April 18th, 2015 4:59 PM
Time.com's Zeke Miller tweeted yesterday that a "reporter" asked recently declared presidential candidate Marco Rubio of Florida the following question: "Is 43 old enough to be president?" Meanwhile, two weeks ago, a column at Time.com claimed that Hillary Clinton is "biologically primed to be a leader." Seriously.
Since he either can't or won't tell us…

The 2015 edition of the Time’s 100 most influential people was released Thursday and, not surprisingly, featured an entry on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

February 10th, 2015 3:28 PM
In a new book, Obama 2008 campaign manager and longtime Obama adviser David Axelrod reveals that, in the words of Zeke J. Miller at Time.com, "Barack Obama misled Americans for his own political benefit when he claimed in the 2008 election to oppose same sex marriage for religious reasons."

On Monday afternoon, CNN’s Wolf covered the controversy surrounding President Obama’s playing of golf on a Hawaii golf course that forced an Army couple about to be married there to move their wedding during which CNN’s Chris Moody called the optics of the move “hilariously bad.”

Will Media Report How Obama Now Sees America As, Well, 'Unique'?
September 17th, 2014 3:29 PM
President Obama cited American exceptionalism at least ten times in his speech at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa today.
Early in his administration, Obama went out of his way to downplay the nature of U.S. exceptionalism, claiming that it was really no different than how any other nation's citizens saw their own country's uniqueness. So his speechwriters knew better than to use that…
TIME's Zeke Miller Notes Amusing 'All Hope Is Lost' Democrat Fundraisi
May 31st, 2014 8:57 AM
We just had to pass this on for your amusement. Time magazine's Zeke Miller has a piece documenting House Democrats' overwrought, melodramatic fundraising emails. You can check them out here.
As you read through them, you realize these sort of emails are ripe for late-night comedy and maybe for snarky treatment on shows like Morning Joe or The Five. Of course, as Miller…
CNN Admits ObamaCare 'Still a Liability,' But Hypes 'Major Milestone
March 18th, 2014 6:52 PM
In a refreshing change of pace, CNN's John King skeptically wondered on Tuesday's New Day about the White House touting the five million "enrollments" in ObamaCare: "They wanted to get the seven million by March 31 – unlikely they'll get there....How important are the next couple of weeks, and...if they get to six, can they spin that as a success, or is this…
Time Writers Act as Stenographers for Obama; Bury Fact Cash-Strapped D
October 1st, 2013 3:55 PM
Alex Rogers and Zeke Miller of Time magazine dutifully hacked out a 16-paragraph item on President Obama's complaint this afternoon that Republicans were the cause of the government shutdown. It was your typical, garden variety bias-by-stenography.
Only at the very end of their article did Rogers and Miller mention that the Democratic National Committee is having a fundraising field day…
Time Magazine Attacks 'Once-Esteemed' Conservative Think Tank Heritage
September 30th, 2013 1:05 PM
In its 40-year history, the liberal media never really cared for the Heritage Foundation. But now that the think tank has been more assertive in its engagement of Capitol Hill, the liberal media are rewriting history to depict the move as something that is threatening the organization's respectability inside the Beltway. In July, I noted the Wall Street Journal's stab at the concern-…
TIME Writer Presents One-Sided Push For Earmarks, Backroom Deals
August 6th, 2013 4:56 PM
Wouldn’t it be great if Congress reinstated earmarks and started legislating from behind closed doors? That was the argument pushed by political reporter Zeke Miller in a Tuesday article on TIME.com’s Swampland page entitled “The Bipartisan Call to Bring Back the Smoke-Filled Room.” Miller presented a thoroughly one-sided view of the subject, refusing to…
Time.com Still Fawning Over Hillary Clinton Twitter Account While Igno
June 11th, 2013 3:48 PM
Yesterday, my colleague Matt Vespa noted how Time writer (and former BuzzFeeder) Zeke Miller had room to fawn over Hillary Clinton setting up a Twitter account, yet no space to mention allegations of widespread drug and prostitution use by her security detail when she was Secretary of State.
Checking back at Time.com today and searching for "State Department," I found that the…
'Used Up, Thrown Away': Obama Campaign Staffers on Receiving End of Sh
January 16th, 2013 8:54 AM
It's pretty safe to say that a Monday evening story appearing at Buzzfeed which should thoroughly embarrass President Obama will continue to be ignored or seriously downplayed by the Associated Press, (aka the Administration's Press), the New York Times, the TV networks, and most of the rest of the establishment press. Longtime media followers will also recognize the story as the…
Obama 'Major Address' Panned by Fans in the Press; AP Barely Musters E
June 14th, 2012 11:31 PM
If you're starting to lose Jonathan Alter, reporters at Politico, and other left-leaning outlets, you're starting to get into trouble. Double that if you can't even get Julie Pace at the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, to muster more than eight paragraphs relating to a 53-minute speech pre-positioned as a "major address."
Hunter Walker has compiled…
