Hmmm. So over there at my old stomping grounds at CNN, my own former Pennsylvania United States Senator Rick Santorum and my former CNN colleague Don Lemon got into a dust-up.

NYT Shields Dems From GOP 'Culture Assault,' Assumes 'Systemic Racism'

New York Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse continued to protect Democrats against Republicans in Saturday’s edition, “Republicans Amplify Culture-War Issues In Bid to Regain Power.” (Um, isn’t the point of electoral politics to gain power?)

MSNBC Contributor: I Have to Wipe 'Stink' of Tucker Carlson Out of Air

Back in 2006, when Venezuela's communist dictator Hugo Chavez took the UN podium, he claimed, in an allusion to the Devil, to still smell the "sulphur" from the previous day, when then-President George W. Bush had spoken. In a reprise of Chavez's clownish act, MSNBC contributor Fernand Amandi, after viewing a Tucker Carlson clip that Tiffany Cross ran on her MSNBC show this morning,…

On PBS, Brooks Says Election Laws Are a 'Horrific Look' for the GOP

On Friday's PBS NewsHour, pseudoconservative panelist David Brooks guessed the new election laws being passed won't do much to tamp down voting, that they're a "Potemkin set of laws," but they're a "horrific look" for Republicans given America's history on civil rights. Anchor Judy Woodruff cued up Jonathan Capehart to insist they're a conspiracy to disenfranchise…

NEW NewsBusters Podcast: DeSantis Causes Media Madness on Fox News

On the Friday NewsBusters Podcast, we focus again on how the media are treating election-integrity bills. Now the focus has turned to Florida, as Gov. Ron DeSantis faux-signed Florida's new election law on Fox & Friends Thursday morning, giving Fox News exclusive access to the event, which infuriated the liberal media. But they were also going to dismiss the law as throwing "…

Reid Loves Party-Swapping Crist: You're ‘Too Nice’ for 'Mean' Florida

Figuring out what Charlie Crist believes is tough. He’s been a conservative Republican, a moderate Republican, an independent, a moderate Democrat and, now, a liberal Democrat. But far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid has bought into the hype on the politician, whatever he is now. Talking to him on Thursday night, Reid’s only concern was whether the “nice” Democrat was any match for the “mean,” “far-…

Washington Times Story on Pelosi Cites 'Systemic Racism' as Fact

The Washington Times offers a more conservative take on national politics, but we've heard from conservative readers who are not fond of Thursday's front-page item headlined "Pelosi silent on father's complicity in racism." The story is written in a way that seems to assert that America's allegedly persistent "systemic racism" is a fact.

NARAL Refers to Women as ‘Birthing Persons’, Gets SLAMMED On Twitter

It’s hard to believe, but America’s largest pro-abortion lobby has actually found a way to demean women and motherhood even more than by convincing them to kill their children. The leftists of NARAL are now referring to women as “birthing persons” in order to keep up with our ever-wokening society, and conservatives are giving them a hard time for it.
