FOUL AIR: NPR Talk Show Boosts Author Who Wants to 'Eliminate' Dissent
When you're a journalist writing books panicking people on the climate and demanding a government-ordered end to fossil fuels, you can count on taxpayer-funded public broadcasting to help you push your radical agenda.

Column: NPR Drops Bombs on the 'Hard Right Republicans In Congress'
My maxim on the media’s use of ideological labeling is “The epic political battles of our time are between the ultraconservatives and the nonpartisans.” Journalists see Republicans as a whole as ultraconservative, or as a wholly owned subsidiary of the ultraconservatives.

Column: Radical Raskin's 'Unthinkable' Suicide Milking
As the establishment media solemnly marked January 6 with all of the rehearsed Democrat talking points about democracy hanging by a thread, one man best represents the liberal media’s relentless political marketing. It’s radical Rep. Jamie Raskin, who has a new book that came out two days before the anniversary called Unthinkable, conflating the Capitol riot with the suicide of his…
NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Somehow 'Yacht Rock' Is Racist
As we wrap up 2021, it's time for a little cultural talk on the NewsBusters Podcast. NPR recently suggested the Beatles signified how the rock band was a white-male institution.

NPR 'Fresh Air' Offers Obsequious Tongue Bath to Nikole-Hannah Jones
NPR offers a daily talk show called Fresh Air out of WHYY-FM in Philadelphia. Its leftist tilt is legendary, and the legend was strongly underlined on Wednesday with an incredibly servile interview with Nikole Hannah-Jones, organizer of the "1619 Project" agitprop at The New York Times. There are 15 questions offered over 36 minutes, and every single one of them is like a…
