Wednesday saw disgusting acts of sedition and insurrection from radical elements of the far-right as Trump supporters launched an assault on the Capitol, breaching its halls and offices.

August 9th, 2019 10:21 AM
Twitter’s war against conservatives and Republicans has some collateral damage — the company’s advertising business. Twitter blocked the campaign account for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) account from posting on August 7.

RNC Official Schools CNN’s Brian Stelter on Liberal Media Bias
October 23rd, 2016 4:37 PM
Liberal media bias has become painfully obvious during the 2016 election cycle. Between the severely lopsided coverage of political scandals and WikiLeaks exposing just how cozy the media is to the Clinton campaign, it’s nearly impossible to deny its existence. But that didn’t stop CNN’s Brian Stelter from trying on Reliable Sources Sunday. “But how is this anything more than the team that thinks…
Univision Reporter Blatantly Misstates Hispanic Media Surrogate Ratios
July 27th, 2016 8:00 AM
Media bias manifests itself in a number of ways. More often than not, bias is self-evident when examining the framing of a story. On other occasions, bias presents when determining which facts are presented and which are cast aside, brushed over, or omitted. And sometimes, bias is revealed via a gross misrepresentation of fact. Today we will examine a glaring instance of the latter.

For a liberal media that bemoans the idea of businesses and corporations being considered “people” post-Citizens United, BuzzFeed decided that they would cancel the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) advertising for their site due to Donald Trump’s candidacy threatening “the freedoms of our employees in the United States and around the world.”
Univision Misrepresents Ties To New RNC Hispanic Media Boss
June 3rd, 2016 12:04 AM
Sometimes, you can just look at a story as it unspools and know, instinctively, that the corrupt establishment media is going to find a way to embarrass itself. Univision is no different, the latest proof of that coming via the network's brazen material misrepresentation of its former relationship with the RNC's new Director of Hispanic Media, Helen Aguirre-Ferré.
ABC’s Ignorance of the Republican Party Exposed in Drama ‘The Family’
March 14th, 2016 1:28 AM
I’ve been wary of how ABC’s new suspense drama The Family would play politics from the beginning. The main character Claire Warren (Joan Allen), whose son has mysteriously reappeared after being missing and thought dead for 10 years, is a Republican running for governor in a campaign run by her daughter, Willa. It took until the third episode, “Of Puppies and Monsters,” for them to finally start…

January 18th, 2016 6:08 PM
MRC President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Monday in reaction to the Republican National Committee’s decision to officially cut ties with NBC News for a planned February 26 Republican presidential debate.
“This was the right move by the RNC. After the dreadful performance by CNBC’s moderators at the Republican debate in October, it makes no sense to continue to allow committed…
Lefty Blogger: GOP Destroyed By a ‘Vortex of Stupid’
June 13th, 2015 12:10 PM
America no longer has a two-party system, argued Washington Monthly blogger Martin Longman in a Friday post. That’s because the Republican party is essentially “defunct,” having been sucked into a “vortex of stupid” (i.e., taken over by right-wingers).
“The architects of this vortex,” wrote Longman, “are as varied as Karl Rove, Alberto Gonzales and Regent University jurisprudence,…
Priebus Stuns CNN Host by Stating 'I Don't Believe a Thing' Obama Says
November 6th, 2014 7:05 PM
The fallout from Tuesday's midterm elections continued to be felt on Wednesday evening, when the host of CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront pressed Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus on whether his party -- which had just won control of both chambers of Congress -- will make “a fresh start” and agree to more compromises when working with the president during his last two years in the…

May 12th, 2014 9:59 PM
Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus wants more of a say in choosing the party's 2016 presidential nominee. Makes sense, right? Actually, it doesn't, according to Salon's Jim Newell, who argued in a Monday piece that greater RNC control over pre-primary and primary-season debates will make them boring, thereby causing the many viewers who want to see the candidates snarling and…
