  • Carl Bernstein: We’ve never had a president who lies like Trump

    The Hill ^ | 02/11/2018 | Brett Samuels
    Journalist Carl Bernstein on Sunday expressed doubts that President Trump would sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, citing the president’s “compulsive, continual lying.” “I think many of us will believe it when we see him sit down with Mueller. Look, we have no reason to believe almost anything that DT says. What is so extraordinary about him and his presidency is the incessant, compulsive, continual lying,” Bernstein said on CNN. “We’ve never had a president who lies like this, certainly in the modern era. Even Nixon,” the Watergate reporter added.
  • New California bill could serve as national boilerplate for skirting Trump’s tax law

    01/05/2018 6:55:15 AM PST · by MNDude · 95 replies
    A California Senate leader introduced legislation Thursday aimed at circumventing a central plank in the new Republican tax law, introducing a model that — if successful — could be replicated across the country. California Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León (D) introduced a bill that would allow taxpayers to make a charitable donation to the California Excellence Fund instead of paying certain state taxes. They could then deduct that contribution from their federal taxable income.
  • Blatant Media Bias from The WaPo & CNN in Reporting Comey's Memos Had Classified Information

    07/10/2017 11:53:18 PM PDT · by Pinkbell · 7 replies
    I now bring  you two blatant examples of media bias regarding the news that just came out about James Comey's personal memos containing classified information.  The first comes from the Washington Post and the second comes from CNN.  We all know the media loves covering anonymously sourced stories if they are negative towards the President.  CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and NBC News recycle each others' anonymously sourced stories all the time, even though they sometimes turn out to be false.  However, this shows the disparity in how they cover an anonymously sourced story if it is...

    This Week in the News You wouldnÂ’t know it by watching the news, but there are actually important things going on in the world that have nothing to do with the Presidential election. Today, weÂ’ll talk about some of these non-election-related events on Survival Saturday, like the Dakota access pipeline, Russia, Venezuela, and our dystopian future.For election coverage, go on over to my other website,, which is all Hillary, all the time, right up until the election.

  • MSNBC Deletes Scarborough Criticism of NBC’s ‘Cooked’ Poll Helping Hillary

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    During the opening 6AM segment of today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough accused NBC of having “cooked” its current poll to favor Hillary Clinton. But at 8AM when Morning Joe replayed that opening segment, Scarborough’s criticism of the NBC poll . . . had disappeared. Instead, the video jumped ahead to Mika Brzezinski’s reading of the poll results themselves, which showed Hillary Clinton with an 11-14% lead. Scarborough’s point was that NBC sampled only during the height of the hot mic hysteria, but didn’t include sampling from after the debate, widely viewed as having been won by Trump. Joe obviously knew he...
  • Mark Halperin: Press 'Biased Against' Hillary

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Any would-be Republican presidential candidate who had--hanging around his neck--all the scandals and investigations that surround Hillary Clinton, would likely not have the chutzpah to throw his hat into the ring. He would know that the MSM would create such a toxic environment that his candidacy would never have a chance of getting off the ground. And so it is somewhere between amusing and outrageous to hear Mark Halperin claim, as he did on today's With All Due Respect, that the press is "biased against" Hillary Clinton. Granted, Halperin did so in the context of discussing this evening's Dem debate...

    It must be nice to be a Democrat. Aside from the being an idiot part. And the hating America part, the loathing the military part, the despising success part, the envy, the hatred and the anger parts too.

  • Scarborough: Biased Debate Moderators Haven't Been Problem in the Past

    When this NewsBuster began preparing today's item, the focus was going to be on Joe Scarborough's statement on today's Morning Joe that "90% of the people in our business vote for Democrats and Democratic primaries." Not that it was something we didn't already know [though query whether even 10% of MSMers are Republicans], but refreshing to hear it so starkly stated. But preparing the video clip, something more stunning emerged. Scarborough actually suggested that the problem of biased debate moderators is something new: "this is not something we've had a problem with in the past." Say what? Do the names...

    Al Gore said President Barack Obama was forced to be cautious during his first term in office because of the “propaganda” served up by Fox News and talk radio that created a “hostile environment for progressive ideas.” The former vice president — who has been on somewhat of a media whirlwind since the sale his Current TV to Arab news network Al-Jazeera — made the comment during an interview to promote his latest book with PBS’ Charlie Rose this week in New York. “I think it has been a pretty hostile environment for progressive ideas,” Gore said. “And why is...
  • A Scandal Too Far: Steve Capus Terminated as NBC News President

    02/02/2013 6:56:57 AM PST · by Mozilla · 26 replies ^ | February 2, 2013 | John Nolte/Robert Stacy McCain
    The New York Times spins it this way: The longest-serving president of any of the three network news divisions, Steve Capus of NBC News, stepped down from his position on Friday, six months after Comcast restructured its news units in a way that diminished his authority. Exactly how voluntary was this “stepping down”? John Nolte points to the scandal-plagued tenure of Capus at NBC News: 1. During last year’s presidential election, Andrea Mitchell was caught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed. 2. During last year’s GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him...

    rlier this month, FreedomWorks covered a suspect symposium being sponsored by a pro-Obamacare organization, designed to provide journalists with "specialized education in health care reporting”. The anticipation of media bias was palpable. The symposium, sponsored by the Commonwealth Fund, hosted by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW), held at Reuters headquarters in New York City, and with a featured student body of 17 mainstream reporters - including the Dallas Morning News, Reuters, and Money Magazine - has since come to pass, and the concerns of blatant media bias should be even more heightened in the aftermath. The SABEW has posted...

    What the hell was the Presidential Commission on Debates thinking? I realize it is hard to find any MSM person who is neutral much less perceived as neutral, but really … this person will moderate one of three presidential debates? She claimed to be reciting what unnamed Republicans were saying privately, but that’s the oldest trick in the book when a “news” person wants to insert her own opinion into a story without having to say its her own opinion.Video at linkNewsbusters has a good history of how every Republican Veep nominee gets attacked by the MSM: Video at link

    MRC ^ | 7/20/2012 | Scott Whitlock
    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 a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect." [Update: Ross has now admitted his error on live ABC coverage.]
  • This Week's MSM Bias Award Goes to George Stephanopoulos

    We've been dealing with liberal media bias for years, but George Stephanopoulos' performance in the Republican presidential debate Saturday night in New Hampshire was particularly egregious. In many of these MSM-moderated debates, liberal moderators have tried to stir up personal fights between candidates, which diverts our focus from more important issues and, before national television audiences, shifts attention far away from Barack Obama and his disastrous agenda. Yes, these are debates among Republicans and designed to bring out distinctions among the candidates, but it should be up to the candidates to initiate and define those distinctions, and it is improper...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Mitch McConnell does not high-five easily or often. But a deal to keep American workers' taxes from rising on Jan. 1 was reason enough for the coolest negotiator in the Senate to lift a hand on camera and slap - or pat - some skin. His celebration was premature. Furious House Republicans said McConnell's deal for a two-month extension of payroll tax cuts is 10 months too few. They are prepared to let everyone's Social Security taxes rise an average $20 a week for a while if that's what it takes to extend the cut for...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Mitt Romney accuses President Barack Obama of considering America "just another nation." To other GOP politicians running for the White House, Obama has apologized for the United States and is presiding over the nation's decline. Now comes the counteroffensive. The president of the United States is defending his faith in America, confronting GOP efforts to undercut his leadership and raise questions about his patriotism as he seeks re-election. In the battle over "American exceptionalism," Obama used a recent trip to Asia to highlight America's role as the strongest and most influential nation on earth. In this...

    One of the authors of Politico’s smear piece on Herman Cain about alleged “inappropriate behavior” in the 1990s was Ken Vogel. If your read any of Vogel’s pieces at Politico they are usual smear articles on either Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and other conservatives. So it’s only fitting that according to CNSNEWS, Ken Vogel is a George Soros disciple. Vogel used to work for the George Soros-funded Center for Public Integrity in Washington. Consider the source: Ken Vogel of Politico used to work for the George Soros-funded Center for Public Integrity in Washington and has been involved...
  • Fact Check! Herman Cain’s Ice Cream Meltdown (BARF alert!!!)

    ABC News ^ | Oct 13, 2011 | By John Berman
    Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain might be in the midst of his campaign’s first crisis, all thanks to ice cream. Now leading in at least one national poll, Cain is frequently asked if he is the new political flavor of the month. Cain’s canned response is: “Haagen-Dazs black walnut tastes good all the time.” Here’s the problem: Haagen Dazs no longer makes black walnut ice cream. It was a limited edition, and is no longer available. So, in a manner of speaking, you might say that Haagen Dazs black walnut was – by definition – a flavor of the month.

    As Herman Cain climbs the polls in the Republican primary, he is receiving increased attention from Republican voters, adversaries in the field and, it seems, the staging department of Tuesday's Washington Post/Bloomberg debate at Dartmouth College. Cain's rise to second in recent national polling means he has earned a spot next to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in tomorrow night's debate, ABC News is reporting. Gov. Rick Perry (Texas), whose numbers have been in freefall since the last GOP debate, has been edged to the right of Cain, meaning he'll be paired across the table from fellow Texan Rep. Ron...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Sunday that he should not have stayed silent after the audience at a GOP debate booed a gay soldier serving in Iraq. The Georgia businessman told ABC's "This Week" that it would have been "appropriate" for him to have defended the soldier. None of the candidates on stage at the Sept. 22 forum responded to the boos. "In retrospect, because of the controversy it has created and because of the different interpretations that it could have had, yes, that probably — that would have been appropriate," Cain said, when asked if...
