Nevada: GOP-Bashing Reporter Skips Disclosing His Book Help to Dems

November 9th, 2014 7:57 PM
One of the Republican winners in Nevada on Tuesday was Attorney General-elect Adam Laxalt, the 34-year-old grandson of former Sen. Paul Laxalt, 91. This came despite the local media favoring his Democratic opponent, Ross Miller. Ciara Matthews at NevadaWatchdog.org reported that the state’s top political reporter, Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun, was “instrumental” in helping Miller’s dad write…

WashPost Betrays Its Tilt on Nevada's 'Biggest Corporate Tax Giveaway'

September 11th, 2014 1:13 PM
In today’s Biased Headlines department, see today’s Reid Wilson report on the Washington Post website from Wednesday: “Nevada is about to pass the biggest corporate tax giveaway in its history.” But has the Post recently described welfare programs or food stamps as a "giveaway"? It doesn't look like it.

Wasserman Schultz Says Nevada Governor Didn't Implement an Obamacare E

July 26th, 2014 11:58 AM
It seems that Democratic National Committee chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz has herself programmed to automatically criticize any Republican governor in the U.S. for refusing to implement a state Obamacare exchange. Wasserman Schultz made that contention on Tuesday about Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval. She did so on Nevada's "Ralston Reports," a TV program hosted by Jon Ralston, whose…

'Republican' May 'Make History' as First Transgender State Lawmaker

July 18th, 2014 8:43 PM
The gay newspaper The Washington Blade recently carried this odd headline: “Trans Republican could make history in Nevada" as the first gender-confused state legislator. Reporter Chris Johnson didn’t note that the R-word sounds odd for a “trans woman” who worked for the John Kerry for President campaign in Florida in 2004, but he did tout all the gay-left agenda items Scott’s pushed:

Rory Reid Slams BLM as 'Losers' on Nevada TV

April 15th, 2014 9:40 PM
Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry's son, Rory Reid,  thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over…

MSNBC Tags Liberal Republican Party Defector as 'Conservative,' But Sh

January 31st, 2014 1:50 PM
On Thursday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, substitute host Ari Melber tried to hype former Nevada Lieutenant Governor Sue Wagner, who left office almost 20 years ago, as a "conservative" who recently left the Republican Party because of the Tea Party. But, as she appeared as a guest, Wagner quickly identified herself as having been "somewhat liberal my entire life," and…

Not Establishment Press News: Reid Says Obamacare Just a Step Toward S

August 11th, 2013 11:23 PM
Though many of us have known a fundamental truth about Obamacare for several years, the fact that Harry Reid admitted to the truth is important. How important? So important that despite plenty of bloggers and other new media outlets taking note of it, the Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post (the latest stories here and here are from before Reid made his admission on Friday…

Name That Party: See How AP Converted Nev. Story on Democratic Lawmake

January 20th, 2013 11:59 PM
It should surprise no one that the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, often first learns of stories when other outlets break them. When this occurs with a story about a Democratic Party politician in trouble, we get to see how the self-described "essential global news network" revises (i.e., cleans up) the outlet's original content to make it render as little damage as possible…

Reno Paper: 'Fluke Takes Center Stage' to Speak to 'About 10 People

October 21st, 2012 8:51 AM
Saturday evening, via Emerson Marcus and with the Associated Press contributing, the Reno Gazette-Journal, which I hope doesn't try to describe itself as a family newspaper, published an irony-free a 500-word story (HT to a NewBusters tipster) on an appearance by Sandra Fluke earlier in the day "in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno." You can't make this stuff up. The…

New York Times reporters Trip Gabriel (pictured right) and Ashley Parker, who follow Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, respectively, teamed up for Saturday’s report from Las Vegas, “Republican Candidates Wrangle Over Nevada," rushing to Obama’s aide after a mild attack by Mitt Romney, and accused conservatives of carrying a “caricature” image of lefty donor George Soros.

Bozell Column: Nearly Invisible Harry Reid

October 20th, 2010 8:00 AM
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid finally appeared in a debate on October 14 in Las Vegas with his Republican opponent, Sharron Angle. The appearance might come as a surprise to consumers of the national media. While Angle has been pounded relentlessly by national media outlets as being both dangerously radical and ridiculous, Reid has been left alone, and untouched. But what about Harry? He’…

Nevada Newspaper Smears Sharron Angle With Classic Guilt By Associatio

July 21st, 2010 5:24 PM
Here's a slimy journalistic tactic with which most conservatives are all too familiar: note that two people or groups agree on one point, and then suggest that consequently they must agree on all other points. Chris Matthews (among many others) used this tactic to smear Tea Parties as tantamount to militia groups - both share a distaste for big government, therefore they must agree on all other…

Two NYT Reporters Tar Nevada GOP Candidate Sharron Angle: "Far-Right

June 12th, 2010 8:45 AM
Meet the "so extreme," "far-right conservative" Sharron Angle, who won the Nevada Senate primary on Tuesday and will face Democrat Harry Reid in the fall. Those quotes aren't from Daily Kos or even a New York Times columnist, but from two of the Times's political reporters, Jennifer Steinhauer and Jackie Calmes.(This post is based on two items previously posted on Times Watch.) Reporter Jennifer…
