Huh? NYT Hails Seattle Protest as 'Homeland for Racial Justice'

The "Homeland for Racial Justice." Sound like a neutral journalistic description? It's not, but that's how The New York Times described an area in Seattle taken over by protesters.

September 23rd, 2019 4:53 PM
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi on Friday and Monday lectured viewers that climate change isn’t a “partisan” issue. Instead, anyone who “breathes” should endorse the efforts to save the planet.

Trump Wins MSNBC’s Debate Analysis: 71 Mentions in Under 2 Hours
June 27th, 2019 2:06 AM
While MSNBC analysts were peeved by the lack of Trump talk in Wednesday night’s debate, the network’s post-debate panel more than made up for the discrepancy, with much of their discussion centering around the President. In fact during those two hours of special coverage, the panel referred to Donald Trump far more often than they did to any of the Democratic candidates.

Chuck Todd Battles Kellyanne Conway, Then Coddles Jay Inslee
April 15th, 2019 11:11 PM
There's something about interviewing Kellyanne Conway that makes the "objective" anchors a little crazy. Taking a look at the official Meet the Press transcript from Sunday suggests that Todd asked Conway a question -- or more likely, interjected/interrupted -- 56 times in a 15-minute interview. Later in the show, Todd conducted a very polite interview with Gov. Jay Inslee. He…
