MSNBC's Reid Still Thinks 17 Agencies Backed Russia Election Report
November 13th, 2017 10:35 AM
With Twitter doubling its character limit to 280 from 140, the establishment press can now cram twice as much fake news into a single tweet. MSNBC's Joy Reid did exactly that in a Saturday morning tweet by mischaracterizing the scope of the intelligence community's assessment of "Malicious Cyber Activity" relating to the 2016 presidential election, and by falsely claiming…
Where's Obama? NY Times Expects Candidates to Be 'Unifying Voice'
July 11th, 2016 5:25 PM
In a Sunday front-page report at the New York Times, Patrick Healy, who has been covering the presidential race almost exclusively for well over a year, complained that neither major party's presidential frontrunner appears to have the capacity to be "a unifying candidate." After all, as his story's headline indicated, somebody, right now, needs "to Be (a) Unifying Voice…
WashPost Goes Full Politifact Over Fiorina's 'Secretary to CEO' Bio
September 29th, 2015 2:45 PM
The Washington Post's Fact Checker blog, after years of usually sincerely prepared though not always accurate posts, appears to have descended to the level of hackery typically found at Politifact.
One recent example demonstrating that the effort has turned into a weapon dishonestly employed against Republicans and conservatives comes from Michelle Ye Hee Lee, who on Friday called 2016…
Juan Williams, Fresh From Lib Journos' Private Meeting With President
November 24th, 2013 10:11 PM
On Thurday, Fox News "analyst" Juan Williams and several other liberal journalists met privately and off the record with President Obama.
On Fox News Sunday, Williams went into what apparently are the administration's internal (and perhaps becoming external) talking points about the policy trainwrecks HealthCare.gov and Obamacare in general have become. They are that the…
NYT's Peters 'Cleans Up' Jonathan Weisman's Original Report on Friday
May 18th, 2013 10:19 PM
Clearly, the New York Times couldn't run with Jonathan Weisman's headline or opening sentence in the report he filed shortly after Friday's portion of Friday's testimony at a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee in its Saturday print edition. And it didn't.
The original headline at Weisman's story, as seen here (HT Ann Althouse via Instapundit), was…

June 2nd, 2012 3:45 PM
Friday evening, Madison, Wisconsin blogger Ann Althouse reported receiving (HT Instapundit) an "Incredibly creepy mail today from the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund." She has a put up an image of what she received with names and addresses redacted (except for her name).

Obama's False Family Drama: Ann Dunham Was Not Denied Health Insurance
July 14th, 2011 10:31 PM
As Clay Waters at the Media Research Center's Times Watch reported earlier today ("One of Obama's Emotional Arguments for Obama-Care Proven Wrong in NYT Staffer's New Book"), the New York Times's Kevin Sack ran a story yesterday which "reflects badly on Barack Obama and how he misled people in his campaign for Obama-care."
I'll say. As reported by Sack…
Update: AP Still Won't Acknowledge Both Sides of Wis. Supreme Court Ju
June 26th, 2011 10:29 PM
Given a chance to revise and extend its 9:58 a.m. report (covered this afternoon at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog) on the June 13 altercation between Wisconsin Supreme Court Judges David Prosser, Jr. and Ann Walsh Bradley, the Associated Press's 5:29 p.m. version persists in telling its national audience only one side of the story.
Although the fact is that accounts as to who was the…
AP Predictably Tells Only One Side of Wis. Judges' Altercation
June 26th, 2011 3:21 PM
Despite the accumulated reportage and commentary available to the Associated Press this morning, the wire service, at 9:58 a.m Eastern Time (saved here for future reference, fair use, and discussion purposes), only reported on one side of the story relating to an altercation that took place between Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices David Prosser, Jr. and Ann Walsh Bradley. In doing so…
Village Voice Sneers, Snipes at Righty Blogs
April 23rd, 2008 2:10 PM
Last week's issue of the Village Voice featured Roy Edroso's review of "10 conservative Web scribblers," described therein as "buffoons" and in the article's subhead as "a confederacy of dunces." (Actually, Edroso names twelve bloggers, arriving at his figure of ten by counting the Power Line trio as one person.) Lefty snark aside, the piece is problematic in part…
