Flashback: Media's Olympic-Caliber Slobbering Over Kim Jun-Un’s Sister
April 27th, 2020 5:10 PM
Kim Jong-Un may or may not be about to reunite with his half-brother, uncles and the numerous North Korean officials he’s dispatched -- often in spectacular fashion -- from his service over the years.

Media Suddenly Like John Bolton After He Criticizes Trump
December 23rd, 2019 3:17 PM
Liberal cable hosts have found an unlikely new cudgel with which to attack President Trump: former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who recently panned the President’s North Korea policy as having “failed.” TV journalists on Monday treated this critique from Bolton as lucid and credible — yet these same networks back in 2018 described Bolton as a “…
FLASHBACK: CNN Founder’s Blindness for North Korean Atrocities
September 21st, 2019 12:15 PM
CNN, the network that likes to brag about being all about “facts first,” doesn’t always have a great track record when it comes to reality.

Ted Turner proclaimed, “...He didn…
MSNBC Criticizes July 4 Event -- Not as Grandiose as North Korea!

But when the event actually unfolded, and instead of tanks rolling…

July 2nd, 2019 10:13 PM
Wish that President Trump would not have inserted himself into Washington, D.C.’s Fourth of July celebrations, allowing A Capitol Fourth to remain on its own? Fine.

And as evidenced by those hot takes on Tuesday…

CNN Panel Bashes Fox News; Stelter Wants Trump Hit Harder
July 1st, 2019 3:45 PM
It’s no secret that Fox News is a right-leaning media organization when it comes to political commentary. Fox has several conservative hosts in primetime who are clearly identified as such. That fact often draws the ire of the liberal media, which was on full display on CNN’s New Day Monday morning. Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter continued the segment by saying that he…

June 30th, 2019 10:46 AM
Despite the fact that there were four North Korean nuclear tests under President Obama and only one under President Trump (none in almost 2 years) and gave everything away to Cuba for nothing, Sunday’s editions of ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today rushed to declare Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong-un at the DMZ to be nothing more than just a photo op.
