Having It Both Ways on the Pandemic
WASHINGTON -- I have always thought that there was something very odd about this COVID pandemic. From start to finish, it has been entoiled in claims of politics. The Democrats murmured against what dark doings President Donald Trump was up to at the pandemic's outset. Then, when the Democrats took power in Washington, the Republicans began to murmur against what dark doings the Democrats were…
Column: CBS Is Not 'Going Rogue' on January 6
The partisans running the House January 6 Committee would like you to believe there’s a controversy over an ex-Republican coming out with his own “unauthorized” January 6 book the day before their last scheduled committee hearing. Would your average cynical reporter buy this “going rogue” story line? Or does it look conveniently designed to put the Pelosi-picked panel back in the headlines?…
NEW NewsBusters Podcast: '60 Minutes' Acts as News Butler for Biden
CBS journalist Scott Pelley was as firm as jelly in his 60 Minutes interview with President Biden. His "questions" were often like "what did you think?" and "I wonder why you think that is." Kevin Tober joins the show to analyze all of the sappy passages that sound like the White House wrote them.
'60 Minutes' Is Kinder to Murderous Iran Regime than Republicans
Playing second fiddle to Scott Pelley’s gag-inducing interview with President Biden on Sunday’s 60 Minutes, CBS journalist Lesley Stahl sat down with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and treated him with more respect and reverence than the show usually affords to American Republicans. Stahl willingly subjected herself to Iran’s oppressive customs for women and had the gall to suggest…
State-Run TV: 60 Minutes Drools Over Biden in Syrupy Interview
On Sunday night, President Joe Biden sat down for an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes anchor Scott Pelley. From the very start, it was clear why Biden chose Pelley to conduct his first sit-down interview in months. Right out of the gate and until the last minute, Pelley gushed and sucked up to Biden in embarrassing fashion.
Barack Obama: Still a Racial Incendiary
Former President Barack Obama recently gave a speech in which he attacked the critics of “identity politics.” At the June Copenhagen Democracy Summit Obama said: “I have little sympathy for reactionaries who cynically condemn identity politics or cancel culture when really all they're doing is trying to preserve existing privilege or excuse entrenched injustice, or bigotry. I mean, the…
CNN Says Trump's Crimes Make Nixon's 'Look Like Parking Violations'

NYT’s Lara Logan Hit Reveals What Mainstream Journalists Must Believe
The New York Times ran a hit piece on former CBS journalist Lara Logan: “Former Star At CBS News Follows Path To Far Right.” After introducing Logan as someone who had “reached the heights of American journalism….as the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News,” he lamented “today Ms. Logan cuts a far different figure in American media. Instead of on national news…
CRINGE: CBS Compared Ukraine’s Independence to Kid Running Away
Well that didn’t age well. Over 30 years ago, CBS compared newly independent states in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union to annoying brats running away from home. Of course, the bizarre commentary came from the late Andy Rooney. Rooney began, “Who would have thought a year ago that the 15 states in the Soviet Union would decide to split up?”
Shameful 60 Minutes Fails to Admit Hunter Laptop Story Is True
The corrupt 60 Minutes on CBS won’t correct the record. Last week, The New York Times belatedly admitted that the Hunter Biden laptop story was, in fact, real. Media outlets that shamefully pushed Democratic talking points that the blockbuster story was “Russian disinformation” need to correct the record and apologize.
Stahl to Trump In 2020: Hunter Biden Laptop Emails 'Can't be Verified'
In light of the very belated admission by the New York Times that the Hunter Biden laptop and the emails on it are authentic, it is a good time to watch how CBS's Lesley Stahl vociferously denied it could be verified during an October 2020 60 Minutes interview with President Donald Trump.
Editor’s Pick: Free Beacon on Media Ignoring GOP ‘Making History’
On Monday, Washington Free Beacon senior writer Andrew Stiles reported on the leftist media phenomenon of constantly swooning over Democrats “making history” on the diversity front while steadfastly ignoring the same strides for Republicans. As an example, he cited how “This weekend’s episode of 60 Minutes included a segment on Pete Buttigieg” and hailed him as “the first openly gay cabinet…
The Media’s Most Outrageous Lies of 2021
