Column: The Real Collusion Scandal of the 2016 Campaign
July 24th, 2020 6:12 AM
Four years ago at this time, Wikileaks tried to turn the Democrat convention with internal Democratic National Committee emails that showed they blatantly favored Hillary Clinton over Sanders. But the media downplayed the juiciest tidbits for conservatives: emails that showed how shamelessly reporters and Democrats work hand in hand to shape the "news."
NYT Turns on Assange: From 'Gift of Information' to 'Dubious Judgment'
April 12th, 2019 8:04 PM
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested, and the front page of Friday’s New York Times featured Scott Shane and Steven Erlanger’s recap of Assange and the effect of his leaking of classified national security information (and Democratic Party secrets) in “A Divisive Prophet of the Public’s Right to Know.” The paper noticed that the tide of sophisticated opinion, once favorable to the…
Matthews Claims Trump Still Colluded and WikiLeaks Cost Hillary PA
April 11th, 2019 8:12 PM
Now that the liberal media have had a few weeks since Attorney General Bill Barr’s March 24 letter on the Mueller report, liberal journalists and pundits have returned to insisting that Trump-Russian collusion still took place and it affected voters and thus rendered Trump an illegitimate President. Not surprisingly, that nonsense was alive and well on Thursday’s Hardball.

Media Ignore Lawsuit Claiming Hillary Campaign Laundered $84 Million
April 25th, 2018 11:00 PM
If there’s any doubt that the mainstream media will go to any lengths to protect fellow liberal Democrats, the fact that the journalists have avoided covering a lawsuit -- filed in D.C. district court exposing an $84 million money-laundering conspiracy by Democrats during the 2016 presidential election -- should erase it completely.
NYT Repents for Sin of Covering Hillary’s Leaked E-Mails
April 22nd, 2018 8:27 PM
Amy Chozick, who covered the Hillary Clinton campaign for the New York Times, sports sackcloth and ashes for the sin of actually reporting on publicly available emails from the Clinton campaign -- while ignoring all the dirty details in the emails themselves: "But it wasn’t a scoop. It was more like a bank heist....I didn’t push to hold off on publishing them until we could have a less harried…
ABC, NBC Refuse to Highlight Democratic Opposition to DNC Lawsuit
April 20th, 2018 8:50 PM
On the Friday broadcast network evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News played the role of faithful PR representatives for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), giving legitimacy and life to a DNC lawsuit seeking to somehow avenge their 2016 election losses and lay blame on, among others, the Russian government.
NYT's Haberman Compares Wikileaks Harm of HRC Campaign to 9-11 Attacks
February 20th, 2018 1:58 PM
Tuesday’s New York Times featured a humdrum personal profile of its own reporter, Maggie Haberman, whose only point of interest was an offensive comparison the White House reporter made between Michael Bloomberg’s 2001 run for mayor of New York City and Donald Trump’s run for president in 2016. In both cases, “an unprecedented form of terror in an election” resulted in an unlikely result. One was…

NYT Hits Trump’s Pardon of Arpaio; Supported Obama’s Mercy for Manning

President Trump’s pardon of controversial Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, scourge of illegal immigrants and a promoter of the “birther” conspiracy theory about Barack Obama, made the front of Sunday’s New York Times.

Hypocrite NYT Loved Bush Dirt, Laments Info on Hillary
August 2nd, 2017 11:55 AM
Media columnist Jim Rutenberg’s latest New York Times column provided the odd image of a reporter regretting that his colleagues actually covered news, under the neutral headline “Germans Covering Election Await a Trove of Stolen Files.” The Times in 2006 proudly used leaks to cripple anti-terrorist programs put in place by Republican presidents, as well as secret diplomatic cables via the stolen…

May 2nd, 2017 10:12 PM
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton came out swinging Tuesday in a Q&A with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
