July 15th, 2020 9:15 AM
As the 2020 presidential election fast approaches, so do media attempts to incite voter hysteria about the chances of it being stolen. On Tuesday's Morning Joe, dutiful MSNBC co-host Willie Geist brought on left-wing author David Shimer and former Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to try to rebuild the Russian election interference narrative.
On Fox, Ex-Obama Official Defends 'Kids in Cages' Started by Obama
February 21st, 2020 8:18 PM
On Thursday morning, Fox News again displayed the kind of good journalism that is so often lacking on the more liberal networks, as Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked former Barack Obama administration DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the cage-like structures that his administration built to hold illegal immigrants, including children. Johnson defended the facilities as being necessary…

September 1st, 2019 3:13 PM
It wasn’t just ABC stepping in to defend former Vice President Joe Biden from the false war story he was peddling at campaign events. During Sunday’s Meet the Press panel on NBC, the mostly liberal panel swooped in on Biden’s behalf to argue that President Trump’s lies were insidious, while the former VP’s were about American heroism. The panel demanded context be…
After Months of Denying, Cable Journalists Admit ‘Crisis’ at Border
April 2nd, 2019 10:17 AM
Talking heads on liberal cable news are finally warming to calling the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border a crisis, at least since former Obama DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson blessed that term on the March 29 edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. But some of us are old enough to remember a time – barely two months ago – when cable hosts were screaming to high heaven that there was…

June 23rd, 2017 2:50 PM
Until I read Wednesday evening's dispatch from the Associated Press by Deb Riechmann and Richard Lardner, I had no idea that the secretaries of state and boards of election throughout the land had surrendered their roles in compiling election results to the Associated Press.

MSNBC's Harris-Perry Likens Illegals to...the Fugitive Slave Act?
February 1st, 2016 11:49 AM
The left-wing hootenanny that is the Melissa Harris-Perry show went off the rails again on Saturday morning, with the host and her National Public Radio guest somehow comparing illegal aliens in Flint, Michigan to the Underground Railroad and the Fugitive Slave Act. As if someone in America was enslaving the illegal immigrants?
The topic was the Flint water scandal, a favorite MSNBC…
DHS Won't Call ISIS 'Islamic': Islam Is a Religion of 'Peace'
July 28th, 2015 11:55 AM
It can only be described as both ludicrous and insensitive. Just days after a Muslim terrorist shot up two military recruitment centers, killing five servicemen in Chattanooga, TN, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson told the media and high-ranking government officials to not mention the word “Islam” when talking about ISIS or terrorism.
Johnson made these comments at a national…
Top Obama Cabinet Official Grilled By Congress, Nets Ignore
December 3rd, 2014 3:23 PM

AP Absurdity: New DHS Head's Moves Following Scandalous Behavior Have
April 26th, 2014 9:49 AM
From time to time, leftist media members have regaled us about how the Obama administration somehow remains totally or nearly scandal-free (two of many examples are here and here). Part of the reason they actually believe this is because real-time press dispatches covering scandalous circumstances are rarely described that way.
The journalistic gymnastics involved were on vivid display…
