Brent Bozell: The Worst Reporting And Punditry Of 2015

You decide which camp is more obnoxious.    If we're counting press clips, in politics the year 2015 was dominated by Donald Trump. The liberal press is emotionally conflicted on this one. Some are delighted with the notion that he's going to destroy the Republican brand with oafish overstatements. Some are disgusted that he's still in the race     ... MORE

Barry Farber: CNN's Latest Defamation Of America

Following an anti-American template.   “A typical day in America” was the way the BBC announced the massacre in San Bernardino. When CNN let us in on that, Wolf Blitzer asked Fareed Zakaria how the rest of the world looked upon America. “You’re a world traveler, Fareed,” said Wolf. “What are they saying about us?” Before Fareed said a   ...

Media Seen To Be Biased Against Trump And For Clinton

Unintended transparency.    Voters are far more likely to think the media is biased against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump than against his chief Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Forty-seven percent (47%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most reporters are biased against Trump. A new Rasmussen Reports finds that 31% disagree, but 22%      ... MORE

John Nolte: Why CNN Is Dying - The Network Shamlessly Used The Paris Bloodbath To Push For More Gun Control

CNN is collapsing.  After a bit of a resurgence under chief Jeff Zucker, the left-wing cable news network’s ratings are falling back to earth. After a year of trumpeting ratings wins over third-place MSNBC (while still getting beat like a drum by Fox News), there are fewer and fewer of those wins, and not because MSNBC is doing all that much better.    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Ben Carson Flap

Conservative blacks disrupt the MSM narrative.      Dr. Ben Carson's whole life has been very unusual, so perhaps we should not be surprised to see the latest twist — the media going ballistic over discrepancies in a few things he said. Years ago, when I was writing some autobiographical sketches, I dug up old letters, to check out     ... MORE

An 'Encyclopedic Example of Liberal Media Bias'

Brent Bozell on CNBC's unmasking at the GOP debate.  MRC president Brent Bozell issued a statement Wednesday night criticizing the overall tilt and tone of the CNBC Republican debate in Boulder: "The CNBC moderators acted less like journalists and more like Clinton campaign operatives.  What was supposed to be a serious debate about  ...

Brent Bozell: Hillary's 'Victory Lap' Of Lies

Hillary Clinton gives false testimony, journalists yawn.     To hear the media tell it, Hillary Clinton came to Capitol Hill as a bullfighter and easily killed the angry bulls of the House Benghazi committee. The "mainstream" media wondered why these crazy Republicans would "walk into the trap" of trying to scrutinize and question a media    ... MORE

Glenn Greenwald: CNN And The NYT Are Deliberately Obscuring Who Perpetrated The Afghan Hospital Attack

George W. Bush would have no such luck.       Much of the world spent the last 48 hours expressing revulsion at the U.S. airstrike on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. It was quite clear early on that the perpetrator of the attack was the U.S., and many media outlets and other organizations around the world have been stating this without    ... MORE

Black, Gay Reporter Murders Straight, White Journalists — Media Blame The Gun

by Ben Shapiro.     On Wednesday, America met a deeply evil human being: Vester Lee Flanagan II, also known as reporter Bryce Williams. Williams murdered two people while they were live on air on WDBJ in Virginia: reporter Alison Parker, and cameraman Adam Ward. After the murders, he went on the run – and while he was on the run,   ... MORE

James Queally: Why The Police Killing Of This Unarmed White Man Has Not Provoked A National Media Outcry

Black lives matter, but ...  Zachary Hammond, an unarmed white 19-year-old, was in the middle of a seemingly routine vehicle stop in South Carolina last week when a police officer fatally shot him. Police have said the officer fired in self-defense during a drug sting, but a subsequent autopsy seems to counter the officer’s claim that Hammond     ...

Walter E Williams: Liberals' Use Of Black People - Part II

Life on the liberal plantation.    Last week's column focused on the ways liberals use blacks in pursuit of their leftist agenda, plus their demeaning attitudes toward black people. Most demeaning are their double standards. It was recently reported that Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the House majority whip, spoke at a 2002 gathering hosted by  ... MORE

Another White House Mouthpiece Joins Up With MSNBC

Propaganda repository gets new blood.  MSNBC: The place where ex-White House aides go to be unbiased. Or, well, something like that. There was a time, years ago, when MSNBC was still pretending to have straight news reporting by not letting hosts like Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews anchor election coverage. But that’s clearly a     ... MORE

IBD Editorial: Press Helps Obama Censor The News

It's not often that the press exposes its own bias.     But a Washington Post story this week reveals both the Obama administration's attempts to censor the news and the media's complicity in that effort. For decades, news outlets have relied on pool reports from a rotating group of White House correspondents who follow the president  ... MORE

Ed Krayewski: The Role of the Media in the War on Drugs

The strategic air support.     The media's often called the fourth estate. Where's that come from? In the Middle Ages in Europe the first estate was the nobility, the second estate was the clergy, and the third estate was peasants, everyone else. Together the three estates constituted a feudal "realm." The king existed outside the     ... MORE

Democrats Launch Effort To Get Rush Limbaugh Off The Air

by John Nolte. If you can't beat him, censor him.       During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network's broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn't censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Media And The Mob Of Ferguson

The bias of the bullet-counters.        Casting blame based on skin color should have ended with Jim Crow. Those of us who admit that we were not there and do not know what happened when Michael Brown was shot by a policeman in Ferguson, Mo., seem to be in the minority. We all know what has happened since then — and it has been a      ... MORE

Country Moves Toward GOP On Every Significant Issue

New AP poll reveals verdict on hope and change.     Although you wouldn’t know it from the lack of media coverage, or even the AP's own write-up of the poll (which gives new meaning to the phrase "buried lead"), a new Associated Press-GfK poll offers nothing but harrowing news for Democrats and the media who love them. Buried in the "pox  ... MORE
