Media Bias Debate
'Could He Perform Job?' Mika Speaking of Herschel, Or Fetterman?
On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski asks, "can he speak to the issues? Does he have a grasp on the issues? Would he be able to perform the job as senator?" Mika was speaking of Republican Herschel Walker, candidate for Senate from Georgia. But the same questions could just as easily have applied to John Fetterman, the stroke-impaired Democrat from Pennsylvania. Except the liberal media never asked…
Bozell Says Soros' Global Media Influence Makes Him 'A Dangerous Man'

Propaganda Czar: Soros Bankrolls 253 Groups to Influence Global Media
Leftist billionaire George Soros used his charities to build ties with hundreds of media organizations around the world involved in news and activist media.

They also insulate him from inquiry because reporters see him as an ally, not a target for investigation.
Megyn Kelly, John Stossel SLAM Liberal Media Bias, Envy, and Hatred
Today, big media has an agenda. Fox and most talk radio push right; most other media spin left. For a long time, leftists pretended this wasn’t happening. In 36 years at CBS and ABC, none of my colleagues admitted leaning left. There were only “facts” versus “narrow-minded conservatives.” Then Bernie Goldberg’s book “Bias” came out. The book is dead-on accurate, and a huge bestseller, but my…

Editor’s Pick: National Review Takes Blowtorch to Pro-Censorship Media
Writing Sunday for our friends at National Review, senior writer Charles C.W. Cooke provided another scalding evisceration of the liberal media that have become modern-day Stasi agents meting out punishment for undesirable opinions and “zealous obscurantists staffing would-be censorship agencies” and thus having moved beyond previous self-centered descriptors as “firefighters,” “mediators,”…

Flashback: When Dems Lost ’02 Midterms, Liberals Blamed Fox News
Twenty years ago, Democrats lost a midterm election they had expected to win. But instead of blaming “candidate quality” or a party message that was out of synch with voters, liberal pundits whined that the real problem was that the media were too slanted towards conservatives for liberals to get a fair shake. That’s right, a pro-conservative press.
Why the Legacy Media Is Panicked About Elon Musk’s Twitter Takeover
It has now been a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter, and the wailing and gnashing of teeth is still audible across the legacy media landscape. In one sense, that's rather shocking: Why, precisely, should members of the media be so apoplectic about a billionaire taking over a social media company from other millionaires, pledging to loosen restrictions on dissemination of speech? In…
Don Lemon: Kari Lake Pelosi Comments 'Vile, Vile'
In his first day co-hosting the new show, CNN This Morning, Don Lemon calls Kari Lake's comments on the attack on Paul Pelosi "vile, vile."

Politico Slams DeSantis As 'Red-Toothed Biter' As He Handles Hurricane
Don't be fooled by the benign headline: "Ron DeSantis Shows Some Good Manners." No good deed goes unpunished . . . particularly when it comes to the liberal media, and the person performing the good deeds is a top contender to wrest the White House from Democrat grip. Example A: this Politico magazine column by Politico's "senior media writer" Jack Shafer. Shafer's entire…
