In an astonishing display of media malpractice, CBS News quietly released proof–two days before the election, far too late to reach the media and the public–that President Barack Obama lied to the public about the Benghazi attack, as well as about his later claim to have called the attack “terrorism” from the beginning.
CBS unveiled additional […]
Yesterday Mitt Romney turned a previously scheduled campaign event in Ohio into a hurricane relief event. Romney asked supporters to bring canned goods and other supplies to help storm victims recover on the East Coast. He only spoke for ten minutes at the event and quickly jumped in to help load supplies. His campaign bus […]
Bogus AP poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks (Biased Poll - The media Want you to get sucked into voting Obama for the second time) - Sympathy Votes
WASHINGTON (AP) — Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.
Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, […]
The recent fiasco in Libya and the manner in which President Obama’s media minions have abetted his deception provides an epitaph for the soon to be demised Obama administration:
Four Americans died. Obama lied. The press complied.
Republicans have been trying to highlight the terrorist attack on our Libyan embassy for weeks, but recognizing how damaging this episode […]
Journalism: If the mainstream press had any self-respect, presidential debate moderator Candy Crowley would be out of work today. Even by the media-bias standards we’ve come to expect, she set a new, unforgivable low.
In a pre-debate interview with the Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik, Crowley talked about how she saw her role as moderator.
“These are two […]
Washington Post: Romney vs. Obama and Crowley (Crowley and Obama previously coordinated the Obama answers)
The economy, abortion, and national security took center stage, but the moderator stole the show at Tuesday night’s presidential debate at Hofstra University. While liberals were racing to announce, “Obama is back,” the debate resulted in a firefight that clearly highlighted the contrasts between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Obama. From their leadership […]
PPP, a Democratic polling outfit, has long been viewed by suspicion by not only conservatives but by independent, credible pollsters. Now there is all the more reason to discount its “polling” as shoddy partisanship.
I spoke by phone today with Wisconsin voter Dave Summers, who lives in the Madison area. He told me, “I got a […]
Leading into tomorrow’s presidential debate, journalists are busy setting expectations for the candidates. On Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos argued that Mitt Romney is under “huge, huge” pressure: “He is behind right now. He is behind nationally, he’s behind in all of the battleground states. This is the last big audience that Mitt Romney […]
Fewer Americans closely following political news now than in previous election years
by Lymari Morales
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans’ distrust in the media hit a new high this year, with 60% saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. Distrust is up from the past few […]
Game changer” — NBC’s Brian Williams
“Seismic” — ABC’s Diane Sawyer
“Shaken up the race.” — CBS’s Scott Pelley
Those were the reactions of the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening news anchors to the hidden camera tape of Mitt Romney expressing a basic breakdown of voters who weren’t likely to vote for him. What was a simple […]
On her MSNBC program this afternoon, NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell said the network would not air the clip of then-State Senator Barack Obama endorsing redistribution in 1988 because the network could not “authenticate” the clip.
“Let’s explain this redistribution issue because we have not authenticated this 14-year-old tape from Loyola College when Barack Obama was a […]
The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) Wednesday evening newscasts devoted more than 9 minutes (9 minutes, 28 seconds) to the flap over Mitt Romney’s statement criticizing the administration’s handling of the Libyan crisis but spent just 25 seconds on questions regarding Barack Obama’s Middle-East policy, a greater than 20-to-1 disparity.

86 Percent of ABC, CBS, NBC Evening News Stories on Romney’s Overseas Trip Emphasized His ‘Missteps’
I get that Mitt Romney’s overseas trip may or may not have been the most well-executed presidential campaign booster, but it appears the networks are determined to forego any flowery rhetoric they reserved for 2008 Obama and emphasize Romney’s failures. According to the Media Research Center,
“Mitt Romney’s week-long international trip resulted in unrelentingly negative coverage from […]
Back in May, Ann Romney, wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, wore a $990 Reed Krakoff silk shirt for a media appearance. The item of clothing set off a media firestorm, with the Romneys widely accused of being “out of touch” with average Americans.
In particular, the Washington Post wrote that the $990 blouse “will […]
CNN Plays ‘Stupid Girls’ Before Story About Sarah Palin Visiting Chick-Fil-A (New Low for Liberal Media)
Remember last November when Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was disgracefully greeted with the song “Lyin’ A– B–ch” during her appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon?
On Sunday, Pink’s “Stupid Girls” was played before a CNN Sunday Morning piece about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin visiting a Chick-fil-A restaurant to show support for the embattled company (video follows with transcript and […]
CBS, which devoted four on-air segments between May 30 and June 1, 2012 to the “hundreds of Catholics” who rallied in support of dissenting nuns, ignored the tens of thousands who came from all over the U.S. to see conservative talk show host Glenn Beck speak on Saturday. In fact, all of the Big Three networks have […]
In television journalism, few reporters are as controversial as Brian Ross of ABC News.
The investigative correspondent has landed major scoops and won prestigious awards for his reporting on the Peace Corps, Solyndra, and U.S. antiterrorism efforts — to name just a few. And yet, he has also produced more high-level haphazard reporting than perhaps any […]
ABC News reporter Brian Ross committed what used to be a fatal mistake to a journalist’s career: He blurted out a wild, unsubstantiated, speculative observation that hadn’t been vetted by anyone and was explosively political at the same time.
Here is the exchange between ABC News chief investigator Brian Ross and host George Stephanopoulos about apparent […]
Three hours after reporter Brian Ross attempted to connect a mass killing in Colorado to the Tea Party, ABC News admitted that the story on Good Morning America was “incorrect.” The retraction was added to the top of an existing online article about the murders.
The story conceded, “An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that […]
When Barack Obama insulted job creators everywhere, last Friday, by charging: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen,” the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks didn’t pounce on the politically damaging remark. It took five full days and Romney making it the centerpiece of his speech on Tuesday […]
