NYT Timeline of Sexual Misconduct Omits Powerful Democrats
November 27th, 2017 11:41 PM
In a piece that was supposed to be a rolling documentation of the sexual misconduct allegations that have come to light since the toppling of Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein, The New York Times had left out a series of accusations against numerous Democratic politicians. And on top of the blatant omissions, the timeline had gone un-updated since November 21 despite a flood of new allegations…
Don't Know the Party of a Politician Caught in a Scandal? He's Probabl
January 30th, 2014 9:05 AM
Within the span of 40 seconds, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams reported on two politicians caught in scandals, one a Republican the other a Democrat, but he gave the party affiliation of only one of the troubled politicians. Can you guess which one?
On the January 27 Nightly News, Williams reported that “Florida Republican Congressman Trey Radel has resigned effective tonight. He…
Reporting Bob Filner's Sentencing, ABC, CNN, MSNBC Websites All Omit F
December 9th, 2013 3:08 PM
This morning, Bob Filner (D) was sentenced to "90 days home confinement as punishment for three criminal charges connected to the sexual harassment scandal that ended his term as San Diego mayor," according to NBCSanDiego.com staffers Monica Garske and R. Stickney, who failed to mention Filner's Democratic Party affiliation in their story.
But Garske and Stickney are not alone among their…
With Sleazy Democratic Mayor Finally Set to Resign, ABC and NBC Again
August 23rd, 2013 5:38 PM
Why should things change now? NBC and ABC on Thursday night and Friday morning yet again refused to identify San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, accused of sexually harassing 18 women, as a Democrat. ABC's Good Morning America devoted two segments to his impending resignation, but mentioned only "Mayor Bob Filner."
In contrast, GMA on Thursday hyped the controversy of the Lieutenant governor of Texas…
ABC, Which Didn't Identify Sleazy Mayor as a Dem, Hits Scandal of 'Ris
August 22nd, 2013 11:49 AM
The journalists on Good Morning America, Wednesday, again ignored the fact that San Diego's mayor, accused of sexually harassing 18 women, is a Democrat. Yet, on the very same program, reporter John Muller made sure to highlight Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst's scandal, chiding the "rising national Republican star." Dewhurst is under fire for intervening after his step-niece was…
Great Grandmother Accuses Democrat of Sexual Harassment; NBC Yawns
August 16th, 2013 5:16 PM
NBC hasn't covered the ongoing Bob Filner sexual harassment scandal an almost a week, despite a fifteenth woman – a 67-year-old great grandmother – coming forward on Thursday, accusing the former congressman of making lurid comments to her. The last time that NBC's morning and evening newscasts covered the Filner story was on August 10, 2013.
On Friday, ABC and CBS's morning newscasts aired…
Only Online, ABC Realizes Weiner Scandal 'Takes a Toll' on Dems 'War o
August 1st, 2013 6:15 PM
A profound thought occurred to a journalist at ABC News: The high profile sex scandals involving Democrats Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner have taken "a toll" on the liberal war on women message. Too bad the story only appeared on ABCNews.com.
Writer Abby D. Phillip warned, "Turnabout is fair play according to Republicans who are now turning the 'war on women'…
MSNBC Host: Democratic Sex Scandals Are Different, Or Something
August 1st, 2013 5:36 PM
The one thing we can say safely about liberals is that they lack self-awareness, especially when one of their own acts badly. The Chronicles of Carlos Danger, the exploits of San Diego Mayor Bob “filthy” Filner, and the sexual proclivities of Eliot Spitzer have made the political scene a national joke. Yet, this lack of respect – and creepiness – is not treated by the liberal media as an…
Morning Joe Fails To ID Filner As Dem, Features Photo Of Him With Repu
August 1st, 2013 9:00 AM
If a Republican were ensnared in a sex scandal, do you think MSNBC would have failed to mention his party and instead featured a photo of him with a smiling Nancy Pelosi? But the "Lean Forward" network might well have hoodwinked unwary viewers this morning into thinking that Democrat Bob Filner is a Republican.
Not merely did today's Morning Joe failed to identify Filner—the San Diego mayor…
Nets Minimize Filner Scandal Coverage, Won't ID Him As A Democrat
July 31st, 2013 6:10 PM
ABC and CBS both failed to point out San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's Democratic party affiliation on their Wednesday morning newscasts. Good Morning America devoted just one 17-second news brief to the ongoing Filner scandal. CBS This Morning didn't do much better, with two news briefs on the former congressman. NBC's Today didn't set aside any air time to the controversy.
The NBC morning show…
ABC, CBS, NBC All Fail To ID Weiner, Filner as Democrats on Saturday A
July 30th, 2013 2:12 PM
All three major networks ran full-length stories on their Saturday morning shows on the sex scandals involving San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. However, none of the networks directly identified either politician as a Democrat.
ABC’s Saturday edition of Good Morning America ran separate stories on each of the two men. Their two-and-a-half minute…

July 28th, 2013 9:51 AM

Michelle Malkin: Nancy Pelosi Is a Creep Enabler
July 25th, 2013 6:52 PM
The most powerful female Democrat on Capitol Hill has turned her back on women. Again. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, entrenched 13-term incumbent, refuses to say whether creepster San Diego Mayor Bob Filner should resign amid an avalanche of longstanding sexual harassment allegations, staff resignations and now a lawsuit.
"What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego. I'm…
ABC, CBS Punt on Democratic Party ID of Mayor Being Sued For Sexual Ha
July 23rd, 2013 12:10 PM
On Tuesday, neither ABC's Good Morning America nor CBS This Morning mentioned San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's Democratic affiliation, as they reported on the new sexual harassment lawsuit against the former congressman. The CBS morning show devoted a full report to the latest development in the sex scandal, while the ABC broadcast only devoted a news brief to the story.
NBC's Today has yet to…
