March 20th, 2023 10:34 AM
NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck was back on the Fox News Channel late Friday/early Saturday for Fox News @ Night and, with the topic in his wheelhouse, he sounded off on the latest antics from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and the White House’s purposeful restricting of press access to President Biden amid a litany of domestic and foreign crises.
Journos Demand Minority Chief of Staff, Cops Having ‘Violence’ in DNA
January 27th, 2023 6:44 PM
Friday’s White House press briefing saw more hardballs about President Biden’s documents scandal, but also plenty of eye-rolling questions lobbying for a female person of color to become White House chief of staff, how Biden processes racial tensions, whether “the culture of policing” has “a comfort with violence and” implants inside the minds of police officers “an entitlement to use violence…
KJP Fumbles Border Questions, Ducks Twitter Files Question from Vaughn
December 20th, 2022 11:15 AM
Shortly before Chief Justice John Roberts stepped into temporarily thwart the end of Title 42, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre fumbled her way Monday afternoon through the latest briefing with basic questions from reporters about the administration’s plans to (allegedly) deal with their ongoing crisis they’ve exacerbated.
AP Duo's Jill Biden Biography Sold Only 250 Copies In First Week
May 2nd, 2022 7:03 AM
Too bad, so sad: a book by two Associated Press reporters painting a "fond portrait" of Jill Biden sold only 250 copies in the first week after its April 19 publication date. Democrat book buyers are still Trump-obsessed.
AP Touts Jill Biden's 'Healing,' Trashed Melania Trump's 'Marketing'
January 17th, 2022 5:21 PM
AP should stand for Associated Publicists when they write on Democrat first ladies. Reporter Darlene Superville penned a valentine on Monday headlined "Jill Biden: I didn’t expect ‘healing role’ as first lady." This sounds remarkably naive for someone who spent eight years as the Second Lady. At least there was no "Doctor" thrown in, maybe because the "healing" might sound too literal.
JEEZ: Psaki Snaps at Fox's Kristin Fisher in Battle Over Border Crisis
March 17th, 2021 8:57 PM
With another day in the books in which the Biden border crisis continued to spin out of control, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki found herself Wednesday under the gun from multiple reporters at the daily briefing, including Fox News’s Kristin Fisher and questions about journalists being denied ride-alongs and whether there’s a cap for illegal immigrant children being allowed into the…
Press Found UAC Trafficking in Jan. 2016, Did No White House Follow-up
June 19th, 2018 10:31 PM
The press has gone into hyperbolic overdrive criticizing the Trump administration for separating families caught illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. They clearly want the public, against all evidence, to believe that questionable processing of illegal-immigrant children and their families only began after Donald Trump took office last year. But in January 2016, the Associated Press, the…
Montana Editor Calls Out and Corrects AP, Reporter Darlene Superville
January 3rd, 2018 8:06 PM
On Saturday, Frank Miele, the managing editor of the Daily Inter Lake in Kalispell, Montana, recounted what he called an "unexpected chance to put my finger in the dike holding back the flood of fake news caused by those afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome." Miele acted on an "unfounded" story about one of President Donald Trump's tweets by the Associated Press's Darlene Superville, who "…
Obama to NYT: My Admin Hasn't Had the 'Kinds of Scandals' Others Have
November 22nd, 2016 6:42 PM
At a Sunday press briefing in Lima, Peru, President Barack Obama concluded his response to a question referring to how President-Elect Trump might consider handling his extensive holdings during his presidency by saying that "I am extremely proud of the fact that over eight years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations."
AP Frets Over Obama's 'Vacation Glow,' Distorts Iran Ransom Points
August 23rd, 2016 1:57 PM
At the Associated Press Tuesday morning, Darlene Superville added another chapter to her rarely uninterrupted eight-year exercise in hero-worship coverage of President Barack Obama and his administration.
Superville infamously gobbled up precious press briefing time at a White House briefing last year asking questions about the President's upcoming father-daughter weekend the day after Islamic…
Obama Takes Credit For 'Saving World Economy From a Great Depression'
April 25th, 2016 6:25 PM
If what Barack Obama contended in London, England on Saturday was obviously true, I suspect that the establishment press would be broadly proclaiming it and looking back at the President's wonderful work.
What Obama is claiming — that his presidency is responsible for "saving the world economy from a Great Depression" — is nonsense, but he's clearly beginning to lobby for it to become the…
AP's Darlene Superville: Critics of Obama Economy Are 'Deniers'
February 29th, 2016 5:34 PM
It appears that there's an effort underway to expand the definition of "deniers" beyond the realm of climate change/"global warming."
Ideally, in leftists' minds, a "denier" would be "anyone who doesn't accept leftist dogma without reservations." That definition would apparently extend to anything relating to the economy, if Associated Press White House reporter and dedicated Barack Obama…
AP: San Bernardino Terrorist Massacre Was a 'Mass Shooting'
December 17th, 2015 10:04 AM
Pity the poor folks at the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press.
The Obama administration, usually hyper-reluctant to characterize a domestic terrorist attack on U.S. soil as, well, a domestic terrorist attack, has actually had to admit in the face of overwhelming evidence that the San Bernardino massacre on December 2, during which 14 were killed and two dozen injured, was indeed a…
After Tenn. Massacre, AP Asks Earnest About 'Father-Daughter Weekend'
July 20th, 2015 12:46 AM
On Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest held his first press briefing after the massacre of then-four, now-five Americans "at a military recruiting office and a Navy-Marine operations center a few miles apart" in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
A mere three minutes into that briefing, thanks to the Associated Press's Darlene Superville, he was already on another topic: President Obama's…
