    On day one of the 2018 government shutdown, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came out and claimed that he offered President Trump funding for his border wall in exchange for protection for so-called Dreamers via the Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he turned it down. Since then, the liberal media have been running around claiming that Trump was the reason an agreement couldn’t be reached. But during Sunday’s Meet the Press, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) chastised the media for buying the claim “hook, line, and sinker.” The dust-up with NBC host Chuck Todd began after Cotton was explaining that...

    During a debate about how important it was to listen to the views of average Trump voters on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday, political commentator Jeff Greenfield noted that the outlet hyped the Russia investigation to the point where it seemed as though the President would be indicted at any second. This, as political commentator Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress and former Hillary Clinton policy director, claimed that the media didn’t listen to the anti-Trump resistance enough. Towards the end of their discussion, Greenfield was commenting on how many people listen to certain media outlets because it catered...

    Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh came locked and loaded for Wednesday’s show, torching the liberal media as “childish,” “unstable,” and “entirely unfit to discharge their constitutional duties” in light of their “unhinged instability” at Tuesday’s White House press briefing concerning President Trump’s health. Limbaugh also hammered the liberal media as having turned the briefing room into “nothing more than Romper Room without a teacher” with “the kids playing in the sandbox, not getting their toys and not getting their lunches and not getting recess.” “Ladies and gentlemen, the childish display, the childish exposition and behavior of the Drive-By Media...

    CNN’s media reporter Brian Stelter got his long-awaited wish granted last week the liberal media en mass started openly questioned President Trump’s mental acuity followed the release of Fire and Fury, the dubiously sourced anti-Trump book that was light on facts but loaded with gossip. Despite how his show was called “Reliable Sources,” Stelter spent his entire Sunday show glorifying the book and praising those calling the President’s mental stability into question. “The tip-toeing is over! The whispers are turning into shouts! President Trump's fitness for office is now the top story in the country. Reporters and some lawmakers are...

    In 2017, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta gave viewers free doctorates in how to become showboaters and throw hissy fits. No matter where it was, Acosta left his mark on the year in media for all the wrong reasons.  Liberal journalists and White House critics view Acosta as an indispensable beacon of reason possessing a needed sense of urgency, but others (including this space) see him as a leading reason for why the media continued to lose credibility in 2017.  Before I go crazy looking at Acosta’s NewsBusters archive, here’s the ten craziest Acosta moments from the past...

    In an extensive piece published by The Intercept on Saturday, co-founder of the news site Glenn Greenwald excoriated CNN (as well as a host of other news outlets) for recklessly advancing agenda driven stories involving the Russia investigation, with no transparency when the stories blow up in their face and go viral with fake news. Greenwald began by noting how “Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time.”“The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout...

    The Sunday morning shows were dominated by the liberal media’s wild fantasies regarding what was to come next in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation after Michael Flynn’s plea deal on Friday. But during an appearance on ABC’s This Week, former Attorney General for George W. Bush, Michael Mukasey wrote off the media’s hopes and dream of something much bigger coming down the pike as just “speculation” and “heavy breathing” on their part. When describing what the plea deal meant for the investigation, Mukasey told Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos: “What I made of it is that a lot of the...

    On MSNBC’s 11th Hour Monday night, disgraced fake news anchor Brian Williams warned of the “danger” of President Trump calling out liberal media bias at CNN International. The left-wing channel’s favorite “Republican,” Steve Schmidt, eagerly agreed with Williams, claiming the President was endangering journalists and behaving like an “autocrat.” “What’s the danger, in your view, of the President, as we saw over the weekend, declaring a network, in this case CNN International, to be fake and telling a global audience the same thing? And perhaps deciding to give a trophy to the network of his choosing that’s been reporting, giving...

    On Monday afternoon, some journalists provided another small nail in the coffin of the media’s credibility when they lost their collective minds on Twitter over White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders asking reporters to share what they’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving week.  Sanders still allowed reporters to ask questions and most responded with thoughtful answers, but a few ignored it (including the Associated Press’s Zeke Miller and Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson). For some journalists on Twitter, they lambasted Sanders for her “bizarre” exercise that one labeled “harmful to a democracy.”  NPR’s Domenico Montanaro was the most offended, showcasing...

    New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters on Saturday joined the odd new trend in the mainstream press of attacking Fox News for actually covering political stories besides Donald Trump -- especially those involving Hillary Clinton’s and Russia. Fox and other right-leaning outlets were also mocked for not obsessing as much as the rest of the press on President Trump’s Russia controversies in “As Russia Inquiry Widens, an Alternative Narrative Emerges on the Right.” Another Times article accuses the network of “pushing its own version of reality,” as if that’s not what the Times does every day. It’s apparently easier to...

    Mainstream media bias isn't just against President Trump, but also Israel. On Friday, CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS published headlines equating three terrorists behind clashes in the West Bank during the day with three Israelis who were stabbed to death the following night in the area: CNN.com.com: "3 Israelis killed in stabbing; 3 Palestinians killed in clashes." NBCNews.com: "Al Aqsa Mosque Clashes: 6 Killed as Jerusalem Shrine Tensions Worsen."

    On Sunday, July 2, President Trump tweeted out a meme of himself wrestling WWE Chairman Vince McMahon with the CNN logo over his face. That same day, CNN’s Brian Stelter took to his show Reliable Sources where he and his panel of liberal reporters decried Trump as “dangerous” and a “fascists.” A full week later, Stelter and another stacked panel of journalists were defending CNN’s legally questionable tactics of tracking down the meme creator and threating to reveal his identity. In addition to that, they slammed the outlet’s critics and conflated them with those sending threats of violence to journalists....

    What NBC’s Willie Geist spun as a rundown of the political echo chambers in America on Sunday Today, quickly devolved into a condemnation of the rise of conservative media. “Fake news is a favorite term, as you know, of President Trump. What you consider real and fake in many cases has become a question of where you're sitting and who you're listening to,” declared Geist at the start of the segment. He ignored the fact that the term was first used to describe stories about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. According to him, reporter Hallie Jackson was supposed to...

    Having a bad day? Well, you’ve come to the right place. On Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, conservative pundit Mark Steyn hysterically dismantled CNN’s Russia coverage, arguing it was worse than their Malaysian plane coverage and the only plot twist left is for “Anderson Cooper and Elmo in the CNN space ship” to save “Earth...from the rupture in the space time continuum.” The nearly-seven-minutes of fun kicked off with Steyn making an analogy about CNN selling empty bags of potato chips and then another about Malaysian Airlines Flight 370: They went bananas over that Malaysian plane that disappeared a couple of...

    While speaking to reporters Friday morning at the U.S. Capitol, liberal Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings (Md.) gave his fellow lefties a pep talk and marching orders, telling them that “this is your moment” and “we cannot afford to lose” this fight for America (against President Trump and his supporters).  Cummings spoke following a briefing from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on the firing of FBI Director James Comey and, prior to his mini-speech, complained about the firing having “turned into a mess” and applauded Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel on the Russia investigation. a href=http://www.mrctv.org/videos/liberal-rep-cummings-gives-media-pep-talk-your-momentwe-cannot-afford-lose>Liberal Rep.

    In Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held her own in another pinch-hit appearance for Sean Spicer, tussling with ABC chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl over the timeline for James Comey’s ouster from the FBI.  At one point in the briefing, Huckabee Sanders had clearly moved on from Karl to another reporter, but he nonetheless continued shouting and Huckabee Sanders invited Karl to “trade places” with her. If not, he’d best remain quiet because “I think it's my turn now.”‘I Think It's My Turn Now!’ ABC’s Karl, WH’s Huckabee Sanders Quarrel Over Comey FiringThe...

    Not convinced the media is the opposition party yet? Well, Thursday provided another example as CNN issued a statement disguised as an editorial, blasting President Donald Trump for comments he made about liberal CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon as “beneath the dignity of the office of the President." Reported by Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter, he filled the role of network stenographer: "CNN says President Trump's latest anti-media attacks "are beneath the dignity of the office of the President." "In an interview with Time magazine, Trump insulted CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon and criticized MSNBC's Joe Scarborough....

    During ABC News special report coverage following President Trump’s press conference on Thursday, anchor George Stephanopoulos seemed to be in a state of shock over the commander-in-chief’s hostility to the liberal media: “What a remarkable window into the state of mind of the President of the United States right there....lashed out at the press, made it very clear he thinks the press is dishonest....never seen anything like that.” Special correspondent Matthew Dowd agreed: “No, that was the most amazing press conference by a president I have ever seen and I've been watching it since the mid-70s. And I don't mean...

    On Thursday, President Donald Trump held a marathon press conference, covering a whole host of topics and questions from journalists inside and outside the establishment media.  Both during and afterward, the media meltdowns were palpable.

    New Day Thursday, host Chris Cuomo attacked Republican Ohio Representative Jim Jordan over his party's handling of leaked allegations of communications between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russian officials, which led to Flynn's resignation on Monday. In an interview with the leader of the House Freedom Caucus, Cuomo said that Jordan and his party only want to focus on the source of the leaks instead of the substance of the calls between Flynn and the Russians. "We do not know that Michael Flynn was wiretapped, but it keeps being said by people that want these investigations into the leaks and it deserves to be called out," Cuomo said. CNN's Cuomo...
