CBS Hypes Calls Have Michelle Obama Be Joe Biden’s VP, New Documentary

May 6th, 2020 8:41 PM
It exposed just how warped their news judgment was.

On Sunday evening, CBS Weekend News marked one year since Joe Biden launched his presidential campaign.

NBC Manipulates Video: Cuts Around Biden Threatening to Assault Man

March 10th, 2020 9:19 PM
In a viral moment from an auto plant in Detroit Tuesday, a raging Joe Biden lashed out and threatened to assault (slap) an autoworker who confronted him about his support for curtailing Second Amendment rights.

March 10th, 2020 12:34 PM
Throughout the 2020 presidential cycle, the journalists at CBS have been trying to convince you that anyone who isn’t an avowed socialist must be a moderate. O’Keefe played video of an excited Harris at a Biden rally in Michigan: “I'm so proud to endorse Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States!” As video played of Harris, Booker and Biden holding…

CBS Ties Coronavirus to Medicare for All, Wonders If It'll Hurt Trump

March 4th, 2020 1:43 AM
Before it became clear that Super Tuesday would be an overwhelming success for liberal media candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, CBS News spent a few minutes talking up the coronavirus, wondering if it would it “infect” President Trump’s reelection chances. CBS also tried to tie the virus to Medicare for All. To borrow a Bidenism, this was not a joke.

Ahead of Their Debate, CBS Skips Sanders Doubling Down on Castro

February 25th, 2020 8:32 PM
Tuesday was the big night over on CBS where they would hold the final Democratic debate before the primaries South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states. And with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) occupying the frontrunner’s podium for the first time, one would think the host network would apply a little more scrutiny. But their pre-debate newscast on CBS Evening News completely…

February 24th, 2020 12:37 PM
On Monday, all three network morning shows combined could only manage a little over a minute (74 seconds) of air time to mention 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders defending deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. However, after President Trump held a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in July of 2018, the same broadcasts devoted 34 minutes to excoriating…

Deluded CBS Cheers ‘Moderate’ 2020 Dem Surging in New Hampshire

February 10th, 2020 12:12 PM
During the 2020 Democratic primaries, CBS This Morning journalists have repeatedly spun several of the candidates as “moderates.” (With the exception of socialist Bernie Sanders. That would probably be too much of a stretch.) This happened again on Monday as Ed O’Keefe labeled liberal Senator Amy Klobuchar a “moderate.” He also touted which candidates …

Surprise: CBS Presses Warren on Whether Soleimani Was a Terrorist

January 6th, 2020 5:34 PM
Given that journalists have echoed Democratic talking points on the killing of Qasem Soleimani and touted the militant as a “revered,” “inspiring” leader, it was a breath of fresh air on Monday to see CBS This Morning’s Ed O’Keefe flat-out ask Elizabeth Warren if he was a “terrorist.”

January 3rd, 2020 4:53 PM
On Friday, all three network morning shows were quick to seize on Democratic talking points slamming the U.S. killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani as “reckless” and even “illegal.” It all came amid media hand-wringing over the air strike in which journalists labeled the brutal murderer “iconic” and “inspirational.”
