WashPost Touts 'Reality-Grounded' Briefings Under Biden, Skips Scandal
Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty wrote a piece for Tuesday’s paper headlined “The return of White House press briefings.” It’s not like the briefings disappeared in 2020. But then you see the online headline: “Get ready for reality-grounded White House press briefings.” She insisted Kayleigh McEnany “set a new standard in shamelessness” at the podium.
NPR Touts Biden Spokesman Won't Allow 'A Platform for Right-Wing Spin'
On Thursday’s Morning Edition, National Public Radio touted their Jen Psaski interview with the headline “Biden's Incoming Press Secretary: Briefings Won't Be A Platform For Right-Wing Spin.” As usual, NPR thinks “right-wing spin” is the opposite of their reportage….which is “objective.” Not left-wing spin!

Journalists Protest Being Objective About Trump-Pence at Any Time
On Friday, Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi explored the increasing snark in White House "pool reports," which are supposed to be dry, fairly objective descriptions of presidential movements, but with today's Trump-hating press corps, no one could possibly be restrained. The headline in the paper was "Waters are getting a bit nippy in White House pool."

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. KARL? ABC Reporter Now Endorses Acosta's Aggression
ABC’s Jonathan Karl gave an interview to Mediaite and demonstrated the notion of cognitive dissonance. He finds it unfortunate that people think the press acts as the Resistance to Trump, and yet, he wants to reverse his negative take on CNN White House shrieker Jim Acosta in his reporter’s memoir, insisting on reflection that Acosta’s bombastic approach has been “vindicated.”
NPR Promotes Attack on Trump's VOA Boss Cracking Down on Liberal Tilt
The last people who should try to sound credible about preventing bias and preserving neutrality in government-funded broadcasting is NPR, but media reporter David Folkenflik has aired several stories in the last few weeks touting the complaints about political interference in the Voice of America news service, now run by Trump appointee Michael Pack. This is a massive conflict of…
HuffPost Harangue at Trump: Regret 'All the Lying...You Have Done?'
Indian-born HuffPost White House reporter Shirish (or S.V.) Date set the table for viral video and CNN and MSNBC delight on Thursday night by bald-facedly asking the president if he has any regrets about his energetic lying. This should not be that surprising for the website we've called "Huffington's House of Horrors."
Column: Your Opinion Is Not Reality
Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson has a Republican pedigree and an evangelical Christian background. He wrote profound speeches for George W.

Column: Biden's Puffballs from the Press
Everything about the June 30 press conference with Joe Biden underlines how the snarling, vicious watchdogs of the Trump administration are going to transform into cuddly little lapdogs if Biden is elected president. Biden began with a 20-minute speech, and CNN and MSNBC ran it all live, unlike their avoiding 96 percent of Trump's Tulsa rally.
'Absurd' Query to McEnany: Is Trump Sad the South Lost the Civil War?
