New Yorker Snob on MSNBC Mocks White Male 'Lower-Educated' Trump Base
April 19th, 2020 3:01 PM
Joy Reid's show on MSNBC provides a virtual parody of liberal-elite condescension to Trump supporters. Reid found it "confusing" that Trump's populist base supports him despite supposedly not "getting anything economically out of this plutocracy." The New Yorker's Jane Mayer explained to Reid that Trump's "racist and anger-laced" rhetoric "…

April 14th, 2020 4:10 PM
When the media is not blaming President Trump for all that is not well in the world, they are blaming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

FLASHBACK: New Yorker Magazine Hyped Validity of Steele Dossier
December 14th, 2019 6:53 AM
In the wake of Justice Department Inspector Genereal Michael Horowitz's report, will the many mainstream media outlets who were hyping the validity of the Christopher Steele dossier now apologize? If so, The New Yorker magazine should be at the front of the apology line since they strongly hyped that dossier in both print and even in a video podcast in which their editor, David Remnick,…
MSNBC Blames: David Koch Symbolized 'Influence of Dark Money'
August 23rd, 2019 7:25 PM
The passing of free market and libertarian activist David Koch on Friday was met by much of the media with a dignified reaction that highlighted Koch's politics, but without portraying him as the cause of all that is wrong with the contemporary political climate. MSNBC Live guest host Chris Jansing took a different route, instead choosing to label the "Billionaire conservative…
Nasty NY Times Has History of Lashing Out at David Koch
August 23rd, 2019 2:25 PM
David Koch, the foremost of the businessmen, philanthropists, and libertarian activists known colloquially as the “Koch Brothers,” has died at 79. The New York Times marked his passing Friday by posting an obituary by Robert McFadden: “David Koch, Industrialist Who Fueled Right-Wing Movement, Dies at 79." The paper has long had a virulent hostility to the Kochs libertarian…
This NPR Host Couldn't Be More In Favor of Abusive Al Franken
July 28th, 2019 3:21 PM
Longtime NPR Fresh Air host Terry Gross is completely In The Tank for Al Franken. Back in the Dubya years, we contrasted her giggly, tickly Franken interview with a very hostile Bill O'Reilly interview, where he actually stormed out of the studio. Gross is also a big fan of New Yorker writer Jane Mayer, so it's completely predictable that she awarded 43 and a half minutes of national…
NY Times Jerk Doubts Franken & Biden Accusers, But Kavanaugh's Guilty!
July 27th, 2019 10:40 AM
Liberal journalist fervor for the #MeToo movement comes packed with caveats and reservations when the target is Democratic politicians -- but it’s open season on conservative figures. Case in point: Former Washington bureau chief David Leonhardt’s Friday newsletter, which dealt with a New Yorker report by liberal journalist Jane Mayer -- a hypocritical defense of Al Franken, the…
Don Lemon Show Wonders If Franken's End Was a 'Political Hit Job'
July 23rd, 2019 5:04 PM
On Monday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon brought on two liberal guests, Hilary Rosen and Kirsten Powers, to talk about Franken and whether or not he got "railroaded," and didn't get due process. Lemon kept asking if Democrats "jumped the gun" and play by an "outdated set of rules" while Republicans won't pressure Trump to resign for sexual…
Hypocrites: Stelter Justifies DNC Banning Fox from Hosting 2020 Debate
March 6th, 2019 3:19 PM
The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi broke news Wednesday afternoon that the Democratic National Committee would be banning the Fox News Channel from hosting a 2020 presidential primary debate in light of the rabidly anti-Fox hit job by The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer. Of course, the DNC has a fan of the move in CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter because Democrats are “…
MSNBC's Mitchell and New Yorker's Mayer Fret Over Media Bias...at Fox
March 6th, 2019 11:19 AM
Eager to promote an anti-Fox News hit piece in The New Yorker, on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell brought on the liberal magazine’s chief Washington correspondent Jane Mayer to tout some of the article’s most salacious accusations of pro-Trump bias at the rival cable news channel. Lacking any sense of irony, the two Democratic activists masquerading as journalists were aghast at…
Bozell & Graham Column: There Was Never Media Bias Before Fox News?
March 5th, 2019 11:04 PM
CNN and MSNBC were all aglow after Jane Mayer wrote a snide article in The New Yorker magazine titled “The Making of the Fox News White House.” The thesis was that Fox News and President Trump are very tightly aligned, starting with the fact that Fox News executive Bill Shine revolved from Fox into running the White House communications operation. That’s a fair subject for…
Morning Joe: Fox 'State News', 'Makes Money By Enraging Americans'
March 4th, 2019 1:20 PM
During the first hour of MSNBC's Morning Joe on Monday, the hosts brought on Jane Mayer of The New Yorker to talk about her latest article "The Making of the Fox News White House." Mayer's article of nearly 11,500 words provided the morning show a chance to take some swings at their competitor.
NYer's Jane Mayer: Journalists 'Beholden' to Report False Allegations
October 10th, 2018 9:58 PM
Remember back when a solid sense of skepticism was considered a prerequisite for working in journalism? Looks like that ethos is long gone and discarded. Speaking with former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara about her hit piece on then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, New Yorker writer Jane Mayer came across as revealing a bit more than intended.
Anti-Kavanaugh Writer’s History of Hit Pieces Against Conservatives
September 26th, 2018 5:16 PM
Jane Mayer made the network rounds, this week, promoting her New Yorker hit piece on Brett Kavanaugh, but a look at her past demonstrates why her work should be taken with biggest grains of salt as she has become a go-to author for partisan attack stories.
