April 19th, 2023 3:56 PM
Here's a small sign that Time magazine has become less of a "news magazine" than ever. Their latest "cover story" is a short editorial by a former editor raging against Donald Trump, and how the entire spectacle of his indictment was a "crime scene."
THRILLS and TINGLES: Media’s Long History of Adoring Barack Obama
November 13th, 2020 7:55 AM
Before they despised Donald Trump, the liberal media adored Barack Obama. From the moment then-state senator Barack Obama showed up on the national stage to address the Democratic convention in 2004, the news media were in love. When Obama ran for President four years later, news reporters led the cheers. And as President, reporters touted his “prodigious talents,” his “amazing legislative…

With the Democratic Party defeated, ObamaCare set for repeal, and incoming President Donald Trump poised to revoke a host of his executive orders, Obama’s actual legacy will likely fall far short of what his media fan club once imagined. But one aspect of his place in history seems secure: Barack Obama has been the lucky recipient of more biased, positive “news” media coverage than any other…
Person of the Year Obama Was ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’; Trump Is a ‘Demagogue’
December 7th, 2016 11:43 AM
What a difference a Person of the Year can make. In 2008, Time journalists hailed their choice, Barack Obama, as an "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Jedi and cheered, “Why History Can’t Wait.” In contrast, 2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump is an “outlandish” “demagogue.” The Obama cover featured the now cliched hope poster. Trump’s image read, “President of the Divided States of America.”

Bozell Column: Unaccountable Hillary Clinton
January 23rd, 2014 11:22 PM
CNN anchor Jake Tapper blandly admitted the obvious in a radio interview with conservative host Hugh Hewitt. The same reporters that insist their former GOP favorite Chris Christie is ruined for 2016 by traffic jams on a bridge are letting Hillary Clinton skate for embassy-security neglect that led to four dead government employees at Benghazi.
Why would so-called watchdogs of government…

Time Magazine Cover Now? 'Broken Promise' Then? 'Paging Dr. Obama
November 21st, 2013 5:34 PM
The cover for the December 2 issue of Time magazine has been released and it’s a brutal shot at the failed ObamaCare rollout. Underneath a picture of a broken pill with the words “Obama Care” imprinted on it, the headline reads: “Broken Promise, What It Means For This Presidency.”
However, back in 2009 Time magazine was singing a different tune when it depicted the President as your friendly…

Now it's true that Gibbs couched her remarks…
I Like Barack: Obama Reminds Historian Brinkley of Eisenhower
July 5th, 2013 8:18 AM
This Fourth of July weekend is turning into an unforseen laff-fest. Yesterday we had NBC featuring a photo of President Obama making what he might have thought was an assertive hand gesture while discussing the situation in Egypt with his aides.
Today treats us to historian Douglas Brinkley, on Morning Joe, claiming that when it comes to foreign policy, President Obama reminds him of, yes,…
