Hillary: Let's Force Changes in 'Religious Beliefs;' AP's Pace Ignores

April 25th, 2015 5:59 PM
You can usually set your watch to it. First, you learn about a "progressive" or liberal darling who makes a controversial, over-the-top statement which would get him or her in serious trouble with the general public if widely known. About 24 hours later, you visit establishment press coverage of the event, especially at the Associated Press, and find not a hint that anything…

Roseanne Spews Bizarre Anti-Catholic Attack on HotAir's Morrissey

April 1st, 2015 5:59 PM
On Wednesday, far-left actress Roseanne Barr launched more anti-conservative hate on Twitter – specifically targeting HotAir's Ed Morrissey for a Tuesday post where he wrote, "In matters of culture and taste, I usually bet on the side that doesn't include Roseanne." Barr immediately retorted by jabbing Morrissey for his open Catholicism (typos hers in this and all…

MSNBC's Anti-Catholicism: Reid Warns of 'Catholic Justices...Asserting

March 25th, 2014 1:07 PM
On Tuesday, Hot Air's Ed Morrissey correctly pointed out Joy Reid's implicit anti-Catholicism during the commentary segment that closed her MSNBC program on Monday. Reid zeroed in on the Supreme Court cases challenging the Obama administration's abortifacient/contraceptive mandate under ObamaCare, and hyped how "the Court that will decide includes six Catholic justices –…

NYC Mayor Bloomberg Is Using Taxpayer Money To Fund Anti-Gun Campaign

July 18th, 2013 3:15 PM
Imagine if you will a conservative Republican mayor used public employees' work time to advocate stricter state-level abortion regulations throughout the country? The Left would, and to an extent rightfully so, raise a fit, and the liberal media would, again, rightly so, beat the drums and make the abuse of power a major national story. But when it's liberal independent Mayor Michael…

No Joke! AP Says Gosnell Accomplices Had 'Few Options' For Employment

April 14th, 2013 1:51 PM
When the grand jury report in the Kermit Gosnell trial was released yesterday, one would think that the media would have as the primary takeaway the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's documentation of the numerous atrocities committed in this house of horrors.  Yet, for the Associated Press, the real victims seemed to be Gosnell's employees, those poor folks who had no job prospects…

New WashPost Poll Again Omits Senate Democrats As Potential Culprits i

March 13th, 2013 6:09 PM
Back in February, I noted the Washington Post’s egregious omission of Senate Democrats as a category in a poll gauging the blame game if sequestration went into effect.  Sequestration was an initiative spearheaded by the Obama White House, which is part of the story that has many on the left ripping liberal journalism icon Bob Woodward for reporting.  Well, what do you know, in…

WashPost Saves Democrats From Blame in Sequestration Poll

February 26th, 2013 6:15 PM
The Washington Post has been around for more than 150 years and is the largest newspaper in the nation's capital. So there's absolutely no excuse why the paper recently commissioned and published a poll related to the looming sequester which failed to account for the Democrats controlling the upper chamber, even though Republicans were noted as controlling the House.  As Ed…

The president needed to have a sit down with Barbara Walters and…

When Will Media Critique DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz's Tenuous Re

September 5th, 2012 12:28 PM
While MSNBC is on an all-out effort to tar GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan as a liar for having leveled completely accurate statements in his nomination speech at last week's convention, you can expect the Democrat-friendly network, along with most other media outlets, to overlook Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz's history of a tenuous…

On Feb. 13, 2008, ABC News Noted Then-Sen. Obama's '100 Years' Remark

September 4th, 2012 5:36 PM
While folks at MSNBC are calling Republican vice presidential nominee a "compulsive liar" for, among other things, his factually accurate statement about then-Sen. Obama's February 13, 2008 visit to a now-shuttered Janesville, Wis., General Motors plant, it's worth noting that, well, the video doesn't lie. Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com has Obama's pledge on video here […

ABC's Tapper Notes Obama's Evasion Of W.H. Press Corps; POTUS Has Time

August 16th, 2012 3:24 PM
ABC News's Jake Tapper noticed an interesting trend with President Obama.  He hasn't been around to take any questions from the press lately.  In fact, he has evaded the national press corps  for more than two months.  However, as Tapper noted on his blog today, Obama did have time to talk to "reporters from People Magazine and Entertainment…

March 18th, 2012 4:45 PM
On Friday, Darren Samuelsohn at the Politico (HT Hot Air), the place where it seems that inconvenient stories go so the Associated Press, the New York Times and the rest of the establishment press can claim they have an excuse not to cover them (respective proofs as of about 3:30 p.m. in the current instance are here and here), covering -- or I should say attempting to cover -- the latest of…

NYT Downplays, AP Ignores Fri. Solyndra Doc Dump Showing WH Pre-Electi

January 16th, 2012 11:23 PM
On Friday, the White House engaged in its customary document dump, mostly secure in the knowledge that a lazy establishment press would, as usual, pay it little heed and then declare it to be old news by Monday morning. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air identified the significance of documents relating to now-bankupt Solyndra, the California-based solar panel manufacturer which borrowed $535 million…
