Over the past few days, CNN and MSNBC have again been peddling a discredited poll finding that about 90 percent of Americans -- this time from Quinnipiac with a tally of 97 percent -- supporting the adoption of laws to require background checks for all gun purchases. But, as previously documented by NewsBusters, other polling has found that support from respondents plummets if the questioner reminds or informs them that the overwhelming majority of gun purchases already undergo a background check since it is already required for licensed dealers.
In the final Friday segment of The Ingraham Angle, Fox News's Laura Ingraham focused much-needed attention on the public safety impact of California's refusal to cooperate with ICE's attempts to deport predominantly criminal illegal aliens in that state. Leveraging a Department of Homeland Security press release identifying the dangers the sanctuary state's policies have created when ICE agents try to do their jobs, Ingraham declared: "Shame on you, California. People could die or be injured because you refuse to cooperate."
One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”
On Sunday's World News Tonight, the show picked up on complaints by liberals accusing FNC host Laura Ingraham of making "racist" comments about the NBA's LeBron James on her show in which she criticized him for his recent slam against President Donald Trump. The worst thing about ABC's pre-recorded report was that, although the news team were clearly aware of Ingraham's response since they used a portion of it, they omitted the key explanation that her choice of words was a takeoff on her book, Shut Up and Sing, as the conservative talk radio host has had a long history of calling out liberal celebrities both white and black.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, Washington Post columnist and phony conservative Jennifer Rubin accused FNC host Laura Ingraham and Fox News generally -- which she called a "racist outfit" -- of using "racist innuendo" as she called for advertisers to pull from the right-leaning news network. Her comments came as the group discussed Ingraham's recent criticism of NBA player LeBron James for attacking President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday's Fox & Friends, the hosts and CBN correspondent David Brody discussed how the Associated Press took dramatically different takes on Twitter on the budget proposals of Obama and Trump. Trump's spending plan "features soaring deficits," while Obama's spending plans were "pledging help for the middle class" and fighting "terror threats, global warming."
After a disturbing amount of media outlets spent much of the weekend swooning for North Korea’s master of propaganda Kim Yo-jong, The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha appeared on Fox News Channel’s Happening Now and slammed them for helping to put a positive spin on the murderous regime.
After it was made public that President Trump had requested the Pentagon to plan a military parade through Washington, DC, there was a steady stream of forceful condemnation of the President in which they claimed he was imitating foreign dictators. And in an appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight Thursday, Hill media reporter Joe Concha knocked them for playing up their outrage and playing to an audience.
After news broke that Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson was killed by a twice deported illegal immigrant who was driving drunk, it was not shocking that the far-left news network MSNBC would be reluctant to give much attention to the story since it might bolster President Donald Trump's push for greater border security and deportation of illegals. As it turns out, an examination of all MSNBC shows from the past few days finds a grand total of only 35 seconds devoted to the story across two briefs that ran on Wednesday morning.
There are a lot of reasons people don’t like President Trump’s idea of having a military parade, but if you’re one of those troubled about the expense, national radio host Dana Loesch has a solution. Just redirect the federal money poured into the country’s largest abortion provider.
ABC, NBC and CBS all ignored a bombshell report released by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee overnight, which revealed more critical evidence concerning how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. The Committee also released more damning text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page which showed an intention by the agents to find evidence to impeach President Trump as well as the news that President Obama wanted to be involved in the Clinton email investigation.
Partisans tend to read, watch and listen only, or mostly, to information and opinions that reinforce their beliefs. If information surfaces that counters those beliefs, it is usually disparaged, excused or ignored. That's human nature. Such is the case with the "memo" released last Friday by the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee. The four-page document alleges, in the words of a Wall Street Journal editorial: "the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court appear to have been used to influence the 2016 election and its aftermath."
