    MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on Trish Regan Primetime on Friday and called out CNN and journalists who won’t do the basics of investigating controversies like Hunter Biden’s role in the Ukrainian company Burisma. Talking about the media’s resistance to covering the story (and forced mentions of it by Republicans during impeachment hearings), Bozell blasted, “They are upset that the Republicans are bringing this up. They are having to cover the Republicans live. But if it were up to them, and in fact when it has been up to them, they haven't said a thing.” The MRC President connected it...
  • Nancy Pelosi says the media have become Trump's 'accomplices': 'All they do is enable him'

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., views the media in a way that will likely make conservatives' heads turn, portraying them in a new interview as "accomplices" of the president. "I do think that he was assisted by the communications industry, not just Hollywood, but the press as well, because all they do is enable him, and that is really a sad thing," she told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Wednesday. She added that she calls her friends in the press "accomplices" and seemed to push back on the idea that Trump's words should make news. "I've said to...

    The nation's leading newspapers have asserted their role as the most important "independent fact-checkers" in politics. So why do they fail to fact-check their own interviewees? On Twitter, Jeryl Bier noted The New York Times had to add an embarrassing correction to a two-month old story on Friday. Reporter Trip Gabriel did an entire story on a Trump voter iin Erie, Pennsylvania changing his mind....except records showed the man never voted. The original story on October 7 began: "Mark Graham, a real estate appraiser in this faded manufacturing hub, sat with friends at a gym named FitnessU on the morning...

    CNN has updated its report that President Trump continues to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated concerns expressed by his staff that such phone calls leave the president vulnerable to surveillance by foreign governments.  In a tweet on Saturday, President Trump called upon "Fake News" CNN to retract the story that he describes as "totally false information and reporting." Trump also tweeted that he hasn't "had a personal cell phone for years" and only uses "government approved and issued phones."  Fake News @CNN is reporting that I am “still using personal cell phone for calls despite...

    <p>Within moments of Donald Trump’s upset victory in the 2016 election, investors began stampeding into the shares of America’s steelmakers. After all, this was a business he had explicitly pledged to rescue. “Your steel industry—we’re bringing it back, bringing it back, folks!” he had promised a wildly cheering crowd in Pittsburgh the previous April. So when trading opened the morning after election day, the buy orders were stacked high and prices began to rocket. By week’s end the S&P 500 was up 2%, but Steel Dynamics was up 13%, Nucor up 14%, Pittsburgh’s own U.S. Steel up 23%. For a Rust Belt industry in distress, deliverance had apparently come.</p>

    Now that Kamala Harris has dropped out of the 2020 race, Julian Castro, whose campaign is also fading fast, is blaming the media in part for holding Harris to a double standard. As everyone knows, if there’s one thing every Democrat has to worry about at election time, it’s bias from the mainstream media. At least, when journalists aren’t helping you pick out clothes at a boutique.

    Sometimes, MSNBC analysts manage to pack an unbelievable amount of stupid into a short amount of time. Such was the case on Tuesday as Donny Deutsch ranted about Republicans bringing metaphorical machine guns to the impeachment fight, the country not surviving Donald Trump, and how the “facts” and “laws” “are not going to protect us. Replying to Deadline: White House guest Heidi Przybla, Deutch fumed that simple “facts and the laws are not going to protect us right now” from Trump. So, what should be done instead? He continued, using violent imagry: “And the point being for the Democrats, we...

    Our betters in the MSM, and related ruling-class mouthpieces, have set the narrative: the lackluster, too-crazy pack of Democrat presidential candidates, even with a few token billionaires, will ultimately give way to the entry of Michelle Obama into the race. The former First Lady, author of an apparently best-selling memoir, will inject palpable blue energy throughout the nation, return black America to a 95+% Democrat voting bloc, consolidate the Obama voting coalitions that won two presidential elections, and the evil interloper Trump will be sent packing. Don’t buy this narrative. In a country of 320+ million people, there is always...

    Bloomberg News Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait released a memo last week saying the news agency will not “investigate” Michael Bloomberg, who has entered the 2020 race for the presidential nomination. “We will continue our tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries. We cannot treat Mike’s Democratic competitors differently from him,” Micklethwait wrote. Bloomberg News, though, will continue to investigate President Trump and Republicans. That doesn’t sit well with the Trump campaign. “The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and...

    As the dominant media in the United States have degenerated into propaganda organs for the Left, a few honest reporters have distinguished themselves by sticking to the truth, even as it has cost them their high-visibility posts.  Sharyl Attkisson, a three-decade veteran of MSM broadcasting who was spied on by the Obama administration (her computer was intruded upon) and is fighting back (she needs your support!), is holding her former MSM colleagues responsible for their excesses in attacking President Trump. Now she is compiling a growing list of notable media mistakes in reporting false stories about President Trump.  It's the Fake News Follies.  In...

Nance said, “Donald Trump decided he likes war criminals, and he calls the warfighter and a new word he adopted. Need I remind you that he’s a five-time draft dodger.

    With the way forward on impeachment not looking so hot, NBC political director and Meet the Press moderator, Chuck Todd did some venting during an appearance on Sunday Today. According to him, polls showing the public’s sourness on impeachment or declining support were not “organic” because of political ads running on TV. Then there was his complaint that House Republicans were somehow “bullying” their Democratic colleagues by pointing out the flaws in the Democratic-led process. Amid their discussion, Sunday Today host Willie Geist shifted gears to talk about how poor the polling for impeachment was, since the public didn’t appear...

    The Newsweek reporter who wrote an inaccurate story about President Trump's Thanksgiving Day plans has been fired. The outlet's original story claimed the president only planned on tweeting and golfing during his holiday break, neglecting to mention his trip to Afghanistan. Newsweek’s Jessica Kwong, whose Twitter handle identifies her as a political reporter "covering Trump administration and family," initially published the article Thursday morning, before the president's trip to Afghanistan was announced publicly. The story's initial headline was, “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more.” “Newsweek investigated the failures that led to the publication of the inaccurate report...

    How paranoid were the Nixon-hating TV networks during Watergate? Far enough out there that, according to liberal former ABC correspondent Carole Simpson, they feared that instead of resigning, President Nixon would announce a military coup supporting him. [snip] CAROLE SIMPSON: I have to tell you, though, on the night he gave the resignation speech, I was a baby reporter then. But they had me out in Chicago, we were in major cities across America waiting for the riots or whatever that's going to happen after his announcement because people weren't sure that he wasn't -- the camera wouldn't pull back...

Bondy, represents Lev Parnas, the recently indicted Soviet-born American who worked with Giuliani to push claims of Democratic corruption in Ukraine,” CNN reported. “Bondy said that Parnas was...
