Press Meekly Accepts UK Judge's Reporting Gag on Activist's Arrest
May 29th, 2018 11:58 PM
On Tuesday morning, UK and many international media outlets finally began reporting on the Friday arrest and imprisonment in England of anti-immigration activist and journalist Tommy Robinson. The delay of over three days in covering the story was due to out-of-control statism combined with journalistic cowardice.
Newsweek Cover Story Looks Back to ‘90s to Defend Clinton, Bash GOP
September 18th, 2017 1:35 PM
The long essay-cover story of Newsweek’s September 15 issue by journalist David Friend looked intriguing: “Before Trump Was President, Online Sex Videos, Bill Clinton and the Naughty '90s Changed America.” Yet Friend's real targets weren't the Clintons themselves, but the Clintons’ awful right-wing enemies, the embarrassing people who dared accuse him of sexual…
Irony! Williams, Guest Blame Eroding Trust of Media on Conservatives!
February 8th, 2017 5:31 PM
In a hilarious case of irony, The 11th Hour host and serial liar Brian Williams teed up guest Charlie Sykes on Tuesday to lambaste conservative media (like the one you’re reading) for being why no one trusts mainstream media in the age of Trump and alternative facts.
The Attacks on Conservative Talk Radio
November 6th, 2016 3:37 PM
Here we go again. Over at Business Insider, one-time Glenn Beck guy Oliver Darcy (he formerly of Beck’s The Blaze) and BI’s Pamela Engel have headlined "[t]he GOP must do something about the conservative media industrial complex if it wants to survive" in which they write that (brace yourselves) President Obama has correctly diagnosed the problem with the GOP.
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…
Wash Post's Bump: My Doctor Trumps Hillary's in Assessing Her Health
October 24th, 2015 2:32 PM
A mini-war broke out yesterday between the Washington Post's Philip Bump, who would apparently prefer to keep discussions of Hillary Clinton's health off the table, and Matt Drudge. As would be expected, Drudge won in a rout, while Bump continues to pretend that he didn't.
Bump, in his disingenuous Friday morning entry at the Post's all too appropriately named "The Fix…
Mitchell on Lewinsky's Speech: 'Timing Couldn't be Worse' For Clintons
October 20th, 2014 9:39 PM
On Monday night, ABC and NBC offered segments on Monica Lewinsky’s first public comments in years that came during a conference in Philadelphia for millennials by Forbes and explained how she was the first victim of cyberbullying during her affair with then-President Bill Clinton in the late 1990s.
During the segment that aired on NBC Nightly News, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell…
Joe Garcia (D-Fla.): 'We've Proved Communism Works
May 21st, 2014 2:28 PM
One would think that Florida Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia can only get so many free passes from the national press before they'll have to acknowledge his serious problems. We'll see.
Back in January, the Associated Press and the rest of the national establishment media managed to limit their coverage of the arrest and ultimate guilty plea of Garcia's chief of staff for…
'No Longer Working Out': Another Investigative Reporter, Michael Isiko
April 14th, 2014 10:42 PM
On Friday, Erik Wemple -- a blogger for the Washington Post -- announced that the “renowned investigative reporter” Michael Isikoff was leaving the “Peacock Network” that day because “it was increasingly clear" that the news division “was moving in directions in which there were going to be fewer opportunities for my work,” Isikoff told the New…
Drudge 'Liberty Tax' Update: A CPA Firm Employee Weighs In
March 27th, 2014 10:25 AM
One of the odd things about the weekend pot-stirring by Matt Drudge over his stated inclusion of one-quarter of his estimated 2014 "Obamacare penalty" tax for not carrying health insurance coverage this year — calling it a "liberty tax" — is that few if any of those who criticized him seem to have bothered to consult with a tax practitioner for an expert take on…
Limbaugh, Palin Defend Drudge's Payment of ObamaCare 'Liberty Tax
March 26th, 2014 3:19 PM
Ever since Friday afternoon, when Matt Drudge tweeted that he had just paid the “ObamaCare penalty for not getting covered” and called it a “Liberty Tax,” that post by the editor of the Drudge Report website has been slammed as a “flat lie” and “bad press” for the approaching March 31 enrollment deadline of the Affordable Care Act.
Diligent Drudge Includes Obamacare Penalty in First Federal Tax Estima
March 25th, 2014 12:56 AM
On Friday afternoon, Matt Drudge announced in a tweet that "(I) Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX!"
A White House spokesman and the "progressive" press proceeded to thoroughly embarrass itself in its rebuttal attempts. How do I know? Because, four days later, despite the substantial and widely-known uproar…
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").

September 13th, 2013 12:03 PM
Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert took some comedic shots at Russian President Vladimir Putin Thursday.
