June 27th, 2017 6:36 PM
In their never-ending quest to hammer Donald Trump, reporters in the liberal Washington Post referred to an international poll conducted by the Pew Research Center not once, but twice in two days claiming that the Republican president “has alarmed citizens of the nation’s closest allies and others worldwide.” In addition, the article posted on Monday by Post reporters Isaac…
WashPost Story on SNL's Ivanka Parody Ignores Her Brand's Success
March 12th, 2017 5:46 PM
An irony-ignorant skit on the March 11 edition of Saturday Night Live featured a parody commercial portraying Ivanka Trump promoting a perfume called "Complicit." Washington Post writer Aaron Blake covered the episode in an alleged "Analysis" blog post, yet managed to ignore the February success of Ivanka's product line despite a declared leftist boycott and Nordstrom…

February 10th, 2017 3:42 PM
Commenting Friday afternoon on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos being berated and prevented from entering a Washington D.C. public school, a Washington Post article (via its blog The Fix) brushed it aside as merely example of how American politics have become “a powder keg” of partisanship.
WashPost Finds No News in Anti-Kaine Protest at His Catholic Church
August 29th, 2016 7:07 AM
One of the "Most Read" articles on The Washington Post website is an Aaron Blake story headlined "Donald Trump has a massive Catholic problem." He's losing to Hillary Clinton among (self-professed) Catholics by 27 in an ABC-Post poll. Here's one reason: the Post hasn't written about Sunday's protest outside Tim Kaine's Catholic church in Richmond calling…
ABC’s Kimmel Parody Ad Claims Cruz ‘Almost Exactly the Same’ as Trump
March 24th, 2016 2:05 PM
Well that didn’t take long. After Cruz’s strong comments condemning Islamic terrorism Tuesday, the media seemed to be following the same teleprompter in making endless comparisons to Trump. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! also jumped on the bandwagon with a parody ad, narrated by an eerily realistic Mitt Romney impersonator, who claimed Cruz was “almost exactly the same [as Trump…
MSNBC's Thomas Roberts: We'll Take Our Cameras to Ted Cruz's Crazy Dad
April 9th, 2015 6:57 AM
Much like playground bullies, it does not take long for the liberal media to poke fun at the family members of candidates they don’t like – Republican candidates. The father-bashing began in earnest on Tuesday afternoon shortly after Rand Paul’s campaign announcement when MSNBC’s Live With Thomas Roberts decided to headline a segment of the fathers of Republican…
WashPost Reporter: Blame Conservative Media for Negative Hillary Terms
March 27th, 2015 12:03 PM
Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake picked up on the Hillary Clinton "Super Volunteers" badgering New York Times reporter Amy Chozick about the 13 words you can't use to describe Hillary because it's coded sexism.
But Blake took a fascinating turn: he defended the "mainstream media" against the idea they attacked Hillary. These negative…
ABC Skips, WashPost Downplays Majority Defines Obama a 'Failure'
September 15th, 2014 8:17 AM
When a Washington Post-ABC News poll ends up finding the "Best News for Republicans," the Post tries to find other findings to highlight in their headlines.
"Majority of Americans find Obama presidency a failure" wasn't going to be bolded on the front page. They went with "Support widens for air strikes" instead. ABC News, their polling partner, never found it.
Most Newspapers Skip Reid's Asian Gaffe; WashPost Pleads He's 'Almost
August 25th, 2014 8:00 PM
Scott Whitlock noted earlier today that CBS and NBC skipped over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s bad jokes about Asians (you’re not really the smartest, I can’t keep my Wongs straight). Additional Nexis transcript searches for “Harry Reid” and “Asian” show no mention on NPR, the PBS NewsHour, and even CNN and MSNBC (at least the transcripts they…
Column: The Coming Hispanic Conservative Awakening
May 8th, 2014 5:25 PM
"George W. Bush is a racist." Those where the first words I heard about modern American politics when I came here to study back in 2000. How did my friends know? Well, he was the Republican candidate. I wouldn’t want to be associated with someone like that, so I became a Democrat.
That scenario is not uncommon. That is how a large number of…
Polls Show ObamaCare Not Getting More Popular, Despite Their Happy Enr
May 6th, 2014 10:27 PM
During the past two months, most of what we've heard about the Affordable Care Act was the administration's announcement on March 31 that the target total of more than 7 million people had signed up for ObamaCare, and by May 1, that figure had grown to 8 million enrollees.
However, four polls were released during the past week that resulted in the same message: ObamaCare isn't…
Townhall's Benson Slams Media for Uncritically Swallowing Obama's '5 M
March 18th, 2014 4:30 PM
Townhall's Guy Benson today took Washington Post's Aaron Blake and Vox.com senior editor Sarah Kliff to task for uncritically furthering Obama White House spin that 5 million Americans have successfully registered for ObamaCare.
This is patently false, Benson charges, noting that, at best, the number is somewhere closer to 4 million, assuming the very generous estimate of a 20 percent…
