May 2nd, 2024 10:27 AM

Stuart Stevens is senior adviser of the Lincoln Project, a never-Trump “Republican” outfit whose pathetic anti-GOP stunts and scandals have discredited it everywhere but in the mainstream media, where it remains a reliable source for smears of the modern-day Republican party as fascistic. Stuart took his familiar act to Tuesday’s edition of Amanpour & Co., which airs on PBS. Host…

The PBS current affairs program Amanpour & Co. on Thursday hosted the invariably self-assured long-time New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who unleashed some harsh criticism of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

October 15th, 2023 8:26 AM

On the newest episode of tax-supported PBS’s notorious left-wing series Frontline, they spent two hours obsessing over Elon Musk's Twitter takeover.

Two shows that air on tax-funded PBS, the NewsHour and Amanpour & Co., invited journalist and Amanpour regular Walter Isaacson to discuss his new biography of entrepreneur Elon Musk who now owns X (formerly Twitter).

Another month, another testy interview on Amanpour & Co. (which airs on CNN International and tax-funded PBS) between journalist Walter Isaacson and a conservative figure.
