Brian Stelter Touts Liberal-Funded Nonprofit News Orgs Joining Forces
October 18th, 2019 11:19 AM
It is interesting to see liberal outlets like CNN singing the praises of nonprofit news outlets like ProPublica and Texas Tribune, particularly because these entities happen to have been funded almost exclusively by some of the biggest liberal organizations, including organizations from George Soros’ Open Society Network.
Politico Wag: 'Stop the Press Before It Profiles Beto O'Rourke Again'
October 12th, 2018 7:51 AM
Politico magazine media writer Jack Shafer is not your typical lefty media type, as demonstrated by his latest piece "Stop the Press Before It Profiles Beto O’Rourke Again." Shafer calls out his colleagues for overdoing the Beto "buzz," and then underlines his agreement with the conventional wisdom that O'Rourke's opponent Ted Cruz is a terrible human being…

May 27th, 2018 10:05 PM
The mainstream media has been very reticent about reporting polls showing that voter preference in the midterm elections has shifted significantly from Democrats to Republicans.

New York Times Contorted George P. Bush's Climate Change Views to Fit
September 4th, 2014 7:24 AM
Last week Newsbusters analyzed the strange new respect granted a local Texas candidate (and Bush family member) George P. Bush: His global warming advocacy which, according to an approving headline, "Stray[ed] From Party Ideology."
Reporter Neena Satija of the Texas Tribune praised Bush, a candidate for Texas Land Commissioner, for avoiding making a "Tea Party talking point…
A Moderate Bush Wins NYT Kudos for Climate Change Concern, Unlike Anti
August 31st, 2014 6:20 PM
Strange New Respect? The national edition of Sunday's New York Times featured a favorable profile of a Bush family politician: George P. Bush (son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush) who's running for a minor state government post in Texas this fall. So what makes him worthy of a news story in the Sunday Times?

Wendy Davis Becomes Texas Tribune Nonperson as Campaign Goes Into Perr
August 22nd, 2014 11:55 AM
How does a Democrat candidate for the highest office in the state become a nonperson at the "non-partisan" Texas Tribune? When that person's campaign goes into such a freefall that it becomes an embarrassment to even report on it.
Such seems to be the case with the Wendy Davis campaign for governor in Texas. The last time the Texas Tribune directly reported about her was a…

Texas Tribune Avoids Reporting on Big Setback for Wendy Davis Campaign
April 30th, 2014 9:17 PM
The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday about a big setback for the Wendy Davis campaign for Texas governor. The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) did not include her campaign as a top target which means it won't be prioritized for heavy spending. The reaction from the Davis campaign could best be described as an angry hissy fit which bitterly attacked the DGA.
Daily Beast Knee-Slapper: 'Wendy Davis Will Turn Texas Purple
March 18th, 2014 1:05 PM
"Wendy Davis Will Turn Texas Purple" insists the teaser headline on the Daily Beast front page today. No, this is NOT satire, but the honest-to-goodness belief of community organizer turned Daily Beast contributor Sally Kohn.
The headline for the story itself -- "Wendy Davis Is One Step Closer To Turning Texas Purple" -- dials down the hype a tiny bit, but the argument of…
Texas Tribune Downplays Video Proving Left-wing Voter Fraud in Lone St
February 21st, 2014 11:49 AM
As predicted by Bryan Preston of the PJ Tatler, the supposedly non-partisan Texas Tribune downplayed the story about the Project Veritas video showing Battleground Texas illegally using voter registration information. How did The Texas Tribune do that? By bizarrely makiing the focus of their deflect story the Texas Secretary of State, rather than the video itself.
Here is Preston's…
