    CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart blamed the press on Sunday for treating President Biden "unfairly," arguing that the Biden administration does not deserve to be covered with the same "snarky attitude" that was afforded to former President 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

    SNIP NPR music critic Ann Powers uncorked a long, unforgiving treatise on how it doesn’t matter that the Beatles were progressive and loved Black music because they were still somehow part of making rock music white and exclusionary: “Rock’s defining narrative still stands alongside others that reflect the historic segregation of Anglo-American social spheres.” The Beatles and the Rolling Stones wouldn’t play segregated venues and paid tribute to Black musicians who inspired them. But Powers wrote, “As they became rock’s norm, they allowed white fans to enjoy what the late great music writer Greg Tate identified as a pasteurized form...
  • Brooks: Biden ‘Created’ ‘Turbocharged Economy’ That Has Inflation, He’s Right to Try to ‘Keep Things Going’

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks said that the Biden administration has “created this turbocharged economy,” which does have the bad side of inflation, but despite the inflation issue, the Biden administration is “right to try to be aggressive on this and keep things going.” Brooks stated, “[T]hey put their pedal to the metal. I give them credit for that. They’ve really created this turbocharged economy, which has its good sides, incredible job growth. It has its bad sides, the inflation. But I think they’re right to try to be aggressive on this and keep things...

    Beatles fans of all ages can flock to Disney Plus for a new documentary called "Get Back" that reassembles footage of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr creating music as the band begins to dissolve. NPR used the occasion for guilt-trip clickbait: "How did we get stuck with the idea that four white guys make a rock band?" NPR music critic Ann Powers uncorked a long, unforgiving treatise on how it doesn't matter that the Beatles were progressive and loved black music because they were still somehow part of making rock music white and exclusionary: "Rock's defining...

    Al Gore has been pushing the unproven climate change hypothesis ever since he left the Clinton administration, produced the 2006 fantasy movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” and begged an unwilling massage therapist, “Come on, Baby, Release my Chakra,”...Inconvenient Truth won awards, but then again, so did Andrew Cuomo’s daily COVID briefings. The Gore film was riddled with misconceptions and silly predictions. To make matters worse, Gore himself admitted on the tenth anniversary of the documentary this past May that the film is flawed, although he qualified his concession by insisting that he had underestimated the seriousness of the problem. Now that...

He is doing well, out of house arrest, and he seems to think things are really moving along.”

    In a vote Wednesday, New York's city council approved a ban on natural gas in newly constructed buildings, joining cities like San Jose and San Francisco that have made similar commitments to reduce emissions. Moving away from natural gas means that stoves and heat pumps will be powered by electricity instead, cutting down on carbon emissions. Nearly 40% of carbon emissions in the country — and more than half of New York City's emissions — come from buildings. The new ban, with 40 votes in the affirmative and seven votes against the measure, applies to buildings that are seven stories...

    The White House repeated on Monday that President Joe Biden plans to run for reelection in 2024 as failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continues rebuilding her political profile. “The president has every intention of running for reelection,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during the daily briefing on Monday. On Sunday, Clinton warned that former President Donald Trump would run for president again in 2024 and that there would be dire consequences for the United States if he won. “I think that could be the end of our democracy,” she said in an interview with NBC’s Willie Geist. “Not...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Court of Appeals won't order a hospital to use a deworming drug to treat a man who has health problems related to COVID-19. The court said it won't disrupt the judgment of doctors at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor. “A court directive in this matter could open the door for a flood of similar suits from other patients with COVID-19, not to mention other conditions, suing to obtain care that is contrary to hospital policies,” the court said Friday. The daughter of a 68-year-old man sued after doctors refused to use...

    As it did in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, the major media relentlessly trumpeted a false story, this time about Jussie Smollett. In both cases the tales were of white supremacists committing horrific crimes. In both cases, when the fabulist tales were rejected by jurors who heard and weighed the evidence, the outcome was ignored or downplayed. But doubtless the distrust of their fellow citizens among the Black community in Kenosha and, then Chicago, and perhaps the country, was heightened by these lies. In both cases, celebrities and politicians bought and promoted the fake stories. And improbable it was unless you...

    During an interview with Colorado Public Radio on Thursday released on Friday, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) defended his refusal to reinstitute a state mask mandate by saying that the coronavirus “emergency is over” and state public health officials don’t “get to tell people what to wear.” Polis also argued that because vaccines have been available for a long time, “People who want to be protected are.” And that “If you haven’t been vaccinated, that’s your choice. I respect that. But it’s your fault when you’re in the hospital with COVID.”

    NPR's CEO and president, Vivian Schiller, has been forced to resign, the radio broadcaster's media correspondent said Wednesday, following an undercover sting in which a senior executive was videotaped describing Tea Party members as "racist." On Tuesday, Schiller had condemned the comments by Ron Schiller (no relation) — NPR Foundation's senior vice president for fundraising at the time — that were secretly filmed by political activist James O'Keefe of "Project Veritas." But a Wednesday statement from the chairman of NPR's board of directors, Dave Edwards, said the board had accepted Vivian Schiller's resignation "with deep regret." It was effective immediately......

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that former President Donald Trump supporters feared “civil rights and human rights, the cultural changes.” Clinton said, “I do think that we are facing a crisis of democracy, a crisis of legitimacy, a crisis that really goes to the heart of what the future of our country and many others around the world will be. So I spend my time trying to figure out what we can do about it. I am not ever going to give up because there’s just too much at stake.”

    Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges Friday after pleading self-defense in the deadly Kenosha shootings that became a flashpoint in the debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice in the U.S.Watch Richards’ remarks in the player above.Rittenhouse, 18, began to choke up, fell forward toward the defense table and then hugged one of his attorneys as he heard a court clerk recite “not guilty” five times.Rittenhouse’s defense attorney, Mark Richards, said his client was greatly relieved by the verdict.“There were times we doubted the case. There were times we were confident and to say that we were relieved would...

    Both sides have rested their case and they proceed to try to convince the jury that their client is either guilty as charged (including lesser offenses) or Not Guilty by reason of self-defense. So far, my favorite line from the trial came from the prosecution: ADA Binger: "Mr. Rittenhouse, you play Call of Duty, right? Isn't the goal of that game to kill everyone in sight?" KYLE: "Well, yea, but it is a game . . . it isn't reality."

    38. Fri. Nov. 12, 2021 Testimony, even from the opposing side, in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse proved the falsity of hundreds of media reports. Rittenhouse, who went to Wisconsin in August 2020 to protect storefronts and businesses being looted and burned by rioters, shot and killed two attackers during violent protests, and shot a third man. Media reports widely declared Rittenhouse, then 17-years old, to be a murderous white supremacist (although all three of the men shot were white and, according to evidence, had been attacking or pointing a loaded gun at Rittenhouse at the time). 37. Fri. Nov....

    As the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse has progressed, Americans who hope for a successful conviction have begun to focus their attentions on the true villain of the piece: the 75-year-old presiding judge, Bruce Schroeder. Among the many accusations that have been leveled at Schroeder this week are that he is “biased,” that he is “prejudiced,” that he is a secret “conservative,” “right-winger,” or “Trumpist,” that he is a “a gun nut,” that he is a “a racist” or wannabe member of the Klan, that he is the “worst judge in town,” and that he is attempting to parlay this trial...
