Bill Press, perhaps best known as one of the 1990s hosts for the influential CNN cable show Crossfire, now hosts one of the few popular liberal radio programs, and he offered a shocker: he admitted Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize "when he had done nothing."
Foreign governments are preparing to crack down on social media monopolies. An English House of Commons committee, the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, released a report claiming Facebook’s flaws were “risking the U.K.’s democracy.”
New York Times’ reporter David Segal jeered supporters of Brexit, the 2016 vote in which Britain voted narrowly to leave the European Union, with a profile of a London radio host: “The Fame and Folly of Fighting Brexiteers With Logic -- A talk radio host wields facts, eviscerating Leavers and racking up YouTube clicks.” Segal is condescending and snide on the front page of Sunday Business, comparing Brexit voters to suicides, while relishing host O’Brien owning the stupid Leavers.
It comes down to two possibilities, neither appealing -- Bill Press is either completely clueless or inclined to deliberately parrot an obviously dishonest political narrative. Then again, it could be both. Perhaps you've seen the video of rising leftist kommissar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a rooftop when she was a student at Boston University in homage to the '80s coming-of-age screen classic The Breakfast Club.
On the MSNBC show 'AM Joy,' Maria Hinojosa says: "The government supports the Corporation for Public Broadcasting that supports public media, which is independent. Although oftentimes kind of bends over backward to show that they're not too progressive, precisely because they don't want to be caught on that charge."
New York Times reporter Dan Bilefsky took on a right-wing radio host in Quebec, for some reason, on Sunday: “‘Trash Radio’ Host in Quebec City Fires Up Outrage, and Big Ratings.” From the start it was clear this would be no friendly profile like the one’s the Times once filed to to boost liberal radio hosts, like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in 2005, back when she hosted a show on the radio network “Air America.”
Progressive radio host Thom Hartmann has some advice for impeachment crusader Tom Steyer — buy a radio network.
Hartmann wrote on left-wing Salon on June 26, “If liberal billionaires like Tom Steyer want to have a real and lasting impact on American politics, they should think seriously about buying a nationwide radio network.”
Tuesday's All Things Considered on NPR targeted the Supreme Court's decision that upheld President Donald Trump's travel ban. Host Mary Louise Kelly touted that "the Court's conservatives plac[ed] few limits on presidential power" on the issue. Nina Totenburg lined up three legal experts who all expressed "distinct disappointment" in the high court's ruling. Totenburg also spotlighted that the first version of the ban caused "chaotic scenes in airports across the globe."
It was a huge win for the First Amendment and for the pro-life movement. The Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday in NIFLA v. Becarra that California cannot mandate that pro-life crisis pregnancy centers give out abortion information at their clinics. The two sides of the abortion debate had different reactions to this ruling. Guess which side the media went with?
NPR shamelessly slanted leftward on Weekend Edition Sunday, with a segment that spotlighted a drag show in Vermont that was sponsored by a local veterans hospital. Correspondent Britta Greene zeroed in on a VA social worker who "transformed into his drag persona, Britney Queers, in a plaid miniskirt and long blonde braids." Greene also emphasized a claim that "the effects of 'don't ask, don't tell' and bans on transgender service linger," despite this outreach to LGBT veterans.
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh blasted NeverTrump Republicans and the media that aids them on his radio program, Wednesday. Fox and Friends picked up the clip of Limbaugh taking down Tennessee Congressman Bob Corker and the media that praised his words, after he smeared Republicans who supported Trump as part of a “cult.” Limbaugh called out several media outlets as elitists who lazily dismiss those they don’t agree with, wondering why they didn’t say the same thing about Democrats when Obama was in office.
A Net Neutrality-free Internet – is the Internet status quo. It’s “The Internet as we know it.”
Everything you knew about the Internet the first two-plus decades – is what you know about the Internet now.
Everything else being flung at you by the Media-Left – is just ideological monkey poo.
