On Tuesday's The 11th Hour show, MSNBC host Brian Williams, the disgraced hack who lost his NBC Nightly News anchoring job for repeated lies and false stories, tastelessly encouraged his guest, former Democratic Senator Al Franken, to excoriate Ted Cruz with a joke about how everyone "hates" the Republican.

New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, who believed accusations of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, set out a pathetic partisan defense of another politician accused of a #MeToo misstep on Tuesday: Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

September 2nd, 2019 8:24 PM
The front of Monday’s New York Times featured reporter Lisa Lerer on failed feminist Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

This NPR Host Couldn't Be More In Favor of Abusive Al Franken
July 28th, 2019 3:21 PM
Longtime NPR Fresh Air host Terry Gross is completely In The Tank for Al Franken. Back in the Dubya years, we contrasted her giggly, tickly Franken interview with a very hostile Bill O'Reilly interview, where he actually stormed out of the studio.
