Only ONE of 122 WashPost Stories Admit Bezos Urged Bloomberg Bid
December 20th, 2019 7:45 AM
The Washington Post’s owner reportedly urged fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg to run for president. Just don’t expect to see that admitted often by The Post. A LexisNexis search revealed that The Post ran at least 122 stories (a mix of news and opinion) that mentioned Bloomberg’s potential candidacy or actual bid for the White House between Nov. 9, 2019, and Dec. 9,…
Lefty Journalists Lose Touch with Reality During Kavanaugh Testimony
September 28th, 2018 1:19 AM
With the liberal media unable to vocalize on camera their spin while Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was testifying Thursday afternoon, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the “Angry Kavanaugh,” calling him a “belittled marginalized white man” who, based on his summer of lifting weights, assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
WashPost Writer Flirts with Birtherism...Against Ted Cruz
September 2nd, 2015 8:52 PM
With the battle over the Iran deal heating up, Hillary Clinton’s e-mail troubles growing more severe, and more footage of Planned Parenthood’s callous harvesting of the organs of dead children coming to light, you would think the liberal print media would have their hands full. Rather than dwell on these stories, however, James Hohmann of the Washington Post decided that a much more…
Politico Contradicts Itself in Article Proclaiming Cruz Unelectable
March 27th, 2015 2:30 PM
Politico surveyed a "bipartisan group of key activists, operatives and thought leaders in New Hampshire and Iowa" to reveal "grave concerns about Cruz’s electability." A "bipartisan" group? Does this mean that Politico actually consulted Democrats to weigh in on Ted Cruz's changes in the early primaries? Yeah, there is an "unbiased" group for you…
Landrieu Doubles Down on Racism, Sexism Excuses
October 31st, 2014 9:26 PM
Curtis Houck at NewsBusters noted late Thursday that on that evening’s NBC Nightly News, incumbent Louisiana Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu told NBC's Chuck Todd that President Barack Obama is unpopular in the South because the region “has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans” and thus “[i]t’s been a difficult time for the President to…
At Politico, Walker's 126,000 Jobs Added Is 'A Little Over 100,000'
October 11th, 2014 2:26 PM
In covering the latest debate between incumbent Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke, the Politico's James Hohmann significantly understated the number of jobs added in the Badger State during Walker's tenure.
Hohmann wrote that "Burke attacked Walker for his 'broken promise' to create 250,000 private sector jobs during his…
Politico Echoes Planned Parenthood Attack Ads on 'Strident' Pro-Lifers
September 13th, 2014 10:50 AM
James Hohmann of Politico reported on a "nearly million-dollar" ad buy by Planned Parenthood against two Republican Senate challengers who are "taking heat for their strident opposition to abortion."
It's apparently not "strident" when the Democratic incumbents they're challenging get 100-percent ratings from the "pro-choice" crowd.
Howler of the Night From Politico: Charlie Crist As a Former 'Rock-Rib
August 26th, 2014 11:45 PM
Former Florida Republican Governor Charlie won the state's Democratic gubernatorial primary tonight.
In his writeup on Crist's defeat of an overmatched challenger, the Politico's James Hohmann wrote that "Only four years ago Crist was a governor who had run for office as a rock-ribbed conservative." That wording is a bit too clever. One might argue that Hohmann is merely…
Politico Pair Puzzled How GOP, 'Party of Hawks,' Has Gone 'Dovish' on
September 9th, 2013 9:45 AM
No website outdoes the Politico when it comes to looking at the world through Beltway-stereotyping glasses. A post this morning on Republican congressmen and senators' views towards attacking Syria exemplifies that outlook.
Apparently, in the fevered minds of Alex Isenstadt and James Hohmann, a GOP lawmaker learning about any idea to intervene militarily automatically salivates at the…
Politico Ignores Govt.-AP Timing Discussions in Saying 'Veteran Lawyer
May 18th, 2013 10:39 AM
In a story appearing this morning at the Politico about the Department of Justice's broad and unannounced subpoenas of the April and May 2012 personal and business phone records of reporters and editors at the Associated Press involving 20 phone lines and involving over 100 reporters and editors, James Hohmann found several "veteran prosecutors" who aren't necessarily outraged…
Politico Scrutinizes GOP for Pro-life Language in Platform, Fails to N
August 22nd, 2012 11:48 AM
"GOP rejects rape exception in platform," blared a Politico headline yesterday. "Even as Mitt Romney sought to quash the furor surrounding Todd Akin’s 'legitimate' rape comments, the Republican platform committee here approved an abortion plank that includes no exemptions for rape, incest or even to save the life of the mother," James Hohmann noted in the lead…
Politico Lets Bill Clinton Whine for More Credit For Welfare Reform, B
October 1st, 2011 11:41 PM
At the Politico, James Hohmann's biography page indicates that he is "an Honors graduate of Stanford University" who "studied American political history." I hope he skipped class during the time his profs covered the 1990s, because if not, he and many other classmates have been badly misled.
Hohmann covered Bill Clinton's commemoration of the twentieth anniversary…
