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…
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…
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…
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…
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…
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…
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…
Gay-Obsessed Website Makes Lewd Phallic Tweet About Christian
October 22nd, 2015 4:25 PM
On Wednesday night, after Mets infielder and openly Christian postseason star Daniel Murphy hit his 6th home run in as many games to put the icing on the Metropolitans Pennant win, Deadspin posted this innaropriate tweet.
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…
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…
Same WashPost That Praised Cory Booker, Despite His Phony Stories, Sla
May 8th, 2014 7:59 AM
There are two black U.S. Senators, Democrat Cory Booker of New Jersey and Republican Tim Scott of South Carolina. The Washington Post demonstrated a blatant partisan tilt toward the former by cooing over Booker’s brilliance and national profile last year.
The Post omitted Booker flat-out making things up, inventing a drug-dealer called “T-Bone” to tell inner-city stories.…
Column: A Bridge Too Far-Fetched
February 6th, 2014 7:08 PM
New Jersey governor Chris Christie deserves to be defended. The gravamen of the media's case against Christie on Bridgegate seems to be that he is a "bully" -- which I painstakingly gleaned from the fact that the governor is called a "bully" 1 million times a night on MSNBC and in hundreds of blog postings and New York Times reports.
Christie is not a bully. If…
WashPost Celebrates 'Semi-Liberal' NJ Democrat Retiring Under Ethics C
February 5th, 2014 1:06 PM
On Tuesday, staunchly liberal Rep. Robert Andrews (N.J.) -- lifetime ACU score of 13.5 -- announced he's retiring from Congress. For his part, reporter Jason Horowitz of the New York Times noted in the lead paragraph of his Wednesday morning print article that the 12-term Democratic congressman's legacy was dogged by his "alleged misuse of his campaign funds."
