    Regardless of who wins the election, the press — or, at any rate, what used to be called the “mainstream” media — may be the big loser. Donald Trump is making a case that he’s the victim of an orchestrated media campaign to defeat him, and although the charge is not true, it may stick among his devoted followers.

    In the face of all evidence to the contrary, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell claimed on Thursday that allegations that Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile leaked town hall questions to the Clinton campaign have been “completely knocked down.”Mitchell was discussing references Donald Trump made on Thursday to leaked debate and town hall questions. Trump claimed on Twitter that questions from Wednesday’s debate, moderated by Fox News’ Christopher Wallace, were provided to the Clinton campaign.On Thursday, he referred to the scandal involving Brazile and her apparent leaking of a CNN/TV One town hall question asked of Clinton in March.“That was...

Rains to Bogart: "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on here!" The croupier hands him money. "Your winnings, sir."

    Shameless Bias in Presidential Science Posted on October 16, 2016 Why do “science” news sites go after the Republican candidate only? This is another arena Donald Trump could show is rigged. This entry is about news bias; it does not take sides. Readers are free to make their own conclusions about the better candidate. But a fair result can only come from getting facts straight and reporting them with balance. Since these news sites quoted below often defend Darwinian evolution, it’s instructive to see if their bias on that subject shares commonalities with bias in the political arena. All the...

    NBC seems to have gone out of the news business. The network has been remarkably shy about reporting on the massive amount of e-mails being released through WikiLeaks, but more than willing to give time to anyone who says anything bad about Trump. Competitor CBS, on the other hand, seems to be dividing up with time equally into a “Bad Donald, Bad Hillary” segment. NBC, of course, is the network that employs John Harwood, a CNBC correspondent who sent love notes to the Clinton campaign and even generously offered his advice. I hope Harwood was auditioning for a job with...

    In a post-debate campaign rally GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump continued his charges of media bias by referencing the three-on-one (two moderators and Hillary Clinton vs. Trump) format of the Sunday night face-off. The crowd began chanting “CNN sucks,” much to the dismay of a few CNN “talking heads,” including Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota, Brian Stelter, and Bill Carter. Cuomo characterized the crowd response as “dangerous and unprecedented. We haven’t treated Trump any differently than any other Republican nominee. All of them—Romney, McCain, Bush—took it in stride without complaining. That Trump would make an issue out of it shows his...

This year, pre-election opinion polls were off by the largest amount seen in over 20 years. Could this massive underperformance by Democrats have been connected to a wrong guess about turnout?

    Even before The Washington Post reported on a 2005 recording of Donald Trump making crude comments about exploiting his celebrity to sexually assault women, Hillary Clinton's campaign was on the upswing. Her strong performance in the first presidential debate had pushed her national polling numbers up fairly quickly. Not as quickly as after the party conventions, mind you, but even before a new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll released on Monday, she led by about five points. Then the new poll came out. As always, one poll could be an outlier. This poll has a relatively high margin of error of...

The first is the obvious fact that a respondent answering the pollster may not rank toward the top of the ingenuousness scale. That is to say, he...

    If this year’s presidential election has a silver lining, it is the final demise of “mainstream media.” Which is not to say that liberal media are going away; they aren’t, of course. But liberal media’s claim to being mainstream–reliable, objective, fair, unlike fringe or partisan news sources–is gone forever. That is a good thing. No one could follow this year’s campaign without understanding that the media formerly known as mainstream (sorry, Prince) have jettisoned any pretense of neutrality, or even of journalistic integrity, in their desperation to preserve the status quo by electing Hillary Clinton president. Fair enough. We know...

    The phrase “basement dweller” exploded on social media Saturday after hacked audio appeared online of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaking to donors about Bernie Sanders’ supporters. The notion that Clinton would dismiss the idealism of her former rival’s fans and millennial voters as lazy, misinformed youngsters who haven’t moved out of their parents’ homes conformed with many perceptions of the Democratic candidate as an out-of-touch elitist. The words “basement dweller,” which she never actually said, started to trend alongside “basket of deplorables,” which she did say to denigrate large swaths of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s supporters.

Lauer was widely criticized for failing to fact-check or follow up when Trump falsely claimed that he was opposed to the Iraq war when it started.
