have a Far Left, And It’s Amazing (Plus Secret Lefty Biden?)

January 17th, 2024 1:06 PM

PBS NewsHour anchor Geoff Bennett was right about one thing regarding a new book by journalist Joshua Green, The Rebels: Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the Struggle For a New American Politics: "what doesn't get nearly as much attention is the far left's influence in the Democratic Party." But the Green interview skipped controversies and any…

PBS Special Hits GOP for 'Meaner' Debate, Skips Over Scalise Shooting

December 21st, 2023 11:32 AM

In a year-ending hour-long PBS election special America at a Crossroads, former NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff uncorked a  history of "mean" political debate and violence all conveniently came from the right, with leftism identified as going forward and MAGA going backward, bookended with bits of Woodruff labeling bias, from 1984 to 2023.


TV News Won’t Call Anti-Trump Attorney General and Judge ‘Democrats’

December 13th, 2023 8:30 AM

As testimony in the New York civil trial against Donald Trump’s businesses concludes this week, it’s worth asking why the networks are refusing to accurately describe New York Attorney General Letitia James as a Democratic partisan? Because, after all, she is.

NYT Finds Fear, Sorrow in 'Little Palestine,' Relays CAIR Propaganda

December 11th, 2023 8:50 PM

Local “enterprise reporter” Christopher Maag’s latest New York Times byline boasted of having “spent four weeks reporting in Paterson and Clifton, N.J., interviewing members of the Palestinian community,” and the resulting journalism certainly identified with the Palestinian cause, with added melodrama that started in the headline: “In a Place Called Little Palestine, People Feel…

NYT: Pampered Arab Rulers Accept Israel, Poor Arabs Want Israel Gone

December 11th, 2023 8:05 AM

Thursday’s New York Times featured “Gaza War Widens Gap Between Arab Rulers and Citizens” by Vivian Nereim, the Gulf bureau chief for the Times, based in Saudi Arabia. Nereim offensively portrayed those Arab leaders who dare agree to accept Israel's existence as pampered and privileged, in contrast to the poor citizenry marching in the streets of the Middle East country of…


CBS Freaks Over ‘Hard-Right,’ ‘Populist,’ ‘Right-Wing’ Wins in Europe

November 28th, 2023 3:43 PM

Tuesday’s CBS Mornings had a piece in the second half-hour peddling a tiresome liberal media trope of melting down over election results that don’t go their way, especially when it comes to bemoaning the “far right” and “hard right” in Europe. This time, they bemoaned the “hard-right,” “populist,” “right-wing” “backlash” that’s “shak[ing] up politics across Europe”, most notably in…

NY Times' Hulse Goes Label-Happy Again: GOP ‘Far-Right…Extreme Right'

November 27th, 2023 6:18 PM

New Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson (LA) certainly isn’t getting a honeymoon at the New York Times. The paper’s chief Washington correspondent Carl Hulse is both a veteran correspondent and a long-time player of the labeling bias game, as he showed in his Sunday edition story. The labeling slant started in the headline: “Mike Johnson's Rise to Speaker Cements Far-Right Takeover…
