About That Study on Media Donations to the Candidates

The Center for Public Integrity put out a report on Monday that Republicans are now using to claim that there is huge media bias for Clinton, and Trump is even using to claim that election is rigged (another one of his "best words" that he doesn't know the meaning of). The Washington Post explains why that study doesn't say what they claim it says. … [Read more...]

Joy Reid Questions Bachmann on Religious Claims, Chris Matthews Makes Me Cringe

The more I see of Joy Reid, the more I love her. She is one of the few people in the news media who will ask bold questions and not accept bullshit talking points for an answer. She asked Michele Bachmann a tough question and Chris Matthews decided to become a jackass (he does that a lot). … [Read more...]

One Fox Host Apologizes for Fake Quote, Another One Repeats It

Apparently hosts at Fox News don't bother to listen to one another, or to fact check their sources before going on the air. Last week Megyn Kelly used a fake quote from Hillary Clinton and, at the end of the show, apologized for it. So three days later, Howard Kurtz cites the same fake quote. … [Read more...]

Fox Warns Hosts on Using Online Polls

Answering Criticisms of My Post About Crappy Liberal ‘News’ Sites

On Sunday I published a post entitled "Please stop sharing links to these sites" and all hell broke loose. As of this writing, it has almost 500 comments on it, most of them either completely missing the point or just outright dumb. This post will answer some of the most common responses. … [Read more...]

Please Stop Sharing Links to These Sites

The liberal side of the internet has a serious problem in the form of far too many websites that people mistake for actual news sites that use clickbait headlines and highly distorted articles to feed into the confirmation bias of their intended audience. And it works. Far too many people, including some of you I'm sure, are falling for it. … [Read more...]

Lewandowski Still Working for Trump

ABC News is now reporting that Corey Lewandowski, who was forced out of the Donald Trump campaign a few months ago in a power struggle with Paul Manafort, is still working for Trump and consults with him every morning -- all while being paid as a talking head on CNN to cover the campaign he's still advising. … [Read more...]

CNN and the Myth of Journalistic ‘Objectivity’

This story is almost a year old but a friend posted a link to it on Facebook and it spurred me to write about a subject I feel very strongly about: The myth of journalistic "objectivity." Last November, CNN suspended one of its reporters for sending out this tweet: … [Read more...]

Fox News Has to Choose Between Kelly and O’Reilly?

Vanity Fair has an interesting article suggesting that Fox News is facing a huge dilemma in the wake of the forced resignation of Roger Ailes. Both Megyn Kelly and Bill O'Reilly, their two biggest stars, are both free agents in a year and they may not be able to keep them both. … [Read more...]

Tantaros Accused O’Reilly of Sexual Harassment

Andrea Tantaros has sued Roger Ailes and Fox News for sexual harassment, with the allegations very similar to those by Gretchen Carlson's suit. But she goes further, accusing others at the network of quid pro quo harassment, including Bill O'Reilly. … [Read more...]
