Unbiased? 18 of 20 Top Newspapers Push Gun Control in Editorials

January 22nd, 2013 10:21 AM
At one time, newspapers were America’s source for news and current events. Today it’s a completely different story. While President Obama has declared a push to ban or limit types of guns, the nation’s major newspapers are nearly unanimous in their support of gun control. The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and other most-popular papers led the list. The…

AP Seems Appalled (and Concerned) That Romney Is Campaigning in Minn

October 31st, 2012 8:46 PM
I heard Rush Limbaugh comment on this report from the Associated Press's Thomas Beaumont and Brian Bakst ("Romney, GOP suddenly plunging onto Democratic turf") this afternoon on his program. This evening, having read the whole, I agree with him (which of course often happens) that the AP writer are very upset that GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney and his campaign are going…

For Not Having 'Members,' the New Party With Which Obama Was Associate

June 9th, 2012 12:21 PM
At National Review (here and here), Stanley Kurtz has proven beyond doubt that Barack Obama sought the far-left New Party's endorsement in 1996. In the process, he has rendered a central claim made by the Obama campaign at its "Fight the Smears" web site in 2008 ("Barack Did Not Seek New Party Endorsement") and swallowed whole by the gullible establishment press utterly…

StarTribune: 'Voters Weathering Economic Downturn Sticking With Obama

September 25th, 2011 6:51 PM
Forget those polls.  In the mainstream media, there's always good news for President Barack Obama.  So it is on the Minneapolis StarTribune's Web site.  An Associated Press article appears under the headline "Voters weathering economic downturn sticking with Obama — because they like him" and includes this heartening news: People who have lost their jobs…

Minn. Shutdown Follow-up: State Demanding MillerCoors Pull Product Ove

July 14th, 2011 6:10 PM
Last night (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), I noted that the State of Minnesota, where the government is shut down but spokesman for the Department of Public Safety Doug Neville is somehow still working, is demanding that MillerCoors pull its products from Gopher State store shelves within days, and identified a number of questions non-inquisitive Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Eric Roper…

Star Tribune Reporter Fails to Ask Obvious Questions in Minn. Shutdown

July 13th, 2011 9:48 PM
Well, I guess it's getting serious now in the melodrama known as the Minnesota state government shutdown. If the Gopher State shutdown goes on much longer, hundreds of bars and restaurants will lose their ability to serve alcohol because they can't renew their liquor licenses. Worse, as reported by Eric Roper at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, MillerCoors, whose "brand license…

Tearful Coverage for Rep. Ellison

March 11th, 2011 3:46 PM
Amid the media's vilification of Rep. Peter King, their continuing coverage of Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison's "tearful struggle" stands in stark contrast. "Amid the raw feelings of Thursday's House hearings on domestic Islamic radicalization, Rep. Keith Ellison could not fight back the tears" as he recounted a story about Mohammed Salman Hamdani. Rep.…

Newspaper Circ Drops Another 5%; WSJ Is Sole Meaningful Gainer

October 31st, 2010 9:02 AM
This past week, we learned that it was another year, another dive for newspaper circulations: 5% for dailies, and 4.5% on Sundays, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations. That's not as bad as some past declines, but it's still going the wrong way. As usual, they'll blame the Internet, and reject the possibility that persistent, pervasive bias and blind adherence to…

NFL Discovers Character Matters

April 27th, 2010 10:14 AM
The 2010 NFL draft showed that it's not enough to be a star football player anymore. Character counts now too. Tim Tebow, and the Denver Bronco's drafting him as first-round pick, was the big story out of the NFL draft. Despite a phenomenal college career in which he won the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore, led the Florida Gators to two national championships, and lived out his Christian…

Rep. Michele Bachmann: 'I’m Certainly Not Going to Fear the Likes of

October 6th, 2009 3:48 PM
Over the past two years, MSNBC - the so-called "place for politics" has had a fascination with the congresswoman from Minnesota's Sixth District. And some of those attacks have been against her family, others borderline misogynistic. However, GOP Rep. Michelle Bachmann told a group of conservative bloggers at The Heritage Foundation on Oct. 6 she really wasn't concerned about MSNBC,…

Double Standard: Lefty Media Now Targeting GOP Congresswoman's Son

August 13th, 2009 2:46 PM
Remember when the children of public figures were off-limits in the day-to-day hand-to-hand combat of political warfare? It's a rule that didn't just applied to the underage children of politicians, but the adult children. Witness the 2008 suspension of MSNBC's David Shuster for suggesting then-presidential contender Hillary Clinton's 28-year-old daughter Chelsea Clinton was being "pimped…

Fox News Host Gretchen Carlson: Government Unfairly Shutdown My Parent

June 10th, 2009 9:45 AM
Many have claimed the federal government was playing fast and loose with the rules surrounding its takeover of General Motors and the circumstances surrounding the selection of which dealerships would remain open and those that wouldn't. Fox News' Gretchen Carlson came forward with evidence of this through a personal account of dealership closings. Carlson, a co-host on the Fox News Channel's…

Paper At Last Finds Unions Hurt Business, When it's THEIR Business

February 21st, 2009 6:46 AM
The Minneapolis Star Tribune is often called the "Red Star" Tribune by residents of Minneapolis for its long-time, virulently left-wing outlook. Many has been the time when the editorial board of the Star Trib has carried water for political candidates shilling for big labor. The STrib endorsed Obama for president for his supposed fiscal responsibility as well as his focus on the working classes…

Minn. StarTribune Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

January 15th, 2009 10:44 PM
Many in the Minneapolis area call the paper the RedStarTribune for its often overbearing leftist point of view, but whatever the case of its editorial direction the paper itself is headed for court to file for bankruptcy. And this is another one of the nation's largest papers looking to go belly up. The StarTrib (or Strib as its also called) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Thursday.
