NY Times Media Columnist Wonders Why Tara Reade's Not on TV (Bias)
May 2nd, 2020 9:22 PM
Recently appointed New York Times media columnist Ben Smith has hit the ground running. Unlike his predecessor Jim Rutenberg, Smith manages to find alternatives to attacking Fox News again and again. On Friday he dove in to the lack of press time for Tara Reader, who has accused probable Democratic nominee Joe Biden of sexual assault: “Why Won’t Television News Put the Accuser on the…
Bozell & Graham Column: The Media and Kavanaugh's Kangaroo Court
September 18th, 2018 9:51 PM
The erupting charges of “attempted rape” against Brett Kavanaugh when he was 17 show just how shameless the Democrats and the “Facts First” media have become. They are promoting charges where the accuser can’t remember when or where it happened. That is enough to stop a Supreme Court nomination?
Behar: Bill Accusers 'Tramps,' But Hillary Knows 'He Did Those Things'
October 14th, 2016 1:35 PM
Much is being made of The View host Joy Behar's outrageous smear earlier this week of three women who have accused Bill Clinton's sexual assault and unwanted sexual advances as "tramps." The blowback is richly deserved, especially because compelling evidence indicates that these women are the victims, not only of Bill Clinton, but of Hillary Clinton's enabling…
AL.com and AP Imply Clinton Vocally 'Denied' 1978 Rape
September 29th, 2016 11:02 AM
In a narrow sense, the item discussed here really shouldn't be newsworthy, because it's based on history which has for all practical purposes long been settled. But now that it's being treated as news, let's look into the can of worms at least two media outlets have chosen to open, perhaps without fully grasping the consequences of their doing so.
Leada Gore, an AL.com…
CNN: Bill Clinton's War-on-Women History Is Only 'Alleged'
January 4th, 2016 10:40 AM
Since last night, Matt Drudge has teased his link to CNN's coverage of Hillary Clinton "heckler" Katherine Prudhomme O'Brien with the following headline: "Clinton heckled in NH by rape survivor."
The headline at CNN's story by Dan Merica is quite different: "NH GOP lawmaker heckles Hillary Clinton over Bill Clinton's sex scandals." The headline…
Lisa Myers: TV Politics News Has 'All the Depth of Twitter'
March 16th, 2015 6:08 PM
Sharyl Attkisson, the former CBS investigative reporter whose book Stonewalled exposed liberal bias, has been no wallflower when it comes to speaking out about the kind of standards (or lack thereof) seen in journalism today.
In former NBC reporter Lisa Myers, she finds a kindred spirit. On Friday, she wrote “Lisa Myers sounds like me. She is also a former network news investigative…
On NPR, Ex-NBC Reporter Lisa Myers Agrees With Sharyl Attkisson: Media
July 9th, 2014 10:52 PM
NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik arrived late to the story of former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson on Monday’s Morning Edition. He found former NBC reporter Lisa Myers to agree with Attkisson’s point about TV news in the Obama years: “Overall, the mainstream media has been less eager to hold this administration accountable than it was to hold the Bush administration…
Mich. Car Dealer Is a Microcosm of What to Really Expect as Admin Ramp
December 31st, 2013 3:55 PM
Drudge's headline linking to a Politico item by Carrie Budoff Brown and John Allen about the Obama administration's plans to aggressively identify and promote Obamacare successes in 2014 ("White House Plans to Step up Obamacare Propaganda in 2014") is far better than the tired one Politico itself used ("White House looks to spread good Obamacare news").
Lisa Myers Ignores Her Own ObamaCare Bombshell on NBC Nightly News
October 29th, 2013 8:53 PM
As NewsBusters has been reporting, NBC News has largely ignored senior investigative correspondent Lisa Myers’ bombshell report about how the White House knew for at least three years that millions of people would lose their health insurance once ObamaCare was implemented.

Bozell: NBC Buries Own Reporter's Scoop to Hide President's Lies About
October 29th, 2013 4:36 PM
Barack Obama lied to the American people – repeatedly and with a straight face – every time he insisted that those who like their current healthcare could keep it under Obamacare. And he’ll keep lying to the American people because the liberal media refuse to hold him accountable.
NBC News, whose own reporter found the language in Obamacare proving Obama knowingly lied to…
NBC Gives Only 21 Seconds to Scoop That Obama Knew People Would Lose H
October 29th, 2013 11:53 AM
Near the end of the fourth story on Monday's NBC Nightly News, White House correspondent Peter Alexander managed to squeeze in a mention of the network's scoop that the Obama administration knew for years that millions of people would be kicked off of their current health insurance plans because of ObamaCare, despite the President's repeated assurances to the contrary. [Listen to…
Megyn Kelly Reminds Viewers: Obama Said You Can Keep Your 'Acme' High
October 29th, 2013 2:10 AM
Monday night on her Fox News program, Megyn Kelly played a clip of President Obama going beyond the now-infamous "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" promise. Earlier Monday, as Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters noted, Lisa Myers and Hannah Rappleye at NBC News revealed that the Obama administration knew three years ago that "more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the…
Three Admin Officials Swing Back Furiously at NBC Over Obamacare-Drive
October 29th, 2013 12:43 AM
On Monday, as Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters noted, Lisa Myers and Hannah Rappleye at NBC News reported that the Obama administration knew three years ago that "more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them." This of course directly contradicts President Obama's repeated promises that "If you like…
NBC News: White House Has Known For At Least 3 Years Millions Would Lo
October 28th, 2013 7:52 PM
In his sales pitch for ObamaCare, the President regularly told Americans that if they liked their current health insurance policies, they could keep them.
A blockbuster report just published at NBCNews.com by Lisa Myers and Hannah Rappleye not only completely refutes this, but claims that the Administration has known for at least three years that millions would lose their coverage due to…
