Column: The Stealth Edits Helping Stacey Abrams
When Democrats get caught in a political pickle, they can count on the borrowed authority of “journalists and fact-checkers” to bail them out. Take failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams pressuring corporations to put a financial squeeze on Georgia.
Doocy’s Day: FNC Reporter Presses Biden, Psaki on Georgia Voting Law
Marking another day in the White House Briefing Room rotation, Fox News’s Peter Doocy had quite a Tuesday as he was able to both question Press Secretary Jen Psaki on the federal government’s border crisis and their voting disinformation campaign and President Joe Biden on China’s culpability in the coronavirus pandemic and Georgia’s voting law.
Beware Journalists Using 'Fact Checkers' to Slam New GOP Ads on HR1
The Democrat-favoring "fact checker" websites are hard at work spinning for H.R. 1, the shameless attempt to federalize elections under the banner of "voting rights." Alayna Treene of the Washington-insider website Axios reported the National Republican Senatorial Committee will launch a "seven-figure ad campaign...targeting Democrats' effort to expand voting."
Column: Are Fact Checkers Hammering Biden, Cuomo? NO
CNN host Brian Stelter tried to insist that the focus of "fact checking" is now on Biden. But he invited on the boss of PolitiFact, and she is not demonstrating that at all. They're busier fact-checking Biden's critics. And he shouldn't have asked about Andrew Cuomo.
CNN 'Fact Checker' Ruled on Biden Lies in Town Hall...But Never on TV!
CNN's Chris Cuomo previewed their network's Tuesday town hall with Biden by claiming "We're minutes away from history!" Well, at least they treated the event as historic enough for their "fact checker" Daniel Dale to review it for boo-boos. But guess what? Dale never appeared on CNN's television shows to share his findings of "four false claims" by the president.
NEW NewsBusters Podcast: AOC Is Always A-OK on the Facts
In the newest platter of chatter on the NewsBusters Podcast, executive editor Tim Graham explores the depths of the "Ocasio-Cortex" and how the socialist Congresswoman from New York has told an engrossing tale of how frightened she was during the Capitol riot on January 6. The networks energetically dramatized an "Instagram Live" account that she gave, and no one questioned any of her facts,…
PolitiFact, AP, WashPost Leap to Defend AOC; CNN Alone Tries Balance
Snopes went first among liberal "fact checkers" in defending Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez against conservative critics of her Instagram Live testimony about the trauma of the Capitol riot, but other aggressive defenders followed, at AP and PolitiFact and The Washington Post. Only CNN decided to flag AOC for saying some unproven things.
Column: CNN Lies About Trump's Vaccine Plans
CNN published a story with the provocative headline “Biden inheriting nonexistent coronavirus vaccine distribution plan and must start 'from scratch,' sources say.” Nonexistent? If the Trump administration had a “nonexistent” vaccine strategy, how was the vaccine distributed across the country? This is self-evidently false.
'Hope They're Not Looting The Place': CNN Smears Trump Aide with Bust
Talk about kicking people on their way, literally, out the door . . . CNN's nasty little parting gift for members of President Trump's White House staff was to suggest they might be thieves. On New Day, as footage rolled of staff members carrying items out of the White House, Alisyn Camerota wondered whether they might be "absconding" with them. And Errol Louis snidely said: "…
Column: The Year in Favoritism Toward Liberal Bias
The Poynter Institute is a Florida-based journalism group that runs PolitiFact. On Poynter.org, they run a daily media report by Tom Jones, who sounds like Brian Stelter’s identically thinking twin. Their incessant party line of liberal-media cheerleading and conservative-media loathing really came through when Jones made a list of the “best and worst news media” of 2020.
Column: When The Media's Resisting Isn't Rewarded
McKay Coppins of The Atlantic – a very partisan magazine – penned an article headlined “The Resistance’s Breakup With the Media Is At Hand.” He admitted “In the Trump era, many Washington reporters became resistance heroes, showered with book deals, TV contacts, and Twitter followers.” Journalists couldn’t be distinguished from protesters, and the fame and fortune was…
Partisan CNN Abandons Principles to Heap Praise on Biden
There is no other way to describe CNN’s reaction to Joe Biden's softball Thursday interview with anchor Jake Tapper than partisan exaltation. Throughout the course of the 180-minute New Day broadcast on Friday, the leftist network spent nearly 110 of those minutes gushing over the friendly exchange between Tapper, Biden, and Kamala Harris. The partisan hacks had nothing but praise for…
Big 3 Censor Small Business Confidence CRASHING After Election Results
