CNN, MSNBC Ignore Manhunt for Cop Killer As Other Nets Report
May 31st, 2018 8:15 PM
On Thursday morning, CNN and MSNBC pounced on their latest opportunity to ignore police violence-related stories that do not fit the narrative that cops mostly target black suspects for shootings and excessive force. In fact, there were two significant stories highlighted by ABC, CBS, and NBC morning shows which stand out as being ignored by the two liberal cable news networks.
CBS Frets About Tax Law’s Impact on Blue States, Skips Crazy Spending
February 7th, 2018 12:47 PM
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday whined about the impact that the new Republican tax law will have on blue states, singling out New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and California. Yet, incredibly, reporter Alex Wagner’s entire report managed to never mention that these states have the highest taxes in the country and are wildly in debt.
FLASHBACK: CNN Didn’t See GOP Winning in 2009 As Referendum on Obama
November 8th, 2017 3:47 PM
As journalists rejoice over Republican defeats in New Jersey and Virginia, hyping them as a referendum on President Trump, we at the MRC dove into our archives to remind them that just 8 years ago they said the exact opposite when the exact same situation happened to President Obama. The comparison couldn’t get more apples-to-apples: in both 2009 and 2017, the governorships of Virginia and New…
NY Times Celebrates Dem Sen. Bob Menendez, Back on the Hill
October 7th, 2017 1:58 PM
New York Times’ reporter Nick Corasiniti celebrated scandal-plagued Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on the top of the paper’s New York section Saturday: “After a Month in Court, Menendez Relishes a Trip to Washington – Senator Capitalizes On Break in His Trial.” Corasaniti's latest report is notably longer (1300 words) and more prominently placed than the dutiful pieces he's previously filed on…
Yawn: ABC, NBC Skip Start of Bribery Trial for Democratic Senator
September 6th, 2017 12:44 PM
While ABC and NBC on Wednesday continued their silence on the bribery trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, CBS This Morning allowed a scant 22 seconds. This was the first time all year CBS even mentioned the scandal swirling around the New Jersey politician. ABC and NBC haven’t touched the impending trial all year.
As Trial Looms, NYT Bizarrely Leaves Out Sen. Menendez’s Democratic ID
September 5th, 2017 10:43 AM
New York Times reporter Nick Corasaniti’s initial 1,200-word story on the upcoming trial of Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey on federal bribery charges had everything but one little detail: His Democratic Party affiliation. It’s a bad habit by the Times to ignore party affiliation of scandal-plagued Democrats, while eagerly, sometimes instantl, identifying Republican politicians in…
MSNBC's Reid Starts Regular Segment to Boost Dems in '18 Midterms
May 14th, 2017 7:15 PM
Far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid appears to be so excited about the possibility of Democrats taking control of Congress in the 2018 midterms, she's already started a segment to promote Democratic candidates almost a year and a half before the general election even takes place. On Sunday's AM Joy, Reid ended the show with the "first installment of a new segment" as she showed no subtlety in naming it…
Weeks Later, Press Finally Notes DNC Chair's Descent Into Profanity
April 23rd, 2017 10:39 PM
The combination of losing the House, and then the Senate, and then the presidency (to Donald Trump, of all people), while losing over 900 other legislative and executive branch seats in states throughout the land, has apparently led Tom Perez, the Democratic Party's new chairman, to believe that the party must curse its way back into power to properly motivate the faithful. Knowing that such a…
Press Ignores DNC Chair's Scream: 'You Didn't Win the Election!'
April 4th, 2017 10:53 PM
Searches at the Associated Press's main national site and at the New York Times indicate that the last newsworthy thing new Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez did was to demand, i.e., not "ask for," as the AP sanitized it, "resignation letters from all DNC (Democratic National Committee) staffers." This means that neither outlet considers Perez's repeated profanity-laced rants last…
Liberal Pundit: GOP Base Is ‘The Biggest Pool of Suckers in America’
November 5th, 2016 9:50 PM
New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who’s also Donald Trump’s transition director, was not a defendant in the Bridgegate trial, in which two of Christie’s allies were just convicted on all counts. Still, argues New York’s Chait, the verdicts “would shake up an ordinary presidential election,” since Trump himself has said that Christie “totally knew about” Bridgegate, and since the Donald has made…
Of Course: Press Blame Long Airport Lines on TSA ‘Budget Cuts’
May 5th, 2016 11:24 AM
Almost any time a government agency or program fails to perform, those involved complain that they don't have enough money to properly do their jobs. Unless the matter involves national defense, the press gullibly swallows their contentions. The Transportation Safety Administration is the latest case in point. Lines at airport security checkpoints are already getting noticeably longer, and we…

ABC, NBC Skip Midterms, Yet Go After Christie 'Lashing Out' at Heckler
October 29th, 2014 10:08 PM
ABC and NBC failed to cover the upcoming midterm elections during their Wednesday evening broadcasts, but instead devoted over three-and-a-half minutes to going after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) for confronting a protestor earlier in the day during an event marking the second anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. Christie, who has received some rare praise from the mainstream media for a…
Not News in NJ: Cop Claims Police Don't Have to Follow Constitution Be
August 6th, 2014 10:59 AM
“Obama has decimated the freakin’ Constitution, so I don’t give a damn. If he doesn’t follow the Constitution, we don’t have to.” So who made this claim? Some crazy guy drunk on beer? Nope. More like an on-duty New Jersey cop drunk on power. As you can see in this video (and after the jump) he was not at all reticent about making this claim. Pretty shocking stuff and the video is now going…
