Less than 24 hours after Republican candidate Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff by more than 1,300 votes in a special election for Georgia’s 6th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, the women panelists on ABC’s weekday afternoon program The View sought to console themselves on Wednesday, June 21, by generating excuses for the loss.
Oops: Eleanor Clift Mangles Karen Handel's Resume on Twitter
June 21st, 2017 5:24 PM
Rob Eno at Conservative Review caught Eleanor Clift in a major Twitter boo-boo, claiming that Congresswoman-Elect Karen Handel was an executive at Planned Parenthood. "Will Karen Handel vote to defund Planned Parenthood, where she was top exec and supported PP goals before getting booted out." Wrong, wrong, wrong. Handel was an executive at the breast-cancer charity Susan B. Komen Race…
MSNBC's Kornacki Finally Notices GA-06 Maybe Not Solidly Republican
June 21st, 2017 4:31 PM
You read it here first. Two months ago -- and again last night -- NewsBusters pointed out that there was a major hole in the dominant media theory that GA-06 was a "solidly Republican" district that Republicans should be embarrassed about having to defend in yesterday's special election. In spite of Donald Trump just barely winning the district last November, many journalists…
Nets Ignore: Planned Parenthood 2nd Biggest Spender in Ossoff Campaign
June 21st, 2017 12:55 PM
Money can’t buy everything. And, whether the media will report it or not, America’s largest abortion provider is proving to be a damning campaign partner. On Tuesday night, Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s sixth district special election despite raising $23 million. And while the media raced to spin the news, the broadcast networks…

June 21st, 2017 12:53 PM
The night of June 20 was a rough one at Buzzfeed, the nasty hard-left clickbait site. How do we know? Partly because of their depressed coverage of the Georgia special election results, and partly because a new book tells us what it was like around the Buzzfeed offices election night 2016.

June 21st, 2017 10:20 AM
Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's New Day, left-leaning CNN political analyst and Daily Beast editor John Avlon tried to spin Democrat Jon Ossoff's defeat in Georgia as being because of a "rigged system of redistricting" that gave Republicans a "heavy advantage."
NBC, ABC Hype Georgia Special Election as ‘Referendum’ on Trump
June 19th, 2017 3:47 PM
On Monday, both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America used Democratic Party talking points to hype Tuesday’s upcoming congressional special election in Georgia as a “referendum” on Donald Trump’s presidency. Hosts and correspondents repeated the phrase multiple times and eagerly touted how “Democrats now see an opening” in the race.
In Interview with Biased MSNBCer Andrea Mitchell, Former Komen Exec Ha
September 13th, 2012 4:00 PM
In February, I documented how liberal MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell thoroughly went to bat for Planned Parenthood in a biased interview with Komen for the Cure CEO Nancy Brinker. The larger controversy, you may recall, was over Komen's decision to not extend grants to Planned Parenthood chapters, redirecting those funds elsewhere. This was one of the controversies that MSNBC later used as…
MSNBC Highlights Anti-Limbaugh Organization, Fails to Mention They Hel
March 7th, 2012 3:47 PM
Continuing her network's anti-Limbaugh drumbeat today, MSNBC's Tamron Hall interviewed a little-known feminist activist by the name of Shaunna Thomas of the equally unfamiliar group UltraViolet, which is campaigning to deprive Rush Limbaugh of all of his sponsors. UltraViolet, apparently, is famous for pushing the specious and ultimately discredited claims about a supposed anti-abortion…
