Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, Paul Ryan…Barack Obama?
November 25th, 2016 9:36 PM
It’s fair to say that from 2007 through 2010, the mere words “Speaker Pelosi” gave many NewsBusters readers the willies. If some lefty activists and enough voters get their way, you’ll have the chance to hear a lot of “Speaker Obama.” On Wednesday, Ben Mathis-Lilley of Slate discussed and endorsed a Change.org petition calling on Barack Obama to run for the…
Press Lionizes Michelle Obama's Hypocritical Critiques of Trump
October 29th, 2016 8:00 PM
The press, as would be expected, is swallowing Michelle Obama's pose as being intensely offended by the alleged offenses of Donald and as a passionate defender of Hillary Clinton, showering praise on her as "Hillary's secret weapon" at seemingly every turn.
What a crock. Mrs. Obama has directly criticized the Clintons' conduct as First Family and its matriarch; instead of…
As Hillary Has Black Turnout Woes, Black Trump Spox Baffles the Media
October 25th, 2016 10:16 PM
On Sunday, Hillary Campaign Manager Robby Mook dodged a question from Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union about indications that black turnout for the former Secretary of State in North Carolina during early voting has not been strong. Meanwhile, a black Trump supporter, who the press seems to believe can easily be turned into an object of ridicule, continues to run circles around them in…
PolitiFact Wrong: Both Obamas Attacked Hillary During '08 Campaign
October 19th, 2016 3:20 PM
Today's installment of Stupid Fact Checks again goes after Politifact, this time on two items in one "fact check." First, the web site's Louis Jacobson claims that Michelle Obama couldn't possibly have been talking about the Clintons on August 12, 2007 when she told an audience about the importance of a First Family serving as a "role model" in the White House. It…
NYT Again Exposes Speech-Stifling PC Culture on College Campus, on A1
August 27th, 2016 2:32 PM
The New York Times pro-Hillary campaign coverage leaves much to be desired, but the paper has been decent recently on at least one issue important to conservatives: Free speech on college campus. Saturday’s off-lead story covered the surprisingly strong welcome letter the University of Chicago sent to its incoming students: “University of Chicago Rebels Against Moves to Stifle Speech…
NBC Hypes GOP ‘Civil War,’ Continues to Ignore Major Firings at DNC
August 3rd, 2016 11:39 AM
For the second day in a row, NBC on Wednesday ignored the high level firings at the Democratic National Committee. Politico hyped it as “heads roll at the DNC.” Yet, the four hour-long Today show found no time for it. Instead, reporter Hallie Jackson trumpeted a “civil war” within the Republican Party.

Victim of Pro-Abort Vandalism: Shows 'Growing Intolerance on the Left'
February 5th, 2016 2:49 PM
On Sunday night, pro-life activist Jill Stanek returned to her home in the Chicago suburbs to find a Target bag with a cinder block had been thrown through her windown. Taped to the cinder block was a note saying "STOP YOUR PRO-LIFE B---S---."
In an interview with NewsBusters (she used to blog for NB), Stanek agreed "we see growing intolerance on the Left for any…
AP Acts As If Illinois's Chronic Vendor Delinquency Is Something New
January 31st, 2016 11:36 PM
A Sunday morning report by Associated Press political writer John O'Connor acts as if the the sordid history of fiscal irresponsibility in the State of Illinois is a new development brought on by a stubborn Republican governor in just the past seven months.
What hogwash. The state has had a large backlog of delinquent unpaid bills for a decade, if not longer. Five years ago, a…
CNN's Pereira: Opponents of Boy in Girls' Locker Room 'Need Education'
November 3rd, 2015 8:03 PM
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, after a report about an Illinois school district under pressure to allow a transgender student to use a girls' locker room, co-host Michaela Pereira complained that it was "frustrating" that the transgender student in question had supposedly not been consulted enough in the matter.
After co-host Chris Cuomo recalled the argument by parents…
Why Is the Press So Quiet About Ill. Lottery Winners Not Getting Paid?
August 31st, 2015 11:37 PM
Silly me. I really thought that every state's lottery operation was walled off from the rest of its finances. They collect bets, pay out winnings and administrative costs, and turn over the profits to general fund. End of discussion. No muss, no fuss. Right?
In Illinois, based on recent developments, we know that's obviously not the case — leading me to wonder how many other states…
Networks Blame Guns for Violent Fourth of July Weekend in Chicago
July 7th, 2015 12:36 AM
While it may have been surprising that all three broadcast networks covered on Monday evening the deadly violence in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend, what wasn’t surprising was that they looked to blame guns for the violence and advanced the cause of more gun control (as opposed to gang violence or the need for better policing).

Kudos to the Daily Beast for spotlighting an interesting story that most of the rest of the liberal media will no doubt ignore.
