In a truly scathing public resignation letter posted Tuesday, former New York Times editor Bari Weiss laid bare the “unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge” she was subjected to at the so-called “paper of record” because of her moderate opinion. Well, on Sunday’s MediaBuzz, Fox News contributor and Town Hall editor Guy Benson suspected…
UPDATE: NYT Decides It Hates Free Speech, Apologizes for Cotton Op-Ed
June 4th, 2020 5:05 PM

December 21st, 2017 11:30 AM
On Tuesday night, Senate Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer got upset because too many other people were allegedly talking while he was making a speech on the Senate floor. CNN turned Sen.

August 15th, 2017 6:14 PM
New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters’ story on President Trump’s controversial response to the racist violence and killing in Charlottesville was posted online Tuesday: “Theories Abound Over Meaning of Trump’s ‘Many Sides’ Remark.” Peters did talk to some conservative media and was thus able to provide some useful countervailing facts about left-wing…

February 2nd, 2017 12:50 PM
The broadcast networks morning and evening newscasts, along with the cable news networks, have largely ignored the Tuesday report from Axios's Mike Allen that Hillary Clinton's campaign team blames President Obama for her loss in the 2016 election. Charlie Rose mentioned the revelation in passing on Thursday's CBS This Morning: "You have reports, for example, that the Hillary…

October 26th, 2016 4:51 PM
One of the many news outlets to cite the now-viral study by my colleague Rich Noyes about the massive slant in anti-Donald Trump network coverage was Wednesday’s Outnumbered on the Fox News Channel (FNC) and the assembled panel used it as a launching point to excoriate the double standard in propelling Trump to the nomination but now turning on him.
Networks Punt on Obama WH Revising Position on Hillary’s E-Mails
October 16th, 2015 4:09 PM
While the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC all prominently touted on Monday President Obama’s defense of Hillary Clinton on her e-mail scandal in a 60 Minutes interview, none of the three dared to report later in the week how the Obama administration largely walked it back by declaring that Obama believes Clinton’s private e-mail server “does not pose a threat to…
Townhall's Benson Slams Media for Uncritically Swallowing Obama's '5 M
March 18th, 2014 4:30 PM
Townhall's Guy Benson today took Washington Post's Aaron Blake and Vox.com senior editor Sarah Kliff to task for uncritically furthering Obama White House spin that 5 million Americans have successfully registered for ObamaCare.
This is patently false, Benson charges, noting that, at best, the number is somewhere closer to 4 million, assuming the very generous estimate of a 20 percent…
At AP, Fla. GOP Candidate's 1989 Accident Deserves National Coverage
February 26th, 2014 11:57 PM
Double standards in the establishment press's treatment of Republican and Democrat politicians is an unfortunate reality. Evidence that it's getting worse — to the point of begging the question, "At long last, have you no shame?" — can be seen in the disparate treatment of Florida's two major-party March 11 congressional special election candidates, Republican…

While Broadcast Media Buys 'Severe Weather' Excuse for Moving Obama Sp
September 5th, 2012 10:26 PM
If you have tickets for the Democratic National Convention and wanted to see President Barack Obama deliver his acceptance speech this Thursday at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, you’ll be greatly disappointed.

NBC Affiliate Tries Playing Defense For Dem House Candidate, Fails Mis
March 24th, 2011 4:11 PM
While NB usually focuses on the national news media, sometimes a local news segment is just so brazenly biased that it merits at least a mention.
A local NBC News affiliate in New York decided it would fact-check a National Republican Congressional Committee attack ad aimed at Kathy Hochul, the Democratic candidate for the congressional seat left vacant by former Rep. Chris Lee (R). The…
