LOL: WashPost Warns of Democrats Putting Out Fake Newspapers
October 17th, 2022 6:34 AM
On their front page on Saturday, The Washington Post reported on the latest form of Democrat trickery: "Newspapers with a partisan aim filling the void of traditional media." They're right to call out this deceptive tactic of using the "trappings" of real newspapers to spread Democrat messaging. But seriously, doesn't this also sound a lot like....The Washington Post?
Bloomberg Shifts Massive Ad Campaign to Support Impeaching Trump
January 22nd, 2020 11:24 AM
Liberal billionaire 2020 Democratic candidate and Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg said he’d have to “swallow two or three times” before he would “vote to convict” President Donald Trump. But that may have just been political theater. Bloomberg intends to “shift his television ad message this week to directly call for President Trump’s removal from office, with a new spot that will run in…

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, 2019.
WashPost Spills Major Ink Bashing Trump as Racist, Defending the Squad
July 19th, 2019 5:07 PM
While NewsBusters has spent a copious amount of words this week on the liberal bias on television this week against the President for his criticism of the squad, a review of The Washington Post showed that it spilled more than its share of ink to defend the so-called “Squad” over the course of 16 print stories from Monday to Friday, ranging from supposedly straight news items to some that…
Is Michael Bloomberg a Centrist? The Washington Post Can Pretend
October 30th, 2018 7:17 AM
At this point, is Michael Bloomberg really anywhere near the center? The Washington Post pretended it was so on Sunday in a Michael Scherer article titled "A political aberration courts the Democratic nomination." To be a stitch to the right of today's Democratic Party is not the "center," just like being a stitch to the right of the ultraliberals in Manhattan is not the "center."
Media Ice Cream Scream: Trump Takes 2 Scoops With Dessert
May 11th, 2017 11:51 PM
Time Magazine published a side piece by Michael Scherer and Zeke J. Miller accompanying its primary story on Miller's interview with the President. In "Donald Trump After Hours," the pair observed that "At the dessert course, he (Trump) gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else." Hard as it might be to believe, some unhinged…
TIME Magazine Puts Bannon, Never Axelrod, On Cover
February 2nd, 2017 4:12 PM
On Thursday's Morning Joe, the panel discussed TIME Magazine's latest cover of White House Chief Strategist and Special Counselor Steve Bannon captioned "The Great Manipulator." It is imporant to note, unlike former Bush senior adviser Karl Rove and former Obama adviser David Axelrod, Bannon has been dubbed as if he is the "president's brain." The former was on the cover of TIME in 2005, while…
NYT Caught Altering Christie Story: Port Authority Official No Longer
February 1st, 2014 2:53 PM
Longtime readers here may recall that yours truly and others have written about liberties New York Times reporter Kate Zernike has taken with the truth, especially in her reporting on the Tea Party movement. Her penchant for inventing baseless stories about alleged racism in the movement once caused the late Andrew Breitbart to label her "a despicable human being."
Breitbart might well have…
Time Magazine Urges President Obama to 'Get Mad' About ObamaCare Websi
October 21st, 2013 12:10 PM
Moments earlier, President Obama wrapped up a petulant, whiney Rose Garden harangue in which he defended ObamaCare while insisting no one was more frustrated by the botched roll-out than he was.
Earlier this morning, Time magazine took it upon itself to counsel that the chief executive "has to get mad" about the failures of the ObamaCare web portal. "Political reality, unlike actual reality,…
NPR's Diane Rehm Show Stuffed With Reporters Decrying 'Obamacare Madne
October 15th, 2013 3:02 PM
You can trust National Public Radio to take the statist side in a shutdown. It happened again on The Diane Rehm Show on Monday, where “objective” reporters took turns slashing at “reality”-deprived Tea Party conservatives. Washington Post reporter Lori Montgomery said “the Obamacare push was a giant mistake.”
She even announced that “Obamacare madness” can be blamed for the shutdown:
Time's Scherer Blasts Obama Ad That Skews Mitt Romney's Position on Ab
July 13th, 2012 12:45 PM
As we noted previously and to its credit, the Washington Post has been critical of misleading Barack Obama attack ads on Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Now Time magazine has taken to fact-checking an Obama ad which hits Mitt Romney on a hot-button social issue: abortion.
Time magazine's Michael Scherer -- no Romney backer he -- slammed the Obama spot as "centered on a clear untruth," and…
Time Mag’s Scherer Hails ‘Incredibly Eloquent’ Lugar Manifesto
May 11th, 2012 9:23 AM
The Washington press corps always love it when establishment Republicans scold conservatives for trying to “purify” the party, and Time magazine’s Michael Scherer did not disappoint. “Indiana Sen. Dick Lugar did not go quietly, after losing his primary contest Tuesday in Indiana to a Tea Party-backed challenger, Richard Mourdock,” Scherer wrote the next day in a Time “Swampland” blog titled “…
Time Reporter: Obama Running for Reelection Is as Surprising as Playbo
December 27th, 2010 4:02 PM
Time magazine's Michael Scherer on Monday constructed one of the odder political metaphors when he compared the likelihood of Barack Obama running for reelection to the recent announcement that Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is engaged.
Appearing on Monday's Early Show, he joked, "This is about as surprising as Hugh Hefner getting married again." The weird comparison makes even less sense when…
Blogged Too Soon? Time Writer: Dems 'Will Probably Swallow the Tax Cut
December 9th, 2010 3:27 PM
Shortly after 5 p.m. yesterday, Time's Michael Scherer laid out his reasons why he believed Democrats would eventually come around to President Obama's compromise with congressional Republicans on tax policy.
