Bozell & Graham Column: Desperately Hating Clarence Thomas
February 20th, 2018 10:52 PM
New York magazine has assembled “The Case for Impeaching Clarence Thomas.” The author is the longtime anti-Thomas journalist Jill Abramson. For more than 4,000 words, Abramson labors to re-litigate Anita Hill’s dramatic loss in the court of public opinion. In the polls, 58 percent believed Thomas; only 24 percent believed Hill. Again the argument falls on its face.

NYT Defends Mueller Against ‘Drunk' Conspiracists at Fox News
December 14th, 2017 3:55 PM
Robert Mueller is the liberal New York Times new favorite prosecutor. (Being criticized by Donald Trump and the Republican Congress will do that to you.) Reporters Nicholas Fandos and Charlie Savage praised deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s defense of Mueller in “Firm Defense of Mueller As Republicans Attack.” And a Times lead editorial personally mocking Fox News hosts as conspiratorial…
Ex-NYT's Abramson: Trump 'Like Something Out of Soviet' 'Playbook'
October 18th, 2017 11:31 AM
On Tuesday's The Beat with Ari Melber on MSNBC, during a discussion of attempts by Russia to influence the U.S. presidential election, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson hyperbolically likened President Donald Trump's manner to that of "the Soviet old playbook that Putin still seems to be using."
PolitiFact 'Fact Checks' Hillary's Book, Can't Find Anything False
September 16th, 2017 7:41 PM
PolitiFact advertised on its home page an article on “Fact checking” Hillary’s campaign book What Happened. Don’t be shocked: PolitiFact didn’t find anything that they would call “False,” let alone “Pants on Fire.” They were very selective and helpful in picking out claims from the book...they skipped over Hillary suggesting the media favored Trump, for example.
Shootings? Beatings? Traffic Deaths? All Trump’s Fault!
June 20th, 2017 8:45 AM
A crazed leftist attempts to kill Republicans on a baseball field, a local candidate beats up a reporter, and an increase in traffic deaths. What do these all have in common? Liberal journalists managed to blame all of these incidents on President Donald Trump. The following is a collection of worst media and celebrity outbursts from the past few weeks.

Appearing as a guest on Friday's All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson slammed the Donald Trump administration's accomplishments so far as a "debacle" and declared that the Republican budget has "savagely" taken money from poverty programs and education. Abramson: "I think both of the scenarios, Chris, that you just laid out equal debacle because,…
Journalists Won’t Celebrate the Arrival of President Trump
January 17th, 2017 8:55 AM
Millions of Americans will celebrate Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday, but the vast majority of journalists probably won’t be among them — and it’s not their scrupulous “objectivity,” or a unique aversion to Trump’s personal style, that keeps them from joining the party. Reviewing the media’s inauguration coverage since 1989 finds that incoming Republican presidents receive little of the…
Former New York Times Editor: ‘Who Killed Hillary Clinton?’
December 8th, 2016 6:00 AM
Hillary Clinton’s failure to win the presidency means that her haters have reaped what they started to sow a quarter-century ago, argued former Times executive editor Jill Abramson in a Tuesday column for the liberal British newspaper The Guardian. “The activists, groups, think tanks and nonprofit ‘charities’ that made hay over the petty controversies that dogged [Clinton] had already succeeded…

October 14th, 2016 9:43 PM
Former (and fired) New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, now a regular columnist for the left-wing British newspaper The Guardian, hypocritically dismissed three women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct in “Did the Hillary Clinton intimidate Bill's accusers?

Mother Jones Pundit: No ‘Corruption’ Or ‘Deceit’ On Hillary’s Record
June 11th, 2016 11:20 PM
If there were a restaurant called Clinton Scandals, Kevin Drum has an idea of what the house specialty would be. “Whitewater was a nothingburger. Travelgate was a nothingburger. Troopergate was a nothingburger. Filegate was a nothingburger,” asserted Drum in a Wednesday post. “The Vince Foster murder conspiracy theories were a nothingburger. Monica Lewinsky was Bill's problem, not Hillary's.…
Guardian: Hillary, Anita Hill Faced ‘Poisonous Displays’ From GOPers
April 18th, 2016 9:27 PM
Confirmation, HBO’s new “fact-based dramatization” of the October 1991 Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill clash, reminded Jill Abramson, a former New York Times Washington bureau chief, managing editor, and executive editor, of “more recent congressional proceedings” that featured both “a lone woman witness” and copious Republican misogyny.
