    Fired ESPN talker Keith Olbermann posted a video to Twitter calling on Joe Biden to “ban” Donald Trump, several elected Republicans, and Trump supporters from ever running for office because they are “insurrectionists.” Olbermann posted his spittle-specked video on Thursday, calling for the disenfranchisement of Trump, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, Florida congresswoman Lauren Boebert, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

    The Washington Post is going to have to cope. Its dismissal of Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) warnings about the Boston Bomber getting paid under President Joe Biden’s gargantuan stimulus bill has resurfaced to haunt the rag.
  • ABC Saves Biden's Bacon in Year-end Roundup

    01/05/2022 3:43:13 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | January 5, 2022 | Tim Graham
    One of the most disturbing concepts in politics is the media elite providing the "first draft of history." You can test-drive this with a look at ABC's two-hour year-end special that aired on Dec. 27. It was mostly about celebrities and athletes and some natural disasters. But when resident Joe Biden came up, ABC was energetically playing defense. It began with Biden's inauguration and former President Donald Trump's second impeachment proceeding, over the Jan. 6 riot -- when Trump was already replaced. ABC anchorman David Muir announced: "Back at the White House -- A flurry of executive orders, plans to...

    Albert Hunt, formerly the executive editor of Bloomberg News, recently wrote a column in the Hill titled, "Let's Be Honest: 2021 Wasn't All Bad." He liked the idea that President Trump no longer was in the White House and the fact that for Joe Biden, 2021 was "scandal free." … But in a commentary at Fox News, Jonathan Turley pointed out 2021 was "scandal free" for Joe Biden except for the scandal over Hunter Biden's laptop.
  • Face the Nation whipping up fear of ‘violent’, ‘extremist’ ‘insurrectionist movement’

    A patina of academic respectability can't hide the fear porn. With the anniversary of last year’s January 6 Capitol incursion this week, the agitprop media is doing its best to instill fear of a bogeyman caricature of conservatives. Yesterday’s edition of Face the Nation added a patina of academic respectability in an interview with Professor Robert Pape of the University of Chicago, who has studied “insurgencies in war zones” and applies that model to the January 6 events of last year, which were, as the media likes to say about far more violent riots, “mostly peaceful.” You would never know...

    It was not a good year for the national press. From the Chris Cuomo scandal to corporate journalists inventing stories about violent Border Patrol agents and Republican-led witch hunts, 2021 marked yet another lousy year in media credibility. Indeed, if 2021 proved anything, it’s that corporate newsrooms are perfectly content to burp out the same nonsense, make the same mistakes, embrace the same ignorance, overlook the same ethical lapses, and parrot the same partisan talking points that have made them about as distrusted as Congress. The following is a list of the worst major media moments of 2021. For brevity’s...
  • CNN’s Chalian: Covering Biden ‘May Be a Bit Easier’ than Trump Because of ‘the Deliberate Misinformation and Lying’ under Trump

    On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Washington Week,” CNN Political Director David Chalian stated that “in one aspect,” covering the Biden administration “may be a bit easier than it was during the Trump administration because of the deliberate misinformation and lying that was occurring.” Chalian responded to criticism that the coverage of the Biden administration has been too tough by stating that all administrations complain

    The two biggest misconceptions about the legacy media are “that we are lying” and that they manifest “political bias,” according to CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” The media’s bias actually benefits the people journalists are biased against, the show insisted. “The single biggest misconception is that we are lying,” guest Mara Schiavocampo told host Brian Stelter on Sunday’s episode, which tackled alleged common myths about the state of American journalism. “There is a lot of media mistrust,” she said accurately. Schiavocampo said she frequently encounters media misconceptions “when I’m at a cocktail party.” “I hear this all the time. And here’s what...
  • REPUBLICANS POUNCE! WashPost Cries GOP ‘Primed to Pounce on Inflation’ in 2022

    NewsBusters ^ | 12/29/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    The Washington Post tried to whip out the generic “Republicans have pounced” cliché in order to spin some of the attention on skyrocketing prices away from President Joe Biden. The liberal newspaper released a revealing story headlined, “Inflation emerging as top economic challenge in 2022.” Strong consumer demand in addition to ongoing supply chain problems “threaten to prolong sharply rising prices well into 2022, potentially making inflation the premier economic challenge of the new year.” The Post conceded that inflation “defied many economists’ expectations in 2021 by rising at the fastest pace in nearly 40 years,” and that “[e]verything from...

    CNN has gone above and beyond the call of propaganda to spin economic coverage to benefit President Joe Biden’s White House. A new poll it released shows that effort has floundered. CNN’s new poll of registered voters found that Americans gift-wrapped Biden with the “lowest net economic rating of any president at this point through their first term since at least Jimmy Carter in 1977.” Fifty-five percent of voters disapprove of Biden in comparison to 44 percent who approve. The average of all polls taken in December has Biden at -13 points on the economy, according to CNN. That's “18...

    Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann announced Friday that he settled a $275 million defamation lawsuit against NBC. Neither party publicized the terms of the settlement. However, Sandmann asked for $275 million in damages in his lawsuit against NBC Universal and MSNBC. “At this time I would like to release that NBC and I have reached a settlement,” Sandmann tweeted. “The terms are confidential. ”NBC is the third corporate media organization to settle with Sandmann after he and his classmates were accused of mocking Native American activist Nathan Phillips during last January’s March for Life event.

    The core indexes for U.S. inflation just continue to soar to the moon, while the media behave like apostles for President Joe Biden’s leftist economic agenda and spin bad news in his favor. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported at 8:30 a.m. that the Producer Price Index for final demand, which “measures costs” from the perspective of the industries that make products, skyrocketed a whopping 9.6 percent in November. CNBC said the PPI spiked at “the fastest pace on record.” The results beat economists’ expectations of a 9.2 percent increase, according to CNBC. This immediately follows the recent spike in...

    A new analysis reveals the extraordinary left-wing bias of website ratings firm NewsGuard, which should concern every American given that it is expanding its reach into cable and broadcast TV news. Liberal outlets were rated 27 points higher on average than news organizations on the right. MRC Free Speech America analyzed the NewsGuard ratings of media outlets based on a list compiled by AllSides classified by their “bias” on a left-to-right scale. The average NewsGuard score for the “left” and “lean left” outlets — which included leftist outlets like Jacobin and The Nation — was 93/100. While the average rating...

    A sweeping $1.9 trillion spending plan, known as the Build Back Better bill, is making its way through Congress and could make a key part of President Joe Biden's economic agenda a reality. A majority of the funding is focused on transforming the nation's social safety net by reducing the cost of child and health care, as well as combating climate change. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the legislation would increase the deficit by $367 billion over the next 10 years. But the White House has worked to make the case that the bill will be fully paid for...

    Over the past eight decades there have many frauds promoted by the mainstream media. Perhaps the most notable, and consequential, was the media persuading an overwhelming majority of citizens over the years that their brand of journalism is a not only the epitome of a noble profession but one that always strives to be fair and balanced. But the legacy of the mainstream media is that it has always been the cheerleaders and propaganda arm of the left and the Democrat Party. The modern-day mainstream media can trace its beginning to the passage of the Communications Act of 1934, which...

The Telegraph reports that a Wikipedia entry which details “mass killings under Communist regimes,” is at risk of deletion over claims of bias within the entry. The Wikipedia page which outlines the details of millions of people under one-party Communist regimes such as the Soviet Union and China has been flagged for deletion.

    Like many people, I followed the Kyle Rittenhouse trial out of Kenosha, Wisconsin fairly closely over the past several weeks. As discussed in Jane’s post on Sunday, that trial proved to be a riveting instance of a totally false and racialized progressive narrative (“white supremacist vigilante crossed state lines with illegal firearm to go on shooting spree against innocent mostly peaceful BLM protesters”) getting completely contradicted by incontestable facts (mostly videos) introduced in evidence at the trial. But following the Rittenhouse trial has inherently meant little time left to follow another high-profile trial unfolding simultaneously in Brunswick, Georgia — the...
