In the midst of MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle helping sell Joe Biden’s proposed massive $2 trillion COVID relief package, one of the President-Elect’s economic advisers, Jared Bernstein, took time to thank the compliant host for her “help” and “advocacy.” Ruhle happily took the “compliment” and promised to continue being a Democratic spokesperson.
Left Attacks Economist Art Laffer as 'Kook,' 'Destructive' Force
June 20th, 2019 5:29 PM
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over…

MSNBC’s Bernstein (Purposely?) Confuses Budget Deficit with National
April 17th, 2014 10:35 AM
MSNBC contributor Jared Bernstein pulled off a deft sleight-of-hand on Tuesday’s PoliticsNation. It started after host Al Sharpton played a clip of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) calling for fiscal responsibility: “If Washington is serious about helping working families or serious about getting families out of work back to work, then it needs to get serious about our national debt. How do we…

August 16th, 2013 2:34 PM
MSNBC host Alex Wagner appeared to tie Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to ObamaCare opposition and libertarianism on Wednesday’s Now, with liberal guests Jared Bernstein and Mark Potok taking part in the anti-conservative argument. Wagner suggested that ObamaCare “extremism would seem to be of a piece with this radicalized rhetoric” that influenced the terrorist Tsarnaev.…
At Politico, Untagged Former Biden Adviser Bernstein Fails to Make Cas
August 12th, 2013 9:56 PM
An August 6 opinion column at the Politico labeled co-authors Jared Bernstein and Paul Van de Water as "senior fellows at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities." CBPP, that oxymoron known as a "leftist think tank," went unlabeled. The Politico also must have thought that Bernstein's background as the Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joseph…
MSNBC Panel Pines for Ongoing Christie-Paul Feud: '2016 Republican Clo
July 31st, 2013 4:49 PM
Earlier this afternoon, my NewsBusters colleague Kyle Drennen highlighted the Today show’s effort to hype the recent feud between Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Unsurprisingly, the folks at MSNBC were even more eager to blow the dispute out of proportion – and to predict a nasty fight between Republicans in 2016.
Now host Alex Wagner kicked off a gleeful…

June 21st, 2013 6:25 PM
Alex Wagner appeared positively giddy over the House of Representative’s failure to pass the farm bill Thursday, using the bill’s defeat as an opportunity to rail against John Boehner and the House Republican caucus on Friday’s Now.

WashPost Paints Little Sequester as Big Loss For Obama's 'Second-Term
March 25th, 2013 8:39 AM
In what looks like a commentary on the front page, Washington Post reporter Zachary Goldfarb's story was a liberal lament: "Signing cuts, Obama lets priorities slip." The little sequester is somehow a major failure for Obama's liberal vision.
"With his signature this week, President Obama will lock into place deep spending cuts that threaten to undermine his second-term…
Maher: 'Who Cares What Somebody In Obama Administration Wrote Down and
November 3rd, 2012 10:29 AM
The ignorance and blind sycophancy of Bill Maher knows no bounds.
On HBO's Real Time Friday, the man who proudly gave a million dollars to Barack Obama's Super PAC said on national television, "Who cares what somebody in his administration wrote down on a piece of paper and predicted?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
