NYT's Egan Perpetuates Obama-As-Uniter Mythology to Attack Trump
October 28th, 2017 9:12 PM
Timothy Egan at the New York Times is so enamored of the mythology surrounding Barack Obama that he claimed in a Friday column that the 44th President's rhetoric "was the best American music" which "celebrated" a United States where, in Egan's words, "people from all races, ideologies and religious sects would check their hatreds at the door after becoming…
MSNBC Guest: 'White Flight' to GOP, a Black Roy Moore Cld Not Hold Gun
October 1st, 2017 8:49 PM
On Friday morning's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle was freaking out over Republican Roy Moore getting nominated for Senate in Alabama as she hosted liberal guest David Litt and right-leaning guest Elise Jordan to discuss the subject. As is typical, Jordan contributed no right-leaning commentary into the discussion as Litt -- a new recurring guest on MSNBC -- was more partisan as he accused…
LA Times Writer Falls Overboard Praising Obama’s Oracular Oratory
January 15th, 2017 8:13 AM
Jeffrey Fleishman, arts and film writer for the Los Angeles Times and its former Cairo bureau chief, waxed insufferably eloquent about the departing President Obama’s oratorical skills in a pandering panegyric: "Obama’s legislative legacy may be in jeopardy from President-elect Donald Trump, but the grace of his prose will endure....His sentences soothed and stung, coaxed and…
AP Reporters Pretend to Struggle With 'Unexplained' Violent Crime Rise
June 8th, 2016 12:12 PM
If we're to believe the pose struck by five Associated Press reporters who contributed to a Sunday afternoon story on the topic, the spike in violent crime in the U.S. during the past nearly two years apparently needs its own episode of the old Unsolved Mysteries TV series.
"Experts can't point to a single reason" for the rise. The increase "is stumping law enforcement…
David Corn on Ben Carson: 'There Are Serious Issues About His Faith'
October 27th, 2015 7:51 PM
David Corn claims that there are "serious issues" about Ben Carson's Seventh Day Adventism faith. Great point, David. After all, for twenty years, Carson sat in the pews of a preacher who spewed "God damn America" hatred, a pastor that Carson chose to officiate his marriage and baptize his children.
Oh, wait: that wasn't Carson. It was Barack Obama, who chose…
ABC, CBS, CNN Ignore Radical Politics of Speakers at March Anniversary
October 12th, 2015 3:59 PM
On Sunday, ABC's Good Morning America and CBS's Sunday Morning followed the lead of the New York Times in omitting the extremist history of Louis Farrakhan in their coverage of the "Justice or Else" rally marking the 20h anniversary of the Million Man March. The Big Three programs also failed to mention that former pastor to then-Senator Barack Obama, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, spoke…
On Trump, Obama, Rev. Wright, and the Media's Double Standards at Work
September 19th, 2015 9:09 PM
I like the Washington Post's Erik Wemple. Even when he goes after me in his column, because, hey, it wonderfully illustrates the liberal media's double standard.
Juan Williams: There Are 'Elements of Racism' in Today's Constitution
February 23rd, 2015 4:10 PM
In a discussion with plenty of other objectionable elements on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Friday, Juan Williams asserted that "There's no question that if you look at our Constitution, there are elements of racism right in it." Note his use of the present tense.
The version of this country's founding document Williams was referencing must be 147 or more years old, because…
WashPost, PBS Boost Obama Faith Director's Book Without Asking About H
October 26th, 2013 9:56 PM
When George W. Bush's faith-based initiative staffer David Kuo came out with a book whacking away at Bush, the media were enthralled (excerpted lovingly by Time magazine and interviewed on 60 Minutes). Now under Obama, they're helping former faith-based initiatives director Joshua Dubois sell his new book "The President's Devotional." In Saturday's Washington Post,…
Salon.com Story Lamely Claims 'Gross Exaggeration' In MRC Research on
April 27th, 2013 6:19 PM
Sometimes, the left simply can’t argue against hard facts. In a book excerpt warning of the “resurgent right” on Salon.com, leftist Lee Fang accused Brent Bozell of “gross exaggeration” in describing media apathy on Obama scandals.
Fang reported that in a speech at the Council for National Policy in February 2009, Bozell claimed by the time the…
Surprise: New York Times Actually Takes Seriously Obama 2007 Video Pra
October 4th, 2012 5:03 PM
In a bit of a surprise, New York Times reporters Jeremy Peters and Jim Rutenberg filed a longish article on a recently unearthed Obama video from 2007 showing the president in a fiery, racially charged mode and praising his anti-American pastor Jeremiah Wright, a video downplayed or ignored by most of the mainstream media: "Race at Issue for Obama As Right Revives '07 Talk."…
NBC Dismisses Obama Video as Old News, Edits Out Jeremiah Wright Comme
October 3rd, 2012 12:20 PM
In a stunning omission on Wednesday's NBC Today, brief coverage of a 2007 video of Barack Obama completely ignored the then-Senator praising his controversial pastor Jeremiah Wright as a "great leader, not just in Chicago, but all across the country." The NBC morning show adopted a dismissive attitude toward the video, with co-host Savannah Guthrie leading off the broadcast:…
WashPost Unloads Both Barrels on Ed Klein's Anti-Obama Book
June 21st, 2012 9:03 AM
The Washington Post suddenly discovered Ed Klein’s best-selling anti-Obama book The Amateur on the front page of Thursday’s Style section. Reporter/book blogger Steven Levington announced the book "contains scenes that did not occur or that were vastly misconstrued, according to those who Klein says were present."
Levingston completely ignored the most headline-grabbing…
NYTimes Religion Writer Baselessly Accuses Conservatives of Taking Rev
May 29th, 2012 3:54 PM
Mark Oppenheimer's latest bimonthly "Beliefs" column for the New York Times accused conservatives like Jonah Goldberg of misunderstanding Marxist "liberation theology" in using Rev. Jeremiah Wright to attack Barack Obama: "A Campaign Pitch Rekindles the Question: Just What Is Liberation Theology?"
The year 2012 looks a lot like 2008: high unemployment, a…
