One Last Time: Bye-Bye Tom Brokaw!

On Friday, Tom Brokaw formally retired from NBC News. If you are confused it’s because he already had one retirement when he vacated the NBC Nightly News anchor chair for Brian Williams back in 2004. But like a college professor who awkwardly still hung out with kids decades younger than him he hung around the NBC offices in an Anchor Emeritus role. We here at NewsBusters offer on…

Hollywood to Honor ‘Hanoi Jane’ Fonda for ‘Unrelenting Activism’

Just when I hoped that maybe, with a new administration and continuing pandemic, Hollywood might be a little less self-aggrandizing and political this year, the Golden Globes went and burst my naïve bubble.

Column: Susan Rice and the Fact-Checker Farce

Seeing Susan Rice at the White House podium in 2021, a friend of mine suggested Rice has never been “fact-checked.” Well, that can’t be, I thought. Then I went to the PolitiFact website, which strangely had a Susan Rice page....but not a single “fact check” of Rice, even though PolitiFact was founded in 2007 and Rice worked for Obama from 2009 to 2017.

Daily Doocy: FNC Reporter Questions WH on FEMA, Lefty Violence, Trial

With former National Security Adviser-turned-Domestic Policy Council head Susan Rice appearing at Tuesday’s White House press briefing, the mood was one of ebullience as the liberal press corps felt at home with key allies as Rice and Press Secretary Jen Psaki talked about creating an America based on “equity” to atone for its life of sin. But amidst all the softballs, Fox News White…

CBS Bashes Florida’s DeSantis for Planning Ahead With Vaccine Doses

Earlier this month, CBS Evening News bashed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) because he was moving doses of the coronavirus vaccine from inefficient hospitals to more efficient ones. You know being responsible with what he was given. Well, CBS was back at it again on Tuesday as they chided him for planning ahead and holding on to doses to make sure elderly residence could get their…

PBS Reporter Yamiche Alcindor Hypes Media Pushing for 'Radical Change'

PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor underlined how journalism and activism mix heavily in her work in a Martin Luther King Day speech via Zoom to several colleges in Michigan. She said everyone must "bend the moral arc toward justice. And it needs to be bent and molded continuously for anyone to get any sort of justice at all."

Is Modern Media More Biased Than Before?

There is a perception, supported by many surveys, that what passes for contemporary journalism is more biased, even propagandistic, than in earlier times. One of the definitions of "journalism" on Dictionary.com will affirm that attitude for many: "writing that reflects superficial thought and research, a popular slant, and hurried composition..." Journalism has, in fact, been infected by bias…

NBC Warns Reopening States Kills, Gawks at Restaurants Shutting Down

If we’ve learned anything about the news media during the pandemic, it’s that they care more about gawking at people on TV instead of genuine, unvarnished compassion for those suffering (especially business owners). And that notion was quite evident on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News when, out of one side of their mouth, the network decried states for deciding to reopen. And with…

Tucker Truth-Bomb: CNN, Media Lefties Want to See FNC Shut Down

During his Monday night monologue, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson stated the blunt, honest truth that, from CNN to The Washington Post, many in the liberal media see it as their life’s mission to not only shut down Fox News (and we would add like-minded outlets), but send every last person who worked there to the unemployment lines.

'Transphobic' Rowling Roasted After News of Harry Potter TV Series

Cancel culture has thrown author J.K. Rowling into the Slytherin House once again. Back in June 2020, Rowling made a comment that only women menstruate and now with news of a potential Harry Potter TV series, fans went off with their “TERF” (trans exclusionary radical feminist) name-calling. Rowling is totally unwoke. So, she's...#canceled

BLACKOUT: Latino Nets Ignore Push to Recall CA Governor Newsom

The media proved, once again, that they are the public relations arm of the Democrat Party. This time, Spanish-language media did the deed via its total blackout of the campaign to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) due to his botched response to the COVID-19 crisis.

CBS's Gayle King: 'CBS Hasn't Handled' Sex Allegations Very Well

CBS has been, once again, hit with allegations of sexism, this time at the Philadelphia affiliate. And CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King isn’t happy with her network, saying, “CBS hasn’t handled” the issue well in general.

MSNBC Shills Bemoan Filibuster Blocking Biden Agenda

Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC anchors and correspondents kept wailing about the Senate filibuster power preventing President Biden and Democrats from implementing a radical left-wing agenda. Despite bipartisan opposition to doing away with the parliamentary procedure, pundits on the leftist cable channel insisted that it must be ended in order to shove through their preferred policies.…
