WashPost Skips Reporter Dave Weigel’s History of Snotty Bias After False Trump Tweet

<p><em>The Washington Post </em>reported on its own reporter’s Fake News on Saturday night, but they left something important out as they huffed that President Trump calling for Dave Weigel to be fired. Back in 2010, Weigel resigned (with a push) from the <em>Post</em> when “JournoList” emails came out showing profound hatred for conservatives...the ones the Post assigned him to cover.</p>

WashPost Tries to Shift Fake-News Blame from CNN to Donald Trump Jr.

<p><em>The Washington Post </em>enjoys playing the game “Heads We Win, Tails You Lose” when anonymous sources lead journalists into looking stupid. The<em> Post,</em> among others, exposed how CNN reported an embarrassingly inaccurate story about Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks, using anonymous sources. When Trump Jr. responded by speculating on those sources, the <em>Post </em>wrote a snippy article (and tweets) on how Donald Jr. slammed CNN “without evidence.” The sources are <em>anonymous</em> -- they are<em> hiding</em> the evidence.</p>

Gay Filmmaker’s Christmas Curse: Soften a Conservative Relative By Licking Their Chair

<p>The headline in the Washington Post commuter tabloid Express was “Did this man just lick your chair?” That’s because gay filmmaker John Waters joked that he believes in a “Christmas curse” on the conservative relatives. When they leave the room, you lick their chair so they "soften politically."</p>

More Fake News at CNN: Cooper Shows Wrong Photo for Trump Press Aide Raj Shah

<p>CNN is on a bad streak of faking news. Coming out of the Manu Raju mess, Thursday night’s <em>Anderson Cooper 360</em> was displaying a quote from Trump press aide Raj Shah….but the picture on screen was Rajiv Shah, an administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development under Obama. His Twitter is also Raj Shah, but he's now president of the Rockefeller Foundation. Surely CNN doesn’t want to suggest it can’t figure out its Shahs.</p>

‘Morning Joe’ Regular Harold Ford Fired by Morgan Stanley in Harassment Probe

<p>Former Democratic congressman and MSNBC <em>Morning Joe</em> regular Harold Ford Jr. has been fired for misconduct by Morgan Stanley after facing a human resources investigation. “He has been terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies,” a spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley told Huffington Post in an email.</p>

Gush for New York Times Obama Book: ‘Integrity Like His Cannot Be Photoshopped’

<p><em>The New York Times </em>eventually came around to publishing a review of a book it published in June titled <em>Obama: The Call of History,</em> a photo book with text by<em> Times</em> reporter Peter Baker. The reviewer was Rutgers professor James Goodman, who gushed like a good liberal Democrat about how much his late mother would love this coffee-table valentine. "Integrity like his cannot be photoshopped or feigned."</p>

Lauer Told NBC Bosses He Was ‘Racking His Brain’ for Memories of Harassment

<p>Even as Matt Lauer’s career has gone off the rails into disgrace, the lying is still something to behold. NBC News reported that when executives asked Lauer directly if there ever was any sexual misconduct, Lauer denied it, saying he was “racking his brain and couldn’t think of anything at all,” one executive said.</p>

NY Times Pushes Feminist Kvetch: Media Sex Harassers Like Lauer, Rose Defeated Hillary

<p>The most ridiculous spin exercise emerging from the Matt Lauer/Charlie Rose scandal is that somehow this is why Hillary Clinton lost, the lecherous male journalists beat her. <em>The New York Times</em> – the same newspaper that publicly devoted itself to electing Hillary Clinton on the front page – turned to feminist writer Jill Filipovic for an editorial on how sexist media bias is to blame for Hillary’s loss. “The latest harassment and assault allegations complicate that account and suggest that perhaps many of the high-profile media men covering Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump were the ones leading with their genitals.”</p>

Mark Levin Slams Media Gushing Over Mueller’s ‘Mickey Mouse Investigation,’ Flynn Plea Deal

<p>Mark Levin slammed the media on his national radio show Friday night for gushig all over special counsel Robert Mueller and his prodding former national security adviser Mike Flynn to plead guilty to making false statements to the FBI. But he noted Flynn was talking about contacts with Russians during the transition, which proves nothing about colluding before the election.</p>

WashPost Omits Virginia Abortion Mill Transformed Into Free Family Clinic

<p>Two years ago, I noted The Washington Post couldn’t find any staffers or any space to cover the closing of Amethyst Health Center for Women, the abortion clinic near my home in Manassas, Virginia. And now, the Post again could not find space when this former abortion clinic was blessed by the local Catholic bishop Michael Burbidge as the new Mother of Mercy Free Clinic. To pro-lifers, it felt like a modern miracle, decades of prayer answered.</p>

Fresh Air?? NPR Show Obsesses Over Anita Hill, Elides Media Harassers

<p>In the midst of all the sexual harassment shockers emerging from the media, Hollywood, and politics, the Left is still hailing Anita Hill as the patron saint of sexual harassment. An especially egregious case unfolded on Thursday afternoon, as the NPR show <em>Fresh Air with Terry Gross</em> spent a half-hour re-litigating Clarence Thomas as a harasser with his old journalistic nemesis Jane Mayer (now with <em>The New Yorker</em>) and feminist author Rebecca Traister.The online summary was headlined “For Years, Anita Hill Was A 'Canary In The Coal Mine' For Women Speaking Out.” Only after they’d exhausted two-thirds of the hour on Hill-Thomas, did they turn to the harassment controversies that are not 26 years old.</p>

WashPost Offers Emotional Support for Those Emotionally Supporting Abortions

<p><em>Washington Post</em> correspondent Monica Hesse specializes in pro-abortion valentines. Two years ago, Hesse penned a long, sympathetic story on a Wyoming woman who drove 400 miles to seek an abortion in Montana. On Wednesday, the Style section was dominated by a Hesse story headlined “Lending a hand at the end of a pregnancy: Doulas offer women support during abortions.”</p>

Creepy Garrison Keillor Gets the Boot

<p>The sexual-harassment allegations inside public radio continue to reverberate. On Wednesday, Minnesota Public Radio announced they would “cut all business ties” with snobbish liberal public-radio legend Garrison Keillor – a year after he retired from his show <em>A Prairie Home Companion</em> – as they investigate a report of "inappropriate behavior" by Keillor involving someone who worked with him on his show.</p>

MRC’s Brent Bozell: O’Keefe Prank on WashPost Is ‘Shameful’ Act of Deceit

<p>MRC president Brent Bozell sharply criticized James O'Keefe and his organization Project Veritas on Tuesday for a botched attempt at exposing a liberal tilt at The Washington Post. A woman claimed to have been impregnated by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, but the Post became suspicious of the prank and brought their own cameras to an interview. They also caught the woman, Jaime Phillips, walking into Project Veritas headquarters in New York. Bozell's criticism was reported by the Associated Press.</p>

Cokie Roberts Admits: All Female Reporters Knew Not to Get In Elevator with Conyers

<p>Christine Rousselle at Townhall noticed that on Sunday's This Week, longtime reporter Cokie Roberts implied that leftist Rep. John Conyers pawing women on the elevator was an open secret among women in the press corps. Conyers entered the House of Representatives at the dawn of 1965, and is now 88 years old. </p>

Liberals Freak Out at New York Times ‘Normalizing’ a Neo-Nazi in Ohio

<p><em>The New York Times</em> quickly came under fire from its own liberal audience Sunday for an article profiling a neo-Nazi in southwestern Ohio. It wasn’t a puff piece – the headline was “A Voice of Hate in America’s Heartland” – but <em>Times</em> reporter Richard Fausset did call the subject, Tony Hovater, “the Nazi sympathizer next door, polite and low-key.” One photo showed Hovater shopping in a Safeway. One complained "How to normalize Nazis 101!"</p> <p>By lunchtime, the “Reader Center” of the Times had posted a reaction piece headlined “Readers Accuse Us of Normalizing a Nazi Sympathizer; We Respond.” </p>

Two Journalism Schools Rescind Their Awards to Harassing Charlie Rose

<p><em>The New York Times </em>reported two colleges decided on Friday to withdraw their recent journalism honors for sexually harassing CBS morning anchor and PBS talk show host Charlie Rose. Arizona State University’s journalism school announced it was rescinding the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism that it gave to Rose in 2015. The University of Kansas journalism school is taking back its William Allen White National Citation, awarded earlier this year.</p>

FALSE? PolitiFact Mocks Mrs. Roy Moore on Doug Jones Backing ‘Full-Term Abortions’

<p>PolitiFact slammed Roy Moore’s wife Kayla Moore as “False” for saying at a rally that Alabama’s Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones supports “full-term abortion.” They concluded “Moore measured Jones against a term that is disconnected from reality.” During his campaign, Jones has stood with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s loudest and largest advocate of abortion on demand.</p>

Holiday Guilt Trip: WashPost Promotes Native American Take on ‘Hatesgiving’ Food

<p>On Thanksgiving, Washington Post readers turned to the front page of the Style section for the annual “Native American” lecture on “Hatesgiving.” It was a food article by Maura Judkis. The online headline was “Native American chefs lament 'Columbusing'of indigenous foods.”</p>

Time Editor Bleats the Koch Brothers Will Ruin His Life (and Earth) by Buying Time

<p>The Koch brothers might be part of buying <em>Time</em> magazine, and a former Time science editor is so panicked he wrote an article for the leftist magazine <em>The Nation</em> titled "Don't Let the Koch Brothers Buy <em>Time</em> Magazine." Charles Alexander wrote about how his life’s work of screaming environmental bias may be about to go down the drain:</p>

On Thanksgiving, Actress Olivia Wilde Begs Ivanka Trump for a ‘Clean DREAM Act’

<p>Microsoft's aggregating site MSN.com was promoting at the top of its page on Friday an article from People magazine that actress Olivia Wilde was lobbying Ivanka Trump for a "clean DREAM act." Wilde, who's best known for four years on the Fox medical drama House, is the daughter of radical-left journalists Andrew and Leslie Cockburn. The 33-year-old actress called out Ivanka Trump in a Thanksgiving Day Instagram post after realizing the president's daughter was following her.</p>

TIME Honors Hillary Clinton’s ‘What Happened’ As ‘Top Non-Fiction Book’ of the Year

<p><em>Time</em> magazine is already celebrating their Best of 2017, and their favorite "Non-Fiction" book of the year is....Hillary Clinton's campaign memoir <em>What Happened. Time </em>assistant managing editor Claire Howorth gushed, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history." It came complete with buying instructions from Amazon, and Hillary Clinton quickly tweeted out how "honored" she was!</p>

NPR Finally Takes Juanita Broaddrick Seriously, But Hillary’s Spokesman Scoffs

<p>On Wednesday morning, NPR's <em>Morning Edition </em>suddenly revisited Juanita Broaddrick's story as something that wasn't exactly disproved. Morning host Steve Inskeep brought on longtime Hillary Clinton spokesman Phillippe Reines to discuss his attack on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who turned on the Clintons and said Bill should have resigned in the wake of the Lewinsky scandal.</p>

Diversity? NPR Runs ‘Source of the Week’ Blog to Promote Leftist Minority Experts

<p>National Public Radio runs a blog dedicated to promoting minority experts, primarily Experts of Color (with a white female or two thrown in). It's called "Source of the Week: Helping Create Content That Looks and Sounds Like America." It also has a Twitter account. Except....don't try to find the conservative half of America</p>

WashPost Reporter Makes Unauthorized Appearance at Secretive Leftist Confab

<p>Brent Scher at the Washington Free Beacon reports that <em>Washington Post</em> political reporter Janell Ross participated without her newspaper’s knowledge in a November 16 panel discussion at a secretive California meeting of the leftist Democracy Alliance. It was a lunch panel titled “Getting the Economic Narrative Right.” Ross was the only reporter on the panel.</p>

‘Cringeworthy’: Politico Columnist Horrified by New York Times ‘Groveling to Their Readers’ In Ads

<p>Politico magazine’s Jack Shafer wrote an article Tuesday announcing "<em>New York Times</em> Journalists Are Groveling to Their Readers. That's Pathetic." Shafer described his horror at getting a piece of mail from the <em>Times,</em> and the writer was columnist Nicholas Kristof, pandering to the incredible smarts of anyone who would decide to subscribe to the old Gray Lady.</p>

Flashback: Samantha Bee Made Fun of Creepy, Pawing ‘Charlie Rose Clones’

<p>The NewsBusters staff was passing around an old YouTube video from Samantha Bee that she taped with Charlie Rose in his Bloomberg studios last year. It was titled "What Are You Hiding, Charlie Rose?" She asked to turn up the lights in the typically black backdrop, and was frightened to discover a crowd of "Charlie Rose clones." One clone even paws her on the shoulder: "Hi, I'm Charlie Rose." The original Rose then says "He likes you!"</p>

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Lashes Out at ‘Sexual Raptor’ Clarence Thomas

<p>This article was all but inevitable. MSNBC host Joy Reid took to The Daily Beast to insist “As We Rethink Old Harassers, Let’s Talk About Clarence Thomas.” By the standard of today’s outrageous allegations, Anita Hill’s still-unproven charges didn’t include rape, or sexual touching. They were all about<em> talking </em>– talking about porn films or making jokes about pubic hairs. But somehow Reid concluded that he and Donald Trump were “sexual raptors.” But people accused of rape, like Bill Clinton? He already “paid a price.”</p>

NY Times Review of Ivana Trump’s Book: Eek, We’re ‘Held Hostage by a Throbbing Blister’!

<p>In May, <em>The New York Times</em> published two poison-pen reviews of Ivanka Trump's book <em>Women Who Work.</em> Jessa Crispin (Twitter handle @theBookSlut) ranted it sounded like “the scrambled Tumblr feed of a demented 12-year-old.” So it's not surprising that the <em>Times </em>would slam her mother Ivana's new book <em>Raising Trump, </em>complete with her ex-husband described as a "throbbing blister."</p>

WashPost: Moore and Trump Ruin Christians, But ‘Women Are Better Off with Franken’

<p>The<em> Washington Post </em>Outlook opinion section on Sunday really demonstrates that this newspaper is deeply invested in Democratic Party spin. Editor Adam Kushner published pieces on how "Roy Moore's whole career has been a con job," and Trump is "warping American Christianity," but also "Women are better off with Franken in office." </p>

Syrupy! Mediaite Puffs Chris Cuomo: He’s Nonpartisan? And Fights Like Muhammad Ali?

<p>Is Mediaite owned by CNN? On Friday, the website posted an interview with CNN morning anchor Chris Cuomo that sounded like an in-house CNN newsletter. Or maybe Joe DePaolo was measurably gushier than a CNN press release. The headline was "Mediaite Profile: CNN New Day’s Chris Cuomo is a Fighter." They compared Cuomo to Muhammad Ali in his interviewing skills, and bizarrely insisted he's not a partisan. DePaolo never got around to asking if perhaps viewers could suspect he's a Democrat, since his father and brother have been liberal-Democrat governors of New York. </p>

David Brooks on PBS: Roy Moore’s Christian Backers Guilty of ‘Heresy’ and ‘Idolatry’

<p>They began the week-in-review segment on Friday’s PBS NewsHour with the Al Franken groping scandal, and both liberal Mark Shields and pseudoconservative David Brooks felt that Franken’s offense was minor compared to the Roy Moores and Bill Clintons…and Donald Trumps. Brooks repeated his recent line that Clinton’s impunity in these matters in the 1990s created a hostile environment for all women – and then added a new spin for “balance.” Christian defenders of Roy Moore at this point are practicing “idolatry" and are simply “heretics.”</p>

Franken’s ‘Funny’ Photo Could Have Ruined Him In 2008 Senate Race

<p>Imagine if LeeAnn Tweeden’s picture of Al Franken groping her breasts for laughs while she slept on a 2006 military plane flight had come out during his 2008 Senate campaign. The election result was so disputed that Franken wasn’t seated in the Senate until July of 2009. Add that picture, and the Senate wouldn’t have an Al Franken harassment problem today.</p>

Spike Lee in Time: ‘Agent Orange’ Trump ‘Giving a Green Light’ to the KKK to Come Out

<p>The November 20 issue of <em>Time</em> offers the usual bucket of liberal "goodies" – a profile of Trump-trashing Gold Star Dad Khizr Khan and his new book, a book excerpt from Dan Rather, and a glowing review of Pete Souza’s book chronicling his amazing days as White House photographer to the one and only Barack Obama – “born out of scraps of history and hope,” <em>Time</em> said when he won. Then there was a spicy “Conversation” with black filmmakers Spike Lee and Dee Rees to celebrate their new work featured on Netflix. It wouldn’t be long before talk of Amerikkka and racism.</p>

Gag-Me Gift: Joe Scarborough to Release Trump-Mocking Christmas Songs

<p>MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is doing a Trump-trashing Christmas album -- or EP, meaning "not enough songs for a real album." It's called <em>A Very Drumpf Christmas</em>, with cover art making Donald Trump into the Grinch. It brings to mind the old Norm McDonald <em>Saturday Night </em>Live mockery of Kenny G Christmas records: "Happy birthday, Jesus! Hope you like crap!"</p>

Former NY Times Reporter Mocks NewsBusters For Treating New Info as… New

<p>The liberal website Vox published an interview with former <em>New York Times </em>legal reporter Linda Greenhouse, and the headline surely applauded her liberal take on journalism: "The most respected Supreme Court reporter of her generation slams media 'objectivity'.” Greenhouse oddly mocked my blog on NewsBusters for treating her revelation of monthly donations to Planned Parenthood as not new...when everyone knew about it inside <em>The New York Times. </em></p>

WashPost Media Columnist: Moore Accusers Brave, Clinton Accusers ‘Surreal’ and ‘Twisted’

<p>Women speaking courageously about sexual harassment is highly rewarded in media circles right now. Roy Moore's accusers in <em>The Washington Post</em> have been hailed as brave and credible....especially by The Washington Post. Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan wrote another Team Player column about how her newspaper's sources should be honored. Somehow, Sullivan can't remember that last year, she smeared Bill Clinton's accusers when Donald Trump brought them to an event before the second presidential debate. She called them participants in a "truth-averse" Steve Bannon exercise, a "surreal gathering, a "twisted version of the Last Supper."</p>

Axios Liberals Claim Politics ‘Went Insane’ Starting With Rise of Gingrich and Fox News

<p>Mike Allen, the former <em>New York Times </em>political reporter and Politico guru, sent a “Special Report” to his Axios.com email subscribers headlined “How American politics went insane, in 6 steps.” That was the cleaned-up version. Inside the e-mail it was how politics went “bat [guano] crazy.” Allen huffed and puffed that “ There are lots of reasons American politics went off the rails, but his boss at Politico and now his co-founder at Axios, former <em>Washington Post</em> reporter Jim VandeHei, has proclaimed “six seminal events” caused our current insanity.</p>
