  • Right-wing media holds Biden bash-fest, foreshadowing its next four years of coverage

    President Joe Biden implored Americans in his inaugural speech to come together and unify, but the right-wing media machine has wasted no time dishonestly trashing him — foreshadowing what the next four years of coverage from outlets like Fox News will look like. On Fox News Wednesday night, the network decided against airing most of the "Celebrating America" inauguration special — which every other network carried — opting to instead allow propagandists like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity to deliver fiery anti-Biden sermons.
  • Biden's plain-spoken appeal for unity might be contagious in a new Washington

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden heralded the restoration of respectful republican governance Wednesday, simultaneously paying tribute to the power of American democracy and warning that its survival is tenuous. In an inaugural address short on specifics and long on calls for solidarity, the newly sworn-in 46th commander-in-chief promised, as presidents do, to be a leader for all Americans - those who voted for him and those who did not. Two aspects of Biden's appeal made it uniquely authentic to him: context and consistency. The speech was elegantly humble in delivering a single, inoffensive thought into the collective conscience of the...
  • Now the Washington Post Admits Trump Did Not Incite the Capitol Riot

    With the second bogus impeachment in the books, the Washington Post has finally seen fit to admit that President Trump did not incite the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his speech, acknowledging that it was, in fact, planned in advance. The article, published Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration, declares in its headline “Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say” and opens with the following paragraphs.

    On the eve of his inauguration, Politico published an article that contains an anecdote that is actually quite disturbing. For higher-profile remarks, [Biden would] obsessively rehearse portions until he committed them to memory. And at times through the various iterations of outlining remarks, Biden could grow downright ornery. “I would never say this,” Biden once snapped at an aide, aghast over the prepared remarks he was reviewing, according to a person in the room during a speech prep session last year. “Where did you get this from?’” The aide explained that Biden had just said it in a public speech...
  • Clueless Chuck Todd: Just So 'Lazy' to Claim Media Is Biased!

    Newsbusters ^ | January 19, 2021 | P.J. Gladnick
    The guest writer of Sunday's Politico Playbook was Meet The Press host Chuck Todd. Unlike in the case of the partisan politically correct Todd, there was no emergency zoom call of over 200 Politico staffers throwing a hissy fit about Todd writing in their publication as was the case recently with Ben Shapiro. Of course, the reason was that Todd could be always relied upon to faithfully promote the Democratic Party narrative as he has done over the years. Todd, who has been obviously biased for his whole career, is unhappy when conservatives point out liberal media bias. He whined,...

    CNN is making no mistake about it: It wants to censor and close Newsmax from broadcasting as a cable news channel. Apparently jolted by the fact Newsmax has skyrocketed to become the 4th highest-rated cable news channel in the country, the liberal CNN is decrying what it calls Newsmax's "election denialism" and is seeking to have it "deplatformed" from cable and satellite systems across the nation.

    The Big Tech giants of Silicon Valley have overreached in pushing far-left positions, sending a message to conservatives: you’re not welcome. It became patently obvious yet again last week when executives from Google parent company Alphabet essentially said conservative viewpoints are illegitimate.Alarms first sounded for conservatives when Mozilla, creators of the Firefox browser, fired their CEO over his financial support of California’s Proposition 8—a referendum against recognizing gay marriage that a majority of Californian voters passed.Silicon Valley went full tilt in 2016, when several Big Tech CEOs and board members called a closed-door meeting to strategize on how to keep...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar criticized a CNN report late Friday night which he claims mischaracterized the nature of his resignation from the Trump administration. “Contrary to the @CNN chyron, I am still here serving the American people at HHS,” Azar tweeted Friday night. CNN’s Anderson Cooper reported on air that Azar had resigned and “taken a swipe” at President Donald Trump by citing the Capitol riot in his resignation letter.

    Katie Couric appears to have gone far beyond her days as a straight news journalist and taken a sharp turn to the left. On Friday night, the 64-year-old former co-anchor of NBC's "Today" show and later anchor of the "CBS Evening News" openly expressed disdain for President Trump and the Republican Party during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." During the show's panel discussion segment, host Bill Maher kicked off a conversation on the GOP lawmakers who overwhelmingly backed the president in Wednesday's second impeachment vote. Couric, who is set to guest host on "Jeopardy!," had no...

    Look, we knew going into things that a Biden election win would lead to a tectonic shift in the tone by the media, but this is becoming embarrassing. The surprise is not only how low they would stoop but how rapidly we have arrived at this stage. There are chapped lips already across the journalism gentry from all the throne-kissing taking place the past two months.Over at Politico they have begun a new series to shed light on the incoming president-elect, because after half a century of public office this man is a complete cipher, is the assumption. Dubbed ‘’Bidenology,’’...
  • CNN's Chuck Todd melts down on air when his bias is challenged, then makes it worse: A bully has more than met his match, and – like most bullies -- has disgraced himself when challenged

    A bully has more than met his match, and – like most bullies -- has disgraced himself when challenged. Chuck Todd is a bully in possession of a huge weapon, NBC News, of which he is political director, and his perch as host of its premier program, Meet the Press. But all it took was a challenge from normally mild-mannered Senator Ron Johnson to have Todd shaking in his chair, his voice cracking, and abruptly ending his interview on Meet the Press.Todd must have been expecting another Republican patsy when he framed the interview (complete video embedded below) as about...

    CNN reporter and self-styled resistance warrior Jim Acosta said covering President Trump “might merit hazard pay” and suggested his time doing so was a “non-stop national emergency.” Acosta, who frequently makes the story about him as he desperately seeks attention from his left-wing media peers, made the comments for a piece published by The Atlantic. The CNN reporter insists his “on-air indignation” for the President was real and warranted due to his treatment of the media, before admitting he had no intentions of being so combative with President-elect Joe Biden. ... Acosta went on to allege Trump’s treatment of the...

    CNN‘s Jim Acosta and Jake Tapper both predicted in new interviews that the media will change under the incoming Biden administration, arguing that the new president will likely provide for less combative coverage. Mr. Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent who has repeatedly made headlines for his confrontations with President Trump and even wrote a book about his contentious relationship with the current administration, told The Atlantic in a piece published Tuesday that he “couldn’t stomach” the president’s attacks on the press and his “fake news” tagline. “The drama has made him famous,” The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins reports, “but...

    WASHINGTON - The video message that plunged Washington into chaos was filmed in secret. President Donald Trump stood in the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room, holiday garland and gleaming ornaments draped on the fireplace behind him, and spoke into the camera not to deliver warm Christmas wishes, but to threaten to detonate Congress’ $900 billion COVID-19 relief and year-end package. The video was released without warning Tuesday night, its recording orchestrated by White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and kept from all but a handful of aides. Few Republicans or even White House staffers knew Wednesday what Trump planned...

    It should be no surprise as 2020 comes to an end that corporate media covered a horrific year as horrifically as expected. From its laudatory coverage of the presidential impeachment it encouraged to the blatant gaslighting about this year’s riotous protests, the nation’s least accountable institution performed as usual, only escalating its protection of Democrats and leftism, and shameless manipulation of the facts while demanding total power to determine them.

    The New York Times has retracted the core of its hit 2018 podcast series Caliphate after an internal review found the paper failed to heed red flags indicating that the man it relied upon for its narrative about the allure of terrorism could not be trusted to tell the truth. The newspaper has reassigned its star terrorism reporter, Rukmini Callimachi, who hosted the series. Caliphate relayed the tale about the radicalization of a young Canadian who went to Syria, joined the Islamic State and became an executioner for the extremist group before escaping its hold. Canadian authorities this fall accused...

    Tax cuts for the wealthy have long drawn support from conservative lawmakers and economists who argue that such measures will "trickle down" and eventually boost jobs and incomes for everyone else. But a new study from the London School of Economics says 50 years of such tax cuts have only helped one group - the rich.The new paper, examines 18 developed countries - from Australia to the United States - over a 50-year period from 1965 to 2015. The study compared countries that passed tax cuts in a specific year, such as the U.S. in 1982 when President Ronald Reagan...

    WASHINGTON - Millions of Americans are watching with anticipation as the first coronavirus vaccines are administered, but doctors advising President-elect Joe Biden are raising concerns that the timeline for widespread distribution may be longer than anticipated. The team of medical professionals advising Biden are warning internally that the program he will inherit from outgoing President Donald Trump may not live up to expectations of fast and widespread relief. Instead of mass distribution to the general population in the coming months, pandemic-fatigued Americans may find approval delays, distribution disruptions and insufficient quantities. Getting the vaccine to every American who wants to...

    Would you consider yourself a reporter at this point or is that more of a former job description?' one critic asked White House correspondent April Ryan raised eyebrows on Friday after she appeared to endorse the idea that journalists shouldn't reveal contradictions between President-elect Joe Biden's public and private statements. On Thursday, Ryan appeared to express disapproval that a recording of Biden claiming "defund the police" rhetoric hurt down-ballot Democrats in last month's elections was leaked to The Intercept, which duly reported on it. "I asked an incoming White House source was the meeting contentious with civil rights leader and...
