PBS NewsHour Special Pushes Liberal Line on Guns, American Racism
As PBS NewsHour special on survivors of gun-related violence squeezed in a liberal agenda.

Wesley Lowery, a former Washington Post reporter who covers police issues and race, appeared on PBS’s news roundup Washington Week Friday to talk about the brutal killing of Tyre Nichols at the hands of police after a traffic stop in Memphis, and both he and the emotional show host Yamiche Alcindor insisted anti-black racism was so widespread in America that it…

NPR Enables Jeffries: We Won't Pay 'Ransom Note' to GOP 'Extremists'
NPR sounded like National Democrat Radio again on Friday as Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep interviewed House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. It was extremely reminiscent of Inskeep's regular puffball interviews with President Obama, as Jeffries is clearly trying to project that same fake-moderation, and Inskeep is trying to help.The NPR headline is the DNC headline: "Hakeem…

On PBS, Historian Jon Meacham Compares Liz Cheney, Bush Sr. to Lincoln
Firing Line host Margaret Hoover talked to liberal historian, presidential biographer, and current Biden speechwriter Jon Meacham, who made some bizarre modern-day comparisons to President Abraham Lincoln and denied he was a Democrat, in the latest edition of the relaunched public affairs show on PBS.

Column: NPR Drops Bombs on the 'Hard Right Republicans In Congress'
My maxim on the media’s use of ideological labeling is “The epic political battles of our time are between the ultraconservatives and the nonpartisans.” Journalists see Republicans as a whole as ultraconservative, or as a wholly owned subsidiary of the ultraconservatives. Exhibit A is NPR's program Fresh Air with Terry Gross, which isn't fresh at all.
CNN’s Henderson Hits ‘So-Called’ Pro-Life, Hails ‘Decent Person' BIden
On PBS’s weekly journalist roundtable show Washington Week, Nia-Malika Henderson of CNN hit a trifecta of liberal bias, dismissing the import of President Biden’s classified document scandal, taking a crack at the “so-called pro-life movement,” and using a failed Republican candidate from New Mexico to claim that election denialism and violent rhetoric was a…
NPR AM Show Mocks Fox-Driven Gas Stove Panic, Ignores Their Own 'News'
NPR’s Morning Edition tried to have it both ways Friday, both mocking right-wing concern over banning gas stoves and also suggesting a ban could be in the works after all. The set-up was galling. Why would taking the head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission seriously when he said a gas stove ban was on the table require the expertise of NPR’s “conspiracy theory” reporter Lisa…
