FLASHBACK: In 1998, Journalists Hated the Idea of Impeachment

December 19th, 2018 7:58 AM
Twenty years ago, on December 19, 1998, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Bill Clinton on two counts: perjury to a grand jury, and obstruction of justice. Back then, the liberal media howled about its injustice and since Clinton had a high approval rating, they insisted it would damage the Republicans for years to come. Keep these quotes in mind if the new Democratic…

Bozell & Graham Column: The Media vs. Brett Kavanaugh

July 10th, 2018 11:26 PM
The one guarantee about Trump appointing Judge Brett Kavanaugh is that the Democrats, fueled by their mindless street mobs, will try to destroy him. It’s how Democrats behave. It is not how the “news” media should behave. Is there anyone who disputes that? But it is how they will comport themselves, because they are one with their Democrat brothers and sisters.

July 9th, 2018 3:07 PM
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg again showed her blatant double standard in being quick to label conservative justices as "very conservative" but painting liberal justices as being more "centrist."

The Liberal Media’s Perpetually Skewed SCOTUS Coverage

July 9th, 2018 8:00 AM
President Trump won’t officially announce his latest nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court until this evening, but it’s already easy to predict the liberal media’s spin. As with all recent Republican nominees, reporters will repeatedly label them as “conservative,” which will nicely reinforce the Democrats’ strategy to paint them as outside “the mainstream.…

NPR's Nina Totenberg Touts 'Bad-Assery' of Liberal Hawaii Senator

June 8th, 2018 7:51 AM
National Public Radio touts itself as an oasis of civility. But the calm tones of its announcers belie a dramatic liberal tilt.

Mazie Hirono, Democrat of Hawaii (lifetime American Conservative Union rating: 0.73 percent). She said to people…

Friday’s New York Times featured a “Sidebar” column by the paper’s left-leaning Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak celebrating Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, “24 Years on the Bench, and Still Putting Them in the Seats.” The online headline gave her the nickname: “On Tour With Notorious R.B.G., Judicial Rock Star.” Liptak is a long-time fan of Ginsburg…

MSNBC Hosts Wrongly Claim Ohio Purges Nonvoters After Two Elections

January 11th, 2018 12:20 AM
On Wednesday, MSNBC was doing its part to spread misinformation that bolsters liberal spin on alleged "voter suppression" by Republicans as anchors Craig Melvin and Hallie Jackson -- hosting MSNBC Live at different times of day -- both wrongly claimed that, according to Ohio law, voters can be removed from the voting rolls if they fail to vote in just two consecutive elections.…

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.”

March 20th, 2017 2:57 PM

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 and Merrick…
