A Tale of Two Scandals: Whitewater vs. Russia
July 26th, 2017 10:35 AM
The liberal media’s message to Donald Trump is clear. Don’t even dare think about removing Robert Mueller from his position as Special Prosecutor. Such a decision would be considered a “radical” and “dangerous” move against a man “even Republicans” have a deep respect for. However, this was hardly the stance the liberal media took when Ken…
Media Hated Investigations Into Clinton’s Obstruction of Justice
June 8th, 2017 11:24 AM
In today’s political climate, an observer would be roundly mocked if they suggested President Trump is the victim of a “spiteful” “witch hunt,” or even a “coup d’etat.” But during the Clinton impeachment drama in 1998 and 1999, liberal journalists trotted out all of those claims as a way to deflect and defend a Democratic President who was impeached…
Perplexed Totenberg: Gorsuch ‘Respected,’ Yet ‘Very Conservative'
March 21st, 2017 1:27 PM
Nina Totenberg is very confused. The hard-left NPR journalist on Tuesday admitted that Judge Neil Gorsuch is “respected,” yet he’s also somehow “very conservative.” Appearing on MSNBC, Brian Williams asked Totenberg to project the Supreme Court nominee’s ideology. At first, she hedged, saying, “I actually don’t know.”
NPR Promotes Feminist Accuser of Gorsuch, Skips Her Democrat Resume
March 20th, 2017 2:57 PM
National Public Radio greeted the opening of the Neil Gorsuch confirmation hearings in typical leftist fashion: Nina Totenberg publicizing the complaints of feminist groups and failing to disclose the partisan background of the accuser, named Jennifer Sisk, who claims Gorsuch made insensitive comments about maternity leave in a class at the University of Colorado law school.

FLASHBACK: Media Advocated for Obama’s Supreme Court Picks
March 20th, 2017 9:15 AM
If the liberal media cover the Neil Gorsuch hearings the same way they handled Barack Obama’s choices for the Supreme Court, they will do everything they can to pave the way to an easy confirmation. When they weren’t singing the praises of their backgrounds, or even comedic stylings, liberal reporters and anchors tried to downplay the leftist leaning of Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor…
False! PBS Claims Public Benefits From Its 'Civil Discourse'
March 16th, 2017 10:49 PM
President Trump's first budget proposed to end funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, something we at the MRC have advocated throughout our history.

July 1st, 2016 9:28 AM

Totenberg: GOP Messaged Will Move SCOTUS Nomination After Election
March 16th, 2016 9:11 PM
On today's With All Due Respect, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg broke some news, saying she thought President Obama "got a message from Republicans via backchannels that they would probably move this [Supreme Court] nomination after the presidential election."
Let's game-plan this out. If it means that Senate Republicans would…
Supreme Court Nominees Always Too Conservative for the Liberal Media
March 15th, 2016 10:25 AM
Whomever Barack Obama selects to fill the vacancy left by the death of Antonin Scalia expect the liberal media to worry the selection isn’t progressive enough. As might be expected, journalists criticize the Supreme Court appointments made by Republican presidents as “hardline” and “very conservative.” But even the nominees elevated by recent Democratic presidents…
Liberal Media Tout Book Honoring 'Notorious RBG' Ruth Bader Ginsburg
October 27th, 2015 4:59 PM
Just as the liberal media greet Antonin Scalia as some sort of Supreme Court supervillain, they lionize Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a superhero. A gushy new book spinning off of the Internet meme of the “Notorious RBG” is making a splash in the liberal media. The New York Times hailed it as “an artisanal hagiography, a frank and admiring piece of fan nonfiction.” On Monday…
NPR's Totenberg Pretends John Roberts Is 'Consistently Conservative'
October 6th, 2015 10:54 AM
As the Supreme Court term begins, NPR court correspondent Nina Totenberg played dumb on Monday’s Morning Edition, much like Adam Liptak at The New York Times. Why would conservatives dislike “consistently conservative” chief justice John Roberts?
Desperately employing rickety rationales twice to uphold Obamacare somehow doesn’t undermine “consistency.”…
After Hobby Lobby Ruling, NPR's Totenberg Claims Only Justice Kennedy
June 30th, 2014 5:49 PM
In an MSNBC interview today, Nina Totenberg, National Public Radio's longtime Supreme Court watcher, attempted to portray the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision as possibly wide-ranging, and even advised viewers that Anthony Kennedy's presence on the court may be the only thing preventing it from bringing in an era of sex and "foreign origin" discrimination by "…
NPR Asks if Allowing Prayer at Government Meetings Is ‘Essentially O
May 7th, 2014 10:36 AM
On Monday May 5, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that government meetings can include an opening prayer without violating the United States Constitution and NPR did its best to spin the ruling as severely troubling for religious minorities.
On Monday’s All Things Considered program, reporter Carrie Johnson asked“The question before the Supreme Court, whether Greece did…
