Media Bias Debate
NFL Hall of Famers are trying to score big off the field. They've written a letter demanding a king’s ransom in benefits from the league, including lifelong paychecks and health insurance. In a letter sent to Commissioner Roger Goodell, the league CEO and director of the players' union, they threatened to boycott the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony if the NFL doesn't roll over and empty Brinks truckloads of cash to their already bulging bank accounts. To adoring media libs, these wealthy ex-jocks are "America's Entitlement Team."
Appearing on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends to discuss his latest Trump study co-authored with research analyst Bill D’Agostino, the MRC’s Rich Noyes told co-host Steve Doocy that liberal broadcast network journalists have ditched their ability to use “neutral language that reporters used to use with presidents and getting into subjective commentary” that’s “creating this prejudicial impression of the President.”
Stephen A. Smith, the well-known ESPN talk show veteran said Monday on his radio show that his listeners and his producers were lucky that he wasn't going political because ESPN is not a political network. Then he stealthily approached the subject of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh being accused of sexual harassment. It appears that Smith (see file photo) is seriously questioning the Supreme Court nominee's accuser, but Awful Announcing writer Phillip Bupp assumes Smith is speaking against Kavanaugh and this story demands Smith not stick to sports.
Lefty groupthink can prove harmful to your credibility. That's what happened to CBS and other lemmings who took up tennis star Serena Williams' cause of "sexism" in tennis after her loss to Naomi Osaka of Japan in the Sept. 8th championship match of the U.S. Open women's tennis tournament. The New York Times has since reported that men are punished (see photo of unnamed male tennis pro abusing umpire) by tennis officials three times as often as women, deflating charges of sexism by Williams and her compliant media.
Published on Wednesday, the latest edition of National Review Online’s The Jamie Weinstein Show podcast featured a lively, hour-plus conversation with CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter. The full podcast is highly recommended as Stelter delved into his upbringing and his (sadly, wrong) views about media bias in addition so solid, universal career advice.
Against the backdrop of Nike rolling out its highly controversial new Colin Kaepernick "Just Do It" campaign during last night's NFL season opener, Sports Illustrated's Jacob Feldman has declared victory for fans urging media to "stick to sports." Gosh, he could have fooled the world with such a wild claim!
During an interview with USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page on Friday’s CBS This Morning, fill-in co-host Bianna Golodryga expressed concern that the anonymous anti-Trump op/ed published in The New York Times would contribute to the public’s “erosion of trust” in the news media.
In our latest visit to left-wing firebrand Dave Zirin, red meat sports editor of The Nation, we learn that Nike is unfit to brand the exalted prince of social justice activism, Colin Kaepernick. The conservatives he considers unfit, period, got a passing mention in this screed, as Zirin cut Nike down to size. It's all about Kaepernick and not about the Nike swoosh logo.
Resuming the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday afternoon, Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley blasted his Democratic colleagues and their liberal media allies for blatant hypocrisy when it came to criticism of the judicial branch of government, pointing to routine attacks on conservative Supreme Court justices.
On Monday's Deadline: White House on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur not only repeated the discredited myth that the Barack Obama administration deported more illegal immigrants than previous Presidents, she complained because Donald Trump supporters refused to believe her when she presented them with her flawed data during the 2016 presidential campaign. The segment she was hosting also included the latest example of MSNBC blaming Fox News and conservative talk radio for many voters not believing the liberal media, rather than the media's biased reporting.
Unbelievably, Nike just made Colin Kaepernick -- of all people! -- the face of its 30th anniversary "Just Do it" campaign. Was it the cops-are-pigs socks that sold Nike on the toxic former NFL quarterback? The pro-Castro t-shirt? The America is not free tweet from Ghana? So many "great marketing" choices for Nike! Bleacher Report's Tim Daniels did not speculate on the reasoning behind Nike's bizarre decision.
Colin Kaepernick's media apologists are crowing about his Thursday summary judgment phase victory after an arbitrator ruled his collusion case against the NFL can move forward. Media are calling it a big blow for the NFL, a big victory for Kaepernick, claiming the NFL may want to settle the case and speculating on Kaepernick's attorneys deposing President Donald Trump prior to the trial. The regular season opens next Thursday, but the social justice-crusading Kaepernick is all the media rage.
