PBS Runs Down GOP Candidates on 'Slavery' Curriculum, Transgender Kids

The taxpayer-supported PBS NewsHour program caught up to the second Republican presidential debate on Thursday evening and predictably characterized it as a sad mess. One of the paper’s most Republican-hostile reporters, White House correspondent Laura Barron-Lopez, pounced on some of the Republican responses and fact-checked them after the fact, in keeping with the show’s progressive…

Scarborough Gaffe: 80 Is Too Old To Be Campaign Aide, But President?

On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough suggests that being 80 is too old to be a competent worker on Joe Biden's campaign. He failed to recognize the implication. If 80's too old to be a campaign worker, it's way too old for someone, like Biden, to run the country!

CBS 'News' Airs Robert Reich Rant Ending with Vote-Democrat Appeal

Clearly, the Democrats and the networks -- and we repeat ourselves -- are a little bitter than the latest potential government shutdown was averted. CBS Sunday Morning aired a ranty editorial from socialist economist Robert Reich -- Bill Clinton's diminutive Secretary of Labor. Reich attacked "MAGA extremists" and ended with an appeal to Vote for Democrats.

MSNBC Host Alicia Menendez: DUH, I Won't Be Covering Daddy's Scandal

This is what happens when you let Democrat family members host programs. On Saturday night MSNBC American Voices host Alicia Menendez addressed the indictment of her father, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey), making the obvious point that she wouldn't be commenting  or reporting on the case, but assured everyone that NBC would “aggressively” cover the story.

Snobby Deutch: Trump Only Cares About Us Elites -- Not Tupelo Bumpkins

On Morning Joe, elitist snob Donny Deutsch says that Donald Trump cares about his standing with people like him, but that has been lost and now he only has the respect of people in Tupelo, Mississippi.

WashPost on Trump's J-6 Judge: Reasonable, 'Coolheaded Natural Talent'

The Washington Post gushed over Trump's January 6 judge Tanya Chutkan, and we can guess it's in part because she's "developed a reputation for being more punitive than her peers" on January 6 defendants.

Univision Cheers Licenses For Illegals In Minnesota

Time and time again, Univision proves itself to be an immigration advocacy PAC with a broadcast license. And, as immigration advocacy organizations do, they cheer anything that erodes the distinctions between legal and illegal immigration.

MSNBC Dutifully Repeats Fire Alarm-Pulling Dem's Excuses

Saturday brought the simultaneously bizarre and outrageous development of New York Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulling the fire alarm in order to disrupt the House’s business as it eventually passed a 45-day continuing resolution to avert a government shutdown. Naturally, MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian accepted the statement that it was just an accident.

Networks Leaped to Live Coverage of Trump Impeachments, Yawn at Biden

It didn't escape notice that none of the networks offered live wall-to-wall coverage of the first hearing of the House impeachment inquiry. When they covered it later, they made a point of rallying for Biden. An impeachment inquiry into Trump was urgent and deserving news. A Biden inquiry is dismissed as garbage.

Defending ‘Joey From Scranton,’ Hating ‘Destructive’ Clarence Thomas

On the first day of the impeachment inquiry hearings into the Biden family scandals, ABC’s Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos advised his viewers it was “unprecedented” because it was the “first time we’ve ever had an impeachment inquiry absent evidence.” Meanwhile conservatives like Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Virginia were…

Is Bill Burr’s ‘Old Dads’ the Comedy Conservatives Crave?

Mainstream comics leave countless jokes on the table. Just consider the Biden administration, for starters. The material practically writes itself, from the president’s near-daily short circuits to VP Kamala Harris’ word salad speeches.

CBS Hypes Christian Activists Spreading Fossil Fuel Abolition 'Gospel'

CBS Saturday Morning correspondent Adam Yamaguchi took the idea that climate activism is a religion literally when he hyped activist and 2021 college graduate Elsa Barron’s efforts to “help spread the gospel” to the unconverted Evangelicals who are not onboard with the abolition of fossil fuels.

Maher, DeSantis Mock New York Times, Battle on Election Laws, Abortion

With the writers’ strike over, the late night comedy shows are back and first out of the gate on Friday was HBO Real Time host Bill Maher, who chose Florida Governor and GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis to be his first guest. The interview was typical Maher as the two teamed up to mock the New York Times, but Maher’s liberal atheism still came through as the two also…

FLASHBACK: The Media’s Long History of One-Sided Shutdown Coverage

Journalists’ shutdown playbook is straightforward: single out Republicans for blame; highlight “victims” of the shutdown to build public anger; and then claim Democrats won because they were the “grown-up” party.
