Go Figure: Nets Treat ‘Explosive,’ ‘Staggering’ Atlantic Story as Fact

September 4th, 2020 2:58 PM

On Friday morning, the “big three” broadcast network newscasts treated the anonymously sourced Atlantic piece claiming President Trump called fallen U.S. soldiers “losers” and “suckers” as fact, huffing about how “explosive,” “staggering,” and “stinging” the allegations were that have put the President on “…


Nets Label Victim But Won't Call Antifa Murder Suspect 'Left-Wing'

September 4th, 2020 12:22 PM

It’s a sickening double standard when the media won’t call out the politics of a murder suspect but will instead eagerly politicize the victim he admitted to killing. On Friday morning, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today repeatedly labeled the man shot and killed by an Antifa protester in Portland last weekend as “right-wing” and a “Trump supporter.” But no such…


NY Times Man Whines on NBC: They Never Dug Deep Enough on Trump-Russia

August 31st, 2020 5:33 PM

The conservative half of the country might suggest the liberal press beat the dead horse of the Trump-and-Russia issue into a fine paste.

August 28th, 2020 4:25 PM

Morning Joe Can't Admit: Kamala Was Blah-Mala

August 20th, 2020 7:40 AM

Kamala Harris laid an egg last night. In Morning Joe's opening segment, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist couldn't really find any words of praise for Harris' acceptance speech at the DNC convention. They turned to a Quibi commentator (and NBC News alum) Shawna Thomas instead, and the best she could come up with was to say that Harris did "an admirable job" of reintroducing…

August 19th, 2020 2:34 PM

COVER-UP: Morning Joe Bulldozes Biden's 'Junkie' Comments

August 7th, 2020 10:53 AM

It must be nice to be a Democrat in today’s politics, knowing that every single stupid thing you say will be conveniently bulldozed over by your leftist media allies before it can hurt you, while the comments of your opponents will be blown up to magnificent proportions. Joe Biden was the latest Democrat to receive this service from the compliant press on Friday, as MSNBC's Morning Joe…

Sleazy Morning Joe: Don't Dare Question Obama Politicizing a Funeral!

August 1st, 2020 12:00 PM

Think back to when you last went to a funeral, do you remember speakers at that solemn service giving political speeches, talking about ending the filibuster?

MSNBC's Morning Joe touted a variety of clips Friday morning of the former president exploiting what was supposed to be a funeral for Congressman John Lewis, using…
