April 14th, 2024 8:02 AM

The PBS NewsHour led its Tuesday evening newscast with the week’s big issue: abortion, an issue of such apparent import (and perceived advantage to the Democratic Party in November) that both anchors took a crack at it. After a soundbite from Arizona’s Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs saying the “abortion ban is extreme and hurts women,” Bennett introduced journalist Carter Sherman, a…

PBS NewsHour co-anchor Amna Nawaz escaped her D.C.-based news studio and ran to the Arizona-Mexico border, filing from both sides of the border in three reports over three evenings.

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.

February 24th, 2024 10:50 PM

Did a “nonbinary bathroom ban” kill an Oklahoma trans teen? That’s what tax-funded news wants you to think. The PBS NewsHour again demonstrated its fealty to “trans” issues in a Thursday evening story on the tragic case of Nex Benedict, a “non-binary” Oklahoma student who died mysteriously one day after a fight in a school restroom.

Shame on the Republican Party! That was the message from Washington Week with The Atlantic panelist (and PBS NewsHour co-anchor) Amna Nawaz on Friday’s show.
